Still a Pro-Life Nation

The African nation of Ethiopia has a Christian history which dates back to the New Testament, even before Saul’s conversion. In the Acts of the Apostles, we learn that Philip baptized an Ethiopian eunuch who was a member of the court of Queen Candace. Happily, Ethiopia has not abandoned its ancient roots in the faith: about 63% of Ethiopians are Christians, the majority of whom belong to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Ethiopia has a population of over 84 million, which makes the Eastern African nation the 14th largest country in the world. By way of contrast, the State of California has a population of just over 38 million people. But Ethiopia has plenty of room: they have a population density of 79 people per square kilometer, compared to 260 people per square kilometer in the much richer United Kingdom. This fact is often overlooked by those who look at Africa and see only too many people, and view babies as obstacles to “progress.”

With the 13th highest fertility rate in the world, Ethiopians have an average of 5.39 children per woman, making the nation a prime target of Western population controllers.

On the Need to Defend Pro-Life Culture

EthioFamily

When I traveled to Ethiopia this past December I spoke with bishops, students and pro-life leaders who, while dedicated to defending life, were surprised just how far reaching and organized the population control agenda had become in Africa. For many it was a wakeup call that a renewed and refocused pro-life movement is needed in Ethiopia.

As in dozens of other countries in Africa and around the world, Human Life International (HLI) uses its limited resources to support the local pro-life mission in Ethiopia. In many African countries, HLI is the only organization providing valuable pro-life training and resources. Father Aloysius Mugisha, AJ (a priest of the order of Apostles of Jesus), is HLI’s country director in Ethiopia, and was my generous host. He is a native Ugandan, but has come to know and love Ethiopia and her people. He speaks the native Amharic language fluently, and helped to make sure people understood the very serious situation I described in my presentations and conversations.

During my first full day in Ethiopia, I offered Mass for 30 leaders of Ethiopia for Life, a dynamic group of students from various universities in the capital of Addis Ababa. In my homily, I reflected on the life of St. Leo the Great, who saved Rome from a barbarian invasion in 452 A.D.

As in St. Leo’s day, there is a vicious type of barbarism that we find today – attacks on the most vulnerable human life. The new barbarians, however, are very sophisticated, and claim not to be bound by the moral restrictions of the past. Since population control fell out of favor decades ago, they now wage the same war against the people of developing nations with the falsely inspiring language of “reproductive justice,” “maternal health,” and “safe motherhood.” Yet their methods are exactly the same: abortion, contraception, euthanasia, basically any means of eliminating the “unwanted.”

The Germans also thought of themselves as very sophisticated. Before World War II, their society was the most literate in the world. But even before the Nazis came to power, these “sophisticated” barbarians were euthanizing mental patients and others with various imperfections. Their aim was to create a master race, and some of the most eminent scientists were involved.

This was also the aim of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the organization now known as Planned Parenthood, to create “a race of thoroughbreds.” Marie Stopes, a friend and colleague of Sanger, also was a racist and eugenicist. She founded the Society for Constructive Birth and Racial Progress, which eventually became the eponymous organization that is most active in Africa today.

I asked the students to pray to Pope St. Leo the Great and ask him to help us overcome this new barbarism, that we might create a culture in which life is respected at every stage, and to preserve the faith. Right action follows from right belief. The false philosophies of the 19th century led to the atrocities of the 20th, as well as to the lack of respect for human life that we see today.

Spreading the Word

After Mass, I gave a presentation to the students on the population control agenda. Bishop Lisane-Christos Matheos Semahun, Auxiliary Bishop of Addis Ababa, also attended. They were alarmed to hear that Ethiopia was one of the 13 countries targeted by the United States for population control since the 1970s. On December 10, 1974, the United States National Security Council promulgated a top secret document entitled National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), also called The Kissinger Report. It was subtitled “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” Declassified in 1989, the document laid out a detailed strategy by which the United States would aggressively promote population control in developing nations in order to regulate (or have better access to) the natural resources of these countries.

The document stated“The U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying countries.” Ethiopia was one of 13 nations named that would be primary targets of U.S.-funded population control efforts. Other countries named were India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia.

