THREAD on #Russia/n Orthodox Church (ROC) breaking off “eucharistic communion" w/ #Constantinople Patriarchate.
1.CAVEAT: I don’t claim to be an expert in church relations but being Orthodox Christian & working on #Russia-related politics/policies I feel entitled to share few of my own observations esp in the face of mounting ignorance or propaganda from some of the usual "Russia watchers"
2. Within next days you will hear 3 dominating narratives on what came to be called "the new schism":
A.Patriarch Kirill is KGB (somewhat true).
B. ROC is a tool of #Kremlin (true).
C. Conflict emerged as aftermath of “#Russia trying to make #Ukraine submissive” (yes & no)

Politicians aren't leaders or rulers. They're puppets on strings. They have been ever since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which was made invalid a few decades after it was signed. The United States OF America ceased to exist. The United States FOR America alive.
The Crown of England financed both sides of the Revolutionary war. When all said and done, threatened the newly formed United States OF America to a new war, which USofA couldn't afford. To avoid such war, a treaty was signed instead. After that, USofA became USforA. #US Corp.
Everything within United States FOR America is for sale. The #FederalReserve Bank was implemented, which deals in #debt based fake money, as currency, US has been bankrupted. It went into bankruptcy and NEVER came out it. Unfortunately, fact. #Enslavement hidden behind scenes.

It is all well & good that companies & lobbyists are reassessing #Saudi Arabia over reported murder of #JamalKhashogg. BUT! Where the fuck have all these people and firms been for decades? The violations of the #Saudi monarchy have never been a secret. nyti.ms/2CcsOjL
Glad to see people pay attention, finally, and I wish it hadn’t been over such a gruesome crime. I wish people and firms had started boycotting #Saudi royal family over its gender apartheid that affects all women there. Or the #Yemen war. Or jails full of activists. Or. And. Or.
This was my first oped about #Saudi Arabia for a US newspaper - ironically enough, The Washington Post. Fifteen schoolgirls had died in a fire because religious police wouldn’t let them out because the girls weren’t wearing a cloak and a headscarf washingtonpost.com/archive/opinio…

Who is schizophrenic Maram Susli @partisangirl, Mimi Al-Laham, Syriangirl etc? She's Sunni NAZI SSNP who spreads lies, disinformation and conspiracy. Her ideology is that #Jordan #Lebanon #Cyprus #Iraq #Palestine are part of #Syria. A Syria which till 1946 NEVER existed!

Before I begin exposing NAZI SSNP monster @partisangirl, some of @partisangirl's rich vocabulary which racist #AltRight voter @JapigioPeuceta & @DavidDuke defends!
In reality it is terrorist and NAZI #AltRight @partisangirl who is a HUGE LIAR & conspiracy theorist! @FBI @CIA

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

I have barely slept.I have been unable to stop thinking about #JamalKhashoggi. I knew him from when we both were columnists for #Saudi-owned Asharq al-Awsat b4 I was banned.We met just once, I think. But reports yest of his killing came same day as #Kavanaugh & my worlds collided
Trump has emboldened so many dictators,esp Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.With so much attention been sucked up by US,the killing of Jamal,who wasn’t an esp outspoken critic,is sure to embolden regimes further & signal to dissidents & opponents that their harm will go unnoticed
To think that you could go to your country’s consulate to get paperwork for an upcoming wedding and be killed and dismembered because of your writing is horrific. It’s evil. And to know that the regime responsible for that has a best friend in the most powerful country in earth!

The flow of russian disinformation, and how russian cyber warfare works:

GRU hacks, russian media writes about it, russian bots take to twitter.

The bots I am looking at tweeted about "Cyber Berkut".

ncsc.gov.uk/news/reckless-…
GCHQ attributes Cyber Berkut to GRU.

In just what happened to be an odd coincidence I happened to be looking at russian bots when @rob_barry did a thread about "CyberCaliphate"
At some point in march 2014 after the russian invasion of crimea GRU setup Cyber Berkut and started attacking various Ukrainian infrastructure and websites.

in #Iraq, for the first time since 2003, the #Shia #Sunni #Kurds and #Turkmen were all divided this time prior to the selection of the Speaker, the President and the Prime Minister.
#USA pushed for its own candidate/coalition (Moqtada-Abadi).

#Iran pushed for the unity of all coalitions, Shia, Sunni and Kurds, in an attempted to unite all & produce leaders accepted by all. Iran also worked to bring down the US candidate/coalition.

The world (including Iraq) didn't realise that "no larger coalition has been nominated".

The reason is simple: Iran wanted to save the face and honor of Moqtada, he who joined a lost coalition, so #Iran Soleimani cam "bring him back" to where he belongs

Listen 👂 please:
#Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace.
#Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower
@PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015

#Israel has nothing to offer to #Russia and #Moscow has nothing to ask from #TelAviv. Airspace is closed, period.

