I'm glad you enjoyed my past thread on the ancient star & crescent. In the coming days, I hope to cover the star and crescent symbolism in the post-classical era. This thread will focus on the #Ottomans, but you might be surprised about its other users.

To recapitulate a bit, we might conclude that the star and crescent were extensively present in both #Byzantine and #Sassanid symbolism. The Sassanids saw it as the astral representation of Mithra and Anahita. Together with their dynasty, however, this symbolism declined.
The #Ummayads copied the Sassanid coins for a while to use as silver dirhams, like the two 7th century coins below. However, the symbolism of star and crescent were in no way meaningful, and were a mere reflection of the fading Sassanid existence in the new conquerors' coinage.

In the weeks following the hack, major narratives pushed by legacy press in the last two years have been exposed as state-friendly propaganda, including but not limited to: #Russiagate, the #Skripal poisoning, the smearing of #Corbyn, & attacks on the #Catalan independence mvt.
In April last year, Disobedient Media reported on Joseph #Mifsud’s ties to UK intelligence figures, and other connections suggesting British influence at the heart of the #TrumpRussiaCollusion narrative, concluding:

1) Cal analitzar els esdeveniments d'ahir a BCN des d'una òptica estratègica:
- Ens apropen a la República o ens hi allunyen?
- Ens fan avançar cap a la Rep o ens frenen?

Crec q la resposta és clara: ens apropen i ens fan avançar

Però també hem d'aprendre algunes lliçons

- Escenari 1: replegament i tornada a l'autonomia
- Escenari 2: intensificació del conflicte, intervenció d'Alemanya i referèndum
- Escenari 3: intensificació del conflicte, causa justa, i esclat popular que desbordi les estructures.

This is what Javier Pérez Royo, Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Seville, has to say about @jordialapreso's investiture.
The one and only requirement of the Spanish Constitution & of the Statute of Catalonia is for the proposed candidate to be an elected MP and not to have lost his/her right to vote & be voted through a final judicial sentence.
If this requirement is fulfilled, nobody can stop the proposed candidate from attending the session.
