💭 ኢትዮጵያውያን እንደ ዩክሬናውያን ተመሳሳይ እቅፍ ከእስራኤል ማግኘት አይችሉም

በጣም የሚገርመኝ ንጽጽር፤ ነጭ ክርስቲያንዩክሬናውያን አፍሪካውያን በአውሮፓ ባቡሮች እንዳይገቡ ከለከሉ ጥቁር አፍሪካውያን የኢትዮጵያ ክርስቲያኖች ደግሞ የትግራይ ተወላጆች ወንድሞቻቸው እና እህቶቻቸው 360 ዲግሪ ዙሪያዋን የተከበበችውን ትግራይን ጥለው ወደ ሱዳን እንዳይሰደዱ እንቅፋት ሆነው አቤላውያኑን እየገደሉ ወደ ተከዜ ወንዝ ይወረውሯቸዋል። ይህ እንግዲህ ከድንቁርናውና ከጭካኔው ጎን የትግራይ ስደተኞች በሱዳን በኩል ወደ አውሮፓ እንዳይገቡ ለአውሪፓውያኑ ውለታ እየዋሉላቸው መሆኑን ነው። ዱሮ እስከ ሊቢያና ግብጽ ድረስ ዘልቀው መጓዝ ይችሉ ነበር፤ ዛሬ ግን በዚህ መልክ በሱዳን ጠረፍ እንዲወገዱ እየተደረጉ ነው። ዋዉ! በእርግጥ አፍሪካውያን ስለ ዩክሬናውያን ድርጊት፣ ወይም አውሮፓውያን ስለሚያደርጉላቸው ቅድሚያ የሚሰጠው አያያዝ ቅሬታ የማቅረብ መብት አላቸውን? የትግራይ አፍሪካውያን ላለፉት ፲፭/15 ወራት በአፍሪካውያን ወንድሞቻቸውና እህቶቻቸው በአረመኔያዊ ግፍ ሲንገላቱ፣ ሲገደሉ እና የዘር ማጥፋት ወንጀል ሲካሄድባቸው አፍሪካውያን ምንም ሳይናገሩና ሳይሰሩ ሲቀሩ ዛሬ የሞራል ልዕልና ሊጠይቁ ይችላሉን?! በጭራሽ! አይገባቸውም! እንዴት ያለ ነውር ነው!

ታዲያ ዛሬ እስራኤልም ኢትዮጵያውያን ክርስቲያኖች ቅድስት ምድር ኢየሩሳሌምን እንዳይሳለሙ ብታግዳቸው ሊገርመን ይገባልን? አይሁዱም፣ ሙስሊሙም፣ ፕሮቴስታንቱም፣ ካቶሊኩም፣ ሂንዱውም፣ ቡድሃውም፣ ኢአማኒያኑም ሁሉም፤ የት አለ ኢትዮጵውያዊ/ክርስቲያናዊው ፍቅራችሁና ወንድማማችነታችሁ? በቅኝ አልተገዛንም የእግዚአብሔር ልጆች ነንትላላችሁ፤ ታዲያ አሳዩና!” እያሉን እኮ ነው።

በግድየለሽነትና ከእግዚአብሔር ሕግጋት በመራቅ፤ እኛ እኮ ተቻችለንና ተፋቅረን ነው የምንኖረው!” እያለ የሚመጻደቀውና ዛሬ ለነገሠው የኢትዮጵያ ዘስጋ ባሪያ በመሆን ከሙስሊሙም ከመናፍቃኑ ጋር በግብዝነት ተደበላልቆ ቡና እየጠጣ፣ ጫት እየቃመና ጥንባሆ እያጤሰ ስለሚኖር ልክ የአህዛብን ባሕርያት ወርሶና አህዛብ የሚሠሩትን ጽንፈኛ ተግባር በመፈጸም ላይ ይገኛል።