So Israel will go and cry on Uncle Sam's shoulder: the magnificent @realDonaldTrump #USA

It is up to @PutinRF_Eng to rebuff #USA and #Israel and hold his ground firmly. I am aware of US lobby within #Russia but it is time to show the world that hegemony is over

#Moscow can ask for itself, for #Syria & substantial compensation for Russian families.

Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

#BreakingNews:

#Syria #Idlib postponed until 15 of #Decembre to start with, with a 15km buffer zone and an engagement of #Turkey to disarm Nusra ( or merge it) and neutralise all other jihadists.
#Moscow has accepted to give #Ankara more time (for after the US sanctions really) to sort out #Idlib and the jihadists in the city, defusing the #US intention to bomb #Syria.

So: no job for warmongers for the next couple of months. Find another war.
#turkey wants the #idlib case to be postponed until the constitutional changes and the peace process to kickoff in #Geneva: more time for Idlib and Turkey to sort out its affairs with Syrian proxies.

All here in details:

This attack was unprecedented & highly significant. Never ever #Israel went as far.

The message Israel is sending is strategic & a game changer.

Will #Iran accept, abide by it, or respond?

Syria: Israel launched a missile attack on #Damascus airport abcn.ws/2NJc0ae
I strongly believe #Israel, via #US media, will release indirect information and details about it in the coming days. We see.

#Israel attacked one specific target on the runway, sending a message to Iran to refrain from delivering #Syria what #Russia didn't.

Was told that "attack won't change Iran's intention to provide #Damascus with the equivalent of the S-300, as promised."

#US Senator Dick Black speaking to reporters at a #SAA position in #Aleppo: "Beyond this dividing line is Al Qaeda. They keep changing names, but it is Al Qaeda, the same group that did 9/11." He also proceeds to praise the Syrian soldier who is observing the enemy.
Senator Black on #HTS terrorists: "This is their final stand here in Idlib province. This is a very good time for us, for anyone who cares about terrorism. We have been fighting the War on Terror for 17 years with nothing to show, but the Syrian army has them cornered."
"The Syrian army cares very much about casualties, considering that what we have here is urban combat, a very brutal type of combat."

Senator Richard Black, ladies and gentlemen.

#Lavrov now: When we intervened in #Syria in Sep'15 #ISIS wad at the gates of #Damascus. Not a single power that are today raising voices about humanity, rights, etc moved their finger to prevent #Daesh from almost capturing the city & making it the capital of their caliphate
#Lavrov on @realDonaldTrump tweet on #Idlib: #Trump's right-we need to avoid a humanitarian crisis there. That's what we always try to do w/ humanitarian corridors & other coverups for civilians unlike Americans,say,in #Raqqa who just ironed the city. Now they want to cover Nusra

#Iraq parliament may fail to decide today the largest coalition. The difference is significant:
1. Abadi and Moqtada will present a list including heads of groups and the total of MPs included
2. Ameri & Maliki will present a list with the signature of every MP supporting them/+
#Iraq
Abadi & Moqtada list includes tens of MPs who split and moved to Ameri/Maliki. They insist on representing the total of MPs on their list even if 30-40 left their coalition to the other side. /+
#Iraq:
The oldest MP will head the Parliament and will decide what to do: either accept one of the two lists or send it to the court to decide.

The Kurds haven't decided, to this instant, which side to support. They are caught between their demands and the #USA pressure/+

#US to Abadi: We support you & will do everything to convince our friends in #Iraq to do the same".

Sunni, Kurds & Shia are all divided, to-date, on the names of the President, Speaker and PM.

This is going to be a long evening/night before tomorrow's Parliament meeting.
Until this moment there is no main coalition. They all fall under 165. Many hours ahead but I doubt much can be achieved.

Abadi has lost 17 of his group
Allawi has lost 9 who left to al-Fath.
More to come. #Iraq

In few words:

The #USA want Abadi
#Iran wants all coalitions to unite and select a new PM but not Abadi.

#Syria's FM Muallem in #Moscow today following trips by #Turkey's @MevlutCavusoglu & #KSA's al-Jubeir. 2/3 of their presser Lavrov and Muallem speak of #US, #Idlib, #Russia/n contacts w/ #Ankara, then Lavrov says.. 1/3
"..from my contacts w/ al Jubeir, other colleagues from the region it appears they all grew stronger in understanding that the reality is government of #Syria providing sovereignty & legitimate security interests of its country."
3/3 #Lavrov concludes: "#Russia always urged unity in #Arab family. Today the family has many problems. But we argue for it to live the way they want in their region. and resist attempts to have their own interests manipulated for the sake of someone else's geopolitical goals."

"If #Qatar doesn't change, the U.S. could always relocate its Al-Udeid operations to the #UAE's Al-Dhafra Air Base." - writes @TomRtweets on @dcexaminer
washex.am/2opUBoC
President @realDonaldTrump should pick up the phone — or get on @Twitter — and tell #Qatari Emir @TamimBinHamad that the #US won't use expanded base facilities in Qatar and will consider relocating the U.S. military out of #Qatar entirely.
#Qatar's intent in constructing new facilities at #AlUdeid is about locking the U.S. into a long-term formal military presence in that nation.
