Something I posted in my original Twitter a few years back. I hope you enjoy it. I entitled it,
"#Apartheid My Ass!"
Apartheid My Ass!
#Israel is the only country in the Middle East that DOES NOT engage in #Apartheid.
Those who claim that Israel is an Apartheid 'regime' claim that compared to the civil rights of the Jewish majority in Israel, the civil rights of the Arab Muslim minority are discrimina­ted based upon their color, creed, religion and race.

Good that #SaudiArabia & #UAE have pledged #NetZero but #GCC total domestic emissions are only 2.4% of world’s. The #EU needs to focus on the emissions they export, mostly to #China, I argue how: bit.ly/2XOK8bG 2/
As shown by the #SaudiGreenInitiative & #MiddleEastGreenInitiative + #UAE willingness to host #COP 28, the #GCC leaders now see a political value in embracing the #climate agenda. This paper described what each #GCC country is actually *doing* about it: bit.ly/2XOK8bG 3/

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.

.@EuroMedoPt received an unprecedented number of Whatsapp screenshots of threats to kill #Arabs circulated among right-wing #Israeli citizens and empowered by the Israeli police.
This rhetoric and hate threats pose an imminent threat to the #Arab minority in #Israel, who already suffered from discrimination, neglect and crime over the past years.
Last month, @hrw issues a report titled "Threshold Crossed", accusing Israel of committing crimes of apartheid and persecution against the Palestinian population within Israel and in the Palestinian territories.

1/ Anghami reveals Live Radio: what is it? and how did we get to it?
Thread Time>

In 2010, @EddyMaroun & me decided to create a music service that became @anghami
Few know that the original idea was to build a website, and not a mobile app ! Live Radio
2/ In fact, our original pitch deck (with a logo that was never used) illustrated our idea of rooms where people can have an avatar & meet while listening to the same music all along.
3/ For us, it was basic: we used to discover music with other people, share with other people, and that's why we wanted a music service that connects music & people!

However, while working on the web business model, we struggled with monetization. We didn't want ads all along.

Reports on #Iran-#SaudiArabia intelligence contact in #Iraq.

#Zarif leaves #Qatar. #Saudi FM lands in #Doha, invites Emir Sheikh Tamim to meet the King in #Riyadh.

#Tehran (& the #US?) appears to try to take the #Gulf on board.

This could isolate #Israel in a revived #JCPOA.
Some in #Vienna appear to want to isolate #Israel. But officials in #Gulf/#GCC face a difficult choice. They have to weigh if a compromise on #JCPOA and weakening Israel's position will resolve the problem of #Iran's malign activities? Or will it be a temporary solution?
The #US is directly engaging #GCC on #JCPOA, while FM #Zarif engages #SaudiArabia through #Qatar and #Iraq.

If the #Gulf comes aboard, #Israel and #Republicans will be effectively sidelined.

Violence is rampant in Israel's Arab communities

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu courted the Arab minority in the election campaign.
Above all, it wants one thing from the government: that it finally do something about violence and crime in its communities.

At the center of the dispute are two of the largest and most respected families in Kabul: the Rayans of Mayor Salih Rayan and the Akris of school principal Khalil Akri.

In 1920, the "Nabi Musa" celebrations took place on April 4, coinciding with #Passover and the Greek Orthodox #Easter.
Amin al-Husseini, who was then at the beginning of his career, and Araf al-Araf stirred up the celebrating crowd with enthusiastic hate speech that day.

As a result, after the traditional prayer at the end of the holiday, the incited #Arab crowd marched from the mosque in the Judean Desert, 20 kilometers from #Jerusalem, to the homes of the #Jews in Old Jerusalem, shouting "Adbah al-Yehud" (Slaughter the Jews).

And a call that later turned out to be correct - "a-Daula Mana" ("The (British) government is with us").
The #Arab crowd shouted "Independence Independence" & sang: "#Palestine is our land - the #Jews are our dogs." During all this time, #Arab

2/ 🎢 What looks glamorous now with an upcoming bell ringing (virtually or not), was definitely a 9 year roller coaster: we went from ecstasy to confusion, from backstabbing to vindication - all within days. I will talk about how we made it through & what's #Chapter2 #Startup
3/ 🚨How many times were we close to sinking?
A lot. Some stories are mind boggling. I will get to that thread one day. Most of the times we came out strong, but a few times, It was really rough. We only made it because we believed in each other.

