The two leaders held a 2.5 hour long closed-door meeting after having dinner together, attended by Energy and Natural Resources Minister Berat Albayrak.

"The boycott was motivated by the damage caused by Qatar's irresponsible behaviour in supporting, funding and providing shelter to terrorists and terrorist organisations, which is what pushed our countries to make the decision to boycott Qatar".

He added that if the emir and crown prince truly "seeks to improve the tarnished image of his country, let him address two issues that are now of major concern to the Jewish community: Let him declare the jihadi ideology of Al Jazeera unacceptable, and let him proclaim Qaradawi's Zionophobia a form of racism". Muzin is known for his strong ties with Republican Senator Ted Cruz.

Israeli sources stated that this campaign is opposed by several US Jewish far right leaders especially the Zionist Organization of America and its leader Mort Klein who refused to meet with the Qataris.

Analysts and experts have suggested al-Hail is being supported by the Arab countries now boycotting Qatar, something he denies. In a statement on September 7 announcing the initiative, Muzin said he believed that the Qataris were "sincere" in their desire to improve relations with "the USA and the Jewish community worldwide". "They need to change the format of Al Jazeera, their TV station, which incites against Israel".

According to PR news site O'Dwyer's, Muzin's firm will receive $50,000 per month to represent Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar on June 5, suspending air and shipping routes with the world's biggest exporter of liquefied natural gas, which is home to the region's biggest USA military base.
