Where is the outrage against #Turkey's dictator Erdogan who has jailed 240 reporters including prominent journalists in their old ages that would surely die in prison. Does he have to dismember their bodies to get an international outcry. #Khashoggi stockholmcf.org/updated-list/
Nazli Ilicak, 74-year old veteran journalist, author and columnist, is condemned to life sentence for her critical writings about #Erdogan gov't. She is described by the regime as terrorist when there is no evidence to support this absurd allegation.
Ahmet Altan, 68-year old prolific writer, editor, and columnist, is sentenced to aggravated life time in jail because he stood up against #Erdogan regime and spoke against rights violations in #Turkey.

1️⃣ Let’s see if @IlhanMN knows what she’s talking about,

This is a simple challenge:

What is moral compass? What is the definition?

In fact, #Leftists, #MBrotherhood use the same tactic where they sink people in floating terminologies.

#ThinkArabian
2️⃣ Before we’re dragged 2 deception, we should ask the essential questions that #Leftists & #MBrotherhood are not able 2 answer, so we can educate people to expose scams that leads 2 division through glamorous terms like peace, human rights, freedoms and justice.
#ThinkArabian
3️⃣ #Leftists & #MBrotherhood led by #Obama, #Hillary supported the largest wave of violence in ME, stretching Arabian Gulf 2 Atlantic, leaving millions of dead, wounded & displaced, yet they’re bragging about values ​​of humanity without a shred of shame.

President Erdogan to reveal information about the killing of Jamal #Khashoggi as Saudi investment conference kicks off in Riyadh. We'll be watching media in both countries for updates.
The Saudi conference - dubbed #DavosInTheDesert - has kicked off in Riyadh.
Turkey's Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin has said the #Khashoggi scandal is not only an issue between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but about "shedding light on an atrocious murder.”

The systematic cover up on torture and ill-treatment in #Turkey's detention and prisons where victims denied reports and examinations was officially exposed:
Turkish Council of Forensic Medicine examined only 22 such cases in 2017 out of 316,619 total examinations it conducted.
In Ankara, #Turkey's capital, Forensic examiners investigated 33,607 cases in 2017 but not a single one is releated with torture or ill-treatment. Yet the torture allegations are widespread in the province where intelligence agency abducts people and torture for days and weeks.
In Istanbul where police headquarters in Vatan is notorious for torture cells and so many victim accounts verified widespread practices of ill-treatment, not a single case was examined by Forensic authority which reviewed 112,870 cases in 2017.

Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

1. Obvious that @realDonaldTrump & his incompetent @WhiteHouse legal team think that avoids criminal liability. But under 18 U.S. Code § 1119 it's murder of "national of the United States" defined under Immigration law that includes a green card holder. I researched it re #Afrin.
2. Reported #Khashoggi had a Green Card so, to go to Turkey, he needed to seek a Form I-131 Re-entry Permit or (NB not immigration practitioner) IMO he would self-deport. Trump's behavior & focus on status is tell he had some knowledge of the murder. Love to play poker with him.
3. The close timing of the alleged murder with the release of #PastorAndrewBrunson is flashing as a big red light. #Erdogan would love to de-stabilize KSA. His alliance with Al-Qaeda makes Turkey de jure at war with US via the 2001AUMF. Trump takes money from KSA and Turkey.

Now here is my Memo:
It seems that we have some forgotten facts about #Kashoggi’s disappearance, so I decided to remind whoever is reading this. #Kashoggi disappeared on October 2nd, what happened the next day? Shots fired near Fathullah Gulen’s home in Pennsylvania..
Gulen is known to be Erdogan’s no.1 enemy and an opposition figure to Erdogan. On Otober 3rd, President #Erdogan called the press an enemy, viciously attacked them by saying that they are the rulers, and say no democracy would work with an operating media.Heres is full text ..
Of some of what he said “I have seen that these giant countries are being governed by the media and not by their leaders. Because whenever I spoke with them they were saying, ‘Our media says this, our media writes that.’ And I told them, ‘Just forget the media, tell me what ..

