Nobel Laureate & Helina Birhanu Demand Justice For Sexual Violence Victims in Tigray, Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 14, 2022

💭 In northern Ethiopia, a woman taken to an Eritrean Defense Forces camp was raped by 27 soldiers and contracted AIDS. In Central African Republic the bodies of a woman and two girls were found days after their kidnapping and rape by armed fighters. And in Iraq, 2,800 Yazidi woman and children have been captives of the Islamic State extremist group for eight years, many subjected to sexual violence.

These are some of the examples raised at a U.N. Security Council meeting Wednesday on accountability for such acts in conflicts by Pramila Patten, the U.N. special representative on sexual violence in conflict, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad, a member of Iraq´s Yazidi religious minority forced into sexual slavery in 2014 who escaped her Islamic State captors.

Patten´s opening words were aimed squarely at the U.N.´s most powerful body, which has approved five resolutions that focus on preventing and addressing conflict-related sexual violence. What do those resolutions mean right now, she asked, for a woman in Ukraine, Afghanistan, Myanmar or Ethiopia´s northern Tigray region?

At this time of “great global turbulence marked by multiple crises,” she said, the world has seen “increased militarization, including an epidemic of coups, which have turned back the clock on women´s rights.” And every new war has seen human tragedies “including new waves of war´s oldest, most silences, and least-condemned crime” — sexual violence and rape in those countries and others whose victims “cry out for justice and redress.”

Patten said the gap between commitments by the Security Council, and compliance and reality is evident: The latest U.N. report covering conflicts in 18 countries documents 3,293 U.N.-verified cases of sexual violence committed in 2021, a significant increase of 800 cases compared to 2020. Again, she said, the highest number – 1,016 – were recorded in Congo.

Patten also cited examples in other conflict areas: two women from the Rohingya minority in Myanmar´s Chin state gang-raped by government soldiers resulting in unwanted pregnancies; a woman allegedly raped at gunpoint by Puntland police officer in Somalia where she said “abduction, rape and forced marriage are rampant;” documented cases in Colombia of sexual violence against women ex-combatants and their families; and the torture and killing of a female police officer who was eight months pregnant in Afghanistan´s Ghor province.

The U.N. special representative said the few cases of courts convicting perpetrators “are still the exception that prove the rule of justice denied.” Justice must be delivered in communities as well as courtrooms, and victims must receive reparations to rebuild their shattered lives, she said, stressing that “justice, peace and security are inextricably linked.”

Murad said at moments of global instability – like today’s world shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, a climate crisis and war – issues like conflict-related sexual violence “tend to be pushed aside as though they are somehow secondary to the real issues.” But she said “the truth is these are precisely the moment when protecting, supporting and investing in women and girls should be urgent priorities.”

History shows that when conflict erupts brutality comes to the fore, and “we are seeing this in Ukraine as we speak, with reports of sexual violence that should alarm us.” Later, she told reporters, “my heart is with the people of Ukraine, especially the women and girls out there that are facing this brutality.”

“Sexual violence is not a side effect of conflict,” Murad said. “It is a tactic of war as old as time.”

Last year, a German court convicted an Islamic State member of genocide in a Yazidi girl’s death in a historic verdict, she said. But despite reams of evidence documenting atrocities IS committed against women and girls, she said the extremist perpetrators have faced few, if any, consequences.

Murad said survivors need “more than moral outrage” and urged the Security Council to vote to refer the Islamic State extremist group to the International Criminal Court to be tried for genocide and sexual violence. against Yazidis. In the meantime, she urged other countries to follow Germany´s example and use the principle of universal jurisdiction to try alleged perpetrators for war crimes.

“If you want to establish deterrence, if you want to assure Yazidi women and survivors everywhere that you stand with us, do not delay justice anymore,” she said.

Britain´s Minister of State Lord Tariq Ahmad, who chaired the meeting, joined her in launching “The Murad Code” which aims to tell investigators, journalists and others in the international community how to support survivors of sexual violence by reducing the burden on them and ensuring that their experiences are recorded safely and strengthen the pursuit of justice.

“The pathway to justice must have obstacles removed,” he said. “So ultimately, it´s all about survivors, that they know what their options are. … They have to be the center of our response.”

The Amazing Myanmar Nun | የምያንማሯ ድንቅ ክርስቲያን መነኩሴ፤ “ወገኖቼን ከምትገድሏቸው እባካችሁ እኔን ግደሉኝ!”

