CNN: From Nobel Laureate to Global Pariah: How The World Got Abiy Ahmed And Ethiopia So Wrong

TDF = ELA (ኢነሠ) = ‘የኢትዮጵያ ነፃ አውጪ ሠራዊት’ ባፋጣኝ ግራኝን መያዝ አለበት፤ ጦርነት አያስፈልግም፤ ዓለምን የሚያስጮህ የጀግነንት ተግባር ሳይፈጸም አንድም ቀን ማለፍ የለበትም፤ ልዩ ኮማንዶ ወደ አዲስ አበባ ልካችሁ ጽዮናውያንን በረሃብ ጨርሶ እስላማዊት ኦሮሚያ ኤሚራትን ለመመስረት ያለመውን አረመኔ የኦሮሞ አገዛዝ 😈 ሙሉ በሙል በእሳት ጠራርጓችሁ አጥፉት። ከዓመት በፊት አስጠንቅቀናል፤ WEP/USAID ወዘተ ሁሉም ጽዮናውያንን በስልት ለመጨረስ ተናብበው የሚሠሩ የሉሲፈራውያኑ ተቋማት ናቸው። “የ2019 + 2020 የኖቤል ሰላም ሽልማት ለግራኝ እና ለተባበሩት መንግስታት የምግብ ፕሮግራም ተቋም መሰጠቱ ጽዮናውያንን በእሳት እና በረሃብ የመፍጂያ ቀብድ ነው” ያልነው ያው ደረሰ፤ እያየነው ነው። ሁሉም የትግራይን ሕዝብ በድራማቸው እየጨረሱት ነው። ፍጠኑ! እውነት ለሕዝባችሁ የቆማችሁ ከሆ፤ በኦሮሚያ የቱርኮችን የመጨፍጨፊያ ድሮኖቹን በመገጣጠም ላይ ያለው የኦሮሞዎቹ የእነ ሽመልስ አብዲሳ እና ለማ መገርሳ ቡድን ‘OLA’ በሞኝነት ”ይረዳናል” ብላችሁ በጭራሽ አትጠብቁ፤ ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድን እራሳችሁ ባፋጣኝ ድፉት!

When Kidanemariam, who is from Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, approached the dais to introduce his longtime friend and colleague to the crowd, he said he was greeted with heckles from members of the audience: “Get out of the podium Tigrayan, get out of the podium Woyane,” and other ethnic slurs. He expected Abiy, who preached a political philosophy of inclusion, to chide the crowd, but he said nothing. Later, over lunch, when Kidanemariam asked why, he said Abiy told him: “There was nothing to correct.“”

Abiy’s early advocates and supporters say he not only misled the world, but his own people — and they are now paying a steep price.

In his open letter announcing he was leaving his post, Kidanemariam wrote of Abiy: “Instead of fulfilling his initial promise, he has led Ethiopia down a dark path toward destruction and disintegration.””

“Abiy, Abiy,” the crowd chanted, waving Ethiopia’s tricolor flag and cheering as the country’s new prime minister, dressed in a white blazer with gold trim and smiling broadly, waved to a packed basketball arena at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, part of a whirlwind three-city tour of the United States to woo the diaspora.

It was July 2018, just three months after Abiy Ahmed had been appointed leader of Africa’s second-most populous country, and his star was rising both at home and abroad. Excitement was surging into an almost religious fervor around the young politician, who promised to bring peace, prosperity and reconciliation to a troubled corner of Africa and a nation on the brink of crisis.

But even in those early, optimistic days of Abiy’s premiership, as he kickstarted a flurry of ambitious reforms — freeing thousands of political prisoners, lifting restrictions on the press, welcoming back exiles and banned opposition parties, appointing women to positions in his cabinet, opening up the country’s tightly-controlled economy to new investment and negotiating peace with neighboring Eritrea — Berhane Kidanemariam had his doubts.

The Ethiopian diplomat has known the prime minister for almost 20 years, forging a friendship when he worked for the governing coalition’s communications team and, later, as CEO of two state-run news organizations, while Abiy was in military intelligence and then heading Ethiopia’s cybersecurity agency, INSA. Before working for Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kidanemariam ran the country’s national broadcaster, the EBC, and he said Abiy sat on its board of directors.

In a recent phone interview, Kidanemariam said he, like many Ethiopians, had hoped Abiy could transform the nation’s fractious politics and usher in genuine democratic change. But he struggled to square his understanding of the man he’d first met in 2004 — who he described as power-hungry intelligence officer obsessed by fame and fortune — with the portrait emerging of a visionary peacemaker from humble beginnings.

In 2018, Kidanemariam was serving as Ethiopia’s consul general in Los Angeles and said he helped organize Abiy’s visit.

When Kidanemariam, who is from Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, approached the dais to introduce his longtime friend and colleague to the crowd, he said he was greeted with heckles from members of the audience: “Get out of the podium Tigrayan, get out of the podium Woyane,” and other ethnic slurs. He expected Abiy, who preached a political philosophy of inclusion, to chide the crowd, but he said nothing. Later, over lunch, when Kidanemariam asked why, he said Abiy told him: “There was nothing to correct.”

“One of the ironies of a prime minister who came to office promising unity is that he has deliberately exacerbated hatred between different groups,” Kidanemariam wrote in an open letter in March, announcing that he was quitting his post as the deputy chief of mission at the Ethiopian embassy in Washington, DC, in protest over Abiy’s monthslong war in Tigray, which has spurred a refugee crisis, atrocities and famine.

