💭 Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Thursday demanding his administration issue an assessment of accusations of genocide against the government of Ethiopia and demanding Biden do more to address the brutal civil war in that country.

Biden’s foreign policy has been almost entirely focused in the past month on Ukraine, where a nationwide war erupted last month after Russian leader Vladimir Putin escalated his eight-year-old invasion into a full-scale assault on the country. The Biden administration has dedicated much time and effort to accusing Putin’s government of atrocities against Ukrainian civilians and Biden himself referred to Putin as a “war criminal” this week.

Civil war erupted in Ethiopia in November 2020 prompted by an attack on a government military camp by members of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) a Marxist political party that once ruled the country and is headquartered in the Tigray region, home of the ethnic Tigray people. While a minority, the Tigray, through the TPLF, ruled the country from 1991 to 2018, when current Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Abiy Ahmed took over. Abiy, a member of the Oromo majority ethnic group, moved to isolate the TPLF and ultimately outlawed the group.

Abiy also launched a large military offensive against the TPLF and blockaded the Tigray region itself, resulting in widespread food insecurity and attacks on civilians that have led to accusations of genocide and fears that millions could die of starvation. Human rights groups have also documented cases of widespread use of rape as a weapon of war. An Amnesty International report published in August documented interviews with Tigray women who said Ethiopian military soldiers raped them in front of children and other family members.

Abiy himself has gone to the front line of the war and allegedly fought, urging Oromo and Amhara civilians to take up arms against the Tigray people. The Nobel Prize Committee has condemned Abiy, but not revoked his prize – granted in 2019 for brokering a peace agreement between Ethiopia and neighboring Eritrea.

On the other side of the war, the highest-profile TPLF member in the world is the director-general of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, accused of covering up a cholera outbreak while serving as health minister under a Tigray-led Ethiopian government. Tedros has attempted to use the W.H.O. to deliver food and other humanitarian aid to Tigray with minimal success; the Abiy government regularly accuses him of interfering in the war itself to benefit the TPLF.

In his letter, Sen. Menendez accused Abiy of genocide and urged Biden to consider doing the same.

“I continue to assert that Ethiopian officials have committed genocide in Tigray and I strongly urge the administration to make its own assessment as soon as possible,” Menendez wrote.

As United States Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power pointed out last week, the Government of Ethiopia continues its humanitarian blockade of Tigray,” the senator observed. “Thousands of political opponents of the regime remain in prison, seemingly for no reason other than expressing support for opposition political parties, along with those who were detained during the State of Emergency and are slated to be charged and prosecuted.”

“And reports of conflict and abuse continue in northern Ethiopia and beyond. On Monday, Reuters reported on a video that surfaced on social media showing men—some of whom were wearing Ethiopian military uniforms– burning civilians to death in the Benishangul-Gumuz region,” he continued.

Menendez noted that “all parties to the conflict have committed abuses,” acknowledging extensive reports of heinous violence committed by TPLF fighters and associates. A harrowing Reuters report in December highlighted the devastation in one Amharic community, where locals described Tigray fighters storming villages killing men in markets, churches, and other civilian public areas while gang-raping the women.

“Townspeople said more than 70 women were raped by Tigrayan fighters” in Belete Asrate, Amhara, according to Reuters.

“More than 300 people were killed in air strikes, carried out by the federal government in Tigray. Tigrayan forces in the Amhara region stand accused of 300 incidents of rape,” Menendez wrote to Biden. “Many more incidents have occurred during the course of hostilities that the OHCHR [U.N. Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights] has pointed out may amount to war crimes or crimes against humanity.”

Menendez criticized the Biden State Department for not moving quickly enough to address the crisis, writing that diplomats there appear to have “decided not to pursue this question so as to avoid stating publicly what we have all witnessed: the atrocities that have taken place in Ethiopia bear the hallmarks of war crimes or crimes against humanity.”

“I believe that the actions taken by the Ethiopian federal government amount to genocide, and I urge you direct the Secretary of State to assess whether war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide have taken place,” Menendez concluded. “I also ask that you carefully consider whether Prime Minister Abiy should be invited to participate in the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit that you announced for later this year, even absent such a determination.”

Biden spoke with Abiy in January “discuss the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia and opportunities to advance peace and reconciliation,” according to the White House.

“President Biden expressed concern that the ongoing hostilities, including recent air strikes, continue to cause civilian casualties and suffering,” the White House readout revealed, “and he reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to work alongside the African Union and regional partners to help Ethiopians peacefully resolve the conflict.”

