#RyanDawson: ".. Why is #Turkey so beholden to #Israel? I like you to see this. I has over half-a-million views.

..Why is there conflict in #Syria, and why is there really a target on #Iran? If you stop thinking about>
it in terms of #US-#interest, the #puzzle is very easy. The US acts for only one state's interest, and that's #Israel.

#AIPAC purchased #Congress with a foreign government's financial backing.

Since we learn nothing in #school,

Pipelines are not just for transporting oil and gas, they are for political #leverage as well. Each country a #pipeline passes through

Size Orta Doğu ve dünyadaki genel kaosun daha iyi anlaşılması için NeoCon Hıristiyanlarının, Siyonist Yahudilerin ve Müslümanların inanç sistemlerini açıklayayım.
Bu tamamen ekonomi ile dini bir savaştır, siyaset ve diger herşey bu savaşta ikincil rol oynayandır.

1. dünya savaşından önce Theodore Herzl ve Siyonist Yahudiler Osmanlı kontrolü altındakı Filistin'de Tapınak olacak olan "Mesih" leri altında dünyaya hükmedecekleri bir devlet istiyorlardı.
İsrail mücadelesi başlıyor…
Siyonistlerin hayallerini gerçek yapmak adına birkaç şeye ihtiyacı vardı ..
1. Amerika Birleşik Devletleri'nin tam kontrolünü ele almak. 1913-14 te zaten yapmışlardı
2. Osmanlı imparatorluğunu yok etmeleri gerekiyordu.

A Turkish soldier who was part of the #DersimMassacre by #Turkey describes the wholesale slaughter of #Kurds in 1937-1938.
3 parts to this video. Please watch and share #TwitterKurds
Reports suggest that around 40,000 #Kurds were killed during this period. However, due to the government destroying identity documents, the number is likely to be far greater. Many many more became displaced. Women and children were raped by Turkish soldiers systematically.
#Turkey has never allowed the #Kurds even one moment of peace in their history. Turkish history is painted with Kurdish blood. The only way we can guarantee this doesn't continue to happen is by governing ourselves in a free state of our own. #IndependentKurdistan

Ok, while everybody is talking about #China, #Russia or #Cuba in the context of #coronadiplomacy, let's take a closer look at #Turkey. Who received Turkey's help? What did it consist of? Thread.
So it seems, naturally, that China was the first one to receive Turkish help in February. It consisted of: medicines, medical mascs, googles and gloves. Also in February 🇹🇷 evacuated from 🇨🇳 - in addition to the Turks - citizens of 🇦🇿, 🇦🇱 and 🇬🇪.
Then, in the first half of March, 🇹🇷 sent help to Bulgaria. According to @DailySabah 🇧🇬 "bought 50,000 masks, 100,000 protective garments and 100,000 safety goggles from Turkey". According to @anadoluajansi, 🇹🇷, together with Turkic Council countries, sent aid also to Hungary.

1. In Reza #Zarrab sequel, defendant #Halkbank, #Turkey's state controlled bank's attorneys King & Splaulding filed a motion to withdraw. Declaration says Robert Cary of William & Connolly filed appearance but I haven't seen it Cary handles attorney malpractice and white collar.
2. I don't practice in criminal court. A long time ago a competent criminal defense tax attorney told me that if you're the lawyer who was around when the alleged crime occurred it was likely the Govt would seek to get a ruling the attorney-client privilege did not apply.
3. In that case the former attorney could be compelled to testify against their recently former client. Possible that K&S was served with a grand jury subpoena or knows it's coming soon.

#COVIDー19 crisis response is another area where the performance of Prime Minister #ImranKhan's cabinet is inadequate & late resulting in a rapid surge in #coronavirus cases+infections. His TV address was unimpressive. @ImranKhanPTI can learn from @realDonaldTrump & @NYGovCuomo.
Unlike #USA+#Europe, #Pakistan is right next door to two epicenters of #COVIDー19 spread: #China & #Iran. China was initially late but later took impressive steps to contain the spread, incl quarantining #Pakistani citizens. Unlike Iran where Pk citizens visited in large numbrs.
What steps did PM #ImranKhan take for a #CoronaFreePakistan when it was obvious #Pakistan faced #COVIDー19 spread threat from #Iran; & when it became obvious that almost every neighbor incl #Iraq+#Turkey+#Gulf traced 1st cases to Iran & when #Tehran failed to warn neighbors?

