Ethiopia's Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, Aug. 24, 2012.

Ethiopia: Hailemariam Desalegn parroting dead tyrant

By Abebe Gellaw

Hailemariam Desalegn’s recent interview with Peter Heinlein of VOA confirms that his rise to the helm of power can be largely attributed to his opportunistic imitation of how the late dictator talked and walked as well as his commitment to serving TPLF bigwigs that control him as their Trojan horse.

Hailemariam called political prisoners such as famed journalist Enskinder Nega and Andualem Aragie “terrorists” that wear two hats operating legally and illegally as operatives of terrorist organizations. He claimed that protecting the country from these kinds of people is a national priority.

Despite the fact that Hailemariam tried to portray himself as a God-fearing Christian, it turns out that this man of God has no qualms about the injustice and atrocities being committed against defenseless citizens by the brutal regime he took over as Prime Minister. Hailemariam gave no hint of reform and political concessions including the release of political prisoners or opening up the repressive political system that crushes peaceful dissent in violation its own constitution.

He defended the anti-terrorism law and the unjust incarceration of journalists and dissidents. According to Hailemariam, the regime is punishing only those who wear two hats and operate legally as journalists and dissidents and illegally as operatives of terrorist and violent organizations.

His convoluted, repetitive and at times unintelligent answer to a simple question why the government resorts to repression and blocking the free flow of information, Hailemariam did his best to use his dead boss’s [that he calls the “Great Leader”] words and catch phrases such as “crossing the red line and wearing two hats”.
In response to how he views the dominance of the TPLF that ruled the country in exclusion of the others, he made his best to please his TPLF bosses by denying the obvious and saying that EPRDF is composed of four “parties” that have equal share of power. According to Hailemariam, his election as Prime Minister is a “living witness” of the “internal democracy and equity” within the EPRDF.

“For those who say that EPRDF is biased to certain ethnic groups, is a false and unwarranted speculation… Internal party democracy is the basis of our strength,” he claimed in an interview punctuated with numerous factual [and grammatical] errors.

Asked why websites and other media outlets are being blocked, Hailemariam said that even in the United States Osama Bin Laden’s blog is not allowed. “You cannot open a blog of Osama Bin Laden in the United States. So it is the same,” he said.

Following are excerpts from the VOA interview where Hailemariam tried to answer a couple of fundamental questions confronting him:
Peter Heinlein: One of the first things that Ethiopians notice about the change from Prime Minister Meles to you is that you are not part of a minority group and the armed struggle perceived as having ruled the country to the exclusion of the other larger ethnic groups. Can you say that the Tigrayan influence on Ethiopian politics is in decline? How do you answer to skeptics who say that the TPLF is still in control behind the scene?
HMD: Well, first of all, if you want to understand the whole situation you have to understand our party. Our party is a coalition of four major parties in the country… These are the four coalitions [sic] of the EPRDF.
EPRDF was initially been [sic] established by the two parties which has been [sic] in armed struggle in the Northern part of Ethiopia. TPLF was the pioneer of this struggle and so later on joined by the Amhara National Democratic Movement [sic] and then against by the OPDO and finally after the overthrow of Derg the Southern Ethiopian Peoples Democratic Movement has joined EPRDF….

After the renewal process, since the last ten years [sic] the renewal process has brought up a new, I mean, refined strategy and policy in line of the party. So in this regard, all the parties has [sic] gone into a new movement and has [sic] become parties which has [sic] embraced the same line, the same experience, I mean, the same way of working within the internal party system and almost equitable way of engagement. Even if there are natural differences with experience everywhere…

So I think all the four parties has [sic] equal settings in all the EPRDF mechanisms like the council, the party congress, assignments. The witness is I am the product of this process. So it is a living witness. For those who speculate that EPRDF is biased towards certain groups or ethnic groups, it is based on the powerful influence of this or the other group is a false and unwarranted speculation. So we see internally, in our party system the first and foremost thing is a democratic discourse. You know, internal party democracy is the basis of our strength. So those who are thinking from outside, they think without knowing the inside of the party. We have to explain this properly to those who are confused because they don’t understand the party mechanism and how the party operates.
This party is internally a democratic party. All its decisions and engagements are made in a democratic fashion. Therefore, you cannot say that this or the other party is influencing or overriding the other parties because all the all parties are equal number of constituents, I mean, individuals, that constitute the EPRDF and they have all the influence necessary if they want in a democratic process…

Peter Heinlein: Ethiopia has been criticized in some quarters for its tight control over the flow of information. Critical newspapers have been forced to close, journalists have been accused of violating anti-terrorism laws, and websites have been blocked, even VOA has been jammed, foreign broadcasts have been jammed. What would your government do particularly in this high profile cases such as that of the newspaper Fiteh that has been closed and the jailing of very critical blogger-journalist Eskinder Nega?

HMD: I know that these are your friends and you are so much sympathetic about them. The only thing is, Peter, you have to understand that anybody who has two hats should stop to wear two hats and should wear only one hat in a possible way. These two hats are one hat in a legal system, legal operating on the other hand having the other hat, which is illegal and violent working with a violent organization.

