Having a good time with #NewYearsEve?
Let me ruin it with this map of the military situation in Eastern Europe, which shows us:

1) #Russia's massive military buildup vs. #Ukraine & #Europe: 33x brigades & 35x regiments. (@USarmy in total: 31x brigades & 7x regiments/groups)

1/7
2) If #Russia annexes #Belarus, then #Putin will forward deploy his tanks to #Poland's border & the doorstep of #Lithuania's capital #Vilnius. He will also threaten #Ukraine's capital #Kyiv from the #North and it will be easy for Russian troops to close the #Suwalki Gap.

2/7
3) #Poland's best brigades are based near #Germany. They must move East to protect #Warsaw & be an operational reserve to come to the aid of #Lithuania. Poland also needs more tanks; & modern attack helicopters, infantry fighting vehicles, fighters, guided missile artillery.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

1/
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 85% of Jews consider #Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country;

➡️ 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year, with those being visibly Jewish most effected;

So now we have combat ready armored vehicles with the EU flag which are being used against unarmed European protesters who are demonstrating against a pro EU authoritarian regime.

Still think the #EU is a “project for peace”?

#Mscron #GiletsJaunes #YellowVests #Paris #France
The biggest lie that the EU, the mass media, and the people who support it tell everyone, and to themselves, is that the EU is a democratic organization.

The EU isn't a democratic organization, it's actually the excat opposite.

dispropaganda.com/single-post/20…
Meet the president of the #EU, #DonaldTusk, who was never democratically elected into office of course, that's not how they do things in the EU, and who is also one of the most corrupt and despotic politicians in the whole of Europe.

Just ask #Poland.

On Friday, #Poland’s Gov will be in front of Court of Justice of EU arguing against Court’s interim order reinstating judges Gov is trying to depose. >
Polish Supreme Court has implemented CJEU order - but Gov is pretending judges can’t do that, see thread 2/
On Friday, CJEU should ask Polish Gov to explain itself:
- Why is Gov refusing to recognise the judges the Supreme Court has recognized?
- Why does Gov claim judges need recognition by people appointed under laws suspended by CJEU?
- Will Gov fully comply with order CJEU makes?

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Today’s CJEU order against #Poland was made by first woman to serve as court’s Vice-President, Judge Rosario Silva de Lapuerta - appointed this month curia.europa.eu/jcms/jcms/rc4_…
Personal note: Judge Silva de Lapuerta once accused me of having an “a la carte” approach to the Treaty. Possibly with justification...
There hasn’t been a female President yet.

In the absence of full text of ruling for time being (as far as I can see) a quick thread based on the (comprehensive) ECJ press release

#RuleofLaw #Poland
1/ Two most important features of ECJ VP order: its *immediate* suspensive effect re rules on forced retirement of SCt judges & its *retroactive* effect re SCt judges already dismissed on basis of these rules
2/ On the + side (that is if you believe in the #ruleoflaw): all previously “purged” SCt judges must be reinstated + current First President of SCt must remain in place (as per the Polish Constitution one may add)

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

The Reichstag Warning ⚠️⚠️⚠️

By @TimothyDSnyder
THREAD ✔
On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began.
1/
#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. “There will be no mercy now,” he exulted. “Anyone standing in our way will be cut down.”
2/
The next day, at Hitler’s advice and urging, the #German #president issued a decree “for the protection of the people and the state.”

Sad to see this video promoting #Islamophobia / anti-Muslim sentiment from #Poland is still doing the rounds.

Sad they have weaponised #Jesus as a tool in their hostility.

"Poland to Muslims: Here, Jesus is our King so get out"
#Islamophobia in #Poland stems from an irrational hostility, based on
constructed myths and stereotypes about Muslims, largely pushed out by the mass media.

It has little to no basis in reality. (Say the experts)
Muslims in Poland constitute less than 0.1% of the total population, yet a recent survey found Poles believe 7% of their country is Muslim

The above video shows thousands marching on the streets to stop the 'Islamization of #Poland'

#Islamophobia = irrational fear & hostility

Juncker delivered his last #SOTEU2018 speech. Here are my major takeaways in a tweet #thread @CER_EU
1. As media had previously reported #Juncker decided not to focus on what his Commission achieved but on what still needs to be done to convince European citizens to say 'Yes' to the EU when they go to the polls next year.
2. I agree that it is not a good moment for pats on the back and I agree with #Juncker that member-states have in many respects held the Commission up from delivering on Commission's promises.

