#JerusalemDay. Thread. 1/
I danced at the Western Wall on Jerusalem Day w/ fellow students from KBYeshiva in 1969 -- 53 y.a.
It's been a long tradition, but Jews were denied access before 1967.

Pride & Determination.
#JerusalemDay. Thread. 2/
I found this #Jerusalem "parade" from ~1915 when Jer'm was ruled by the Turks.
Jews were forcibly conscripted & marched into the Turkish Army. The army looted food & supplies from the Jews. (Ottoman Archives)

Jewish humiliation.
#JerusalemDay. Thread. 3/
With younger Jewish men drafted or in hiding, the Turks took out their rage against old Jewish men. The German officer who took these picture ~1915 captioned them "Jewish merchants" probably based on the anti-Semitic image of Shylock.
Jewish humiliation.

Ich hatte gerade eine Diskussion mit einem Angestellten von @amnesty_de an einem Stand am Bahnhof Berlin-Südkreuz über den Vorwurf, dass #Israel angeblich ein „Apartheidsstaat“ ist. Ich erzähle kurz wie das Gespräch verlaufen ist: (Thread | Unbedingt durchlesen)
Zuerst habe ich ihn gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „#Apartheid“ bezogen auf Israel Sinn ergibt, wenn man bedenkt, dass Araber nicht nur hohe Positionen in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens haben, sondern dazu auch noch per Gesetz gleichberechtigt sind: Keine Antwort.
Dann habe ich gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „Apartheid“ Sinn ergibt, wenn man auf tatsächliche Apartheidsstaaten (früheres Südafrika bsp.) schaut, in welchen es eine klare Rassentrennung in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens gab. Seine Antwort: „Ich sehe Parallelen.“

#Suez Canal, #Egypt - 11 Egyptian soldiers dead following an #ISIS #terrorist_attack in #Sinai

When #Hamas Palestinian Leader in #Gaza Yehya Al-Sinwar said that "the Axis of Resistance will break the naval blockade imposed on Gaza", he is announcing that, first the first time in decades, the Palestinians will have a free exit to the sea. That means a new war with #Israel.
#Israel can't keep #Gaza under blockage forever, particularly when the Palestinians have also weapons to retaliate against Israel and want to become free from Israeli control.

This is the beginning of another war to defeat the #US & its allies and break their dominance.
It is starting in #Ukraine between the #US and #Russia. The next step is in #Palestine between the Palestinians and #Israel. The process will be painful and long but it has started and can no longer be stopped.

Expect a harsh reaction but nothing can stop this path anylonger.

2de vrijdag van Ramadan.
Na het gebed vannacht (4u) begonnen jongeren stenen en vuurwerk gooien in en vanuit de Tempelberg. Zie hier de voorbereidingen.
Zie hier de voorbereidingen.
Politie, tot nu toe terughoudend, moest optreden.
Zo zagen de 'voorbereidingen' voor de ordeverstoring in de Tempelberg eruit.
En zo werden de jongeren 'aangemoedigd' (opgehitst). #Tempelberg vanochtend.
" Met bloed en geest gaan we #Palestina bevrijden". #Hamas-vlaggen zichtbaar in beeld.

Questions about the #Negev_Summit:
1. As a supporter of #AbrahamAccords, I would have loved nothing better for the Negev Summit to have been a meaningful opportunity for a constructive & frank exchange of ideas building on the foundation between participants.
2. Alas, once again, it appears to be nothing more than another hastily organized photo op. I don't see clear follow-ups that would indicate a substantive basis of support to the points raised to the summit.
3. #Morocco's FM Bourita, for instance, once again went around claiming credit for #Israel's allegedly growing support on the Kingdom's sovereignty over Sahara. But where's #Israel's consulate in #Dakhla? And why is Govrin still a liaison and not a full Ambassador to #Morocco?

#Iran becomes the only foreign government so far to come out to openly endorse Prime Minister #ImranKhan's claim about a #US conspiracy to topple him. Tehran's state-run channel suggests that #Pakistan's opposition parties are executing American agenda:
Three weeks ago, #Nasrallah the chief of #Iran's main militant group #Hezbollah, globally designated as a terrorist organization, praised PM #ImranKhan in a TV speech. Pakistani @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL broadcast clips from militant chief's speech.

#Iran's state media is encouraging PM #ImranKhan to take on the West [], which serves no Pakistani interest, while #Tehran is busy negotiating a deal with Western powers that includes economic cooperation.

🧵On #Turkey-#Israel and talk of a #gas pipeline

After a tour in #Greece and #Cyprus, that aimed at appeasing their concerns, Israeli president was today visiting Turkey in the context of improving bilateral relations. Its the first visit by an Israeli president since 2008. >
Though allies since 1996, relations started to deteriorate as early as 2004 & took a huge blow in 2010 w the #MaviMarmara incident. Not going to get into that or the steps that followed towards normalization.

