France Yellow Vests March on ‘Collaborator’ Mainstream Media Headquarters

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 30, 2018

ዛሬ የሚታየው የሜዲያው ዓለም ገጽታ በጣም አስቀያሚ ነው። ይህ ከዚህ በፊት ታይቶ አይታወቅም። የእነ ቢቢሲ፣ ሲ ኤን ኤን፣ ኒው ዮርክ ታይምስና መሰሎቻቸው ቅጥፈትና ሽርሙጥና የተሞላበት ጨምላቃነት እጅግ በጣም ኡ!! የሚያሰኝ ነው።

የኛዎቹም የእነርሱን ፈለግ በመከተል ተመሳሳይ ሐሰተኛ ፀረክርስቶሳዊ ቅስቀሳ በማካሄድ ላይ ናቸው። ያሳዝናል!

የፈረንሳዩ ቢጫ ልብስ የለበሱ ተቃዋሚዎች እንቅስቃሴ አሁን ወደ ቀጣፊው የመገናኛ ብዙሃን ላይ ፊቱን አዙሯል። ቪዲዮው የሚያሳየው ተቃዋሚዎቹ የሐሰት ዜናበማሰራጨት ላይ ያለውን የፈረንሳዩን የ BFM የቴሌቪዥን ጣቢያ ላይ ሲይስጠነቅቁ ነው።

በተጨማሪ ተቃዋሚዎቹ የአውሮፓን ባንዲራ ሲያወረዱ ይታያል


Anti-government protesters turned out in Paris and other French cities for the seventh Saturday running, as activists called for direct democracy — to take power out of the hands of political elite — and protested against the mainstream media.

As in previous weeks, many protestors carried placards with the abbreviation ‘R.I.C.’ — “Citizens’ Initiative Referendum”, a demand for popular referendums that would be automatically triggered by any referendum calling for a change in government policy getting 700,000 signatures.

If enacted, the introduction of referendums triggered by the public rather than given as a gift by politicians would likely see a massive reorientation of political power in France away from the political elite and even traditional political parties, a clear desire of the Yellow Vest movement which has reacted strongly against Emmanuel Macron’s globalist government.

Demonstrators shouted “Journalists — collaborationists!” and threw stones reports the Associated Press. Police pushed back protestors from the tourist favourite Champs Elysee, where clashes have taken place on recent weekends.

A social media user has posted a video of Yellow Vests “protesting against the media treatment of the movement”.Yellow Vests’ protesters gathered at the headquarters of French BFM TV channel blaming the channel for broadcasting “fake news” and calling for the resignation of President Emmanuel Macron, RT France reported.

France: Understanding the Gilets Jaunes Uprising

The vast majority haven’t been told the truth about life for ordinary citizens, in France. As a result, they don’t understand the significance of the violent ‘gilets jaunes’ protests across the country. Having lived in France for years, REX explains why these are the most important protests in France since 1968 – and likely a beacon for citizens all across Europe.

Countinue reading…

New Revelation: The Obama Administration Facilitated Christian Genocide in Nigeria

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 29, 2018

SIMILAR THING IS GOING ON IN ETIHOPIA

On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote. In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes.” — Goodluck Jonathan, former president of Nigeria, in his new book, My Transition Hours.”Christianity is on the brink of extinction in Nigeria.” — Bosun Emmanuel, the secretary of the National Christian Elders Forum,June 23, 2018.

“Hundreds of indigenous Numan Christians in Adamawa state were attacked and killed by jihadist Fulani herdsmen. When they tried to defend themselves the Buhari govt. sent in the Airforce to bomb hundreds of them and protect the Fulani aggressors.” — Femi Fani-Kayode, Nigerian lawyer, author and former Minister of Aviation, Daily Post, December 6, 2017.

In March 2014, after the United States Institute for Peace invited the governors of Nigeria’s northern states for a conference in the U.S., the State Department blocked the visa of the region’s only Christian governor, Jonah David Jang, an ordained minister.

In a bombshell revelation, Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s former president (2010-2015), has accused the Obama administration of meddling with his nation’s politics in order to replace him with its current president, Muhammadu Buhari — whom many blame for facilitating the persecution of Christians. In his new book, My Transition Hours, Jonathan writes:

“On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote… In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the [Muslim-led] opposition to form a new government.”

