Trump Abandons Canada in Saudi Human Rights Fight
The kingdom appears emboldened by Washington's willingness under Donald
Trump to de-emphasize rights issues when it comes to its allies

For years, Canadian pressure on human rights in Saudi Arabia had elicited
no more than a standard rejection. But all that changed last week, when a
Canadian complaint was translated into Arabic and set off a diplomatic row.

When Riyadh responded to a call from Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia
Freeland to release civil society activists with an abrupt severing of
diplomatic and trade ties, Canadian officials were left scrambling to
understand what had happened.

What Ottawa did not anticipate was that in the eyes of the Saudis they had
crossed a red line.

On Aug. 2, Freeland tweeted in English and French, calling for the release
of two jailed Saudi human rights activists. The following day, Canada's
foreign affairs department sent another tweet, urging Saudi Arabia to
"immediately release" those and other activists.
That was translated into Arabic by its embassy in Riyadh and sent out on
Aug. 5 to its approximately 12,000 followers.

The reaction from Saudi Arabia was swift. Hours after the Arabic tweet, the
Saudi government recalled its ambassador, barred Canada's envoy from
returning and placed a ban on new trade.
Two Gulf sources said it was the tweet from the embassy that upset Saudi
officials the most.
"Matters were being handled through usual channels but the tweet was a
break with diplomatic norms and protocol," said one of the sources,
speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.



The sources did not clarify exactly how the tweet broke with diplomacy, but
regional experts said it was the step of sending it to a domestic audience
that would have angered Saudi officials.
"The Saudi retaliation took some time to allow for political talks in
closed doors," Salman al-Ansari, founder of the Washington-based Saudi
American Public Relation Affairs Committee, said.
"They thought the Canadians would take steps to back off, but all of a
sudden they tweeted it in Arabic. This was a very provocative action by the
Canadians to try to embarrass the Saudis in front of their people. The
Saudis did not take this lightly at all."
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir raised the issue of the Arabic tweet in
a call with Freeland on Tuesday, and complained about interference, a
person familiar with the matter who declined to be named said.

Canadian officials say there was nothing remarkable about the Arabic tweet,
which merely repeated Ottawa's stated position in a common practice for
delegations abroad.
Canada has raised the issue of civil society activist detentions before. As
recently as May, Canada's Riyadh embassy tweeted in English its concern
about activist arrests and said it was "crucial that the rule of law" be
respected, with no public Saudi response.
'COLLATERAL DAMAGE'
The outsized reaction to the tweet underscores how the kingdom is taking a
much harsher stance against what it perceives as Western interference in
its internal affairs on issues like human rights, perhaps emboldened by
Washington's willingness under Donald Trump to de-emphasize rights issues
when it comes to its allies.

Riyadh and Washington have been enjoying an exceptionally close
relationship – tense during the administration of former U.S. President
Barack Obama – as both Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Trump
share similar concerns about Iran. By contrast, Trump and Trudeau locked
horns during the G7 summit in June in an unusually public manner.
The U.S. State Department this week urged the two sides to use diplomacy to
resolve the dispute.

"Canada is collateral damage," said Thomas Juneau, an assistant professor
and Middle East expert at the University of Ottawa. "This fundamentally is
not about Canada. This is about Saudi Arabia wanting to send a broader
message to its neighbours, to other democracies."

Canadian foreign affairs officials including Freeland, who were gathered at
a Vancouver hotel for a conference on Sunday, were taken aback by the Saudi
reaction and left scrambling. Canada, government insiders said, was still
unclear on what steps it can take to "fix its big mistake", as a Saudi
official called it.

"I don't think we have a conclusive understanding as of right now," said a
Canadian government source. "There may be the need for another call
(between Freeland and Jubeir). We're also obviously talking to our partners
about it. We do not wish to have bad relations with them (the Saudis)."



Thousands of Twitter accounts bearing Saudi flags tweeted on the dispute,
elevating the phrase "Saudi Arabia expels the Canadian ambassador" to one
of the world's most popular hashtags. Many of the tweets used suspiciously
similar language, often a sign of a coordinated campaign by bots, or
automated accounts.
Saud al-Qahtani, a senior royal court adviser, tweeted a link announcing
the decision to ban new trade on Monday along with the hashtag "Saudi
first" - echoing a phrase popularized by Trump.