A little perspective on the #Khashoggi disappearance

Killing or kidnapping journalists is awful. But not more awful than doing it to any other person

But since it is one of the media's own we have a completely disproportionate reaction

foxnews.com/politics/rand-…
It also involves a major new #Trump ally #SaudiArabia and there seems to be a coordinated effort to attack them now as my colleague @davereaboi points out

The immediate acceptance of accusations from Turkish state security about this incident was absurd. All the major media outlets blindly accepted this story as if #Erdogan was a reliable source

What he is
Is one of the world's largest killers & jailers of journalists

Thread:

Diese Bilder, wie die Bodyguards von #Erdoğan in #Köln die Straßen kontrollierten, kennt ihr. Es gab viel Aufregung. Wie schon letzte Woche angekündigt, gibt es dazu neue Erkenntnisse. @ndr berichtet auch schon darüber ( ndr.de/nachrichten/ha… ), aber es geht um mehr.
"Harmankaya und seine Truppe hatten die Straße mit Flatterband der Polizei abgesperrt und einen Skandal ausgelöst: Ein Einsatzleiter der Kölner Polizei kritisierte, dass türk. Sicherheitskräfte in Deutschland keine hoheitlichen Aufgaben übernehmen dürften" ndr.de/nachrichten/ha…
Aber "Team Yörükoğlu", wie sich diese Gruppe nennt (unten ein Bild von Erdoğans Flieger, wo niemand ungeprüft hingelangt),sind keine "Sicherheitskräfte",sondern "Freiwillige",wie sie sich selbst nennen.

Auf dem Bild auch gut zu erkennen: Handzeichen der Grauen Wölfe & Islamisten

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

The Reichstag Warning ⚠️⚠️⚠️

By @TimothyDSnyder
THREAD ✔
On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began.
1/
#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. “There will be no mercy now,” he exulted. “Anyone standing in our way will be cut down.”
2/
The next day, at Hitler’s advice and urging, the #German #president issued a decree “for the protection of the people and the state.”

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

In order to understand the #Idlib “de-escalation agreement”, one must understand the nature of relationship between #Putin & #Erdogan. Best to think of both leaders as being engaged right now. Not yet in a full marriage but neither is ready to walk away from each other just yet=>
2-Engagements don’t last forever. They either end in marriage or in walking away for good. This engagement phase will be tested over the coming months as Erdogan is expected to deliver on promises he made to his partner.
3-Naturally, Syrian Leadership is watching this engagement phase very closely. The base case scenario in Damascus appears to expect Erdogan to experience significant challenges in delivering on the promises he made to his partner. The coming few months will prove to be decisive

Short THREAD on #Russia - #Turkey divergences over #Idlib as seen from #Moscow:
1. In early August I described rationale behind RU positon & that "certain level of understanding reached w/ TUR that there should be no [large-scale] offensive on Idlib [then]"almon.co/338t
2.I recently reached out to the same senior RUS diplomat who reiterated #Moscow's bottom-line desire to settle the issue peacefully except for terrorists organization who he argued #Turkey too agreed to fight as part of AStana agreements.Yesterday,RU #Syria envoy Lavrentyev..

Erdogan in an op-ed in @WSJ :

“Moderate rebels played a key role in Turkey’s fight against terrorists in Northern #Syria; their assistance and guidance will be crucial in Idlib as well”
2-Erdogan: “Preventing the assault on #Idlib need not set back counter-terrorism efforts. Turkey has succeeded in fighting terrorist groups, including ISIS and the PKK, without harming or displacing civilians”

Notice how he doesn’t include Nusra /al-Qaeda in above group
3- Erdogan: “Turkey’s ability to maintain order in Northern #Syria is proof that a responsible approach to counter-terrorism can win hearts and minds”

My take-away from #TehranSummit this far is #Russia, #Turkey, #Iran each, by & large, can be satisfied w/ its outcomes. #Moscow & #Tehran realized #Erdogan has bigger assets & higher stakes in #Idlib than, say, in southern #Syria where he let #Assad get the opposition, thus..
..the idea for the summit was to get a deal where all the 3 can secure their bottom-line interests.They didn't fully achieve it since there will be another round of trilateral talks (some time in the future in #Russia) and the parties hope to settle #Idlib issue in #Tehran but..
..(a) #Turkey maintained credibility of the oppoaition (by that good cop-bad cop thing #Erdogan & #Putun played), (b) #Russia got his promise to deal w/ those attacking #Hmeymim (c) #Ankara received time to settle the major task of assorting militants (d)..

La #Turchia bombarda #Sinjar ed uccide Mam Zaki, uno degli eroi che salvò decine di migliaia di #ezidi dal genocidio dell'#ISIS.

#thread
1) Una notizia terribile, l'ennesimo crimine atroce e disumano della #Turchia contro il popolo curdo.
Ieri intorno alle 16 un raid turco ha colpito alcuni veicoli (pare 3) delle forze di autodifesa ezide #YBS che stavano tornando dalla commemorazione del massacro di #Kocho.
2) Tra il 3 ed il 15 Agosto 2014 il villaggio di #Kocho nei pressi di #Sinjar rimane sotto assedio da parte dell'ISIS.
Tra il 15 Agosto e le prime ore del 16 Agosto i miliziani dell'#ISIS entrarono nel villaggio. Radunarono tutta la popolazione, circa 1700 persone, nella scuola.

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.
