THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT — Canada is doing something that the United States has never been able to do, and that is standing up to Saudi Arabia. And, as a result of standing up to the tyrannical Saudi Arabian government, Canadians were issued a dire threat suggesting a new 9/11 style attack on their own soil.
The incident began after Canada demanded that Saudi Arabia release several civil rights activists who’ve recently been thrown in jail. The Saudi government responded by giving Canadian ambassador, Dennis Horak 24 hours to leave the country and then recalled its own ambassador to Canada, saying that it retained “its rights to take further action.”
Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.