People who are arrested in Ethiopia are not arrested or convicted because they are working in a legal manner. Those who are arrested are has a connection with violent organizations. They are not convicted because of their journalistic business. It is allowed, you know have been there, you have been operating there but you couldn’t cross the red line ahhh to have a connection supporting a violent organization, terrorist organization. That is a case and I think it is a national security matter. It is a different thing. It is not journalism; it is not opposition.
Opposition doesn’t operate in illegal and violent manner connecting itself with ahhh, by the way, with terrorist groups. These are individuals not parties. We have never convicted any party because we know that those legally registered can operate legally in the country. But individuals who are registered with these parties but having two registration, one registration legal parties the other registration with illegal and violent terrorist parties.
They will be convicted for not legally hat but for the other hat which is illegal, violent and connection with terrorist organizations. So we have to differentiate between the two. If they stop clearly, unequivocally without any hesitation to work on the legal spectrum it is always the room is there [sic], the place is there.
If they mix the two, then we delineate between the legal one and the illegal, violent, terrorist one and for the action which is the second hat the violent and terrorist connection and support. Then that will be convicted according to the law of the land and will be punishable. I think these differences should be understood for you. In the United States it is not a problem because journalists do not go illegal way.

They go for legal and they have only got one hat. They do not have a mixed hat. So that is the difference between here and in Ethiopia. Unusually the Western countries do not understand the mix because they do not have this problem. They just see that all journalists work in legal manner. They don’t have this problem of illegal and the other hat. So that difference is sometimes confused. As far as we are concerned we focus for [sic] our national security interest.

Our national security interest cannot be compromised somebody having a two hat. We want to tell them properly that they have to have only and only one hat, which is legal and the legal way of doing things between journalism and opposition discourse. But if they opt to have two mixed functions then we are very clear to differentiate the two. People should be questioned for illegal and violent terrorist connection.

Peter Heinlein: What would be your government’s position on may be possibly opening up a little bit on the issue of press freedom. Right now websites are blocked, foreign broadcasts jammed and newspapers are being closed.
HMD: This I think should be very clear that my government has no policy of blocking these issues. It is depending on the websites or whatever that comes in. If there is any connection with these kind of organisations it is obvious that is done in every country. You cannot open a blog of Osama Bin Laden in the United States. So it is the same.

GELAW, now we know who you are. You have been telling the diasporas not to travel by Ethiopian airlines and not to send money to our parents because PM melse is going to use it. you are the TRUE BANDA- Or KEHADI-because you are the most selfish dangerous person who wants to do business in Ethiopia. We sow your big villa house you paid $142 thousand us to build that, but you were telling us not to send money to our poor that your newly built house in the heart of Addis Abeba has been confisicated. That is the price you got from God. You are the most foolish and arogant person, because you were trying to get away with this ugly scandal.

Now you are trying to tell us about the new pm. By the way who are you to tell us all lies? Sham on you and your WIFE who was travling by Ethiopian airlins 6 times to build your dream house!!!!. You are the most venomus, not trustworthy perosn.

You must be a damn fucked up TPLF member who shared the benefit they got. You think like dog because the dog is barking for who fees it. I am not surprised if you say like this with moron, uneducated mind. When you matured enough, you can think like Abebe Gelaw for the majority not for you useless belly. Your know what? your brain is filled with mucus, your belly with feces and fat nothing else. You blood sucker.

It is sad to see opposition parties are infiltrated by this kind of balager monkeys. I don’t think this animal differentiates between Ethiopia and planet of the apes. Politics is not slogan nor cursing your opponents through your apes of ESAT, it rather is a long process which needs patience, respect for your opponents and intelect. Since you don’t have these virtues you behave like an animal. So, your new target is the new PM ? Poor guy, it will take him centuries to civilise wild animals like you. I am sure those monkeys at ESAT will go along with you for birds of same feather flock together. Bye, bye planet of the apes, you guys have potential to be comedians like that dry comic (forgot his name) in DC.

Abeba Jilu,

You are one big-time looser. In the first place, you do not have what it takes to be politician–start with your English and personality and forget the slick knowledge that is needed to deal with politicians.
The bad thing that happening in opposition is that opposition politics of Ethiopia is now owned and being led by singers and stand-up comedians.
Tell me who is a well articulated and educated opposition member in US?
Abeba Jilu?
Abeba Belew?
These individuals could not even clean their rear-end yet.
Look at them how they act in their TV. Clearly they are in the state of forget-me-not. So childish and backwardness are the things of the days in their life. Mighty God is showing us their demise and destruction day after day. EPRDF is prevailing right under eyes. The time of confusion and doldrums has passed. No opposition personality can cheat us anymore–thank you God.

How many is/was mistakes could be counted from your oral interview? Have you ever counted them? What is a big deal to make a gramatical mistake for a person English language is his third language?

Please focus on substance (that the Neftagna amhara is losing power in the new Ethiopia).

