Read President Barack Obama's excellent and compassionate statement on President Donald Trump's withdrawal of the US from the #JCPOA (aka the Iran nuclear deal). Really take the time to read it.

Trump is a lying, deceitful, ignorant, and dangerous person and he's probably going to get us all killed. Even if he doesn't, he's seriously damaging American credibility, endangering hundreds of millions of Americans, Iranians, and other humans with his careless and short-sighted undiplomacy—all just to spite Obama (with whom he seems to be obsessed).

I love this simple little mosque I found near Wadi Feynan in #Jordan. It says "*Allahu akbar*" (god is great). The light before sunset was beautiful! #islam

I visited the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman last weekend. I can't get over how perfectly the light from the chandeliers illuminate the golden Arabic calligraphy at the altar. Impeccable attention to detail and incredibly beautiful. The text says in the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful (﷽). #Oman #Art #Photography

I love buying fabric in downtown #Amman, #Jordan. This iconic style of fabric is common in Jordan and used to come strictly from the textile industry in Aleppo but now comes from China. :(

"[Russian] Supreme court orders [Telegram] encryption keys to be handed over to security services."

Well that's no good. Even better if Telegram didn't have the keys to hand over in the first place. Y'all need to be using end-to-end encryption, which is not the default in Telegram, but is in Signal and WhatsApp. #privacy #encryption #russia

Today is a fine day to cry along with Qari Ahmed al-Ajamy ﷺ and the rest of the congregation to this beautiful recitation of sura 69 al-Haqqa (the reality) from the #Quran. 🕌 🕋

New open-source fonts for several scripts used in India! #Typography is getting good. And all these new fonts will look great on high DPI screens of the future.

Fighting Israeli Occupying Forces Is “Terrorism.” Boycotting Is “Anti-Semitism.” What’s Allowed?

Boycott, divest, and sanction #Israel. #BDS

Great video about #Bulgaria from Rick Steves. Captures some of my favorite places in the country with stunning film. How did he get such nice light in all these locations?! #travel #tourism
