Josep Borrell on Genocide in Tigray, Ethiopia: ‘ This’s Done by a Gov’t Whose PM is a Nobel Laureate’

💭 US President Joe Biden has been criticized for being cozy with Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who has been accused of war crimes.

  • EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell says he spent the entire year “very frustrated” by Ethiopia’s civil war.
  • He has blamed the EU for paying more attention to Russia’s war in Ukraine than the Tigray crisis in Ethiopia.
  • Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has been criticised for being cosy with Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who has been accused of war crimes.
  • European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Josep Borrell says the conflict in Ethiopia kept him “very busy, very sorry and very frustrated” for the greater part of 2022.

Speaking at the 24th EU-Non-Governmental Organization Forum on Human Rights in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday, Borrell said it infuriated him that “not enough people talk about it”.

“We do not talk a lot about Ethiopia,” he added.

He said the war in Ukraine was getting more attention from the EU, although it was “relatively smaller” than the civil war in Ethiopia’s Tigray, where between 700 000 and 800 000 lives were lost.

“We complain rightly about what is happening in Ukraine, but what is happening in Ethiopia is really awful. There is not such a mortality in any other place in the world caused by a war,” he added.

He said it was painful that most of the Ethiopians died of famine. “Most of them (were killed) by famine – not fighting, but by famine, cutting humanitarian support, cutting electricity, cutting any kind of public services.”

Borrell added that the situation in Ethiopia occurred under the watch of what he termed an internationally celebrated leader.

“I remind you that this is being done by a government whose prime minister (Abiy Ahmed) is a Nobel Prize laureate,” he said.

At the recent US-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, pictures went viral of US President Joe Biden watching the FIFA World Cup match between Morocco and France on television and being jovial with Ahmed. Biden was then criticised for somewhat endorsing an alleged war criminal.

This also didn’t go down well with civil society activists, who accuse Abiy of genocide and war crimes.

Borrell said it was a tragedy that innocent lives were lost because of the political machinations of the ruling elite.

“You can discuss politically who is to be blamed for the reasons for the war to start, but the result is that for months and months there has been a continuous violation of human rights at a massive scale,” he said.

An agreement for the cessation of hostilities in Ethiopia was reached in November after the facilitation of statesmen from South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria at the behest of the US, who had worked with the African Union.

The EU was not involved in the process despite the British Council, Alliance Francaise, the Goethe Institute and the Italian Cultural Institute making up the four-member European Union National Cultural Institutes cluster in Ethiopia.

✞✞✞ የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ዳግም ምፅዓት ✞✞✞

ቅዱስ ማቴዎስ በወንጌሉ(ማቴ ፳፭) ስለ ጌታችን ዳግም አመጣጥ እና በፍርድ ወንበር መቀመጥ ሲገልጽ «የሰው ልጅ በክብሩ በሚመጣበት ጊዜ ከእርሱም ጋር ቅዱሳን መላእክቱ ሁሉ፥ በዚያን ጊዜ በክብሩ ዙፋን ይቀመጣል፤ አሕዛብም ሁሉ በፊቱ ይሰበሰባሉ፤ እረኛም በጎቹን ከፍየሎች እንደሚለይ እርስ በርሳቸው ይለያቸዋል፤ በጎችን በቀኙ ፍየሎችንም በግራው ያቆማቸዋል።» በማለት ጻድቃንን በበጎች፣ ኃጥአንን በፍየሎች መስሎ ጻድቃንን ለክብር በቀኝ፣ ኃጥአንን ለሃሳር በግራ ለይቶ ያቆማቸዋል። ቀጥሎም ጌታችን ክርስቶስ በፍርድ ቃል በቀኙ ያሉትን «እናንተ የአባቴ ቡሩካን፥ ኑ ዓለም ከተፈጠረበት ጊዜ ጀምሮ የተዘጋጀላችሁን መንግሥት ውረሱ። ተርቤ አብልታችሁኛልና፥ ተጠምቼ አጠጥታችሁኛልና፥ እንግዳ ሆኜ ተቀብላችሁኛልና፥ ታርዤ አልብሳችሁኛልና፥ ታምሜ ጠይቃችሁኛልና፥ ታስሬ ወደ እኔ መጥታችኋልና።» ይላቸዋል። ነገር ግን ጻድቃን ብዙ መልካም ሥራ ሰርተው ሳለ ምንም እንዳልሰሩና እንዳላደረጉ ሆነው ከእግዚአብሔር ቸርነት የተነሳ ክብር እንደተሰጣቸው አውቀው በትህትና ቃል «ጌታ ሆይ፥ ተርበህ አይተን መቼ አበላንህስ? ወይስ ተጠምተህ አይተን መቼ አጠጣንህ? እንግዳ ሆነህስ አይተን መቼ ተቀበልንህ? ወይስ ታርዘህ አይተን መቼ አለበስንህ? ወይስ ታመህ ወይስ ታስረህ አይተን መቼ ወደ አንተ መጣንይሉታል። እርሱም መልሶ በሕይወት ዘመናቸው ከእነርሱ ለሚያንሱት ያደረጉትን መልካም የቸርነትና ትህትና ሥራ እንደዋጋ ቆጥሮላቸው «እውነት እላችኋለሁ፥ ከሁሉ ከሚያንሱ ከእነዚህ ወንድሞቼ ለአንዱ እንኳ ስላደረጋችሁት ለእኔ አደረጋችሁት» ብሎ ጻድቃንን ወደ ዘለዓለም ሕይወት ይሰዳቸዋል።

