Pro-Abortion Activists Take Bible And Play Soccer With It. They Then Put The Bible in a Toilet

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 1, 2022

👉 ገብርኤል 👉 ማርያም 👉 ኡራኤል 👉 ጊዮርጊስ 😇 ተክለ ሐይማኖት 👉 ዮሴፍ 👉 መድኃኔ ዓለም

💭 በአሜሪካዋ ሲያትል ከተማ ያሉ የፅንስ ማስወረድ አራማጆች ጸያፍ ድርጊቶችን ፈጸሙ፤ መጽሐፍ ቅዱስን ነጥቀው በሱ ኳስ ተጫወቱበ። ከዚያም መጽሐፍ ቅዱስን በተንቀሳቃሽ መጸዳጃ ቤት ውስጥ ጣሉት። የሚገርም ነው! 😛 ይህ “የመጸዳጃ ቤት” ምስል ልክ የመካን ጥቁር ድንጋይ / ካባን + zየሂንዱዎችን ሺቫቤተ መቅደስ ይመስላል። እርኩሱን ቁርአንን የማይደፍሩት ለዚህ ሳይሆን አይቀርም! ባቢሎን አሜሪካም አበቅቶላታል!

😛 Amazing! This „Toilette„ image looks exactly like the Islamic Black Stone of Mecca (The Kaaba) + The Hindu ‘Shiva’ temple.

💭 Pro-abortion activists play soccer with a Bible, commit acts of desecration. The activists threw the Seattle preacher’s Bible into a portable toilet outside.

Disturbing footage from Seattle shows pro-abortion activists playing soccer with a Bible before proceeding to completely desecrate and destroy the sacred book.

In the highly offensive footage posted to social media on Sunday, a group of pro-abortion activists can be seen kicking a Bible back and forth to each other as if it were a soccer ball.

Desecration of another persons Religious material is a HATE CRIME.
If this was a Quran people would be outraged. People must really hate the WORD of GOD right now.

When the man recording the footage – who goes by “The Seattle Preacher” on social media — explains to the anti-Christian protesters that it is a “hate crime” to destroy someone else’s religious texts, a voice in the background can be heard cackling with laughter.

The video proceeds to cut to the Seattle Preacher holding the now-damaged Bible, telling the protesters that they would not have treated the book with such disrespect if it were the Quran.

Immediately, one of the protesters snatches the Bible back from the man, and the next piece of footage shows the Bible sitting in human waste in the bottom of a portable toilet.

“That right there is a hate crime … That is ungodly and it is wrong,” the Seattle Preacher lamented, with his voice breaking.

The blasphemous footage sparked a large reaction on social media, with pro-lifers and Christians expressing their disgust with the anti-Christian actions of the pro-abortion activists.

“These people are truly the cancer of Earth. Everything they pretend to be against is *exactly* who they are,” reacted prominent songwriter “Five Times August.”

“One day, their souls will understand how foolish and blind they truly are,” added professional poker player turned Christian evangelist Anna Khait.

This display of sacrilege is only one incident of many similar events that have occurred in the United States since the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court last Friday.

As reported by LifeSiteNews, two Christian pregnancy centers were the target of vandalism over the weekend, with one of the centers being set ablaze after being spray-painted with pro-abortion messages and threats.

In addition to the pregnancy centers, a historic Catholic church in West Virginia was burned to the ground last weekend in what authorities are describing as a “suspicious” fire.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Suggests That Gay Marriage Could Also Be Overturned

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 26, 2022

💭 የጠቅላይ ፍርድ ቤት ዳኛ ክላረንስ ቶማስ የግብረ ሰዶማውያን ጋብቻም ሊገለበጥ እንደሚችል ጠቁመዋል

❖❖❖[ወደ ኤፌሶን ሰዎች ምዕራፍ ፭፴፩]❖❖❖

ስለዚህ ሰው አባቱንና እናቱን ይተዋል ከሚስቱም ጋር ይተባበራል ሁለቱም አንድ ሥጋ ይሆናሉ።”

❖❖❖ [Ephesians 5:31]❖❖❖

Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”

💭 Justice Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court’s longest standing justice, has suggested that the case that constitutionalized gay marriage (Obergefell v. Hodges) could be overturned in the future, as we read in Politico:

Justice Clarence Thomas argued in a concurring opinion released on Friday that the Supreme Court “should reconsider” its past rulings codifying rights to contraception access, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage.

The sweeping suggestion from the current court’s longest-serving justice came in a concurring opinion he authored in response to the court’s ruling revoking the constitutional right to abortion, also released on Friday.

