Horrific. A gunman wearing military-style clothing and body armor kills at least 10 people at a supermarket in #Buffalo, #NewYork#racism, misogyny, lax regulations and #gunviolence are interlinked. US policymakers are equally responsible! #endgunviolence…
I live in upstate NY and visit the local #Topssupermarket — I have seen young men dressed as military personnel. The #Buffalo #shooting is just a chilling reminder that U.S. civilians own 400 million #guns —almost half of civilian held firearms globally.
120+ guns/ 100 residents
In 2015 @MotherJones published a special investigation detailing the cost of #gunviolence:$229 billion a year (2012 data). $8.6 billion in direct spending—emergency/medical care & $221 billion in “indirect” costs, quality of life of victims.

If you’re concerned about Roe vs. Wade, abortion and — indeed — life:

I wrote about my childhood with Dr. Tiller, victim of a “pro-life” murder, during the Abortion Wars.

Terrorism worked in the 1990s, and that’s why Roe is now at SCOTUS. Here’s how:…
When they speak of murder, remember Dr. George Tiller.

When they claim “pro-life,” remember the Nuremberg Files.

.@DrSJaishankar: Three things keep me up at night — the shocks that the international order is experiencing, particularly in the past two years—the #COVID19 pandemic, #Afghanistan & #Ukraine, & the friction between the #West & #Russia, the #USA and #China

#Raisina2022 @MEAIndia
.@DrSJaishankar: You need to develop an operational matrix to respond to a changing world. In our case, especially since 2014-15, we have had greater clarity on how we engage the world—concentric circles, neighbourhood first, but also a conscious policy engaging the major powers.

#Israel restricts access to #Christians & #Muslims worshipers: on Al-Aqsa daily but also to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, within the walls of the Old City of #Jerusalem, & attacked worshipers with weapons. Israel claims to be "democratic". @Pontifex
#Disgusting #Terrorism
#Israel doesn't care about the significance of Al-Aqsa and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, named after the resurrection of Jesus, the holiest and most important church in the Christian world, according to Christian beliefs, contains the place where Jesus was buried.
Masjid Al-Aqsa is located in the Old City of Jerusalem in #Palestine. Its name translates as ‘the Farthest Mosque’ and includes the Dome of the Rock, 17 gates and 4 minarets, usually referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif, which means ‘the Noble Sanctuary’.

As the world focuses on Russia and Ukraine, the New Terror Wave against the U.S. is looming.

#IRGC and #MOIS with their #terrorist proxy groups[Global Terrorism Network] are planing , around the clock. #Iran's regime has been steadily expanding its global network of terror.
#Terrorism is indispensable to the Iranian regime’s foreign policy and diplomacy and for more than 43 years, this #mullah's regime is using this as the main tool against its opponents abroad, as well as against other countries for blackmailing.
#Iran #IRGCIsTerrorist
Iran’s regional strategy is sophisticated, intricate, and nimble.
Whereas #Iran’s primary method of operations in the region is to support #Terrorism.

analyzing Iran’s efforts as supporting terrorism, is necessary to understand the real face of #mullah's regime. @ODNIgov

The CDC has reversed itself and now recommends early treatment for Covid. The DHS memo of Feb. 7th seems to suggest those who argued for the value of early treatment before CDC’s acknowledgment—though factually correct—have spread “malinformation”, a kind of terrorism.

Communiqué to the Sanctions Panel of Experts on #Yemen:
The #UAE, which implements Resolution 2216 by proxy, which includes preventing the arrival of weapons in Yemen, is withdrawing Chinese guns from Yemen and smuggling them to the so-called “Believing Youth Organization
” banned in Somalia, and if the smuggling boats are arrested at sea, the coalition accuses Iran of smuggling these weapons to #Yemen.

The #UAE is a rogue state against international resolutions and threatens international peace and security. Its role was not limited to
fueling armed conflicts in #Yemen and #Somalia, but also established a military base in Eritrea, thus violating the arms embargo imposed on #Eritrea before the embargo was lifted in 2018.
How is it right for this state that supports #terrorism to rely on UN Resolution 2216

Today’s the official release of my book “Imagining Far-right #Terrorism” (FRT). It explores why Western European societies struggle to think of far-right and racist violence as terrorism. A (longish) 🧵 1/…
The book builds on the work that has been done on far-right violence & #terrorism in Political Science and IR over the past few decades (esp since the 2010s). However, I approach the topic very much as a humanities scholar fascinated by how #narrative theory and analysis 2/
can teach us about the making of our world(s). My main inspiration comes from two scholars in anthropology and sociology whose way of thinking and writing I have long admired: Arjun Appadurai and Ken Plummer. 3/

