A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

#Kuwait is mobilizing its defense and security systems after drones originating from #Iraq, crossed its airspace into #SaudiArabia airspace. It's not a #Houthi affair. It is an Iranian pincer movement.

I have warned months ago that the region was to witness a mass #GameofDrones
I've underlined many times including in OpEds & on FoxNews that #Iran will open a northern front on #Saudi & the Gulf from #Iraq & backed by its presence in #Syria. It's happening. Iranian missiles in Iraq are now the "northern threat to the Gulf

#BREAKING: Largest ever attack against Oil facilities #SaudiArabia's #Aramco is carried-out by Loitering drones launched from #Iraq in support of #Houthi rebels in #Yemen. As its result two Aramco's facilities were hit 4 times in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq early morning. Here is the video
#BREAKING: According to a source from Royal #SaudiArabia Air Force, the loitering drones which attacked the Aramco's Oil facilities in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq early morning today are most likely launched from #Iraq & not by #Houthi rebels in #Yemen.It took 3 hours to control the fire👇
#BREAKING: Without the help of #Iran's Islamic Regime & #IRGC it is almost impossible for #Iraq's #PMU (Hashd al-Shaabi) or #Yemen's #Houthi rebels to carry-out such a massive attack at #SaudiArabia's Oil industry deep inside the country's territory in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq today.

Check out “Before & After” #USA Meddling: From #Iraq to #Afghanistan #Libya & #Syria. Missions Accomplished? Numbers & Facts. - - - “Nearly 4,000 Afghan civilians killed or wounded in first half of 2019, UN says” sabahdai.ly/1dh6z9
...And then define that “Mission”. Interestingly, 3 out of 4, targeted the “Only” Secular nation’s in the #MiddleEast: #Iraq #Libya #Syria & Brought to them #Extremism. Now compare these to #USA chummy allies: #SaudiArabia #Kuwait #UAE.
How can you let them tell you “liberation” when in action it is supporting, spreading & sustaining: #Wahhabism #Sharia #Extremism #Terrorism (aka #alQaeda #ISIS)? How can anyone with half a gram of brain swallow and allow these atrocities in their name & tax-money?!

Frage ist, wo die von #Großbritannien vorgeschlagene europäische Marinemission zur Sicherung des Seeverkehrs in der Golfregion fahren könnte, ohne in eine Konfrontation mit dem #Iran zu gelangen. #Thread
Denn die Meerenge von Hormuz im #PersischenGolf ist an ihrer schmalsten Stelle weniger als 60 Kilometer breit. Sie ist ein wichtiges Bindeglied – zwischen den Ölproduzenten in der Region und den Märkten in Asien, Europa und Nordamerika. Mehr als 30 Prozent des Erdöls,
das verschifft wird, wird durch die Straße transportiert. Kommt es wirklich zur Eskalation werden wichtige Ölproduzenten wie #SaudiArabien, #Kuwait, #Qatar oder #Bahrain ihr Öl nicht verschiffen können. Der Iran hat immer wieder gedroht, diese Meerenge zu schließen.

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

My live update on the opening statements of the #OICMakkahSummit underway now.

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
King Salman: I thank President Erdogan for his leadership in previous session of the OIC Summit.

#OICMakkahSummit
King Salman: #Palestinian issue remains the central question at the heart of OIC's work. We reject any illegal change in the status of Al-Quds/Jerusalem. The Palestinian people will receive our full support to achieve their legitimate rights.

The larger game of #Arabs vs. #MuslimBrotherhood is a conflict that is quietly playing out diplomatically across the region. #Qatar & #Erdogan strongly support MB, #Egypt/#KSA/#UAE strongly opposed to MB, #Sudan has overthrown MB, and #Kuwait/#Jordan/#Tunisia are in the middle.
Besides #MuslimBrotherhood's quest to overthrow govts and bring idealistic Muslim rule, the other threat facing the region comes from #ISIS & #IRGC, representing Sunni & Shia religious extremism. Both want to overthrow govts and introduce their own versions of Islam.
Where is #Pakistan in this game? Most #Pakistani elite don't even know what's happening on the ground. Few at Pak military+MOFA understand & follow this. #MuslimBrotherhood existence in Pak is negligible & peaceful, but #ISIS/#IRGC represent a threat and are being countered.

I have long wanted my first book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution to be available in Arabic, the first language I spoke. It is already available in 11 other languages. Soon, I will have good news about Arabic!
The English-language edition of Headscarves and Hymens is banned in #Saudi Arabia, #UAE, #Kuwait and probably #Qatar too. So you can imagine what it has been like trying to sell the Arabic-language rights!
And soon too I will have Arabic subtitles for FEMINIST GIANT Rants - my one-minute videos - and I promise I’ll be soon recording some rants in Arabic too. You can find all the rants on my YouTube channel - go look for it and subscribe 😘

“There is a lot of interest in fleeing #Saudi women at the moment but the situation for #Emirati and other women in the #Gulf is often just as bad.” As I often asked about Rahaf’s story: what are these countries doing to women that makes them seek asylum? theguardian.com/world/2019/feb…
“women remain second class citizens in the #UAE, where the concept of “male guardianship,” incorporated in UAE law,” @hrw hrw.org/news/2015/03/0…
#UAE abuses are too often overlooked because of the flashy facade and glitz of #Dubai and because it is not as big as or as influential as regional behemoth #Saudi Arabia. Look closer and pay attention.

Translation of tweets from the #Saudi woman trying to flee into asylum who said she is being held at #Bangkok airport: “I am the girl who escaped #Kuwait to #Thailand. My life is in real danger if I am forced to return to #Saudi Arabia.”
“My name is Rahaf Mohamed. I will publish my full name publicly if my family and the #Saudi embassy and the #Kuwaiti embassy man don’t stop chasing me”
“I am 20 years old and I should be able to live alone, freely, independent of anyone who does not respect my dignity and who doesn’t respect me as a woman.”

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.
