Peaceful protest my foot in your where the sun never shines, stupid Amnesty international.
The other day I heard them advocating for the Bokko arram group telling us their rights was not respected. What right? The right to blow up churches everyweekend? A right to blow up and kill innocent children and women?
How do you tell us now medling in our country’s internal issue as if we abuse the rights of the extrimist muslims? Are you telling us to wait untill they turn our peaceful nation a land of blood and terrorism?
Amnesty international for criminals and terrorists, hands off from our peaceful and prosperious nation. A stupid is what a stupid does. That’s all you’re. Losers!!!

2 days ago Amnesty international issued same type of statement in favor of Boko Haram militants of Nigeria.Both Ethiopian protesters and Bako aram are the same type of fanatic Salafi sect.The only difference between them is that Bako aram is equipped with gunnes and bombs whereas our salafists are not equipped with bomb for the time being.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL!!!! Really?! Anyone well read and informed about this pointless organization, how and why this organization established, who funds them … should not be shocked and disappointed by their ’shoot first and ask later’ policy towards Africa particularly Ethiopia! They never do this in the west where lots of human right abusing going on as well.

AMNESTY! Do you know what the different Islamic groups are asking for in Ethiopia? Do you have any data this groups have done in the name of religion freedom in Ethiopia? Do you know how they are funded and who they fund? Most importantly, What is these groups implication for national security of Ethiopia??? Any country has a right to protect its citizens by any means from outside invaders! There is no problem at all with Ethiopian government and Islam or peaceful religion. The problem is AMNESTY and it’s policy towards Ethiopia. FYI: I am not support of the present Ethiopian government!!

It has been a long time since I lost faith in Amnesty International’s sincerity and accuracy of reports. \if they can say this about the situation that i know very well, how can \I trust what they say about other countries?
Since when has peaceful demonstration become burning churches, shooting at the police, burning buses and disrupting economic activities.

Hateful and failed Amnesty International: Go to Syria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Mali, Egypt, Indonesia, and other terrorist Muslim countries and protect the minority Christians who have been unjustly humiliated, persecuted, jailed, and killed there. Don’t meddle in the Ethiopian Christian affairs: the Ethiopian Christian government has the responsibility to arrest and kill the lawless Ethiopian Jihadist Muslims. These criminal Jihadist Muslims have been plotting to overthrow the Ethiopian Christian government and to establish their own Islamic rule in the Christian land of Ethiopia. We don’t want our Christian country to be ruled by Jihadist Muslims under their barbaric Sharia law. Ethiopia will never accept an Islamic rule, an Islamic government, and an Islamic doctrine of the devil – Muhammad the false Prophet. We refuse to admit the misguided statements of Amnesty International. The Ethiopian Government has never arrested or killed any peaceful demonstrators except the lawless and extremist terrorist Muslims.

We don’t need Amnesty International to tell us what we have done and what we are going to do to our own people. We have the right to detain, to persecute, and to kill if the criminals have rejected to follow our rules and orders. We don’t want to see our country to be like Syria, Pakistan, and Mali because of these outlandish Muslim terrorists. Why doesn’t Amnesty International go to Saudi Arabia and tell the Saudi to stop exporting their Muslim terrorist Wahabbists and sending them to us to destabilize our Christian country? I can understand now Amnesty International has become the main shield of Islamist terrorists, and its main concern is to protect the criminals instead of the peace-loving civilians.

Gragn Ahmed,

Whenever you or your core values are at risk, you have the right to defend with “relevant” way possible. This applies to all mankind regardless of their religion or race.That’s it! (I am NOT Muslim, or I’m a Christian!). No one has the right to insult you, your religion or core values. Period!

But what’s your point?? Just tell me: what is the NEW and CURRENT problem you (and other Muslims) have? Something new? Just tell me, please?

Let me tell you, what I know. Even if there have been times when religious conflicts boiled in Ethiopia, there were times, as you witnessed in your post, that so called Christians murdered Muslims and Muslims also murdered Christians. If you want to cite such history so as to make your CURRENT point I dont think that’s right since much more of our history embodies mutual respect, tolerance and cooperation (and you know it!).

To be honest, I can say there is NO time in Ethiopian history that all religions, especially Muslims have enjoyed their religious rights (as byproduct of the system, at least). Thousands of Mosques have been built amongst so many Christian neighborhoods! In some parts of the country, there are much more “private” mosques than schools, health centers..etc which the Muslims also need! There has always (increasingly)been media coverage of Muslims holidays than ever before! Be it in Europe, Seattle (where you may live now) or any so called “secular” government, there is NO curfew that all Christians are “forced” to observe in every Fridays because of your “Jum’a"! So many examples I can mention, but I can see..you know it!

