  • Marwan Bishara
    Marwan Bishara “The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.” 14 hours ago
  • Josep Borrell
    Josep Borrell “Today, we are further tightening the restrictive measures against Russia's military and defence sector. We remain united in our determination to dent Russia's war machine and help Ukraine win its legitimate fight for self-defence.” 14 hours ago

“Taiwanese elections are a far more sensitive topic for Beijing than elections in other democracies as the democratic example being set by Taipei can be a more direct source of inspiration for people in mainland China. When you see that people from your own in-group have democracy and can elect their leaders, it can cause particular frustration with your own non-elected leaders. That makes Taiwanese elections a threat to the CPC [Communist Party of China].”
