I decided to rewrite the thread on the Seal of Muḥammad to focus on the seal itself, and not the seal as part of the black shahāda flag, on which I have a proper thread. First of all, let's start with the actual design of the #seal on the #prophet's signet ring.
The most common and popular reading of the engraving today is "Allāh Rasūl Muḥammad", an #Arabic linguistic construction which places the subject after the object similar to the famous verse in the Qur'anic Fāṭir: 28: "Innamā yakhshā Allāha min ʿibādihi al-ʿulamāʾu."
Supporters of this theory argue that one should always position #God's divine name(s) in a superior position when writing a text, as did the prophet do when writing his letters. They state that only the top position befits the Divine Being, therefore starting with Allāh.

On 30 Sept 2019 #NCRI held a press conference at the National Press Club of Washington, DC, revealing new details on the #Iranian regime’s September 14th attack on SA #Aramco oil installations pointing to this fact that #IRGC high commanders participated in this attack.

So the question comes in mind who is #IRGC and what is its mission?
In this video, we want to take a look at some terrorist activities of #IRGC in the world.

Below is the history of IRGC.
#IRGC created by #Khomeini in 1979 is an #Iranian government agency tasked with defending the regime against internal and external threats. Espousing a radical ideology and a paranoid worldview.

A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

1/ This is big news. Twitter have finally suspended the Twitter account of Saud al Qahtani @saudq1978 , and 267 accounts originating in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt primarily targeting Qatar. They also suspended six Saudi Accounts linked to Saudi-state run media
@saudq1978 2/ I say finally because Saud Al Qahtani has long been accused of manipulating Twitter, and putting people's lives in danger using Twitter. I wrote a little about how he did that here > ijoc.org/index.php/ijoc… and here marcowenjones.wordpress.com/2017/08/23/sau…
3/ The 267 accounts may be bigger players, but bear in mind thousands of accounts are routinely suspended for disseminating propaganda without any public announcement. #Qatar #Saudi #Bahrain blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/c…

It's incredible how successful the Bahraini ruling family has been in co-opting Western academics and think tanks to produce a pro-regime narrative of Bahrain. Forums held on the rule of law are empty, but people in the West are fooled. #SEPAD
Presentation on the "genocidal violence" perpetrated against Bahraini Shia civilians in the 1920s. The state was complicit in these attacks. It's difficult to understand contemporary conflict without looking back at this history. Anti-Shia discourse goes back centuries. #SEPAD
"I had to chose between writing this or going back to my favourite place in the world." #Bahrain

The #UAE diplomacy with #NewDelhi is a step forward in helping end #India-#Iran strategic partnership. If successful, this will help #Pakistan interests that suffered due to Indian-Iranian partnership in #Afghanistan & #Balochistan. /1

@AQpk
The #UAE is likely hoping to permanently end #India's reliance on #Iran oil imports, and shift its oil contracts to Arab Gulf suppliers. #AbuDhabi is likely also interested in seeing India end its role in #Chabahar port, which has also created problems for #Pakistan and #China.
While helping #Pakistan economically & diplomatically (quiet diplomacy to bring the #US & #Islamabad closer), the #UAE has walked a fine balance to court #India in the hope of encouraging an #Indian shift away from #Iran.

Frage ist, wo die von #Großbritannien vorgeschlagene europäische Marinemission zur Sicherung des Seeverkehrs in der Golfregion fahren könnte, ohne in eine Konfrontation mit dem #Iran zu gelangen. #Thread
Denn die Meerenge von Hormuz im #PersischenGolf ist an ihrer schmalsten Stelle weniger als 60 Kilometer breit. Sie ist ein wichtiges Bindeglied – zwischen den Ölproduzenten in der Region und den Märkten in Asien, Europa und Nordamerika. Mehr als 30 Prozent des Erdöls,
das verschifft wird, wird durch die Straße transportiert. Kommt es wirklich zur Eskalation werden wichtige Ölproduzenten wie #SaudiArabien, #Kuwait, #Qatar oder #Bahrain ihr Öl nicht verschiffen können. Der Iran hat immer wieder gedroht, diese Meerenge zu schließen.

💰George Nader💰

George Nader, the disgraced & recently indicted child sex trafficker & child porn aficionado is in the thick of Team Trump global shenanigans from the notorious Seychelles meet to Qatar Blockade to Psy Group & more.

MAIN THREAD
Trump’s lack of prep’n for victory & disorganized transition created a vacuum that, as RU/ME sought out access & influence, was quickly filled by a number of people eager to portray themselves as access brokers or to generate personal biz opportunities.
nytimes.com/2019/04/20/us/…
But prior to the 2016elex in addition to RU’s efforts to influence the American electorate in favor of Trump, ME foreign actors also assisted w/ the SocMed influence ops to help Trump & harm Cruz/HRC.

Nader among others were key to these influence ops to swing the elex to Trump

💰Nader - Broidy UAE & Qatar

Schemes to buy influence in US foreign policy & legislate US sanctions against Qatar a US ally for monetary consideration
April 2, 2017 George Nader, wired $2.5M to Trump fundraiser, Elliott Broidy.

Nader paid the money to Broidy to bankroll an effort to persuade the U.S. to take a hard line against Qatar, a long-time American ally but now a bitter adversary of the UAE.
cbsnews.com/news/witness-i…
The money was wired to Broidy through a company in Canada in April 2017.

A month after (May 2017) Nader received the money, Broidy sponsored a conference on Qatar's alleged ties to Islamic extremism.

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3
