Chrystia Freeland rescues young Saudi woman from luxury Bangkok airport hotel — but silent about a Canadian on China's death row

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

About ten days ago, a young woman Rahaf Al-Qunun wrote this tweet from a luxury airport hotel in Bangkok, Thailand:

"I am the girl who escaped from Kuwait to Thailand, my life is at stake and I am now in real danger if I am forcibly returned to Saudi Arabia.”

I like the fact that she wants to be free. That she’s a woman. That she rejects Islam. What a pleasant change from the Muslim extremists who flood into the west, seeking to colonize and convert and bring sharia law — this woman looked like the opposite, didn’t she? The fact that she’s a pretty teenager who speaks English helps, too.

At least that’s what Chrystia Freeland, our foreign minister, must have thought. She’s had a terrible month.

China has seized thirteen Canadians as payback for our lawful arrest of a Chinese tycoon named Meng Wanzhou. They’re still holding several of them, including a former diplomat.

So Freeland saw an opportunity for a quick media win. This young woman, Rahaf Al-Qunun, originally wanted to go to Australia. Australia was considering her application for asylum, looking into the facts of the case.

But Freeland moved faster. She didn’t need an immigration hearing — She'd seen tweets!

So Freeland brought Al-Qunun to Canada on the weekend — and made sure she was there to mug for the cameras at the airport. You have to see her weird, domineering, handsy, smothering showboating with this telegenic young woman.

This situation wasn't really a crisis. But it was a great opportunity for Chrystia Freeland.

Certainly better than dealing with this news:

After a one-day trial, a Canadian has been sentenced to death in China, for drug smuggling. He wasn’t originally sentenced to death there. But they kicked it up a notch after Canada arrested Meng in December.

At least as I go to air, Chrystia Freeland hasn’t put out a public statement on this Canadian sentenced to death in China.

And she's offered no help for Asia Bibi, a Christian who has been sentenced to death in Pakistan, for blasphemy, because she would not submit to Islam.

You see, Trudeau ended the Stephen Harper policy of letting Christian refugees into Canada.

In the 2015 campaign, Trudeau called it “disgusting” that Harper would meet with these Christian refugees, and take photos with them.

Yeah, that was then.

The Al-Qunun cringe-fest is now.

As we showed you a couple of years ago, just before Syrians get on the plane to Canada, Trudeau pressures them to sign a photo release — a waiver, letting him use their pictures for his campaigning. These are Syrians; they don’t know their rights; and they don’t know what happens if they say no — will Trudeau even let them on the plane?

So of course they sign a release letting Trudeau use them in photo ops.

So much for being "disgusting"...

Now that she's here, why can’t we hear even one word from Rahaf Al-Qunun herself? She has been quite loquacious on Twitter. We know her name, her father’s name, her details, everything.

Everything except what Chrystia Freeland said and did, and what promises were exchanged.

Including, I might add, what photo releases she signed to agree to be in a political campaign.

That, I think, is what Catherine McKenna’s househusband knows that the rest of us don’t...

NEXT: Our good friend John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, joins me to talk about their latest legal battle:

The Justice Centre has filed a petition with the Supreme Court of British Columbia on behalf of a local church, after the City of New Westminster cancelled the church’s booking to host a conference at the City-owned Anvil Centre.

Wait until you find out why...

Even REFUGEES are no longer safe in Canada
Rahaf now has security detail, paid for by you and me due to …big surprise, death threats. For how long, the rest of her life in Canada times how many others the liberals bring in as pets and parade around putting them in danger? Bunch of idiots!
I think we all know who is threatening Rahaf. The msm are not saying in case they can find a way to blame it on the ‘right’. The penalty for apostasy in Islam is death. Freeland has waved Rahaf in front of the eyes of the bull called political radical Islam, and they are pissed, and insulted. I do not know what the hell this government is thinking. Anyway you look at it , none of this move on the part of the liberals (probably incubated in Freeland’s pea brain) makes any sense.

These people are nuts!

If refugees aren’t even safe in Canada due to political Islam , maybe Canada has a political Islam problem.

Mark Chadwick—-I’m getting suspicious too. A bunch of commenters on another site think the girl is pregnant, that’s why mommy is mad.

Good for the young girl but I smell something not right . This is all for Liberal show .

Ironic that the liberals saved this woman from Islam extremists yet have no qualms about importing immigrants with the same ideology as her persecuters

CANADA THE PEACEMAKER is in quite a position:
China and India hate us on one side.
Saudi Arabia on the other.
Below us the US would like hammer Trudeau and Freeland.
Russia has banned Freeland from entry.
Mexico turned on us to sign a deal with the US.

Comment to Rahaf by apostate, One Godless Woman who has been in Canada for 15 years. She warns Rahaf that she is being used by the Trudeau government.

Liza Rosie—-Yes I have heard Trudeau say that he would like to cancel Harper’s deal. I
don’t think he is serious. An analogy would be Notley announcing that she will be closing half of the Oil-Sands.
Neither move wouldn’t be too popular for the unemployed people who are voting this year. Suicide for Trudeau ____________________________

Don Morris said, “Freeland and the pretty teenager were on every msm broadcast in Canada, she just got a million bucks worth of free virtue signalling publicity,and you can bet your last dollar this will be part of the ongoing campaign.”
Don, it may be free advertising for the Liberals, but the way Freeland hammed it up at the airport, I can’t see the Saudi’s being anything but extremely angry, much angrier than they were before this. Remember this now has undertones with their Religion of Peace and they don’t like anyone screwing with that.

