"Not only is Turkey driving out Christians & other ethno-religious minorities, but it also seeks to replace them with the roughly 3.6 million Syrian, mostly Arab, refugees currently within Turkish borders... an act of ethnic cleansing and replacement." 2/
"According to Nadine Maenza, former chair of @USCIRF and newly appointed president of @IrfSecretariat, the fate of the region’s minorities is on the line: “If this area falls [to Turkey], there won’t be any #Christians or #Yazidis left.” 3/

Do Muslims worship #God or Allah?
One of the biggest misconceptions about #Islam concerns the name “Allah.” Some people believe that Muslims worship a different God than #Christians , #Jews and others, and some missionary organizations distribute literature in #English in which
in which they say such things as: “Allah is the god of the Muslims” and “Muhammad told people to believe in the god, Allah.” They thus imply and reinforce the idea that “Allah” is some sort of false deity.
This is totally #incorrect because “Allāh” is the same word
that Arabic–speaking Christians and Jews use for God. If you pick up an Arabic #Bible , you will find the word “Allāh” wherever “God” is used in English.
“Allāh” is also the proper #name of God. Therefore Muslims use the name “Allāh” even when they speak other languages.

Over the past few weeks, I have posted threads about the plight of the #poor, the ongoing #climatecrisis, #abortion, progressive Christianity & #guncontrol. Christians have engaged me in the last three of those threads. These priorities are not right. This is not #creationcare 🧵
The Hebrew word ‘mishpat’ means ‘justice’. It is found 65times in 33 different Psalms.

‘The Poor’ are described, in varied and often poetic ways, on almost every page of the Psalter.

More than anything else, the #climatecrisis is an issue of justice for the poor
The poor of this world have done little to create this crisis. And yet rural families in Bangladesh must flee rising water levels, leaving homes and livelihoods behind. Central America is wracked with more & stronger hurricanes. Herders in Kenya must travel ever further for water

Turkey's leaders are taking a break from enabling #Russia against #NATO and ethnic cleansing Syria’s #Kurds to launch absurd claims and empty threats against Greek islands. We take a look at the painful history of Turkish rule on one of them: a thread on #Chios from #theHELC 1/10
The history of the Greeks in Chios goes back more than 3,000 years reaching to #Minoan and #Mycenaean times. Chios is the most likely birthplace of #Homer and had its own coins and democratic parliament by 600 BC. Its famous wine was exported from the Black Sea to #Egypt 2/10
The islanders sided with Athens and then #Alexander the Great against Persia and continued to prosper under first the #Roman and then the Eastern Roman (#Byzantine) Empire. The famous #mosaics of Nea Moni monastery are considered a masterpiece of Byzantine art 3/10

There are about 2.3 billion #Christians in the world & 1.8 billion #Muslims. That gap is expected to narrow by 2060, when there will be 3 billion #Christians & nearly 3 billion #Muslims. That’s because #Muslims, on average, are younger & have more children than do #Christians.
The countries with the 5 highest #Muslim populations are all in South and Southeast #Asia or in sub-Saharan #Africa, rather than the #MiddleEast; and the countries with the three highest #Christian populations are in the #Americas rather than in the #MiddleEast or #Europe.
By 2060, #India will retain a #Hindu majority but also will have the largest #Muslim population of any country in the world, surpassing #Indonesia. The current #Hindu population worldwide is approx 1.2 billion. Expected #Hindu population in 2060 will be nearly 1.5 billion.

Real reasons for #conflict are buried in history & intermittently ooze out like hot lava from fissures. #Europe's been an active conflict zone for long born out of a stiff #RomanHangover ever since the #Empire collapsed.#Theopolitics is 1 ingredient in its conflict cocktail

Conflict in #Europe has to be understood in that context before jumping in & taking sides. Colonial times afforded no option & the world got involved twice converting #EuropeanConflict's into #WorldWar's. Many unconcerned died. India lost many braves from #Gallipoli to #Siam

#Ukraine is the latest in a tiring list & has many players beyond just army & politicians. Eastern Orthodox Church, Greek Catholic Church, Patriarchies of Moscow, Constantinople & Kyiv & that west & east of #Dnieper think differently.. all making up the hidden factors

#Israel restricts access to #Christians & #Muslims worshipers: on Al-Aqsa daily but also to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, within the walls of the Old City of #Jerusalem, & attacked worshipers with weapons. Israel claims to be "democratic". @Pontifex
#Disgusting #Terrorism
#Israel doesn't care about the significance of Al-Aqsa and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, named after the resurrection of Jesus, the holiest and most important church in the Christian world, according to Christian beliefs, contains the place where Jesus was buried.
Masjid Al-Aqsa is located in the Old City of Jerusalem in #Palestine. Its name translates as ‘the Farthest Mosque’ and includes the Dome of the Rock, 17 gates and 4 minarets, usually referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif, which means ‘the Noble Sanctuary’.

