Statement by Arab League foreign ministers following emergency session totally rejects Trump's peace plan and calls on US administration to abide by internationally-acknowledged terms of reference for peace negotiations. Thread:
The statement affirmed East #Jerusalem as a capital of the State of #Palestine, the right of the State of Palestine to exercise sovereignty on all its territories occupied in 1967, and on its air space, territorial waters, natural resources and borders
The Arab FMs rejected the "Deal of the Century". It doesn't meet the minimum requirements of the Palestinians and violates all previous agreed terms of reference upon which negotiations were held as well as int'l law. They called on Trump's administration to abide by these terms.

Statement by Al-Awda, The Palestine Right of Return Movement on the “Deal of the Century.” (THREAD) 🇵🇸

In the aftermath of the release of U.S. president Donald Trump's "Deal of the Century," we at Al-Awda deem it necessary to issue a statement regarding the ill-fated proposal.
Although the proposal (#DealOfTheCentury) isn't worthy of acknowledgement, and is by no means a roadmap to restoring justice or instilling peace, we still feel a measured response is required by Al-Awda, The Palestine Right of Return Movement. 🇵🇸
There is absolutely nothing in the "peace plan" that is beneficial to Palestinians. It is an insult to the dignity of our people to suggest otherwise. It does not end the occupation, but rather attempts to absolve Israelis of the responsibility of the occupation of #Palestine🇵🇸

Mahmoud Abbas,
You, the Resistance movement, Hassan #Nasrollah and the #terrorist regime of #Iran have so far caused the death of so many Palestinians.

✔️Forget about the son of the #former_Shah of Iran or the #MEK coming to power..

It's so interesting that the wife of the former Shah of Iran, Khomeini, Khamenei, the MEK and the son of the former Shah of Iran all love Mahmoud #Abbas and #Palestine.

✔️After the regime change in #Iran ,
the Cyrus Empire will be established in my country!...
#MIGA #MAGA
...
Your filthy game will end when the Restart opposition comes to power.

Our ultimate goals are to fight Radical Islam, eliminate terrorism, change the regime, establish the Cyrus Empire and unite with America and Israel.

Five nuggets mined from @POTUS #Israel-#Palestine peace plan that commentators may have missed on a quick reading: 1/6
1) Plan cites 1949 Armistice negotiations as a rationale for Triangle proposal, an #AvigdorLieberman favorite, to transfer 10 #Arab towns/villages from #Israel to #Palestine. Imagine if Palestinian negotiators cited '49 precedent to claim land currently inside #Israel? p. 13 2/6
2) Despite affirmation of the "same governance regime that exists today" for #Jerusalem holy sites -- and despite #Trump's appeal to #Jordan's king yesterday -- plan does not specifically endorse special #Hashemite role in preserving holy sites. p. 16 3/6

#Bahrain, #Oman, and #UAE attended #TheDealOfTheCentury today amongst Americans and Israelis as a representation of the Arabs as Trump unrevealed the new #Israel & #Palestine maps, however there was no Palestinians. These 3 nations represent less than 1% of the Arab pop. (1)
Historically speaking, the Arab world was led by three civilizations - Egypt, the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine), and Iraq. These three nations make up most of the Arab population in the Middle East. (2)
An old Arabic expression says Egypt writes, Lebanon prints, and the Iraqis read. When these three nations led the region everyone lived in peace, including all minorities. (3)

Trump's "Peace Plan" in a nutshell: Israel gets to steal a massive amount of additional land, Palestinians get to pretend they have their own country - but they can't have their own military and #Israel will continue to control its brutal security / occupation over #Palestine. 🤣
Trump's "peace" plan is dead on arrival. It's a blank check written out to his Zionist puppet masters to pillage #Palestine as they please. Why even unveil this absurd trash? Doing so demonstrates not only that he's a Zionist tool, but that he has ZERO skill at real deal-making.
Trump's proposal says #Palestine can be it's own state, but #Israel will control all security over the territory WEST of the Jordan River. Of course, ALL of the proposed Palestinian state is west of the river - meaning Palestine would still not be free. #PalestineWILLBeFree

How British Imperialists Created the Fascist Jabotinsky
Jabotinsky and Weizmann were instruments of Lord Alfred Milner who craftily used them to secure British rule over #Palestine as part of the 1916 Sykes-Picot agreements.

modernhistoryproject.org/mhp?Article=Ja…
The Betar Naval Academy was a Jewish naval training school established in Civitavecchia, Italy in 1934 by the Revisionist Zionist movement under the direction of Ze'ev Jabotinsky, with the agreement of Benito Mussolini.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betar_Nav…
Indeed and Jabotinsky's Betar blackshirt uniforms bore a striking resemblance to those worn by the British fascist Oswald Mosley's and his own blackshirt thugs.

