Questions need to be asked of the WHO and China

Spread the love

On Jan. 30, Tedros Ghebreyesus, the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) had this to say about China, a country that has been the source of a catastrophic pandemic infecting two million people worldwide and killing over 126,000 people while forcing the rest of us to live in self-isolation as we witness the world economy heading towards a depression:

“The Chinese government must be congratulated for the extraordinary measures it has taken to control the outbreak….. The speed with which China discovered the outbreak and isolated the virus, sequenced the genome, and shared it with the WHO and the world, are very impressive, beyond words. China is, in fact, setting a new standard for ‘outbreak response’ and this is not an exaggeration.”

None of this was true. I guess the WHO boss said it to please the regime that put him in power to be their spokesman in Geneva, Switzerland, where the most rotten part of the United Nations thrives with the connivance of the Swiss government, which also submits to China’s bidding.

Not only did Ghebreyesus praise China, he repeatedly demanded countries not to impose border controls, thus exacerbating the spread of the disease, while appearing to be more concerned about political correctness and the stigmatization of Chinese people.

His views were echoed in Canada by our Chief Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam, but were met with derision by Alberta’s Premier Jason Kenney who recently accused her of “repeating talking points from the PRC (People’s Republic of China).”

I have personally witnessed one example of Chinese influence at the UN in Geneva. It involved Balochistan, the country occupied by China’s erstwhile puppy, Pakistan. For over a decade, the exiled spokesman of the Balochistan Freedom Movement, Mehran Baluch worked through the corridors of UNHRC until the Chinese regime asked Switzerland to arrest him at Zurich Airport on Nov.16, 2017. Shortly after his week-long detention, Mehran Baluch was placed under a lifetime ban on entry to Switzerland.

So, who is the WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus? During his time in Ethiopia, the WHO chief was a member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), one of the many communist groups in the country who after the debacle of the USSR shed their Marxist labels and shifted loyalties towards China.

It didn’t take long for Ghebreyesus to show his true colours. Among his first acts was the proposal to appoint the murderous Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe as WHO “goodwill ambassador.”

While racism against people of Chinese ancestry is despicable – and I wrote about this in early February – we now hear news of Black Africans being beaten up in China with no effort by Beijing to counter it.

Martin Jacques is the author of “When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order.” In 2005, he wrote about the anti-Black racism inside China against then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after messages on social platforms described her as a “black ghost”, “black dog” and more.

Jacques wrote on a subject few dare to touch: the racism some Chinese garner towards the rest of us. He wrote about the “Middle Kingdom Mentality” where Chinese people commonly believe they are superior to those of darker skin. The attitude towards whites is much more complex.

So, where do we begin? I say, first, we take Manhattan then we take Berlin.

Let us isolate China and make an attempt to indict its rulers for crimes against humanity. Then let’s build a New Jerusalem where Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi inspire, not greed and wealth that can dissipate before our eyes.
