Since Russian funded terrorists from #Hezbollah are killing Jews in #Israel today and both Russia and #Palestine cheer, it’s time to revisit this special antisemitic brotherhood. 🧵

So I supported Palestine on human rights argument. Among my friends much support also for 🇵🇸
1. Because we believed that this generation should not be guilty for crimes of its people in past. And what of these crimes? #Palestine and it’s supporters will tell you that all of this violence is because Israel stole land almost 80 years ago. Land that has been in dispute
2. Among three religions for eons by way. But what they leave out is that Palestinian territory was home of both Jews and Muslims during WWII. It is these Muslims who sided with Nazi Germany to eradicate, genocide Palestinian Jews. ImageImage

The breathless news coverage on Harry and Meghan has made #IranianProtesters look like extras in a B movie.

But while the semi-Royal couple has ‘spared’ us no details, Iranians’ abductions, torture and hangings by the #IR go largely unreported.

2/ the US plays lip-service to wanting democracy in the #MiddleEast, but what it demands is FIELTY to the US Empire. Egyptian people bravely and at great cost overthrew a bloody dictator and established the Arab World’s biggest democracy. The new govt wasn’t pro-US and in 2013…

Khomeini’s face is in the moon!
Earlier, rumors had spread in Iran that the devout believer would see the face of Ayatollah #Khomeini during the next full moon. (1/11)
@HistorianofIran #IranianRevolution
2/11 At the day of 27 November, millions of people received the moon with cheers, actually recognized the image of Ayatollah Khomeini and shouted allahu akbar from the rooftops of their houses – which became the established sign of political disobedience.
3/11 Tara Bahrampour remembers: “Khomeini’s face is in the moon. Everyone’s talking about it. Taxicabs brake in the middle of traffic so people can jump out and look up at the sky, and neighbors gather in the alleys at sunset to point at the outlines of his eyes. [...] ...