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 8, 2021

👉 በቡድሂስቶች ሃገር በምያንማር/በርማ አመጹና ግድያው ቀጥሏል፤ ፖሊሶችና ወራሪ ሮሂንጋ ሙስሊሞች የዜጋውን ሕይወት ይቀጥፋሉ ክርስቲያኗ ሴት መነኩሴ ግን እራሳቸውን በመሰዋዕት አሳልፈው በመስጠት ለመላው ዓለም እንዲህ አርአያ ለመሆን በቅተዋል።

👉 ሴት ክርስቲያን ካቶሊክ መንኩሴዋ አን ሮዛ ኑ ታውንግ

ወገኖቼን ከምትገድሏቸው እባካችሁ እኔን ግደሉኝ!” እኔ ልንበርከክልዎት፤ የኔ እናት! 😢😢😢

ላለፉት ቀናት በብዛት በመገደል ላይ ላሉት የምያንማር አዲስ ወታደራዊ መንግስት ተቃዋሚዎች ምህረት እንዲያደርጉላቸው ሴት መንኩሴዋአን ሮዛ” ለመማጸን በፖሊሶች ፊትለፊት ተንበርክከው “ወገኖቼ ሲገደሉ ማየት አልፈልግምና ነው!” በማለት ጮኸው ነበር ። መነኩሴዋ ለመሞት ተዘጋጅተውና ሌሎች እንዲኖሩም ሕይወታቸውን መስዋእት ማድረግ ፈቃደኛ እንደነበሩ በማውሳት ድርጊቱን እንዲህ ሲሉ በዝርዝር ገልጸውታል፦

እሁድ ዕለት እኔ ክሊኒኩ ውስጥ ነበርኩ። ሌሎቹ ክሊኒኮች ዝግ ስለነበሩ በዚያ ቀን ሕክምና እሰጥ ነበር።ሰዎች ሲራመዱ አየሁ። ተቃውሞ እያሰሙ ነበር። በድንገት ሰልፈኞቹን ፖሊሶች፣ ወታደሮች እና የውሃ መድፎች ሲከተተሏቸው አየሁ። ከዚያም ተኩስ ከፍተው ሰልፈኞቹን መደብደብ ጀመሩ። ደነገጥኩኝ ዛሬ የምሞትበት ቀን ነው ብዬ አሰብኩ። ለመሞትም ወሰንኩ።

እንዳያደርጉት እየጠየኩኝ እና እየለመንኳቸው ነበር፤ እናም ሰልፈኞቹ ምንም [ወንጀል]አልፈፀሙም አልኳቸው። እንደ እብድ ሰው እያለቀስኩ ነበር። ጫጩቶቹን እንደምትጠብቅ እንደ እናት ዶሮ ነበርኩ ተቃዋሚዎችን ወደደበደቡበት እየሮጥኩ ነበር። ይህም ክሊኒኩ ፊት ለፊት ነበር ። ልክ እንደ ጦርነት ነበር። ከብዙ ሰዎች ይልቅ እኔ ብሞት ይሻላል ብዬ አሰብኩ።

ጮክ ብዬ እያለቀስኩ ነበር። ጉሮሮየም ህመም ላይ ነበር። ዓላማዬ ሰዎች እንዲያመልጡ እና የተቃውሞ ሰልፎችን እንዲያደርጉ እና የፀጥታ ኃይሎችን ለማስቆም ነበር። ሰዎችን ማሰሩን እንዳይቀጥሉ ጠየቅኳቸው። እየለምንኳቸው ነበር። በዚያን ጊዜ አልፈራሁም። እኔ ፈርቼ ብሸሽ ኖሮ ሁሉም በችግር ውስጥ ይገኙ ነበር። በጭራሽ አልፈራሁም። ቀደም ሲል ስለተገደሉት የናይፒታው ልጃገረድ እና ስለ ማንዳላይ ሴት ልጅ እያሰብኩ ነበር። ከገጠር ስለመጡትና ስለ ወደቁትን ነፍሳት ሁሉ እያሰብኩ ነበር። በሚትኪና ሰዎች ላይ ክፉ ነገር እንዳይመጣባቸው ተጨንቄ ነበር።

ወደ ባኒያን ዛፍ ሲደርሱ እኔ [ፖሊሶቹን/ባለሥልጣናቱን]እየጠራኋቸውና እየነገርኳቸው ነበር: – ‘እባካችሁ እኔን ግደሉኝ። ሰዎች ሲገደሉ ማየት አልፈልግም።” ጮክ ብዬ እያለቅስኩ ስል እነርሱ ለጥቂት ጊዜ ቆሙ።

አንደኛው ወደ እኔ መጥቶ “እማማ ፣ ብዙ አይጨነቁ ፣ እኛ በእነሱ ላይ አንተኩስባቸውም” አለኝ ።

እኔ ግን እንዲህ በማለት ነግርኩት፤ “እነሱም በሌሎች መሳሪያዎች ሊገደሉ ይችላሉ። በእነሱ ላይ አይተኩሱ። እነሱ እኮ ዝም ብለው ተቃዋሚዎች ናቸው።”

በብዙ ቦታዎች እንዳየሁት ሰዎችን በጥይት እንደገደሉ በአእምሮዬ ውስጥ ስላለ በእነሱ ላይ አይተኩሱም ብዬ አላመንኩም ነበር። [አንዱን ተቃዋሚ] ወደ ክሊኒኩ አምጥቼ ህክምና ሰጠሁት። ፖሊሶቹ ሌላውን ተቃዋሚ እንደወደቀ ሊይዙት እንደተቃረቡ ፖሊሶቹንን አቁሜ ግብግቡን እንዳይቀጥሉ ጠየቅኳቸው። ለዚያም ነው ፖሊሱ ያላሰረው፤ ያለበለዚያ እነሱ ይይዙትና ከዚያም በጎትተቱ ነበር።

