Remember #Leicesterviolence in 2022?
Propaganda machinery is at it again to rehash the Hindu vs Muslim to hide Islamists footprint after their first attempt failed.
An interesting coincidence that @MailOnline , @MaktoobMedia ,& @Pawankhera find common cause with!

A Thread: Image
#Leicester violence followed by #INDvsPAK cricket match led to tensions b/w fans of both nations. It was turned into communal clash via fake news & claims. To recap, fake news shared by terror-sympathizing Islamists amplified it on social media.


It was appalling to see how the communal spin was given to the entire incident by terror-sympathizing Islamists like Majid Freeman (@Majstar7) who shared fake news (later deleted them) & was still given space by @thewire_in, @guardian, & @BBCNews

NEW | @brian_cartr: The Turkish raid on an alleged ISIS safe house in NW Syria on Apr 28 likely killed an ISIS leader, but not the caliph. Targeting ISIS leadership is helpful, but it fails to address the group’s ability to embed itself within local populations. Read the update…… ImageImageImage
@brian_cartr The #alQaeda and #IslamicState networks in Africa will likely seek to use the #Sudan conflict to improve their position on the continent. Numerous inmates escaped from a prison in #Khartoum city beginning on April 22 amid clashes between Sudan’s two warring factions. Image
@kathryn__tyson: Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (#TTP) militants based in #Afghanistan continue to direct TTP activities in #Pakistan-i cities far outside of TTP’s recent attack zones. Image

12 years ago yesterday, @USNavy Seals killed the world's most wanted terrorist, 9/11 mastermind, and then-leader of #alQaeda, #OsamaBinLaden, in a raid at his hideout in #Abbottabad, Pakistan.

From the @LongWarJournal archives on May 2, 2011:…
During the raid, @USNavy Seals collected hundreds of thousands of documents, images, and computer files.
Before later making a large swath of these public, the @CIA gave exclusive access to FDD's @LongWarJournal.

Some highlights of their findings:…
Also from the archives: They discuss the #binLaden documents with @CliffordDMay in episode one of FDD's "Foreign Podicy" podcast — listen here:…

Reminder: " Kaum bekannt ist, dass die wiedervereinigte BRD bei der Zerschlagung Syriens eine erhebliche Rolle spielt. Der sogenannte Perthes-Feldman-Plan ist ein schon vor Jahren beschlossener Deal, der zum Ziel hat, Syrien in bewährtem Kolonialstil aufzuteilen ...
... und die Bevölkerung als Konkursmasse zu verwerten.

Umgesetzt wird dieser Plan vom Think-Tank @SWPBerlin, der „Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik“. Der Kopf dieses US-Werkzeuges, das mit deutschen Steuergeldern finanziert wird, ist Volker Perthes.
Perthes ist mehr als ein „Berater“. Er hatte seinerzeit die Idee, mit dem Computer-Virus Stuxnet das iranische Atomprogramm zu sabotieren.

⭐️An Iran-based former Egyptian special forces officer and a high-ranking member of Al Qaeda, Saif al-Adel is the new purported chief of the terrorist group, as per a UN report.
2. US State Department also confirmed that Saif al-Adel has become the 'uncontested' leader of Al-Qaeda following the July 2022 death of Ayman al-Zawahiri.
3. It is important to note here that Al Qaeda has not formally named a successor for Ayman al-Zawahiri.…

1/ Important new video from #alQaeda in #Yemen features Sa'd al-Awlaqi. This rare appearance suggests how desperate #AQAP is to reach local tribes in #Abyan & #Shabwa. The message is overwhelmingly against #UAE, not #Iran as some commentators have said. Iran is barely mentioned
2/ #AQAP's Awlaqi accuses #UAE of igniting inter-tribal conflict & humiliating locals. Lists UAE aims in #Yemen as:
▪️Implementing plans of Jews & Christians
▪️Stripping Yemenis of religion, ethics, ties
▪️Stealing resources
▪️Disrupting trade
▪️Creating dependency
3/ In the new #AQAP video (11.40mins), #AlQaeda's Awlaqi mentions "The Emirates" as the enemy at least 8 times (many more if we count pronouns). #Iran is mentioned only twice, and as a relative afterthought following other enemies: UAE, Jews, Christians, America + henchmen.

