Merkel says "No" to Qatar's bid to host 2022 World cup
Cairo -  A few weeks before the holding of the German Federal elections, German chancellor and current presidential candidate, said during the final debate with her rival Martin Schulz that she does not approve of Qatar hosting the 2022 World Cup. 

The German chancellor has repeatedly denounced Qatar's hosting rights of the 2022 World Cup after it was internationally recognized as a state that harbors and sponsors terrorism. 

In addition, the German newspaper, Bild, had come up with a bombshell report in which it claimed that Qatar’s World Cup bid process was inherently corrupt amid allegations of bribery and corruption. 

Weeks after their boycott to Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, Mauritania and Bahrain previously asked FIFA to deny Doha the 2022 World Cup hosting rights. 

Following the Arab boycott of Doha, a list of 13-demands was handed to Doha’s government by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain for reconciliation, which includes the closing of Al-Jazeera broadcasting, and the suspension of its relationship with the extremist government of Iran. 

Since then, Qatar has resisted conciliation attempts and has not shown any effort in disassociating itself from the terrorist groups that the quartet claims are harbored and financially supported by Doha.