A 2011 ABC News report provides context:

The current wave of [Muslim] riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission’s (INEC) announcement on Monday [April 18, 2011] that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, won in the initial round of ballot counts. That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising. Northerners [Muslims] felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, [who] assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar’Adua died in office last year and radical groups in the north [Boko Haram] had seen his [Jonathan’s] ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year’s election. Now they are angry despite experts and observersconcurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history.

That the Obama administration may have imposed its will on a foreign country’s politics and elections is hardly unprecedented. Recall the administration’s partiality for the Muslim Brotherhood during and after 2012 presidential elections in Egypt; or its unsuccessful efforts to oust Israeli prime minister Netanyahu with U.S. taxpayers’ money; or its efforts — with an admittedly unverified “dossier” (here, here and here) — to prevent then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump from being elected, or by discussing an “insurance policy” in the event that Trump won. Moreover, texts by Peter Strzok revealed that Obama “wants to know everything we’re doing.”

So in Nigeria, the Obama administration, it seems, sought to right the apparently intolerable wrong of having a duly elected Christian president in a more than 50% Christian nation.

Two questions arise: 1) Is there any outside evidence to corroborate Jonathan’s allegations against the Obama administration? 2) Is Buhari truly facilitating the jihad on his Christian countrymen?

The Obama Administration’s Pro-Islamic/Anti-Christian Policy

Former Nigerian President Jonathan’s newly published accusations appear to correspond with the former U.S. administration’s policy concerning Muslims and Christians in Nigeria.

To begin with, the Obama administration insisted that violence and bloodshed in Nigeria — almost all of which was committed by Muslims against Christians — had nothing to do with religion. This despite the fact that Boko Haram — which was engaging in ISIS type of atrocities: slaughter, kidnap, rape, plunder, slavery, torture before ISIS was even born — presented its terrorism as a jihad. In one instance it even called on President Jonathan to “repent and forsake Christianity” and convert to Islam as the price for peace. The Obama administration, however, refused to designate Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization until November 2013 — years after increasing pressure from lawmakers, human rights activists, and lobbyists.

For instance, after a Nigerian church was destroyed in an Easter Day 2012 bombing that left 39 worshippers dead — one of many such deadly church bombings over the years in Nigeria — Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Johnnie Carson, said, “I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence” in Nigeria.

Instead, “inequality” and “poverty” — to quote Bill Clinton — are “what’s fueling all this stuff” (a reference to the jihadi massacre of thousands of Christians).

Apparently to prove that it believed what it was saying, the Obama administration even agreed to allocate $600 million in a USAID initiative to ascertain the “true causes” of unrest and violence in Nigeria, which supposedly lay in the socio-economic, never the religious, realm.

Also telling is that, although the Obama administration offered only generic regrets whenever Christians were slaughtered by the dozens — without acknowledging the religious identity of persecutor or victim — it loudly protested whenever Islamic terrorists were targeted. When, for instance, Nigerian forces under Jonathan’s presidency killed 30 Boko Haram terrorists in an offensive in May 2013, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (who is also mentioned in unflattering terms in Jonathan’s memoirs) “issued a strongly worded statement” to Jonathan, reported Reuters: “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations,” Kerry warned the Nigerian president.

In March 2014, after the United States Institute for Peace invited the governors of Nigeria’s northern states for a conference in the U.S., the State Department blocked the visa of the region’s only Christian governor, Jonah David Jang, an ordained minister. According to human rights lawyer Emmanuel Ogebe:

“After the [Christian governor] told them that they were ignoring the 12 Shariah states who institutionalized persecution … he suddenly developed visa problems… The question remains – why is the U.S. downplaying or denying the attacks against Christians?”

More recently, Ogebe, of the U.S. Nigeria Law Group based in Washington, told Gatestone in an interview that the Obama administration “State Department actually said they preferred a ‘Muslim majority’ country to explain why Obama chose to visit Senegal instead of Nigeria. Ironically, Jonathan sided with the US on Israel in the UN while Buhari voted against the US/Israel in the UN.”

Muhammadu Buhari’s Role in the Jihad on Christians

Indicators that Muhammadu Buhari — whom the Obama administration helped make president of Nigeria, according to Jonathan — is empowering the genocide of Christians follow.