At the end of February thousands of people stuck in #Turkey gathered at #Greece's land and sea border with the hope of safe passage...…

...what they found was an extreme level of violence from police and military (teargas, water cannons and gunfire), an illegal suspension of asylum rights, daily pushbacks, and inhumane treatment such as stripping, beating and detention without food and water.

BVMN have co-authored a comprehensive report alongside several organisations @mobileinfoteam @teammareliberum @NoNameKitchen1 and @VanInfo, covering systematised rights abuses targeting people-on-the-move, both at maritime and terrestrial crossing points into Greece.

1/8: I handed over papers proving that I am a journalist, a former detainee by the #Syrian intelligence, at risk because of my work, and told him "leave me be."

The #Greek policeman said with sarcasm: "who would read or care about this?” I will not forget this all my life.
2/8: In very difficult circumstances I was arrested in closed camps, written on them UNHCR but run by the army and the police.

I was sent back to #Turkey, where I lost my way home due to the torture that I had been subjected to by European Union special forces.
3/8 "We hope you are fine.We reported the same problem. At every opportunity we intervened with EU leaders to urge them to take on their responsibility of receiving asylum seekers," @hrw said.

I am not hysterical or fearful when it comes to #CoronaVirus. What I am “Truly” Concerned About & Afraid of: is “How” the Powers & Governments Can Utilize & Use it- and the “Things” they can Do to us Utilizing it. Does That Make Sense?
#CoronaVirus: The Timing of it makes me think. The Reaction & Associated Actions to it Make me think Twice and Harder. And the possible “Man-Made” (Non-Organic) consequences and results make me highly concerned. Hope you catch my drift.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

THREAD ❇️A statement was released today by Activists and Civil society Organisations in north west #Syria (1)

They voiced concerns about the fact that the #Russia - #Turkey deal is unclear about the fate of the areas North of the M4 Roadway.
As activists and civil society organisations in north west #Syria we remain against handing over any liberated territory and we call on the #Turkish side to support the opposition factions in retaking these areas, to ensure the return of the civilians from those areas (2)
.#Russian control over areas south of M4 means #Regime’s control is there & aligns with its public statements that it is near taking control of #Ariha, #Jabal_Al_Zawiya #Jisr_Al_Shughour. This does not meet demands/aspirations of millions of #Syrians from these areas (3)

A few points to share with you now #Syria #Idlib #Russia #Turkey
The Russian-Turkish deal is valid for six months. Turkey will have to present all maps where its proxies are deployed and where jihadists and foreign figgers are deployed in the entire area of Idlib and surrounding+
#Syria and #Russia have the freedom to bomb all jihadists positions as included in the non-announced deal. Therefore there is no violation of the ceasefire unless, along the M4, Turkey fail to clear the Saraqeb-Latakia road and the Syrian army becomes under fire.
#Turkey asked until the 15th of March to clear jihadists or dislodge them (perhaps to other parts of Syria at the moment. That is not Russia/Damascus's problem) from the main axis agreed in #Moscow. Turkey said if Jihadists won't leave, Ankara shall not intervene in their favour.

- Esraa Abdel Fattah, a human rights activist and reporter
“In #Russia, President Putin’s government utilizes politically-motivated imprisonment to bolster its power by cracking down on journalists, human rights advocates, religious minorities, Ukrainian citizens, and civil society advocates.”

I went to #Idlib to cover the humanitarian catastrophe and #Turkey's recent offensive against the Assad regime.

Here are some impressions. (THREAD 1/17)
2/17: First thing you notice: wherever you go, there are children. They make up an estimated 60% of the more than 1 million displaced people in #Idlib and live without clean water, sufficient food, shelter or education.
3/17: Locals live in the cities, IDPs in the camps. But many can hardly be called 'camps'. People just rent a plot of land and construct their own tents. In this camp for new arrivals in Sarmadā, there are no facilities. Just mud, putrid water and a heavy stench. #Idlib

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.
