The Kidnapping of Jamal Khashuggi in Turkey

I want to say this publicly: there are several Saudi men and women I know who have been seeking political asylum in Europe and North America. I appeal to all of them to stay safe and be cautious because Western governments--all of them--would sell them for a barrel of oil.

PS And I have no doubt that Israeli intelligence assisted the Saudi regime in the arrangement of the kidnapping. Ironically, Khashoggi (contrary to his reputation in Western mainstream media) was only mildly critical of the regime and he devoted his entire "journalistic" career to the service of this prince or that prince--depending on the demand.
