ተዓምር በክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ቱርክ | ሚንስትሩ ወደቁ | የሉሲፈር ጨረር?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 28, 2021

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

አህመድ + ☆ ጂብሪል = ሉሲፈር

የቱርክ ሉሲፈራዊ ባንዲራ + ☆ የቡርኪና ፋሶ ሉሲፈራዊ ባንዲራ = ሉሲፈር

ይህን ከስምንት ዓመታት በፊት የታየ ክስተት ዛሬ በቅዱስ ኡራኤል ዕለት ማየቴ ራሱ ሌላ ትልቅ ተዓምር ነው። ጉግል የራሱ አልጎሪዝም ይኖረዋል፤ የእግዚአብሔር ቅዱሳን ደግሞ የራሳቸው እጅግ በጣም የተራቀቀ አልጎሪዝምአላቸው። ድንቅ ነው!

ጠቅላይ ሚንስትር መለስ ዜናዊ እና የጋናው ፕሬዚደንት ከሉሲፈራዊው ባራክ ሁሴን ኦባማ ጋር በተገናኙ ማግስት አርፈው ነበር። ቪዲዮው ላይ የሚታዩት የቡርኪና ፋሶው የውጭ ጉዳይ ሚስትር ጂብሪል ባሶሌ ደግሞ ከክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ቱርክ የወቅቱ የውጭ ጉዳይ ሚንስት አህመድ ዳቩቶግሉ ጋር ጋዜጣዊ መግለጫ ሲሰጡ የቡርኪና ፋሶ የውጭ ጉዳይ ሚኒስትር በቱርክ በጋራ ጋዜጣዊ መግለጫ በሚሰጡበት ወቅት ራሳቸውን ስተው ሲወድቁ ይታያሉ።

የውጭ ጉዳይ ሚንስትሩ ልክ ሲወድቁ ብልጭ ብለው የታዩኝ የቱርክ እና ቡርኪና ፋሶ ባንዲራዎች ላይ ያለው የሉሲፈር ባለ አምስት ፈርጥ ኮከብ ነው። ጂብሪል እና አህመድ በሉሲፈር ኮከብ ታጅበዋል፤ ዋው!!!

ሙስሊሞች ለአምላካቸው ዋቄዮአላህ በሚሠሩት መስጊድ “ሚናራ” በሚባለው የምሰሶውና በሙአዚኑ አዛን ጋኔን መጥሪያው ክፍል ላይ የተገለጸው የፈጣሪያቸውን ሉሲፈርን መልክና ምሳሌ (ሎጎ)ይህን ሙስሊሞች ቅዱስ ጳውሎስን እንዲጠሉ ያደረጋቸውን እውነት ለማሳየነት ላቅርብ። ይህ ትልቅ መንፈሳዊ ምስጢር ነው። የእስልምናው እምነት የተዘጋጀው በስጋ ሕግና ሥርዓት መሆኑን ከግንዛቤ በመውሰድ፤ በቪዲዮው በምናየው የሉሲፈር በባለ አምስቱ ፈርጥ ኮከበ መልክና ምሳሌ በኩል የተገለጠው የፈጣሪያቸው ሉሲፈር ስምና ክብር (የስጋ ማንነትና ምንነት)ነው። ኮከቧ ምሳሌነቷ ለአምስቱ የስጋ የስሜት ሕዋሳት ነውና። ለስጋ ምሳሌ ናት። በድጋሚ፤ ቅዱስ ጳውሎስ በዓረብ ምድር ሕግና ሥርዓት በኩል “ስጋ!” በማለት የገለጸው አንድም የእስልምናውን ሕግና ሥርዓት ነው። የስጋ ሕግና ሥርዓት ደግሞ በመንፈስ ሕግና ሥርዓት ሞት በኩል የሚገለጥ የሞትና የባርነት ማንነትና ምንነት ወይም ስምና ክብር ነው። ይህም አዳም አትብላ የተባለውን ዕፀ በለስ በልቶ ለሕይወትና ለነጻነት የተሰጠውን ኪዳን (ሕግ) በሻረና በመንፈሱ በሞተ ጊዜ የተገለጠው ኃይማኖት ወይም የመንግስት ሕግና ሥርዓት ነው።

በሌላ በኩል ሰማያዊቷ ኢየሩሳሌም የተዘጋጀችበት የምድር አፈር ሕግ ትክክለኛዋ ኃይማኖት ክርስትና ናት። “ሰማያዊ” የተባለችው ኢየሩሳሌም ደግሞ ዛሬ ሉሲፈር በትግራይ በወረወራት ኮከብ አማካኝነት ሊያጠፋት በመታገል ላይ ያለችው የተቀደሰችው ምድር አክሱማዊቷ ኢትዮጵያ ናት። በዚህም መረዳት የተቀደሰችው ምድር ኢትዮጵያ የተዘጋጀችበት የምድር አፈር ሕግ (መንግስት)፤ ከእስላማዊው የዓረቢያው ምድር በተጻራሪ፤ ክርስትና የተባለው። ቅዱስ ጳውሎስ ይህን ይህን የምድር አፈር ሕግ በይስሐቅ ማንነትና ምንነት “መንፈስ” በማለት ይገልጸዋል። በዚህም ክርስትና የመንፈስ ሕግ መሆኑን ይመሰክራል። የስጋ ሕግ ማለት የሞትና ባርነት ሕግ ማለት ነው። የመንፈስ ሕግ ማለት ግን የሕይወትና የነጻነት ሕግ ማለት ነው። ቅዱስ ጳውሎስ፤ “አንዲት ኃይማኖት” በማለት የጠራትም ይህችን የመንፈስ ስምና ክብር ነው። ይህችም ደግሞ ፍቅር የተባለችው የተፈጥሮ ሕግ ናት። የክርስትናው ሕግና ሥርዓት የመንፈስ ሕግ መሆኑን የሚመሰክርልን ደግሞ የእግዚአብሔር መንግስት ምሳሌ የሆነው የዳዊት ኮከብ ይሆናል። የዳዊት ኮከብ ስድስት ፈርጥ ያለው የኮከቡ መልክና ምሳሌ ስለ መንፈስ አካል የሚናገር ሕግ ነበርና።

