🛑 Quand un maire #LR, proche de Laurent #Wauquiez, est accusé de favoriser l’implantation d’une école islamiste dans de nouveaux locaux à #Valence.
➡️ Retour sur une polémique qui devrait s’inviter au prochain conseil municipal de la ville. Un thread ⤵️
2 L’école musulmane #IQRA est un établissement confessionnel privé hors contrat, géré par l’association Valeurs et Réussite et dont les locaux sont situés dans la mosquée Al Fourquane de #Valence.
3 Elle s’intègre dans 1 tissu associatif local constitué de plusieurs associations évoluant dans la mouvance des Frères musulmans (l’1 des courants de l’islamisme), dont L’ouverture, L’Institut La Plume et Amana, regroupées dans le Collectif pour la connaissance de l’islam (CPCI)

Vielleicht ist Aussage von #Erdogan ein Wendepunkt. Was die Konturen einer internat. Lösung sein müssten ist mE ohnehin sehr klar. Wiederherstellung der territorialen Souveränität der Ukraine (ggf bei Demilitarisierung des Ostens bzw tatsächliche Umsetzung…
Minsk Prozess), internationale Sicherheitsgarantien für die Ukraine bei Verzicht auf NATO-Mitgliedschaft, Schutz von russischer Sprache und beschränkte regionale Selbstverwaltung im Osten der Ukraine, Rückbau Sanktionen.
Auch wenn Putin dann zu Hause ein paar Schwierigkeiten haben wird zu erklären wozu es diesen Krieg brauchte. Ich vermute die Ankündigung der Referenden im Osten ist jetzt panischer Versuch Verhandlungsmasse zu schaffen! Sollte es irgendwann eine solche Lösung geben,

Mit #Aserbaidschan greift gerade ein mit Erdöl- und Erdgasmilliarden hochgerüsteter Autokratenstaat, der erfolgreich die #CDU besto....ähm “lobbyiert” hat seinen (demokratischen) Nachbarn an. Reicht das als Reminder wie dringend wir aus den Fossilen raus müssen?

Und es wird noch hässlicher da im Hintergrund #Erdogan #Aserbaidschan mit Drohnen und anderen Waffen beliefert, um seine Machsphäre auszuweiten während die Armenier 1915 Opfer eines der schlimmsten Genozide der Geschichte wurden. Durch die Jungtürken und das osmanische Reich...
Und in Armenien wiederum sitzt #Putin mit am Tisch als naja unwillige „Schutzmacht“ der Armenier, die gerade andere Probleme hat und die weder von den Armeniern geliebt wird noch sich ernsthaft für die Armenier interessiert. Putin vs. Erdogan: The fight of our lives...

On #Egypt’s Sisi visit to #Qatar:
This visit signals a start of an era of pragmatism— a post Muslim Brotherhood era 1/
Unlike 2017, the #Muslim #Brotherhood as a group, is severely weakened, and becomes irrelevant to the relations between Qatar and Egypt.
Its fans can mock Sisi’s visit to Doha but their barks mean nothing on the ground 2/
What’s on the agenda in Doha is not just economic relations as Islamists claim, but there are several political topics on the agenda, like #Gaza, #Sudan, and most importantly #Libya 3/

Germany’s strategic blunders in its relationship with #Russia are currently hurting all of Europe. We take a look at the parallel relationship between #Germany and #Turkey and the real risks this poses for the West. A thread by #theHELC #NoSubsForTurkey 1/17 Image
The German / Turkish relationship dates from before #WWI, when the #YoungTurks turned to Germany as the most plausible international ally for their decomposing Empire. A secret treaty between the two powers was concluded on August 2, 1914 2/17
The German #Kaiser #WilhelmII visited the #OttomanEmpire three times in total, pledging to the Sultan and the '300 million Mohammedans scattered over the globe and revering in him their caliph, that the German Emperor will be and remain at all times their friend' 3/17 Image

Los abusos en la legislación contra las Fake News y los discursos de odio. Cómo los regímenes autoritarios construyeron la cancelación política para silenciar a los que piensan distinto.
#Hilo para exponer los próximos meses en Argentina.
Se puso de moda hablar de #fakenews y discursos de odio en Argentina especialmente desde el aparente ataque a cfk. Pero ¿cuándo una noticia es #fake y cuándo un hecho es tildado como fake porque a alguien le conviene?...ese es el centro de la cuestión.
La red de periodismo ético define a las noticias falsas como "aquella información creada y publicada para engañar o poner en duda hechos verificables". Es información que alguien fabrica y la difunde entre una audiencia que se la va a creer y la va a replicar.

