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...

What’s with the bloody UN hat?!! First, a UN flag at the border crossing, another spied flying at Penticton city hall, a thousand flying at the G20 summit in Quebec…and now this?!!! What comes first, civil war or Alberta separating?!!

What a gross display by Freeland. Watching one of his gender hires do exactly what he called “DISGUSTING”! is kind of disgusting. No one under Harper was ever so grossly obvious and grabby in their media campaigns.

What if after few months in ‘kaneduh’ this teenage moslem girl has a change of heart and she reconciles with her parents/family? Of course she won’t be moving back to soody arabia instead, will be sponsoring her family as legal immigrants to ‘Kaneduh’. Besides her immediate family members as a refugee she can also sponsor any number of her relatives (including, but not limited to cousins, uncle, aunts, nephews, niece & so forth) and will be entitled to limitless benefits & welfare payments as will be her sponsored relatives.

Yes, Freeland is weird, and something is fishy with the Saudi Arabian woman for sure. Wouldn’t trust anything that this Liberal government is involved in.
commented 2019-01-14 23:12:54 -0500
Missing from all he mugging for the camera and patting themselves on the back is the back story of why a girl fleeing family violence felt it necessary (and apparently the Canadian government agreed) to flee the country and seek refuge abroad. Did she have an enormous family or people within the family with connections to intelligence or was it a symptom of a much larger problem, which is a state religion crushing an individual who parts ways with them, in which case we would have to ask why is the liberal government so eager to hoist that same culture upon us on mass. Obviously they’re well beyond recognizing Houston has a problem and are for the most part compounding it.
commented 2019-01-14 23:04:48 -0500
I think we need to be absolutely sure we do all we can to eliminate any chances of a liberal reelection. Unity is our strength. They divide and conquer

I read somewhere that the Saudi girl had remarked on how cold it was in Canada. I think she may have liked Australia better because the climate there is more like the one she was used to.

On the Christian story, it’s a concern that other church leaders didn’t speak up in support of the one that had their venue cancelled. When Christians won’t stand up for themselves and other Christians, it’s kind of opening the door for worldwide persecution of Christians. It’s kind of lame to say, “Oh, woe is us! We’re being persecuted.”, when Christians themselves won’t support each other to stop it. It makes you wonder, “Yes, and whose fault is that?”

Have the Lib’s allowed even a dozen Christian Migrants Entry’?
commented 2019-01-14 22:40:26 -0500
The Al-Qunan cringe fest and photo-op is a classic diversion from the plight of thirteen imprisoned Canadians in China, the fact that Cryin’ Chrys and the Boy Blunder are powerless to help them, as well as the fact they have had to run to good old Uncle Donald for help. Oh look….a squirrel!
How’s that basic dictatorship working for you now Junior?
commented 2019-01-14 22:33:29 -0500
The Muslims are only here for one thing and that is to take Canada away from Canadians. The only thing that will save this Country is a real leader,
who is prepared to do a lot of deporting.

Meanwhile, back in jolly old England, the biggest upset in the history of democracy since the 1600’s is about to take place. Check tomorrow’s news, to see if Theresa May is still PM.
commented 2019-01-14 22:03:59 -0500
I’m going to make a prediction here.
Next tweet from Rahaf Mohhamed says, “Death to the yahood”.
God I hope that kid prooves me wrong and I don’t care if she’s pregnant or not. All babies welcome in my belief.
commented 2019-01-14 21:53:43 -0500
Nobody scortched Chrystia like I did in the past.
But here’s another uncalled for doozy.
Maybe Trudeau likes a woman who is matronizing and can’t dress. Reminds him of the mother whom should have raised him.
That was cold. But if you have dignity, it resonates wither you are right or wrong.
commented 2019-01-14 21:52:17 -0500
sick and tires, lol
commented 2019-01-14 21:51:47 -0500
People are getting sick and tires of Christian bashers.
The crickets on Asia Bibi is very telling. In case we needed any more proof of who this government represents and supports and who this government does NOT represent and support..

Ron Joseph a little context please. I don’t mind anyone coming here at an acceptable pace if they want to join in and respect our values. I don’t appreciate all these bogus asylum seekers. This woman should be coming in the way everyone else used to in Canada , after due process. I don’t have a problem with someone who wants to leave the Islamic faith, I applaud it. However I want immigration numbers greatly reduced and time lines respectful of our demographics.
I say I love true apostates because they want to embrace modernity, and freedom, I’m comparing them to the Islamist’s we are mostly being flooded with. The type who may not kill you outright but would watch as someone else did it. But as they say, not all Muslims.

