Beer Sheva mother's called national hero. She woke to sirens in middle of night, ran upstairs to grab 3 sleeping kids from 3 bedrooms, ran downstairs & got all into bomb shelter & shut blastdoor just as rocket hit.
Commentators: had there been casualties, #Israel would be at war.
Her house was totaled. The woman, Miri Tamano, raising her 3 kids, is a divorcee who was laid off 6 months ago. With a BA and writing skills.
BTW, she's a Ethiopian Jew.
Here is picture of Miri Tamano who was interviewed on Israeli TV. She detailed her rescue of her 3 boys, the terror of the rocket hitting her house, telling her boys to hold their crying to to say from Psalms "Give thanks to God for He is good, for His goodness endured forever"

The invented #Palestinian nation and their inflated refugee numbers. A short thread. 1) In 1882, official Ottoman Turk census figures showed that, in the entire Land of what is now #Israel, there were only 141 000 Muslims, both Arab and non-Arab.
2) A well regarded travel guide to #Palestine and Syria was published in 1906 by Karl Baedeker; The book estimated the total population of Jerusalem at 60,000, of whom 7,000 were Muslims, 13,000 were Christians and 40,000 were Jews.
3) from around 1881 Jews came home to Israel renamed Palestine to reclaim their historical homeland. As the Jews came and drained the swamps and made the deserts bloom, Arabs followed. They came for jobs, for prosperity, for freedom. And, they came in large numbers.

A reminder on #NationalComingOutDay that only one country in the entirety of the Middle East supports, defends and celebrates freedom of choice:

As a contrast to their equal rights in #Israel, here is how #gay men are treated in #Iran.

Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️

Nader is COOPERATING.😎 2/

George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/

A-Z of #LabourAntisemitism to be used when @jeremycorbyn supporters & @UKLabour members try to tell you there is no antisemitism in their party!

Many of these abhorrent racists have been let off by Labour, are free to peddle their revolting views about Jews to the public.
1: Alan Bull, who was selected by @uklabour as a candidate, in the full knowledge he is a Holocaust denier. He was supported by @PeoplesMomentum Director Shawcroft.
2: Afzal Khan, then an @uklabour MEP and now the MP for Manchester Gorton, compared "Israel to Nazis". No disciplinary action was taken. telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/1…

The Reichstag Warning ⚠️⚠️⚠️

By @TimothyDSnyder
THREAD ✔
On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began.
1/
#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. “There will be no mercy now,” he exulted. “Anyone standing in our way will be cut down.”
2/
The next day, at Hitler’s advice and urging, the #German #president issued a decree “for the protection of the people and the state.”

The hit song among Palestinian units at the #Gaza border right now. Song is in most of the infiltration and incendiary/explosive balloon videos.

“Today we are coming back to our land and we start by cutting this barbed wire to pass.”

#Israel
2/3

“G-D willing, we will go crawling, we will cut the barbed wire and return with victory. This land belongs to us and our ancestors. We will get our land back. It is the source of our dignity and our pride.. G-D willing, we will get inside and trap them.”
3/3 The entire video, it’s 9 minutes long.

My position has never been anti-Labour. I am a proud Brit, who waves the flag and whose hard working parents and grandparents came from places such as Woolwich and Newcastle. For most of my life I’ve battled antisemitism found in politically disenfranchised ideologies.
My personal experience left me in no doubt of the moral imperative behind #Zionism. Like most Jewish families, more branches are missing from the family tree than those that remain. Not just from the #Holocaust but from the relentless persecution that preceded it.
Zionism was an outstanding success because it was so tragically right. The Jews don’t just have a right to self-determination but a desperate need for it. #Israel is the home of a globally persecuted people. Here too they are hounded, but in #israel they can defend themselves.

#Moscow: S-300 to #Syria in 2 weeks. #Israel will be limited to bombing #Syria from afar, coordinate any flight above #Lebanon and #Syria with #Russia hours before and #Damascus won't hesitate to bring down an #Israeli jet over #Lebanon and Syria.

This is a major blow to #Israel and #USA.

#Syria can also, potentially, bring down any hostile force in the air occupying #Syrian territory.

#Riussia, by delivering the S-300 to #Syria, needs to deliver protection system around it.

#Russia is hitting 2 birds (Israel & US) in 1 stone (S-300 to #Syria).

I don't think this is the only price #Israel will pay for the 15 Russian servicemen killed. More to come.

Adding: #Iran Bavar to #Syria

Israel omnipotence is coming to an end.

Listen 👂 please:
#Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace.
#Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower
@PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015

#Israel has nothing to offer to #Russia and #Moscow has nothing to ask from #TelAviv. Airspace is closed, period.