After Goodluck Jonathan became president, thousands of Christians living near Muslim centers in Nigeria were killed. Since getting what they want — a Muslim president, Muhammadu Buhari, in 2015 — Muslims have attacked Christians in ways that are being characterized as a “pure genocide.”

As the Christian Association of Nigeria, an umbrella group of various Christian denominations, said in a recent statement:

“There is no doubt that the sole purpose of these attacks is aimed at ethnic cleansing, land grabbing and forceful ejection of the Christian natives from their ancestral land and heritage.”

To begin with, significantly more Christians have been massacred under Muhammadu Buhari than his Christian predecessor — mostly by Muslim Fulani herdsmen, who regularly launch raids on Christian villages. In just the first six months of this year, 6,000 Christians were slaughtered in the name of jihad. It took three times as long for the Fulani to kill only 1,484 Christians under Jonathan’s presidency.

Any number of prominent Nigerians have accused Buhari of turning a blind eye to Fulani atrocities. He “is himself from the jihadists’ Fulani tribe,” Ogebe told Gatestone.

According to Rev. Musa Asake, the General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria:

“Under President Buhari, the murderous Fulani herdsmen enjoyed unprecedented protection and favoritism… Rather than arrest and prosecute the Fulani herdsmen, security forces usually manned by Muslims from the North offer them protection as they unleash terror with impunity on the Nigerian people.”

Similarly, according to prominent Nigerian lawyer, author and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode:

“… the Muslim president [Buhari] has only awarded the murderers with impunity rather than justice and has staffed his government with Islamic officials, while doing essentially nothing to give the nation’s Christians, who make up half the population, due representation.”

Like the Obama administration, Buhari also attributes Fulani persecution of Christians to “poverty, injustice and the lack of job opportunities.” As the Christian Association of Nigeria retorts, however:

“How can it be a [secular or economic] clash when one group [Muslims] is persistently attacking, killing, maiming, destroying, and the other group [Christians] is persistently being killed, maimed and their places of worship destroyed?”

The National Christian Elders Forum is more direct concerning the source of violence:

“JIHAD has been launched in Nigeria by the Islamists of northern Nigeria led by the Fulani ethnic group. This Jihad is based on the Doctrine of Hate taught in Mosques and Islamic Madrasas in northern Nigeria as well as the supremacist ideology of the Fulani. Using both conventional (violent) Jihad, and stealth (civilization) Jihad, the Islamists of northern Nigeria seem determined to turn Nigeria into an Islamic Sultanate and replace Liberal Democracy with Sharia as the National Ideology. … We want a Nigeria, where citizens are treated equally before the law at all levels….”

The Buhari government has even been accused of participating in the jihad. For example, one especially savage Fulani “attack razed several [Christian] villages in the southern part of the state [leaving 100 dead], and a military jet bombed a Lutheran church and other targets,” says one report, before adding: “Some people suspect the jets were deployed in collaboration with the terrorists because their bombs hit villagers.”

Fani-Kyode has been even more direct in his accusation against Buhari:

“Hundreds of indigenous Numan Christians in Adamawa state were attacked and killed by jihadist Fulani herdsmen. When they tried to defend themselves the Buhari govt. sent in the Airforce to bomb hundreds of them and protect the Fulani aggressors. Is this fair? WORLD TAKE NOTE!”

It is also worth noting that, although Christians were only recently the majority of Nigeria’s population, the ongoing genocide against them has caused their population to drop — to the point that Christianity in Nigeria “is on the brink of extinction,” warns Bosun Emmanuel, the secretary of the National Christian Elders Forum. Last summer he said that Muhammadu Buhari “is openly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in countless murders of Christians all over the nation and destruction of vulnerable Christian communities.” Accordingly, “the Church has been weakened and unable to stand before its enemies. Realistically speaking, Christianity is on the brink of extinction in Nigeria. The ascendancy of Sharia ideology in Nigeria rings the death toll for the Nigerian Church.”

Water Crisis Looms For Egypt as Ethiopia’s Nile Mega-Dam Nears Completion


Ethiopia’s GERD dam is set to reshape the complex water politics of the Nile Basin – and ‘water stressed’ Egyptians will be the biggest losers

Two of the biggest dam projects in the world – one in Turkey, the other in Ethiopia – are nearing completion. Both are likely to profoundly affect the lives of millions in the Middle East and bring further tensions to already severely water-stressed regions.