Today, #Israel🇮🇱 has more #Arab allies than #Turkey🇹🇷 or #Iran🇮🇷. Premature to write off moderate Arabs. That could be what #Obama administration wanted by supporting extremist takeover in Middle East. The opposite has happened. Now there is a push back. Israel & Arabs favor it.
Erdogan's charisma, Islamist allies, & Turkey's soft power make him a key player. Iran's expansionism is based on weaponizing non-Iranian Shia communities. Both examples represent forms of religious extremism. Israel & Gulf offer a new model for the future of the Middle East.
#Turkey is a #NATO ally, a leading #Muslim success story as long as it steers clear of extremism. Half of #Iran cabinet are #US graduates, but it's model is not attractive in the Middle East, promoted by shady money and guns. A third model is presented by #AbrahamAccords.

Destabilization by #Israel+#SaudiArabia+#UAE in the Middle East is equal to the destabilization by #Iran. Is it?

I listened to @PeterBeinart on @FareedZakaria's show. He used this contrast to justify rejecting the idea of a #JCPOA rethink to include Iran's malign activities. /1
Are #Israel #KSA #UAE destabilizing the Middle East equally to or more than #Iran? This juxtaposition is used by Iran govt and sympathizers who suggest Tehran's wide network of proxies & operations in the region is not unique. Rather, it's normal. /2
Keeping #JCPOA intact is a legitimate goal but not on the basis of a fallacy. Moral and political equivalency that @PeterBeinart suggested [b/w #KSA/#Israel/#UAE and #Iran] is worth discussing. In short bursts, just key points, for the sake of informing. /3

Arab Americans like Aliya Ogdie Hassen (@saladinahmed 's great grandmother) believed that Muslim unity was necessary for self-determination and human rights. Hassen was the liaison between Malcolm X and the Federation of Islamic Associations.

The presence of the #terrorist & intelligence arm of #QudsForce on Turkish soil. How #Turkey enables Iranians to operate as a central base country, for the logistical & operational operation of QF & #Iranian intelligence vis-à-vis target countries in Europe & the Middle East.
1
Iranian intelligence sees it as #Iran's "operational backyard" vis-à-vis the Middle East and Europe, as #Turkey has a number of clear advantages, including:
- proximity to Iran and relatively easy mobility of operatinal it and through it (air and land)
2
- Iranian citizens do not need a visa to enter the country
- This geographical location central and attractive holding secret meetings with #terrorist organizations throughout the world (Middle East, Europe, South East Asia)

This week, radical left-wing organizations & media publicized that #IDF held drills “in Palestinian villages” in Training Ground 918 & forced “local residents out of their homes”. Time to talk some facts.
THREAD
1. Training Ground 918 in the South Hebron Hills was declared a firing zone by the IDF in the early ‘80s.

2. It’s a desert area, and like all other training grounds, was empty – besides sometimes functioning as grounds for grazing.
3. Training Ground 918 has served various IDF units over the years – including infantry, artillery, & Air Force.

4. In 2000, local Arabs began to take over the area through mass illegal construction.

This can get very interesting very fast .
@mystiquememoir @KesariDhwaj @desertfox61I @cvkrishnan @rathorekaran17
They're the same arming either side is arming them both .
Two strategic connotations here
1) Involvement of #SaudiArabia as the maternal cousins of the #UAE rulers . This will help them against #Iran & #Pakistan both .
2) Any #Baloch state would sit astride the Persian Gulf & presumably be a factor in all shipping through it .

The 3rd #Caliph was Usman ibn Affan (644–656 A.D.). Usman wanted to conquer #Sindh. He appointed Abdullah to Iraq & commanded him to send an agent to gather info about Hind & Sindh. 1/13
Abdullah deputed Hakim to acquire the desired info. Hakim reported that, “Its water is dark; its fruit is bitter and poisonous; its land is stony and its earth is selfish. A small army will soon be annihilated there and a large army will soon die of hunger.” 2/13
The 1st invasion of Sindh by land was carried out in 660 A.D. This expedition included many nobles & chiefs, & which was led by Haras, proceeded towards the mountainous region of Kikan or Kikanan unhindered. 3/13