Kidanemariam said to CNN he believed Abiy’s focus had never been about “reform or democracy or human rights or freedom of the press. It is simply consolidating power for himself, and getting money out of it … We may call it authoritarianism or dictatorship, but he is really getting to be a king.”

“By the way,” he added, “the problem is not only for Tigrayans. It’s for all Ethiopians. Everybody is suffering everywhere.”

In an email to CNN, Abiy’s spokeswoman, Billene Seyoum, described Kidanemariam’s characterization of the prime minister as “baseless” and a “reflection.”

‘The epitome of hell’

Much has changed since Abiy accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in November 2019, telling an audience in Oslo, Norway, that “war is the epitome of hell.”

In less than two years, Abiy has gone from darling of the international community to pariah, condemned for his role in presiding over a protracted civil war that, by many accounts, bears the hallmarks of genocide and has the potential to destabilize the wider Horn of Africa region.

The 45-year-old’s fall from grace has confounded many observers, who wonder how they could have gotten him so wrong. But diplomats, analysts, independent Ethiopian journalists, acquaintances and others who have followed his career closely say that even at the height of “Abiymania,” there were warning signs.

Critics say that by blessing Abiy with an array of international endorsements, the West not only failed to see — or willfully ignored — those signals, but gave him a blank check and then turned a blind eye.

“Soon after Abiy was crowned with that Nobel Peace Prize, he lost an appetite in pursuing domestic reform,” Tsedale Lemma, founder and editor-in-chief of Addis Standard, an independent monthly news magazine based in Ethiopia, told CNN on a Skype call. “He considered it a blanket pass to do as he wishes.”

The war in Tigray is not the first time he’s used that pass, she said, adding that since Abiy came to power on the platform of unifying Ethiopia’s people and in its state, he has ruthlessly consolidated control and alienated critical regional players.

Lemma has covered Abiy’s rise for the Addis Standard — which was briefly suspended by Ethiopia’s media regulator in July — and was an early critic of his government when few were sounding the alarm. Days after Abiy was awarded the Nobel Prize, she wrote an editorial warning that the initiatives he had been recognized for — the peace process with Eritrea and political reforms in Ethiopia — had sidelined a key stakeholder, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, and were in serious jeopardy.

The TPLF had governed Ethiopia with an iron grip for decades, overseeing a period of stability and economic growth at the cost of basic civil and political rights. The party’s authoritarian rule provoked a popular uprising that ultimately forced Abiy’s predecessor, Hailemariam Desalegn, to resign. Abiy was appointed by the ruling class to bring change, without upending the old political order. But almost as soon as he came to power, Abiy announced the rearrangement of the ruling coalition that the TPLF had founded — the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Front, or EPRDF, which was composed of four parties — into a single, new Prosperity Party, ostracizing the TPLF in the process.

Abiy’s appointment had been intended to quell tensions. Instead, his drive for a new pan-Ethiopian political party sparked fears in some regions that the country’s federal system, which guarantees significant autonomy to ethnically-defined states, such as Tigray, was under threat.

The Tigrayans weren’t the only ones who were worried. In Abiy’s home region, Oromia, and other administrative zones, people began to demand self-rule. Soon, the government began backsliding into the authoritarian practices Abiy had once renounced: Violent crackdowns on protesters, the jailing of journalists and opposition politicians, and twice postponing elections.

Ahmed Soliman, a research fellow at Chatham House and an expert on the Horn of Africa, said Abiy’s reform plan also increased expectations among constituencies with conflicting agendas, further heightening tensions.

“Abiy and his government have rightly been blamed for implementing uneven reforms and for insecurity increasing throughout the country, but to an extent, some of that was inherited. These simmering ethnic and political divisions that exist in the country have very deep roots,” he said.

Tensions reached a boiling point last September, when the Tigrayans defied Abiy by holding a vote which had been delayed due to the pandemic, setting off a tit-for-tat series of recriminations that spilled into open conflict in November 2020.

This July, in the midst of the war, Abiy and his party won a landslide victory in a general election that was boycotted by opposition parties, marred by logistical issues and excluded many voters, including all those in Tigray — a crushing disappointment to many who had high hopes that the democratic transition Abiy promised three years ago would be realized.

“He sees himself as a Messiah, as chosen, as someone who’s destined to ‘Make Ethiopia Great Again,’ but this country is collapsing,” Lemma said, adding that the international community’s folly was falling for the picture Abiy painted of himself — “a post-ethnic, contemporary capitalist” — in their desperation for a dazzling success story.

‘A monumental failure of analysis’

Still, many Ethiopians are reluctant to lay the blame for the country’s unravelling at Abiy’s feet. Ahead of the election in June, residents in Addis Ababa told CNN they felt Abiy had inherited a mess from the previous regime and had always faced an uphill battle pushing reforms forward — an assessment shared by some regional experts.

“Lots of people were hopeful that the liberalizing changes, after those years of anti-government protests and all of the state violence in response, […] marked a moment where Ethiopia would start to conduct its politics more peacefully. But that thinking glossed over some of the major problems and contradictions in Ethiopia,” said William Davidson, senior Ethiopia analyst with the International Crisis Group.

“There was always a massive challenge ahead for Abiy, and for everyone. Just the promise of a more pluralistic political system did nothing necessarily to resolve the clashing nationalisms, opposing visions, and bitter political rivalries.”

