1/n 2 days ago as I ws returning home frm my gym I spotted a flag with blue red & white. FRANCE I thot! Hw did I miss 1 of d most powerful flags in d world--RUSSIA? #Putin is in UAE today!Welcome to post-American middle east! 😊👍 My thread on middle east as I understand it
This is Putin’s first visit to UAE in last 12yre, his last official visit happened in 2007. On 14th Oct, he ws in Saudi Arabia.Its the impeccable timing of his visit to GCC that surprises me. Russia thawing its relations with American allies is not a recent phenomenon. 2/n
3/n Russia is right now part of #OPEC as an observer. Since 2015 it hs along with other oil producing countries played a significant role in controlling the oil prices. Bt then its not only abt oil. Russia, Saudi arabia and UAE now hv "space-ties" too.

#Somalia: #Jubaland: now that the formalities are over. The reality kicks in, the truth is. There is no alternative to a compromise and a negotiated settlement between @TheVillaSomalia @SomaliPM and Jubbaland leader Ahmed Madobe.
Defeating each other is a fools errand.@UNSomalia
I say this as one of the most vocal critics of Ahmed Madobe since first election as shown in this screen shot and this op-Ed in @dailynation back in 2012 nation.co.ke/oped/opinion/K…
The reality on the ground is. Ahmed Madobe has solidified his Ogaden base and have strong strategic depth both in #Kenya and #Ethiopia. Two crucial neighbors whose interests in Somalia can not be ignored. The false belief that @PMEthiopia will help @TheVillaSomalia get rid of

A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

Why aren't Americans taking about the foreign influence in the US government that continues to send our men and woman to fight immoral wars?

#Trump when he campaigned for president, before he decided to let Adelson fund his campain!

Adelson was one of the biggest donors to Trumps presidential campain. Adelsons company saved 670 million dollars from the massive republican tax break. Adelson did not support the Iran deal & wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

Adelson has a direct line to #potus!

Adelson has private in-person meetings & phone conversations about once a month with #Trump!

Adelson used his access to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and cut aid to Palestinians.

Protests start again in #Egypt.

The trigger this time is a strange figure of M. Ali, an actor and owner of a construction company.

He worked for the army & started sharing stories of Sisi's corruption. 👇🏿

The Arab Spring is alive.

middleeasteye.net/news/mohamed-a…
For weeks, Mohamed Ali shared stories about the mansions he built for President Sisi and explained how the army's corruption works.

#Egypt's army controls much of the country's economy including businesses in construction farming, fishing, bakeries, livestock ...!

#ارحل_يا_سيسي
Mohamed Ali's message resonated with the public because of the of the corruption and terrible state of the economy.

For at least a week the interior ministry was on high alert.

Mohamed Ali called for protest Friday to break the fear barrier.

#BREAKING head of #Yemen's Ansarallah (Houthi) Politburo: We decided to stop all types of attacks, including drones, on Saudi Arabia and we expect from them a similar move
This comes few hours after #Hezbollah leader #Nasrallah adressed #Saudi and #UAE leaders saying that the minimal cost to defend their countries is to stop the war on #Yemen
This is not a message to the #US rather to #SaudiArabia, in accordance leader of Kataeb Sayyed AlShuhada in #Iraq Abo Alaa AlWalaei tweeted saying that the #US presence in #Iraq is completely in the fire range

#Yemen Houthi are saying "we attacked Aramco and we shall attack more targets". The possibility #US and #SaudiArabia have is to stop #Iran by putting an end to the genocidal war on #Yemen.

Otherwise, keep the war ongoing and fall into Iran's hands.

The #US policy is laughable.
#Yemen is capable of sending drones & missiles against #SaudiArabia and the #UAE if needed.

Houthis are increasing their military capabilities and #Iran is jumping in to support Yemen to stand to Saudi war.

Houthi have access to satellite facilities and GPS on drones & missiles
Houthis have new kind of third generation drones and missiles. Houthis #Yemen are forcing on #SaudiArabia new Rules of Engagement. If #US and #SaudiArabia would like to see #Yemen out of the "Axis of the Resistance", the solution is simple: Stop the war. Otherwise suffer from it

The latest from @SkyNews in 🇸🇦 Saudi Arabia after attack on 2 huge oil facilities:
📍@SecPompeo arrives later
📍It’s expected he‘ll present new evidence implicating Iran
📍🇸🇦 Defence Ministry preparing to release evidence implicating Iran - significant shift in strategy [Thread]
🔴 Breaking:
📍We’re told @modgovksa will present material evidence including weapons, proving Iranian involvement
📍If 🇸🇦 does explicitly name Iran, it would would represent shift by Gulf Arab states who’ve been reluctant to name #Iran for any attacks like those on tankers /2
📍Gulf states naturally anxious that they would be on frontline of any military escalation
📍France to send investigators to help determine who was responsible
📍@EmmanuelMacron was key in trying to bring the Iranians & US to the negotiating table. /3

The #Trump admin has totally skewered #Iran policy. Maximum pressure has lacked *any* substantive strategy or realistic end-game.

Now we lack allies & credibility.

#Iran's hardliners are laughing - they calculated they could hit #Saudi with a high probability of impunity.
Following #Iran's attack on @Saudi_Aramco, @stevenacook writes:

- "Events in the Persian Gulf have demonstrated to #Iran’s leaders that they can escalate with impunity... If #Trump does not respond militarily, the U.S. should just pack up and go home."

foreignpolicy.com/2019/09/17/thi…
@Saudi_Aramco @stevenacook Few if any people like the prospect of *any* military action, but just take stock of what took place the other day in #Saudi.

If the U.S. fails to respond here, we invite more malign acts.

As one colleague just said to me: it'd be *THE* inflection point for U.S in #MiddleEast.

A new bombshell awaiting #Egypt:
The New Kingdom of Yellow Mountain @sultan1976m
A pocket of land between Egypt and Sudan, that both countries are not interested in it, has now announced that it is a new kingdom 1/
A women with Lebanese roots called Nadra Nasif has formally announced that she is the PM of the new Kingdom of Yellow Mountain.
Other reports suggested that this Saudi guy is the “king”
#نادره_نصيف
#مملكة_الجبل_الأصفر
The new “kingdom” claims it has a humanitarian mission to offer a state to refugees and immigrants.
But this is clearly nonsense. Its existence is based on exploiting the dispute between Egypt and Sudan on anothee regions Halayeb and Shalatiem 3/

Stephan Roh—the lawyer for Joseph Mifsud, a central figure of the #MuellerInvestigation—denied a slew of alleged connections to Russia, though has acknowledged some.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/mifsuds-lawyer…
In April 2016, #Mifsud allegedly told a Trump campaign aide that #Russians had “thousands of emails” of #HillaryClinton.

This info was ultimately used by the #FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation that involved extensive #Spying on Trump campaign staff.
#Mueller took over the probe in 2017 and after 22 months concluded that the investigation didn’t establish that President #DonaldTrump or anybody from his team conspired or coordinated with #Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.