On Friday, September 2, #Russian President #Putin held an operational meeting with permanent members of the Russian Security Council. After the main part of the meeting, Putin continued to discuss several topics in a narrow circle.
At the beginning of the closed part of the meeting, Security Council Secretary #Patrushev reported on the situation at the front, focusing on the precarious position of #RussianArmy in several sectors of the front.
Also, #Patrushev provided alternative data on the losses of Western weapons that were provided to #Ukraine. These data differed significantly downwards from the data of the General Staff and the Ministry of Defense of the #Russian Federation.

reuters story about how #erdogan tamed #turkey's newsrooms. it boggles the mind why #kurdish #media are not even mentioned, despite them playing a big role in getting important stories out. #journalism…
it's an institutionalized story from @reuters. example: if you check which papers don't get state advertising anymore as a financial punishment, you won't stumble upon #kurdish #media because they never got it in the first place - and would refuse it. #journalism
also the piece lacks historical perspective. it only says '... the turkish mainstream #media, once a more lively clash of ideas'. not really. some reporters have covered real stories about the #kurdish issue but the editorial lines always followed the state narrative - willingly.

6 months into #Russia’s aggression against #Ukraine, there are mostly losers.

One potential winner is #Turkey, given 2nd-order effects of the war.

Since Feb, Ankara has gained some leverage vis-a-vis both #Russia and #NATO.

An attempt at a (complicated) balance sheet🧵(1/18)
Since Feb, #Turkey has attempted a careful balancing act on #RussiaUkraineWar:
-No sanctions against #Russia
-No boycott of Russian #gas
-#Erdogan engaging #Putin frequently & visibly
-Giving #Ukraine #BayraktarTB2
-Invoking Montreux Convention

I could go on and on (2/18)
As a result of
1) Turkey successfully mediating grain exports from Ukraine ports &
2) #Russia increasingly shunning traditional mediation platforms (Geneva),
Turkey is poised to become chief intermediary on operational issues re #RussiaUkraineWar… (3/18)

So TFG is in deep trouble for intentional mishandling of classified documents — which BTW is exactly what he said Hillary Clinton should be ‘locked up’ for back in 2016. #Hypocrisy

#TrumpIsANationalSecurityRisk #TrumpStoleClassifiedDocuments #TrumpIsATraitor #LockHimUpNow
2/during his reign of terror, he was found to have obstructed justice, extorted Ukraine by “perfect”call & held back military aid 4 a #quidproquo

He abandoned Kurds & left them to💀for oil apparently to appease #Erdogan for not allowing a dissident 2 b kidnapped off 🇺🇸 streets!
3/he released 5000 Taliban prisoners & gifted Afghanistan to the Taliban setting womens rights back 200 yrs — all w/out consulting Afghanistan’s leaders. Set arbitrary date 4 troop withdraw that screwed over everybody in the end & allowed Taliban to take over the country.

6 months into #RussiaInvadedUkraine in 🇺🇦, let’s take another look at 🇺🇦🇷🇺 #negotiations. In his latest address #Zelensky referred to preparations for a show trial against 🇺🇦 soldiers in #Mariupol. 1/11…
This, he said, would “eliminate the possibility of talks with 🇷🇺”.

Mariupol also played an important role in the failure of the initial negotiation phase in May. Talks had already come to a near stand-still when the battle of Mariupol ended ... 2/11
... with the surrender of the defenders of the #Azovstal iron and steel works on 16/05. Up to 1700 🇺🇦 soldiers fell into 🇷🇺 captivity, facing threats of tough punishment, including #Medvedev’s infamous musings about the death penalty. 3/11

1️⃣ I go against most analyst concerning the interpretation of the latest statements from #Turkish officials on the #Syria|n issue. Here are some of the points:

➡️ I don't believe these statements are directed towards #Assad regime rather than #Russia

➡️ #Moscow can block/ hinder #Tukiye's anticipated military op. #Putin pressured #Turkiye to contact #Assad to resolve the issue in the North

➡️ Türkiye is showing #Russia that it is trying but Assad is not committed to resolve any of the serious issues in #Syria

➡️ #Turkiye wil tell #Russia later: either you pressure #Assad or we launch op

➡️ 🇹🇷's communication w Assad Intel ws a result of pressure from Russia. It didn't prevent 🇹🇷 though from launching military ops or targeting regime. It ws designed 2 withdraw any objection frm 🇷🇺

1. If our @NATO alliance prevents us from standing up to #Erdogan we are morally obligated to arm the #SDF with heavy weapons and anti-air capabilities to fight off the unprovoked #Turkish aggression in N Syria. The Syrian people and fighters of the #SDF earned that
2. much with their blood in Kobane, Raqqa and Baghuz. More SDF died fighting ISIS for us in Syria than US forces in all the years in Afghanistan. We have a force that believes in freedom, democratic rule and equality of all people. If we abandon them to the autocratic racist
3. Erdogan to be slaughtered we will lose the ability to convince others to join us in the fights against terror. Erdogan is a bully and if we give in to him we desecrate the memory of the people who died in the war on terror. He is allied with both Al-#Qaeda and #Daesh and

#Erdoğan:“Bizim Esed’i yenmek,yenmemek gibi bir derdimiz yok”

-2012’de Şam’a ne yapmaya gidiyordunuz!?

