የ እህተ ማርያም ኃይለኛ መልዕክት | ወሊድ መከላከያ የምትጠቀሙ ከሆነ 666 ዘንዶውን/ አውሬውን ለመከተል በፈቃዳችሁ መርጣችኋል ማለት ነው

Posted by addisethiopia on February 24, 2018

ወደ ቤ/ክርስቲያን መግባት አትችሉም፣ ሥጋውንና ደሙን መቀበል አትችሉም፣ መጠመቅ አትችሉም፤ የእየሱስ ክርስቶስና የእናቱ የቅ/ ማርያም ልጆች ነን ማለት አትችሉም።

ይህ የእህታችን ሌላ ታላቅ ትምህርት ነው። የተቀበለችው መረጃ ለአገራችን እጅግ በጣም ጠቃሚ ከሆኑት መረጃዎች መካከል አንዱ ነው። ይህን መረጃ ዓብያተክርስትያናቱ በየዕለቱ ሳራችን ብለው በሰበካዎቻቸው ወቅት ደግመው ደጋግመው ሊናገሩልት ይገባል።

እህቶች እባካችሁ የወሊድ መከላከያውን በጭራሽ አትጠቀሙ፤ ለማስወረድማ የምታስቡት ጉዳይ አይደልም” ብለው በየቀኑ መናገር ይኖርባቸዋል። ግማሽ ደቂቃ እንኳን የማትወስድ አንዲት ዓረፍተ ነገር ናት።

666ቱ አውሬ ጋር የተመሳጠሩት ሜዲያዎች ባዕዳውያኑ የወሊድ መከላከያና ህጻናት ገዳይ ድርጅቶች ማስታወቂያ ይሠራሉ እንጂ ለእህቶቻችን ማስጠንቀቂያ ሊሰጡ ፈቃደኞች አይደሉም። አቤት ጉዳቸው!

7000 አመታት በላይ ትክክለኛው አምልኮተ እግዚአብሔር የምትፈጽመው ሃገረ እግዚአብሔር ኢትዮጵያ ከእግዚአብሔር በመመረጥዋና የእግዚአብሔር ጥበቦች መገኛና ማስፈጸምያ በመሆንዋ በተለያዩ ጊዜያት ይህንን የሚያውቁ ባዕዳውያን ሃይሎች ወደ ሃገራችን በመምጣትና በርቀትም ጥበብዋን ለመዝረፍና ጥንታዊው ኦርቶዶክሳዊ ተዋህዶ ሃይማኖትዋን ለመበረዝ የተለያዩ የሰይጣን አምላኪዎች የሆኑ የምስጥር ማህበራት ጥረት አድርገዋል። በእግዚአብሔር ጥበቃ እስከ አሁን ብት ዘልቅም አውሬው(666) ግን ተቃውሞውና ሴራው ለማስፈጸም እስከ መጨረሻ እንደሚጥር የታወቀ ነው።

ልብ ብለን እንከታተል፦ ዶር ቴዎድሮስ አድሃኖምን ለዓለም ጤና ድርጅት ዳይሬክተርነት አሁን መምረጣቸው ያለ ምክንያት አይመስለኝም፤ ያቀዱት ትልቅ ሴራ በመኖሩ ነው። ጊዜ ያሳየናል።

የህዝባችንን ቁጥር በጦርነት፣ በርሃብ፣ በበሽታ፣ በ HIV ኤድስ ሊቀንሱት አልቻሉም፤ ስለዚህ አሁን የመጨረሻው ጦርነት ላይ ገብተዋል፤ በዚህም ሁለት ወፍ በአንድ ድንጋይ ለመምታት ቆርተው ተነስተዋል፤ ይህም፦ ቁጥሩን መቀነስ እንዲሁም የሚወለዱትን በአውሬው መንፈስ ቁጥጥር ማስገባት።

ባካችሁ፣ ባካችሁ የወሊድ መከላከያ አትጠቀሙ፣ ህጻናቱንም መርፌ አታስወጉ። እስኪ ወሊድ መከላከያ ለምን እንደምትጠቀሙ እራሳችሁን ጠይቁ! ለማመንዘር አይደለምን? እስኪ የተረገዘውን ለምን እንደምታስወርዱ እራሳችሁን ጠይቁ! ግድያ አይደለምን? በእነዚህ ድርጊቶች ብቻ ሙሉውን የእግዚአብሔርን አሠርቱ ትዕዛዛት እያወቃችሁ ሽራችኋቸዋል፤ ከእየሱስና እናቱ ጋር በጽኑ ተጣልታችኋል ማለት ነው። ከዚህ የበለጠ አስከፊ ነገር ይኖራልን?

