CHUCKLES SCHUMER IS LAUGHING AT ALL THE TURMOIL.
"I PRETEND TO HATE REPUBLICANS," HE EXPLAINED TO THESE REPORTERS. "BUT I VOTE WITH THEM ALL THE TIME ON REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF -- LIKE THE IRAQ WAR. I ALSO HATE PALESTINIANS. THESE ARE REAL GOOD TIMES FOR ME. INSTEAD OF BEING CALLED OUT FOR MY REACTIONARY POSITIONS, EVEN A LEFTIST DEMOCRAT RUSHES TO APPLAUD ME."
Truth tellers are rare in the world.
They are even more rare when it comes to truth telling re: Iraq.
Moonnar27 has been a truth teller. (Here's a Tweet we included here last January by Moonnar27.)
فقط انسخو هذا الهشتاق الانكليزي #Iraqi_army_crimes وارفقوا معه صور وفديوات جرائم الجيش الشيعي بالعراق اوصلوا صوتنا للعالم بكل الطرق لاتسكتوا
Her truths have been brave and important.
She has been off Twitter for over two weeks now -- her account killed.
As the silence continues, people are worrying.
Does anybody know @moonnor27 personally? Her life may be in danger. People have been trying to contact her phone & there's no response...
Hayder al-Abadi is watered down Nouri al-Maliki.
It wouldn't be at all surprising if Hayder sought out to silence her.
Even less surprising if some Shi'ite militia did so.
Moonnor27 may have just gotten sick of Tweeting.
I'm sure the awful news she sees wears on her more than any of us could guess.
But we're opening with this concern because there is good reason to worry and she's someone we have long noted.
Apparently once again sister @moonnor27 account appears to have been disabled
An Iraqi activist goes silent.
Her Twitter account is (again) killed.
Where's the global interest if not concern?
