MYTH: It’s an ugly misconception that Jews and Arabs lived in peace before 1948.

REALITY: Jews have faced racism and discrimination for centuries in Arab countries.

This poster I made, 1 of 9, tells the story of Jewish persecution in #Yemen in the 20th century.

Can't believe my eyes seeing de Tocqueville quoted re: prospects of democratic transition in #Algeria. The guy literally wrote memos in support of French brutal torture system in #Algeria. It's already a violence that he became the democracy theorist in the US but this is a farce
On #epistemic violences and theorizing from the #GlobalSouth, think about how Alexis de Tocqueville, before becoming the father figure of democracy in the U.S. was a war-strategist for colonial #France in #Algeria. I'll throw in a few bonus quotes from his "Essay on #Algeria":
#Tocqueville wrote in 1841 "The most effective means we can use to subjugate the tribes is the interdiction of commerce” - speaking here about #Algerians around the Ottoman Empire's fall and the invasion of #France.

Every time I catch myself thinking "This is the most Algeria thing to ever happen," something... even more Algeria manages to happen and prove me wrong.

Like this dude.
Okay, so this clip definitely needs some translation and historical context for non-Algeria people (including other Arabs and non-Arabs, too).
He's basically saying:

“We are Algerian, not Syrian. We're not going to do anything destructive like burn down the whole country. We're not Syrians. Our youth are better than yours. Come back here in a year. You'll see; we'll never be Syria. We're Algeria. Long live Algeria!"

Nel giardino di casa abbiamo un'altra #Libia pronta ad esplodere: si chiama #Algeria 🇩🇿ma nessun media mainstream ne parla.
Nel mio piccolo ho provato a farlo io qui: bit.ly/2GIgHxL

UPDATE #Algeria : oggi tocca agli studenti. Nella descrizione dell'evento si parla di manifestazioni "contro le gang della cocaina". E' un riferimento ironico ad alcuni parlamentari coinvolti nel narcotraffico. Una metafora della corruzione in generale del sistema politico.
Facoltà di medicina, Algeri. Polizia schierata di fronte ai manifestanti.

These Moroccan coins feature the so-called Seal of Solomon, often depicted as a hexagram, similar to the Star of David. The coins are dated respectively 1271 A.H. (1855) and 1290 A.H. (1873/4), minted by king 'Abd al-Raḥmān and his successor, Muḥammad IV of #Morocco.
The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to the Abrahamic king/prophet Solomon. It is said that Solomon used this ring to control the spirits and animals. The design as a hexagram is often depicted on medieval #Islamic banners, coins, drinking-cups or in mosques.
According to the Catalan Atlas (1375), the two Anatolian beyliks of respectively Karaman and Candar featured a Seal of Solomon on their flags. The symbol was popular among the Turkish beyliks, and was later used by the #Ottomans in their mosque decorations.

Today's @UN meeting will totally reject this @nikkihaley text: "Condemns Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel & for inciting violence along the boundary fence, thereby putting civilians at risk, demands that Hamas cease all violent activity and provocative actions..."
"...further condemns the diversion of resources in Gaza to construct military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas, when such resources could have addressed the critical needs of the civilian population..."
"...and expresses grave concern about the destruction of the Kerem Shalom crossing by actors in Gaza, which has severely hindered deliveries of food and fuel for the people of Gaza."
