One failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza caused:
- The return of the "Axis of the resistance" stronger than ever, recovering losses caused by the war in #Syria
- The embarrassment to Arab states rushing towards #Israel
- A positive push to the Arab population
- the fall of Lieberman
The #US and #SaudiArabia plan to "sell the Palestinians" failed by a failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza. @realDonaldTrump is tasting his first defeat in #Palestine.

The performance of #Gaza showed that #Israel is not ready for war against #Lebanon too.
#Israel should have limited itself to talk about its power rather than use it and fail.

Now we hear: #israel Iron Dome is not hermetic.

400 rockets launched and only 120 intercepted. How about 150,000 rockets and missiles launched by #Hezbollah?

#Lebanon can be tranquil.

Thread 👇triggered many questions:

1-How can Syrian leadership resume relations with #Saudi after its support of the Opp?

2-What about #Iran and will Tehran feel betrayed?

3-What about #Russia and how might this potential shift impact Turkish/Russian relations?

Answers ==>
2-On #Saudi : No question that Riyadh/Damascus rapprochement is difficult to foresee. Note that this shift is being led #UAE and not Saudi. Riyadh is expected to follow and yes, reluctantly. Damascus is just as easy about this given Saudi’s early support of the Opp. BUT ==>
3-When discussing Riyadh/Damascus, it’s critical to think about Qatari/Saudi schism. If forced to choose, who should Damascus side with? Answer: #Saudi . Why? #Qatar is ardent supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood (enemy of both Damascus & Riyadh). Doha is also still supporting Opp

1/ You might agree or not with this author analysis' on Iran's stance on #Khashoggi but it is true that those called #Iran reformists in the West, Khatami and then Rouhani, sought better relations with #SaudiArabia, just to be rebuffed. mondediplo.com/outsidein/why-…
2/ This really calls into question #Iran reformists' project of engagement with the West because as long as the West is wedded to the #Saudi monarchy, this monarchy will make everything in its power to marginalize #Iran for fear it might replace it as a regional power.
3/ Unlike #Russia who has been torn between East & West because of its geography, #Iran has always looked West, because of its elite, revolutionary or not. Maybe now it is time to look firmly East and never look back again.

The inevitable end of violent political rhetoric is political violence, or, known by another term, terrorism.

The violent rhetoric crossed the threshold into reality after 14 packages containing pipe bombs were intercepted & 11 people were slaughtered.

When the Russians were predicting the "creeping removal of sanctions," this is probably what they had in mind.
Bridenstine visited #Russia earlier this month. Apparently, one meeting with Rogozin was not enough.

Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

It seems awfully convenient that #MagnitskyAct guy (& probable #EdmondSafra murderer-hirer) @BillBrowder & many of his neocon playthings — like @LindseyGrahamSC — are trying to pin this on Crown Prince #MBS. I smell a shakedown. Bad thing for #HumanRights when only money matters.
… one thing that people don’t realize about #Magnitsky & the #MagnitskyAct is that there’s no more crucial hub of state-sanctioned money laundering than @TheJusticeDept’s @SDNYnews. That’s where Wall St. is (& all the #FININT collection that goes w/ it).
… it’s important to understand #Browder’s connections to the #London-based #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Company — #HSBC — a bank heavily dependent on Communist #China which functions as his private #laudromat. The #Khashoggi case takes the focus off them.

One major #Russian🇷🇺social-media theme was to exploit white supremacy👉🏼trolling NFL protests against #racist policing, #immigration, the Confederate flag & “the #Charlottesville ‘Unite The Right’ rally” that killed Heather Heyer in Aug'17.

Goal: INFLAME and DIVIDE US.🤬

THREAD on #Russia/n Orthodox Church (ROC) breaking off “eucharistic communion" w/ #Constantinople Patriarchate.
1.CAVEAT: I don’t claim to be an expert in church relations but being Orthodox Christian & working on #Russia-related politics/policies I feel entitled to share few of my own observations esp in the face of mounting ignorance or propaganda from some of the usual "Russia watchers"
2. Within next days you will hear 3 dominating narratives on what came to be called "the new schism":
A.Patriarch Kirill is KGB (somewhat true).
B. ROC is a tool of #Kremlin (true).
C. Conflict emerged as aftermath of “#Russia trying to make #Ukraine submissive” (yes & no)

My prediction: #PreexistingConditionRodney will boast about his nonbinding preexisting condition resolution that never made it out of committee. And that his wife had cancer. #IL13Debate #ACA #healthcare
Davis says he fixed the "broken tax code" without mentioning the increase in deficit spending and that the tax cuts went primarily to the rich.