#UkraineWar

The Ukrainian neo-Nazi and neo-pagan group #Azov is funded by Ukrainian Jewish #oligarchs: naspravdi.info/novosti/komu-p…
2/10
The Jewish oligarchs are Talmudists and for them Gentiles are less of an enemy than #Christians. This is reflected in their Talmud.

1. I reported on the first Russo-Ukrainian war starting with the Maidan Jan 2014. After Merkel & Macron's Minsk I and II, I focused on Syria in a belief that ISIS was a Russian and Iranian operation to destroy Syrian Sunnis political unity. I worked to arm and assist the Kurds.
2. The force grew and establishment of the #SDF brought #Sunni #Arabs, #Christians & #Turkmen to join a single umbrella force with US airpower taking back large parts of #Syria. They still hold it much of it but #Putin gave large parts to #Erdogan who folded in ISIS & Al-#Qaeda
3. and along with #Russia, #Turkey, #Iran and #Assad act as a sort of overwatch. With US SOF and Bradleys from the 4th ID there as democracy's last hope.

When the Battle for Raqqa started in 2017, I observed ISIS military leadership made up of mostly Chechens started to leave.

AN INESTIMABLE TREASURE

-thread-
1. The beginning of true virtue is most ardently to desire it, and to ask it of God with the utmost assiduity and earnestness, and considering riches as nothing in comparison with this our only and inestimable treasure. Fervent prayer,

2. holy meditation, and reading pious books, are the principal means by which it is to be constantly improved, and the interior life of the soul to be strengthened. (From Fr Butler's Lives of the Saints)
3. PRECIOUS TIME

Is it possible that so many Christians, capable of finding in God their sovereign felicity, should amuse themselves with pleasures which flatter the senses, with reading profane books, and seeking an empty satisfaction in idle visits,

Some of the Similarities between the #Jews and #Raafidah:
The Jews say:"It is not correct that a King come from a progeny other than Dawud.
The Raafidah say: "It isn't correct that leadership is from anyone other than the Sons of Ali"
The Jews say: There is no Jihad...1

The Raafidah say: There is no Jihad in the path of Allaah until the #Mahdi appears and calls to #Jihad from the sky.

... The Jews Delay their Prayer up until the stars of the night appear.
and the Raafidah would delay their #Maghrib #Prayer up until the stars appeared.

Self Deception and How to Avoid It

OF ALL FORMS OF DECEPTION, self-deception is the most deadly, and of all deceived persons the self-deceived are the least likely to discover the fraud.

The reason for this is simple. ..
When a man is deceived by another he is deceived against his will. He is contending against an adversary and is temporarily the victim of the other's guile. Since he expects his foe to take advantage of him he is watchful and quick to suspect trickery. ..
Under such circumstances it is possible to be deceived sometimes and for a short while, but because the victim is resisting he may break out of the trap and escape before too long.

With the self-deceived it is quite different. He is his own enemy ..

#wednesdaythought for true believers in our #Lord #Jesus #Christ, We should not only pray to God but also learn all the more to praise God. We need to see the significance of praise at the very beginning of our #Christian walk. We must praise God unceasingly. ..
David received #Grace from God to praise seven times a day. It is a good exercise, a very good lesson, and a very good spiritual practice to praise God every day. We(#Christians) should learn to praise God when we get up early in the morning. ..
We should learn to praise Him when we encounter problems, when we are at a meeting, or when we are alone. We should praise God at least seven times a day. Do not let David beat us(#Christians) in his praise. ..

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

#MythologyMonday - Hermes🧚‍♂️📨💪

(1/8) One of the twelve Olympians and the herald of the gods, Hermes also played the role of protector of human heralds, travellers, thieves and merchants.

#Classics #ClassicsTwitter #Hermes #Greek #Myth #Gods
(2/8) In Greek mythology, Hermes was the son of Zeus and Maia. In reality, he appears to have emerged in Mycenaean Greece in the Late Bronze Age. His name first appears in Linear B syllabic script as "hermāhās", and he may have been adopted from Mesopotamia.
(3/8) Beyond his role as messenger, Hermes was also able to freely move between the realms of mortals and the divine. As such, he also played the role of psychopomp, or "soul guide", directing the souls of the dead into Hades.

1. @JamaalBowmanNY says these @HouseDemocrats support removing US forces from #Syria. IMO that will let #Turkey murder #Kurds, #Christians & #Yazidi & install al-Qaeda terror zone. @RepRoKhanna @RepPeterDeFazio @Janshakowsky @RashidaTlaib @RepAndyLevin @RepCohen @RepRitchie
2. These members may be misguided. Lied to by #Turkey's lobbyists. Let them know, their support for Bowman's misguided #NDAA amendment could end their careers. Support all secular, democratic and gender equal Syria. Reject the enslavement of women.
3. The Syrians have done the fighting. We are in a purely advise and assist role. There have been almost no US force combat casualties in Syria. This was the one war we fought smart with local support who died by the thousands while we lost almost zero combat casualties.