This is How The Fascist Oromo Army of Ethiopia Treated Christians of Mekelle

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 18, 2022

Horrific Video Brings More Pain to New Zealand’s Tigrayan Community

A horrific video which appears to show three people being burned alive in Ethiopia has sparked outrage from the Tigrayan community in Wellington.

The video, which has been shared on social media, appeared to show armed men pushing three people into the flames. The victims are believed to be Tigrayan, according to leaders of that ethnic group.

The Tigray region in northern Ethiopia has been locked in a civil war with Ethiopian federal forces and its allies since November 2020.

As well as allegations of human rights abuses from both sides of the conflict, including executions, torture and rape, more than two million have been forced to flee their homes since it began.

“I didn’t want to see [the video] but everyone was calling me and sending it to me,” says Rahwa Hagos, chairperson of Wellington’s 100-strong Tigrayan community.

“Everyone was crying and saying we need to do something. I felt helpless. What can I do?” she says. “They were laughing as they pushed those people into the fire. I can’t believe a human being will do that to another human being. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, a person is a person.”

The Ethiopian Government Communication Service confirmed the incident, although the video has not been authenticated.

The gruesome event, which is understood to have taken place in the northwestern Benishangul-Gumuz region, was further anguish for the Tigrayan community in Wellington, who fear for the safety of their loved ones.

Hagos, who is from Tigray’s third largest city of Shire, came to New Zealand with her family in 2001 as a refugee from Sudan.

Her mother, Shawaynesh, a New Zealand citizen, went back to Tigray in 2017 to look after her elderly mother. They have since lost touch.

“When the civil war started we tried to get her out, but we couldn’t because it wasn’t safe,” she says. “We didn’t hear from her till January 2021 and even then she had to travel miles to find a connection to call to say she was okay. They have no access to communications, banking, electricity, often no water supply, no medicines. She’s been worried about my grandmother not getting her medication.”

Civilians are at the mercy of it all, she says.

In June last year Hagos’ mother, who used to work at Wellington’s Commonsense Organics, was able to make a minute-long call through an aid organisation.

“She had lined up all night long to get her turn. She said ‘We are okay, we are surviving, but we need money.’ She is capable of looking after herself and family but all their bank accounts have been frozen, so she can’t access her own money.”

She was unable to move around freely because she was too scared, she says.

Hagos, who lives in Wellington with her husband, Hancock, and their two young daughters, has taken part in protests to draw the New Zealand Government’s attention to the crisis.

Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta announced in June last year the Government would give $3.25m towards the humanitarian response in Ethiopia adding Aotearoa was “deeply concerned at the worsening humanitarian situation and food insecurity in Tigray”.

Hagos remained frustrated with the United Nations, saying the organisation was “not doing anything apart from releasing statements.

“Statements don’t do anything,” she says. “The atrocities we have seen… It feels like no one is paying attention. People are losing their lives every day just for being Tigrayan. It just blows your mind.

“We want people to know what is happening. We hope people will keep pushing the UN and people who have power [to act].”

Former New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark was one of the few she saw asking the UN to do something about it, she says.

Clark, former administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, has said war crimes were being committed in Tigray. Sexual violence had become a weapon of war. In an article published last year in Foreign Policy, co-written with Rachel Kyte, Clark said there was evidence of widespread and systematic sexual violence perpetrated by men in uniform.

She called on the world to “step in now and call the assaults what they are: a war crime.”

Hagos cries every day worrying about her family in Tigray. She can only hope they are safe.

Since that June call there has been only one message from her mother just before Christmas letting them know she was alive. And since then, silence.

Issac Ghebremiskel lives in Wellington with his wife and four children but has grave fears for his family in Tigray’s capital Mekelle.

Hi 63-year-old sister was arrested twice in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa “just for being Tigrayan”, he says. She escaped with civil war and is now living in Aotearoa.

Ghebremiskel and his wife have been unable to make contact with the rest of their family.

“There is no Internet, no phone. It’s blackout. They don’t have any access to banks. We don’t know how they are surviving. We don’t know if they are alive,” he says. “It’s difficult to get [food] aid in to Tigray. The government is using starvation like a weapon.”

Conflict – the fallout

  • Civil war began after a dispute between Tigray’s regional government, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, and the Ethiopian Government, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
  • Tigray has long fought to self-govern, despite the federal government’s desire for unity. Both sides declared war after Tigray held its own elections in September.
  • Almost 40 percent of Tigrayans are suffering an extreme lack of food, after 15 months of conflict. Across all three conflict-affected regions of the north more than 9 million people are in need of humanitarian food assistance, according to the World Food Programme.
  • Killings, looting and destruction of health centres and farming infrastructure have caused humanitarian needs to surge.
  • In late January, the International Committee of the Red Cross was finally able to make its first delivery of medical supplies since September 2021 into Mekelle.

