#Marokko! Soll das Weiterkommen gefeiert werden soll oder nicht?
Klar: das erste afrikanische Land im WM-Halbfinale ist was großes - so wird es in Afrika auch gesehen.👍🏼
Ich will knapp erklären was der Hintergrund der Kontroverse ist (am Ende meine persönliche Meinung):
Was hat es auf sich mit Themen wie der #Westsahara, den #Berbern (#Amazigh) oder den #Palästina Flaggen. Und noch etwas mehr wie #Sportswashing und Monarchie. Die #Westsahara ist ein ehemaliges spanisches Kolonialgebiet, das in den 1970ern von Marokko besetzt wurde.
Dagegen wehrt sich deren Nationalbewegung, die #Polisario. Marokko hat das Land mit Siedlern geflutet, Widerstand erstickt. Die Sahrawis leben als benachteiligte Minderheit im eigenen Land, in #Flüchtlingslagern im Ausland und hinter einem von Marokko gebauten Erdwall.

The tragic and historic floods have created immense challenges for the state and the nation. But they have also created an opportunity for #Pakistan to adjust parts of its foreign policy to focus on prosperity and opportunities for Pakistani citizens. /1
The intl response to the tragic flooding helped #Pakistan re-strengthen ties with key economic+security partners, esp in Mideast+West; states that stepped up again to help in difficulty. Time to expand on this; avoid policy overthink that leads 🇵🇰 to miss opportunities, like.. /2 #India's 5 Aug 2019 actions, or the 2020 #AbrahamAccords, or the 2019 huge #Saudi investment opportunity missed by #ImranKhan. Or the multiple opportunities under #Musharraf Admin 17 years ago. These were moments that could have accrued long term benefits for 🇵🇰.../3

Significant statement from caretaker PM @yairlapid: "Two-state solution is a strong guarantee for a democratic state of #Israel with a #Jewish majority."
Interesting moment during the @JoeBiden-@yairlapid presser in #Jerusalem when #Saudi news outlet @AlArabiya correspondent asked @POTUS what the #US is offering #Gulf states on #Iran's malign activity in region, and Lapid on where #Israel disagreed with Washington on Iran policy.

2. No comment on China in Mideast, but notes "CCP is increasing its criticism of perceived U.S. failures and hypocrisy, including the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and racial tensions in the United States"
3. Russia: In the Middle East and North Africa, Moscow is using its involvement in Syria, Libya, and Sudan to increase its clout, undercut U.S. leadership, present itself as an indispensable mediator, and gain military access rights and economic opportunities.

Actions and policies of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan and his #PTIGovernment have led to arrests, denial of jobs, travel bans, and deportations of Pakistanis from #Turkey #UAE #France #SaudiArabia #China. All in just three years. The latest is Saudi crackdown on pro-Khan Pakistanis. /1
In April, ex-PM #ImranKhan's incitement was responsible for Pakistanis getting radicalized in two countries: #Turkey+#SaudiArabia. 🇹🇷 arrested 27 pro-Khan Pakistanis on Apr 12. 🇸🇦 has repeatedly arrested Khan sympathizers in 2019+2020+2021 & 2022. /2
In 2020, PM #ImranKhan's followers launched online campaign against #Arab-#Israel peace agreement #AbrahamAccords, radicalizing young Pakistanis in the #Gulf who protested on streets in #UAE & #SaudiArabia, leading to loss of jobs, expulsions, visa bans/3

#Chinese Foreign Ministry gives very interesting details from #China FM Wang call with #Israel FM @yairlapid. Thread: As far as I remember, this is 1st time China praises the #AbrahamAccords, if without naming them. Wang Yi says "China is pleased to see Israel establishing 1/9
and developing normal ties with countries in the region, which is part of the reconciliation in the broader #MiddleEast 中方乐见以方同地区国家建立并发展正常友好关系,这应是中东整体和解的组成部分." So far, China has been was quiet re Israel's closer ties with #UAE, #Bahrain 2/9
despite its professed support for stability. Wang repeats China's stance re Israel ties with #Palestinians, says supports resuming talks on #two #state solution, repeats China's offer to facilitate direct negotiations between Israel and Palestinians. China had already hosted 3/9

#Israeli Annexation of #Palestinian territory on hold, following the #AbrahamAccords? Nothing further from the truth. Here is why:
Since the @naftalibennett - @yairlapid government was sworn in on 13 June 2021, 661 #Palestinian structures were destroyed, including 122 @EUpalestinians @eu_echo funded humanitarian relief structures, adversely affecting 11,361 persons.
Since August 2020, Israel established 25 new settlement outposts or satellite neighborhoods - in violation of international law - and in areas most disruptive to the territorial integrity of a future State of #Palestine.

Thread (1 of 9) Lots of angst over the #UAE threats to cancel #F35 purchase. Most miss the point b/c most don't know how US #weapons sales work (or not). @GulfStatesInst @GulfIntlForum @CENTCOM @CH_MENAP @RUSI_org @modgovae @IISS_org @thegulfblog @Dr_Ulrichsen @Cinzia_Bianco
(2 of 9) First, #USA sells weapons with conditions: so many conditions that they are more accurately described as "rentals" than sales. A purchaser has to agree to how these weapons are used, stored, disposed of when done. In most instances, this is to ensure wpns don't go...
(3 of 9) from buyer to bad guys (e.g., to a 3rd party); in some instances (e.g., night vision, crypto) it's to safeguard tech that the #USA relies on.
F-35 falls into the latter category: because it is "stealth" there are extreme restrictions on how it can be used..

