Working on a project the last couple of months about the history of #Al_Qaeda and where it is now. A big takeaway: there has probably never been a moment when the group is so manipulated, influenced, and even controlled in places by state powers.
The role of state intelligence services in manipulating and using terrorist groups for their own ends remains nearly absent in Terrorism Studies; most people even think it's all "conspiracy theory" talk. But it's such a massive operational factor that this is weird.
.@ReuelMGerecht once wrote that the 'nonstate' actor ... designation [of Al-Qaeda] was always more myth than fact". If he overstated, it wasn't by much.…

Skull No. 5942

#France returned the skulls of 24 #Algeria|ns decapitated while fighting French colonialists over 170 years ago.

One of the skulls returned was Sheikh Moussa Al-Derkaoui. Sheikh Moussa was an Egyptian, a student of Sheikh Muhammad bin Hamza Dhafir al-Madani.
Sheikh Moussa settled in central #Algeria in 1829 and joined the colonial resistance. He fought alongside Sheikh Bouziane who led the colonial resistance during the 1849 battle of Zaatcha, a village in northern #Algeria.
During the siege of Zaatcha, the Algerian resistance fighters under the leadership of Sheikh Bouziane fought against the French occupation forces led by General Emile Herbillonet. The siege had ended with the extermination of the local population of the oasis.

1-If you follow French Twitter, you might have noticed “#JeNeSuisPasUneBeurette” trending. A thread on the very controversial use of the word “beurette” in #France.⬇️
2-Context: The French TV network TF1 tweeted a trailer for their long-running TV show “Joséphine Ange Gardien”, about an angel who comes to help people on Earth. The latest episode was about Joséphine helping a “proud beurette from the banlieues”.
3- All the clichés about French women of North African descent living in the banlieues (France’s poorest suburbs) were included. This woman needs to be freed from her oppressive culture, her father is rejecting her, she has to lie about her origins to get a job, yaddi yadda.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

Quello che sta accadendo in #Algeria è epocale. Una mobilitazione che dura ormai da 9 mesi,con pochi precedenti nella storia per durata,costanza e partecipazione, si avvicina all'appuntamento cruciale: quello delle elezioni truccate organizzate dal governo in carica >
illegalmente ormai da luglio. Le elezioni servono al governo dei militari (che nei fatti governano il paese fin dal golpe subito successivo all'indipendenza) per rifarsi una parvenza di legittimità con i paesi occidentali e del Golfo, grandi partner commerciali. >
> Tra questi paesi, zitti zitti, ci siamo noi. L'Eni ha pagato 200 MILIONI DI $ di tangenti ai politici algerini. Il processo si è svolto a Milano, nell'incredibile silenzio dei nostri media (in Algeria invece se n'è parlato eccome).…

Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Syria and the immense suffering which Syria has never made amends for.

I made these images several years ago. Still, years later, not one country has made amends. Today on Memorial Day, we remember. #JewishRefugees
Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Tunisia and the suffering which Tunisia has never made amends for.

Today on Memorial Day for the Jewish refugees from Arab countries, we remember. #JewishRefugees
Remembering the Jewish refugees from #Yemen and the suffering which Yemen has never made amends for. Arab states ethnically cleansed their Jews - yet the world is silent.

"There are few greater gifts we can give future generations than to eradicate a disease. We ourselves know what that’s like. #Smallpox was only officially declared eradicated in 1980 – less than 40 years ago. And yet already, it is becoming a distant memory"-@DrTedros #RLMForum
"Every year, over 1 billion people are treated for a neglected tropical disease, & last year 8 countries eliminated at least one NTD.
In the mid-1980s there were almost 3.5M cases of guinea-worm in 20 countries. Last year, there were only 28 cases, in just 3 countries"-@DrTedros

[#Thread] Welcome to night of the long threads part two, this one's on #Algeria. A few of you got in touch (@fatenaggad & @OpenAlgeriaOrg) to ask about the trend #كلنا_زغماتي , which translates as "we are all Zeghmati". Belkacem Zeghmati was appointed Attorney general earlier
2/ this year. However, Zeghmati is at odds with the country's judges after they went on strike after a huge reshuffle. The strike threatens the #December12 elections in Algeria, which are being opposed by the opposition who believe it will just lead to the continuation of an
3/ elite junta. So essentially, the hashtag "we are all Zeghmati" is seen as supporting the status quo, a quasi military government that doesn't represent the democratic demands by many Algerians. Anyway, next up is the analysis, which will add to a great one by @AymeneZermane

[Thread on #Algerie] 1/ Many of you will have read my last thread on two hashtags. One of the hashtags, #الجزاير_تنتخب (Algeria votes), is trending today with around 11.6k tweets. I have done an analysis this morning to see if there has been any change and yes, there has....
2/ The hashtag has been argued by some as a malicious tactic to divide opposition by encouraging people to vote in the elite-led elections in December. In the last thread I found a large proportion of accounts (12%) on both hashtags were created September 2019, with 8%
3/ being created in the space of just two days - 22nd and 23rd September. In today's analysis I looked at 5,244 unique accounts. In this sample, which include a number of the accounts mentioned previously, the number of suspicious accounts has increased again...

[#Thread on #Algeria] 1/ @Redasbox got in touch to ask if I could have a look at some unusual tweeting in Algeria. I analysed around 20,000 tweets from around 5,769 unique accounts. What I found, was alarming, and clear evidence of a disinformation campaign. Read on #Algerie
@Redasbox 2/ First some very brief context. Algeria has seen the 32nd weekend of pro-democracy demonstrations. Peaceful protests successfully pressured Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the ruler of 20 years, to step down in April. An election has been called for on December 12th to help try and
3/ resolve the political stalemate in Algeria. However, many Algerians are not happy as they believe the elections will be rigged by a military/elite junta. This is not uncommon in MENA. Thus the elections are seen as giving democratic legitimacy to continued authoritarian rule