Every Time You See Ethiopia is Still on The Map, You’re Seeing Real-World Proof of The Faithfulness of God

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 18, 2022

💭 አሁንም ኢትዮጵያን በዓለም ካርታ ላይ ባያችሁ ቁጥር ፣ የእግዚአብሔር ታማኝነት የገሃዱ ዓለም ማረጋገጫን እያያችሁ ነው።

ጽዮናዊቷን ኢትዮጵያ ከዓለም ካርታ ላይ ለመፋቅ፣ ለማጥፋትና ለጠላት አሳልፈው ሊሰጧት የፈለጉት 😈 የሉሲፈራውያኑ የኤዶማውያንና እስማኤላውያኑ እባባዊ ሤራ አራማጆች የሆኑት አማራ፣ ትግራዋይ፣ ኦሮሞ ጠባብ ብሔርተኞች ምን ይሉን ይሆን?

💭 ETHIOPIA IN BIBLICAL HISTORY

I spent the last week of February teaching Old Testament at the newly-formed Trinity Fellowship Pastors College in Addis Ababa. Ethiopia is by far the oldest nation I’ve visited, one of the few Old Testament nations still on the map. Its existence is a theological fact, testimony to the reliability of God’s promises.

According to the “primeval history” of Genesis, descendants of Cush settled the area that is now Ethiopia and Sudan soon after the flood. The Da’amat Empire was established in the tenth century B.C. by Menilek I, reputedly the son of Solomon and Makeda, queen of Sheba. According to the Kebre Negast (“The Glory of the Kings”), which was compiled in the fourteenth century A.D., Queen Makeda made a pilgrimage to Israel to learn statecraft from Solomon, who seduced her. Makeda conceived and went home to give birth to her son. As a boy, Menilek visited his father in Jerusalem, where Solomon anointed him as king of Ethiopia. As retribution for the humiliation of his mother, Menilek stole the Ark of the Covenant and levitated it across the Red Sea to Ethiopia, where it purportedly remains to this day. It’s a persistent national myth. Until Emperor Haile Selassie was overthrown in 1974, Ethiopian leaders claimed to be sons of Solomon, lions descended from the Lion of Judah.

There’s nothing of this legend in Scripture. To ancient Israelites, Ethiopia wasn’t an ally but an uncanny and terrifying threat. Cush’s son Nimrod founded Nineveh and Babylon (Gen. 10:8–12), cities that later conquered Israel. Aaron and Miriam objected when Moses took a Cushite wife (Num. 12:1). During the reign of King Asa, Zerah the Cushite came over the southern horizon to invade Judah with hundreds of chariots and a million-man army (2 Chron. 14).

Against this background, the heroism of Ebed-Melech is all the more notable (Jer. 38). Ebed-Melech was a Cushite eunuch who served in the court of King Zedekiah during the last days of Judah. The prophet Jeremiah counsels Zedekiah to surrender to Babylon. Enraged by this message, Jerusalem’s officials force Zedekiah to approve their plan to put the traitorous prophet to death. Like Joseph, Jeremiah is tossed into a muddy cistern without water, left to die of thirst.

Ebed-Melech bursts onto the scene as an unexpected deliverer. As the wonderfully-named Deusdedit Musinguzi points out in a monograph on the passage, Ebed-Melech is a model of compassion, justice, and courage. Though a foreigner, he charges Jerusalem’s leaders with “evil” in open court, and persuades the king to let him pull Jeremiah up from the pit. Ebed-Melech’s name, “Servant of the King,” indicates he’s Zedekiah’s servant, but he proves himself loyal to the King. As a Gentile deliverer, he foreshadows Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus. He literally rescues Jeremiah from death, raising him from beneath the earth, a figure of the Spirit who brings a greater Prophet from the grave. In every way, Ebed-Melech is the antithesis of the corrupt Jewish courtiers, a Gentile without Torah who keeps the Torah written on his heart (Rom. 2:14–15).

Ebed-Melech is firstfruits of a great harvest from the land of Cush. According to Orthodox tradition, Christianity came to the country in the late third century through two shipwrecked Syrian boys, the brothers Aedisius and Frumentius, who were brought to the court of the Axum emperor. Through their faithful service, the boys rose to high positions, and their witness convinced the emperor to become a Christian. In 305, the emperor’s successor sent Frumentius to Alexandria to ask the patriarch—none other than Athanasius—to send a bishop to Axum to promote evangelism and church construction. Athanasius ordained Frumentius, who returned to baptize Emperor Ezana, who made Christianity the official religion of his empire. Ethiopia is among the oldest of Christian nations.

