What happens when a fake ID, a Pak Jamaat protégé, and two Soros funded agents walk into a bar?

They produce a survey on India’s caste issue!

Story of EqualityLabs, Soros, million dollars funding, and an experiment run from the US in 1999.

#SB403 introduced by Senator Aisha Wahab to ban #castediscrimination was passed by California Senate Judiciary Committee last month was based on a ‘single’ caste survey report by #EqualityLabs. The Survey in question is a 2018 survey conducted by 4 people.

Who are they?

The very first ‘author’ of the Equality Labs ‘caste report’ – Maari Zwick is a ghost author! No such person exists.  And after we exposed the fake ID, it has now been deactivated. (Pls read our last report for more details).

Manzoor Masih, Rehmat Masih, and Salamat Masih were #arrested in May 1993. Maulvi Fazl-e-Haq had accused Salamat Masih, who was only thirteen, of writing #blasphemous slogans on the wall of the local #mosque.
But testimony emerged that Salamat Masih could not read or (1/16)

#VirSavarkar never pleaded for himself but for all.
Some time back, a document from British library on #Savarkar was made available. It's not the Savarkar's petition from jail, but the notes of #British govt on petition. See the page, where it's written, 'Petition by -1/4
VD Savarkar for an amnesty to all political prisoners'. In the bracket it's written, ' not necessarily include himself'.
What does it mean? He had taken up the case of all political prisoners, not himself ....
See also the 1st page of that document, where it's clear; - 2/4
Letter No 64, 15 January 1918. It also says, #Savarkar pleaded 'general #amnesty may be granted to all persons convicted of political offences...'.

There's not a chance in the world I'm granting #amnesty, or giving a mulligan, to all the people who willfully refused to be reasonable or consider all the data. I will #neverforgetthesepeople
Nobody should be asked to forget this:
And the "ethicists" who were consulted as experts? They should be stripped of all titles and barred from ever again being near a student or any position of authority. I will #neverforgetthesepeople They made life hard during Covid and sometimes even impossible.

The Mazhilis approved a draft law on amnesty related to the January events. The text of the draft law states that persons who have committed murder and caused harm to health are subject to #amnesty.

@NachoSAmor Image
The authorities want to grant amnesty to law enforcement officers who shot civilians, including children, pensioners, mothers, as well as beaten and tortured in custody.

Despite the fact that the authorities claim that persons involved in torture do not fall under
the amnesty, in practice, the authorities have not brought a single employee to justice, and they can also reclassify criminal cases of torture into cases that fall under the amnesty.

Thus, not a single law enforcement officer will be held responsible for the murder of

The Russian Army – who is dying in the Kremlin's genocidal war in Ukraine?

RU is losing the war that it started in 🇺🇦 – more than 50k KIA 🇷🇺 and 300k more to be recruited as cannon fodder by the Kremlin. What are the 🇷🇺 soldiers dying for?
RU leadership believed in its own propaganda: ignoring the dysfunctional state of the RU army, miscalculated the UA resistance and the Western support.
First, 🇷🇺 suffered massive losses in Northern UA & failed to capture Kyiv.

Mit diesem 🧵gehe ich auf die von #Amnesty erhoben Vorwürfe ein und betrachte sie aus völkerrechtlicher Perspektive. Das in dem Artikel angesprochen International Humanitarian Law (Genfer Abkommen + Zusatzprotokoll I) ist dabei die Rechtsgrundlage.
"Ukrainian forces have put civilians in harm’s way by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas including in schools and hospitals" hiermit beginnt der Report von @amnesty
Der Art. 52 ZP I GA I-IV sagt folgendes aus
"1. zivile Objekte dürfen weder angegriffen noch zum Gegenstand von Repressalien gemacht werden. Zivile Objekte sind alle Objekte, die nicht militärische Ziele im Sinne des Absatzes 2 sind."

#Amnesty International

After workingthrough the reaction on the AI report below - observations:

1. looks like the meltdown of another NGO / Do-gooders group - crashing into a real war in Europe

Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians…
2. unable to contextualize facts and give them the appropriate position in the overall picture
3. as experts indicate: insufficient knowledge of the chosen topic ( IHL/law of armed conflict)
4. marginal communication skills - CEO made pissy statement - since then - nothing
5. no anticipation that social media is part of the war fighting environment: Russia took the @amnesty report and turned it against Ukraine
6. unclear why @amnesty Ukraine office warnings have not been taken into account
6.1: head of this office declined

Voor degenen die van de juridische details houden, draadje. In beginsel: mensenrechtenorganisaties zoals #Amnesty vervullen belangrijke taak door te signaleren als sprake is van schendingen zoals van #oorlogsrecht. Maar hier is het niet zo duidelijk dat dat ook geschonden is.
In een gewapend conflict moeten beide partijen zich houden aan het oorlogsrecht, ongeacht wie de agressor is. Rusland is hier de agressor, Oekraïne verdedigt zich. Maar beide landen zijn gebonden aan regels die vooral dienen om onnodige extra burgerslachtoffers te voorkomen.
Zo is er onderscheid tussen militaire doelwitten en burgerobjecten. Als strijdende partij burgerobject gebruikt voor de strijd, dan kan dit een legitiem militair doelwit worden. Maar alleen indien noodzakelijk & proportioneel en zoveel mogelijk voorkomen van burgerslachtoffers.

