The story of #hydroxychloriquine .. we are all familiar, those who had been tracking #COVID19 from Feb 2020.. till now..
BUT I'm going telling to you, there's another side to this story, which ultimately shows #HydroxycholoroquineWorks !! cc @raoult_didier…
It all started from Raoult's study as detailed below.. 3 groups;
Group 1: 14 Px given HCQ or #hydroxychloriquine ,
Group 2: 6 Px given HCQ + #azithromycin
Group 3: "control group" of 16 from other hospital; no new Rx or refused.. 1/n… Image
Then rationale of not having usual RCT (Random Controlled Test) .. coz to Raoult, it's morally NOT right to withhold a possible effectice treatment to deadly disease.. Remember, all this would be in Mac/Apr of 2020 in Europe.. hotbed of #COVID19 .. 2/n… Image

A thread on my @ChathamHouse research report coauthored with @ShaharHameiri:

"Debunking the Myth of ‘Debt-trap Diplomacy’: How Recipient Countries Shape China’s Belt and Road Initiative."

It contains detailed case studies of #Malaysia & #SriLanka.…

This report takes on a view propagated by think tanks and senior Western policymakers: that China's #BeltandRoad Initiative involves "debt trap diplomacy": deliberately luring developing countries into contracting unsustainable debt to finance infrastructure projects.

The idea being that, when these countries fall into debt distress, China can grab the infrastructure for itself, extending its geostrategic reach (e.g. more port bases for its navy), or otherwise exerting influence. US Sec of State Tillerson called it "predatory economics".

#Turkey’s President sees himself as a Caliph of the Islamic world. He backs Pakistan, a state sponsor of terror on #Article370. Actor Amir Khan in the eye of a storm now. ⁦@SudhanshuTrived⁩ ⁦@sairashahhalim⁩ Amb Ashok Sajjanhar on #DeshkaGaurav
#Turkey #Pakistan & #Malaysia are desperate to form an alternate Ummah, breaking away from #SaudiArabia. Pak the pauper is riding piggy back on Turkey’s wealth where Recep Erdogan sees himself as the 21st century Caliph. His statements on J&K are not only false but also malicious
Both Pakistan & Turkey want to create fissures in Indian society. Is there a sinister plot to divide our society through certain means, asks Amb Ashok Sajjanhar on #DeshKaGaurav on #Tez. Turkey & Pakistan have both played the religious card to divide the people of India. Beware!!

Now things in #Penang are slowly unraveling with rise in #Covid_19 cases.. Not easy with fragments of info, but here it is.. Cases in Penang are basically from Kedah #TawarCluster ..
Immediate case at Adventist Hospital was case 9129, 56y F.
Proactive steps were taken.. 1/n ImageImage
And to make sense of @malaysiakini report below.. It had correctly quoted @DGHisham that case 9129, the 56y female reportedly admitted Adventist #Penang .. was part of Kedah #TawarCluster .. hence not yet a Penang #Covid_19 case.. 2/n Image
Then combining both @malaysiakini , @DGHisham & @KKMPutrajaya .. We see the bigger picture yesterday that the #Penang #Covid_19 positive yesterday was case 9149, 58y F who was "visiting case 9133 & case 9129 at a private hospital in Penang" !! case 9149 is from Teluk Kumbar.. 3/n ImageImage

#BillClinton supported #AlQaeda in #Bosnia and #Kosovo in the 1990s as confirmed by #RPC Congressional documents;  #HillaryClinton has supported #AlQaeda and the #IslamicState (ISIS-Daesh) in #Syria.
This article was first published in 2002.…
Known and documented, since the #SovietAfghanWar, recruiting #Mujahideen (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on #Washington’s behest has become an integral part of #US foreign policy.
A 1997 Congressional document by the #RPC, while intent upon smearing President #BillClinton, nonetheless sheds light on the Clinton administration’s insidious role in recruiting and training jihadist mercenaries with a view to transforming #Bosnia into  a “Militant Islamic Base”

Pakistan's international positioning has improved multi-folds in the last 2 years under PM @ImranKhanPTI's leadership.

This was a much-needed step to improve peace and prosperity in the area, but like everything this govt. has done, this too did not come easy. (1/n)
2) The govt. inherited the current account deficit of $20B which has been reduced to $3B. The borrowing from the State Bank stood at PKR 6T when @PTIofficial came to power, but it has been brought down to ZERO.


Through carefully curated international relations.
3) The first challenge was inflation. @StateBank_Pak warned it could double & go up to 7.5%. Where PM @ImranKhanPTI avoided going to the @IMFNews, he still wanted to reduce the size of any bailout by appealing to allies for bilateral financial support & saving us from bankruptcy.

"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."

During my visit to #Malaysia last year, I criticized the excessively low national poverty line, a statistical sleight of hand that erased poverty in the country.

The government has now doubled the absolute poverty line, raising the poverty rate from 0.4% to 5.6%. My response:
Malaysia's government has taken a courageous step towards bringing its poverty line closer to reality. The line announced today is more than double the previous one and results in an official poverty rate 14 times higher than previously acknowledged.
But because the new poverty rate of 5.6% is just one-third of that estimated by almost all independent analyses, I hope that the government will include an even more realistic benchmark in the 12th Malaysia Plan.

This tweet admits the reason why a number of lawmakers have supported the #AntiTerrorBill and confirms the concerns and sentiments of those who oppose it--that it is to quell dissent toward the #DuterteKakistocracy and to clamp on free speech and the freedom of the press.
To begin with, all the countries mentioned in the senate president's tweet have either undergone oppressive governments under tyrants, registered poor ratings in free speech and press freedom, committed gross violations of human rights, or even banned religious freedom.
Thailand, for instance, had been ruled by men in uniform for 55 of the 83 years from 1932 to 2009. And it was ruled by a military junta from 2014 to 2019. Its politics also has a frammework of constitutional monarch. It may also be recalled that in 2007, a military
