Saudi Arabians Boycott Turkish Products Through Social Media

Turkey's continued pressure on Saudi Arabia regarding the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi sparked resistance from the royal population. Saudis in recent days have called for a campaign to boycott Turkish products. This invitation was carried out in protest at what they called "Ankara's position in the Jamal Khashoggi case".

Who is Jamal Khashoggi?
Reporting from www.bbc .com Indonesia is a veteran Saudi Arabian journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, taking care of the papers at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and never looked out again.

A number of US media reported that the Turkish government had sound recordings and videos which according to them proved that Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate when he was lost.

US and Turkish officials reportedly said the footage showed the Saudi security team detained Khashoggi when he took documents for the completeness of his marriage. He was later killed and his body was cut into pieces.

Saudi Arabia denies involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi.

Jamal Khashoggi pursued his career as a reporter when he had become friends with Osama bin Laden, until later becoming a prominent Saudi dissident who had to leave his country.

Before being lost at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, Khashoggi's decision to isolate him had to divide his time between the United States, Britain and Turkey.

He left Saudi Arabia in September 2017, having disagreed with the royal rulers of Saudi Arabia.

From abroad, he spread a critical view of the Saudi government through his column in the United States newspaper, the Washington Post, and his very popular Twitter account with more than 1.6 million followers.

Travel to Afghanistan
This 59-year-old man began his career as a journalist in Saudi Arabia after graduating from an American university in 1985.

While working in the al-Madina newspaper in the 1990s, he wrote extensively about Islamic militias who went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet invasion.
He interviewed several Saudi Arabian men, Osama bin Laden, whom he said he had known since he was young.
At that time bin Laden had not yet become a known figure in the West as an al-Qaida leader.

Using the hashtag #Saudis_rejecting_the_Turkish_products, these activists invited Saudis not to use Turkish products and choose local products. Activists say the campaign is aimed at punishing the Turkish president for spreading negative policies towards Saudi Arabia.

When Turkey's economy deteriorated this year, Warganet Saudi asserted they did not need to help Ankara, which was at odds with their country. A Saudi said, through this campaign, Erdogan would later hate himself. Meanwhile, other residents said that while Turkey was busy managing Saudi affairs, the country was building a future. "Turkish products must be boycotted," said one netizen who said Ankara was building a conspiracy against Saudi Arabia.

A number of Warganet even published a number of Turkish products sold in Saudi Arabia. Other netizens even call anyone who buys Turkish products the same as supporting terrorism. "Because our country has been attacked by Erdogan's provocative statements, our obligation is to boycott all Turkish products in response to all these attacks," said a netizen.


"What if 20 million Saudis boycott Turkish products and tourism?" asked a netizen. He added, if that happened, Erdogan's face and everyone who attacked Saudi Arabia would be hit hard.
