Why are many, if not the majority, of #deathpenalty cases amounting to arbitrary executions, whether carried out in #Iran, #SaudiArabia the #UnitedStates or elsewhere? This is a long thread providing some explanations.
International law imposes severe restrictions on the use of death penalty and demands strict safeguards. Non-compliance with these restrictions and safeguards leads to arbitrary and thus unlawful deprivation of life.
The imposition of #deathpenalty in a manner that is contrary to the International Covenant on Civil or Political Rights (e.g. fair trial, prohibition against torture, prohibition against discrimination, etc.) would automatically translate into the execution being deemed arbitrary

1/ UPDATE: 2 weeks ago we wrote that "hundreds if not thousands" of migrants from #Ethiopia were trapped horrific prisons in #SaudiArabia.

Now new information suggests that this was just the tip of the iceberg.

2/ Abdo Yassin, Ethiopia’s Consul in Jeddah, said that there are dozens of prisons with Ethiopians in them.

He said at just one centre at Al Shumasi, near Mecca, there are about 16,000 Ethiopian migrants kept in prison and holding cells. (Credit: EBC News)
3/ Last week, the Ethiopian government made a show of repatriating almost 150 women and children from Saudi Arabia, after we found that officials tried to silence the migrants, most probably to avoid a diplomatic fall out with a major investor.

On the #Trump-mediated normalization between #Bahrain & #Israel keep in mind that this is not unexpected or historic per se, but because there might be a #SaudiArabia angle. Me & @h_lovatt wrote it for @ECFRMena last month…
In fact, there was much to say about #Bahrain and #Israel in my June article for @ispionline, when #annexation was possibly imminent. Find the article here:…

🛑Piece of #Turkey 🇹🇷Terrorism🛑

If you think Turkish goverment relations with Terrorist organizations are limited to #ISIS, you are totally wrong!!!

Let me introduce to you in this thread
@hamzatumeniok, or
Özel Kuvvetler (Special Forces)
Turkey has developed its terrorist plans and projects in order to move from cooperation with terrorist organizations such as ISIS to establish and adopt terrorist organizations, set its policies and plans, and appoint its officials

Keep an eye on the guy in the red circle ⭕️👇
One of the most prominent terrorist criminal projects of the Turkish government is the establishment of Hamza forces in the region of Aleppo bordering Turkey, then depicting it as a Syrian opposition division aiming only to fight the Assad government in Syria & protect Syrians!

I was invited by #Women20 #W20 #SaudiArabia (an official #G20 engagement group) to moderate its summit in October. I have declined as I stand in solidarity with women's rights defenders in Saudi Arabia & beyond, including #LoujainAlhathloul, who remains in prison in the country.
Per her sister @LinaAlhathloul, from Aug. 31:

"My parents visited Loujain today. She was on a hunger strike for 6 days after acknowledging some detainees are allowed to call and not her. Her health was deteriorating extremely during her hunger strike."

#Breaking Report: “Mob Boss in #Argentina Holds A Key to Russian Ambassador #Karlov’s Assassination in #Turkey” This bombshell case is completely blacked out by #MSM . Watch & Share Full Exclusive Report Open-to-All:
My followers in #Argentina: disseminate this report and make noise- #Kurtulus is a target of assassination while in jail in Argentina. Let’s not make it easy for them to send this explosive case into a #Blackhole😉
The real question is: Does #Putin really want to know the real story/case in Russia Ambassador #Karlov assassination? For some reason #Russia’s own investigation into this blatant assassination was dropped. Will #Russians pressure their Gov now- with this expose? Image

#France #Lebanon
French President @EmmanuelMacron's visit to Lebanon on the 1st of September was scheduled before the harbour's explosion. France did not present a "roadmap" to Lebanon because it has limited influence over the Lebanese politicians +
It is correct to say that #France managed to slow down the #US agressive approach toward #Lebanon but it is wrong to say that Paris and Washington agreed and have the same view on how to approach Lebanon.
The differences are: +
#France supports the participation of #Hezbollah in the future government. The French are more clever than the current US administration even if both support #Israel at the end of the day. Macron informed Hezbollah about his support to see the group in the new government +

#Pakiatan #SaudiArabia #Islamabad #Riyadh #China

Pakistan – Ties with Saudi Arabia are on a historically low ebb. Saudi Arabia announced a $6.2 billion US loan package for cash-strapped Pakistan in November 2018.
The plan included a total of $3 billion in loans, and a $3.2 billion oil credit facility. But then, Riyad demanded the return of the $3 billion loan and refused to sell oil on deferred payment to Islamabad.
Pakistan, in response, immediately returned to the Saudis $1 billion, signaling a distance from Riyadh. Apparently, the differences between the two countries emerged after Saudi Arabia sided with India in recent tensions over Kashmir.