🇹🇷🇮🇱 | Le président israélien #Herzog arrive en #Turquie pour une visite officielle. C’est la première visite de ce type depuis 2008.

#Erdogan avait déclaré en début d’année qu’une « nouvelle ère pourrait commencer dans les relations israélo-turques » lors de cette visite.
🇹🇷🇮🇱 | #Erdogan accueille #Herzog à Ankara.

Les deux présidents ont échangé sur le domaine de l’énergie, de la défense, ainsi que sur les relations commerciale.
🇵🇸 #Hamas :
"Le Mouvement suit avec une grande inquiétude les visites des responsables et des dirigeants de l'entité sioniste dans un certain nombre de pays arabes et islamiques, dont la plus récente est la visite d'"Isaac Herzog" dans un certain nombre de pays."

1/ #Hamas prevents Gazan from donating bone marrow to his sister!

Several weeks ago, a #Gaza man was meant to enter Israel to donate bone marrow to his sister, a leukemia patient treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, Jerusalem, but Hamas prevented him from entering Israel.
2/ So the doctors agreed to come to the #Gaza border and do the procedure there, even preparing a suitable facility. #Hamas refuses to allow the man to donate the bone marrow on the border. #TheGazaYouDontSee m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid…

1. Israel should not cooperate with the UN special commission investigating the May 2021 fighting between #Israel & #Hamas in Gaza. A thread ⬇️
2. The @UN has a long and shameful record of anti-Israel bias. Israel should not subject itself to a kangaroo court that is probing alleged violations of international human rights law with the goal of collecting evidence that could lead to legal action.
3. Israel’s ambassador @MeiravEShahar in @IsraelinGeneva wrote, “There is simply no reason to believe that Israel will receive reasonable, equitable and non-discriminatory treatment from the Council, or from this Commission of Inquiry.”

Thread:
1. In recent weeks, #Saudi opposition, linked to extremists & to #Qatar, including Lina Al-Hathloul have been trying to once again draw attention to Loujain Al Hathloul in an effort to renew the view of her as a victim a year after her release.
reuters.com/technology/how…
2. As a reminder Loujain Al Hathloul once campaigned for women's rights to drive but once #MBS came to power and this form of lobbying & activism became irrelevant, switched to propaganda against #KSA on foreign channels in exchange for funding & fame.
3. Al Hathloul, after repeated warnings, was eventually tried & convicted for violations of relevant laws similar to the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (#FARA), which also carries criminal penalties depending on the extent of violations.

#Israeli forces have reportedly entered Silat al-Harithiya, near Jenin, where the homes of the terrorists who killed Yehuda Dimentman are located. It could be that the @IDF will demolish the terrorists' homes tonight.
Clashes have reportedly broken out in Sila al-Harithiya. Shocking.
8 #Palestinian injuries reported so far amid armed clashes between @IDF and Palestinians in Sila al-Harithiya. At least one of the injured is in critical condition. Clashes ongoing.

If #NATO is the cornerstone of the #West's "foreign" policy? How about its members and informal allies? Do they behave as true allies? Are Western interests and values being protected?

👉 It is hard anymore to distinguish allies from foes!

A thread - 1/10

| @vtchakarova #EU
#Sweden fears an attack by #Russia, and so does #Ukraine. #Taiwan fears an attack by #China. #Armenia fears an attack by both #Azerbaijan and #Turkey. The latter threatens its #NATO ally #Greece but also the #EU-member #Cyprus part of which is under its illegal control. 2/10
#Russia again via #Belarus reminds #Europe (as #Turkey does day in day out) that energy is not the only mean in its arsenal to destablize it - mass inflow of illegal immigrants is as effective - so #Poland like #Greece is fortifying its borders. 3/10

2/ No surprise to followers of #TheGazaYouDontSee. We have often seen fully stacked pharmacies, while we are told that no medicines are getting into #Gaza, shelves are empty and the situation is dire. #Palestine #Hamas

Thread: How FM Bourita's policies betrayed Moroccan Sahara security?
1. In my previous thread, I explained how Jamal Benomar, notorious for his pro-#Houthi positions & an agent of #Qatar, benefited from FM Bourita's willingness to give him diplomatic cover & evaded US justice.
2. In public discourse, FM Bourita positions himself as a tough critic of #Iran, with which #MOrocco cut relations in 2018, several months before Benomar was hired by Morocco's mission to the UN, due to #Iran's funding, arming & training of the #Polisario terrorists.
3. Specifically #Iran used an #IRGC operative who had a diplomatic cover with the Algiers embassy to facilitate #Iran proxy #Hezbullah's transfer of weapons and contacts with #Polisario, including training & tunnel building joint ops.

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.
