My thoughts are with the brave people of Lebanon voting in the first election since #BeirutExplosion.
They deserve change.
They deserve not be ruled by an Iran-backed militia
They deserve a better future.
And yes, #Hezbollah is fighting for survival.
For the first time, I saw his followers on Twitter asking people to turn up and vote.
God forbid, are you worried guys?
Sadly, but not surprising, reports of chaos and corruption dominating #LebaneseElections
Calls for Sunni boycott of #Lebaneseelections2022 is stupid… really stupid…

One of many losers of the tragic murder of Palestinian journalist #Shereen_Abu_Aqleh is what I describe as Supremacist Islamism.
#Thread 1/
First let’s define it:
It is a hard core conservative vision of Islam that sees Muslims as superior to others, including Other Abrahamic faiths.
It also views every rule of Sharia as sacred tenant of the faith that can’t and shouldn’t be subjected to modern interpretation 2/
With the rise of Islamism in 70s, Supremacist preachers gain dominance and popularity in many Muslim countries including Egypt & Gulf states.
Sheikh Sharawi in Egypt was one example. His interpretations are still popular, but many didn’t take as suitable for modern era 3/

Amidst global outrage and sadness after the murder of Palestinian journalist #ShereenAbuAqleh, some idiots point to her religion, claiming that because she is Christian, we shouldn’t pray for her!

God… Islamism is sick!
Absolutely infuriating! #شيرين_ابو_عاقلة

#Thread 🧵
Out of all #Egypt’s weekly news, the influx of Israeli tourists to Sinai for #Passover caught the attention of many Egyptians and triggered mixed responses. 1/
Qatar’s Al-Jazeera has published this clip about the long queue of Israelis waiting to enter #Egypt’s #Sinai.
As usual, many Al-Jazeera followers are full of prejudice, and they were not happy, even spouting replies with hints of anti-semitism 2/
To label Israelis, not by their nationality, but by their religion as “Jews”, is in my book antisemitism.
Never thought that some of them are Druze or Baha’i for example?! 3/

I am the generation who witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the transformation of many ex-Soviet countries into liberal democracies.
Now I witness the Western left deaf and mute to #UkraineCrisis; even defending Russia. 1/
Here is Britain’s #JeremyCorbyn openly blaming #NATO; not Russia for #UkraineCrisis.
The same dude who rant against Israel aggression, didn’t voice any support for the people of #Ukraine.
It is, as if the Russian bullying of Ukraine is halal. 2/
Here is Spain’s ruling party openly singing the previous national anthem of the Soviet Union, while #Putin threatening European frontiers.
How pathetic is that?

I see many comparing #UkraineCrisis with #Iraq 2003, when the US falsely claimed that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.
While, I am critical of Biden administration pushing panic button, I believe
this comparison is ludicrously wrong 1/
For a starter:
-Colin Powell’s claim about weapons of mass destruction was unproven.
-In the Ukraine case, satellite images are available for anyone to see.
Putin will not gather 100Ks of troops in winter for fun!
It is Russia who is threatening #Ukraine, citing security concerns.
The US has made it clear it won’t send troops to Ukraine and has Zero appetite to go into a war.
The only threat Biden administration announced is “sanction”
That is a far cry from the Iraq scenario! 3/

1/ The summit cements the strong trilateral relations in #EastMed and proves that their alliance in neither reactionary nor temporary.
It is also multi-modal with economic, political, and security aspects.
3/ As @YanniKouts said on @skynewsarabia this is the first time to have electricity link between Europe and Africa.
Also liquifying Cyprus gas will help ease EU dependency on Russian gas…
