Justice for Jamal Khashoggi

On October 2, prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi embassy in Turkey to obtain paperwork for his marriage. Little did he know that he would never get out alive. Join our demand to the U.S. State Department: If the Saudi government was behind Jamal’s murder, the U.S. must recall its senior official to Saudi Arabia (there is no U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia) and take immediate measures to sanction the Saudi regime.


U.S. Department of State,

It is unacceptable that you have remained quiet about the murder of prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. From the war on Yemen to the imprisoning of women activists, Saudi Arabia is a persistent and vile perpetrator of human rights abuses. Now it appears that they have carried out the cold-blooded murder of a journalist who wrote for a leading U.S. paper and was a US resident.

If it is verified by investigators in Turkey that Jamal was murdered by the government of Saudi Arabia, you must take immediate action to recall our senior official to Saudi Arabia and place sanctions on the Saudi government.

No country that commits egregious human rights abuses and murders journalists should receive special status and friendship from the U.S. You must demand answers and hold Saudi Arabia accountable.

Sincerely,

    It is human decency to make sure that all accountable for this murder should be held to account. I have never been so disappointed in an American president. Please help the family of Jamal Khashoggi get justice for there father.

    The murderers must think a hundred times before killing a journalist or a private citizen. Let justice be done.

    I do not want Jamal Khashoggi’s murder to be swept under the rug and for the United States current government to just hope that people forget while they continue to do business with Saudi Arabia.

    This was as brutal as it gets, and its apparent to me KIng Salmon ordered the hit. Trump is concerned about arms deals with Saudi Arabia, and unconcerned that the Saudi KIng, who had his minions torture and mutilate an American citizen.

    It’s time we stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia and use whatever pressure the US can bring against KSA’s repressive policies against journalists, dissidents and women!!!

    I am disgusted by the brutal murder ordered by the highest authority of Saudi. And I am also disgusted by the killings of innocent civilians in Yemen yet the super powers just stand idly by.
