Just Read a very nice article, whilst onboard #Emirates for a short trip to #Dubai about the 3 ships which were nearby when the #Titanic sunk and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare ..

A quick reading is recommended..


It was 7 miles away from Titanic, but since the crew had been hunting seals illegally &didn't want to be caught,they turned away from the Titanic

This ship represents those of us who are so busy in our own sin &lives that we can't recognize when someone else is in need

This ship was only 14 miles away from the Titanic,but because the conditions weren't favorable & it was dark,the crew convinced themselves that nothing was happening

This ship represents those of us who say I can't do anything now & wait until conditions r perfect

The last few days of #US military build up make a lot of sense now. The killing of #Iran Quds Force commander Suleimani cannot be overstated as an escalatory event, even if US will have intended it as ultimate show of force.
Suleimani was the most visible face of Iran’s fight against #IslamicState and US in the region. A huge loss of knowledge and expertise for IRGC and humiliating for #Khamenei after his tweet taunting #Trump. The question now must be what an Iranian response will be.
Iran can not afford not to respond to this level of attack, but does not necessarily have to respond immediately. They will understand how vulnerable Trump is going into the electoral period. US military and energy assets across #Iraq are at high risk of rocket and mortar attack.

#Saudi #MBS front led by charlatan @alishihabi is shutting. It should have been investigated by @USTreasury for violations @ChrisMurphyCT
The press should ask Shihsbi, a bankrupted businessman who wasted hi father’s money in failed #Dubai investments.He should also be asked about his connection to #Saud AlQahtani who was calling him with orders incl publicly shaming his own actress daughter for steamy scene
#Saudi front @ArabiaFdn closed because it ls Saudi funding was about to be exposed & ita direct line from #MBS . No donors or board decision was behind it.

#UPDATE: After exhaustive search, I believe that the tanker likely hijacked by #Iran over the weekend was owned/chartered by KB&R Inc., a #US military defense contractor and petroleum engineering company with headquarters in #Dubai, the home port of the ship.
No company named KRB as listed in the article operates out of Dubai, but KB&R (since the name is an agglomeration of three names, the letters can be switched) has two offices in downtown Dubai.
KB&R also has a history of subcontracting tankers for the US military, which matches up with the detail that it was chartered by KB&R through an Iraqi company.

Last week, Pope Francis & grand imam of al-Azhar signed a “historic pledge of fraternity”in the #UAE. In light of misogyny they oversee, the patriarchs in robes can kiss & hold hands & pledge love to the “fraternity”: they are dangerous to women & children…
- Vatican & al-Azhar prohibit ordination of women
- Priests rape & sexually abuse nuns & children
- Al-Azhar is furious #Tunisia wants to make inheritance equal btwn men & women
- Ruler of #Dubai has forcibly repatriated 2 of his daughters after escape & holds them vs their will Pope Francis & grand Imam of Azhar kissingPope Francis with an official of UAE
Why are the pledges these men sign presented to us as great achievements to celebrate? For whose benefit arevthose pledges? The rot of misogyny and abuse these men oversee must not be camouflaged by “pledges of fraternity.”

“There is a lot of interest in fleeing #Saudi women at the moment but the situation for #Emirati and other women in the #Gulf is often just as bad.” As I often asked about Rahaf’s story: what are these countries doing to women that makes them seek asylum?…
“women remain second class citizens in the #UAE, where the concept of “male guardianship,” incorporated in UAE law,” @hrw…
#UAE abuses are too often overlooked because of the flashy facade and glitz of #Dubai and because it is not as big as or as influential as regional behemoth #Saudi Arabia. Look closer and pay attention.

Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum - daughter of the ruler of #Dubai - vanished in February, apparently attempting to escape the #UAE. This is the story of the tape she left behind.…
The story of the Emirati princess who tried to escape twice but was forcibly repatriated, whose sister tried to escape and was also forcibly repatriated, is horrific. And makes you ask: how much worse for ordinary women in the #UAE?
It is a horrific story and one which must also force questions about #Dubai and its glitzy image: “Latifa says her role as a PR coup for modern Dubai – she was fond of skydiving, which was reported as a sign of her freedom – is a sham.” #UAE

“I’ve been mistreated & oppressed all of my life...Women are treated like subhumans. My father...can’t continue to do what he’s been doing to us all” Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum,daughter of #Dubai ruler.Imagine how much worse for ordinary women…
Latifa is 2nd of Sheikh’s daughters to try to flee life of caged luxury &then vanish after reports of recapture.Her older sister,Shamsa,was seized on streets of Cambridge after fleeing family’s Surrey estate in 2000,in apparent abduction never fully investigated by British police
Latifa‘s bid to escape & her repatriation w/assistance of foreign govt reminds me of #Saudi Dina Ali Lasloum who tried to escape forced marriage but was detained at Manila airport until uncles came, beat her up, dragged her onto plane home w/limbs bound…

Thread 👇triggered many questions:

1-How can Syrian leadership resume relations with #Saudi after its support of the Opp?

2-What about #Iran and will Tehran feel betrayed?

3-What about #Russia and how might this potential shift impact Turkish/Russian relations?

Answers ==>
2-On #Saudi : No question that Riyadh/Damascus rapprochement is difficult to foresee. Note that this shift is being led #UAE and not Saudi. Riyadh is expected to follow and yes, reluctantly. Damascus is just as easy about this given Saudi’s early support of the Opp. BUT ==>
3-When discussing Riyadh/Damascus, it’s critical to think about Qatari/Saudi schism. If forced to choose, who should Damascus side with? Answer: #Saudi . Why? #Qatar is ardent supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood (enemy of both Damascus & Riyadh). Doha is also still supporting Opp