ነገር ግን በኃጥአን ላይ ከዚህ በተቃራኒ ፍርዱም ሆነ የእነሱም ምላሽ የተለየ ይሆናል። ጌታም እርሱን ባላመለኩት መጠንና ከሰይጣናት በተስማማ ሁኔታ መንገዳቸውን ባደረጉ ልክ እንዲህ በማለት ይፈርድባቸዋል፤ «እናንተ ርጕማን፥ ለሰይጣንና ለመላእክቱ ወደ ተዘጋጀ ወደ ዘለዓለም እሳት ከእኔ ሂዱ። ተርቤ አላበላችሁኝምና፥ ተጠምቼ አላጠጣችሁኝምና፥ እንግዳ ሆኜ አልተቀበላችሁኝምና፥ ታርዤ አላለበሳችሁኝምና፥ ታምሜ ታስሬም አልጠየቃችሁኝምና።» እነርሱ ግን ፍርዱን በመቃወም እንዲህ እያሉ ይከራከራሉ። «ጌታ ሆይ፥ ተርበህ ወይስ ተጠምተህ ወይስ እንግዳ ሆነህ ወይስ ታርዘህ ወይስ ታመህ ወይስ ታስረህ መቼ አይተን አላገለገልንህምጌታችንም በምላሹ የርህራሄን ሥራ ለታናናሾቻችሁ አልሰራችሁም ፤ ያን አለመስራታችሁ ለኔ አለመስራታችሁ ነው ብሎ ወደ ዘለዓለም ቅጣት ይሰዳቸዋል።

ያቺ የፍርድ ቀን የዓለም ፍጻሜ ናት። በዛች ቀን መስማት እንጂ መመለስ መከራከር የለም። የዚያች ቀን የፍርድ ውሳኔ ዛሬ በምድር ላይ የምንፈጽመው የአምልኮና የመልካም ወይም የክፉ ምግባር ውጤት ነው። ዛሬ አካሄዳችንን ከእግዚአብሔር ጋር ካደረግን ከእግዚአብሔር ጋር በተስፋዪቱ ኢየሩሳሌም ሰማያዊት እንሆናለን፤ዛሬ አካሄዳችንን ከዲያብሎስ ጋር ካደረግን ግን በግራ ከዲያብሎስ ጋር እንቆማለን፤ትሉ በማያንቀላፋ እሳቱ በማይጠፋ በገሃነም እሳት መኖር ግድ ይለናል። የዛሬ የአምልኮ አያያዛችን የፍጻሜውን ቀን ይወስነዋልና ዛሬ ሳናመነታ አኗኗራችንን እንወስን።

❖❖❖ [Matthew 25:31-34] ❖❖❖

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”
