As #Erdogan sent a flood of requests to #InterPol, Interpol not only removed the cases from its database but also suspended the authorization of the #Turkish Interpol section to enter new filings in the system. 😂
The $1 billion dam is a joint venture of South Korean, Thai and Lao firms. Construction began five years ago and was expected to come online this year, exporting 90% of the electricity generated to #Thailand.
An additional 5 billion tons of water has entered the Xe Pian River and officials are warning of a high likelihood of flooding in the lower reaches of the Mekong River. #Laos
#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
Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
“There is no rush” contradicts @SecPompeo two months ago who told @HouseForeign: “The model that we've laid forth is a rapid denuclearization, total and complete, that won't be extended over time...”
#Russia ambassador to #DPRK, Alexander Matsegora, says it would be logical to raise the question of easing sanctions against Pyongyang with the #UN Security Council, reports @rianru. "The positive change on the Korean peninsula is now obvious."
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.
#American#Jewish community doesn’t only conceal truth about #Gaza from itself-It lobbies US politicians to do it
The anesthetizing fiction: Yes-#Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005
Israel still controls Gaza in the way a guard controls a prison in which he never actually sets foot
First, #Israel declares parts of #Gaza off-limits to #Gazans. Israel has established —Access Restricted Zone—According to #UN: this restricted area comprise as much as 1/3 of Gaza’s best arable land. People who enter these zones can—& over the years have been—shot
Former #SouthAfrica, whose racism-discrimination-injustice-brutality–all rolled into an #Apartheid ideology-kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”-It succeeded for a while & ultimately crashed despite believing its power was indestructible. Exactly what #Netanyahu is doing
#Israel markets itself as an indispensable ally of the West; “only democracy” in #ME; defender of western values; bulwark against #Iran & #Islam-behaves with impunity & in defiance of all international laws as if the lifeline it enjoys from #America-renders it indestructible
When #US failed, it turned to threats. #Ecuador was the 1st to find itself in the cross hairs #Americans were blunt: If #Ecuador refused to drop the resolution-#US would unleash punishing trade measures & withdraw crucial military aid-The #Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced
The showdown over breast feeding was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from #USA.
Meetings held between #Russia and militants representative in #Daraa today where #Damascus central government's conditions were presented to avoid further military operation. Most anti-gov forces are happy to surrender. More (good) news in the next 24-48 hours.#Syria.
Soon "Twitter journalists", "Divan analysts" and other similar will be jobless since only two forces remain occupying Syrian territories in the north, mushroomed in the 7 years of war: #USA and #Turkey.
Those in south #Syria who have collaborated with #Israel, will find the doors closed and won't be adopted by Tel Aviv, similar to the South Lebanese Army in the year 2000 (Israel withdraw from Lebanon). No one wants losers. Proxies become a heavy burden.
If you dance to #TelAviv’s tune—&, sadly, #Trump does—then you believe that the only folk who support #Palestinians are either religion-hating, secular Lefties or radical #Islamists & #Hamas cheerleaders who hang out on the fringes of society. The reality is quite different.
The reality is different as was illustrated admirably at a remarkable gathering of mainstream #American#Christians in St Louis, #Missouri when the #Presbyterian Church overwhelmingly adopted a No. of robust resolutions in solidarity with #Palestine at its 223rd General Assembly
Why is it that #Israel, #US & #UK Govts don’t find the massacre of defenseless civilians, concentrated in a densely populated strip of land,by a hi-tech air force simply unacceptable? #Gaza Strip (139 sq. mi) Population 1.8 Million #LasVegas City (135.8 sq. mi) Population 623,747
Hamas rockets have killed 31 ppl since they started launching rockets in 2001.#Israel had already been bombing BEFORE ANY #Rocket was EVER fired into Israel:
From Sep to Dec 2000
*The Largest Single Cause of these Children's Deaths was Gunfire to the Head rememberthesechildren.org/remember2000.h…
are some of its members egregious human rights abusers? of course. it's comprised of member states of the UN, and it could do much better. until today it included the US, which separates children from parents at the border in violation of international law.
and yes, the Council condemns #Israel's behavior repeatedly, with multiple resolutions, upsetting many who may perceive this as disproportionate attention ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HR…
The #UnitedNations still has an unfulfilled promised to🇵🇸#Palestine, a commitment that was adopted 70 years ago at the General Assembly & has not materialized yet: the creation of its free & sovereign State.-🇧🇴#Bolivia's Amb. to the #UN, @SachaLlorenti
"70 yrs ago the #UN made 2 promises to the world
1st was to create a free & sovereign state of #Israel,the promise was fulfilled
2nd promise was to create a free independent & sovereign state of #Palestine
We're talking of more than 70yrs of an unfulfilled promise"#Bolivia UN Amb
"One of the parties has built checkpoints in occupied #Palestinian Territories,
an annexation wall along the #WestBank, illegal settlements,responsible for preventing the return of more than👉#6MILLION👈Palestinian refugees to their homes,..."@SachaLlorenti,#Bolivia's Amb. to #UN
Mr President @JustinTrudeau
We have witnessed your commitment to freedom & diversity. We have also followed with enthusiasm your activities, especially those that reflect your humanity, openness, support for civil rights & struggle against racism
Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic
Only 30 countries took part in the #Israeli Foreign Ministry’s gala celebrating the new #US embassy in #Jerusalem last week. Not coincidentally, Israel’s ties with most of them are based on arms sales used to carry out gross human rights violations
Following 1967 War, #Israel began a diplomatic campaign to convince countries to oppose resolutions demanding it to unilaterally withdraw from the occupied territories. Israel attempted to buy votes of "murderous dictatorships" & military juntas in exchange for weapons & training
2/21 Following Intl pressure to stop Settlements #Israel began new tactics,under the pretext of natural growth,they expanded & fattened,the existing settlements & connected them to each other & to Israel
Slicing the land blocking any possibility of a contiguous #Palestinian State
3/21 #Israeli Settlements along with their Road Network & Security Zones, occupy about 42% of Palestinian Land.
Roads btw Settlements can only be traveled by Settlers,the basic Human Right of Freedom of Movement within ones Home Country has been taken away from the #Palestinians
2-The story took off last night, but apparently has been going on for a couple of days. The group that called themselves ‘VOP Alpha Co - Team Pulaski’ (facebook.com/VOP-Alpha-Co-T…), a group of veterans with different backgrounds & experience, dedicated to help other veterans
3-...are the ones that brought all this out to light.
They have been live streaming videos from the area, and #Facebook keeps taking them down.
What happened? VOP was in the area looking for homeless vets they could help. #CEMEX
