How does Jamal Khashoggi hate Jews? Let me count the ways.

Not all of Jamal Khashoggi's #antisemitism has been deleted.
Jewish child: "My father told me your Arabs are murders and terrorists."
Palestinian child: "My father told me nothing. He was murdered by your father."
Jamal Khashoggi claims that for 2000 years, Jews forgot all about Jerusalem.

Biggest misconceptions about #JamalKhashoggi:
1. "Journalist"
-He was never a journalist.
2. "Democracy advocate"
-Lifelong hardened Islamist who supported Al Qaeda & wished Israel would "die by force" via Hamas.
3."Brutally murdered" via "bonesaw"
-More likely botched rendition
Clarification: Khashoggi was a "journalist" years ago but for state-run entities that did not allow him to write freely. During this time, he simultaneously worked as an intelligence operative for KSA, before he fell out of favor with the monarchy.

Mattis was a deeply flawed defense secretary: Recent fawning evaluations are hard to square with his record

Two very recent examples; Backing up the false claim there was no "smoking gun" on Khashoggi's murder, and support for the border deployment stunt…
You may remember me being pretty angry and insulted when Mattis chose to stand with Saudi Arabia over the murder of #JamalKhashoggi
At least Mattis provided statements in these two cases; throughout his tenure as secretary, the Defense Department became considerably less transparent than it had been under his predecessors.

“This is the worst relationship I’ve seen”…

Time did the right thing today by awarding #TimePersonOfTheYear to journalists. It inspired me to look back at how @UN_SPExperts have emphasized the epidemic of attacks on journalists/ism just this year
following are just some of the attacks on journalists we highlighted. a core fact is that most attacks, and most abuses of human rights, are not held accountable.
the @Time 'award' takes place against the backdrop of @realDonaldTrump's attacks on truth

1. @washingtonpost If you want to honor #JamalKhashoggi, demand a proper murder investigation be carried out by the @FBIWFO. He was a DC area US national. It's @FBI jurisdiction not @CIA that is not law enforcement. Find his killer. And don't presume Turkey was not involved.
2. A Turkish government official (Istanbul marriage office) sent him to the KSA consulate. He needed more paperwork. The list is not hard to find. It's what you'd expect. Why didn'T he have it? Why not get in US before going to Turkey? @washingtonpost @nytimes @ap DO YOUR JOBS.
3. I have great respect for the hard working professionals at the @CIA. I have nothing but contempt for @Trump public relations trolls that have infested our govt. Did #JamalKhasoggi live in VA? Then VA prosecutors should investigate. Subpoena Kushner. Ask if he spoke with MBS.

.@guardian's correspondent،@SaeedKD deleted all his pre tweets,linking #JamalKhashoggi death to his interview with him about @IranIntl,&other tweets threatening Salman of KSA.Deleting impression he was in danger.IRI's ambassador also claimed IRI is protecting him.Any explanation?
Tasnim news agnecy run by the IRGC claims @guardian's correspondent, @SaeedKD is held in one of safe houses by police in the UK .It appears Tehran is running the show here. So far no explanation from Guardian.
Are IRGC&IRI ambassador cliams true?@ukhomeoffice @metpoliceuk
It seems @guardian's journalist was in contact with Iranian officials about his source. On 4th of NOV, Rouhani's advisor claimed that The Guardian will reveal its source in a week time. Which @SaeedKD's tweets confirm the possibility of Saaed's ties to the Iranian regime on this.

Ever wondered why #JamalKhashoggi’s case became so unnecessarily prominent in the media while the disappearance / possible murder of Head of #Interpol is barely visible? Strange, isn’t it ?
Here’s the answer in an excellent deep dive research by @PoliticalShort and @BPattySSG on @SecStudiesGrp tracks how it was done.
(For a month, Americans were being manipulated with details coming from “unnamed #Turkish sources.”)…
“The #Turkish government successfully used an information operation to elevate the case of #JamalKhashoggi’s disappearance into a major international incident with strategic implications.”

#Iran's @HassanRouhani being a hypocrite, saying he's "surprised" about the "organized crime" behind #JamalKhashoggi's murder.

Let's take a look at #Iran's own history of "organized crime."
"In terms of politically motivated killing of dissidents, intellectuals, and opposition members, 1980-1998 represents the darkest & bloodiest period in the last 150 years of Iran's history. Thousands of political prisoners were executed in that decade."…
Three priests were brutally killed and mutilated by #Iran's notorious Ministry of Intelligence & Security (MOIS).…

#SaudiArabia has committed numerous human rights violations. The murder of #JamalKhashoggi is by no means the only reason why the West should consider their relationship and in particular should #StopArmingSaudi #JusticeForJamal
On 17 June 2012 @raif_badawi was arrested on the charge of “insulting Islam through electronic channels”. He had a liberal discussion forum in Saudi Arabia. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes & a fine. On 9 January 2015 he received the first 50 lashes. #FreeRaif

Senior @hrw official @sarahleah1 is proud to appear at a MEMO event in honor of #JamalKhashoggi. MEMO is an Islamist website; its director is a well-known extremist, and the site often features antisemitic &pro-terror material.
I've written about Khashoggi's connections to MEMO here -- turns out that some of MEMO's reports on him &his own writings there expose him as a virulent Israel-hater &ardent Hamas supporter…
You can also read about the kind of events MEMO likes to put on here:…

1) President Trump does politics.
I have to get to the truth.

Orange juice evening thread, #JamalKhashoggi
October 23, 2018.
2) This Khashoggi thing has become important for another reason.

I am here to get to the truth - I don't want a Deep State secretly running our lives.

That means: Not here to defend Trump - defend the government - defend the Jewish people or Israel - sell books.

3) I am also not here to explain Trump - explain the government - explain the Jewish people or Israel - explain my motives.

If you don't want to read my stuff, that's fine.

I could not agree with President @realDonaldTrump more.

The Saudi actions in Turkey regarding #JamalKhashoggi were terrible, ill-conceived, and the worst cover-up in the history of cover-ups.
@realDonaldTrump President Trump is also right to work with Congress in a bipartisan fashion to find a tough and appropriate response to this barbaric act.

The world is watching.
@realDonaldTrump We must send a clear message that we will stand for our values. And those who follow the path set by Saudi Arabia will pay a heavy price.

It is also important is to send a signal to our enemies that America is strong once again.
