The Deceitful Nobel Peace Laureate PM Massacring Christians with Lies & Manipulations

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 27, 2020

[John 10:10]

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy”

👉 Noble Peace Prize = License for Genocide

👉 During the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony in Oslo it was told that Abiy Ahmed’s Father is OROMO, and his mother AMHARA

But 6 months later the Illegitimate prime Minister Abiy Ahmed confessed to an Oromo television station that both his father and mother are ethnic Oromos and Muslims.

👉 This deceitful, wicked and evil person always lied and continues to lie.

Each of the following descriptions of deceitful leaders perfectly apply to Abiy Ahmed and the forty thieves:

👉 Deceitful Leaders use manipulative behaviors to achieve goals.

👉 Deceitful Leaders display a low tolerance for open communication. They control information.

👉 Deceitful Leaders divide people and focus on narrow issues that may be part of an unstated, deceitful goal.

👉 Deceitful Leaders give orders and specific direction sometimes without rationale.

👉 Deceitful Leaders use emotions (with bias toward negative ones).

👉 Deceitful Leaders want control and dutiful obedience; “punishing” those who are “out of line.” Individual initiative is rarely appreciated.

👉 Deceitful Leaders do not hesitate to use positional authority to further an agenda.

👉 Deceitful Leaders lack humility.

👉 Deceitful Leaders often mislead with half-truths, lies of omission, feigned ignorance or rationalization.

👉 Deceitful Leaders criticize, intimidate and blame.

Case #1

👉 Debunked: No, These Photos Don’t Show The Destruction of Aksoum Airport in Ethiopia

Aksoum Airport, located in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, was damaged on November 22, according to Ethiopian news agency ENA, as part of the ongoing conflict between the Ethiopian army and the separatist Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). However, some of the photos circulating online that are said to show the airport were actually taken during conflicts in Libya and Ukraine.

On November 22, the Ethiopian national press agency ENA reported that Aksoum Airport in the northern province of Tigray had been destroyed by “TPLF extremists”, or members of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. The Ethiopian army has been leading an offensive against this group for the past three weeks.

On the same day, images showing the damaged interior of an airport terminal were shared hundreds of times on Facebook. In the post, the user laments the destruction of Aksoum Airport.

However, a reverse image search (click here to find out how) quickly shows that these images aren’t, in fact, of Aksoum Airport. The first two photos show Tripoli Airport in Libya. They were taken by journalist Marine Olivesi on September 2, 2014:

This Facebook post from November 22 also claims to show photos of the destroyed airport in Aksoum.

However, the photo below is actually an image of Donetsk Airport in Ukraine. It was taken from a video filmed by CNN correspondents on February 2, 2015. The Facebook page Sidaama Today was quick to criticise the misuse of this image outside of its original context.

Case #2

👉 Debunked: Photo of Weapons Seized in Ethiopia Was Taken Before Tigray Crisis

As the conflict between Ethiopia’s government and dissident Tigray forces escalates, a photograph circulating on social networks purports to show weapons handed over by soldiers of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). The claim is false; the weapons were intercepted at the Sudanese border back in 2008.

The image was posted on Facebook on November 9, 2020, five days after Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ordered troops, tanks and warplanes into the northern Tigray region in response to what he said were attacks on federal military camps orchestrated by the TPLF.

Written in Amharic, the post’s caption translates into English as: “Guns soldiers were armed with!! Following the capture of the town of Dansha by our heroes, the traitors are handing in their handguns after coming out of their hideouts”.

The image shows hundreds of handguns lined up on a blue tarp on the floor. Men in military uniforms can be seen arranging the pistols while another takes a picture of the scene. Other men dressed in civilian clothes look on.

AFP journalists reported from the town of Dansha on November 10, 2020, soon after the Ethiopian army took control of the western Tigrayan town. Since then, the army said its forces have reached within 60 kilometers (37 miles) of Tigray’s capital Mekele.

However, this photo is unrelated to the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia and in fact shows weapons confiscated at the Sudanese border by Ethiopian security back in 2008.

Not weapons from TPLF soldiers

A reverse image search shows that the original photo was used in local media reporting the event. According to Ethiopian site Ezega, Ethiopian security intercepted weapons smuggled through the Tigray region via Sudan.

“The real origin of the shipment and the intended recipients are still unknown. Ethiopia has in the past accused Eritrea for incursions and support for domestic opposition in Amhara and Oromia regions”, it reads.

The story was picked up by Africa News as well as Addis Standard, one of Ethiopia’s leading news outlets.

