The UN #DurbanIV conference is a cesspool of discriminatory, anti-Israel propaganda.

“Zionism=Racism" is a vicious slander against the Jewish state and its supporters.

America and many allies stand proudly with Israel in boycotting this despicable conference.
Thank you @POTUS and @SecBlinken @StateDept for refusing to participate in the anti-Israel #DurbanIV conference.

Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains.
These are the protests against tyranny in #Netherlands 🇳🇱

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.
.
.
.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

#Croatia|n 🇭🇷 president Zoran Milanovic @Ured_PRH returns war decorations to notorious war criminal and terrorist Branimir Glavas. With this, he invalidated former President Ivo Josipovic's decision on the stripping of #Glavas war medals. ⤵️
In late November 2019, Glavas, who was still standing trial for war crimes, supported with his signature Milanovic’s presidential candidacy in #Osijek. ⤵️
Later that day, Milanovic, who was the Social Democratic Party #SDP candidate for the #Croatia|n 🇭🇷 president, said that he distanced himself from the support expressed for his presidential bid by Branimir Glavas since he is not his "company". ⤵️

No one came to the aid of #Serbs, #Jews, and
#Roma who suffered so mightily under #AntePavelic´’s reign in the alleged Independent
State of #Croatia. By the end of the
#WWII, Pavelic´ and the #Ustaše had murdered
between 330,000 and 390,000 Serbs...

Policy toward the atrocities was dictated by the need to limit ethnic tension
between #SerbianAmericans and #CroatianAmericans.
The #American government was
concerned that the crisis in #Croatia had the potential to foster violence in the #UnitedStates that would weaken the domestic war effort, especially in heavy industry, where
#Yugoslav immigrants tended to work.

Dalmatia through history.
Part III:

In previous 2 threads you could have read:
1) about the therm Dalmatia and what it meant in the time of creation
2) what was left of her after crash of Roman authority and arrival of Slavs

⬇️
In this "sequel" we will see how Dalmatia, from the scattered cities and islands, has become what we consider Dalmatia today.

I will also explain where the historical pretensions of the Italians to Dalmatia came from.

Let's go in order.
⬇️
Everything we do and don't know about Dalmatia in the period of 2 centuries after the arrival of the Slavs, ie the end of organized Roman rule and written news about the events in it can be underlined and summarized by the provisions of the Peace treaty in Aachen, signed in 812.

On April 13, 1221 pope Honorius III wrote to citizens of #Split inviting them to fight against pirates of #Omiš and that he sends them his legate Akoncius as suport in organisation of fight vs. pirates and heretics.
⬇️
#Omiš then was managad by count Malduk and bis brothers, members of noble family #Kačić, one of 12 legendary Croatian noble families.

Citizens of Omiš had centuries long tradition of piracy and in those times it was not only local problem.
⬇️
Before that they plundered some Crusaders carrying supplies for Middle East and that caused fierce reaction from all sides.

Border of #Omiš county towards #Split and #Klis county was river #Žrnovnica then (m.d. city of Stobreč).

On April 12, 1304 we have recorded presence of Mathew (emissary of Serbian king Stephen Uroš II Milutin) in #Dubrovnik passing by on a meeting with ban of #Croatia and #Bosnia and master of #Hum Paul I of family #Šubić for the interests of his realm ("na rabotu kraljevstva mi"). Image
Earlier that same month king Milutin wrote to Dubrovnik asking them to prepare a vessel for his emissary and to transport him to the city of #Skradin, where the seat of ban Paul was.
⬇️
So, we know for a fact that there was a meeting between Croatian ban Paul and emissary of Serbian king Milutin at that time.

Unfortunately, sources don't discover us their true reason and subject.

#Dalmatia through history.
Part II: How Dalmatia became #Croatia

In Part I (👇🏿) you could find out how the term Dalmatia originated and what it represented at the time of its origin (after 9 AD).

Now let's move on further.⬇️
The province of Dalmatia was large. It included the territories of modern states:
- Croatia
- Bosnia and Herzegovina (without Sava valley)
- Montenegro and
- (western) Serbia.

Well, how did we come from THAT Dalmatia to what we know today under the term Dalmatia? ⬇️ Image
The Romans ruled this area continuously for 411 years (until 480).

In those 400 years or so, there have been several territorial reorganizations and changes in borders, we have no room to list them all. But one was crucial... ⬇️ Image

#EU #Brussels #Coronavirus #vaccine

A number of EU countries have asked Brussels to help the neighboring countries to the east with vaccination. The foreign ministers of 13 eastern and northern member states wrote to the EU Commission to this effect.
"We think that our borders will not be safe if we do not extend our support to our direct neighbors," declared the government representatives of #Bulgaria, #Croatia, the #CzechRepublic, #Denmark, #Estonia, #Finland, #Hungary, #Latvia, #Lithuania,
#Poland, #Romania, #Slovakia and #Sweden. Access to vaccines must be made easier for the eastern partners. The EU is already supporting non-member states in the Balkans as part of its vaccination strategy. 70 million euros from the EU budget are available for this.
