1/ It is said that those who forget their history are condemned to repeat it. If this is true, then we should always remember the Russian atrocities against civilians. Today I’ll focus on one of the most shocking, the March 16, 2022 Russian airstrike against the Mariupol theatre. Image
2/ #Mariupol was one of the first cities attacked by the Russians at the start of their invasion. Since February 24th, Mariupol residents have been under fire. This caused some to leave, some to stay put at their homes and some to find shelter in designated buildings. Image
3/ One of such places designated as shelters for civilians was the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theatre. It was a multi-storied building at a relatively elevated part of the city. No other structures in close proximity. It made sense to shelter civilians there. Image

[Thread] about the organization of sinister reputation known as #PKK. Image
The #PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) as well as its sister organizations TAK (Kurdistan Freedom Falcons) and HPG improperly called "Kurdish" are terrorist organizations recognized as such by Turkey, the EU [archive.vn/20120722224908…], the USA [state.gov/foreign-terror…], __>

@Jo_Singh_ If GOI av nothing to hide they'd let #Amnesty, #HRW & other #HumanRights Orgs. to carry out their independent investigations. Khalra exposed mass illegal cremetion grounds across Panjab, files which are sealed to this day. 6K in one of 13 districts alone!
@Jo_Singh_ Here's an honest unbias paper that provides an objective analysis of the religious, political, social and economic factors, which led to the sad and extremely tragic events in the Punjab during 1980s. No political spin unlike what's being propagated by GOI minions, but 360 view!

Thread about Taliban war crimes 1990s.

Several massacres are documented by Human Rights Watch & other independent observers in which Taliban terrorists carried out targeted attacks against Hazaras, Uzbeks and Tajiks.

#DoNotRecogniseTaliban
@hrw, July, 1999: Taliban bombed the town of Dara-i Suf, a predominantly Hazara enclave in Samangan, with incendiary cluster munitions; ground forces burned down the entire central market and destroyed wells and homes. Later 500 Hazaras were killed by Taliban. #TalibanWarCrimes
According to @hrw in May 2000 Taliban forces summarily executed at least thirty-one Ismaili Hazara civilians near #RobatakPass, northwest of Pul-i Khumri in Baghlan province.

Some ppl welcomed @hrw's latest report on #GazaIsrael fighting of May, saying it was appropriately tough on #Israel. I just gave it a close read & I'm not so sure (thread) > hrw.org/news/2021/07/2…
> One thing that leapt out at me was @hrw's reflexive both-sides-ism, e.g. in 2nd paragraph. Note too that the link they give there goes to a report on website of Israel's foreign ministry! Objective source?? I don't think so... >
> This claim that all rockets, mortars that the Palestinian resistance forces fired twd Israel were sent "toward Israeli population centers" is quite unsubstantiated. It's key 2 remember that all journalists filing from or through #Israel r subject to strict military censorship >

#HRW's predictably anti-Israel report on #Gaza quotes the UN that Israel killed "260 Palestinians, including at least 129 civilians."
Uh, Who were the other 131?

HRW doesn't say it: they were combatants & commanders - legit military targets.
Some of those civilians...
1/
#HRW continued...2/
Tragically, some civilians were #Hamas' human shields.
As I pored over lists of Gaza dead compiled in #Israel, I found a case that would repeat itself: a senior Hamas commander, his wife, & 15 y.o. daughter.
Legit in laws of war, but listed as 2 civilians.
#HRW 3/
It came as no surprise that .@evanhill, producer of the @nytimes hatchet job on #israel for the buildings that collapsed on Wehda St, is a former HRW employee. Wehda St is a major HRW report topic.
It becomes clear #NYT & HRW shared research, fixers, & cinematographer.

Vorige week nog onderhandelde voor het eerst Arabische partij mee voor vorming nieuwe regering #Israel, nu wordt land verscheurd door geweld tussen beide bevolkingsgroepen. Hoe kon dit gebeuren? Een paar korte observaties vanaf de zijlijn. 1/10
Belangrijk om goed onderscheid tussen aanleidingen en oorzaken te maken. Aanleidingen zijn dreigende uitzettingen #SheikhJarrah, ingrijpen Israelische politie in Ramadan-regelingen Oude Stad Jeruzalem en mars van extreem-nationalistische Lahava door Oost-Jeruzalem. 2/10
Oorzaken liggen op dieper niveau. Palestijnse frustratie de afgelopen vier jaar op wereldtafereel niet gehoord te zijn, nu met regering-Biden kans op hernieuwde aandacht. Ook poging Palestijnse zaak hoger op agenda Arabische landen te krijgen. 3/10

The eyes of #HRW, are like what John Locke calls 'understanding', which, 'like the Eye, whilst it makes us see, and perceive all other Things, takes no notice of it self: And it requires Art and Pain to set it at a distance, and make it its own Object' (rather unlikely ATM).

Civilians in the #Sahel are increasingly threatened not only by radical armed actors and ethnic self-defence groups but similarly by national armed forces in the name of #counterterrorism. Thread on a few recent publications on #Mali #Niger #Burkina:
1/ This piece underlines recent summary executions and enforced disappearances by Sahelian National security forces in the name of counterterrorism. liberation.fr/planete/2020/0…
2/ As allies of #Barkhane – and trained by #EUTM #EUCAP, Sahelian national security forces thereby contribute to a dynamic that fuels recruitment of radical actors.

#AquaFonsVitae, first take:

Remarkably situates itself in the radical present, aka #COVID19, para 6. Reminder: this is a text on #water.
Explainer for newbies: Vatican emphasis on “connectedness” and “integral human development” are key Catholic Social Teaching (CST) terms, used in reference to #water since approx 2002 (see my book) and #ecology (see #LaudatoSi, 2015).
… as is this doc’s subsequent emphasis on universal destination of created goods (see #JustWater ch. 4), right to safe environment, and access to potable water. All of this is intro paras and is classic CST on water, though here more condensed than ever before! Fun.
