A quick thread on #Algeria's slow embrace of renewable energy investment.

In the midst of the oil boom in the mid-2000s, #Algeria was making a LOT of money.

Sonatrach's 2008 revenue was US$76 billion.

US$76 billion...

There was a lot of pressure on #Algeria to create a sovereign wealth fund (SWF.)

Everyone was doing it. Saudi. Libya. UAE. Etc.

You could take your oil and gas receipts, invest them in diversified assets, and double, triple, quadruple their value!

The Continuing Regional Rapprochement of #Syria and #Assad

A thread 🪡

1/25 Image
In January I wrote about how, after over 10 years of brutal war pushed and funded by outside powers, the #MiddleEast was accepting that the #Syrian Arab Republic, led by #Assad would stay in power.…

The #USA and #NATO countries have been unhappy about things turning out this way, especially as #Syria is a close ally of #Russia. However, the Muslim states of the region are seeing that the future is cooperation, and that the SAR has won the war.

It's a while since I've had one of these, and not in response to anything specific - I've been very inactive on #WesternSahara lately. Must be a quiet day on a troll farm somewhere in #Morocco. Image
Anyway, I have a rule that whenever I'm trolled by agents of the #Moroccan state, I post photos of the Sahrawi controlled areas of #WesternSahara, to highlight the conflict & #Morocco's partition of this non-self-governing territory. Here's the view from Tin Gfuf, Southern Sector Image

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...👇🏻👇🏻
📍 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%)

All the threes. Day 333 of this dreadful war in #Ukraine

But there are not 3 sides. Succinctly you're against #Russia killing civilians, or you're in favour.

Being "neutral" is just allowing war crimes and worse these countries likely profit from the genocide, just as in WWII.
So this is the daily thread for Sunday 22 January.

If you had a busy Saturday and main stream media didn't tell you what you need to know, I can help! Scroll though yesterday's thread right here:

#SaveUkraine #StopRussia

#Russia still losing above average numbers of troops every single day even though today's figure is lower than of late.

600 more estimated (by #Ukraine) to have been killed in the last 24 hours

5,470 Russian militia have died in the last week.

Following @MoroccoGate #CORRUPTION scandal in the @Europarl_EN,I believe the public opinion have the right to know couple of details I have witnessed during years of advocacy work on #HR in #occupied #WesternSahara in this House of Representatives and other EU institutions.
I strongly believe that the criminal network is #Morocco made & the use of it by third countries,is diffidently a“service-rendu”by Moroccans who were extremely active in EP for decades.I’m not touching granting Morocco advanced status nor how the association agreement was secured
Before 2010-11,#Morocco was somehow comfortable at #EU level and it’s lobbying were basic.this will have two major turning points in its course:1-2011,the vote lost on fisheries agreement .2-2016,the start of @EUCourtPress’ ruelings on the illegal inclusion of #WesternSahara.

The #Pegasus documentary by @frontlinepbs confirms a lot of my research into the false Pegasus narrative

It starts off in the year 2020 filming @FbdnStories offices in France, they speak about a massive leak of 50,000 NSO Pegasus targets

"There are numbers but no names" Image

The documentary speak about the 50,000 number and says the following about it.

1. The list doesn't have any names
2. It has phone numbers
3. Country Code
4. Sometime stamps
5. It's a list from 2016-2020

"We can't explain where the list is coming from" Image

This information falls directly in line with what I reported in my white paper called Exonerating Rwanda: The spyware case of Carine Kanimba

@OCCRP & @FbdnStories claimed Kanimba's phone was found in a list of 3,500 Rwandan numbers, but Kanimba never had a Rwandan number Image

🧵on sidelocks פאות

1) The first question I always get when travelling in the West is why we grow long sidelocks?

The short answer is: it's not a fashion statement but rather an ancient Jewish tradition dating back at least 3,000 years

But there is much more to it...
2) The source for sidelocks in the Torah is in Leviticus 19:27

You shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard

לֹ֣א תַקִּ֔פוּ פְּאַ֖ת רֹאשְׁכֶ֑ם וְלֹ֣א תַשְׁחִ֔ית אֵ֖ת פְּאַ֥ת זְקָנֶֽךָ
3) The Mishna and Talmud discussed various opinions as to the definition of the "corner of the head"

The rationale was to differentiate from idol worshippers who shaved the side of their heads at the time

Yemeni and Hassidic Jews would let their sidelocks grow particularly long

1/Utk yg mau nyolot “jgn campurkan spkbola&politik” atau “ga ada korelasi / kausalitas antara pilihan politik dg mnang/kalah spkbola”, silakan skip aja.
Sy pngamat geopolitik, bkn spkbola. Yg pnting buat sy: tim Maroko telah mbuat p'nyataan politik
2/ Menyatakan pmbelaan pd Palestina, adalah pernyataan politik.
Th 2016, tim Celtic didenda £ 8.616 o/ UEFA dg alasan fans mengibarkan "spanduk terlarang" (yaitu: bendera Palestina) dlm prtandingan lwan klub Israel.
Kini dlm WC 2022, tim Maroko kibarkan bndera Palestina.
3/"Tabu" bawa2 politik dilanggar o/ FIFA sendiri, yg melarang tim Rusia ikut WC 2022 & mbiarkan tim2 Eropa mnunjukkan dukungan pd Ukraina. Lalu mngapa u/Palestina, msh ada yg nyolot "ga usah campurin politik dg sepak bola?"