  1. እግዚአብሔር አምላክህ እኔ ነኝ ከእኔ በቀር ሌሎች አማልክት አይሁኑልህ፡፡ ዘጸ 202-3፡፡
  2. የእግዚአብሔር የአምላክህን ስም በከንቱ አትጥራ፡፡ ዘጸ 207፡፡

ይህ ኢትዮጵያና ተዋሕዶ ሃይማኖቷን ለመለወጥና ለማጥፋት የሚደረግ ሴራ ተግባራዊ ለማድረግ እንቅል እንደማይወስዳቸው ያውም ኢትዮጵያዊነታቸውን በካዱት ግለሰቦች ድጋፍ ተጨምሮበት እውን ለማድረግ መጣራቸው ግልጽ ነው።

ሰብዓዊነተቻችንና ማንነታችንን ለማጥፋትና ደካማውን የምዕራባውያንን ባዕዳዊ እምነትን በሕዝባችን ላይ ለመጫን የአውሬው ሠራዊት የሚያደርገውን ጥረት ሁሉ መቃወምና እግዚአብሔር የሰጠነንን ልዩ ማንነት መጠበቅ ይገባናል።

Nigeria: Muslims Wipe Out 15 Villages in Mass Slaughter of Christians, Government Does Nothing

Posted by addisethiopia on February 22, 2018

Despite several calls to the governor and his deputy, and other security apparatus, the government remained silent as the atrocities continued. The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged.”

Why? Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari clearly has no sympathy for the victims. He shares the world view of the jihadi attackers.

Armed Gangs Wipe Out 15 Villages in Mass Christian Slaughter In Nigeria. Why is the world silent? Why are Nigerian ‘Christians’ in the South doing nothing to defend their brothers and sisters in the North? Why are they electing Muslim Presidents?

ARMED men stormed through 15 villages to massacre Christians and destroy their churches in a violent crackdown against the religion in Nigeria.

Dozens of people have been killed after the gangs ransacked towns and villages to clear them of all aspects of the Christian faith.

Houses belonging to believers have also been razed with authorities doing little to help, an anti-persecution watchdog claimed.

Open Doors spoke to one Christian who described the broad daylight attack carried out by a group of Fulani – one of Africa’s largest ethnicities.

A spokeswoman said: “One attack took place in broad daylight, as people were about to go to church.

The assailants chased and killed the villagers and burned down nine churches and many more houses.”

Christian persecution is a major problem in Nigeria which has been exacerbated by the spread of radical Islamic teaching and practice.

The shocked witness said Christians needed more protection from the country’s leader or lives would continue to be lost.

They said: “Despite several calls to the governor and his deputy, and other security apparatus, the government remained silent as the atrocities continued.

The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged.”…

In the central state of Nasarawa, 25 villages have been destroyed since January 15….

A spokesman for the Concerned Indigenous Tiv People group said: “Since the outbreak of the crisis on January 15 this year, due to the Fulani /herdsmen attack on our villages, leading to the displacement of Tiv in their ancestral homes, the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Almakura, has done very little to bring the situation under control.”

Other attacks have taken place in Benue State and across the Middle Belt region of the country. The Army has now been deployed to certain areas in order to stop the violence.

A spokeswoman for Open Doors said: “Believers experience discrimination and exclusion, and violence from militant Islamic groups, resulting in the loss of property, land, livelihood, physical injury or death; this is spreading southwards.

Corruption has enfeebled the state and made it ill-equipped to protect Christians. Rivalry between ethnic groups and raids by Fulani herdsmen compound the persecution. Converts face rejection from their Muslim families and pressure to recant.”

Selected Comments:

How many? 150, 1500, or 150,000+? Is this not genocide? (Answer: Yes, it’s genocide of non-Muslims by Muslims) Is this not Rwanda all over again? (I guess the left is waiting to see the numbers before making any conclusions, after all, those Muslims are scary, plus they’re allies in the fight against the global menace of white bubbas who fly Confederate flags; saw one in Thailand the other day in fact. It was in an old James Bond movie, but still).

And where is the UN? (Answer: Islamically infected, and worthless). Where are all those proud black people emerging from “Black Panther” only to see headlines (albeit in the back pages of the MSM) of authentic Africans (ones who are free and have integrated Christianity with their culture) being slaughtered by slaves of Muhammad, i.e. mindless recruits to a violent foreign invasion of Arab culture intending to replace African culture, i.e., replace “Wakanda”.

The left says “Never again,” but they are too P.C. to even read Jihad Watch to become really woke, much less act in self-defense.

Is this not Rwanda all over again?

No — actually, it’s Armenia all over again.

Between 1,000 and 3,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria every year for the last 20 years. That’s some 20 – 50 Christians murdered by MUSLIMS every single week.

Yep, that’s a better example, because the Armenian Genocide could accurately be called the “Turkish Muslim Jihad to Exterminate Christian Armenians.”

Islam, not a day goes by without Muslims mass murdering somewhere in the name of their prophet.

They will “BURN IN HELL” alpng with people who allow this “INJUSTICE!!”

What is topping Christians from taking guns and retaliating? What is topping Christians from exterminating Muslims from their space? What is topping Christians in Europe from blowing up mosques in retaliation against jihad attacks? Are Muslims the only people who know how to commit genocide?

Because we are not mindless, bloodthirsty savages like them.

The Jews have a saying: “Whoever is compassionate to the cruel will be cruel to the compassionate.”

This is a wise saying, and it justifies waging war against the Fulani as it justified what God ordered the Israelites to do to the Canaanites. If you can’t kill the people, then destroy their herds so that they starve.

The Nigerian Christians are too poor to be able to buy guns.

