While Jewish Lefties Advocate for Khashoggi, He Urged Saudi King to Fight Israel

The outcry over Jamal Khashoggi, an old friend of Osama bin Laden and a member of the Hitler-loving Muslim Brotherhood, has reached certain Jewish organizations and pundits. 

It should stop.

One of Khashoggi’s differences with the new Saudi king had to do with the Jewish State. 

While the Saudis were engaged in a certain amount of political outreach to Israel, Jamal Khashoggi wanted to see the Saudis ally with the Muslim Brotherhood. 

And move against Israel.

“Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman should get rid of his complex against the Muslim Brotherhood and stop treating them as the enemy or a threat to Saudi Arabia,” he said.

“This is a big mistake.”

Khashoggi, who spoke to Al Jazeera from Washington, DC, expressed hope that Saudi Arabia would go back to assume its leadership of the Arab world and shift its focus to the causes that are very important to the Arabs, mainly to support the Palestinians in their struggle against Israel.

He deplored the authorities’ decision to allow some in the Saudi news media to express support for Israel against the Palestinians, while journalists and intellectuals known to support the Palestinian cause were put in jail or felt afraid to speak out.

So much for the myth of Khashoggi as a supporter of the free press.
