… the last time missing @INTERPOL Pres. #MengHongwei was in the news (aside from a September blip abt a spat b/t #Serbia/#Kosovo re: #INTERPOL membership) was in July. He met w/ #Russia'n Investigative Cmte Chairman #Bastrykin & was criticized by Prosecutor General #YuriChaika.
… another official who was detained by Communist #China recently is #NurBekri. He was head of the #PRC's National Energy Administration & was a #Uyghur. He went missing about a week after meeting w/ #Putin. Is it possible that #Beijing fears #Russia is recruiting its people?

How Europe Raped Africa

The Berlin conference of 1884 is where European colonising nations basically carved up Africa. Historians refer to it as “the scramble for Africa”.

#Africa #Europe #WhiteSupremacy
The countries represented at the time included Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, #France, #Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, #Russia, #Spain, Sweden-Norway (unified from 1814-1905), #Turkey, and the United States of #America.
The Conference of 1884–85, also known as the Congo Conference, regulated European colonization and trade in #Africa during the New Imperialism period and coincided with Germany's sudden emergence as an imperial power.

L'histoire de la #France version 2018:
-ceux venant de l'extérieur étaient toujours gentils et ont tout construit;
-les autochtones les accueillant,eux,étaient méchants et se laissaient vivre;
-d'ailleurs ces autochtones n'existent pas,sauf pour les dénigrer.

La Civilisation française, c'est un fin mélange entre une base gallo-romaine, la philosophie grecque, la spiritualité chrétienne, la royauté issue des Francs, la recherche du beau, la culture du débat et de la raison.
Pourquoi tourner le dos à tout cela ?
#HistoiresDuneNation
Quant à tous ceux qui ironisent sur #Zemmour, qu'ils soient réalistes: tout d'abord, le peuple français a été très stable jusqu'au début du 20e siècle. Ensuite,toutes les vagues d'immigration successives (dont Zemmour) se sont justement assimilées totalement.

My goodness: here's a prime example of policy advocacy on #Syria based either on ignorance, or [hopefully not] malign intent.

This is *riddled* with inaccuracy & misinformation.

@steelejourno says the West should force an opposition surrender in #Syria:

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@steelejourno #pt: @steelejourno says the US, UK & #France are “less honorable” in seeking to delay #Syria & #Russia’s “success” in regaining territory.

- They seek to enable a meaningful political process, in which there’s an opposition entity to sit at the table. I’d say that is honorable.
@steelejourno #pt: Here, @steelejourno says UK, US, France & "Gulf Arab monarchies” want ceasefires to protect rebels, not civilians.

In #Idlib, nothing could be further from the truth. None of those countries have *any* ties to rebel groups in #Idlib, who only equal ~0.5% of the population.

Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

BREAKING - Likely #Israel airstrikes just hit a scientific research center - reportedly linked to the SSRC - in #Latakia.

#Assad regime air defenses were allegedly activated in multiple provinces: #Latakia, #Tartus, #Homs & #Hama.
Mabrouk #Assad - your invincible air defenses shot down an aircraft!

... a #Russia IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down over #Syria tonight - amid #Israel airstrikes in #Latakia.

#OwnGoal

Tonight’s developments vis-a-vis #Israel & Russia are a pretty big deal.

It would seem #Israel may have acted without giving #Moscow prior warning = big challenge to their prior arrangement.

Or, #Russia did know, but got attacked by their errant ally in #Damascus = humiliating.

Who is this fascist and white supremacist and what has he accomplished over the past year other than go on a tour of Europe where he told fellow fascists not to be ashamed of being called “racist”? This normalizing of fascism and white supremacy is a disgrace.
And this is the same magazine that ran this headline. A gathering of war criminals was “the biggest resistance meeting yet.”
Steve Bannon speaking to #France's far-right National Front party: "Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes... wear it as a badge of honor." He is a fascist & white supremacist: anyone sharing a stage with him is an enabler. And remember all the oxygen he gets e.g.

Here, a @UKLabour MP praises a notorious conspiracist who says meeting Bashar al-#Assad was her "proudest" moment.

