Ethiopia airs jihadi film amid sensitive Muslim protest trial
The strategic Horn of Africa country is one-third Muslim and two-thirds Christian; why is its state-TV ginning up religious tension?
By William Davison
Ethiopia, a US ally in the battle against Al Qaeda-affiliated militants in Somalia, added to mounting worries about religious discord in the diverse east African state by screening a provocative documentary on Islamic extremism.
Ethiopian Muslims are furious about the film, which they say dishonestly blurs the distinction between legitimate political protest and violence by using lurid images of foreign terrorists that have nothing to do with them.
The program, Jihadawi Harekat (Holy War Movement), ran on state-TV at peak watching hours last week, and it associates local Muslim protesters now on trial with militant groups such as Nigeria's brutal Boko Haram movement and Somalia's Al Shabab, as well as unrelated Ethiopian militants.
Currently, 29 leaders of a Muslim protest movement, and representatives of two Islamic charities are on trial in Addis Ababa, facing charges of plotting violence to create an Islamic state. The trial is being held behind closed doors in order to protect some 200 witnesses, according to the government.
A documentary made by cut, paste and editing.
Run by Eritrean named Bereket aka Joseph Geobbles!

In airing Jihadi film, in exposing the hidden violent agenda of the Ethiopian Jihadist Muslims, and in keeping the 29 terrorist Ethiopian Muslims in jail, the Ethiopian Christian government has done an excellent job, a job that other nations can fully imitate and apply to protect their citizens from domestic and international Islamist terrorists.
Using the Jihadist Ethiopian Muslim protesters’ movement as a means or as a ladder to grasp power from the Ethiopian Christian government without understanding the profound hidden schemes the Ethiopian Muslim protesters are using to destroy Ethiopia’s Christianity and replace it with their rotten religion, Islam, the Ethiopian diaspora opposition leaders are deluding themselves if indeed they are masquerading as supporters of the Ethiopian Muslim protests in Addis Ababa. The Ethiopian Muslim protesters’ main interest is spreading Islam in the Christian land of Ethiopia and finally achieving their goal, the goal of all Arab-Muslim nations, and that imminent goal of theirs is never to call Ethiopia an “island of Christianity.” Instead, all Ethiopian Muslims and their supporters, foreign Islamic countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Somalia, and Iran, want to call Ethiopia an island of Islam surrounded by Islamic countries. I don’t think the Ethiopian diaspora opposition leaders know the hidden plot the Ethiopian Muslims are committing against the Christian land of Ethiopia. If they knew, they wouldn’t support the Ethiopian Jihadist Muslim protests that have taken more than 12 months.
Muslims, whether they are Ethiopian Muslims, Somali Muslims, Sudani Muslims, Egyptian Muslims, Saudi Muslims, British Muslims, French Muslims, American Muslims, and Muslims under the oceans, Muslims in the space, and even the dead Muslims, should never be trusted by all civilized countries.
The first duty of a Muslim is to be sure he is following the commandments the prophet Muhammad had inscribed to all his Muslim followers, and some of Muhammad’s commandments are the following:
1. Muslims should not be friends to Christians and Jews (Quran 5:51).
2. Muslims must lie to the Christians and to the other non-Muslims (Ishaq: 365; Tabari VII: 94; Ishaq: 519).
3. Muslim must incite their Muslim brothers to fight against the non-Muslims (Quran 4:84).
4. Muslims must kill any person who leaves Islam and joins other religion (Quran 4:90).
Theses are the most basic doctrines of Islam that every Muslim must follow, and when you see a Muslim person greeting you, speaking nice words to you, and, perhaps playing with you, he is doing such friendly things to you superficially without forgetting Quran 5:51, and he hopes he might influence you through his showy friendship to be, one day, a Muslim. He would lie to you as much as he wants as far as he believes he is lying for the sake of Allah.
