The 3rd Phase of Oromo Jihad Against Christian Tigray | 1985

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

✞✞✞[ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፴፪፥ ፮፡፯]✞✞✞

ደንቆሮ ብልሃተኛም ያልሆንህ ሕዝብ ሆይ፥ ለእግዚአብሔር ይህንን ትመልሳለህ? የገዛህ አባትህ አይደለምን? የፈጠረህና ያጸናህ እርሱ ነው። የዱሮውን ዘመን አስብ፥ የብዙ ትውልድንም ዓመታት አስተውል፤ አባትህን ጠይቅ፥ ያስታውቅህማል፤ ሽማግሌዎችህን ጠይቅ፥ ይነግሩህማል።”

[Deuteronomy 32:6-7]
Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator,who made you and formed you?Remember the days of old, Consider the years of all generations. Ask your father, and he will inform you, Your elders, and they will tell you.

✞✞✞ [ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፬፡፱፤፲] ✞✞✞

እግዚአብሔር። ሕዝቡን ወደ እኔ ሰብስብ፥ በምድርም በሕይወት በሚኖሩበት ዘመን ሁሉ እኔን መፍራት ይማሩ ዘንድ፥ ልጆቻቸውንም ያስተምሩ ዘንድ ቃሌን አሰማቸዋለሁ ብሎ በተናገረኝ ጊዜ፥ በአምላክህ በእግዚአብሔር ፊት በኮሬብ በቆምህበት ቀን ዓይኖችህ ያዩትን ነገር እንዳትረሳ፥ በሕይወትህም ዘመን ሁሉ ከልብህ እንዳይወድቅ ተጠንቀቅ፥ ነፍስህንም በትጋት ጠብቅ፤ ለልጆችህም ለልጅ ልጆችህም አስታውቀው።

[Deuteronomy 4:9-10]
“Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.”

💭 History repeats itself:

🔥 Amhara & Oromos bombing Tigray, Using Rape, Hunger & forced resettlement (Mengistu did it back then, Ahmed will do the same now) as a Weapon against People in Tigray for the past 130 years:-

👉 1. Menelik II. (1844 – 1913)

The Great Ethiopian Famine of 1888-1892

The great famine is estimated to have caused 3.5 million deaths. During Emperor Menilik’s Reign, Tigray was split into two regions, one of which he sold to the Italians who later named it Eritrea. Only two months after the death of Emperor Yohaness lV , Menelik signed the Wuchale treaty of 2 May 1889 conceding Eritrea to the Italians. It was not only Eritrea that Menelik gave away, he also had a hand in letting Djibouti be part of the French protectorate when he agreed the border demarcation with the French in 1887. Some huge parts of Tigray were put under Gonder. The Southern part, places like present day Alamata, Kobo etc. were put under Wello Amhara administration.

👉 2. Haile Selassie (1892 – 1975)

In 1943, at the request of the Emperor Haile Selassie, the Royal British Airforce bombed two towns – Mekelle and Corbetta. Thousands of defenseless civilians lost their lives as a result of aerial bombardment. It is recorded that ‘on 14th October [1943] 54 bombs dropped in Mekelle, 6th October 14 bombs followed by another 16 bombs on 9thOctober in Hintalo, 7th/9th October 32 bombs in Corbetta’. Between 2 and 5 million’ people died between 1958 and 1977 as a cumulative result. Haile Selassie, who was emperor at the time, refused to send any significant basic emergency food aid to the province of Tigray,

👉 3. Mengistu Hailemariam (1937 – )

1979 – 1985 + 1987

Due to organized government policies that deliberately multiplied the effects of the famine, around 1.2 million people died from this famine. Mengistu & his Children still alive & ‘well’ while Tigrayans starving again.

👉 4. Abiy Ahmed Ali (1976 – )

2018 – Until today: probably up to 500.000 already dead. 😠😠😠 😢😢😢 Unlike the past famine there is no natural or man-made drought, rather, Abiy simply uses war and hunger as a weapon. Abiy Ahmed sent his kids to America for safety, while bombing & starving Tigrayan kids!

