1. "More people say openly that #Erdogan's attitude reminds them of #Hitler."
Several hundred people, including several dozen civilians, have been killed in #Syria since the beginning of the #Turkish attack. About 200,000 people had to leave their homes.
2. Drastic executions of civilians are carried out. #ISIS fighters are escaping from prisons with the help of the #Turkish army. The whole world watches Erdogan's actions in disbelief and fear. Many countries and organizations are taking action against the Turkish operation.
3. #Trump, who probably wants to regain his image by imposing sanctions on three Turkish ministers, also belongs to them.
In addition, #Turkey may face further consequences:
#UEFA is sharply responding to the political provocations of Turkish players in the match against France.

1/9 There is something off about the #KurdishBetrayal narrative being used to describe US actions in Syria. My feed is full of hashtags denouncing the fact that #TrumpBetrayedKurds by withdrawing US troops based in #NorthEasternSyria
2/9 To be betrayed implies that there were grounds for trust to begin with.
Yes, Kurdish and US forces were briefly allied against the common enemy of the #IslamicState. But that was an enemy in part created by a catastrophic US foreign policy in the Middle East
3/9 The US are now doing what they have always done - including when they implemented policies that gave rise to IS - acting in their own self interest, without any foresight beyond election cycles, & without concern for the implications for people fleeing their burning homes

Urging Calm Amidst Hysteria On #Turkey #Syria- 1- Without explicit green-light from #USA it will be a very limited (for show) maneuver; 2- This is being used here in #Turkey for temporary political gain (uniting the opposition with current admin); 3- #Russia also has put limits
Take in the macro picture (Forest instead of the trees): A major offensive by #Turkey is opposed by: #USA #Syria #Russia & #Iran. Only a brief limited muscle-flexing show is allowed. #GeopoliticalTheater
Here it is #Turkey “Still Preparing”. For the last 5 days, 1 minute they say “we are going in shortly, as in the next 24 hrs”, the next minute “we are preparing” or “we are waiting for XYZ ...”. The written on stone “Sep 30” deadline in #Syria expired 9 days and 11 hrs ago.

Who would've thought a film shot on some mobile phones would take your breath away. #MidnightTraveler is astonishing, heart grabbing, without one dull minute. It's the story of an Afghan refugee family on the run to safety over three years, which they filmed on their own phones.
You can't help feel rage when you see the two little girls trying to play with the soccer ball within what is essentially a maximum-security prison of high concrete walls and barbed wire In Hungary.
But it's not all outrage. The film records the dark humor, danger & boredom of life on the run. The little girls sing & play games in a smuggler's taxi with their dad locked in the trunk for safety as they pass through Taliban territory where dad has a death sentence on his head.

#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention coe.int/en/web/istanbu… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

Globally there are more than 65 million displaced people/ #refugees. A vast majority of these are feeing wars, conflicts and gross human rights abuses. Most of the refugees are hosted by countries outside Europe. /1
#Oughterard #DirectProvision #Ireland
Some refugee hosting nations are among the poorer countries. #Turkey #Lebanon #Bangladesh #Jordan #Egypt #Sudan #Pakistan #Uganda #Iran #Ethiopia host majority of the global #refugees /2
When someone is fleeing war or torture or human rights abuses, the first and foremost duty of humanity is to open our doors to refugees. No good to let people die at our doorsteps while we discuss where and how #AsylumSeekers should be hosted.

Why aren't Americans taking about the foreign influence in the US government that continues to send our men and woman to fight immoral wars?

#Trump when he campaigned for president, before he decided to let Adelson fund his campain!

Adelson was one of the biggest donors to Trumps presidential campain. Adelsons company saved 670 million dollars from the massive republican tax break. Adelson did not support the Iran deal & wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

Adelson has a direct line to #potus!

Adelson has private in-person meetings & phone conversations about once a month with #Trump!

Adelson used his access to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and cut aid to Palestinians.

Tomorrow Sept.16 Ankara to host trilateral #Russia-#Iran-#Turkey summit on #Syria. It is expected to announce quite important decisions on, e.g. finalization of the Constitutional Committee & political process in general, #Idlib, return of #refugees, humanitarian aid. Stay tuned.
#Putin just landed in #Ankara for trilateral #Syria summit. Apart of #Syria related issues #Russia, #Iran & #Turkey will likely to discuss the recent attack on #SaudiArabia oil facilities which led to 19% increase of Brent price & will likely increase regional tensions.
#Putin & #Erdogan just finished bilateral talks. Instead of planned hour-long meeting they spent 2 hrs.
Topics discussed are quite evident judging by #Russia's lineup:
- #Lavrov
- FP aide Ushakov
- energy minister Novak
- defense minister #Shoigu
- #Syria special envoy Lavrentiev

THE #Minnesota DHS MISMANAGEMENT OF CITIZENS FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS GOES TOO FAR.

