The Jamal Khashoggi Hoax
From Jack in the Antipodes

Hands up, all you who had never heard of Jamal Khashoggi before the news broke of his alleged murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Nope, me neither. And yet when this until-then obscure “journalist” allegedly died it blew everything else off the front page for months.
But doubts are starting to be raised “on the fringes of the Internet” as to whether it was Khashoggi who even went into the consulate,and if he was actually killed. [Miles: my readers knew it was fake on the first day, without asking me, but I am publishing this as a nod to thoroughness. We knew because we recognized the name Khashoggi, and remembered previous skullduggery. That was enough]. I’d say that in the absence of a verified corpse I’m going to call it a hoax. Jamal Khashoggi is not who he was presented to be by the Western media and he was not killed, not dismembered, and his body was not dissolved in acid, as has been claimed.
My guess is he’s taken early retirement and is living it up by posing as a brother or cousin on one of the glittering islands in the Mediterranean. That or he’s found a job as a greeter at Walmart. Either way, he’s still around.
I’m not going to follow every lurid detail in what must now be vying for crime of the century, but I will point out a few red flags and offer a suggestion as to why it got everyone in the media hyper-ventilating. It’s not as though the death of a journalist by foul means is so rare. Miles: yes it is. The death of anyone by foul means is much rarer than we ever thought. No journalist murder I have ever researched has turned out to be real.
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists website (yes, they formed a committee for that)fifty-four journalists died world-wide in 2018 either by murder, crossfire, or dangerous assignment; most of them, not surprisingly, in places like Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Saudi Arabia, India and Mexico. The website is very flash, as you’d expect for yet another intelligence front.
In Western countries only four died in this manner, all in the US, all at the Capitol Gazette shooting, if that wasn’t also a fake. It was. It was in the US and made the news, therefore it was fake. Two other journalists, a local TV anchor and cameraman, were killed by a falling tree while covering Subtropical Storm Alberto’s extreme weather in North Carolina in May. Splat! They were expendable, as the CPJ doesn’t concern itself with journalists endangered by trees. Yeah, and I don’t consider falling trees “foul means” or murder.
The Khashoggi backstory is so non-credible that you’d think there would be hysterical laughter at any attempt to paint his whole farce as true. So, to begin, according to Wikipedia: Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi was born in Medina (one of the two holiest sites in Islam) on 13 October 1958. His grandfather, Muhammad Khashoggi, who was of Turkish origin (né Muhammed Halit Kaşıkçı), married a Saudi Arabian woman and was personal physician to King Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the founder of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Actually the al-Sauds weren’t the founders of the KSA, they were installed there by British intelligence in 1932. At that time the British ruled Egypt, had set up and controlled the monarchies inIraq and Jordan, and had a League of Nations mandate for Palestine. The French controlled Syria and Lebanon. A quick look at a map would show the strategic importance at the time of the British controlling theArabian peninsula in order to protect the sea lanes coming via the Suez Canal and Red Sea to and fromthe jewel in the crown of their empire – India – and parts further east, including Singapore and Hong Kong.
To continue: Jamal Khashoggi was the nephew of the high-profile Saudi Arabian arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, known for his part in the Iran–Contra scandal, who was estimated to have had a net worth of $US 4 billion in the early 1980s. Adnan Khashoggi had claimed that his own grandfather was of Jewish descent. Khashoggi was the first cousin of Dodi Fayed, who was dating Diana, Princess of Wales, when the two were killed in a car crash in Paris.
Okay, I give in. How many red flags can you pack into two short paragraphs and not ask yourself if this can even have any semblance of reality? This guy was connected from birth to some of the shadiest people in the world’s shadiest and most byzantine country, and he has Jewish roots to boot.So let’s see how many more hits per paragraph we can get.
