If there is a state sponsor of terrorism not officially designated as such, the nation of Qatar would certainly be in the top two. Nonetheless, Great Britain is set to be home to a Mega-Palace after the Qatari Royal Family purchased three very large homes and plans to consolidate them into one large mansion.
According to a report in the Daily Mail:
They already own more of London than the Crown Estate.
And Qatar’s royal family are now planning their own British palace in the capital as well.
The Gulf state’s rulers have submitted plans to convert three prime properties in London’s Regent’s Park into a huge mansion, set to become the UK’s first £200million home.
Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, 55, one of the three wives of Qatar’s former emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, bought the homes for an estimated £120million last year.
The Arab royal, who met the Queen at Windsor Palace in 2010, has now hired architects and lawyers to oversee a transformation of the properties into one 33,000 sq ft mansion, boasting a spa, heated swimming pool, beauty salon, butler and nanny quarters, a children’s floor, games rooms, powder rooms, massage areas, two lifts and a gymnasium.
Her family also own the Shard, the tallest skyscraper in Europe, Harrods and the Olympic Village.
The 13 bedroom palace will be the London home of Sheikh Hamad’s son and Qatar’s current emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, 34, who was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst.
Perhaps this provides yet even more anecdotal evidence that demonstrates why the likes of Prime Minister Cameron is so deferential to Islam at the expense of his own country. There’s nothing quite like selling out a country’s rich history to figures who have nothing but contempt for that history. This is about conquest, just as the ground zero mosque was supposed to be:
When completed, the mansion is expected to be the most valuable residential property in London in private hands.
It is likely to be worth more than the most high profile investments of recent times in the capital – including Dudley House on Park Lane, a grade II-listed mansion which was also bought and renovated by Sheikh Hamad, 62, and is valued at £200 million.
It is expected to be worth about double the highest selling residential property in the UK – a penthouse at One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, which sold in May this year for about £140 million.
The Qatari royal family bought the three properties – 1, 2 and 3 Cornwall Terrace – last year.
The Grade 1 listed buildings were designed and built in the 1820s by Decimus Burton, the protégé of John Nash, the architect who designed Buckingham Palace. It was named after King George IV, whose titles included the Duke of Cornwall.
As Shoebat.com has reported, Qatar is an incredibly dangerous nation to western civilization. The spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood has been given safe harbor there for years and has his own show on the Brotherhood’s propaganda network Al-Jazeera. Moreover, leaders of Hamas – an officially designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) – are given refuge in Qatar as well.
