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

#Moslems 8,560
#Christians 8,748
