I saw this tweeted but Twitter doesn't let me ask if it's Russian operated or Armenian operated.

[AnNahar] Cypriot authorities pushed back 200 migrants colonists and refugees arriving from Leb ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers... aboard boats earlier this month, ignoring their claims for asylum while in some instances using violence and coercive tactics, a human rights ...which are usually open to widely divergent definitions... watchdog said on Tuesday.
Human Rights Watch accused Cypriot marine coppers of beating some migrants colonists and making threats. The group said coasties vessels attempted to swamp migrant boats by circling them at high speed and abandoned at least one boat at sea without food or fuel.
The watchdog said the accusations come from interviews with 15 Lebanese and Syrian nationals who tried to reach European Union ...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing... member Cyprus after setting sail from Tripoli ...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn... , Lebanon, aboard seven boats between Aug. 29 and Sept. 7.
According to Human Rights Watch, witnesses and victims on two boats returned to Lebanon said that Cyprus marine police handcuffed and beat individuals who resisted being returned.
The watchdog quoted one Lebanese national identified only by his first name who accused Cypriot police of using a cattle prod on him aboard a boat on Sept. 6 after he shouted at them to rescue a couple who jumped overboard.
The watchdog urged Cypriot judicial authorities to carry out an investigation into the allegations and prosecute anyone found to have committed any wrongdoing.
It said the European Commission should get Cyprus to respect the right of migrants colonists to seek asylum and to not return people to a place where their safety and freedom may be at risk.
"People who risk their lives and their children's lives by fleeing Lebanon by boat do so when they are truly desperate," Human Right Watch official Bill Frelick said. "They have a right to have their claims for international protection considered."
Cypriot officials did not immediately return calls for comment on the report.
The Cypriot government has said the ethnically split island nation is willing to offer safe haven to refugees, but has reached its limits in accepting "economic migrants colonists." Interior Minister Nicos Nouris said earlier this month that the Cypriot government is coordinating with Lebanese authorities to take back migrants colonists arriving from that country in line with international law.
Paris attacker wanted to set Charlie Hebdo offices on fire - prosecutor
[Jpost] The Pak man who maimed two people with a knife in front of the former offices of Charlie Hebdo ...A lefty French satirical magazine, home of what may well be the majority if the active testicles left in Europe... last week did not know that the satirical magazine had moved and wanted to set its offices on fire, the Gay Paree prosecutor said on Tuesday.
Prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard told a news conference the man carried three bottles of the flammable paint thinner White Spirit. He also said the man had operated under a false identity and that a photo of his passport on his phone showed that he was 25 years old, not 18 as he first said.
Confirming his identity as the thoroughly adult Zeheer Hassan Mehmood, hero of Mandi Bahauddin village, not mythical lad Hassan Ali, on whom the French government showered benefits without bothering to check.
The1980 Protocol on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Incendiary Weaponswas adopted on 10 October 1980 and entered into force on 2 December 1983. The Protocol places restrictions on the use of incendiary weapons as a means or method of warfare during an international armed conflict. It also applies to non-international armed conflict if a state party has ratified the 2001 amendment to the 1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW).
This may jive with reports that Blamtifa is, for lack of a better word, doxxing law enforcement and showing addresses, phone numbers, family and home pictures, etc. to police on the line. Stuff like, "While you are here, we could be there."
Update: The person who swung a metal bat at the Seattle cop’s head & cracked his helmet is suspected of being Jacob Greenberg, the son of former Democrat state lawmaker Laura Ruderman. https://t.co/k83inT0Cvk? https://t.co/QCLuvvmsik
[KOMONEWS] KOMO News has learned a teenager arrested for one of the fires set during recent riots on Capitol Hill is suspected of additional serious crimes. Ah, yes. Teens. You can always trust their political instincts.
This comes amid growing concern and frustration that people accused of serious crimes during protests aren't being held accountable. Keep votin' Democrat.
19-year-old Jacob Greenburg faced a judge Monday after Seattle Police said he lit dumpsters on fire during the ’Every Night Direct Demonstration’ last weekend. Now, according to court documents, Greenburg is a, "strong suspect for another arson attack on the East Precinct," where several people threw Molotov cocktails Sept. 1 at the precinct while officers were inside. Of course that's a mere allegation that he's a pyromaniac...
Court records said Greenburg is, "also a strong suspect in recent felony assault which is currently under investigation." Alleged pyromaniac and bully boy.
Two independent KOMO sources said he is the suspect who last week allegedly whacked an officer in the head with a metal baseball bat during a protest—cracking the officer’s helmet. Hmmm... Caught that one on video, did they?
The King County Prosecutor’s Office said based on the seriousness of investigations, they asked a judge to hold Greenburg on a $350,000 bail, but a judge set bail at $20,000 and Greenburg has been released. "Go and sin no more. Leave the money with the bailiff."
"It’s understandable that people in Seattle look at the vandalism, property destruction and violence and say, ’what’s happening here?’" said Casey McNerthney with the King County Prosecutor’s Office. "The most difficult part I think is for people who don’t understand the court system, who don’t realize that the prosecutor’s office wants to hold people who commit violent mostly peaceful acts in jail. Ultimately whether somebody stays in jail or not at a first appearance is up to a judge." Who do you think paid the bail?
In court Monday, Greenberg’s stepmom Laura Ruderman vouched for him saying she’s a former state politician. I'm not in the least surprised.
"He is basically a good kid, straight 'A' student," said Ruderman. "I’ve served the state in the legislature we will make sure he follows all the provision." There don't appear to be many."
Greenburg’s attorney, Jason Lantz, told KOMO News that in the chaos of the protests, Sherlocks have arrested the wrong man. "Y'got the wrong guy, see?"
"Let’s remember what the police think they have, is that in this chaotic situation with dozens, hundreds of people that have very generic clothing, that doesn’t mean they have the right person," said Lantz. "They made a snap judgment."
The prosecutor’s office said people who've been released can still be charged if more evidence comes in.
We had the video yesterday here and here (y’all noticed it was an important story and acted quickly on it), but the news today is how widely the video is being seen. Another tweet in the #CashFoBallots thread contains the comment that they’d got six million views in under 24 hours.
I always keep wishing for people like "untouchable" leftists were prosecuted and put in prison. Even though that may never happen I think that some day the beast they created will turn on them and devour them.
