Abdullah Alaoudh: “If we allow a murderer [Mohammad bin Salman] to get away because we think we can make some deals with him, we are just reinforcing the idea that money can silence everybody.”


“And this is the dangerous message that created Saddam Hussein and Moammar Gaddafi.  We can better protect the good relationship with Saudi Arabia in the long run through building a relationship with the Saudi people, institutions, and even the majority of the royal family.  Or we can risk losing all that by protecting one powerful individual who has been implicated in a horrible crime.”

This long quote from Abdullah Alaoudh comes to you through the Washington Post and is written by Karen Attiah.  It is published as an opinion piece.  The writer was a friend of Jamal Khashoggi.  Aloudh is a senior scholar at the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University.
