በመርከብ ተሳፍረው ሲጓዙ የነበሩት ሁሉም ሲሞቱ የኦነጉ ፖለቲከኛ ብቻ ተርፎ ሬሳቸውን ወደ ባሕር ለመወርወር በቃ | ታምኑታላችሁን?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 28, 2019

መሀመድ አደም ኦጋግ ከስደተኞች ጀልባ የተረፈው ሰው ነበር ፡፡ ሊቢያን ለቀው ሲወጡ በመርከብ ተሳፍረው 15 ነበሩ ፡፡

በመርከብ ተሳፍረው የነበሩት አስራ አምስት ሰዎች ወንድ እና ነፍሰ ጡር ሴት ከጋና ፣ ሁለት ወንዶች ከኢትዮጵያ እና 11 ሶማሊያን ያቀፉ ናቸው፡፡

በታሪኩ መሠረት እያንዳንዱ ስደተኛ ከሊቢያ ወደ አውሮፓ ክፍት በሆነው ሞቃታማ የማዕከላዊው ሜድትራንያን ባህር ጉዞው ለአንድ አዘዋዋሪ 700 ዶላር እያንዳንዳቸው ከፍለው ነበር፡፡

መሀመድ ኦጋ የሚከተለውን ተናግሯል፦

11 ቀናት በባህር ላይ ነበርን፡፡ በመሃል የባህሩን ውሃ መጠጣት ጀመርን ፡፡ ከአምስት ቀናት በኋላ ሁለት ሰዎች ሞቱ፡፡ በየቀኑ ሁለት በተጨማሪ ይሞታሉ። ”

አንድ በአንድ ፣ በጀልባው ላይ የነበረ ሰው ሁሉ ይሞታል ፣ እኔና ሶማሌው እስማኤል ብቻ ተረፍን፡፡ እስማኤልም አለአሁን ሁሉም ሰው ሞቷል ፡፡ ለምን እንኖራለን፤ አብረን እንሙት አለኝ፡ እኔ ግን አይሆንም አልኩት”

አሁን በጀልባው ውስጥ ሁሉም ሞቱ ፡፡ ፀሐያማና ሞቃታማ ነበር። ምግብም ሆነ ውሃ አልነበረንም፡፡ ከእስማኤል ጋር ሆነን አስከሬኖቹን አንድ በአንድ ወስደን ወደ ባህሩ ወረወርናቸው፡፡ አስከሬኖቹ መሽተት ጀመረው ነበር። ከዚያም እስማኤልም ሞተ፣ አላህ እኔን ብቻ በተዓምር አተረፈኝ”

ባሕር ውስጥ ህይወታቸው ላለፈው ምስኪኖች ነፍሳቸውን ይማርላቸው።

በጣም ይገርማል፦ ግን መሀመድ ኦጋ በእነርሱ ሞት ምን ዓይነት ሚና ተጫውቶ ይሆን? አንድ የኦሮሞ ነጻ አውጭ ግንባር ፕለቲከኛ በአሁኑ ሰዓት ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ለመመለስ ይፈራል እንዴ? እንደው ይህ እንዴት ሊታመን ይችላል? መወሻከት አይሆንበትምን? እንደሚመስለኝ ምናልባት ከእስማኤል ጋር ሆኖ መርዞ የገደላቸውን መንገደኞች ወደ ባሕር ወርውሮ ከጨረሰ በኋላ ምስክር እንዳይሆን እስማኤልንም ገድሎ ወደ ባሕሩ ወርውሮት ይሆናል፤ ከዚህ በፊትም ተመሳሳይ አሳዛኝ ክስተት ወደ የመን በሚጓዙ ብዙ ኢትዮጵያውያን ላይ ታይቷል ፥ እኔ በበኩሌ ይህን ሰው አላምነውም፤ ማንኛውንም የኦነግ ፖለቲከኛ ነኝ የሚል ሰው ለማመን ያዳግተኛል፤ እነዚህን ሰዎች ከፍተኛ የሆነ የመንፈሳዊ ቀውስ ገጥሟቸዋል፤ ከእነ መሪዎቻቸው ሁሉም ታመዋል፣ ተረብሸዋል፣ አብደዋል፤ ምን ይሻላቸዋል?

