I just finished a call with a journo wanting to ask about #Pompeo's moves to recognize colonial settlements as part of Israel, to decry #BDS, and to collapse anti #Zionism and anti Semitism. A few thoughts. #THREAD
Re #BDS: It is not the core of progressive organizing or the heart of a movement, it is one of the few tactics left available to Palestinians and their allies as other tactics have been steadily and systematically maligned.
The US and Israel have always rejected #ArmedResistance, enshrined in Additional Protocol I (1977), as terroristic regardless of actual targets, namely military, and the PLO surrendered that right in 1993 in exchange for entering into the trap of the #PeaceProcess.

1/10: STATUS OF US-TALIBAN AGREEMENT AND IMPLICATONS FOR NON-FULFILLMENT #AFGPanel
I have in a previous thread dealt with the challenges of ascertaining whether the US-Taliban📜is one to which international law applies. Refer to👇🏽
2/10: Without belabouring the point, I have argued that as this is not an international agreement, no parties can resort to ICJ or other forums to ensure fulfillment.
Thus, if any issues emerge, the parties have to resolve them amongst themselves bilaterally or trilaterally.
3/10: I do not wish to undermine the importance of this Agreement because in any political accord, the most powerful incentive is counter-measures which is present here. In other words, if one party reneges, so will the other.

I am grateful to HE @SecPompeo for visiting to communicate & stress that Afghan leaders should solve the political crisis immediately at a time when the world is struggling to address COVID-19 pandemic. 1/4
Unfortunately, little use was made in Kabul of the opportunity that @SecPompeo’s selfless efforts offered to resolve the political crisis. 2/4
We highly appreciate US partnership & assistance & believe we will overcome any hiccups on the road to our common objectives of peace & security in Afghanistan & world. We are committed to #PeaceProcess & believe that negotiation is the way to resolve political differences. 3/4

Just a reminder: the European Parliament has so far commissioned from experts dozens of impact assessments or studies on #Brexit in 14 broad fields. They don't necessarily constitute the EP's official position but are all free & available here: europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/… Thread 1/6
They include studies on the areas in which the European Parliament has set red lines for its approval of any Article 50 deal, such as #citizensrights europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… & the effect of #Brexit on the #peaceprocess in Northern Ireland europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 2/6
The studies on #Brexit also cover other critical topics such as the internal market and #consumerprotection europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… and #financialservices europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 3/6