በሕዝቡ ላይ እየደረሰ ያለውን ነገር እንዳያችሁት እነሱ[ወታደሮቹ]የሕዝብ ጠባቂዎች እንዳልሆኑ ሆኖ ይሰማኛል። ሰዎች ደህና ሁኔታ አይደለም ያሉት እናም ጭካኔ የተሞላበት እስራት በሌሊት ይካሄዳል። የአንዲት ወጣት እናት ከሞተ አካል አጠገብ ስታለቅስ የሚያሳየውን ቪዲዮ ሳይ በጣም አዘንኩ። እኔ ደግሞ አምቡላንስ ሲወድም እና ባለሞያዎች በጠመንጃ ሲደበደቡም አይቻለሁ። እነሱ እኛን መጠበቅ ነበረባቸው፤ ግን ህዝባችን እራሱን መከላከል አለበት። በጎ አይደለም። እነሱ (የደህንነት ኃይሎች) የማይወዷቸውን ይይዟቸዋል፣ ይደበድቧቸዋል፣ ይገድሏቸዋል። የማያንማር ሕዝብን የሚከላከል ማንም የለም። ሰዎች እራሳቸውን መከላከል እና እርስ በእርስ መረዳዳት አለባቸው።”

ዋው! ድንቅ ድንቅ ነው! በሁዳዴ መግቢያ ይህን ያሳየን እግዚአብሔር አምላክ የተመሰገነ ይሁን! የአክሱም ጽዮን ልጆች በአውሬው ላይ ድል የሚቀዳጁበት ጊዜ እየተቃረበ ነው!

አንዲት የምያንማር መነኩሴ በጦርነት ቀጠና ውስጥ ተንበርክከው መሳሪያ ስላልታጠቁ ዜጎች ህይወት ለመማፀን ሲለምኑ ፖሊሶች መንቀሳቀስ አቅቷቸው ቆሙ፤ ይህ ድንቅ ምስል በመላው ዓለም ዞሯል። ቤተክርስቲያኗ እጅግ በጣም እምነት የለሽ በሆነችበት ጊዜ ብቸኛዋ መነኩሴ በሁከት ፣ ሽብር እና ስቃይ በተሞላባት ዓለም ውስጥ ሰላም የሰፈነበትን የእግዚአብሔርን መንግሥት ይመስላሉ። “የሚያስተራርቁ ብፁዓን ናቸው፥ የእግዚአብሔር ልጆች ይባላሉና።” [የማቴዎስ ወንጌል ምዕራፍ ፭፥፱] የኛዎቹስ አስታራቂዎችና ሰላም ፈጣሪዎች የት አሉ?

መነኩሴአን ሮዛ ኑ ታውንግለዓለም፤ በተለይ ለኢትዮጵያ እውነተኛ እና ታማኝ ምስክር ለመሆን ህይወታቸውን ለመስጠት የተዘጋጁ ጀግና የክርስቶስ ልጅ ናቸው። ሃይማኖታዊ ቅድስና ከፖለቲካ ርዕዮተ ዓለም ጋር ግራ አላጋባቸውም። በሚቀጥሉት መቶ ዘመናት በቤተ መቅደሳቸው ዙሪያ ስለሚያበሩት ሻማዎች እያሰቡም አልነበረም፣ ጸሎት በማድረግና በቅዳሴ ሥርዓት ላይ በመገኘት ብቻ ያለተግባር ፍትህ እንደማይገኝ፣ በዓይናቸው ለማየት በቅተው ነበር፣ መላ ሰውነታቸው በሰው ልጅ ስቃይ ፣ በሰው ልጅ ርህራሄ እና በሰው ልጅ ነፃነት ተውጧልና። አንድ ሰው ከእግዚአብሔር አምላኩ ጎን ነፍሱን ለአባቱና ለእናቱ፣ ለወንድሞቹና ለእህቶቹ፣ ለሚስቱና ለባሏ፣ ለልጆቹና ለጎረቤቶቹ፣ ለጓደኞቹና ለወገኖቹ ከሚሰጠው ፍቅር የበለጠ ፍቅር ሊኖር አይችልም።

እኝህ ድንቅ የምያንማር መነኩሴ ለጊዜያዊ ስልጣን፣ ተወዳጅ ለመሆን ወይም ተፅዕኖ ለመፍጠር ፍላጎት የላቸውም ፣ እማማ አን ሮዛ የራሳቸውን ስጋዊ አካል እንኳን ለማዳን አልፈሩም፣ ፍላጎትም አልነበራቸውም። የተለየ ኃይል እና ተጽዕኖ ያለው ተለዋጭ ታሪክን በመናገር ራሱን በመስቀል ላይ ለሞት አሳልፎ የሰጠውን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስን ይህ ቅዱስ የሆነ የመነኩሴዋ ተግባር በከፊል ያሳየናል። የአዲስ ኪዳን ትምህርት ለዓለም ምስክር መሆኑን ያስተምረናል። አዎ! በሰይፍ የሚኖሩ በሰይፍ ይወድቃሉ!

