A Diplomatic skirmish between Canada and Saudi Arabia is turning very nasty, very fast.
Over the weekend, I reported that Saudi Arabia EJECTED Canada's Ambassador and RECALLED their Ambassador from Ottawa. They also put a HALT to all new Investment Transactions and new business dealings with Canada.
Today, Saudi Arabia announced the cancellation of all airline flights effective August 13, and has ORDERED the return home of some 7,000 15,000 Saudi students studying in Canada along with about 5,000 of their family members!
To give you an idea of exactly how severe this is becoming, take a look at what a Saudi Agency posted to Twitter this morning: It APPEARS as a threat to conduct a 9-11 style ATTACK upon Canada! Look:
Hiroshima marked the 73rd anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing on Monday, with its mayor making a fresh call for a world without nuclear weapons through dialogue but stopping short of explicitly urging Japan to join a global nuclear weapons ban treaty.
The Trump administration on Monday announced it would reinstate sanctions on Tehran after the US withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal — and Iran has made no shortage of vitriolic threats about what it may do in response.
Beginning Tuesday, the US plans to sanction Iran's central bank, sending a clear message to the US's European allies: Do business with the US, or do it with Iran, but not both.
Saudi Arabia today declared the Canadian Ambassador to be "persona non grata" and gave him 24 hours to get out of their country. In addition, the Saudis have placed an immediate FREEZE on all new trade and all new Investment transaction with Canada!
The peace and reconciliation deal with Israel, negotiated via Egypt and agreed to by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, is collapsing very rapidly. A lot of bad news coming out in the past couple of hours.
Intelligence sources confirm HAMAS is now building-up "kinetic forces" and there may be an outright attack launched against Israel from Gaza!
Palestinian Islamic Juhad (PIJ) leader Khaled Al Batash:“The new version of the Egyptian reconciliation agreement does not include lifting the PA sanctions on Gaza and paying Hamas security personnel thus making reconciliation impossible. The border marches will continue until the siege is lifted.”
