Hundreds of Facebook employees demand a change in Palestine policy
[AlAhram] The letter, which was first reported on by the London-based Financial Times daily, urges Facebook’s leadership to adopt measures that ensure pro-Paleostine content is not censored or removed

About 200 employees of the social media giant Facebook have signed a letter urging the company’s administration to address concerns that pro-Paleostine content on the social media platform are being censored, Paleostinian news agency (WAFA) said.

The Facebook employees urged their leadership "to order a third-party audit of enforcement actions around Arab and Moslem content, and to refer a post by Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu describing Paleostinian civilians as murderous Moslems to its independent oversight board", the FT said.

The letter further calls on Facebook executives to set up an internal task force to "investigate and address potential biases" in both its human and automated content moderation systems, the FT reported.

"As highlighted by employees, the press and members of Congress, and as reflected in our declining app store rating, our users and community on the lam feel that we are falling short on our promise to protect open expression around the situation in Paleostine," the letter reportedly said.

"We believe Facebook can and should do more to understand our users and work on rebuilding their trust," it continued.

During last month’s Israeli aggression on Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
, Facebook labelled words used by Paleostinian users, such as "martyr" and "resistance", as incitements to violence. It also took down posts about the al-Aqsa Mosque after mistakenly associating the holy site with a ’terrorist’ organization, according to United States media reports.

-War on Police-
Three police killings in the US: Is there a better way?

#1  The darkest sin of progressives and their fellow travelers is the lie formed with partial truth.
The cherry-pick some parts of an event, statement or report but leave out things that don't fit their narrative and opinion. Often it shades the truth or even reverses it. This is an example, wherein the unstated context is that these situations uniformly involve violent, if not threateningly lethal behavior which didn't stop when a police officer arrives. Expecting the police to avoid taking a life while the perpetrator appears to be attempting to do so is profoundly unrealistic. Talking people down depends on proximity, immanence of the threat and sanity or the absence of drug altered thinking. Civilized behavior requires cessation of violence or the threat thereof, feral behavior requires force to stop it. The better way is to respect the police and avoid situations that require their response!

The Grand Turk
Turkish President Vows to Save Sea from 'Sea Snot' Outbreak
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
’s president promised Saturday to rescue the Marmara Sea from an outbreak of "sea snot" that is alarming marine biologists and environmentalists.

A huge mass of marine mucilage, a thick, slimy substance made up of compounds released by marine organisms, has bloomed in Turkey's Marmara, as well as in the adjoining Black and Aegean Seas.

Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than there are in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really most important...
said untreated waste dumped into the Marmara Sea and climate change had caused the sea snot bloom. Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city with some 16 million residents, and five other provinces, factories and industrial hubs border the sea.

Marine mucilage has reached unprecedented levels this year in Turkey. It is visible above the water as a slimy gray sheet along the shores of Istanbul and neighboring provinces. Underwater videos showed suffocated coral covered with sea snot.

Erdogan said he instructed the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization to coordinate with relevant institutions, municipalities and universities. Teams are inspecting waste water and solid waste facilities, along with other potential sources of pollution, he said.

"We will save our seas from this mucilage calamity, leading with the Marmara Sea," Erdogan said. "We must take this step without delay."

Marine experts say that human waste and industrial pollution is choking Turkey’s seas. They say the rise in water temperatures from climate change is contributing to the problem.

Iraq
Sadr, Barzani Seeking Alliance to Lead New Iraq Govt
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] Iraqi parties are scrambling to forge new alliances that may create changes in the current political arena or at least revive old partnerships as the country edges closer to holding early parliamentary elections in October.

The instability in the country may, however, force the postponement of the elections. This possibility has not impeded the parties, which are preparing themselves to both hold the elections on time or bracing for their delay to their constitutional date of May 2022.

Amid these preparations, a delegation from the Sadr movement held talks in Erbil this week with head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Masoud Barzani and President of the Kurdistan Region Nechirvan Barzani. The delegation was led by Nasar al-Rubaye, head of the movement's political body.

The surprise meeting between the largest Shiite party, the Sadrist movement, and largest Kurdish party, the (KDP), may pave the way for an alliance that may upend the political scene in Iraq. Whoever joins the alliance will have the upper hand in the formation of the new government after the polls.

The Sadrists are expected to emerge as victors in the elections, and therefore hold sway over the formation of the government or appointment of a prime minister, who does not necessarily have to be a member of their movement.

Beyond the government level, a Sadrist-Kurdish alliance may hold sway over the three presidencies (president, prime minister and parliament speaker) in Iraq. According to the 2003 constitution, the president is always a Kurdish figure, the speaker is always a Sunni Arab and prime minister a Shiite.

If influential Shiite and Sunni figures join the potential Sadrist-KDP alliance, then they may control who is named to the three presidencies, regardless of their sect, confirmed observers.

To clarify, they cited Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi, leader of the largest Sunni bloc in the western provinces, openly speaking of the desire of Sunni Arabs to assume the presidency. In return, the position of parliament speaker would be occupied by a Kurdish figure.

The sticking point would be persuading the two major Kurdish parties in the Kurdistan Region — the KDP in Erbil and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan in Sulaymaniyah — to agree to the switch before even agreeing with Baghdad on the issue.

More time, however, is needed for alliances to take shape.

Another noticeable development, was head of the Hikma movement, Ammar al-Hakim’s visit to the disputed Kirkuk province. His movement does not hold sway in the province, which is predominantly Kurdish and Turkmen with a Christian minority, but he may be attempting to garner its support during the polls.

