🧵It seems many overlook some of the problems and conflict of interest when football clubs transform into state-owned prestige projects, possibly due to their emotional attachment to the sport and specific clubs. Here, I provide three clear examples: #ManCity, #PSG & #NUFC. 1/5

Some interesting reports coming out of #Afghanistan over the past few days:

- roughly 2,000 #Taliban suicide bombers have been moved to the #Iran|ian border since the end of May.
- #ISKP has also started moving their fighters to northern #Afghanistan, according to sources within an anti-#Taliban group. They are being moved to #Badakhshan, #Takhar and some others.

Apparently, there are both @CIA and #ISI fingerprints on this.
- #Taliban are moving its fighters closer to the #Tajikistan border. Fighters are also moving to the #Badakhshan province, bordering #Tajikistan.

- #TTP have become so emboldened to expand their operations around #Pakistan, including new waliyats in #Balochistan & #Punjab.

1. #Erdogan et son parti AKP est au pouvoir depuis 2002, d'abord en tant que premier ministre et puis en tant que président avec le passage au système présidentiel après le référendum de 2018.

The Continuing Regional Rapprochement of #Syria and #Assad

A thread 🪡

1/25 Image
In January I wrote about how, after over 10 years of brutal war pushed and funded by outside powers, the #MiddleEast was accepting that the #Syrian Arab Republic, led by #Assad would stay in power.…

The #USA and #NATO countries have been unhappy about things turning out this way, especially as #Syria is a close ally of #Russia. However, the Muslim states of the region are seeing that the future is cooperation, and that the SAR has won the war.

Hammarby IF - Degerfors #UltraBoys #HIF #UltraBoysStockholm #Hammarbaj #Bajenfans #Södermalm Pendant le match, les #ultras de #Hammarby ont aussi passé un message à Zlatan Ibrahimovic, qui avait fait l'éloge du #Qatar, après la Coupe du Monde (02/04/23)
Message des #ultras à Ibrahimovic qui détient 23,5% des parts de #Hammarby, suite à ses déclarations élogieuses sur #Qatar2022 "Pour certains, la CM au Qatar, c'est 10/10. Pour nous, c'est un autre point noir de l'histoire du football. Que Hammarby appartienne aux supporters !"

#US war in #Syria
Following the US occupation forces' attack on Syria & its allies in Deirezzour, killing 7 & 7 people were wounded, the resistance forces bombed again US bases stealing the oil from Al-Omar and Conoco oil fields with 8 missiles. Image
The #US House votes down a bill to withdraw troops from #Syria as if the country belongs to the Americans, not the Syrians, whose government never invited the US and its NATO allies to occupy the north-east and steal its energy.…
See how the news is manipulated in one short article?
The title is: 'New Iranian rocket attacks injure more US forces in Syria.' Inside the story: "Iranian proxy."

These are Syrian forces and their allies fighting ISIS. No mention of US 'occupation".…

Notable flare-up of strikes & counter-strikes at #Syria/#Iraq border; between #US & #Iran proxies.

(? Timing ?
in the wake of #Saudi-Iranian rapprochement; & few days after serious steps of Saudi-#Assad normalization).…
#US airstrikes on facilities used by #Iran’s proxies came in retaliation to a drone strike in north-east #Syria that killed a US contractor & injured five American troops.
Strikes killed six fighters at an arms depot in the Harabesh neighbourhood in the city of #Deir_Ezzor.

“Diplomacy to de-escalate the crisis appeared immediately around the strikes. #Qatar reported a call between its foreign minister & Jake Sullivan, the #US national security adviser. Qatar’s foreign minister then spoke with the #Iranian FM Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.”

1- Iranian conservatives -specially Majlis- welcome resumption of diplomatic ties with Saudi Arabia.

