#Erdogan has won the elections in #Turkey.

#Indian #liberals are dismayed because Erdogan is trying to #Islamize Turkey.

But this is a decision of the people of Turkey.

Erdogan has won through a democratic, free and fair election.

This is what the people of Turkey want.

If you claim to love #Democracy, that is, the will of the people, then you should be happy with this result.

Erdogan is a #Democrat. He is not #Liberal. He converted the #HagiaSophia into a mosque.

But #Democracy has NOTHING TO DO with #Liberalism, and vice versa.

#Ataturk was a #Liberal in every sense of the word. He abolished the #Caliphate, closed down #Madarsa s, changed the language of the country from #Arabic to #Turkish, banned the #Fez cap, banned the #Sufi and #Dervish orders, and promoted scientific thinking.

19Sept 634 AD, Khalid Bin Walid Conquered #Damascus from Byzantine Empire. The legendary General #KhalidBinWalid took one of the biggest risks of his life to get historic city which later rose as the Capital of #Umayyad Muslim #Caliphate & became known as Urus-al-Bilad.
Fall of Damascus & The Love Story.
On Aug 21, 634, Siege of Damascus began. Khalid RA's Army encircled the city even without proper siege machinery, denying it supplies until the Byzantines capitulated on 19Sept. Bt Did u know the Story is told with a Romantic angle in Urdu Lit.
Damishq had 6 gates So Accordingly, Khalid RA divided his army into 6 parts
Gate of Thomas: Shurahbil
Jabiya Gate: Abu Ubaidah
Gate of Faradis: Amr
Keisan Gate: Yazid Bin Sufyan
Small Gate: Yazid Bin Sufyan
Eastern Gate: Rafay bin Umayr

1/13 Dear Pakistanis; why do you care about a treaty that Turkey signed 100 years ago? The Treaty of Lausanne has no expiration date. The caliphate won't be re-established in 2023. This is a conspiracy theory that circulates within Islamic groups in Turkey.
#Pakistan #Caliphate
2/13 According to this theory, Turkey is an oil and natural gas rich country but can’t surface its natural resources due to restrictions implemented as a result of Lausanne. Of course, none of this will actually happen. The Treaty of Lausanne has no secret expiration clause.+
3/13 After defeating the Ottoman Empire in World War I; Britain, France, Italy and Greece divided Anatolia, occupied the territory that is now Turkey. However, Kemal Ataturk reorganized the remnants of the Ottoman army and thwarted this attempted division through shrewd+

1/19 I regret that my Epoch Times investigation isn't finished yet & I'm going fast as I can

With that said, this #thread is another teaser & I'm giving it early release because of its implication to the #UighurGenocide vote in #CDNpoli today & how MPs have been sorely misled
2/19 #CDNpoli #Uyghur #UighurGenocide

First off, the Conservative party pressure to force a vote in Canada is due to a campaign concocted by Steve Bannon, to squeak through his agenda (continuing Trump's agenda) to force a war with #China before Prez Biden can get up to speed
3/19 #UighurGenocide

They're capitalizing on right-wing ownership of most #CDNmedia to disinform #CDNpoli about the #Uyghur issue, without the threat of being fact checked

Our dystopian news climate is being used to manipulate @JustinTrudeau into painting @POTUS into a corner

1) Let’s talk about #Nakhichevan - a lost homeland. ImageImageImageImage
2) The the name "Nakhichevan" in #Armenian literally means "the place of first descent", a Biblical reference to the descent of Noah's Ark on the adjacent Mount #Ararat. Armenian tradition says that Nakhichevan was founded by Noah. Image
3) The region was at the center of the ancient Kingdom of #Armenia (858 BC-428 CE). During the invasion by Sassanid #Persian Shah Shapur II (r. 309-379) he removed 2,000 Armenian and 16,000 #Jewish families from #Nakhichevan (360-370 CE). ImageImage

Once at afterwork drinks with coworkers, we were all going around saying our fav karaoke song. I called Andy Mills’s song “hipster” - he then took his beer and poured it over my head in front of everyone. 1/5
I’m thankful I only endured sexism and bullying, and not sexual harassment from Andy Mills. I’m so sorry to anyone who had to deal with any of it. 2/5
I don’t know firsthand what he’s been up to recently, but I know that hearing Andy on #TheDaily right after taking 0 responsibility for his reporting failure in #Caliphate shows a continued lack of accountability. 3/5

