አልጀሪያ በብዙ ሺዎች የሚቆጠሩ አፍሪቃውያንን ያለ ምግብና ውኃ ሳሃራ በረሃ ላይ ጣለቻቸው

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 17, 2018

እስከ 13ሺህ ይጠጋሉ፤ ከጊኒ፣ ናይጄሪያ፣ ማሊ፣ ኒጀር እና ካሜሩን ወደ አልጀሪያ የገቡ፤ አብዛኞቹም ሙስሊሞች ናቸው።

ላለፉት ጥቂት ዓመታት ከ 30ሺህ እስከ 3ሚሊየን የሚሆኑ ጥቁር አፍሪቃውያንን የበረሃ አሸዋ በልቷቸው ሕይወታቸው አልፋለች።

ያለ ምግብ ውኃ ምድረ በዳ ላይ ተጣሉ፤ እንደምን ተጣሉ? ልበል፤ እንስሳ እንኳን እንዲ አይጣልም፤ አዎ! እንደ ቆሻሻ ተጣሉ፤ 99% የሚሆኑት ሙስሊም ወገኖቻቸው ናቸው። ይህን የአረብ ሙስሊም አልጀሪያን ጭካኔ የተሞላበት ተግባር አውሮፓውያን ሙሉ በሙሉ ደግፈውታል፤ አንድም የሚያዝን ነዋሪ ድርጊቱን ሲያወግዝ አልሰማሁም፣ አላነበብኩም። እንዲያውም አልጀሪያ ለዚህ እርምጃ መሸለም አለባት ይላሉ፤ እነዚህ “ጥቁር አውሬዎች” አውሮፓ እንዳይገቡ ይፈልጋሉና። አሁን ተረዳን ለምን አንጌል “ኤሊዛቤል” ሜርከል ተጣድፋ በሚሊየን የሚቆጠሩትን በጥባጭ አረቦችንና አፍጋኖችን ወደ አውሮፕ እንዲጎርፉ ያደረገችው? አዎ! የአፍሪቃ ተራ ሲደርስ አሁን ጀልባው ሞልቷል!

African Migrants Report Torture, Slavery In Algeria | አፍሪቃውያን ስደተኞች ከሊቢያ በይበልጥ የከፋ የባርነት ስቃይ በ አልጀሪያ ይደርስባቸዋል

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 1, 2018

ይህ ትናንትና የወጣ አዲስ ሪፖርት ነው። እንጊድህ አረብ ሙስሊሞች ለ 1400 ዓመታት ያህል እያካሄዱት ያሉት ሥራ ይህን ይመስላል። አንድ ጥቁር አፍሪቃዊ ይህን እያየ እንዴት እስላም ሊሆን ይችላል? እንዴት? እንዴት? እንዴት?

አፍሪቃውያኑ በእንደዚህ ዓይነት አስከፊ ሁኔታ ላይ በሰሜን አፍሪቃ መገኘታቸው አውሮፓውያኑን ያረካቸዋል። ይህ መዋጥ ያለብን ሃቅ ነው። ለዚህም ምክኒያቶች አሉት፦

በአንድ በኩል አፍሪቃውያን ወደ አውሮፓ እንዳይጎርፉ ይህን ድርጊት እንደማስፈራሪያ ሲጠቀሙበት፣ በሌላ በኩል ደግሞ፡ “ከእኛ አውሮፓውያን በይበልጥ የከፉት አረብ ሙስሊሞቹ ናቸው፡ ተመልከቱ!”፡ በሚል ርካሽ የፍልስፍና ጨዋታ እራሳቸውን “ጻድቅ” ለማድረግ ስለሚሹ ነው።