In his concurring opinion, Thomas, an appointee of President George H.W. Bush, wrote that the justices “should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell” — referring to three cases having to do with Americans’ fundamental privacy, due process and equal protection rights.

Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, the next step would be to overturn the law of Sodom.

💭 Pro-Abortion Propaganda Aimed at Destroying Ethiopian Culture

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 20, 2012

Ethiopian Medical Journal recently published a shocking analysis from Dr. Calum Miller pointing out that the legalizing of abortion in Ethiopia in 2005 did not result in a decrease, but rather an increase of maternal morbidity and mortality

Miller conducts extensive research in three African nations, with Ethiopia selected as a case study.

In a letter to the Ethiopian medical journal, Miller wrote, “Rather than being a silver bullet to reduce deaths from abortion, abortion legalization has resulted in a vast increase in the number of abortions, without any appreciable decrease in abortion mortality or maternal mortality. There is some evidence mortality, and certainly, morbidity, have even increased since legalization.

“Ethiopia’s progress in reducing maternal deaths has been considerably less than expected, especially with respect to abortion,” Miller continued.

“It is possible that, as in other countries, a disproportionate focus on family planning based on inflated claims of abortion mortality has diverted resources from emergency obstetric care and thereby failed to reduce maternal mortality more significantly.”

The Ethiopian Penal Law on Abortion, Art. 528, Section II, stipulates punishment for those who endanger the life of the unborn. However, revisions were undertaken in 20005 by the Ethiopian Ministry of Health to conform Ethiopia’s abortion legislation to the fifth Millennium Development Goals (MDG 5) of the World Health Organisation (WHO). This was out of step with dominant conservative public sentiment as well as the explicit anti-abortion position of the highly influential Orthodox Church in Ethiopia.

Cited in an essay published by St. Paul Hospital Millennium College in Addis Ababa, posted on 17 Jan 2022, a group of 12 leading Orthodox Christian and Muslims stated their support for the defense of the right to life. The Christians declared:

Man (person) is created in the image and likeness of God. Human life begins from conception biologically and spiritually. No one has the authority to take the life of an innocent (God’s creature). Killing God`s gift that is innocent is morally unacceptable. Therefore, abortion is wrong and condemned because it is a grave sin.

“The Orthodox Christian faith leaders follow a closed door policy on the matter of induced abortion,” wrote the essay’s author, Demelash Bezabih Ewnetu.

💭 Saudi Arabia Should Stop Deporting Tigrayan Migrants to Ethiopia

Thousands of ethnic Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia have been detained, abused or forcibly disappeared after arriving back home in Ethiopia, Human Rights Watch said in a new report Wednesday.

The ethnic profiling and mistreatment of returnees detailed by HRW took place as the federal government fought Tigrayan rebels in a grinding year-long war that has cost thousands of lives and pushed many more people into famine.

Tigrayans repatriated from Saudi Arabia, where hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians have migrated to seek work over the years, were singled out and held in Addis Ababa and elsewhere against their will upon returning, HRW said.

Others were prevented from returning to Tigray, the northernmost region of Ethiopia, after being identified at roadside checkpoints or airports and transferred to detention facilities, the report said.

“Ethiopian authorities are persecuting Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia by wrongfully detaining and forcibly disappearing them,” said Nadia Hardman, refugee and migrants rights researcher at HRW.

The rights watchdog interviewed Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia between December 2020 and September 2021, during which tens of thousands were repatriated under an agreement between the two countries.

Some of the Tigrayan deportees detained after arriving in Ethiopia reported suffering physical abuse, including beatings with rubber or wooden rods.

Others were accused of colluding with the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which ran Tigray before the start of the war, and is now considered a terrorist group by Addis Ababa.

Two deportees told HRW they were taken with other men from migrants centres by police and bused to coffee farms, where they were put to work in terrible conditions for no pay and little food.

Many were denied contact with family, and feared their relatives thought they were still in Saudi Arabia.

“The Ethiopian authorities’ detention of thousands of Tigrayan deportees from Saudi Arabia without informing their families of their arrest or whereabouts amounts to enforced disappearance, which also violates international law,” the report said.

In late 2021 the United States and its allies called on Ethiopia to stop unlawfully detaining its citizens on ethnic grounds under a wartime state of emergency declared in November.

Ethiopia’s own state-affiliated rights watchdog estimated that thousands had been caught up in sweeps that appears to target Tigrayans on their ethnicity alone.

