Amnesty International Presses Ethiopia to End Repression against Muslim demonstrations

Source: AP

An international rights group is urging Ethiopia's government to end "repressive tactics" against Muslim demonstrations.

At a protest in Ethiopia's capital on Thursday marking the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Fitr, Muslims chanted slogans asking the government to respect their rights.

Witnesses told an Associated Press reporter that hundreds of protesters were beaten by police who dispersed the crowd near a stadium where mass prayer was being held. Police blocked roads leading to the stadium.

Amnesty International said it's concerned with authorities' crackdowns on freedom of speech and the right to assemble. The group said Ethiopia should restrain its response and avoid future bloodshed.

Some in Ethiopia's Muslim community — about one-third of the predominantly Christian nation — have been protesting alleged government interference in religious affairs for about two years.

HOW THE MUSLIM EXTREMISTS PLAY VICTIM IN A BLAME GAME WHILE ON THE OFFENCE IN THEIR JIHAD, KEEPING THE REST OF THE WORLD ON THE DEFENCE.

Aside the Muslim extremists’ wanna be mouth piece AIs nonsense accusation, when was really the Muslims been prosecuted in any part of the world?
Who really started the war? Who really started the fire?
Who is terrorizing the world by suicide bombing and indiscriminate killing through out the world, but meanwhile crying victim?
Who declared holly war “JIHAD” in their satanic wish of imposing their belief (sharia) on any unbeliever all over the world by force?
When we ask our selves the above questions and pause for a moment to reflect and contemplate what really was going on since the early 90s in the Muslim world or the whole world in that matter, we can see how the jihadist Muslim extremists manipulated the west’s freedom and democracy, which they despise and hate, for their own satanic intention, while the west (the civilized world) tolerated as victims of these barbarians who robbed off our freedom.
In November 2009 a US army major Nadal Hassen walked in an army service center full of soldiers and civilians and opened fire killing 13 and injuring 32, before he was shot and paralyzed.
Hassen, a Muslim fanatic who was communicating with a known terrorist leader named awlaki in Yemen told officials he killed his victims because it was his duty as a Muslim.
The ironic part of all his action is, he is still alive and allowed to represent himself in court of law tormenting his survived victims and their families. Most of all the US is still paying his salary, which adds up so far $320,000. And still we have to spend more money for his costly trial and let this barbarian extremist terrorist to blaber his nonsense on our cost of millions of dollars.
“but instead How much does one bullet cost?”
The 9/11 master mind sheik khalid is still in US prison with the liberty of his own email access.
Who is the victim here?
How long can we tolerate these barbarians?
Why is the majority of the Muslims so peaceful, while the extremists keep terrorize the world in the name of these peaceful Muslims brothers and sisters.
It is time for the majority of Muslims say enough is enough, and the rest of the civilized world to come out and go on the offence, to clean up our beautiful world from this barbarian extremist terrorists.

Amnesty International ,HRW and many others Human Rights Groups Associations officials ,it’s really a waste of times to talk with the bunch of Northern bandits in power in Addis Abeba .Time to make pressure on your own governments ,specially the US and UK Administrations that they
cease their Military and Financial assistances ,locally used by the Ethno Despotic regime and his bandits to oppress and massacre the peoples .

This so called amnesty International is from London.

So, before anything else, anyone has to know about the evil nature of some individuals from that part of Europe.

If the English were not there, for sure; Slavery, colonization, the total destruction of native Indians in North America, Aboriginals in Australia and New Zealand and all the crimes against humanity and nature including against animals and plants all over the world would never happened.

Just notice some of the many secret rich/establishment organizations/clubs in England including Traditional British group(TB) and Monday club secret and open activities against the world especially Africa/black people.

Google to know the devastating and evil nature some of them are having, planning and doing against none Europeans including Traditional British group and Monday club including playing dirty games in internal matters in the name of aid, human right, democracy, election and so on.

Therefore, those in the name of human right, earth matter, some NGO and the likes are the best weapons the enemies/racists are using to fulfill their devastating and racist agenda at home and coming as far as to Africa and elsewhere beyond.

Instead of talking about human rights elsewhere, they need to start at home where the worst human right is going on between rich and poor, and also based on race not the people but those few part of the establishments are responsible for.

Mind you,

They don’t care about any human right in any country let alone in Africa. What they are looking is a reason to create conflicts between people that would lead the Libya, Syria, Egypt and the likes way which is not building the nation and benefit the people but destroying the nation and killing the people.

Peace, unity, knowledge, development and prosperity are what they hate the most to see especially in Africa. Africa need very tough and determine leaders that are understanding the whole issues coming from abroad by the enemies to create the Arab stile chaos in order to stop development and create the worst human tragedy they are accustomed to see in Africa and enjoy it.

The reason why Egypt, Libya and so on were peaceful, developed and the people were benefiting is because of the leaders like Mubarak, Gadafi and the likes were very tough against anyone that is trying to cause any trouble.

Look what is going on in those and other nations in the name of western democracy. Whenever especially in Africa the English are around, be sure it is 100% for bad reason that would reveal after they planted and started to give position among the citizens.

USA is good and will be the best when it starts to reject following the English agenda in Africa and elsewhere.

These orgs. like Amnesty Int., HRW, ICG, etc are working on behalf of Multinational Corporations. They will keep doing what they are doing until the GOE changed its successful developmental state policy and privatize its big institutions to the highest bidder. They just work for the rich families of Europe and North America. The leaders in Africa know this already, this is the information age.

Amnesty interfictioanal, why they necame first to voice about the Muslim fanatics repression in Erhiopia. Did they ask them when they kill the 70 year old man and they say its drama of the govt.

Friends, who is african dessk manager of Amnesty, a person who was jailed by his invilvement of the 2005 post Ethiopian Election violence. Thislitle guy’ ambition is always to incite viilence whenever, he can. So don’t waste your time by his crab.

We have seen peacelover Muslims celebrated their EID and went home peacefully. Those who waant face and attack the security forces have met their fate accordingly.

Definetley, the supporters of such violence, peopl like this big mouth Gondere Teddy will not get it. He wil start now another front in Waldba by organizing the ex-Derg remnants, hiding in that monastry since their defeat by the Galant Force of EPRDF. I HEAR YOUR VOICE ON YOUR RADIO ON SATURDAY. I AM BACK. NOW TO THE GAME YOU ARE PLAYING.

I AM HAPPY TO SEE THE COMENTS OF AZ’s well groomed and upto the top annalysis. Teach this Wahabi, christian haters advocates and their members

AI is Sharia Compliant

AI can go to hell in a basket. Ethiopia needs to put Muslims under strict control. Look what they’re doing to Christians in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria.

This snakes should be kept in cages.
