Nope, #Iran has not abolished the #MoralityPolice, as Western media euphorically claim! Rather, it is an appeasement & diversion tactic of the regime after more than 2.5 months of #IranProtests & thus not to be mistaken as a concession: Here's why🧵
Iranian state media have circulated a prosecutor's statement from Sat. suggesting such a step. But there is no legal decision on the matter.
First of all, one should not forget: the rigid hijab/dress code is an indispensable pillar of the Islamic Republic, inseparable from its identity.

Nein, #Iran hat nicht die #Sittenpolizei/#MoralityPolice aufgelöst, wie westl. Medien nahezu euphorisch verbreiten! Vielmehr ist es ein Beschwichtigungs- & Ablenkungsmanöver des Regimes nach über 2,5 Mon. #IranProtests & somit auch keine Konzession diesen gegenüber: Here's why 🧵
Iranische Staatsmedien verbreiten ein Statement eines Staatsanwalts von gestern, der solch eine Auflösung suggeriert. Doch es gibt keinerlei rechtliche Entscheidung hierzu.
Zunächst sollte man nicht vergessen: die rigiden Hijab/-Kleidervorschriften sind ein unabdingbarer Pfeiler der Islamischen Republik, untrennbar mit seiner Identität verbunden.

1/ BREAKING: The @UN_HRC permanent Commission of Inquiry on Israel released its first report. The biased report reflects the #UNHRC's obsession with attacking #Israel: it ignores context, makes false racism claims and minimizes the role of terror groups.
2/ Most of this report repeats language from previous UN documents, such as the discredited Goldstone report and an #UNRWA fundraising appeal. The cited UN reports in turn, are largely based on unverified claims from activist NGOs.
3/ The report reflects the COI’s secrecy and raises questions as to how the Commissioners were chosen and who is writing their reports. They disingenuously claim to want to hear both sides, but to the best of our knowledge only met with NGOs advancing the Palestinian narrative.

Lol. So, no change in India's stance wrt #Russian #Ukraine #war afterall🤔

Both #India & #UAE didn't condemn Russia. They condemned civilian killings in #Bucha and called for independent investigation meaning they don't want to jump into conclusions during the "fog of war".
⚡So, India isn't happy with the indifferent attitude of some Ukriane institutions! 🤔

Yesterday some Indian Members of Parliament raised the issue of harsh treatment meted out to Indians by Ukrianian army (by some neonazis). Govt. brushed off those!

It seems we've taken a stance - A MULTIPOLAR WORLD.😁

For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

(1) The TNPF can confirm that on the evening of the 12th of September the State Minister for Prisons has gone to the Anuradhapura prisons, summoned the #Tamil political prisoners and had got two of them to kneel in front of him. #lka
(2) The State Minister had them pointed his personal firearm at them and had threatened to kill them on the spot.
(3) The TNPF condemns in the strongest possible terms this dastardly behaviour of the State Minister. Tamil political prisoners are already traumatised for being held in detention under one of the most draconian pieces of legislation known to the world, the PTA.

In #Afghanistan millions live in fear of the Taliban terrorists who have taken over the country.

Here in Geneva, the #UNHRC meets shortly on Afghanistan to adopt one of its weakest-ever resolutions.

Better to scrap the session than send message of appeasement to the #Taliban. Image
The United Nations was founded to prevent war. For years we appealed to the Council to hold an urgent session on the war in Afghanistan. Image
Yet even as 241,000 people were killed, including 71,000 civilians, this UN Human Rights Council refused to hold a single session to try and help Afghanistan’s victims.

Not a single commission of inquiry to hold terrorists and their state sponsors to account.

#UNHRC46 resolution on #lka is weak compared to demands of victims & recommendations of @UNHumanRights & @Mbachelet.
Countries supporting #lka govt was lowest in history of #UNHRC - 11 of 47 (23.4%). 29 countries supported #lka govt in 2009, 15 in 2012, 13 in 2013 & 12 in 2014
Today, only 5 Asia Pacific, 3 Latin American, 2 African countries & Russia supported #lka govt. No western country supported #lka govt. Majority of African countries (9 of 13) & many Asia Pacific countries (5 of 13) abstained.
Only 7 of the 22 countries that voted for the resolution are from the western group. Majority of Latin American countries (5 of 8) and East European countries (5 of 6) voted for the resolution along with few Asia Pacific and African countries

For quite some time the #Democrats have maintained that Russia meddled in the American elections of 2016 which brought in @realDonaldTrump as #POTUS.

Trump denies the allegation and the reports to make his election culpable of influence have not been as decisive.

I'm starting to believe they were not wrong. In fact, recent developments suggest a conspiracy of epic proportions.

This is my theory:

Russia - a declining power has become the lackey to China. Putin made personal favours to Trump in that build up.
Ever since his inauguration, Trump has been withdrawing the US from its leadership of the Rules Based Liberal Order of which the UN is the centrepiece.

Trump at a meeting of the UN General Assembly said: the future does not belong to globalists but patriots.

Last day of filing request for a resolution on #Kashmir at the #UNHRC has ended.
Pakistan failed to garner minimum support of 16 nations for admission of the request. Adoption of resolution would've required min of 24 votes.
#Article370 #HRC42
Pak FM @SMQureshiPTI before leaving for Geneva had promised a resolution on Kashmir
#UNHRC rules say, “Proposers of a country resolution to have the responsibility to secure the broadest possible support for their initiatives (preferably 15 members), before action is taken;”
