🧵 The Bosniaks in the Levant

Bushnak Arabic: بشناق, meaning "Bosniak", is a surname common among Levantines of Bosniak origin. Image
Those sharing this surname are the descendants of Bosniaks apprehensive of living under Christian rule after the 🇦🇹🇭🇺 occupation of Bosnia in 1878, who immigrated to Ottoman #Syria.
While not originally from one family, most Bosniaks who immigrated to the Levant adopted Bushnak as a common surname, attesting to their origins. Bushnak is also used colloquially among Palestinians to refer to someone who is fair-skinned.

.@WashingtonPost alleges the IDF targeted civilians in #Nablus bc surfaced videos "don't clearly show whether the man [they targeted] had a gun or fired.” Terror-designated @DCIPalestine, quoted by the Post, admits the same videos show a Palestinian man shooting at the soldiers.>
.@DCIPalestine's own report states the IDF shot at a gunman - but changed their tone when quoted in the @washingtonpost: “'Israeli military rules of engagement have shifted over the past few years to permit live fire where no threat is posed to Israeli forces.'”
This distortion of the truth to give credence to an anti-Israel hit piece is another display of DCI-P’s complete disregard for the Palestinian youth they claim to protect. Instead they continue to defend the terrorists who used 16-year-old Mohammed Shaaban as a human shield.

Days after we revealed that 50% of the Palestinian deaths in 2022 were claimed by terror groups, the NYT asserts that there is a "rush by armed groups to claim those killed as martyrs," and that most were, in fact, civilians.

There's just one problem with that: it's not true. Image
Our research team discovered that at least 60% were shot as they attacked civilians or security forces with guns, explosives, Molotov cocktails, knives, rocks, and cars. An additional 29% died during violent riots.

The @nytimes simply omits this fact from its article. Image
It is also important to note that some two-thirds of all casualties occurred in #Jenin and #Nablus, two militant hotbeds competing for the title of Palestinian "terror capital." Image
