‘Portable Power’ by John Paul Xavier

Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated by agents of the Saudi government on October 2, 2018. While this brutal murder appalled the world, the Trump administration has done little to nothing to punish the Saudi government. This story is a fictional account of a billionaire taking it upon himself to punish the House of Saud for killing a journalist with whom he was close friends, a fictional Jamal Khashoggi.

Please vote to help me keep awareness alive. Jamal Khashoggi deserves justice, and he won’t get it until the House of Saud is held to account for its crimes.
