An interesting aspect of the Shura Elections is that candidates must be from a family that resided in Qatar prior to 1930. Article 80 of the #Qatar constitution as far as I can tell does not provide this requirement, simply that they be Qatari nationals. 1930 is mentioned in
the nationality law of 2005. 1930 is a date mentioned in the nationality law as the key date for which those residents and descendants of those residents have nationality. There are many other roads to obtaining Qatari nationality however, but the…
law on candidates for the Shura council does make a distinction between those with pre-1930 nationality and post 1930 nationality. As far as I know there is no formal distinction between citizen and national. Also I am not sure if there are numbers out there defining the

Un dialogo "didattico" sull'etica che pervade il mondo del liberismo italiano.

Da qui, in su, potete vedere una strenua difesa di qualsiasi attività che "porti soldi", rinnegando le discriminanti etiche.
(parto dal fondo per evitare le diramazioni)
Non importa che #Qatar e #SAU assassinino bambini;
non importa che le bombe italiane assassino bambini;
non importa che la mafia assassini bambini.
Sono tutti importanti perché generano PIL e posti di lavoro.

Sono come le sigarette (che idiozia questo divieto di venderle
ai bambini, mi vien da dire), il vino, il lardo.

Ovviamente, appena estendi il ragionamento (si fa per dire), dimostrando come nel passato quella logica ha portato il massimo schifo umano, il nostro liberista scappa, accusandomi di sminuire

.@SIGARHQ released its latest quarterly report on #Afghanistan today. Some key points in this THREAD.

@SIGARHQ Data from @USFOR_A shows that enemy-initiated attacks increased significantly since the signing of the US-#Taliban Agreement. During the past quarter (March – May 2021), USFOR-A reported 10,383 enemy-initiated attacks and 3,268 effective enemy-initiated attacks. 2/n
@SIGARHQ @USFOR_A Most ANA corps refuse to execute missions w/o spt from the ANA Special Operations Corps (ANASOC), according to NSOCC-A. When ANASOC forces do arrive, they're misused to perform tasks intended for conventional forces such as route clearance, checkpoint security, & QRF. 3/n

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

A number of people have been asking my thoughts on recent developments in #Afghanistan. Now that I’m back from a week of sandcastle building, a THREAD to that effect. 1/n

Hillary Clinton: “We Created #AlQaeda”. The Protagonists of the “Global War on Terrorism” are the Terrorists

“And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.”
And that is precisely what the #US is doing in Syria: using their #AlQaeda “Moderates” to fight against Syria and Russia. For Moscow, it is “Déjà Vu.

The plan in Afghanistan was to destroy the secular state and install a proxy U.S. Islamic State.
The same objective prevails in #Syria.

What Hillary does not mention is that at no time in the course of the last 36 years has the US ceased to support and finance #AlQaeda as a means to destabilizing sovereign countries. It was “a pretty good idea”, says Hillary, and

The #Houthis turned down the meeting because the peace plan does not go far enough to lift the blockade imposed by #Saudi . Mohammed Abdulsalam, spokesman for the #Yemeni #Anssarallah movement and senior negotiator for the
#Sanaa National Rescue Government, accused the #UN Security Council of prolonging the war against #Yemen. “You are talking about part of the ongoing battle and leaving the discussion about the besieged Yemen. That is not enough for the ongoing conflict, it does not address
the problem, it exacerbates it. ”He took the view that talking about a single battle - in relation to #Marib - does not help to achieve peace but rather prolongs the war.

Nevertheless, Maas is silent about the political and military cooperation of ex-President Hadi,

I did some basic open source-online search on this #US-based “#Turkey Democracy Project” & here is what I found:

✅It has 11 member in the Board of Directors and 2 members on the Team

✅Out of 13 people in a project dedicated for Turkey, only 1 Member is Turkish

✅Turkish media said he’s a FETO member too

✅The guy left his position in the project only few days after announcing it!

🚨Four of the Advisory Board (AB) of #Turkey Democracy Project (#TDP) are in the AB of Counter Extremism Project #CEP

✅CEP ws created by members of the AB of United Against Nuclear Iran(#UANI)

Arms Dealers And Lobbyists Get Rich As #Yemen Burns

JUNE 25, 2019
Chronic human rights violator Saudi Arabia is using American-made weapons against civilians in the fifth-poorest nation in the world, Yemen. And make no mistake:
U.S. defense contractors and their lobbyists and supporters in government are getting rich in the process.
The majority of the 6,872 #Yemeni civilians killed and 10,768 wounded have been victims of Saudi-led coalition airstrikes, according to the Office of the
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (#OHCHR). Nearly 90 coalition airstrikes have hit homes, schools, markets, hospitals, and mosques since 2015, according to Human Rights Watch. In 2018, the coalition bombed a wedding, killing 22 people,

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

Tip: When the word "warlord" is used to smear a government official appointed to his post by the only internationally recognized, democratically elected parliament of #Libya, it's a pretty good sign that the rest of the article will also contain other Islamist propaganda and lies
1/2) Patient X of Libya related fake news: Both terrorist orgs such as Al-Qaeda+Qatari-funded outlets first used the term "warlord," "Kafir,"+"Zionist" (classic) to smear Haftar, appointed by the parliament to combat #Libya's terrorist and militia problem and restore sovereignty.
2/2) Fake news first planted in Qatari funded outlets, including AJ, are then picked up by "copy+paste" Western press, think tank, institutions funded by Qatar and disseminated by powerful agencies such as Mercury, also funded by #Qatar. [cont]

Un thread sur la résistance palestinienne à #Gaza.

Pourquoi #Israel concentre toute sa propagande sur le #hamas?

Pourquoi les officines israéliennes en occident attaquent les frères musulmans?

Quel rôle/realtions avec les dictatures arabes alliées d'Israël?

C'est parti⬇️
1. Pendant que #Israel massacre les palestiniens à #Gaza, toute la communication et la propagande israélienne aussi bien en interne mais surout en occident, consiste et peut se résumer à ceci:

"#hamas, terroriste, nous attaque.
Israël, victime, ne fait que se défendre"
2. La porogande israélienne veut ainsi faire oublier la "root cause": colonisation, massacres, déportations, apartheid...qui sont le quotidien des palestiniens depuis la création d'Israël en 1948...bien avant la création du hamas en 1987.

COVID19 & variants spread worldwide, also by aviation.
Despite precautions like PCR- and Antigen-tests.

Why are there no figures?
● Commercial interests?
● Inconvenient? (we want to travel)
● Too difficult?

No... it's not too difficult.
