#BREAKING: According to a former #Turkish Air Force pilot, two Airbus A400Ms of the air force transferred almost 250 Jihadists of #Syrian National Army to #Istanbul from Gazientep airfield minutes ago to be transferred to #Tripoli, #Libya by passenger airplanes within next 4 hrs!
My source corrected me and told me that, #Turkish Air Force has No intention to send these Airbus A400M transport airplanes directly to #Libya due to the fact that #Egypt|ian Air Force's F-16Cs supported by #UAE|AF Airbus A330 MRTT tankers are patrolling in #Libya's airspace now!

Finally got to get together with my wonderful agent Jessica, ⁦@craigliterary⁩! Next time, Berlin? Barcelona? Or London? Can’t wait!
Not sure if I’d mentioned this before, but: After years of going through hell (rudeness, humiliations & dignity-violations) in #USA airports, it is sooooooo nice to travel with dignity & respect here in #Turkey. Solid security, but efficient, respectful & dignified!
I timed it- It took me 8.5 min from the time I entered the Mega City #Istanbul SG airport this morning, going through 2 security check points, checking- in at the auto kiosk, & getting to my departure gate. Leaving me W/35 min to board- enough time 4 tea & freshly baked açma😊

In 1259 AD, 𝘔𝘢𝘮𝘭𝘶𝘬 Sultans took over the Egyptian throne from the 𝘈𝘺𝘺𝘶𝘣𝘪𝘥𝘴. Mamluks stretched from #Egypt to #Delhi. Mamluks were a peculiar people. #Mamluk sultanate was a self-perpetuating military oligarchy that lasted for more than 260 years.
In 1206, Qutb ud-din Aibak, a Mamluk Turkic general of Central Asian descent established the Slave dynasty in Delhi Sultanate. The name 'slave' fell for a terrible yet grudgingly admirable reason. Mamluks purchased youths from Turkic tribes. They were given rigorous training.
They were trained in Islam, military skills, horsemanship and archery, then freed to become soldiers in cavalry regiments. Mamluk system banned sons of soldiers to become soldiers.
Twelve military schools were established with 1200 capacity each, imparting rigorous discipline.

2) You may or may not know that the head of Turkey (Erdogan) hates the head of Israel (Netanyahu)
3) A spiteful kind of hate

Here’s a serious warning from Col. Başıbüyük @obasibuyuk90: Expect Major #ISIS Attacks in Europe #EU following #Turkey #Syria Op & Ceasefire. I consider the Colonel a solid source with implacable record & expertise. Think: Who wants to score geopolitical points with #ISIS Attacks
Let me give you a hint here (not that majority of my followers need any hints😉): Which globalist Factions have been so very alarmed & unhappy with #USA & #Russia cooperating on #MiddleEast issues? And remember: #MSM has been on this faction’s side. Okay?!
Here’s a bonus hint: That faction has been the loudest in opposing #Trump #Syria deal, and been warning (fear-mongering) on the peace efforts by #Russia-#Trump-#Assad by playing “This will revive #ISIS” card. Just saying!

1. For what it's worth, recognizing that Turkey is the greatest risk in the #Levant because #Turkey is an #ISIS & al-#Qaeda affiliate, a while ago, I proposed a mechanism that was quite similar to what the SDF and Assad regime agreed to. Assad is brutal. So are KSA, UAE, Egypt,
2. Israel and IRAN. But the Syrian people have a way to establish Democracy through the @UN #GenevaProcess. That becomes more likely with unity of #SDF and #SAA. The #jihadists are the enemy of humanity. #Erdogan is their leader. Turkey must pay the price for following the
3. false prophet. The #Ottoman Empire must be finally and forever destroyed. Wall the jihadists up in Anatolia and let them devour each other. Free #Istanbul and #Bakur from the #AKP terrorists. Change the map. @trpresidency @RTErdogan @USEmbassyTurkey

I decided to rewrite the thread on the Seal of Muḥammad to focus on the seal itself, and not the seal as part of the black shahāda flag, on which I have a proper thread. First of all, let's start with the actual design of the #seal on the #prophet's signet ring.
The most common and popular reading of the engraving today is "Allāh Rasūl Muḥammad", an #Arabic linguistic construction which places the subject after the object similar to the famous verse in the Qur'anic Fāṭir: 28: "Innamā yakhshā Allāha min ʿibādihi al-ʿulamāʾu."
Supporters of this theory argue that one should always position #God's divine name(s) in a superior position when writing a text, as did the prophet do when writing his letters. They state that only the top position befits the Divine Being, therefore starting with Allāh.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo

