Watch: “THEY WILL KILL ME,” Saudi woman, 18, is trapped in Bangkok airport for leaving Islam fleeing abusive, devout family #SaveRahaf

No Womens March for Rahaf. No CNN or NBC specials. The left and its media lapdogs stand with the Islam. Under Islamic law, apostasy is punishable by death. I receive emails from Muslims like Rahaf every week begging me to help them escape Muslim countries because they left Islam and fear death from their families, mosque and communities. But in a world and culture driven by leftist ideologies, my organization and my colleagues are smeared, defamed and libeled for our lifesaving work, while sharia totalitarians such as Linda Sarsour and savages like her are exalted.

‘I’m sure 100 percent they will kill me’: Saudi woman, 18, tweets that she is trapped in Bangkok airport after her passport was confiscated as she fled from her family who are angry she renounced Islam

  • Thai officials confirm they are holding Saudi Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18
  • Rahaf is trying to flee her physically and psychologically abusive family
  • She said her male guardian reported her for traveling ‘without his permission’ and that she was ‘100 per cent sure’ her family would kill her at home in Saudi
  • She fled two days ago and is trying to claim asylum in Australia, via Bangkok
  • Thai officials said it was a ‘family matter’ and she would be repatriated tomorrow
  • Activists and campaigners are publicising her case with the hashtag #SaveRahaf

MailOnline, January 6, 2018:

A Saudi woman is being held in Bangkok after trying to escape her abusive family who she says will kill her on her return to the kingdom.

In a series of tweets starting last night, Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, describes being followed around Bangkok airport by Saudi officials who then robbed her of her passport.

She fled her family on a trip to Kuwait two days ago and is trying to reach Australia, via Bangkok, to seek asylum after renouncing Islam.

But after a relative reported her for travelling without the company of a male guardian she was detained and, as of a video posted at 1pm GMT today, she was being held in the Miracle Transit Hotel at the airport.

Rahaf said: ‘My family is strict and locked me in a room for six months just for cutting my hair,’ she said, adding that she is certain she will be imprisoned if she is sent back.

‘I’m sure 100 percent they will kill me as soon as I get out of the Saudi jail,’ she said, adding that she was ‘scared’ and ‘losing hope’.

As of an update posted at around 2.30pm GMT, Rahaf was in a hotel near the airport with multiple security and immigration officials preventing her from leaving the building.

At 4.30pm she Tweeted the President of the United states directly, pleading: ‘@realDonaldTrump please help me. I’m hoping that you heard about me. I’m Saudi girl who fled from her family. Now I could be killed if they drag me back to my male guardian.’

President Trump considers the kingdom’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, a close ally, and has rejected the findings of his own intelligence agencies which linked ‘MBS’, as he is known, to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, tweeted: ‘I have been detained in an airport hotel. I will be forcibly repatriated tomorrow to Kuwait and then Saudi. There is an airport person who constantly follows me. I can’t even ask for protection or asylum in Thailand.’

Rahaf said on Twitter: ‘I have been threatened by several staff from the Saudi embassy and the Kuwaiti airlines, and they said ‘If you run, we will find you and kidnap you, then deal with you’ I really don’t know how they are going to behave in case I run.’

In another tweet she said: ‘I have been detained in an airport hotel. I will be forcibly repatriated tomorrow to Kuwait and then Saudi.

‘There is an airport person who constantly follows me. I can’t even ask for protection or asylum in Thailand. Thai police refuse to help me.’

She also shared a picture of her passport ‘because I want you to know I’m real and exist’.

Another tweet read: ‘I’m afraid my family will kill me.’

Thai officials claim it is a family matter and say she will be deported to Saudi – where renouncing Islam is punishable by death, and activists say women are at risk of ‘honour killings’ by family members – tomorrow at 11am.

It is a chilling echo of the case of Dina Ali Lasloom, 24, a Saudi woman who in April 2017 was held for 13 hours in Manilla airport while trying to flee a forced marriage. She was forcibly taken back to Saudi Arabia by uncles and never heard from again.
