Sayed Mousa Alsadr said“One of the most important objectives behind the plots that struck Lebanon was to destroy the form of coexistence and national unity in Lebanon. When coexistence is targeted by a plot, the symbols of coexistence will definitely be the first to be attacked."
On February 19, 1975, fathers of the Saint Louis Capuchin Cathedral in Beirut was the first time in the history of #Islam and Christianity that a Muslim cleric was carrying out a #Christian religious rite and that was Musa as-Sadr!
In his speech during the civil war he said:
“We have gathered for the human being for whom religions came; the religious which were of the same origin, and each promised the emergence of the other, and acknowledged each other.
Every bullet that is shot at a Christian town is as if it is shot at my home, heart, & children."

#Hezbollah announced a huge plan to combat #CoronavirusPandemic in #Lebanon. The plan is as follows:

More than 24,500 people (doctors, nurses and aid workers) who work in the health sector contribute to this plan.
According to the head of Hezbollah's executive coucil Sayed Hachem Safieddine:
"The plan is compatible with the plan prepared by the Lebanese Health Ministry to combat coronavirus and doesn’t contradict with it. All our measures correspond with that of the ministry.”
A number of hospitals have been rented by Hezbollah and have been prepared to be used when necessary.
The Resistance movement has also prepared 32 medical centers across the Lebanese territories as part of the efforts to combat #CoronavirusPandemic.

#US challenged #Hezbollah in #Lebanon, sent a plane to its embassy & smuggle the pro-Israeli agent/dual national Amer Fakhoury. He was forbidden from travelling but highest Leb authorty ordered his released. He is on his way to #US. Trump thanked the Leb gov for its collbrtion.
This important event indicates: #Hezbollah doesn't control the justice system that released pro-Israeli Amer Fakhoury; doesn't control the govrnmnt that President Trump thanked; doesn't control powerful politicians who ordered the release and can't stop US from violating Leb law.
My information is the following:
#US used its best hobby ever, threatening the highest authority in #Lebanon to impose sanctions ending its political carrier & the 1 of its relative; confiscate assets abroad & strangle #Lebanon in its financial difficulties & #coronavirus crisis

#Hezbollah leader Hassan #Nasrallah, in speech being broadcast now, characterizes #Coronavirus as an "enemy" and that the fight against it - to prevent its spread & find a treatment for it - is a "battle."
#Nasrallah: anyone showing signs of Coronavirus has to show transparency about it, and go to hospital and the competent authorities & see if they have the virus or not.
He says this is a religious duty and to protect yourselves and others.
#Nasrallah addresses #Lebanon's Health Ministry and says you must keep going, and even if the number of deaths grows very high you must be transparent and announce them. "It's the people's right to know," he says.

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

Another spy in the DoD.

Defense Dept Linguist p Mariam Taha Thompson was charged with espionage for transmitting highly sensitive classified national defense info, including names of assets, to a foreigner linked to #Hezbollah.
Thompson, who had top secret security clearance, allegedly provided the names of US assets to an overseas Lebanese National while she was in a war zone.
Looks like it happened a day after US air strikes in Iraq against #Iran-backed forces after they attacked our embassy.

That’s when she started accessing all sorts of files about human intelligence sources.

حکومت جمهوری اسلامی #ایران درحالی به وضع مقررات لازم در رفت وآمد وجلوگیری از شیوع ویروس کرونا توجهی ندارد که حتی ارتش ملی #سوریه در این کشور جنگ زده به این اصول و تست گرفتن از اهالی در رفت آمد از مناطق رژیم و پ‌ک‌ک به مناطق آزاد شده شمال سوریه توجه میکند.
While Iranian regime doesn’t care to restrict movements to stop spreading Coronavirus, even SNA in war torn #Syria is doing its job.

A businessman who once was export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE was falsely represented as a Strategic Studies Analyst by #ManotoTV, an #Iranian opposition TV! Few days ago, he was also interviewed by #BBCPersian! He has not written an article in his life! Who is he?!🤔
How on earth someone attends in a meeting against #Iran's Islamic Regime with #FakhrAvar & Saghar Kasraee in 2012! And just three years later, he is being appointed as export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE?! It is strange! May be this guy is a double agent?!
Real political & strategic studies analysts such as Mahnaz Shirali, Scientology University Professor might boycott #ManotoTV over inviting people like #FarbodTalaee who pretends to be an analyst (in fact is a businessman who cooperated with #IRGC).

#Hezbollah issued the following statement in response to the #DealOfTheCentury

Hezbollah expresses its condemnation and firm rejection of the #DealOfShame launched by the savage #Trump administration at the expense of the Palestinian people, their land, sanctities,
and legitimate natural rights, and considers it a very dangerous step that will have very bad repercussions on the future of the region and its peoples.

#Hezbollah considers that the American satanic administration, after decades of supporting the enemy, its occupation,
its aggressions and massacres against the Arab people, crowned its aggression today, by trying to eliminate the historical and legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

#1 Há cinco anos, a #Argentina entrava em transe com a notícia da morte do procurador #AlbertoNisman, que chefiava as investigações do atentado contra a #AMIA (1994). Os investigadores cravaram se tratar de suicídio. Tese que nunca ficou de pé e até hoje alimenta polêmicas.
#2 Os elementos periciais são suficientes para refutar a tese do suicídio de #AlbertoNisman. Ele estava provavelmente subjugado, de joelho e com mão coberta (pela de outra pessoa?) A ausência de lesão mostra que seu corpo foi depositado no chão e manchas de sangue foram limpas.
#3 #AlbertoNisman morreu, na minha avalição, por acertadamente ajustar o foco das investigações. Olhar não só para o que o #Irã e #Hezbollah fizeram, mas para o que continuavam a fazer em conluio com o governo de @CFKArgentina. Aqui uma das escutas grifadas pelo próprio Nisman.

