The brutal murder of #JamalKhashoggi is less about a fearless journalist being silenced and more about a royal court insider who knew too much. There is a distinction. The real Jamal wrote in Arabic defending Saudi's most henious crimes.
What happened to him is absolutely brutal and tragic and shows the lengths to which Riyadh will go to eliminate threats against the regime. Jamal was a regime insider for the longest of times, making him potentially more dangerous.
"The state has decisively eliminated Nimr al-Nimr and his sectarian separatist project but there are those among us who revive his peoject with aaccusations of treason against our Shia brothers and stupid calls to boycott them."