1. Tense time in #Rojava with speculation #Turkey may invade and engage US & partnered Syrian forces on Monday's anniversary of 2016 coup that permitted Turkey's dictator Erdogan to purge the Turkish armed forces pro-@NATO officer corps.
2. Turkey has received the Russian S-400 SAM system triggering US sanctions that are reported to be coming this week. Erdogan has gathered a large force in and around US and SDF forces that has embedded former elements of ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
3. The ability of the SDF to continue detention of 70,000 ISIS in Howl Camp including approximately 25,000 fighters is also unclear and may settle the issue of the repatriation of the ISIS forces to Europe when they arrive as part of Erdogan's jihadist forces.

A big night here in Istanbul as @ekrem_imamoglu upsets the apple cart in #Istanbulelections. There’s been back slapping & congratulatory hugging, car honking & flag waving on my drive across the Bosphorous tonight, but seems quieter than maybe expected. What happens next? #turkey
@ekrem_imamoglu Nothing quiet about this though. Watching on tv as @ekrem_imamoglu shouts to huge Istanbul crowd - Raise up your hands, raise them for the women, for the young, for democracy, law & justice. In this city, we build the future.

A pivotal moment for Turkey. #IstanbulElections
@ekrem_imamoglu Everything will be fine! The Istanbul victor @ekrem_imamoglu with the boy who spontaneously came up with his hashtag campaign! #herseycokguezelolacak

With that, a warm good night from a mood of positivity, and a few more car horns, at least for tonight, from a sultry Istanbul.

"Today, 16 million Istanbul residents have renewed our faith in democracy and refreshed our trust in justice."

#Istanbul loss marks tectonic shift for #Turkey: decisive victory for Ekrem Imamoglu proves Erdoğan can be defeated, even on his home turf on.ft.com/2N8JIGV
Erdogan's gambit of challenging the results of the first #Istanbul election backfired badly.

Margin of victory for opposition:
March 31 = 13,000
Today = 800,000

Woooooooow....
#Erdogan’s nightmare has become a reality.
Viva @ekrem_imamoglu
Viva #Istanbul
#Erdogan tried every trick in the book, from flirting with #PKK’s Oclean, to liken @ekrem_imamoglu to #Egypt’s Sisi.
All failed.
#Imamoglu won.
Erdoganistan is officially in twilight!
#Erdogan made a major error of judgment when he ordered Istanbul re-run election.
Now, he may now try to portray himself as a democrat, but it is too late. The people of #Istanbul are the true abd BRAVE Democrats.

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Watching the so-called “Historic” #Istanbul Mayoral Candidates’ debates: The most boring live Pol debate I have ever watched. Partly due to not much experience in #Turkey media on this. The host sucks; terribly sucks with the most boring/flat questions... BORING!
I believe there is a YouTube version with English subtitles as well. Anyhow. Not worth it. Two candidates reading from the list of things they will do as a mayor- spending $X billion on training, $Y billion on daycare... and no one knows where all the money will come from ...
It is like two toddlers’ Christmas wish lists for Santa😂😂😂Zero controversial tough question from the host. Zero challenge. Just plain ridiculous & boring.

New documents reveal #Turkey' founder Ataturk buys chemical warfare from Nazi Germany (1937) to use against Kurdish Alevi civilians of #Dersim.

Turkish dictator Ataturk killed ten thousands of civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan in 1937-38

#twitterkurds #Kurdistan #Turkey #Istanbul
Poisonous gas bought from Nazi Germany were: Sulfur mustard (iperit), Phenacyl chloride (chloroacetophenone).

Documents show, Ataturk orders poisonous gas to be transported to Elaziz (Elazig) to be used against civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan.

#twitterkurds #Turkey
Ataturk proved to Hitler that killing civilians with poisonous gas is "not a crime" in 1937 and then Hitler walked in his path and did exactly the same to Jewish people in Germany.

Kemal Ataturk gassed Alevi Kurds in caves of Dersim, Hitler gassed jews in chambers of Auschwitz..
