In 2015, #Isil took and started destroying #Palmyra in Syria. That was when the so-called world leaders and their same conservative cheerleaders woke up, cried wolf and commissioned more wars. Prior to that, Syrians was slaughtered but none of those people showed as much horror.
SAD that we show more care & protection to objects than we show other humans. An evidence of the absence of humanity. In the current debate, statues have once again proven to matter more than the lives of black people of UK. Shame on our country and its leaders. SHAME!
Today, the same conservative so-called patriotic sects are outraged at statues being destroyed than they have ever been about institutional racism. Because of course, statues matter more than black lives. And that buttresses the point of #blacklivesmatter

There is No difference between #Basij terrorists & #ISIL! #IRGC's Basiji militiamen attacked Jewish Tomb of Esther and Mordechai in #Hamedan yesterday & the Christian graveyard of #Eslamshahr today. There is No difference among #Iran's Islamic Regime (#Jaesh) & #Daesh! ImageImage
This is not for first time that terrorists of the Islamic Regime are destroying graveyards where none-Muslims or enemies of extremist Islam are buried in #Iran. It started with destruction of tomb of #RezaShah the Great, founder of modern #Iran by Ayatollah Khalkhali in 1979: ImageImage
#Basij militiamen who are equivalent of Sunni #ISIL are frequently attacking & destroying graves of Jews, Christians & none Muslims in #Iran. One of recent examples took place in #Isfahan. Basijis stormed #Armenian graveyard of the city & destroyed all gravestones on 19/12/2019. Image

#BREAKING: I just received confirmation that #US Army Special Forces are forced by #US Government to block the roads to #Manbij on #Syria Arab Army. Possibly that #Trump has already made a deal with #Erdogan! But things might change tonight!
It is also possible that #USArmy SOF has temporarily blocked the roads in-order to evacuate heavy equipment it had in its observation posts around #Manbij. Or perhaps they still try to convince #SDF to take-over remaining important #ISIL commanders imprisoned in #Manbij prison?!
#BREAKING: #VOA's journalist who is on the ground in NE #Syria is now witnessing that how #US has stopped #Syria Arab Army from preventing massacre of the Kurds in #Manbij by #Turkish Army & its terrorists. #US Special Forces have stopped #Syrian Army!
