Twitter account shut down following alarming tweet

A tweet that appeared while the dispute between Canada and Saudi Arabia developed. (TWITTER)
An alarming Twitter response to the developing Saudi Arabia-Canada dispute that appeared to show a passenger jet flying into Toronto’s CN Tower was quickly deleted Monday
The Twitter account belonging to infographic_KSA, who describe themselves as “a voluntary non-profit project managed by a group of Saudi youth who are interested in technology and social media,” but widely seen as a pro- Saudi government, initially posted the threatening photo with the words: “Sticking one’s nose where it doesn’t belong!”
Below those words were “As the Arabic saying goes: He who interferes with what doesn’t concern him finds what doesn’t please him.”
An apology was quickly issued and the Twitter account was shut down later in the day.
(TWITTER)
The posts came as Saudi Arabia ordered Canada’s ambassador to leave the country and froze all new trade and investment on Sunday. Saudi Arabia’s move came followed a tweet Friday from Global Affairs Canada which expressed concerns about the arrests of civil and women’s rights activists and asking the Saudi government to immediately release them.
Before shutting down, the site posted: “Earlier we posted an image which was inappropriate, which is why we deleted the post immediately. The aircraft was intended to symbolize the return of the Ambassador, we realize this was not clear and any other meaning was unintentional. We apologize to anyone who was offended.”
For their part, Toronto Police said they were aware of the tweet: “The Toronto Police Service continuously monitors security issues within the city of Toronto and around the world. In response, we make the appropriate adjustments to our plans in order to mitigate the potential risks to public safety.”
Saudi state airline Saudia also announced Monday that it would suspend flights to and from Toronto starting Aug. 13.

We should have cut ties with these assholes a long time ago. Unfortunately, the Prime Minister is lacking in the testicle department, so the best he could do was whimper about human rights and let them do the severing.

You call it religious hate, while it is not the religious hate, but the noble Islam teachings as they are pure in the glorious Quran.

Here, I call Canada, the European countries and the other free countries of the world .. to be alert about the Zionist activity including their organizations and lobby especially the economic nets of bankers: these Wicked Zionists are like the octopus or spider and worse and more dangerous.

Before retiring, you went to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq .. to make your ?? glory by transgressing on other countries .. and to get good salary and income as the mercenary .
But no chance given to you to fight other Muslim countries yet .. certainly you are good and you are civilized.

================================================== ====

Don't worry, Canadians: Trump the Zionist Jew will solve the problem for your behalf .. just by phone: he phones his minions and servants: the puppy kings and princes: the servants of the Wicked Zionists of Tel Aviv.

So if Canada is truly concerned about the human rights .. etc, why didn't they defend the true Islamic free men imprisoned in jails full of them in the Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi jails are full of the free Islamic faithfuls, since a considerable time.

While Canada was pathetic only about some people: secular and non-religious: the servants of the West!?

The same Twitter twit in Canada that sent this tweet towards the Saudis is the same one that sent one toward Trump calling him an idiot which put us way down on a trade deal list. Wahhabism should be curbed world wide and their human rights record should be looked at but it should be by the UN and the world to condemn it not just Canada. This same attitude got the Gov. laughed outta China, India, and a host of other countries including the US when they stated that a progressive deal is important, but it should be in a subsection of the agreement not in the meat of the agreement.

I'm starting to wonder if that threatening tweet didn't originate with a Russian "disruptor". If a Saudi really sent that threat, he/she is terminally stupid. The discord that it is generating is right out of Putin's current play book, though.

As far as the rest of the Saudi outrage is concerned, don't let the door hit your ass when you leave, Abdullah.

I think it was a bad joke by one of the Saudis in response to the Tweet that started it all

LINK

Quote:

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada isn't backing down from its position that led to diplomatic sanction from Saudi Arabia.
Freeland made the comments Monday afternoon in Vancouver a day after Saudi Arabia announced it would cease new trade deals with Canada and expel the Canadian ambassador.
"I will say Canada is very comfortable with our position. We are always going to speak up for human rights; we're always going to speak up for women's rights; and that is not going to change," she told a news conference.
"Canadians expect our foreign policy to be driven by and to embody Canadian values, and that is how we intend to continue our foreign policy."

