#Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman,suspected to have ordered murder of journalist #JamalKashoggi, launched unprecedented crackdown vs women’s rights activists in May. Those activists have been tortured & one has tried suicide 3 times google.com/amp/s/www.wash… h/t @SherifaZuhur
Some of the activists (none of whom have been formally charged or given access to lawyers) have been subjected to psychological or physical abuse while in custody, including electric shocks, sexual harassment, sleep deprivation and beatings. #Saudi
“In one reported instance, one of the activists was made to hang from the ceiling, and according to another testimony, one of the detained women was reportedly subjected to sexual harassment, by interrogators wearing face masks.” amnesty.org/en/latest/news… #Saudi

#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
.@raif_badawi is still in prison in #SaudiArabia. His wife @miss9afi and his children live in Canada and are Canadian citizens. The family has not seen Raif for more than 6 years. @miss9afi campaigns tirelessly for his release. #FreeRaif #RoyalPardon4Raif ciluna27.wordpress.com/2016/03/10/rai…

Glad #Saudi troll farms & their connection to Saudi regime have been studied. I’ve experienced plenty attacks for my writing on women’s issues in #Saudi & my opposition to #Yemen war: 1 of most coordinated came after #Jamalkhashoggi shared 1 of my articles nytimes.com/2018/10/20/us/…
In February, #JamalKhashoggi kindly shared the Arabic version of an oped I wrote for Washington Post about #MosqueMeToo which I started for Muslim women to talk about sexual harassment and assault in Sacred spaces, including Hajj in Makkah, #Saudi Arabia
Immediately after Jamal shared my column, i was inundated with one of the worst and most coordinated attacks by #Saudi regime trolls I have ever experienced. For days. It was a window into how much shit he and other Saudis who are critical got and continue to get.

1-It’s very obvious that issue is not the disappearance of #JamalKhasoggi while Saudi is very concerned about the whereabouts and safety of Jamal. The story is much bigger than that The media hysteria and coordinated efforts by the leftist mainstream media, #Qatar and the leaks.
2- the mainstream Stream media is publishing stories based on Unverified leaks. I wonder why no one in the media contact Mr. #JamalKhoshoggi family or his ex wife or current wife. Why the Focus is only to the so called fiancé.
3- the amount of mess information coming out of #Turkey is very suspicious. 4 groups are working hard to destroy Saudi reputation, social and economic reforms. #qatar #MuslimBrotherhood #Turkey finally the international left.

Just spoke to Senators @BobCorker and @BenCardinforMD about our shared concerns regarding the whereabouts and treatment of Mr. #JamalKashoggi.
@BobCorker @BenCardinforMD We agree if there was any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the Saudi government it would be devastating to the US-Saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be paid — economically and otherwise.
@BobCorker @BenCardinforMD Our country’s values should be and must be a cornerstone of our foreign policy with foes and allies alike.