In recent months, Abiy has tried to dodge international condemnation by pledging to protect civilians, open up humanitarian access to stave off famine and kick out Eritrean troops, who have supported Ethiopian forces in the conflict and stand accused of some of the most horrifying of the many atrocities in Tigray — pledges that American officials say he has not delivered on. After the United States issued sanctions in May, Ethiopia’s foreign ministry accused it of meddling in the country’s internal affairs and misunderstanding the significant challenges on the ground.

As the tide of international opinion has turned against Abiy, the prime minister’s office has maintained he is not concerned about his deteriorating reputation; his supporters have increasingly blamed the West for the crisis unfolding in the country. “The prime minister need not be a darling of the west, east, south or north,” Abiy’s spokeswoman Billene Seyoum told reporters in June. “It is sufficient that he stands for the people of Ethiopia and the development of the nation.”

But it is difficult to reconcile the government’s narrative with reality. Setting to one side the staggering loss of life and destruction inside Tigray, the war has eroded Abiy’s aggressive development plans and derailed the country’s economic trajectory, experts say. Ethiopia’s economy had grown at nearly 10% for the last decade, before slowing in 2020, dragged down by a combination of the Covid-19 pandemic, debt and conflict. The war has also drained national coffers, decimated a large slice of the country’s industry and eroded its reputation among foreign investors and financial institutions.

“From where I sit, I think there was a monumental failure of analysis, internationally,” Rashid Abdi, a Kenya-based analyst and researcher who specializes in the Horn of Africa, said, including himself in that group. “I think people failed to apprehend the complex nature of Ethiopia’s transition, especially they failed to appreciate also the complex side of Abiy, that he was not all this sunny, smiling guy. That beneath was a much more calculating, and even Machiavellian figure, who eventually will I think push the country towards a much more dangerous path.”

“We should have begun to take notice of some of the red flags quite quickly. A lot of complacency is what got us here,” he added.

The seventh king of Ethiopia

During his inaugural address to parliament in 2018, Abiy made a point of thanking his mother, a Christian from the Amhara region, who he said had told him at the age of seven that, despite his modest background, he would one day be the seventh king of Ethiopia. The remark was met with a round of laughter from his cabinet members, but Abiy’s belief in his mother’s prophecy was no joke.

“In the initial stages of the war, actually, he spoke openly about how this was God’s plan, and that this was a kind of divine mission for him. This is a man who early in the morning, instead of meeting his top advisors, would meet with some of his spiritual advisers, these are pastors who are very powerful now in a sort of ‘kitchen cabinet,'” Abdi said.

But the most glaring of warning signs, by many accounts, was Abiy’s surprise allegiance with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki, for which he ultimately won the Nobel Prize.

Abiy’s critics say that what cemented his status as a peacemaker on the world stage was based on a farce, and that the alignment with Eritrea was yet another effort to consolidate his power, paving the way for the two sides to wage war against their mutual enemy, the TPLF. Soon after the Eritrea-Ethiopia border reopened in 2018, reuniting families after 20 years, it closed again. Three years on, Eritrean troops are operating with impunity in Tigray, and there is little sign of a durable peace.

In response, Abiy’s spokeswoman rejected this assertion, calling it a “toxic narrative.”

Mehari Taddele Maru, a professor of governance and migration at the European University Institute, who was skeptical of the peace deal early on — a deeply unpopular view at the time — believes the Nobel Committee’s endorsement of Abiy has contributed to the current conflict.

“I am of the strongest opinion that the Nobel Prize Committee is responsible for what is happening in Ethiopia, at least partially. They had reliable information; many experts sounded their early warning,” Mehari, who is from Tigray, told CNN.

“The Committee was basing its decision on a peace deal that we flagged for a false start, a peace that is not only achieved but perhaps unachievable and an agreement that was not meant for peace but actually for war. What he [Abiy] did with Isaias was not meant to bring peace. He knew that, Isaias knew that. They were working, basically, to execute a war, to sandwich Tigray from South and North carefully by ostracizing one political party first.”

The most palpable and lasting impact of the award, according to several analysts and observers, was a chilling effect on any criticism of Abiy.

The persona he cultivated, cemented in part through his many early accolades — being named African of the Year in 2018, one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People, and one of Foreign Policy’s 100 Global Thinkers in 2019 — captivated the imagination of Ethiopians, the country’s large diaspora and the world. Many now feel betrayed, having lost any optimism about the future of the country, but others are still intent on retaining that glittering image of Abiy, reluctant to see the writing on the wall.

“By the time the war started in November, the international community was extremely committed to the idea of Abiy Ahmed as a reformer still, and they didn’t want to give up on that,” said Goitom Gebreluel, a Horn of Africa researcher from Tigray, who was in Addis Ababa at the start of the conflict.

“I had meetings with various diplomats before the war and it was obvious that the war was coming, and what they were saying was, ‘you know, he still has this project, we have to let him realize his political vision,'” he said. “To this day, I think not everyone is convinced that this is an autocrat.”

Now, with Ethiopia facing a “man-made” famine and a war apparently without end, Abiy stands alone, largely isolated from the international community and with a shrinking cadre of allies.

Abiy’s early advocates and supporters say he not only misled the world, but his own people — and they are now paying a steep price.

In his open letter announcing he was leaving his post, Kidanemariam wrote of Abiy: “Instead of fulfilling his initial promise, he has led Ethiopia down a dark path toward destruction and disintegration.”

“Like so many others who thought the prime minister had the potential to lead Ethiopia to a bright future, I am filled with despair and anguish at the direction he is taking our country.”

