Wow. Germany not at all bothered about the optics from shutting down the Palestine Congress and deporting a British citizen on Friday.
Interior Minister Nancy Faeser on Xitter:
"It is good that the Berlin police have announced a tough crackdown on the so-called Palestine Congress in Berlin. We are keeping a very close eye on the Islamist scene."

many folks already mentioned how opportune it is that there is no gun selling in Australia and I could not agree more

@Heliograph So many people seemed desperate for it to be "Islamic terror" yet it turns out the only Muslim involved was one of the security guards who saved people's lives 🤷‍♀️

Listening to a podcast about the Bronze Age collapse and it sounds like the guys are talking about the news 😐

Deeply unsurprised to see all the reporting of Iran's strikes on Israel as being "unprecedented" and "audacioius" as if they just got bored on a Saturday night and thought fuck it.

@nusher Sure, it's exactly what Israel wanted Iran to do, but there was no way Tehran wasn't going to respond, no matter how ineffectively. I wonder whether this was just fireworks and the real trouble is brewing. Biden's already told BN he's not intervening, so that'll just provoke/enable Israel to go in harder on Gaza, the West Bank and southern Lebanon.

@OliverNoble I can't see anything about Iran having the right to defend itself either 🤔

@projektionsyta
Iran's the bogeyman and has been for a long time (specifically since the collapse of the JCPOA but, in America's case, probably since the hostage crisis in 79). It's the biggest country in the region, Israel's bête noire. If the west were to show any support for Iran now, they'd be taking the blame for letting Israel strike Damascus in the first place.
Only some countries are allowed to "defend themselves" it would seem.

@Thebratdragon @OliverNoble Agreed. The supplies might be more indirect this time but they'll be there.
We've totally fucked over Ukraine and we're going to feel it sooner than later.

@nusher Peace and diplomacy are anathema to BN - his only way to stay in power it to continue the war. The entire Israeli military, half the government and the security services are absolutely rabid in their hatred of Iran and they've been trying to goad the US into a proxy war for decades.

@Hadenuff Russia and parts of Syria. Assad may be in power but there are still pockets of resistance and who knows which side they'll take. The whole region's a fucking mess. I'm surprised Iraq has stayed quiet tbh.

@Thebratdragon @OliverNoble Not for the first time, I'm asking what the fuck happened to the alien invasion. Seems like quite a calming prospect right now.

@Thebratdragon @projektionsyta @nusher True, but how much actual hardware or manpower has it got to spare? I suppose it's beneficial at the UN ...

@Thebratdragon @OliverNoble Ants and bees are pretty clever - if they team up with corvids and cephalopods we're screwed. Can't say I'm that bothered tbh.

No idea how it popped into my brain - I've not heard or thought about it in years. It's one of my favourite of all their tracks, and sorely underrated imo.

@chrisgerhard @ChrisMayLA6 He should be using those mad skillz at the security services 🙄

@BashStKid Literally no one exists for David Cameron except David Cameron.
I don't think it's a bad thing to have forgotten about Grant Shapps tbh.

Will the Joe Biden of 2019 have a word with the Joe Biden of 2024 in the Situation Room?
I doubt it.

@fkamiah17@toot.wales avatar

@randahl Still sending all the weapons though, so he's participating by proxy. Watch BN have a tantrum and "strategically target" something/someone else to provoke a response.

@Bampa Except Biden's in charge now, he's had months to de-escalate via diplomacy or arms embargos. Even in the two weeks since Israel broke the Vienna Convention, he's done nothing. This is a former Pentagon adviser to Obama. She's talking about Tehran and Tel Aviv of course, but the same can be said of Brussels, Washington and London.
