So apparently, it's #WorldLionDay, which provides me with the ideal moment for starting a thread on the so-called Lion of #Judah.
The tribe of Judah is one of the twelve tribes of #Israel, who all descended from the 12 sons of the patriarch Jacob, as was stated in both the Old and the New Testament. Each of these tribes has a specific symbol, as shown below in an Israeli mosaic in a street of #Jerusalem.
It is written in the New #Testament: "And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel." [Revelations 21:12-13]

Évian Conference, July 6–15, 1938, at Évian-les-Bains, France, organized by FDR who hoped to obtain commitments to accept Jewish refugees from some of the invited 32 nations & 24 organizations, and to deflect from the U.S.'s severely limited quota. Ireland declined to accept any.
The conference to obtain commitments to accept Jewish refugees was attended by 32 countries, 24 orgs and Golda Meir, representing British Mandate Palestine. She was not permitted to speak or participate. 200 international journalists were at Évian to observe and publish reports.

#Jerusalem's Pilgrims' Path is under City of David-Dung Gate area.
See photos taken in 1950s while under Jordan's Administration. The area is bare, untouched by residents or archaeologists.
Also note in enlargement the razed remains of the
Jewish Qtr & Rothschild bldg. /1
Color pics show how little development was done in the area pre-1967 under Jordan. Most of the building done in last 50 yrs under Israel.

Area of Silwan/Siloam was home to Jews, too, until Arab pogroms & expulsion. Some Pics date back 120 yrs. Yemenite Jews came in 1882.
This annotated picture of Silwan in 1880s was from a Bonfils collection in Lebanon preserved by British Museum.
Enlarged note says "Yemenite colony." /3

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

#JerusalemDay next wk commemorating Jewish reunification of Jerusalem in 1967. When Allenby & Brits arrived on Hanukkah eve in 1917, a British officer brought a Torah scroll. The table next to him was for Hanukkah candles.
50 yrs before the 1967 liberation.
@americanzionism
One year later, Hanukkah eve 1918, Jews of #Jerusalem proclaimed #JerusalemDay to commemorate anniversary of their deliverance with prayers, Psalms, & special prayer for the King of England. This was a flyer "In Honor of Liberation Day" calling on synags & Yeshivot to participate
Allenby did not go to the Kotel on the day he accepted the surrender of Jerusalem. He was in the Old City for 15 minutes to read a proclamation & left, but the photographer who took the iconic pic of Allenby took the pics of Torah at the Kotel.

Sure hope @UNESCO is going to raise hell about ISIS’ latest act of iconoclastic destruction and ethnic cleansing — by which I mean China and the Uyghurs.

— Some human lives are more “human” than others.
— Some universal cultural heritage is more “universal” than others.

Give a moment of thought for what that means.

#China #Uyghurs #NotreDame #AlAqsa #Paris #Jerusalem
On NPR right now, the French billionaire funding Notre Dame’s reconstruction:

“I was in China when I heard...I woke up, crying.”

“I am so glad this was an accident and not terrorists.”

Today #NotreDame, in flames.
Today #AlAqsa, in flames.

Today #Paris burns.
Today #Jerusalem burns.

Both accidental.

But the striking absence I do not need to point out is...glaringly apparent, with all of its implications.
Two cities close to my heart.
Two sacred spaces close to my soul.

Two parts ripped in half, my heart going up in smoke.

Speculation about the “real cause” of one, the entire world in mourning. But almost nothing about the other. At all.
Hyperbolic hysteria, the expected equation:
Cathedral/France + Destruction = Arab +/- Muslim

But Jesus was not Parisian.

Al-Aqsa in flames. But that’s normal - “for them,” after all.
Which “them,” then, was and is Jesus?

Am I allowed to be outraged by this, or does that make me "antisemitic" ?

- Video of a Palestinian child being assaulted by Israeli police this morning.
By @syedakif17

Isreali goons dressed in uniforms violating basic human rights of Palestinians 24/7.

Constitution of Israel is based on Talmud where Goyims have no rights.

If a Zionist kill anyone, he's not to be punished, he's owns gentiles.

#Pakistan should de-link #Palestine & #Kashmir, and #Israel/#India, in its foreign policy dictionary.

The foreign policy overhaul should cover this subject smartly, rationally, and with focus on maximizing #Islamabad's gains and limiting losses. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
We in #Pakistan have grown used to casually mentioning #Palestine/#Kashmir & #Israel/#India in a way that hurts our position, limits our options, and leads us to inaccurate conclusions and policy positions. It's more emotion and less logic. /2

@AQpk
#Palestine & #Kashmir are two different conflicts/disputes legally & politically, with separate trajectories, solutions & end results. Pal/Isr reached peace agreement & recognized each other in 1994; differ now on implementation. Kashmir is invasion/occupation/annexation./3
