The resumption of #Saudi-#Iran relations has triggered what I believe to be exaggerated reaction about #China’s emergence as a #MiddleEast powerbroker and a strategic shift of #Riyadh away from its traditional partners. 1/17
Some context: in an October meeting in #Jeddah, a #Saudi leader at the highest level explained his strategy was to defeat #Iran through growth. The fact that KSA is the fastest growing G-20 country, w/trillions invested in everything from tourism to mining, supports this. 2/17
But growth takes time - and growth can be sidetracked through insecurity, whether from #Houthi missiles or the threat of nuclear blackmail. To protect the long-term strategy, he said, KSA needs security. 3/17

In meiner TL heute: Statement der #MuslimWorldLeague 👇

Verkürzt übersetzt: dem befreundeten deutschen Volk und den Opfern des Anschlags in Hamburg unser herzliches Beileid.

Wer im Nahen Osten der 1980-er aufgewachsen ist, erinnert sich an den Wahabismus-Export d saudischen Regimes. Kulturell war er wenig attraktiv.

Jordanische Jugendliche haben lieber „Dallas“ (gerne auch im israelischen TV) als Koran TV aus Saudi Arabien verfolgt.

Die saudische „Soft Power“ Projektion war in Afrika und Europa subtiler & effektiver. Milliarden an Petrodollars wurden in Entwicklungsprojekte, aber auch in Moscheen und Medrasas gepumpt. Ein Träger war die @MWLOrg . „Bestenfalls“ wurde d puritanische Ideologie verbreitet 3/x

(1/22) In this 🧵we cover why it perhaps is premature to rule out Elon Musk buying #MUFC, and especially look at a couple of aspects that have yet to be covered, that greatly increase the odds of this takeover taking place.
(2/22) The report of Musk’s interest to by MUFC has not really been taken seriously. Reactions has varied from total disbelief to at best speculations on how nothing can be ruled out when it comes to Elon Musk. There are however many scenarios – other than it...
(3/22)..being an ‘act of madness’ – that could explain his interest in the club. In this thread, we will look closer at three of them. First of all, it is important to remember that Elon Must has a long history of cooperating with Saudi Arabia.

[Enquête d'@a_hmissi sur le #softpower Saoudien🇸🇦 en France🇫🇷]

Que cache les rumeurs sur la #VenteOM🟦 à l’#ArabieSaoudite ?

Le rachat du club le plus populaire de France pourrait être un grand coup dans le cadre d'une stratégie d'influence plus globale.

L’actualité fait régulièrement écho des dérives de la monarchie en matière de droits humains : Assassinat de #Khashoggi, kidnapping du 1er ministre libanais Saad Hariri, guerre au Yémen, arrestation des militants saoudiens #RaifBadawi et @LoujainHathloul
Pour redorer l’image de son pays, le prince héritier d’Arabie Saoudite, Mohamed Ben Salmane, mise sur une stratégie d’influence non coercitive : le soft power.

The White House said it was “disappointed” by the decision of the OPEC Plus energy cartel, led by Saudi Arabia & Russia, to cut oil production to try to raise prices.

Biden’s “fist-bump diplomacy” with Saudi leader MBS failed…

Surprise! 🙄

🧵… Image
It was part of US and EU efforts to limit Moscow’s ability to use energy as leverage over third parties after Russia’s invasion of #Ukraine.
But no one, least of all the White House, should be surprised if MBS didn’t keep his word.

When Biden went to Jeddah in July to ask MBS for oil favors –that cringey fist-bump– the Administration surely should have understood who they were dealing with.…

1/x Russia and Saudi Arabia teamed up today to prop up oil prices, which have slid by roughly 25% since early June.

I dug into the key drivers in their relationship and some of the limitations in an article co-written w Jasmine Alexander-Greene…
2/x Personalities matter a lot. MBS and Putin revel in taunting the Biden administration. Unfortunately, the Ukraine war changed nothing.

It always pays to remember MBS's comments about Biden's complaints about the Kingdom: “Simply, I do not care.”…
3/x People like to point to the tectonic factors pulling Russia and the Gulf Arabs together: eg the Mideast becoming less important to US nat'l security, the pivot to Asia, drawdown from Iraq and Afghanistan, and surging U.S. oil/gas production. These are indeed real issues.

On Oct 2, 2018, Washington Post columnist and U.S. resident #JamalKhashoggi was brutally murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Today, CPJ and partner organizations are renaming the street outside @SaudiEmbassyUSA in Washington DC as #KhashoggiWay.

President @JoeBiden’s planned meeting with Israeli, Saudi, and Egyptian leaders next month runs the risk of a return to business as usual

@POTUS should not normalize the killing and jailing of journalists…

Dice la compagna di Jamal Khashoggi che né l'Onu né la UE hanno avviato procedimenti legali contro gli assassini del giornalista ucciso e massacrato nel consolato arabo a Istanbul su mandato del regime di bin Salman.
Proprio come per #Assange le istituzioni politiche che dicono di lavorare per i diritti, la giustizia si voltano dall'altra parte e lasciano che gli interessi economici prevalgano.
Nessuno alza la voce coi regimi, non lo fa l'Italia con l'Egitto che nega giustizia e verità su Giulio Regeni perché gli affari vengono prima, non lo fa l'occidente col regime barbaro che solo qualche giorno fa ha eseguito un centinaio di condanne a morte in un giorno solo

Turkey to hand Khashoggi trial over to Saudis.

The journalist was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.

Handing case to Riyadh will "reinforce Saudi authorities' apparent belief that they can get away with murder", says Human Rights Watch

#Wirecard hat in der Bilanz 2018 offenbar Scheingeschäfte in Asien durch neue Scheingeschäfte ersetzt. Trotz zahlreicher Ungereimtheiten bekam der damalige DAX-Konzern von #EY ein uneingeschränktes Testat - bemerkenswert! Warum? Ein #Thread zur Recherche mit @JosefStreule👇
Am 24.4.2019 trifft sich der Wirecard-Aufsichtsrat. #EY erstellt dafür eine Präsentation. Darin steht: Bei mehreren Tochterfirmen in Asien seien Scheinumsätze in Höhe von 10 Mio. € entdeckt worden. Die müssen raus aus der Bilanz. 11 Mio. € kommen dafür rein.👇
"Einbuchung von bislang nicht erfassten Umsatzerlösen", steht in der Präsentation. Unsere Recherchen zeigen: Auch diese nachträglich verbuchten Umsätze gibt es nicht. #Wirecard stellt diesen Vorgang danach im Geschäftsbericht als eine Art Buchungsfehler dar.👇
