Jamal Khashoggi Was My Fiance. His Killers Are Roaming Free.

By Hatice Cengiz, The New York Times

20 June 19


Washington hasn’t done enough to bring the murdered Saudi columnist’s killers to justice.

n May, I was invited to travel to Washington to attend some hearings at Congress. I had imagined the city in the words of my fiancé, Jamal Khashoggi. My visit left me with the troubling feeling that his memory was fading in the city he evoked so lovingly.

When I met Jamal in Istanbul, he had been living and working in Washington for more than a year, having left his home in Saudi Arabia amid a crackdown on intellectuals and activists.

As we got engaged and planned for our new life together in Washington, Jamal would speak with great warmth about the city, its museums and marketplaces. “Trust me, you will love it here,” he would say. He would talk about his friends in the United States and speak about how he wanted me to meet them after our marriage.

Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Justice For Jamal ... Do not fear Hatice, Jamal is not and will never be forgotten. He, and his words, will always remain with us and remind the World of why it is so important to strive for and defend our Freedoms, and especially our First Amendment rights here in Jamal's adopted home country. See my ongoing tribute to him on my site. Saudi Arabia needs the US, and I know has capable men and women who could lead the country towards a productive and humane society -- they need to change leadership and hold Jamal's killers accountable... Do Not torture those who dare voice alternative opinions -- Do Not continue your bloodshed -- Do Not execute Salman al-Awda, Awad al-Qarni and Ali al-Omari -- and any other citizens of this Earth -- Silence, secrecy, and barbarity are banes of freedom and democracy, and the people of Saudi Arabia, like everyone, deserve the productive and prosperous life such wealth helps to facilitate, not the brutal power it has enabled.
