Letter floats Magnitsky sanctions among other measures if the situation doesn’t improve

A letter from two members of the US House of Representatives is urging the Biden administration to take action on Tigray.

Congress placed increased pressure on the Biden administration over the pressing humanitarian situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia this week, urging it to move more forcefully and impose sanctions on the involved parties, including Addis Ababa.

A bipartisan letter from Gregory Meeks, Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and ranking Republican member Michael McCaul was dispatched on Tuesday evening to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen calling for sanctions on those fuelling the fighting in Tigray.

Ongoing fighting since November between Ethiopian troops and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front has left more than 50,000 dead and has displaced hundreds of thousands, according to Ethiopia’s three opposition parties.

The UN estimated on Tuesday that 2.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, while human rights organisations have reported mass atrocities, incidents of rape and extrajudicial killings.

Last week, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed admitted to the presence of Eritrean troops in Tigray fighting on the side of his government and committed to their withdrawal from the region, but so far there hasn’t been movement in that direction.

Congress is urging the Biden administration to do more in its bid to end the fighting.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms reported atrocities and gross violations of human rights committed against civilians, including rape, torture, forced displacements and disappearances, acts of ethnic cleansing, extrajudicial killings, the looting and destruction of medical facilities and restricted access to aid,” Mr Meeks and Mr McCaul wrote in their letter.

“We urge the [Biden] administration to utilise all available tools, including Global Magnitsky authorities and other targeted sanctions, to hold parties accountable for their actions and bring an end to this crisis,” the letter added.

The Magnitsky sanctions can be used to punish human rights abuses in accordance with the Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act passed by Congress in 2012.

The letter implicates all sides in such abuses and stresses that “additional targeted accountability measures cannot wait”.

It also threatens problems for the future of US-Ethiopia bilateral relations if the situation does not improve.

“While we remain committed to the important bilateral relationship between the United States and Ethiopia, this conflict jeopardises shared political, economic and security priorities,” the two representatives wrote.

The Biden administration delinked in February a suspension of $272 million in aid to Ethiopia for the Nile dam crisis and tied it instead to current “developments”, including the Tigray conflict.

Mr Blinken described the situation in Tigray as “ethnic cleansing” speaking to Congress in March, and on Tuesday he referenced sexual assaults and continued killings in the region.

“The report we’re releasing today shows that the trend lines on human rights continue to move in the wrong direction … We see it in the killings, sexual assaults and other atrocities credibly reported in Ethiopia’s Tigray region,” Mr Blinken said during the launch of the State Department’s annual human rights report.

Cameron Hudson, a senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Africa Centre, argued that Washington is following a gradual approach in ratcheting up the pressure on Ethiopia.

“We [the US] have already suspended our development assistance and our security assistance. Those moves seem to have very little impact in changing [Addis Ababa’s] approach to the conflict in Tigray. The next level of pressure is clearly going to be direct punitive measures,” Mr Hudson told The National.

The letter, addressed to Mr Blinken and copied to Ms Yellen, is an indication of potential sanctions by the departments of State and Treasury.

“This likely will translate into sanctions unless Washington starts to see greater movement on the key issues it is asking for changes on, namely the withdrawal of Eritrean and Amhara forces, the launch of the international human rights investigation, unhindered humanitarian access and some sort of domestic political dialogue,” Mr Hudson said.

On the role of Treasury specifically, Mr Hudson, saw the possibility of the US delaying or denying third party aid to Ethiopia.

“The Treasury does two big things that affect US policy on Ethiopia: It administers US sanctions and it controls the US vote at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) … The US has leverage in denying or delaying Ethiopia multilateral financing and assistance and not just bilateral assistance.”

In its report on Tuesday, the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said 2.2 million people are in need of aid and “approximately 1.3 million children need protective services and safe education­ in Tigray and neighbouring areas”.

The body expressed concern over reports of violations of human rights and rape in the Tigray region.

“There are more than 500 self-reported rape cases so far,” it said.

U.S. Presses Ethiopia to End Tigray Violence, Protect Civilians

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 2, 2021

Blinken Speaks With Ethiopian Leader About Human Rights Concerns in Tigray

Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday spoke with Ethiopia’s prime minister to express concerns over escalating violence and human rights violations in the country’s Tigray region and offer U.S. assistance to help resolve the conflict.