Ich hatte gerade eine Diskussion mit einem Angestellten von @amnesty_de an einem Stand am Bahnhof Berlin-Südkreuz über den Vorwurf, dass #Israel angeblich ein „Apartheidsstaat“ ist. Ich erzähle kurz wie das Gespräch verlaufen ist: (Thread | Unbedingt durchlesen)
Zuerst habe ich ihn gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „#Apartheid“ bezogen auf Israel Sinn ergibt, wenn man bedenkt, dass Araber nicht nur hohe Positionen in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens haben, sondern dazu auch noch per Gesetz gleichberechtigt sind: Keine Antwort.
Dann habe ich gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „Apartheid“ Sinn ergibt, wenn man auf tatsächliche Apartheidsstaaten (früheres Südafrika bsp.) schaut, in welchen es eine klare Rassentrennung in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens gab. Seine Antwort: „Ich sehe Parallelen.“

Es handelt sich um einen Krieg. Infos sind daher immer mit Vorsicht zu betrachten. /TN #Russland
Fangen wir mit einer guten Nachricht an.

Am Samstag gab es einen Angriff auf eine nukleare Forschungseinrichtung in #Charkiw. Wie die #IAEA nun mit Berufung auf die #Ukraine mitteilte, gibt es keine Schäden am nuklearen Material.

Die Einrichtung war auch vorher allen bekannt.
Der #Kreml-Sprecher #Peskow hat noch 1mal klargestellt, dass keine Atombomben in der #Ukraine eingesetzt werden.

Verschiedene Medien verbreiteten Panik wegen seines #BBC-Interviews. Die staatliche Existenz Russlands & die Ereignisse in der Ukraine hätten "nix miteinander zu tun"

@Jo_Singh_ If GOI av nothing to hide they'd let #Amnesty, #HRW & other #HumanRights Orgs. to carry out their independent investigations. Khalra exposed mass illegal cremetion grounds across Panjab, files which are sealed to this day. 6K in one of 13 districts alone!
@Jo_Singh_ Here's an honest unbias paper that provides an objective analysis of the religious, political, social and economic factors, which led to the sad and extremely tragic events in the Punjab during 1980s. No political spin unlike what's being propagated by GOI minions, but 360 view!

@hirndummy @lange_tobias_hh Völliger Quatsch! Ich beginne mal so: Bedeutet der Bericht von Amnesty, dass Juden (und nur Juden) kein Recht auf nationale Selbstbestimmung haben? Nein, es spricht den Juden dieses Recht nicht ab. Stattdessen besteht sie darauf, dass Juden nicht 1/

Fino ad agosto, nella prigione di Kandahar erano detenuti centinaia di terroristi talebani. Col cambio di regime, la situazione si è capovolta.
Abbiamo ottenuto un permesso speciale per visitare le celle che ospitano i detenuti e la visita è stata sconvolgente.
Questo carcere ospita prigionieri politici, ex militari del vecchio esercito ma soprattutto tossicodipendenti e omosessuali.
Di 1800 detenuti, 1400 sono persone con problemi di droga ed uno dei primi atti dei talebani è stato proprio quello di rastrellarli e rinchiuderli dentro.
Stessa sorte per i gay e queste immagini documentano il settore adibito a queste due fattispecie.
Le persone sono ammassate in corridoi angusti e bui. Non c'è luce, non c'è alcuna dignità per questi esseri umani. Le celle sono sporche oltre ogni immaginazione.

#Nangarhar Governor Office:
Scores of Ahl-e-Hadith scholars pledged allegiance to #IEA in Nangarhar today.
"We are not in favor of revenge& violence. Anyone can live peacefully under the Islamic Emirate of #AFG using the #amnesty announced by the IEA," Nangarhar governor said.
This comes as extrajudicial killings continue in Nangarhar, mainly in Jalalabad City.
Last night a religious scholar teaching at a local Madrassa was shot killed in Qasaba area of Jalalabad.
Meanwhile, two young men were found dead today morning near the ring road in Jalalabad.

#Amnestyinternational has had a rather dubious role in #India. It's funding & activities have been repeatedly questioned by both UPA & NDA governments. Former PM Manmohan Singh had red flagged the NGO during #KudanKulam nuke plant issue. In fact in Feb 2014 UPA froze it's funding
In 2009 #Amnestyinternational had #FCRA issues. Even under NDA rule Amnesty funding remained rather opaque. @dir_ed probed dubious fund flow pattern. RBI put Amnesty in prior permission category due to suspect funds flow, acc to the #Govt. Even during UPA funding was suspect: BJP
MHA had #Amnestyinternational funding looked into & concluded that Human Rights cannot be an excuse for defying the law of the land.MHA said in order to circumvent the FCRA regulations Amnesty UK remitted large amounts of money to 4 entities registered in India classifying it FDI