በኢትዮጵያ ሰንደቅ ላይ ስላረፈው የሉሲፈር ኮከብ ምናልባት ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ የማንቂያ ደወል በጦማሬ አማካኝነት የደወልኩት እኔ ነበርኩ፤ ዛሬም በተለይ “ዛሬም!” የምኒልክ ብሔር ብሔረሰብ ተረት ተረት ርዕዮተ ዓለም አራማጅ የሆኑት የሕወሓት ክንፍ “የትግራይ ነው” ብሎ የሚጠቀምበትን ባንዲራ ጽዮናውያን እንዲያወግዙት እና እንዲያስወግዱት በምትኩም ለጽዮናዊቷ ትግራይ ኢትዮጵያ እነ አፄ ኢዛና፣ እነ ደቂቅ እስጢፋኖስ፣ እነ አፄ ዮሐንስ የተሰጧትን ቀይ፣ ቢጫ፣ አረንጓዴ ሰንደቅ በኩራት እንዲያውለበልቡ ከማሳወቅ ወደኋላ አልልም። የሉሲፈር አምስት ፈርጥ ኮከብ ያረፈበት ባለ ሁለት ቀለሙ ሰንደቅ የጽዮናውያን፣ የአክሱማውያን ወይም የትራዋይ ኢትዮጵያውያን እንዳልሆነ ፻/100% እርግጠኛ ነኝ። ለመሆኑ፤ “ይህ ሃምሳ ዓመት የማይሞላው ባንዲራ ከየት/ከማን ተገኘ? መልዕክቱስ ምንድን ነው?” በማለት የሚጠይቅ ወግን ለምን ጠፋ? ለትግራይ ሕዝብ ላለፉት ሃምሳ ዓመታት ሰቆቃ እና ስቃይን ከማምጣቱ እና ሉሲፈር ጠላትን ከማስደሰቱ በቀር ምን ያመጣለት ነገር አለ? ምንም! ዛሬ ኤርትራውያን የምንላቸው ጽዮናውያን ገና ሬፈረንደም ሲያካሂዱ ገና ወጣት እያለሁ “ተው!ብትገነጠሉ እንኳን ሰሜን ኢትዮጵያ የሚለውን ስም እና የጽዮንን ባንዲራ ያዙ!” ስላቸው ይሳለቁብኝ እንደነበር፤ እንዲያውም ሬፈረንደም ከማድረጊያው አዳራሽ እንድወጣ (ለዩኒቨርሲቲዬ ረፖርት ለማቅረብ ነበር ተልኬ የገባሁት) አስታውሳለሁ። ዛሬ ወገኖቻችን የያኔውን አሁን ከገጠማቸው ፈተና እና መዘዝ ጋር እያስታወሱ በመጸጸት የሚደውሉልኝ ኤርትራውያን ብዙ ናቸው። የጽዮናውያን ጽናት፣ ጥንካሬ፣ ብርታት እና ድል የእግዚአብሔር ድል ነው፤ በጽዮን ማርያም፣ በቅዱሳኑ እና በጽላተ ሙሴ በኩል ብቻ የተገኘ ድል ነው። ጠላት ይህን በደንብ ስለሚያውቅ ነው የሕይወት ዛፍ የሆነችውን ኢትዮጵያን ለማፈራረስ ሥሯን መንቀል አስፈላጊ እንደሆነ ስላወቁት ላለፉት ፻፴/130 ዓመታት ቆፍረው ቆፍረው አሁን የምናየውን ዓይን ያወጣ የጭፍጨፋ ግፍ በመስራት ላይ ያሉት። የትግራይ ሠራዊት የጽዮን ሠራዊት ነው፤ ስለዚህ አረበኞቹ የጽዮንን ጠላቶች እስከ ሞያሌ ድረስ ሄደው የማሳደድ ግዴታ አለባቸው፤ በዚህም ድጋፌ ፻/100% ነው፤ ጽዮናውያን አዲስ አበባ ድረስ ሄደው ግራኝን እና ጭፍሮቹን የመያዝ ግዴታ አለባቸው፤ እንዲያውም ዘግይተዋል። ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ አዲስ አበባን ለቅቆ በመውጣትና የትግራይን አየር አቋርጦ ወደ አስመራ እና ቱርክ መብረር እንዳይችል መደረግ ነበረበት፤ የሚበርርም ከሆነ አውሮፕላኑን በትግራይ አየር ላይ መትተው መጣል ነበረባቸው። ለመሆኑ በየትኛው አየር መንገድ ነው ወደ አስመራ እና ቱርክ የበረረው? ከይተስ ተነስቶ? ይህን በጣም ማወቅ እፈልጋለሁ።

💭 ለማንኛውም በትግራይ ላይ ልክ የዘር ማጥፋት ዘመቻው ሲጀምር የሚከተለውን ጽሑፍ በማቅረብ ለማስጠንቀቅ ሞክሬ ነበር፤

👉 ለመሆኑ ይህ ጦርነት ማንን ነው “የሚጠቅመው”?

፩ኛ. የምዕራቡን ኤዶማውያንን እና የምስራቁን እስማኤላውያንን(ካቶሊክ፣ ፕሮቴስታንት፣ እስላም፣ ኢአማኒ፣ ግብረሰዶም)

ምክኒያቱም፦ ሁለቱም ኢትዮጵያን፣ ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን አጥፍተው የራሳቸውን ዲያብሎሳዊ ርዕዮተ ዓለማት ማስፋፋትና በኢትዮጵያ የሚገኘውን የሕይወት ዛፍም ለሳጥናኤል ስም፣ ክብርና ዝና ሲሉ መውረስ ይሻሉና ነው።

