Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

#Kashoggi was a dissident using his position as a journalist to criticize official Saudi policy. But, #SaudiArabia is an absolute monarchy. Dissent is not part of the deal between the ruler and his subjects. Of the 22 members of Arab League, 14 are Republics & 8 are Monarchies =>
2-It has been much easier to govern the 8 Monarchies of the Arab world than the region's 14 Republics. Citizens of the Monarchies could only watch as the throne was passed from father to son or from one brother to another.
3-This is not to say that the unlucky14 Republics who were bequeathed or transformed themselves into republics after the departure of their colonial rulers have behaved like true parliamentarian or Presidental Republics. True election cycles have hardly ever been credible

You can't understand #JamalKhashoggi assassination without knowing the following:
1. The industrialized world's relationship with raw materials-producing nations like #KSA #SaudiArabia produces corruption on both sides…
2. The Arabic-speaking countries, for the most part, even if they don't depend on mineral exports, are dependent on similar relationships, often mediated through the wealth on neighboring raw materials-producing nations or security arrangements made to protect industrialized
nations' interests in the mineral-exporting nations or in the Zionist settler-colonialist project (Egypt. Jordan).

3. When thousands of youth in these nations revolted against these systems in 2011 & subsequent yrs, the industrialized world supported the regimes through military

1/ On 2 October 2018, journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and he never walked out alive.
2/ He traveled there to obtain a document that would verify his divorce in order to marry his Turkish fiancée. The Turkish government has reported he was tortured and killed inside.

Thanks, I am not going to discuss the part of interpretation of Islam.
I disagree with the term Wahhabism, it is irrelevant (trace the history of what so called Wahabi) and derogatory, the group of people you are referring to are Salafism who can’t be blamed for terror, see below
Salafism encourages emulating the “salaf,” or predecessors, the first followers of the Prophet Muhammad. Unlike Khawarij, Salafism are apolitical and not violent.
The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism do not belong to Islam in any way, quoting from Saudi’ Mofti
It is worth mentioning that not all people who claim to be Salafi are necessarily is, for instance Alexandria’ school of Salafism is way far from pure Salafism

The #IL13Debate between @BetsyforIL and @RodneyDavis is starting! Livestream at… and some other places I'm too lazy to look up.
My prediction: #PreexistingConditionRodney will boast about his nonbinding preexisting condition resolution that never made it out of committee. And that his wife had cancer. #IL13Debate #ACA #healthcare
Davis says he fixed the "broken tax code" without mentioning the increase in deficit spending and that the tax cuts went primarily to the rich.

Want to know what corruption and foreign influence looks like in practice? Here ya go. <thread> 1/
Earlier today, 13 days after he went missing, the good folks at @MiddleEastInst put out the below statement. To the best of my knowledge (though they should correct me if I'm wrong), this is their first public statement on the matter. 2/
Remember, this is an organization that bills itself as "providing non-partisan, expert information and analysis on the Middle East." It is also, according to them, "the oldest Washington-based institution dedicated solely to the study of the Middle East." 3/

In the absence of Saudi voices commenting on #JamalKhashoggi’s case on mainstream media outlets (MSMO), This thread is a joint effort between @ITURKI_SH and I to shed light on some sensitive info:
There are many red flags & false evidence in that story being spread. While the ..
reason is unclear, the free thinker has to take all the little stories, clues, and evidence into consideration before making the final judgement. Leaving those three elements out of MSMO stories can cause a a severe damage into a nation’s reputation and that what the MSMO are ..
currently doing. So, I’m now presenting some of the key facts that are totally disregarded in the disappearance of #Khashoggi. Turkish officials released photos of 15 Saudi individuals claiming that they were a Saudi ‘hit squad’. One of them was proven that he was in #Turkey ..

Now here is my Memo:
It seems that we have some forgotten facts about #Kashoggi’s disappearance, so I decided to remind whoever is reading this. #Kashoggi disappeared on October 2nd, what happened the next day? Shots fired near Fathullah Gulen’s home in Pennsylvania..
Gulen is known to be Erdogan’s no.1 enemy and an opposition figure to Erdogan. On Otober 3rd, President #Erdogan called the press an enemy, viciously attacked them by saying that they are the rulers, and say no democracy would work with an operating media.Heres is full text ..
Of some of what he said “I have seen that these giant countries are being governed by the media and not by their leaders. Because whenever I spoke with them they were saying, ‘Our media says this, our media writes that.’ And I told them, ‘Just forget the media, tell me what ..

A reminder on #NationalComingOutDay that only one country in the entirety of the Middle East supports, defends and celebrates freedom of choice:

As a contrast to their equal rights in #Israel, here is how #gay men are treated in #Iran.
Sodomy is punishable by death in #SaudiArabia.

A little perspective on the #Khashoggi disappearance

Killing or kidnapping journalists is awful. But not more awful than doing it to any other person

But since it is one of the media's own we have a completely disproportionate reaction…
It also involves a major new #Trump ally #SaudiArabia and there seems to be a coordinated effort to attack them now as my colleague @davereaboi points out

The immediate acceptance of accusations from Turkish state security about this incident was absurd. All the major media outlets blindly accepted this story as if #Erdogan was a reliable source

What he is
Is one of the world's largest killers & jailers of journalists

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

Turkey has concluded that Jamal #Khashoggi, a prominent journalist from Saudi Arabia, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this week by a 15-member Saudi team sent “specifically for the murder"…
"#Khashoggi visited the consulate to obtain documents related to his upcoming wedding.

The killing, if confirmed, would mark a stunning escalation of Saudi Arabia’s effort to silence dissent, rounding up clerics, business execs & women’s rights advocates"
"The initial assessment of the Turkish police is that Mr. #Khashoggi has been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate."…

Really happy to see this from @SethAbramson . I investigated a Qatar--Rosneft part of it for a year and a half and yes, it is all supported by docs in public domain.
Here is Trump--Rosenft--Qatar part from my research.

#SaudiArabia 🇸🇦

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was established on September 23, 1932 in a far different world than we see today. One that even with the benefit of hindsight few people today would be able to comprehend with true understanding.
Founded at the height of the age of empires and during the depths of The Great Depression. When Adolph Hitler was on the ascendancy in Germany and his National Socialist German Workers Party was on the verge of assuming power.
The year of 1932 is when Joseph Stalin was truly beginning the implementation of his quest for total and absolute power inside Russia which would later culminate in The Great Purge.

When @JustinTrudeau dead wrong he doubles down and resists.

1. Finance minister breach Ethics Law no resignation
2. India terrorist invite
3. Groping assault- no investigation
4. #SaudiArabia
5. #NAFTA demands.

@POTUS knows this.
Trudeau will lose Auto to protect his ego.
2/ I am right. Again. Trudeau is so easy to predict.

When @JustinTrudeau is dead wrong he doubles down because his false bravado is more important that the lives of Canadians affected by the auto sector leaving to Michigan.
3/ watch the video above ⬆️ /2 of @JustinTrudeau at a press conference TODAY

Then watch my analysis of #NAFTA negotiations after Mexico signed YESTERDAY

I’m right. I’m worried.
