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

#Qatar fully support the #Erdogan Gov attack on northern #Syria. Signaling an all out #MuslimBrotherhood war on the minorities in the Middle East. Now it is official.
Washington cannot but stand with the beleaguered minority communities in Syria and the #Levant, because the American people support them, and it is an official policy of the #Trump Administration and the US Congress.
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @VP @SecPompeo
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @VP @SecPompeo For couple years from Washington to Warsaw, from Paris to Budapest, conferences, dinners and speeches were delivered with passion, "in defense of minorities in the Middle East." Now these communities are being attacked & their villages destroyed in Syria. Now is time for action.

Onu buraya getiren irade soy bağı.
Boşuna değil Tayyip Erdoğan ve Osmanlı Düşmanlığı.

What did the #OldArabic of the #Levant sound like? Here is a reading of an inscription in the Hismaic script from the region of #Madaba, #Jordan. It dates to the Nabataean period, ~ 2000 years ago. The commentary is in the following tweet but can you understand it without help?
The pronunciation is triangulated with Arabic data from Nabataean, Hismaic, and Greek inscriptions. Greek is especially important because it gives us the values of the vowels and some of the consonants.
The text begins with the man’s name: le-phalhān ben ḥonayne ben ʔatme ḏī ʔāl natag ‘By Phalhān son of Ḥonayn son of ʔatm of the lineage of Natag’. Notice that the Arabic fāʾ in this period and region was likely still pronounced as an aspirated p =

Alright, so the esteemed @ArmoryBazaar posted some pictures of coins found in Idlib - Syria. I would like to make a thread out of this, for future coins. I will post my take on these coins, but I'm very much interested in other opinions.
The two small copper coins (picture 2 & 3) are in my opinion #Umayyad copper fals. The inscription features Islamic texts, most definitely the Islamic shahada. That indicates they're from the later Umayyad period. I would say 8th century.
It's really possible that the last coin is much older that the other coins. It still features a cross and human imagery, indicating Byzantine influences. This kind of coins were used in early Umayyad times, when the caliphs still imitated #Byzantine en #Persian coinage.
