Time has come for the serious confrontation with #ISIS "soldiers of the Caliphate" in Quneitra (Jaish Khaled bin al Waleed) bordering the occupied Golan heights as the Syrian Army, Hezbollah & allies reached the territory occupied by the group as part of south #Syria liberation.
#Damascus soldiers & allies are aware of the necessity of this inevitable battle that is supposed to begin as soon as the preparation of attack from different fronts is completed. This can be achieved when more territories under Nusra and FSA are cleared.

90 cities & villages and 27 border positions are liberated in south #Syria in the provinces of Suweida and #Daraa.

Syrian Army is on the borders, once again, with #Israel and the occupied territory.

Israel T4 attack last night is an insignificant move.

A researcher at the #Palestinian Return Centre in #London-@PietroStefanini, attends a conference where he sees a video by a young Palestinian man-Ahmed Shehadeh speaks passionately about the 70-year ordeal his family has faced living stateless in #Lebanon
Inspired by "I challenge anyone to stay in a refugee camp-not for 70 years-because we were forced out of #Palestine 70 years ago-but for just 7 days" @PietroStefanini travels to the Burj al-Barajneh refugee camp where 50,000 #Palestinian refugees live
Pietro met #Palestinian women whom all still hope they'll be returning to #Palestine: "Our homes were demolished-lives destroyed-We still have our keys because we hope we'll go back 1 day"
Pietro says "What strikes me most is that everyone I meet here is trying to find hope"

The plethora of crimes committed during the military dictatorship of Augusto #Pinochet in Chile between 1973 and 1990 were exactly the type of abuse of power that Julian Assange would uniquely expose through #WikiLeaks
Both Assange and Pinochet have battled against extradition from the #UK, with vastly different outcomes and contrasting positions taken by the UK govt. The UK supported Pinochet, a human-rights abuser, and persecuted #Assange, a journalist who has exposed crimes of the powerful.

A series of #tweets from the #Israeli Army Forces @IDF account have been met with shock. Because they destroy one of the biggest myths about #Israel & #Palestine, by showing how uneven the conflict truly is.

Under attack
The day #Netanyahu touched down in #Britain for talks with @theresa_may 6 June, #Israeli army posted a #tweet saying a #Palestinian had hurled a “large rock” at its armed troops. What came next is a damning indictment of the policies the #UK continues to legitimise
IDF Response
#Israeli army claimed a “riot” was instigated by more than 10 #Palestinians & a single rock was flung, leading to the #Israeli army using “riot dispersal means”. It then described how the group “flanked the soldiers”:

Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report
wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic

545-#Naomi is certainly very cozy with the #Rothschild family. She seems to know David, Nat, James, & even Lord Jacob de Rothschild himself.
For somebody whose job is to look pretty and walk catwalks, she certainly seems well connected. Why would that be? 🤔

Living in my country #Yemen is like a journey into a nightmare war. Thread:
-I saw and heard things that I will never forget.
-I don't sleep well at night.
-14 million people are hungry while nearly 19 million (70% of the population) are in need of humanitarian assistance.
-It broke my heart to see so many undernourished children. Their skin worn thin and barely covering their bones, they could only make their distress known with thin. They were so weak they could barely stand.
-I saw people with their limbs blown off, & worse.
-I can't forget the expressions of sadness on the faces of poor people,
-I have realized that there is no one and nowhere to run to if something bad happens like #Saudi bombardment.
-I have lost 6 of my best friends.

Pay attention to this. This is not just a UK problem, this is something that is going to affect the entire world. And the next time I hear someone extol the virtues of multicultural whatever in my country, I will commend to them this passage.
This isn’t assimilation or heterogeneity or a celebration of diversity. Those terms refer to something that is not the case before us now. Do not insult my intelligence or our friendship by suggesting that I don’t understand the difference between invasion and legal assimilation.

Today, @CER_EU publishes my piece on #Brexit and #JHA. I have been looking at this for 1,5 years so I hope I did not make too many mistakes (links to piece - cer.eu/publications/a… and opens thread)
At the outset of the #Brexit process, most people assumed that a deal on #police and #judicial co-operation was easier to get than one on #trade. Time has shown this is not the case. Ongoing co-op on #JHA is one of the few items yet to be agreed on #withdrawal deal. Why?
Well, because the #EU and #UK's opening positions in the #negotiation are incompatible: Britain wants a #bespoke agreement with the EU, a la #Schengen, but is not willing to accept #ECJ or #EUCharter. EU wants to replicate existing models. What to do?

The so-called "moderate rebels"

1.
What was the UN created for?
What was the United Nations charter created for?
What were human rights associations created for?
What was the International Criminal Court created for?

Enough of double standars and hypocrisy. Enough is enough.

If wars can be started by lies, they can be stopped by truth.”
