    From the link below:

    "An Israeli official on Friday called the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul “despicable” but said that cementing ties with Gulf states in the struggle against Iran was Israel’s overriding concern."

    Waging a proxy war against Iran seems to be more important than justice for a journalist. Isn't that unethical?
    If not should we think of journalist's lives as worth little more than a dog's life?

    I take that back. Less than the life of a dog. Since the USA and U.K. are still going to ship weapons to Saudi Arabia it is like letting that man who killed the dog keep his gun rights.
    The Saudi butchers who cut up Jamal Khashoggi are being protected by the Saudi Kingdom. There will be no justice unless they are extradited to Turkey as the Turks have demanded.

    I think he's referring to the Arabs. But they had their time of glory too.