My mother taught us to ward off the Evil Eye by spitting. 💦

According to this #Syriac #manuscript (Or 6673) there are more hygienic ways of eliminating it, and a host of other ailments, misfortunes and generic evils. Let’s see what they are!

(Props to the Evangelists)

📿🧿
Let’s cut the gentle humour for... one tweet. This #manuscript was copied at the end of the 19th century by Church of the East believers in northern #Iraq. It’s part of a long tradition of prayer and medicine in the region, and it relies on a number of different belief systems.
Ok, first up is fear. St. George was not afraid when he slew the #dragon (also identified here as a Great #Monster), so why should you be? Offer him a prayer to allay distress and fears.

THREAD on the changing attitudes to the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (#BDS) movement.

I’m NOT commenting upon the efficacy, morality or legitimacy of the (BDS) movement – just the shift in attitudes to it, especially within the @UKLabour party, since 2014.

#Israel
#Palestine
Following yesterday’s announcement of the Board of Deputies’ #TenPledges, & the near universal & uncritical acceptance of it by #LabourLeadership candidates, I want to say something about the profound shift in attitudes to BDS within @UKLabour, since 2014.
Legitimate & proportionate criticism of some of the actions of the Israeli govt can & still too often do too easily slide into comments which are understandably construed as antisemitic. ALL of us on the left must obviously try to avoid this.

A decade in review: the moments that shaped the past 10 years in #Israel/#Palestine

Another decade of the Israel-Palestine conflict ends and a peaceful and just solution for the Palestinians seems further out of reach. Look back at the moments that shaped history in Palestine and Israel, and will continue to shape the future of the region for years to come.
2010: A glimmer of hope at the beginning of the Obama era

In his historic "A New Beginning" speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, Obama promised to mend relations with the Muslim world, and highlighted peace between Israel & Palestine as key to that goal.

#THREAD: Trump plans on signing an #ExecutiveOrder that redefines #Judaism as a nationality - thus transforming a religious status to a national one equivalent to #Israel- in order to crush student protest and knowledge production at the university level. A few thoughts...
1. This may make some claims against university activism actionable under the 1964 CRA by defining Judaism as a “national origin” but note that similar claims have already been actionable under Title VI and those have been dismissed not because Judaism defined as religion.
but because there has been a significant lack of evidence to demonstrate a hostile environment. The change is in the USG’s willingness to prioritize these claims under the leadership of Betsy DeVos and Kenneth Marcus- a move we already witnessed in the scrutiny of Duke and UNC.

WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Catch up with the latest stories from @MintPressNews that the #MSM was too afraid to cover, like the alarming SWAT-style arrest of government critic and journalist @MaxBlumenthal, in the Trump administration's escalating war on #FreePress. mintpressnews.com/arrest-journal…
@MaxBlumenthal Rather than do its job, part of which is to keep governments in check through watchdog journalism, Western media has failed its own, abandoned the public, and allowed itself to become an arm of US imperialism through propaganda and media blackouts.
Whether it's the shocking political arrest of fellow journalists like Blumenthal or #Assange, or anti-government protests around the the world, #MSM news coverage is dictated by foreign policy and whether or not sitting governments (or journalists) are considered U.S. allies.

Just saw #GazaFightsForFreedom by @AbbyMartin and @MikePrysner of @EmpireFiles in Toronto last night

Screening hosted by @mexieYT
Panel included editor Taylor Gill
@AbbyMartin @MikePrysner @EmpireFiles @mexieYT Wonderful film. Important. Beautifully shot. Well made

Gazan journalists contributed footage and interviews - and did so on four hours of electricity per day

Please everyone see this movie

Trailer:
@AbbyMartin @MikePrysner @EmpireFiles @mexieYT Film opens with a family on a beach. I have seen many maps of Gaza before. Much of its border is coastline. I have seen very few images of Gaza beaches.

Just as I was reflecting on this, and the interesting choice to open with it, @AbbyMartin's narration explains:

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

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:

twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
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’.