In the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-70, the predominantly Christian Igbo people tried to secede from Nigeria and form their own state, Biafra. They were defeated with famine, carnage and great suffering. The Christians of Nigeria have been subdued ever since. Although Nigeria has sometimes elected a Christian President, the northern Muslims dominate the army and the economy.

The President’s inaction shows that GENOCIDE against Christians and ETHNIC CLEANSING have the been given the GO-AHEAD by the TOP LEVELS of the Nigerian government!

Muslims are abandoning Islam in Nigeria at a rapid rate, because the choice between MODERNITY and BRONZE-AGE BACKWARDNESS is extremely clear to all.

Islam has nothing to offer Nigeria that is of value. With Islam is fear, discrimination, vigilante murder and STAGNATION. Only local warlords benefit, but no one else. They are trying to bring back the medieval black kingdoms. MESSAGE TO THE WARLORDS: THOSE DAYS ARE GONE.

Dear African Christians you are under siege

Victims — Not Rohinja Muslims

Therefore …

Expect no outrage at NPR/ BBC.

Instead:

NPR/BBC will have PHYCOLOGY experts explain the importance of controlling our emotions of fear and anger during times of (New Normal) MUSLIM terrorism attacks.

Am in Nigeria right now and have been in Nigeria for the past 4 Decades.

Worse things than what you just read have happened and are still going on without any international coverage.

If you’re waiting for the West and Google to hive you anything, you’ll wait for eternity.

We are on Ground and can confirm to you that what you read was just a tip of the icebers.

Don’t let the Islamic sympathisers in the West and the Google company to show you anything.

Muslims Burn Piles Of Pampers Nappies and Call For a Ban Because Cartoon Cat’s Whiskers Printed on Them ‘look Like the Arabic Spelling of Mohammed’

Posted by addisethiopia on February 22, 2018

ለጥላቻና ጥፋት ሁሌ ትንሽ ቀዳዳ የሚፈልጉት እስማኤላውያን በጭራሽ የማይመስለውን የካርቱኑን ድመት ምስል፤ በአረብኛ ፊደላት የተጻፈውን የመሀምድ ስም ይመስላል በማለት የፓምፐርስ ዳይፐሮች ክምሮችን ሰርተው አቃጠሉ። ይህ የቃጠሎ ዘመቻ የተጀመረው በህንድ አገር ነው።

እስኪ ይታየን፤ መሀመድ ህጻናትን ይደፍር እንደነበር በግልጽ የሚናገረው የራሳቸው መጽሐፍ ነው። አሁን ደግሞ በህጻናት ዳይፐር በኩል መሀመድን ከህጻናት ጋር አያይዘው ለዓለም ባላሰቡት መልክ እያስተዋወቁ ያሉት እራሳቸው ናቸው። ኤዲያ! ይላሉ አቶ ኃይሉ።

  • Muslims burn piles of Pampers nappies and call for a ban because cartoon cat’s whiskers printed on them ‘look like the Arabic spelling of Mohammed’
  • Protesters in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers nappies
  • They have taken offense with a cartoon cat appearing on the product
  • Lines of its face resemble the word Prophet Mohammed in Arabic
  • Groups have staged ‘Pampers burnings’, setting fire to nappies in the streets
  • Owner Procter and Gamble said design was intended as ‘innocent animated cat’

Muslim protests in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers products after claiming to have seen the word ‘Mohammed’ in the face of a cartoon cat which appears on its nappies.

The lines illustrating the whiskers, nose, mouth and left eye of the smiley feline have been suggested to resemble the Prophet’s name when written in Arabic or Urdu, although the company that makes the products vehemently denied the claims.

Procter and Gamble in a statement that said they would never intend to offend any person or religion and the the design showed ‘an innocent animated representation of a cat.’

However, the image on the hygiene product has been branded an ‘insult’ to Islam by critics, and protesters have staged ‘Pampers burnings’.

Selected Comments:

I had to check the calendar, nope not April the 1st.

For goodness sake.. Get a grip! Looks nothing like, anyway!

Here we go again, unbelievable. I¿ve never seen a bigger bunch of whiners in my life.

How do they expect to be taken seriously

Coming to a supermarket near you soon Jesus these people are easily offended no wonder why there is no decent comedy on shows no for fear of offending them . I’m sick of it

I can guarantee you that these idiots are illiterate….because there is not even one LETTER of Arabic in that drawing of the cat, never mind the entire word of Muhammad

Zero tolerance of our culture however expect complete tolerance of there’s

On the bright side it’s boosting sales for pampers.. Like they say all publicity is good..

The Global Resurgence of Demonic Racialism

Posted by addisethiopia on February 21, 2018

I’ve just posted the following commentary text (might be blocked or removed), after watching a mindbogglingly ignorant and stupid video of Eugenics Propagandist, Stefan Molyneux – who I first thought to be a rational human being.

Oh. Lord, how many lost souls are out there!?

It’s amazing to notice that racists and Islamists have so many things in common, like:

  • Hatred
  • Aggression
  • Projection
  • Denial
  • Unrepentance
  • Supremacism
  • Boastfulness
  • Absence of Empathy, etc.

