I have read the entire #Israel-#Palestinian peace plan and my advice to revelers is not to pop the champagne anytime soon -- "peace" is not around the corner. Here's a quick assessment. 1/11
I congratulate the plan's authors for injecting some realism into conventional views of this conflict. It is realistic for the Jordan River to be Israel's security barrier. It is realistic for hundreds of thousands of Israelis in West Bank not to be forced to relocate. 2/11
But they took those & other principles and stretched them beyond all recognition. #Israeli security control of #JordanValley became full sovereignty; not uprooting hundreds of thousands of settlers became not uprooting even 1 settler. There are no Solomonic judgments here. 3/11

1. Trump the Betrayer:

@RTErdogan is allied with #Iran #IRGC #QudsForce in its global war against #Kurds.

@POTUS #Trump @SecPompeo history with Kurds evidences Trump is working in concert with their adversaries.
2. It started October 2017, when Pompeo and Trump signed off on Iran's attack on Kirkuk. I spotted what looked like a deal involving Rosneft and Manafort. It's certain we betrayed the #Kurds to Iran. And Turkey gained. #ISIS too. I called it out in real time into deaf ears.
3. Here's Trump Kurdish Betrayal Chron:

2017 October Shia Militias & Iran Quds force attack Tuz Khurmatu. Kurdish forces fell back & surrendered Kirkuk. Pompeo strangely takes laissez-faire position and Iran seizes the large gas and oil fields.

This Tweet #Trending is dedicated for #Arabs who have been deceived for centuries about their #Quran & the status of Jesus Christ due to radical imams teachings within mosques. Do know the one who took care of Muhammad was a Christian Monk named Bahira! Like, share, & Retweet !!
The Nature of Jesus Christ in the #Quran : The only one with a pure spirit i.e., Holy Spirit was Jesus Christ, because he is the lord God/Allah. quran.com/2/87 & if you can't understand, listen to the teachings of apostle Mark the Evangelist
Does that mean #Arabs or #Muslims do not know God? They do but they haven't fully discovered his nature. Same goes for many #Jews & so in order for God's words to become true, the miracle of Mokattam Mountain was moved before the Caliphate and the Jews ✝️

It has been estimated that 23 million Yazidis have been killed by Islamic extremist groups during the past several decades.
The population continues to decrease. Just 200 yrs ago, it was 2M & it is now estimated to be less than a million worldwide

History timeline of genocides👇
▪️ Islamic terrorists started a series of genocidal campaign against the Yazidis in 630 AD by killing and abducting many.
▪️ Islamic terrorists incited a major war against the Yezidis in 637 AD.
#YazidiGenocide
▪️980-81 AD. Islamic #Kurdish armies surrounded the #Yezidis living in the Hakkar region. They promised the Yezidis mercy if they surrendered to them but failed to keep their promise. Instead, most of the Yezidis were massacred. Those who survived were forced to convert to Islam.

1. Unpleasant as it may be for many, the current trajectory of the war in #Syria will require the US to work with the #Damascus government to keep the country from becoming an even worse terrorist breeding ground. When we overthrew Saddam we destroyed the military too. The result
2. was #ISIS and chaos on a massive scale. #Geneva process when accomplished will create a democratically elected Syrian government. It will still have to fight the terrorists that #Turkey & Qatar finance & arm.

#SDF is not a separatist force. They are a loyal opposition force
3. Loyal to Syria that they fight to defend. The goal of a federal Syria is the principal part of SDF's ideological thinking that ties them to Abdullah Öcalan. The federal system is not the PKK's ideological creation. It's America's. Local governance brings stability in diverse

1. When the #SDF liberated #Tabqa, many said that the #Kurd majority #SDF could not function in an Arab city. They did not seek to rule only empower Tabqa's Arabs to create a self defense force, the Tabqa Military Council. Now brothers & sisters in arms are coming to the rescue
2. of the #Kurds and #Christians and #Arabs in the north under threat from the #TurkishISIS Orcs. Like Lord of the Rings, the torch was lit and the the call was answered. Turkey under Erdogan is the enemy of all humanity and its army is the army of Orcs from the underworld.
3. Those who seek genocide deserve to be destroyed. Americans have also been betrayed and our vengeance will have to wait until next year when when we send the @GOP Orc army, @senatemajldr & the @SenateGOP majority packing and, in 2022 #JihadiJim Risch too. @SenatorRisch

Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.

A short [THREAD] on the symbolism of some of the #IS media, most notably Dābiq and al-Aʿmāq. Might be a bit late, but this is indispensable for an account like mine, and offers a great view on the use of eschatological imagery by such groups.
All throughout #history, #Muslim groups on the rise tried to intertwine their cause with the prophetic eschatological narrations on the ultimate victory of the righteous group (al-ṭāʾifa al-manṣūra) who precede the coming of the Mehdī and the Messias.
A most notable example is the recurring interpretation of the black banners from the East as a sign of the victorious army, more specifically by the #Abbasid revolutionaries and modern-day armed Muslim groups. Dābiq and al-Aʿmāq belong in that same line of thought.

1. Here's what's happened on the first day of the #CardiffRaceRiots:

Wednesday 11th June 1919 was the hottest day of the year☀️. At 10pm 🕙 a group of people in vehicle on #EastCanalWharf near #CustomHouseStreet.
2. The vehicle had a number of people in there. There were men of colour and their white wives. It got a considerable amount of attention from a group of white men on the street when it reached Cahanal Parade Bridge. A police constable arrived at the scene

#CardiffRaceRiots1919
3. And then, another break of coloured men and their wives arrived in #Cardiff Central. Sometime during this commotion, some of the people exited the vehicles on #CanalParadeBridge in #CardiffCentral to the extremely hostile crowd.

The larger game of #Arabs vs. #MuslimBrotherhood is a conflict that is quietly playing out diplomatically across the region. #Qatar & #Erdogan strongly support MB, #Egypt/#KSA/#UAE strongly opposed to MB, #Sudan has overthrown MB, and #Kuwait/#Jordan/#Tunisia are in the middle.
Besides #MuslimBrotherhood's quest to overthrow govts and bring idealistic Muslim rule, the other threat facing the region comes from #ISIS & #IRGC, representing Sunni & Shia religious extremism. Both want to overthrow govts and introduce their own versions of Islam.
Where is #Pakistan in this game? Most #Pakistani elite don't even know what's happening on the ground. Few at Pak military+MOFA understand & follow this. #MuslimBrotherhood existence in Pak is negligible & peaceful, but #ISIS/#IRGC represent a threat and are being countered.

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

"Many #Arabs were attracted to Erez #Israel by the prosperity brought by the #Jews
For example, 40 Jewish families settled in Rishon Le Tsiyon. By 1889 400+ Arab families had settled around them. This repeated itself in many Jewish areas"
~A. Druyanov (all before the 1893 census)
🇮🇱In the area where organized Jewish settlement began *where 98% of the Jews would live until independence*,
📌the entire *non-Jewish population* in 1893 came to 93,600
~37,893 #Christians
~55,707 #Arabs
The #Jewish population* at the time was ~59,431
~>Vital Cuinet’s 1895 survey
#Jews 28,112
#Moslems 8,560
#Christians 8,748
