In #india bigoted #halalanomics is not questioned by pseudo #secular jokers.

#halalonomics is 100 % pure communal where muslim say I will eat only #halal product. Kaffirs cant do #halal slaughter. Only muslims can and by reading kalma and direction of animal towards kabbah (1)
This #halalanomics business is going on from a long time and no supreme court ,any ngo gang speaks .

@nntaleb has called this halal business as intolerance of minority .

Where majority is sleeping and dont realise what is happening.

Goi org like air india also seels only halal
Many private chains like KFC, McDonald's only sell halal chicken ,bcz majority dont cares .

This #halalanomics is now in veg products also.

To export in #gcc u need halal certification.

Now chips are halal and many things .

Where is equality.

A first reaction to the @EU_Commission announcement of the #recoveryfund #mff and other aspects of the Euro 750 billion #fiscalstimulus package to be launched by @vonderleyen today ...

A twitter #thread

"it is too little, it is too late and it may end up being watered down"
My initial reaction and response to the Franco-German #recoveryfund proposal was captured here on @POLITICOEurope and remains largely true ...…

This is not a macro economic significant sum
Nor is it a step towards a #fiscalunion or even just #eurobonds
According to @Reuters #Italy will get Euro 82 billion in grants and euro 91 billion in loans. #Spain will get euro 77 billion in grants and 63 billion in loans. Italian and Spanish GDP in 2019 was Euro 2,000 billion and Euro 1,400 billion and may fall by euro 300/200 billion 2020

@Qatargas will choose partners for its massive #LNG expansion by year-end & its not unlikely #Qatar will choose an Asian NOC, such as China's CNPC or CNOOC, as a core partner. Why? Well its never just about economics in the Gulf #oil and #gas (thread) #OOTT #ONGT
Choosing an Asian equity parter would reflect how #LNG is more than just an export for Qatar, it's a tool for the small #GCC nation, currently embargoed by its neighbors, to create global interdependencies
This makes even more sense given the difficulty #Qatar is having resigning long-term contracts amidst its marriage to oil-indexation. Bringing on end-users as equity partners is the perfect solution here. As the chart shows, the scale of Qatar's uncontracted position is massive

THREAD—#Israel & UAE thaw

🇦🇪’s Itehad Airways’ first flight 2 🇮🇱 created a stir in ME & even finding traction in Turkey & 🇵🇰 w/ trolls running #boycottUAE trends.

But many fails 2 understand geo-political motives of warming ties of #GCC w/ 🇮🇱.

Here is how it prompted ?
(a) Antipathy towards Iran is “cliched” convergence but 🇦🇪 & 🇸🇦 feel shaky when

(b) Iran's #IRGC is upping the ante:

(i) 🇮🇷 pushes 2 populate UAE islands occupied by Tehran;
(ii) succeeds 2 make look US forces vulnerable by “harassment”;
(iii) assertively claiming....2/
....."ownership" of the Gulf.
(iv) making new claims, re Bahrain & Kuwait;
(v) US retrenched it’s leadership when 🇮🇷 sponsored an attack on KSA’s installation.

2 big obstacles 4 GCC 2 normalise ties w/ #Israel were:
(A) ground swell public opinion &
(B) Palestinian cause

At an unprecedented time of crisis that one hopes will never recur, when all other taboos 1) state aid 2) open borders 3) GCC declaring ECB / ECJ decisions illegal 4) unprecedented domestic aid schemes etc have been broken, this was a time to break the real taboo on fiscal union
And that opportunity has now been missed. The taboo that has been broken is a small one that is at best incremental (aid to poorer MS already happens and so does EC/EU borrowing) when what was needed was the taboo of fiscal union to be broken, even if the magnitude were modest
I don’t think Euro 500 billion spread over 3-4 years is a “huge” sum given magnitude of what is happening. Given limits on asymmetry of capital key vs. grant key it’s unlikely to be more than 2% of gdp. Add constraints on asymmetry of QE imposed by @BVerfG Italy may be worse off

Coming late to the story but I can’t be the ONLY one thinking the “Hamiltonian” “Game-Changing” [insert your superlative here] Franco-German #RecoveryFund proposal is in fact neither “a Hamilton moment” nor Game-Changing nor, in fact, even adequate ... “Much Ado About Not Much”
It only offers a modest (and temporary) increase in the spending ceiling of the European Commission budget 4 a limited period of time to borrow and and transfer an additional euro 500 billion over 3-4 years. As a % of EU GDP it’s less than 1% of GDP/ year so macro insignificant
There are limits to how asymmetric the grants can be with no country likely to get more than twice its share so 2% of GDP or so. Is that helpful to a country like Spain of Italy? Yes! Is that game changing? Not at all. In economies contracting by 10%-20% its a palliative at best

Devastating, incredibly prophetic quotes from the dissenting opinion in the #GCC 2014 ruling on #OMT (in German).

tldr in English: do *not* fall for the line that the German constitution obliged the #BVerfG to rule as it did.

Rather there has been a persistent effort over an extended to open up the legal space to make the recent ruling possible.

Let me unoffically translate one long sentence (written, to repeat, in 2014) which encapsulates what is problematic about last week's ruling:

"That a few independent German judges, basing themselves on the German interpretation of the democracy principle and on the limits this and our interpretation of A123ff TFEU set on the legitimate powers of the independent ECB, take a decision with incalculably far-reaching...

#Saudi announced a new but limited 3-month amnesty for migrants overstaying their visa from:

▶️Ethiopia 🇪🇹
▶️Somalia 🇸🇴
▶️Nigeria 🇳🇬
▶️Chad 🇹🇩
▶️Eritrea 🇪🇷

The only option for those who want to avail is to self-deport without incurring any penalties (fees or jail time)
Amnesty also covers regular migrants who accumulated traffic ticket fees. No migrant can leave the country with a final exit visa without paying those fees.

Beneficiary of the amnesty won't be blacklisted but if they want to return, they'll have to repay any outstanding fees.
Any amnesty in any way, shape or form is indicative of a failure of the migration and labor policies, specifically the #Kafala system.

There are a lot inaccuracies in here: the reason for contract soldiering in the #Gulf #GCC is NOT building a force that is more dispensable, or willing to take up arms against citizens - the primary reason is lack of indigenous capacity…
Staffing a military with just 300,000 nationals in #Qatar or 1,300,000 in the #UAE is impossible - plus the parallel militaries (Emiri Guard, Presidential Guard, National Guard) there to protect the state are always staffed with nationals NOT foreigners
The use of contracted mercenaries not integrated into the chain of command of the armed forces and not wearing uniform such as in the #UAE is a different story and very much an exception

In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
#Trump turning the screws on #India on trade tariffs, forcing end to oil import from #Iran & forcing India to buy from #USA/#KSA/#GCC, talking to #Pakistan on #Afghanistan, & restricting immigration from India, are things that worry #NewDelhi deeply. Watching #ImranKhan in....

#China has committed $600 billion 10 yr trade deal with #Iran under #OBOR.

#India buys its oil from Iran despite the American sanctions. India is the second biggest market to sell oil to for Iran.

#GCC has declared Iran the number one enemy of itself. GCC wants to pull India
Towards itself. It will kill 2 birds with one stone. 1. It will sell oil to India this damaging Iranian economy. 2. It will force India to distance itself from Iran.

If Iranian economy sinks further 3 parties win.


America because it makes
China fail in Iran. GCC because Iran is its self declared enemy. India because it gains GCC support and American support indirectly for breaking ties with Iran and damaging China indirectly.

Of course there will be an AWARD of the highest order for Modi by UAE

Case closed.

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.
