1/21 From the very beginning #Israel planned to usurp #Palestine
#OsloPeace didn't manage to dismantle a single Settlement,to the contrary, #Israel started taking more #Palestinian Land
During the 7 yrs following #Oslo,the Settler Population within the #WestBank increased by 90%
2/21 Following Intl pressure to stop Settlements #Israel began new tactics,under the pretext of natural growth,they expanded & fattened,the existing settlements & connected them to each other & to Israel
Slicing the land blocking any possibility of a contiguous #Palestinian State
3/21 #Israeli Settlements along with their Road Network & Security Zones, occupy about 42% of Palestinian Land.
Roads btw Settlements can only be traveled by Settlers,the basic Human Right of Freedom of Movement within ones Home Country has been taken away from the #Palestinians

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔

Yesterday @POTUS said that #Immigrants trying to enter the US are #animals, not people.

Let's look at who he's talking about.

#Trump will separate children from parents to discourage #Immigrants, even those legally requesting amnesty. goo.gl/1qLtoL 1/6 #sanctuary
Not people? So it's okay to separate children from their parents indefinitely?

Does that @CBP officer look proud of his job? 2/6 #dehumanization #RacismInAmerica #SanctuaryCities #sanctuary
This mother and son look like #people to me.

For some reason the @CBP officers don't seem to want to be in the picture. 3/6 #prisonreform

The title & first paragraph of this article indicates the main concern of this writer: #RegimeChange.
Q: Why would someone be worried about regime change in #Iran, unless they have interests in such a regime remaining in power. Interesting
aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…
(1/21)
Thread
The term “anti-Iran” is interesting. Has #Iran’s regime left anything to be supportive of? Butchering innocent people across the #MiddleEast, gross #HumanRights violations back home, wasting billions on an unnecessary nuclear program, ballistic missiles & terrorism.
(2/21)
And talking about #NorthKorea being “disinclined” shows how #Iran is terrified of losing Pyongyang in its trek to obtain nuclear weapons & the ballistic missiles. Now Tehran is all alone. But why is this writer so worried about it? Again, a matter of common interest?

The rise of populism is in part a response to stagnating incomes & job loss, owing mostly to New #Technologies & widely attributed to #imports & #immigrants

Basically Big Businesses Greed
Their Idealolgy was Killing our Countries.

But the weakening of #Liberal #NewWorldOrder is due, more than anything else, to the changed attitude of #USA Under @POTUS @realDonaldTrump

THREAD: I am putting Advocate Seema Sapra's arguments on the #AadhaarHearings here because it I find it extremely cohesive and think it very important for everyone to read and discuss. The link to her post is above. 1/n
2/n #AadhaarHearing is "framed too narrowly around privacy and there are other more serious concerns about Aadhaar &facts about the Aadhaar biometric identification system that have not been placed before the Supreme Court or are being sidelined by the focus on the privacy right
3/n The focus on privacy in the #AadhaarHearings sidelines the issue "that Aadhaar in its very design and implementation more fundamentally violates the right to identity, to person-hood, to citizenship and consequently the right to life itself."
