Ok. Things are moving fast. 40% of users in Egypt have been unable to access Twitter in Egypt since last night @netblocks says. This is the first time Twitter is blocked since 2011 protests. The ball seems rolling. #Sisilies

Deporting Human Rights Watch (@hrw) Israel/Palestine country director @OmarSShakir would be a demonstration of Israeli hypocrisy. My weekly column is even more relevant now:

Outside the Israeli Supreme Court following a hearing to determine whether ⁦@OmarSShakir⁩ will be deported for his human rights advocacy. Hopefully the court, and new government, will weigh the harm to rights, and the implications for Israel’s values, if he is expelled

HRW works in 90+ countries around the world. It has covered Israel/West Bank for 30 yrs w/ unfettered access (though not Gaza). If Israel deports Omar, it’ll join the ranks of countries like Iran, Cuba & Venezuela who have barred @hrw researchers. #DeportingRights 4/5

In blaming political Islam for Egypt's protests, Sisi is using the same old card all Egypt's authoritarian leaders used before. He is a troubled liar & deceptive. Protests r about freedom & justice not about Islam or the MB. youtube.com/watch?v=7gBFpK​

More than 500 arrested in #Egypt protests, including women and children, lawyers defending protesters, journalists, and citizen videographers--who identified #French police vehicles being used to crush protests. Update from @ganobi as al-Sisi prepares to address UN.

My new take on Egypt's protests. The situation is very seriously tense. Massive crackdown, mass arrests. Many people fear another blood bath if security forces begin shooting protesters. hrw.org/news/2019/09/2​… How Far Will Sisi’s Government Go to Crush Protests?