Blinken urged Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed “to take immediate, concrete steps to protect civilians, including refugees, and to prevent further violence,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement. “Secretary Blinken also asked that the Government of Ethiopia work with the international community to facilitate independent, international, and credible investigations into reported human rights abuses and violations and to hold those responsible accountable.”

The secretary also reiterated calls for the immediate withdrawal from Tigray of Eritrean forces and forces from the region of Amhara in northwest Ethiopia, according to Price.

Ethiopia’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this week, Ethiopia criticized Blinken for seeking a withdrawal of outside forces from Tigray.

“It should be clear that such matters are the sole responsibility of the Ethiopian government,” Ethiopia’s foreign ministry said in a statement issued Sunday, according to The Associated Press. The statement added that no foreign country should try to “dictate a sovereign nation’s internal affairs.”

Ethiopian federal forces in recent weeks have routed Tigray opposition figures from the region that in November sought to put its own leaders in regional government positions, against the wishes of the central government in the capital Addis Ababa.

Abiy, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 for reaching a peace agreement with neighboring Eritrea after 16 years of war, has come under international scrutiny for his government’s actions in Tigray.

The United Nations recently said that the humanitarian situation in Tigray is critical amid intensified fighting, with nearly 100,000 displaced and 1.3 million people in need of aid because of the conflict.

The conflict has drawn international concern over the fate of vulnerable civilians and refugees, as well as condemnation over reported atrocities.

Last week, Amnesty International and The Associated Press published new findings that Eritrean forces, allied with the Ethiopian army, instituted a brutal massacre in the Tigray city of Axum in late November, considered one of the holiest cities in Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity.

Amnesty International said in the report that “many hundreds” were killed in the city by the Eritrean army that engaged in widespread looting and extrajudicial killings, “deliberately and wantonly” shooting at civilians during the worst of the violence.

The AP estimated that between 300 and 800 people were likely killed, and that bodies lay in the streets for days as Eritrean forces barred residents from collecting their loved ones.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the U.S. would raise the issue of alleviating humanitarian concerns in Ethiopia this month under its leadership of the U.N. Security Council.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, also responded to the massacre reports calling for “decisive action” by the Biden administration to hold those accountable for any atrocities committed.

“The horrors detailed in the reports coming out of the Tigray region are incredibly concerning and I am looking into them further,” he said in a statement last week.

“For far too long, the government of Ethiopia and other armed actors have blocked access by journalists and independent monitors to investigate these chilling accounts. I urge the Biden Administration to take decisive action to hold those accountable for any atrocities committed.”

Ethiopia’s P.M. Abiy Ahmed Denounced as “War Criminal” by Tigrayans at U.N. Protest

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 13, 2021

የትግራይ ተወላጆች ተቃውሞ ሰልፍ በተባበሩት መንግስታት ዋና መሥሪያ ቤት፤ ኒው ዮርክ፤የጦር ወንጀለኛው አብይ አህመድ ባፋጣኝ ይታሰር!”

የታላቁ ኒው ዮርክ የጥቁር ህይወት ጉዳይ መስራች ሀውክ ኒውሰም እንዲህ በማለት የዓለም አቀፍ ማህበረሰቦችን ዝምታ አውግዘዋል፤ “በትግራይ የሚካሄደው የጅምላ ግድያው እና የአስገድዶ መደፈር ተጎጂዎች ነጮች ቢሆኑ ኖሮ እስከአሁን ጣልቃ መግባት ይቻል ነበር።”

Hawk Newsome, the co-founder of the Greater New York chapter of Black Lives Matter, was a speaker and denounced the international communities silence. He said if the victims of the mass killings and rapes were white, there would have been an intervention by now.

About 1,000 people who hail from Ethiopia’s Tigray region braved the New York chilly temperature to converge on the United Nations Thursday to denounce the invasion of their region by federal troops, which occurred about 100 days ago.

They gathered across from U.N. headquarters at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan.