In his second report, environment journalist Kieran Cooke reports on the progress of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and its likely consequences for Egypt.

There have been hold ups and reports of large cost overruns but building work on the lavishly titled Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam or GERD, under construction on the Blue Nile in the north of the country since 2011, is nearing completion.

In Cairo, almost 2,500 kilometres to the north, every step in the GERD process – the 6,500 MW hydroelectric dam is one of the world’s largest and the biggest in Africa – is being anxiously watched.

Egypt is facing a water crisis. A rapid increase in demand due to population growth, severe mismanagement of resources and a lack of investment in water infrastructure have led to Egypt being one of the most ‘water stressed’ countries in the world.

For years Egypt has viewed the Nile as its own; at one stage its politicians talked of bombing the GERD in order to preserve what they viewed as their historical right to the river’s waters.

No one can touch Egypt’s share of Nile water,” said Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in November last year.

It is a matter of life and death… this is our country and water must be secured for our citizens, from Aswan to Alexandria.”

Yet for all the strong words, Cairo knows the GERD will, at some point in the near future, become a reality. The project, say close observers of the project, marks a profound shift of power in the Nile Basin.

The GERD, for Ethiopia, is central to the country’s development and a symbol of national renewal. The aim is not only to provide much needed power within Ethiopia but also to raise vital export revenues by selling electricity to neighbouring countries.

Traditionally Egypt – as the power in the region – refused to countenance any upstream dams on the Nile,” said Tobias Von Lossow, a specialist on dams at the Netherlands Institute of International Relations, who has spent years studying the GERD and the complex water politics of the region.

Then along came Ethiopia and, against all the odds and the doubts of many outsiders, including the Egyptians, the GERD has been built.

Sudan, the other downstream nation, sees benefits from the GERD and is backing Ethiopia. Egypt has been forced to recognise a new reality – it has to negotiate with Addis Ababa as an equal.”

Electricity shortages

The most immediate concern for Cairo is when the giant reservoir at the GERD site will start being filled, and for how long that process will last.

If the reservoir is filled over a relatively short period – in under five years – it’s calculated that water flows on the Nile through Egypt could drop by as much as 20 percent.

Reduced flows on the Nile would also lead to electricity shortages, with a sharp drop in power generated at the Aswan hydroelectric dam.

Cairo wants a very gradual filling process which will cause less disruption to water flows, taking place over a period of between 10 and 20 years.

Ethiopia on the other hand wants to capitalise on its massive investment and fill the reservoir at the GERD over a much shorter period, enabling it to start generating electricity and begin selling it to other countries.

The big question is what if the climate changes and there’s a drought during the filling process at the GERD, with water levels in the Nile suddenly dropping substantially,” said Von Lossow. “That could lead to conflict.

The other issue is that though the GERD is solely for generating electricity, it will regulate water flows on the Blue Nile, enabling more opportunities for the development of agriculture and irrigation across the border in Sudan. That would mean less water flowing into Egypt.”

For the moment, delays and finance problems at the GERD have given Egypt some much needed time to tackle its chronic water woes.

Under the original construction timetable, power was due to be generated from the GERD scheme last year but various factors have been causing delays.

Unwilling to have restrictions placed on it by international lending institutions and banks, Ethiopia has largely self financed the GERD, estimated to be costing $5bn.

Lottery funding

In a nationwide campaign, people were urged to support the project through a national lottery.

Controversially, civil servants were persuaded to use part of their salaries to buy bonds in the scheme. The church also joined in the fundraising.

Then came a sharp downturn in Ethiopia’s economy, with the boom of several years turning to bust. Friendly foreign governments were asked for bail out funds.

The United Arab Emirates supplied $3bn in aid and investments and Saudi Arabia was asked for a year’s supply of fuel, with payment delayed.

China, already a big investor in the country, became a major player in the GERD, with a $1bn loan for power transmission lines.

A new government, headed by prime minister Abiy Ahmed, came to power in April this year.

Abiy, seen as less nationalistic and more pragmatic than his predecessor, has gone out of his way to address Egypt’s fears about the GERD, meeting Sisi in June this year.