In the past, and at present, the OLF (Oromo Liberation Front/ OLA) works together with Isaias Afewerkis’ ELF, TPLF, PP, ANM, EZEMA etc. So, are they all conspiring together against the ancient Christian people of Tigray so that they could be able to replace Ethiopia and create an Antichrist Islamic ‘Cush’ Caliphate of Oromia?

VOA: Ethiopian Holy City Reels in #TigrayGenocide | የኢትዮጵያ ቅድስት ከተማ በትግራይ ጭፍጨፋ ችግር ውስጥ ገብታለች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

In past years, pilgrims and tourists have flocked to Axum, a holy city in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Today, many of its streets are quiet, and many businesses are closed due to more than seven months of war involving the national government and a regional political party that led the ruling coalition for three decades. Continuing battles in the countryside are deepening a strain on the city.

G7 Protests | Environmentalists + ‘Israel-Palestine’ Hijacking #TigrayGenocide?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

I am not being selfless, but frankly speaking, at this moment, compared with The #TigrayGenocide, the two events (Environment + Palestine) are less important, superfluous and a waste of time. It would have been more important for these folks if they would have been able to give their extra voices to the Tigrayan Ethiopians and Burmese protesters.

👉 Imagine The global outrage if The 150,000 killed, 15,000 raped women and millions displaced and starved Tigrayan Ethiopians had actually been Palestinian, and the aggressors Israeli Troops. We’re observing this right now! Watch how the world reacts to the current escalated Fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants.

The same thing happening over and over again. I was old enough to remember the 2001 United Nations meeting on racism in Durban, South Africa:

💭 The Racism Walkout: The Overview; U.S. And Israelis Quit Racism Talks Over Denunciation„

💭 Thousands protest over climate change, Ethiopia and Myanmar at G7 summit

Thousands of protesters have marched through the streets of Cornwall on day two of the G7 summit as leaders of the world’s richest nations gathered to discuss coronavirus and other key issues.

Members and supporters of Extinction Rebellion walked through the town of Falmouth playing drums, chanting and displaying artwork campaigning against the use of fossil fuels, during their second day of protests.

Separately, more than 1,000 people protested against the crisis in the Ethiopian region of Tigray while thousands also gathered to raise awareness of the coup d’etat by the military in Myanmar.

Several of the protest groups gathered in Church Street Car Park – around 500 metres from the media base of the G7 – where they held rallies and chanted passionately before parading past the centre.

Ethiopian protesters were heard shouting “(Prime Minister of Ethiopia) Abiy is a criminal”, “G7 act now” and “Stop Abiy’s war crimes” at their rally.

They held up banners and the flag of Tigray before setting off a smoke flare.

Athy Mruz, 41, was one of the organisers of the Ethiopian rally and is a member of campaign group Tigray Youth Network.

The G7 has a meeting today and we are demanding they take action against our unelected prime minister who is committing genocide upon the Tigrayan people,” she told PA.

We no longer are OK with them simply condemning it, we want them to actually take action as we estimate over 150,000 people have been killed while over 15,000 women have been raped. There’s starvation and displacement for millions of people. We can’t wait any more.

This is not a famine – this is not happening because Tigray is poor, it is man-made. It is being conducted, plotted and orchestrated by our unelected prime minister over the past seven months. This is a humanitarian issue, not a political issues.”

She added people from all over the UK had turned up for the protest and they were “proud” and “amazed” by the support they have received.

Tensions have been in place between Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and leaders of Tigray since November.

A United Nations-backed study released on Thursday said 353,000 people in the region were living in “severe crisis”.

Chemical Weapons & Heavy Artillery Sent Into Tigray For ‘Final’ Offensive

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 13, 2021

💭 My Note, connecting the dots:

According to this new report, rightly described as “horrifying”, Ethiopian Airlines is transporting weapons to Tigray via its commercial flight. Using commercial flight to transport weapons is prohibited worldwide.

It is very curious; preparing for The #TigrayGenocide, evil Abiy Ahmed and his luciferian overlords brought Tigrayans to occupy key positions nationally and internationally:

👉 Mr Tewolde Gebre Mariam Tesfay, Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines

👉 His Holiness Abune Mathias, Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church

👉 Dr. Lia Tadesse Gebremedhin, Minister of Health of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia

👉 Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Director-General of the World Health Organization

💭 Ethiopia today officially launched a preventive oral cholera vaccination campaign targeting 2 million people aged 1 year and above in Tigray. Of course, other vaccination will follow. O Father, The Merciful Lord Egziabher Almighty, please protect Your people.

Now, back to the main story:

Three independent reports confirm that chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle. According to new information received tonight from a new source, 42 tons of chemical weapons have arrived on Mekelle through Djibouti.

Flyethiopian is transporting weapons to Tigray via its commercial flight.Using commercial flight to transport weapons is prohibited! Reports the weapons are chemical’s that are prohibited to use internationally

Three independent reports confirm that chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle. According to new information received tonight from a new source, 42 tons of chemical weapons have arrived on Mekelle through Djibouti.

The chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle from Addis Abeba on flight ET3160 ETAUQ on June 5, B789 departing from Addis Abeba at 08:22. The plane is reported to have delivered a phosphorus chemical. The carrying capacity of the plane is 51 tons.

Situation Report published in SR 163 that: “40 tons of Phosphorus chemicals have arrived in Mekelle Airport on 06 June 2021 based on internal sources. This appears part of the preparation for what is called the “final” war.” It is reported that drones may be used to deploy the chemical weapons.

Also, heavy artillery has arrived in Djibouti with Ethiopia as the destination. The artillery and chemical weapons would have been possibly purchased in Russia, Ukraine, and China.

It is reported that many airplanes are circling tonight over the city of Mekelle.

Sources in Tigray report that over 130 military vehicles passed through the town of Wuqro in the direction of Adigrat, to prepare for the next offensive. Rumors say that this ‘last’ offensive will be “very heavy”. This was reported on 12 June 2021.

Assena TV reported that ENDF moved heavy artillery from various directions into Tigray on Friday 11 June 2021 for the ‘final’ offensive. More than 271 buses full of Fano Amhara forces and ENDF entered to Shire and Axum via Endabaguna.

Assena TV further reported that 180 military vehicles of ENDF moved to Mekelle from around Tembien and went to the direction of Wukro. 14 of them were carrying heavy artillery.

The 180 vehicles went towards Maymekden and Wukro direction to deceive the public and later returned to Mekelle via Qwha. Another ENDF force moved from Hawzen to Mekelle and in replacement other ENDF forces were sent to Hawzen.

Another ENDF force has entered Tigray with 18 orals/vehicles and now they are in Agula camp after traveling from Negelle Borona zone of the Oromia region.

የሮማው ጳጳስ ከእኛዎቹ በልጠው ለትግራይ ጸሎት ያደርሳሉ | “ረሃብን መታገስ የለብንም!”

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 13, 2021

💭 የቫቲካን መልዕክት፦

የሁሉንም ህሊና የሚፈታተን አደጋ፤ በትግራይ ያለው የረሃብ ደወል። ፍራንችስኮስ ከአንጀሉስ በኋላ ባደረጉት ሰላምታ በጭፍጨፋው ለተጎዱት የኢትዮጵያ አካባቢዎች ለሚኖሩ ሕዝቦች “ሰላም ለኪ” አቅርበዋል። “ረሃብን መታገስ የለብንም” ብለዋል

Una tragedia che interpella la coscienza di tutti: l’allarme alimentare nel Tigray. Nel saluto post Angelus, Francesco recita un’Ave Maria per la popolazione della regione dell’Etiopia colpita da violenze. L’appello a non tollerare che si muoia di fame.

