Oh... oh... Hassounah is speaking live now...

Just what we need at this surreal day!
#Nasrallah rushes to deny #Netanyahu’s claim that Netanyahu shows that Hezbollah has an arms depot adjacent to gas canisters in the Jonah. He invites journalists to visit the place!
#Nasrallah is clearly feeling the pressure. He is fully aware that his popularity has plummeted after #BeirutBlast
The way #Nasrallah talks as if he is the cute lamb of #Lebanon is suffocating!
#Nasrallah sarcastically describes a *club* of ex-PMs who took over the task of forming Lebanese’s gov’t. And Saad Hariri was mediating between them and Hezbollah.
Endless waffling by #Nasrallah, basically to justify why he sabotaged the @EmmanuelMacron #French initiative and the failure of formation of #Lebanon’s gov’t.
Interesting how #Nasrallah is trying to place the blame on his political opponents, without criticising @EmmanuelMacron and the French initiative.
Thus far, I chocked 3 times watching #Nasrallah speech.
The third one when he said “he fears for #Lebanon
Oh cutie...
#Nasrallah openly admit that he vetoed the suggested gov’t because he put clear redlines, mainly
no #IMF loan
Oh boy, #Nasrallah talks about democracy, respect for majority, and deliberation between political groups.
This the dude who sided by Syria’s Assad.
Now the big joke...
#Nasrallah asserts he doesn’t terrorise anyone in Lebanon, and everyone is free to express freely his own views, “unlike other Arab countries”!
It is as if Samir Qassir, Gibran Tueni, and a loooooong list of victims murdered in #Lebanon
#Nasrallah reserved the last part of his speech to bash #Bahrain for normalising relations with #Israel.
#Nasrallah wants French baguette stuffed with Iranian dolma!

Shame on @POTUS to go ahead and appoints pro-Mullahs @Rob_Malley as his envoy on #Iran.
What a disaster

#Biden has handed the keys of the levant and Yemen to the Mullahs
Yes, there is no better “for the Mullahs” to appoint their favourite man in DC.
Knowledge is dangerous when ideological outlook is in sync with American enemies.
Triumphant #Zarif, standing next to his Turkish FM,
sensed @POTUS’s soft approach
and laying his Mullahs masters terms and conditions.

#Lebanon’s #Tripoli is the poorest city in the #Mediterranean, with marginalised #Sunni population with reported of 80% uneducated, high unemployment, well before #BeirutBlast
No wonder the city’s youth had enough and protest against #lockdown
Thus far, one dead & 200+ injured
Traditionally, the #Hariri’s Mustaqbel party is the patron of Sunnis, but thanks to Saad Hariri’s weak leadership, Sunnis, especially in #Tripoli, are now under the influence of Salafi sheikhs and even #Erdogan’s #Turkey

This is @POTUS’s first unwise FP decision, since his inauguration.
To put hold on F-35s sale to #UAE is an indirect sabotage of the #AbrahamAccords with #Israel.
Shame ... Shame.. Shame...

Why @POTUS wants to resurrect the Middle East problems of the Obama years?
#UAE #F35
Credit to @POTUS and @SecBlinken, Arabs are losing faith in peace. If the US continues with such approach, many youth will think Iran’s terror approach is what the US leadership prefers.

A top Egyptian lawyer appeared on Tv program @Elhekayashow with @Amradib to explain the details of #Italy’s Regeni murder in #Egypt.
This alone is unprecedented! 1/
The Egyptian lawyer says they are two parallel events:
The first, is a gang of Egyptians who attack foreigners in Egypt and steal their stuff, they were responsible for several attacks including Regeni.
He claims other foreigners reported similar cases since 2015. 2/
Same lawyer says that another unrelated event, in which one of vendors who regeni dealt with as case study for his research became suspicious of Regeni and reported him to #Egypt’s security. He asserted that security investigated the claim and found it wrong; #Regeni innocent 3/

Welcome to Palestinian ruthless oppression:

The arrest of Sama occurred after attack on private recording for streamed performance in Jericho’s Nabi Mousa by group of young people after vicious campaign of misinformation on social media that fueled violent reactions against Sama
Sama Abdulhadi is a victim of Islamism, regression, and misogyny.
The Palestinian society now consider music haram?
After arresting #SamaAbdulhadi, Islamist Palestinians flocked to the historic site of #NabiMousa and threw all the musical instruments, hotel furniture out.... As if they are liberating Palestine !

Many wrote about the impacts of Brexit on UK, but few wrote about the challenges facing EU.
This article is well worth reading.
I also think the hasty deal with China before @JoeBiden inauguration; ignoring Chinese HR record, was very unwise.
EU leaders focused on maintaining unity against UK, managed to hide many deep seated differences.
Following #Brexit, however, those differences will eventually surface.
They are facing tough challenges on many fronts:
• Relations with US
•Handling #Turkey
•Countering Islamism
This 👇👇 is one example of #EU and its fake unity.
Many smaller EU countries resent #Germany’s Merkel bossy dominance but they are too coward to openly admit their dissatisfaction.
Instead, they leaked to American media.