New Wave of Abuses in Ethiopia’s Western Tigray | በምዕራባዊ ትግራይ አዲስ የግፍ ማዕበል ተፈጠረ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 16, 2021

‘I cannot escape’ /’ማምለጥ አልችልም’

አይ ኦሮሞ! አይ አማራ! ለ፩ ዓመት ያህል ይህ ሁሉ ግፍ! ሥላሴ ይፍረድባችሁ! 😠😠😠 😢😢😢

“The global paralysis on Ethiopia’s armed conflict has emboldened human rights abusers to act with impunity,” Human Rights Watch’s Laetitia Bader said.

By The Associated Press

New witness accounts allege that thousands of ethnic Tigrayans have been forcibly expelled, detained or killed in one of the most inaccessible areas of Ethiopia’s yearlong war in the latest wave of abuses carried out with machetes, guns and knives.

Thursday’s joint statement by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International is based on interviews with more than 30 witnesses and relatives.

It comes ahead of a U.N. Human Rights Council session Friday on Ethiopia, whose government objects to what it considers meddling by the West over the war that has killed tens of thousands of people.

Ethnic Tigrayans have been targeted throughout the conflict as Ethiopian and allied forces battle the Tigray fighters who long dominated the national government before Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed took office three years ago. Some of the worst abuses have been reported in the western Tigray region, which has been occupied by authorities and fighters from the neighboring Amhara region and soldiers from neighboring Eritrea.

The latest alleged abuses appear to be linked to the Tigray forces’ recent momentum, which Ethiopia’s government asserts has been blunted after the prime minister, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and former soldier, went to the battlefront himself. Witnesses told the AP that authorities in western Tigray warned in public meetings against supporting the Tigray fighters, who themselves have been accused of a growing number of abuses in the war.

The new joint statement by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International says Amhara security forces are responsible for the latest wave of expulsions, detentions and killings, and it warns that Tigrayans in detention are “at grave risk.” It says security forces systematically rounded up Tigrayans in the communities of Humera, Adebay and Rawyan, separating families and expelling women and children.

“They separated the old from the young, took their money and other possessions. … Older people, parents were loaded on big trucks (going) east. They let them go with nothing, while the young remained behind,” one witness in Rawyan told the human rights groups. In Humera, witnesses described seeing as many as 20 trucks carrying people away. It’s not often clear where they are taken.

A spokesman for the Amhara region, Gizachew Mulluneh, and Abiy spokeswoman Bellene Seyoum did not immediately comment.

The United Nations has estimated that 20,000 people were recently evicted from western Tigray, most of them women, children and the elderly. The U.N. has said more than 1 million have been displaced from there since the war began in November 2020.

But not all can leave. Witnesses have alleged that hundreds, if not thousands, of Tigrayans are held in makeshift, overcrowded detention centers in western Tigray, part of thousands being held elsewhere across Ethiopia amid suspicions fueled by hate speech by some senior government officials. The government has said it is targeting only the Tigray forces.

Witnesses told the AP, and the human rights groups, that some people trying to flee the roundups in Adebay were attacked and killed, with some Amhara fighters searching house-to-house with axes. “The whole town smelled” with dead bodies, one man said.

The human rights groups are calling on Ethiopian authorities to end the attacks on civilians and immediately grant access to western Tigray for aid groups. They also call on the U.N. Human Rights Council to establish an independent mechanism to investigate the war’s abuses, including by Tigray forces, and urge the U.N. Security Council to put Ethiopia on its formal agenda.

“The global paralysis on Ethiopia’s armed conflict has emboldened human rights abusers to act with impunity and left communities at risk of feeling abandoned,” Human Rights Watch’s Laetitia Bader said.


👉 „Failure on Ethiopia Sanctions ‘My Biggest Frustration’ This Year, Says EU’s Top Diplomat”

💭 My Note: In other words, Mr. Borrell is telling us: “As long as war criminals Abiy Ahmed Ali, Isaias Afewerki, the Oromo & Amhara special forces continue blocking Tigrayans (potential migrants to Europe heading for EU) from crossing the Ethio-Sudanese border in whatever possible form: By rounding them up, mutilating & dismembering — at the border within Africa – and throwing their dead bodies to the Tekeze river across the border, EU won’t issue sanctions against Abiy Ahmed, Isaias Afewerki and their partners in crime. The are doing a good job in preventing undesired ancient Christian Ethiopian migrants (We saw that when the UN The US and EU all blocked ancient Christians of Syria. Read this: No Christians Allowed: Muslim UN Officials Block Syrian Christian Refugees from Getting Help.

Mr. Borrell said it clearly, albeit concerning Belarus and Ukraine: “We cut the flowing of migrants to Europe…for me this is a source of satisfaction”

May be now The EU is giving money to the dictators of Ethiopia and Eritrea as a reward, instead of sanctioning them?!