I have listened to the PM speak in English, and have also seen the transcribed interview given to VOA while in New York. My humble suggestion is that the PM use the language of government in Ethiopia as his English is terrible. English is not his language, and we do not expect him to know basic English, just as the government of Ethiopia does not expect its young to learn basic English. Communicating in English requires employing the proper meaning of words at the appropriate time. This is particularly true in the world of diplomacy where the mastery of the spoken language is a must. There are many people in Ethiopia who are fluent with the English language that could serve as interpreters for the newly minted PM. He may use any language he wishes in private and in personal conversations. But doing Ethiopia’s business correctly and effectively with the international community requires a level of mastery of the English language that is currently beyond the PM’s grasp. Follow Haile Selassie’s lead on this: though he spoke English very well, he always employed Amharic when he did business with foreigners.

Mr. Abebe, please try to oppose with respect, so that you might get respected and at the end may be if you succeed your ideas too, and the begining of all this is to appologize and ask for forgivness for the dump thing you have done in your short live.
Recently the whole nation sees in you disgrace and shame.
We didnot know about your intention why you behave and think as you are doing right now, but it is a disgrace how you are talking about the people of Ethiopia and their leaders. If you are mentally ill please look for a doctor. Donot misuse people and the public. Thank you

To saw and Others,
If Abebe Gelaw build his villa house if he can travels to Ethiopia 365 d/Y what is your problem here, after all Ethiopia is his country and above all he is an authentic hero of Ethiopia, who teach how Ethiopian can get freedom from the very old, venom, racist and killer of wayane system. That is very clear that you and your master boss, who are not Ethiopian are robbed Ethiopian little resources and build high sky touch building, you and your master Ethiopian killer had deposited big accounts outside of Ethiopia by the name of your relative who live all over the world, that person who constantly spay and insult Ethiopian ppl.
Abebe Gelaw no need building because he is building ppl liberty history, Abebe Gelaw no need money because of he payed and paying his gran scarification to build humanity freedom and equality so he has great love by Ethiopian, he printed and invested big money on Ethiopian history book,
So when ETHIOPIAN get the God gift freedom then Abebe will have his building house, his luxury car called Limousine to drive with fresh and freedom air in his country but this time not from his pocket if not from Ethiopian because of Ethiopian can proud and respect his hard times hero.

I have been saying this for a while, Tigreans are not the children of Ethiopia! They belong in Mekele stay in there forever or with Eritrea, because they have more things in common with them than us. We Ethiopians never seen this kind of evilness in our people, haters in our people, divisiveness etc…….
People like Abebe, who has two masters degrees, who knows my beloved country and cares deeply risked his life to exposed the late decorator. Now he is the #1 enemy among Agames. They claim Abebe has property in Addis, just to take their anger on another Amara people. As far as I know the guy is not stupid to invest his money to a corrupted government, this is just another Weyane’s excuse to take advantage of innocent hard working people. This might comment might offend some people, but I think this is the only solution the Ethiopian people have. I think the Weyanes are better of with their own, anyway they wiped Ethiopa out, exported everything to Mekele, even change the location of the air force base, that used to be in Debreziet, now it’s in Mekele. What does this tell u people? I say they need to go and I Voted already.

The person who only speaks what he feels only if he is 100% sure there is no risk to him.
He said i wasn’t against eprdf while he was in Addis he even been working for Addis Zemen news paper and again after he left the country he didn’t say any thing while he mate melas in africa as there is risk according to him.
and now preech the young in addis to take risk and die.
he feel he in doing strugle in DC. collecting money from meetings in every states touring like obama by staying 5star hotel become strugle?
I wish people have a moral and think about others the same way they think for themselfs.

If you become a hero and a fighter for collecting money from meetings in 5 star hotel and enjoying a lexury life by touring the world like billioner all the 80 million ethiopians want to become a fighter.

Not only risk free it is well payoff investment as well..
As Tamagne, Abebe gelaw and Abebe belew you can live lexury life with out working one day jusy be begging money from fool diaspora.

Abebe Gelebaw, you are immature like many so-called journalists. You need to study or learn how to think better. You do not make sense.

HD might parrot the late Meles Zenawi. But what choices has he got? Do you want him to overthrow the regime? HD could or could not change things. In general we need to have a multiparty system. This does not mean the Opposition is not criminal. Many in the Oppsition have been serving the interests of Eritrea. The government has to take action against the likes of you and many others like Elias Kifle or many others who have been working to dismember Ethiopia. TPLF-EPRDF is anti-Ethiopia, but so is G7, EPPF, OLEJ etc.

Abebe Gelaw and Elias Kifle are parroting Sheabya or Esaias Afwerqi, who is gone to die soon. Unfortunately, Ethiopia is looking for leaders. We do not need the likes of Abebe Gelaw, Elias Kifle, Eskinder Nega etc who are anti-Ethiopia. The idiot Eskinder Nega agitated for peaceful struggle and yet called us to stand to overthrow the goveernment using our computers. what an idiot !

