THREAD 1. Since posting about #HolocaustMemorialDay , encouraging us to remember where hatred leads - #Srebrenica + #Holocaust genocides for example + standing up against #antisemitism #homophobia #Islamophobia #racism etc, I have been trolled
2. Who are these trolls? They are sick, narrow minded bigots of the Muslim faith (+ one Islamophobe). What have they been saying? Well I've been called: shabbos, House Muslim, House Arab, sellout, Zionist, shill for Israel + accused of attacking the right to free speech
3. Free speech and antisemitic speech are two different things. I reported this bigot because he is a bigot and Twitter clearly agreed with me. Free speech is not the right to promote hatred. I did call someone a nutjob I admit and got told I was demonising others

Odio l'ipocrisia. Per settimane Malta (Unione Europea) ha rifiutato lo sbarco di 49 migranti da navi private battenti bandiera tedesca e olandese perché "non si creasse un precedente", grazie soprattutto alla mancanza di un accordo all'accoglienza tra gli stati UE. Viva l'Europa.
*Navi ONG ribattezzate (probabilmente a torto) "taxi del mare", che avallano de facto la tratta migranti, lucrosa per trafficanti di uomini senza scrupoli che si approfittano di povera gente in un continente sfruttato da secoli per le sue risorse naturali.…
Questa è la realtà e sarebbe l'ora di smetterla di girare la testa dall'altra parte e affrontarla in modo SISTEMICO.

@IanDunt We are. Problem is distribution. We just aren't getting traction with those who have platforms.

I was an assoc. prod on a pro-EU documentary. Critics who usually review our director's films said sorry, no can do & some cinemas declined to screen it for fear of Brexiter backlash.
@IanDunt Here's one of my own small efforts:

If your #body becomes very pleasant we call it a #pleasure

If your #mind becomes pleasant, we call it peace; if it becomes very pleasant we call it a #joy

If your #emotions become pleasant we call it a #love; if they become very pleasant we call it #compassion
If your life #energies become pleasant we call it #bliss, and if they become very pleasant we call it #ecstasy

If your surroundings become pleasant, you call it #success
A #seeker on the path of #awareness knows that #Pleasure, #Peace, #Joy, #Love, #Compassion, #Bliss and #Ecstasy are all different states of #Body, #Mind and #Energy, not the achievement milestones you can #conquer in an external world.

#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.

1/ THINK: Are the Deep State really scared?

If so, how long have they feared our awakening?

Go to the 1970's. #Peace & #love

This was a large WW awakening. This was a large call to accountability, peace and freedom.

Much prophetic music was produced by courageous artists.
2/ Immediately after the '70's we saw a surge in TV channels, gaming platforms and new technology.

The '80's saw many fall back asleep to Atari, Space Invaders and many great new movies.

The 90's gave rise to the internet and mobile phones.

The rest is history.
3/ Was this an accidental surge in global technology?

I say it was not. I say that we caused it.

We are the cause of everything. Our #GreatAwakening is all that is occurring NOW.

The Deep State members are petrified. Their authority has been removed - by OUR CONSCIOUSNESS.

Those who saw and survived the pain, misery and destruction of war in the first part of the 20th century - with millions of innocent men, women and children slaughtered with disregard and disdain amid the brutality of war - cried out in union "Never Again" 👊🏾💚 (1/)
Yet when politicians and powerful business interests sat in comfortable chairs on comfier salaries in distant offices, decide to impose war on the masses - it is not them but the children and loved ones of working people who are compelled to make the ultimate sacrifice. (2/)
There have been just and necessary wars. Those from every culture, every religion and every background gave their lives to push back the monstrosity of fascism in the hope of lasting peace - the sanctity of which we must preserve. (3/)

(1) #TeamTrump #PhotoThread starting October 28, 2018.

🇺🇸Previous thread from October 13:

(2) POTUS Trump would have the same views whether or not 3 of his grandkids were Jewish but, in honor of those lost at the Tree Of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, I Kushnerized tweet (1). They're the most well known Jewish American kids & for me it's about #love #family & #peace.
(3) Most of us don't know those harmed in Pittsburgh but we know the faces of Arabella, Joseph, & Theodore.

My thoughts are with everyone targeted by prejudice, especially because of their faith or ethnicity. A crime against any human is a crime against all humans.

2. ...#DeepState lords in the #Democratic party. #HRC and #Hussein aren't the face of the democratic party anymore. We can tell that by the severe lack of attendees at their "rallies". They're has-beens, criminals who will soon be in prison. They're irrelevant, trying...