The protest, billed as “100 Days of Genocide,” brought Tigrayans from allover the U.S., with some flying in from California. While most demonstrators delivered denunciations against Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and his ally Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki, others drove a convoy of cars draped in Tigrayan colors, in New York’s streets. The drivers blared horns while repeatedly “Stand With Tigray,” and calling Abiy and Afwerki “murderers.”

Abiy has laid siege on Tigray, cutting off communications, including a total internet shutdown as well as transportation stoppage. Agricultural production has been disrupted in the region due to the war, which reportedly including bombing of civilians by the Ethiopian air force. Without food shipments, there are reports of ongoing mass starvation deaths, including of children. As many as 4.5 million people could face starvation if the blockade doesn’t end, demonstrators said. Tigrayans make up about six million of Ethiopia’s 112 million population.

The demonstrators’ demands include: the immediate creation of a humanitarian corridor to shipment of food, water, other relief supplies, and physicians into the cordoned off war zone; withdrawal of Eritrean troops that have intervened to support Abiy; and, an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of alleged crimes against humanity by the federal Ethiopian soldiers, and the Eritreans.

There have been widespread reports of atrocities, including weaponizing rape, the use of starvation to punish people in the Tigray region, and the indiscriminate killing of unarmed civilians by federal soldiers, and the Eritrean military. There are also reports of targeted infrastructure damage, including attacks on ancient churches and mosques.

Ethiopia and Eritrea once fought a very bloody, bitter war, over disputed boundaries. The two nations were then in a state of cold war for decades, with borders closed. When Abiy was appointed interim prime minister in April 2018, he surprised many people by opening up the political space in Ethiopia and reaching out to Eritrea’s ruler Isaias Afwerki to normalize relations. As a result of his trailblazing ways Abiy was awarded the nobel peace prize in 2019. Many of his critics now believe the prime minister repaired relations with Eritrea knowing all along that he’d need them to side with him in an attack against Tigray that he’d long planned. Some are now demanding that the nobel prize award be rescinded.

Many demonstrators held placards emblazoned with photos of Afwerki, with the words “Wanted—War Criminal.” Other posters read, “Stop War On Tigray,” “#Tigray Genocide,” “Stop Killing Innocent People,” “Stop Tigray Genocide,” “Time To Arrest Abiy Ahmed.”

The Eritreans have also built alliances with local activists. Hawk Newsome, the co-founder of the Greater New York chapter of Black Lives Matter, was a speaker and denounced the international communities silence. He said if the victims of the mass killings and rapes were white, there would have been an intervention by now.

A spokesperson for Americans who are former Peace Corps volunteers in Ethiopia also denounced the blockade and called for humanitarian aid to be allowed.

A Tigrayan-born New Yorker, a design associate at an architectural firm, shared the reasons why he joined his compatriots at the protest. “We want Eritrea to get out of Tigray. We want our women not to be raped. We want our churches not to be bombed. We want them to be places of worship, and we want our mosques not to be bombed,” he said.

Charlotte Phillips, an American activist with the organization Brooklyn For Peace, who held a sign that read “Abiy Ahmed: End the Tigray War, Famine, Killings, Looting,” denounced the invasion of Tigray.

“What’s happening in Tigray is totally unacceptable. We want the Security Council to get the U.N. to stop it,” Phillips said. “The international press has not been allowed to go in to report. There has been no access to humanitarian aid and this also is unacceptable.”

“We’ve heard of murders, of rapes going on, of violence against civilians by the Ethiopian soldiers and Eritrean soldiers,” she added.

BOMBSHELL UN Dossier | UN Aid Workers Raped 60,000 People as It’s Claimed Organisation Employs 3,300 Paedophiles

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 16, 2018

ይህን ሲዖል የሚያስገባ ቅሌት በአገራችንም ክጥንት ጀምሮ ሲፈጽሙት ቆይተዋል። በእርዳታ ስም ሞኙን ሕዝባችንን እያታለሉ ነፍሳቸውን ለመንጠቅ ሞክረዋል፤ ሁልጊዜ ችግር የሚፈጥሩብን ለምን ይመስለናል? የተባበሩት መንግሥታት ድርጅቶች፣ የአፍሪቃው ህብረት ተቋማትና የመሳሰሉት ሉሲፈራውያኑ የመሠረቷቸው ድርጅቶች መቀመጫ አዲስ አበባ እንድትሆን መመረጧ ለምን ይመስለናል?