UK: Thousands Call For Visa-Free Migration Between The Uk, Australia, New Zealand And Canada

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 7, 2016

MORE than 200,000 people have signed petitions for the Government to pursue a free movement treaty between the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

A petition on change.org started by the Commonwealth Freedom of Movement Organisation has 161,896 supporters and a separate parliament e-petition has more than 45,000 signatories.

Supporters say that now Britain is set to leave the European Union’s free movement zone it should pursue similar, more appropriate agreements with old Commonwealth allies instead.

Continue reading the comments…

My Note: When I frist read this news, I immidiately thought of the below video I prepared a couple of weeks ago concerning the Olympic Games.

Why no VISA-FREE migration for the now, ‘new’„COMONWEALTH of NATIONS„? After all, settlers in Australia, New Zealand and Canada were British folks who had been discriminated in the UK, therefore deported to all corners, like the IRISH criminals to Australia and New Zealand, Scottish anti-English nationalists to Canada.

These evil entities are dividing and exploiting our nations, while, at the same time, creating a safe heaven for their own subjects. In the 21st century they still are convinced that the world belongs to them, and only to them! No wonder, Philippine president publicly described Obama in vulgar term.

UK To Build A Wall To Keep Out Calais Migrants

On the other hand, what surprised me more is the current wicked generation of Brazilians applauding entusistically for the same rich nations the British public did during the London Olympics. With the Brits, you might call it TRIBALISM – and the Brazilians…

The UK Splitting From The European Union Is Predicted In Bible Prophecy And Is Victory For God. Examining What Lays Ahead

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 25, 2016

The Lord giveth,the Lord taketh,blessed be the name of the Lord. [Job 1:21]

1459432329_tmp_EU_UNION_FLAG-e1462045029783-1024x512

The red crucifix of the UK emerging out of the EU’s flag of stars in a circle is a great sight to see. Britain’s exit costs the EU one of its wealthiest members and one of its biggest military powers is a sign that the Bible is true’ God ordained nationalism for a reason to keep evil in check. What happens next is not anyone’s guess. In fact it is easily predictable. Prime Minister David Cameron who cyber-rattled against Donald Trump has already announced he will resign after failing to convince voters to stay in the union.

Conservative politicians in France, the Netherlands and other EU member states are calling for similar votes in their countries. Prophecy has already etched the future of Europe as we shall further explain. You do not have to monitor the media which falsely predicted that the UK will remain in order to understand that God’s ways is not man’s.

But first, the EU is weighed down with economic and Muslim migration crises which as we accurately predicted will play a major factor resulting in the Euroskeptic defeating the Eurocentric in the UK. Europe converting to Islam as many predicted is out the window.

The trend we predicted has begun and the clock is turning in reverse of what many falsely predicted.

In the U.S. it will be Trump’s victory of Americanism vs. Hillary’s Globalism. Prophecy teachers for decades were dead wrong on the EU. They spoke of the European Common Market controlling the ‘buying and selling,’ that the EU is “the revived Roman Empire”, that the Eurocentric and the globalist one-world-government was this coming Antichrist, that the single European currency will become the standard, that the Treaty of Rome with all the nonsense will control the world … they were all dead wrong.

In the last three months we saw this coming and pre warned with several detailed articles encouraging you to ignore the false information and to focus on the Euroskeptic defeating the Eurocentric. In the UK, this is exactly what happened and in March we predicted:

The European Union will first disintegrate as we see this is beginning to happen”.

And on April 3rd, we asked you to focus on the key biblical component:

Evil always starts with abandonment of nationalism (reverse to what God did at Babel) and ends by nationalism (aversion from Babel) and the reversion to nationalism was what brought the Ottoman Empire to collapse as we have seen with the Communist and every other evil empire. It all starts in Genesis and ends in Genesis where the war is between the seed of the woman and the seed of satan is reversed and Babel retreats.

Keeping these principles is key to stop believing in the success of a one world order and we see Europe reverting to nationalism which will eventually defeat globalism’s European Union, while the Muslim is reverting back to Babel attempting a one world language, one world religion (Islam) and one world government (Sharia).

God’s refinement is by reversing the Babel effect where the two (reverse as in Euroskeptic and unite as in Eurocentric) are colliding together. The Euroskeptic results from the massive Muslim locust invasion and the falling away results in Eurocentric.

Even the polls were dead wrong as we predicted. Investors wrongly hedged their bets on polls showing a narrow lead for the ‘Remain in the EU’. Political analyst Peter Kellner, a former president of YouGov, predicted Remain would win by 8.5 per cent on Thursday. Populus had also previously put Remain ahead by 10 points at 55%, against 45% for leaving the EU. Ipsos Mori, for the Evening Standard gave remain a four-point lead at 52%, against 48%. They all predicted the UK will remain in the EU and they were dead wrong.

If polls underestimated right-wing support in the U.K., they could very well be miscalculating it in the U.S. As Bill Kristol said “if polls show Clinton up 5, could Trump be even?”

Polls can be wrong when people vote. When it comes to nationalism, jobs, economy, Trump leads Hillary. Europe is now clinging to nationalism. In April we predicted it warning:

Europe will bust and as the local election in the UK draws near in two weeks on May 5th 2016, the European Union gets closer to the explosion where it enters a crisis level getting us closer to what prophecy foretold.

Indeed, Europe plays a role in end-times, but not as you have been taught in the last few decades and this will not happen quick. This splitting process alongside Muslim unification process will take years and will not happen overnight and will be the subject of the news in the next decade or so. Christ is not returning in 2016 or 2018.