According to sources @PowerUSAID is exploiting #Syria earthquake tragedy to promote #WhiteHelmets & restore credibility of brand - a group affiliated wth #AlQaeda, accused of multiple crimes by #Syrian people including organ trafficking (failed cover up by @BBC Mayday Series)
This is because the #WhiteHelmets failed to achieve rebranding in #Ukraine. #OPCW IIT report failed to cover up WH role in staging events #Douma 2018 that led to accusations of "chemical weapon" use by #Syria - discredited by dissident inspectors & BBC producer Riam Dalati.
#WhiteHelmets are enemy of Syrian people. During their occupation alongside armed groups funded/armed by FUKUS/Israel/Saudis/Qatar/Turkey & dominated by #AlQaeda- Syrian civilians were tortured, executed, crucified, incarcerated, murdered, exploited & abused.

The collective West are lying when they claim any solidarity with #Syrian people or that they are sending "humanitarian" aid to #Syria. They are sending only to areas controlled by #AlQaeda assets including #WhiteHelmets. Aid will not reach Syrian people in most cases.
Sanctions kill and keep killing…
Either it will be stored by the terrorist gangs for resale at high prices to the Syrian people (standard MO) or it will be traded in Turkey from the Bab Al Hawa border crossing.

Important new report on persecution of Syrian Christians in #Idlib by #AlQaeda-origin armed gangs. #WhiteHelmets have also taken part in desecration of Christian churches & violent seizure of property (testimony). Western regimes are anti-Christian.
"..since taking over Idlib, Islamist [terrorists] have established a stranglehold over Christian citizens, preventing them from practicing their rituals openly; they limited the services to prayers inside the church hall without ringing bells or raising crosses."
Christians have left Idlib in mass toward other Syrian areas or abroad, leaving everything they own behind. Thus, Idlib’s Christian population has dwindled dramatically. Reportedly, before 2010, Idlib was once home to 10,000 Christians distributed in the villages of al-Yacoubiyah

George Friedman, stichter van #Stratfor, maakte in 2015 op lucide wijze de Amerikaanse realpolitik begrijpelijk voor wie het niet begrijpt: 'Cynisch en immoreel, maar het werkt!'

1e punt: Europa bestaat niet voor de #VS; er bestaan enkel Europese landen.
Is islamitisch extremisme een bedreiging voor de #VS?
Friedman: 'Het is een probleem, maar geen existentiële bedreiging. We hebben een veel groter probleem, namelijk de relatie tussen #Duitsland en #Rusland. Daar hebben we 2 wereldoorlogen en een Koude Oorlog voor gevoerd.'
Verenigd zijn #Duitsland en #Rusland de enige macht op aarde die de VS kan bedreigen: Duits kapitaal en technologie gekoppeld aan Russische grondstoffen en arbeidskrachten is een combinatie die de VS al eeuwen bang maakt.
Wat gaan de Duitsers doen? Ze weten het zelf nog niet.

Today, the @JoeBiden admin released its National Security Strategy. I’ll summarize its major points & put some thoughts on #terrorism & #Afghanistan specifically in this THREAD. 1/n
@JoeBiden (You can find the full text of the document here:…) 2/n
@JoeBiden The strategy exists in 5 parts: (1) overview of the problem; (2) sources of US strength (solutions); (3) global priorities; (4) strategy by region; (5) conclusion.