These are all Satanic traits.

Children of Satan are never done. Much like old luggage and herpes, you never can get rid of them. They are losing this battle, but at not defeated.

Yes, Racism and Islamism are satanic ideologies, and their promoters are almost always influenced by demons.

I invite Mr. Molyneux to come to Ethiopia, I am positive you will be able to learn lots of things. The people will show and give you unconditional respect and love – the same unconditional love they gave the Italian fascists, right after the end of the 2nd World War– that was after boastful Benito Mussolini exterminated millions of Ethiopian men, women, children, christian monks and priests with poison napalm bomb. In spite of, I quote Swiss historian, Aram Mattioli who has called Italy’s genocidal reign in Ethiopia:

“Reign of terror”, “for which there were no role models in the colonial history of Africa and Asia”.

In spite of that, Ethiopians – whose nation was blessed to become the first Christian nation in the world – forgave the cruel Italians, few days after the war has ended. You never heard of Ethiopians accusing the Italians of their demonic acts or asking for earthly reparations, because they trust in God, and know vengeance is His.

So, unless everyone of us — including the hateful racialists — repent they will face soon God’s judgment.

[1 Corinthians 13:2 ]

ትናንት ቃሊቲ ቅ/ ገብርኤል፣ ዛሬ ቃዝሊያር ቅ/ ጊዮርጊስ | የመሀመድ ወታደር ፭ ክርስትያን እናቶችን ገደለ

Posted by addisethiopia on February 19, 2018

በዛሬው ዕለት በሩስያና በሌሎች አውሮፓውያን ኦርቶዶክስ ክርስትያን አገሮች የዓብይ ጾም ጀምሯል

በትናንትናው ዕለት በደቡብ ሩስያ፤ 80% እስላም በሆነባት በዳጌስታን ክልል፡ ለ ዓብይ ጾም በቅ/ጊዮርጊስ ቤ/ክርስቲያን አስቀድሰው በወጡት ምዕመናን ላይ አንድ የመሀመድ ወታደር ጥቃት አድርሶ 5 ሴት ምዕመናን በጥይት ሲገድል 4ቱን አቁስሏል። ገዳዩም በጸጥታ ጠባቂዎች በቦታው ተገድሏል።

በቤተክርስቲያኑ ውስጥ 500 የሚጠጉ እናቶች፣ ህፃናት እና አረጋውያን ጸሎት እያደረሱ ነበሩ።

አንዲት እናት ስለ ግድያው እንዲህ ብለው ነበር፦

ሙስሊሙን እዚህ ቤተክርስቲያን ውስጥ እንዳይገባ እግዚአብሔር ስለከለከለው አምላካችን አድኖናል እንጂ ብዙ ሰው ያልቅ ነበር ብዬ አምናለሁ፣ ከቤ/ክርስቲያን ውጭ በተገደሉት ንፁሃን ቁስል ብያለሁ”

የክርስቶስ ጠላት ዲያብሎስ የክርስቶስን ልጆች፡ በተለይ በዓጽዋማት እና በዓላት ጊዜ ከመዋጋት ወደ ኋላ አይልም፤ ለዚህም፡ እንደምናየው የእስማኤልን እና የዔሳውን ልጆች፡ ልዩ ልጆቹ አድርጎ መርጧቸዋል።

ደማቸው በከንቱ ለፈሰሰው ንጹሃን፤ ነፍሳቸውን ይማርላቸው!!!

BOMBSHELL UN Dossier | UN Aid Workers Raped 60,000 People as It’s Claimed Organisation Employs 3,300 Paedophiles

Posted by addisethiopia on February 16, 2018

ይህን ሲዖል የሚያስገባ ቅሌት በአገራችንም ክጥንት ጀምሮ ሲፈጽሙት ቆይተዋል። በእርዳታ ስም ሞኙን ሕዝባችንን እያታለሉ ነፍሳቸውን ለመንጠቅ ሞክረዋል፤ ሁልጊዜ ችግር የሚፈጥሩብን ለምን ይመስለናል? የተባበሩት መንግሥታት ድርጅቶች፣ የአፍሪቃው ህብረት ተቋማትና የመሳሰሉት ሉሲፈራውያኑ የመሠረቷቸው ድርጅቶች መቀመጫ አዲስ አበባ እንድትሆን መመረጧ ለምን ይመስለናል?

The dossier claims United Nations aid workers have raped 60,000 people and estimate that the organisation employs 3,300 paedophiles

A WHISTLE blower has claimed UN staff could have carried out 60,000 rapes in the last decade as aid workers indulge in sex abuse unchecked around the world.

The claim is in a bombshell dossier that former senior United Nations official Andrew Macleod handed over to DFID Secretary Priti Patel last year.

In it, Professor Macleod also estimated there are 3,300 paedophiles working for the world body’s various agencies alone.

Thousands more “predatory” sex abusers specifically target aid charity jobs to get close to vulnerable women and children.

And there has been an “endemic” cover-up of the sickening crimes for two decades, with those who attempt to blow the whistle just getting fired.

The respected academic said: “There are tens of thousands of aid workers around the world with paedophile tendencies, but if you wear a UNICEF T-shirt nobody will ask what you’re up to.

