Great comments from @MWLOrg_en 1st multifaith conference in #KSA.
“The Orthodox Church considers it is her duty to encourage all that which genuinely serves the cause of peace and paves the way to justice, fraternity, true freedom, and mutual love among…
orthodoxtimes.com/bartholomew-it… all peoples who make up the one human family. She suffers with all people who in various parts of the world are deprived of the benefits of peace and justice.”

The 2nd part of my interview with News from Yemen discusses the 2 month truce with #Houthis, why #Iran has approved the truce, why #Iran won't give up on #Yemen, & how Saudi @modgovksa can help avoid deception & manipulation of Saudi diplomats in #Oman.

This is an emotionally manipulative hit piece, not a investigation. NY Times has the ethical duty to interview the mothers of all Salvadorans butchered with matches by the gangsters - and who will never be seen again. Why do mothers of perps matter more?
nytimes.com/2022/05/12/wor… 1. How do you tell propaganda from an investigation?
* Propaganda focuses on character assassination & one-sided emotional impact with little by way of verifiable data or other evidence. In this case the article has turned @nayibbukele into a cartoonish villain.

My tweet is quoted in @barlamanefr's article about a separatist who has endangered the life of a US citizen by interfering with an effort to provide this hunger striking American with medical assistance.

Thread:
Why the witch hunt against @nayibbukele in the midst of his successful operation to take down gangsters in #ElSalvador? 1. His anti-crime initiative makes #Biden & democrats look bad, having turn all urban cities into crime-infested ghettoes.
washingtonpost.com/world/el-salva… 2. Unlike #Biden, @nayibbukele is popular with his population, and as a political force, he will be around for a long time, much to the chagrin of the leftists. They see in the young president a LONG-TERM challenge to the leftist project in Latin America.

Joined @WIONews @eriknjoka @white_lenka to discuss the shooting in the Brooklyn subway which injured 13 people. We talked NYC crime rising, law enforcement policies, mental health & fentanyl crisis, #Biden's comments, and safety concerns in US urban areas.

Thread:
1.Clearly @SecBlinken has no better things to do at the moment that to attack the US ally #ElSalvador on "free speech" as @nayibbukele follows legal procedures in arrests of gang members responsible for a murder spree.
state.gov/violence-and-t… 2. Is the #Biden administration pro-gang violence? Because that is the only thing that can explain this baseless embarrassing attack on the leadership of a friendly country doing his job in protecting his citizens AS WELL AS preventing spread of violent gangsters to the US!

Quoted in @RajaAajtv's latest article describing the consequences of Imran Khan's being ousted from PM position by a no-confidence vote. #Pakistan is at the crossroads as to whether continue on #Khan's Eastern bloc trajectory or to make amends with US.

Questions about the #Negev_Summit:
1. As a supporter of #AbrahamAccords, I would have loved nothing better for the Negev Summit to have been a meaningful opportunity for a constructive & frank exchange of ideas building on the foundation between participants. 2. Alas, once again, it appears to be nothing more than another hastily organized photo op. I don't see clear follow-ups that would indicate a substantive basis of support to the points raised to the summit.

Thread: US Senators weaponized

First, @nayibbukele is perfectly within his right to criticize the group of meddling senators trying to start a @StateDept investigation of #BTC in #ElSalvador. What's there to investigate? It's an internal financial matter.
markets.businessinsider.com/news/currencie… Second, it's clear that US is in poor position to criticize anyone on their currency choices given the absurd levels of #inflation thanks to corrupt multitrilliondollar boondoggles benefiting some of these senators, among many other gravy train riders.

Thread:
1. In recent weeks, #Saudi opposition, linked to extremists & to #Qatar, including Lina Al-Hathloul have been trying to once again draw attention to Loujain Al Hathloul in an effort to renew the view of her as a victim a year after her release.
reuters.com/technology/how… 2. As a reminder Loujain Al Hathloul once campaigned for women's rights to drive but once #MBS came to power and this form of lobbying & activism became irrelevant, switched to propaganda against #KSA on foreign channels in exchange for funding & fame.

Threat: FM #Bourita's #AbrahamAccords failure raise the specter of anti-#Israel backlash in #morocco.

1. The article takes issue with FM #Bourita's & the Kushner gang's failure to respond to official US maps issued excluding #Morocco's Sahara sovereignty.
choroknews24.com/%d9%84%d9%85%d… 2. Accordingly, the voices which this publication represents point to the failures of #Morocco-#Israel restoration of relations to advance the goals vital to #Morocco's national sovereignty interests.

My comments in @SohailShaer's segment on #Biden being criticized for not taking more decisive action on #Ukraine in the report for @AlGhadTV. I discuss the perception of the US as an unreliable ally for failure to keep its defense commitments to #Ukraine.

Thread: Invasion

Set your DVRs/make sure to be awake to watch live action! More seriously, couple of observations:
1. Whenever you have a precise leak like that, you can be sure that real action will happen at some other point in time or is already happening elsewhere. Image 2. Putin's intention to return #Ukraine to #RUssia's sphere of influence are very real. A recent attempted coup ignored by most #media is evidence of that intent. But the encirclement strategy may be less bluff & more Normandy-style diversion.

1. It was only a matter of time before #Qatar propaganda that's been in the works for years would come into conservative leaning Jewish media to attack #Israel among its staunchest defenders. The warrantless domestic police surveillance is the last straw.

jns.org/opinion/the-em… 2. #Qatar, an actual police & surveillance state, has been working for several years to portray #Israel's cybersecurity companies, such as #NSO, as the root of all evil around the globe - while working hard to acquire same or equivalent capabilities.

Thread: Will #NSO countersue for defamation?

1. It looks like #NSO may have a colorable defamation argument against a number of parties who had accused the company's #Pegasus software of being used to hack mobile devices, knowingly causing baseless reputational damage. 2. The first on this list is none other than @JeffBezos who not only was not hacked by #MBS through Whatsapp (or by anyone at all) but COULD NOT Have been hacked by #Pegasus using that method, because that's not how Pegasus works.
