2)The vid also featured fighter “Abu Mujahid al-Farsi (Persian)" who spoke on behalf of fighters in #Iran, and stated, “We say to the Magian government and those who support it: wait for actions and not words...”
3)So far in this campaign, which has been bolstered by troves of coordinated supporting media, #ISIS has released videos from its #WestAfrica #Sinai #EastAsia #Caucasus provs - a troubling scope of mobilizing recruitment following recent reemergence of leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

I missed it when #China’s Embassy in #Afghanistan tweeted this two months ago, but it’s very interesting to see the #CCP fretting about #PanTurkism & #PanIslamism. The former would be a bulwark against Chinese expansionism into #CentralAsia, while the latter would be a disaster…
… for all of humanity. #China’s lucky in the sense that #Turkey’s #Erdogan isn’t a true pan-Turkist, despite his attempts to style himself as some kind of neo-Ottomanist. His alignment with #Iran’s oppressive regime, which is funded by Chinese oil purchases…
… is completely antithetical to the ideaology of #PanTurkism, as #Tehran treats the Turkic #Azeris/#Azerbaijan’is living in #Iran terribly, taking their taxes & neglecting areas where they’re a majority. #Erdogan’s ideology isn’t pure or consistent. It’s merely self-serving.

In case anyone is wondering what to get @RosianneCutajar for Christmas, I’d recommend (a) a couple of solid dictionaries, (b) a treatise (preferably in very simple & plain language) on the role of dictionaries & (c) a reality check as a stocking filler. 1/
Here’s @RosianneCutajar. Rosianne is a tool (not a particularly sharp one) in Muscat’s toolkit that he whips out for comic relief / sympathy / distraction.

An insidious circus sideshow. This is her latest advertorial “opinion piece” in the ever obliging MaltaToday 2/
Rosianne has a past which she is somewhat ashamed of. Which is fine, we all did stupid stuff 3/

Once in Moscow, Trump received a private message from the Kremlin, delivered by Aras Agalarov, an Oligarch close to Putin & Trump’s partner in hosting the Miss Universe event there: “Mr. Putin would like to meet Mr. Trump.” That excited Trump.