Time for a story. Pull up a chair, if you'd like.

In July 1979, I shipped to Marine Corps Boot Camp in San Diego. I graduated October 27, 1979.

On November 4, 1979, Iranian 'students' stormed the US Embassy in Iran and took 52 American citizens hostage.
They held them for 444 days, releasing them on the day Ronald Reagan took office, making Jimmy Carter's humiliation (including a failed rescue attempt) complete.

They released them, we believed, because Reagan had promised to make Tehran glow in the dark.
Most of us believed Reagan would nuke Iran in a hot minute. I guess Iran believed it too. True? I don't know. My viewpoint was and is probably too simplistic.

This was my introduction to global politics and it featured Iran. Keep this mind if you will. I was very young.

@VP is not spreading #Conspiracytheories
Yes #Iran helped with the 9/11 attacks.
The “9/11 Commission published their report on July 22, 2004.
The commission found that
Senior managers in al-Qaeda maintained contacts with Iran and the Iranian-supported terrorist organization
Also spelled Hizbullah
Al-Qaeda members received advice and training from Hizbullah.”
A large percentage of the 14 Saudi “muscle” operatives “traveled into or out of Iran between October 2000 and February 2001.
The 9/11 never did a full investigation into #Iran involvement, which is why the report said we have found no evidence Iran or Hezbollah was aware of the 9/11 attacks.

Then stated a further investigation would be necessary.
It was never done.…

Statement from #Iraq|i PM:

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday 8/1/2020, we received an official verbal message from the Islamic Republic of #Iran that the Iranian response to the assassination of the martyr Qassem Soleimani had begun or It will start in a little while
Rough translation of the full statement, this was done via google. So it'll be slightly off but it gives you context.
It appears #Finland knew the strikes were coming, therefore I have no doubt the #US were completely aware of the incoming missiles, hence 0 casualties.

#1 Dá trabalho, mas os arquivos on line ensinam muito sobre temas atuais. Enquanto esteve no governo, o mesmo @ptbrasil que soltou nota em protesto pela morte do general #Soleimani, era frontalmente contra a designação do #Hezbollah como organização terrorista.
#2 O #Hezbollah é um grupo terrorista sediado no #Líbano, que é um dos tentáculos armados e de terror que #Soleimani comandava. Em 2012, o secretário de relações exteriores da organização Ammar al-Mousawi, esteve em #Cuba para um evento do #ForoDeSaoPaulo.…
#3 O #ForoDeSaoPaulo, para quem não se lembra, é a agremiação de organizações de esquerda fundada por Fidel e @LulaOficial. Tem entre os membros organizações como as #FARC -- acreditem, a mais letal organização terrorista da história.

Images and Tweets by @TPostMillennial detail last night's vigil for “heroes of Islam” #Qasem_Soleimani. The event was organized by the @MahdiYouth Society (MY Society). Within the group was a #Hezbollah supporter, waving the terrorist organization's flag.
As per the Gov't of Canada website, both #Hizballah & #Soleimani's #QodsForce are🚩as terrorist organizations.

So you have @MahdiYouth organizing an event with protesters clearly supporting terrorist organizations and declared by the 🇨🇦 gov't.
So who is @MahdiYouth?

Based in #Pickering, MY Society was founded and is sponsored by Al-Mahdi Islamic Centre @almahdicentre.

Based on their Facebook videos (which include clear anti-Israel views), there doesn't seem to be much inclusion of girls.

Let’s have some straight talk on #Soleimani, shall we?
1. Suleimani took command of the Quds Force over 20 years ago and his job is to reshape the Middle East in Iran’s favor: thru military force, by assassinating rivals and arming allies.
2. His twenty year focus is directing
a network of militant groups that has killed hundreds of U.S in #Iraq and others.
3. I know of only ONE American who has ever met him, John Maguire, describing him as soft-spoken yet the most powerful man in the MidEast. Thoughtful, strategic, smart, charismatic - 100% dedicated
4. He personally runs #Iran’s war in #Syria and brought in thousands of #Quds Force when #Assad’s army began to fail.
5. Suleimani and #Nasrallah of #Hezbollah #Lebanon are old friends and cooperate globally where Hezbollah has performed terrorist acts at Iran’s behest.

So tonight is the time to keep the pledge with #Soleimani's grieving family. All uncles his children, from #Baqeri to #Nasrullah and their sidekicks like Shahenshah #Naqvi, will start avenging the killing of the mass-murderer. Last night's cyber-attacks were childish thu. #Syria
Certain #Khomeini|sts today supposed that a land invasion of #Iran was imminent. It was merely to play victime and cash on anti-#America|nism. The fact: #Iran's threatening a new war, not the other way round. Already, the regime's set alight Syria, Yemen and Lebanon besides Iraq
#Soleimani, who died in action (on duty), was the grand field commander of these conflicts. He's directly involved in killing 100s & 1000s #of Arabs besides #US, western, #Pakistan|i, #Afghan citizens. If #Iran avenges, it will bring the war home, its victims have long awaited.

#Hezbollah leader Nasrallah begins speech on the killings of #Qassem_Suleimani and #AbuMahdialMuhandis.

Says Jan 2nd 2020 (day of the assasination) is the beginning of a new phase in the entire region.
Nasrallah says Soleimani got what he sought on that night: Martyrdom.
#Nasrallah says both Soleimani and Abu Mahdi confided in him that they wanted to be martyred.

Abu Mahdi did so at a meeting in #Beirut’s southern suburbs 2 months ago when they “spoke for hours.”

Nasrallah congratulates then both.
