Biden administration signals of bowing to Iran’s foul demands

Terror-patron Iran seems to have tremendous influence on President Joe Biden and his top policymakers, including Vice President Kamala Harris. According to Newsmax:

Joe Biden’s nominee for national intelligence director has pledged to release a report on who was responsible for the murder of Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi, a decision that could embarrass the kingdom’s crown prince and strain its relationship with its key ally.

Avril Haines, who would be the nation’s first woman to oversee U.S. intelligence agencies, made the promise at her confirmation hearing on Tuesday. Congress required the national intelligence director to release an unclassified report to legislators on the killing, but the Trump administration didn’t follow through.

Who was Jamal Khashoggi?

According to documented facts, Jamal Khashoggi was a terrorist under the disguise of a so-called journalist. In other words, he was a sleeper-cell jihadist. He was a member of Muslim Brotherhood and a diehard supporter of Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Khashoggi also took part in terrorist activities of Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood, while according to intelligence reports, he was under monthly payroll of the Iran’s mullah regime.

Saudi Crown Prince Salman is known for his modernization and reform plans in his country and considered as one of the key figures in the Saudi royal family, who has been dedicatedly working for advancement of the country. He also is against century-old orthodoxy, and above all – he is well respected as a crusader against corruption.

It is well anticipated that Khashoggi case is pressed by Iran as well as the enemies of Crown Prince Salman – those wealthy corrupt Saudis. The only reason behind over-enthusiasm of several members of the US Congress about Khashoggi case is – they have been heavily bribed by the foes of Saudi Arabia. Moreover, any attempt by the US to humiliate the Saudi Crown Prince well falsified fact files related to Khashoggi case would have tremendous negative impact on the Saudi-US relations.

Khashoggi, a dangerous Islamist

Jamal Khashoggi was a dangerous Islamist, who had served the interest of Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and Iran throughout his life.

In March 2014, Saudi Arabia blacklisted the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, along with Jabhat al-Nusra [currently known as Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – ISIL [currently known as ISIS].

At that time, Abdel Latif al-Sheikh, head of the Saudi religious police, told media that the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, ISIS and al-Nusra Front were blacklisted in Saudi Arabia because they were ruled from outside to serve political purposes.

He said, “They are groups that fight moderate Muslims and are causing troubles around the world. This is what we consider against Islamic principles and has given a negative impression about Muslims in the West”.

Mohammad Zulfa, member of the Shura Council, described the decision as long overdue. “We were wrong when we opened the doors of our schools and universities to foreigners who allowed such ideas to reach our youth,” he added. “We, unfortunately, realized that too late,” Zulfa said.

Shura Council member Zuhair al-Harethi, described the bans as a sign of the kingdom’s resolve “to fight terrorism”.

“Saudi Arabia will not allow any attempts to disrupt the country’s stability,” he said.

Hartehi said some clerics had issued fatwas [Islamist sermons] that encourage Saudi youth to be involved in conflict areas.

“Such fatwas have ruined the reputation of Islam and have affected Saudi Arabia’s image in front of the international community,” he said.

Mursi, Khashoggi and Muslim Brotherhood

Egyptian government had declared the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group in Dec. 2013, after accusing it of carrying out a series of bomb attacks in Cairo.

The 80-year old powerful Islamist group, from which former President Mohammad Mursi hails, has been gradually pushed underground by Egyptian authorities since Mursi’s ouster. Many of its members and top supporters have found refuge in Turkey and in the Gulf state of Qatar.

But, Saudi Arabia’s decision of banning Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic terrorist organizations was confronted by Jamal Khashoggi – because, he has been a member of this notorious terrorist group for years.

Eminent scholar David Horowitz in a tweet immediately after death of Khashoggi wrote: “Don’t mourn for Khashoggi. He was a Muslim Brotherhood operative, a pro-jihad, pro-Iranian, pro-Erdoğan Jew-hater. A supporter of Iran. Basically, he died as a warrior on the wrong side of the war on terror”.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal behind Twitter

Most interestingly, as in the case of Donald Trump, Twitter went into crackdown on anti-Khashoggi contents, as because Saudi Arabia’s corrupt Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns major shares of Twitter and he opposes current Saudi government. Let me remind my readers, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was accused of massive corruption by King Salman and his government.

Washington Post’s poster-boy Khashoggi was an open supporter of violent, theocratic Islamist movements such as Muslim Brotherhood. His public commentary included open support for designated terrorist organizations, radical Islamic jihad and unabashed anti-Semitism. Sitting in the US, Khashoggi opted a tricky formula of reinventing and proclaiming himself to be an “exiled human rights” dissident – only when he lost influence in Saudi Arabia after rise of reformist Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

But, editors at the Washington Post did not bother reading Khashoggi’s fascistic posts on Twitter and other social media platforms.

Although Post editors said, Jamal Khashoggi’s columns were “shaped” [and funded] by a top official of the Qatari regime’s multi-billion-dollar Qatar Foundation, they never admitted – Khashoggi was not a crusading voice for a better world; he was a spin doctor for theocrats in Doha and Ankara [and also in Tehran].