Ethiopian patriots should identify the real enemies of Ethiopia in the Opposition too. The Opposition is serving the interests of foreign powers like Egypt, USA and the Arab League. TPLF-PFDJ is our enemy, but can we rely on the Opposition? Why is G& accepting the secession of Eritrea? why can not G7 fight with the somali groups like ONLF? Why is G7 not co-operating with EPRP?

The Opposition has no clear picture of who is controlling Ethiopia? The Opposition is being is manipulated by Shebya to spread anti-Tigray campaign as the above post under “Alem” shows.

Axum or Tigray is the foundation of Ethiopia. why is the Opposition not giving Tigray it’s right place in the v=creation and formation of Ethiopia? Why is the Opposition ignoring the Aksumite Civilization as the basis of Ethiopia and Africa? As long as the Opposition is not ready to defend Ethiopian History properly, there wil be no justice and will fail in leading Ethiopia.

The present day Ethiopia have many refugee populations excwpt Amhara and Tigray people. Oromos, somalis, Sidamas are all immigrants from other parts of Africa. It seems these immigrant populations have no respect for ancient ethiopian history. Amhara and Tigray people should strengthen their unity and defend their heritage.

Abebe, Please calm down. Don’t you think you are jumping the gun? Why don’t you give him time to put together his thoughts? He is in the office only less than a month. This is the time to tame Hailemariam Desalegne no to blame him. The best strategy would be to approach him with positive attittude and ask to look at thing with his fresh eyes.

@Alem !

Tigray and Eritrea are not the same any more. Eritreans will have to be deported from Tigray because they have been sabotaging Tigray and Ethiopia.

Only the areas adjacent to Eritrea like Adwa or Shire are sympathetic to eritreans. In Enderta, Agame, Tembien, Raya districts of Tigray, eritreans are looked down upon and are discriminated. Some groups have taken actions against eritreans living in these areas. The future of eritreans in Ethiopia is very bad. Tigreans of ethiopia origin will take revenge against eritreans. It is only a matter of time. I am afraid non-Tigry ethiopians might also take revenge. The eritreans are parasites. They want at the cost of ethiopians. Tax-payers money of poor ethiopian farmers is used to feed and educate eritreans whereas many ethiopians are running around without food or education. This injutice will have to be corrected by deporting eritreans and forcing them to pay back.

It is really very disappointing to know about the new PM of Ethiopia. He is like Assad of Syria who calls those people of his own country who fight for freedom “terrorists". I do not think he is even a good politician. Meles was a self educated economist and politician. His command of english was excellent. That is because his highschool was one of the best in the country, General Winget, staffed by teachers from the UK.
This PM seems to be very bad, not only in the english language, but also in his comptence as a politician. It is outrageous to hear from him that almost all who do not support the Ethiopian government politcs are terrorists. He can just only be a puppet to TPLF leaders which for now have decidied to operate behind the scenes. The hope of any reformation by the new PM is now dead.

The new PM needs a lot of work first he needs to know how to comunicate in english if not he can speak what ever language he feels conferatable with and use interpretur to help him. The other coment I have is he looks like some one who does not have his own mind that he is pulled by a string and reads what others wrote for him. Ethiopia needs to hold election now and let HD go back to work on water resource design. His poletical intelectual level is compared to the agazi bandit moron like addis zemen and his comerade in stupedity Extraterrestrial. Which is Zero…

For some reason jelousy may be, brain washed by Westners,or you are an IDIOT. He is not in the Diaspora, he is a Leader of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa.

the other day it was funny listenning to abebe’s rant regarding the confisication of his villa in ethiopia, which he start building while telling ethiopians not to spend a penny in ethiopia including to stop flying EAL. he first tried to put it on his wife saying its hard to know for one what his wife is doing all the time and then said the whole thing is a lie.
now it seems abebe has one more reason to fight this government. his"milushin besemash” alu…actually in abebe’s case it should be.."erasish mityiwn besemash"…kikiki….

Abebe Gelaw and the likes,

You don’t represent the diaspora or any other majority group. I hope you understand that by now.

Speaking of Eskinder Nega and Andualem, I suggest you start begging the government instead of demanding. Eskinder Nega was a criminal so is Andualem Arage. They were caught red handed planning to unseat the government. In any sovereign country that is a crime. When Meles rebeled and tried to unseat derg by force, he didn’t expect to be protected by the constitution. If you guys don’t respect the constitution, you only have one choice. Do what Meles did and start an armed struggle. Otherwise, shut the f*** up and work within what the constitution permits. Like Hailemariam said you can’t wear two hats. The hat that Eskinder was wearing at the meeting below was clearly not a professional journalist. He was inciting violence and asking people to rebel in order to overthrow the government. That was a crime by any country standard.

