#FrenchElections2022: Le Pen won the majority in overseas French colonies tt voted for Macron in 2017. Midday #turnout was estimated at 26.41%, almost 2 points less than the noon turnout in the vote 5 years ago. Most youngsters expected to boycott the elections: bad for Macron.
Most French citizens look for what the new President will offer domestically (jobs, health care, retirement, immigration, salaries...). So spare yourself the anti and pro #Russia stupidity and foreign policy narrative when you have no clue about #franceelections criteria.
Although the two candidates, Macron and Le Pen, spoke about #Russia and the #EU during their two and a half hours of debate, MOST French citizens are careless about #Ukraine and the #US-#Russia war when casting their votes.
French Voters r caught btwn a bad & the worst candidate. Those who are anti-far-right will vote for Macron or abstain. The leftists may not vote at all or vote for Macron because the choice is limited. However, the far-right is more organised and compact. Surprises r not excluded
However, the game-changer is in two months when the new Parliament will shape the power in the country and may bring the leftist candidate to power (Prime Minister) potentially. A cohabitation would be necessary.

For the EU and @JoeBiden , Le Pen is a nightmare.
Over 63% (around 49 million eligible) have voted till 5 pm, increasing @EmmanuelMacron's chances to win this evening even if the % of those who chose not to vote is expected to be higher than in the last two decades. Still, the number of voters is significant.
#FranceElections2022 :

Voting ended. Final Results in an hour or so.
Unofficial results:
57% Macron
43% Le Pen

Waiting for the final results.
It is final: @EmmanuelMacron won a second term with 58%.
#France avoided a potential civil war. Can't explain all details on Twitter but notwithstanding Le Pen anti-NATO stand, her plans were disastrous to the French security forces and to many French people. Remember, 13 million voted Le Pen while Macron's real supporters were 12 mil.
President @EmmanuelMacron benefitted from anti-Le Pen, leftists, angry with the right-wing plans .... Not because he is the best choice, but because the choice was limited to many voters.

#Israel restricts access to #Christians & #Muslims worshipers: on Al-Aqsa daily but also to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, within the walls of the Old City of #Jerusalem, & attacked worshipers with weapons. Israel claims to be "democratic". @Pontifex
#Disgusting #Terrorism
#Israel doesn't care about the significance of Al-Aqsa and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, named after the resurrection of Jesus, the holiest and most important church in the Christian world, according to Christian beliefs, contains the place where Jesus was buried.
Masjid Al-Aqsa is located in the Old City of Jerusalem in #Palestine. Its name translates as ‘the Farthest Mosque’ and includes the Dome of the Rock, 17 gates and 4 minarets, usually referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif, which means ‘the Noble Sanctuary’.

Disgusting #Doublestands
#NATO has the "right" to establish a base in #Ukraine #Georgia #Finland and #Sweden but.... 👇👇

The US is ready to respond accordingly and will not allow #China to establish a military base on the Solomon Island.
When #Russia asked the #US not spread NATO, western countries responded that "countries have the right to decide what they want". That was on the 24th of February.

I hope by now you all understand that what is happening in #Ukraine is a #US battle for its world dominance only.
Basically the role is simple: no other country in the world is allowed to do what the #US has the exclusively right to do.

This is what the war in #Ukraine is about. And @ZelenskyyUa, an actor, has given control of his country to the de facto President Victoria Nuland.

When USAF & Avex Aerospace r producing 121 "Phoenix Ghost" drones for #Ukraine it means that the US has declared war on #Russia. #Moscow won't hesitate in supplying deadly weapons to the enemies of the #US, mainly in the ME (#Syria #Iraq) where many r eager to kick out the #US.
Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau says #Canada would support #Sweden and #Finland in joining #NATO. Will #France accept and the west becomes a battlefield against #Russia? Let's find out after Sunday's election who will be the next President and what would be his/her decision.
The more advance #Russia registers on the #Ukraine battlefield against NATO that stands behind the Ukrainian army, the more voices will call for an immediate ceasefire, a Humanitarian crisis, cessation of hostility, UN involvement, Diplomatic talks are vital, & more false flags.

#Iran sent pictures to #Europe - that were passed over to #Israel - of many of the Israeli nuclear weapons and strategic warehouses that have been taken on land by human intelligence supported with maps. +
The reason why #Iran forwarded these intelligence pieces of information and maps to a European envoy is due to the threat that Europe tried to "scare" Iran by saying, "we can't hold back #Israel for very long unless you show more flexibility and sign the nuclear deal".+
#Iran responded by sending intelligence information about Israel locations, supposedly "secrets", saying that "we do not advise any stupid move from #Israel because all these targets will be hit by our precision missiles if we are attacked.+

#Russia's minister of defense, Shoigu, said that #Mariupol is under Russian control. It is unknown what will happen to the Nazi-Azov battalion. But the Russian said that anyone who lays down arms voluntarily will be guaranteed the right to life.
#Ukraine Psdnt @ZelenskyyUa said, "negotiation w/ #Russia will cease if #Mariupol falls". He is unaware tt he can't dictate his conditions & that Russia is not the West. The negotiations r useless because Zelensky depends on the US dictate that wishes for the war to continue.
The day the #US consider the war is totally lost, it will push the international community to increase the anti-Russian propaganda and will push the @UN to have a role in "bringing peace". This is what usually happen.

Gloves off
Pentagon: #Ukraine has received fighter planes & aircraft parts to bolster its air force. This indicates a change in #US attitude, which had initially refused to provide Ukraine w/ heavy armaments to avoid action #Russia cld consider direct involvement in the conflict.
The announcement comes a week after #US President @JoeBiden unveiled an $800 million military aid package for #Kyiv, including heavier equipment such as Helicopters, and howitzers (US army training the Ukrainians on their use), as fighting escalates in eastern #Ukraine.
It is unclear how #Ukraine manages to bring into the country jets, Helicopters, Howitzers and tons of military types of equipment if #Russia has the air dominance over the Ukrainian air space and adequate intelligence overseeing the ongoing war.