In the course of the Cairo meeting, Egypt’s president asked Abiy to swear to Allah “before the Egyptian people” that he would not hurt Egypt’s share of the Nile. Abiy did so.

So much depends on the personal chemistry between leaders,” said Barnaby Dye, a specialist on dams at the University of Manchester in the UK.

አንድ ሙስሊም ክርስቲያኖችን ለሐሰተኛ በዓላቻው እንኳን አደረሳችሁ ቢል እና ሰላምታ ቢሰጥ፡ እንደ ዝሙት፣ ወለድ፣ ውሸት እና ነፍስ ግድያ ከመሳሰሉት ከባድ ኃጢአቶች የበለጠ ኃጢአት ሠርቷል ማለት ነው።

ሙስሊም ያልሆኑትን ሂዱና ግደሏቸው ማለቴ ግን አይደለም፤ ለፍትህ መቆም ይገባናል ማለቴ እንጂአብራካዳብራ!

ዋውውው! ያውም የኩፋር አገር ወደሚላት ካናዳ መጥቶ!?

እንግዲህ ይህ ነው ትክክለኛው እስልምና! የእያንዳንዱ ትክክለኛ ሙስሊም አመለካከትም ይህ ነው። በሳዑዲ ባርባሪያ ጥቁር ድንኳን ለብሳ በበረሃ ሙቀት የምትቀቀለው ወገናችንም ይህን ነው ቪዲዮው ላይ የምታረጋግጠው።

ግን ድፍረታቸው ይገርማል፤ የዱር አህዮቹ እስማኤላውያኑ ሁሉ ነገራቸው ሰይጣናዊ ነው። ሁልጊዜ ነገሮችን ፕሮጀክት እንዳደረጉ ወይም እንዳንጸባረቁ ነው፦

ክርስቲያኖችን “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” አንልም በማለት ከእነርሱ በተሻለ መልክ ትሁት ለመሆን የሚጥሩትን ክርስቲያኖችን ጣዖታዊ ለሆኑት የእስልምና በዓላቶቻቸው፡ “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” ይሏቸው ዘንድ ለመቆስቆስ የታቀደ ተንኮል ነው።

እኛ ክርስቲያኖች እንኳን ለገዳዩና ህፃናት ደፋሪው መሀመድ የልደት ቀን እነርሱን “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” (እንኳን ለሲዖል አበቃችሁ! እንደማለት ነው) ማለት የለብንም፤ እነርሱም ይህን ያውቁታል፤ ግን አምልኳቸውን እንድናረጋግጥላቸው ለበዓላቸው እንኳን አደረሳችሁ እንድንላቸው ይመኛሉ። ለዚህ ነው እኛን ሁሌ ቀድመው የሚኮንኑት፤ ልክ እነርሱ ገዳዮች ሆነው ተገዳዩን ቀድመው እንደሚኮንኑት ማለት ነው። “ጥቃት ከሁሉ የተሻለው መከላከያ ነው!” ብለው ስለሚያምኑ።

ደግሞ የሚገርመው እስልምና ከጌታችን ልደት ከስድስት መቶ አመት በኋላ መጥቶ፡ “ሰዎች ኢየሱስን ሲያመልኩ ወይም ኢየሱስ የአምላክ ልጅ ነው ሲሉ ካየን እናንተን እና እኔን ሊያስቆጣን ይገባል” ይሉናል።

እንግዲህ፡ አምላካችንን ለምን ዝቅ አደረጋችሁት፤ ለምን ነብይ ብቻ ነው አላችሁት? ለምን አልተወልደም፣ አልተሰቀልም ብላችሁ ታስቀይሙናላቸው? በማለት እንዳንኮንናቸው ቀድምው ሲያጠቁን ነው።

ባጭሩ፡ እነዚህ ሙስሊም ውሸታሞች … “ኢየሱስን እንደ አምላክ ነብይ እናደንቀዋለን፣ እንወደዋለን” በማለት ይዋሹናል ነገር ግን የእርሱን ልደት አታክብሩ እያሉ ጥሪ ያስተላልፋሉ፤ ተከታዮቹንም ያርዳሉ ሁሉንም ነብያት እናከብራልን ይላሉ፤ ነገር ግን ስለ ሁሉም ነብያት ብዙ የሚናገረውን መጽሐፍ ቅዱስን መስጊዶቻቸው ውስጥ ለስብከት አይጠቀሙበትም።

የዚህ ኢማም መልዕክት ባጭሩ፦ “አንድ ሙስሊም “ብሩክ ገና!” ካለ ይገደል!” በሌላ አነጋገር አንድ ሙስሊም “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” ከሚላችሁ ቢግድላችሁ ይቅለዋል ማለት ነው። ወደ ሺርያ ህግ እንኳን ደህና መጣችሁ!