According to NSSM-200, elements of the implementation of population control programs could include: a) the legalization of abortion; b) financial incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates; c) indoctrination of children; and d) mandatory population control, and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless an LDC implements population control programs.

You might ask why a policy adopted during the Nixon administration is relevant today, especially since it is unlikely that most of today’s bureaucrats and population control advocates even know of its existence. It is relevant because the assumptions and recommendations of this troubling document are now those of the international development industry, which is funded by governments of wealthy nations and Western multi-billion dollar foundations. A policy that was classified due to the very reasonable assumption by its authors that there would be an uproar if it was know that the most powerful government in the world saw the people of developing nations as obstacles to its own flourishing, is now the basic framework of the international development industry, and its strategies and tactics are now considered “best practices,” just as the language used in their implementation is now “pro-woman” rather than “population control.”

Our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia and other developing nations deserve to know that those bearing gifts from wealthy nations have an agenda. There are often strings attached to the huge financial grants dangled in front of the leaders of these nations, and these strings will ultimately tie down, and not empower, Africans.

A Strong Clergy can Make a Difference

Bishop Semahun was so alarmed at the array of forces seeking to limit the population of Ethiopia he pledged to focus the rest of his Episcopal ministry on the defense of human life and the family. Thankfully, the Archbishop of Addis Ababa, Berhaneyesus Demerew Souraphiel, C.M., has also been very supportive of the pro-life ministry in Ethiopia. The support of the Catholic Church in Africa is essential in responding to the threats of population control and the anti-life agenda.

While pro-life leaders, including many Catholic clergy, are well aware of the great evils posed by the Culture of Death, it’s hardly possible for any one person or one group to confront and defeat them all. The pro-life movement in Africa is growing, but supporters of their efforts don’t have the billions of dollars spent every year to suppress the Gospel of Life and undermine Africa’s traditionally life-loving culture.

As we go through our daily activities, we should be mindful and keep in prayer the students of Ethiopia for Life, as well as Father Aloysius, Ethiopia’s bishops, and all those working diligently to strengthen a Culture of Life in nations that still value children. May they have the courage of St. Leo to stand against the forces of evil in our day.

HLI Tanzania: Model for Pro-Life Action

Once you attack children, you attack the nation… We don’t need condoms. We don’t need contraception. We don’t need abortion

Emil Hagamu is one of millions of Africans who increasingly wonder what wealthy Western nations want from Africa. All over the continent, the influence of these nations is visible: trucks, billboards and project signs from NGOs that want Africans to stop having children. Do these wealthy nations – nations that experienced their most dramatic and sustained economic growth while having higher fertility rates, but are now struggling as their birth rates decrease – really expect Africans to believe that by limiting births, they will join the “developed world?”

Human Life International shares this concern, which is why we work with Emil and other African leaders to make the case for a true Culture of Life – one in which traditional marriage and family are protected and every vulnerable person at any stage of his life is cherished and defended from conception to natural death.

In Tanzania, this has been Emil’s concern for 20 years. Like HLI’s other partners around the world, Emil has been organizing, training and equipping local leaders to defend life and family in their own communities, their own language, and with their own cultural wisdom.

  • We ORGANIZE communities by inviting them to join us in the battle for life and family. When you see a march for life in Africa, an HLI affiliate is usually coordinating and leading the effort.
  • We TRAIN local church and community leaders to recognize the tactics and strategies of anti-life NGOs, and to effectively respond through advocacy and education.
  • We EQUIP communities with the knowledge and materials to spread the Gospel of Life, and to promote a view of society based in a view of the human person and the human community that is directed toward authentic, integral human development. Our educational materials promote the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death, the true nature of marriage and the family, fertility awareness as a healthy, inexpensive and natural means to achieve or postpone pregnancy, and other pro-life themes.

Seven GMO Loaded Brands You Should Avoid Buying – Gross

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 29, 2014

Ever wonder which companies you should totally avoid, whether it’s because they create low-quality food or because they infringe on our food rights? Below you will see 6 huge players in the food industry to avoid and boycott. You can boycott their products for the best effect or you can petition them and ask them to stop throwing money at the anti-labeling campaigns. 