Keyhan declares the deal has angered pro-West reformist factions (without providing evidence). It says both Tehran and Riyadh made concessions.
2- IRNA quotes Iran’s diplomatic mission to UN as admitting that Tehran has finalized purchase of Sukhoi fighter jets from #Russia. The mission says Iran’s intention to buy Russian jets dates back to late 1980s, reiterates 🇷🇺-🇮🇷 military cooperation not related to Ukraine war.
3- ⬆️ Despite the statement by Iran’s UN mission, some words suggest #Iran already received the Sukhoi-35s from Russia, AND Iranian pilots had training sessions during flight missions with Russian aircraft in #Syria.

**Those reports NOT VERIFIED**

Information for Libya! #Libya #Libyans

Hillary Clinton's leaked emails revealed that NATO eliminated Muammar Gaddafi in order to stop the formation of the United States of Africa.

Discount code at the bottom of the 🧵 😉
2/ If you need one book 📙 to understand the contemporary Gulf monarchies, this book aspires to be it. It takes you from the foundations of the modern monarchies through to today.
3/ It is the fruits of *many* years work. It bucks the recent trend of single country or single issue studies & looks across the six monarchies

Countries in the Global South are sensible and pragmatic, and act in the best interests of their people, unlike Western nations which, today, are acting on ideological impulses and often against the best interests of their people. A 🧵. (1/16)
That's why #China will support #Russia economically but not provide it with weapons. They know Russia can win this war on their own, so long as they are supported economically. China will continue to provide technological assistance/dual use items, such as semiconductors. (2/16)
They will buy huge quantities of pipeline gas, #LNG, and oil, because that is a win-win strategy. China needs to develop #Tibet and #Xinjiang and needs cheap energy; Russia needs money and goods that China can produce cheaply. This partnership has defeated US sanctions. (3/16)

🧵First #IDEX2023 coverage: Counter-drone manufacturers say they are increasingly miniaturizing & simplifying systems to meet rising demand for man-portable weapons, as recent conflicts have emphasized importance of mobile capabilities. But this is risky:…
2. Warren Brown, Fortem Technology VP of Marketing explains that the purpose & ways portable drones interceptors are used today have changed over the last decade "Historically, security detail & protection of major events, key infrastructure has been focused on fixed solutions."
3. More recent conflicts in the Middle East and #Ukraine have shifted the focus to ‘on-the-move’ systems that provide advanced radar detection capabilities, ease of deployment and portability, low overall cost of operation as well as low per-use cost,” he said.

"The second report, broadcast in mid-December, was about a leafleting campaign in #Paris accusing a former state prosecutor in #Qatar of corruption.” This is an important illustration of how the #influenceindustry works to coordinate across legacy/online media….

A dealer is struggling to sell this beautiful Benin Bronze leopard. He bought it for +500,000 Euros, 2014. He says it was taken by the British in 1897. We’ve heard a lot (!) on looted Bronzes in Western museums/restitution. A🧵on those in private hands. 1/10
Dealer says leopard (42cms long & tall) c 1600 AD ‘or earlier’ of ‘extraordinary rarity’ (although he knows a similar one in a different private collection). But he can’t sell it. He says collectors are ‘concerned this is an asset that is going to diminish’. Is this a trend? 2/10
Certainly @Sothebys @ChristiesInc, key over decades in dispersal of 1897 loot, now cautious of bad PR. Bronzes now emblematic of colonial loot. Once 1897 provenance brought cachet for collectors. Now brings stigma. Purchases legal but are they ethical? So prices go ⬇️ 3/10

How ISLAMIZATION occurs when
there are sufficient MUSLIMS in a country.... #Thread

When culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable'
Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under
the table. Here's how it works...👇🏻👇🏻 Image
📍 As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will
be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

(#UnitedStates --1.0%; #Australia --1.5%; #Canada --1.9%; #China --1%-2%; #Italy --1.5%;
#Norway --1.8%)
📍 At 2% and 3% Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

(#Denmark --2%;
#Germany --3.7%; #UnitedKingdom --2.7%; #Spain --4%; #Thailand --4.6%)