ሮማውያኑ “ካቶሊኮች” ከሺህ ዓመታት በፊት ክርስቲያን የነበረችውን ሰሜን አፍሪቃን ለአረብ ሙስሊሞች መተዋቸው አፍሪቃውያኑ ወደ አውሮፓ በቀላሉ እንዳይሻገሩ ይከላከሉላቸው ዘንድ ግንብ መሥራታቸው ነበር። ምስራቅ ሮም ወይም ኦርቶዶክስ ክርስቲያን የነበረችውንም ኮኒስታንትኖፕልን ለቱርክ ያስረከቡት እነዚሁ ሮማውያን “ካቶሊኮች” ናቸው። ኤርትራም እንደዚሁ። እናስታውሳለን፡ በባደሜ ጦርነት ወቅት

አስታራቂ” መስለው በአልጀርስ ለስብሰባ ሲጋብዙን?! „አቤት ቅሌት! አቤት ኅፍረት“ ያልኩበት የማይረሳ ጉዳይ ነበር።

ሰሜን አፍሪቃ ሰብዓዊ የሆነው የክርስትና ማሕበረሰብ አሁን ቢኖራት ኖሮ ግማሽ የሆነው አውሮፓዊ፡ አፍሪቃዊ ዝርያ በኖረው ነበር፤ ስለዚህ አረብ ሙስሊሞቹ ለአውሮፓ ጠንካራ የዋስትና ግንቦች ናቸው። ይህን ክስተት አሁን በግልሽ የምናየው ነው።


African Migrants Report Torture, Slavery In Algeria


Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algerian authorities could not be reached for comment and several experts cast doubt on claims that such abuses are widespread in the north African country.

The tightly governed state has become a popular gateway to the Mediterranean since it became tougher to pass through Libya, where slavery, rape and torture are rife.

Amid a surge in anti-migrant sentiment, Algeria since late last year has sent thousands of migrants back over its southern border into Niger, according to the United Nations Migration Agency (IOM), where many tell stories of exploitation.

The scale of abuse is not known, but an IOM survey of thousands of migrants suggested it could rival Libya.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation heard detailed accounts of forced labour and slavery from an international charity and a local association in Agadez, Niger’s main migrant transit hub, and interviewed two of the victims by telephone.

The first time they sold me for 100,000 CFA francs ($170),” said Ousmane Bah, a 21-year-old from Guinea who said he was sold twice in Algeria by unknown captors and worked in construction.

They took our passports. They hit us. We didn’t eat. We didn’t drink,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “I was a slave for six months.”

Accounts of abuse are similar, said Abdoulaye Maizoumbou, a project coordinator for global charity Catholic Relief Services. Of about 30 migrants he met who were deported from Algeria, about 20 said they had been enslaved, he said.

In most cases, migrants said they were sold in and around the southern city of Tamanrasset shortly after entering the country, often by smugglers of their own nationality, he said.

Some said they were tortured in order to blackmail their parents into paying the captors, but even when the money arrived they were forced to work for no pay, or sold, said Maizoumbou.

One man told the Thomson Reuters Foundation he slept in a sheep pen and suffered beatings if an animal got sick or dirty.

They would bring out machetes and I would get on my knees and apologise and they would let it go,” said Ogounidje Tange Mazu, from Togo.

The IOM in Algeria has received three reports this year from friends and relatives of African migrants held hostage and forced to work in the country. “It’s probably just an indication that it is happening. How big it is we don’t know,” said its chief of mission Pascal Reyntjens.

What happens in Algeria surpasses what happens in Libya,” said Bachir Amma, a Nigerien ex-smuggler who runs a football club and a local association to inform migrants of the risks.

Migrants in Libya are often starved and beaten by armed groups, and there have been reports of “open slave markets” where migrants are put on sale, according to the U.N. human rights office.

Amma said he had spoken with more than 75 migrants back from Algeria, the majority of whom described slave-like conditions.

NGOs don’t know about this because they’re too interested in Libya,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

In 2016, the IOM surveyed about 6,300 migrants in Niger, most of whom had returned from Algeria and Libya. Sixty-five percent of those who had lived in Algeria said they had experienced violence and abuse, compared to 61 percent in Libya. An estimated 75,000 migrants live in Algeria, the IOM said.