Besides Ron, I didn’t hear anyone say that Rahaf Al Qunun identifies as anything other than Muslim, just that she has left extremist Saudi Arabia and her oppressive family behind her.
Yes that would be a great interview. Maybe he could ask her if she has left the ‘faith’ of Islam. I doubt the government would allow it. I imagine she is on a pretty short leash.
commented 2019-01-14 21:49:29 -0500
Carole Masse,
A) Rahaf could easily be slaughtered in Australia.
B) Australia didn’t rush to her rescue either.
We did them a favour because we are already way out of favour with the Saudis. Thank God.
We can insult those turds to high heaven and it’d be the work of God.

Christia Freeland is one strange lady, but then again so is Justin Trudeau a strange man. These two prima donnas are such glory seekers that you have to wonder whether they can actually stomach each other: I know that I can’t stomach either of them. I’m sure that Justin feels slighted that Christia took the spotlight on this “irregular” refugee case. One thing for sure is that msm will run with this feel good story for weeks if not for months. It’s all designed to lure low information voters to support Liberals come next election.
commented 2019-01-14 21:39:58 -0500
I hope Freeland has called Autralia to advise them; otherwise we can add another country insulted by the Trudeaus.
commented 2019-01-14 21:30:28 -0500
Gees Trudeau is a lousy actor. So fake. So forced. And I swear, all Scheer or Bernier have to do is point out that fact, and Trudeau is done. Because once you see it, there’s no turning back, and you just can’t take the man-child seriously any more!
commented 2019-01-14 21:27:57 -0500
Rahaf Al-Qunun is in all probability the sister of Trudeau’s favorite Terrorist, the $10m dollar man. These Muslims are sneaky, that’s why Trudeau loves them so much. What is she here for Justin, slashing the throats of the contents of Baby Strollers?
commented 2019-01-14 21:27:34 -0500
Showing of once again the Gov is the biggest discriminating entity out there, you can come here if it suits the photo op and otherwise fuck you, also big finger to the ones in que. Did they check her to see if she had previous travel (with visa)experience? Nope in this case we overlook a little detail like that. The laws are different for everyone, nobody is equal in this country.
commented 2019-01-14 21:23:32 -0500
Re. Rahaf Al-Qunun…..Liza will be happy about this new Canadian, as she posted a couple times last month that her favorite Immigrants or refugees are apostates, so the truth about Islam can be spread around.

There was another comment here suggesting that Ezra interview Rahaf. Great idea.
commented 2019-01-14 21:21:18 -0500
Freeland called her a Canadian, so you just know the fix was in already, and hence the photo op. Listening to her childish voice, grates on my nerves. The fact that she was negotiating NAFTA is still beyond comprehension. I guess we’ll soon start finding Canadian citizenship certificates in Cracker Jack boxes. How low our country has fallen since the liberals were placed in our parliament.
commented 2019-01-14 21:18:28 -0500
I’m not sure Rahaf is safe here in Canada. What a scandal it would be if she were to be attacked by the other Trudeau migrants.
commented 2019-01-14 21:10:36 -0500
Trudeau himself condemned the Chinese ruling this morning. Although it may be true that Freeland didn’t, that’s because the Prime Minister has responded.
commented 2019-01-14 21:07:51 -0500
Maybe this is trudeau securing a wife for his friend khadr?
commented 2019-01-14 21:06:42 -0500
Go easy on the Rahaf rescue, even if some of the details are suspicious.
I think Canadians would likely go along with a tweet by the PM welcoming apostates and other women living in an Islamic theocracy to “migrate” to Canada. But instead Justin tweeted a blanket open-borders policy that includes those adhering to vile cultural and religious practices (and everyone else looking to improve their standard of living).
Yes, Freeland is milking it, but considering how Trudeau is all about photo ops, it’s not the least bit surprising.
commented 2019-01-14 21:01:32 -0500
he’s a drug pusher and nailed here in canada several times. You want to deal in drugs in other countries then pay the price when you get nailed

Have you ever seen a U.S. or European female politician in ‘yoga’ pants’ while on official business for the government?

The Libranos are making sure that people forget Trudeau’s selfie reputation. I notice he hasn’t done much public traveling of late. The Libranos hope that average voters forget the bad old days of last year. But the yellow vest protests are proving that ordinary folks haven’t forgotten how totalist the government is these days.

I’m also disappointed that the truck convoy to Ottawa got cancelled. I had hoped that would go ahead. Global didn’t tell us why the convoy was terminated but I want to know why.