So Israel will go and cry on Uncle Sam's shoulder: the magnificent @realDonaldTrump #USA

It is up to @PutinRF_Eng to rebuff #USA and #Israel and hold his ground firmly. I am aware of US lobby within #Russia but it is time to show the world that hegemony is over

#Moscow can ask for itself, for #Syria & substantial compensation for Russian families.

The discussions and the maps offered by #Israel delegation to #Russia about the downing of the IL-20 was considered unacceptable & offensive by #Moscow. Moreover, the Israeli delegation complained about" #Iran's influence in #Syri, an argument the Russian have rejected.
#Russia also rejected the #Israeli claim that President Putin refused to talk to the Syrian president Assad. Israel propaganda aim to cover the deterioration of the relationship between #Moscow and #TelAviv
Remember what I said: The downing of the Russian IL-20 is all in #Israel disadvantage.

Now Israel is confused and no longer confident in what it is doing in #Syria and how to run its relationship with #Russia and #Turkey (following the Idlib deal).

Absolutely extraordinary.

#Syria’s air defense systems have no way to determine “friend” from “foe.” #Russia doesn’t export that tech.

Within a complex & unpredictable environment, that raises the risk to civilian aircraft
significantly.
#Israel says #Syria’s air defense fired “dozens” of anti-aircraft missiles from several batteries across the country over the space of 40-mins… *after* #IAF planes had returned to #Israel.

One took down #Russia’s IL-20.

timesofisrael.com/syria-fired-mi…
To me, this looks like messaging more than a truly dramatic change in reality/dynamics:

- S-300s already deployed in #Syria.

- #Israel (& US) uses encrypted radar/GPS; less vulnerable to counter-measures

- #Russia has been “jamming” for 2+ yrs.

- #Israel fires most from Med.

Look at the photo: No burning on the white container south of the destroyed factory indicating this is not a warehouse and no ammunition in it.
No whole on the ground and only 4 traces of missiles in the destroyed factory.
Also, look at the building north of the 155m factory destoryed. This indicates that #Israel didn't want to kill workers living in the building (still standing) and targeted the place at night when the factory was closed.
The white container souyth of the destoryed factory indicates that the last of the 4 missiles hit the target at least 70m away from the still standing white container.

This is a spare part gathering factory with no explosives or ammunitions in it.

Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

BREAKING - Likely #Israel airstrikes just hit a scientific research center - reportedly linked to the SSRC - in #Latakia.

#Assad regime air defenses were allegedly activated in multiple provinces: #Latakia, #Tartus, #Homs & #Hama.
Mabrouk #Assad - your invincible air defenses shot down an aircraft!

... a #Russia IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down over #Syria tonight - amid #Israel airstrikes in #Latakia.

#OwnGoal

Tonight’s developments vis-a-vis #Israel & Russia are a pretty big deal.

It would seem #Israel may have acted without giving #Moscow prior warning = big challenge to their prior arrangement.

Or, #Russia did know, but got attacked by their errant ally in #Damascus = humiliating.

This attack was unprecedented & highly significant. Never ever #Israel went as far.

The message Israel is sending is strategic & a game changer.

Will #Iran accept, abide by it, or respond?

Syria: Israel launched a missile attack on #Damascus airport abcn.ws/2NJc0ae
I strongly believe #Israel, via #US media, will release indirect information and details about it in the coming days. We see.

#Israel attacked one specific target on the runway, sending a message to Iran to refrain from delivering #Syria what #Russia didn't.

Was told that "attack won't change Iran's intention to provide #Damascus with the equivalent of the S-300, as promised."

I was present & was the 1st journalist who entered the camp. I saw the massacre of Palestinians & Lebanese. Will be in my book in details.

36 years ago, #Israel protected its proxy, Falangists "Lebanese Forces", to commit the massacre of Sabra and Chatila.

Goodnight world...
In the memory of the 16th of September 1982, I share with you a small part of my forthcoming book about #Palestinian camps #SabraAndShatila and the massacre #Beirut #Lebanon.

Many descriptive parts are missing. It was a sad and shocking day that details never left my menory.

Iranian militias in #Syria
By the beginning of 2012, with the increasing peaceful demonstrations the #IRGC began to feel the danger to the regime of its ally Assad and the major schisms within the #Assad army. Opposition sources estimate the number of dissidents at 150,000.1/12
Because of Assad's field losses, Tehran gave orders to #Hezbollah terrorist militia to conduct military intervention to save #Assad. It was the first direct military presence of the militia in southern #Damascus and the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.2/12
#Iran #USA
Over time, the #IRGC has established a number of trained, financially and militarily supported militias from #Tehran that are spread over a number of Syrian provinces from #Aleppo to #Daraa.3/12
