WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Crisis in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), where all other member nations have sanctioned Qatar, is the subject of a new documentary produced by PIC Media that has achieved a reach of over 10 million online and is now available to viewers through Amazon.com, and will be given away to attendees of "Countering Violent Extremism: Qatar, Iran, and the Muslim Brotherhood," a day-long conference sponsored by the Hudson Institute, Monday, October 23, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.
Qatar: A Dangerous Alliance is an authoritative account of Qatar's troubled relationship with its neighbors, as well as the United States, where it is counted as an ally in some circumstances but also finances terrorism, promotes radical Islamism through its support of the Muslim Brotherhood and state-run Al Jazeera television network, and harbors terrorists. The film is produced by PIC Media, which has a history of creating compelling documentaries. Among leading experts interviewed, the documentary features Hudson Institute senior fellows Ambassador Husain Haqqani and Lee Smith.
"The response to this documentary indicates how critical the issue is to peace and stability not only in the Middle East but throughout the world," said William Nixon, who wrote and directed the film. "It has not only been popular online, with worldwide viewership, but was also picked up by network TV and now Amazon.com. We are grateful for the support from subject matter experts at the Hudson Institute, Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and The Middle East Institute, and we are pleased to be able to show our appreciation by making commemorative gift copies available to all attendees of the upcoming conference on countering violent extremism."
Featured speakers at the Monday conference include Leon E. Panetta, former U.S. Secretary of Defense; General David H. Petraeus; and Stephen K. Bannon, former White House Chief Strategist. More information about the event can be found at www.Hudson.org.
