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።

  • 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 ]

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.

Groundhog Day 2018: The Ethiopian Mountain Groundhog Predicts Memo Will Bring Obama, Clinton and Others to Jail

Posted by addisethiopia on February 2, 2018

The 130-year-old custom dictates that if the groundhog emerges from his hole and sees his own shadow, he will retreat back to its den to signify winter will last a further six week.“

What is a Groundhog? Where do they live? What do they eat? Fun facts

The day when a rodent named Punxsutawney Phil makes a weather prediction about the next six weeks – has arrived. But what actually is a groundhog, where do they live and what do they eat?

Along with the infamous Phil from Pennsylvania, there is also General Lee, Buckeye Chuck and another whole host of groundhogs who help predict whether winter arrives early.

The 130-year-old custom dictates that if the groundhog emerges from his hole and sees his own shadow, he will retreat back to its den to signify winter will last a further six weeks.

But if there are cloudy skies when the groundhog – a rodent from the marmota squirrel family – comes above ground – that means the spring season will arrive early.

This year, Phil decided the US will face another six weeks of winter as he turned to see his shadow in Punxsutawney today.

But What Is A Groundhog?

A groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots.

The groundhog was first scientifically described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758.

Measuring about 65cm (26 inches), groundhogs are natural diggers, with short and powerful limbs and short, thick claws.

The animal is covered in two coats of fur, with a grey undercoat underneath and a longer, thicker coat with a burnt orange or reddish hue which gives it a frosted appearance.

The groundhog prefers open country and the edges of woodland, and is rarely far from a burrow entrance.

In the wild, groundhogs can live up to six years with two or three being average.

Where Do Groundhogs Live?

The groundhog is rarely found far from its burrow entrance and far prefers open country and the edges of woodland.

The groundhog can be a pest for farmers – as their keen burrowing skills make them serious nuisance animals around farms and gardens.

The clearing of forests provided the creature with a much more suitable habitat, and so the groundhog population is probably higher now than it was before the arrival of European settlers in North America.

However, groundhogs are often hunted for sport, which tends to control their numbers.

What Do They Eat?

Groundhogs are mostly herbivorous and primarily eat wild grasses and other vegetation, such as berries and agricultural crops.

Clover, alfalfa, dandelion, and coltsfoot are some of a groundhog’s favourite foods.

The first Groundhog Day was celebrated officially at Gobler’s Knob

The also eat grubs, grasshoppers, insects, snails and other small animals but are much less into eating other animals unlike many other Sciuridae.

More like squirrels in this respect, they also have been observed sitting up eating nuts such as shagbark hickory – although they don’t store their snacks for future use.

The first Groundhog Day was celebrated officially at Gobler’s Knob, Punxsutawney on February 2, 1887.

Local newspaper editor Clymer Freas came up with the idea after saying that Phil was America’s official groundhog meteorologist.

Jim Caviezel: ‘Passion of the Christ’ Sequel Will Be ‘Biggest Film in History’

Posted by addisethiopia on February 1, 2018

Jim Caviezel, the actor who memorably portrayed Jesus in director Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, says that Gibson is planning a sequel that will be “the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”

The Passion is already one the biggest films in history. Fourteen years on it still holds the domestic box office record for an R-rated movie ($371 million). From Gethsemane to Golgotha, The Passion told the story of the last 12 hours of Christ’s life — his arrest, trials, torture, and crucifixion. The Faithful turned out in droves despite an unprecedented campaign within the elite media to smear a film they had not seen as anti-Semitic — which it is not.

The 49-year-old Caviezel says he is back on board to portray Jesus. The story will reportedly revolve around Christ’s resurrection. “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” he told USA Today. “It’s great. Stay tuned.”

Hollywood’s anti-Christian bigotry was apparent in every major studios’ incomprehensible refusal to distribute The Passion, a film helmed by a huge star, a proven talent who had already won a Best Director Oscar for Braveheart. Gibson, however, got the last laugh.

Off a mere $30 million budget, Gibson still managed to get his film seen in enough theaters worldwide to gross a breathtaking $611 million.

The success of The Passion, which surprised no one who lives in the real world, immediately changed Hollywood. An industry that had been openly hostile to Christians almost immediately began producing and releasing faith-based films, a sea change that continues to this day.

Last year, Gibson talked a little bit about his plans, “The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God,” he told USA Today. “We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing.”

Selected Comments:

Finally! A movie I can go see!!

Gibson is proof that God can use fallible humans for His purposes. Gibson is not perfect, but the message of Christ told through Gibson’s work, (namely, The Passion of The Christ) certainly is.