Here are 6 huge conglomerates aiming to ruin your right to know what is in your food.

1. Pepsi-Co

800px-Ethiopian_Pepsi_(5065648832)This behemoth has hardly been touched by consumer frustration with GMOs, even it is just as guilty as many other companies when it comes to food secrets. This is also the company who had to settle a $9 million class-action lawsuit over Naked Juice false advertising – claiming the products were ‘all natural’ and ‘100% juice’ when they are actually full of GMOs. Pepsi-Co was also revealed as one of the big spenders behind the anti-labeling campaigns illegally filtered through the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association. The company topped the list with a $1,620,899 donation to keep you in the dark about GMOs.

2. Kellogg’s

Kellogg-chomps_crpo-e1416442461834This company is downright shady. Kellogg’s company recently paid $5 million to settle a class-action lawsuit for falsely labeling Kashi products as “All Natural” or “Nothing Artificial.” They have also contributed a total of $1.6 million to defeat GMO labeling initiatives. In a consumer lab test, it was also found that Kellogg’s uses 100% GMO corn in several of their breakfast cereals and other products. Kashi products even made it onto the Non-GMO project’s list of safe foods, but they aren’t safe at all.

3. General Mills

general-mills_cereal-e1416442450168GM says: “We don’t use genetically modified ingredients in original Cheerios. Our principal ingredient has always been whole grain oats – and there are no GMO oats. We use a small amount of corn starch in cooking, and just one gram of sugar per serving for taste. But our corn starch comes from non-GMO corn, and we use only non-GMO pure cane sugar.” This is only in one type of cereal they sell, though. Only two percent of the company’s shareholders favor a complete GMO ban. GM’s CEO says, he “sees no reason within the United States to bar ingredients grown from biotech crops.”

4. Nestle/Gerber Co

nestle_alphaThis company puts GMOs in baby food. Need I say more? The company removed GMOs from baby formulas in South Africa after public pressure forced them to, but it continues to put them in American-sold versions. Formulas like Good Start and others contain GM soybean oil, GM soy lecithin, and GM maltodextrin, as well as corn syrup derived from GM crops. Along with Pepsi-Co and Coca-Cola, the company spent over $1 million to defeat GMO labeling in Washington, and more to defeat labeling in Oregon.

5. Hershey’s

hershey-bars_crop-e1416440403619Just how much will you like that chocolate bar after finding out that Hershey’s donated $800,000 to defeat California’s Prop 37 and Washington’s I-522, and another $500,000 to defeat this year’s initiatives in Oregon and Colorado? The company has only one organic brand—Dagoba. Time for a boycott? After all, there are hundreds of non-GMO fair-trade chocolate makers out there. Try some of these non-GMO sweets instead.

6. Coca-Cola

This soda empire has contributed more than $1.5 million to keep your teeth rotting from consuming their GMO-filled sodas. They also utilize high fructose corn syrup that is almost entirely GMO-corn derived. Here are other sodasthat contain GMOs, too.

7. Kraft

Kraft-logoKraft is also a big GMA supporter. Its website says: “The use of genetically modified (GM) ingredients is not only safe for people and our planet, but also has a number of important benefits.”

Invisible Shield Found Thousands of Miles Above Earth Blocks ‘Killer Electrons’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 28, 2014

EthioTricolorSpace

An invisible shield has been discovered some 7,200 miles above Earth that blocks so-called ‘killer electrons,’ which whip around the planet at near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronauts, fry satellites and degrade space systems during intense solar storms.

A team led by the University of Colorado Boulder has discovered an invisible shield some 7,200 miles above Earth that blocks so-called “killer electrons,” which whip around the planet at near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronauts, fry satellites and degrade space systems during intense solar storms.

The barrier to the particle motion was discovered in the Van Allen radiation belts, two doughnut-shaped rings above Earth that are filled with high-energy electrons and protons, said Distinguished Professor Daniel Baker, director of CU-Boulder’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP). Held in place by Earth’s magnetic field, the Van Allen radiation belts periodically swell and shrink in response to incoming energy disturbances from the sun.

As the first significant discovery of the space age, the Van Allen radiation belts were detected in 1958 by Professor James Van Allen and his team at the University of Iowa and were found to be composed of an inner and outer belt extending up to 25,000 miles above Earth’s surface. In 2013, Baker — who received his doctorate under Van Allen — led a team that used the twin Van Allen Probes launched by NASA in 2012 to discover a third, transient “storage ring” between the inner and outer Van Allen radiation belts that seems to come and go with the intensity of space weather.

The latest mystery revolves around an “extremely sharp” boundary at the inner edge of the outer belt at roughly 7,200 miles in altitude that appears to block the ultrafast electrons from breeching the shield and moving deeper towards Earth’s atmosphere.

Pope Francis Visit: Turkey’s Christians Face Tense Times

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 27, 2014

  • “No country in the region – including Iran – is as homogenous in terms of Islam as Turkey”
  • The ethnic cleansing of these non-Muslim minorities was a huge brain drain”
  • Armenians were the other large Christian community. Hundreds of thousands were deported in 1915. They were either killed or died from starvation and disease. The label “genocide” is rejected by the Turkish state. From a population of two million Armenians, around 50,000 remain today
  • “Armenians fear expressing their religious identity here. Most of the believers hide their cross inside their shirt. They can’t open it and walk freely on the street because they could prompt a reaction”
  • New mosques are flourishing, while the world-famous Halki Orthodox theological school near Istanbul has remained closed since 1971 under Turkish nationalist pressure
  • “To be a Turk now means you have to be Muslim”
  • “The threatening feeling for non-Muslim minorities here is coming again.

It tells of a city where empires, cultures and religions collided. A building that bears mosaics of Jesus and the Virgin Mary beside calligraphy reading “Allah” and “the Prophet Mohamed”. There is no greater symbol of the clash of civilisations here than Hagia Sophia.

For almost 1,000 years it stood as the most important Orthodox cathedral in the world, the religious heart of the largely Christian Byzantine empire whose capital was then called Constantinople.

But in 1453 the city fell to the Ottomans, Hagia Sophia became a mosque and Christianity began its slow demise here.

As Turkey grew out of the ashes of the Ottoman Empire, that decline accelerated. When Pope Francis arrives here this week, he will visit a country whose population has fallen from 20% Christian 100 years ago to around 0.2% today.

‘Huge brain drain’

“No country in the region – including Iran – is as homogenous in terms of Islam as Turkey,” says historian Cengiz Aktar. “It’s a mono-colour country – it’s a Muslim country.”

After the Turkish Republic was born in 1923, it carried out a “population exchange” with Greece to create more ethnic and religious consistency. More than a million Greeks were forced out of Turkey to Greece while around 300,000 Muslims from Greece were relocated here.

The Greeks of Istanbul were initially saved but after a crippling wealth tax, anti-Greek pogroms in 1955 and mass expulsions in 1964, the Greek community was left in tatters. And so was the Orthodox Christianity they practised.

“The ethnic cleansing of these non-Muslim minorities was a huge brain drain,” says Mr Aktar, who has created a new exhibition on the loss of the Greeks here.

“It also meant the disappearance of the bourgeoisie because not only were they wealthy but they were artisans. Istanbul lost its entire Christian and Jewish heritage.”

Hidden crosses

It was not just the exodus of the Greeks that hit Christianity here.

Armenians were the other large Christian community. Hundreds of thousands were deported in 1915. They were either killed or died from starvation and disease. The label “genocide” is rejected by the Turkish state. From a population of two million Armenians, around 50,000 remain today.

Robert Koptas shows me around the office of his Armenian weekly newspaper, Agos. In 2007, the editor, Hrant Dink, was murdered outside by Turkish nationalists. Seven years on, Mr Koptas says the small Armenian community feels intimidated.

“Armenians fear expressing their religious identity here,” he says.