Unless you start begging for pardon, Eskinder will never be out.

if he is not good on english he can use amheric f he good at it. The UN has help him out. A smart leader should know his strengh and his weakness and from what I saw english is not one of his strength. I know he is not despora but I can tell you with his level of english language if he comes to the US to be dispora the only thing he can qualify for will be driving a cub or parking lot. That is why Ethiopia is going down the drain still the poorest country in the world because we have useless rulers pupets or dictators. I also see you are not a very educated person when some one wants to express their openion you go strait to cursing. I feel sorry for you I can sense your amger of being stuck in the third wold country with no hope in sight. Don’t forget we can not change your situation from the US because we are happy here change comes from withen Ethiopia.. good luck with that.

Mr. [sic] Glebaw. It is funny you used that thing! Why don’t you re-listen your Amaro-English interviews? Do you know I always covered my face with shame when you open your mouth to speak English! hahahaha!

You stupid bushti/banda! You barked opening your filthy mouth on the most intelligent person with world class mind. You didn’t have any grammatical issues with him and there were no logical fallacies you could raise. But that didn’t stop you from embarrassing yourself by making the most cowardly cry in the world. Now you are trying to use [sic] on an audio interview thinking that will give you a face of an educated individual. I’m laughing at you. First please learn when to use [sic]. Remember when The Great Leader His Excellency Mr. Prime Minister Meles Zenawi used [sic] in his immediate but detailed response to your European master Anna Gobeze? That is how you use [sic] ANTE YESHERMUTA LIG!

What did you expect from the new PM? Calling you to Ethiopia and negotiate to give you some SILTAN? My God! How idiot you are!

Did I read that you mentioned about fear of God? So, you were dreaming because he is pente that he gives his left chick when you slap him on the right,eh? F**k you ANTE BANDA YE AGER TELAT! Haven’t you dreamed of St. Gebriel this time? What did he tell you? You’ll be PM of Ethiopia in near future? LOL. Keep sleeping your butt-off and dream while the newly elected industrious PM H/Mariam labors for the betterment of your family at Home. I was to say a lot. But have no time for Dikala like you!

Thank you ato Abebe Gelaw for frank and True analysis of the Current P.M.
He ( Hailemariam desalegn) is indeed a stooge,or puppet for the EPRDF tyrant guys at Arat kilo. There is no if or buts about this.
Having said that, the Cyber cadres are here on Nazret barking and cursing the genuine diasporas.

Ethiopia shall be free of the opportunist thieves.

Are you on drugs?

you said…
Abebe Gelaw and Elias Kifle are parroting Sheabya or Esaias Afwerqi, who is gone to die soon….

Are you trying to kill somebody? only the above statement makes you a killer.

And how about your hate upon Eritreans? Whats up? Your jealousy of Eritreans is eating your heart up. Ethiopia is multinational and always been hospitalble to all sorts of people The Jews, Arabs, Africans and Asien. But now thanks to your divide and rule, Ethiopia has become a shelter of egoists and greed woyanes of tgray who are there to dectate and terrorise the people and act as they wish with no any shame as if there is no tomorrow.

We are fedup of you guys, you never care about Ethiopians (calling us all for refugees) while promoting yourself to a REAL Ethiopian.

You are none-Ethiopian who destroy lives and blackmailing the people for your ego. Move to tgray!

Abe Gelaw,

This Trojan Horse will one day face your Gorade.
Until then let him roll around by his Egyptian and Assyrian masters; let the snakes ladder up into his Trojan cavity and make their abode there; let him lie, eat, shit and do the routine and right every human entitled to. With the name “HaileMariam” and sharing Welayta where Mengistu hail from, he should suspect that history is about to repeat itself through him. But he is clearly a balager, a crock, a one-dimensional, a bull, a fake and hired hand, selfish, murderer - like Mengistu - but he is not alone for there are a sizeable like him therefore he is the man of the times - the right person for the right people. It should be clear that the inside work of Eritreans in particular brought Mengistu. Don’t underestimate the Egyptian black magic being unfettered on the land of holly Ethiopia through their surrogates of minorities from tribes and clans of by now familar places.

Hi All,

What is wrong with most of us? I have noticed that most of Ethiopian are being prejudice about someone intellect because his English launguge didn’t sound like Tony Blair or PR. Obamas.

I was defending Abebe Gelaw for his controversial accusation (if I am not wrong) on the World food forum in the US. People who I know was dislike his expression and insisted he failed to address his point to the people in the Symposium because of his horrible English accent and language which was hard to understand, I was defending him that “he did it” as long as he think he made his point eventhoug his English was bad…

Honestly speaking, we know that many leaders in the UN and other big world symposium keep using there own language. But our new PM is already a head of some of them…

How long have Abbebe Gelaw been living abroud? a decade or two? How is his English? Do you think its better than the one who goes in a good highschool(St.Mary, St.Joseph, Lyce…)in Addis or an amateur news bloggers. Who is he to judge some once English language as if he is an English lecturer in the Cambridge or Oxford university.

Shame on all of us, as soon as we don’t like some ones idea we start to attack the individual personally and loos the whole point and no substance in the discussion. We need to growup!

English is for most of Ethiopian and us who lives in none english speaking countries is the 3rd or 4th language. So, are we going to judge every Ethiopian because they didn’t sound or write english eloquently like Obama?