SENIORS SUFFER WHILE #Refugees
LIVE THE HIGH LIFE.

alphanewsmn.com/how-does-minne…
Benson recently wrote an op-ed in the Star Tribune where she outlined how DHS has lost $300 million in taxpayer funds, via “error or fraud,” over the past three years.
As examples, Benson writes about how DHS screwed up Medicaid and MinnesotaCare eligibility in 2016, and ended up owing the federal government $271 million. Both Medicaid (Medical Assistance) and MinnesotaCare are means-tested programs to provide healthcare to lower-income

#TheSquad hates YOU and @POTUS Trump !!!
Is your memory failing you my fellow Americans ? 🤔
Islam is about world dominance under their ideology.
Their are no friends of Islam, only allegiance to the Koran which sanctions all pictured here, jihad. If you are a Christian or Jew / (infidel) in their care, you are 💀.

Mousa: We are not here today to send messages to the international community or to denounce the crimes that are being committed in full view. The intl community has proven not only that it does not want to hear or see what is happening in #Syria but that it is completely paralyze
Despite that, many Syrians are still carrying, in their minds and hearts, this great revolution and the cause of a people who wanted to get rid of tyranny and faced the whole world to get freedom and decent life
One of our top priorities remains the issue of #detainees. We shall not forget their families and their loved ones who are waiting to meet them or at least know their fate

Shame on DeepState #ForeignPolicy Journal. For Years #Turkey has been hosting 3+ Million #refugees from #Syria (Not like EU concentration camps accepting a few thousands!). They deported a few 1000s without documents & this attack?! - - - foreignpolicy.com/2019/08/08/tur…
An Amazing Example Of Distorted, Spun & Twisted Reporting for “Targeted” Attacks Against #Turkey. #FP should ask #EU & #USA: How many refugees from #Syria Are you willing to host & house in US/EU? And then print the “official response” for all to see!!!!!
Let’s Get The Facts Straight On #Syria Refugees In #Turkey: 1-Millions provided Housing;2- Millions Provided Healthcare; 3- Million+ W/ Work Permits; 4-All Children Provided With Public Education; 5- 10s Of 1000s In #Turkey Universities ...6- With 99% of #Turks Hospitable to Them

'Make America Genocide Again: concentration camps, corruption, and the fall of a nation' via @TheChaosPress. #AbolishICE #ICEraids #ConcentrationCamps #Refugees chaos.press/2019/08/03/mak…
@TheChaosPress Genocide and Ethnic cleansing do not happen overnight nor in secret, it is a very public and open process that often takes place after years and even decades of preparation and normalization before it is carried out. 1/
@TheChaosPress This can be identified early on through public acts of state violence or policies targeting unwanted or undesired groups followed by an increase of racist, misogynistic, or nationalist rhetoric becoming mainstream and widespread throughout a country. 2/

1/ I read lot about the psycholocal troubles let by the war. I never slept good, more 1 year after escape Syria's war.And when I sleep, my night are haunt by the war, I do lot of nightmares most of time I am arrested by the Syrian regime.
@sahloul
I also dream of some people who where killed, I dream about shelling, the war never left me. I will not find peace in turkey, because there is actually no hope of good future, Without work, there is no possibility to consider anything. Situation is even worse these last days
Because, i fear to be arrested by the Turkish authorities. So i guess it's normal that I feel depressed sometimes. I just wonder when it will change. How much years. The children who have seen people killed next them, who have live same as me,who have no psychological help

1/n
A thread:
Illuminating #Bible passages on how a #pagan deserves only deceit, dissimulation and to be taken advantage of - even when he extends help.

Even if fellow-#Abrahamics are mortal enemies, a Pagan who extends shelter to one never really wins their loyalty or trust.
2/n
The scene: David flees Israelite territory. King Saul is trying to kill him, no matter how much David tries to prove his bona fides.

David + 600 soldiers (w/ families) take shelter with Philistine King Achish of Gath - pagans the Israelites hate.

biblegateway.com/passage/?searc…
3/n
Pagan king Achish grants David a town to settle in, hoping to win favour through hospitality. And perhaps driving a wedge in Israel.

Instead, behind his host's back, David and his men sack and massacre nearby pagan settlements - making sure that the king doesn't hear of it.

What we're doing on our border will be remembered as a blight in history. The fact that it has to be said to not forget that these are human beings. Like everyone else, the vast majority of these people are just that, people. #refugees #ImmigrantsHaveRights #ConcentrationCampsUSA
They want to have safety, dignity, not to have to fear for their families, food, water. They're not demons, vicious animals, or parasites - just desperate people suffering greatly. They aren't coming here out of malice against us. They're just humans who want to to survive.
Our government has dehumanized these people. They demonize their motives, so much so that we act as though they: women, children, men, the elderly - deserve to suffer. Instead of just deriding them let's consider:

This is 6-year-old Omar Faisal. He has just recovered from a bout of pneumonia. And today, June 20, #WorldRefugeeDay he is returning to the plastic and bamboo home he shares with his #Rohingya parents & siblings in one of the world's largest refugee camps - in #Bangladesh
He is very happy as you can see from his pic.
Omar has a big challenge in front of him. Children with his condition, hydrocephaly, do not fare well if not treated early. Luckily, Omar can still talk ( he talks a lot!) and still has his sight. #WorldRefugeeDay
In #Myanmar, there was no opportunity for Omar to seek medical help. His parents even traveled to #Bangladesh when he was one but were thwarted by the large fee demanded by the hospital. Now Omar & his family are #refugees after the #Rohingya crisis of 2017. #WorldRefugeeDay

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!