Quote:

© Jimmy Jeong/Canadian Press Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland told a news conference Monday that Canada stands by its comments about human rights in Saudi Arabia that led to diplomatic sanctions from the country.
On Friday, Global Affairs Canada had tweeted, "Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women's rights activists in Saudi Arabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful human rights activists."
The Saudi foreign ministry ordered Canada's ambassador, Dennis Horak, to leave the country, and called the use of "immediately release" in Canada's tweet "unfortunate, reprehensible, and unacceptable in relations between states."

Freeland's office sparked the fire with their tweet IMO

Of course putin created this from his own keyboard, I see your on the same page as cnn so perhaps you can provide a hint of evidence for your claim. Cnn has used every adjective in the book y'know assumed, appeared n' indicated, etc but presented diddly for bed rock evidence reverting only to the house of cards the special investigator is constructing to try and finger russia.
Have noticed no mention from ottawa on all the humanitarian action the saudis have bestowed upon yemen, we hafta understand this could hurt our sales of war toys.

With all that's going on in the world this seems like a fairly minor internal issue that will have to be resolved in the country. But such things can be exagerated out of all proportion when it becomes a cause celebre of the feminist coven that rules the Liberal Party.. and the milquetoast fop of a PM.. Justin.. who cringes before the sisterhood's dictates.

The two countries mean little to each other so we are an appropriate pawn in their game of hide the human rights.

Yeah but... here's the thing.

Canada's back!

Remember that? Remember the smugness of Liberals, of Trudeau, as they acted as if Canada had been some sort of international outcast prior to the Liberals getting elected? Now with Mr. Selfie in charge, the world was going to swoon and embrace us as long lost buddies!

Except that hasn't happened.

Russia doesn't like us. China doesn't like us. The US doesn't like us.
Those three are kinda, sorta important.

Our screwing around with the TPP antagonized Japan and infuriated Australia.

India... do I have to say anything about how India feels about us now?

The only thing the Liberals had going for them in terms of foreign affairs success was that backing away from our loud support of Israel made the Muslim world more comfortable. It was them, and Saudi money, which controls a lot of third world votes at the UN, which cost us the UN seat last time. And Trudeau wants that seat so bad he salivates just thinking about how smug he'll be if we get it. And now the Saudis are pissed at our virtue signaling, and will make sure we don't get it.

So much for the Liberals' glorious new dawn of Canada's new place in the world.

Cuts ties with Saudi Arabia.

Upgrade our refineries in Eastern Canada to refine our Bitumin

Build a pipeline East instead of using rail cars.

Problem solved!

Like if we're taking extra heavy oil from Venezuela then there should be no reason why we don't prioritize our oil first.

I believe a few more things have to happen before any of that list is a done deal. We import oil for the same reason the US imports coal from Argentinian. The same multi-national companies own both companies and one is given a boost in production to help their production and profit margins are higher so Canadian oil stays in the ground to make shareholders more money per year.

If there is a bunch of people like you, certainly Canada will prosper.

According to your corrupt thinking, you deem the US, Russia and China against Canada!
While all these are not against Canada but only according to your sick imagination.

I tell you a secret: although you don't deserve to know it .. all the world likes Canada .. till now of course .. unless they support the Wicked Zionists of Tel Aviv.

Moreover, I tell the Canadian a secret:
The Canadian better make good ties with the Arab and Muslim world .. which will rationally and wisely far better than enslaving themselves to the Wicked Zionists of Tel Aviv and their allies inside Canada.

At the rate that the planet is heating up, Saudi Arabia and it's surrounding neighbours will become uninhsbitsble desert in about a generation or two. Those same arrogant pricks are going to try to emmigrate to safer places like Canada to survive. They had better make peace with us.

Did you miss the part about them having a shore-line for 75% of their border. Solar and desalination plants were made for each other.

You are aware a 'shoreline' is where land and water meet right? Before they lose any the Dead Sea will be a rift that is wider than the African Rift is at the moment.
55C could evaporate a lot of water in a day and underground condensers would turn it into distilled water.

Perhaps ship them them some Hudson Bay Ice eh?