በሃገራችን እንዳየነው ክርስቲያን ነን የሚሉት ሳይቀሩ ሰላምን ለማስከበር በሚል የአውሬው ቅጥፈት ተታለው ለጊዚያዊ ጥቅም፣ ለስልጣን እና ኢጎ ሲሉ በትግራይ ሕዝብ ላይ ዓመፅን ተጠቅመው በሰላማዊ ሕዝብ ላይ አሰቃቂ ጭፍጨፋ እንዲካሄድባቸው ፈቀዱ። ጦርነቱ “ፍትሃዊ ጦርነት” ባለመሆኑ፤ ሁከት ሁከትን ይወልዳልና በሰይፍ የሚኖሩ በሰይፍ እየወደቁ እንደሆኑ እያየናቸው ነው።

ነጮች ዘረኛ የሆኑት የበላይነቱን ቢያጡ ጥቁሩ የሚበቀላቸውና የሚቀጣቸው ስለሚመስላቸው ይፈራሉና ነው

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 5, 2020

ከሦስት ዓመታት በፊት ያቀረብኩት መረጃ ነበር፤ ምንም የተለወጠ ነገር የለም ጉዳዩ ዛሬም ወቅታዊ ነው፦

ይለናል ከዚህ በፊት ዘረኛ ነበርኩ የሚለን ነጭ አሜሪካዊ። እንዲህ ዓይነት ሃቀኛ አያስደስትምን? ጎበዝ! እውነት ነፃ ታወጣናለች! እግዚአብሔር ልክ እንደርሱ ለብ የማይለውን ሰው ነው የሚወደው። የተናገረው ህሉ ትክክል ነው፤ በፈረንጆች (ኤዶማውያን) እንዲሁም በአረቦች (እስማኤላውያን) ውስጥ የገባው መንፈስ ሰይጣናዊ ነው። እነዚህ በዲያብሎሳዊ እራስወዳድነት የተለከፉት ህዝቦች (አብዛኞቹ)

  • 👉 ፍቅር አያውቁም

  • 👉 ደስታ አያውቁም

  • 👉 ሰላም አያውቁም

  • 👉 የሌላውን ችግር አይረዱም

  • 👉 እራሳቸውን ከፍ ሌላውን ዝቅ ያደርጋሉ

  • 👉 ጥፋተኛው ሌላው እንጅ እነርሱ አይሆኑም

  • 👉 ጥላቻን ያውቃሉ

  • 👉 ጨካኞች ናቸው

  • 👉 ፍርሃትን ያውቃሉ

  • 👉 ፍርሃት፣ ፍርሃት፣ ፍርሃት

[የዮሐንስ ራእይ ምዕራፍ ፫፥፲፭፡፲፮]

“በራድ ወይም ትኩስ እንዳይደለህ ሥራህን አውቃለሁ። በራድ ወይም ትኩስ ብትሆንስ መልካም በሆነ ነበር። እንዲሁ ለብ ስላልህ በራድም ወይም ትኩስ ስላልሆንህ ከአፌ ልተፋህ ነው።”

👉 ስለ ነጮች ፍርሃት፣ ትዕቢት፣ ኩራት እና እራስወዳድነት መነገር አለበት።

👉 ለምንድን ነው ነጮች ስለዘርኝነት ላለመናገር ሁሌ ራሳቸውን የሚከላከሉት?

👉 ለምንድን ነው ነጮች እውነታውን መጋፈጥ በጣም የሚቸገሩት? እንደኔ ከሆነ፤ ምክኒያቱ የተወሰነው ክፍል ፍርሃት ሌላው ክፍል ደግሞ ስግብግብነት ነው።

እኛ ነጮች ስልጣን እና የበላይነትን እንዲሁም ልዩ መብቶቻችንን ማጣት አንፈልግም። የነጮች የበላይነት በሰፈነበት ማህበረሰባችን ጥቅሞችን ማጣት አንፈልግምልል ሁሉንም ማጣት አንፈልግም።

ጥቁሩ እንዳይበቀለን እንፈራለን። የጥቁሩን ቅጣት እንፈራለን።

በጥቁር ህዝቦች ላይ ግፍ መስራት ከጀመርንበት ዕለት አንስቶ ይህን ነው የምንፈራው። ባርነቱ እንዴት ይረሳ? ያልክፍያ ስራው እንዴት ይረሳል?ት። ያለንን ሁሉ ማጣት እንፈራለን፣ መደባችንን ማጣት እንፈራለን። የጥቁሩን ቅጣት በጣም እንፈራዋለን!