ቢቢሲ ካወሳቸው ነገሮች መካከል፦

ራሱን የቀድሞው አመፀኛ ቡድን የኦሮሞ ነፃነት ግንባር ፖለቲከኛ እንደሆነ የገለፀው የ 38 ዓመቱ መሀመድ ኦጋ ፣ ከጀርመን ወዳጆቹ ጋር ከተገናኘ በኋላ ነበር ጉዞውን ለማድረግ የወሰነው፡፡”

(38-year-old Oga, who describes himself as an exiled Ethiopian politician from former rebel group, the Oromo Liberation Front, said he decided to make the journey after he was contacted by friends from Germany.)

መሀመድ ኦጋ እንደ ቢቢሲ ገለፃ የቀድሞው አመፀኛ ቡድን ኦነግ አባል ነው፤ ኦነግ በኢትዮጵያ ሕገ ወጥ ስለሆነ ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ከተመለሰ በቁጥጥር ስር እውላለሁ፣ እታሰራለሁ ብሎ ሰግቷል፡፡

(Mohammed Oga, according to the BBC, believes he faces arrest if he returns to Ethiopia because his former rebel group is outlawed.)

No Food, Water And Fuel: The Horrific Journey Of 15 Migrants From Libya To Europe As Told By Lone Survivor

Mohammed Oga

Mohammed Oga was the only one who survived on the voyage from Libya to Europe. There were fifteen people on board, including a pregnant woman

First, their fuel ran out. Next, was their food. And then their water. And then one by one, fourteen out of the fifteen people (including a pregnant woman) on the canoe they were aboard, took their last breath and were toppled overboard.

Mohammed Adam Oga, the lone survivor, was spotted and picked up in Maltese waters on Monday, August 19, after the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, Frontex, spotted a dinghy adrift at sea, reports the BBC.

Footage of the rescue by Malta’s armed forces showed Oga slumped over a man’s body before he was airlifted to hospital.

According to the story, each migrant had paid a smuggler $700 to aid them in making the journey from Libya to Europe in the open sea and in the scorching heat of the Central Mediterranean, which is one of the deadliest stretches of water in the world.

38-year-old Oga, who describes himself as an exiled Ethiopian politician from former rebel group, the Oromo Liberation Front, said he decided to make the journey after he was contacted by friends from Germany.

He told the Times of Malta that once in Libya, he met a Somali named Ismail and together they arranged their passage via a smuggler.

And then, on August 1, having been given the GPS and showed where to head towards, they set off from the Libyan city of Zawia, 45km (28 miles) west of the capital, Tripoli, he said.

The fifteen people on board comprised of a man and a pregnant woman from Ghana, two men from Ethiopia, and 11 Somalis, he added.

Mohammed Oga described the moment after which they run out of fuel, food and water, as a desperate situation as they tried in vain to get help from boats and helicopters passing by.

We were at sea for 11 days. We started drinking sea water. After five days, two people died. Then every day, two more died.”

Oga described his survival as a ‘God-sent.’

God sent the Maltese to save me,” he told Times of Malta, while being attached to a drip and too weak to walk.

Narrating his ordeal to the Times of Malta, Oga demonstrated, by slowly closing his eyes, how each fellow passenger of his died.

One by one, almost everybody on the boat died, leaving him with Ismail. “Ismail said, ‘Everyone is dead now. Why would we live?”

They died in the boat. It was sunny, hot. No food and no water. Ismail said we should put the bodies in the sea. We took the bodies and threw them in the water. The bodies were smelling.”

Rubber Boat

A critically ill Mohammed leans over the dead body of his friend Ismail before the rescue on Monday

Oga narrated how at one point, Ismail became frustrated, going as far as asking that they both die together but he refused. Not long after that, Ismail also died.

He remembers the last days of his journey like being a dream although he does not remember his rescue and was unaware that Ismail had died.

Mohammed Oga, according to the BBC, believes he faces arrest if he returns to Ethiopia because his former rebel group is outlawed. He left 15 years ago, first for Eritrea and then Sudan, and wants to travel to the UK.