She's justified incendiary weapons & barrel bombs on civilian targets; suggested 9/11 was a false flag; Zionists rule #France & the #CharlieHebdo attack was fake.
@UKLabour Extraordinary.

@UU_University invited notorious conspiracist Vanessa Beeley to lecture on “War Reporting.”

Her claims were so outlandish, the students walked out & boycotted the course, calling it “a propaganda camp.”

(PS - Look at the pictured slide)
@UKLabour @UU_University #pt: Among Beeley’s claims at @UU_University:

- @hrw is run by a secret “Jewish organization called the #Washington elite.”

- #Russia only promotes international peace

- #Syria’s opposition "tear pregnant women in half, betw'n cats”

- All media (e.g. @guardian) are govt tools

J'ai lu "Essai sur la nature du commerce en général" de Cantillon (1755), voici un #thread sur des trucs que j'ai appris / que j'ai trouvés intéressants / des extraits choisis. 1/
2/ Bien qu'"Essai" ait été probablement rédigé vers 1730, il n'a été publié qu'en 1755 suite à une forte censure en #France, il a été diffusé sous la forme d'un manuscrit inédit entre son achèvement et sa publication. Il est considéré comme le 1er traité complet sur l'#économie
3/ Le type de monnaie utilisé n'est pas décrété mais provient de l'usage. L'or et l'argent sont de facto les meilleures solutions (en 1730. Et en 2018? quid des #cryptomonnaies ?)

New Foreign Secretary @Jeremy_Hunt is in Paris to discuss Brexit & bilateral relations. Can he expect any favours? (mini thread)
1. The good news: France values UK relationship – ally in Middle East, Africa, UN and NATO & partner on intelligence, counter-terrorism. Discussions take place at bilateral level, so largely unaffected by Brexit.
2. The flip-side: France clear that Brexit negotiations are led by the EU. Its position hasn’t changed: UK cannot expect same benefits or preferential treatment. UK-EU trade will inevitably be weaker.

753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

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.
Clearly the regime in #Tehran is nervous. They tried targeting this #FreeIran2018 gathering in #Paris but were foiled in Belgium. The tide of history is rising up to swallow the regime. theguardian.com/world/2018/jul…
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

1/ Think of the number of people who know details concerning as yet unprosecuted @ClintonFdn FRAUDS---how many of these have been cooperating with state, federal, foreign governments @csthetruth?
2/ Then think of the number of accounting firms and professional advisers (especially including law firms) that enabled or conspired to cover up the @ClintonFdn FRAUDS, "thinking" perhaps that @HillaryClinton would be a "bankable", malleable president
3/ Then consider how many governments, crooked donors, and hackers may have penetrated abysmal "control systems" at @ClintonFdn and affiliated "charities" to become aware of CROOKED, multiparty FRAUDS and CORRUPTION

The most inaccurate article on the Swahili I have ever read!! A thread soon following!!! On what #BeingSwahili means #IamSwahili
I promised a thread on this but since I submitted a letter to the editor to @nytimes, I couldn’t post it elsewhere till after the review period. Since they didn’t publish it, here it goes...”#SomeoneTellNYTimes Swahili people exist” #BeingSwahili nytimes.com/2018/06/14/art…
In his review, Holland Cotter rewrites Swahili history in a way that wipes out the history of over 5million people by claiming that the Swahili language “belongs to no particular ethnic group or place” yet #IamSwahili. #BeingSwahili @nytimes

The Case for a ‘Strategic Backstop' mechanism for Libya

#LibyaStrategicBackstop
#Libya needs a strategic relationship with one member of the #UNSC to act as an International ‘Backstop’.

The purpose of the Strategic Backstop mechanism is to ensure effective 'Triangulation' of the #Libyan transition and ‘stop’ #Libya from falling ‘back’ into conflict
Without a strategic backstop mechanism, the unity and stability of the #UN Security Council itself is at stake.

In this thread I will lay out what why both #Libya and the International Community, need this backstop, and how it could function.
