A thread: This was admittedly not the warm welcome I envisioned when I joined @scbwi months ago as an inspiring children's book author in the midst of completing her first manuscript. I have long dreamed of being a writer & after many detours & an abundance of rich experiences...
I was thrilled beyond measure to pursue this dream in earnest. I enrolled in that children's book writing class at @gothamwriters I had been eyeing for years. After workshopping my first picture book draft, I joined the @scbwi to find a community of children's book creators.
To my knowledge, @scbwi was THE organization for all things #kidlit. Many folks in the industry had suggested joining. Why not? Aside from the fact that I often don't feel "seen" in such spaces & that the $100 fee felt like a "splurge" to an ECE who was between jobs at the time.

La chambre de l'instruction de la cour d'appel de Paris vient de prononcer la nullité du rapport d'expertise rédigé par Daniel Zagury. Une contre-expertise a été ordonnée. Le rappel des faits ⬇️
lexbase.fr/revues-juridiq…
#Ramadan #TariqRamadan : Pour mémoire, le psychiatre Daniel Zagury estimait, dans son rapport, que les plaignantes étaient "sous l'emprise" de Tariq Ramadan quand elles ont eu des relations sexuelles avec lui. C'était une pièce maîtresse de l'accusation.
20minutes.fr/justice/278295…
#Ramadan #TariqRamadan : Mais la défense de l'islamologue avait demandé sa nullité, arguant que l'expert psychiatre avait dépassé le cadre de sa mission en rencontrant physiquement les plaignantes alors que les juges ne lui avaient demandé que de se prononcer sur le dossier...

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine

I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

Sarà, 16 anni, ultimo giorno di #Ramadan a #Gaza
“Abbiamo cancellato tutte le feste e le celebrazioni xché non possiamo accettare l’idea di festeggiare, mangiare biscotti e seguire tutte le tradizioni come facciamo ogni anno
Stiamo semplicemente insieme e ci diciamo quanto 1/3
siamo importanti l’uno x l’altro
Niente di speciale quest’anno
L’attacco dell’occupazione sta causando vittime tra i civili innocenti
Non posso camminare semplicemente x strada rischiando che succeda anche a me. Io temo x la mia vita
Vedo continuamente cadaveri, praticamente 2/3
tutti i giorni
Vedo sempre più ambulanze e sento le bombe e gli aerei sopra di noi
Ci sparano addosso tutti i giorni da quando questa guerra è cominciata
La mia famiglia sta cercando di stare insieme, così che, se moriamo, almeno saremo insieme”

Las grandes mentiras del actual conflicto ISRAEL VS HAMAS.

Sale #hilo

#PalestineUnderAttack #PalestinaLibre #IsraelUnderAttack Israel y Palestina #GazaUnderAttack #HamasTerrorists
ISRAEL COMENZÓ LA ESCADA IRRUMPIENDO EN #ALAQSA. FALSO: Israel incluso prohibe a los judíos rezar ahí (lugar santo judío también), solo entró cuando empezaron los disturbios. Orquestado previamente por los fanáticos palestinos que profanan el lugar llenandolo de piedras y armas.
ISRAEL COMENZÓ EL CONFLICTO EXPULSANDO PALESTINOS DE SUS CASAS EN #SHEIKHJARRAH. FALSO. Se trata de propiedades Israel expropiadas por Jordania cuyos inquilinos palestinos dejaron de pagar el alquiler y están en juicio por eso. Problema de morosidad, nada de nacionalismo.

Au vu des grotesques confusions, inversions de perspective, et préjugés que je vois dans les questions qu'on m'adresse, je voudrais faire un petit topo chronologique sur la crise actuelle en #Israël.

Je vous laisse prendre note des dates des dépêches en sources.
Il y a d'abord les tant attendues élections de l'Autorité palestinienne. Ça fait 15 ans que son Président actuel, Mahmoud Abbas, se comporte dans les faits comme un dictateur, au prétexte que face à lui, le "modéré", ce ne sont que des groupes terroristes, #Hamas principalement.
Sauf qu'Abbas va perdre, or il veut s'accrocher, donc il trouve des prétextes pour repousser les élections. Il y en a un tout trouvé : "Jérusalem-Est".

Cette partie de la ville, disputée, n'est pas officiellement (ni officieusement) sous contrôle palestinien.

D’abord occupée par les Philistins puis par des Israélites, Babyloniens, Perses et Grecs, la Palestine est longtemps une province romaine divisée en deux parties : une Palaestina Prima et une Palaestina Tertia.

⬇️
C'est en 15H (636G) que la Palestine passe alors sous le giron de l’islam, après la bataille de Yarmouk et l'arrivé dans la région du calife 'Umar Ibn al-Khaṭṭāb. Elle fait partie de la province du Bilad al-Sham (la Grande Syrie), de nombreux Arabes s’y installent..