ነጮች ወንድሞቼና እህቶቼ፡ አዎ! ተቀበሉት ኃይለኛ ፍርሃት ውስጥ ነን። ጥቁሩ ወደ ቤቶቻችሁ መጥቶ ቢያንኳኳ፡ “ያጠቃኝና ይጎዳኝ ይሆን?” ብላችሁ ትፈራላችሁ።

ጥቁሩ ባጠገባችሁ ሲያልፍ በፍርሃት ቦርሳዎቻችሁን ጠበቅ አድርጋችሁ ትይዛላችሁ። ስለሆነም ጥቁሩን በእስር ቤት ማጎር እንወዳለን፤ እስር ቤቱን የሞሉት ጥቁሮች ብቻ ናቸው።

አዎ! እንፈራቸዋልን፣ ላባዎቹ ፖሊሶች እንኳን ያልታጠቁትን ጥቁሮች ይፈሯቸዋል። የጥቁሩን ቅጣትና በቀል እንፈራለን።

እኛ ነጮች በበላይነት በሽታ ተለክፈናል መጥፎው ነገር ሁሉ የጥቁሮች እንደሆነ አድርገን እየሳልን እራሳችንን እናታልላለን። ለምኑ ነው ነጭ የበላይ የሆነው? የበላይነቱ ስሜት ከየት መጣ?

ጥቁር ቆዳው ጥቁር በመሆኑ የበላይነት ተሰምቶት መንገድ ላይ ሲንቀባረር አይቼ አላውቅም እንዲያውም በተቀራኒው ነው። ነጩ ግን በነጭነትኡ ሁሌ በኩራት ይንጠባረራል

👉 ስለዚህ ነጩ ነው እራሱን ማስተካከል ያለበት፦

ፍርሃታችሁን ተጋፈጡት! ስግብግብነታሁን ተጋፈጡ ይህን እስካላደረጋችሁ ድረስ ሰላም የለም፤ አንድ ትልቅ ችግር አለ።

አይይ ጥቁሩን ፈራሁ ማለቱ ብቻ ዋጋ የለውም፡ የጥቁሩን ቅጣት እየፈራችሁ መኖሩን የምታቆሙት ሃቁን ስትቀበሉ ነው።

የነጭ የበላይነት እውን ነው። አገራችን አሜሪካ የነጮች የበላይነት ያላት አገር ናት ይህ ሃቅ ነው፤ ሁሌም እንደዚህ ነበር።

ኃላፊነቱን ወስደን አንድ ነገር እናድርግ ለተቃውሞ ሰልፍ እንውጣ፤ ነጩ የበላይነት ባሕሉን መለወጥ አለበት። አሊያ ሁላችንም አብረን ልንጠፋ ነው እንዲያም በመጥፋት ላይ እንገኛለን

ተቋማቱ፣ ትምህርት ቤቶች፣ ፍርድ ቤቶች፣ ባሕሉ፣ ሜዲያው፣ ታሪክ፣ ስነልቦናው፣ መዝናኛው ሁሉም ነገር የነጩን የበላይነት የሚያንጸባርቁ ናቸው።

ጥቁር ህዝቦች መጥፎዎች ናቸው ማለት አልችልም፤ ሁላችንም እኩል ነን።

እራሳችሁን መከላከል አቁሙ! ፈራጅነቱን አቁሙ! እራሳችሁን ሳታታልሉ እውነታውን ተጋፈጡ!

የእኛ የነጭ ባሕል ዘረኛ ነው። ሁሉም ነጭ ዘረኛ ነው ማለቴ አይደለም ግን ግደሌሽነቱ፣ እርምጃ ላለመውሰድ ዓይን መጨፈን ትልቅ ችግር ነው። ተራመዱ፤ ከግድየለሽነት ውጡ።

አንድ ነገር አድርጉ፣ አንድ ነገር ተናገሩ። አሜሪካን እወዳታለሁ፣ ነጮችን እወዳቸዋለሁ። በዚህም እኮራለሁ አሜሪካን እንመልሳት።

በአሜሪካ እንኩራ በነጭ አሜሪካ ከእንግዲህ ወዲያ አልኮራም እኔ ዘረኛ ነበርኩ፤ በነጭ አሜሪካ ከእንግዲህ ወዲያ አልኮራም።

ለአንዴና ለመጨረሻ ጊዜ ፍርሃታችሁን ተጋፈጡት! ስግብግብነታሁን ተጋፈጡት ይህችን አገር መሆን እንዳለባት እንመልሳት፦ ለሁሉም ሕዝቦች የተሰራች አገር ናትና፤ የነጮች ብቻ አይደለችም።

 በሉ ለአሁኑ ቻው!

Wonder Why Christianity Could Never Mix With Other Faiths?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 13, 2016


Unity. Many people in the world want that, even us Christians. One thing that will never ever happen, though, is the unity between our faith in God, and other people’s faith in their gods. This is one thing that has been misunderstood by many.

An Imagined Union

Many of our brothers and sisters hope that someday, we could be united with other peoples. While that’s a noble dream, it is one that cannot become a total reality. Let me elaborate by giving you three reasons why Christianity could never mix with other faiths.

1. God Himself Said We Must Separate Ourselves from Other Faiths


God, the Creator of all things created, said that we who believe in Him should never mix with other faiths and beliefs. This isn’t some sort of prejudiced command (because God is just and therefore cannot have any prejudice), but a reality that many Christians must realise personally.