After all, EU countries have awarded and honored to those evil monsters with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019, and just two months ago, one of the enablers of the #TigrayGenocide, Daniel Bekele with the German Africa Prize. Just unbelievably cruel – the world upside down, isn’t it?!

The Nobel Peace Prize That Paved the Way for War | NYTimes

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 15, 2021

This is the story behind how Ethiopia’s prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, won a Nobel Prize for making peace with his country’s longtime enemy — and then used the alliance to plan a war.

Secret meetings with a dictator. Clandestine troop movements. Months of quiet preparation for a war that was supposed to be swift and bloodless.

New evidence shows that Ethiopia’s prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, had been planning a military campaign in the northern Tigray region for months before war erupted one year ago, setting off a cascade of destruction and ethnic violence that has engulfed Ethiopia, Africa’s second most populous country.

Mr. Abiy, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate seen recently in fatigues commanding troops on the battlefront, insists that war was foisted upon him — that ethnic Tigrayan fighters fired the first shots in November 2020 when they attacked a federal military base in Tigray, slaughtering soldiers in their beds. That account has become an article of faith for Mr. Abiy and his supporters.

In fact, it was a war of choice for Mr. Abiy — one with wheels set in motion even before the Nobel Peace Prize win in 2019 that turned him, for a time, into a global icon of nonviolence.

The Nobel win stemmed largely from the unlikely peace deal Mr. Abiy struck with Isaias Afwerki, the authoritarian leader of Eritrea, within months of coming to power in 2018. That pact ended two decades of hostility and war between the neighboring rivals, and inspired lofty hopes for a transformed region.

Instead, the Nobel emboldened Mr. Abiy and Mr. Isaias to secretly plot a course for war against their mutual foes in Tigray, according to current and former Ethiopian officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid reprisals or protect family members inside Ethiopia.

In the months before fighting erupted in November 2020, Mr. Abiy moved troops toward Tigray and sent military cargo planes into Eritrea. Behind closed doors, his advisers and military generals debated the merits of a conflict. Those who disagreed were fired, interrogated at gunpoint or forced to leave.

Still dazzled by Mr. Abiy’s Nobel win, the West ignored those warning signs, the officials said. But ultimately it helped to pave the way to war. “From that day, Abiy felt he was one of the most influential personalities in the world,” Gebremeskel Kassa, a former senior Abiy administration official now in exile in Europe, said in an interview.

“He felt he had a lot of international support, and that if he went to war in Tigray, nothing would happen. And he was right,” he added.

Mr. Abiy’s spokeswoman, the information minister of Eritrea and the Norwegian Nobel Committee did not respond to questions for this article.

The quick and easy military victory that Mr. Abiy promised has not come to pass. The Tigrayans routed the Ethiopian troops and their Eritrean allies over the summer and last month came within 160 miles of the capital, Addis Ababa — prompting Mr. Abiy to declare a state of emergency.

Recently, the pendulum has swung back, with government forces retaking two strategic towns that had been captured by the Tigrayans — the latest twist in a conflict that has already cost tens of thousands of lives and pushed hundreds of thousands into famine-like conditions.

A Country at War With Itself

Here’s a look at why the war in Ethiopia started and how Tigray became a flash point.

Analysts say that Mr. Abiy’s journey from peacemaker to battlefield commander is a cautionary tale of how the West, desperate to find a new hero in Africa, got this leader spectacularly wrong.

“The West needs to make up for its mistakes in Ethiopia,” said Alex Rondos, formerly the European Union’s top diplomat in the Horn of Africa. “It misjudged Abiy. It empowered Isaias. Now the issue is whether a country of 110 million people can be prevented from unraveling.”

The Nobel Committee Takes a Chance

Accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in December 2019, Mr. Abiy, a former soldier, drew on his own experience to eloquently capture the horror of conflict.

“War is the epitome of hell,” he told a distinguished audience at Oslo City Hall. “I know because I have been there and back.”

To his foreign admirers, the soaring rhetoric was further proof of an exceptional leader. In his first months in power, Mr. Abiy, then 41, freed political prisoners, unshackled the press and promised free elections in Ethiopia. His peace deal with Eritrea, a pariah state, was a political moonshot for the strife-torn Horn of Africa region.

Even so, the five-member Norwegian Nobel Committee knew it was taking on a chance on Mr. Abiy, said Henrik Urdal of Peace Research Institute Oslo, which analyzes the committee’s decisions.