በዚህ መልክ ከቀጠለ የውጩ ዓለም ኢትዮጵያውያንንእንደ አውሬ ማየት ስለሚጀምር ልጆቻቸው በመላው ዓለም ይሰቃያሉ፤ ሥራ ለመቀጠር፣ መኖሪያ ቤትና ትምህርት ቤት እንኳን ለማግኘት እጅግ በጣም ነው የሚከብዳቸው። ኢትዮጵያዊ የተባለ ሁሉ ፊቱን ሸፍኖና አንገቱን ደፍቶ የሚሄድበት ጊዜ ሩቅ አይሆንም። የም ዕራቡ ዓለም ኤዶማውያን እና የምስራቁ ዓለም እስማኤላውያኑ ይህን ነበር ለዘመናት ሲመኙ የነበሩት፤ ዛሬ በኦሮሞ ጭፍሮቻቸው አማካኝነት በጣም በረቀቀና ዲያብሎሳዊ በሆነ መልክ ጽዮናውያንን ከገደል አፋፍና ወንዝ ላይ በአሰቃቂ ሁኔታ ገድለው በመጣል፣ በእሳት አቃጥለው ቪዲዮ በመቅረጽ ለመላው ዓለም በማሳየት ላይ ናቸው።

የዩክሬይኑ ጦርነት በትግራይ ስለተፈጸመው አሰቃቂ ልብ ሰባሪ ሁኔታና በኮቪድ ክትባት ሳቢያ በቢሊየን የሚቆጠሩ የዓለማችን ዜጎችን ስቃይ ከሚፈጥረው ቁጣ ትኩረቱን ለማዞር ታስቦ ነው። ሌላው ዓለም እኮ፤ “እናንተ እራሳችሁ ለራሳችሁ ወገን ያልተቆረቆረላችሁ እንደ በፊቱ ትኩረቱን ልንሰጣችሁ አይገባንም!” እያሉን ነው። ለዩክሬይን እይሰጡ ያሉትን ድጋፍ እያየነው አይደል!

💭 Ethiopian Jews Can’t Get The Same Embrace From Israel as Ukrainians

👉 Courtesy: Ynetnews

Opinion: Ukraine crisis is clear evidence of a racial imbalance in how the world responds to tragedies; while many open their doors to Europeans, few do so when it comes to refugees from Ethiopia, or other countries with populations of color

The past few days I couldn’t stop crying about the situation in Ukraine. Watching the news, reading articles and hearing reports took me to dark moments in my past. My heart broke to see people being victims again in a war that they did not choose to be part of.

I have watched videos of fathers saying goodbye to their children, mothers trying to save their babies. When I watch the news it invokes painful memories of my own childhood, of my family’s history. I don’t remember the experience of escaping civil war and famine in Ethiopia as a child. However, I heard and learned about it over the course of my childhood through my father, my family and my community. With the very limited information that I had, I began to piece together the true history of my people.

I only had a few years of happy home memories before everything changed forever. This was after my family and I escaped, in 1990, from a war-torn Ethiopia where Jews were targeted, and settled in Israel, in the town of Beit She’an. My fondest memories are of gathering around the dinner table, talking about our days and laughing at my father’s jokes. I was too young to realize the realities of being a refugee and the racism around me. I was in a naive reality, before the horrors of the world were to enter my life.

My father got sick when I was still very young. I was around 10 years old when I heard him cry for the first time. I didn’t understand why, but the more I listened carefully the more I started to hear him. He repeated one name so often that I had to ask someone in my family who it might be. It was his nephew, who was killed in front of my father by agents of the Derg junta as my father watched, unable to do anything to save him.

The world around me shattered. I learned that the world is a cruel place, and that there are people who are meant to suffer unfathomable things when they don’t deserve it because of disconnected leaders with selfish agendas.