You have the impunity to do whatever you want.

It is endemic across the aid industry across the world”.

The system is at fault, and should have stopped this years ago.”

Professor MacLeod worked as an aid boss for the UN all over the world, including high profile jobs in the Balkans, Rwanda and Pakistan – where he was chief of operations of the UN’s Emergency Coordination Centre.

He is campaigning for far tougher checks on aid workers in the field as well as the abusers among them to be brought to justice, and wants the UK to lead the fight.

The professor’s grim 60,000 figure is based on UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’s admission last year that UN peacekeepers and civilian staff abused 311 victims in just one 12 month period over 2016.

The UN also admits that the likely true number of cases reported against its staff is double that, as figures outside of war zones are not centrally collated.

Prof MacLeod also estimates that only one in 10 of all rapes and assaults by UN staff are reported, as even in the UK the reporting rate is just 14 per cent.

Why Are So Many Fascist Monuments Still Standing in Italy?


My Note: Swiss historian, Aram Mattioli has called Graziani’s genocidal reign in Ethiopia:

“Reign of terror”, “for which there were no role models in the colonial history of Africa and Asia”.

Mussolini’s disregard and outright contempt for the sovereignty of Ethiopia were expressed in the following hateful words:

We spit on all Negroes of the present, past and future and their possible defenders. It will not be long, and the five continents will have to bow their heads to the fascist will.

In the late nineteen-thirties, as Benito Mussolini was preparing to host the 1942 World’s Fair, in Rome, he oversaw the construction of a new neighborhood, Esposizione Universale Roma, in the southwest of the city, to showcase Italy’s renewed imperial grandeur. The centerpiece of the district was the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, a sleek rectangular marvel with a façade of abstract arches and rows of neoclassical statues lining its base. In the end, the fair was cancelled because of the war, but the palazzo, known as the Square Colosseum, still stands in Rome today, its exterior engraved with a phrase from Mussolini’s speech, in 1935, announcing the invasion of Ethiopia, in which he described Italians as “a people of poets, artists, heroes, saints, thinkers, scientists, navigators, and transmigrants.” The invasion, and the bloody occupation that followed, would later lead to war-crimes charges against the Italian government. The building is, in other words, a relic of abhorrent Fascist aggression. Yet, far from being shunned, it is celebrated in Italy as a modernist icon. In 2004, the state recognized the palazzo as a site of “cultural interest.” In 2010, a partial restoration was completed, and five years later the fashion house Fendi moved its global headquarters there.

Italy, the first Fascist state, has had a long relationship with right-wing politics; with the election of Silvio Berlusconi, in 1994, the country also became the first to bring a neo-Fascist party to power, as part of Berlusconi’s center-right coalition.* But this alone is not enough to explain Italians’ comfort with living amid Fascist symbols. Italy was, after all, home to Western Europe’s biggest anti-Fascist resistance and its most robust postwar Communist Party. Until 2008, center-left coalitions maintained that legacy, often getting more than forty per cent of the vote in elections. So why is it that, as the United States has engaged in a contentious process of dismantling monuments to its Confederate past, and France has rid itself of all streets named after the Nazi collaborationist leader Marshall Pétain, Italy has allowed its Fascist monuments to survive unquestioned?

The sheer number of relics is one reason. When Mussolini came to power, in 1922, he was leading a new movement in a country with a formidable cultural patrimony, and he knew that he needed a multitude of markers to imprint the Fascist ideology on the landscape. Public projects, such as the Foro Mussolini sports complex, in Rome, were meant to rival those of the Medici and the Vatican, while the likeness of Il Duce, as Mussolini was known, watched over Italians in the form of statues, photographs in offices, posters at tram stops, and even prints on bathing suits. It was easy to feel, as Italo Calvino did, that Fascism had colonized Italy’s public realm. “I spent the first twenty years of my life with Mussolini’s face always in view,” the writer recalled.

In Germany, a law enacted in 1949 against Nazi apologism, which banned Hitler salutes and other public rituals, facilitated the suppression of Third Reich symbols. Italy underwent no comparable program of reëducation. Ridding Italy of thousands of Fascist memorials would have been impractical, and politically imprudent, for the Allied forces whose priority was to stabilize the volatile country and limit the power of its growing Communist Party. After the war, the Allied Control Commission’s bulletins and reports instead recommended that only the most obvious and “unaesthetic” monuments and decorations, like busts of Mussolini, be destroyed; the rest could be moved to museums, or simply be covered up with cloth and plywood. This approach set a precedent. The 1953 Scelba Law was designed to block the reconstitution of the Fascist Party and was famously vague about everything else. The ruling Christian Democratic bloc, which included many former Fascists, did not see the regime’s copious material remains as a problem, and so a more proactive policy was never put in place.