“Most of the believers hide their cross inside their shirt. They can’t open it and walk freely on the street because they could prompt a reaction. I don’t want to say all the Turkish population is against Christianity but nationalism is so high that people are afraid to express themselves.”

That is now the worry among the Christian minority here: that Turkish Muslim nationalism has grown under the Islamist-rooted government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, prime minister for 11 years before being elected president last August.

Dead missionaries

Mr Erdogan has made moves to support the Christians, such as passing a law to return confiscated state property to them and allowing Christian religious classes in schools. But he constantly stresses his Islamic identity, his support base is conservative Muslim and he whips up the nationalists here, the mood hardening against Christians.

Catholics, the smallest Christian minority in Turkey, have felt the impact.

A spate of murders of Catholic missionaries and priests a few years ago left the community in shock. At the Catholic basilica in Istanbul, there is Mass for the few.

“To be a Turk now means you have to be Muslim,” says Father Iulian Pista, who serves here.

“In the past, being a pious Muslim was looked down upon. Now Friday prayers are encouraged. Society here is becoming Islamised. Recently, I’ve seen youngsters defecate and urinate in my church. They shout ‘Allahu akbar’ [English: God is great]. I also believe God is great but the way they say it is threatening.”

Islam was sidelined from the constitutionally secular Turkish republic founded in 1923. But as a nation state was formed here, the religion became part of Turkish national identity, something that has sharply accelerated under Mr Erdogan’s leadership.

Old fears

New mosques are flourishing, while the world-famous Halki Orthodox theological school near Istanbul has remained closed since 1971 under Turkish nationalist pressure. One of the remaining Greeks of Turkey, Fotis Benlisoy, says the community feels squeezed: “The threatening feeling for non-Muslim minorities here is coming again.

“There are many reasons: language and policies of the government, the president and prime minister using more conservative references to Sunni identity, pejorative words for non-Muslim communities coming from members of the cabinet, so much circulating about Turkey’s relations with Isis [the Islamic State militant group based in Syria and Iraq] – all of this is making us think we might need an escape strategy.”

At the magnificent Panaghia Greek Orthodox Church in Istanbul, the morning liturgy is led by Bartholomew I, “ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople”, a position still based here.

It is a reminder of this country’s heritage – and of a Christian faithful that is small but defiant. As modern Turkey builds its identity, the question still remains: can it embrace true religious freedom – or will nationalism stand in the way?

The Never-Ending Arab Cruelty Against Sons & Daughters of Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 26, 2014

Ethiopia is Africa’s biggest refugee-hosting country, yet, Ethiopian immigrants continue to be maltreated by the ever ungraceful and hostile neighboring nations. Whether it’s in Sudan, Somalia or other Arab-league member nations, for those cruel “neighbors” no excess seems to be too monstrous for them to commit. 

Here are the latest acts of atrocious cruelty committed against Children of Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Maids Reveal Abuse From Employers in UAE

Two maids have spoken of the appalling abuse they claim was dished out by their employers, as a top diplomat called for an end to household “slavery”.

Hedja Ousman, 22, and Wube Tamene, 18, worked for families in the UAE and both say they were beaten, starved, and prevented from contacting their families in Ethiopia.

They have now sought refuge at the Ethiopian Consulate in Dubai.

Hedja, speaking to 7DAYS yesterday, told of the horrors she endured during the two years she worked for a Kazakh family in Ajman. She said her female employer didn’t like the prospect of the maid speaking to her husband.

She said: “My employer didn’t want me talking to her husband. Every time her husband would instruct me to do something, she would beat me.”

Hedja said the woman even cut off her hair to make her “less attractive”.

Hedja, who earned Dhs500 per month, said the abuse began three months after she started her job. She decided to escape last week when her employer accused her of stealing car keys and beat her.

“I saw the door open and I ran,” she said. I asked someone for water, they called the police for me. I’ve been at the consulate since. I want to go home.”

She has dropped the police case she had filed against her employer but the consulate says it intends to file a new one.

Wube worked for an Emirati family in Dubai and claims at one point she was starved for two days then shown a plate of food, which she thought was hers, only for her employers to throw it in the bin.