-Cihatçı teröristlerden oluşan bir ordu kurdunuz ve Suriye’de bir mezhep savaşı başlatıp Alevi katliamı yapacaktınız

-Komşu ülkeyi işgal etmeyi planlarken,Türkiye elden gitti Image
-Suriye’de,aşiret ve cihatçı teröristlerden Beşar Esad’ı devirmek için bir ordu kurdunuz ve 10 yıldır bu teröristlere dolarla maaş ödüyorsunuz!

-Şimdi de;bu teröristlerle Beşar Esad’ı barıştıracağız diyorsunuz. Beşar Esad,10 yıldır katliam yapan bu teröristlerle neden barışsın?
Şunun şurasında birkaç aynız kaldı,10 yıldır ülkesini işgal etmek isteyen biri ile Beşar Esad neden barışsın? Birkaç ay daha bekler ve yeni Cumhurbaşkanı/Hükumetle barış masasına oturur

-Mısır,İsrail,BAE de aynısını yapacak. Bu girişimleriniz doğru ama çok geç artık

1. I'm no #Assad fan. He is a brutal dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people. But we learned what happens if you destroy a nation's defense force after defeating dictators in #Germany and in #Iraq. What comes is either subjugation to a predator like the USSR or chaos
2. in the form of something like #Daesh. The #Turkish attack on the Syrian #Arab Republic forces near #Kobane is an act of an aggressor nation seeking to subjugate #Syria so it can commit genocide against #Yazidi, #Kurds and #Christians. @NATO cannot permit #Erdogan to hold
3. our collective morality and best interests hostage while he uses #Finland and #Sweden's accession as means to extort complicity in his crimes. Tell #Erdogan if he attacks Syria every member of @NATO will terminate their #Article5 obligations to #Turkey and cast the neo-

Some thoughts about the #Turkey membership in #NATO, its relationship with The West and the prospect of how it might going forwards.
Especially considering the problems with The West over #Russia, #Finland and #Sweden.
With #Erdogan in power, it is similar to #Russia's #Putin and his #Russia. #Turkiye got a leader that is only seeking the best results for his people. At the beginning the best development of Turkiye might have been a close relationship with The West. Yes.
But the circumstances changed.
The first very heavy and deep blow in the relationship was the coup, that took place against #Erdogan, that was staged by #NATO. Erdoğan was saved by #Russia|n information, that he got several hours in advance. It was the first and major trigger

1. I think it's important to recognize that this was likely #Putin's idea that he sold to #Erdogan in their #Sochi meeting.

"We will not reconcile" .. Night demonstrations in the liberated areas of northern Syria, in rejection of the statements of the Turkish Foreign Minister.
2. Remember, #Kadyrov was there. Could it be intended to expose the people who will never play ball so Kadyrov's crew can assassinate them? I'm not sure they are that clever but it is always worth considering. Putin is reported to be in a dream world where he fantasizes victories
3. are coming soon. It's possible Putin is that out of touch to not realize what the #Syrian opposition is really thinking. Also, #Assad has been on the rehabilitation tour and may also believe that because the corrupt #GulfState leaders are willing to forget his

The drill ship #AbdulHamidHan, #Erdogan’s latest vanity project in a country where 15 million people suffer from hunger, was launched yesterday. But who was #AbdulHamid after whom the vessel was named? A thread on the #BloodySultan and the #HamidianMassacres by #theHELC 1/12
Abdul Hamid II was Sultan of the #Ottoman Empire from 1876 to 1909. During his reign, unrest amongst his oppressed subjects in the #Balkans and Asia Minor intensified. His barbaric response would culminate in the massacres of #Armenians and #Assyrians of 1894–1896 2/12
After #Turkey’s defeat in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878, it was agreed in the conference of #Berlin that Russia would evacuate the Armenian populated territories of the Ottoman Empire in return for the implementation of reforms to protect the local population 3/12

#Erdogan is under pressure to negotiate with #Assad.

You might think no way, right?

After all, he tried his best to topple Assad militarily. He harbors and supports many of al-Assad's opponents. He called al-Assad once a terrorist.

The master of u-turns could well do it. 1/3
Erdogan is incredibly pragmatic, which partly explains his long career at the helm of Turkey. Remember the downing of the Russian jet 7 years ago?

Remember his position from Egypt's Sisi and how he caved later on? His position from Saudi Arabia following Khashoggi's murder?

I believe he's seriously considering reconciling with Assad.

Assad might be Erdogan's golden card for the next elections: a way to
- facilitate the return of Syrian refugees in Turkey
- bring the Kurdish elements opposed to Turkey (YPG) in northeast Syria under control.

a- Why does everybody blame @hbarkey? What kind of ‘journalist’ is she who uses #Erdogan’s terminology (manidar: meaningful )? What is her intellectual level? : “ with a malicious intent..., an operation with a malicious intent...”. On the one hand, she says Kavala is
b- NOT in jail because of this dinner. On the other, she blames @hbarkey for not sharing this information earlier with Kavala’s lawyers. If this info was of great importance, why she did not make such a statement or share this info with the lawyers, the prosecutor‘s office or
c- the court. @hbarkey can only be blamed for considering her as a ‘friend’. People like her use him for their interest, then sell him out.