In Acts, Luke tells us that Christianity arrived in Ethiopia already in the early first century. The first known Gentile to be baptized was another Ethiopian eunuch, a latter-day Ebed-Melech, who meets Philip in a Spirit-arranged encounter on the road from Jerusalem to Gaza (Acts 8). Though “cut off” like the Suffering Servant in the text he reads, the Ethiopian eunuch becomes fruitful, with a place in the house of his God (Isa. 56:1–8; Deut. 23:1–5).

Already in the old covenant, when the very name “Cush” could send chills down Israelite spines, the Lord promised he would one day adopt Ethiopia as a “home-born” son and a child of Zion (Ps. 87:4). One day, he promised, Cush would bring tribute to Jerusalem (Isa. 45:14). These promises form the story arc of Ethiopia’s long history. Every time you see Ethiopia is still on the map, you’re seeing real-world proof of the faithfulness of God.

ኦሮሞን/ጋላን አስመልክቶ አፄ ዮሐንስ ለአፄ ምኒልክ “ጋላዎችን አባርራቸው፤ የቀየሯቸውንም የቦታ መጠሪያ ስሞችንም ወደቀድሞ መጠሪያዎቻቸው ይመልሷቸው…” ብለው አዝዘዋቸው ነበር። ግን ዲቃላው አፄ ምኒልክ ልክ እንደ ሳኦል እጃቸውን ወደ እግዚአብሔር አልዘረጉም ነበርና ይህን ሳይፈጽሙ በመቅረታቸው ያው ዛሬ ይህን ሁሉ “ፊንፊኔ ኬኛ! ወሎ ኬኛ…” ሰይጣናዊ ትዕቢት እንድናየው ተገደድን።

ኦሮሞዎች/ጋሎች እና በእነርሱ አምላክ ዋቄዮአላህአቴቴ መንፈስ ሥር የወደቁት አማራዎች የትግራይን ሕዝብ ለማጥፋት የተነሳሱት እነርሱ እራሳቸው እንደሚጠፉ ስለሚያውቁት “ሳንቀድም እንቅደም” በሚል ጥድፊያ ነው። ከሃያ በላይ ነገዶችን ያጠፋው ኦሮሞ/ጋላ በኢትዮጵያውያን አባቶች እንደተረገመ ፥ በአባቶች የተረገመ ደግሞ በእግዚአብሔር ዘንድ የተጠላ እንደሆነ ሊጠራጠር የሚችል ክርስቲያን ሊኖር አይችልም። እነርሱ እራሳቸው ይህን ያውቁታል። “እውነተኛ ኢትዮጵያውያንና ክርስቲያኖች” ማድረግ የነበረብን ኦሮሞዎች “ኦሮሞነታቸውን/ጋላነታቸውን” እንዲክዱ፤ በግለሰብ ደረጃ ወርቅ የሆኑ ኦሮሞዎች/ጋሎች ስላሉ እነርሱ ነፃነታቸውንና ፈሪሃ እግዚአብሔርን ጠብቀው እስከ መጨረሻው እንዲዘልቁ ማድረግ ነው። ፩/1% የሚሆኑት እንኳን መዳን ከቻሉ ትልቅ ነገር ነው። አማራዎች ወደ እዚህ ደረጃ እንዳይወርዱ ነበር “ከትግራይ ምድር ሚሊሻዎቻችሁን ባፋጣኝ አስወጡ፤ ከኦሮማራ የዋቄዮአላህአቴቴ ባርነት ተላቀቁ” ስንል የነበረው።

👉 እግዚአብሔር አማሌቃውያንን እንደ ሕዝብአይወዳቸውም ነበር፤

[መጽሐፈ ሳሙኤል ቀዳማዊ ምዕራፍ ፲፭] ተመልከት!