According to the UN, 839 people have died trying to cross the Mediterranean, making it the most dangerous sea route for refugees and migrants in the world.

Mohammed is one of more than 40,000 people who have survived crossing the treacherous Mediterranean to Europe’s coasts this year, including 1,000 to Malta.

Another Tragedy: African ‘Boat People’ Drowning in Front of A Tunisian Ship – And Afrophobes and Racists Applauding Their Death and Calling for More Genocide

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 24, 2016

I don’t fully trust their twisted version of the story. Here the DailyMail reported about it this way.

Doomed By Their Last Bid To Reach Europe: Migrants Sink Their Own Boat After Crashing It Into The Side Of A Tunisian Fishing Trawler They Mistook For The Coast Guard


  • Video shows migrants drowning after their dinghy comes aside a trawler
  • Human traffickers apparently mistook the trawler for a coastguard ship
  • A voice on board the ship shouts in Italian for the migrants to keep calm

A shocking video has emerged of a dinghy packed with migrants sinking in the Mediterranean after they mistook a Tunisian trawler for a coastguard ship.

The footage appeared on the internet today and comes as the Italian coastguard warned that eight people had died and many more were missing after another migrant boat went down in the Mediterranean.

A shocking video has emerged of a dinghy packed with migrants sinking in the Mediterranean after they mistook a Tunisian trawler for a coastguard ship.

The footage appeared on the internet today and comes as the Italian coastguard warned that eight people had died and many more were missing after another migrant boat went down in the Mediterranean.

It is not clear if the footage is from this week or from the summer but it clearly shows the large white dinghy aiming itself at the ship.

It comes alongside the trawler and, as the migrants desperately try to climb up the side of the fishing vessel, the dinghy capsizes and dozens are thrown into the sea.

Many of the migrants clearly cannot swim and only a handful are wearing lifebelts.

As a man onboard the trawler’s deck shouts in Italian: ‘Calma (Stay calm)’ the situation gets worse and eventually the bodies of people who have clearly drowned can be seen floating on the surface.

The video was uploaded onto Youtube, where a commentator says: ‘The crew were reluctant to help since letting them on board would have been a serious security risk as it would have them outnumbered 10 to 1.

‘The only way to help would be individuals of the crew rappelling down to to the sea line, which would most likely result in their own death as the immigrants would drag them down.’

The Italian coastguard has a policy of escorting to shore any migrants it finds at sea and it is thought those on the migrant boat thought they would be rescued and taken to Italy if their boat capsized next to the ship. They were unaware it was just a fishing vessel operating out of a Tunisian port.

Now here is something valuable for the world, for Africans, in particular, to document and report to The Almighty: Except for two or three of the comments, the vast majority of them is meant to devastate and dehumanize Africans. Mind you, it is the Arabs who are abusing, stealing, raping and murdering them, but the Bogeyman will always remain the African. Well, they’re united in Godlessness and hatred. The governments, the parties and the medias had done a very successful job in conditioning and preparing the unrepentant and easily manipulable folks for future cruelty and genocide – and, everywhere, the level of hatred is rising – and this genocide will be carried out, first and foremost, against us Africans and Christians.

Selected comments:

  • The title implies that they are deliberately sinking their own boat, but it looks more like they accidentally/carelessly capsized it in their frenzy to try and climb aboard the ship.

  • There are people drowned in matter of minutes, and I don’t understand the fucking why their boat was destroyed. This is beyond retarded and tragic.

  • All those excuses just so you can post a video of you watching people drown and sit there do nothing as they die, good job, you’re a piece of human shit.

  • Why would they help parasites survive? I was honestly expecting them to start shooting at the niggers so they died faster

  • lol why this Nigger beasts drown in less than a minute? Swimming is not hard.

  • There is plenty of space in the sea. Better put them there than let them come to europe.

  • LMAO Made my night. Watching African invaders drown while drinking California wine. Yes God is indeed great.

  • Looks like only whitey has been guilted into helping Africans.

  • What is going to happen in 100 years when Europe is majority Arab?

  • True story: Arab slave masters used to castrate their African slaves so they could not reproduce.