፪ኛ. ዋቀፌታን/ኦሮሙማን

ምክኒያቱ፦ ከኤዶማውያኑ እና እስማኤላውያኑ ጋር በማበር ኢትዮጵያን፣ ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን አጥፍተው የራሳቸውን ርዕዮተ ዓለማት ማስፋፋት ይሻሉና ነው። የፕሮቴስታንቲዝም አባት ማርቲን ሉተር ወደ ጀርመንኛ በተረጎመው መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ ኢትዮጵያን‘ ‘ኩሽብሎ ነው የጻፋት። ይህ ቀላል ነገር እንዳይመስለን። እ..አ ከ 1837 እስከ 1843 .ም ባለው ጊዜ ፕሮቴስታንቱ ጀርመናዊ ዮኻን ክራፕፍ ኦሮሚያ የተባለውን ግዛት ለመመሥረት የተነሳሳው ክርስትናን ለማስፋፋት ሳይሆን፡ እንደ አንድ ፕሮቴስታንት የኢትዮጵያ ቀጥተኛ ተዋሕዶ ቤተክርስቲያንን ለመዋጋት ነው። ለዚህም በወራሪነት ባሕርይ ከጀርመኖች ጋር ይስማማሉ በሚል ሃሳብ “ጋላ” ተብለው ሲጠሩ የነበሩትን ጎሳዎች ለማደራጀት በመነሳሳት በ ኢትዮጵያፋንታ ኩሽየሚለው ትርጉም ያለበትን መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ ይዞ ወደ ምስራቅ አፍሪቃ/ኢትዮጵያ ተጓዝ፤ በዚህም የኦሮሙማ እንቅስቃሴን ጀመረው። ተልዕኮው ፀረኢትዮጵያ፣ ፀረተዋሕዶ እና የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ተልዕኮ መሆኑን ዛሬ እያየነው ነው። ዋናው ዲያብሎሳዊ ዓላማቸው፤ ኢትዮጵያን አፍርሰው ኢትዮጵያ እና ኢትዮጵያዊነትንም በተለይ ከአማራና ትግሬ በመንጠቅ “መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ ውስጥ የተጠቀሰችው ኩሽ እኛ ነን” የሚለው ነው።

ሌባው ሊሰርቅና ሊያርድ ሊያጠፋም እንጂ ስለ ሌላ አይመጣም”[የዮሐንስ ወንጌል ምዕራፍ ፲፥፲]

፫ኛ. የአማራ ብሔርተኝነትን

ምክኒያቱ፦ ከኦሮሙማዎች፣ ከኤዶማውያኑ እና እስማኤላውያኑ ጋር በማበር ትግሬዎችንና ትግርኛን አጥፍተው ኢትዮጵያን፣ ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን፣ ግዕዝን፣ ሰንደቁን፣ አክሱም ጽዮንን፣ ቅዱስ ያሬድና አቡነ አረጋዊን ከተቻለም መላው ትግራይንና ኤርትራን ወርሰው ለራሳቸው ብቻ ለማድረግ ይሻሉና ነው። በነገራችን ላይ፤ ኦሮሞዎች በኬኛ ቅዠታቸው ሙጭጭ ያሉበትንና “ፊንፊኔ/ ፊልፊሌ” የሚለውን ስያሜ ለአዲስ አበባ ፍልወሃ ክፍለ ከተማ እቴጌ ጣይቱ እንደሰጡት፤ “አማራ” የተባለውን የአማራ ከንቱ ብሔርተኞች ክልልን መጠሪያ ስም የሰጡት ደግሞትግሬው/ሚ መለስ ዜናዊ ነበሩ። የሕይወት ምፀት!

፬ኛ. የትግሬ ብሔርተኝነትን

ምክኒያቱ፦ ኢአማንያኑ ሻእቢያ እና ህዋሀት ቡድኖች ከኦሮሙማዎች፣ ከኤዶማውያኑ እና እስማኤላውያኑ ጋር በማበር ኢትዮጵያን፣ ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን፣ ቅዱስ ያሬድን፣ አቡነ አረጋዊን፣አባ ዓቢየ እግዚእን፣ነገሥታቱን ኢዛናን፣ ዮሐንስን፣ ሰንደቁን፣ ግዕዝን፣ አክሱምን አጥፍተው በሃምሳ ዓመታት ውስጥ በተገኘ ጣዖታዊ ማንነት “ኢአማኒ የትግራይ ሶሻሊምዝብልጽግና” ርዕዮተ ዓለምን በመከተልና የሉሲፈር ኮከብ ያረፈበትን የቻይና ባንዲራም በማውለብለብ ከኤርትራ ጋር ለብቻቸው መኖር ይሻሉና ነው። በትግራይ እየተካሄደ ያለው ጦርነት የግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ እና የስብሃት ነጋ ጦርነት ነው። መንግስቱን ለኦሮሙማዎች እንዳስረከቡት፣ ቤተ ክህነትንም ለእነ ኤሬቻ በላይ በማስረክብ ላይ ያሉ ይመስላሉ። በትግራይ ላይ የተከፈተውን ጦርነት የደገፉበት አንዱ ምክኒያትም ይህ ሊሆን ይችላል፤ ዋናው ፍላጎታቸው ግን የትግርኛ ተናጋሪ ተዋሕዶ ኢትዮጵያውያንን ልብ በመስበርና ተስፋ በማስቆረጥ፡ ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን እና ኢትዮጵያን እንዲተው ማድረግ ነው። በነገራችን ላይ፤ ዛሬ የትግራይ ከንቱ “ትግራይ! ትግራይ!” ብሔርተኞች ለሚጮሁለት ክፍለሃገር “ትግራይ” የሚለውን መጠሪያ የሰጡት ድንቁ አማራኢትዮጵያዊ ንጉሥ አፄ አምደ ጽዮን ናቸው። የሕይወት ምፀት!

ሉሲፈራውያኑ እና ቆሻሻው ወኪላቸው አብዮት አህመድ አሊ ትግራይን ከኢትዮጵያ ገንጥለው የስጋ ማንነትና ምንነት ባላቸው ጠላቶቿ የምትመራዋን የዛሬዋን ኢትዮጵያን አፈራርሰው ከሞያሌ እስከ መተከልና ጎንደር ያለውን ግዛት ለኦሮሞዎች ለማስረከብ ተግተው በመሥራት ላይ ናቸው። አማራው የስጋ ማንነትና ምንነት ካላቸው ኦሮሞዎቹ ጎን ተሰልፎ የመንፈስ ማንነትና ምንነት ባላቸው ትግሬ ወንድሞቹ ላይ በመቶ ዓመት ውስጥ ለሦስተኛ ጊዜ ጦርነት በማወጁ አብቅቶለታል! አክሱም ጽዮንን ክዷልና የሆነ ተዓምር ካልመጣ በቀር ምንም ተስፋ የለውም፤ በቅርቡ ሃገር አልባ ነው የሚሆነው። እነ ግራኝ እየሠሩ ያሉት ትግርኛ ተናጋሪ ኢትዮጵያውያን ከኢትዮጵያዊነታቸው፣ ከአረንጓዴ፣ ቢጫና ቀይ ሰንደቃቸው እና ከተዋሕዶ ክርስትናቸው እንዲላቀቁ ብሎም አእምሯቸውን ተቆጣጥረው፣ መንፈሳቸውን አድክመውና ሞራላቸውን ሰብረው ልክ እንደ “ኤርትራውያን” ለአውሮፓውያን አረጋውያን የኩላሊትና መቅኒ መለዋወጫ እንዲሆኑ ማድረግ ነው። ሰሞኑን “አማራ” የተባለው ክልል ባንዲራውን ለመቀየር መወሰኑ ከዚህ ሤራ ጋር የተያያዘ ነው። ከኦሮሞዎቹ ከእነ አብዮት አህመድ ጋር ተናበው በመስራት ላይ ያሉት ሀወሃቶች የዚህ ዲያብሎሳዊ ሤራ አካል ቢሆኑ አይገርመንም። ዋ! ! !

