“After what looks like an almost certain failure to secure a majority coalition in Israel's Tuesday election…#Netanyahu didn't need anyone to tell him about the murmurings w/in #Likud that his own party should start thinking about a change in leadership.”

“The 69-year-old #Netanyahu, the longest-serving leader in #Israeli history, was seeking a fifth term in office but faced a stiff challenge from Benny #Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party.”

“Yisrael #Beytenu chairman Avigdor #Liberman promised on Tuesday night that his party would fulfil its campaign vow to ensure the establishment of a national-unity government without the ultra-Orthodox and religious-Zionist parties.”

Since January, nine places owe me money for my work. This includes public universities and media organizations. Both, temples of learning. More than not getting paid, my disappointment emanates from the radio silence to the email, text, phone reminders. #FreelancersInIndia
And trust me, it is very humiliating to keep sending reminders for petty amounts. When you talk about press freedom, do give a thought to the self respect and integrity of the journalists you are engaging for work. #IndependentJournalists
There have been instances in the past when freelancers who demanded timely payments were labelled as troublemakers and not commissioned work again. Do think of the caste-class-gender hierarchies you are building when you expect the freelancers to not remind you of payments #Media

I finally had a chance to go through 150+ packages of #books sent to me (yikes)! TYSM to the various publishers for keeping me in the loop on the new #scholarship in #BlackStudies, #History & #Gender Studies.🙏🏾Here's a thread of a few books I am very eager to read this fall.🙌🏾📚

I will be tweeting and reporting what I saw and heard in Srinagar and not what I wanted to see and hear. #Article370
Some voices:
"They have taken away our crown. We don't want repeat of 90s but the situation is such that guns will be picked on ration cards"
"They cannot protect women in rest of the country and they want to protect us?" #kashmir #Article370
"They talk about poverty? Every one here owns a house.". #Kashmir #Article370

On the day when #ShyamaPrasadMukharjee was arrested in #Kashmir and died in custody protesting different constitution for Kashmir, let’s remember an aspect, as much in fashion as it is forgotten. On this day when #PriyankaSharma is in Jail for meme of @MamataOfficial . #FoE
Why #Nehru became so uneasy with #Freedom which was just won in one year that he wanted to amend the constitution? Mostly because of few articles in the press, critical of government which he tried to ban, but couldn’t due to fundamental rights. But that was one reason.
One big reason was #NehruLiyaqat pact. Many nationalists, including Dr Mukharjee considered partition temporary aberration and believed that nation will eventually become one. Nehru didn’t like that and a speech which could cause “excitement in neighbouring nation” was included

So this is where we are now @gop? #meinkampf? Republican Mo Brooks reading Hitler quotes on the floor of the House. I would like to ask @KevinMKruse to dig in, but I will share some facts. google.com/amp/s/amp.busi…
There is so much irony, especially when you consider “alternative facts” was contrived by the #Trump team to describe their own false statements. google.com/amp/s/www.psyc…
Another part of concern is that Hitler and the Nazi approach to the #press was to create fear, vilify them, and then brutalize anyone in disagreement. The press truly was the enemy of the propaganda machine. encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/art…

I'm all for putting out the #TrumpsterFire. But lets stop pretending it's a mental health problem. Lying is not a mental health problem. It's behavioral and he's been benefiting from those lies which reinforces the behavior. Want to extinguish the fire? Stop printing his lies.
The #TrumpsterFire is a classic Narcissist who needs constant feedback. Negative is just as beneficial for him as positive. Stop giving it. The #Press needs to do what victims of Narcissistic abuse do - go #NoContact or #GrayRock.
Be indifferent to his ridiculousness. Attack policy and ignore him.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Thought I would share some history of our #Press and perhaps some of the ppl behind it so we can understand how it became #FakeNews "The first American press was the partisan press, underwritten and dictated by the political parties."
"The third wave in American journalism—that of the foundation press—may be taking form now thanks to Bay Area billionaires Herbert and Marion Sandler. Waving $10 million that they promise to replenish annually"
"The Sandlers have founded the nonprofit ProPublica to produce investigative journalism. (Usual suspect the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is also chipping in some money to the ProPublica kitty, as are the Atlantic Philanthropies and the JEHT Foundation.)"

Pay attention to this. This is not just a UK problem, this is something that is going to affect the entire world. And the next time I hear someone extol the virtues of multicultural whatever in my country, I will commend to them this passage.
This isn’t assimilation or heterogeneity or a celebration of diversity. Those terms refer to something that is not the case before us now. Do not insult my intelligence or our friendship by suggesting that I don’t understand the difference between invasion and legal assimilation.

This!
As @theresa_may tells @HouseofCommons it's 'highly likely' Moscow ordered the attack on former Russian spy in Salisbury & most MPs show support to HMG to take strong action against Russia together with West & EU...
Remember this from @Nigel_Farage?
theguardian.com/politics/2014/…
What's the common point between:
- Farage: theguardian.com/politics/2014/…
- Le Pen: ft.com/content/010eec…
- Germany's AfD: time.com/4955503/german…
- Holland's Geert Wilders: forbes.com/sites/melikkay…
- Italy's Lega Nord: ft.com/content/0d33d2…
- Hungary's Orban: thedailybeast.com/how-putins-usi…
European far-right parties & their populist leaders love the idea they are the real & only patriots. Usually great orators, they focus on negative emotions: fear, resentment, nostalgia of a time that never was. But ask them about their relationship with Russia and they go silent!

No surprise,
Posing at, attending #Burundi radicals opposition meetings, @RFI's @rutwesdras confirms (again) relentless anti-ruling party bias that has been noticed throughout @RFI's coverage of #Burundi

Dear @rutwesdras @AFP @AFPAfrica, @RFIAfrique @RFI and others,
will you update your article on #Burundi refugees who recently came from #Rwanda with comments of said refugees ?
or are you planning a full article on this matter ?
Video testimonies of refugees COMING BACK to #Burundi were completely ignored by the same medium
🤔but today, -written- refugees testimonies suddenly matter again to @RFI @AFPAfrica @rutwesdras