Mr. Abiy’s sweeping reforms were fragile and easily reversible, Mr. Urdal said, and the peace with Eritrea centered on his relationship with Mr. Isaias, a ruthless and battle-hardened autocrat.

“My partner and comrade-in-peace,” Mr. Abiy called him in Oslo.

Many Ethiopians also wanted to believe in Mr. Abiy’s promise. At a gala dinner for the new prime minister in Washington in July 2018, Dr. Kontie Moussa, an Ethiopian living in Sweden, announced to applause that he was nominating Mr. Abiy for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Back in Sweden, Dr. Kontie persuaded Anders Österberg, a parliamentarian from a low-income Stockholm district with a large immigrant population, to join his cause. Mr. Österberg traveled to Ethiopia, met with Mr. Abiy and was impressed.

He signed the Nobel papers — one of at least two nominations for Mr. Abiy that year.

In selecting Mr. Abiy, the Nobel Committee hoped to encourage him further down the path of democratic reforms, Mr. Urdal said.

Even then, though, there were signs that Mr. Abiy’s peace deal wasn’t all it seemed.

Its initial fruits, like daily commercial flights between the two countries and reopened borders, were rolled back or reversed in a matter of months. Promised trade pacts failed to materialize, and there was little concrete cooperation, the Ethiopian officials said.

Eritrea’s spies, however, gained an edge. Ethiopian intelligence detected an influx of Eritrean agents, some posing as refugees, who gathered information about Ethiopia’s military capabilities, a senior Ethiopian security official said.

The Eritreans were particularly interested in Tigray, he said.

Mr. Isaias had a long and bitter grudge against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, which dominated Ethiopia for nearly three decades until Mr. Abiy came to power in 2018. He blamed Tigrayan leaders for the fierce border war of 1998 to 2000 between Ethiopia and Eritrea, a former province of Ethiopia, in which as many as 100,000 people were killed. He also blamed them for Eritrea’s painful international isolation, including United Nations sanctions.

For Mr. Abiy, it was more complicated.

He served in the T.P.L.F.-dominated governing coalition for eight years and was made a minister in 2015. But as an ethnic Oromo, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, he never felt fully accepted by Tigrayans and suffered numerous humiliations, former officials and friends said.

Tigrayans fired Mr. Abiy from his leadership position at a powerful intelligence agency in 2010. In power, he came to see the Tigrayans, still smarting from their ouster, as the biggest threat to his burgeoning ambitions.

A Spy Chief Among the Singers and Dancers

Mr. Abiy and Mr. Isaias met at least 14 times from the time they signed the peace deal until war broke out, public records and news reports show.

Unusually, the meetings were mostly one-on-one, without aides or note-takers, two former Ethiopian officials said.

They also met in secret: On at least three other occasions in 2019 and 2020, Mr. Isaias flew into Addis Ababa unannounced, one former official said. Aviation authorities were instructed to keep quiet, and an unmarked car was sent to take him to Mr. Abiy’s compound.

Around that time, Eritrean officials also regularly visited the Amhara region, which has a long history of rivalry with Tigray. Crowds thronged the streets when Mr. Isaias visited the ancient Amhara city of Gondar in November 2018, chanting, “Isaias, Isaias, Isaias!”

Later, a troupe of Eritrean singers and dancers visited Amhara. But the delegation included Eritrea’s spy chief, Abraha Kassa, who used the trip to meet with Amhara security leaders, the senior Ethiopian official said. Eritrea later agreed to train 60,000 troops from the Amhara Special Forces, a paramilitary unit that later deployed to Tigray.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in February 2019, Mr. Abiy advocated an effective merger of Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti — a suggestion that dismayed Ethiopian officials who saw it as straight from the playbook of Mr. Isaias.

Aides also saw the remarks as further proof of Mr. Abiy’s impulsive tendencies, leading them to cancel his news conference during the Nobel ceremonies in Oslo 10 months later.

Irreconcilable Visions Lead to War

Mr. Abiy viewed the Tigrayans as a threat to his authority — perhaps even his life — from his first days in power.

The Tigrayans had preferred another candidate as prime minister, and Mr. Abiy told friends he feared Tigrayan security officials were trying to assassinate him, an acquaintance said.

At the prime minister’s residence, soldiers were ordered to stand guard on every floor. Mr. Abiy purged ethnic Tigrayans from his security detail and created the Republican Guard, a handpicked unit under his direct control, whose troops were sent for training to the United Arab Emirates — a powerful new ally also close to Mr. Isaias, a former Ethiopian official said.

The unexplained killing of the Ethiopian military chief, Gen. Seare Mekonnen, an ethnic Tigrayan who was shot dead by a bodyguard in June 2019, heightened tensions.