The prophetic question many failed to ask is this: if a one world government is to take place or a European Union is to control the entire continent, how then will God “divide the nations”? How then will “nation war against nation, kingdom against kingdom” and how will God “divide the nations” “sheep from goats”?

For decades people ignored these key verses and have been fed hype about a single currency. Europe in the next decade will face splits galore. Scotland last year forgot the history of William Wallace and voted to remain with the UK to gain benefits breast-feeding from the EU’s udder, and now that the tit is dry they too are entertaining a split from the UK itself.

The U.K. Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the Scottish National Party would seek to hold a new referendum on secession. Sinn Fein, Northern Ireland’s second-largest party, renewed its calls for a vote there on leaving the U.K. and joining the Republic of Ireland.

Even in Spain, the Spanish want to control the key entry between Muslim north Africa to Europe, the Gibraltar. As soon the the UK voted to split from the EU, Spain’s Foreign Minister, Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo, stated:

I hope the formula of co-sovereignity – to be clear, the Spanish flag on the Rock [Gibraltar]– is much closer than before”.

And Germany’s right wing party too wants to split the E.U. saying: “France and southern EU states – Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece among them – to be banished from Eurozone, as they lack “cultures of stability” like Germany’s.”

So its time to revive my previous article I wrote a month ago to remind you why I insisted on writing on Europe. Few examine prophecies that predict a split in Europe (explained here in detail). Even in Belgium itself, the central headquarters of the EU, there are prophecies that speak of regions like Wallonia which comprise 55% of Belgium and prophecies of civil struggles between Northern and Southern Europe where Germany will turn against France and we have seen official statements coming from Germany’s AfD Alexander Gauland which confirm these predictions.

48ac83f72aWe are beginning to see the signs of a future split in Europe, even states within states, separating between sheep and goat nations where France, parts of Italy, Spain and Portugal will be destined as sheep nations, while Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and the Baltic states or major parts of these will remain liberal and anti-God to be destined as goat nations. Austria could go sheep or goat, we do not know.

And if in doubt that these prophecies are just archaic fairytale, just look at what Germany’s Gauland said last month:

We [Germany] can have a common currency with the Netherlands, Austria, Finland or Baltic states. They have similar cultures of stability like ours, but the French have a different one, not to mention the Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese and Greeks. They don’t want austerity at all.”

The remarks made by the AfD deputy leader Alexander Gauland and party’s federal spokesman and co-leader Joerg Meuthen in the interview to German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung says it all.

And just in case you still persist in your view that south splitting from north as religious folktale, here is one major secular strategist, Stratfor’s renown George Friedman, just last month, he says that France will break up with Germany and will lead a “Mediterranean bloc”:

Alternatively, France could become the leader of a Mediterranean bloc, splitting the eurozone in two (with a “northern euro” and a “southern euro“) or reinstating separate national currencies.

And if Christ “goes with the whirlwinds of the south,” as Zechariah 9:13 predicted, in Europe, it will be the same, where south will go against north.

And while many focus on Germany’s Merkel lack of popularity, this matters little. Even if Germany be ruled by the right like the AfD or by Merkel, the writing is on the wall; Germany wants to rule the EU and wants some European states to leave while it cuddles up to the goat nation of Turkey getting further from what will become the sheep nation of France. Alexander Gauland added that it was good for Paris to share the common currency, “but if it will not or cannot afford that economically, then one must find other structures.”

What other structures? Besides the coming split between Germany and France, recent reports show that German Air Force is reportedly having its own section at the Turkish Incirlik Air Base regardless that Turkey has gone to such low that it is now refusing entry to any foreign journalists and they are doing it without providing any explanation for its actions.

The Muslim immigration has played the agent for a major shift in Europe. Even in Austria reports reveal:

The migrant crisis has divided the country and, in a major U-turn, the government, who initially backed German chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy, shut Austria’s borders.”

Things are shifting in Austria where the conservative right are gaining momentum:

Norbert Hofer, the candidate for Austria’s right-wing Freedom Party (FPÖ), won 36.4 per cent of the vote”.

Is it possible that Germany resorted to its historic evils and have brought in the Muslim immigrants to create a shift? The leading power in Austria are “anti-immigrant and anti-European Union”. Austria is now even mimicking the U.S. where “gun ownership has been on the rise in Austria” as result of Muslim immigration. Showing the far right’s growing confidence in Europe, Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s National Front, hailed a “beautiful result”, writing on Twitter: “Bravo to the Austrian people”. FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache said:

This is the beginning of a new political era. Today political history is being written in Austria.”

We have been telling you this before. Even in the U.S. from when Donald Trump first announced his desire to run with as low as 4% approval, we went against the tide and accurately predicted his rise over a year ago. Westerners get super tired of traditional parties.

Hope is on the horizon, but this will take a decade or so and will not be easy.

And in France, which is the Eurozone’s second-biggest economy, bested only by Germany, it has been struggling to reduce both its national debt and an unemployment rate of 10.2 percent. French President Francois Hollande’s latest labor reforms were not met with enthusiasm in the country, which has seen a wave of violent protests rolling through Paris, Nantes and other cities.

In France, one of our main focus nations, French voters, like in the U.S. are also disenchanted with traditional political parties setting the course of the country’s future and that of splitting from the European Union as a whole.

