The American Jewish Congress released a statement on May 8, 2023 on Bashar Al Assad rejoining the Arab League. This is a good time to recall why this is not a good idea after #Assad attended an Arab Summit in #SaudiArabia over the weekend. Read this #thread⬇️/1

The #AmericanJewishCongress is alarmed that efforts are underway to rehabilitate #BasharAssad. Before any normalization, Assad needs to talk to the opposition, eliminate #Iran presence in #Syria, and initiate a political transition in accordance with UNSCR 2254. /2
Sharing our concerns about rehabilitating #BasharAlAssad is more than half of Syria’s population displaced by #Assad’s actions over the past decade, says @JackRosenNYC, President of #AmericanJewishCongress. /3

Jordanians want sanctions on Syria lifted

Jordan's exports to Syria increased by 23% during the first 7 months of 2022, but are not close to prewar levels.

Jordanian economists demand that the Caesar Act that disrupted trade be lifted.…
“The international sanctions on #Syria must be lifted, and Jordanian-Syrian economic relations must return to the status quo ante,” wrote Musa Al Saket, a member of the Amman Chamber of Commerce.
“The sanctions are unfair to our economy & the Syrian people,” he wrote. “Twelve years since the war broke out, more than 90% of the #Syria population lives below the poverty line, with limited access to food and medicine. This is a major catastrophe,” Saket added:

There is a controversial HUGE secret hidden in plain sight all around the world.

But as much artifacts that could be was carted away and hidden beneath places like the #Smithsonian institute & the #vatican.
[they] hid the traces of GIANTS from us as much as possible.
Taking exhaustive measures by removing bones from "indian" mounds, relics, artifacts, texts and countless archaeological relics of these GIANTS to cover up the massive truth of our real past.

Jordan benefits from lavish assistance from the US, its far-and-away largest provider of aid. That it gets away so easily with harboring a killer of Americans shames all those involved. That certainly includes the news industry, the think-tanks and the analysts who cover it up.
So where's the outrage? Americans including our child were murdered in an act of savagery for which a fugitive terrorist takes open credit. Years go by and most of America's senior political figures pretend not to notice that #Jordan shelters #AhlamTamimi. This is bizarre. Image
Both sides of US politics ignore it. The fugitive says it's about religion, yet most human rights orgs steer clear. We're not into conspiracies but this is black and white. Justice is trampled and the silence from the many we've approached for support is crushingly consistent. Image

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

How ISLAMIZATION occurs when
there are sufficient MUSLIMS in a country.... #Thread

When culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable'
Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under
the table. Here's how it works...👇🏻👇🏻 Image
📍 As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will
be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

(#UnitedStates --1.0%; #Australia --1.5%; #Canada --1.9%; #China --1%-2%; #Italy --1.5%;
#Norway --1.8%)
📍 At 2% and 3% Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

(#Denmark --2%;
#Germany --3.7%; #UnitedKingdom --2.7%; #Spain --4%; #Thailand --4.6%)

Northwestern #Syria#Idlib & #Aleppo in particular — have suffered 12yrs of brutal conflict. More than 65% of the basic infrastructure of the area is destroyed or heavily damaged.

Tonight’s earthquake couldn’t have hit a more vulnerable region.

An absolute disaster.
Utterly horrific reports coming from all across NW #Syria - every town I’ve heard from has dozens of buildings flattened. People stuck under the rubble.

Any many, many casualties — including children.

@SyriaCivilDefe will be heroes tonight, working amid heavy rain & sleet.
I’ve heard from x3 hospitals in #Idlib & N. #Aleppo — all are full, every bed taken by emergency cases following tonight’s earthquake.

As rescuers & civilians seek to extract people & belongings from rubble, there’s mass panic about aftershocks.

@SyriaCivilDefe stretched thin.

#earthquake with epicenter reportedly in #Turkey was felt throughout the region. Many people i know woke up to the shake. Some went into streets. #lebanon #jordan #Syria
This is strongest #earthquake I felt since #egypt’s 1992 destructive one. In #beirut, waking up in middle of night to shaking building brought back terrifying memories of #aug4 #beirutblast in 2020. Where to hide?
This time, I am in a new building with 2 four-legged dependents and no @leenasaidi to pull me out of house. It took a few minutes to regain composure. Still contemplating what to do with drake and smudge

🧵on "East" #Jerusalem

1) People are trying to justify yesterday's horrific attack on Jews (as they exited synagoguge prayers during the holiest day of the week) by saying it took place in "East" #Jerusalem, a term made up by #Jordan when they occupied this land in 1948
2) Did you know that Batn Al-Hawa حي بطن الهوى the largest part of Silwan #Jerusalem was established by #Yemeni Jews in 1881? The land was purchased by the Ezrat Nidachim charity fund and included synagogues, yeshivas, and many homes
3) Here is a picture from 1890 showing Yemeni Jews (with our famous sidecurls) working the fields, with the Yemeni neighborhood in the background

מחאת המשאיות 🚛🚚 - מה קורה בממלכת #ירדן? 🇯🇴⛽
מה הסיפור ואיך הכל התחיל?
לאחרונה, עלו מחירי הדלק במדינה.
בשנת 2012 היו שתי העלאות במחירי ה #דלק. ההעלאה השנייה (10%) שהייתה אמורה להעלות את המחיר לליטר לדינר (כ1.4$ בזמנו) הוציאה את הירדנים לרחובות וכמעט והופלה הממשלה. >>
ב2012 ההחלטה הושעתה ע"י המלך והסערה שקטה, לבינתיים.
באמצע דצמבר 2022 שוב התקבלה החלטה להעלאת מחירי הדלק אלא שהפעם מחיר הדלק הוא כבר 5 דינר לליטר מאחר וירדן כבר אינה מסוגלת לסבסד את הדלק. מסיבה זו, המלך #עבדאללה השני לא יכול לעצור את ההעלאה במחי החלטה כמו בפעם הקודמת. >>
עם משכורת ממוצעת של הרבה פחות מ2000 ש''ח העלאה כזאת היא בלתי אפשרית עבור הירדני הפשוט.
נהגי המשאיות, הנפגעים הראשונים מעליית המחירים, לא מסוגלים לעמוד בזה. פשוט לא משתלם להם להיכנס למשאית ולהניע.
כאן חשוב לזכור ולהזכיר ש #ירדן תלויה במשאיות כמו אוויר לנשימה.
רק שני שדות תעופה >>

הציפור הלאומית של #ירדן 🇯🇴
#ציפור קטנה עם גוון ורדרד-כתמתם שנפוצה באיזור המדברי מסיני בואכה סעודיה.
היא משגעת את ירדן. הבנק המרכזי של הממלכה הודיע על שטרות חדשים וקשים יותר לזיוף>>
וגם על עיצוב חדש לשטר בשווי של #דינר אחד: הציפור הלאומית תחליף את הלוחמים והדגל מהמרד הערבי.
המרד המדובר הוא המרד של שבטים #ערבים בעזרת והכוונת הבריטים ובראשם תומאס אדוארד לורנס המוכר כלורנס איש ערב, כנגד האמפריה העות'מאנית במהלך מלחמת העולם הראשונה. זו ראשיתה של הלאומיות הערבית השטר הישן והחדש...🇯🇴🐦
ושל מדינות הלאום הערביות. אז עם כל הכבוד לציפור...
וביננו? זה רק שמן למדורה של חוסר השקט הקיים עכשיו במדינה דווקא בקרב #בדואים.
אז אם אתם בדרך לצ'יינג' חשוב שתדעו שהשטר החדש בשימוש כבר יומיים...
