Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that a friend of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi had filed a lawsuit against an Israeli software company, alleging that its spyware led to the Saudi journalist’s death in October.

From The New York Times: 

A Saudi dissident close to the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi has filed a lawsuit charging that an Israeli software company helped the royal court take over his smartphone and spy on his communications with Mr. Khashoggi.

The lawsuit puts new pressure on the company, the NSO Group, and on the government of Israel, which licenses the company’s sales to foreign governments of its spyware, known as Pegasus. More broadly, the suit also calls new attention to Israel’s increasingly open alliance with Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf monarchies.

WIBC host Tony Katz noted Friday that the implication in the New York Times biased reporting is clear:

“Since when have you ever seen people be so deft in their hatred of Israel? Israel had nothing to do with the death of Jamal Khashoggi! You don’t think that wouldn’t have come out from [The Young Turks]?”