The dossier claims United Nations aid workers have raped 60,000 people and estimate that the organisation employs 3,300 paedophiles

A WHISTLE blower has claimed UN staff could have carried out 60,000 rapes in the last decade as aid workers indulge in sex abuse unchecked around the world.

The claim is in a bombshell dossier that former senior United Nations official Andrew Macleod handed over to DFID Secretary Priti Patel last year.

In it, Professor Macleod also estimated there are 3,300 paedophiles working for the world body’s various agencies alone.

Thousands more “predatory” sex abusers specifically target aid charity jobs to get close to vulnerable women and children.

And there has been an “endemic” cover-up of the sickening crimes for two decades, with those who attempt to blow the whistle just getting fired.

The respected academic said: “There are tens of thousands of aid workers around the world with paedophile tendencies, but if you wear a UNICEF T-shirt nobody will ask what you’re up to.

You have the impunity to do whatever you want.

It is endemic across the aid industry across the world”.

The system is at fault, and should have stopped this years ago.”

Professor MacLeod worked as an aid boss for the UN all over the world, including high profile jobs in the Balkans, Rwanda and Pakistan – where he was chief of operations of the UN’s Emergency Coordination Centre.

He is campaigning for far tougher checks on aid workers in the field as well as the abusers among them to be brought to justice, and wants the UK to lead the fight.

The professor’s grim 60,000 figure is based on UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’s admission last year that UN peacekeepers and civilian staff abused 311 victims in just one 12 month period over 2016.

The UN also admits that the likely true number of cases reported against its staff is double that, as figures outside of war zones are not centrally collated.

Prof MacLeod also estimates that only one in 10 of all rapes and assaults by UN staff are reported, as even in the UK the reporting rate is just 14 per cent.

UN Chief Compares Populist Success of Trump and Farage to Islamic State

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 9, 2016

Nigel Farage and Donald Trump are “populists and demagogues” using tactics comparable to Islamic State (IS), and the success of populism in 2016 echoes “fascist rhetoric”, the United Nation’s rights chief has said.

Jordanian aristocrat Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, the current UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, blamed populism for an alleged rise in “hate crimes” and warned of the “banalization of bigotry” in Europe, according to the Telegraph.

He also took aim at Dutch nationalist Geert Wilders, Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary, and French Front National leader Marine Le Pen in a speech this Monday at a gala dinner organized by the Hague-based Peace, Justice and Security Foundation.

2016 has been a disastrous year for human rights across the globe,” Mr. Zeid said. “If the growing erosion of the carefully constructed system of human rights and rule of law continues to gather momentum, ultimately everyone will suffer.”

He added: “In some parts of Europe, and in the United States, anti-foreigner rhetoric full of unbridled vitriol and hatred, is proliferating to a frightening degree, and is increasingly unchallenged”.

Compared right-wing populism to Islamic State terrorists, he claiming the “mode of communication, its use of half-truths and oversimplification, the propaganda of [IS] uses tactics similar to those of the populists.”

Singling out Mr. Wilders’ call to stop asylum seekers entering his country and for a ban on Muslim schools, the UN boss said the policy proposals were “grotesque” and urged the audience “to speak out and up” against them.

We will not be bullied by you the bully, nor fooled by you the deceiver, not again,” he insisted.

In a text message responding to the Telegraph’s requests for a reaction to the speech, Mr Wilders wrote: “Another good reason to get rid of the UN. I lost my freedom in my fight for freedom, and I don’t want my country to lose its freedom as well.

That’s why we have to de-Islamize. Islam and freedom are incompatible whatever this Jordanian bureaucrat says.”

This morning, Mr. Wilders was found guilty of “incitement to discrimination” by a Dutch court. He branded the trial a politically motivated “charade” that endangered freedom of speech.


