Canada did the right thing by speaking out against human rights abuses but I am sure Trudeau will jump to please the Saudis. We would be better off having no ties with this islamofacist state.

Well hopefully this will mean Saudi Arabia will stop funding mosques and schools in Canada.

From 2016:

Saudis are spending millions building mosques and Islamic centers in Canada – Full Report

Quote:
The Saudis are known to have funded mosques in Ottawa and Calgary and an Islamic centre in Quebec City, and are believed to have funded many other institutions across Canada. According to a high-level 2004 task-force report on terrorist financing by the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations, in its desire to make the world Sharia-compliant, Saudi Arabia spent hundreds of millions of dollars to fund 210 Islamic centres and 1,359 mosques in the U.S., Canada and other countries around the world. “Saudi Arabia funds the global propagation of Wahhabism, a brand of Islam that, in some instances, supports militancy by encouraging divisiveness and violent acts against Muslims and non-Muslims,” it reported.

It’s Trump, not Trudeau, who sucks up to the Saudis.

They've been doing this all over the world, not just in Canada.


Gotta love the final paragraph of the Star article:


The report was not supported by Liberal senators on the committee. It was denounced by the National Council of Canadian Muslims as stigmatizing and failing to offer effective solutions to the challenge of violent extremism.

A number of news organizations have picked up on the airplane tweet...

Edited to add:

LOL! Now, not only has the tweet been deleted, the entire twitter account has disappeared. I’m glad I read the responses, including by Canadians, before that happened.

For those who didn’t see the tweet:
