A national treasure who elevates the name of the kingdom of Jordan. A success model for some of the brightest young journalists in the land. Imagine what #AhlamTamimi must have done to get that kind of star-treatment.

Actually there's no need to imagine: justice.gov/opa/pr/individโ€ฆ
Obama's second term had just started when @TheJusticeDept began its efforts to bring #Jordanian bomber @AhlamTamimi to US justice. Isn't it time for Congress to examine the truth behind all the shabby posturing?

Please share this thread and especially this video clip with the offices of your Senators and your Member of the US Congress. Outrageously #AhlamTamimi, the world's most wanted female fugitive, remains free today, still out of the reach of the US, #Jordan's strongest ally.

#Palestine:
Al-Qassam warned #Israel with an ultimatum until 18:00 today to withdraw from al-Aqsa and release all prisoners. This indicates once more that Palestine is united and that #Gaza is using its military capability to support the Palestinians everywhere on the territory.
Standing with #Palestine at this moment is a responsibility of all women and men. We are in the 21st century, and this ๐Ÿ‘‡is unacceptable. The world should stand against it.

The Arab leaders who enjoy official diplomatic-commercial relationship and normalised with #Israel are also included I presume #UAE #Bahrein #Qatar #Morocco #Oman #Jordan #Sudan #Egypt

#Pakistan has no moral right to talk about #Palestinian
Pakistan is an opportunist country when their interest was with #Jordan they killed several thousand Palestinians, When they needed they took help of #Israel as well.

Here is the true face of Pakistan
#IndiaStandsWithIsrael
Pakistanis under Zia-ul-Haq massacred 25,000 Palestinians in a SINGLE year in Jordan (1969-70 ).

Nothing that bloody has happened between Israel and the Palestinians in the entire conflict till now.
Records from #Jordan also confirm that General Zia-Ul-Haq was involved in "Black September". Image

The two computer models which are known for their prowess in predicting cyclones continue to forecast cyclone formation in the Arabian Sea in coming days.

The question of whether these cyclones will form hangs over today's #MiddleEast and #HornOfAfrica rainfall forecasts.
This image shows the Arabian Sea area where the GFS and ECMWF models are both expecting cyclone formation within the next 10 days, at different times and in different places.
Here's the GFS 9th May model forecast for today showing formation starting on Friday and landfall five days later.

Today's Rainfall Forecasts for the #HornOfAfrica and #MiddleEast follow in this thread.

Below you see the Ethiopian Highlands from this morning and including most of the #BlueNile #GERD #Abay watershed . The large storm on the left is mostly over Sudan. On the RHS is #Lalibela.
Here you see an animation of the storm starting up this morning.
This satellite image (@NASA Modis ) shows the area in the Arabian Sea which computer models indicate could generate two cyclones in coming days. You can see the latest GFS forecast runs for those cyclones in the attached thread.

We have a shift to on-shore westerly wind in the Horn of Africa region today, which, I confess means little to me beyond being a new thing in the data. But it seems significant, as there is more water over the sea.

Today's rainfall/cyclone forecasts for the region follow.
Here's a view from this afternoon & the direction of travel is pretty stable. For me onshore winds bringing wet air towards mountains means lots more rain. If anyone is aware of the usual timing of this switch I would be interested.
Here are African 10-Day Accumulated rain forecasts. All of which now show the impact of the two Cyclones which are now in the forecast window.

#Ethiopia the #RedSea coast of #SaudiArabia #Yemen #Somalia and #Oman all experienced spectacular thunderstorm activity today.

Today's #HornOfAfrica and #ArabianStorm rainfall forecasts follow:
First up today, long range @NOAA forecast models are now forecasting a cyclone may form in the Arabian Sea, providing a timely warning of the risk to those in the region. See thread here >> Image
The most important thing about these forecasts is to understand they are an early warning system about the possibility of a cyclone forming, not a forecast that one will do so.

If a threat materialises you will see official advice and warnings here >>

The Horn of Africa this morning @NASA worldview, got a great view and more pictures will be included in today's rainfall forecast thread for #Ethiopia #HoA and the #MiddleEast.

Today's forecasts follow.
Here's the first. A view mostly of #Sudan, capturing both the #WhiteNile and #BlueNile as well as part of the Nile below Sudan on its way to Egypt. On the right hand side Lake Tana can be seen through the clouds.

If you look very carefully you may be able to see #GERD.
This view which captures the area below that in the previous image has borders on it to make it easier to see where the abundant green in the firsy image in this thread is located. The rains of the past few weeks appear to be doing God's work in the region.

Today's #ArabianStorms went in a different direction during the day, but ended up in a familiar place in the end.

Today's #MiddleEast and #Ethiopia #HornOfAfrica rain forecasts follow in the thread below.
In the animation above you can see a flow of clouds from Sudan to Oman. This flow actually originates to the South West in the Central African Republic. Here you see the CAR to Khartoum leg of the journey.
Over the day this stream of moisture intensified powering storms in Oman, which then split into two streams, one heading north over Iran and one to the East to India.

At a time when justice-minded people are expressing outrage at lethally antisemitic violence, disingenuous judges, obstructive politicians, apathetic media - a sincere request from a murdered child's parents to please stand with us via our petition: change.org/ExtraditeTamimi
Please share. Tamimi, giggling in this video, is the world's most wanted female fugitive. She's sheltered from US law enforcement - which has pursued her since 2013 - by #Jordan, world's 3rd-largest recipient of US foreign aid and in breach of its Extradition Treaty with the US.
The extradition of admitted bomber #AhlamTamimi, sought since 2013 by @TheJusticeDept but thwarted by #Jordan and the inaction of most members of Congress and US officials, has few heroes as @TheDemocrats @HouseDemocrats @HouseGOP @SenateForeign @SenateGOP @SenateDems can confirm
