Incoming #EU High Rep @JosepBorrellF’s first speech gave us a glimpse of #EUdiplomacy’s next 5 years. #EPhearings2019

His endorsement by the Parliament was never in doubt. Still, Borrell’s energetic speech went further than expected.

👇THREAD:

2/ Borrell shared views with his trademark outspoken tone and all the famed sides of his character:

☞ The mature #EU integration enthusiast and former European Parliament President

☞ The responsible internationalist development buff

☞ The assertive Spanish foreign minister
3/ Borrell raised a shield in defence of the rule-based multilateral order, pointing to Ukraine as evidence of the dangers ahead if it keeps unraveling.

The sub-text: ‘I am not just talking about Moscow being unilateral, Mr Trump’.

Q: Wieviele Soldaten sind derzeit im Auslandseinsatz?
A: Wenden Sie sich doch an die Fachpolitiker
Q: Aber die Politiker schicken die Soldaten doch in den Einsatz und daher die Frage, ob man weiss, wieviele und in welche Länder?

Amid the ongoing conflict in NW #Syria, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (#HTS) continues to evolve in intriguing ways - into a more politically mature & intelligent jihadist movement.

It's current leadership clearly seeks to position itself somewhere between #MuslimBrotherhood & #AlQaeda.
There's now little question that #HTS no longer represents #AlQaeda.

It's clearly still an extremist movement, but signs continue to add up indicating that it's developing into something qualitatively different than the Jabhat al-Nusra of 2014-15 - a "Shami #Taliban," perhaps.
Most recently in the public space, #HTS issued a statement acknowledging its willingness to abide by an externally-negotiated (by #Turkey, #Iran & #Russia) ceasefire.

That was a first.

Its never happened before in #Syria & it's not a move any #AlQaeda affiliate would ever take.

The phased and responsible termination of the #OpPRESENCE rotation with @UN_MINUSMA in #Mali begins today. We are ending transport aviation tasks to focus solely on medical evacuation operations until the end of August.
Over the past year, our peacekeepers conducted more than 100 transport missions, flying nearly 3,500 hours in support of @UN_MINUSMA and @UNPeacekeeping in #Mali.
This contribution has enabled the secure movement of @UN_MINUSMA to remote and vulnerable areas of #Mali, and reinforced @UNPeacekeeping efforts to improve stability and security in the country. Bravo Zulu to all those who made these missions a success! #A4P

Big news from the latest @UN report on #ISIS/#alQaida was ISIS' rebuild strategy and that much of it is being directed by Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi out of Iraq

But there are a number of other interesting observations in the report...
On #alQaida, the @UN intelligence suggests the group although the health of AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri & AQ's succession plan "are in doubt"
The @UN report also concludes #alQaida-aligned groups "are stronger than their #ISIL [#ISIS] counterparts in #Idlib, #Syria|n Arab Republic, #Yemen, #Somalia and much of West #Africa"

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4

1) BREAKING: #ISIS’ Furqan issues new video showing leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, marking the first time he is shown in a video since his July 2014 sermon at the Great Mosque in #Mosul
2) The video shows Baghdadi in a casual conversational setting with others (their faces blurred). He talks about war against "Crusaders" and about battles in #Baghouz #Syria being over, indicating that this interview was filmed somewhat recently.
3) In the vid, titled “In the Hospitality of the Emir of the Believers,” Baghdadi praises #SriLanka attackers over images of the attackers/attack (though not in the visual interview section; the audio may have thus been added via a later recording)--calling it revenge for Baghouz

RT - Révélations sur la future mosquée An-Nour de #Mulhouse, l’un des plus grands projets #islamistes d'#Europe, et ses liens avec le terrorisme #djihad. A dérouler 👇
La mosquée An-Nour va être inaugurée le 6 mai prochain, premier jour du Ramadan. C’est la filiale locale de l’#UOIF, l’@AMAL, qui porte le projet. Avec ses 1500 m2 de salles de prière et un total de 10 000m2, ce centre islamique se classe parmi les plus grands d'#Europe.
Dans leur passage sur @ONPCofficiel, @Malbrunot et @cchesnot ont évoqué la face sombre de cette mosquée #UOIF, notamment l'implication de la djihadiste Hanane Aboulhana.

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

1) This week saw a terrorist mass murder in #Mali where 140 (mostly Muslim) #Fulani died, incl. children & pregnant women. It didn't get much space in the "Western" press compared to what happened in New Zealand. People will tell you diff. in coverage about "cultural proximity."
2) Few problems w/"proximity" argument in global news coverage. First, I'll bet most people in US/Europe didn't have faintest idea who was NZ PM before the Christchurch attacks. Or anything about NZ society. So, what's the "proximity"? This: they're (mostly) white, speak English.
3) Second problem with the "We don't cover Mali because it's not relevant to our audience" argument is that, while not covering Mali, same media companies don't cover poor non-white communities in their OWN countries. So, what's excuse there? Because it ain't lack of "relevance."

La revue #Afriquecontemporaine est morte. La démission du directeur scientifique Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos @ird_fr le confirme. Une intervention politique vient de censurer et interdire la publication de notre dossier sur le #Mali après l’approbation du comité scientifique
Je dirigeais le dossier, composé de mon introduction à celui-ci, d'un article sur les groupes armés, un autre sur le Centre du #Mali, un repère sur la RSS, le mien sur les interventions internationales et autres ajouts de la rédaction. Les auteurs s'identifieront s'ils le veulent
Le processus d'évaluation des pairs a été rigoureux. Deux articles qui devaient être inclus dans le dossier ont été rejetés. Les autres ont subi les critiques et ont été révisés en conséquence. Suite à cela, la publication avait été approuvée et prévue par l'équipe scientifique

Nigeria’s 2019 Election:
What Are We Missing?
Vote buying. Thuggery. Rigged primaries. Logistical
failures. Official misconduct. Ballot box snatching.
Budget delays. Voter apathy. Intimidation. Turnout
suppression. Inconclusive results. Bribed officials
#NigeriaDecides2019
These and many other challenges routinely undermine the credibility and smooth conduct of elections in Nigeria.