The Passion of the Christ saved a lot of Souls, and if this Movie sticks to the Truth of the Bible, many more Souls will be saved.

I’m not even a religious person, but I am very excited for this film. It’s bound to upset a lot of people. Plus, Passion was by far the best film ever made about Jesus’s last moments. If its anything like the first movie, it will be a massive success. PLEASE just make it accurate.

Then you can do one on the life of Paul since Hollywood seems desperate to suppress what he teaches. Something about that Grace message….

Jesus Christ =

1. God with us
2. The Light of the world
3. Son of David
4. The Lamb of God…
5. WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD
6. SALVATION
7. DELIVERANCE
8. SON OF GOD
9. SECOND PERSON OF THE TRINITY
10. Lion of the Tribe of Judah

I refuse to go to the theaters but for this movie I will make an exception

My Note: Intersting, some of the actors who’ve played in „The Passion of The Christ“ have identical initials as:

  • Jesus Christ = JC
  • Jim Caviezel: JC – The Passion of The Christ (2004)
  • Christo Jivkov: CJ – ‘JohnThe Passion of The Christ (2004)
  • Mother Mariam / Mary = MM
  • Maia Morgenstern = MM (also Mary Magdalene)
  • Monica Anna Maria Bellucci = MM (Played Mary Magdalene)

China Has Banned Hip-Hop Culture and Actors with Tattoos from Appearing on Television

Posted by addisethiopia on January 24, 2018

Tasteless, Vulgar And Obscene

The country’s top media regulator — the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China (SAPPRFT) — now “specifically requires that programs should not feature actors with tattoos [or depict] hip hop culture, sub-culture (non-mainstream culture) and dispirited culture (decadent culture),” Sina, a Chinese news outlet, reports.

Gao Changli, director of the administration’s publicity department, outlined four “Don’t” rules on Friday:

Absolutely do not use actors whose heart and morality are not aligned with the party and whose morality is not noble
Absolutely do not use actors who are tasteless, vulgar and obscene
Absolutely do not use actors whose ideological level is low and have no class
Absolutely do not use actors with stains, scandals and problematic moral integrity

The ban follows the removal of the prominent rapper GAI from Hunan TV’s Singer, a hit competition show. Clips of GAI, whose real name is Zhou Yan, were also removed from China Hunan TV’s official Youtube Channel, but no official explanation has been given. He does however appear in the show’s trailer:

Female Chess Champ will Skip Tournament, Lose Titles in Protest of Dress Codes for Female Competitors in Saudi Arabia

A two-time female world chess champion from the Ukraine, has decided to skip an upcoming tournament in Saudi Arabia even though doing so will cause her to lose her titles.

Because she refuses to be treated like a “secondary creature” in the oppressive Saudi Kingdom.

Champion Anna Muzychuk is boycotting the upcoming tournament in Saudi Arabia to make a stand for women’s rights, she said in a December 23 social media post.

In a few days I am going to lose two world champion titles – one by one,” Muzychuk wrote. “Just because I decided not to go to Saudi Arabia. Not to play by someone’s rules, not to wear abaya, not to be accompanied outside, and altogether no to feel myself a secondary creature.”

Muzychuk went on to say how proud she is of her titles, but that she is ready to stand for her principles. Her action will cause her to miss out on the possibility of winning a grand prize of $2 million put up by crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

I was expected to earn more than I do in a dozen of events combined,” Muzychuk said of missing out on have a shot to take home the winner’s purse.

All that is annoying, but the most upsetting thing is that almost nobody really cares,” Muzychuk continued. “That is a really bitter feeling, still not the one to change my principles,” she wrote.

Muzychuk concluded her post saying that her sister Mariya shares her views and promised, “And, yes, for those few who care – we’ll be back.”

The controversy over what female contestants would wear at the tournament had already become a sticking point. Still, the World Chess Federation declared a victory of sorts when it negotiated a dress code it termed“historic,” which excluded full-body abayas and substituted headscarves and high-necked white blouses. The change in dress code, though, wasn’t enough for Muzychuk and her sister who still decided not to compete.

Other controversies have also shaken the tournament. The Saudi authorities refused to invite Israeli competitors, and the teams from Iran and Qatar have thus far refused to accept an invitation over regional political rivalries.

Selected Comments:

Bravo Anna, you are an inspiration to women to reject this belief system. There are not many who would sacrifice what you are to live their values.

