Iran's policy towards Azeri aggression on Artsakh in late 2020 early 2021 was shortsighted. Armenians were never a threat to Tehran. Now the latter has to deal with a rogue country who enjoys excellent ties to Tel Aviv. In addition to thousands of salafist (Syrian) mercenaries.
I made this video a year ago in which I elaborated the main reasons for the Israeli support of Azerbaijan relying on leaked documents by @wikileaks: Iran🇮🇷, Arms🚀 & Oil🛢️
Also from last year, political researcher Ararat Kostanian (@ararat007) based in Yerevan addressed to @SyrianaAnalysis the bizarre alliance between Israel and Azerbaijan.
I will tell you my personal experience with racism in Germany after 6 years of continuous residence and constant and daily contact with the Germans. So here's a thread 1/:
We must first define "racism" and it is simply the persecution and marginalization of individuals and groups for reasons including race, colour, religion or culture. 2/
On the governmental, administrative and legal levels, I believe Germany is one of the least racist countries and Berlin tirelessly develops its laws and social norms to provide an environment based on equality for all its inhabitants. 3/
President Assad met today with President Putin in Moscow and talks focused on combating terrorism. #Idlib
Assad: “I am happy to meet today in Moscow. The joint operation to combat terrorism has now been going on for about 6 years, during which the Syrian & Russian armies have made great achievements, not only by liberating lands or by returning refugees to their cities & villages, 1/
Assad: but also through protecting many innocent citizens in this world because terrorism knows no political borders and does not stop at political borders.” 2/
1/ Former U.S. special envoy to Syria James Jeffrey said the U.S. had “indirect channels” to al-Nusra “through people in the media, people in the NGO world who did have direct contacts with them.”
I posted a video on the matter some time ago.
2/ Jeffrey: "We opened indirect channels to them as soon as we could, and kept Secretary [Mike] Pompeo advised of it and what we were learning, but we never raised the subject of opening specific channels directly with them,"
3/ Jeffrey: "in part because the Russians would exploit it, as would Assad; in part because we didn't want to make the Turks nervous."
Syria's MoFA: the #EU, with its applied policy, is only a continuation of colonialism, but in a modern way, reiterating that statements of some EU officials on its role and conditions in the reconstruction process clearly indicate a misunderstanding of what is going on in #Syria.
Syria's MoFA: for Syria, the EU institution with its applied policy is only a continuation of colonialism, but Syria’s view towards the EU has been based on true experiences that Syria has passed through with the EU before the war and that the terrorist war came to prove them.
Syria's MoFA: the EU had presented for Syria has never been donations or offers, but loans that were paid periodically from the money of the Syrian people.
I took a critical position on Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan after signing the capitulation agreement with Azerbaijan and my argument consisted of the following:
- Pashinyan made miscalculations.
- Pashinyan is incompetent.
- Pashinyan is ignorant in geopolitics.
And due to his sins & incompetence, he betrayed the Armenian nation without really knowing that he betrayed us. However, I'm gradually changing my position on Pashinyan, especially what has he done after the capitulation agreement, such as handing over strategic regions to AZ🇦🇿
although these regions were not mentioned in the agreement. My impression is, Pashinyan is trying to gain some sort of a support in Moscow by adopting the business plans of Putin between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
You may agree with me thay Erdogan's Turkey is the biggest threat to the regional security and his actions risking a full scale war, massacres and ethnic cleansing.
Turkey for example exported tens of thousands of multinational jihadists to Syria, collaborated closely with ISIS and Al-Nusra Front, and trained tens of thousands more mercenaries.
This behaviour has led to the killing of hundreds of thousands of Syrians and millions of refugees. Erdogan's neo-Ottomanism didn't stop in Syria and extended to Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Greece and now to Armenia.
By the time of writing this Tweet, Erdogan's #Turkey🇹🇷 has transited hundreds of Syrian mercenaries to the conflict zone between #Armenia🇦🇲 & #Azerbaijan🇦🇿, in a bid to give upper hand for the latter.
These mercenaries were formerly known as the Free Syrian Army, which was backed, financed and armed by several western intelligence agencies, in addition to Turkey, Qatar, KSA, etc.
The flag of the so-called Free Syrian Army can be seen on a daily basis in the streets of Germany carried by sympathizers of the radicals, despite the track record of this armed group in committing horrendous war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Major military operation is prepared by the SAA and Russian army to recapture the Southern part of M4 highway. Reports from Syria indicate that the timing of the offensive is in the next few weeks if not few days. #Syria#Idlib
SAMA reporter says the SAA is expected to attack Ariha, Arbaeen Mountain, Jabal Al-Zawiya & Kabani which are controlled by various radical takfiri groups.
Don't be fooled: #Idlib is the world's largest Al-Qaeda haven where Syrians who don't share the ideology of the terrorists are slaughtered, women forced to cover from head to toe and stoned to death for "adultery". #GeorgeFlyod
We always hear about the #MuslimBrotherhood. While some demonize the MB, others consider it alternative to the current regimes in the MENA region. But how did the MB emerge, what's its ideology , and who are its theorists? Watch Part 1:
The MB claims that it's an anti-imperialist group. How true is this claim? I'll address this in part 2, in addition to the British collision with the Islamist group.
