#Saudi #MBS front led by charlatan @alishihabi is shutting. It should have been investigated by @USTreasury for violations @ChrisMurphyCT
The press should ask Shihsbi, a bankrupted businessman who wasted hi father’s money in failed #Dubai investments.He should also be asked about his connection to #Saud AlQahtani who was calling him with orders incl publicly shaming his own actress daughter for steamy scene
#Saudi front @ArabiaFdn closed because it ls Saudi funding was about to be exposed & ita direct line from #MBS . No donors or board decision was behind it.

#UPDATE: After exhaustive search, I believe that the tanker likely hijacked by #Iran over the weekend was owned/chartered by KB&R Inc., a #US military defense contractor and petroleum engineering company with headquarters in #Dubai, the home port of the ship.
No company named KRB as listed in the article operates out of Dubai, but KB&R (since the name is an agglomeration of three names, the letters can be switched) has two offices in downtown Dubai.
KB&R also has a history of subcontracting tankers for the US military, which matches up with the detail that it was chartered by KB&R through an Iraqi company.

14. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

#Hypocrites #DoubleStandards #Liars #Warlords #USRealTerrorists
Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

Last week, Pope Francis & grand imam of al-Azhar signed a “historic pledge of fraternity”in the #UAE. In light of misogyny they oversee, the patriarchs in robes can kiss & hold hands & pledge love to the “fraternity”: they are dangerous to women & children theguardian.com/world/2019/feb…
- Vatican & al-Azhar prohibit ordination of women
- Priests rape & sexually abuse nuns & children
- Al-Azhar is furious #Tunisia wants to make inheritance equal btwn men & women
- Ruler of #Dubai has forcibly repatriated 2 of his daughters after escape & holds them vs their will Pope Francis & grand Imam of Azhar kissingPope Francis with an official of UAE
Why are the pledges these men sign presented to us as great achievements to celebrate? For whose benefit arevthose pledges? The rot of misogyny and abuse these men oversee must not be camouflaged by “pledges of fraternity.”

“There is a lot of interest in fleeing #Saudi women at the moment but the situation for #Emirati and other women in the #Gulf is often just as bad.” As I often asked about Rahaf’s story: what are these countries doing to women that makes them seek asylum? theguardian.com/world/2019/feb…
“women remain second class citizens in the #UAE, where the concept of “male guardianship,” incorporated in UAE law,” @hrw hrw.org/news/2015/03/0…
#UAE abuses are too often overlooked because of the flashy facade and glitz of #Dubai and because it is not as big as or as influential as regional behemoth #Saudi Arabia. Look closer and pay attention.

They can sign all the “pledges of fraternity” they want, but where is the pledge to women? These are patriarchs who continue to oppose women’s ordination, leadership and equality theguardian.com/world/2019/feb… Pope Francis in the UAEPope Francis and the Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar kissing
- In the #UAE, the ruler of #Dubai has reportedly forcibly repatriated 2 of his daughters who tried to escape & is holding them vs their will
- Vatican & al-Azhar prohibit ordination of women
- Al-Azhar is furious that #Tunisia wants to make inheritance equal between men & women
So, I ask the Patriarchs in robes: WHERE IS THE PLEDGE OF SORORITY?

Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum - daughter of the ruler of #Dubai - vanished in February, apparently attempting to escape the #UAE. This is the story of the tape she left behind. theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2…
The story of the Emirati princess who tried to escape twice but was forcibly repatriated, whose sister tried to escape and was also forcibly repatriated, is horrific. And makes you ask: how much worse for ordinary women in the #UAE?
It is a horrific story and one which must also force questions about #Dubai and its glitzy image: “Latifa says her role as a PR coup for modern Dubai – she was fond of skydiving, which was reported as a sign of her freedom – is a sham.” #UAE

“I’ve been mistreated & oppressed all of my life...Women are treated like subhumans. My father...can’t continue to do what he’s been doing to us all” Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum,daughter of #Dubai ruler.Imagine how much worse for ordinary women theguardian.com/world/2018/dec…
Latifa is 2nd of Sheikh’s daughters to try to flee life of caged luxury &then vanish after reports of recapture.Her older sister,Shamsa,was seized on streets of Cambridge after fleeing family’s Surrey estate in 2000,in apparent abduction never fully investigated by British police
Latifa‘s bid to escape & her repatriation w/assistance of foreign govt reminds me of #Saudi Dina Ali Lasloum who tried to escape forced marriage but was detained at Manila airport until uncles came, beat her up, dragged her onto plane home w/limbs bound google.com/amp/s/www.nyti…

Thread 👇triggered many questions:

1-How can Syrian leadership resume relations with #Saudi after its support of the Opp?

2-What about #Iran and will Tehran feel betrayed?

3-What about #Russia and how might this potential shift impact Turkish/Russian relations?

Answers ==>
2-On #Saudi : No question that Riyadh/Damascus rapprochement is difficult to foresee. Note that this shift is being led #UAE and not Saudi. Riyadh is expected to follow and yes, reluctantly. Damascus is just as easy about this given Saudi’s early support of the Opp. BUT ==>
3-When discussing Riyadh/Damascus, it’s critical to think about Qatari/Saudi schism. If forced to choose, who should Damascus side with? Answer: #Saudi . Why? #Qatar is ardent supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood (enemy of both Damascus & Riyadh). Doha is also still supporting Opp
