The Khashoggi affair has exposed the Bani Saud in a manner that none of their other misdemeanors had done before. Turkish President Erdogan has skillfully utilized the ghastly crime to expose their true nature.
The Saudis seem to have a strange fascination with the number 15. Take the brutal murder of Jamal in the Kingdom’s consulate on October 2.
Addressing the opening session of 32nd International Unity Conference in Tehran on November 24, President Hassan Rouhani condemned the “Zionist tumor” implanted in the Middle East and offered to defend Saudi Arabia “for free”.
While Khashoggi’s brutal murder has spotlighted the dark conduct of Saudi rulers, it has also forced Western media outlets to look a little closer at the horrors perpetrated in Yemen.
The brutal killing of Khashoggi is very much in the mould of the tyrants and kings that followed after the Khulafa al-Rashidoon. Muslims must study their history carefully.
The brutal manner in which journalist Jamal Khashoggi was chopped up alive by a Saudi hit squad has sent shockwaves throughout the world.
One would be closing eyes to reality to assume that Muhammad bin Salman gave the order to murder Khashoggi on his own. There are American fingerprints all over this sordid affair.
The October 30 call by US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis for ceasefire in the war on Yemen “within 30 days” may be the first positive sign out of the war-torn country in nearly four years.
Finally the devastation in Yemen caused by Saudi Arabia's unrelenting war seems to have caught the attention of American mainstream media.
What certainty do South African critics of Saudi Arabia have that they will not face the same tragic fate that befell Jamal Khashoggi?
The dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since he entered the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul on October 2. This has raised fears that he was murdered at the consulate.
Saudi Arabia is an artificial entity created by the colonialists to serve their interests. It continues to serve this purpose but its internal contradictions are catching up resulting in Bin Salman trying other gimmicks.
The Bani Saud are guilty of horrendous crimes in Yemen where a famine is raging and more than one million children are suffering from cholera. Saudi rulers should be tried for war crimes.
The Saudi regime seems to have gone totally berserk. While its policies under crown prince Muhammad bin Salman are completely erratic, in recent week a pattern has emerged that shows that the regime has become even more vicious and brutal.
Bani Saud show hypocrisy over women’s rights. While allowing them to drive cars, they have rounded up those women that had campaigned to have the ban lifted.
Whatever Bin Salman touches turns to dust. The latest disaster to befall the doomed kingdom is the failure of his “Vision 2030” whose lynchpin was floating 5% of Aramco shares. There were no takers and the venture has had to be shelved!
Saudi crown prince Muhammad bin Salman is thrashing about like a wounded beast that is trapped. He has arrested a large number of people and also intensified executions in the kingdom to terrorize the people into submission. He is failing and will only short-circuit his own existence.
Bani Saud are guilty of openly violating Allah’s commands pertaining to Hajj. From imposing visas to charging exorbitant prices and limiting Hajj to a matter of a few days, all these are contrary to Qur’anic teachings and the prophetic Sunnah.
The Saudi officials were rude; there was too much waste of food, especially in hotels where pilgrims from North America and Europe stayed. The Saudis have imposed different tiers of Hajj: five star to basic.
In the week since the Bedouin-dominated kingdom of Saudi Arabia went berserk over Canadian criticism of its atrocious human rights record, things have not cooled off. The Saudis ordered the Canadian ambassador to leave Riyadh in 24 hours. It also recalled its own envoy from Ottawa and ordered 15,000 Saudi students at Canadian universities to return home by September 1.
