#HRW's predictably anti-Israel report on #Gaza quotes the UN that Israel killed "260 Palestinians, including at least 129 civilians."
Uh, Who were the other 131?

HRW doesn't say it: they were combatants & commanders - legit military targets.
Some of those civilians...
1/
#HRW continued...2/
Tragically, some civilians were #Hamas' human shields.
As I pored over lists of Gaza dead compiled in #Israel, I found a case that would repeat itself: a senior Hamas commander, his wife, & 15 y.o. daughter.
Legit in laws of war, but listed as 2 civilians.
#HRW 3/
It came as no surprise that .@evanhill, producer of the @nytimes hatchet job on #israel for the buildings that collapsed on Wehda St, is a former HRW employee. Wehda St is a major HRW report topic.
It becomes clear #NYT & HRW shared research, fixers, & cinematographer.

Does this newspaper have an editor?
ِReducing the significance of the government's role in destroying water resources by mentioning drought/climate change first is absurd. This regime created this man-made drought. No talk of #IRGC's projects that destroyed Khuzestan's resources.
Does #NYT investigate the #Why, #What, #When, #Who and #How of the problem & #Rafsanjani, #Reformists and #IRGC imposed destructive dams & water diversion projects from 1989 to 2005 that were continued under #Ahmadinejad and #Rouhani? Dams that are killing marshes and rivers?
Does #NYT dig deeper to see how those reformists who occupied the US Embassy in Tehran later led the #Iran_Water_and_Power_Resources_Development_Company and were behind the #Karkheh & #Gotvand and #Karun3 dams that are part of the problem? Ali Zahmatkesh, Mohammad Na...Karkheh dam is one of the m...Gotvand dam. https://www.me...Karun 3 dam forced over 10 ...

#BREAKING Proof of @nytimes fraud in its #Gaza Hit Job against #Israel.

The NYT shows only 10 seconds of #Hamas narrow tunnels.
The video WAS TAKEN IN 2014!

Pic 1. 2021 vid. Min. 7:00. Man red Kaffiya.
Pic 2. Same man in 2014.
He's wearing PIJ emblem

nytimes.com/video/world/mi…
2/ NYT: There were no videos of the Hamas tunnels in May 2021?
Were NYT local fixers & photographers working for or scared of Hamas?
Was the 2014 clip added in the NY office?
Here's a trustworthy video from Qatari source.
3/ After the @nytimes journalistic jihad vs Israel with the front page gallery of kids supposedly killed by Israel, & now using 7 y.o. footage to misrepresent the threat of #Hamas tunnels, the #Israel government probably has only one choice.
Persona non grata status for #NYTimes

Great scoop by the @nytimes but with all due respect... The scoop isn’t in the sensational headline. It’s in the body of the story suggesting whatever the UFO’s are, they aren’t our technology. THAT IS A MONUMENTAL DEAL. nytimes.com/2021/06/03/us/…
Quick & very basic overview on what UAP/UFO’s could be.
1.Secret Government Project ❌
2.Foreign Adversary ❓
3.Private tech development ❓
4.Something else ❓
The #NYT appears to be ruling out the 1st option. But why is headline is about aliens 🤔
For decades the stigma surrounded UFO’s has come from our pavlovian reaction that it must mean aliens. But in doing so we ignore so much about physics that is still beyond our grasp. We might not even fully understand how lift works! (H/T @DietrichVFA41) scientificamerican.com/article/no-one…

💡At an invited speech for a Cornell law students group, I was asked if I'd be ok with banning "affirmative action" resulting in 50% of ⬇️ in black enrollment. My response: "Are you insinuating black students can't get ahead w/o preferences?" 🙊 @LegInsurrection @ConceptualJames
2)Just to throw out some relevant info. on affirmative (racial) action (preferences). The very woke #NYT ran an editorial on 08/24/17 w. this title-“Even With Affirmative Action, Blacks and Hispanics Are More Underrepresented at Top Colleges Than 35 Years Ago.” @FreeBlckThought
@FreeBlckThought 3)40%+ of black students at overrated Ivies are from African/Caribbean immigrant or hybrid families. While URM applicants from well-off families benefit, poor Asian and white kids get the shaft. The whole system downgrades. K-12 pipeline issues are unaddressed. @ConceptualJames

LMAO, @HirokoTabuchi deleted the Tweet after realizing how truly idiotic it was. These are the people in #media we're supposed to look to for UNBIASED, well-researched discussion of issues.

