Jemima Khan, the celebrity backer of well-known WikiLeaks, has hit out at Julian Assange for being a cult leader. She let loose a stinking attack on the service founder claiming that he demands “blinkered, cultish devotion”. Worse still, she has claimed that he should go back to Sweden and face justice.
Khan claimed that Julian Assange risked becoming “an Australian L. Ron Hubbard”. According to the article, Assange has alienated some of his closest allies. In his defence, she wrote that a guy who had spent his life committed to such work has to be a little odd. In addition, Khan had seen flashes of Julian’s charm, brilliance and insightfulness.
Anyway, Jemima admitted that she had gone from admiration to demoralization on the subject of WikiLeaks. The website has been guilty of the same obfuscation and misinformation as those it sought to expose. At the same time, its supporters are expected to follow the service in “blinkered, cultish devotion”.
Jemima Khan was executive producer of a documentary about WikiLeaks. The movie is titled “We Steal Secrets” and recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the United States. Khan claimed that her movie was designed to present a balanced view of the WikiLeaks story but Julian Assange had denounced it before taking a look.
When Jemima told Julian she was part of the movie team, she tried to convince him that the film would be fair and would represent the truth, but Assange replied that if it was a fair film, it would be pro-Julian Assange. Jemima’s article praised WikiLeaks for exposing corruption, torture, war crimes and cover-ups, but at the same time she criticized the service for a “with us or against us” mentality that was killing WikiLeaks.
Although Khan found the timing of the sexual abuse allegations against the service founder suspicious, she had concluded that the allegations should be dealt with through Swedish due process, because the plaintiffs have human rights, too, and need resolution. Khan believes that Julian’s noble cause and his desire to avoid an American court can’t trump their right to be heard in a Swedish court.
Jemima admitted that she didn’t regret putting up bail money for the WikiLeaks founder, but she did it so that he would be released while awaiting trial, not so that he could avoid answering the allegations.

|The first rule of being in a secret cult, is not to tell any of its secrets. No wonder she does not get along with its leader.|
|Jemima Khan? The same Jemima Khan who joined one of the world's biggest cults is accusing someone else of demanding "blinkered, cultish devotion"? Pots and kettles, stones and glass houses. Look in the mirror, pet. Staring back at you is the face of someone who shows "blinkered, cultish devotion" to an oversized cult and its ridiculous deity.|

|What one of the "world's biggest cults" did she join?|
|@wenex: She quite rigorously and extremely converted to some hardcore branch of Islamic religion.|
Maybe not an extremist branch of Islamic faith, but still quite a bit more hardcore than your average, more moderate and sane believer of Islamic faith.
She later admitted that she dids so to "be accepted in Pakistani culture" when she married her Pakistani husband back in those days.
Yeah, Assange. Jemima is right. When being charged you should face court. Just like Jemima did when she was charged for stealing religious artifacts in Paki- oooohhh wait no she didn't stay in Pakistan when she was charged... she bolted to the other end of the world.
And apart from her extreme flirt with Islamic faith, Jemima herself is quite taken with the cult of Jemima-ism as well...
|hmm face the music and get ghosted to Gauntanamo Bay or stay holed up in a safe embassy with home comforts,personally I would choose the home comforts as have many others including a government minister wikileaks supporter in Iceland who`s government told her that as soon as she set foot in America on a state related visit she was to be arrested,no one in their right senses upsets the global war machine and expects to be treated fairly or impartially since the wikileaks exposed some of what really happened out there,with 3rd party security companies and crimes against civilians ranging from sectarian violence and murder by the very police put in force by the Americans to machine gunning reporters and women and children from an Apache helicopter and much ,much more.one must consider also that it may well have been put to Ms Khan that it would not help her films cause to side with assange and his own condemnation of the film may well have been that he was not consulted and comments made in such film may have prejudicial effects on how he and wikileaks is perceived in the USA,I personally feel that he has done the right thing in regard his wikileaks as any good reporter of the uncensored fact should do and that charges against him were and are coincidentally all stemming from post the expose on Iraq.|
|very easy to pay someone to cry foul in the hopes of discrediting him and in doing so discredit wikileaks in said process especially when it helps their cause ,not a new propaganda trick,unfortunately the end result of getting him into the USA on charges or anywhere else where Cyber or the NSA/CIA or FBI can get a noose around his neck have been thwarted to date,but it must be said with the Mandate of such organisations being that they will go into any country to do their business with troops if required does give cause to consider just how long mr assange can keep out of the cross-hairs.||
