#Nasrallah: To our Christian brothers, neither Hezbollah, nor Amal, nor the Shia, nor any Muslim is your enemy. But Let's focus on Hezbollah.
#Nasrallah: When Daesh and Nusra penetrated eastern Lebanon and the Bekaa, who was their friends, their ally and their financial support? It was the Lebanese Forces party.
#Nasrallah to Christian Lebanese: Ask the people of Rablah, Deir Attieh, Maaloula, ask the churches in #Syria and the clergy in #Syria, how did Hezbollah treat you?

Historische Analogien sind riskant, sie können jedoch Horizonte öffnen, durch Aufzeigen von gemeinsamem & unterschiedlichem historischen Situationen.

Der Paradigmenwechsel von der westlichen US-Dominanz zum asiatischen Jahrhundert wird durch Covid19 (Corona) noch beschleunigt. Image
Bis zum Jahr 1820 waren die größten Volkswirtschaften der Welt stets China und Indien. Nur in den letzten 200 Jahren haben Europa und die Vereinigten Staaten ihren Siegeszug angetreten. Gegenüber den 2.000 Jahren zuvor ist die westliche Dominanz eine Anomalie. Image
Natürlich wird sie irgendwann ihr Ende finden. Alle großen Weltmächte scheitern letztlich an ihrer eigenen Macht und Übergröße und gehen unter. Image

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

Deeply honoured that @PrixBayeux has given us the TV award for this report from #Yemen in January. It comes as the UN Human Rights Council halts an independent investigation into possible war crimes by all sides in #Yemen. #YemenCantWait
This is Ruwaydah, 8. She was shot in the head by a sniper, as she went to collect water. It was her brother Amri, 10, who dragged her to safety. Human rights activists in #Taiz have documented hundreds of attacks on children by #Houthi snipers. #YemenCantWait
The maiming and killing of children is not limited to one side in the war in #Yemen. We reported in 2018 on the school boys killed when their bus was hit in an airstrike by the #Saudi led coalition. At least 40 children never came home. #YemenBusAttack #YemenCantWait

1. Today, the UN body tasked w/ "promoting + protecting human rights" failed.

The UNHRC decided to delete the only int'l investigation into #Yemen abuses while the war(s) continue + justice is absent b/c... those implicated would rather not.

A thread on the history of #UNGEE:
2. Since warring parties began fighting, others have been trying to mitigate impact. They've done so in myriad ways, calling for peace, for aid, for int'l law compliance, reporting facts amidst a sea of nonsense, working towards justice. In and outside #Yemen.
3. As part of this wider mosaic of rights-related work, early on, a group of civil society orgs set their sights on the UN Human Rights Council. They wanted to persuade states to establish an international investigation for #Yemen.

1. Following #HRC48 vote in Geneva on #Yemen, as have done for years, and disbelieving that in 2021, there's a worry states will quash only int'l investigation into rights abuses due to pressure from parties, as war continues. #SupportUNGEE

Watch here:…
2. Netherlands introduces resolution to renew mandate of UN Yemen investigation (UNGEE) for two years. Reminds that UNGEE created by consensus in 2017. Efforts to quash UNGEE came only after first report on warring parties' rights violations.
3. Netherlands also reminds that UNGEE is complementary to the Yemeni National Commission, not in competition with the group, and that the resolution includes a call for support to the Yemeni National Commission.

#YEMEN:CBY Sends Warning Letter to Bank of #England
The Central Bank of Yemen (CBY) warned the Bank of England of serious repercussions regarding its intention to release the Yemeni assets it has in favor of the Central Bank in #Aden.
