Here’s a serious warning from Col. Başıbüyük @obasibuyuk90: Expect Major #ISIS Attacks in Europe #EU following #Turkey #Syria Op & Ceasefire. I consider the Colonel a solid source with implacable record & expertise. Think: Who wants to score geopolitical points with #ISIS Attacks
Let me give you a hint here (not that majority of my followers need any hints😉): Which globalist Factions have been so very alarmed & unhappy with #USA & #Russia cooperating on #MiddleEast issues? And remember: #MSM has been on this faction’s side. Okay?!
Here’s a bonus hint: That faction has been the loudest in opposing #Trump #Syria deal, and been warning (fear-mongering) on the peace efforts by #Russia-#Trump-#Assad by playing “This will revive #ISIS” card. Just saying!

1. For what it's worth, recognizing that Turkey is the greatest risk in the #Levant because #Turkey is an #ISIS & al-#Qaeda affiliate, a while ago, I proposed a mechanism that was quite similar to what the SDF and Assad regime agreed to. Assad is brutal. So are KSA, UAE, Egypt,
2. Israel and IRAN. But the Syrian people have a way to establish Democracy through the @UN #GenevaProcess. That becomes more likely with unity of #SDF and #SAA. The #jihadists are the enemy of humanity. #Erdogan is their leader. Turkey must pay the price for following the
3. false prophet. The #Ottoman Empire must be finally and forever destroyed. Wall the jihadists up in Anatolia and let them devour each other. Free #Istanbul and #Bakur from the #AKP terrorists. Change the map. @trpresidency @RTErdogan @USEmbassyTurkey

I decided to rewrite the thread on the Seal of Muḥammad to focus on the seal itself, and not the seal as part of the black shahāda flag, on which I have a proper thread. First of all, let's start with the actual design of the #seal on the #prophet's signet ring.
The most common and popular reading of the engraving today is "Allāh Rasūl Muḥammad", an #Arabic linguistic construction which places the subject after the object similar to the famous verse in the Qur'anic Fāṭir: 28: "Innamā yakhshā Allāha min ʿibādihi al-ʿulamāʾu."
Supporters of this theory argue that one should always position #God's divine name(s) in a superior position when writing a text, as did the prophet do when writing his letters. They state that only the top position befits the Divine Being, therefore starting with Allāh.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo

1. Tense time in #Rojava with speculation #Turkey may invade and engage US & partnered Syrian forces on Monday's anniversary of 2016 coup that permitted Turkey's dictator Erdogan to purge the Turkish armed forces pro-@NATO officer corps.
2. Turkey has received the Russian S-400 SAM system triggering US sanctions that are reported to be coming this week. Erdogan has gathered a large force in and around US and SDF forces that has embedded former elements of ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
3. The ability of the SDF to continue detention of 70,000 ISIS in Howl Camp including approximately 25,000 fighters is also unclear and may settle the issue of the repatriation of the ISIS forces to Europe when they arrive as part of Erdogan's jihadist forces.

#Turkey has welcomed #Hytera into #Istanbul with open arms. Hytera (based in #Shenzhen, #China) manufactures OTA (over-the-air) encrypted radios which have been found in the hands of #ISIS.

BONUS: #Motorola recently accused Hytera of “industrial espionage on a grand scale.”
… just in case you doubt me about #ISIS using #China-made #Hytera radios, here’s a bit of #OSINT (and there are other photos you can find similar to these):
… and it doesn’t seem to just be #Turkey & #ISIS who seem to love #China-made OTA encrypted #Hytera radios. This photo purports to be taken in #Afghanistan, of a #Taliban’i jihadi:

A big night here in Istanbul as @ekrem_imamoglu upsets the apple cart in #Istanbulelections. There’s been back slapping & congratulatory hugging, car honking & flag waving on my drive across the Bosphorous tonight, but seems quieter than maybe expected. What happens next? #turkey
@ekrem_imamoglu Nothing quiet about this though. Watching on tv as @ekrem_imamoglu shouts to huge Istanbul crowd - Raise up your hands, raise them for the women, for the young, for democracy, law & justice. In this city, we build the future.

A pivotal moment for Turkey. #IstanbulElections
@ekrem_imamoglu Everything will be fine! The Istanbul victor @ekrem_imamoglu with the boy who spontaneously came up with his hashtag campaign! #herseycokguezelolacak

With that, a warm good night from a mood of positivity, and a few more car horns, at least for tonight, from a sultry Istanbul.

