Saudi Arabia Suspected of Hacking NYT Journalist

Saudi Arabia is really not a reliable ally to ZOG.

They chopped up a WaPo journalist in an embassy, then they hacked Jeff Bezos’ phone and posted his nudes.

Do they just not understand that the media is an arm of the US intelligence establishment?

Or do they really think they’re big guys for you?

I guess at this point, it’s so obvious that the US is bitchmade, they don’t have to worry about anything. Nothing happened when they chopped up a guy and hacked Bezos’s phone. Jen Psaki said you can’t break an alliance based on human rights (LOL).


New York Times reporter Ben Hubbard had his phone hacked on numerous occasions, and cybersecurity researchers say Saudi Arabia was to blame. The hackers reportedly used the notorious Israeli-made ‘Pegasus’ spyware.

Hubbard, a reporter covering the Middle East, wrote on Sunday that a hacking attempt was first made on his phone in 2018, when he received a “suspicious” Arabic language text message inviting him to a protest outside the Saudi embassy in Washington, DC. A similar message followed, and digital rights group CitizenLab told Hubbard both messages originated from servers that had previously been used to target Saudi activists.

Two more attempts followed in 2020 and 2021, but they were so-called ‘zero-click’ exploits, meaning Hubbard would not have had to click on any links or messages to allow the hackers into his phone. These attempts were successful, and once inside Hubbard’s smartphone, the hackers were able to view all its contents, surreptitiously activate his microphone and camera, and delete traces of their previous hacks.

“Picture a thief breaking back into a jewelry store he had robbed to erase fingerprints,” Hubbard wrote.

CitizenLab’s researchers told Hubbard the hackers likely used ‘Pegasus’ malware all four times. Pegasus is a sophisticated hacking tool developed by an Israeli firm, NSO Group, and sold to state-level clients around the world. Human rights activists detected its clients in Saudi Arabia, Hungary, India, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and many other countries. Rival politicians, foreign governments, journalists, activists, and legal and business figures were reported among the targets. Dubai’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum used the malware to hack his ex-wife’s phone, the Moroccan government reportedly used it to spy on French President Emmanuel Macron, and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s administration is accused of deploying the malware against the Hungarian media.

One thing positive I will say about the Arabs is that if the US drops the ball, they’re going to be on the phone to China within 4 seconds.

I’m not a geopolitical or economic analyst, so I don’t want to just talk out of my ass. I’m a general analyst, basically only of very obvious things.

But it seems to me that if Taiwan was annexed by China, it would be Saudi and the rest of the Gulf switching sides that would be the major event that would trigger the collapse of the US economy.

I’m not any kind of expert on the way the “global reserve currency” thing works, but it seems to me that if the Arabs stopped trading oil in USD, that would collapse the currency.

On the other hand, Arabs would be all in on the UFO hoax, if that card gets played.

They’d see those creatures and be like “damn, boy – I wanna shit on that!”
