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

SIGNIFICANT:

#SYRIA #UAE #SAUDI ARE ON CUSP OF FORMING A NEW REGIONAL ALLIANCE TO DEFEAT THE IDEOLOGY AND EXPANSION OF THE MOSLEM BROTHERHOOD LONG CHAMPIONED AND SUPPORTED BY #QATAR #TURKEY

EXPECT REOPENING OF UAE EMBASSY IN DAMASCUS TO KICK START THE NEW REGIONAL SHIFT
2-This important shift comes on the back of intense and comprehensive meetings that took place recently in Abu Dhabi. The common objective of the parties is to stabilize #Syria and ensure the return of the secular state that existed prior to 2011.
3-There is no doubt that this new shift will create a challenge for Damascus when it comes to its relations with its long ally #Iran. At the same time, this shift will also be a perfect opportunity for Damascus to prove its independence when it comes to Foreign Policy

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.

“Their mother told detectives the day before the bodies were discovered, she received a call from an official at the Saudi Arabian Embassy, ordering the family to leave the U.S. because her daughters had applied for political asylum, New York police said” apnews.com/094178ff98c34d…
How did the #Saudi embassy know the sisters had applied for aayuum?
Whoever told the #Saudi embassy that Rotana and Tala has applied for asylum jeopardized their lives. There is a reason - a danger they are escaping - that someone applies for asylum. When you tell the embassy of their country of origin, you further endanger them.

This is Khashoggi Case False Narrative. #Khashoggi Relocated to #Turkey. He & his shady Turkish-Pakistani Partner (Arab Spring Operatives with Soros Fubding)With big $$$$$ Set Up NGO-Businesses Here. He bought a lavish flat in #Istanbul. Opened 3 hefty bank accounts. U Selling BS
How Do I Know All This You BS-Seller? I’ve been in #Turkey Reporting on #Khashoggi Case Since Day 1 via Pinned Thread @sibeledmonds (Check It Out). I have Top sources in #Turkey & within #US #Intel Community (Former & Present). And I contacted #Saudi Embassy in DC. You Selling BS

The bodies of 2 sisters from #Saudi Arabia were found in Hudson river, bound together by duct tape at their waists & ankles. Rotana Farea, 22, & Tala Farea, 16 “had recently requested asylum in the United States.” nytimes.com/2018/10/29/nyr… h/t @rerutled
👆🏽reminded me of #Saudi woman Dina Lasloom,who tried to escape forced marriage by going to #Australia for asylum but was detained at Manila airport until uncles came,beat her,tied mouth,arms,legs w/duct tape & dragged her onto plane home google.com/amp/s/www.nyti… #GenderApartheid
Death of 2 #Saudi sisters is highly suspicious. I hope coroner’s report is issued soon. I lived in Saudi Arabia as a teenager & for past 16yrs have been writing about #genderaprtheid in Saudi Arabia. Treatment of women is outrageous. And too often ignored or diminished.

1. #Saudi has a bad track record of announcing formal mechanisms to look into deaths of civilians at the hands of its own officers which have then utterly failed to credibly investigate those deaths. See #Yemen. See #Khashoggi.

justsecurity.org/61178/saudi-pl…
2. Each victim of an unlawful Saudi coalition strike in #Yemen is as worthy of concern as a Washington Post columnist. A groom and his wedding party. A child locked in jail. Villagers digging a well. Crowds shopping at a market. All killed or wounded in coalition bombings.
3. For years, the #Saudi coalition—armed and assisted by the #US—has killed and wounded thousands of civilians in Yemen, leaving behind a trail of death, destruction, and broken lives.

1) President Trump does politics.
I have to get to the truth.

Orange juice evening thread, #JamalKhashoggi
October 23, 2018.
2) This Khashoggi thing has become important for another reason.

I am here to get to the truth - I don't want a Deep State secretly running our lives.

That means: Not here to defend Trump - defend the government - defend the Jewish people or Israel - sell books.

No.
3) I am also not here to explain Trump - explain the government - explain the Jewish people or Israel - explain my motives.

If you don't want to read my stuff, that's fine.

Glad #Saudi troll farms & their connection to Saudi regime have been studied. I’ve experienced plenty attacks for my writing on women’s issues in #Saudi & my opposition to #Yemen war: 1 of most coordinated came after #Jamalkhashoggi shared 1 of my articles nytimes.com/2018/10/20/us/…
In February, #JamalKhashoggi kindly shared the Arabic version of an oped I wrote for Washington Post about #MosqueMeToo which I started for Muslim women to talk about sexual harassment and assault in Sacred spaces, including Hajj in Makkah, #Saudi Arabia
Immediately after Jamal shared my column, i was inundated with one of the worst and most coordinated attacks by #Saudi regime trolls I have ever experienced. For days. It was a window into how much shit he and other Saudis who are critical got and continue to get.

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.

BREAKING: #Saudi prosecutor confirms death of Jamal #Khashoggi.