When the Ethiopian Muslim protesters say their protest is purely for religious freedom, they are telling a lie, and this type of lies is permitted by Muhammad the false prophet, who had said: “I am the best of plotters. I deceived them with my guile….” (Ishaq: 323)
These Ethiopian Muslim protesters are deceiving the Ethiopian Christian government and the superficial media by explaining their protest is against the government interference in their religious affairs. That is not so! History tells us Muslims were able to conquer country after country through their deceptions, shenanigans, and lies (taqiyya).
The ancestors of the Ethiopian Muslims had been saying to the Ethiopian Christians that they loved the Ethiopian Christians, the Ethiopian Christian leaders, the Ethiopian Christian cultures, and the Ethiopian Christian traditions; however, when the Jihadist Muslim Gragn Muhammad invaded Ethiopia with the Muslim Turkish soldiers, the Ethiopian Muslims joined Gragn Muhammad, accepted him with their opene arms as their Muslim leaders, and brought heavy damages on the Ethiopian Christians whom they superficially loved and admired.
What makes the Ethiopian Muslims betray the Ethiopian Christians is their religion, Islam, that tells Muslims not to be friends with Christians and with all other non-Muslims, and as far as the Ethiopian Muslims believe in Islam, a hostile and a violent religion, Ethiopian Christians are going to suffer for a long time because of the presence of a huge number of Muslims in the Christian land of Ethiopia and their number is still growing.
If I were the leader of the Ethiopian Christian government, I will take the following drastic steps to protect the Ethiopian citizens from being overwhelmingly slaughtered, plundered, raped, sodomized, and dehumanized by the followers of the beast, the false prophet Muhammad:
1. Stop the Muslim protest immediately.
2. Confiscate all the documents the Muslim protesting leaders have been using.
3. Declare that Muslim protest is illegal in the Christian land of Ethiopia.
4. Prohibit Muslim prayers on the streets, in the schools, and in many other public areas.
5. Never build a new Mosque anywhere in the Christian land of Ethiopia.
6. Announce the Grand Anwar Mosque should be a house of prayer, not a house of protest.
7. Observe what kind of prayers and teachings are offered on each Muslim Mosque.
8. Shut down the Awalia Muslim Mission School forever.
9. Deport all foreign Muslim teachers and never bring them back.
10. Discourage all Muslim children from learning the Arabic language.
11. Show students every week documentary movies that depict the atrocities and cruelties Muslims commit on non-Muslims all over the world.
You are endangering the Ethiopian Christians if you have Muslim soldiers in the army in great number. Tigrean, Amhara, Christian Oromo, and other Christian soldiers will die for Ethiopia, but Ethiopian Muslims will die for their religion, never for their country. Ethiopian Muslims always think they are second citizens; they always demand special treatment, special privilege, and special religious freedom from the Ethiopian Christian government. For these and other uncalled-for reasons, Ethiopian Muslims have made themselves foreigners, not Ethiopians. If they are not Ethiopians, then they are our enemies, residing in our in our Christian country, gathering indispensable, classified, and unclassified information and passing them to our enemies, the Somalis, the North Sudanese, the Egyptians, the Saudis, the Iranians, and others.
With all our economic problems and geographical locations, we must take the Ethiopian Muslims seriously: we should not promote them to the highest government offices; whatever education or qualification they may have to run the Christian land of Ethiopia, we must ignore their qualification: what we need from them is their loyalties, but they don’t have them as they have demonstrated to us several times before. We should not allow them to run their own affairs with out our permission because we don’t trust them, and they don’t trust us either. They trust more the Egyptian Muslims than the Ethiopian Christians.
How hard it is to live in the Christian land of Ethiopia at this particular time when Muslims in Ethiopia are flexing their muscles, threatening and terrorizing the Ethiopian Christians who have been tolerant toward these lawless Ethiopian Jihadist Muslims who force their followers to hold prayer on the streets of Addis Ababa as a show to the world that Ethiopian Muslims do not have enough Mosques to use to worship their moon-god, Allah!