Consider What 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 Says:

And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: ‘I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.‘”

Let me clarify something. While it’s true that God wants all men to be saved, He wants all who are saved to come out from their former unsaved identity or way of life, or from having fellowship, or “oneness,” with people of other faiths. That’s just the way it is – “be holy for I am holy” (see 1 Peter 1:16).

2. There’s Only One God

We know that there’s only one God, but people of other faiths don’t know that, and will never acknowledge that unless they get saved by Christ. Because of this, it will be hard, even impossible, to unite with them.

I read a recent report about a Quran that had Christian verses in it, made by a Muslim and a Christian. Honestly, while it is a noble desire for them to let both faiths see each other in a different light, the truth remains that God cannot be friends with other gods. Who are we to think that God will just shake hands with another?

God said in Exodus 20:7, “You must not have any other god but me.”

3. Following Christ Means Following Christ

Jesus Himself said that He came bringing a sword (see Matthew 10:34; Luke 12:51). Christ Himself is the dividing line that separates those who love and follow God from those who don’t. While Christ came to save the whole world, He made it a point that those who will follow Him must deny themselves. This means denying fellowship with peoples of other faiths if it means compromising our belief in Christ.

Separate Yourself

Friends, it’s a noble desire to be able to befriend people from another faith. However, we must never let that desire overpower the fact and truth that we must separate ourselves from ungodly beliefs, thoughts and practices. God is holy, and expects us to follow suit.

Crazy Photos Are Coming Out Of Saudi Arabia After Rain Leaves Capital Flooded

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 17, 2013

You snakes, you children of serpents! How can you escape being condemned to hell?” [Mathew 23:33]

RFire3This sounds shocking to polite ears, but there is indeed a just wrath of God – the one true Christian God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who presides over the destinies of nations. This Almighty Egziabher doesn’t need you cruel children of the devil except for discerning us the nature of good and evil. We have a very patient God, but His patience has a limit! He will speak and strive with man so that he might repent, but not forever. That is why before the terrible Flood in Noah’s day, The righteous God whose anger does not diminish toward those who refuse to repent said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever. His days will be a hundred and twenty years.” [Genesis 6:3]

This past September cruel Islamists set off human bombs in front of the historic All Saints Catholic Church in Pakistan. Six hundred Christian worshipers were present. These people were simply worshiping God peacefully when the diabolic act occurred. 78 people were killed, including 34 women and 7 children. More than 100 were wounded. Such attacks against God’s people brought judgment on all perpetrators and the country that houses them. Three days later, a massive earthquake struck Pakistan killing 328 people and injuring 373 – more than triple the number of dead and injured when Muslims bombed the Church. Wasn’t that a divine statement?!

Now, you soulless Saudis, who treat my people like your hated dogs, your days are numbered – soon, very soon, Our Lord will do this to you: “He will send down fire and flames, and a burning wind; with these will their cup be full.” [Psalm 11:6]

Riyadh, the 5 million strong capital of Saudi Arabia, generally doesn’t receive much rainfall over the year. One source says that, on average, just 0.2 inches of rain fall in November.

It’s perhaps because of this that the city has been unable to handle around two hours of heavy rain today. Residents are in shock, with many Internet users are posting pictures of flooded streets.

They Induce Empathy for The Murderer – Demonizing The Dead

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 18, 2013

Many have noticed that last Sunday, neither justice nor the truth were served when George Zimmerman was found not guilty of killing seventeen year old Trayvon Martin. In fact, this was the latest example of a travesty of justice and a manipulation and bastardization of the truth. Zimmermann was set free, but he ain’t free, he knows what he has done, the terrible crime he committed will haunt him all the time, he is a coward, he doesn’t deserve the name “George”, the George we know was a Martyr, a Saint.

While almost all the medias want us to see the gangsta picture of the murdered teenager, Trayvon Martin, they show the polished, smiling photos of the murderer so that we could justify the murderer by thinking, “a good reason to have a ‘neighborhood watch like Zimmerman”

The above picture was popular among all those who induced empathy for Zimmerman, and its popularity is an example of where we are today. Many people cannot stand to hear about modern racism towards minorities. Any mention of race immediately brings comments about “the race card” or “race baiting.” Their narrative is that the white race is really the race that suffers the most racism in America. And so, they jump on any rumor or alleged evidence which might confirm their belief that Zimmerman is innocent. They probably would never admit to being racist, and perhaps they don’t even believe that they are racist, but their passionate denial that race figured into this tragedy and their willingness to accept any “evidence” to support that presupposition suggests otherwise.

The Living should never judge the dead

BostonBYou see, they judge the dead, make him look like a bad guy, an offender, and demonize him, while setting murderers like Zimmerman free, and rewarding them with guns. Trying to demonize the dead  kid is franknly reprehensible, only cowards do demonize the dead to justify their wrongs

Similarly, another morally reprehensible thing could be observed with the latest controversy concerning the Boston Marathon bomber. The August issue of the music magazine, “Rolling Stones“ features a photo of Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover. The vast majority of people won’t read the article written inside the magazine. So, the magazine is attempting to apply the graphic power by portraying this particular murderer as a “rock star”, an innocent victim of a failed society.

