@MullinCorinna of @Cuny4P: the #Palestine solidarity movement across our campuses has been growing and consolidating its gains over a number of years. In fact, we understand these two developments as connected. The more Palestine solidarity grows successfully, the more... 3/x

भारत अपना 50% से अधिक तेल अरब देशों से आयात करता है।

I Can't Stop Laughing 🤣🤣
Now I Am 100% Assured That India 🇮🇳 Has Been Progressed Towards Right Path By Defeating Radical Islamists And Extremist Forces Same Way As France.

(#1) @AJArabic Has Reported That BJP Lead Indian Government (Pro Hindutva) Are Defaming Other Religions 🤣
But The Truth Is Completely Diffrent, See There Were Two Scenarios Beings Discussed Around Here.

First Case Was Off #NupurSharma Where She Quoted (Sahih Al Bukhari 5133) And (Quran 51:48) Saying What Will You Islamists Feel If She Mock Islam By Saying PBUH Married Aisha At 55 ?

🧵 #Colonization And #Slavery

While European colonialism is condemned, the crimes committed by other civilizations have either fallen to the wayside to be forgotten or even glorified

Let’s explore some of the examples:
#Native Slavery:

When Alaska was ceded to America, the Tlingit sued the US, over anti-slavery act.

#Native chiefs rejected it, stating the buying, selling, and holding of slaves is one of the rules & customs of their people; the civil authorities have no jurisdiction over them.
#Arab Slavery

You likely have heard of the Transatlantic slave trade, but have you heard of the Islamic Arab Slave trade? A trade that enslaved millions of Africans and Europeans, and easily rivaled the Transatlantic slave trade? Probably not.

Actions and policies of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan and his #PTIGovernment have led to arrests, denial of jobs, travel bans, and deportations of Pakistanis from #Turkey #UAE #France #SaudiArabia #China. All in just three years. The latest is Saudi crackdown on pro-Khan Pakistanis. /1
In April, ex-PM #ImranKhan's incitement was responsible for Pakistanis getting radicalized in two countries: #Turkey+#SaudiArabia. 🇹🇷 arrested 27 pro-Khan Pakistanis on Apr 12. 🇸🇦 has repeatedly arrested Khan sympathizers in 2019+2020+2021 & 2022. /2
In 2020, PM #ImranKhan's followers launched online campaign against #Arab-#Israel peace agreement #AbrahamAccords, radicalizing young Pakistanis in the #Gulf who protested on streets in #UAE & #SaudiArabia, leading to loss of jobs, expulsions, visa bans/3

BREAKING - The first 10 mercenaries from the Arab country #Libya, who were recruited by the Russian PWC "Liga" (ex "Vagner") to fight Putin's #war in #Ukraine, were eliminated near #Popasna town in #Donbas. Source: Ukr. journo Anatoliy Shtirlits via his Telegram. [Thread⬇️]
[2] On March 24, the Commander of the #Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar visited Moscow to talk about sending #Libya's soldiers to fight with the Russian forces in #Ukraine. But LNA denied it, of course.…
[3] On March 11, Putin approved an idea of a defense minister Shoigu to recruit approx. 16,000 mercenaries from the #Arab countries to fight his genocidal war in #Ukraine. “We need to welcome them and help to get to the battle zone,” said Putin at that time.

🇫🇷 Marie Le Pen potentially leading polls w/ youth? What's up w/ that? Well as a young man who himself was once led astray by the alluring nature of far-right nationalism and radical politics, enjoy a personal view on what I think is happening here in thread format. 🧵
Le Pen in particular is an interesting figure, because she says all the right words to attract just the right amount of people to her words. Feminism? She's got your back, but she's again the "threat" of neo-feminism, that's bonus points with both men and trad-feminists.
She's pro-#nuclear power and for hydro-electric. #France already moving in this direction under Macron so good choice by her there. She wants to smack down wind and solar, also good on enticing that nuclear energy community, and one of her few points I actually respect.

Must note that #US has never called or asked #Saudi ruling #Klan to end politically motivated executions or help the dictatorship modernize its courts to ensure the minimum standards of legal fairness. US sold #Saudi trillions in arms & help improve its security @jakejsullivan
#US has so far refused to sanction a single #Saudi official involved in human rights crimes such as @pss_en @MhmdAlissa & others. #American policy has been clear & consisting for decades, support the ruling Klan & ignore its crimes. @WHNSC #Ukraine
#UK PM @BorisJohnson will meet mass executioner #MBS next week in spite of this massacre. This is the real #UK policy where #Arab victims of #UK -backed regimes are not seen or considered #bigotry

Thread: Invasion

Set your DVRs/make sure to be awake to watch live action! More seriously, couple of observations:
1. Whenever you have a precise leak like that, you can be sure that real action will happen at some other point in time or is already happening elsewhere. Image
2. Putin's intention to return #Ukraine to #RUssia's sphere of influence are very real. A recent attempted coup ignored by most #media is evidence of that intent. But the encirclement strategy may be less bluff & more Normandy-style diversion.
3. #Russia does not need a full scale invasion to set up a puppet regime in #Ukraine, its ultimate goal. The use of conventional warfare is politically costly, unpopular, may lead to high casualties, is unpredictable & difficult to control. (But good to have as an option.)