How can people trust the @nytimes on any topic, #bitcoin, #COVID19, #politics, etc?

Why is The New York Times allowing David Brooks to damage #NYT reputation?

Meredith Levien @meredith_levien is CEO at @nytimes.

Shareholders of $NYT stock should urge NYT board to protect the value of the @nytimes brand and cut Brooks loose. #ESG
.@katiekings is Editor of The New York Times editorial page. Kathleen Kingsbury, why is #NYT allowing David Brooks to stain your reputation?

#NYT $NYT #Journalism #ESG #RiskManagement
Dean Baquet, executive editor of @nytimes, emailed me, saying Opinion doesn't report to him.

David Brooks is employed by The New York Times Company. No employee of any publicly traded corporation should be allowed to damage the reputation and value of the company. $NYT #ESG

Logik zum #Öffnungsplan der #Bundesregierung
Wo, wie und wie schnell infiziert man sich mit dem #Coronavirus? Solange die Regierung Entscheidungen - magels Datenlage - ohne Evidenz trifft, solange ist es Willkür, wann welche Bereiche geöffnet und andere geschlossen bleiben #Spahn
Die Mutante #B117 erreicht in diesen Tagen -in den ersten Bundesländern- ihre #Dominanz. #R steigt zeitgleich und die #Regierung erhöht per #Öffnungsplan die #Mobilität: B117, Öffnungsplan u. gesteigerte Mobilität sind drei Faktoren die logisch #R exponentiell beeinflussen können
Zeitgleich werden #Kitas u. #Schulen geöffnet, also die Versammlungsorte, vor deren Öffnung uns Experten und Ärzte aus #Israel u. Kanada warnen. Begründet wird die #Öffnung mit "Meinungen" von Wissenschaftlern, deren #Studien -manipulierte Daten- aus #Schweden zitieren #twlz #KMK

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc

Thread: How would YOU visualize poll tracker data? You have 50 US states and a race to 270 Electoral College votes. Here's a thread of several approaches from the media, with one pro/con for each. #ElectionViz (1/11)
#YouGov goes for a traditional approach: stacked horizontal bar chart and standard US map.

Pro: Easy to find any particular state.
Con: Size is based on physical area, not number of electoral college votes

today.yougov.com/2020-president… (2/11)
#Politico is similar but uses a tile map

Pro: each electoral college vote is the same size. States are sized according to EC. (British perspective: California gets loads of votes!)
Con: a bit harder to find a particular state. Unusual display.

Comment la corruption et le dysfonctionnement du gouvernement libanais et du port de Beyrouth ont-ils permis l'assemblage accidentel d'une bombe massive - et comment celle-ci a-t-elle explosé, seconde par seconde...
#NYT nytimes.com/interactive/20…
L'explosion— le symptôme d'un système corrompu dans lequel les pouvoirs politiques sont tellement intéressés à "traire" le port pour des gains illicites qu'il reste peu de temps pour la sécurité publique de base.
Le hangar qui a explosé était un dépotoir de matières dangereuses, mais il était alimenté en électricité ne disposant d'aucune alarme.
Des milliers de tonnes de nitrate d'ammonium stockées près du kérosène et des tonnes de feux d'artifice... Image

ICYMI: “Deutsche Bank executives approved Mr. Epstein as a client in 2013 and then kept working with him, even though employees worried about the fact that ‘40 underage girls had come forward with testimony of Epstein sexually assaulting them.’”-@nytimes
nytimes.com/2020/07/13/bus…
“Deutsche Bank..has paid more than $9 billion in fines since 2008 related to a litany of alleged and admitted financial crimes and other transgressions, including manipulating interest rates, failing to prevent money laundering, evading sanctions on Iran..engaging in fraud.”-#NYT
“Deutsche Bank executives ignored repeated red flags, including suspiciously large cash withdrawals and 120 wire transfers totaling $2.65 million to women with Eastern European surnames and people who had been publicly identified as Epstein’s co-conspirators.”-@nytimes

