Abdullah Khashoggi: “I really hope that whatever happened wasn’t painful for him, or it was quick. Or he had a peaceful death. There’s a lot of ups and downs….”
Salah Khashoggi: “Jamal was never a dissident. He believed in the monarchy, that it is the thing that is keeping the country together.”
Hatice Cengiz, the fiancée of Jamal Khashoggi daily quotes: “The Saudi Arabian authorities know how such a murder was carried out… They need to explain. President Trump should help reveal the truth and ensure justice be served. He should not pave the way for a cover-up of my fiancée’s murder. Let’s not let money taint our conscience and compromise our values.”
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison: “As we say sorry, we honour the courage of survivors and advocates who spoke out to expose sexual abuse in our institutions, often at great personal cost. Your voices save lives. Your bravery has allowed us to uncover this dark chapter of our national life and understand what we must now do to protect children.”
Jamal Khashoggi daily quote: “We suffer from poverty, mismanagement and poor education. Through the creation of an independent international forum, isolated from the influence of nationalist governments spreading hate through propaganda, ordinary people in the Arab world would be able to address the structural problems their societies face.”
“I love Saudi Arabia. They are great, King Salman, I spoke with him this morning. I said, king, you have got trillions of dollars. Without us, who knows what’s going to happen. …. With us they are totally safe. But we don’t get what we should be getting,” he said.
Trump further threatened to end what he claimed to be subsidies for the Saudi military.