Selected Comments:

  • An Arab lecturing us about human rights… Isn’t that a bit like a cannibal talking about the evils of eating meat?
  • The fact that an Arab occupies that position tells us all we need to know about the way things are going.
  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Someone from a Muslim country talking about Human Rights. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  • I’ve seen a lot of Muslims lecturing the western world recently. These morons have ruined their countries now they want ruin ours.
  • Arab political culture knows nothing but violence lies and extortion as they regularly display. Its long past time to learn from history and be real in dealing with the Barbary pirates
  • Smells like desperation
  • The UN is now a tool of islam-sharia. Time to dump it.
  • Jordanian Aristocrat my arse …First of all there’s no such thing on the planet as a “Jordanian Aristocrat” Secondly and thanks to Donald J Trump the UN will be redundant shortly

Dear Media, When ‘Peacekeepers’ Rape African Kids, Don’t Call It a “Sex-For-Food Scandal

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 2, 2015


French peacekeepers patrol in Bangui, in the Central African Republic. Members of that peacekeeping force are accused of raping young children who were desperate for food.

I have two modest proposals: 1) peacekeeping troops should not rape children, and 2) if peacekeepers do rape children, the media should go ahead and call that a “child rape scandal,” not a “sex-for-food scandal.”

Seems reasonable enough, right? After all, there are no “peacekeeper” or “food” exceptions to the moral and legal rule that children cannot consent. Adults having sex with children is rape. That is terrible enough under any circumstances, but it is particularly appalling to think of peacekeepers taking advantage of the desperate people they are supposed to be protecting.

And yet, as my friend Kate Cronin-Furman points out in a post on Wronging Rights, that turns out to be a tall order. An internal UN report that recently leaked has accused French soldiers in the Central African Republic of forcing “hungry, homeless young boys to perform sex acts on them in return for small amounts of food, water and sometimes some cash.”

For some reason, much of the international media has apparently decided to report that story as a “sex-for-food” scandal.

The idea seems to be that when peacekeepers rape children who are desperate for food, for some reason it does not actually count as rape, but rather is an exchange of food for sex. Worse, the wording suggests that by dispensing food to their victims, the rapists were merely causing a “scandal,” not committing a crime.

And this isn’t the first time this has happened. Cronin-Furman rounds up other examples of peacekeepers sexually abusing children that were also covered as “sex-for-food” stories in 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2011.

This needs to stop. When child rape occurs, the media should call it what it is. Describing such incidents as “sex for food” minimizes the gravity of the crimes, by implying that the soldiers were compensating locals for transactional sex, rather than acknowledging what they were truly doing to vulnerable children. It’s not “sex.” It’s rape.

U.N. Rebuked For ‘Apathy’ Toward Slaughtered Christians

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 23, 2015

A woman cries at a gathering for the 30 Ethiopian victims killed by members of the militant Islamic State in Libya, in the capital Addis Ababa

UNITED NATIONS – Ambassadors, businessmen and religious leaders of all faiths gathered at the United Nations in New York on Friday for a high-level summit on the persecution of Christians around the world and the threat it poses to international peace and security.

Some 200 million Christians in 60 countries have been oppressed, abused or murdered solely because they are Christian. Fourteen of the world’s 15 most repressive countries for Christians are Muslim countries. Churches are bombed, often while worshipers are inside. Christians are kidnapped, brutalized, raped, sold into sex slavery, mutilated, shot, beheaded or burned alive.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin and activist Brigitte Gabriel delivered keynote speeches. Panels of faith leaders delivered personal reports from the front lines of persecution and addressed issues including ISIS, the media’s role in the plight of persecuted Christians and what churches are doing globally to bring attention to the problem.

In his opening speech, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, best-selling author of “The Harbinger,” drew a parallel between the persecution of Christians and the case of Kitty Genovese, a New York woman who was murdered outside her apartment while her neighbors ignored her screams outside their windows.

Another crime is taking place outside our closed windows,” Cahn said.

He described Christians as “the most persecuted religious group on earth.”

They are oppressed, they afflicted, they are hunted down, they are killed men women and children, the sacrificial lambs of the modern world,” he said.

While calling for global action to stop the slaughter,Cahn told WND there is another lesson to be learned.

This is a sign of the last days,” he said. “The Bible says there will be persecution. Not only do we have to speak up for those in chains, the Bible says, but we have to realize that this is a harbinger of things to come. We have to learn from the persecuted believer how to be strong in a society and culture that is against the gospel. So we have to speak up for them, but we have to be ready to walk in their shoes.”

