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.

Ενδιαφέρουσα η συνάντηση Σίσι-Μπένετ, η πρώτη σε επίπεδο ηγεσίας μεταξύ #Egypt και #Israel μέσα σε μια δεκαετία και μετά τα γεγονότα του 2011 αλλά και τα Abraham Accords.

Ακολουθεί thread για το τι σηματοδοτεί για #Greece & #Cyprus
σε πρώτη ανάλυση η συνάντηση έρχεται να υπενθυμίσει την βασική αρχιτεκτονική ασφάλειας στην Μέση Ανατολή η οποία στηρίζεται στις υγιείς διμερείς σχέσεις Καίρου-Τελ Αβίβ μετά το Καμπ Ντέιβιντ οι οποίες σε μια δεκαετία πέρασαν από σημαντικά ορόσημα την περίοδο 2011-2014
το Τελ Αβίβ ξεπέρασε τους ενδοιασμούς Νετανιάχου για μια τέτοια συνάντηση η οποία πάντα δημιουργεί εκατέρωθεν κριτική παρά την ενεργό στήριξη, κυρίως σε οικονομικό επίπεδο, του Μπίμπι προς τον Σίσι την διετία 2014-2016

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.
Get off the trains 🇮🇱

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!

Come with me for a journey through the world of hypocritical, antisemitic, 'human rights' activism:

Thread 1/9
The world can sit by as #Afghanistan is lost to the #Taliban and millions of women and young girls have their future stolen from them - and the streets of Europe are empty of protests and demonstrations. 2/9
And our streets stay silent as nations like #Syria and #Turkey massacre #Kurds 3/9

① The #EUreferendum was undemocratic. Many people directly affected were denied a vote.

Citizens living in the UK from over 70 nations could vote in the EU referendum, but most citizens living here from the rest of the #EU could not.
② Including Britain, 55 countries across the world are members of the #Commonwealth, and all citizens from those countries resident with ‘leave-to-remain’ in the UK were granted a vote the #EUreferendum.

They included citizens living here from Australia, Canada, Ghana, India..
③ Just two #EU countries are members of the #Commonwealth, #Malta and #Cyprus, and citizens from those countries resident in the UK were able to vote in the #EUreferendum.

1⃣MYTHS circulate by Turks about certain incidents that took place during the 1956-1958 & 1962-1964 intercommunal strife. The FACTS (mainly from Turkish sources & British archives) show that Turks were not victims of Greek violence but the protagonists
Myth-A❌: On June 7, 1958, Greek Cypriots threw a bomb at the Information Bureau of the Turkish Consulate.
Fact-A✅: A Turkish Cypriot were responsible for the bomb in order to provoke riots against the Greek Cypriots. Image
3⃣ On the night of the 7th June 1958, there was an explosion at the Information Bureau of the Turkish Consulate. A crowd of Turkish Cypriot youths had already gathered there, and they were swearing vengeance against the Greeks.

1-I was in searching of the truth behind the #Israeli spy #NSO software #Pegasus. I made contact with Ex Israeli Intelligence Service officials to find out the fact.
They informed me the information that really shocked me. The same powers were behind the propaganda news
2- Who were behind the propaganda news of Jamal Khashoggi against the KSA. Qatar & Turkey are behind spreading the fake news about NSO’s security software Pegasus. Indeed, the software exists but it’s a false information that NSO targeted the journalists and government officials.
3- #NSO software #Pegasus never hacked anyone nor they enlisted any target & neither NSO sold the software to any private or security organisation but Governments. It doesn’t work like this. In this case, NSO can’t be blamed but such states who misused the software.

‘They shot the men.
My friend’s wife said ‘Why should I live without my husband?’
A soldier shot her in the head.

After ferocious blowback in Austria, the government has this morning backtracked on its refusal to sign yesterday's statement condemning Hungary's anti-LGBT law.

(In fact that brings total signatories to 15, Italian government also changed its mind last night)
And now Greece as well.

All eyes on Cyprus and Malta.…
Here is the updated map of which EU countries have signed the statement condemning #Hungary's anti-LGBT law and asking the Commission to take legal action against Budapest to stop it.

A team of NGO representatives, lawyers and researchers investigated allegations of Turkey's intervention in the elections for the #Turkish Cypriot leader in 2020. Some shocking revelations by @MustafaAkinci_1, @CGurcag, @DenktasSerdar as well as a number of journalists. #cyprus
@MustafaAkinci_1 told the rapporteurs that a team from Turkish Intelligence Agency MIT directed the elections on behalf of Ersin Tatar, who won against Akinci. "Akinci won't win. We took every measure. Even if he wins, he won't be there for long" MIT team told a number of people.
Report: Turkey's ambassador in Nicosia told @MustafaAkinci_1: "You want federation. You want a different identity regarding Turkishness. You want the Turkish Cypriot identity. Turkey, with all its institutions wants a change here."

Thread. Last night I joined @business's @AsharqNews's program to discuss #Turkey's FM visit to #Greece and whether diplomatic overtures can be taken seriously without concrete actions to back it up. Segment begins 51 min on. In Arabic, so key points below…
1. Between 2009 and 2019, Turkey carried out 450 overhead flights over Greek territory. In 2020 alone, that number was over 400, showing a drastic escalation of provocations.
2. Turkey is currently transferring attack drones to its base in Northern Cyprus, upgraded Bayraktar-TB2s which have a range of over 100 miles, i.e. placing Greece, Egypt, Gaza and Israel in range. In 2019, this base began housing research drones.

Relentless waste of taxpayer's money, yesterdays sortie cost more than $2.5 million

WE pay for this (irrespective of which NATO country you belong to, it's ALL the same "protection racket")

It's why we have poverty and the homeless, yes it is

Why are the citizens forced into paying for ANY of this

With #Turkey visiting #Egypt to normalize relations and an upcoming FM Summit between #Cyprus, #Greece, #Israel and #UAE on security and economy it seems that we have two parallel geopolitical dynamics shaping.


A. Turkey is trying to disrupt the emergent block of cooperation in the #Eastmed (that includes extra-regional actors) and deny international power multipliers from #Greece and #Cyprus in particular. Plus it promotes a different regional status quo, including on maritime zones. >
B. In parallel, #Greece, #Cyprus, #Israel and #UAE are trying to set up a different mechanism that will not be restricted by the dynamics & monothematic character of #EMGF. [UAE are unable to enter EMGF due to Palestinian veto]. This will allow them to enhance cooperation in >>

Comments on #Turkey's policy in the #EastMed alongside colleague @JMJalel_H.

Elaborated thoughts in thread below, including about today's Greek-Turkish meeting/press conference>
#Turkey is currently following a two-fold strategy in the broader #EasternMediterranean. On the one hand it embarked, at least ostensibly, on an effort to normalize its relations with a number of regional countries including #Egypt, #Israel, #Greece, #France and the #UAE. >
Ankara expects that this will convince the #US and #EU that it adopted a more pro-western and constructive foreign policy orientation. Both the talks with #Greece and the developments in the #Cyprus process aim to appease the EU, advance Turkish-EU relations, and >>