በዓለማችን ያሉ ብዙ ሕዝቦች በተቻለ መጠን በሃይማኖት፣ በቋንቋ፣ በባህልና በመልክ የሚመስሏቸውንና የሚቀርቧቸውን ሕዝቦች እየፈለጉ ማስጠጋትና መውደድ በጀመሩበት በዚህ ዘመን ትንሿ ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ያሉ ብሔሮች ግን ጥላቻን አንግሦ አንዱ ከሌላው የሚለይበትንና የሚረቅበትን፣ አንዱ ሌላውን የሚጠላበትንና የሚያርቅበትን ሰበባ ሰበብ እየፈላለገ እርስበርስ መባላቱንና ውድቀቱን መርጧል። ሞቃዲሾን አልፎ ኪጋሊንና ካምፓላን፣ ቀይ ባሕርን ተሻግሮ ኤደንና ሙስካትን “ የኛ ነበሩ! የኛ ይሆናሉ!” በሚል ወኔ ታላቅነትንና አርቆ አሳቢነትን እንደ ቀደሙት አያቶቹ ይዞ “ኢትዮጵያ እርስቴ” በማለት ፈንታ እራሱን አጥብቦና በጣም አውርዶ በወልቃይትና ራያ ሚጢጢ“እርስቶች” ላንቅው እስኪበጠስ ይነታረካል። ዛሬማ ሰው ከ“አዲስ አበባ የማን ናት?” አሰልቺና አላስፈላጊ ንትርክ ወርዶ ጉልበቱንና ጊዜውን በመስቀል አደባባይና ጃን ሜዳ ላይ ብቻ እንዲያጠፋ ተደርጓል። ጃን ሜዳን እና መስቀል አደባባይን ያረከሱትን ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድን እና ታከል ዑማን አድኖ እንደመድፋት፤ “ጮኸን ጮኸን ጃን ሜዳ ተፈቀደልን!” ይልና ሆያሆየን ጨፍሮ ለቀጣዩ እንቅልፉ ወደ አልጋው ይመለሳል። በከሃዲዎቹ የሉሲፈራውያኑ ባሪያ ልሂቃኖቹ አዕምሮው እስኪጠብብ ድረስ መታጠቡ ከዚህ የበለጠ ማስረጃ የለም።

የሕዝቡን ስነልቦና በልተውታል፤ ስለዚህ “አዲስ አበባ ኬኝ” ይሉና መስቀል አደባባይን እና ጃን ሜዳን በመቆፈር የተዋሕዷውያኑን ሃሳብ በነዚህ ትንንሽ ቦታዎች ላይ ብቻ እንዲቀር ያስሩታል፣ ወደ ወልቃይት፣ ራያና ሁመራ ልጆቹን እየላከ ትግሬዎች ወገኖቹን እንዲገድል፣ የራሱንም ደም እንዲያፈስ፣ የአክቲቪስቱ ሃሳብም በእነዚህ ትንንሽ ቦታዎች ብቻ ተወስኖና ታስሮ እንዲቀር፣ የቀረውም እንዲኮላሽና ሰፊዋን ኢትዮጵያን ከጠላቶቿ ነፃ ለማውጣት አቅም እንዳይኖረው፤ ብዙም እንዳይጠይቅ፣ በጥቃቅን ነገሮች ላይ ብቻ ጊዜና ጉልበቱን እያባከነ ለባርነት እንዲዘጋጅ አድርገውታል። ትልቅ ቅሌት! ወዮላችሁ!

💭 A year after Ethiopian PM Meles Zenawi and Patriarch Paulos passed away, on May 9, 2013

👉 Burkina Faso’s Foreign Minister Has Fainted During አ Joint Press Conference in Turkey.

A year later, 29 August 2014, Ahmet resigned as Foreign Minister and became Prime Minster of Turkey.

Djibrill Bassole, the foreign minister of the Colorado-sized West African nation of Burkina Faso, has joined the inauspicious ranks of people to faint on live television.

Bassole was holding a joint press conference in the Turkish capital of Ankara with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu when, in the middle of a question from a reporter, it became clear that something was wrong. He grips the platform, grimaces and begins to sway slightly. Bassole, obviously concerned, leans over to Davutoglu and says something.

The Turkish foreign minister looks immediately alarmed but, perhaps wary of embarrassing his official guest, extends an arm without actually grabbing Bassole. Then there’s a whooshing sound in the audio as Bassole, collapsing, brushes against his microphone and takes the podium down with him.

#TigrayGenocide | Ethiopian Teenagers Become Pawns in Propaganda War

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 20, 2021

The fog of war is a term usually used to describe confusion on the battlefield, but when it comes to Ethiopia, it could just as easily be applied to the bitterly fought information war surrounding the escalating conflict between Tigrayan rebels and government forces.

When the BBC was recently offered an interview with teenagers allegedly caught fighting for the rebels, we cautiously accepted.

“I was playing football with friends when I was forcefully recruited by Tigrayan fighters to join their ranks,” one 17-year-old told us, on the phone from Afar, a state which borders Tigray.

The conflict began in Tigray in northern Ethiopia in November, but has since spread to the regions of Afar and Amhara, where the TPLF rebels recently captured Lalibela, a town famous for its rock-hewn churches.