WHAT LAYS AHEAD

It will take several years for sheep nations to split from goat nations. While the splits begin as result of national interest, it will take time and much turmoil to revive its Christian spirit which will only happen as gold is refined–through fire. This fire will be an internal revolution with Islam. It was France that was the forerunners to the European Union. The French however are stiff-necked and always guarded their national sovereignty’s jealously rejecting initiatives that could weaken France’s autonomy refusing to create a European Defense Community.

One nation out of several, that the wise French Yves Dupont, the collector of saintly prophecies after studying volumes from reputable saints said that it will be from “France that the Great King, according to all prophecies, will begin his work” to defeat the invasion from Hagar (Islam):

“… Then will the people of the half-moon of the tribe of Agar … will stay three years destroying everything. Yet, in the third year, will one of the unconquerable Eagles who reigns over the enlightened nation between the Rhine and the North Sea” [France].

Revolution will break out in Italy almost at the same time as in France. For some time, the Church will be without a Pope. England, too, will have much to suffer

Even Ezekiel speaks of “the young lions” (from Europe and the U.S.) speaking out against Gog (Ezekiel 38:13). One must wonder why God gave us types of fulfillment in past history to be replicated in the coming war with Islam when France under Charles Martel (the Hammer), who stopped Abdul-Rahman Al-Ghafiqi at the battle of Pottier. Christianity, like the Old Testament is not void of the heroism of the older hammer, the Maccabees (Maccabee literally means ‘hammer’). Christianity is the continuation of true Judaism all with its heroic action. The Church is not just singing hymnals.

This will be repeated when “Hagar/Agar” as Monk Hilarion predicted, will rise again. John also predicted as well in Revelations, with the “wounded beast,” and for over three years (as Daniel also predicted) will rain hell on earth to desecrate the Christian Communion.

France is concerned about the political influence that its neighbor’s economic power Germany has yielded after the eurozone crisis especially that Germany has become Europe’s political beacon.

But despite Germany’s rise, France is still a fundamentally wealthy nation whose global reach knows no rival in Europe and is blessed to have some of the highest birthrates in Europe and in time it will probably have the largest population on the Continent. God is planning this for a reason.

And with the largest Muslim community in Western Europe, France will soon explode into nationalism and bloody civil unrest as a reaction to the role of Muslims in Europe. And as Germany will keep relations with Turkey, and if and when the E.U under Germany receives Turkey with open arms, this will flood whatever is left of the E.U with Muslim immigration where Germany eventually will elect a clandestine Muslim Obama type just as we had in the U.S.

As the bridge between Northern and Southern Europe falls, France will continue to play an important role on the Continent. Why France is crucial is that France is the bridge between northern Europe and southern Europe just as Turkey (the gatekeeper to the Black and Mediterranean seas) is the bridge between Asia and Europe.

And as we see Muslim immigration into the western promised land splitting southern Europe from northern, France becomes a key player since without it, there cannot be a unified Europe.

France is the focus of so many predictions where it will face Germany. This will start by an Obama like-figure elected in Germany. This is not far-fetched. Who would have ever dreamt that the most powerful nation on earth would be ruled by a clandestine Muslim named Barack son of Hussein bin Obama who was well disguised as Christian? The Muslims have caught up with this brilliant tactic and a repeat of this could happen in Germany. In fact, it is etched in an Old Saxon prediction which talks of an Obama-like figure who claims Christianity yet he is a Turk and will rule Germany while France will refine to combat this axis of evil:

The Dog shall enter Germany but shall afterwards forsake his master and choose for himself a new man, whereby Scripture shall be fulfilled. This Dog shall signify the Turk which shall forsake his Mohammed and choose unto him the name Christian, which is a sign the day of doom is at hand, when all the earth is subject unto God, or that all people acknowledge one only God. The Fleur-de-Lys (lily) and France shall live long at variance, but at last agree. Then shall the clear Word spring forth and flourish throughout the world.”

What the signs tell us from the news are the same signs that are showing from prophecy. France has so many saints predict will rise to shine while Germany will collaborate with the Muslim as they did in the days of the Calvinists and later with Hitler.

So will the European Union collapse?

SheepGoats

No. It will shift. Thank God for France’s stiff-neckedness refusing to accept German leadership. Germany will become more belligerent and outspoken and much less willing to compromise on matters of Muslim immigration and EU integration while France will oppose. Turkey will use European anxiety with Muslim migrant flows to reinforce its foothold in Europe, especially with Germany as it did in the past.

And since France and Germany are the two pillars of the European Union, with France’s distancing itself, this will force Germany to seek another pillar: Turkey.

Germany is not conservative and even the conservatives there are no answer wanting France, Italy and Spain to split, while on the other hand, Merkel runs an oxymoron: a Protestant Christian Democratic Union.

This is why we must not be enamored when we read labels that have “Christian”. Christ in Matthew 25 is dividing Christendom sheep from goat nations. The goats will also claim to be Christian.

Therefore, we as true Christians must choose wisely as we see the tug everywhere. As we will soon see in the next coming years, the Franco‐German relationship showing signs of cracking, this Germany will then soon bring this new ally Turkey where we will see the axis of evil: the Antichrist.

So whatever remains of the European Union will cause Turkey to become the catapult for Muslim immigration to further flood Christendom’s sons of Sarah with Islamdom’s sons of Hagar.

France, which will be a sheep nation, shares ideals in common with Italy and Spain where they will shed liberalism while Germany will become darker by the day. And if in doubt, and you have ample time on your hands, study our careful analysis of Germany by clicking here.