👉 እንግዲህ ይህ ከG7 ጉባኤ ጋር በተናበበ መልክ የቀረበ መልዕክት መሆኑ ነው። ግን ይሁን እስኪ!

ብጹእ ወቅዱስ አቡነ ማትያስ ምነው ጠፉ?

ከዚህ በፊት ኤርትራ ውስጥ ያሉት የካቶሊክ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ካርዲናሎች ኤርትራውያን ከትግራይ ተሰርቀው ወደ ኤርትራ የሚገቡትን ቁሳቁሶች እንዳይገዙ ት ዕዛዝ በማስተላለፍ ከትግራይ ሕዝብ ጋር እንደሚሰለፉ ገልጠው ነበር፤ ያውም በኢሳያስ አፈቆርኪ ግዛት። የኛዎቹስ ሰባት ወራት እንደ ሞእተ ሰው “ጭጭ” ብለዋል።

የአገር ውስጥ ሜዲያዎች ለሆዳቸው ያደሩ ፈሪ ጥንቸሎች ስለሆኑ ይህን ማድረግ እንደማይፈልጉና እንደማይችሉ ግልጽ ነው፤ ግን የውጭ ሜዲያዎች ለምንድን ነው አቡነ ማትያስን ለቃለ መጠይቅ የማይጋብዟቸው? የትግራይ ጉዳይ እኮ አንዴ ብቻ ተነግሮበት በዝምታ የሚታለፍና ቸል የሚባልበት ጉዳይ አይደለም። የቤተ ክህነት ግድየለሽነትና ከግራኝ ጋር ተደማሪነት፣ የኢትዮጵያ ዘ-ስጋ ብሔሮች ዝምታና ከግራኝ ጋር ተደማሪነት፣ የሜዲያዎች ሽርሙጥና እና ከግራኝ ጋር ተደማሪነት ናቸው ጭፍጨፋው፣ አስገድዶ መድፈሩ፣ ረሃቡና ስደቱ እንዲቀጥል እርዳታ እያደረጉለት ያሉት። እኔ ሁሉንም መጠራጠር ጀምሬአለሁ/ ግዴታየም ነው፤ ከእግዚአብሔር አምላኬ እና ቅዱሳኑ በቀር ከላይ እስከ ታች ማንንም አላምንም! ሁሉም ተናብበው የእግዚአብሔርን ልጆች ለማጥፋት በጋራ እየሠሩ ነው። የትም ዓለም እኮ ታይቶ የማይታወቅ ክስተት ነው ዓለም እየተገነዘበው ያለው። ብጹእነታቸው ከሳምንታት በፊት ከዘመድኩን በቀለ ጋር በስልክ እንዲነጋገሩ በመገደዳቸው/በመደረጋቸው በጣም ነበር ያዘንኩት!

Global Leaders to The Evil PM of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed: Stop The Atrocities in Tigray