Researchers from the University of Bath and York St John University found that, since the 1980s, millennial's obsession with perfection has increased by a third, which they blame on the impact of neoliberal economics. Say What?…
Neoliberialism. A 19th century idea that has destroyed many nations and built others. An idea that "maintains that “the market” delivers benefits that could never be achieved by planning." AKA stupid greedy people in charge. Where else is this being used?…

There is an obvious pathway for the @JoeBiden to rehabilitate its international reputation and change the subject from its debacle in Afghanistan. I.E. to focus on preventing a new foreign policy catastrophe in Ethiopia.

Thread follows....
At least since 1991 and the fall of the DERG, which coincided with the fall of disintegration of the Soviet Union, Ethiopia, and the TPLF led governments which followed have been been close allies to the U.S.
This long-standing relationship deepened in the years after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and became a partnership for counter-terrorism.

1 \ Exactly a year ago at this hour I got a tip from a source that something was going on. I frantically tried reaching @AviBerkow. He didn't pick up the phone. Neither did others at the White House
2 \ Three hours later I found out he was putting the finishing touches on the #AbrahamAccords together with Jared Kushner and their team. Later he told me: "When you called like crazy shortly before the announcement I knew we made it"
3 \ The #AbrahamAccords were the biggest breakthrough in Middle East peace in the last 25 years. It prevented a hazardous annexation initiative and replaced it with a positive step that contributed to security, stability and prosperity in the region

"We already have an emboldened #Iran" per #SaudiArabia FM @FaisalbinFarhan when asked about US-#Tehran talks on getting back to the #JCPOA "Iran is extremely active in the region w/its negative activity"

So, the US gov't doesn't have money for the Abraham Fund which promotes Middle East peace, but has billions for Iran, Hamas, and PLO terrorism which will see even more lives destroyed as they seek Israel's destruction.

Check.… #AbrahamAccords

Today, #Israel🇮🇱 has more #Arab allies than #Turkey🇹🇷 or #Iran🇮🇷. Premature to write off moderate Arabs. That could be what #Obama administration wanted by supporting extremist takeover in Middle East. The opposite has happened. Now there is a push back. Israel & Arabs favor it.
Erdogan's charisma, Islamist allies, & Turkey's soft power make him a key player. Iran's expansionism is based on weaponizing non-Iranian Shia communities. Both examples represent forms of religious extremism. Israel & Gulf offer a new model for the future of the Middle East.
#Turkey is a #NATO ally, a leading #Muslim success story as long as it steers clear of extremism. Half of #Iran cabinet are #US graduates, but it's model is not attractive in the Middle East, promoted by shady money and guns. A third model is presented by #AbrahamAccords.

Y’all need to read this entire article! The video itself is insane! He shows pics of Dem leaders “causing wars” & being in control for decades but completely ignores fact #rethuglicans started every war EVER! & #moscowmitch has bn in Senate for 30 yrs!…
2/The video begins with Trump’s eyes in the shadow, & its 2nd frame focuses the audience on the Capitol building – America’s Reichstag, where the decisions being denounced by the rally’s organizers were being made that day. The third frame of the video is the Hollywood sign in LA
3/This image immediately directs attn of an audience attuned to an American fascist ideology to the supposedly elite class of Jews who, according to this ideology, control Hollywood. Appearance of the Hollywood sign makes no other sense in context of a short video abt an election

This is @POTUS’s first unwise FP decision, since his inauguration.
To put hold on F-35s sale to #UAE is an indirect sabotage of the #AbrahamAccords with #Israel.
Shame ... Shame.. Shame...…
Why @POTUS wants to resurrect the Middle East problems of the Obama years?
#UAE #F35
Credit to @POTUS and @SecBlinken, Arabs are losing faith in peace. If the US continues with such approach, many youth will think Iran’s terror approach is what the US leadership prefers.

1- Ayer ocurrió una pequeña disputa acerca de si tiene alguna trascendencia (un giro copernicano) o no, el Acuerdo Israel Sudan. Creo que tal vez no se está valorando la magnitud de lo que estamos viviendo, así que aquí dejo un modesto aporte.
Hilo va:
2- Es importante comprender que el mundo islámico no es solamente el que está en Medio Oriente, sino que abarca, entre otras partes del mundo, un sector relevante del norte de África, conocido como el Magreb y se extiende profundamente al sur del Sahara.
3-Sudán tuvo, debemos recordar, una guerra civil y hoy tenemos Sudan del Sur, que ha sido por décadas una nación que dio amparo a organizaciones terroristas islámicas, responsables de no pocos atentados en África especialmente.

1 / Scoop: Germany updated the Palestinians in advance on the meeting in Berlin between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and asked them if there was anything they wanted to convey. But the Palestinians did not want to send a message.
The US was also updated in advance >>
2 \ Work on the meeting began about 2-3 weeks ago during talks between the German FM Maas and his Emirates and Israel counterparts, who understood that the two were interested in holding a meeting - but could not be held now in JLM or the UAE and therefore proposed Berlin. >>
3 / Germany is interested in conveying the message that #AbrahamAccords are a Game Changer and should take advantage of the new atmosphere in the region to advance talks with the Palestinians and that this issue should not be left aside >>

As always, propaganda is huge with anything in the Middle East. This video is not from #Bahrain in regards to protesting the #AbrahamAccords it's actually from #Iraq in 2019.
Several scenes are mixed through this video from different locations actually after taking a second look at it.

Hey Palestinians:

You keep whining about how the #AbrahamAccords ignore you.

That's wrong.

It treats you exactly how you deserve - as an entity that has, through your own actions and rejectionism, made your cause irrelevant.

You could have been the ones on the White House lawn signing a genuine warm peace with Israel, multiple times, since 2000.

Instead, you chose to adhere to your "principles" of destroying the Jewish state - through terror, through alliances with the worst human rights abusing states, through demographics of "return."
