You might be surprised to learn that #Iran protects it's #Christian minorities, while the #US military occupation drives them from #Iraq and #Syria , using the #Kurdish card. farsnews.ir/en/news/140008…
Notice that @articleeighteen and a number of other US and UK funded groups have been set up to run propaganda against #Iran - mostly aimed at western audiences in English - to sustain the economic and terrorist war against the #Iranian people
😅😂@Article18 says "we ARE the #Iranian people", based in #London, funded by the Brits, speaking English. 😅😂🤣

12th Nov #TheDayInHistory

The First Round Table Conference officially inaugurated by His Majesty George V, #OnThisDay in the year 1930 in Royal Gallery House of Lords at #London. In this conference Dr #BabaSahebAmbedkar demanded separate electorates for the "untouchables".
First Round Table Conference was held during 12 Nov 1930 – 13 January 1931 at London. Dr #BabaSahebAmbedkar, during his presentation in 1931 round table conference, described the Indian society as divided in three distinct sections — Hindus, Muslims & the depressed classes.
Dr #BabaSahebAmbedkar further stated that India can be truly independent only if these classes elect their own representatives for taking part in the process of government. #DrAmbedkar, thus, juxtaposed the class concept on caste division in India.

From green spaces to sustainable living, here's how we can make the most of our precious time. timeout.com/things-to-do/c…
We don’t want to point the finger, but cities have a lot to answer for when it comes to #climate change.
If we are to go some way to undoing the damage humans have inflicted on the world, then real change is going to have to happen in massive cities like #London, #Tokyo, #NewYork and all the rest.

So, the #UAE is the first to meet in-person, in the open with #Assad -- the 21st century's #Hitler.

Not a good look for a foreign ministry that in its own words, was established to "support internationally recognized morals & ethics."
As I wrote several weeks ago, the path towards #Assad's normalization may have been partially paved, but the ambiguity of the #Biden admin's #Syria policy & its inaction has provided an opening.

Green or orange light is irrelevant -- the effect is clear.

Some suggest the recent surge in engagement with #Assad is an implementation of the often discussed "step for step" approach.

Nonsense.

#Syria's regime is giving nothing in return for normalizing moves by the #UAE, #Jordan, #Algeria & others -- it remains as brutal as ever.

A dual departure by @VirginAtlantic & @British_Airways from the westerly runways at @HeathrowAirport this morning to mark the opening of the #USA to double vaccinated travellers. But why did one #aircraft go North (the long way) and the other go West? Thread… #Airport #WePilots
The simple answer is, that if both take off at the same time and go west towards @JFKairport, they will eventually get in each other’s way. So the aircraft (@VirginAtlantic) on 27L continued straight ahead on a CPT departure & the (@British_Airways) turned north on an UMLAT.
This also allows the #aircraft to both climb to the optimum cruising level and cross the #Atlantic Ocean almost side-by-side. The more northerly track will obviously add more miles and therefore time to the journey. Whilst it was never a race, the more direct routing always wins.

ارشاد بھٹی اور جاوید چوہدری لوگوں کو چغد نہ بنائیں کیونکہ جس قسم کی قتل و غارتگری تحریک لبیک پاکستان نے کی ہے دونوں ماضی میں اسکی حمایت کرتے رہے ہیں -

قیامت کے دن سوال اللہ کریگا نبی کریم (صلعم) نہیں کرینگے

مفتی منیب کو مشاجرات صحابہ کی غلط مثال دیتے ہوئے شرم آنی چاہئیے
مفتی منیب الرحمان متنازع اسلامی سانحات پر بالکل غلط مثالیں دیتے رہے ہیں کچھ سال قبل لندن میں ایک ٹی وی چینل پر یذید کی حمایت بھی فرمائی تھی اور اس وقت بھی وہ جس جنگ جمل کا حوالہ دے رہے ہیں وہ بصرہ میں حضرت علی (رع) اور حضرت عائشہ (رع) کے درمیان ہوئی تھی حضرت معاویہ (رع) سے نہیں
بے ادب ، گستاخ مولویوں کو اندازہ ہی نہیں ہوتا کہ وہ ایک صحابی (رع) کا قول دہرا رہے ہیں اس قتل عام کا جواز دینے کے لیئے جو موجودہ دور کے مسلمان ایک دوسرے کا کررہے ہیں جبکہ حضرت علی (رع) کا قول صرف اور صرف جمل اور صفین کے افسوسناک سانحات پر تھا جس میں دونوں طرف صحابہ (رع) تھے ۔

Sky himself was lackadaisical about merchandise sales in #Hanover. He and Jenny lingered after the rally to greet people lining up to shake his hand— for free.
In #Peterborough (Oct ‘21), Sky used garbage bags for storage & display but acquired a tent.

The task of selling merchandise was delegated to volunteers. Meanwhile, Jenny appeared to collect/keep tabs on the money and Sky stood a slight distance away for his meet-and-greet.
Despite poor display & logistics, the Skys managed to do brisk business. Cash only. #Peterborough

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

And so the adventure begins!
Step 1 of the adventure and pretty fucking horrified at the insane queue for Fast Track security in @DublinAirport. Joined q for 5 minutes and moved about 1 meter. Left and accessed the main security lane instead. Moving much faster. Thanks so much @GrantThornton €7.99 wasted
Likely to be one of the last times I fly this airline @British_Airways due to their absolutely appalling decision to withdraw status privileges in Dublin Airport (and many other airports in Europe) from their loyal customers but for today I’m stuck. @HeadForPoints @turningleftfor

Courtesy reminder that Rishi Sunak MP, the man in charge of the country's purse strings and perhaps the strongest voice insisting that the extra £20 a week to those on Universal Credit must be cut, is one of the richest men in the country.
Sunak's wife, Akshata Murty, is the daughter of a Billionaire. She owns shares worth £430M in her father's company alone, meaning she has more money than the Queen.
Sunak himself, is a former hedge fund manager and Goldmann Sachs banker who attended the elite boarding school of
Winchester College. Today it costs £41,709 to send a child there for one year.
Sunak's property holdings span several continents, and just one of his homes in #London alone is worth £7M.
This is the man holding down the minimum wage and refusing to properly pay our key workers.

New paper: we looked at how long it takes to go from idea to reality for transportation infrastructure in #Toronto, Canada and #London, UK. journals.open.tudelft.nl/ejtir/article/…

Short answer: a long time
What's going on? Dithering on priorities and funding
Is red tape the issue? Not so much
This paper was supported with funding from the UCL - U of Toronto Call for Joint Research Projects and Exchange Activities. @BartlettUCL @global_uoft @UofTCities
We found on average 18 years pass from when a project is first proposed to when construction starts (caveat we only looked at projects that did actually start construction).

#Biden's decision to stick to the Aug 31 deadline is bold -- it raises 2 key risks:

1) We'll be leaving people behind, certainly 1,000s of #Afghans & quite likely, a few Americans in hard-to-reach spots.

2) Other G7/NATO states have been rebuffed again by #Biden -- more anger.
"#Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal."

Overall approval rating now 41%.

New polling on #Afghanistan's impact:

usatoday.com/story/news/pol… Image
BREAKING -- The US military has begun re-withdrawing from #Afghanistan, per US officials.

Very worrying sign for the 10,000s of those left behind - mostly #Americans, but some U.S. & European nationals too.