This means that, when Berlusconi brought the right-wing Italian Social Movement Party to power, his rehabilitation of Fascism was aided by an existing network of pilgrimage sites and monuments. Most notable was Predappio, Mussolini’s birthplace, where his burial crypt is situated and where shops sell Fascist and Nazi-themed shirts and other merchandise. The Mancino Law, passed in 1993, had responded to the resurgent right by sanctioning the propagation of “racial and ethnic hatred,” but it was unevenly enforced. I was living in Rome on a Fulbright fellowship in 1994, and was jolted awake more than once by shouts of “Heil Hitler!” and “Viva il Duce!” coming from a nearby pub. In the aughts, as Berlusconi cycled in and out of office, sites like Predappio surged in popularity, and preservationists of all political stripes forged alliances with the empowered right to save the Fascist monuments, which were increasingly seen as an integral part of Italy’s cultural heritage. The Foro Mussolini, like the “Square Colosseum,” is a subject of special admiration. In 2014, Matteo Renzi, the center-left Prime Minister, announced Rome’s bid for the 2024 Olympics inside the complex, which is now known as the Foro Italico, standing in front of “The Apotheosis of Fascism,” a painting that was covered up by the Allies, in 1944, because it depicts Il Duce as a God-like figure. It would be hard to imagine Angela Merkel standing in front of a painting of Hitler on a similar occasion.

In recent years, there have been some halting efforts to examine Italy’s relationship to Fascist symbols. In 2012, Ettore Viri, the right-wing mayor of Affile, included a memorial to General Rodolfo Graziani, a Nazi collaborator and an accused war criminal, in a park built with funds approved by the center-left regional government. After a public outcry, the government rescinded the funds. Recently, Viri was charged with Fascist apologism, but the memorial remains in place.

In Predappio, a new Museum of Fascism is currently under construction. Some see the museum, which is modelled on Munich’s Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism, as a much needed exercise in public education. (In 2016, I was a member of the international committee of historians that convened in Italy to evaluate the project.) Others fear that its location in Mussolini’s home town means that it will further fuel rightist nostalgia. Laura Boldrini, the president of the lower house of parliament, has been lobbying for the removal of Italy’s most egregious Fascist remnants. Her proposal, in 2015, to remove an inscription of Mussolini’s name from the Foro Italico’s obelisk prompted outcries that a “masterpiece” would be defamed.

Boldrini has often pointed to the outlawing of Nazi symbols in Germany as an example for Italy to follow. But even that model might soon be tested. In a strong showing in the elections on September 24th, the Alternative for Germany became the first far-right party to win seats in the German parliament since 1945. The right wing in Germany, lacking the benefit of emotionally charged public monuments, has been orchestrating its gatherings around fringe events such as “right rock” music concerts. Yet, at AfD events, such as a march earlier in September, in Jena, Nazi chants have begun to resound. Unless the Party takes a hard line against Fascist symbols, it’s only a matter of time, one imagines, before they reappear. In Italy, where they never went away, the risk is different: if monuments are treated merely as depoliticized aesthetic objects, then the far right can harness the ugly ideology while everyone else becomes inured. One doubts that Fendi’s employees fret about the Fascist origins of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana as they arrive at work each morning, their stilettos tapping on floors made of travertine and marble, the regime’s preferred materials. As Rosalia Vittorini, the head of Italy’s chapter of the preservationist organization docomomo, once said when asked how Italians feel about living among relics of dictatorship: “Why do you think they think anything at all about it?”

In Italy, Mussolini Makes Comeback


By STEFAN NICOLA, UPI | Feb. 19, 2010

BERLIN, Feb. 19 (UPI) — Italy’s Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini is making an unexpected popularity comeback in Italy, a phenomenon nurtured by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi over the past 15 years.

Mussolini was one of the closest allies of Hitler’s Nazi Germany; his soldiers committed brutal war crimes in Africa and the Balkans; and his regime is responsible for the deaths of around 1 million people.

Despite all that, the Duce, as Mussolini’s admirers call him, is becoming increasingly popular in Italy — even with the younger crowd.

In January, the iPhone application iMussolini became the most popular in Italy. The program, harshly condemned by Jewish groups noting the “Duce” had sent thousands of Jews into concentration camps, allowed users to read and listen to speeches of the Fascist leader. Up to 1,000 people downloaded the app each day, before Apple pulled it from its Italian store earlier this month.

The iPhone app is just one of many manifestations of the gradual rehabilitation of the Duce and his fascist dictatorship, which lasted from 1922-43.

Streets are being renamed after “regime heroes,” “good Fascists” are the stars of movies and politicians from all major parties are belittling the Fascist horrors.

In 2008, the mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, a member of the National Alliance, Mussolini’s political descendants and key allies of Berlusconi, defended the Fascist dictatorship during a tour of Israel.

Last June, Michela Brambilla, the Italian minister of tourism and a possible successor to Berlusconi, did what many interpreted as the Fascist salute during celebrations in honor of the local Carabinieri.

In any other Western European country, this would have destroyed the woman’s political career — not so in Italy. She remains in power, despite the fact that doing the salute is against the law.

These are not isolated incidents but “results and symptoms” of a larger change gripping all walks of society, writes Aram Mattioli, a historian at the University of Lucerne in Switzerland, who has researched Fascist revisionism in Italy.

