    Saudi crown prince visits Tunisia amid Khashoggi protests
    By The Associated PressTUNIS, Tunisia — Nov 27, 2018, 12:15 PM ET



    The Associated Press

    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is encountering something in Tunisia that he doesn't see often: public anger.

    Hours before his arrival Tuesday, more than 200 protesters denounced his visit in a second day of protests in the capital, amid international concern about the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
    Cries of "Tunisia is not for sale" rang across the main avenue of Tunis in Tuesday's gathering by activists. Some burned a Saudi Arabian flag and others demonstrated with saws.
    A banner showing a doctored image of the prince holding a bone saw hung on the headquarters of the Tunisian journalists union. Turkish officials say Khashoggi's body was dismembered in the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul last month.

    Saudi authorities have blamed the killing on lower-ranking officials who they say exceeded their authority.
    A day earlier, about 200 protesters gathered in the same spot to say the crown prince wasn't welcome in this North African nation.

    The prince was expected to remain discreet during his visit of several hours to Tunisia. He will meet with President Beji Caid Essebsi at the presidential palace in Carthage, outside Tunis. An official statement is to follow.
    A youth activist group that criticizes Saudi limits on women's rights was among those demonstrating Tuesday. "No to Repression of Freedom of Expression" read one sign.
    "We're here to say no, 1,000 times no to the visit by the criminal bin Salman," said protester Said Arous.
    Prince Mohammed is not exposed to this kind of protest back home, where he's engaged in a crackdown targeting business leaders, human rights activists and other royals.
    Traveling abroad for the first time since the killing, the crown prince is visiting Arab allies before heading to a Group of 20 summit in Argentina this week, where he may face questions about the gruesome slaying.
    On his tour's first stop, in the United Arab Emirates, the Saudi prince was embraced on the tarmac by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, a close ally. He also went to neighboring Bahrain, an island nation that functions as a vassal state to Saudi Arabia and to Egypt.
    Tunisian President Essebsi's office said Tunisia denounces the journalist's killing and wants a full investigation, but doesn't want it to be used to destabilize Saudi Arabia. Asked about the prince's visit, Tunisian government minister Selma Elloumi said he is "welcome" in Tunisia and stressed "historical and fraternal" relations between the countries.
    But many Tunisians are angry over the killing and suspicions of the prince's involvement.
    "He is coming to this country to dirty it, and acquire a false legitimacy," Tahar Yahya, of the Tunisian Order of Lawyers said Monday night. "We don't want the money of a regime whose hands are stained with blood." His group tried to seek a court order blocking the prince's visit.
    The Tunisian journalists' union sent a letter to the president calling it an "attack on the principles" of the 2011 revolution that brought democracy and freedom of expression to Tunisia.
    Saudi Arabia offered refugee to the autocratic ruler that Tunisians overthrew in 2011, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, and democracy activists have denounced Riyadh's refusal to extradite him.
    A dozen Tunisian non-governmental organizations issued a joint statement saying the visit is aimed at cleaning up Prince Mohammed's image after the Khashoggi death, and denounced "flagrant violations of human rights and repressive practices against freedom of speech" in Saudi Arabia.
    The Tunisian journalists' union also filed a legal complaint Monday against the prince for alleged crimes against humanity in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting Shiite rebels. It's unclear whether Tunisian authorities will take action on the complaint.
    Human Rights Watch has made a similar legal request in Argentina.

    الشركة المصنعة للبرنامج هي من باع البرنامج اللذي استخدمته السعوديه في للتجسس على خاشقجي.
    من هنا البرنامج نفسه لا يملك الإدراك والفهم لإنه برنامج.
    ومن هنا.
    اسرائيل تقوم ببيع أسلحة للتجسس على معارضين الحكم في السعوديه هي القصة.
    وليس تورط برنامج إسرائيلي بقضية خاشقجي.

    تقوم الحكومة السعودية بشراء أسلحة تجسس على الشعوب من أسراءيل وقد تكون هناك حكومات أخرى عربيه تقوم بشراء أسلحة للتجسس على معارضين الحكم في الدول العربية وتصفيتهم.
    يعني اسرائيل بتبيع الحكومات العربية أسلحة للتجسس على النت وبهدف أن تصفي هذه الحكومات العربية شعوبها هي القصة.
    الثمن 55 مليون دولار.. هكذا أغرى الإسرائيليون المسؤولين السعوديين بصفقة مثيرة لمراقبة المعارضين

    The G20 which stands for the group of the most notorious killers and world leaders are meeting with their Arabian Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and they are hoping to get respect and obedience in return for their oddasity.
    These world leaders seem to have forgotten about the events that led to the collapse of the Vienna order of 1815 which culminated in WWI.

    Khashoggi's killing was born of a brutal 'Game of Thrones'-style culture around the Saudi crown prince, according to a wild insider account

    The
    These guys are fake, they are playing games and are dishonest. It is clear that this is a state run operation whether MBS ordered it or not.
    We are waiting for these foolish Americans to empower Iran and not demise it.
    The American inaction about this notorious killer will only make Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood become the entities that would generate the Sunni popular support.

    There's more to this high five than meets the eye.

    I think Saudi is trying to send a message that it's willing to shift its alliance towards Russia, should the West impose any sanctions on Saudi Arabia.

    Putin saw it as an opportunity to spite the West.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the two rehearsed the high five in advance.

    Am I only one who thinks Macron's attitude towards Bin Salman is bordering on "patronizing"?
    He told him "I told you but you don't listen".
    It's like a mother scolding her young boy.

    @Isabella? What do you think, as someone who's fluent in French politics?

    The G20 of fools. Instead of taking action against Saudi Arabia as a state that is lawless, these fools made a show of humiliating the person of MBS. This is to say that these fools want us to believe that International relations are relations between individuals and not relations between states. This is also saying that the G20 of fools are OK with the Saudi Arabian criminal regime but are not OK with only one individual and that is MBS. In fact it is the Saudi Arabian State that is responsible for the war crimes of Yemen and also for the Khashoggi assassination.