“I was taken by force to the war front,” said another teenager, who told us he was in Year 10 at school in Tigray. “My family couldn’t say anything because they feared for their life.”

A 19-year-old woman said: “We didn’t get any military training. They took us to Afar. They threatened to kill our family if we didn’t join the fight.”

The teenagers told us that around 50 adolescent boys and girls were rounded up near Tigray’s capital Mekelle and forced to fight, before being captured by Afar’s regional forces, who are allied to the federal government.

The first sign something wasn’t right was when the Afar authorities, who offered us the interviews, insisted we conduct them in Amharic – Ethiopia’s lingua franca – and not their native language, Tigrinya.

Then, when we listened back carefully to the recordings, our suspicions were confirmed – at times, we could hear the regional authority spokesman telling the teenagers what to say.

Similar interviews were broadcast on local Ethiopian television channels, with teenagers paraded slowly past the cameras looking like bored senior high school students, some with injuries apparently incurred in the fighting.

Catalogue of horrors’

The Tigray conflict began after months of feuding between Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), once the dominant party in the federal government, over the prime minister’s reform programme.

Troops from Eritrea also entered the conflict on the side of Mr Abiy.

The prime minister accuses the TPLF of becoming a terrorist organisation, while it insists that it is the legitimate government in its home region of Tigray.

The Ethiopian government has been accusing the Tigrayan fighters of using child soldiers ever since they recaptured Mekelle in June, eight months after government troops took control of it.

The New York Times published a story on this key turning-point in the war including photos of Tigrayan fighters, some of whom appeared to be underage.

The paper described them as “highly motivated young recruits” inspired by the “catalogue of horrors that has defined the war – massacres, ethnic cleansing and extensive sexual violence”.

Since then, Prime Minister Abiy and his army of social media supporters have accused the Tigrayan rebels of forcibly recruiting child soldiers, doping them with drugs, and pushing them to the front lines.

TPLF spokesman Getachew Reda denied that teenagers were forced to join the group’s ranks.

“If there is a problem with regard to teenagers – 17, 18, 19-year-olds, although 18 is the legal age to join the army – these are children whose parents have been subjected to untold suffering by the Eritreans, by Abiy’s forces, by Amharic expansionists,” he told the BBC.

“We don’t have to force people. We have hundreds of thousands lining up to fight.”

Government officials and rights groups have also accused Tigrayan fighters of committing atrocities, including killing hundreds of people from the Amhara ethnic group in western Tigray at the start of the conflict.

Amhara militias have taken control of parts of western Tigray

Earlier this month, a heavy artillery attack was reported on a health centre in Afar.

Social media was soon ablaze with claims that more than 100 people had been killed by the Tigrayan fighters and the hashtag #AfarMassacre quickly began trending.

The BBC spoke to a local hospital doctor, who said 12 people brought there had died from their injuries, but no-one could give us an official death toll at the scene.

The rebels denied the attack and said they’d welcome an investigation.

Murky war

Claims and counter-claims about every twist in the war are traded all day long on Twitter and Facebook – from the government, the TPLF, and their respective armies of supporters in Ethiopia and the diaspora.

With phone and internet lines down across Tigray for nearly two months now, obtaining information from the region has been almost impossible.

The federal government says communication lines won’t be restored until the rebels accept a ceasefire.

The Tigrayan fighters say they won’t accept a ceasefire until the blockade is lifted and all enemy forces leave the region.

“The federal government is intent on controlling information and the Tigrayan leaders are by no means averse to using propaganda,” says Will Davison, senior Ethiopia analyst at the International Crisis Group think-tank.

“In addition, Ethiopia’s media and civil society are relatively weak when it comes to exposing who is doing what. So there is a cocktail of factors contributing to the murkiness of this war.”

A soldier of Tigray Defence Force (TDF) poses as he walks towards another field at Tigray Martyr’s Memorial Monument Center in Mekele, the capital of Tigray region, Ethiopia, on June 30, 2021

The delivery of aid to Tigray – where experts say hundreds of thousands of people are facing catastrophic levels of hunger – has been another key information battleground.

When the Tekeze Bridge was blown up on 1 July, eliminating a key aid route into the region and one of the few ways of reaching western Tigray, the federal government blamed the TPLF.

But Mr Davison says that argument doesn’t add up.

“Tigrayan forces were on the offensive after the federal retreat, they wanted to reclaim western Tigray and regain access to aid, trade and vital services. Why would they destroy a critical river crossing?” he asks.

“Amhara and federal forces, however, were trying to cut off Tigray after retreating, and they wanted to hold on to western Tigray, so they had every reason to destroy the bridge.”

Thousands of people have been killed since the war began, and millions more have been displaced. Both sides have been accused of human rights abuses.

Following the recent TPLF gains, Mr Abiy called for “all capable Ethiopians of age” to join the fight against the rebels.

Political dialogue appears to be a long way off. The information wars show no sign of dialling down either.

Voice of America is Accused of Ignoring Government Atrocities in Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 21, 2021

💭 PROPAGANDA MACHINE

JASON PATINKIN SPENT the better part of a decade as a freelance reporter, covering conflicts, extremism, and counterinsurgency in East Africa for major news outlets including the Washington Post, Reuters, and the Associated Press. He won commendations for relentless reporting under a repressive regime in South Sudan and broke stories about war crimes that provoked global outrage.

But as Patinkin watched a brutal civil war unfold in Ethiopia this winter and spring, the coverage by his most recent employer, the U.S. government-funded broadcaster Voice of America, shocked and unnerved him. Troops and paramilitaries loyal to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed were accused of killing and expelling civilians and committing gang rape, but VOA’s coverage largely favored the government, in Patinkin’s view, while ignoring its potential war crimes.

For months, Patinkin complained to senior editors about bias in the news outlet’s Ethiopia coverage. In his resignation email last month, he called out “VOA’s pro-Abiy propaganda effort,” its failure to issue corrections for “false and biased reporting,” and its airing of “pro-government propaganda while ignoring atrocities blamed on pro-government forces.” Twelve other current and former VOA service chiefs, reporters, and staffers, as well as outside experts, described violations of basic journalistic standards in VOA’s coverage of Ethiopia stretching back decades. Ethnic factions, especially in VOA’s Amharic language section, have used the news agency to push partisan agendas and settle scores, current and former VOA staff, including two former heads of the agency’s Horn of Africa service, told The Intercept.

