Who is really جمال خاشقجي or Jamal Khashoqji? Was he an Islamist? It seems that he was indeed an Islamist and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood

Dr Pipes,

These are must read tweets and articles by Patrick Poole in PJ Media about who is really Jamal Khashoqji. In 1988, he appears "holding a rocket propelled-grenade with fighters in Afghanistan"! The "small jihad" may be?

I can understand if the likes of Vox and the so called HuffPost peddle this nonsense about Jamal Khashoqji the "democrat" and Islamic reformer. However,when this nonsense makes it to the NYT and the WaPo then we indeed have a problem about reporting the news not in the Middle East but here in the US

I urge the readers to click on the links provided by Mr Poole and you will see the "democrat and reformer" Jamal Khashiqji holding a rocket-propelled grenade in Afghanistan! No I'm not kidding

More? Here is an article from no other than CNN in Arabic where Jamal Khashoqji admits that he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist group, then he says ثم كبرنا واستقلينا برأينا or: Then we became older and became independent in our opinion.

It is obvious that he was not denying that he was still a member of the Muslim Brotherhood!

Here is the article

This does not mean that if indeed he was murdered by the Saudis then this is a horrible crime