Pre-planned scapegoat Deputy Chief of Intelligence General Assiri has been dismissed as well as MBS Adviser Saud Al Qahtani. Saudi investigators have detained 18 suspects in Khashoggi's murder.
@Joyce_Karam #Maddow
The Saudi Prosecutor claims a heated discussion between Jamal #Khashoggi & Saudi agents in Consul in Istanbul turned into quarrel and fist fighting which led to his death. Doesn't explain why the Saudi kill team brought a bone saw, though, does it?
#Maddow
A "fist fight" in which Jamal Khashoggi was accidentally decapitated & dismembered with a bone saw the Saudi agents just happened to bring along for a simple interrogation and/or rendition? Trump & Jared Kushner will totally go along with this BS.

#Saudi actors who ordered #Khashoggi's death were aware he wanted his divorce paper, but hadn't anticipated his fiancee's call to Aktay which had some swift consequences. Turkish authorities searched one of the planes leaving with part of the murder team, but found nothing. /1
"Turkish intelligence agency MIT decided to review an audio-visual feed fr inside the consulate"... Grisly details ... suggest that Khashoggi was tortured then killed soon after entering the consulate" /2 cnn.com/2018/10/19/mid…
Had Hatice Cengiz not been there to call Aktay, the Turks wouldn't have suspected as soon as they did, that #Khashoggi had been killed. The info. about that clandestine AV feed was leaked over the week as the Saudis were swift to deny & slow to cooperate with the investigation./3

Let this sink in...

Kush urged Trump to stand by MBS, & argued that outrage over Khashoggi’s brutal murder “will pass, like the kidnapping of Lebanon’s PM & the killing of a busload of children by a Saudi airstrike.

📌WH had TS SIGINT in advance of killing.
💣Complicit2💣

Saudi Arabia is putting money in Trump’s pocket. Is that shaping U.S. policy?

"It certainly looks that way to me," Trump said as he departed from Joint Base Andrews. "It's very sad. Certainly looks that way."

📌Rumor has it MBS & Kush chat via WhatsApp! #SIGINT

📌CT:”Trump (& some adult family) negotiated a deal w/ the Saudis and the Emiratis for 3.6 billion to get rid of Iran nuclear deal & reimpose sanctions.

The payment was made in two installments.

📌The first last year & the second earlier in 2018”

What happened to prominent journalist #JamalKhashoggi while he was abroad, has to make you ask what happens to #Saudis who aren’t prominent inside the kingdom and away from public scrutiny. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
“Talking costs you dearly now,” one Saudi academic said in August after declining to meet with a Bloomberg News reporter. #Saudi
The number of asylum-seekers from #Saudi Arabia with pending cases has more than doubled since Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman began rise to power: from 575 in 2015—the year MBS publicly began his rise to power—to 1,256 in 2017, according to the UN.

1-It’s very obvious that issue is not the disappearance of #JamalKhasoggi while Saudi is very concerned about the whereabouts and safety of Jamal. The story is much bigger than that The media hysteria and coordinated efforts by the leftist mainstream media, #Qatar and the leaks.
2- the mainstream Stream media is publishing stories based on Unverified leaks. I wonder why no one in the media contact Mr. #JamalKhoshoggi family or his ex wife or current wife. Why the Focus is only to the so called fiancé.
3- the amount of mess information coming out of #Turkey is very suspicious. 4 groups are working hard to destroy Saudi reputation, social and economic reforms. #qatar #MuslimBrotherhood #Turkey finally the international left.

It is all well & good that companies & lobbyists are reassessing #Saudi Arabia over reported murder of #JamalKhashogg. BUT! Where the fuck have all these people and firms been for decades? The violations of the #Saudi monarchy have never been a secret. nyti.ms/2CcsOjL
Glad to see people pay attention, finally, and I wish it hadn’t been over such a gruesome crime. I wish people and firms had started boycotting #Saudi royal family over its gender apartheid that affects all women there. Or the #Yemen war. Or jails full of activists. Or. And. Or.
This was my first oped about #Saudi Arabia for a US newspaper - ironically enough, The Washington Post. Fifteen schoolgirls had died in a fire because religious police wouldn’t let them out because the girls weren’t wearing a cloak and a headscarf washingtonpost.com/archive/opinio…

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

I have barely slept.I have been unable to stop thinking about #JamalKhashoggi. I knew him from when we both were columnists for #Saudi-owned Asharq al-Awsat b4 I was banned.We met just once, I think. But reports yest of his killing came same day as #Kavanaugh & my worlds collided
Trump has emboldened so many dictators,esp Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.With so much attention been sucked up by US,the killing of Jamal,who wasn’t an esp outspoken critic,is sure to embolden regimes further & signal to dissidents & opponents that their harm will go unnoticed
To think that you could go to your country’s consulate to get paperwork for an upcoming wedding and be killed and dismembered because of your writing is horrific. It’s evil. And to know that the regime responsible for that has a best friend in the most powerful country in earth!

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

Thread on #Saudi meddling in #Yemen's internal affairs. Listed and in chronological order. Keep this in mind, next time some nutjob on the news rants about supposed "Iranian meddling" in regards to Yemen.
- Saudi-Yemeni War of 1934, dispute over regional ownership ends with #Saudi Arabia annexing the Yemeni provinces of Najran, Jizan and Asir. Saudi Arabia held Hodeidah city occupied and threatened to cut off food supplies as blackmail.
- Saudi support for the Kingdom of Yemen during the 1962 Republican revolution. Imam Ahmad bin Yahya was dethroned because of corruption and for transforming the legitimate imamate into a monarchy. What followed was 5 years of brutal civil war.