እስላም ሰይጣንን ያመልካልና “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” ባይሉን ይመረጣል፤ በአላሃቸው ስም ከመረቁን ወይም “እንኳን አደረሳችሁ!” ካሉን ለእኛ እንደ እርግማን ነው የሚሆነው። በአላህ ስም ከመረቋችሁ፡ ሦስት ጊዜ ማማተብ እንጅ፡ አሜን! አትበሏቸው!

ተዓምረኛዋ የሩሲያ አይከን | ወንጌላዊው ሉቃስ የሣላት የቅ/ ማርያምና ልጇ ሥዕል የኢትዮጵያውያንን ገጽታ ታንጸባርቃለች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 26, 2018

..አ በ1383 .ም የኦርቶዶክስ ክርስቲያኖች ዋና ከተማ የነበረቸው ኮኒስታንቲኖፕል (የዛሬዋ ኢስታንቡል) ፀረክርስቶስ በሆኑት ሴልጁክ ቱርኮች እጅ ከመውደቋ ከ70 ዓመት በፊት ወላዲተ አምላክ ሥዕሏን ወደ ሩሲያ አሸሸቻት። ዛሬ በ ቲኽቪን ግዛትየፍልሰታ ገዳም” ተብሎ በሚታወቀው ቦታ ትገኛለች። ሩሲያ ከቱርክ ጋር በቅርብ ለምታካሂደው “የመጨረሻ ጦርነት” ይህች ተዓምረኛ ሥዕል ከፍተኛ ሚና ትጫወታለች። ክርስቲያን ወገኖች ከቱርክ እና ቱርኮች ራቁ፤ መጥፊያቸው ተቃርቧል!

ከዚህች ውብ ሥዕል ጀርባ የሚሰማውን ዜማ ያቀረበው የሩሲያ ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተክርስቲያን የወንዶች ዘማሪ ቡድን ነው። በእንጨት ላይ የተሳለችውን ይህችን ተዓምራዊ ቅድስት ሥዕል የሚያወድስ ድንቅ ዜማ ነው። ከፍ እና ዝቅ እያሉ የሚሰሙት የተለያዩት ድምጾች ፍጹምነትየተሞላበት-ተስማሚነት በጣም የሚመስጥ ነው። ስለዚህ ምስል የሚያሳየውን ቀጣዩን ቆንጆ የካርቱን ፊልም፡ ቋንቋው ባይገባንም፡ እስከመጨረሻው እንከታተለው፤ ልብ የሚነካ ነው።

ስለዚህ ምስል የሚያሳየውን ቀጣዩን ቆንጆ የካርቱን ፊልም፡ ቋንቋው ባይገባንም፡ እስከመጨረሻው እንከታተለው፤ ልብ የሚነካ ነው።

ከኦርቶዶክስ ሰዎች መካከል በመለኮታዊው ዓለም ተዓምራዊ ፈውስ ያላቸው ሥዕላት በጣም የተከበሩ ናቸው እነዚህ ሥዕላት ባለፉት ብዙ መቶ ዘመናት በሩሲያ የኦርቶዶክስ ታሪክ ክርስትና እምነት ተከታዮች ዘንድ የጋብቻ ግንኙነትን በመፍጠር ትልቅ ሚና ተጫውተዋል፣ ብዙ ሩሲያውያን ቅዱሳት ሥዕላት ፍሰቶች የተገኘ ጸጋን አግኝተዋል ኦርቶዶክሳዊ አሳሳል ያላቸው እነዚህ ቅዱሳት ሥዕላት የመንፈሳዊ፣ አዕምሮና የአካል ህመም ያላቸውን ብዙ በሽተኞች ፈውሰዋል። ይህም ለየት ያለ አስደናቂ ነገር ለብዙ መቶ ዘመናት በክርስትያኖች ዘንድ ታላቅ አክብሮትና ጥልቅ ፍቅር እንዲያገኙ አድርጓቸዋል።