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 12, 2021

ኢትዮጵያውያን እና ክርስቲያኖች ነን!” ከሚሉት ግብዝ ወገኖች ይልቅ የዓለም አቀፉ ማሕበረሰብ በሺህ እጥፍ በትግራይ እየተሠራ ባለው በዓለም ተወዳዳሪ የሌለው ግፍ ተጨንቋል፤ የትግራይ ኢትዮጵያውያን ዕጣ ፈንታ አሳስቦታል። ምንም ወንጀል የሌለበት ንጹሕ ሕዝብ እግዚአብሔር በሰጠችው ትንሽ ግዛት በሰላም፣ በክብር እና ታማኝነት እንዳይኖር ከሌሎች አካባቢ ተሰባስበው በመምጣትና የኢትዮጵያ ታሪካዊ ጠላቶች የሆኑትን አረቦችን እና ሶማሌዎችን ጋብዞ በመጥራት ሕፃናትን፣ ወጣቶችን፣ ሴቶችን፣ አረጋውያንን፣ ካህናትንና ቀሳውስትን በመጨፍጨፍ የዘር ማጥፋት ዘመቻቸውን ለመቀጠል መወሰናቸው ዓለም፤ “ምን ዓይነት አውሬዎች ናቸው” ለማለት ሳይቀር ተገድደዋል። በሌላ በኩል ግን፤ የተቀረው “ኢትዮጵያ! ኢትዮጵያ!” የሚለው ኦሮሞ፣ አማራ፣ ጉራጌ፣ ወላይታ፣ ሲዳማ፣ አፋር፣ ሶማሊ፣ ጋሞ፣ ጋምቤላ ወዘተ እንዲሁም ሜዲያዎቹና ተቋማቱ ሁሉ ግን የዜግነትና የሰብዓዊነት ግዴታቸውን እንኳን ለመወጣት አሻፈረን ብለው ቆሻሻ የዲያብሎስ ጭፍራ የሆነውን ግራኝን ለመምረጥ ሽርጉድ በማለት ላይ ይገኛሉ፤ በፍጻሜ ዘመን ምንም ነገር እንዳልተከሰተ ለሁሉም ነገር ጆሮ ዳባ ልበስ ሆኖ በቀን አራቴ እየተመገቡ ጭፈራ፣ ዳንኪራ ጩኸት ብቻ! አይ ፌደራሊዝም! አይ የብሔር ብሔረሰቦች እኩልነት! በዚህ ዘመን የብሔር-ብሔረሰቦችን ጨካኝነትና አርመኔነት ነው እየታዘብን ያለነው። እንግዲህ ከኢትዮጵያ መጠረግ የሚኖርበት አሳፋሪና ቅሌታም ትውልድ ቢኖር ይህ ትውልድ ነው! ልቡ የጨለመበት ከንቱ ትውልድ፤ እግዚአብሔር ይይለት፤ ደግሞ ፍርዱን በቅርቡ ያገኛታል!

Seven highly respected leaders in conflict resolution have issued a call for Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed to take immediate action to bring a halt to the atrocities being committed in the Tigray region of his nation. The letter urges the Prime Minister to implement seven steps to resolve the crisis.

It was authored by José Ramos-Horta, former President of Timor-Leste and 1996 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and five other international diplomats and peace builders, “colleagues and friends the Prime Minister knows well,” including former President of Finland Tarja Halonen, former UN and Arab League Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, Emeritus Bishop of Oslo and former Vice Chair of the Nobel Committee Dr. Gunnar Stalsett, former President of Slovenia and former UN Assistant Secretary General and President of the World Leadership Alliance Danilo Turk, and former UN Under Secretary General and Special Envoy for the Prevention of Genocide Adama Dieng.

The letter notes that “grave human rights violations and abuses are being committed against civilian Tigrayans, including extrajudicial killings, sexual violence, looting and destruction of property, mass executions, arbitrary arrests, rape, forced displacement of populations, hate speech and stigmatization including ethnic profiling. These attacks have caused tens of thousands of Tigrayan children and adults to flee their homes and to seek refuge in Sudan under extremely deplorable conditions.”

“As a result of this conflict, according to the United Nations, approximately 4.5 million of a population of 6 million people are in immediate need of humanitarian assistance,” it says. “Between two and 2.5 million people in the region will experience severe food insecurity through September. News outlets from around the globe are also increasingly writing of horrifying stories of rape, torture, and mass arrests.”

It recalls Abiy’s own words, from his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech two years ago, “there are those, ‘who have never seen war, but glorify and romanticize it. They have not seen the fear. They have not seen the fatigue. They have not seen the destruction or heartbreak, nor have they felt the mournful emptiness of war after the carnage.”

Specifically, the leaders urge Prime Minister Ahmed to:

1. Act now and swiftly to save his country and end the suffering of Ethiopians afflicted by war in Tigray.

2. Invite independent and credible investigations, in full cooperation with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, into human rights abuses and violations of international human rights law and humanitarian law by all actors in Tigray. We encourage the Prime Minister to ensure that other human rights organizations are provided access in order to independently investigate reports of human rights abuses and violations in Tigray.