1/ Here’s a unique coin I love to show my students @UniofOxford. A fascinating window into the early history of #Islam in #Iran. Minted in Sistan, ca. 691-2. One side portrays the #Sasanian king of kings; the other has the Islamic profession of faith (the shahada) but in Pahlavi!
2/ Pahlavi (otherwise known as #Zoroastrian Middle #Persian) was the language of the #Sassanian kings and the #Zoroastrian clergy. It remained a prestige language in #Iran even after the Islamic conquest
3/ What makes the coin so unique is that it translates the shahada into an essentially #Zoroastrian idiom: “yazd-ēw bē ōy any yazd nēst mahmat paygāmbar ī yazd” (There is one God, without any other, #Muhammad is the #Prophet of God)

@BristolUni’s @DrDPrabhat uses the recent case of #ShamimaBegum to illustrate how statelessness is the foremost concern when the deprivation of citizenship is used for #counterterrorism purposes #ICCTConf Image
Next up @lauravanwaas, cofounder of @institute_si, explains how denial of nationality is used as a way to strip people or communities of rights - and how it is one of the most challenging human rights issues we face today. #ICCTConf Image

BREAKING - #ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi revealed in-person on new #ISIS video post-#Caliphate defeat in #Syria-#Iraq.

He appears in fine health, despite reports of severe injury.
I'm honestly unconvinced that this "diminished" point translates over to #ISIS & its existing/possible support base.

To me, this seems like a Western-centric point from which to analyze a video containing #Baghdadi's 2nd appearance in ~5yrs - a big deal.

#pt: For #ISIS, the struggle is theologically infinite - it isn't "defeated" or "prevented" by territorial losses.

e.g. #Trump's #Syria withdrawal announcement in #Dec '18 would have been perceived as a sign of eventual victory.

- #Baghdadi's video = fuel, not sign of weakness.

The #SDF's proclamation of victory today against #ISIS's territorial Caliphate is a momentous occasion worthy of genuine celebration.

What was once a territory the size of the UK is now zero. That's no small accomplishment.

The #SDF lost 11,000 killed & 21,000 wounded.
#pt: After #ISIS's capture of #Mosul, its march south in #Iraq, expansion in #Syria & genocidal threats against #Yazidis in #Sinjar & #Kurds in #Kobani, the US mobilized the largest military coalition in modern history; 79 members.

Due in large part of @brett_mcgurk's hard work.
@brett_mcgurk #pt: As the #SDF has made clear, however, the counter-#ISIS mission must now shift to a new mission - the struggle is far from over.

The now-completed "clear" phase was the easy bit; the "hold" & "build" represents the huge challenge ahead, but our commitment is now in question.

1. Hello everyone, yesterday Ch 6 of the #Caliphate podcast went live, detailing how we fact-checked Abu Huzayfah's story. At least 15 @nytimes reporters, stringers and translators worked to bring you that one episode. Follow along for the back story:…
2. By now, you've heard the detailed account of murder by one Canadian member of ISIS. As many of you have asked, why in the world would this young man admit to such crimes in an interview with the @nytimes? I'm finally able to reveal that we began speaking to him 1.5 yrs ago
3. @AndyMillsNYT & I first learned of Abu Huzayfah in November 2016. He had left Syria over a year before that & had successfully traveled back and forth to Canada and his grandparent's home in Pakistan. Because no one stopped him at the airport, he assumed he was in the clear

1. Hello everyone, Chapter 2 of #Caliphate is now up on iTunes, Spotify etc. In this episode, we explore the ideas - boiled down to three religious concepts- that are used to lure potential recruits to ISIS.…
2. I’d spoken to numerous ISIS recruits and had a general sense of how the recruitment worked. But it wasn’t until I sat down with former al-Qaeda recruiter @_JesseMorton that it began to make sense. After being released from jail, Jesse has worked to deradicalize others.
3. Read about Jesse’s journey out of extremism below:…
