Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard
“#Hamas is not authorized to sign any agreement with #Israel because it has no representative status,” a senior Fatah official in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post. “The Palestinian Authority is the only legitimate party representing the Palestinians.”
What if we just got #Fatah and #Hamas their own Attaché badges like Edward Tavner on the show, Patriot? We could engrave, “Legitimate Palestinian Representative,” on it instead. 💡
Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ab…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough. jpost.com/Israel-News/PL…
Because THIS guy draws another false equivalence between the torrent of lies he spun selling the #IranDeal and Trump’s meetings that resulted in nothing similar, I’m compelled to call him out in vivid detail as I did in 2015 with this thread for the record 👇🏼
You can follow along with the article I wrote in @TimesofIsrael in 2015, "Framework Iran’ Sequel Leaves Audiences and Critics Confused" in which I demonstrate that at nearly every turn, #Iran's version of the deal was accurate and the White House lied. blogs.timesofisrael.com/framework-iran…
We should recall that in 2015, there was a sizable disagreement between the garbage Ben Rhode's and his #EchoChamber were selling, what Europe was saying, and what #Iran said happened.
The fascinating question is how many Trump tweets will it take to completely remove from US news coverage the discovery of a “lake of liquid water” on Mars?
Normally, the discovery of a lake of liquid water on a neighboring planet would be newsworthy because IT’S THE BLEEPIN’ DISCOVERY OF WATER ON #MARS!!!!! But, you know, it’s 2018 and Trump said something on Twitter and Michael Cohen this and that and all those porn stars so...
Hello 👋. THEY JUST DISCOVERED A BLEEPIN’ LAKE OF WATER ON #MARS! That is to say, ON BLEEPIN’ MARS THERE IS A BLEEPIN’ 12.5 MILE WIDE LAKE OF WATER. But, you know, what’s important is 👇🏼. Is it too soon to pack my bags? This planet has become unbearable and easily distracted.
If I were in the advice-giving business to Syrian pilots, I’d say “you might want to avoid flying into #Israel’s airspace.” But I’m not in that business so let’s instead play a game of “See what happens when...”
These Red Alert 🚨 sirens in communities on #Israel’s side of the #Golan are likely the result of this nearby fighting in SW #Syria among the gangs who can’t shoot straight.
I appear to be correct in my above tweet as the @IDFSpokesperson response is, "Following reports regarding sirens in the #Golan regional council, a launch was identified from #Syria at Israeli territory. It appears to have been errant fire from the internal fighting in Syria."
Exactly. The issue for #Israel is #Iran in #Syria, not the distance from its borders. Iran has precision guided munitions and ballistic missiles that can strike Israel from anywhere in Syria. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
This would be akin to the Soviet Union offering to move it's nuclear weapons from Cuba to Jamaica. It's a non-starter.
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.
I'll be on @AlArabiya_Eng at 2PM ET discussing the Trump administration decision to mull over whether it designate all of #Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) as a terrorist organization. i24news.tv/en/news/intern…
I joined Al-Arabiya to discuss the implications of the Trump administration's possible decision to list the entire IRGC as a terrorist organization. Here's a link to the video (Arabic). vid.alarabiya.net/2018/07/03/tkt…
Tens of thousands have gathered in Paris and to demand #IranRegimeChange#FreeIran2018. Given the last 6 months of escalating protests in #Iran, the idea is gathering steam and could be past a point of no return.
Belgium prosecutor’s statement on the foiled terrorist attack planned for the #FreeIran2018 conference. Found with 500gm of TATP explosives. Their contact was an Iranian national working at the Austrian ministry in Vienna - where Prez Rouhani is scheduled to visit shortly. #Iran
Curious what facts MSM is not reporting about today's planned tantrum in #Gaza that Palestinians call the #GazaReturnMarch? Look no further and unwind this thread 👇 #Israel
These planned riots on the border between #Israel and #Gaza have been taking place for 6+ weeks and expected to culminate on May 15th (tomorrow), to coincide with the Palestinian “Nakba” day.
#GazaReturnMarch is of course named after the so-called "right of return" of 5 - 7 million refugees and their offspring because Palestinians are invested in the mythology that they flood and strangle #Israel, a country of 8 million. Keep dreaming.
Two examples of how Team Obama has switched #IranDeal talking points to obfuscate yet again and save the deal. 1) Moniz says that the US knew all along what Netanyahu and #Israel exposed about their nuclear program.
2) Moniz says that not only do #Israel’s intel revelations add very little - just some new names of people and places where some nuclear work is being conducted - but it reinforces the need to keep the deal. We lose out by nixing the deal.
Several reasons why this line of logic is pure garbage: 1) The deal specifically DOES NOT deal with the weaponization aspect of #Iran’s nuclear program. If it did, then they would have demanded a full accounting (as they promised) of all previous weaponization progress.
This January 31, 2011 @WSJ interview with #Assad didn't age well. He said the regional upheaval would bypass #Syria because unlike #Egypt it wasn't supported by the US and it had its own reform process. Whoops. wsj.com/articles/SB100…
He followed this up by blaming Mubarak's fall in #Egypt on its commitment to peace with #Israel - because that was what he believed Egyptians were protesting. Therefore, as the Syrian media argued, Syria's membership in the Resistance Axis would ensure Assad's rule.
