A new thread focusing on far-right subcultures and their ostentatious imagery among foreign armed actors involved in #Muslim-majority areas. One of the most notable examples is the so-called #Crusader subculture noted among U.S. Marines deployed in #Iraq and #Afghanistan.
A worrisome trend popular among a growing amount of U.S. armed troops is the intentional and ostentatious wear of anti-Muslim iconography and symbols with references to the Crusades and the Knights Templar. This has been noted by Foreign Policy (excerpt below) and others.
The "Pork Eating Crusader" patch mentioned above is one of the more popular patches used, referring to the prohibition of consuming pork in #Islam. The patch features both English as #Arabic, so there will be no confusion among the intended audience.

In conversations allegedly secretly taped by the late #Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, former #Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim reportedly said that the #AlJazeera news organisation is controlled by the #MuslimBrotherhood.. 1/
...and was heard discussing how to direct the network’s coverage with the country’s former emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani.

The unverified recordings were posted on social media by a Qatari opposition activist.
The #MuslimBrotherhood is of course the oldest and most pervasive #Islamist group in the #MiddleEast, using both violent and non-violent means to attempt to impose a version of #politicisedIslam as the government on all regional nations.

This is an example of what #Turkey & #Qatar are doing to #Libya now. After capturing #Tarhuna from #Libya National Army today, #Syrian mercenaries & Islamist militias of #GNA used this #Turkish made Kirpi II MRAP to break into #Tarhuna's Mall before looting every shop there!
This video reminds me occupation of #Mosul by #ISIL/#Daesh in summer 2014. These Islamist militias of #GNA as well as #Turkey backed #Syrian Mercenaries captured city of #Tarhuna from #Libya National Army. They can be seen shooting their guns & terrorizing people.
Watch these #GNA's Islamist militias showing off the weapons & equipment which they have captured from #Libya National Army after occupying the #Tarhuna today. Two BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launchers, several pick-up trucks and ammunition can be seen among the captured weapons.

"criminal networks, militia groups, government officials, and private employers exploited migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in sex and labor trafficking" #GNA #Libyan

"Endemic government corruption and militias’ influence over government ministries contributed to the GNA’s inability to effectively address trafficking."
Don't take the State Dept's word for it. Always best coming from their own mouths:

[ Thread: Internationalized #manpower in the war for #Tripoli ]
Long before #Ankara began sending #Syrian Turkmen fighters in Dec to help the #GNA, the number of gung-ho fighters willing to go risk their lives on behalf of the #LNA in W #Libya was insufficient.

That is an important reality even if pro-#LNA voices are loathe to acknowledge it
That’s why the #LNA has used #Sudanese mercs throughout 2019. On LNA side, Sudanese mercs have been basically part of the furniture, eliciting little comment.

Above issue is also the reason why the arrival of a few hundred #Russian fighters near #Tripoli in Sep had a big effect.

#BREAKING: According to a former #Turkish Air Force pilot, two Airbus A400Ms of the air force transferred almost 250 Jihadists of #Syrian National Army to #Istanbul from Gazientep airfield minutes ago to be transferred to #Tripoli, #Libya by passenger airplanes within next 4 hrs!
My source corrected me and told me that, #Turkish Air Force has No intention to send these Airbus A400M transport airplanes directly to #Libya due to the fact that #Egypt|ian Air Force's F-16Cs supported by #UAE|AF Airbus A330 MRTT tankers are patrolling in #Libya's airspace now!
#BREAKING: The first group of #AlQaeda affiliated #Syrian mercenaries from #Idlib are now on their ways from #Istanbul, #Turkey to #Tripoli, #Libya on-board flight Number 8U1971/AAW1971 of Afriqiyah Airways's Airbus A320-214 with 5A-ONL register.

The Libyan News Observatory AlMarsad claims it obtained the identities of senior Turkish military & intelligence team operating in #Libya, published passport copies of Turkish generals/diplomats. Unconfirmed reports that hostages kept by #Haftar are in fact members of this team.
The team is led by Major-General Göksel Kahya, deputy undersecretary of Turkey's Ministry of National Defence. Turkish government reacted strongly to the detention of Turkish nationals in #Libya and did not disclose their IDs.
Another high-ranking officer in the list is major general İrfan Özsert, the head of Turkish Military Intelligence and General Secretary of the Turkish General Staff. If he was among the detained as rumoured, this is a major screw-up by #Erdogan govt.

#Libyan authorities raided a women’s tweetup at #Benghazi cafe, detained staff & announced it had broken up an “immoral” gathering. Read more about how the raid was used to promote a “law and order” campaign & how it resulted in misogynist attacks against the women h/t @PSilphium
Why raid a women’s gathering? Is a group of women meeting that scary for #Libyan authorities? Or are they deliberately using misogyny to drum up support, pretending they put an end to “immorality” for the sake of “security”?
A group of women meeting in a #Benghazi cafe are not the #Libyan authorities biggest concern. There are serious security concerns they should focus on. This is a reminder that patriarchy uses “immorality” and the need to control women to drum up support.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

The Case for a ‘Strategic Backstop' mechanism for Libya

#LibyaStrategicBackstop
#Libya needs a strategic relationship with one member of the #UNSC to act as an International ‘Backstop’.

The purpose of the Strategic Backstop mechanism is to ensure effective 'Triangulation' of the #Libyan transition and ‘stop’ #Libya from falling ‘back’ into conflict
Without a strategic backstop mechanism, the unity and stability of the #UN Security Council itself is at stake.

In this thread I will lay out what why both #Libya and the International Community, need this backstop, and how it could function.

Twitter Thread - #NewStartforLibya

Ladies and gentlemen, the political and economic situation in #Libya today makes life hard for everyone, for #Libyans, our neighbours and the rest of the world. But we may still have hope that this can change.
I tweet today, not as a representative of any institution, faction or interest group but as someone who only wants the best for Libya; and #Libya surely deserves much better than she has had for the last fifty or so years.
I want to give you a summary of ideas that I have been developing for some time with a group of friends, professionals and academics which has become something of an informal think-tank.