Ethiopia’s Consul General in Dubai, Yibeltal Aemero Alemu, said he is seeing “a lot” of such cases, branding it “slavery.”

Housemaid Wube Tamene dreamed of a new life and a decent standard of living in the UAE.

Instead she was made to cut up her clothes and clean her employer’s home with the rags.

The Ethiopian, aged just 18, claims she was also made to walk around in bare feet and was not paid a salary for 18 months.

She also claims she was regularly beaten. Wube is now seeking refuge at the Ethiopian consulate in Dubai, along with fellow maid Hedja Ousman, who escaped an abusive employer – a Kazakh woman – in Ajman.

Their cases have prompted Ethiopia’s Consul General in Dubai, Yibeltal Aemero Alemu, to call for such “slavery” to stop.

Alemu said the consulate is now seeing “a lot” of cases in UAE and has said his office would begin pursuing cases against abusive families.

He said: “These maids have no communication to the outside world, they’re starved and beaten – this is slavery.

“They’re not allowed to have mobile phones. To exploit the maids employers don’t let them communicate with their families back home, so they won’t run away for other opportunities.”

Recalling her abuse, Wube said: “When my employer wanted to get rid of me she made me sign a contract in Arabic that I have settled everything with her. But I didn’t understand what I was signing.

“She took me to the airport without shoes and any luggage, gave me my flight tickets and asked me to leave.

“But I was stopped by authorities. They said ‘where are you going without shoes?’” Consul-General Alemu said Wube has now received her outstanding salary of Dhs9,000 and will be heading back to Ethiopia today.

Ethiopia currently has a ban on its nationals coming to the UAE as domestic workers, but Alemu said the two maids started work before his government implemented it last year. Addis Abada said such a ban would remain in place until there is an agreement reached to protect its nationals from abusive employers.

“There are 90,000 Ethiopians in the UAE and most of them are maids,” Alemu said.

Lola Lopez founder of the humanitarian group Babies Behind Bars, which also helps maids who are abused, said some were being denied basic human rights.

She said: “Some people have no regard for human life. Welfare organisations haven’t been able to help much, because the message they send out doesn’t always reach the women it’s supposed to. Many of these maids don’t read the newspaper and they don’t have phones.

“No one can be denied basic human needs.”

[Psalms 94:1-7]

O God, in whose hands is punishment, O God of punishment, let your shining face be seen. Be lifted up, O judge of the earth; let their reward come to the men of pride.

How long will sinners, O Lord, how long will sinners have joy over us?

Words of pride come from their lips; all the workers of evil say great things of themselves.

Your people are crushed by them, O Lord, your heritage is troubled,

They put to death the widow and the guest, they take the lives of children who have no father; And they say, Jah will not see it, the God of Jacob will not give thought to it.

Watch the Tense On-Air Exchange That CNN Edited Out of Christiane Amanpour’s Interview with RT Host

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 25, 2014

CNN censoring interviews and towing the line of the administrations?
Why else would they be called the Communist News Network?

 

Russia Today, Russia’s state-run cable news channel, is going after CNN after the American outlet seemingly edited out RT host Anissa Naouai’s harsh criticism of CNN and one of its hosts, Christiane Amanpour.

It should first be noted that many news outlets regularly edit pre-taped interviews. Amanpour even told Naouai that some of her personal attacks would be edited out of the final product. However, RT’s claims that many of Naouai’s criticisms of CNN were also removed appear to be rooted in some truth.

RT later published the full transcript of the CNN interview. Mediaite later highlighted some of the most contentious moments.

In one tense segment that was edited out, Naouai slammed CNN for airing a video of a “supposed helicopter being downed by these anti-Kiev fighters” that ended up being from Syria.

We went online; we checked the video. The video was from Syria. We never even saw a retraction from CNN. So it’s a little difficult to judge,” she added, defending RT’s news coverage.

In another exchange, the RT host essentially accuses Amanpour of propagating the “line of the State Department for over 15 years.”

NAOUAI: …[I]t’s an absurd question coming from someone that’s propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years. I mean, it’s absolutely absurd.

AMANPOUR: Well, are you talking to me?