MP warns of ''ISIS families' vengeance''
[SHAFAQ] MP of Sadiqoun bloc, Muhammad Karim al-Baldawi, warned of the return of "terrorist" activities after transferring ISIS families from al-Hol camp to al-Jada'a camp, south of Nineveh.

Al-Baldawi told Shafaq News Agency, "The return of ISIS families from al-Hol camp to Nineveh is the most dangerous decision that threatens security and social stability in Nineveh since the liberation of the governorate four years," describing the families as "dangerous death bombs whose repercussions cannot be contained in the future."

"The returning families still carry the ideas of terrorism and extremism and the motive of blind Dire Revenge for the death of their relatives, and they cannot be integrated into society in any way," calling on the security and intelligence services to develop "intelligent and societal plans to contain any danger or threat caused by ISIS's families and relatives."

Al-Baldawi called on the council of Representatives to take, "a firm and serious stance to protect the djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
community and Nineveh Governorate from any attempts to build a new hard boy generation that represents a dangerous mixture of terrorist organizations that spread killing and destruction, most notably al-Qaeda and ISIS."

The Iraqi government had transferred 100 ISIS families from al-Hol camp in Syria to al-Jada'a camp, south of Mosul.

The decision was met with widespread popular and political rejection.

Al-Kadhimi, Barzani agree on protecting the borders
[SHAFAQ] Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani agreed with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi to continue cooperation to protect borders areas.
Something the Merkin government can't do...
According to a statement by Barzani’s office, al-Kadhimi condemned the attack launched by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) bully boyz against the Peshmerga forces, expressing "sincere condolences to President Barzani."

The statement said the two sides "agreed on the necessity of continuing cooperation and coordination between the federal forces and the Peshmerga to protect the borders, restore stability in those areas and prevent any interference."

Earlier, Kurdistan Parliament rejected the war option, calling on all parties to distance their conflicts from the Kurdistan Region territories and preserve its illusory sovereignty.

In a statement, the Parliament's Presidium offered condolence for the death of five Peshmerga members, wishing a speedy recovery for the maimed.

The statement called on the PKK and The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
to distance the Kurdistan Region from their wars, resort to peaceful political solutions, respect the institutions of the Kurdistan Region and preserve the illusory sovereignty of the Kurdistan Region and Iraq.

For its part, the Peshmerga Affairs Committee in Kurdistan Parliament said in a statement, "The Workers' Party has become a threat to the Kurdistan Region under the pretext of the war with Turkey, while young men from the region were martyred many times. This conflict has become a reason for evacuating and destroying hundreds of villages in the border areas."

The committee called on the party to relocate their conflict in the Ottoman Turkish territories, not endanger the region's gains and illusory sovereignty, and respect its borders, security, and stability.

The Ministry of Peshmerga in the Kurdistan Region confirmed earlier today that the Kurdistan Workers' Party targeted the Peshmerga forces in Mount Matin in Duhok Governorate, causing five deaths and four injuries among the Peshmerga forces, and the death of three PKK fighters.

Sinwar says next fight will reshape region, denies IDF crippled tunnel network
[IsraelTimes] Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood,’s Gazoo chief claims only 3% of so-called ’metro’ ruined, after Al Jazeera airs new footage from subterranean passages.

Yahya Sinwar on Saturday said Hamas had only displayed half its strength during the most recent round of fighting with Israel, and denied the Israeli military’s claim that a significant portion of the terror group’s tunnel network had been destroyed.

Unsourced TV report: Hamas unlikely to fire rockets in response to march, but could take other steps
[IsraelTimes] A Hamas, one of the armed feet of the Moslem Brüderbund millipede, representative in East Jerusalem is warning Israel against holding the rescheduled flag march — and against its passage via Damascus Gate and the Old City — on Thursday. Hamas in East Jerusalem is also calling on Arab Israelis and East Jerusalemites to "protect al-Aqsa."

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Iran: election candidate threatens to try rival for treason during TV debate
[Guardian] Iran’s presidential election candidates have engaged in a fiery and bruising first television debate, during which one promised to put another, the former governor of the central bank, on trial for treason and ban him and other members of the government from leaving the country.
Good. Let's you and him go fight.
The threat to put Abdolnaser Hemmati on trial was made on Saturday by the former leader of the Revolutionary Guards Mohsen Rezaei, currently secretary of the Expediency Council. He claimed the Iranian currency had been devalued so much by Hemmati that "the train of the revolution has turned into a scooter".

The new president will replace Hassan Rouhani, a pragmatist
Either the Twelfth Imam has appeared or he hasn't
who twice won landslide votes against hardline opponents after campaigning to open up Iran’s economy to the world. Rouhani had only limited success, after the US abandoned a nuclear agreement and reimposed sanctions.
So what did he do with all our cash?
The narrow focus on the state of the economy had the effect of putting Hemmati on the back foot as five conservative-inclined candidates ganged up on him to portray him as the incumbent and blame him for his stewardship, especially for high inflation and the collapse of the exchange rate.

Hemmati hit back by saying most of the other candidates were simply cover for Raisi and dared them to give an undertaking they would not pull out of the race before polling day. He said he was proud he had not allowed Iran to go the way of Venezuela, adding he was standing to prevent the country’s economy becoming the same as North Korea’s, a reference to the heavy emphasis on state planning in his rival’s proposals.
Wait. I thought being like Venezuela was a good thing. Ask Bernie.
He ridiculed Rezaei’s remarks that the country’s foreign exchange earnings could be boosted by taking western soldiers hostage.
There's a guy who's thinking outside of the box. But why not Chinese soldiers, I wonder, or Russians?