“Since I was hired full-time at VOA about a year and a half ago, I’ve seen many incidents and decisions here that caused me great concern as a journalist,” Patinkin wrote in his April 30 resignation email, which was seen by The Intercept. “But VOA’s continued tolerance of a wartime propaganda effort is too much. I cannot in good conscience remain associated with this organization.”

Founded in 1942 with a mandate to serve as a “reliable and authoritative source of news,” Voice of America’s digital, television, and radio platforms provide news in more than 45 languages to an estimated weekly audience of more than 278 million people. With an annual budget of $252 million, the broadcaster says it is committed to “telling audiences the truth.”

The agency’s Horn of Africa service, especially VOA Amharic — which broadcasts in the language of the ethnic Amhara leaders and militias that Abiy and his government depend on — has failed to live up to that mission, the current and former VOA staffers said. “The Amharic service reaches Abiy’s political base. If the Amharic service were impartial, if it were reporting the atrocities, it would be so important,” one Africa Division reporter told The Intercept. “Instead, the American taxpayer is paying for propaganda.”

“This is a war, maybe a genocide, in Ethiopia,” the reporter said. “We have access to a lot of information — on the ground — that could be reported, but we’re hampered at every turn. It’s a matter of life or death. That’s no exaggeration whatsoever.”

We have access to a lot of information — on the ground — that could be reported, but we’re hampered at every turn. It’s a matter of life or death. That’s no exaggeration whatsoever.”

VOA declined to answer detailed questions from The Intercept and did not respond to requests to interview senior staff named in this article. “The Voice of America expects all its journalists to adhere to the principles of producing accurate, balanced and comprehensive reporting with journalistic integrity free of political interference on all broadcasting platforms and languages,” said Anna K. Morris, a Voice of America spokesperson. “Nearly 12 million people tune in to the [VOA Horn of Africa Service’s] broadcasts every week because of its impactful reporting aiming for the highest journalistic standards.”

But VOA staffers say that since Abiy dispatched troops to Ethiopia’s Tigray region last November to crush what he called a mutiny, the news agency’s longtime journalistic failings have become even more pronounced. “I never thought that I would experience this in the United States of America,” that same Africa Division reporter said. “We come from countries where we’ve never really had press freedom. To experience this in the U.S. is shocking.”

That is precisely why Patinkin felt compelled to resign after repeated complaints to his bosses, he told The Intercept.

“It’s appalling that VOA has been used to advance wartime propaganda. What VOA is doing, particularly the Horn of Africa service, is a complete abdication of the sacred duty that we have as journalists,” Patinkin said. “There may be a genocide going on in Tigray right now, so as a journalist, not to mention as a Jew — whose people have experienced genocide — there is no way that I’m going to be a part of that.”

THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF SPECULATION—and no small amount of hysteria—about what President Trump may do with Voice of America and its parent federal agency, the Broadcasting Board of Governors. Reports in Politico and The Washington Post implied a takeover plot is afoot for Trump to mold VOA to his own purposes, as if POTUS has no other channels with which to communicate to global audiences.

Trump plans to slash State Department spending, under which VOA falls, by as much as 28 percent, which means some reductions are quite likely. But let’s make one thing clear: As federal entities, VOA and similar media do not do, and have not done, journalism for journalism’s sake. They are and always have been funded by taxpayers to support a larger agenda.

Whether that agenda is to make audiences feel good about America, as the last chairman of the BBG once put it, or to push the notion that they tell America’s story but do so by exercising press freedoms enshrined in the Constitution, it’s still an agenda.

There are many reasons to be concerned about Trump administration treatment of and attitudes toward media, and to watch closely the actions of a two-person Trump team in place at VOA. But to hold VOA and its parent agency out as journalistic paragons of virtue, as some major media have done, and assert they are no different from non-government media, ignores basic facts.

I spent about 35 years with Voice of America, serving in positions ranging from chief White House correspondent to overseas bureau chief and head of a key language division, and I can tell you that for a long time, two things have been true. First, US government-funded media have been seriously mismanaged, a reality that made them ripe for bipartisan reform efforts in Congress, climaxing late in 2016 when President Obama signed the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Second, there is widespread agreement in Congress and elsewhere that, in exchange for continued funding, these government broadcasters must do more, as part of the national security apparatus, to assist efforts to combat Russian, ISIS, and al-Qaeda disinformation.

Obama’s reforms, but also various precursor measures, paved the way for VOA (and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, Office of Cuba Broadcasting, and Middle East Broadcasting Networks) to become even more closely associated with the so-called Counter Violent Extremism and counter-disinformation programs.

It’s little-remembered now, but just over two years into his presidency, in September 2011, Obama ordered an “integrated strategic counterterrorism communications initiative”—designed to get agencies including VOA’s parent agency to collaborate in combating terrorism and extremism. The order also created a Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications, bringing representatives of all departments and agencies into counter-terrorism efforts, including DOD, CIA, and significantly, the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

In March 2016, another Obama order created a Global Engagement Center, which costs taxpayers about $160 million annually to counter disinformation, with initial funding from the Pentagon budget. Meantime, the Broadcasting Board of Governors is on a path to eventual elimination, to be replaced by a CEO—which would be a presidential appointee confirmed by the Senate.

That structure alone makes clear that VOA and other government-funded media are most certainly not “news companies,” a description former VOA director David Ensor was fond of using (before arriving at VOA in 2010, Ensor had crossed over from mainstream roles at NPR, ABC, and CNN to heading public diplomacy programs at the US Embassy in Kabul, what many still consider to be propaganda).

A yet-to-be-formed International Broadcasting Advisory Board will include the Secretary of State advising the CEO (John Lansing, an Obama holdover, currently holds the role). Meanwhile, the aforementioned Global Engagement Center is supposed to coordinate all government efforts to counter propaganda and disinformation efforts “aimed at undermining United States national security interests.”

The Center itself is located in the Department of State: That might seem sufficient to insulate VOA behind the firewall that has allegedly immunized government-funded media from political and policy interference, but let’s take a closer look. At best, it is difficult to believe there will not be significant levels of policy-based coordination between the new advisory board, which includes Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and the broadcasting CEO. And it’s hard to envision Donald Trump wanting to tamper with the kind of inter-agency approach ordered by Barack Obama.