We spoke with @CynthiaMcKinney On

How The United States Creates “Sh*thole” Countries…
McKinney told us: "The old political schema no longer works, and these [contributors] are people from all kinds of ideological backgrounds... and yet they were all able to come together and establish as a fact, that #Peace has a broad constituency in the United States.
Given the ongoing debate as to the viability of working with those from opposite sides of the political spectrum, (…) McKinney’s book is especially timely in its encapsulation of cross-ideological collaboration. She explained:

How many of the novels in #pbsgreatamericanread #GreatReadPBS are for #peace #antiwar? Here's the ones I know or hope are:

1) 1984 by George Orwell
2) A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
3) Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Others can be read to contain anti-war messages

Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya
Dune (esp later books in the series) by Frank Herbert
Game of Thrones series by George RR Martin
Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
War & Peace by Tolstoy
I haven't read all of them. I expect Vonnegut's "The Sirens of Titan" to be anti-war.

On the flip side, The Left Behind series is fanatically sectarian hate speech celebrating mass killing. One wonders if PBS would have allowed Mein Kampf or The Turner Diaries to make the list.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

Liebe 🇩🇪'e Mitbürger,

in der letzten Zeit habe ich als Muslim gelernt, dass wir uns sehr ähneln.

Ihr habt Radikale unter euch, wir auch. Ihr habt Extremisten unter euch, wir auch. Ihr habt Spinner unter euch, wir auch. Lasst uns zsm arbeiten 🤝.
Es gibt viel zu tun.

Manchmal sind es wirklich nur einfache Worte, ohne große politische Motive. Einfache Worte, die verbinden und gut tun, Menschen zusammen bringen und das Gleichgewicht herstellen.
Ich bin überwältigt. Fast 10K Likes!

Ihr Lieben, ihr macht mich noch ganz rot ☺️.

Danke! 🖤 ❤️ 💛 🤗

Für ein buntes und pluralistisches Deutschland, für Freiheit, Gleichheit und ein würdiges Leben!

Dafür werde ich mich aktiv einsetzen.

1)I don't have too many followers but I would appreciate if you could RT.

My Great Uncle Eion passed away a fortnight ago, when sorting his things we found his #WW2 diary. From 17yo he fought across Europe and Africa. A true #British hero who gave my generation lasting #peace.
2) Jan 27th was the first time he was wounded. Less than a year after joining the Para's.

By the end of April he was on the front lines at the infamous battle for Monte Cassino.…
3) I've been told by those who have served in different branches of the military that one of the toughest things they have to deal with is when the promise of being relieved from the front line is cancelled. It happened to my Uncle. A lot.

I read a short #InspiringStory and found it #TooGoodNotToShare...

A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :

✖️Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time
✖️The same year I became 60 years & had to give up my favourite job.I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.

✖️The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
✖️And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote:
✖️✖️Alas! It was such bad year !!

If @MarkDuplass is the man I think he is, a good guy who wants to unite people, I feel for him tonight. Last week, he tried to open minds by suggesting people follow Ben Shapiro, the Mob came for his head to frighten Mark into silence.. cont 1
The called @benshapiro all kinds of awful names - like racist & homophobe. They took old tweets, some out of context, some from 10+ years ago that Ben had already addressed and apologized for. But, it was enough for @MarkDuplass to retreat,,, cont 3
3. Some came to speak for both Mark and Ben - such as @BretWeinstein only 2B smeared as the mob on both sides had decided that a lynching must happen. Bloodlust - a thirst for total victory. One of the very vocal anti Ben voices was @JamesGunn - who is very good at smearing foes

A reporter asked “"Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”

Putin said “Yes I did!”

People may say Putin ignored the 2nd part of the question.

Really? Is Putin or Trump lying about Russian interference? 1/
Russian diplomats keep “dying”! Do you want this for America’s diplomats? Unthinkable right?

Not to Trump.... 2/…
Trump wants us to “sit up when he speaks” like North Koreans!

Some of the core drivers of the religio-political violence in #Nigeria are failures to harmonise religious, political & civic impulses. I will try to summarise and discuss some of them here. #NotAnotherNigerian @QuilliamOrg
1. #Nigeria is a civic state, with much devout religious practice, mainly Christian and Muslim. Religious loyalty should not undermine civic loyalty, but sometimes does. Eg should Muslims be concerned about the 'ummah' & Christians about fellow believers only? #NotAnotherNigerian
2. The #Nigerian state apparatus, including the legal system, is heavily influenced by Britain. The Muslim areas used to have traditional Sharia, and were part of the Sokoto Caliphate. Sharia always had many interpretations: many of these were civic in nature. #NotAnotherNigerian
