It seems the @UN in Geneva does not recognize any issue with a serving senior UN official - @drtedros - using his position to advance the cause of a terrorist organization - that he belongs to - in it’s prosecution of a brutal war of secession.
If @DrTedros is now willing to use the @WHO’s global media reach occasioned by the #covid19 pandemic to pursue an agenda of rebellion, what do we think he was willing to do at the outset of this war, when his TPLF colleagues treacherously murdered 1000s of their colleagues?
All @UN staff are honour bound to uphold the principles of impartiality and independence and harm minimization.

What sort of example does @DrTedros’s partial advocacy on behalf of his criminal TPLF colleagues set for other UN officials?
What message is sent to the member nations of the @UN by senior officials such as UNSG @antonioguterres @UNReliefChief Martin Griffiths and UNHCHR @mbachelet turning a blind eye to this conduct? Is the @UN’s impartiality and independence just a “nice idea”?

One last thought.

The Govt. Of Ethiopia needs to step up its information game. A response to @DrTedros from @mfaethiopia or @PMEthiopia should have come immediately after the @WHO COVID19 briefing on 6th January.

This information attack was launched Xmas Eve for a reason.
Had the Govt. of Ethiopia done so, @DrTedros might have stopped then.

A lot of damage has been done in the period since.

Now that the Govt has responded another @PMEthiopia briefing is needed.
And that briefing should include a detailed briefing on the ongoing conflict initiated by TPLF in the period since the TPLF announced their faux-ceasefire/withdrawal.

If uninformed reporting is to be avoided on this the facts need to be clearly in the open.

Dr Tedros(not an MD)'s rescue effort for the TPLF, a terrorist group in which he was formerly the No. 3. leader stepped up on January 6th.

This is @DrTedros's twitter profile pinned tweet. @DrTedros has 1.6m followers thanks to his position as head of @WHO during a pandemic.
The video features a clip from a Covid-19 media briefing (Watch here >>…) held 6th January on COVIC-19 during which he addressed the issue of medical supplies in the Tigray Region. The briefing addressed media throughout the world.
His Tigray remarks come at the top of the briefing, just over nine minutes in. After talking about equity and the needs of developing countries, he introduces Tigray saying that "nowhere" are issues as acute as they are in humanitarian conflict crises.…

#MiddleEastRainEvent Update

Forecasts for the next phase in the ME Rain Event currently underway have changed considerably due in large part to the Storms in the Eastern Mediterranean not behaving as initially expected.

Here we see this morning's storm activity over Iraq.
Originally the storm over near the middle of this animation was forecast to move south over the North African coast and dissipate. How this storm evolved was always the key uncertainty in this event, and the revision in its path has significantly altered the impact of the event.
- Rainfall forecast over the Levant has increased
- Rainfall in the major (formerly dangerous) event over central Saudi has moderated.
- The event has slowed down - Forecast to end now on 22nd Jan rather than the 19th.

The @JoeNBC crew are looking very serious on the TV this morning. For good reason. @Sen_JoeManchin's decision to reflexively dismiss his President's call to change the filibuster is a big moment.

I'm with @morningmika & @TheRevAl on the @JoeBiden speech. It was necessary.
@JoeNBC @Sen_JoeManchin @morningmika @TheRevAl @JoeBiden Forcing @SenatorSinema and @Sen_JoeManchin to vote against this during Martin Luther King week is a very clever way to elevate this issue - as is needed - to the level of public interest which is needed to get this done.
@JoeNBC @Sen_JoeManchin @morningmika @TheRevAl @JoeBiden @SenatorSinema The future of the Union itself is at stake here. And doing this before the State of the Union makes a lot of sense. Congressional DNC constitutional wets who don't think that defending the constitution is their duty have no business calling themselves democrats.