If one follows these prophecies, Belgium will split, north Italy from southern Italy, Spain could also have a split which it is already doing as I write. In Europe Separatism and Regionalism is a growing phenomenon. Europe’s artificial construct and the French aren’t so keen on Germans telling them it’s time to lose their sovereignty. Many European states reject Germany’s control with its Baltic and European sidekicks.

The way prophecy works is simple. Nationalism is God made planed right after the Tower of Babel stopping any One World Order attempts. The Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese and even the English are feeling enormous closeness to Tsipras of Greece where northern Europe is polarized against southern Europe.

The French sociologist and political scientist at the National Institute of Demographic Studies in Paris, Emmanuel Todd, probably one of the highest authorities on the subject states:

The political strongholds of the German Social Democrats are in the Protestant regions of Germany. They are even further to the north, even more antagonistic toward the “merry-go-round Catholics” of the continent’s south. In the end, what it comes down to is not at all a left-right conflict, it is a cultural conflict as ancient as Europe itself … On the other side there is the Europe that is more inclined toward the Lutheran world; which is the world of two-thirds of Germany, most of the Baltic and Scandinavian countries, and you might add to it the Polish sidekick; even though Poland is Catholic, it never belonged to the Roman Empire. Really, what is surfacing is something extraordinarily deep.”

There will be splits even within states. Today we have Catalonia, which is fighting for its sovereignty from Spain. This is no longer theory or just unfulfilled prophecy but is already in process. In September of 2015, the coalition of regional separatists won in the elections to the regional parliament. (62 places out of 135). In November, the parliament of Catalonia accepted the resolution of independence of Catalonia from Spain (according to the resolution, within 18 months Catalonia will secede from Spain, during this 18 months the necessary government structures of a new state will be created in Catalonia and a new constitution will be written).

In Italy the “Lega Nord” party, since 1994, are anti-American pro-Russia which has been fighting for the independence of the north regions from the south. The United States push for nations to be under NATO has a backlash in nations like Serbia which fears American and Turkish influence from NATO.

When these prophecies are examined a few years ago, no one would have imagined that in the future, ancient bloodlines will cling together. And this will not only be in Europe. Turkey will cling to Iran for half of Iran are Azeri Turks. How else will Ezekiel 38 be fulfilled with Turkey and Persia uniting? Russian-Iranian relations are begging to distance while Arian Iran will cling with Arian Germany so that God will fulfill His Coming Chastisement.

The prophecies (explained here and here) tell us that:

revolution will spread to every French town”. “Wholesale slaughter will take place. This revolution will last only a few months but it will be frightful, blood will flow everywhere because the malice of the wicked will reach its highest pitch. Victims will be innumerable. Paris will look like a slaughter-house. Persecutions against the Church will be even greater but it will not last long…” (The Ecstatic of Tours, a nun from Tours, France where her prophecies were published in 1882)

France has a high population of Muslims. When the Roman Empire was seized by the Ottoman when Constantinople fell in 1453 AD, this according to Islam fulfilled Muslim prophecy when they say “first Constantinople” (in Muslim view on their version of prophecy) and now comes “then Rome”, this will be the second seize of Europe itself through the “flood” “from the mouth of the red dragon” (Turkey) spoken of by St. John in Revelation 11-12. Who would have dreamt this two decades ago when we told you it will happen in the coming future and now we see the signs?

Many prophecy enthusiasts await a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem by Israel. What many of these miss are prophecies by the ancient church. St. Hippolytus as far back as 236 AD, said:

Christ showed His flesh as a Temple, and raised it up on the third day; and he, too, will raise up again the Temple of stone in Jerusalem.”

It is “Christ” who will build a temple in Jerusalem and not the Tribulation Jews as commonly thought.

It is time to abandon popular chatter. For now, it is the body that is the temple which Antichrist desecrates by imposing a mark on the “wing of the temple” (Christian body) which is the “right shoulder” marking it with the standard of Islam.

We should not take these prophecies lightly. St. Hippolytus’ grandfather who was old enough to remember the Apostle John who wrote of the Antichrist “The Great Gaulish Monarch, who shall subject all the East, shall come around the end of the world.” He first subjects “all the east” (the Muslim). Many when they see “Gaulish” focus on central Europe (“Noric”) but the Gaulish also includes the Balkans, and Asia Minor (“Galatian”), that is Turkey.

Figuring out the sheep vs. goat nations can easily be estimated based on a nation’s atheism, liberalism, socialism, antisemitism and the sympathy for Islam. Germany, Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine are of the goats while France, parts of Italy and parts of Spain are sheep.

God is in the business of doing amazing things that goes contrary to the efforts of man no matter how much you think they are succeeding. While France is weaker than Germany and the north is stronger than the south, here comes God Who says otherwise:

But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the wise; and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the strong.

5 of The Biggest Threats Facing Black People Today

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 23, 2013

1: Modern Arab Slave Trade

A_slave_market_in_Cairo

Africa has been devastated economically, socially, politically, and demographically from a combined 13 centuries of chattel slavery at the hands of Europeans and Arabs that involved the removal of 35 million people from their native land, according to some estimates.

Although slavery has been legally abolished, African people are still subjected to chattel slavery in 2013. Anti-slavery International reports that over 50,000 Africans have been sold and owned by Arabs in North Africa. An estimated 660,000 people are subjected to forced labor in sub-Saharan Africa.

In the northwestern African country of Mauritania, a system now exists by which Arab Muslims—called the Bidanes (masters) who disdain physical work—still hold Haratine (enslaved Africans) as property. An estimated 90,000 Mauritanians remain essentially enslaved.