⬇️
et à Jérusalem est construit le Dôme du Rocher (la première grande œuvre d'architecture islamique) et la mosquée Al-Aqsa. On parle alors de Jund Filasṭīn. Ses principales cités sont Ramla (fondée par le calife Sulaymān), Gaza, Naplouse, Césarée, Jaffa et Rafah.

I Am Not A Muslim!!

But, every #Ramadan I listen to "Islam, Slavery and the African" by Abdullah Hakim Quick

Many Arabians ☪️ try to whitewash slavery in the Islamic world.

This man (Muslim man) does not.

He does not bend a knee to #ArabSupremacy.

#Ramadan is such a wonderful time to talk about how Arab Muslims invaded, conquered, (and plundered) large swaths of Africa.
We'll discuss the good and the bad.

When the #COVID_19 #pandemic forced mosques to close during #Ramadan last year, #Muslims could not break fast and pray together.

However, dates were a constant in every home.

latimes.com/california/sto…
After fasting from sunrise to sunset during Ramadan, Muslims turn first to the fruit, a practice believed followed by Muhammad.

On Twitter, some joke that it’s the only month of the year where they have a date every night.

latimes.com/california/sto…
For Ahmad Fejleh, who grew up in Syria, the fruit has been a fixture although his route to date farming was circuitous.

His connection to dates prompted a move to the Imperial Valley in 2007 to start AYA Farms, a now 75-acre date palm orchard.

Th 20th of #Ramadan marks the conquest of Makkah: A thread
Before the Conquest:

The Treaty of Ḥudaybiyyah was written. It was a peace agreement between the Muslims in Madīnah and the Quraysh in Makkah.

The treaty would provide peace between each other for a period of 10 years.
The treaty allowed other tribes of Arabia to choose to be allies with either the Quraysh or the Muslims.

This meant that if there were any attacks or fighting, the allies would have the right to help and fight for the group they gave their support to.

Ibn al-Qayyim (ra) said in “Badā’i al-Fawā’id” (1/55):

“If #LaylatulQadr comes once in a year, I would do Qiyām al-Layl the entire year so that I acquire Laylatul Qadr! So, what is the problem if it’s only (restricted to) ten nights?!”

#Ramadan
#Greater_than_1000_months
‘A’isha (ra) said, “I said, ‘Messenger of Allah (as), if I know what night the #Night_of_Power is, what should I say during it?’ He said:

اللْهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُعَنِّي

‘Say: “O Allah, You are Pardoning and you love pardon, so pardon me.”‘” (Tirmidhi)
“Servants of Allāh; indeed #Ramadān is resolute upon departure...therefore savour of it that which remains of the small number of nights & days and see it off with righteous deeds so that it may be a witness for you before Allah."

There is something glorious about the images that @zoom_earth captures. I especially like the large symmetrical and fairly stationary area of cloud in the North Atlantic in this image.

Today's May 1sy Forecasts for #Ethiopia and #MiddleEast rainfall follow.
The main action today was in Europe where the strengthening #WestAfricaMonsoon #WMA has today had a spectacular impact on European Weather.

A detailed thread covering those events can be found here.
Today's North African long range (12 day) rain forecast is taken from the Korean KMA model as it looks to be a lot closer to what we are seeing in the skies today.

[1/5] Renungan Surah Yusuf.

Nabi Yusuf dipenjarakan bersama dua orang pemuda. Antara mereka bertiga baginda ialah yang paling mulia dan tinggi darjatnya.

Tapi dengan segala kemuliaan yang baginda miliki Allah telah mengeluarkan dua orang permuda itu terlebih dahulu. Image
[2/5] Tetapi lelaki yang pertama keluar untuk menjadi hamba manakala lelaki yang kedua keluar untuk dibunuh.

Sedangkan Nabi Yusuf menunggu dengan lama, sehingga bertahun tahun dan akhirnya baginda keluar, bukan untuk menjadi insan biasa tetapi menjadi pemerintah Mesir!
[3/5] Buat mereka yang sedang ternanti nanti impian dan doa mereka untuk dikabulkan, renungilah surah yang indah ini.

Apa sahaja nikmat yang telah Allah hilangkan daripada kita itu adalah hikmahNya.

Apa sahaja nikmat yang telah Allah kekalkan pada kita itu adalah rahmatNya.

The situation in #Pakistan. A quick update.

PM #ImranKhan's government is shaken by inflation and shortages, some out of its control but compounded by poor planning & governance. Here, long queues can be seen in some cities for govt-rationed sugar & flour in #Ramadan.
#Pakistan is currently divided between urgent issues and sideshows. Government is finally expediting vaccinations; the professionals at @OfficialNcoc are at it. But Govt also continues to push PM #ImranKhan's agenda against #France, #West on #Islamophobia.
One of the biggest sideshows in #Pakistan today is the explosive interview of a former spy chief who has blown the lid off alleged abuse of spy services by PM #ImranKhan to target his political opponents. Check this trend: #BashirMemonLeaks.