NAOUAI: Yes. Absolutely I’m talking to you. Who else would I be talking to?

AMANPOUR: Are you talking to me?

NAOUAI: Absolutely.

AMANPOUR: You’ve got to be kidding me.

NAOUAI: You’ve propagated the line of the State Department for over 15 years, starting with Yugoslavia and all the way into Syria. And now you’re doing it for Ukraine, essentially. Absolutely, I’m talking to you.

AMANPOUR: Oh, my goodness. Have you seen any of my reports about Syria? Have you seen any of my reports about Syria?

NAOUAI: I’ve seen lots of your reports and in not one report where you find you questioning the United States government and their policy. And we, with our Russian propaganda, question those arms to the FSA, question those arms to al-Nusra and other leagues. And now today we have ISIS.

Here’s the edited interview that ended up airing on CNN:

Now watch the full, uncut video of Naouai’s side of the interview below:

ኢትዮጵያ እና ኢትዮጵያዊነትከሚለው የንቡረ እድ ኤርምያስ ከበደ ወልደየሱስ መጽሐፍ የተወሰደ

ከከበረ ሰላምታ ጋር

የኅዳር ሚካኤልተብሎ በኅዳር ፲፪ ቀን የሚከበረው የሊቀ መላእክት ቅዱስ ሚካኤል በዓል ነው።

እግዚአብሔር፡ የእሥራኤልን ሕዝብ በሙሴ አማካይነት ከፈርዖን የባርነት አገዛዝና ከምድረ ግብፅ የሥቃይ ኑሮ ነጻ አውጥቶ መዓልቱን በደመና ሌሊቱንም በእሳት ዓምድ ከልሎ እየመራቸው የቀይ ባሕርንም በደረቅ ምድር አሻግሮ እየጠበቃቸው፡ ውኃውን ከዓለት አፍልቆ ኅብስተ መናውን ከሰማይ አውርዶ፡ ሥጋ አማረንቢሉም ድርጭቱን በነፋስ አዝንሞ እየመገባቸው እንደተንከባከባቸው ይታወቃል፡ በአምላካቸው ቸርነት ይደረግላቸው የነበረውን ያን ኹሉ የተራዳዒነት ተልእኮ ይፈጽምላቸው የነበረው ሊቀ መላእክት ቅዱስ ሚካኤል ነበር። ይኹን እንጂ እነርሱ ለዚህ ኹሉ አምላካዊ ቸርነት ውለታቢሶች በመኾን ፈጣሪያቸውን አሳዘኑ፡ ይኸውም ሙሴ ከእግዚአብሔር ጋር ለመገናኘት ወደተራራ ወጥቶ ለጥቂት ቀናት በሱባዔ መቆየቱን ምክንያት አድርገው፡ ካህን ወንድሙን አሮንን በፊታችን የምናስቀድመው ጣዖት ካልሠራህልንብለው አስጨንቀው ጣዖቱን ማሠራታቸውና ማምለካቸው ነው።

እነርሱ ሊጠፉበት የነበረውን የእግዚአብሔርን ቍጣ፡ ሙሴ በማለሟልነቱ አማልዶ ቢያስመልሳቸውም የእነርሱ ማለትም የእሥራኤል ልጆች ፍላጎት፡ እንደ ኢትዮጵያ ልጆች፡ እግዚአብሔርን በእውነትና በመንፈስ ማምለክ ሳይኾን እንደአሕዛብ በሚታይና በሚዳሰስ ግዙፍ ነገር መኾኑን እግዚአብሔር ተመለከተ፡ እንዲህ ከኾነ ብሎም እርሱ እግዚአብሔር ቃሉን በጽላት ላይ ቀርፆ ያንም ጽላት በግእዝ ታቦትበሚባለው ሣጥን ውስጥ እንዲያስቀምጡት አዝዞ፡ በዚያ እንዲያመልኩት ታቦተ ጽዮንየተባለችውን ያቃል ኪዳን ምስክር ሰጣቸው። ከዚህ የተነሣ ጠላቶቻቸውን ድል ይነሡባት ዘንድ እንዲህ አድርጎ በሰጣቸው እርሱ ለእነርሱ በሚገልጽባት እነርሱም እርሱን በሚያመልኩባት በዚችው የጽላት ሕግ ሃይማኖትና ምግባር ጸንተው ይኼዱ ወይም አይኼዱ እንደኾነ ሊፈትናቸው አርባ ዓመታት ሙሉ በምድረ በዳ አንከራተታቸው። በዚያን ጊዜ ለእሥራኤል ሕዝብ አንተ አንገተ ደንዳና ሕዝብ ስለኾንህ፡ በመንገድ ላይ እንዳላጠፋህ እኔ በአንተ መካከል አልወጣምና በፊትህ መልአኬን እሰድዳለሁ!” ብሎ የመደበላቸው መልአክ፡ ቅዱስ ሚካኤል ነበረ። ይህ ኹሉ ዝክረ ነገር በኦሪት ዘጸአት መጽሓፍ ውስጥ ተመዝግቦ፡ ዛሬ ድረስ እንደሚነበብ ታውቃላችሁ።

