Once again, we see that left-wingers are much more corrupt and brutal than right-wingers – as if we didn’t know this thing as an absolute fact for all eternity after a little leftist project called “communism.”
Prince Mohammed is a “reformer” who has been trying to turn Saudi Arabia – formerly the most conservative country in the world – into an anal feminist paradise. He’s also a brutal madman who commits terrible murders internationally with “chop shop” hit squads.
I’m sure that former Saudi governments were corrupt, but they didn’t do this. No one does this.
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been accused of sending a hit-squad to Canada in order to kill a former Saudi intelligence official.
The failed plan to kill Saad al-Jabri was soon after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey, court documents filed in the US allege.
Mr Jabri, a veteran of the government of Saudi Arabia, fled into exile three years ago.
He has been under private security protection in Toronto since.
The alleged plot failed after Canadian border agents became suspicious of the hit-squad as they attempted to enter the country at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, court documents say.

Mr Jabri, 61, was for years the key go-between for Britain’s MI6 and other Western spy agencies in Saudi Arabia.
What does the complaint say?
The 106-page unproven complaint, which was filed in Washington DC, accuses the crown prince of attempting to murder Mr Jabri in order to silence him.
Mr Jabri says this is down to him possessing “damning information”. The document says this includes alleged corruption and overseeing a team of personal mercenaries labelled the Tiger Squad.
Members of the Tiger Squad were involved in the murder of dissident journalist Khashoggi, who was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018, it says.
“Few places hold more sensitive, humiliating and damning information about defendant bin Salman than the mind and memory of Dr Saad – except perhaps the recordings Dr Saad made in anticipation of his killing,” the document says.
“That is why defendant bin Salman wants him dead, and why defendant bin Salman has worked to achieve that objective over the last three years.”
After fleeing Saudi Arabia ahead of a purge by the all-powerful crown prince in 2017, Mr Jabri fled to Canada via Turkey.
He alleges Mohammed bin Salman made repeated efforts to return him to Saudi Arabia, even sending private messages, including one that read: “We shall certainly reach you”.
Then, less than two weeks after the murder of Khashoggi, Mr Jabri says the Tiger Squad travelled to Canada with the intention of killing him.
The court filing says the group – which included a man from the same department as the man accused of dismembering Khashoggi – were carrying two bags of forensic tools.
However, Canadian border agents “quickly became suspicious” of the group and refused them entry after interviewing them, it says.
“Bin Salman in fact dispatched a hit squad to North America to kill Dr Saad,” the claim asserts.
Mr Jabri is accusing the crown prince of attempted extrajudicial killing in violation of the US Torture Victim Protection Act and in breach of international law.
The Saudi government did not respond to a request for comment.
The Saudi Prince also chopped up a journalist in an embassy in Turkey, in a weird torture-assassination event (strange).
Further, he hacked Jeff Bezos’ phone and published his nudes (weird).
These were really unnecessary things to do. I mean, get this guy a risk-reward graph.
He’s completely collapsed his entire regime by going after the lowest value possible targets in absurd, borderline cartoonish ways. It’s actually inexplicable.
Probably, this speaks to the mindset of these people on the larger scale. We gave these desert apes huge amounts of wealth, none of which they had to work for, so they are like child-kings, thinking they are invincible. If you think you’re invincible, then you think that if anyone writes an op-ed against you, it is warranted to have them assassinated in a foreign country in a dumb, obvious way, because invincible people do not have risks. That is the definition of “invincible” – you are not subject to potential harm.
In this alleged Canadian assassination plot – which, let’s be real, is very easily believable – he was trying to use the Tiger Squad to assassinate someone who had information on the Tiger Squad. He didn’t have damning information on something that was actually serious. He had information on the prince using a team of assassins to kill completely unserious people in foreign countries.
This is obviously insane, and the only country which has ever really done this is Israel, and they’ve ended up paying a price for it in terms of international relations. Further, they would often kidnap targets, not just fly in a team of assassins on commercial flights and send them to murder people. Further, they never did it in first world countries.
I hope the Saudi regime collapses from this dumb nonsense. It is a nonsensical, dumb regime, and it deserves to collapse for dumb reasons. Donald Trump was an idiot for letting his Jewish son-in-law connect him to this stupid regime.