Do u want a good leader or a good English speaker for Ethiopia? If only a good English speaker get a Brits or American(colonial mentallity).

If you want a leader who has got good heart and academic (University lecturer and Din work experience) knowledge with dynamic and humble personal attitude who is capable and efficient to make any national and international deals with Enthusiasm, then have your new PM.

Stick with the point and make a change in peoples mind to play win-win instead of making this forum personal and showing your hate to ward your own brother!

Peace out!

There must be a tribute to Abebe Gelaw, the son of St. Michael, who slew the adversary. The week Abebe Gelaw slew Meles Zenawi, we were listening to a mezmur about Kidus Michael who saved this believer from adverseries who use Egyptian black magic. How fitting it was then when Abebe Gelaw shocked the sorcerer who bounded the country with his spell for so long. How true and glorious are both our religion and our history. Things are the way they are because believers are on short supply.

I just cannot undestand as to what people want Hailemariam to be right now under the current cicumstance or if I were in his place.

He needs direct and indirect strong and knowledgable support from the internal and external opposions so that he may have stregth and a small window of oppostunity for being a little bit independent as to be able to make indpendent national decisions. Brother Barack Obama promised him independent security guards. How is it working? :)

Mr. Abebe , with all do respect it is better for you to pause and think before you speak so that you don’t damp your garbage out. Mostly politicians also jugged by the action they take and the manner how they handle there emotion. tray to come up more analytical analyses backed with the reason not personal hatred and empty rhetoric .I am not against opposing ideas or a worshiper of individuals but I appreciate peoples how have a stand with reasons and can explain their ideas not their emotion. Even if you don’t like the let PM. Don’t look think things on your perspective only there are things you agree to disagree don’t expect things to be always your way. That is called maturity.

Does that mean Desalegn is vowed to continue with the Stalinist Leninist Communist combined with Chinese style totalitarian regime policy Meles put in place? If it is true that may explain why he was elevated to that position. He must have been a yes dir lets destroy Ethiopia’s majority people life man. I hope he is not that small and ignorant.

That does not resonate with Ethiopians desire and hope. Ethiopians want to live free of repression and rejects the minority ethnic control. They want to live in stable and fair system that represents and favors all not favoring one Tigrea ethic over the hundreds ethnics.

Fair and stable system only comes when the majority is in power. By virtue of its unfair and few representations Minority rule is always empowered by foreign crooks since it does not support the majority.
The majority is the choice for Ethiopia that cares for the safety and stability of its people because it doesn’t need foreigners’ manipulation and exploitations and it is not only the few take all system.

“Opposition doesn’t operate in illegal and violent manner connecting itself with ahhh, by the way, with terrorist groups.”

By terrorist group does HMD really mean Shabia?

If so, why not just say it: certain opposition groups, including those individuals that have been entitled journalist have ties to Shabia, currently a destabilizing force in the country. It doesn’t mean that all or most of their words are untrue, but it does present a little problem,,similar to Cuba or Venezuela for the US.

They will only reform under pressure as 2015 comes closer.

What really amazes me most about TPLFites is when they label other Ethiopians as pro Shabia. Unless the reader was born “yesterday” or was in mental institution for the last 40 years or so, every Ethiopian knows TPLF was the reason why Shabia came to power in Eritrea. Same is true for TPLF. It makes the argument so infantile and empty for TPLFites to accuse other Ethiopians as pro Shabia.

My fellow Ethiopians,
Never give importance to what Abebe Gelaw says,because he is seeking for this.Let us not spent our time on negative things like what Abebe and his friends spread.
The main issue is to discuss how our country move forward.
My opinion is we have to be wise,we dont want any person die,any single destroy.We dont need anything like Arab spring or Somalia or Iraq. We dont need any single foreign involvement. We dont need hate politics.
However,we need to embrace or give recognition to the current leader.
Let us give support to each and every positive things done or to be done.Let us comment or discuss on things that aren’t helpful for most Ethiopian.We can positively influence other.If we can convince others, it is easy to convince the government. I believe People are the power.

The great Journalist Abebe

Your contribution for Ethiopia and Ethiopians is huge and immense. You are standing for justice and freedom for the oppressed Ethiopians under Woyane thugs rule.

Shameless, ruthless tyrant supporter greedy Woyane thugs now are attacking you for demanding freedom and humanity for all Ethiopians. How can this be bad unless someone is committing crime against humanity and worried of losing the unjustifiable grip on power that bleed and loot the oppressed majority?

When are you going to learn how to debate or hold discussion in a civilized manner with people outside of your circle?
Attacking people who do not support your idea shows your ignorant and tyrannical behavior. Woyane junta regime is beneficial to you but it is extremely bad for the majority of Ethiopians.
You are all living in the West (America, Canada, and Europe) breathing, eating, drinking, speaking, and sleeping in freedom yet you don’t want the same freedom you enjoy to happen for Ethiopians in Ethiopia? How shameless and low can you be?
For how long you are making fool of yourselves? Don’t you know insults and slurs are signs of weakness, lack of knowledge, absence of honesty and morality, having no facts, and ignorance?

