Today is the first-ever #InternationalDayofConscience!

In this difficult time of #COVID19, it's more pressing than ever to promote a culture of peace with love & conscience. I hope everyone will try to do the right thing to champion diversity, inclusiveness & solidarity!
I strongly welcome the initiative by HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister, Kingdom of #Bahrain, to establish #InternationalDayofConscience & invite everyone to promote diversity & inclusivity. #COVID19 teaches us that only together can we keep the world safe.
Governments, private sector, civil society & the @UN all have a role in building the Culture of Peace with Love and Conscience, such as through education & public-awareness-raising activities. Access to good information is vital to the #COVID19 response.

1. Is the government of #Iran pushing citizens of #Iraq #Bahrain #KSA #UAE #Afghanistan out the way it is pushing #Pakistani #zaireen out?

2. Why is PM #ImranKhan's govt unable to engage with #Tehran or ask it to coordinate return of our citizens w/out risking #COVID19 spread?
@Office_AQPk #Pakistan is the only country in the world where the head of government has called for lifting sanctions on #Iran due to #COVID19 (despite evidence the sanctions & outbreak are not linked). But PM #ImranKhan is unable or won't discuss treatment of #Pakistani #zaireen with #Tehran

THREAD: @MIT researchers recently published a paper trying to explain how weather may or may not impact the spread of #COVID19. They updated some of the data just this week. Here's a summary of what they found.
SO FAR: thru March 22, 90% of #COVID19 cases recorded in places with a temperature range of 3-17ºC (37-63ºF). The researchers note that 83% of testing, however, has been done in non-tropical countries. That may skew data.
MORE: despite that, researchers point out that warmer places like #Australia, #Singapore, and #Bahrain have done extensive testing per capita, and those positive rates are lower than colder places like the #UnitedStates and #Europe.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

Here’s a thread of some of the cases that have come up in the last couple of years. Most of these cases are not resolved. Meaning workers have not received any or all of their dues and the employers have not been punished

A thread on #Bahrain that will focus on the revolution and that will hopefully bring attention to the #HumanRights violations by the monarchy.
Bahrain is a very small island nation that has a population of 1,2 million. The country is majority Shia but is ruled by a Salafi monarchy that is very close to Saudi Arabia. Because of the Shia majority the military targets their own people to keep the monarchy in power.
With the “Arab spring” the wave of revolution arrived in Bahrain in February 2011. But this didn’t go with the Salafi agenda of ousting anti Israeli leaders like Assad and Gaddafi. This revolution would hurt the Salafi,Israeli and US agenda in the region greatly.

#Bahrain, #Oman, and #UAE attended #TheDealOfTheCentury today amongst Americans and Israelis as a representation of the Arabs as Trump unrevealed the new #Israel & #Palestine maps, however there was no Palestinians. These 3 nations represent less than 1% of the Arab pop. (1)
Historically speaking, the Arab world was led by three civilizations - Egypt, the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine), and Iraq. These three nations make up most of the Arab population in the Middle East. (2)
An old Arabic expression says Egypt writes, Lebanon prints, and the Iraqis read. When these three nations led the region everyone lived in peace, including all minorities. (3)

#Iran escalating tension policy persists in the region!
The Islamic Republic, in the wake of its abnormal behavior, has deployed heavy_weapons to three Arab states in the #Middle_East ❗️The regime continues its malicious behavior in the neighboring countries.
A few months ago, a journalist who fled #Iran informed us: The Islamic Republic and in particular the #Revolutionary_Guards had sent heavy weaponries to several Arab countries to counter, what they call ‘American Threats’, & #US forces in the event of a possible Iran/US conflict
Months ago, Bahraini Foreign Minister, Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa confirmed the revelation, stating: “#Iran has secretly transferred weapons and explosives to #Bahrain. These weapons were enough to destroy half of the capital city #Manama❗️

Thread on oil & Gas in #Oman
1-With the passing of Sultan Qaboos on Friday and the choice of Sultan Haitham as the new leader of Oman, Oman #oil policy is expected to remain the same with the aim of increasing oil and gas production within OPEC+ framework
2-Oman producers about to 1 mb/d of crude & condensates. It is also an LNG exporter. Oman is among the very few countries in the world that announces its production figures at the end of every month. Kudos to Dr. Mohammed Al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas since 1997. @Mog_Oman
3-Dr Al Rumhi is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Chairman of @OmanLNG
He is also a media darling, especially at the JMMC & OPEC+ meetings. Just ask OPEC journalists.

Last night, troops were called to emergency duty. Later that night Sultan #Qaboos passed away.

Just after 4:00 am today, the official statement by Royal Diwan was announced.
The Defence Council convened directly, and called upon the Family (the al-Said's) Council to conven

..
Sometime between 7-8 am the Family Council decided to follow the late Sultan's will in naming the successor. And Haitham bin Tariq was sworn in.
(While the official announcement came approximately an hour later)
While the body of the late Sultan was arriving at the grand mosque, the second official statement by the Defence Council was broadcasted announcing the new Sultan's name.

Since 2017, #SaudiArabia, the United Arab Emirates, #Bahrain, and #Egypt have boycotted #Qatar due to its overwhelming support for terrorism. While this multilateral call to action should have raised alarm, the American public remained largely silent
effectively condoning #Qatar’s abuses — its overwhelming sponsorship of terrorism, and its #slave-like labor conditions that could kill 4,000 stadium workers before the Qatar-hosted #2022WorldCup’s opening whistle.

I decided to rewrite the thread on the Seal of Muḥammad to focus on the seal itself, and not the seal as part of the black shahāda flag, on which I have a proper thread. First of all, let's start with the actual design of the #seal on the #prophet's signet ring.
The most common and popular reading of the engraving today is "Allāh Rasūl Muḥammad", an #Arabic linguistic construction which places the subject after the object similar to the famous verse in the Qur'anic Fāṭir: 28: "Innamā yakhshā Allāha min ʿibādihi al-ʿulamāʾu."
Supporters of this theory argue that one should always position #God's divine name(s) in a superior position when writing a text, as did the prophet do when writing his letters. They state that only the top position befits the Divine Being, therefore starting with Allāh.

In this video, we want to take a look at some terrorist activities of #IRGC in the world.

Below is the history of IRGC.
#IRGC created by #Khomeini in 1979 is an #Iranian government agency tasked with defending the regime against internal and external threats. Espousing a radical ideology and a paranoid worldview.

A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

1/ This is big news. Twitter have finally suspended the Twitter account of Saud al Qahtani @saudq1978 , and 267 accounts originating in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt primarily targeting Qatar. They also suspended six Saudi Accounts linked to Saudi-state run media
@saudq1978 2/ I say finally because Saud Al Qahtani has long been accused of manipulating Twitter, and putting people's lives in danger using Twitter. I wrote a little about how he did that here > ijoc.org/index.php/ijoc… and here marcowenjones.wordpress.com/2017/08/23/sau…
3/ The 267 accounts may be bigger players, but bear in mind thousands of accounts are routinely suspended for disseminating propaganda without any public announcement. #Qatar #Saudi #Bahrain blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/c…

It's incredible how successful the Bahraini ruling family has been in co-opting Western academics and think tanks to produce a pro-regime narrative of Bahrain. Forums held on the rule of law are empty, but people in the West are fooled. #SEPAD
Presentation on the "genocidal violence" perpetrated against Bahraini Shia civilians in the 1920s. The state was complicit in these attacks. It's difficult to understand contemporary conflict without looking back at this history. Anti-Shia discourse goes back centuries. #SEPAD
"I had to chose between writing this or going back to my favourite place in the world." #Bahrain