Oddly, part 1 starts on page 6. Nitpicky, I know, but still weird--who counts the cover as page 1? 3/n

NEW #Africa File | #BurkinaFaso’s latest coup on Sep. 30 indicates that the governance and security crisis in West Africa’s #Sahel region continues to deepen. @liam_karr @brian_cartr @EmilyCEstelle… 1/5 Image
Salafi-jihadi groups linked to #alQaeda and the #IslamicState have exploited cyclical violence and anti-government grievances to root themselves in local communities and steadily expand in the Sahel over the past decade. 2/5 Image
The fallout from the Burkina Faso coup, like the 2020 and 2021 coups in Mali, will likely further reduce counterterrorism pressure and worsen the conditions that lead to Salafi-jihadi expansion. 3/5

Offensiva contro al Shabaab. “Elimineremo il terrorismo dalla #Somalia "
Questa volta andiamo in Somalia, per seguire quello che sta accadendo da due settimane.
Nelle ultime due settimane il governo, attraverso l’esercito nazionale somalo (Sna) ha avviato nelle regioni centrali del Paese la più vasta offensiva contro #AlShabaab di sempre. Le milizie legate alla jihad hanno lasciato sul campo centinaia di corpi di militanti ma alla fine
hanno ripreso il controllo di #Booco, nella regione di #Hiran. Il fatto eclatante consta nel fatto che per la prima volta in 13 anni, la loro roccaforte è stata violata. Il governo, attraverso le parole affidate all’agenzia “Sonna”, afferma di aver ripreso il controllo della

How much is #Ukraine similar to #Syria?

Back in 2016. power of Bashar Al-#Assad was on his last legs. Insurgents took over the almost entire country, leaving him with roughly 15% of land under government control.

by Slavyangrad
All big cities were lost or heavily contested. The enemy was as close as two kilometers to the center of #Damascus.

#Syria #ukraine
Then #Russians came. Slowly but methodically, they started to bombard insurgents, which we can call a conglomerate of various ideological and interest groups, including designated terrorists such as Jabhat Al Nusra and #ISIS.

The regime of #Iran, like virtually all in the #MiddleEast, is vile and we hope one day it’s citizens will be free. But what the international #msm is doing right now with its coverage is essentially trying to aid the US government in another regime change attempt.
1/ #Iran was a democracy in 1953, but unfortunately its Socialist-leaning government nationalized its oil industry which was a no-no for the Imperialist #USA and #UK so the #CIA & #MI6 collaborated as they often do to overthrow its government and install a bloody dictator. #Shah
2/ the US plays lip-service to wanting democracy in the #MiddleEast, but what it demands is FIELTY to the US Empire. Egyptian people bravely and at great cost overthrew a bloody dictator and established the Arab World’s biggest democracy. The new govt wasn’t pro-US and in 2013…

How fake news has been deployed by the Pak and Islamists in #Leicester to generate the victim-hood narrative, while simultaneously unleashing violence on others over the past few weeks.

Leicester: A case study
First Claim: The narrative of how ‘Racist Hindus’ provoking Muslims, was widely shared on social media by several Islamist handles.

Fact: Videos circulated on social media were of a mob shouting ‘Allah hu Akbar’.

Second Claim: Racist Hindu mob raised anti-Islam slogans on streets was widely shared by Islamists & local media (without any evidence).

Fact: Mob was shouting slogans of ‘Vande Mataram’ & ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to protest the violence against them, indicating no communal angle.

1) Official wire of #alQaeda in #Yemen has just released a plea for freedom by @UN official kidnapped with 4 colleagues in February. It's emotional. Some is scripted, some clearly not. Begs for #AQAP demands to be met or "get the body bags ready" Image
2) Incredibly bizarre ending appears to implicate #China:
Captive reads from script, saying his message was recorded on 9 Aug following🇬🇧Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. He says that #China warned there would be consequences.

3) Other points of note
-We do not see or hear the other 4 captives
-Conditions clearly stressful (no daylight, no fresh air)
-Mentions mental & physical health issues
-Warns of same fate as Luke Somers
-No actual demands included