At the same time I salute and pay my gratitude for the resolute supporter of freedom and Ethiopia.

“Does that mean Desalegn is vowed to continue with the Stalinist Leninist Communist combined with Chinese style totalitarian regime policy Meles put in place?”

I think it is going to harder for those fake “journalists” who eat with two knives.

I am convinced HAILE is a nationalist and no compromise on that, he is sending a clear message to the West WHY HE IS GOING TO SLAUGHTER THOSE CRIMINALS in a persuasive and challenging way. The central theme is there is no criminals in the west like the one we have in Ethiopia and this is the reason why you don’t understand when we kick their azz therefore, shut up. He is asking a free hand on the “two hat” fake “journalists".

This man is a real statesman most likely sent by God for Ethiopia to finish the mission started by Meles. It is like Moses and Joshua leading the oppressed people of Israel out of slavery to the land of milk and honey.

By the way I love the “two hat” metaphor, he is witty and sarcastic like his predecessor the Great Meles. I am sure worst time is coming on the “fools” and “idiots” and that it is GLORY HALLELUJAH!!!

It may be a good idea to give this man a chance to show himself as a leader of the country as a whole. Leading a country is a lot more complex than having ruled a region that is the most underdeveloped part of the nation. We have seen it here in the USA when some revered state governors falling by the way running for the presidency during the primary season. But there is still one story that has been bothering me since this man was elected to the deputy PM office by the late leader. Correct me if I am wrong on this one. Was it not there a story, a terrible one which took place in some towns of the region he was heading or at least as a member of the leadership in and around 2002? Didn’t I read a story of mass killings of peaceful demonstrators in that southern region on various websites of the Diaspora among us? I believe human rights organization such as Amnesty International and others alike had cried foul about the shooting of civilians. Was it investigated and if so what happened to it? Where was this man at the time of the killings? He might have atoned for what happened then. As far I am concerned, statute of limitation does not apply when it comes to the loss of human lives and crime was committed in the process. The other important thing I always keep in mind is goes by the old saying: Tell me with whom you walk and I will tell you what you do and who you are. If Joseph Goebbels tells me he goes with Hitler, I can tell what he had done, that he killed more than 6 million Jews, about a million Serbs and millions others in cold blood. If Rodolfo Graziani tells me that he and Benito Mussolini were buddies I can without a doubt tell him that he had ruthlessly killed more 3 million Ethiopians and tens of thousands of Libyans. But still I believe PM HD has the chance to redeem himself and do things related to human and democratic rights in different, inclusive and tolerant ways. I will sit back and watch him doing his things for now.

The Final Word….

It is absolutely amazing to witness the venom being spewed against a man who reported word-for-word what the new prime minister said in his interview with Peter Heinlein on the VOA. This was not about the UN speech which, we all should know, was written for HMD to read. And yes, we know he can read! Abebe Gelaw reported the words uttered by the PM exactly as they came out from the Prime Minister’s mouth. He neither made up those words nor did he attribute anything unstated to the PM. Apparently, it is the act of reporting, the profession that people are objecting to. No wonder then that the prisons in Ethiopia are full with journalists. If Ethiopians can not handle the truth and do not wish to know about them, then all they have to do is not read, listen to or view anything being said by people like Abebe Gelaw, Al Mariam, Messay Kebede, Elias Kifle, and many, many others who have stood up to the thugs in Ethiopia and their opportunistic supporters. I am prepared to give the new PM the benefit of doubt as are millions of Ethiopians every where. But that will not be and should not be at the expense of the truth, for at the end, it is only the truth and the only truth that will and must prevail.

What plans or idea do you have for Ethiopia? or what kind of person should rule Ethiopia? Do you have someone in mind among the oppositions? Name one person from diaspora oppositions. I know entertainers ( such as Tamagn,Shambel Belay) gossip blogers ( Elias Kifle ), and some Taxi drivers and parking lot attendants who have ample time to gossip and organized a 15 people protest around govt. buildings are the ones you call them prospective leaders?
Please tell me in what country cursing and hate politics suceeded in a regime change?
Teddy, Testa Digalina! malet ante neh. Doro tawkaleh? Ye doro chenkilat newe yaleh. I am sorry to call u this. How about Fandeya? Please find some other career. Politics is not for you because to involve in politics you need to be civil, you need to be a good listner, you need to be free from all kinds of bias, you need to be ahead of your enemy, and you need to use your time wisely for good cause not for cursing because you will fail again like the last 21 years. Thank you for your information that I’m banda. I truly believe that I’m not BANDA because I believe I have all the right to be a con or a pro of some organization or group because I used my brain proplerly, I have all the right to express my idea.
I came to conclusion not to support oppositions here in the United States because they are all the same as EPRDF try to shut my mouth. If I don’t agree with them, I’m labeled as Woyane, Banda and so on. Why would I support these oppositions since they don’t let any one speak their minds? So EPRDF, OPPOSITION ARE ALL THE SAME IF THEY WILL HOLD THE POWER. It doesn’t matter they are not Tigrian. All the same. So, MR Teddy, I’m not a supporter or fond of EPRDF but I rather help oppositions who are in Ethiopia because they are not cowards and shouting and crying from far away. They are truly heroes alike Abebe Gelaw. “Menew yehe Jegna Malet endih rekese Jal?”

