Qatar Plan to Invest in Muslim Populated Paris Suburbs Makes Some French Uneasy
by Amy Bracken
A Qatari proposal that the Arab League put a billion dollars into Muslim and Arab interests in Jerusalem has, unsurprisingly, angered some Israeli leaders.
Oil-rich Qatar invests extensively around the world without a hitch. One of the largest recipients of Qatari money is France, where the Gulf state bankrolls media and construction companies and owns Paris-Saint Germain, now one of the world's richest soccer clubs.
But France is also another example of how efforts to support largely Muslim populations in non-Muslim countries can raise hackles.
