Jamal Khashoggi – the Disappearance, the Questions
Jamal Khashoggi was a native Saudi. Though he lived in the United States, he was not a citizen. He did a few columns for the Washington Post, and he didn’t care for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. When he went to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2 to get papers for his upcoming marriage, he disappeared.
UPDATE: The Saudi Government has confirmed the death of Jamal Khashoggi and says it resulted from an argument. They’ve established a commission to investigate, and have relieve the Deputy of Intelligence Services Maj. Gen. Ahmed al-Assiri from his duties. At least 18 people have been detained for investigation.
Turkey claims to have evidence that he was murdered and dismembered by a 15 man execution team in the Saudi consulate. They say they have recordings, including one made from his Apple wristwatch that supposedly reveals the gruesome murder, according to NBC.
The Saudis deny Khashoggi was killed at the Consulate or that they did it. Yet one of the Prince’s entourage was spotted entering the Consulate just prior to Khashoggi going there according to Fox.
Turkey claims they have never allowed anyone to hear that recording, except they claim to have given a transcript of it to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo…whose office denied he ever listened to it or got a copy of the transcript, according to ABC. Of course, then Turkey denied giving it to him as well.
Countries are pulling out of the Saudi investment conference over the situation.
Then there’s Erdogan, the ‘President’ of Turkey: at one point he reportedly had at least 50,000 political prisoners. He launched a crusade against 300 journalists. He went after professors, judges, law enforcement, the military, and anyone else in his way. The failed coup was his blank check. But they claim total innocence in the matter.
Daniel Greenfield, Jewish blogger and frequent contributor to The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Front Page Mag, stated this: one of Jamal Khashoggi’s best friends was Osama bin Laden. He may not have been the “moderate” that the mainstream media is telling us.
The media calls Khashoggi a journalist, but his writings from 80s Afghanistan read as Jihadist propaganda with titles like, “Arab Mujahadeen in Afghanistan II: Exemplifies the Unity of Islamic Ummah”.
And when Osama bin Laden set up Al Qaeda, he called Khashoggi with the details.
After Afghanistan, Jamal Khashoggi went to work as a media adviser for former Saudi intel boss, Prince Turki bin Faisal, alleged to have links to Al Qaeda. Those allegations came from, among others, Zacarias Moussaoui, the alleged twentieth hijacker…
…Jamal Khashoggi was not a moderate. Some describe him as the leader of the Saudi Muslim Brotherhood. The Islamist network admires Hitler and seeks to impose Islamic law around the world. Nor was he a supporter of freedom of the press. In one of his Al Jazeera appearances, he complained that the Saudi government was allowing some journalists to report positively on Israel.
His final project, DAWN or Democracy for the Arab World Now was meant to aid Islamists. According to Azzam Al-Tamimi, an old Muslim Brotherhood ally aiding Jamal, “The Muslim Brothers and Islamists were the biggest victims of the foiled Arab spring.” Al-Tamimi has endorsed suicide bombings.
But unlike Osama bin Laden, Khashoggi did not use the Muslim Brotherhood as a gateway drug to the pure and uncut violence of Al Qaeda or ISIS. He was still betting on a political takeover.
As he recently put it, “Democracy and political Islam go together.”
Khashoggi went on making the case for the Islamic state of the Muslim Brotherhood. He went on making that case even as the Saudis decided that the Brotherhood had become too dangerous.
Why did the Washington Post allow a Muslim Brotherhood propagandist to write for them? Why is the press screaming for the United States to punish Saudi Arabia when the actual situation is still a question mark and we don’t have the actual BODY, or even parts of it? Some say his body was dissolved in acid after it was removed. There are nearly always traces somewhere. It’s all just hysterical speculation at this point.
