The Wiesenthal Centre expresses its horror and revulsion at the presumed gruesome murder of journalist Jamal Kashoggi. In a search, however, of his official Twitter account, Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, discovered the following tweets of 16 October 2015.

FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI: The Tomb of the Prophet Joseph, attacked by demonstrators yesterday in Nablus is a Jewish lie is a shrine built in the Turkish era and surrounded by Jews to the school of extremism and claimed that Joseph peace be upon him.

FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI:The Jews have no history in Palestine, so they invented the wall of the prophet, a Mamluk building. After 67 they noticed the tomb of Joseph in Nablus, and they decided that he was the prophet of Joseph.

FROM JAWAD AL-HASHEMI: Jews without history in Palestine !!! The feeling is that our teacher knows that you have come to history like my knowledge of Korean !!! Best greeting !!

FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI: Go and dig with them, Jawad al-Hashemi, perhaps you will find them a tomb or an effect to be blessed with it, they have dug long and wide and did not find anything, so you have experience.

RESPONSE FROM JAWAD AL-HASHEMI: For your knowledge, we, the Muslims, took us from the Jews to the name of Jerusalem, they called Jerusalem the name of the house of Hamei Kadesh, and we stole it and called it Beit-al-Maqdis.

FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI: A flaw ... The Muslims did not steal anything from the Jews, and I think you are a Muslim who cherishes your identity, do not provoke me more than this.

RESPONSE FROM YAZEED1404 (speaking of Jawad al-Hashemi): Professor Jamal, your guest is Jewish.

FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI: @JawadAlhashimy is not a Jew but an Iraqi "diplomat" in New York.

 

As an international human rights organization, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre is anxious that the truth of Mr. Khashoggi's fate is uncovered and accounted for.