የራሳችን የሆነውን ነገር ሁሉ እየናቅን የፈረንጆቹን ቅዱሳት ሥዕላት የምንወስድ ከሆነ የጣሊያኑን ትተን የሩሲያን ብንመርጥ ጥሩ ነው

የዛሬዎቹ የሩሲያ ኦርቶዶክስ የስነጥበብ ማዕከላት ለእነዚህ ድንቅ ሥዕላት ከፍተኛ እንክብካቤ ያደርጉላቸዋል፣ በየጊዜው ጥልቀት ያላቸውን አውደጥናቶችን ያካሂዳሉ።

ከተአምራዊ ፈውስ ሥዕላቱ መካከል ልዩ የሆነችውና በመላው ዓለም ታዋቂነትን ያተረፈችው ወንጌላዊው ሉቃስ የሳላት የማርያም ሰዕል 8 መረጃዎች

  • 1. የቲክቪን የወላዲተ አምላክ ሥዕል በጣም ታዋቂ ከሆኑት የኦርቶዶክሳዊ ክርስትና ሥዕላት መካከል አንዷ ናት።
  • 2. እንደሚታወቀው፡ በ 5 ኛው ክፍለ ዘመን፣ ሥዕሏ ከኢየሩሳሌም ወደ ኮንስታንቲኖፕል ተዘዋውራ ነበር፣ በዚያም ለርሷ ሲባል ቤተ ክርስትያን ተሠርቶላታል።

  • 8. በፀረክርስቶሷ ቱርክ እና በሌሉች የሩሲያ ጠላቶች ላይ ሩሲያውያኑ ድል እንዲቀዳጁ ትልቅ አስተዋጽዖ ያደረገችው ይችህ ቅድስት ሥዕል፡ ከ 14 ዓመታት በፊት፡ በቭላዲሚር ፑቲን ዘመን እ..አ በ2004 .ም ከአመርካዋ ቺካጎ ወደ ሩሲያ ተመልሳለች።
  • በዚሁ ዓመት አሜሪካን ለማጥፋት የታጨው ባራክ ሁሴን ኦባማ በቺካጎ ከተማ ብቅ ብቅ አለ። በ 2008 .ም በፐርጋሞን የሰይጣን ኃውልት የተቀባው ኦባማ የፕሬዚደንት ወንበሩ ላይ ከመቀመጡ በፊት፡ ከ2005 እስከ 2008 ድረስ የቺካጎዋ ኢለኖይ ግዛት ሴነተር ነበር።

ኢራቅ የጌታችን የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስን የልደት ቀን ብሔራዊ በዓል እንዲሆን አዘዘች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 26, 2018

ይህ እንግዲህ፡ አባታችን አብርሃም በተወለደባት ምድር የአብርሃም ዘር ወራሾች የሆኑት ክርስቲያኖች ላለፉት 1400 ዓመታት በአብርሃምና ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጠላቶች በሆኑት የመሀመድ አርበኞች ስንት ስቃይ ካሳለፉና ቁጥራቸውም ከተቀነሰ በኋላ ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ መሆኑ ነው። እስኪ ይታየን፤ ለኢትዮጵያ በጎነት ምንም ዓይነት አስተዋጽኦ የማያበረክቱት መጤዎቹ መሀመዳውያኑ በክርስቲያን ኢትዮጵያ ረመዳን፣ ኢድአልፈጢር ወዘተ በብሔራዊ ደረጃ እንዲያከብሩ ይፈቀድላቸዋል፤ ለኢራቅ በጎነትና ሰላም ከፍተኛ አስተዋጽ ኦ የሚያበረክቱት ክርስቲያን ወገኖቻችን ግን በገዛ አገራቸው ከአንድ ሺህ አራት መቶ ዓመታት በኋላ በዓላቸው ገና አሁን እውቅና እንዲያገኝ ተደርጓል። ምንም እንኳን እባቦቹን መሀመዳውያን ለሰከንድ እንኳን ማመን ባይኖርብንም፤ ለማንኛውም ይህ ጥሩ እርምጃ ነው።