#Poland: Gov using Constitutional Court (Gov-controlled?) to block Supreme Court from suspending law giving Gov control of judiciary. Thoughts from EU law PoV 1/17
There are two legal challenges underway vs Poland Gov’s attempt to capture the judiciary: 1. PL Supreme Ct case 2. @EU_Commission infringement vs Poland. But this hasn’t been filed with CJEU yet 2/
(There’s a third challenge - Commission’s proposal for *political* action by Council under article 7 of Treaty of EU.) 3/

Hitler had planned for his invasion of #Poland to start #OTD on this day in 1939 - however he was momentarily spooked by the Anglo-Polish alliance and the prospect of Mussolini's arbitration and so decided to rescind the invasion order... #WW2
One detachment of #German soldiers, however, had already left their starting positions when the halt order came through, and could not be reached by radio. The group under Lt. Hans-Albrecht Herzner was invading Poland on their own.
Herzner's task was to capture and hold the strategically important rail tunnel beneath Jablunka Pass on the Polish frontier, and wait for the arrival of the German 10th Army, which he assumed would be following hard on his heels. #WW2

On this Day - 1939, the #Nazi-#Soviet Pact was announced in Moscow. As well as a 10-year Non-Aggression Pact, Stalin and Hitler agreed to divide central Europe between them. Here, Stalin toasts the pact with Hitler's photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann.
The Nazi-Soviet Pact gave #Hitler the green light for his plans to invade Poland: a week after its signature, German forces invaded their eastern neighbour. Poland's allies - Britain and France - responded by declaring war on Germany on 3 September. #WW2 in Europe had begun.
Two weeks later, on 17 September, #Stalin's Red Army also invaded #Poland, to claim the spoils promised by the Pact with Hitler. The two invading forces met at Brest-Litovsk, where a joint Red Army/Wehrmacht parade was held, with German and Soviet troops happily fraternising.

This includes add'n of military bunkers near Polish border, upgraded #NuclearWeapons bunker 8 miles away, & rail line possibly into Lithuania

Trumps penchant for #projection may explain his outspoken hostility twd #Montenegro & absurd accusations about them wanting to start #WWIII

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:
#ICC4Israel #EthnicCleaning #Occupation #BDS #Gaza
Source:palestineremembered.com/Acre/Famous-Zi…👈
#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
“We must expel the Arabs and take their places…”~#DavidBenGurion
Born in 1886 as David Green (Gruen) in Plonsk, #Poland. He is considered one of the three founding figures of Zionism beside #ChaimWeizmann & #Herzl.

#OTD in 1940, the #USSR began the third wave of deportations from occupied eastern #Poland. This deportation targeted refugees who had escaped from western to eastern Poland following the German invasion. #WWII
In December 1939, the #USSR and #Germany had agreed to repatriate refugees from their respective occupied territories. Those in the Soviet zone who wished to return to the German zone were required to register with the German authorities and vice versa. #WWII
164,000 people applied to leave the Soviet zone, but Germany only accepted 66,000. The #NKVD then ordered the deportation of refugees who applied to return to #Germany but were not accepted by the German authorities. #WWII

Just finished reading the Polish government’s non-paper on “judiciary regulations” revealed and critically analysed by @oko_press last Friday: oko.press/praworzadnosc-…

Thread (possibly long) to follow

#Poland #RuleofLaw #Article7
2/ My diagnosis in a nutshell: so-called "non-paper" is as ridiculously misleading as so-called “white paper” on so-called “reform” of Polish judiciary from last March



#TakingUsForFools (version 2.0)
3/ The silver lining: @TimmermansEU did not fall for so-called “changes” & “concessions” or "compromises" offered by Polish authorities which can be *at best* described as cosmetic or meaningless

#OTD in 1940, the #USSR began the second #WWII mass deportation of #Polish citizens from eastern Polish borderlands occupied by the Soviets on Sept.17, 1939. Polish civilians were deported by the USSR in four waves that occurred from Feb. 10, 1940 through mid-June 1941.
Each deportation had a distinctive character & targeted specific populations of Polish people in occupied eastern Poland.The deportation of April 13 targeted small farmers, tradesmen, civil servants, and the families of those who had been arrested or taken as POWs by the Soviets.
Many of those deported on April 13 were family members of the #Polish officers, policemen, and intelligentsia who were executed by the #USSR during the #Katyń massacre; roughly 80 percent of those included in this deportation were women and children. #WWII