#Thread |📺 @ShireenMazari1: #Pakistan's policy bureaucracy and slow diplomacy failed Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI's robust #Kashmir lobbying after 5 Aug. 2019.

I was honored to host her on Sat at @KashmirLobby event. I will show some clips here, then add my analysis
📺@ShireenMazari1: Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI singlehandedly changed #Pakistan's narrative on #Kashmir following India's 5 Aug 2019 actions (when he compared Kashmiri situation to the #Holocaust). But @ForeignOfficePk failed to pick up on that.

📺@ShireenMazari1: Our diplomacy on #Kashmir does not go beyond statements of moral, political & diplomatic support. No work on promoting Kashmiri culture of resistance which is an important part of all resistance movements.

Who is #IRGC and what is it's mission?
In this video, we want to take a look at some terrorist activities of #IRGC in the world.
#IRGCTerrorWithoutBorders #NoImpunity4Mullahs #Iran @usadarfarsi @StateDept @statedeptspox @SecPompeo @realDonaldTrump @USUN @GermanyDiplo
Below is the history of IRGC.
#IRGC created by #Khomeini in 1979 is an #Iranian government agency tasked with defending the regime against internal and external threats. Espousing a radical ideology and a paranoid worldview.
#IRGCTerrorWithoutBorders #NoImpunity4Mullahs #Iran
#IRGC uses secret #police methods against its opponents within #Iran, and terrorist tactics against its enemies abroad.
The IRGC creates, trains, funds, arms, and deploys forces with thousands of fighters beyond Iran’s borders.

The best way to defeat #Hezbollah was to confront on various platforms. All failed but one remained:

Destroying his main ally: @General_Aoun and his son-in-law @Gebran_Bassil.

Hezbollah has the capacity to hold to its ground but Christians in #Lebanon are much more fragile +
The alliance between #Shia and #Christian in #Lebanon paved the road for a general reconciliation (after the 1975 civil war), standing robustly against the Shia-Sunni sectarian war encouraged and financed byt #SaudiArabia and #Israel to the benefit of #Israel in #Syria & #Iraq +
Nevertheless, the #SaudiArabia - #US alliance to bring the Middle East to a peace deal with #Israel is based on smashing the cause of #Palestine and remove all obstacles, i.e. the "Axis of the Resistance".+

#SaudiArabia FM Prince Faisal bin Farhan has been quite busy these days! Today in #Italy, right after #Cyprus and, before, a North Africa tour. On geopolitics, Riyadh and Rome have two major things to talk about: #Libya and #EastMed. Both have to do with #Turkey.
#Italy and #SaudiArabia do not traditionally have an in-depth, serious geopolitical engagement. This is for many reasons, many of which are common to other continental #Europe-an countries, excluding #France. I have analysed those in my @ECFRMena paper:…

#BillClinton supported #AlQaeda in #Bosnia and #Kosovo in the 1990s as confirmed by #RPC Congressional documents;  #HillaryClinton has supported #AlQaeda and the #IslamicState (ISIS-Daesh) in #Syria.
This article was first published in 2002.…
Known and documented, since the #SovietAfghanWar, recruiting #Mujahideen (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on #Washington’s behest has become an integral part of #US foreign policy.
A 1997 Congressional document by the #RPC, while intent upon smearing President #BillClinton, nonetheless sheds light on the Clinton administration’s insidious role in recruiting and training jihadist mercenaries with a view to transforming #Bosnia into  a “Militant Islamic Base”

🎙️New @arabdigest podcast: I discuss w/@BillLaw49 about how a #US retrenchment from the #MENA triggered a competition between #Russia #China #Turkey #Iran #UAE & #SaudiArabia to occupy vacuum and implications for #UK and #Europe. Highlights:
Yes I did really say "sometimes the #MENA region today seems like the Far West w/the Sheriff (#US) taking a nap". The multipolar competition deepened & entrenched conflicts in #Yemn, #Libya, #Syria and is extending towards the #HornofAfrica and #EastMed…
While I recognize #Europe is not really a security/geopolitical player today, I also believe there is a space if Europeans can do serious diplomacy. Other players now how to fight not really how to solve conflicts...…

Pakistan's international positioning has improved multi-folds in the last 2 years under PM @ImranKhanPTI's leadership.

This was a much-needed step to improve peace and prosperity in the area, but like everything this govt. has done, this too did not come easy. (1/n)
2) The govt. inherited the current account deficit of $20B which has been reduced to $3B. The borrowing from the State Bank stood at PKR 6T when @PTIofficial came to power, but it has been brought down to ZERO.


Through carefully curated international relations.
3) The first challenge was inflation. @StateBank_Pak warned it could double & go up to 7.5%. Where PM @ImranKhanPTI avoided going to the @IMFNews, he still wanted to reduce the size of any bailout by appealing to allies for bilateral financial support & saving us from bankruptcy.