The rift with the Tigrayans was also driven by profound political differences. Within weeks of the Nobel Prize decision, Mr. Abiy created the Prosperity Party, which incarnated his vision of a strong, centralized Ethiopian government.

But that vision was anathema to the millions of Ethiopians who yearned for greater regional autonomy — in particular the Tigrayans and members of his own ethnic group, the Oromo.

Accounting for about one-third of the country’s 110 million people, the Oromo have long felt excluded from power. Many hoped Mr. Abiy’s rise would change that.

But the Prosperity Party catered to Mr. Abiy’s ambitions, not theirs, and in late 2019 violent clashes between police officers and protesters erupted across the Oromia region, culminating in the death in June 2020 of a popular singer.

Against this tumultuous backdrop, the slide toward war accelerated.

Ethiopian military cargo planes began to make clandestine flights at night to bases in Eritrea, said a senior Ethiopian official.

Mr. Abiy’s top aides and military officials privately debated the merits of a war in Tigray, the former official said. Dissenters included Ethiopia’s army chief, Gen. Adem Mohammed.

By then the Tigrayans were also gearing up for war, searching for allies in the Northern Command, Ethiopia’s most powerful military unit, which was based in Tigray.

In September the Tigrayans went ahead with a regional election, in open defiance of an order from Mr. Abiy. Mr. Abiy moved troops from the Somali and Oromia regions toward Tigray.

In a video conference call in mid-October, Mr. Abiy told governing party officials that he would intervene militarily in Tigray, and that it would take only three to five days to oust the region’s leaders, said Mr. Gebremeskel, the former senior official now in exile.

On Nov. 2 the European Union foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell Fontelles, publicly appealed to both sides to halt “provocative military deployments.” The next evening, Tigrayan forces attacked an Ethiopian military base, calling it a pre-emptive strike.

Eritrean soldiers flooded into Tigray from the north. Amhara Special Forces arrived from the south. Mr. Abiy fired General Adem and announced a “law enforcement operation” in Tigray. Ethiopia’s ruinous civil war was underway.

ተጋሩ ኢትዮጵያውያን ለምን በዓለም ታይቶ የማይታወቀውና ጭካኔ የተሞላበት ጭፍጨፋ ሰለባ ሆኑ?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 26, 2021

💭 ፋሺስቱ የኦሮማራው አገዛዝ የጀነሳይዱን ማስተርፕላን በየትኛውም የዓለማችን ክፍል ታይቶ በማይታወቅና ፍጹምነት በተሞላበት መልክ እየፈጸመው ነው!

እንቁላሉ ቀስ በቀስ ነው በእግሩ መሄድ የጀመረው። ዲያብሎስ አባታቸው ለአምስት ሺህ ዓመታት ያህል የሰው ልጅን የማጥናት ዕድል ነበረው፤ ኦሮሞዎቹ ደግሞ ያለፉትን አምስት መቶ ዓመታት “ሐበሻን” በደንብ ሲመረምሩ እና ሲያጠኑ ኖረዋል። ዛሬ የቀሰሙትን ትምህርት በሥራ ላይ በማዋል ላይ ናቸው። ዶ/ር ደብረጽዮን ግራኝን “በጣም ተንኮለኛ ሰው ነው” ሲሉት፤ የታየኝ ይህ እባባዊ ተንኮላቸው ነበር።

በኦሮሞዎቹ የምኒልክ፣ ጣይቱ፣ ኃይለ ሥላሴ እና መንግስቱ ኃይለ ማርያም አገዛዞች ዘመን ያለነበረ አጋጣሚ ዛሬ ተፈጥሯልና። ተጋሩን አስመልክቶ ምኒልክ፣ ጣይቱ፣ ኃይለ ሥላሴ፣ መንግስቱ ኃይለ ማርያም “በሞኝነት ሰርተዋቸዋል” ከሚላቸው “ስህተቶች ዛሬ አንደግመውም፣ በረሃብ እንጨርሳቸዋለን!” የሚል “ብልጠት” እና ጽኑ እምነት የዛሬዎቹ ኦሮሞዎች ፈላጭ ቆራጮች አላቸውና ነው።

አዎ! በትግራይ/ኤርትራ ተጋሩ ላይ ዛሬ ፈንድቶ የሚታየው ጥላቻ ከ፻፴/130 ዓመታት በፊት በዲቃላው ምኒልክ የተጠመደ የጊዜ ፈንጅ ነው! ይህን ሁሉ ዘመን ተጋሩዎች አቅፈው መኖራቸውና መታገሳቸው የሚያስገርም ነው!