Fact ,if you really care for the poor Ethiopian peoples it’s not who and why should rule the country .As I always say ,the ruler must be only by the wills of the majority of the Ethiopian peoples .The dead crime minister had usurpated the peoples power by siting on the Constitution he did draft himself just to entertain Western Donators .Of course we owe many to Diaspora Political activists as Tamagne ,Abebe
Gelaw and many other for holding the peoples voices musseled by the Criminal agazis .If the cases of Heroes as Eskinder Nega and those illegally detained by the Bandit Agazis ,is known to the whole world is thanks of their untireless fight and

I’m so disappointed ” Sega Kuter Bilu, Tafia Ande Ale” Are u serious Tamagn and Abebe Gelaw can lead the country? I rather have “Komche Ambaw” Listen, I tell u again and again to stop using hate politics. I thought Tigre was the one who jump from post office building ? Dr. Tesfaye Debesay” during EPRP for the love of the people. We saw your heroes who beg for mercy and run to America like Dr. Ginbot 7 and others. I can’t deny Eskinder Nega is a hero because he fight the fight residing in Addis. Please tell me why Abebe Gelaw flee from Ethiopia and he was not even touched by EPRDF? Why didn’t he stayed in Addis and fight neck to neck with EPRDF? Abebe Gelaw flee from Ethiopia for no reason. It goes like this. Yesu tarik lek ende Totawa aynet newe. Begeregeru beyazes yalechiw aynet. So, you tell me he is a hero? come on! The real fighters are there man and those are the heroes. Kezenam hula. Here all they know is eating Tire sega, segachewn amora yeblawena genzeben belut. If we are speaking the truth, who wouldn’t ask Meles at that forum in a civil way to make a point and to address issues for the audience if we get a chance like Abebe? I will, you will. So, that makes Abebe a hero like Atse Tewodros? Give me a break! These days we don’t have heroes especially from diaspora. The intellectuals are useless and unpredictable, they just compare Ethiopia with westerners. The activists just enjoy the money and the attention. That’s all Mr. Teddy

Right after he screamed on Meles, which is fruitless to the audience; he get pumped up by our reaction and made tours around the states as a hero. He even talks about meeting St. Gabriel at Seattle St. Gabriel church. When I look that video, man I feel like to hide some where in my own house under my bed. It was so embaressing to here that kind of testemony and it was irrelevant to his “historic tour” That’s how we create dictators and or control freaks. If Abebe was smart guy he should deliver his message in a civil way to the audience than barking at Meles and kicked out with disgrace. As an Ethiopian, Who shouldn’t ask the PM about the land grab, about human right abuse, about his , dictatorship, and other questions if we got the chance to be inside? So you tell me he is a hero? for what? he don’t even deliver the message to the audience in a right way. He was there just to fight Meles like a 4th grader. His target should be the audience than Meles. That’s how we create a cult on some one and prepare him to be a dictator when the time is right. What we need is:
1. Abandon the old politics
2. Abandon hate & ethnic politics
3. Help local oppositions financially (oppositions who reside in Ethiopia)
4. Avoid worshiping individuals and stop creating tiny dictators
5. Zip you mouth when planning something
6. Approach more Tigreans because they are Ethiopians instead of avoiding
7. Shift all Empowerment to oppositions inside Ethiopia since the diasspora oppositions fail for the last 21 years and are useless
8. Stop telling Ethiopian diasporas not to send money, to boycott something, or not to invest in Ethiopia because at the end of the day they are our parents, kids, brothers , sisters, and above all Ethiopia is our mama.
9. Attack the base not the economy

Before my comment I thank The great Journalist Abebe
again and again. Sir you are an inspiration to us. Keep up with your great work. All Ethiopians thank you.

aka the extra tail of TPLF robbers,

On my previous question that says “Does that mean Desalegn is vowed to continue with the Stalinist Leninist Communist combined with Chinese style totalitarian regime policy Meles put in place?” seems to have caused you discomfort so much since you are the one of the beneficiary of the Tigre totalitarian robbers.

I am sure you are dying to continue to rob Ethiopia. That is your entire motive.

As you are one of the member of Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF) to rob Ethiopia is all you know how and what to do.

You guys should start to detach your leech selves from our shoulders. All your fake “nationalist” comment now you came up with is all fraudulent. Meles failed to divide us, Ethiopians now you are trying to sound like you are also a nationalist. Ha, ha,ha…..
Stop sucking our blood!!!

Barking “Eritrea” is a sign of all TPLF cadres who are scared of being caught between Ethiopia and Eritrea. To us you are the big problem whom we welcomed in 1991 as one of us but you came in with evil and hateful motives for Ethiopia.