In their twisted minds, “Heartbreaking account” means one thing: poor Jahar is just a victim of outside forces and circumstances, so you should feel sorry for him (like Zimmerman) with your broken heart. What about the heartbreaking stories of his victims, who apparently don’t rate as rock stars by Rolling Stone, as the magazine has not given them this much attention?. Well, it won’t be surprising if they put up a monument for him in downtown Boston, as they were planing to build a mosque at Ground Zero, New York.

Dear Robert Zimmerman, Jr.:

PBoxGiven that bashing Black people seems to be the family pastime, I imagine you don’t care much about what I think about you and your murderous, racist brother. However, considering you have spent the last year of your life spending as much time in front of the camera as much as humanly possible, maybe your megalomania compels you to read whatever appears in your Google Alerts. No matter the option, though, you and all that you represent are a poison that an already soiled media climate doesn’t need and it’s time more people stated such.

Frankly, I knew you weren’t worth even a decimeter of a damn long ago, but you truly proved how awful a person you were when you posted a picture of Trayvon Martin, a shooting victim of your vigilante, faux-Eddie Valiant brother side-by-side with that of the alleged killer of a 13-month-old baby back in March.

Who could forget that caption: “A picture speaks a thousand words. Any questions?”

I have a few. Starting with outside of their complexion and a photo with a raised middle finger, what did those two even have in common? Second question: Why is it that news networks like CNN and HLN continue to give you a platform to spew your falsehoods and thinly-veiled racist rants? Are ratings that important that a supposed news network is willing to allow some bigoted brother of another bigot go on-air and disparage Black people as if we’re nothing?

Bonus round: Can you guess which finger I’d like to wave right in front of you at this very moment?

If that despicable comparison wasn’t awful enough, your smug little self couldn’t resist further rubbing in your brother getting away with murder in a post-verdict interview with CNN.

There, you said, “I want to know what makes people angry enough to attack someone the way that Trayvon Martin did. I want to know, if it is true, and I don’t know that it was true, that Trayvon Martin was looking to procure firearms, was growing marijuana plants, or was making lean, or whatever he was doing. I want to know that every minor, high schooler, that would be reaching out in some way for help—and they may feel it’s by procuring firearms or whatever they may be doing—that they have some kind of help.”

This is the part where you should’ve been checked. Trayvon Martin isn’t the one with the extensive criminal history, your brother is—a fact you routinely ignore.

Isn’t it George Zimmerman who has been accused of domestic violence? Was it not George arrested and charged with “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement officer?” Those were felony charges he escaped after entering an alcohol education program. And then later that year, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancé, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order, alleging domestic violence. A year later, he was charged with speeding. Can’t forget about the woman who accused Georgie of molesting her either.

If there’s any “punk” walking around angry with substance abuse issues and a blatant disregard for authority, it’s George Zimmerman, not the child he murdered. But thanks to people like you, it was Trayvon who went on trial for his own murder, not the killer.

Suffice to say, you can take the following disingenuous question of your brother’s critics, swallow it whole and choke: “I wonder how many people at these rallies calling for his death, calling for his capture dead or alive, I wonder how many of them mentored African American children?”

The same goes for this silly little declaration: I think it’s a time now going forward when we should start to ask really tough questions about why it was so hard for us to conceive of the likelihood that perhaps Trayvon Martin really did attack George this way and ask tough questions about, ‘Are we not willing to accept that because of race?’”

Do you want to know why Black people get angry? Because scum of the Earth like George Zimmerman can walk around with a gun and false sense of superiority, stop an unarmed Black child and begin an altercation with him, shoot him after he starts losing the fight he began and then end up not serving any prison time for it – plus getting the gun back to boot.

How ironic for you to say: “It’s a reality that some people don’t respect this verdict and think that they want to take justice into their own hands.”

The most horrific aspect of it all is that not only can George Zimmerman get away with a racially-charged murder, his simple-minded, equally-prejudiced brother can make a media career out of it.


Rachel Jeantel Gets the Trayvon Martin Treatment

RachelJeantel[Exodus 4:10- ]”Moses said to the Lord,”O Lord, I have never been eloquent,neither in the past nor since you spoke to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.

But, God chose Moses!

God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. [ 1 Corinthians 1:27–29]

Rachel Jeantel can’t read cursive. That’s the main takeaway from the fourth day of the George Zimmerman trial: Jeantel, snappy prosecution witness who was on the phone with her friend Trayvon Martin minutes before he died, cannot read script handwriting. Defense attorney Don West underlined that fact for the benefit of the jury, the general public, and everyone else looking for an excuse to dismiss her testimony.

Given the extent to which Jeantel’s demeanor was covered on television and in news articles, you’d be excused for thinking—as Jezebels Callie Beusman put it—that she was the one on trial. Over the past couple of days, Jeantel has recounted that Martin told her he was being followed by a “creepy-ass cracker” who, it seems, then proceeded to attack him. Pundits, meanwhile, have made snickering observations that have had little to do with the substance of her testimony. They’ve criticized Jeantel’s weight, her attitude, her manner of dress, and her mumbling, inarticulate answers to West’s questions. These observations are generally framed as discussions of her credibility and how she’ll be received by the jury. But they’re also an excuse to point and laugh at a poor, black teenager who comes from an America that we’d rather not acknowledge exists.

