Ethiopia: Response to Samuel M. Gebru

Ethiopia: Response to Samuel M. Gebru

By Rosa Abadir (

Your reckless attack on Abebe Gelaw as well as your approach to justify the ruthless crimes of Meles Zenawi and his criminal group in the name of professional journalist’s dogma reminds me those few Nazi’s intellectuals’ relentless crusade to portray Hitler as saint and defend his unspeakable crime.

I just read your article “Abebe Gelaw only Embarrassed Himself” ( on website last night, though it has been a few weeks since you wrote. Nonetheless, I still wanted to challenge your hollow debacle as I feel like I’m obliged to response to the most ill-informed youth like you who is simply misinforming himself and unable to see the center errors created by the master mind criminal leaders of Meles Zenawi & his gangs. Undeniably, your entire hotchpotch never touches down any point. It is this defect of mind that made you think your tribal mastermind criminal Meles Zenawi deserves a reward just because he appears on the G8 summit to receive his check in the name of poor & devastated Ethiopians; without looking into his daily crimes. As a result, you tend to underestimate not only the bravery action taken by Abebe Gelaw but also the entire Ethiopians particularly those concerned Ethiopians who have been publicly condemning the crimes that is committed by Meles Zenawi regime for the last two decades. Apparently, your relentless lie and fabrication does not have any impact to those who have tormented and terrorized by the Meles Zenawi ethno-apartheid rulers.

Indeed, your cultish type statement about Abebe Gelaw and other oppressed Ethiopians who are opposing your tribal ethno-apartheid leader seems very laughable and shows how much you are demoralizing Ethiopians and writing this tall and disgusting story to justify the crimes that is committed by Meles Zenawi and his racist criminal TPLF group. And I know why you are doing it so. It is because your mastermind tribal criminal leaders Meles/Sebhat striped your freaking childish mind as they are outstanding crafty liars. They did it adequately. As a result, I have never seen you before writing a single sentence to criticize the enormous crimes that is being committed by Meles Zenawi and his TPLF group for the last 20 years instead you didn’t have any shame to attack the victims (Abebe Gelaw) as if he is immature & unprofessional which is of course boring and disgusting. Let alone the other crimes committed by Zenawi and his savage TPLF evil group for the last 20 years, even recently your tribal chief Meles Zenawi has jailed enormous oppositions as well as journalists and labeled them as terrorist and sentenced them up to life in prison, including Reyot Alemu, Andwalem Arage, Eskinder Nega and other several innocent Ethiopians who criticized his tribal wrong deeds.

However, have you ever written a single word to complain the improper imprisonment of these innocent Ethiopians? Have you ever challenged Zenwai’s professionalism in arresting & torturing innocent Ethiopians? Obviously, prior to their last imprisonment, these individuals including Eskinder Nega, Andwalem Arage and others have been jailed multiple times. And unfortunately, as I am writing this piece to you I just discovered that your tribal warlord Meles Zenawi has sentenced them from 10 years up to life in prison. Do you believe this action is appropriate? Unless, you are deceived by your myth feeding leader (Zenawi) and accepting their charges as true, there is no way a rational mind would spend his time & energy in bombarding the wounded (Abebe Gelaw) and admiring the perpetrator( Zenawi). And I bet your heart knows these innocent brave Ethiopians, didn’t commit any other crimes except adore their nation and are selfless, and stood for democracy and Ethiopiawinet. If there is any crime, the only thing that they committed is that they stood opposite to dictatorship, racial politics, and ridicule democracy. They did their duty as they rejected the tribal dogma of Meles Zenawi as same as many million Ethiopians who unanimously rejected the TPLF tribal dogma.

In addition, you tried to undermine Abebe Gelaw’s exposal of your tribal leader in front of the global community as if his intention was to “disrupted the forum”, which was childish & imprudent. However obviously it was far from that instead you exposed your own inept & incompetency behavior. I think you are upset because your tribal chief leader Meles Zenawi was exposed in front of the international community. You sound like a dying monster screaming loud to be heard, but unfortunately no one is interested to save a monster, as it has so many bloods in his hand. I am sure; if you were honest you would blame those who forced Ethiopians to face endless misery and suffering. Anyway, it is a joke to imagine & expect that a horde of narrow TPLF members as well as their blind sympathizers like you who are unable to think further than their village have the power to pass reasonable judgment and give unbiased reaction to the genuine Ethiopians who reject their tribal dogma.

Your other deficiency is that you stated that “Dr. Shah of USAID essentially told Mr. Abebe to shut up and called security on him (see video time 03:32:01).” Unlike to your falsified report, Dr. Shah said “we heard your point” and then he called up security as he has never used the term “shut-up” as you falsely claimed. You do not have any shame to put such kind of statement, at least you failed to be faithful to present the video as it was to the minimum let alone you had the gut to criticize Zenawi’s criminal deeds. Furthermore your tribal chief Meles Zenawi was not only shocked as you presented instead he acted like a female coward chicken and shrunken his shoulder multiple times as soon as he his fabricated & falsified data presentation was interrupted by Abebe’s marvelous voice. Of course, in TPLF world there is no ethics and integrity, but acting deceitfully as long as it fits to their interest, which is a nature of village minded thugs who are unable to see the noticeable realities.

Truly, one thing that most freedom lover Ethiopians have learned from your baloney reaction that the TPLF ethno-apartheid rulers and their disciples do not like such kind of sensitive and exposing information, and you have made the same type of empty loud noise to devalue the information as same as other Meles Zenawi blind sympathizers though you tend to claim that you are not a zealous supporter of Zenawi. However, regardless we Ethiopians will continue to stand firm and expose those kinds of unscrupulous traitors. The truth is that people do not like to govern by gun point, but by their own consent, so the TPLF gangs violate this golden rule, and use brute force since the beginning to silence any opposition, so as long as the golden rule is violated there would be not only public condemnation but also revolution or insurrection, despite you accept it or not. Besides, the perpetrator (TPLF) could forget its action, but not the victim (Ethiopians), so regardless what kind of noise you are making to conceal your unscrupulous act; we are carrying the wound and would not forget what happened to us.

Therefore, unlike to your crippled advice to Ethiopian Americans, for us it’s really pleasing to see the monster confronted by one of his victims and exposed in front of his masters. And this is the very beginning of challenging your tribal warlord leaders. Of course, the blood thirsty tyrant like Meles Zenawi and his kinds should be confronted by freedom lovers wherever they are. There is no freedom for those who violate the right of others; instead they should be locked up the rest of their life for the sake of the common good or public security. There is no freedom for those who are killing children, women, elderly and rape defenseless women. Do not expect the people of Jew to support as well as attend the meeting called by Hitler and his associates. There is no any justification to have few hateful TPLF members and their affiliated groups to control the country and use it as their own property and ride on the back of the masses, while million children are scavenging in the trash can to fill their empty and groaning stomach. Surely, you would understand that how your tribal chiefs are violating the right of Ethiopian citizens, so no matter where they are they are criminals and should be confronted by those who love justices and freedom.

Indeed, the truth makes you free. Regardless of your hollow debacle, Ethiopia is a prison for its own citizens. Seemingly, we Ethiopians have observed that how being TPLF member is a license to everything (a license to kill, to rob, to rape to and etc.) the same as being white in previous South Africa apartheid rulers. No non-TPLF Ethiopians have the privilege as a citizen to have his/her shares of his/her country, but everything is for TPLF tribal members and their affiliated group, which is an overt and blatant apartheid more detestable than the old South Africa apartheid. You have seen few TPLF members are milking the country and accumulate immeasurable wealth inside as well as outside the country while other Ethiopians live under endless poverty. And of course we have witnessed that yesterday’s guerilla fighter become filthy millionaires, and adopt extravagant life style while million Ethiopians are scavenging in the trash can to fill their growling stomach and without doubt any rational mind do not have any difficulty to figure out where the richness coming form.. We have witnessed that yesterday’s guerrilla fighters are spending million dollars for luxury items in western shops, while million Ethiopian children have suffering with manmade malnourishment and end their life before they see their first year birthday. Is this what you think that Ethiopian American failed to understand? Get a life!

Finally, you also told us that “the Prime Minister was not embarrassed—and keep in mind, he got what we wanted: a renewal of G8 commitment to food security in Africa through the opening of a new fund of $3 Billion.” You see? you are again embarrassedly failed to admit this tiny fact. Indeed, it’s not a bizarre to anyone that billions of dollars is flowing to Ethiopia in the name of poor Ethiopians as well as for infrastructure purposes from European Union, America, WB, IMF & other humanitarian groups as well as some altruistic governments every year to help destitute Ethiopians. Nevertheless, 90% of the money could not reach to the intended target, instead use by Meles & his TPLF racist group rulers for their personal extravagant and lavish life. Of course the TPLF ethno-apartheid rulers relocate the Aid money and invest it for their own benefit as a form of apartment buildings and small businesses to make more profit and fill their pocket. On the other side, the poor and destitute Ethiopians not only unable to see the money collected in their name, but also they are forced to leave their land for foreign investors (Arabs, Indians & Chinese )with gun point. of course the TPLF ethno-apartheid rulers accumulating million dollars every year by leasing those lands, which have been taken from the poor Ethiopian peasants. The poor peasant pushed to the side without any hope, and condemn to misery until the last breath. For Allah sake! Is this makes you proudly to say that your tribal leader was blessed to be eligible to receive another 3 billion dollars? What a shame…

Anyhow, your usual mumbo-jumbo doesn’t make any difference but expose your callout and savage character and at the same time it strengthens the victims’ camp. Regardless of your group tribally twisted rhetoric as well as your naïve advice of challenging the monsters (senior Ethiopian govt. officials); Ethiopians has repeatedly shown their detestation toward the TPLF Ethno-fascists and of course reject their tribally dogma unanimously; however, the narrow TPLF survived with intimidation and terror, which would not continue forever. Regardless, of yours’ and their unfounded and preposterous claim, there are so many Ethiopian Americans who shares Abebe Gelaw’s view and who are willing to fight against the TPLF ethno-apartheid rulers along with the collaboration of Ethiopians in Ethiopia. Surly the time would come and of course the TPLF tribal rulers would be hunted like the German Nazi, Gestapo and SS mercenaries and face judgment in front of the people they slaughtered. It is a matter of time and the TPLF criminal group would pay the price for the crime they have been committed, and of course every Ethiopians are awaiting the right time to retaliate and reclaim this/her country. The blood of innocent Ogden , Afar, Gambela, Oromos,Welayita, Gurage, Amahra, Tigray, Benshangul and other citizens are on the hand of narrow TPLF associates & their collaborators, and of course nothing heal such deep wound unless seen the perpetrators face justice in public.

Very insightful article written with much passion. I don’t know what is going on in Ethiopia but this makes me intrigued. I’m going to look into it and let my colleagues here at Cornell University know. Please don’t stop your passionate writing, it is very motivational.

Abebe Gelaw must be shameful for barking out loud on an international arena. No matter how much Gimboat-7 and its running dogs must have groomed and paid him; his reckless shout declaring no food; but freedom for anarchists; in the name of professional journalist’s dogma was just an empty bluff; or a balloon swinging aimlessly in the air. What Abebe Gelaw did was simply embarrass himself and Gimboat-7; period. As far as I’m concerned His Excellency Prime Minister Zenawi has all throughout his life been excelling with achievements of excellence. For this he deserves unspeakable rewards from all Africans. Yes regardless of the maid-like talks we read on Amharic tribal tribunes in Diaspora, PM Meles has appeared on several international political arenas and won recognition. So as far as I’m concerned Gimboat-7 fans and their running Shaabia servants like Birhanu Nega, Andargachew Tsigie, Eskkindr Nega, Gilgel Abebe Gelaw, Elia Kifle, and Tamagn Beyene are nothing but mouth pieces of Issayas Afework that bark for whoever pays them fat-enough dollars. I cannot simply admire hooligans actions like the open barking of Abebe Gelaw as it was cowardice by action. Instead of singing blaming songs and dancing in the rain condemning TPLF/EPRDF groups for the last 20 years with disgusting Diaspora immature, uncoordinated and unprofessional thoughts all the time; stand-up, move your ducked ass and do something. Labeling Bar-rumor congeners land Gimboat-7 running dogs like Eskindir Nega, Eias Kifle, Tamagn Beyene, Almayehu G. Miriam, Reyot Alemu, and Andwalem Arage as terrorist and sentencing them up to life imprisonment is justifiable as these gums are soft-ware terrorists under the guise of journalists; and under the Mantle of Amharic supremacy. No Diaspora Toxicologist, or Carpologist or for that matter Parkolgists can dare come a bit closer to PM Meles Zenawi; leave alone to challenge PM Meles Zenwai’s professionalism in governance and fair play of politics. Those who talk much do not know how to play their political cards. I strongly believe the Ethiopian Court Action is legally and constitutionally appropriate. The likes of Abebe Gelaw, Elias Kifle and Tamagn Beyene have opened their beggar Kiosks to collect alms in the name of opposition groups and bark for the money they get.
Whatever the Diaspora Toxicologists and Carpologists may glorify, Abebe Gelaw’s barking in front of the global community was, nothing, but a pure childish and imprudent act. No body is singing about it; except the desperate Diaspora dogs; who sound like a dying monster screaming loud to be heard for help; but I vain. No one inside Ethiopia has the time to give its ears for such fudge and childish cries. For most people in the countryside Abebe Gelaw’s shout sounds like a Go jam song out of the blue. It is nothing but DC-fabricated act of village-boys ganging up to play GENNA. What the bragging Amharic miss the point is that: freedom does not come by the talk of mouth but by fighting for it. In this competitive world you don’t beg for freedom. You compete, fight and get it. Yes, what you get is what you see. The Ethiopian government in is constitution clearly states that soft-ware terrorism in the guise of opposition is punishable. If these Gimboat-7 talking machines kept on opening their mouths wide and shouted all filthy maters; thinking Birhanu Nega could save them they made a mistake and they pay for it. The fair political play nowadays is: What you see is what you get. If they saw Birhanu Nega as their savior; so be it they and he are ending-up in jail for their well orchestrated soft-ware-terrorism; period.

