A Muslim woman from Saudi Arabia is being held in at Bangkok airport after trying to escape her devout abusive family who she says will kill her on her return to the kingdom because she left Islam. In a series of terrified tweets, Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, described being followed around Bangkok airport by Saudi officials who then robbed her of her passport.
The BBC Asian Network has been asking its listeners this morning whether they support Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun leaving her family, or presumably whether they think she should be killed. This may shock some, but it shouldn’t. It is quite the norm under Islam. So if you accept sharia and Islamic mores, you must sanction this as well. What is shocking is how Western media, academia, and cultural elites sold out our hard won freedoms for a riyal.
The submission to Islamization and sharia “norms” is a slippery slope. Accommodation gives weigh to more demands and more accommodation. The left-stream media has been at the forefront of islamization. When I held a free speech event in Garland, Texas and was fired upon by devout Muslims, enemedia outlets practically called for my death. So how surprising is this? The BBC is sold out to the jihadis and the Jew-haters long ago. They will only get worse.

The BBC Asian Network has been asking its listeners this morning whether they support Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun leaving her family, or presumably whether they think she should be killed. Seriously.
This question will not have come as a shock to regular listeners to the BBC Asian Network, who will be aware that it has a history of being tone deaf to contemporary moral norms. If a Tory MP had posed any of these questions, the ‘liberal’ left would have ended their careers…
The BBC Asian Network has the second highest budget of any BBC Radio station, and the lowest audience figures for any BBC station…
UPDATE: BBC Asian Network has now deleted their original tweet, but Guido has preserved it for readers in horrifying technicolour:
