I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?

Interesting: several #ISKP commanders were liquidated soon after the #Taliban broke open the prison in Kunar. Some of these commanders had travelled to #IS Centre in Iraq/Syria.
So the #Biden administration really is preparing to say #Americans left behind in #Afghanistan wanted to be left there or are at fault for being left there.

#Biden's decision to stick to the Aug 31 deadline is bold -- it raises 2 key risks:

1) We'll be leaving people behind, certainly 1,000s of #Afghans & quite likely, a few Americans in hard-to-reach spots.

2) Other G7/NATO states have been rebuffed again by #Biden -- more anger.
"#Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal."

Overall approval rating now 41%.

BREAKING -- The US military has begun re-withdrawing from #Afghanistan, per US officials.

Very worrying sign for the 10,000s of those left behind - mostly #Americans, but some U.S. & European nationals too.

Today is the day the #US will decide if it is going to evacuate everyone, or stick to #Biden's self-imposed deadline in #Afghanistan.
This messaging from the State Department about the #Taliban having pledged to allow #Afghans who helped us leave the country even after the #US military departs is either criminally naïve or a horribly cynical way of consigning thousands of people to death
The Pentagon messaging matches up with that of the State Department: very much looks like the #US is preparing the ground to leave #Afghans it owes a duty to behind, but to pretend there's some kind of process or agreement to get them out

The security situation remains poor in Kabul this morning, and to the extent any order is being brought it is by the Haqqani Network, a component of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
There really is no excuse: Biden was warned for months and months, right out in public. It needed no intelligence assessment.
The administration's adoption of existentialist vocabulary when asked why they're so awful at their jobs doesn't seem to be just a coping strategy; it's an indication they're lying again, in this instance about staying as long as needed to get everyone out

Mass protests against #US, #British, #Saudi and #UAE occupation held in #Mahrah province

A mass demonstration was held in al-Ghaydah city, the capital of #Mahrah province in eastern #Yemen, calling for British and #Americans occupation force to quickly withdraw their troops
from the province.
Protesters also called on the international community, the #UNSecurity Council and all free people of the world to put pressure on the #Saudi occupation to force it to withdraw its forces from all areas of the province.

The demonstration, presided by Sheikh Ali Salem al-Harizi and the leaders of the peaceful sit-in committee, as well as several tribal sheikhs of the province, on Friday confirmed the popular rejection of the occupation and the violation of #Yemen’s national sovereignty, and

Very consistent pattern of reports about #Taliban behaviour that we have now. Needless to say it does not match what the Taliban have been presenting in these first few days in the interview with a female journalist (who has now been purged) or in their press conferences.

#Russia Denounces Long-Time #US Blockade Against #Cuba As Violation Of Human Rights

In a statement posted on its website on Saturday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said the restrictive measures that the White House has maintained against Cuba for more than 60 years have
a hostile character and constitute a human rights violation, according to a report by Prensa Latina.

The economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States against #Cuba has been described by experts as an act of economic warfare.
In its release, the #Russian Foreign Ministry also pointed to an increase in human rights violations inside the #US, citing racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination. It said these violations were systematically being overlooked by the authorities.

(Thread 1/4): With @TuckerCarlson on @FoxNews tonight - Our government regularly flouts modern security laws established in 1947 & since. They justify spying on #Americans in the name of targeting foreigners and classifying any #American data they scoop up as “incidental”.
(2/4): Under current law, the @NSAGov can go shopping through a treasure trove of phone company data w/little oversight. Once they have your information, faceless, unelected bureaucrats are free to pass it around the office
(3/4): Even if you can prove you are being spied on, there is no legal recourse. No lawsuits against the @NSAGov have effectively been successful in stopping the spying on a particular #American citizen. Cases can last for over a decade.

#Yemen is the last war and the first settlement


The war on #Yemen was the U.S.-Saudi reserve line in the face of the results of the signing of the nuclear deal the first time. Their were bad. Yemen was the surprise of all wars.
The war went from a U.S.-Saudi pressure tool to a reverse pressure tool. Energy and Gulf security are at the mercy of #AnsarAllah. Entering the time of settlements became conditional on ending the war on non-humiliating terms for #Saudi that would allow saving the rest of the
face. But the Saudi miscalculation that was at the beginning of the war is still continuing with the need to end it, and the illusions of achieving gains rule the #Saudi mind, which did not know how to win and does not know how to lose today.

I originally ordered major appliances from @HomeDepot back in January. It was the pandemic, so I wasn’t surprised when they told me that shipping would take three months. The supply chain was backed up while everyone figured out COVID.
But guess what, this is the end of April, and @HomeDepot just called for the THIRD time in three months to tell me that my appliances won’t be arriving on time. They’ve scheduled THREE times already.
And every time, they wait until a few days before the delivery date to tell me that it will be another month or more. The new projection is June 4th. Well, hold on. I don’t have no money. And I don’t have no merchandise.

The #American Proposal Only Expresses #American Interests In The First Place: #Yemeni Official

Deputy Prime Minister for Defense and Security Affairs, Jalal Al-Ruwaishan, affirmed that #Yemen welcomes any clear calls for peace based on ending the war and lifting the
siege imposed on #Yemeni people, according to YPA.

Al-Ruwaishan told Almasirah TV on Sunday::
-The international noise around #Marib is a reflection of the desire of the Saudi-led coalition countries or a particular party not to reach a decisive point that leads the
#Yemenisto a political solution.
-#Marib is part of the great battle of #Yemen, not a specific part, and confrontations in Marib have been continuing in various areas of #Serwah and Hailan since the start of the aggression on #Yemen.

The head of the #Yemeni national delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, has commented on the US envoy to #Yemen’s ceasefire plan, describing it as “a conspiracy to put Yemen at a more dangerous stage than it is, and representing the #Saudi vision.”…
“By presenting Saudi conditions as a proposal to stop the war, the #Americans have once again proven that they are behind the aggression and the blockade, explicitly,” he explained.

“They want us to respond through dialogue to what they have not achieved with war and siege,
and this fact must be realised by all.”

On humanitarian aid, Abdulsalam described what the US envoy said about the arrival of humanitarian aid in #Yemen.

He explained that oil ships are bought by #Yemeni traders with their own money and obtained a UN permit, and still the