I was overwhelmed and overjoyed, then, to see how the world came together in condemning and isolating Russian President Vladimir Putin for what he is doing to Ukraine. The way Israel and the world acted so quickly to help Ukrainians to escape, and to help others to fight the war alongside them, was nothing short of extraordinary. When people started to advocate for Ukraine, I joined. I changed my profile picture on social media to the Ukrainian flag.

A few days later, however, someone from my Ethiopian community asked why I didn’t post the Ethiopian flag, when the government there has recently and regularly targeted civilians in a 16-month-old war against rebellious forces of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front.

I was ashamed. I had done what many white people do: I had brushed off what happened to my people, to Africa, to the Middle East, South Asia and Latin America. Why does the survival of one country matter more than another’s? Why does one group of people have more value than another?

When I realized my mistake, I felt rage and the urge to do something about it. I started to do research, make phone calls, ask questions. I reached out to everyone I knew in order to find out more about what is happening in Ethiopia and what we are doing about it.

There is clear evidence of a racial imbalance in how we respond to tragedies, not just in Israel but throughout the world. Many countries have opened their doors to the Ukrainian people, but not to refugees from Ethiopia, or other countries with populations of color.

Despite a pledge to speed up its evacuations of some of the relatives of Ethiopian Israelis who remain in the country in the midst of an escalating civil war, the Israeli government seems to be making it more difficult for Ethiopian Jews to make it into Israel. Case in point: The Israeli High Court has frozen the planned entrance of 7,000-12,000 Ethiopians into the country for more than a month. Meanwhile, the same government is preparing to receive several thousand Jewish Ukrainians, and to take in 5,000 non-Jewish Ukrainian refugees.

Preventing these Ethiopians from entering Israel keeps them in harm’s way while their case gets reviewed by the High Court, and it’s all because of those in Israel who question the Jewishness of those individuals. Ukrainians of any faith are rushed in, while Ethiopians of Jewish heritage are kept out.

The Ukrainian conflict is a perfect example of the world’s hypocrisy. It shows how little Black and brown skin matters. The voices of other refugees aren’t shared on Instagram, TikTok and Twitter. War in Ethiopia and other countries is not as appealing to the international media.

But it’s up to each one of us to be their voice. We’re seeing big companies, sports teams, celebrities and governments boycotting Russia and blocking Putin in every way they can. But my wish is that the world will also treat Black and dark-skinned people the way they treat those who are white. A world, for example, that won’t stand for border guards in a war-torn Ukraine preventing brown students from fleeing the country while allowing white Ukrainians to get out.

What is happening in Ukraine is appalling, and we should all absolutely unite to fight oppression and murder any time it happens, but we can’t only do this when it is appealing to our racial or economic biases. Ethiopia is worthy of our time; all suffering around the world is worthy of our time. If we cared about human life more than we care about oil and military spheres of influence and our own racial biases, there would be less suffering in this world.

Let’s be a megaphone for the voices that have been drowned out.

💭 Israel said barring Ethiopian Christian pilgrims from entering country

In letter cited by Israeli TV, immigration authorities tell tourism agencies not to let groups in over fears they won’t return home due to ongoing civil war

Israeli authorities have banned Ethiopian Christian pilgrims groups from visiting the country for the upcoming Easter holiday over fears they will not return home, Israeli television reported Sunday.

According to Channel 13 news, tourism agencies recently received a letter from the Population and Immigration Authority that said due to the ongoing civil war in Ethiopia, there were concerns “these tourists will not head back due to it.”

The letter also said that any Ethiopian who wishes to visit Israel must do so personally by contacting the authorities online.

The network noted Israel has not imposed any such restrictions on pilgrims from other countries.

Yossi Fatal, head of the Israel Incoming Tour Operators Association, wrote to Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked to decry the policy as “severely discriminatory.” He said groups in Ethiopia have contacted Israeli officials in protest.

In response to the report, the population authority justified the policy, saying that “many tourist groups arriving from Ethiopia over the past years have indeed not returned and remained in Israel illegally.”