አክሱማውያን ቤተሰቦቻችን በዘመነ ምኒልክ እና ኃይለ ሥላሴ ሳይቀር ንብረት የማፍራት፣ መሬትና ቤት የመግዛት መብት ወይ ይነፈጋቸው አልያ ደግሞ ከሌላው በእጥፍ ድርብ እንዲገዙ ፣ በየመስሪያ ቤቱ ደግሞ እድገት እንዳይኖራቸው ይደረጉ እንደነበሩ ነግረውናል። በደርግ ጊዜ ደግሞ አድሎው እየተጠናከረ መጥቶ ቤቶቻቸውን፣ ንብረቶቻቸውንና መሬቶቻቸውን ተነጥቀዋል፣ በየቀበሌው የአዲስ አበባ ተወላጆች ሳይቀሩ የትግራዋይ ስም የነበራቸው ሕፃናት እና ወጣቶች በየቀበሌው እየታጎሩ ሲገረፉና ሲሰቃዩ እንደነበሩ እኔ እራሴ ምስክር ነኝ።

💭 ሰሞኑን “ታሪኬ ባጭሩ” የምልበት ሰሞን ነው።

በጊዜው “ችለን እንለፈው፤ እግዚአብሔር ያውቃል” እያልን የግፉን እና ጭካኔውን ጭነት ተሸክመን እናልፈው ነበር። ዛሬ ግን ያ ዘመን አብቅቶለታል። ይህ የእያንዳንዱ ጎሣ ወይንም ብሔር ወንጀል ግልጥልጥ ተደርጎ የሚነገርበት ዘመን ነው። በቅርብ ዘመዶቼ፣ በአጎቶቼ እና አክስቶቼ ላይ ኦሮሞዎችና ኦሮማራዎች የሠሯቸውን ግፎች ዘርዝሬ አልጨርሰውም። ግራኝ ስልጣን ላይ ከወጣበት ጊዜ አንስቶማ አያቶቼ በፍቅር ያኖሯቸው፣ ቤት የሠሩላቸውና በሁሉም ረገድ የረዷቸው ኦሮሞዎች በኋላ ላይ ስላደረሱባቸው ግፍ ሳስበው ዛሬ ደሜ ይፈላል። ኦሮሞዎች እንደ ቱርኮች፣ አፍጋኖችና አረቦች፤ ፍትህ፣ ፍቅርና እኩልነት የማያውቁ፣ “ሁሌ አምጡ አምጡ!” የሚሉ ምስጋና ቢሶች መሆናቸውን 100% እርግጠኛ ሆኜ መናገር እችላለሁ። ማንነታቸውና ምንነታቸው ነውና!

Children Reportedly Among Tigrayan Detainees in Ethiopia | በኦሮሚያ ተጋሩ ጨቅላዎች ሳይቀሩ ታስረዋል

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 18, 2021

💭 My Note:

Does the Evil PROJECTOR in-chief A. Ahmed have the audacity to accuse TDF of using child soldiers while detaing, starving and murdering Tigrayan babies?!

One of those detained described grim conditions in which more than 700 Tigrayan military members, their families and retired peoples are held at a camp in Ethiopia’s Oromia region.„

Where are the Querro Oromos when ethnic cleansing, persecutions, and pogroms are taking place in their own zone? Of course, evil A. Ahmed’s fascist regime which is waging a genocidal war against Tigrayans is entirely an Oromo one – and Oromos like their Muslim brother particularly despise ancient Orthodox Christians and true Ethiopians – which the Tigrayans are.

Last year, on 7 May 2020, addressing Tigray’s preparations for election, the monster Abiy Ahmed who – like many of his brothers and sisters in genocide — sent his biological children to The USA for safety made the following preparatory statement: “in order for politicians to assume power children shall not perish, mothers shall not wail, houses shall not be destroyed and people shall not be displaced”. Isn’t that what’s happening now to Tigray and Tigrayans?