Comment from: Shergaz [Visitor]  

Come on leady, the guy was presenting the true story with the video!!. The heckler was taking his own video; edit it the way he wanted, and told us a lie. Please be realistic, we never hear this from any other news except himself, there were a lots of news agencies covering the G8 meeting, non of them reported as a news, that tells us no body gives him any attentions. As the results he was repeating again and again, even he made a poster of himself as a celebrity to meet him In Dallas for soccer tournament (that is why I canceled my tripe to Dulls this year) . I don’t know who do he think he is?. Remember there is thousands of Ethiopians are living in US they are taking their own judgment about this. But Do not trying to take a side with the heckler, he is A BIG Fate liar and Lunatic. In fact I read an email titled “Senator Johann McCain & Mr. Meles Zenawi” have a true story read it. You can have your own political side, but if you are responsible citizen who think for the future generations, you should not appreciate this jerk hacker. Please
“Once again few Diaspora hatred politicians show no class and lack of civility. In the middle of 2012 G8 meeting one person started yelling when the Ethiopian prime minster Mr. Meles Zenawi started to speak, about food and agriculture for 80 million people. The PM didn’t even give him that much attention; he looked at him, and continues to make his points. The guy calls himself “journalist” is humiliated himself, not the Prime Minster. Imagine by heckling the prime minster did he stops any thing? Did he make any differences? the answer is No. This guy chooses to yell than ask him a question in a professional manner because he has nothing to say. Even when the guy yells, the prime minster continues speaking, watch the original video /not the one he makes up.
Just like Italian fascist journalists erupts into jeering, heckling and whistling on, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, the guy clames to be “Ethiopian” did the same historical mistake. But just like the prime minster Mr. Meles Zenawi , Haile Selassie was ignored the hecklers, and waited calmly and continues his speech at the League of nations.
The funny thing is there were lots of news agencies covering G8 meeting, the guy was totally ignored by all major news sources around the globe. His barking story is not covered by any of them. Since he didn’t get all the attention he wanted, he kept on talking on and on about it. He kept one misleading the immigrant community as if he did a right thing. Such kind of disruption is not only silly in American society but also illegal
The world knows the Ethiopian PM is smart, and a great public speaker and comfortable to answer any question. Unlike any other governments in the history of Ethiopia, current Ethiopian government did lots of developments in the country, that is way the Obama government recognizes this progress and pledge to support it.
We expect grown man to show respect, self-control for others and their constituents, their behavior should be above reproach and should be a model for our children; this guy left a terrible impression of how an Ethiopian/ Habsha ‘gentlemen’ conducts himself in public.
As the guy went out of his mind, the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Dr. Rajiv Shah also told him “ok we hear you, thank you” and calls security to restrain him.
What is the true story he didn’t mention in his propaganda? The true story is , after, the Lunatic guy restrained by the security, he was arrested and put in the custody until the meeting is over; finally, he released after he signed an agreement to get psychiatrist evaluation ,and banned from the premises and from any kinds of meeting permanently . But he told to his Diaspora community on the YouTube (in his language, Amharic) he was actually nodded by one of the law enforcement officers, and rubs his shoulder and let him go free; even he said one of the law enforcement officer told him he was in Ethiopian, he understand what he is talking about and told him he made his point. That is not true at all!. Please see DC public record, we are looking to hear from the officers about the incident. On May 2012, another Protester interrupts on the Memorial Day ceremony in San Diego as the former presidential candidate Senator Johann McCain speaks, just like a prime minster Mr. Meles Zenawi, McCain, totally ignores the heckler. And McCain simply calls the heckler “jerk” as person is escorted out, he and continues his speech.
So, the guy trying to heckle the Ethiopian prime minster Mr. Meles Zenawi at G8 meeting, 2012 in Washington DC, is simply a big Jerk too, and liar”.
The truth from DC.

