I left my house for two minutes.
And two minutes was all it took.

If you're thinking about traveling or living in #Morocco, but have the audacity to do it while black, read this first:
On March 21st, 2019, at about 7:45pm, I left my apartment in Rabat, Morocco to buy some wine before the store closed. I passed by my roommate on the way there, and told her I'd be back. I did not come back.
When I reached a roundabout right up the street, a strange man repeated, "Bonjour" to me. Many people constantly sell things here, so I ignored him. But he got closer and eventually grabbed my shoulder and then grabbed my chest.

🚨Why is 20th Aug imp?

20 August 636, a battle that changed history

Between Byzantines & Muslims at Yarmuk, #Syria

Byzantines assembled a huge army against Muslims who had won Syria 1 yr ago

Muslims retreated to Yarmuk, bound by cliffs 200ft high
Vahan, a renowned General, was in command of Byzantines

Abu Ubaida was commanding Muslims, but Khalid, though removed from command by Umar, the second Caliph, was still his second in command

Retreating Muslims had brought their families & family camps were behind the army camps
Before the battle began, Vahan tried to negotiate. Khalid represented the Muslims

Vahan said,”We know that desert is very harsh. You are very poor. That is why you come to raid us every now and then. Please go back. We will give you food and gold.”

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!

MYTH: It’s an ugly misconception that Jews and Arabs lived in peace before 1948.

REALITY: Jews have faced racism and discrimination for centuries in Arab countries.

This poster I made, 1 of 9, tells the story of Jewish persecution in #Yemen in the 20th century.

Thread , Very interesting report:
#ISIS Ambassador in #Ankara !!!
by @AnneSpeckhard
1/ Abu Mansour, an electrical engineer from #Morocco, came to #Syria in 2013. He traveled from Casablanca, Morocco, to Istanbul, Turkey, and through the southern border of Turkey into Syria. His first stop was Idlib, Syria, just as hostilities between al Nusra and ISIS had begun.
2/ Abu Mansour ended up on the ISIS side of that rift and was assigned by ISIS the job of an intake official on the Syrian side of the Turkish border. His job was to receive the steady flow of foreign fighters streaming into ISIS via #Turkey.

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.

These Moroccan coins feature the so-called Seal of Solomon, often depicted as a hexagram, similar to the Star of David. The coins are dated respectively 1271 A.H. (1855) and 1290 A.H. (1873/4), minted by king 'Abd al-Raḥmān and his successor, Muḥammad IV of #Morocco.
The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to the Abrahamic king/prophet Solomon. It is said that Solomon used this ring to control the spirits and animals. The design as a hexagram is often depicted on medieval #Islamic banners, coins, drinking-cups or in mosques.
According to the Catalan Atlas (1375), the two Anatolian beyliks of respectively Karaman and Candar featured a Seal of Solomon on their flags. The symbol was popular among the Turkish beyliks, and was later used by the #Ottomans in their mosque decorations.

@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

The first trip abroad that I paid for, was to #Malaysia and #Singapore. I've never understood the average Nigerian's obsession with "Jand" and "Yankee". So, as soon as I could afford to travel abroad, I chose somewhere exotic. #Travel #TravelBae
When I was growing up, I had a strong image of who I wanted to be in life. I wanted to be exposed and have distinct encounters. I wanted to explore unusual things and meet unusual people. #TravelBae
#Singapore & #Malaysia did that for me. I met people I wouldn't ordinarily connect with and listened to them talk about their society and daily lives. I returned from the trip knowing there was a world bigger than #Nigeria. There were people with national problems too. #TravelBae

I love to travel and I love to teach. That's why I'm excited to be going to #Morocco during my birthday, with @travelbayhq and @Omojuwa. #TravelBae
#Morocco a country I've never visited, but have heard great things about! I'll also get a chance to speak to my co-travelers about "How to Make Money in #Nigeria", in an exclusive fireside chat over sumptuous dinner.
I'd planned to visit #Morocco before, but shelved my plans when I was told I needed to go to Abuja (from Lagos) to process the visa. I was having none of that! But thanks to @Travelbayhq, visa, flight and hotel arrangements will be facilitated on my behalf.

1. So #GroupB of the #WorldCup with #Spain, #Portugal, #Morocco and #Iran is the best group ever and we already know what will happen. You just need to look back to the turn of the 16th century and events that linked all of these countries (and Russia). History will repeat.
2. In 1578, at the Battle of Ksar El Kebir in Morocco, the young king of Portugal Sebastian I, who had allied with deposed Sultan Abu Abdallah Mohammed against usurper Abd Al-Malik I, died. The next in line, Cardinal Henry, also promptly died. A succession crisis followed.
3. The end of the House of Aviz led to the Iberian Union in 1580, when Philip II of Spain marched into Portugal and defeated the troops loyal to the Prior of Crato, another claimant to the throne, in the Battle of Alcântara. Spain and Portugal were united. (Portrait by Titian)

#Russia-n mercenaries are now showing up everywhere in #Africa: one country in particular is the #CAR where Russians are also providing weapons. Also present in the #Niger Delta of #Nigeria actually helping the rebels that target the western oil companies. bit.ly/2KkU0OD
Fascinating story on how #Russia entered the #CAR. It was blocking a delivery of weapons from #France to #Bangui so #Macron told CAR President to go and convince Russia to unblock the sale. Instead Russia saw an opportunity to sell its own weapons to CAR. bit.ly/2rj8kyH
3 #Russian journalists killed in #CAR while filming #Wagner, the private military firm run by Evgeny #Prigozhin used especially in #Syria, part of #Putin's inner circle. Documentary was part of @tzurrealism, supported by Mikhail #Khodorkovsky.
