Saudi Arabia is selling off Canadian securities in response to Ottawa’s criticism of the arrest of a female activist, the Financial Times reports.
Riyadh says it’s ready to take the step despite possible financial losses.

 

According to the newspaper, Saudi Arabia’s overseas asset managers were told to dump Canadian equities, bonds and cash holdings “no matter the cost.”

Saudi Arabia is not a major investor in Canada, according to the FT source, but the Kingdom wants to send a strong signal to authorities in Ottawa.

The diplomatic rift between Saudi Arabia and Canada began after Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland demanded the release from prison Saudi women’s rights activist Samar Badawi, who has family in Canada.

This will teach the Canadians to choose their friends more carefully 🙂
The Canadians could of course do the right thing and give aid to the Houthis 🙂

I’m gonna help you : I come from Dar al-Kuffar, in a country which took attacks from ISIS, al-Qaeda, IRGC, Hezbollah, PLO, PFLP and some other roaches I forget.

And we know you has a wänker for the shithadists in Tehran that prefer to mass-murder their own people, e.g. the execution of 30,000 political prisoners to celebrate Khamenei becoming Supreme Guide of a revolution Khomeini and his thugs didn’t really participated but just came to power after a coup. Which’s Basij has became even more infamous than the Shah’s nefarious Savak. Which’s parody of justice hangs around 1,000 ppl a year, when these manage to make it to the court alive. Which funds terrorist organisations for decades, which blame any of its failures on the zios while they’re not… Read more »

Houthis bark Alla-Uh-Akhbar, baby!
Only heretics bark it since the truth is that Kuffar-Uh-Akhbar.
I prefer being an idiot than carrying your Down-Syndrome connected to the fact you have 100% consanguinity in your family, thanks to the habit of heavily marriage between 1st gen cousins…