Donning a prayer shawl, Rabbi Cahn delivered the Hebrew blessing for those persecuted for the faith.

May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand” and bring “peace in the midst of conflict,” he said.

Watch Rabbi Cahn at the U.N.:

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and CEO of ACT for America, one of the organizers of the summit, brought the audience to tears. Growing up Christian in Lebanon where Islamists bombed her home, she learned “that only three kinds of people existed in the world: killers, victims and bystanders.”

She said her experience gave her a fierce determination to fight evil, apathy and indifference. Gabriel shocked the assembly with the story of a mother searching for her kidnapped son in ISIS-held territory.

ISIS fighters gave her some meat to eat and water to drink,” she said. “When she asked about her son, they answered laughing, ‘You’ve just eaten him.’”

But she leveled the harshest condemnation at the organization hosting the gathering.

Christians slaughtered by evil feel abandoned by humanity, forsaken by the world’s conscience and rendered dead by the apathy of the United Nations,” Gabriel said.

The United Nations’ Security Council is, as usual, impotent. And while the Human Rights Council ceaselessly foams at the mouth about perceived Israeli violations of Palestinians’ rights, it doesn’t seem to notice documented massacres of Christians by Muslims all over the world.”

Gabriel said it’s “time to call evil by its name: Islamic jihadists killing in the name of their religion.”

It’s time to throw political correctness in the garbage. It’s time to silence the apologists for evil including members of the United Nations,” she said.

The issue, she said, is actually greater than the persecution of Christians.

Radical Islamists seek to subjugate everyone who does not adhere to its version of ‘religion,’” she said. “Just because we are not at war with radical Islam does not mean that radical Islam is not at war with us. Pretending that war does not exist only ensures our defeat. The consequences of that defeat will be catastrophic for the civilized world.”

Tetanus Vaccines Found Spiked with Sterilization Chemical to Carry out Race-based Genocide Against Africans

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 12, 2014

making_vaccines-600x540Tetanus vaccines given to millions of young women in Kenya have been confirmed by laboratories to contain a sterilization chemical that causes miscarriages, reports the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, a pro-vaccine organization.

A whopping 2.3 million young girls and women are in the process of being given the vaccine, pushed by UNICEF and the World Health Organization.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

United Nations, WHO and UNICEF all engaged in vaccination genocide

You will not see this news reported by any mainstream media outlet in the United States. All truth about vaccines is censored, even if the truth is that the United Nations is deliberately engaged in a campaign of vaccine genocide against people of Africa.

What is happening in Kenya is a crime against humanity, and it is a crime committed with deliberate racial discrimination. Normally, the liberal media in the United States would be all over a story involving racial discrimination and genocide — or even a single police shooting of a black teenager — but because this genocide is being committed with vaccines, the entire mainstream media excuses it. Apparently, medical crimes against black people are perfectly acceptable to the liberal media as long as vaccines are used as the weapon.

As this story clearly demonstrates, “vaccine violence” is very real in our world. Vaccines are the perfect weapon for population control for several reasons:

1) Nobody really knows what’s in them.

2) They can be easily spiked with hidden chemicals.

3) They can be administered under the cover of “public health.”

4) All governments and establishment media will deliberately collaborate with the genocide in order to protect vaccines from being recognized as medical weapons against women.

Thus, vaccines can be routinely used to inject populations with birth control chemicals or even stealth cancer viruses. In fact, this is exactly what happened to as many as 98 million Americans during the mass polio vaccinations of the 1960’s and 70’s. The CDC even documented the “accidental” injection of millions of Americans with the cancer-causing SV40 simian virus, but the agency scrubbed all that history from its website in 2013.

In Kenya today, government authorities also claim the sterilization chemical was an “accidental” contamination. That’s the excuse that can always be used as a cover story in weaponized vaccination schemes, where governments deliberately taint vaccines with known chemicals that end life, promote cancer or cause spontaneous abortions.

Vaccines as weapons = Medical crimes against humanity

The deliberate adding of HCG to vaccines without full disclosure to the population is a heinous violation of human rights and human dignity. Here are just a few of the crimes now being committed against humanity under the guise of vaccinations:

CRIME #1) No informed consent. None of these women in Kenya were told the truth that they were being injected with a sterilization chemical designed to cause infertility.