Does this mean everything is OK for you Muslims and you shouldn’t ask ask for (more) of your right acc to your own perception? NO! But one way we go forward is through giving merit to what has sofar been achieved! You must have given credits for these, they are also results of your effort!

Still there have been times during the current admin, where Churches have been vandalized and desecrated so were Mosques, and YOU KNOW IT! Many Muslims, as you know it, did NOT make such a strike when the police invaded the G. Anwar Mosque! I still do NOT mean that you should be silent now because you were silent then!

Like as you said there are “copts” who tend to like Israelites than their Muslim Ethiopians, there are also so many Muslims who prefer “their” Arab, Egyptian, Syrian,.. to their Ethiopian Christian brothers and sisters! You know it, but still there are lots of Christians and Muslims who would consider their fellow Ethiopian people more than any others!

But what is NEW? Come on, we know it!

It is all about religious-geopolitics!
1)Now that both the “West” and the “fundamentalist” Islamic “sect” have interest in Africa more than ever before,
2)That “some” people in Egypt think they have their historic conflict of interest with Ethiopia (Nile..),
3) Now that Al Shebab is losing ground in Somalia,
4) That there are Islamic “fundamentalist” movements: revolts in many parts of the world,

There has been a focus on Ethiopian Muslims! This is the underlying cause as we all know it! This is what is something NEW! The current religious-geopolitics! As we (you)can be well aware of it, there have been teachings in many Mosques by “some” sheikhs agitating conflicts between Muslims and Christians, like;

1) Citing historic conflicts (as you also did in your post), goading Muslims for retaliations of the past
2) Comparing Ethiopian Muslims with fellow Muslims in the Arab world and telling them that they are weak to have lived peacefully with their fellow Christians,
3) Even directly declaring Jihad on the Christians and some Muslims

We know what has been happening! Many Christians and Muslims have been murdered, their Churches and homes burnt..! At that time the current system didn’t do much about this, mainly because of the notion that such “conflicts” would draw people’s attention from the government!

Finally, this is my opinion:
1) It’s NOT adventure or “holy” to go bitter as you said it in your post (I can imagine you could go bitter because of the insults you mentioned.
2) While making sure that your rights are respected, you (or Christians..anyone) cannot impose any religious ambition in the “secular” system so that we may continue coexisting.

3) ORIGINALLY, we Ethiopians were NOT Jews, Christians NOR Muslims! What makes us different from the rest of the world is that we accepted all these religions PEACEFULLY (as you mentioned it in your post). All other countries have their own bitter history, any “Muslim” country, you name it!Therefore,
3.1)We must NOT disregard our marvelous and unique history AND try to “copy” and “paste” the Middle East..saga! Just give it up, brother!
3.2)We must work to maintain that “holy” legacy rather than declaring death on EVERYONE BECAUSE “Asta Getu, et al” said something wrong! It’s shame!

God be with you!

There are tangible evidence of a group of brainwashed Ethiopian Muslims are promoting an international jihadest ideology in Ethiopia, many innocent Muslims and Christians been slaughtered and terrorized, the Ethiopian government should abstain its appeasement policy should deal with them with firm hands.

Hailu
It looks like this website is hijacked by Woyane thugs. All the comments against Amnesty come from these people. They are virtual prisoners of Woyane demagogy. I think Amnesty can’t free them. Because they willingly put themselves. Shame on you. You don’t even think of great consequences of actions of the Woyane against 50 million Ethiopian Muslims. The country might collapse unless Woyane’s madness is properly checked.

I have suspected for long Amnesty and Human Right Watch to be a neo-colonialist groupings financed by Saudi Arabia and the rest of the evil Arabs. Amnesty accused not long ago the Nigerian army for standing up against the most savage killers called Bokko Haram. The same two neo-colonialist agents were accusing only Serbia in the middel of a civil war not long ago. All Ethiopians should avoid any contact with these fascist groups. They only want civil wars, ethnic or religion, to engulf the whole third world countries.
Amnesty and Human Right Watch pretends as left wing progressives who are for the rights of third world countries but in reality they are the once who are feuling hatrades by supporting this against that with out any proof. Forexample, the terrorist organization ONLF sends e-mails to HRW spies that Ethiopian army is raping and killing Somalis in the Ogaden and this organization began accusing Ethiopia citing the same thing with out any proof. This is in line with the wishes of the Saudis and Egypt.

Now we know what the real agenda of of Amnesty and HRW is. They are pure crooks.