Ethiopian Muslims pray on the street for three reasons: (1) they want attention from the government of Ethiopia; (2) they want to show to the Ethiopian Christians how pious Ethiopian Muslims are; and (3) they want to expose the Ethiopian government for not allowing them to build more Mosques in the Christian city of Addis Ababa or in the holy city of Axum.
We Christians don’t even have a single Church in Mecca, and we are not even allowed to have a prayer meeting in the Saudi’s Kingdome; however, the Ethiopian Muslims are pestering the Ethiopian Christian government for more Mosques, for more religious freedom, and for more lands. As their request is unfair, so is their presence in the Christian land of Ethiopia!
@Assta Be Gettu !
Ethiopia is not a christian state any more. After the fall of the monarchy, we are secular. Even at the time of monarchy the Church and state were separate.
There are certain radicals in the muslim population in Ethiopia which we have to control. But the majority of muslims in Ethiopia are. The current situation in the muslim population is partly created by TPLF-EPLF. TPLF-EPRDF allowed imams from Sudan & Egypt to mushroom in the ethiopian muslim community.
We have to create the condition where religion becomes a private matter (easier said than done). Christinaity, Judaism and Christianity are part of our culture. We should oppose fundamentalism in alll religions. We can not have a christian ethiopian state. Yohannes and Menelik tried, but the muslims did not convert because the demoagogy inheren in Islam.
Pseudo historians like Lapisso have been eugolizing Ahmmed Gragn’s fascistic campaign against Ethiopian Christians. Ahmed Gragn is the enemy of Ethiopia as a nation for he destroyed the culture we had using the sword and fire. The Somalis see Ahmed Gragn as a hero and there is a statue of him in Somalia. We should not allow any statue of Ahmed Gragn to be errected any where.
Emperor Yohannes was killed in the battle field. His body is still in Sudan. Sudan should give back the body of Emperor Yohannes. We should also punish the sudanese for their past and present crimes.
As to ethiopian muslims, they should show that they are ethiopians. We should not allow foreign muslims to come to Ethiopia. There should be no excllusive muslim or christian schools.
The other worrying thing is that we are getting Arab investors who are occupying our farm lands. This should be stopped. Farming should be an exclusive ethiopian business.
From the above two posts one can only see that they share more things in common: they both tigres(Shabia and Wayane) and they hate Islam too much, and they speak as if they own Muslims and their life. Amhara for sure are methodical. Yohannes IV failed, but Menelik II did succeed in controlling and defeating Muslims (cutting Muslim women’s breasts, cutting hands Yohannes IV, forced conversion by Yohannes IV, and also killing innocent Muslims in Boru Meda). Menelik II had a chance to at least tolerate Islam although he clearly maintained upper hand of the Church. These two commentators are panicking about the coming back of Muslims. Reality is Muslims are not yet ready to take up power from copts. But one thing is sure, they will not allow copts to tamper with their religion. So, let us see if Wayane dares to:
1. enforce Ah Bash.
2. Ban hijab.
3. Close Anwar Mesjid.
4. Close Muslim charites (so many of it closed)
5. Ban preaching.
6. Ask them to celebrate Meles day and not Eid day.
7. Kick out their Arab friends.
8. Ban Arabic.
9. Arrest their imams and their Mesjids.
10. Torture Muslims.
11. Take away Ogaden oil.
12. Take away Afar tantalum.
13. Take away Oromiay coffee.
14. Take away Gurage Kocho.
15. Take away Hadiya butter.
16. Take away Harar city.
17. Prevent Ahmed Gragn statue but allow Yohannes IV named after Mekele airport and get a statue.
18. Kick out Muslims out of Ethiopia.
19. Get war with Sudan over Yohannes IV’s head.
20. Destroy Muslim artifacts and archaeology.
21. Ban Muslims from University education and higher posts.
22. Minimze the role of Muslims in public life.
These 22 dangers are real. One thing is clear, all evil of Ethiopia originates from Tigre people. It is in their blood. One thing is clear, Muslims know how to take revenge against a Tigre. Time will tell, but this “tigabe” must stop.