የፈረንሳዩ AFP ስለ ማይካድራ | ፎቶውም መረጃውም ሐሰት ነበር ፥ ጨፍጫፊው የአብይ አህመድ ሠራዊት ነው

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 24, 2020

የማይካድራን ጭፍጨፋ የሚያሳይ ነው” በሚል ቅጥፈት በብዙ ሜዲያዎችና ማህበረሰባዊ ድሕረ ገጾች ተሰራጭቶ የነበረው ምስል ሐሰት ነው፤ ምስሉ በ 2004 በታይላንድ በደረሰው ሱናሚ የተጎዱ ሰዎችን ያሳያል ሲል የፈረንሳዩ የዜና ወኪል አስታውቋል።

👉 በሱዳን የስደተኞች መጠለያ ካምፕ ውስጥ ይህ የፈረንሳይ የዜና ወኪል ያነጋገራቸው በርካታ ስደተኞች የማይካድራ ጭፍጨፋ በፌደራል ጦር ወታደሮች ነው የተፈጸመው ሲሉ ተደምጠዋል፡፡

ፋሺስቱ ግራኝ በኢትዮጵያውያን ሕፃናትና እናቶቻቸው ላይ ቦንብ ያዘንባል፤ “የራሱን ልጆች” እና እናታቸውን ግን ወደ አሜሪካ ልኳል! ዋው! የዚህ የጦር ወንጀለኛ ቤተሰብ አባላት ታድነው መያዝ አለባችው!

👉 ግን ምን ዓይነት ቅሌት ነው?! በጣም አሳፋሪና አስቀያሚ የሆነ ከንቱ ትውልድ!

👉 These Were Thai Victims of The 2004 Tsunami and Not People Killed In Ethiopia’s Tigray Conflict

A photograph has been shared hundreds of times on Facebook alongside the claim that it shows victims of a massacre perpetrated against Amharas – one of Ethiopia’s major ethnolinguistic groups – in the northern town of Mai-Kadra, located in the restive Tigray region. However, this claim is false; the image shows victims of a tsunami that hit Thailand and other Asian countries in 2004.

The image was used in this post shared more than 900 times on Facebook since November 11, 2020.

Written in Amharic, the caption translates into English as: “In the town of Mai-Kadra, Amharas are being exterminated. We are dying and begging you to stop.” The post refers to events in Ethiopia, where an armed conflict in the northern region of Tigray has led to mass casualties and the displacement of thousands.

The image shows rows of bodies on the ground, covered with plastic. Two areas of the picture have been obscured in red.

However, this photo is unrelated to the fighting in Ethiopia and, in fact, shows Thai victims of the devastating Boxing Day tsunami that slammed into large parts of Asia and the Far East 16 years ago.

Not bodies from Tigray

A reverse image search shows that the original photo was captured by David Longstreath in Takuapa, Thailand on December 30, 2004. The photo is credited to Associated Press and the caption reads: “Thais walk outside a Buddhist temple Thursday, Dec. 30, 2004, near Takuapa, Thailand, where more than 1,000 bodies have been gathered.”

Contacted by Agence France-Presse Fact Check, Longstreath said the image was taken in Khao Lak, Thailand following the tsunami.

These dead were collected from the area,” he said.

The obscured parts of the picture in the misleading Facebook post show people walking among the corpses.

Agence France-Presse reported that six weeks after the deadly tsunamis caused by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake west of the Indonesian island of Sumatra on December 26, 2004, the number of dead had risen to 295,000.

More than 5,300 of those casualties were reported from Thailand.

Another post from April 2020 used the same image and claimed it showed people who died from Covid-19.Agence France-Presse Fact Check debunked it.

What happened in Mai-Kadra?

According to Amnesty International, hundreds of people were “stabbed or hacked to death” in Mai-Kadra, a town in the South West Zone of Ethiopia’s Tigray Region, on the night of November 9, 2020.

However, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet Jeria noted that the Amnesty International claims “have not yet been fully verified” and she urged a full inquiry.

If confirmed as having been deliberately carried out by a party to the current fighting, these killings of civilians would of course amount to war crimes,” she said.

A political party from Tigray’s neighbouring Amhara region went a step further with a statement that claimed the victims were Amharas, one of Ethiopia’s largest ethnic and linguistic groups.

While we expect the details of casualties to be revealed by the federal government, we could confirm that Amhara people living in the town of Maikadra, which is now captured by the defense forces, have been subjected to genocide by the TPLF,” said the Prosperity Party in reference to the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

However, several refugees interviewed by Agence France-Presse in a Sudanese refugee camp were quoted saying the atrocities were committed by federal army troops.