Haratine mothers do not own their children; they are instead passed down through their masters’ estates. Captives are bought and sold, given as wedding gifts, and traded for camels, trucks, or guns. The enslaved Africans perform domestic work, haul water, and shepherd cattle.

Sudan has seen a resurgence of slavery since 1983. During the second Sudanese civil war, as many as 200,000 people had been taken into slavery. The indigenous ethnic groups in South Sudan are often attacked by North African Arabs, who kill men and imprison children and women as slaves. Physical maiming is not uncommon and is usually done to the captives to instill fear and prevent escape.

According to CBS News, slaves have been sold for $50 per person. Many of the perpetrators of these atrocities are mixed-race and Arabized Blacks who have completely rejected their African identities and murder and enslave in the interest of Arabs.

Slavery also occurs in a number of other African countries including Somalia, Mali, Niger, and Chad.

2. Neocolonialism in Africa by the US, European countries, Arab Nations and China

NeoCol

American, Chinese, Arab and European powers have embarked on a new scramble for Africa, targeting its natural resources.

The Chinese are traveling to Africa in large numbers, with over 1 million Chinese citizens on the continent already and more arriving daily. Angola alone has a Chinese population of over 350,000.

China’s direct investment in Africa today exceeds $50 billion, but most of the profits are returned to China and do not largely benefit the people of the African nations.

The presence of the United States is also expanding. The Pentagon’s Africa Command suggests there is one military base on the continent, but according to sources, the U.S. military is at work throughout Africa in base construction, security cooperation engagements, training exercises, advisory deployments, special operations missions, and a growing logistics network – all undeniable evidence of expansion to secure its interests there.

Arab expansionists in Sudan are currently killing native Africans in Darfur and Nubia to grab land and resources and make way for Arabs outside the continent to resettle there. Over the past 50 to 60 years, Arabs have killed or enslaved millions of Africans, seizing land from them and displacing them in their efforts.

3. Black Tribalism (Lack of Solidarity)

Tirbalism

The negative effects of tribalism permeate Black people in the Americas, Caribbean and within African nations. In Africa alone, there are over 3,000 distinct tribes and resulting conflicts have caused  millions of deaths, trauma and displacement. In 1994, an estimated 1 million Rwandans were killed in the battle between the Tutsi and the Hutu. In the Americas and in parts of the Caribbean, tribalism also plays out in the form of Black-on-Black gang violence.

The major issue stemming from tribalism among Black people is that it causes a lack of solidarity.  Europeans and Asians have all but eradicate thousands of years of tribalism and have been able to unify and achieve major advancements. They understood the importance of binding together for success.  Black people have been unable to accomplish this unity and so the Black world today is often divisive leading to  mediocre governments, poor military defense, weak economies and other issues.

Black tribalism is also part of the reason why Europeans and Asians have been able to take advantage of Blacks politically, economically and physically. For example, the colonial Belgian government began actively promoting tensions between the Hutu and Tutsi after World War I when it took control of Rwanda.

4. Falsification of African Consciousness

AfroPride

In his book, “Falsification of African Consciousness,” Dr. Amos Wilson offers an analysis of the current state of Black people’s collective consciousness and how it prevents them from developing solutions to their collective problems.

Wilson defines consciousness in terms of three elements:

Contents – beliefs, opinions, knowledge, perceived knowledge, self-perceptions, worldview, conditioned responses.

Instrumentalities – how we process the contents in our mind.

Directional Organization  – how we use our consciousness to pursue goals; the values we hold; and the reasons behind our thoughts.

Via his analysis, Wilson concludes that white supremacy has altered the consciousness of Black people by giving us fabricated contents: a false history, false knowledge and false fantasies. Therefore, our ability to think and act in our own interests has been impaired because we have become confused about what knowledge is, who it belongs to, and how it should be used.

Today, because of propaganda intended to influence our thinking, many Black people perceive racism only in terms of prejudice and discrimination. Therefore we are focused on the consumption of goods we think will get other people to like and respect us, while neglecting the acquisition of real power to dominate and control our own affairs.

5. Underdevelopment and Lack of Security

Ediget

Twenty-five hundred years of invasion, conquest, slavery, and colonization have led to the severe underdevelopment of the African continent. Many economists argue that the physical infrastructure of African, Latin American and Caribbean nations are insufficient to maintain favorable economic development.

Physical infrastructure refers mainly to public transportation ( roads, highways, railroads, ports, airports, etc.), telecommunications, potable water and electric energy systems, sanitation, schools, and hospitals.

Adequate infrastructure is the foundation for economic development and the elimination of poverty. Its absence  places limitations on a region’s international competitiveness, trade opportunities, and foreign investment.

The African continent, the second largest on earth, is more immense than the United States, China, India and the European Union combined. Enormous distances combined with poor infrastructure hampers the intercommunication and the development of ties between African nations, which also consist of diverse ethnic groups.

Unity in Africa is challenging under these circumstances. This is unlike Europe, which is only one-third the size of Africa and whose population have been unified by Christianity for almost 2,00o years.

Economic, social, and political development in Africa and the Diaspora is essential to Black unity, which  is absolutely necessary if we are to effectively address major world forces that threaten the Black world.

It was a neglect of collective security that made it possible for other groups to divide, conquer, enslave, and colonize Black people repeatedly over the last 2,000 years. Building a Black world collective security system is, therefore, of vital importance for our dignity, self-respect and more importantly, our survival.
