Hi @ShanifaNasser, aren't u the @CBCNews reporter with ties to the family of the ISIS #Danforth jihadi? Now u use our tax dollars to do Saudis' dirty work against @Rahaf84427714? Shame on u woman. U r a disgrace. Walk in shoes just one day. cc. @CBCOmbudhttps://t.co/zxoRvogF9J
Rahaf al Qunun, the 18-year-old Saudi teen granted in asylum in Canada, has pledged to use her freedom to campaign to end male guardianship in Saudi Arabia, saying if there is no change more women like her will flee https://t.co/1geiZF2AnU
Islamic studies journalist seeks out people to delegitimize Rahaf: “Many on the far-right love exMuslims, & many ex-Muslims on the far-right often present themselves as so-called native informants presenting to the mainstream the real truth' about Muslims” https://t.co/1z2CKoQYyp
I’m not an immigration expert but #RahafMohammed claims her family has threatened to kill her for renouncing Islam.
How does this meet the test of asylum in Canada? It’s not the Country but her family.
W’d this not qualify millions around the world?
This story is atrocious. While it's normally frowned upon to write a piece questioning a refugee case, because Rahaf is supported by the likes of @TarekFatah & @ConfessionsExMu we're now all supposed to be skeptical of the girl?!
This is so ridiculous. "Of course, the rescuing of oppressed people is a Western narrative in many different ways. . ." Always a "narrative" with these pseuds. It was a crisis. The UNHCR pleaded with us. Why take her in? BECAUSE WE CAN. #Problematizomatic https://t.co/JCPzZ9Rbq8
« J’ai déjà été enfermée pendant six mois parce que je m’étais coupé les cheveux » : Rahaf Mohammed Al-Qunun, Saoudienne réfugiée au Canada, raconte son ancienne vie « d’esclave » https://t.co/Ue5C0HRzSh
Good for CBC raising some hard questions about this unusual case. One can be happy for Ms al-Qunan and still have serious questions about the process and the greasy politicization of her arrival by Freeland (given we are now told her privacy is paramount). https://t.co/JAdelhHxQi
Who benefits from rescuing Rahaf?
Why rain on a parade? I couldn't give a flying F#%k about "rebuilding" our relationship with a dictatorial country that treats its women like property. If Canada really did an FU to Saudi, they did it with class.
Beware those who assert "family values" as a supposed justification to deny female members of the family their individual human rights. That's the Saudi line, but Saudi Arabia is hardly alone. https://t.co/ADCYG0b3aM
An insightful interview with the inspirational Rahaf al-Qunun. Rahaf's family have now publicly disowned her after she escaped oppression and abuse in Saudi Arabia. Rahaf is now safely in Canada. https://t.co/4MTiRKZwVq
With many IF NOT ALL #Canadian IMAM'S quoting and pushing ISLAM and KORAN teachings on Canadian Muslims who are supposed to be integrating, is this a good idea? Leaving ISLAM is a crime punishable by DEATH.
“I think that the number of women fleeing from the Saudi administration and abuse will increase, especially since there is no system to stop them,” said Qunun. “I hope my story encourages other women to be brave and free.” https://t.co/GQMDcqFPTl #Rahaf #Saudi

Lots of make up, eh? So, her new job will be to. .. campaign?
.@RyersonECS prof Mehrunnisa Ali says she is concerned with the message this case sends, including that winning public attention could make a claim more likely to proceed than another: https://t.co/ctoN66xQi8
