New Video: More Ethiopian Christians Beheaded in Libya by Satan Worshipping Jihadists

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 12, 2016


Islamic State (ISIS) released a horrifying clip of the mass execution as they continue to wage war on those who do not follow their sick ideals. 

Ethiopian Christians can be seen dressed in orange jumpsuits with dozens of masked terrorists standing behind them.

The 29-minute video shows the jihadis separate the Christians into two groups on a beach in Libya.

In distressing scenes one group is then shot and the other beheaded.

The terrorists describe the men as “followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church“.

ISIS claim the men did not pay a compulsory religious tax and were left with one option – to convert.

The slickly-edited video then shows scenes of cities under the control of ISIS including Ninevah and Mosul in Iraq

The footage shows churches in both cities being blown up as ISIS continues to destroy scores of religious buildings.

A group of Coptic Christians were also murdered on a beach in Libya in February.

ISIS has forced hundreds of thousands of Christians to flee from their homes in Iraq, Libya and Syria.

Those who remain are face abduction, torture and execution if they refuse to convert.

Concerns have been raised Christianity could be wiped out in the Middle East as Islamic extremism continues its rampage.

China Expands Presence in Djibouti, the Mouth of the Red Sea

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 12, 2016


The Chinese have struck a deal with the nation of Djibouti to build a military base in close proximity to a critical American military base on the Horn of Africa.

According to PRI, “since 2014, this small chunk of the Horn of Africa, little bigger than the state of New Jersey, has been the only place in the world where the warships of the two countries’ navies are moored alongside each other.”

The Chinese are the second country to cut a deal with Djibouti this year to create a military presence, joining Saudi Arabia, which made a similar agreement early this year. China has invested heavily in the area by pumping billions into Djibouti and neighboring Ethiopia. The new base will both protect their investments and give them increased military presence in one of the world’s most important trading routes.

The Chinese government earlier this year began funding a natural gas pipeline to the main port in Djibouti that Beijing will then export. The major agreement has led some to caution that the government of Djibouti may depend too heavily on Chinese credit to function; estimates show a possible increase in the national debt of nearly 20 percent for the nation by 2017.

China has been increasing its investments worldwide, particularly focusing in Africa on Djibouti and neighboring Ethiopia. The new base will both protect its investments and give increased military presence in one of the world’s most important trading routes. Africa is uniquely situated at the opening of the major shipping lanes of the world. The Suez Canal and the Red Sea are among those major shipping routes, connecting Africa and Europe with Asia.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Captain Pete O’Brien, a military expert with the London Center, explained that China wants to be the dominate power in Asia. To achieve this goal, it must control passage through the South China Sea and the shipping lanes that lead to it.

Captain O’Brien went on to explain the Theory of Sea Power, written by A.T. Mahan in 1890. For China to become the dominate power in Asia and eventually the world, it would not necessarily have to control land, but control the approaches to the land. In the case of the South China Sea, this would mean Singapore in the east and the Suez Canal and the Red Sea in the west. If it can control the flow of trade on both sides, it will hold quite a dominant position in not only Asia, but the world. A base in Djibouti would be pivotal to monitoring traffic in the sea.

The Chinese government is currently embroiled in an extensive territorial dispute in the South China Sea far west of Djibouti. China has declared everything within a self-proclaimed “nine-dash line” its exclusive territory, spanning waters within the borders of Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, and the Philippines. It has developed military facilities in the Spratly and Paracel Islands, on artificial islands built on reefs largely considered to be international territory. The Philippines has filed a case at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague requesting a verdict that plainly notes where the borders of China end. China has vowed to disregard any such verdict.

A robust presence in Djibouti, then, could help secure China’s control around waters far to the west of the South China Sea, while the militarization plan underway in the Spratly and Paracel Islands would help cement its presence in the east. The small island nation is situated between the south opening of the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, which in recent years has become the epicenter of regional and international conflict.

Secretary of State John Kerry visited Djibouti in mid-2015, highlighting for the Associated Press that “the mainly Sunni nation has become a critical part of U.S. foreign policy. With U.S. ground forces out of Yemen amid a civil war, Djibouti is a launching pad for drone attacks on al-Qaida and other extremist groups as well as a key transit point for Americans trying to get home.”


This is one of the biggest secrets of the NWO. We are heading for a starve off because the world population has grown too large, and the sea is a major source of food. China sees how its control will be critical to survival.
