@IranDisinfo @sepehrifar @hrw @JZarif Very interesting. So apparently the @StateDept's Global Engagement Center is running a disinformation campaign (sorry, "countering" disinformation) against, wait for it... human rights groups.
@IranDisinfo @sepehrifar @hrw @JZarif @StateDept First question--is this actually true? Can @statedeptspox spokesperson verify this and explain why the @StateDept is "engaging" in a propaganda campaign against Iranians who not only document HR abuses but also have faced a range of violations by autocratic Iranian government?
@IranDisinfo @sepehrifar @hrw @JZarif @StateDept @statedeptspox Second,@NegarMortazavi has an extensive rundown here of what should be a scandal in normal times, but there's one more point that needs to be made responding to this specific "disinformation" Twitter post

#Measles grand rounds this AM. Responding to an outbreak....@LBHealth #Sinai in conjunction with the Baltimore Health Department.
History: once ubiquitous and deadly disease nearly eliminated by the vaccine because #VaccinesWork but because of elimination pockets of people especially in Europe oppose vaccines.
Most US cases are imported. Most were unvaccinated- personal belief exemptions the reason.
Here is what to look for (for those of us who haven’t seen it yet):

#ISIS' theme of the current phase appears to be الثبات "steadfastness" (ie resilience). The term has appeared in its recent videos from Baghuz "Manifestations of Steadfastness" and its latest vid from #Sinai, which is titled "[holding firm to the] Pledge and Steadfastness".
In Dec IS weekly paper Naba and the group's supporters started promoting the slogan, "Holding Firm to the Pledge" ("holding firm" also translated as "steadfastness") after IS lost Hajin. The slogan or variations of it has appeared in various IS propaganda
It could be understood as a vow by IS militants and supporters that they will not abandon their pledge of loyalty to the group and will fight on, despite territorial losses

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:
#ICC4Israel #EthnicCleaning #Occupation #BDS #Gaza…👈
#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
“We must expel the Arabs and take their places…”~#DavidBenGurion
Born in 1886 as David Green (Gruen) in Plonsk, #Poland. He is considered one of the three founding figures of Zionism beside #ChaimWeizmann & #Herzl.

#Shavuot begins this Saturday night and celebrates the moment when the #Jewish people received the #Torah at Mt #Sinai. Today #God might have only had a 280-character Tweet, but thankfully we have threads! So here is an extended thought on the "Ten Commandments"...
What the Israelites heard at Sinai has become known as the “Ten Commandments.” But this description raises obvious problems.
First, neither the Torah nor Jewish tradition calls them the Ten Commandments. The Torah calls them aseret hadevarim (Ex. 34:28), and tradition terms them aseret hadibrot, meaning “the ten utterances.”

This thread is dedicated to the Fallen Hero, Khaled El Maghraby, may he RIP who was martyred on 7/7/2017 in the famous terrorist attack in #Sinai #Egypt called AlBarth detachment incident. It's a translation of a thread by @Zala6Egy & @Tahoun71 helped me with the military terms/1
Khaled El Maghraby, nicknamed "Tank" or "Dababa" in Arabic was a member of the 83rd battalion responsible for securing & support of posts & in particular 103rd Battalion. The 103rd battalion was responsible for securing the AlBarth troop gathering detachment./2
Khaled or Tank/ Dababa was on leave & was notified that he will be moved to Alexandria to serve there. He went back to his battalion to say goodbye to his friends & collect his belongings in #Sinai before the move to Alexandria.
