🔥At the Aug'16 meet, Nader (who also flipped!) told Don Jr the #SaudiArabia & #UAE crown princes were "eager to help his father win." Zamel’s #PsyGroup already had a MULTIMILLION $ proposal for a “social media manipulation” effort to help Trump.🤨

Of course, all of these shady people deny that anything came of the meeting, but Nader (who, along with Gates, is cooperating!) paid Zamel $2 million via a bank in #Cyprus.🙄

Mueller is FOLLOWNG THE MONEY‼️😎

#Saudi Opinion Piece blames both #Qatar and #Turkey for #Syria ‘s crisis. Here we go okaz.com.sa/article/1695539
The Saudi opinion piece refers to Syrian State as “nationalist” and blames the Arab Spring on foreign countries (Qatar & Turkey with political cover from the U.S) capitalizing on domestic issues while relying on help from the Moslem Brotherhood ideology
Opinion Piece concludes that countries like #Saudi and #UAE who are embracing “stability and moderation” need to work on “Preserving the Syrian State” that governs such an ancient and important land

The #UAE is opening its embassy in #Damascus (in 30 minutes from now) led by a Chargé d'affaires Abdel Hakim al-Noaymi. #Syria FM will be present at the openning.

Who is next? #Italy is almost ready and #SaudiArabia is not far.
For those who missed this information, Mohammad Bin Salman met General Ali Mamlouk in 2015 (a meeting organised by #Russia). #SaudiArabia said it has inherited the crisis from its predecessor and is involved as much as the #USA wants it to be involved.

#UAE Chargé d'affaires Abdel Hakim al-Noaymi said in Abu Rummaneh, a wealthy district in #Damascus where the #UAE based: "This is the return of #Syria among the Arab nations and soon other embassies will follow". #Syria

#KSA and the #UAE share the international community’s desire for peace in Afghanistan, and will continue their efforts towards promoting dialogue and reconciliation. The peace talks held in the UAE will help bring us closer to that goal.
Despite obstruction attempts of those who fuel terrorism and conflicts in our region, UAE talks were productive and will help promote intra-Afghan dialogue towards ending the conflict. We will start to see very positive results by the beginning of next year.
We will continue to work with our allies; USA and UAE and others to produce positive results for the brotherly Afghani people in order to find an end to the conflict and establish much needed peace and security in Afghanistan.

#Saudi feminist Loujain al-Hathloul, 29, was detained in May in unprecedented crackdown vs feminists. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman aide Saud al-Qahtani, personally oversaw her interrogation, which incl waterboarding & threatened to rape & kill her google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.…
Of 18 detained activists, at least eight have been physically abused in custody, according to Saudi advisers, activists &others with knowledge of the prisoners’ treatment. One said security officials electrocuted her hands. “My fingers resembled barbecued meat, swollen and blue”
Glad to see some finally pay attention to misogyny in #Saudi Arabia - I call it gender apartheid. RIP Jamal Khashoggi. It should not be lost on us that it took the murder of a man for some to finally pay attention to women.

The legitimate government of Yemen supported the former UN envoy’s proposal of UN control over the port of Hodiedah. The Houthis refused, and only consistent military pressure by the Yemeni armed forces and the Arab coalition forced them to agree.
The Arab Coalition to Support the Legitimacy in Yemen was founded to protect the Yemeni people and end the war and the humanitarian crisis that started as a result of the Iranian-backed Houthi takeover of Yemen.
#KSA and #UAE have contributed the most towards the 2018 UN humanitarian response plan and have provided a number of initiatives worth billions of dollars towards alleviating the suffering in Yemen. We remain committed to ending the humanitarian crisis to help Yemen rebuild.

Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum - daughter of the ruler of #Dubai - vanished in February, apparently attempting to escape the #UAE. This is the story of the tape she left behind. theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2…
The story of the Emirati princess who tried to escape twice but was forcibly repatriated, whose sister tried to escape and was also forcibly repatriated, is horrific. And makes you ask: how much worse for ordinary women in the #UAE?
It is a horrific story and one which must also force questions about #Dubai and its glitzy image: “Latifa says her role as a PR coup for modern Dubai – she was fond of skydiving, which was reported as a sign of her freedom – is a sham.” #UAE

It is not lost on me that whenever I post about women raped, abused, tortured, threatened with jail for journalism, be they in the US, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Switzerland, Egypt, Philippines, I am told:
- the women are lying
- the women want attention
- the women are ugly
- I am ugly
All fucking day, the same thing just from different locations. All demanding the women & by extension I “prove” that the boy king of Saudi Arabia tortured feminists,the ruler of Dubai abducted & imprisoned his princess daughter, the thug president of Philippines bullies a journo
Sometimes it’s obvious they’re trolls, other times they are shamefully real people NOT being paid to regurgitate misogynist shit, but ALL times they are dipping into a deep well of patriarchy that demands women “prove” the very patriarchy that patriarchy insists doesn’t exist.

