Khamis Khanjar; Qatari-Iranian surrogate rears Sunni champion

The Iraqi business mogul Khamis Khanjar has called on Iraqi to update their personal information to be able to take part in the upcoming elections.

The move which is seen by many analysts as a sign of political draft In Iraq.


"This is your constitutional right, which is the real guarantee to prevent the return of the corrupt figures or the losers", he tweeted on Sunday.


دعوة مخلصة لكل جماهير شعبنا للمشاركة في تحديث سجلات الناخبين واستلام بطاقاتهم الانتخابية، فهذا حقكم الدستوري، وهو الضمانة الحقيقية لمنع عودة الفاسدين او الفاشلين، بيدكم التغيير فلا تضيعوه.

Khanjar’s emergence from backroom indicates he wants to hijack the scene for his own benifit, analysts said.

Sunni multimillionaire

Khanjar’s net worth is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. His assets include manufacturing, banking, financial services and commercial and residential real estate across the Middle East, Europe and North Africa.


Sources claim his family built its fortune by setting up front companies for members of Saddam Hussein’s regime in the 1990s.

In June, reports said he wants to use his multi-million dollar fortune to create an autonomous region for Iraq’s Sunnis.

It became clear now he is just part of Iranian scheme under the guise of defending Sunni rights, experts said.

Qatar's surrogate 

Khanjar is a Sunni multimillionaire but he is acting like a tool in hands of the Muslim Brotherhood group backed by Qatar.

He is Iraqi but his loyalty is for Qatar rather than Iraq, other observers said.


Qatar is involved in supporting terrorism and providing shelter to terror groups such as Hamas, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Houthis and extremist Shiite groups in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, a report by the Henry Jackson International Association revealed.

Doha also deals with suspicious figures, including businessman Khamis Khanjar, who is a key source of instability in Iraq, the report added.

A new alliance bringing together previously conflicting parties with Qatari and Iranian encouragement in the making to impede rapprochement of Prime Minister Haider Abadi with Saudi Arabia, sources said.

The new Sunni alliance is sponsored by Qatar and is led by Khamis al-Khanjar. 

Khanjar role in Iraq is now exposed and he has to step away, analysts persisted.