❖❖❖[Mark 9:42]❖❖❖

Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”

❖❖❖[የማርቆስ ወንጌል ምዕራፍ ፱፥፵፪]❖❖❖

በእኔም ከሚያምኑት ከእነዚህ ከታናናሾቹ አንዱን የሚያሰናክል ሁሉ ትልቅ የወፍጮ ድንጋይ በአንገቱ ታስሮ ወደ ባሕር ቢጣል ይሻለው ነበር።”

❖❖❖[2 Thessalonians 1:9]❖❖❖“These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,”

❖❖❖[፪ኛ ወደ ተሰሎንቄ ሰዎች ምዕራፍ ፩፥፱፡፲]❖❖❖
በዚያም ቀን በቅዱሳኑ ሊከብር፥ ምስክርነታችንንም አምናችኋልና በሚያምኑት ሁሉ ዘንድ ሊገረም ሲመጣ፥ ከጌታ ፊት ከኃይሉም ክብር ርቀው በዘላለም ጥፋት ይቀጣሉ።”

Children Reportedly Among Tigrayan Detainees in Ethiopia

Small children are among those held amid a new wave of detentions of ethnic Tigrayans suspected of supporting Tigray forces in Ethiopia’s growing war, one detainee says, while witnesses and a human rights watchdog describe fresh disappearances in recent weeks.

One of those detained described grim conditions in which more than 700 Tigrayan military members, their families and retired peoples are held at a camp in Ethiopia’s Oromia region.

Readily giving his military ID number but speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation, the non-combatant said that two detainees died after beatings and another died from lack of medication for a pre-existing condition.

“They call us cancers and tell us they will destroy us,” the detainee said, describing how military personnel overseeing the detainees threatened to shoot “each and every one of you” if anyone tried to escape.

New detainees continue to arrive, he said, and they have not appeared in court.

He listed five children detained who are under three years of age.

His account reveals worse conditions than those described in interviews with more than a dozen detainees and their families earlier this year before the resurgent Tigray forces retook much of the Tigray region in June and the Ethiopian military retreated.

His account could not be verified as Ethiopian authorities have not granted the press access to detention facilities.

A spokeswoman for the International Committee for the Red Cross confirmed that the group started visiting detainees in July, months after being made aware of them, but she could not comment on the conditions in which they’re held.

What began as a political dispute between the current prime minister and Tigray regional leaders who dominated Ethiopia’s government for nearly three decades has killed thousands of people since the fighting began in November.

The war has spilled into Ethiopia’s Amhara and Afar regions in recent weeks and displaced hundreds of thousands of people.

Millions of people in the Tigray region remain cut off from the world, and some have begun to starve to death.

Ethiopia’s government, on the defensive, last week called on all able citizens to stop the Tigray forces “once and for all”, while urging people to watch for suspected collaborators.

Although the government has repeatedly said it is targeting the Tigray forces and not ordinary Tigrayan civilians, numerous witness accounts allege otherwise.

An Ethiopian military spokesman, Colonel Getinet Adane, did not respond to a request for comment on the detainee’s account or a question about why small children are allegedly being held.

Outside the military, thousands of ordinary Tigrayans have been targeted.

In a new report on Wednesday, Human Rights Watch said Ethiopian authorities have carried out “rampant arbitrary arrests and enforced disappearances” of Tigrayans in the capital, Addis Ababa, since the stunning turn in the war in June, when Ethiopia withdrew its soldiers from Tigray and announced a unilateral ceasefire.

The rights group cited interviews with eight current and former detainees plus relatives, witnesses and lawyers of 23 others whose whereabouts are unknown.

Several people said they later saw detained civilian relatives or friends in state media broadcasts claiming to show captured Tigray forces.

“The government should immediately stop its ethnic profiling, which has cast unjustified suspicion on Tigrayans,” Human Rights Watch researcher Laetitia Bader said.

The report comes as United States special envoy Jeffrey Feltman visits Ethiopia in the latest effort to press the government and Tigray forces to immediately stop the fighting.

It appeared that Ethiopian prime minister Abby Ahmed, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, would not be meeting the US special envoy, as his office said he had travelled to Turkey to meet with its president.

Mr Abby’s spokeswoman, Billene Seyoum, and the State Department did not comment.

Among the newly detained is Hailu Kebede, an official with the Salsay Woyane Tigray opposition party who has briefed diplomats and others on the war.

His lawyer, Kirubel Gebregziabher, confirmed that he is accused of participating in the war and “misinforming” people about a deadly airstrike by the Ethiopian military on a crowded market in Tigray in June.

His next court appearance was delayed until Thursday in what supporters called an attempt to block any meeting with the US envoy.

While the war is said to be popular among Ethiopians, some have expressed distress at the treatment of Tigrayans in their communities.

Last week a government worker, who described his ethnicity as Amhara and Oromo, wept as he said police and local authorities were going around government housing in his city in the Oromia region and telling Tigrayan families they had hours to clear out.

“Without any legal paper, without and reason,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.

“These are Ethiopians,” he said.

“It’s horrible. … I’m a patriotic person, but that doesn’t mean I support the government to do something unacceptable against Tigrayans.”

Ethiopia has six million Tigrayans.

“What will the country do with them?” he asked.
