Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

#August21201, the day Western leaders, mostly @BarackObama, decided to abandon their eminent responsibilities and historical consciousness.
Everything that followed logically stems from this assumed will not to act—yes, a deliberate will.
Intervening would not only have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but would have also stopped the victories of the revisionist powers.
We decided, yes decided, to lose, which means that we decided to let the #crimesagainsthumanity continue until today—they are—, ...
but also to allow the revisionist powers to set the agenda.
There's a continuity in #Syria between the #Ghouta, #Aleppo, #Homs, #Idlib..., but also with the failure of our intelligence and will in #Georgia, #Ukraine, #Belarus, #HongKong & #Afghanistan.

The hero who saved #Aleppo.

"This is the story of Bassel Karful one of the thousands of the brave martyrs who fought and died for #Syria. Bassel was from Tartous. Everyone who knew him said that he was a joyful always smiling young man whose love for his family has no equal
except his love for his homeland. His ardent patriotism was the key in making this rather humble guy a hero of legendary status. He destroyed three explosive laden trucks and stood his ground against a fourth that the terror groups have used to attack the army's post.
Those heroic acts earned him his spot amongst the greatest in heaven.

It was by mere coincidence that Bassel manned the " Metis "atgm platform instead of his comrade Ahmad Abbas who was on leave in Tartous due to his uncle's death.

In response to the @BBC defamation campaign in which @chloehadj is suggesting that I am a "Russian agent", a claim now amplified by #Syria "regime change" promoter, Michael Weiss - photo below, embedded with extremist armed groups #Aleppo.

.@bbclysedoucet @BBCMonitoring
2. @chloehadj took information from Paul McKeigue emails given to her by CIJA sting op managers. This alone suggests some collusion on part of @BBC to entrap McKeigue. In the emails McKeigue made a claim that I can be contacted through a Russian diplomat in Geneva.
3. This claim was repeated by @chloehadj in a @BBC front page article & in Mayday audio episode. CH claimed I had not responded to claim. This is a lie. CH never contacted me to verify claim. See emails below dated back in March 2021.

McKeigue also emailed CH to retract claim.

Die Beziehungen zwischen Russland und Türkei bleiben in Syrien extrem ambivalent.
Russland bombardierte wieder Stellungen der pro-türk. Gruppierungen. Türkei zeigte sich empört.
Zugleich patrouillieren die Länder in manchen syr. Provinzen gemeinsam.
Überblick im Thread 👇
Seit mehreren Wochen bombardiert Russland wieder die Stellungen der pro-türk. Gruppierungen in den Provinzen #Idlib und #Aleppo.
Insbesondere die Ölinfrastruktur wird systematisch zerlegt, um die Gruppen von ihrer wichtigsten Geldquelle abzuschneiden
Die Türkei zeigte sich empört.
Russlands Angriffe würden zivile Ziele treffen, so Ankara.
Das kennt man aber auch schon von früher, als Ankara hinter jeder Stellung und jedem Waffenlager ihrer Proxies ein "letztes Krankenhaus" erklärte.

More than the half of #Syria|ns are refugees or IDPs. Everything started as we demanded for democracy and more rights in March 2011. Instead of reforms #Assad killed protestors and started a war against the people two years as he realized that the uprising can't be stopped.
The Mukhabarat officials assure in their private conversations one million civilians were killed in jails and we lost almost the same, if not more, by bombing. The #Assad used all kind of weapons even chemical to kill the will of change in #Syria|ns and set Alawis infront.
This took the situation for more resistance & people decided to fight back & this was an opportunity to make it an open war & an opportunity for foreign power and radicals. Assad wanted this situation to bury our dreams under the prominent slogan "#Assad or we burn the country".

Sharing a personal story to highlight the near collapse in the standards of living of most citizens in #Syria

-My cousin’s husband passed away this morning in Aleppo. He was diagnosed with cancer 3 months ago. He was an Agricultural Engineer who had worked for ICARDA

2-#Syria ‘s currency has lost so much value that local currency income l, assets or savings are nearly worthless

One dose of Chemotherapy for his cancer treatment was quoted at $3,000. Doctor told them they need at least 4-5 doses

This was an inconceivable amount for them
3-While chemotherapy is priced in US$ , local income in SYP to pay for the above is in free fall

Income 1

Family owns small apartment that it rents out. Rent? $30 a month (SYP 95,000)

Income 2

Son works at a local back. Salary? $35 a month (SYP 110k)

Total $65 a month

Another year is going to finish. 2020 has left us with fewer military events in the Syrian military conflict. Reflecting the enormous influence of the regional powers in the country, where the end of the war is still far away due to political blockade that has led to a stalemate
As we saw during the last days of 2019, #SAA had begun #Op_Redemption3 in order to retake M5 highway. After a small hiatus during the first weeks of January, Russian-Turkish negotiations failed & #SAA restarted the offensive by opening three axis S. #Idlib, S. #Aleppo & its city.
12 days before the restart of military advances #SAA had already liberated Maarrat al-Numan town & big parts of S. #Idlib countryside. However, the advance didn't stop & one week later #SAA liberated another stronghold, Saraqib, reaching M4 highway & joining with S. #Aleppo axis.

Since 2012, Syrian regime has been implementing its ‘kneel or starve’ policy of systematically besieging anti-regime areas to break their will & force them to surrender, which often ended with massive forced displacement, and #Aleppo was not an exception. 1/
The Syrian regime began a relentless campaign with intensive barrel bombs & air strikes causing large-scale destruction & damage to civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, not to mention loss of civilian life, with 2.5M people in dire need of humanitarian assistance. 2/
The Assad regime alongside its Russian and Iranian allies were able to regain control over Aleppo by breaking it. The price was destructing the city and forcibly displacing at least 110,000 people from east Aleppo, who were subjected to war crimes during the siege. 3/

Today marks the 4th anniversary of the displacement of #Aleppo, which was one of the largest mass forced displacements during the conflict in #Syria, and a testament to the scale of the tragedy that the Syrian people are experiencing for more than a decade.
Aleppo was one of the oldest cities in the world & has always been an important center for trade and industry, and until recently, it remained the economic capital of Syria and the largest population center in it before it was destroyed by the Syrian regime & its allies.
The scene of the departure of residents from the eastern neighborhoods of #Aleppo, as a result of the agreement which was forced by the Russians and the Iranians, is still a witness to the systematic forced displacement operations in Syria’s modern history since 2011.