3. Consider establishing a hybrid court empowered with jurisdiction to hold accountable Eritrean perpetrators of war crimes.

4. Fully cooperate with regional organizations and the international community to facilitate all-inclusive dialogue, reconciliation and healing, involving all political and civil society actors in Tigray with the goal of charting a consensual way forward for the region’s future governance.

5. Lead calls for a cessation of hostilities by all parties involved and encourage other parties to commit to ending the fighting immediately. Press for the immediate and verifiable withdrawal of Eritrean and Amhara regional forces from the Tigray Region.

6. Facilitate the work of international humanitarian staff including by issuing long-duration visas, expediting the process for the importation and use of satellite communication technology by humanitarian organizations, and instructing your military and allied forces to establish a civil-military coordination cell to facilitate the work of humanitarian organizations on the ground.

7. Issue orders to protect all civilians in Tigray and throughout Ethiopia regardless of their ethnicity, including refugees and internally displaced persons, and particularly women in the light of widespread reports of sexual and gender-based violence.”

“It is clear that like all wars, the political dispute that led to the Tigray crisis cannot be resolved through military means alone,” it states. “The suffering inflicted on the people in the region has already been too great. For the good of Ethiopia, and the good of the region and the world, we ask the Prime Minister to work toward a political solution as soon as possible. It is only through dialogue and negotiation that lasting peace can be established, and the healing for so many can begin.”

There has been no response to date from Prime Minister Abiy.

G7 Leaders Can’t Ignore Ethiopia’s Looming Famine

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 11, 2021

UN Says 350,000 People in Tigray Starving, Millions More at Risk

G7 leaders meeting this week should galvanize an immediate global response to the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Ethiopia’s Tigray region.

Yesterday, the United Nations and other aid agencies warned that some 350,000 people are already experiencing famine-like conditions in Tigray. Millions of others there are at risk of famine too, unless assistance is promptly provided. The UN children’s agency, UNICEF, says that some 33,000 severely malnourished children “are at high risk of death.”

That the Ethiopian government disputes these findings only underscores the urgency of international involvement. G7 leaders should demand from Ethiopia and its allies the resumption of basic services, unimpeded aid delivery and access, and make clear that any official who blocks assistance faces immediate sanctions.

The millions facing famine in Tigray cannot be explained away as a by-product of the seven-month armed conflict. Human Rights Watch research shows that warring parties have directly contributed to this man-made disaster. Government restrictions on aid access to the region and to basic services in the early months of the fighting pushed many people over the edge. Ethiopian, Eritrean and Amhara forces have also looted property, burned crops, and attacked factories, hospitals, and other infrastructure key to people’s survival.

While humanitarian access in some areas has reportedly improved, warring parties are still denying aid workers’ movement, intimidating and attacking them, and confiscating supplies. Mark Lowcock, the UN under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, said that in May alone, Ethiopian, Eritrean, and Amhara forces were responsible for 130 out of 131 access violations.

Attacks on civilians, including large-scale massacres and executions of men and boys, arbitrary detentions, and numerous horrific acts of sexual violence against women and girls, are also impeding people’s ability to reach help.

Tigray has been here before. Human Rights Watch documented that Ethiopia’s military dictatorship under the Derg in the mid-1980s, plunged millions in Tigray and other areas into famine by destroying crops, bombing marketplaces, restricting movement, and deliberately targeting food distribution efforts.

While different eras and realities, the parallels in the warring parties’ tactics are chilling.

Iconic images of starving people from a BBC report during the 1984 famine justifiably sparked international outcry. They also became an image Ethiopia has long tried to escape. This time around, the alarm bells have been ringing for months. It’s an enduring shame that the African Union has largely remained silent, and Russian and Chinese objections mean the UN Security Council has been unable to hold a single public meeting on the crisis. G7 leaders should act now.