With regards to Freeland’s new optics puppet, I’m sure life sucks as a woman in a hard core Islamic country, but it is going to rub the wrong way when we have so many Canadians on the streets, in oppressive situations, and unable to care for themselves because of drugs, illness, or stolen livelihoods. All Freeland and Trudeau’s grand standing rings hollow to any Canadian with eyes in their head and brains that haven’t fallen out. The suffering in Canada are not impressed with your moral master baition Cryin Chrystia red dress.

- The Liberals are using Rahaf Al-Qunun as a trophy. They could care less about her. She’s an election prop. Canadians being held in China are symbolic of Liberal failure & weakness, so they will be ignored.

- Leftists are shameless bigots. They hate Christians & Jews. They want Israel exterminated & are thrilled to let Christians get slaughtered in the middle east while they import Islam into the West.

In that article Robert, it states that this Canadian…" had faced a number of charges in Canada related to drug possession and drug trafficking, according to Canadian court records."
Also that he is being sentenced for smuggling 489 pounds of meth!
BUT his lawyer says there isn’t enough evidence to charge him.
If the guy is involved in any way he’s not too smart and its hard to have much sympathy. But that’s not the point. The poor bugger was sentenced to 15 years appealed and they upped his sentence to death. Crazy, and one has to wonder about the timing with the arrest in Canada of Huawei financial official.

However as the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman stated,
“The remarks by the relevant Canadian person lack the most basic awareness of the legal system,” Hua said.

Is he/she addressing the Canadian PM as ’relevant person" ?

Very clever machinations by Butts and the LPC. You fight the battles you can win and look good in so doing, you avoid no-win situations like the plague.

Freeland and the pretty teenager were on every msm broadcast in Canada, she just got a million bucks worth of free virtue signalling publicity,and you can bet your last dollar this will be part of the ongoing campaign.
In political speak,the situation with China is impossible,and Butts knows this. China will use whatever leverage they have to free Meng Wanzhou,and they have plenty of leverage.
When and IF China does execute our dope dealer, Trudeau will have no trouble shedding some crocodile tears, thus assuring women in Canada that he is still the sensitive feminist they voted for.
Trudeau is “town halling” all across Canada, where in hell in the CPC leader?

Ron, Maybe the Saudis would cancel, but Justin is making noises (possibly just for show) as well. I don’t think Justin or his handlers for that matter are terribly self aware.
-In which case it would tick off a few more Ontario workers for sure.
…could hurt Trudeau in 2019

The liberals under Trudeau seem to prefer the Iranian dictatorship to the Saudi dictatorship I think. I can’t make sense of what Justin does. Bringing in this teen apostate is going to annoy his fundamentalists/Islamist’s (not sure if there is a difference).

Liza Rosie….This Saudi girl incident may affect the election if the Saudi’s cancel their Armored Vehicle Contract, a huge assembly line will go down in S. Ontario. That is the part of the Country the Libs want to keep, with thousands more unemployed, along with Oshawa, they might lose.

Christian woman and her family in Pakistan living under the threat of death; Canada has no interest. Christian Canadian on death row in China; Canada has no interest. Hard working White and mostly Christian South Africans under daily threat of slaughter; Canada has no interest. 50,000 Muslims taken in as refugees; Canada has no problem. 40,000 illegal aliens cross into Canada claiming refugee status from the US; Canada has no problem.

There is something wrong with our government.

Liza Rosie, I can understand Trudeau not wanting to upset his Pakistani Voters by bringing in poor Asia Bibi. I hope Trump brings her in as he already cut Pakistan off of
Foreign Aid, so there is no friendship lost anyway.

Thanks for filling in the blanks Ron. I don’t know much about this case. What she says in the article you linked sounds credible and similar to others who escape the oppression a girl lives under in Saudi Arabia. Fathers and brothers will kill you or at least beat you within an inch of your life if they get their hands on you. If she has renounced Islam she may not even be safe in Canada, especially now that Chrystia has made a spectacle of her. Freeland and Canada get no credit until they consider Christians in crisis from around the world, both in South Africa and the middle east.

The Liberal government never does anything from a pure heart. They always have a self serving motive.

What about Asia Bibi , why is she chopped liver and this teen fully embraced I wonder?

The UN is a phoney contract, especially given the seats Saudi Arabia actually has at the UN and I for one hate the dramatics of a national break up.
If AGTOW or QGTOW should happen, get on with it and stop making a scene or the rest of the world won’t trust either province crying wolf all the time.
Thank God I live in the only province that still has a tripple A credit rating.

Liza Rosie….I was up late last week and this story was coming in our MSM , the US, and the UK.
They all reported that she renounced Islam and her Mother wasn’t happy and sent the Father and MEAN Brother after her all the way to the Bangkok Airport. There was a possibility they would have done her in.

When Canada became interested, I said not a chance for 2 reasons, Upsetting the Saudi’s and more important, Trudeau’s favorites don’t like apostates, therefore he may lose thousands of votes. They did it anyway.

Liza, recently the MSM changed the story by taking out the Apostate part, that may be the reason you didn’t like my post, but I knew that most of us didn’t mind Apostates as they can teach Canadian’s about the dangers of Islam, as no one else is teaching our women to be careful. I thought your idea about bring in Apostates was brilliant.

Just another one of Trudeau’ s feel good moments.
There are more serious refugees that he turns a blind eye to.
Not the right color or background. I don’t believe this Saudi faker
Is the real deal. Who took her photo while she was supposedly
Barricaded in her hotel room in Thailand while she is on Twitter claiming poor me ? We have been duped again
By our our traitor PM.

Arianna Fontana,
Alberta should separate. But for itself, not as a punishment to Canada… In particular to BC.
As for the UN flags, as long as it doesn’t replace the national anthem or we lower that flag to half mass at a national tragedy, just keep going.
There won’t be a civil war if everybody re-thinks what they think & choose to be committed to.
Its like renewing your vows.