In the @NYTimes piece against me they claim "that I "frequently appeared on #FoxNews to discuss the dangers of Islamic terrorism & Shariah law." Not accurate. I don't use the term "Islamic terrorism" but "Jihadism." A rebuttal @ #PittsburghPostGazette here
markets.post-gazette.com/postgazette/ne…
I don't use the term "#Islamic" but rather the word "#Islamist." I carefully select my words based on academic research. I make sure it represents the meaning in English and #Arabic. The @NYTimes writers put words I haven't used (neither in my books or in the media) in my mouth.
Either because their assigned writers and "investigative journalists" are not trained in comparative politics, which is a problem for the once "prominent" #NYT or because they copy this narrative from the #MuslimBrotherhood and Iran playbooks against me, which by far, is worse.

Oh I am gonna have fun now. I was keeping my mouth shut out of respect for @husainhaqqani. Husain has Liked & Retweeted a Thread of lies against me.

Let’s talk about Husain & me.

A Thread:

1. Husain and I go back 21 years. 1999.

2. I landed in Pakistan. Was appointed
A Member of National Reconstruction Bureau. The first member.

3. Hussain was introduced to me and started to befriend me.

4. He had no symptoms of anti Pakistan rhetoric at that time. My interest in him grew because I love Urdu poetry and Husain had one of the most amazing
Memories when it came to Urdu Kalam. He would sit for hours and recite poetry for me.

5. Every other day he would be sitting in my office at The PM secretariat asking me to be introduced to “The Generals”. He wanted me to help him get PR work for a company he was

Imagine you turn on the television & you watch a guy doing the talk show rounds; (@davidenrich)
telling the world YOUR life story focusing on all your mistakes. Using Concepts you explained to him. Even speaking your words verbatim - words that you taught him - as his own...
...Now imagine he changes tact, speaks of your father & his suicide, & how he,(& he alone) KNOWS more than you about your fathers life!
THEN he (#davidenrich) destroys your reputation & character, lies in let’s say, @nytimes, calling you terrible, false, & exaggerated names, ...
...You watch & listen show after show, as he presents ALL the work & research YOU’ve done for 5 years as his own! (@davidenrich) rather than give you a thread of credit, he continues to attack you... after all, now you’re now just a “complicated character” with “drug problems”...

Looks like the State Dept had a talking to with the Chinese ambassador that's been spreading CCP propaganda that the US started the #WuhanVirus.
The CCP/#China's Foreign Ministry Rep has been tweeting things such as this:
Hmmmmmm 🧐

So, Italy's been taking in teams of medical experts from....the CCP.

The “left” tukde-tukde gang misses that the common Indian is deeply nationalistic. Congress completely yielded that to the BJP, even showing up in JNU to support #TukdeTukde.

That can win in editorials in #NYT and #Economist, it suits them; it can never win hearts or heartland.
The electorate is nationalistic. It is Hindu.

The “Left” in India is out of touch.

BJP is far more vulnerable on its right flank. If Congress had announced “Mandir vahin banayenge”, would have created serious disruption.

Agree bhai.

I’m saying that you cannot attack the mainstream and hope to win. Many nationalistic Muslims supported Ram Temple but Congress took Islamist view.

I've ruminated quite a bit on the anonymous op-ed published by NYT.

I've read it at least a dozen times.

I've listened to what really smart people have to say about it.

No matter how I litigate it in my mind, I always end up at the same bottomline.

#NYTimesOpEd
Although I am grateful there is a group of people within the administration who are mitigating Mr. Trump's worst inclinations, I do not believe the motives of the author are as altruistic as they claim.

Because no one is the villain in their own story.

2/
#NYTimesOpEd
In truth, the author is admitting that s/he is guarding their party and their grasp on power before they are protecting the country.

Because there are Constitutional remedies for this situation.