CRIME #2) Race-based genocide. The targeting of Kenyan women with this vaccine is a deliberate selection based on their race. By any reasonable standard, this would be called a racially-motivated hate crime resulting in genocide.

CRIME #3) The deliberate killing of a human being. The spontaneous abortions caused by these HCG-spiked vaccines results in the ending of a human life inside the mother’s body. These killings take place without the consent or permission of the mother, nor any opportunity for defense of the life of the unborn child.

CRIME #4) Violation of Geneva Convention limitations on medical experimentation. All these Kenyan women injected with this vaccine are being used as human guinea pigs in a covert, criminal medical experiment. None of these women voluntarily signed up for this medical experiment, nor were they even informed. This is a medical crime against human beings.

CRIME #5) Crimes against women. Only women were selected for this targeted sterilization vaccine effort, proving that this is not only a race-based crime but also a gender-based crime against women.

If you add all this up, you’ve got weaponized vaccines being intentionally spiked with a known sterilization chemical developed by the WHO, then deployed in a racially-motivated genocidal manner that targets women to be used in an illegal medical experiment administered via vaccine inoculations.

When administered via vaccines, genocide and murder are apparently not news

Yet, despite all this, the mainstream media is perfectly okay with this activity. The World Health Organizations endorses it. The United Nations organizes it. Governments help fund it. Vaccine-pushing scientists excuse it. Media outlets cover it up and censor the story, hoping you don’t read Natural News or Life Site News to learn the truth.

When pharmacies in your neighborhood push flu shots and other vaccines, they don’t tell you they are part of a branch of medicine steeped in genocide, racially-motivated hate crimes and a medical war on women. They don’t tell you that flu shots still contain toxic mercury at concentrations 100 times the mercury found in ocean fish. They don’t tell you anything about what’s in those vaccines for the same reason that women in Kenya are never told what’s in them, either.

The five vectors for destroying humanity

These are the vectors for the science-based genocidal assault on humanity:

1) Vaccines

2) Viruses

3) Food

4) Water

5) Chemtrails (i.e. atmospheric deployment of chemicals)

The Destabilization of Africa. A Machiavellian Intrigue of Colossal Proportions

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 12, 2014

AfricanWarsOn December 24th 2013, the United Nations Security Council voted to increase peacekeeping forces in South Sudan, whose independence from the North US-NATO powers celebrated only recently.  Democratic elections in South Sudan did not, however, lead to peace and stability.  Now, two ethnic groups, in South Sudan, the Dinka and Nuer are slaughtering each other.  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated:

We have reports of horrific attacks.  Innocent civilians are being targeted because of their ethnicity.  This is a grave violation of human rights, which could fuel a spiral of civil unrest across the country.”

South Sudan, which contains vast oil reserves, borders Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Spread of its crisis would further destabilize a significant part of Africa.  Clearly, Western-style “democratic elections,” the panacea touted by Western agencies such as National Endowment for Democracy, and related Western NGOs, have not only failed to provide stability and enhanced standards of living for many countries where they have been implemented  (or imposed, militarily by US-NATO intervention, such as in Iraq and Libya and Afghanistan), but are beginning to appear to be the precursor of ethnic and social violence and disintegration in many notable instances in Africa, and not only in Africa.

On September 20, 2013, at the opulent Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya endured a deadly terrorist attack that slaughtered more than 40 people, including several Europeans.  The Al Qaeda affiliated Shabab, the Islamic jihadist group based in Somalia took responsibility for the attack, ostensibly in reprisal for Kenya’s participation in the African Union’s mission to combat Shabab’s domination of large areas of Somalia.

Less than two months later, in Security Council action – or more accurately described – inaction) on November 15, the Security Council failed to support a resolution submitted by the African Union, in accordance with Article 16 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, to defer, for 12 months, prosecution of Kenyan President Kenyatta and Deputy-President William Ruto.  The deferral would enable President Kenyatta to concentrate his efforts on combating the terrorism that is destabilizing Kenya, terrorism by the jihadist group who imposition of barbaric Sharia law includes the burial of young girls up to their necks in sand, and then stoning these innocent children to death.

