It answers itself, really.
Why would the Washington Post hire a pro-jihad, pro-Sharia, pro-Hamas advocate for political Islam?
The answer is clear: the Post hired Jamal Khashoggi because his views coincided with those of the paper’s editorial board. The American Left today holds positions on Israel, Hamas, and political Islam that are essentially indistinguishable from those of the Muslim Brotherhood.
As Bill says: “I’m amazed that WaPo didn’t make him Editor in Chief, given how many of their boxes he ticked.” Explains why shitlibs are so upset about his getting offed, too.
