¿Cómo ha llegado a esto? 🤷‍♂️

Tras los históricos tratados de normalización y paz patrocinados por los EE.UU. entre Israel, los EÁU y Bahrein...

Turquía, #Irán, Qatar y los #HermanosMusulmanes lanzaron una campaña de denuncia y condena de esos acuerdos!

Irónicamente, #Qatar y #Turquía ya habían firmado acuerdos de paz con Israel.

Entonces, ¡¿qué pasó?!

🙉#HidenBiden is running on #Obama's record.
So lets review:

Barack Hussein Obama entered office with a net-worth of $250K and left, 8 years later worth over $1 billion

Media, oblivious to Barry's crimes, washes over #DementiaJoe & his 47 yrs of corruption. Where are His Taxes?
Obama was a disgrace to our great country.
Apologized to our enemies, gave #Iran cash & #russia uranium

More than doubled our national debt
Caused racial division

cost the lives of countless American soldiers, never fulfilling even one campaign promise

shadowproof.com/2016/12/09/oba…
Even Politico did a story of how Obama allowed #iran proxy #Hezbollah to smuggle drugs into the U.S.
The story was quietly swept away.

Can you imagine if @realDonaldTrump did that?

Thread.... My latest, "Breaking Hezbollah’s ‘Golden Rule’: An Inside Look at the Modus Operandi of #Hezbollah’s Islamic Jihad Organization," is now out @Perspectives_T @WashInstitute. Some highlights follow washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysi…
1. From 2012 to 2019, authorities in the US and Cyprus arrested 5 #Hezbollah IJO operatives. Law enforcement officials learned much about Hezbollah’s covert operations from these cases, including details being made public for the first time in this article.
2. Taken together, these cases-along with those involving operatives in Thailand & Peru-illustrate Hezbollah’s external operations modus operandi, senior handlers, communications techniques, travel patterns, terrorist training, & even limited info about operatives' pay scale

#Lebanon> #Hezbollah's Hassan #Nasrallah's hands are tied.

Alex Fishman explains how.

After the #BeirutBlast, ⅓ of the city's residents were left homeless.

If potential #Israel|i strikes would cause thousands of S. Leb. residents to move N., it'd further destabilize #Beirut.
#Israel, hence, assumes that the people in #Lebanon would unequivocally turn on #Hezbollah, which's already under immense public pressure due to the inner turmoil currently enveloping the nation.

Thus, Israel assesses that HZB has no wish to escalate the situation at the border.
Fishman notes that #Nasrallah is the 1 who determines the strategy for the so-called "equation" policy, while the decision of when to carry out a given attack from #Lebanon on #Israel|is is left to the discretion of #Hezbollah's local commanders.

#France #Lebanon
French President @EmmanuelMacron's visit to Lebanon on the 1st of September was scheduled before the harbour's explosion. France did not present a "roadmap" to Lebanon because it has limited influence over the Lebanese politicians +
It is correct to say that #France managed to slow down the #US agressive approach toward #Lebanon but it is wrong to say that Paris and Washington agreed and have the same view on how to approach Lebanon.
The differences are: +
#France supports the participation of #Hezbollah in the future government. The French are more clever than the current US administration even if both support #Israel at the end of the day. Macron informed Hezbollah about his support to see the group in the new government +

#Hezbollah> Wikileaks doc exposes the Khomeinist terror org's lust for ammonium nitrate. H/t @LFofficialpage.

The mystery as to why #Iran's regime's Lebanese proxy insisted on appointing 1 of its members as the minister of agriculture in 2009 was decoded.

#Israel #Syria
#Hezbollah's Hussain Haj Hasan allegedly sold fertilizer shipments from #Syria to HZB agents & saw that they are forwarded to HZB operated warehouses in #Lebanon.

Why?

#Iran #Syria
A STRATFOR source in #Lebanon had reported (in 2010) that #Hezbollah was having difficulty obtaining military grade explosives like C4 & RDX & so had been relying more on supplies of ammonium nitrate to maintain its explosions cache.

Thread #Lebanon #Syria

For 8 years & while #Syria suffered from devastating war, #Lebanon seemed largely immune from what was happening next door

In just one year, all has changed

Rescuing #Lebanon now seems intertwined with how the West views Hezbollah, #Iran and Damascus =>
2-To say #Lebanon 's citizens are shocked by speed of change is an understatement. It was less than year ago when apparent fissures in the system were too small to matter. While some warned & wondered if the good times would last, the majority was oblivious to what lied ahead
3-Once its financial system became unglued like house of cards, #Lebanon already entered a new chapter

As if this wasn't enough, #BeirutExplosion was the horrific final blow that shook #Lebanon ' citizens and the way they viewed relationship with any authority

Breaking: Huge if proven true... WELT reporting Iran's Qods Force shipped Ammonium Nitrate to #Hezbollah in Beirut in 2013-2014. Three shipments were reportedly sent via airport, sea port and overland, totaling 630-670 tons of ammonium nitrate. welt.de/politik/auslan…

THREAD @IsraelMFA: The ruling issued by the Special Tribunal for #Lebanon, assigned to investigate the murder of PM #Hariri, was very clear in stating that terrorist organization #Hezbollah &its operatives were involved in both the murder & the tampering of the investigation. >>> The world must unite agains...
>>> #Hezbollah has taken the Lebanese people's future hostage on behalf of foreign interests. The world must unite against this terror organization in order to help #Lebanon set itself free of the threat that Hezbollah poses. >>> The world must unite agains...
>>> #Hezbollah's armament, precision guided missile project, and belligerent actions across the region threaten the entire #MiddleEast. The world must unite agains...

What we are listening to so far is a step by step catalogue of every accusation and a summary of the conclusion for each. The verdict will come at the end summarizing all the conclusions.
One single direct connection will be enough for the verdict to be politically significant. Very interesting what they could be building up to. Keep listening and don't jump to conclusions yet. Even at the end of this it will take a few days for the results be interpreted.
I am amazed though that the STL considers Ghassan Bin Jiddo as a credible witness. There can be several conclusions using the same evidence unconstrained by the rules of the Tribunal. So far the connection is not denied but the extent of it is being discussed.

Below is the history of IRGC.
#IRGC created by #Khomeini in 1979 is an #Iranian government agency tasked with defending the regime against internal and external threats. Espousing a radical ideology and a paranoid worldview.
#IRGCTerrorWithoutBorders #NoImpunity4Mullahs #Iran

#IRGC uses secret #police methods against its opponents within #Iran, and terrorist tactics against its enemies abroad.
The IRGC creates, trains, funds, arms, and deploys forces with thousands of fighters beyond Iran’s borders.

1) This week #Macron warned Iran not to interfere in #BeirutBlast - but this may be too late

IRGC Gen Salami:

“All [#IRGC] capacities have been mobilised to help the Lebanese people…we will be them until the end of this crisis”

Thread: #BeirutBlast view from #Iran
2) Last week’s explosion in #Beirut has put significant pressure on #Iran’s activities in Lebanon, which are carried out by #Hezbollah –a Shia Islamist militia Iran’s IRGC helped create in 80s to export Islamic Revolution to #Lebanon & destroy the “Zionist regime”(#Israel) Image
3)Hezbollah's been 1 of Iran’s most valuable assets. Together with IRGC it's undertaken Iran’s strategic/ideological goals via terrorism, hostage-takings,assassinations, Syria + it's entrenched itself in political institutions.For Hez actions @Levitt_Matt washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysi…
