Ist eine differenzierte #SeeWatch3 -Debatte möglich? Mein Versuch:
1. Grundsätzlich: #Seenotrettung ist kein Verbrechen. Im Gegenteil: Solange Menschen das Ertrinken droht, ist Rettung Pflicht. Daher werde ich die Initiative @janboehm @damitdasklaas @officiallyjoko unterstützen.
2. Leider wird humanitäre Hilfe von Schleppern brutal ausgenutzt. „Setz Dich in unser Schlauchboot, dann wirst Du gerettet und kommst nach Europa“. So werden hoffnungslose Menschen gelockt. In Gesprächen in Marokko mit verzweifelten Migranten aus Subsahara-Afrika wurde uns das
geschildert: „Dann setze ich mich in ein Boot und entweder bin ich tot oder werde gerettet und bekomme eine Perspektive in Europa. Hier sterbe ich jeden Tag ein Stück, so sterbe ich entweder ganz oder bekomme eine neue Chance.“ Der Ist-Zustand befördert diese perverse Lotterie.

#Libia 3 (mission impossible)

#Airports have become vital strategic assets for the many militias vying for #Libya’s vast natural resources.

#Trump would be better off listening to his own military commanders, who understand that #Haftar cannot so easily take control of all of #Libya militarily.

President #Trump’s support of a #Libyan warlord is a big mistake

1/1 #UNHCR in its recent press statement noted that Syrians at Rukban want to go home - and indeed that is true. Most Syrians want to return to their home in an ideal situation - but UNHCR has yet to qualify that statement with any statement of the risks. unhcr.org/news/briefing/…
2/9The intention survey carried out at Rukban has yet to be published, but UNHCR has already emphasized “most want to go” - this requires further evaluation. First, many Syrian IDPs fear returning to regime areas because, as resident at Rukban told me, it would be “suicide”.
3/9 Many Syrians at Rukban initially fled Russian/Syrian bombing campaigns in Aleppo, Homs, and other urban areas as early as 2015. That is nearly 4 years in protracted displacement, spurred by fear that return would mean illegal detainment, conscription, or even death.

Hezbollah in Lebanon: US hegemony is over ejmagnier.com/2018/11/21/hez…
#Uk and #Germany have held secret meetings with #Hezbollah leaders during the visits of their official delegations to Beirut.

In #Iraq, #ISIS grew under the watchful and complaisant eyes of the #US establishment that considered ISIS a strategic asset, oblivious to how this unscrupulous policy would backfire against its interests in the Middle East.

Envie de comprendre l'origine des "#Réfugiés #Palestiniens" ? C'est par ici.

Tout commence le 15 mai 1948 quand 7 #armées #arabes envahissent la #Palestine, rejoignant les arabes locaux pour attaquer #Israël. Leur but : jeter les #juifs à la mer.

⬇️Déroulez ci-dessous ⬇️
#Israël, qui n'a alors qu'un jour et ne compte que 500.000 habitants, n'est pas prêt à la #guerre : des #civils armés de #fusils, un embryon d'armée.. Beaucoup des juifs qui sont là sont d'ailleurs des rescapés de la #Shoah : on est moins d'un an après la traversée de l'#Exodus.
En face, 40 millions d'arabes prêts à en découdre, mais surtout, 7 armées entraînées, équipées de tanks, d'artillerie, d'avions de combats. Le rapport de force est de l'ordre de 1 contre 30...

Mais quand David affronte Goliath, c'est toujours David qui l'emporte.

@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi In theory, Indonesia is responsible.
(#IDG=Indo immigration dept)
However, Indonesia is the 3rd country, with #Manus & #Nauru, that Australia pays to use refugees as 'rocks to block the sea'.
Aus pays #IOM to run refugee community housing & 13 detention centres in #Indonesia.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi #UNHCR Indonesia received less & less funding, none this year, to process refugees in Indonesia for resettlement.
Australia took this 'humanitarian aid' & gave it to #IOM to detain refugees to force voluntary returns.
Now IOM had funding cut, new refugees sleeping in streets.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi So big backlog of asylum seekers awaiting UNHCR processing due to no funds.
No new admissions to #IOM or even detention in Indonesia since April 2018.
Refugees queue to get IN to detention, live in streets outside IDC's. No money, no accommodation, live on handouts.
