Background on Why it is Important whether Alawis are regarded as Muslims or not

Brief Thread below linking the leadership of #Syria ‘s modern history to Islam starting with the country’s first constitution in 1920

====>
2-Following the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Emir Faisal pushed locals to form the constitution of the “Arab Kingdom of #Syria “ . This was the first time the word Arab was inserted in the name of a any governing body in the region (yes, Arab nationalism predates Baath) ==>
3- #Syria ‘s first constitution (drafted in 1920) had 148 articles. Article number 1 states :

“Government of the Arab Kingdom of Syria is civilian parliamentary kingdom, with its capital in Damascus and the religious faith of its king is Islam”

1/ It's all scaremongering isn't it about #brexit and #drugs? Stockpiling, price hikes, and, as @MattHancock warns, dead patients. Well, here's the lowdown and it's not pretty. With or without #softbrexit.

2/ Patients with long-term conditions such as #diabetes, #asthma or #schizophrenia, #blood pressure, #heart problems or #cancer down to daily medicines for #rashes and skin problems, take for granted that they will be able to get their medicines when they need them.
3/ According the UK's Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

73 per cent of pharmaceutical imports in the UK come from the EU. This equates to around 37 million packets of medicines every month from the EU worth £18.3 billion.

1/ Here it is, the culmination of many hours of research - our published paper describing a genetic analysis of depression using data from over 2 million people.
nature.com/articles/s4159…
2/ We firstly analysed DNA data from 800,000 people from @uk_biobank, @23andMeResearch and @PGCgenetics and identified 102 independent variants associated with #depression.
3/ In an independent replication dataset of 1.3 million people, all of the 102 depression variants had an effect in the same direction, 87 were significant after applying Bonferroni correction and 56 passed the threshold for genome-wide significance.

I have spent the last few years trying to rethink #mhealth. As we work to lessen #stigma and fear I ask everyone to keep an open mind, give feedback, and join me as I delve into some unique hypotheses. 1/
This started with my sphere of mental health. (Pinned) . I don’t believe true “normal” exists and feel everyone has issues that fit within the sphere. A dx comes because of observations that are inherently flawed & variable due to relative perceptions. 2/
I use the word “flawed” because none of us can read minds, therefore, there is no objective way to truly know exactly what someone is going through or how extreme their suffering is. This is one reasons #mhealth pros have such a difficult job. 3/

2.(broke programming) and started remembering her children and a roommate she was staying with heard her talking about children a tracked down my 16yr old brother, who left in the middle of the night to get her.. fyi..she was still seeing MI Dr's at the base..
@POTUS @GenFlynn
They never contacted her immediate family and we never got answers as to why she wound up in GA, not even knowing who she was really.. when she was last at a VA hospital fresh out of boot camp (when the rape occurred) in SC

"Can #African clinics help decode #schizophrenia and #bipolar disorder by collecting #DNA from thousands of patients?"

Sounds like a job for Wojcicki sister #3, Janet, #Fulbright scholar. They were looking for ways to ~diversify~ their biobank! 🙄

Those who claim that Assad released Islamists from prison to taint the uprising forget that the majority of those in Syrian prisons are Islamists. Opposition groups negotiating with the State always demanded the release of prisoners as a precondition for helping "calm the street"
Sheikh Sayasneh of Omari Mosque in Daraa saw Assad for three hours in April 2011. His number one demand was the release of prisoners. After the meeting, the Sheikh claimed that Assad promised him to do so to help “calm the streets”
3-People like Zahran Alloush were imprisoned for 5-7 years just for preaching and gun possession. Those sentences were thought by many to be too harsh.. This was made worse by fact that Intel agencies often asked judges to extend sentences of Islamists after they had served
