Two saudi women found dead in NY after saudi embassy urged them to return to Saudi-Arabia.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/two-saudi-sisters-found-dead-in-hudson-had-sought-political-asylum?ref=home

Two women who were found dead and bound together in the Hudson River last week were sisters from Saudi Arabia who had reportedly been ordered to return home after requesting asylum in the U.S. Police in New York have yet to determine a cause of death for the two women, identified as 16-year-old Tala Farea and 22-year-old Rotana Farea.

...

But the sisters’ mother, who also lives in the U.S., told detectives she’d received a call from the Saudi Arabian Embassy just a day before her daughters disappeared urging the family to leave the U.S. because the two young women had applied for political asylum, the Associated Press reports.




For Kashoggi, Saudi-Arabia's first version of events was that the 15 agents wanted to talk him into leaving the US and returning to Saudi-Arabia.

25. New York Times article is bizarre

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/29/nyregion/sisters-dead-river-saudi-arabia.html

1. “The police are investigating the possibility that the sisters may have carried out a suicide pact, taping themselves together and throwing themselves in the river. But detectives have not ruled out murder.”

2. “The mother also received a call from the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, informing her that her daughters had applied for asylum, the police said.”

It's hard to imagine them not using the internet. nt

35. The father traveled back and forth frequently so I don't imagine it was safe to post

They lived in Virginia but that doesn’t mean the government wouldn’t take action against them..evidently.

They used Snapchat to talk to each other, supposedly.
What is happening with the dad, I wonder?

Falls Church... so much to this story to raise eyebrows.

We did trick or treating last Sunday and all I did was scare the shit out of a lot of ghouls with my motion sensored bat and witch.

One would think that Trump would be ok giving asylum to Saudis since Jared is a BFF of MBS.

6. While trumps trying to scare people claiming a caravan

Has criminals and disease and is a major threat to all of us, and Saudi's here in this country by this rogue prince are being murdered and trump does nothing now to the Saudi's for it, except rewards them with new deals. Trumps sending them a clear message he'll allow this to continue. He value's money over others life. More now will run to vote for the Democrats in protest. Trump is creating a perfect storm against him and the gop right before this election with everything he's doing , saying , and allowing to take place here.

But it's not only $ for weapons but their oil we're dependent upon. Americans are very short-sighted. Willfully ignorant dumbfucks ruled by evil dumbfucks.

15. Not only is he sending US troops to the border,

but he has incited an influx of militia to head for the border. Landowners along the border are very worried. This will not go down well. Perhaps some of those landlords who are worried about citizen militias on their property will wake up and join the blue wave. Not optimistic about this however.

This administration certainly won't protect them.

22. Happened at same time as crackdown on female activist and others

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/aug/22/saudi-arabia-seeks-its-first-death-penalty-against-a-female-human-rights-activist?CMP=Saudi Arabian prosecutors are seeking the death sentence for five human rights activists, including a woman who is thought to be the first female campaigner in the country facing execution, rights groups have said.

Israa al-Ghomgham, a Shia activist arrested with her husband in 2015, will be tried in the country’s terrorism tribunal even though charges she faces relate to peaceful activism, Human Rights Watch said.

“Any execution is appalling, but seeking the death penalty for activists like Israa al-Ghomgham, who are not even accused of violent behaviour, is monstrous,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at HRW.

Trudeau defies Saudi Arabia and says Canada will stand up for human rights Together with her husband, Moussa al-Hashem, and three other defendants, Ghomgham faces charges that “do not resemble recognisable crimes”, HRW said. They include participating in protests, chanting slogans hostile to the regime, attempting to inflame public opinion and filming protests and publishing on social media.

30. One young woman and one girl

The headline and text state "two women", but it actually is one 22-year-old young woman, and one 16-year-old girl. So Saudi Arabian girls are now being killed in the United States.
