Images and Tweets by @TPostMillennial detail last night's vigil for “heroes of Islam” #Qasem_Soleimani. The event was organized by the @MahdiYouth Society (MY Society). Within the group was a #Hezbollah supporter, waving the terrorist organization's flag.

As per the Gov't of Canada website, both #Hizballah & #Soleimani's #QodsForce are🚩as terrorist organizations.

So you have @MahdiYouth organizing an event with protesters clearly supporting terrorist organizations and declared by the 🇨🇦 gov't.

So who is @MahdiYouth?

Based in #Pickering, MY Society was founded and is sponsored by Al-Mahdi Islamic Centre @almahdicentre.

Based on their Facebook videos (which include clear anti-Israel views), there doesn't seem to be much inclusion of girls.

The reports that #IRGC Quds commander Qassem Sulaymani and his Iraqi deputy, Jamal al-Ibrahimi (Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis), have been killed by a drone strike [apparently American] in Baghdad are now coming from Iraqi politicians close to #Iran/#Hashd and #Hizballah outlets, FWIW.
The #US should have killed Quds Force commander Qassem Sulaymani and the other senior members of the #IRGC network in Iraq, Abu Mahdi chief among them, many years ago. What's odd is "why-now?", if this has happened. Where they aiming for a Hashd guy and got lucky?
By "odd", what I mean is - despite the clear rhetorical and tit-for-tat escalations on the Gulf and at the Iraqi bases - the #US is in no way positioned to absorb what #Iran will throw at them if they have killed Qassem Sulaymani.

"Mazloum" is Ferhat Abdi Shahin (Shahin Cilo), a very senior member of the #PKK, a movement of post-Bolshevik narco-terrorists, recognised as such by US law.

Shahin joined PKK in 1990, has been the "SDF" coordinator with the @Coalition, who are fully aware of what he is.
After #Turkey launched airstrikes against the #PKK in Iraq and Syria on 25 April 2017, the U.S. attended one of the bases in Syria to signal solidarity with PKK. The PKK made sure that the U.S. military was photographed with Shahin, one of PKK's most-wanted men.
If you imagine a U.S. General meeting with Naim Qassem, the deputy of #Hizballah, to plan anti-terrorist operations that leave Hizballah controlling most of the Israeli border, then picture #Israel's reaction; you have some idea what this does to #Turkey.

The U.S.'s proposal for an accord with #Russia over #Syria, the purpose of which is to get #Iran out, is broadly known from reporting. Folks familiar with the Syria policy discussions clarified some details. <Thread below>
As an aside: the Syria policy seems to have been taken away from the State Department, wholly into the White House, specifically into the hands of John Bolton, in the run-up to this summit with Putin.
The U.S. will propose:
- Withdrawal of #Iran's personnel (inc. #Hizballah) from Syria, *not* in a "phased" manner but as Stage One of the process;
- After six months, with verification Iran is gone, the U.S. will shut down its bases, not just Tanf, all in the SDF/PKK area

while countries w/ sectarian/Islamist agendas (including Turkey) are part of the problem, woefully&irresponsibly (intentionally) missing from @theintercept “article” is #Iran #Hizballah #Russia How the Saudi-Qatari rivalry has fueled the war in #Syria interc.pt/2yUwlD1 Image
The leading factor in the destruction of #Syria remains Assad regime w/ its LIFELINE from #iran & #russia - many other countries helped including #SaudiArabia #Qatar #Turkey but any responsible article mustn’t obfuscate that as this one does
Similarly #Iran #Hizballah are major traffickers in sectarianism as well. Smacks of a kind of Islamophobia to only mention the Sunni variety (tho its arguably the clumsier less savvy variety). It takes two to tango there and the region’s tormentors never decline the opportunity

CAA’s Demonstration and Event Monitoring Unit (DEMU) is gathering evidence at the pro-Hizballah “#AlQuds Day” parade. If crimes are committed we intend to take legal action to bring the perpetrators to justice. Please send your own photographs or videos to demu@antisemitism.uk.
Already police are having to deploy to keep various sides apart. As the pro-#Hizballah parade gets underway. #BanHizballah #AlQuds
To leave no doubt what this parade is really about, the organisers have been handing out placards declaring unity with Hizballah. How is @IHRC still allowed to be a charity @ChtyCommission? A disgrace.
