VIP escort arranged by #Netherlands govt for female #ISIS #Daesh terrorist's return home from #Syria. Female ISIS members committed horrific crimes and provided material support for genocide + terrorism. #Yezidi #Yazidi

video via @HaraldDoornbos

@telegraaf @ADnl @volkskrant
Some may wonder why female #ISIS #Daesh members are given protection by their home governments, considering the literal GENOCIDE the Islamic State perpetrated against #Yezidi #Yazidi . Partly, it is because European states wrongly assess female ISIS members as not culpable.
Meanwhile, as these #ISIS #Daesh member is being brought home through the funding and protection of the Netherlands government, more than 2800 #Yezidi #Yazidi women and children remain unaccounted for in aftermath of ISIS's brutality and genocide

Saturday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here.

Thanks so much for everyone who contributed yesterday, if you have no idea what I'm on about here's another sneaky link to my crowdfunder!

It's a quite start today following the flurry of news last night..…
So a lot of data and a couple of new stories came in during the last hour or so of Friday, including South America data.

You can catch up on #Argentina #Brazil #Colombia #Bulgaria #Norway stats, and some #OlympicGames news by clicking and scrolling ⬇️

Now more very concerning news from #Bahrain, one of the most vaccinated territories on the planet.

#Covid19 cases are still rising there - more worrying is the real increase in deaths too.
Second highest daily number of new cases & deaths in the latest update

Rotterdam looking incredibly glamorous, there. #Eurovision
This is basically Anywhere by Rita Ora, but without getting a restaurant manager sacked. #Eurovision
Good budget-saving move for them all to share the same dress, but I'm not sure it's going to look good on James Newman. #Albania #EUROVISION

It's #Eurovision week!

After last year was cancelled, they're going ahead this year with a limited audience.

Here's this year's entries. My prediction: 🇲🇹#Malta will win.

More on that below in the thread you didn't ask for but are getting anyway (1/21).
You might ask: this is 1st & foremost a TV show with theoretically no need for performers to be in same place, why was 2020 cancelled (for 1st time in 65 years)?

Answer: Eurovision rules are strict. There wasn't enough time to change them to allow contestants to compete remotely
#Netherlands is hosting this year in Rotterdam, because they won in 2019 with Arcade.

I'll be heading up there to cover it, luckily it's just 90 minutes away.

The rules are quite strict: constant testing & separation of audience, contestants and press.

Interesting set of charts showing extremely high affective polarization in Spain and Greece — predictable but still unnerving — and, contrary to some reporting, extremely low polarization in the Netherlands.
It comes with what seems like a major caveat, however: they're based on the proportion between how much people dislike other parties and like their own. But the Dutch electoral system means there are relatively many parties close to your own:

I was wondering yesterday to what extent that makes these data less comparable across countries, as Dutch respondents were in part evaluating other parties that in another country would have just been another wing of the same party.

Police violence is very alarming in the #Netherlands.
The police's role is to protect the people not beat up peaceful protestors.
These men and women in uniform have a completely confused sense of duty. They are committing crimes for their government.
What crime justifies stepping on somebody's head?

1/. Some people just can't take criticism

Did you know that it's illegal to insult a leader in more than a dozen countries

In Poland, a journalist faces up to 3 years in prison for calling President Duda a "moron" in a Facebook post in November

Lighten up Duda, you d******d! Image
2/. Insulting leaders could land you in jail for 3yrs in #Venezuela, 4yrs in #Turkey, 5yrs in #Netherlands, 7yrs in #Bahrain & 15yrs in #Thailand

In #Spain, you can go to jail for insulting the King or the police as rapper @PabloHasel found to his cost
3/. In America, insulting Donald Trump became a national pastime

In Britain, Boris Johnson plays up his “loveable buffoon” image as he clowns around on zip wires & in hard hats

But whilst Trump & Johnson may be very different animals, they both fulfil a very similar function. Image

Sunday's #Coronavirus megathread will, as always, be updated throughout the day with news, data and analysis.

Few paid attention while we warned of rising #Covid19 cases in the Balkans then central Europe. Now everyone's concerned as big nations suffer.

Come inside folks!
And I'll start with Europe's biggest nation (in population), #Germany

A further 27% rise in #Covid19 cases confirmed overnight with 10,572 new infections for Saturday vs 8,311 the week before.
#Brazil's been the focus of much attention of late as deaths soar.

The number of people who were reported to have died of #Covid19 yesterday actually dipped, but only because it's the weekend. In fact 1,940 deaths is 30% higher than last Saturday's 1,498

New cases: 70,934 (+5%)

The daily #Coronavirus thread is underway.

If Friday turned out to be fearful, we can only hope it's not a shocking Saturday.

More and more countries and regions heading back into lockdown as #Covid19 spreads quicker then the vaccines.

And already today new record - read on..
The first record to report is from crisis-torn #Brazil

For the 3rd successive day over 2,000 deaths.
But it's new #Covid19 cases rewriting the record books today with 84,047 positive tests, that's 12% more than the week before

2,152 more deaths takes total fatalities over 275k
Almost a record for #Norway too tonight.

905 new #Covid19 infections diagnosed in the last 24 hours, just 25 below the national record. Today's total is 31% up on the previous week.

Over 300 more Covid patients have been admitted to hospital in the last 2 days alone.

Ik lees overal dat lockdown tot dan en dan wordt verlengd, maar er is allang geen ‘lockdown’, scholen zijn open, nu winkels en kappers etc, en mensen gaan nog steeds naar hun werk. Overdag winkelende mensen, groepen 3-4 samen, mensen gaan bij elkaar op bezoek en reizen weer.
Meer versoepelingen op komst en dRiNgEnDe AdViEs om niet naar buitenland te reizen waarschijnlijk anders na 15 april, want naar Friet van Piet in Lloret de Mar muss sein. En we zitten op +30.000 besmettingen p/w. #COVID19NL #Netherlands @ContainmentNu
Ik weet niet meer wat percentage #LongCovid was, 10%? Zo ja dan zijn dat +3000 nieuwe chronische zieken per week, dat is dan het pErSpEcTiEf die @MinPres bij volgende #persconferentie gaat bieden. @SiccoVanHoegee @MisterBlok @Vickyvdtogt