1,"The Ethiopian Government apparently is courting disaster and preparing for its own demise. The Muslims of Ethiopia, particularity the youth, are not going to sit idly by in the face of this horrendous insult.”
2,"Is there some kind of power struggle going on between the mostly Tigrean Goverment of prime minister Meles and the National Bank of Ethiopia, dominated at the level of control and power by the mostly Amhara Monarcists who are, for the most part christian fundamentalists of the Orthodox Coptic sect?”
3,"Federalists Versus Monarchists every Ethiopian Muslim - and many honest Ethiopian Christians for that matter- Know that all of the important institutions in Ethiopia - finance,business,industry- are controlled by certain fanatical fundamentalists of the Ethiopian Coptic orthodox christian church. This same group is also known as the monarchists; they look back with nostalgia to” the good old days"of the rule of emperor Haile Sellasie.”
4,"This enfanchisement of non-Amhara ethnic groups is what the monarchists hate so vehemently”
5,"Thus,it very well may be that the fanatical Ethiopian christian power structure has been more than willing to act as accomplices and facilitators in the American-Israeli agenda against Ethiopian Muslims.”
6″Further,The Muslim youth-those under 35 years age-will be the leaders.There are many learned Muslim youth in Ethiopia.They have the knowledge and the youthful stamina to lead the an “Ethiopian Spring"against the tyranny that stands in front of them.”
All were from the article, “The Ethiopian Muslims and the Ahbash controversy", by mr.Muhammad Ali Alula Al-Hashimi,in january, 2012 issue of Crescent international.
Question for peace loving Ethiopian Muslims
A.Has Ethiopia been unfair to you as this so called Muslim scholar thinks?
B.Where was the Ethiopian Orthodox church took fanatically fundamental actions to hurt the Ethiopian Muslims?
C.Were Ethiopian Muslims not Treated fairly by Emperor Haile Sellasie?
4. Are Ethiopian Muslims economically worse of than non-Muslims?
5.Ethiopia`s development interrupted by communists,secessionists,foreign enemies intervention.Now,are Ethiopian ‘Muslim scholars"repeat the same?
I think personally we are the best example of harmony when it comes to Christian muslim relations. personally I have grievances especially from Priests (not all) and the leaders of Ethiopia in general who are ashamed of a Muslim or associated with Muslim blood. The case of Negus Michael( Mohammed) and his son Eyasu could be one good example. The cases of Yohannes IV and Menelik II are very unfair. Haileselasie is not bad compared to Wayane.
The present generation of Muslims is not against Christians Ethiopians. It is against those leaders who hijacked Christianity to oppress all Ethiopians including Christians themselves. My family expriences are not bad with chritians. As I said the blame rests on its leaders and some priests who preached for us to divide. Again there are good priests. Please do not think Muslims are being ungrateful. As an Ethiopian it should pain you when we are denied a place of worship in Axum and no place of burial. More over, Muslims generally are viewed with suspicion when it comes to building the Mesjid. In addition, do you know that Muslims do not have recognition from government unlike the Synodos which is an Ethiopian government institution where as the Muslim Synodos (Mejlis) works under a three year temporary license. To me that says a lot about the Law of the nation. If constitution says government and faith are not one, why would not abolish the old relationship which is illegal married of church and government? You may tell us Saudi does not allow church, but we are Ethiopians and we do not pay taxes to Saudi government and how do you expect us to help you on that matter? Plus, we are not in power. So, the logic of Saudi is not good. We ask the Saudi to treat Christians in good faith. But that is the work of governments to improve relationships.
So, to answer your question did we treat you unfairly, the answer is a “yes” and a “no". Yes, because the people are generally good. No, because the power is in the fanatics or worse in power mongers who benefit by hyping the Muslim issues.
I would prefer Haileselasie over Wayane. Wayane has no religion. They follow Budhism which worships Meles. We say no to a Budhist who uses Christians to wage war against Muslims. Christians should know this dividing tactic and join the Muslims whom they have been helping for centuries despite some here and there minor issues. I say let us unite and stop the Wayane devil.