Hundreds of Secret Algerian Converts Requesting Bibles Each Month

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 9, 2015

christian-north-africaThousands of Muslims in Algeria are requesting Bibles and becoming Christians, disillusioned with the so-called Arab Spring and the rise of violent Islam, the country’s sole Bible distributor said.

Ali Khidri, Executive Secretary for the Bible Society in Algeria, told The Tablet that “hundreds” of people every month were turning up at his office in Algiers requesting a Bible, and that “thousands” were going to churches to enquire about the Christian faith.

Mr Khidri said Muslims were questioning their faith because they were disillusioned by acts being carried out in the name of Islam. “They are more and more come to feel that this is the true face of Islam,” he said.

He added that some Christian converts were making television programmes to engage Algerians with the Bible, using their knowledge of the Qu’ran.

He added that some Christian converts were making television programmes to engage Algerians with the Bible, using their knowledge of the Qu’ran.

According to the Bible Society there are between 100,000 and 200,000 Christians in Algeria – a huge increase from 2,000 30 years ago. Exact figures are impossible to establish because Christians cannot practise their faith openly. Mr Khidri said that government claims there are 600,000 Christians was an attempt to scaremonger.

More than 2,000 baptisms took place in 2013, the Bible Society says; there are 48 registered Protestant congregations, about 200 “underground” congregations that meet in people’s homes, and a few dozen Catholic ones, though these are mainly attended by expatriates. Catholic clergy generally send inquirers to Evangelical churches to avoid the risk of priests being deported, he said.

Mr Khidri has previously said that Algiers tolerates conversions are among the Berber people, which account for many of them, because they were Christian before the arrival of Islam, and that Muslim women are drawn to Christianity because of Jesus’ respectful treatment of women.

Since a presidential decree was passed in 2006, evangelisation has been criminalised, non-Muslim worship is restricted to approved premises, and handing out a Bible can lead to a five-year jail sentence or deportation for foreign priests.

Tuaregs: From Hear To Timbuktu?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 1, 2012

Are the rebels in Northern Mali “TUAREG” fighters? Are they fighting alone?

Who are Tuarges, anyway?

Tuaregs are probably distant relatives of Ethiopians, Egyptians and Moroccans. Maybe Christianity had a certain influence on them: Tuareg blacksmiths sculpt beautiful Crossess like the one on the image. The crosses, worn as pendants were originally worn by men and passed from father to son. Most of the cross designs are named after oasis towns. The Ethiopian influence in them is obvious.

The Tuareg belong to the large Berber community, which stretches from the Canary Islands to Egypt and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Niger River. They are the only Berber speaking community to have preserved and used the Tifinagh writing. Nomads of vast arid lands, the common denominator of the dispersed Tuareg is the language, Tamasheq. Consequently, they identify themselves as Kel Tamasheq (people of Tamasheq). The Tuareg who had originally lived in the northern tier of Africa but were later chased southwards by successive Arab invasions.

At the independence of African States the Tuareg found themselves scattered among various states (Mali, Niger, Algeria, Libya, Burkina Faso, etc.). Now they are threatened in their survival even for reasons of the establishment of borders, which had been unknown before, and also because of the economic evolution and climatic conditions. They find themselves dominated, humiliated and, for some, reduced to the state of refugees. Because of administrative constraints and their political marginalisation, added to their geographical isolation, it seems an uphill task to establish a true figure of the Tuareg and their distribution.

The Tuareg themselves claim to be more than three million. Yet their number has variously been estimated at some 1.5 to 2 million, with the majority of some 750,000 living in Niger, and 550,000 in Mali. In Algeria they are estimated at 40,000, excluding some 100,000 refugees from Mali and Niger, and the same number is officially admitted to live in Burkina Faso. Proper figures are not established in Libya and other West African francophone countries.

In the Sahel countries of Mali and Niger, genocide has for years been perpetrated by the regimes of the two countries against the Tuareg people, and to which the entire world seems to turn a blind eye. The Tuareg tragedy has not been a priority of world opinion simply because it is a slow burning conflict.

Mali’s Tuareg Rebellion
