After an open letter from victims of China's @CGTNOfficial use of forced TV confessions - essentially tools of political terror - Norway takes CGTN off the air. Sweden took both CGTN and CCTV-4 off the air previously after complaints in local media. https://t.co/EyRuVUIvFc https://t.co/4Kn3SgPASm

To my Muslim friends celebrating worldwide, #RamadanMubarak. Let this be a time to come together for reflection, spiritual growth and peace. When I spoke out @UN_HRC for 1 million Muslim Uighurs being detained by 🇨🇳 China, they freaked out & tried to shut me down. They failed. https://t.co/DwgvypLM3Y

While the foreign minister speaks officially for the German government, I know many German people who do understand the murderous nature of the Iranian regime and think otherwise than Mr. Heiko Mass.

The UNHRC seems incapable of protecting the right to property because it members typically include regimes like Cuba and Venezuela who systematically steal the property of their people. https://t.co/2YMYsdv7kE

Interestingly, the UNHRC has never created a mandate to protect the right to property, which is guaranteed under Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, yet it has 55 other mandates including the Cuban-created one below on "the effects of foreign debt." https://t.co/pVxBSBcgtS

Iran knows “of course“ Israel sabotaged their Natanz facility, which produces enriched uranium to make nuclear weapons, because that's their target. https://t.co/aU3uk2DWgf

If Matthew Rojansky ends up as Biden’s national security advisor for Russia, Navalny is as good as dead. Rojansky was the biggest cheerleader in D.C. for the Obama’s Russian re-set and Putin will see this as a sign that Washington will do nothing if they kill Navalny. https://t.co/v93V0xvJsE

Can confirm per multiple sources that NSC has been weighing appointing Rojansky as director for Russia -- one step below the current acting senior director -- for at least several weeks now, and has been warned against it by several current and former senior officials. https://t.co/CMC0zoiDfI

Founded in 1961, Amnesty built a reputation for supporting prisoners of conscience. While some in the global organization still do good work, Amnesty has lost direction, often supporting antisemites, misogynists, homophobes & terrorists. Thread: https://t.co/ETcexTVMRW

Moments after mass murderer Qassem Soleimani was killed while plotting attacks in Iraq, @AgnesCallamard tweetstormed that the U.S. airstrike “violates international human rights law.” She then turned this into a major UNHRC report—which was adored by Iran. https://t.co/0ojjql1BSL

On the contrary, the NYT interview which she cited says that Peres protected Arafat, and justified his peace negotiations with him. https://t.co/JxjjDOyUiI Arafat died at age 75, in a French military hospital near Paris. A French inquiry found no evidence that he was “murdered.“ https://t.co/NglMFP9ATk

No joke: Agnes Callamard, the new head of Amnesty International, once declared that Arafat was murdered, the Israelis did it, and President Shimon Peres admitted this. All lies. Note: Callamard was the U.N. Human Rights Council's “expert“ on assassinations. Not making this up. https://t.co/P5xzvylGqI https://t.co/qpvc9ifi1L

Ramsey Clark was the prototypical oppositional nihilist—a libertarian crank who religiously awakened to the belief that the United States was the primary evil in the world & zealously defended any fascists & mass murderers who declared themselves its enemy.https://t.co/Z3oPm4SLkR

Just learnt that Bob Dylan's "The Neighborhood Bully" was written about Israel after the wave of global condemnations for Israel's bombing of Iraq's nuclear reactor. The sarcasm of the lyrics is as relevant today as it was then: "He's criticised and condemned for being alive".