As for firewalls, VOA already established an Extremism Watch Desk. Its material appears prominently at the top of VOA’s website—the same VOA that a former director tried label a “news company” while in the same breath describing it as a “state broadcaster.” It’s hard to imagine there won’t be interaction between this VOA extremism unit and the Global Engagement Center, and that members of the unit will not at some point be detailed to the State Department-based Center and vice versa.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors has also been deeply involved in the development and funding of anti-Internet censorship technology, which clearly supports freedom of expression. This is also another obvious area of overlap between the broadcasters and the Global Engagement Center.

The impression often given in media reports is that programming by VOA and other government-funded media is not influenced, directed, or shaped by foreign policy objectives of any administration. This is just absurd. Among other things, the revered firewall certainly didn’t stop officials from standing up the Extremism Watch Desk.

In a tense confrontation with management in 2015, some VOA reporters protested against a day-long workshop that had been arranged by VOA officials at a conservative think tank, the Hudson Institute, whose director sat on the BBG. VOA reporters demanded from their news managers “a swift and complete renunciation of the idea that VOA would engage in countering violent extremism.” They also asked why such an operation would be placed at VOA “as opposed to an intelligence agency.”

Yet, as of this writing the VOA Extremism Watch Desk remains, allowing broadcasting bureaucrats to retain their high-paying jobs and be seen as loyal warriors in countering ISIS, regardless of who is in the White House.

A few years ago, Obama adviser Ben Rhodes video-conferenced with the BBG to lament how far behind the agency had fallen in countering Russian disinformation. It’s difficult to accept the notion that there wasn’t some impact on programming from that.

Whatever Trump decides to do, remember too that taxpayers, who VOA and BBG officials assert get maximum bang for the buck from US international broadcasting programs, also expect VOA to be a key player in countering terrorist and Russian disinformation.

VOA still operates under its congressionally-approved 1976 Charter, requiring it to report accurately, objectively, and comprehensively, and reflect a range of opinions. It carries what are called “editorials” reflecting US government positions, written by a special policy office at VOA. Over the decades, VOA has succeeded, to varying degrees, at making the case that its government-paid reporters are no different than those working for commercial media.

But any notion that “whole of government” approaches can exclude participation by VOA, challenges common sense. A recent Washington Post editorial, in support of a new agency TV program that is clearly part of the counter-disinformation effort, said staffs at VOA and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty are “made up of professional journalists … [who] do not want to be US propaganda tools.”

Good for them. But the fact remains that every two weeks they accept government paychecks. And at the end of the day will be progressively more enmeshed with the national security and foreign policy objectives of the United States. Government-paid journalists can no longer pretend they are just like their friends at CBS, NBC, AP, NPR, Reuters, and others, or expect to be seen as such by those working for non-government media. That’s simply living in delusion.

The Mass Brainwashing of Germany

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 22, 2018

Brutal German state propaganda to encourage children to be muslims?

German State TV Series: “Lindenstraße” Episode 1084 “Islam”
Murat (Erkan Gündüz is surprised how much Lisa (Santje Peplow) is defending Islam

That little schmaltzy video was a scene from a German State TV series, broadcast in 2006, one year after Angela Merkel became chancellor, and when she was  still pretending to be for  Germany and a “Conservative”.  Then she met Sorros,  Erdogan, Obama etc….and the rest, as they say, is history. The number of Muslims in Germany  then was around 3.3 million. While exact statistics today seem  unreliable, a conservative estimate of over 4.7 million Muslims as of 2015 is said to be conservative.

The series was called “Lindenstrasse” and the young woman who “converted” – or “reverted” as Muslims call it – played the role of a young mother, Lisa, engaged to a Turkish Muslim, Murat,  who was working very hard to earn the money for the wedding. I watched that episode and a few that followed, until I came close to a saccharine overdose. You got a taste of it in the video above.

A discussion on the issue of state funded pro-Islamic propaganda:

CNN Just Got Hit by a Massive Truth Bomb–The Facts of Life Are Conservative

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 28, 2017

Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now.”

And there you have it, a CNN producer, caught on camera, frankly admitting that “fake news” isn’t some regrettable accident of the 24-hour news cycle.

Fake news” is CNN’s entire business model. (The business model of quite a few other liberal MSM outlets too, if the tantalizing hints being dropped by James O’Keefe are to be believed…)

As a fellow human being I feel sorry for the poor guy caught on camera by Project Veritasadmitting this stuff — because he’s probably going to lose his job.

But as a fellow journalist I feel about as much sympathy for him as I do for all those idiot jihadists who go out to fight in Raqqa and Mosul, lured by the cool videos of the beards, black flags, and AKs with the wailing soundtrack. Did they seriously imagine when they joined ISIS/CNN that it was all just going to be about the glamour and the hot chicks and the purity of the noble cause?

And I’m really not being high minded here. It just seems to me that one of the most basic, entry-level precepts that any serious news organization ought to be observe – and that CNN most patently never has observed, or not for a very, very long time – is this:

Facts are sacred. The truth always makes the best story. You do not make shit up.

Not only ought this stuff to be obvious, but it ought to come instinctively. Isn’t the whole attraction of joining an unglamorous, overworked, underpaid trade like journalism that you want to discover the truth about the world: all the stuff that they would rather you didn’t know?

That’s certainly been my own experience in the last few years covering the climate change/enviro-lunacy beat. I’ve never much enjoyed all the flak I’ve got from the left-wing media; still less have I liked being rejected by so many friends. But the thing that has kept me going through the hard times is that I know I’m doing good and making a real difference: there are some devious bastards out there doing terrible stuff and I’m exposing their knavery and holding them to account.

For any self-respecting journalist, I’d call that “job done.”

Sometimes I get asked by people on the other side of the argument: “What if you’re wrong?”

Here’s the first thing I’ll do if I’m wrong about climate change. I’ll write a big piece explaining why I’m wrong. Then I’ll find someone who is prepared to pay me for writing the opposite of what I do now.

This isn’t because I’m a moral paragon. It’s because I’m lazy and because I prefer the easier life: writing journalism where you have to keep making up your “facts” is much, much harder than doing what I do now, which is basically, copying out true facts and then adding a few nice adjectives and thinking up a snarky final sentence.

That said, I would have to concede that this is much easier to do if you’re politically on the right rather than on the left.