The African Union pleaded for this deferral to prevent the serious distraction of the Kenyan President’s attention from his efforts to combat this recent upsurge of terrorism in Kenya.  The Security Council failed to adopt this resolution, thereby abdicating its primary responsibility to protect peace and security.  The Security Council’s failure to adopt this African Union resolution could also be perceived as a “double message” in the effort to eliminate terrorism.  Following the vote, in explanation, each country spoke.

Not only have democratic elections failed to enhance the quality of life and standard of living in numerous African countries – and elsewhere;  Kenya is a country in which democratic elections in December 2007 unleashed horrendous inter-ethnic slaughter and violent destabilization in a country that had hitherto been a model of stability and economic and social development for Africa and the developing world.  How can the sudden eruption of such clan and tribal warfare be explained in a country that had, for decades, not undergone such violent inter-ethnic conflict and destabilization?

Recently a highly placed diplomatic source accredited to the United Nations observed a pattern emerging in African countries where western NGOs with links to U.S. intelligence were based and operating:  previously non-existent inter-ethnic violence suddenly erupted, and this phenomenon was occurring in even the most stable countries.  One of these western NGOs, in particular, was based and operating in Kenya since 2003, a full four years before the sudden eruption of inter-ethnic warfare and violent destabilization that followed the December, 2007 democratic elections.

One can only question the “coincidental” nature of these violent inter-ethnic occurrences in many previously stable African countries. Recalling that Russian President Putin prohibited USAID and particular Western NGO’s  from operating in Russia, one can only conclude that he was trying to spare Russia from the fate observed in too many African countries, and elsewhere.

This “indirect exercise of influence on dependent foreign elites” could be the hidden trigger provoking and inciting the violent ethnic and political conflict that appears to be rapidly spreading, undermining previously functioning economies and national structures and institutions.

Who benefits?  A substantial part of China’s oil supply comes from Africa.  Chinese contracts with African nations are more equitable than those of US-NATO countries, and therefore have preferential status in many African countries, with China contributing to the construction of infrastructure, and offering considerably higher payment for oil extracted.  It is, however, very much in China’s interest that internal stability prevail in these African countries, in order to perpetuate this arrangement.  Chaos, spreading terrorism, civil conflict disrupt the functioning of these arrangements, and may ultimately serve the purpose of driving China out of Africa.

In the corridors of power at the United Nations, and elsewhere, is whispered that it is part of large-scale geopolitical engineering to to disrupt and deprive China of its oil supply in Africa, thereby implementing the first part of “hegemony of a new type.”  What follows this “new type of hegemony” is a Machiavellian intrigue of colossal proportion.

Africa-Arab Forum?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 21, 2013


Saudi Arabia Calls Arab and African Nations to Pressure the U.N. Security Council To Act on Syria

I’ve no idea there’s even an Africa-Arab economic forum. What is that for? Were they discussing about a possible Arab Reparations for the present and past crimes they commit against Africans? Why don’t Africans learn to never swim together with the cunning white-dressed Sheiks/Sharks? Why wasn’t the summit boycotted by the Africans after the horrendous news about the ongoing Saudi maltreatment of poor Ethiopian immigrants was revealed to the wider public?

Nevertheless, one of the Daily Star bloggers described exactly the current state of apprehension and nervousness that the Saudi serfdom finds itself:

If Saudi wants to save what remains of Syria – they need to arrest Bandar bin Sultan, stop the Saudi & Gulf Sate individuals bankrolling of their Wahhabi savages in Syria. If House of Saud inbred royalty had a shred of integrity instead of acting like demented snakes that they are, they would also be too ashamed to accept a seat on the UN Human Rights Committee – where they are the most Orwellean members to such a concept – and show no shame in the extreme irony of submitting a resolution on Syrian govt’s ‘human rights violations’ …. although I guess the Syrian army killing their Wahhabi savage proxy army may make Bandar bin Sultan weep.

And beware Saudi – do you think your petro $ salvation of US bankruptcy will keep you immune from western turncoats forever? Or your Bibi-Bandar alliance with protect you? Best you start waking up to the fact that there are some new sheriffs in town – called Putin and Xi Ping and you best start operating within international law because your Bandar’s AlCIAda terrorist activities will not be tolerated by these new sheriffs.