የቀድሞ ፌደራል ወኪል፦ “እነ ማይክል (ሚካኤል) ጃክሰን በሉሲፈራውያኑ ኢሉሚናቲ ነው የሚገደሉት”

በዚህ ቅዱስ በሆነው የሌቀ መላእክት፡ ቅዱስ ሚካኤል ዕለት፡ ይህን በጣም የሚገርም ቪዲዮ ስለ ሙዚቀኛው፡ ማይክልጃክሰን አማሟት የሚናገር ቪዲዮ ተመለከትኩ። ቪዲዮው ላይ የቀረቡትን አንዳንድ ሃሳቦች ሳዳምጥ፡ ተወዳጅ በሆኑ ዓለምዓቀፋዊ ሁኔታዎች ላይ፡ በተለይ ሙዚቃና እና ስፖርትን በተመለከቱ ነገሮች ላይ ጠለቅ አድርጌ እንዳስብ ተገደድኩ።

ይህን እይታዬን፡ ልክ ቪዲዮው ላይ እንደቀረበው ግለሰብ፡ ሌሎችም ይጋሩታል። ያለፈው የብራዚል የዓለም ዋንጫ፡ የመጀመሪያው የሰዶማውያን የዓለም ዋንጫ ነበር። ብዙዎቹ ቡድኖች የኢትዮጵያን ሰንደቃላማ ቅዱስ ቀለማትን ለመፃረር/ለማርከስ ከቀስተ ደመና የተወሰዱት የሰዶማውያን ኅብረቀለማት (ሰማያዊ፥ ቀይ፥ ቢጫ፥ አረንጓዴ) በብዙ ቡድኖች ዘንድ ይንጸባረቁ ነበር። በጊዜው እኝህ የሩሲያ ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተክርስቲያን ቄስ እዚህ ላይ ጠቁመው ነበር። ጨዋታዎቹ በሙሉ ማራኪ ያልነበሩ፥ ተጫዋቾቹም የተልፈሰፈሱና ደካማ ነበሩ። አዘጋጇ ብራዚል ባገሯ 7 ጎሎች ሲገባበትና ስትዋረድ ይህን ሰዶማዊ ልፍስፍስነት ነው ያንጸባረቀው። ተክኖሊጂ ተጠቅመው ይሆን? ሊሆን ይችላል፡ ሰይጣን በሚያስተዳድራት በዚህች ዓለማችን በድብቅ የማይፈጸም ነገር የለም።

‘Saudi Prince Paid For 9/11 Pilots to Learn to Fly’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 19, 2014

“The incredible claims were made in documents filed to a federal court in Oklahoma

Zacarias Moussaoui, 46, says an unnamed Saudi Prince paid for flying lessons for him and the 19 terrorists who hijacked planes in the September 11 attacks in the run-up to the atrocities.

The incredible claims were made in documents filed to a federal court in Oklahoma, in which Moussaoui says a prince ‘was assisting me in my Islamic terrorist activities… and was doing so knowingly for Osama bin Laden’.