Margaret Thatcher once said “The facts of life are conservative.” And as in so many things, she was absolutely spot on. This, as you can imagine, makes life very, very difficult for people in the overcrowded left-wing media. (It’s overcrowded because so many journalists think they’re left wing).

Every day, they wake up to a world where: Israel is the only functioning democracy in the Middle East with the best human rights record; socialism is failing everywhere it is being tried from Venezuela to North Korea; the worst, most fascistic acts of violence and intolerance are being committed by left-wing people calling themselves “anti-fascists”; Islam is not a “religion of peace”; Trump is doing a great job as president — way, way better than his predecessor Obama; man-made climate change is the biggest scam in the history of science, politics, or economics…

And somehow they’ve got to construct stories demonstrating the opposite because it’s what their dumb-assed audiences want to hear.

How, if you’re running a left-wing media organization, do you reconcile this yawning gulf between the facts on the ground and your preferred political narrative?

Simple: you remake the world so that black is white and white is black; you create your own facts.

The liberal media has achieved this in myriad ways: selective reporting; emotive storytelling where opinion masquerades as news; targeting and vicious demonizing of anyone on the other side of the argument; the extensive quotation and celebration of people on the left who have successfully infiltrated schools, universities, branches of government, and other institutions both public and private, so that their skewed version of events becomes the official narrative.

But perhaps the deadliest weapon in the liberal media’s armory is this: the continual pretence it makes that its news reporting is fair, balanced, and honest; that it is constantly striving after objective truth; that only its enemies in the malign right-wing press are guilty of biased journalism.

And for years organizations like CNN — not to mention the New York Times, the Washington Post and their various UK counterparts like the Guardian and the BBC — have been getting away with this because, as someone once said (maybe Churchill, maybe Lenin, maybe Mark Twain — no one is quite sure), “a lie is half way round the world before the truth has got his boots on.”

One of the malign consequences of this deliberate and cynical lie (which comes straight out of the Leninist playbook) is that conservative media outlets have been continually forced onto the back foot, forever having to defend themselves against the charge that they serve up politicised news designed to advance their right wing agenda.

Which they do, of course. Fox News does it. Breitbart does it. The Daily Caller does it. The Sun and the Daily Mail do it. Every one of them is undoubtedly guilty of serving up journalism with a right wing slant.

The key element missing from this particular calumny is that the left wing media demonstrates at least as much bias, if not more. It just won’t admit it.

CNN Caught On Hidden Cam Saying Russian Thing Is BS

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 27, 2017

Project Veritas, the undercover news group devoted to exposing how the establishment really thinks, got a CNN producer on camera to admit that the news network’s coverage of the phony Trump colluded with Russia story is a cynical effort to whip up ratings, a false narrative promoted to make money, not a bid to report the news as a first draft of history.

Hence, its wall-to-wall coverage of the Democrats’ Russia narrative, despite there being no there there. CNN has mentioned Russia 60,000 times since President Trump was inaugurated.

Here’s the thinking behind the obsession that has occupied a huge part of the Trump presidency:

Speaking on camera, CNN supervising producer John Bonifield in Atlanta told Project Veritas:

Project Veritas: The more CNN is constantly like Russia this, Russia that…

Bonifield: Because it’s ratings.

Project Veritas: Because it’s ratings?

Bonifield: Our ratings are incredible right now.

After that, he admitted there was little substance to the story – the network was just catering to what its leftist viewers wanted to hear:

Project Veritas: But honestly you think the whole thing is just like bullshit

It could be bullshit. It’s mostly bullshit right now, like we don’t have any big giant proof.

I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging. So I think the president is probably right to say like ‘ook you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.’

And why did think it was a false narrative? Because if there were any substance to the story…

Bonifield: It would leak. If it was something really good, it would leak.

and

Bonifield: The leaks keep leaking I just refuse to believe that if they had something really good like that, it wouldn’t leak. (inaudible) I just feel like the don’t really have it but they want to keep digging.

Bonifield suggested it was ratings-driven and it came from the top. The CEO of the network, he said, told the editors:

“Good job covering the climate accords but we are done, let’s move back to Russia.”

Bonifield also admitted he was cynical and most of his colleagues were, too. Questioned about journalistic ethics, he said with withering sarcasm: “that’s adorable.”

So what can be said is going on? CNN is no longer a news network – it’s more a whip-up-the-left operation, to make leftists feel good about their crazed anti-Trump suspicions. It’s ratings-driven, not news-driven. And it’s interfering with what President Trump was put into office by voters to do.

It’s a strange beast these days. It’s not really about news. It’s about fake news.

James O Keefe in the above video:

The American people are fade up with fake news, and the mainstream media they can not trust, it’s corporate greed, market pressures, Managers without integrity, newsroom boses without courage, journalists who don’t even leave their desks.

The Very Purpose of Journalism is to Expose the World for What it Is – Not to Create False Political Narratives nor to Make Money.

SHOCK VIDEO: CNN Creates #FakeNews in London Following Terror Attacks, Stages Anti-ISIS Muslim Protesters

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 6, 2017

A video released a day after the Islamic terror attacks in London show a CNN crew staging a scene with Muslims holding signs saying “ISIS Will Lose”.

The same crowd was used for the following AP post it appears – note the man with green around his neck in both pictures. This is how fake news spreads.

Below are videos of the behind-the-scenes work CNN did to stage the photo-op with Muslims holding up signs that read, ‘ISIS WILL LOSE’.

English newspaper columnist for the Daily Mail, Katie Hopkins chimed in as well saying,

Please watch. You are being deceived.”

Selected Comments:

The media has been doing this for many years. I’m so glad they got caught. Listen to the lies they are telling to cover and justify this. It is downright propaganda.

This is more frightening than the jihadis themselves.

CNN has gone from sick to totally depraved. The aren’t reporting news, they are trying to brainwash viewers. I’ve cut the cord. I will not pay to have this filth pumped into my house.

CNN has been carrying pro-muslim, pro-terrorist propaganda since 1990 at least. And they’ve done it quite consistently.

CNN is a leftist toilet that hasnt been flushed in 20 years..

Can someone explain to me why CNN is the ONLY cable station in EVERY airport(at least every US airport I have experienced).

I can’t stomach even watching CNN anymore! They are a complete and total part of the elite political establishment
