Truly fascinating story linking #tech & #geopolitics, and involving #Gulf. #Google sponsors new undersea fiber optic cable connecting #Europe & #Asia, specifically #Italy & #India, via the #ArabianPeninsula. Should cut costs by 50% & really increase efficiency. Few details 👇 1/
The cable will be split in 2. Blue goes from #Italy to #Jordan (Aqaba) via #Israel and is done w/Telecom Italia. Raman goes from #India to Aqaba via #Oman & #SaudiArabia and done w/Omantel. The split is due to Saudi opposition of direct link to Israel (normalization, much?). 2/
The Blue-Raman cable will be the first connecting #Europe & #Asia to bypass #Egypt. All other cables do and in fact Egypt charges massively for access while also being the "biggest single-point-of-failure in the entire world." 3/

Give I'm a little bored - let's do a thread on UNIFIL etc.

The #UnitedNations Interim Force in #Lebanon, otherwise known as #UNIFIL #UN & #NATO peacekeeping operation which began in March 1978 - 42 years ago.
During the 1970s tension between #Israel and #Lebanon increased to an all-time high as after armed #Palestinian elements shifted from #Jordan to #Lebanon. Said forces conducted operations against #Israel and retreated to the safety of #Lebanese territory.
On 11 March 1978, this escalated with what is now called the Coastal Road massacre planned by Abu Jihad. Here's a bit about the Coastal Road Massacre.

#JerusalemDay. #Jordan captured Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter in the 1948 war, expelled all Jews, & denied access to Jews to the Western Wall for 19 years, til 1967 Liberation.

Few know that there were many Jewish POWs taken to Jordan Desert.
Why wasn't it known? Maybe because these photos by @AP photographer Daniel De Luce taken in June 4, 1948 were miscaptioned as "Jewish Refugees Illegal."

Pic: Israel Koperlov, 1½ years of age, on the knee of his father, Chaim Koperlov awaiting sunset check by Legion guards.
More "Jewish Refugees Illegal" pictures. The first with an incredulous caption: "Legion guards with two orthodox Jews who preferred imprisonment in Trans-Jordan to going into Jewish-held area of Jerusalem, which is also still a battle zone on June 4, 1948."

The dignity that comes from massacring a pizzeria filled with children.
Have just watched US Senate hearing into the appointment of an ambassador to Amman.

Guess how much attention the world's most wanted female fugitive living free in the capital of a strategic ally and Jordan's most important institutions shielding her from @TheJusticeDept got.
Simply beyond comprehension that the woman at the top of this thread, who boasts - boasts! - of killing many children including mine, evades US justice and lives like a queen in #Jordan because the US sees pursuing her as destabilizing its Jordanian ally.

Our daily request to #AIPAC2020 attendees:

Let us brief you on #AhlamiTamimi; the Americans she murdered including our daughter Malki, 15; what Hashemite #Jordan does to disgracefully thwart her extradition to US; the ongoing abuse of justice.

Waiting.

@RepAdamSmith is surely not the worst instance of them. And as offensive as the attitude of his staffers to us is, we realize they just do what they're paid to do. Still, we'd rather people knew about it than stay politely quiet:

Five nuggets mined from @POTUS #Israel-#Palestine peace plan that commentators may have missed on a quick reading: 1/6
1) Plan cites 1949 Armistice negotiations as a rationale for Triangle proposal, an #AvigdorLieberman favorite, to transfer 10 #Arab towns/villages from #Israel to #Palestine. Imagine if Palestinian negotiators cited '49 precedent to claim land currently inside #Israel? p. 13 2/6
2) Despite affirmation of the "same governance regime that exists today" for #Jerusalem holy sites -- and despite #Trump's appeal to #Jordan's king yesterday -- plan does not specifically endorse special #Hashemite role in preserving holy sites. p. 16 3/6

I have read the entire #Israel-#Palestinian peace plan and my advice to revelers is not to pop the champagne anytime soon -- "peace" is not around the corner. Here's a quick assessment. 1/11
I congratulate the plan's authors for injecting some realism into conventional views of this conflict. It is realistic for the Jordan River to be Israel's security barrier. It is realistic for hundreds of thousands of Israelis in West Bank not to be forced to relocate. 2/11
But they took those & other principles and stretched them beyond all recognition. #Israeli security control of #JordanValley became full sovereignty; not uprooting hundreds of thousands of settlers became not uprooting even 1 settler. There are no Solomonic judgments here. 3/11

We've analyzed this report & it is #bizarre. @HRW says it's promoting #HumanRights but it's actually whitewashing #terror (1/n)
One #bizarre @HRW argument is that #HumanRights are violated by banning membership in #Hezbollah, #Hamas, #PFLP #terror groups!

HRW refers to a Hezbollah affiliate-member as an "artist" & a PFLP leader as a human rights expert. They ignore Qatar Charity's Hamas links. (2/n)
In a #bizarre implication that #WestBank should be annexed, @HRW points to #Israel-controlled #Jerusalem as an example for "less restrictive measures." (3/n)

Just as we have been arguing all along, the #Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, what some call the #WestBank, are not illegal nor do they violate #InternationalLaw. For a territory to be deemed ‘occupied’, it needs to be seized from a rightful owner.
nyti.ms/2KAzmMi
Neither #Jordan nor the #PalestinianAuthority had any lawful title to the land when they launched the June ‘67 war against us. It was, in fact, Jordan that illegally annexed the territory in 1948, occupied it for 19 years and no one besides Jordan recognized this seizure.
Accordingly, when #IDF soldiers retook the territories in ‘67, they entered the land which no other entity had any lawful title to.

#BREAKING: #ISIL's leader, Abubakr al-Baghdadi is killed in #Barisha, Northern #Idlib.It is possible that #Turkey gave info on his hideout in exchange for reducing tensions with #US over military operation in NE #Syria. #US Military sources believe that Turkey was protecting him!
#BREAKING: It is known that the #ISIL's leader, Abubakr al-Baghdadi traveled from the East of #Syria to this village in North of #Syria using #Turkey's territory almost a year ago. He was clearly aided & supported by #Turkish Intelligence Service & the Turkish backed militias!
#BREAKING: The eight helicopters which participated in the operation for kill or capture of #ISIL's terrorist leader were belonging to #USArmy & also its detachment of 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment based in #Erbil Intl airport, N. #Iraq. (Archive video by #USAF)

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.