The media has consistently treated Jeantel as if she were some sassy alien life-form. The New York Daily News story about yesterday’s proceedings focused on Jeantel-as-sideshow, calling the cursive story an “especially cringe-worthy moment,” and noting that, “[a]t one point, the key prosecution witness blurted out, ‘That’s retarded, Sir’ in response to West’s suggestion that Martin attacked Zimmerman.” On Piers Morgan Tonight, Morgan repeated the phrase “creepy-ass cracker” as if it were some inscrutable bit of baby talk. The day before, panelist Jayne Weintraub disdainfully asserted that “it’s really not about this young woman’s … credibility, because her credibility, it’s a wash whatever her testimony is. Yes, she was a difficult witness. She was impossible.”

If the established media was patronizing, many Internet users were outright cruel.

As Beusman put it at Jezebel, “social media users have heavily criticized Jeantel’s hair, her body, her grammar, her perceived (lack of) intelligence, her diction, and her attitude.” Hurdler Lolo Jones tweeted, “Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I’m going to sell it as Madea goes to court.” Somebody made another movie reference “this girl Rachel Jeantel looks like precious. Right? Where was her KFC?” And lest you think this is all coming from white people, much of “black Twitter” spent yesterday mocking Jeantel and her “ghetto” image. As another Twitter user wrote: “Its no excuse to use age for Rachel Jeantel’s demeanor. Her attitude & grammar is playing right into stereotypes about black women.”

The implication of all the social media chatter and news coverage is clear: Rachel Jeantel was out of place in a courtroom. The flipside of that implication is clear, too: Rachel Jeantel should go back to the ghetto where she belongs. In fact, that’s the whole point of the Trayvon Martin case, which has become a referendum on how comfort and privilege deal with the unfamiliar. Before Martin died, he was dehumanized. No matter whose story you believe, it’s clear that George Zimmerman looked at a young black kid walking through a gated community and decided that he wasn’t supposed to be there. He responded by following him, approaching him, and … it’s up to you to decide what you think happened next.

The dehumanization of Rachel Jeantel—the laughter, the disbelief—is rooted in the same attitude that causes people to treat unarmed black kids with suspicion, to follow them around subdivisions for no good reason. I rarely agree with Nancy Grace, but yesterday on HLN she made a decent point. “Oh, everybody can laugh all they want to. She can’t read cursive. Or that she has nicknames she goes by that some people may laugh at; this one is ‘Diamond Eugene.’ You know what? Laugh all you want to. Nobody ever said that a murder trial was a tea party, where everybody had perfect manners and spoke perfectly. That’s not what this is about.”

And she’s right. A lot of the people in our jails and prisons come from poor black neighborhoods, and the witnesses in their trials are often made uncomfortable by courtrooms and judges and aggressive defense attorneys. Dismissing them and what they have to say because of their grammar and demeanor says more about us than it does about them. Rachel Jeantel can’t understand cursive. We can’t understand Rachel Jeantel. Which is worse?

Where Are Peace & Love?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 1, 2009


Lately, everyone is talking  emotionally about Peace, Human Rights, Justice and Democracy, yet, everyone does seem to work against these principles. We have ‘Human Rights’ in a world where humans have less and less rights. We have ‘peace’ in a world that is not peaceful. We have justice in a world that is not just. We even do have anti-racism conferences where the participants are racists.

Everyone can see that the devil is the one who runs the government in so many countries. That’s why so much hatred and wars are present everywhere. How can there be any peace, while The Individual’s inwardness ain’t peaceful?! We see nations at war who also see themselves, ultimately, as part of a “peace process.” They depict war as a temporary interlude to the peace that they feel they are working toward in the only way available to them. Yet, since peace is usually followed by more war, “peace dialogs or processes” inevitably become “war processes. First we build houses, roads and cities, and then we fight against each other and destroy everything we have built – and then we call a cease-fire and bring together a huge amount of money to rebuild what we’ve just destroyed. This obviously looks a child’s game. I really don’t know, whether war is an interlude during peace or peace is an interlude during war.

It has been said that all nations are either preparing for war, at war or recovering from war. This is partly because men often think they must go to war in search of peace. The outcome of war usually involves a temporary truce, but always fails to yield permanent peace. This is because men cannot, and will never, find the way to peace on their own. They have no chance to solve the problem of achieving world peace. Governments will continue promoting war and genocide over and over again, till The Kingdom of God come.

We humans need to care for each other if we would like to minimize the damages that we inflict on the well-being of our own societies. If we care for each other, unite and do things like God intended us to be, living in love, and peace, and it did please God, there will be no more sufferings and diseases — everyone will be healed. Without God man will destroy everything. We can see this happening now, unless we choose to keep our eyes closed.

The most powerful weapon to conquer the evil Devil is humility. For as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it.

Our justest fathers, our warm-hearted mothers always suggest a posture of humility, self-sacrifice , love and tolerance.