Thanks for standing up to these med evil butchers

Good for you Anna and shame on the World Chess Federation for it’s part in this farce. You are a true role model. The tournament should be held in locations that do not have such ridiculous and insane conditions for any participant. And to think, we have feminists wanting that here, incredible.

Yes. Her beliefs are more important to her than a trophy. Outstanding!

Congratulations Anna Muzychuk! A true winner would never succumb to the injustice of islam.

Where’s the feminist screechers when it’s a real issue?

Wave a two dollar bill under Hillary’s nose and she would sell out the entire woman’s movement… oh, the Saudi’s already did? Nevermind.

How can they hold a credible Chess tournament in Saudi Arabia if the Israeli team is barred and females who reject being second-class humans are also barred? Saudi Arabia seemed to be making some small progress but this shows they are still a backward Muslim country.

Backward is a compliment !! they are well beyond backward. If it weren’t for Western Christian civilization they would still be in the STONE AGE

..and how can they hold a credible tournament when the person holding the World champion Title does not want to participate in this charade?!

Red Sun Phenomenon ‘Caused by Hurricane Ophelia’

Posted by addisethiopia on October 16, 2017

An “unusual” reddish sky and red-looking sun have been reported across many parts of England.

The phenomenon was initially seen in the west of England and Wales before spreading to other areas.

BBC weather presenter Simon King said it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia dragging in tropical air and dust from the Sahara.

He added that debris from forest fires in Portugal and Spain was also playing a part.

The dust has caused shorter wavelength blue light to be scattered, making it appear red.

Meanwhile, hundreds took to Twitter to share their theories and snaps of the unusual red sun and yellow skies.

Using the hashtags #redsun and #ophelia, pictures were posted with earnest tags insisting that: “There is NO colour correction on this image”.

As the skies turned beige over London, Hugh Bennett‏ wondered if: “This is what it must have been like living in the olden days when everything was sepia”, while James McNicholas‏ blamed “the hipsters” for putting “an Instagram filter” on the city.

‘Freaking us out’

But trending alongside #redsun, #yellowsky and #orangesky was the hashtag #apocalypse.

Like many Ben Shephard posted that: “Not messing around this light is really freaking us out!”, while Henry Tudor, said: “This weird light is very disturbing. I keep expecting four blokes on horses to home galloping out of the sky.”

Elliot Wagland said: “I just looked out of the window and it appears the world is about to end”, and Archer Hampson‏ said: “Somebody said we should head outside because the world was ending. We thought we’d take our cameras.”

Louise Lucas, meanwhile, wanted to know if she had missed the memo “about going home early due to #apocalypse?!” and Anthony Court posted that‏: “If the world does end -please could it be before 10pm tonight when I start my nightshift.”

Britain’s Martian sky:

Hurricane Ophelia creates ghostly red phenomenon as Saharan dust and debris from Spanish forest fires are carried on 80mph winds across the Atlantic

Britain was cast in an eerie Martian gloom as Saharan dust whipped across the Atlantic by Hurricane Ophelia shrouded the sun turning skies over the nation red. The storm is believed to have picked up dust from North Africa and debris from forest fires in Spain and Portugal as it travelled towards the UK. Skies over London have been covered in a murky orange haze as the desert dust mixes with clouds, offering residents in the capital a stark contrast to the grey that usually greets them at this time of year.

Jesus. Said. Luke 21:10-11 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Passengers Board Last Ever Flight 666 To Hel On Friday The 13th

Posted by addisethiopia on October 13, 2017

Fearless flyers will laugh in the face of superstition today when they board the last ever Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th. Travelling on the “unluckiest day of the year” could save you some pounds, but a journey straight to HEL on the 13th hour of the superstitious date is one flight most would probably like to avoid.

Nordic airline Finnair has flown brave passengers from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Helsinki, Finland, on Friday the 13th since 2006.

However, today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has decided to retire the flight number.

Today will actually be the final time that our AY666 flight flies to HEL,” a spokesperson for the airline said.

As of October 29, some of our flight numbers in our network will change and our AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to AY954.

In 11 years, we’ve flown 21 times the AY666 flight to HEL on Friday the 13th.”

Can it get worse?

Thankfully, veteran pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto says he is not superstitious or scared about flying on Friday the 13th.

It has been quite a joke among the pilots,” he said previously.

I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.

If there’s some passenger who is anxious about this 666, our cabin crew is always happy to help them.”

Flight 666 is set to depart from the Danish capital at 1:20pm and is scheduled to arrive in Helsinki shortly before 4pm.

But why is Friday the 13th considered to be so unlucky? It has biblical origins and also been linked to the Knights Templar.
