Media martyr Jamal Khashoggi is being described as a political dissident.
Sure. So were Hitler, Khomeini and Osama bin Laden.
By no coincidence, Jamal Khashoggi was an old friend of Osama bin Laden.
In early 1990 Bin Laden returned to Saudi Arabia and gave a lecture in which he predicted that Saddam Hussein would invade Kuwait.
Jamal Khashoggi, who had travelled extensively with Bin Laden in Afghanistan, attended the talk and afterwards asked his old friend how he could be so certain of the future.
“He recited a verse from the Koran,” recalls Jamal.
“The verse means the one who practises jihad for God, for Allah, God will show them the right path. I wasn’t comfortable about it. He had given himself the position of ‘I am seeing things because God is directing me towards it’. That was the first time I felt that Osama began to have an inflated ego.”
Jamal lost touch with Bin Laden in the mid-1990s and Khaled in the early 1990s as both completely rejected his ideology.
Although it has been many years since either of them saw Bin Laden, both admitted feeling sad at the death of their old friend in a raid by US forces in Pakistan earlier this month.
The media spins this as Jamal being a moderate. Only insofar as tactics go.
He was a Muslim Brotherhood member and continued backing the Jihadist network.