"Today, 16 million Istanbul residents have renewed our faith in democracy and refreshed our trust in justice."

#Istanbul loss marks tectonic shift for #Turkey: decisive victory for Ekrem Imamoglu proves Erdoğan can be defeated, even on his home turf on.ft.com/2N8JIGV
Erdogan's gambit of challenging the results of the first #Istanbul election backfired badly.

Margin of victory for opposition:
March 31 = 13,000
Today = 800,000

Woooooooow....
#Erdogan’s nightmare has become a reality.
Viva @ekrem_imamoglu
Viva #Istanbul
#Erdogan tried every trick in the book, from flirting with #PKK’s Oclean, to liken @ekrem_imamoglu to #Egypt’s Sisi.
All failed.
#Imamoglu won.
Erdoganistan is officially in twilight!
#Erdogan made a major error of judgment when he ordered Istanbul re-run election.
Now, he may now try to portray himself as a democrat, but it is too late. The people of #Istanbul are the true abd BRAVE Democrats.

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Watching the so-called “Historic” #Istanbul Mayoral Candidates’ debates: The most boring live Pol debate I have ever watched. Partly due to not much experience in #Turkey media on this. The host sucks; terribly sucks with the most boring/flat questions... BORING!
I believe there is a YouTube version with English subtitles as well. Anyhow. Not worth it. Two candidates reading from the list of things they will do as a mayor- spending $X billion on training, $Y billion on daycare... and no one knows where all the money will come from ...
It is like two toddlers’ Christmas wish lists for Santa😂😂😂Zero controversial tough question from the host. Zero challenge. Just plain ridiculous & boring.

New documents reveal #Turkey' founder Ataturk buys chemical warfare from Nazi Germany (1937) to use against Kurdish Alevi civilians of #Dersim.

Turkish dictator Ataturk killed ten thousands of civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan in 1937-38

#twitterkurds #Kurdistan #Turkey #Istanbul
Poisonous gas bought from Nazi Germany were: Sulfur mustard (iperit), Phenacyl chloride (chloroacetophenone).

Documents show, Ataturk orders poisonous gas to be transported to Elaziz (Elazig) to be used against civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan.

#twitterkurds #Turkey
Ataturk proved to Hitler that killing civilians with poisonous gas is "not a crime" in 1937 and then Hitler walked in his path and did exactly the same to Jewish people in Germany.

Kemal Ataturk gassed Alevi Kurds in caves of Dersim, Hitler gassed jews in chambers of Auschwitz..

Seçim sonucu Analizi:

Erdoğan 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #İstanbul'u kaybetti.

Melih Gökçek'in 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #Ankara Kaybedildi.

Çeyrek asırdır aralıksız seçilen ve binlerce büyük projelere imza atan bir parti neden kaybetti?

Bazı Nedenleri sıralayalım...
* Ak Partinin Kadın politikalarındaki rezaleti.

Kadın için çıkarılan yasalar Batı yaşam tarzı baz alınarak yapıldı. "Kadının beyanı esastır" diyen aile bakanı zina edenlerin yanında yer aldı.

Ak Partinin kadın politikası aileyi dağıttı, Ak parti ise aile üzerine kurulmuştu.
*Damadın Hazineye atanması

Başkanlık seçimlerinden sonraki en büyük hayal kırıklığı Damadın hazinenin başına atanmasıydı.Bu atama ne etik nede ahlakiydi

Bırakın karşı mahalleyi Erdoğanı yıllarca iktidara taşıyan kendi kesimi bile bu atamayı hazmedemedi. Alınmalıydı ama alınmadı

Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

🇹🇷 Elections locales en #Turquie dans un climat économique très dégradé par rapport aux présidentielles et aux législatives de juin 2018. economist.com/europe/2019/01…
🇹🇷 Dans ce contexte, l'opposition espère faire basculer plusieurs villes majeures :

➡️#Ankara, où @mansuryavas06 du #CHP (centre-gauche laïque) semble bien placé pour l'emporter
➡️#Istanbul, où @ekrem_imamoglu (CHP) est au coude-à-coude dans les sondages avec @BA_Yildirim (AKP)
🇹🇷 La troisième ville du pays, #Izmir, est un bastion du CHP et devrait le rester, mais l'opposition CHP+İYİ (nationaliste laïque) espère aussi gagner les grandes métropoles d'#Adana, #Bursa ou #Antalya et de nombreuses villes moyennes.