His 200-page study “Viva Mussolini — An Appreciation of Fascism in Berlusconi’s Italy” (Ferdinand Schoeningh) hit book stores Friday. It describes in detail how Italy for the past 15 years has cultivated a gradual revisionism of Fascism, “focusing on the period before the anti-Semitic race laws and the ever-closer alliance with Hitler’s Nazi Germany,” Mattioli told United Press International in a telephone interview Friday.

Revisionism began to bloom starting in 1994, when the decades-long Christian Democratic-dominated government collapsed and Berlusconi shot to the scene to establish himself as the new leader.

Berlusconi’s new government, comprised of political startups and political descendants of Mussolini, in 1994 was the first in Europe to include neo-Fascists — a major watershed point in European politics.

The defeat of Communism, Berlusconi’s ability to influence the media and the fact that Italy had not really come to terms with its World War II past (unlike in Germany or Japan, no war tribunal tried Italy’s fascists) made it easier for conservative and neo-Fascist politicians to rehabilitate Mussolini during the years since.

Under Berlusconi — who himself has spoken warmly of the Duce many times — opinions that would have labeled extreme years earlier all of a sudden were used even by center-right politicians.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the hapless opposition was too busy licking its own wounds to counter that development.

This revisionism affects Italy as a whole, Mattioli said. “I see a close connection between the revisionist tendencies and the inner state of today’s Italy, were political culture has reached a low-point,” he told UPI. “Italy has entered a state of post-democracy. Democracy is still formally existent but policies are increasingly illiberal.”

Berlusconi’s government has in the past been criticized for cracking down on illegal immigrants. Mattioli also warns of a general militarization of society that has seen soldiers doing police work and citizens establishing vigilante groups.

Young people increasingly back this political development.

Italian newspaper La Stampa Thursday published a poll that indicated that 45 percent of young Italians sympathize with xenophobic or racist ideologies.

These numbers worry Mattioli, who has a deep sympathy for Italy, from where his great-grandfather emigrated to Switzerland in the late 19th century.

“The European Union needs to more closely watch Italy and should try to slow down the country’s negative development,” Mattioli said.

Racists All Over The World Are Going Crazy Over The ‘Cheddar Man’

Posted by addisethiopia on February 11, 2018

የብሪታኒያ ነዋሪዎች ቆዳቸው ቡናማጥቁር፣ ጥቅልል ፀጉር እና ሰማያዊ ዓይኖች ነበሯቸው

ተመራማሪዎች እንደሚሉት ..አ በ 1903 .ም የተገኘው አጽም እንደሚያሳየው እንግሊዝ አገር ይኖሩ የነበሩ ጥንታውያን ሰዎች ቆዳቸው ቡናማጥቁር፣ ጥቅልል ፀጉር እና ሰማያዊ ዓይኖች ነበሯቸው። መንጣት የጀመሩት የፀሀይ ቪታሚን የጎደላቸው የዔሳውና እስማኤል ዘሮች ከመካከለኛው ምስራቅ ተሰደው ከኢትዮጵያ ከሄዱት ሰዎች ጋር መደበላለቅ ከጀመሩ በኋላ ነበር።

Tests conducted on the skeleton of an ancient human ancestor who lived in England show he had “dark to black” skin, researchers said.

Racist all over the country are going crazy over this news. They are livid about it! I knew more truths would be coming….. i predict suicide rates may start to rise among the woods in Europe and beyond.

How Cheddar Man Shatters Accepted Views Of Immigration


The discovery that the 10,000-year-old original Briton is dark-skinned absolutely has bearing on contemporary debates on race and migration

You’ve got to confess it’s worthy of chuckles and cackles.

A made-for-Internet scientific discovery that at the same time strikes at the core of modern racial strife. An announcement Wednesday that DNA tests on the oldest complete skeleton in Britain, that heart and ancestral home of many white people around the world, suggest that the first modern Briton was blue-eyed, yes, but very dark-skinned and curly-haired.

 

The Cheddar Man, named thus for the English village of Cheddar where his skeleton was discovered in 1903, is about 10,000 years old.

To add salt to a supremacist’s wound, scientists said that the genes for lighter skin likely came from, you got it, immigrants from the Middle East.

Oh snap.

Dark-skinned native Britons and light-skinned immigrants.

It’s like reaching into the eye of a storm and fitting it with sunglasses.

Disorienting.

Those brave lads and fair maidens on glorious historical British dramas on TV — descendents of immigrants.

The image of God himself, majestic, kindly old white guy in white robes with flowing white beard — fashioned on immigrants.

Imagine being Nigel Farage, the former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, who proudly stood in front of a Nazi-era-like poster with the slogan, “Breaking point: the EU has failed us all,” and a photo of a winding lineup of migrants of colour.

Now he would have to change that slogan to “Breaking point: I come from them. I am them.” Such horror.

No wonder there were hopeful comments online about Cheddar Man such as, “Who’s to say the person’s not a foreign visitor” or a call to index this as “fake news,” or the insistence that this was a finding driven by a social justice agenda to force poor victimized British people into accepting mass migration.

The Cheddar Man, 10,000 years old though he may be, absolutely has bearing on contemporary debates on race and migration.

This discovery of a dark-skinned original Briton doesn’t put the race genie back into the bottle in an equalizing “we’re all immigrants” kind of way.

