Barbarian Islamic Politics or Turkish Taqija? Journalist Khashoggi Allegedly Butchered and Dismembered alive in Turkey by Chief Forensic Doctor of Saudi Security Department

In Islam the concept of taqija = “legal”  lie is commonly used to promote a Muslim cause

Saudi Arabia is very actively spreading Wahhabi Islam to the West – financing mosques all over Europe. Nevertheless, it is intimately allied with the US.
The incriminated – but probably innocent US scapegoat, Osama bin Laden, was a Wahhabit. His brother Shafiq, who on 9/11 was negotiating purchase of weapons in the notorious Carlyle Group with i.a. Pres, Bush Sr.!!  Osama was intimately associated to the royal Saudi family, and a loyal servant of the USA and Israel.,

You have heard a lot about the presumed murder case of the  Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Kashoggi – and at least I have been unable to understand why this case has attracted so much media attention.

A total of 65 journalists (including professional journalists, citizen-journalists and media workers) were killed worldwide in 2017 (lowest figure in 14 years)
39 were murdered, and deliberately targeted because their reporting threatened political, economic, or criminal interests.
Worldwide, a total of 326 journalists are detained in connection with the provision of news and information as of December 1, 2017


There certainly is some dirty motive behind it – e.g. to bring Trump into Trouble: Trump himself went to see the royal Saudi family – and spent an entire day to have information about one single unknown  journalist – never seen before. Then he sent his Foreign minister to Turkey and Saudi Arabia. And the Foreign ministter would not utter one word about the case. Trump tried to hush the affair up – saying it seemed to be some accidental bad guys perpetrating a crime. But Congress is upset and demands heavy punishment of Saudi Arabia if the suspicion is verified.
And then Trump woulld lose his closest ally after Israel.
It might also  be an attack on the hated Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, who has incarcerated his cousins for suspicion of conspiracy.

Trump is in doubt if this audio exists.
Actually, this ado would only be useful for Trump´s enemies, Iran, or Bin Salman´s enemies

And finally, the story might be true; That bin Salman wanted to get rid of one of his fiercest critics  – if true.
The Times 17 Oct. 2018:  The Saudi consul-general to Turkey has been fired. Attention is now turning to Major-General Ahmed al-Assiri, the deputy head of Saudi general intelligence. Sources in Washington say he may have received the go-ahead from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to interrogate — but not to kill — Mr Khashoggi.

I don´t know if this is a media stunt launched by Saudi Arabia´s enemy, Turkey. However, the horror story below is not credible: it is partly based on visual impressions that could not occur, as the cameras are said not to have recorded that day).
But several (unreliable) Western media have brought the news

The following is the story  

The Wall Street Journal 11 Oct, wrote: The Turkish government has what it describes as audio and video recordings purporting to show that Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and has shared the evidence with U.S. officials, according to people familiar with the matter.
Mr. Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week. His fiancée, a Turkish woman, accompanied him to the consulate and waited outside for him, but said he never came out. Saudi Arabia denies he was taken into custody.

“We don’t like it, we don’t like it a little bit,” Mr. Trump said.

“What happened is a terrible thing, assuming that happened,” he added.

It took seven minutes for Jamal Khashoggi to die, a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of the Saudi journalist’s last moments told Middle East Eye.

On 15 Oct, 2018, the WSJ wroteTurkish officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, have said police had gathered evidence that Mr. Khashoggi was killed and his body dismembered by a team of 15 operatives dispatched from Riyadh. But Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has stopped short of accusing the kingdom of his murder.
Turkish authorities suspect Prince Mohammed had a hand in Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance because the alleged team of operatives they say killed the journalist comprised Saudi government officials and intelligence officers who flew to Istanbul on corporate jets controlled by the crown prince.

The Guardian 16 Oct. 2018:  Turkish investigators believe Khashoggi was first interrogated in the consul general’s office on the building’s second floor, before being dragged into a second room, by a team of assassins. The Turkish team believe that his body was eventually dismembered in a third room.
Turkey has already published details of a group of 15 men – some from Saudi intelligence – who arrived in Istanbul at the time of Khashoggi’s disappearance. Nine of the men arrived on a private jet from Riyadh.

This video shows a WSJ article in which Turkish officials knocked Kashoggi down, drugged him and then he was dismembered. The officials say they had informed the US and Turkey. 

The Middle East Eye 16 Oct. 2018 brings uncanny details:
Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and onto the table of his study next door, the Turkish source said.

Horrendous screams were then heard by a witness downstairs, the source said.

“The consul himself was taken out of the room. There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him,” the source told MEE.

The screaming stopped when Khashoggi – who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate on 2 October – was injected with an as yet unknown substance. (How could they know that an injection was made They could not see it).

Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, who has been identified as the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, was one of the 15-member squad who arrived in Ankara earlier that day on a private jet.

Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said. (How could he know ? – there was no camera)

The killing took seven minutes, the source said.

As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.

A three-minute version of the audio tape has been given to Turkish newspaper Sabah, but they have yet to release it.

A Turkish source told the New York Times that Tubaigy was equipped with a bone saw.  (How could he know? There was no camera) He is listed as the president of the Saudi Fellowship of Forensic Pathology and a member of the Saudi Association for Forensic Pathology.

These are the first details to emerge of the Saudi journalist’s killing. Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October to retrieve paperwork.

To date, Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in his disappearance and say that he left the consulate soon after arriving. However, they have not presented any evidence to corroborate their claim and say that video cameras at the consulate were not recording at the time.
