No Women’s 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.
“Saudi teen granted asylum in Canada gets 24-hour security amid online threats,” by Andrea Janus, CBC, January 15, 2019:
A Saudi teen who fled alleged abuse by her family considers herself “one of the lucky ones” now that she has arrived as a refugee in Canada, but the agency tasked with getting her settled has still arranged 24-hour security for her in the wake of online threats.
Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, arrived in Toronto on the weekend as a government-sponsored refugee, after taking to social media to allege abuse at the hands of her father. She said she was also fleeing attempts to force her into an arranged marriage.
After locking herself in a Bangkok hotel room and tweeting details of her plight, including fears of what would happen to her if she returned to her family in Saudi Arabia, Canada permitted her entry as a government-sponsored refugee, acting on a United Nations request.
Since arriving in Canada, she has dropped her last name, instead using Mohammed, saying her family has disowned her.
Mohammed’s public campaign, which was covered widely by international media, has also led to online threats against her, according to COSTI, the agency contracted by the federal government to help refugees, including Mohammed, get settled in Toronto. So steps have been taken to ensure there is someone with her at all times, be it an agency staffer or a private security guard.
It’s hard to say how serious the threats are, Mario Calla, executive director of COSTI, told reporters Tuesday morning.
But, Calla said, “we are taking these seriously because she’s our responsibility and so we want to be sure she’s protected.”
Without offering details about what round-the-clock security will cost — other than to say it’s “not a great amount” — Calla said either the federal government or COSTI will foot the bill.
But he said it’s “not unusual” for the agency to hire private security for refugees. There are about two “urgent protection” cases each year in which the government will expedite a refugee claim and ensure that person has extra security….