  • Looks like worms crawling all over each other

  • Arabs side with blacks and cry to stop racism only when they are in white countries so that they can take advantage!! Back in muslimland they hate blacks much more than whites ever did. WAKE UP!

  • The lifeboat just sitting there on deck while the arabs throw nets at them

  • And nothing of value was lost. Except maybe the clothes.

  • HAHAHAA fucking rats!! i wish i could be there throwing stones at these diving rapists! i watch this beautiful video when i feel sad.

  • People wonder why so many dead fish on the beaches now I know the answer

  • I am in favor of genocide. Either we do it! Or they (including the Jews who lead this genocide against us) do it to us!

  • We must eradicate all of them, what are they good for? Africa is huge and has lot’s of resources. Africans??? Why should we allow them to live (in Europe at least)? They are even more inferior than fucking Arabs (They must go too)! Eradicate em’ all! When they invade Europe, bomb the boats and record the few surviving drown and spread it all over the internet! That will show them that they are not welcome in THE WHITE MAN’S LAND! After we have secured our survival as a people 1488 (removing all non-Whites in Europe) we should colonize the whole of Africa (for the expansion of our race & for the resources we need) and if we need the Africans back in slavery we can do that, they’ve fucked our women and helped destory our culture & people. No more tolerance, we are in a racial war. Either we man up or go extinct! It’s almost like National Socialism isn’t enough, we need National Socialism on steroids!

  • These are people dying. And you /pol/ users and assorted racists are cheering it on. Regardless of your political leanings or views on migrants, you are honestly sick in the head to be praising anyone’s death. You folks make me sad. Raised online in your echo chambers and acting like you have no humanity. You watch people dying and laugh about it. The hate and disease in your souls is terrifying. Thank god none of you will ever be in any kind of position of authority or power in your lives, or at least we can only hope. You don’t know what happiness is.

  • Yall joking and shit….but one thing yall dumbasses dont realize….yall msking jokes about fucking africans and calling them the enemy…when jesus was a black man….sooooo. have fun with that knowledge now racist retarded fucks

Boat Carrying 600 Migrants Sinks Off Egypt, Killing At Least 43

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 22, 2016


A boat carrying almost 600 people capsized off Egypt’s coast on Wednesday, killing at least 43, in the latest disaster among migrants trying to reach Europe.

The boat sank in the Mediterranean Sea off Burg Rashid, a village in the northern Beheira province. Officials said 31 bodies had been found, 20 men, 10 women and one child. A Reuters correspondent later saw a fishing boat bring in 12 more bodies, bringing the total so far to 43.

Rescue workers have so far saved 154 people, officials said, meaning about 400 could still be missing.

The boat had been carrying Egyptian, Sudanese, Eritrean, and Somali migrants, officials said.

Mediterranean: Muslim Migrants Threw Christians Overboard

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 16, 2015

MediterrTragedyMuslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard — killing them — because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday.

Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sicily, said.

The original group of 105 people left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. Sometime during the trip north across the Mediterranean Sea, the alleged assailants — Muslims from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal — threw the 12 overboard, police said.

Other people on the voyage told police that they themselves were spared “because they strongly opposed the drowning attempt and formed a human chain,” Palermo police said.

The boat was intercepted by an Italian navy vessel, which transferred the passengers to a Panamanian-flagged ship. That ship docked in Palermo on Wednesday, after which the arrests were made, police said.

The 12 who died were from Nigeria and Ghana, police said.



The Plight Of African Boat People

At least 10 Christians from Nigeria including a pastor had died after being thrown overboard

Is The Term “Sub-Saharan Africa” Racist?

The Plight Of African Boat People

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 10, 2008

Just a couple of hours ago, migrant vessel sinks off Morocco carrying North African migrants. And, on the other side of Africa, about 100 migrants are feared to have drowned after being thrown overboard by smugglers in the Gulf of Aden, the UN refugee agency says. During the past 5 to 10 years alone, many thousand Africans have been thrown off ships and were given to Sharks as food. Those who made it to their anticipated destination suffer inhuman treatment and abuse. This situation is far worse than those Africans who were taken as slaves by European and Arab nations hundred of years ago. The most tragic part of the story is that no one is doing something about it.