ንጉሥ ሳኦል በሳሙኤል አቀባበል ተቀባ፤ ሕዝቡ ፈጣን አቀባበል አደረገለት፤ በአሞናውያን ላይ ድልን አገኘ፣ ያልተፈቀደለትን መስዋዕት አቀረበ፤ ሕዝቡን በተሳሳተ መሐላ ውስጥ እንዲገባ አደረገ፤ ስለ አማሌቃውያን እግዚአብሔር የሰጠውን ትዕዛዝ ሳይፈጽም ቀረ፤ ንጉሥነቱን ተቀማ፤ በፍልስጤማውያን ተሸነፈ፤ የቤተሰብ ሞት አጋጠመው፤ ራሱን ገደለ።

💭 አዎ! የእግዚአብሔር የሆኑ ሕዝቦች አሉ፤ የሰይጣን የሆኑም ሕዝቦች አሉ። በዚህ የመዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ብቻ እንኳን እግዚአብሔር የሚጠላቸውን ጥቂት ሕዝቦች ለይተን ማየት እንችላለን፦

ኤዶማውያን

እስማኤላውያን

ሞዓብ

አጋራውያን

ጌባል አሞን

አማሌቅ

ፍልስጥኤማውያን

ጢሮስ

አሦር

የሎጥ ልጆች

❖❖❖[መዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ፹፪]❖❖❖

፩ አቤቱ፥ እንደ አንተ ማን ነው? አቤቱ፥ ዝም አትበል፥ ቸልም አትበል።

፪ እነሆ፥ ጠላቶችህ ጮኽዋልና፥ የሚጠሉህም ራሳቸውን አንሥተዋልና።

፫ ሕዝብህን በምክር ሸነገሉአቸው፥ በቅዱሳንህም ላይ ተማከሩ።

፬ ኑ ከሕዝብ እናጥፋቸው፥ ደግሞም የእስራኤል ስም አይታሰብ አሉ።

፭ አንድ ሆነው በአንተ ላይ ተማከሩ፤ በአንተ ላይ ቃል ኪዳን አደረጉ፤

፮ የኤዶማውያን ድንኳኖች እስማኤላውያንም፥ ሞዓብም አጋራውያንም፥

፯ ጌባል አሞንም አማሌቅም፥ ፍልስጥኤማውያንም ከጢሮስ ሰዎች ጋር፤

፰ አሦርም ከእነርሱ ጋር ተባበረ፥ ለሎጥ ልጆችም ረዳት ሆኑአቸው።

፱ እንደ ምድያምና እንደ ሲሣራ፥ በቂሶንም ወንዝ እንደ ኢያቢስ አድርግባቸው።

፲ በዓይንዶር ጠፉ፥ እንደ ምድርም ጕድፍ ሆኑ።

፲፩ አለቆቻቸውን እንደ ሔሬብና እንደ ዜብ፥ ታላላቆቻቸውንም እንደ ዛብሄልና እንደ ስልማና አድርጋቸው።

፲፪ የእግዚአብሔርን መሠዊያ እንወርሳለን የሚሉትን።

፲፫ አምላኬ ሆይ፥ እንደ ትቢያ በነፋስ ፊትም እንደ ገለባ አድርጋቸው።

፲፬ እሳት ዱርን እንደሚያቃጥል፥ ነበልባልም ተራሮች እንደሚያነድድ፥

፲፭ እንዲሁ በቍጣህ አሳድዳቸው፥ በመቅሠፍትህም አስደንግጣቸው።

፲፮ ፊታቸውን እፍረት ሙላው፥ አቤቱ፥ ስምህንም ይፈልጋሉ።

፲፯ ይፈሩ ለዘላለሙም ይታወኩ፤ ይጐስቍሉ ይጥፉም።

፲፰ ስምህም እግዚአብሔር እንደ ሆነ፥ በምድር ሁሉ ላይም አንተ ብቻ ልዑል እንደ ሆንህ ይወቁ።

✞✞✞[መዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ፹፪]✞✞✞

፩ እግዚአብሔር በአማልክት ማኅበር ቆመ፥ በአማልክትም መካከል ይፈርዳል።

፪ እስከ መቼ ሐሰትን ትፈርዳላችሁ? እስከ መቼ ለኃጢአተኞች ፊት ታደላላችሁ?

፫ ለድሆችና ለድሀ አደጎች ፍረዱ፤ ለችግረኛውና ለምስኪኑ ጽድቅ አድርጉ፤

፬ ብቸኛውንና ችግረኛውን አድኑ፤ ከኃጢአተኞችም እጅ አስጥሉአቸው።

፭ አያውቁም፥ አያስተውሉም፤ በጨለማ ውስጥ ይመላለሳሉ፤ የምድር መሠረቶች ሁሉ ተናወጡ።

፮ እኔ ግን። አማልክት ናችሁ፥ ሁላችሁም የልዑል ልጆች ናችሁ፤

፯ ነገር ግን እንደ ሰው ትሞታላችሁ፥ ከአለቆችም እንደ አንዱ ትወድቃላችሁ አልሁ።

፰ አቤቱ፥ ተነሥ፥ በምድር ላይ ፍርድ፥ አንተ አሕዛብን ሁሉ ትወርሳለህና።
