Since the #annexation of #Crimea, the #Moscow #Patriarchate has lost most of its #adherents in #Ukraine.

The Coalition Agreement between @netanyahu's Likud and @itamarbengvir's Jewish Power names the latter Minister of National Security, where he would be able to torment #Palestinian citizens of #Israel, Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem, and across the West Bank.
In an unprecedented move, the West Bank gendarmerie (Border Police) will report to Ben-Gvir and not to the Israeli military commander of occupied #Palestinian territory. It represents a risk to Palestinians and a formal, de jure, #annexation of the West Bank in its entirety.
When the formal annexation of the West Bank came up before (in the context of the @realDonaldTrump Plan), the international community mobilized to prevent it. This is annexation, mobilization is again required.

A few thoughts about 🇺🇦🇷🇺 #ceasefire #negotiations:
Like 🇷🇺's war against 🇺🇦, they did not start after 24 February 2022. They started in 2014, after 🇷🇺 had illegally annexed #Crimea and instigated a military conflict in #Donbas. 1/19

For more details 👇…
In other words: 🇺🇦🇷🇺 negotiations have already lasted 8 (!) years. They went through different stages:

1. From 2014/15 through to 2022, 🇺🇦 and 🇷🇺 negotiated about the implementation of the #MinskAgreements.
They never managed to agree on elementary status questions and the sequence of political and security-related provisions – which is why the implementation of the MA remained blocked. Negotiations took place in two formats:

Interesting in #Putin's speech was that the West would've created a rules-based order #Russia never agreed to. Appealing, I think, to non-Western, often former colonial states where this type of critique lands well. But USSR was frontrunner in establishing many of these rules. 1/
From 1950-1974, USSR led the campaign to define "aggression" in order to eliminate justifications for aggressive wars (A/C.1/608) while USA, FRA, CAN led the protests against any form of a fixed definition: they wanted to leave it up to UNSC, open for power play and ambiguity. 2/
The USSR wanted a detailed definition of this core norm in a rules-based order, aggression, that restricted the discretion of the UN Security Council. Despite meanwhile invading Hungary by the way: "to suppress a revolt", the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. 3/

It’s official.

Tomorrow at 15.00 (Moscow time) 🇷🇺 will annex #Donetsk, #Luhansk, #Zaporizhzhia + #Kherson. They will „sign treaties“ at the Kremlin.

#Putin will give #annexation speech after the ceremony (time TBC).

Подписание состоится 30 сентября…
This means:

1. 🇷🇺 illegally annexes > 20% of 🇺🇦 territory.

2. on this basis it will illegally consider 🇺🇦 attacks on these territories as targeting 🇷🇺itself and use them to legitimize future escalations in its war against 🇺🇦.
3. Putin creates a path dependency that future 🇷🇺 leaderships will find difficult to get rid of. The new 🇷🇺 constitution, adopted in from 2020 in extremely doubtful circumstances, stipulates that it is illegal to “dispropriate” 🇷🇺 territory.

#OTD in 1861, Hawaiian King Kamehameha IV declared neutrality after the outbreak of the Civil War. Allying with the United States would have provoked Confederate raids while recognizing the Confederacy would have seriously damaged international relations with the U.S.
King Kamehameha IV died on November 30, 1863, and was succeeded by Kamehameha V Lot Kapuāiwa. He wanted to keep favorable trade deals with the United States and worked diplomatically with the Lincoln administration to negotiate a new treaty of neutrality.
The Hawaiian public skewed toward the United States. Hawaii already abolished slavery in the Constitution of 1852. Many Hawaiian-born Americans (most of whom were the sons of American missionaries) supported the United States over the Confederacy.

1, #Germany's new government's #coalitionagreement of the @SPDbt, @Die_Gruenen and @FDP, on the #EuropeanEunion's #EasternNeighborhood: "We are working together with the #EU and its member states on the further development of the #EasternPartnership.
2. States such as #Ukraine, #Moldova & #Georgia, which are striving to join the EU, should be able to move closer through consistent rule-of-law and market-economy reforms. We will react decisively and reliably to democratic upheavals and be a partner to the democracy movements.
3. We want to facilitate civil society exchanges through targeted visa facilitation. We will continue to support Ukraine in restoring full territorial integrity and sovereignty. @UkrVerstehen @H__Ukraine @PromoteUkraine @NEC_Ukraine @intercourier_ua @UaPosition @CPD_UA @gazeta_ua

#India #Nepal #NewDehli #China #Annexation

An Indian intelligence agency has flagged that in Nepal, China is conquering more ground.
An Indian internal intelligence agency study said that as the Nepali Communist Party is attempting to cover the Chinese Communist Party's expansionist agenda, the actual scenario could be much worse. In addition, the Indian intelligence in New Delhi also sounded a warning.
The chinese grabbing is taking place in Gorkha, Darchula, Humla, Dolakha, Sindhupalchowk, Sankhuwasabha and Rasuwa were. China started making inroads into many Nepalese territories in June.

On the #Trump-mediated normalization between #Bahrain & #Israel keep in mind that this is not unexpected or historic per se, but because there might be a #SaudiArabia angle. Me & @h_lovatt wrote it for @ECFRMena last month…
In fact, there was much to say about #Bahrain and #Israel in my June article for @ispionline, when #annexation was possibly imminent. Find the article here:…

De facto #annexation keeps on keeping on

Question to all right-wing conservatives in the US:
You insist that you have the right to defend YOUR home with force, to bear arms and STAND YOUR GROUND, etc...
Do Palestinians have that right too?
If not, why not?
What is so striking is constant erasure of Palestinians as VICTIMS of violence at hands of Israel/Israelis. Because of this erasure, there can be NO discussion about the right of Palestinians to use force. In fact, ANY and ALL of their uses of force are condemned as "terrorism"
To me the CLEAREST example of this erasure is how the US media has remained SILENT about revelations that senior Israeli officers created & ran a terrorist group that killed hundreds of civilians in Lebanon in 1980s

1. Seven more thoughts about the #Israel- #UAE agreement brokered by the U.S.:
A) The timing was undoubtedly tied to the approaching U.S. elections set for Nov. 2020...
2.• #POTUS is searching for an achievement to present to the public before the elections (and perhaps also a legacy)
• PM #Netanyahu understood that #annexation was a dangerous move that carried both great costs and a potential expiration date for U.S. recognition...
3.• the UAE is concerned about a future Democratic administration in Washington leaving them to fend for themselves against Iran, Turkey, and Qatar.

By #Israeli logic the #WestBank is already part of #Israel. Wednesday, July 1, was meant to be the day on which the Israeli #government officially annexed 30% of the #occupied #Palestinian #WestBank and the #Jordan Valley.

We are proud to support H.Res 326 from @RepLowenthal @GerryConnolly and @RepKarenBass calling for a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians. Any U.S. action that does not support two states makes peace further from reality. 1/3
We unequivocally condemn any tacit support by the U.S. of #annexation of the West Bank. U.S. support for unilateral annexation of any part of the West Bank makes us unable to fulfill our role as a fair mediator between Israelis and Palestinians. 2/3
We pray, as King David did in Psalm 122:6-8 “sha’alu shalom yerushalyim,” pray for peace over Jerusalem, for the sake of our kin and friends, Israelis, Palestinians, and all who live in this holy place. 3/3