Something I posted in my original Twitter a few years back. I hope you enjoy it. I entitled it,
"#Apartheid My Ass!"
Apartheid My Ass!
#Israel is the only country in the Middle East that DOES NOT engage in #Apartheid.
Those who claim that Israel is an Apartheid 'regime' claim that compared to the civil rights of the Jewish majority in Israel, the civil rights of the Arab Muslim minority are discrimina­ted based upon their color, creed, religion and race.

Good that #SaudiArabia & #UAE have pledged #NetZero but #GCC total domestic emissions are only 2.4% of world’s. The #EU needs to focus on the emissions they export, mostly to #China, I argue how: 2/
As shown by the #SaudiGreenInitiative & #MiddleEastGreenInitiative + #UAE willingness to host #COP 28, the #GCC leaders now see a political value in embracing the #climate agenda. This paper described what each #GCC country is actually *doing* about it: 3/

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.

.@EuroMedoPt received an unprecedented number of Whatsapp screenshots of threats to kill #Arabs circulated among right-wing #Israeli citizens and empowered by the Israeli police.
This rhetoric and hate threats pose an imminent threat to the #Arab minority in #Israel, who already suffered from discrimination, neglect and crime over the past years.
Last month, @hrw issues a report titled "Threshold Crossed", accusing Israel of committing crimes of apartheid and persecution against the Palestinian population within Israel and in the Palestinian territories.

1/ Anghami reveals Live Radio: what is it? and how did we get to it?
Thread Time>

In 2010, @EddyMaroun & me decided to create a music service that became @anghami
Few know that the original idea was to build a website, and not a mobile app ! Live Radio
2/ In fact, our original pitch deck (with a logo that was never used) illustrated our idea of rooms where people can have an avatar & meet while listening to the same music all along.
3/ For us, it was basic: we used to discover music with other people, share with other people, and that's why we wanted a music service that connects music & people!

However, while working on the web business model, we struggled with monetization. We didn't want ads all along.

Reports on #Iran-#SaudiArabia intelligence contact in #Iraq.

#Zarif leaves #Qatar. #Saudi FM lands in #Doha, invites Emir Sheikh Tamim to meet the King in #Riyadh.

#Tehran (& the #US?) appears to try to take the #Gulf on board.

This could isolate #Israel in a revived #JCPOA.
Some in #Vienna appear to want to isolate #Israel. But officials in #Gulf/#GCC face a difficult choice. They have to weigh if a compromise on #JCPOA and weakening Israel's position will resolve the problem of #Iran's malign activities? Or will it be a temporary solution?
The #US is directly engaging #GCC on #JCPOA, while FM #Zarif engages #SaudiArabia through #Qatar and #Iraq.

If the #Gulf comes aboard, #Israel and #Republicans will be effectively sidelined.

Violence is rampant in Israel's Arab communities

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu courted the Arab minority in the election campaign.
Above all, it wants one thing from the government: that it finally do something about violence and crime in its communities.

At the center of the dispute are two of the largest and most respected families in Kabul: the Rayans of Mayor Salih Rayan and the Akris of school principal Khalil Akri.

In 1920, the "Nabi Musa" celebrations took place on April 4, coinciding with #Passover and the Greek Orthodox #Easter.
Amin al-Husseini, who was then at the beginning of his career, and Araf al-Araf stirred up the celebrating crowd with enthusiastic hate speech that day.
As a result, after the traditional prayer at the end of the holiday, the incited #Arab crowd marched from the mosque in the Judean Desert, 20 kilometers from #Jerusalem, to the homes of the #Jews in Old Jerusalem, shouting "Adbah al-Yehud" (Slaughter the Jews).
And a call that later turned out to be correct - "a-Daula Mana" ("The (British) government is with us").
The #Arab crowd shouted "Independence Independence" & sang: "#Palestine is our land - the #Jews are our dogs." During all this time, #Arab

A lot. Some stories are mind boggling. I will get to that thread one day. Most of the times we came out strong, but a few times, It was really rough. We only made it because we believed in each other.