So you accidentally participated in domestic terrorism

#OccupyOttawa #Coutts #freedomconvoy #FluTruxKlan 🤦🏼‍♀️
The fringe conspiracy theories are spinning about the gofundme being paused for violating terms and service, and now they’re getting refunds. Of course they think it’s a deep state plot, not because they got brainwashed by antivax propaganda and funded domestic terrorism #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
And yes, this is domestic terrorism now what’s happening in #OccupyOttawa and #CouttsCrisis blockade. This was never about mandates or freedom it was about an anti science alt right political movement. The sooner you realize this is not a peaceful protest, the better. ImageImageImage

POLITICO: Sen Chuck Grassley's ex-staffers wrote to DOJ regarding its letter of determination that Qatar-based Al Jazeera’s digital news outlet AJ+ is required to register as a foreign agent.…
DOJ left unanswered three follow-up letters regarding this issue. Despite the initial letter of determination, no action has been taken to enforce AJ+ requirement to be designated under FARA. So far, Al Jazeera manages to get away with not following the #Trump admin's findings.
It appears that the #Biden staffers have "pocket vetoed" the issue of AJ+, despite findings comparing it to Chinese, Russian, and other propaganda outlets that had been forced to comply with the respective recommendations. #Biden's comments to #Qatar's Emim Tamim show why.

WWII vet Louis Allen was murdered #tdih 1964. Why?

Allen was willing to testify about murder he had witnessed of African American @NAACP member & SNCC supporter Herbert Lee by a white state legislator.

FBI refused protection. #TeachVotingRights 1/6…
Allen knew his life was in danger if he stayed in Amite County, Miss. but he had to care for his elderly mother.

When his mother passed away, Allen made plans to move to Milwaukee. (Great Migration continues.)

The night before Allen was to leave, he was killed. #terrorism 2/6
Traditional Civil Rights Movement narratives ignore that fight for civil, voting, and human rights was often met with terrorist violence, as exemplified by story of Louis Allen and countless others. #TeachOutsideTextbook 3/6

Thread: How FM Bourita's policies betrayed Moroccan Sahara security?
1. In my previous thread, I explained how Jamal Benomar, notorious for his pro-#Houthi positions & an agent of #Qatar, benefited from FM Bourita's willingness to give him diplomatic cover & evaded US justice.
2. In public discourse, FM Bourita positions himself as a tough critic of #Iran, with which #MOrocco cut relations in 2018, several months before Benomar was hired by Morocco's mission to the UN, due to #Iran's funding, arming & training of the #Polisario terrorists.
3. Specifically #Iran used an #IRGC operative who had a diplomatic cover with the Algiers embassy to facilitate #Iran proxy #Hezbullah's transfer of weapons and contacts with #Polisario, including training & tunnel building joint ops.

Thread: #Qatar's Web of #Corruption & Intrigue Implicates #Morocco's FM Nasser Bourita

1. In previous threads, I explained how Kushner's group along with assorted #Moroccan cronies has undermined #AbrahamAccords due to #Qatar backing & infiltration.
2. But the story is much worse than meets the eye. Evidence has emerged connecting some affiliates of the Kushner group with the #Moroccan traitor Jamal Ben Omar, who was hired by #Qatar to recruit American conservative Jewish agents of influence.
3. Jamal Benomar eventually got busted not only for outright #espionage on behalf of #Qatar but for hiring former US intelligence officer to hack & disseminate private information of critics, including, specifically Elliott Broidy, who is now suing #Qatar.

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.

#tdih 1966: Vernon Dahmer killed when home (with family inside) was firebombed by KKK.

Day before he'd offered to pay poll tax for anyone who could not afford to register to vote. #Terrorism (Year AFTER '65 VRA, still poll tax in local Miss. elections.)…
Four of Dahmer's sons served in U.S. military to "defend democracy," only to have their father murdered in fight for right to vote in US. Came home for funeral. Dahmer active in @NAACP & ally of SNCC.

📷 in tweet ⬆️ by Chris McNair (Denise McNair's father) via @JMitchellNews.
"For Mr. Dahmer, voting was only way to move from second class to full citizenship. [As a teenager], I was spellbound as [he talked] about a subject that was so verboten that one could be killed for it." -- SNCC veteran @JoyceLadner9
