🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

Confronting Russia’s Role in Transnational White Supremacist Extremism justsecurity.org/68420/confront… via @just_security
A member of the neo-Nazi terror network the Base told a federal prosecutor in December that he believed the group’s leader, known then as Norman Spear, was a Russian spy.
Though Nazzaro’s relationship with the Russian government remains uncertain, these reports point to a broader trend: a mutual affection between Western white supremacists and the Russian government.

Germany outlaws #neoNazi group 'Combat 18' Deutschland +
200+ police officers carry out raids in six German states, seizing cellphones, computers, unspecified weaponry, Nazi memorabilia and #propaganda

p.dw.com/p/3Wfsm?maca=e…
Germany banned the neo-Nazi group Combat 18 Deutschland in what the country's top security official said was a “clear message” against the growing far-right #extremism in the country.
The group had spread “far-right extremism and anti-Semitic hatred” in German society by producing neo-Nazi music and staging concerts for extremist bands, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

"Temporary cessation" Who are you kidding?
Its a fucking ban.
MDN is the only NGO that works as an HRD on the most sensitive HR issues in Maldives.
The govt has succumbed to the pressure from local terrorists - much of those are allegedly revealed in the controversial report.
The #Maldives govt has failed to take action against those who spread hate and threaten people behind a religious facade.
"The maintenance of public order and communal harmony"... what a load of crap!
The govt has effectively #empowered the #terrorists by banning the only HRD NGO who dared assess the rising #extremism and #radicalism in #Maldives.
Now the terrorists are attacking whoever who recognised the NGO's sincere work since 2004.

The following is a timeline of instances of #extremism in the Trump administration in September 2019.
Trump has opened the White House doors to #extremism, not only consulting with #hategroups on policies that erode our country’s civil rights protections ... splcenter.org/20171004/frequ…

10 years ago #DHS sent American law enforcement agencies an intelligence briefing warning of a rising threat of #domestic #RightWing #extremism, including #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.
#economicrecession & election of America’s 1st #blackpresident fertile ground #radicalization
Military #veterans returning from #Iraq & #Afghanistan, would be attractive #targets for #recruitment, #Republican #politicians & #conservativepundits reacted with outrage & demanded a retraction. The small team of domestic terrorism analysts who had produced report was disbanded
and analysts were reassigned to study #Muslim #extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the career federal intelligence analyst who had led the team, By the next year, Johnson had been forced out of the #DHS altogether..

Check out “Before & After” #USA Meddling: From #Iraq to #Afghanistan #Libya & #Syria. Missions Accomplished? Numbers & Facts. - - - “Nearly 4,000 Afghan civilians killed or wounded in first half of 2019, UN says” sabahdai.ly/1dh6z9
...And then define that “Mission”. Interestingly, 3 out of 4, targeted the “Only” Secular nation’s in the #MiddleEast: #Iraq #Libya #Syria & Brought to them #Extremism. Now compare these to #USA chummy allies: #SaudiArabia #Kuwait #UAE.
How can you let them tell you “liberation” when in action it is supporting, spreading & sustaining: #Wahhabism #Sharia #Extremism #Terrorism (aka #alQaeda #ISIS)? How can anyone with half a gram of brain swallow and allow these atrocities in their name & tax-money?!

Interesting findings in this @CTPSR_Coventry research as well as moments for reflection. Despite coordinated campaigns to 'toxify' #Prevent (see pic) and concerns raised by some unions and human rights NGOs, there is not the opposition expected, but rather positive acceptance /1
👉🏽 82% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the #Prevent Duty was about all forms of #extremism
👉🏽 "Scant evidence of expressed oppositions to the duty"
👉🏽 Rather than a "chilling effect" on classrooms, 41% said the Prevent duty had led to *more open* discussions /2
👉🏽 54.5% respondents agreed or strongly agreed that #Prevent duty is a "proportionate response to a clearly identified problem"
There were multiple comments that the duty 'helped to enhance student safety' and 'provided opportunities to reinvigorate work around citizenship' /3

Today the German federal annual intelligence report 2018 was released. The report belongs to the most important resources on #extremism and #terrorism in #Germany. You can find the full report online here: bit.ly/2IR48QE following #thread will give you the essentials.
Right-wing extremist crimes in 2018 among others: 6 attempted murders, 938 assaults, 11 arson attacks. No explosive attacks or completed murders. Increased in assault, robberies and violent resistance against arrest. Decrease in arson and explosives.
Still: 1,088 #xrw violent crimes in 2018. That's almost 3 per day. Most attacks directed against foreigners and left-wingers.

One of the reasons of the retardation of Arabs and falling behind (and make them worthless in all worlds) is that they do not know a thing called (neutral evaluation) or (neutral description)
because Arabs, in general, exaggerate when they love and when they hate and they don’t know any moderation.
#Imam_Ali for he was the first Arab man to diagnose this dangerous disease of Arab nation by saying: Love your beloved one wisely as he might be your enemy one day.. and hate your enemy wisely as he might be your friend one day.

What a wonderful wisdom quote.

The #SDF's proclamation of victory today against #ISIS's territorial Caliphate is a momentous occasion worthy of genuine celebration.

What was once a territory the size of the UK is now zero. That's no small accomplishment.

The #SDF lost 11,000 killed & 21,000 wounded.
#pt: After #ISIS's capture of #Mosul, its march south in #Iraq, expansion in #Syria & genocidal threats against #Yazidis in #Sinjar & #Kurds in #Kobani, the US mobilized the largest military coalition in modern history; 79 members.

Due in large part of @brett_mcgurk's hard work.
@brett_mcgurk #pt: As the #SDF has made clear, however, the counter-#ISIS mission must now shift to a new mission - the struggle is far from over.

The now-completed "clear" phase was the easy bit; the "hold" & "build" represents the huge challenge ahead, but our commitment is now in question.

🚨>> U.S. CANCELS Award to Star Journalist Fighting Russian Disinformation…Because She Criticized Trump – @ForeignPolicy @JessikkaAro foreignpolicy.com/2019/03/07/u-s…
@ForeignPolicy @JessikkaAro #FF @JessikkaAro. Her important work on #Russia #Propaganda #Extremism #InformationWarfare made her a target for brutal Kremlin trolls' disinformation campaign. She won "Women of Courage" Award—which State Dept rescinded bc she criticized Trump on twitter‼️indiegogo.com/projects/vladi…
@ForeignPolicy @JessikkaAro Every day Trump is POTUS is a day our most fundamental freedoms erode. 'POTUS Trump' is an oxymoron b/c autocrats are incompatible w/ democracy! In myriad ways—from overt sycophancy to chill of self-censorship—Americans bend to authoritarianism. Latest entry in US #HallofShame ⬇️

1/ Who am I?

I'm a #CVE researcher who studies the process of radicalization, social groups, and movements. In short, I look for ways to prevent people like the #CovingtonBoys from swiping even further right & endorsing white nationalism, ethnic separatism, or dom. terrorism.
2/ On Twitter, I identify as a “#ProudBoys Whisperer,” a tongue in cheek reference to the ethnographic fieldwork I do. This work involves many conversations like the one below.

3/ I also look for ways to help men and women innoculate themselves from falling down the #antifeminist/anti-#SJW /conspiratorial rabbit hole.
