Only 30 countries took part in the #Israeli Foreign Ministry’s gala celebrating the new #US embassy in #Jerusalem last week. Not coincidentally, Israel’s ties with most of them are based on arms sales used to carry out gross human rights violations
Following 1967 War, #Israel began a diplomatic campaign to convince countries to oppose resolutions demanding it to unilaterally withdraw from the occupied territories. Israel attempted to buy votes of "murderous dictatorships" & military juntas in exchange for weapons & training
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
Why is the insurgency in Southern Cameroons not dying out after arrest of leaders of Ambazonia Interim Govt supposedly behind it all? Is there a single "secessionist" movement or are there different grps with their own ideologies/strategies? Who's who in Ambazonia in 25 tweets:
1.Republic of Ambazonia (RoA): Pioneer "restorationist" group led by Fon Gorgi Dinka who coined the term Ambazonia in 1984, its main advocacy tools are litigation (ex: Ambazonia Vs Cameroun, Bamenda 1992) & memoranda (Ex: New Social Order)
2.Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC): Created in 1995 from the embers of federalist All Anglophone Conference (AAC). Was main advocate of SC independence until 2016 when new Anglophone groups emerged. Its motto is “The force of argument, not the argument of force."