“I’ve been mistreated & oppressed all of my life...Women are treated like subhumans. My father...can’t continue to do what he’s been doing to us all” Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum,daughter of #Dubai ruler.Imagine how much worse for ordinary women theguardian.com/world/2018/dec…
Latifa is 2nd of Sheikh’s daughters to try to flee life of caged luxury &then vanish after reports of recapture.Her older sister,Shamsa,was seized on streets of Cambridge after fleeing family’s Surrey estate in 2000,in apparent abduction never fully investigated by British police
Latifa‘s bid to escape & her repatriation w/assistance of foreign govt reminds me of #Saudi Dina Ali Lasloum who tried to escape forced marriage but was detained at Manila airport until uncles came, beat her up, dragged her onto plane home w/limbs bound google.com/amp/s/www.nyti…

The War in #Yemen is a fight to stop #Iran from dominating the shipping routes and expanding its malign influence.

Our allies #SaudiArabia and #UAE are doing the hard work to keep all of us safe.
We can help the people suffering there, but we cannot allow Iran to win.
Iran has no legitimate interest in Yemen, other than to expand its sphere of influence and to create a Shia corridor of control. Although Iran’s role in Yemen has been underreported by the media, Iran has been funding, arming, and training the Houthis. state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/20…
A vital US interest at stake here is to ensure the free flow of shipping through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait. Iran already sits astride the Straits of Hormuz & has claimed recently they control traffic through it.

The administration is studying naming Alhouthis as a terrorist group! Better late than never! But here are 7 reasons why: #terrorism (Thread)
1. Houthis foiled the (already flawd) political process in 2014-15 and took over the capital Sanaa putting the legitimate president and cabinet under house arrest! #Yemen #Houthis #Terrorism
2. Recruiting child soldiers, something I witnessed with my own eyes since the 2000s. #Yemen #Houthis #Terrorism

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

SIGINT of Stone saying he talked to Trump regularly early in the 2016 campaign & of RS claiming he deserved credit for coordinating w/ Wikileaks.

Arab intel: Qahtani (fall guy) was beamed into a room of the Saudi consulate via Skype.

He hurled insults at Khashoggi over the phone. Allegedly Khashoggi answered insults with his own.

Qahtani told his men to dispose of Khashoggi. "Bring me the head of the dog"

Folks don’t forget Pastor Andrew Brunson was ‘detained’ in Turkey in August, but released following the murder of Khoshoggi.

Also, don’t forget Flynn’s failed plot to kidnap the Cleric Gulen for Erdogan.

👉🏼Will Trump hand over Gulen?

👉🏼Mnuchin 💰💰?

nytimes.com/2018/10/08/us/…
Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️

Nader is COOPERATING.😎 2/

George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/

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

On the 14th of this October, we will be rolling out a unique and affordable #insurance scheme to replace the current "3k AED" bank guarantee system. The MoU on the insurance scheme has been signed today with an Inusrance Pool represented by Dubai Insurance Company.

#UAE
H. E. Nasser Al Hamli: "With the new #insurance scheme, #UAE will be the first country to guarantee the wages of all workers in the private and domestic sectors"
Private sector establishments shall be able to get their bank gurantees refunded in the following two cases:
1- when a work permit is cancelled.
2- when they renew a work payment given that they buy an insurance policy instead.

This obscure story about #mercenaries training for the #Yemen #Hodeidah push may sound far fetched, but remember Palestinian Mohammed Dahlan was at the January Seychelles meeting with Erik Prince and we know how the whole UAE mercs for Yemen plan started. mintpressnews.com/israel-trainin…
You might also remember that the day before Prince arrived at the Four Seasons, on January11, 2017, that the #UAE was offering 5000 men to fight in Afghanistan via bagman George Nader in an email to money hustler Elliott Broidy to impress President Trump. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
Erik Prince was fingered by the NYTimes as the man behind UAE mercenary company Reflex Response. R2 allegedly hired Olly North sidekick, Robert W. Owen, of Jupiter Fl to provide Colombian mercenaries via BVI-based, Thor Global Enterprises. #1585788.