On the contrary, in exposing the racial fluidity of Britons, Cheddar Man delivers a sucker punch to toxic ideas that drive the white power mobs who in turn fuel xenophobic policies. It reveals the basis of their quick codes equating skin colour to valour or danger as nothing but fear-based fiction.

Scientists have long argued that race is not a biological concept. People of one race — or at least people who can be grouped together with similar physical traits — are not genetically homogenous.

The concept of races evolved as a way of justifying slavery and to maintain an economy founded on slave labour; it was easier to rationalize the brutalization of the “savage” than to face the unconscionable alternative.

From then on, it continues to be a favoured tool to demonize “the other.”

Around the world, oppressor groups have always found identity a useful tool with which to assert themselves as inherently superior, as “natural” holders of power, be it on the basis of race, gender, sexual identity, religious identity, tribal identity or caste.

That race isn’t real does not mean racism isn’t real.

Anti-Black racism is so widespread and global in scope, that I wish scientists would hurry up and create a bust out of the fossils of the 750,000-year old Peking Man, for instance, and in keeping with the Out of Africa theory, definitively establish Blackness as the root ancestry of Chinese people.

Such knowledge might have given the Hubei Provincial Museum in Wuhan pause before it displayed a photography exhibit that juxtaposed wild African animals with Black African people.

I wish they were able create a bust that would depict an original “Indian Man,” one who existed before the Aryans and Dravidians did 5,000 years ago, as black-skinned — darker the better. Such knowledge might inject a modicum of humility before privileged Indians wreak racist violence on African students and caste-related violence on Dalits.

When nations look to figure out where they’re going next, it makes sense sometimes to turn back and look at the past for clues.

Being reminded of a shared heritage with people they consider coming from “s—hole” countries, might give Western leaders, including a certain U.S. president, a few pointers as they ponder immigration policies.

These leaders might read data helpfully put forward by Arvind Magesan, associate professor of economics, University of Calgary, in The Conversation. That might help them discover that although their own policies play a part in making those countries “s—holes,” those immigrants continue to be better educated, better employed (although lower-paid) than those of, shall we say, “Norway-like” countries.

This is one way the discovery of Cheddar Man’s skin colour could have the power to force aside the ahistorical lens with which we view our fellow humans.

At least for a few days.

The Least Free Countries On Earth – You Probably Will Not Guess #1

Posted by addisethiopia on February 10, 2018

Access to the internet has largely led to the spread of information, cultures and ideas. The proliferation of the internet, as well as the hyper-connectivity of today’s society, often leads to the feeling that the world is getting smaller, that we’re largely interconnected, and that the online world is a free one.

While access to the internet, and the ability to navigate it freely, may sometimes seem like a certainty, less than one-fourth of the world’s internet users actually reside in countries where the internet is technically designated “free.” In fact, according to Freedom House’s 2017 Freedom on the Net report, online manipulation and disinformation tactics are on the rise, leading to a seventh consecutive year of overall decline in internet freedom across the globe.

Freedom House ranked 65 countries worldwide on their level of censorship. Countries were given an overall total score based on 21 questions and nearly 100 subquestions, divided into three categories: obstacles to access, limits on content and violations of user rights.

According to the Freedom House methodology, the top 10 most censored countries are:

In addition to an overall censorship score, Freedom House documented the prevalence of different levels of censorship used by each country to control their citizens’ access to content. Among the nine types of internet controls used were four types we outlined visually, including:

  • Countries that block political, social or religious content: These countries block or filter domains, URLS or keywords with the goal of limiting access to specific content.

  • Countries that block social media/communication apps: These countries either block entire social media/communication applications or have temporarily or permanently blocked the key functions of these applications with the goal of preventing communication and information sharing.

  • Countries that arrest, detain or imprison bloggers or ICT users for posting political/social content: These countries have arrested, detained or imprisoned individuals as an act of retaliation for digital expression. (Brief detentions for interrogation are not reflected.)

  • Countries that use pro-government commentators: There are strong indications that these countries employ paid individuals to manipulate the discussion online.

Other key takeaways from the study include:

  • Almost half of the countries assessed—32 out of 65—have been on an overall decline in internet freedom since June 2016.

  • China continued to be the worst abuser of internet freedom for a third consecutive year.

  • The United States experienced a decline in internet freedom, falling two places from the fourth least censored country in 2016 to the sixth least censored country in 2017. The decline was largely due to the spread of disinformation and hyperpartisan content during the 2016 election, as well as the uptick in harassment and threats against journalists in the country.

  • Thirteen countries improved in their internet freedom score, including Libya, Bangladesh, and Uzbekistan. However, broad shifts in policy across these countries were not seen.

Countries that block political, social or religious content:

Countries that block social media/communication apps:

Countries that arrest, detain or imprison bloggers or ICT users for posting political/social content:

Countries that use pro-government commentators:

My Note: Some sort of sane censorship is a rational thing to do for such countries like Ethiopia that face tremendous challenges in dealing with their numerous enemies. Online manipulation and disinformation tactics are used by the lords of darkness who’ve got the resources to manipulate the less-informed gullible world. Racism, Racialism, Tribalism, Perversion etc. are some of the examples.