Rosa Abadir,
What is your point? You blubbered so much crap. Remember, Intelligent people use few words to make their points. YOu used several paragraphs and most of us have no idea. Also please be aware that comparing any one with Hitler and what ever happened to the Jews is an insult to the Jews. YOu don’t know anything about history if you are comparing Meles to Hitler. You are not only offending Ethiopians supporting Meles but several million Jews who still feel the scar put on them by the Nazis.
To come back to your inconsistent article, It’s human to read some ones feeling. Just because he (Samuel Gebru) doesn’t agree with Abebe Gelaw’s behavior, You don’t have to crucify him as if he is the enemy of Ethiopia. Learn to understand that there are several factors that molds someones mind to think in certain way. If you treat everyone who does not agree with you like an enemy, you are not any different from the Derg and red terror squad that we witnessed in our life time.
Leave the Jews and their suffering by the atrocious crimes perpetrated to them by the Nazis.

You’re either extremely ignorant or extremely illiterate. You obviously just read the title of Samuel M. Gebru’s article. While I, who actually read the whole thing, didn’t exactly agree with the article in its entirety I understood what Samuel was saying because (well first off I actually READ the article) he in no way, shape, or form praises or attempts to protect Meles. Samuel is probably one of the greatest active youth voices against the tyranny of the Ethiopian government and for liberty and justice in Ethiopia and has done more to educate his peers than you probably ever have. His article states simply that Ethiopian Senior Officials such as Meles come to North America and Europe on what he himself calls “propaganda tours” and that by reckless (though understandably impassioned and aggravated) outbursts like the one demonstrated by Gellaw the purpose and message behind the protests to Zenawi and the government’s rule is lost in the insane shouts of someone who will from then on be seen by the rest of media and viewers as just some raving lunatic, who can be degraded to the same level as the anti-fur protester who throws flour on stars like Kim Kardashian, losing his credibility as a professional journalist and rendering himself irrelevant.

I understand and feel Abebe Gellaw’s anger and frustration and I don’t condemn him for losing control, but he DID lose control. His protests would have been more meaningful, relevant, and heard if he had waited until the question portion of the Summit and calmly and collectively questioned Meles on his wrongs. By calling him out in a professional sense and allowing others to take him seriously, instead of as an irrelevant ranter, then he could have actually caused Meles to have to answer truthfully about what he does or show him in the act of trying to cover his ass and reveal his presence at these summits and nice sounding speeches for what they really are, propaganda. It doesn’t matter that we as Ethiopian people know that what Meles does is wrong if we can’t get the rest of the world to see it.

All Samuel is saying, and rightfully so, is that if those of us who are supposed to be our greatest and most intelligent representatives and voices against the wrongs of the government are acting in what will be viewed by the rest of the world’s media and officials as childish behavior how are we ever going to get them to take our grievances seriously. It’s just as bad as someone who is supposed to be a distinguished Congressman yelling out “You lie!” during Obama’s healthcare address to Congress. Many radical Republicans probably looked at Rep. Joe Wilson as a hero for that but to the rest of the world and through the showing of it in media, he looked (and rightfully so) like a ranting and idiotic fool. Unlike Wilson who called out Obama for no good reason but to hold back progress, Gallew’s anger and claims were justified, but his expression of them was just as seemingly idiotic and foolish placing him in a similar category of representation by media and reception by the rest of the world.

And all these Woyanne comments and statements about Zenawi being Samuel’s “tribal leader” only make this article sound like the ignorant rant of a racist and self segregating fool. I’m 100% Gondere, 100% Amhara, but all that really matters is that I am 100% Ethiopian and that’s all that should matter. Your ENTIRE article is irrelevant because there is no basis for any of the claims you make against Samuel’s. And you don’t even really highlight Meles’s wrongdoings with any factual information. Instead of shedding light on the atrocities of the government and Meles Zenawi you are attacking a positive and inspirational Ethiopian youth who has devoted himself to mobilizing, empowering, and uplifting Ethiopians, especially the youth in this country so that they may go back and help develop their own. Instead of paying any attention to the positive work he does and encouraging him and his efforts you read only the title of this one article (of the many he has written educating readers about the problems with the Ethiopian government) and create a completely fabricated version of it in your mind and in this article so that you can assault him with tribal and age discriminatory remarks promoting even more ignorance and separatism amongst our people.

Reading this and the comments in support of it actually made me sick, and if this is coming from the older generation than I’m glad that we have people like Samuel in ours, otherwise our people would be truly lost. We’re better than that.

go back to school

She is right. Samuel has been running his mouth for a long time now. I have never agreed with him but I defended to so many because he was a kid but it is time to grow up. I use to wander who his parents were because they never stopped to teach him how to listen. You people who support him need to tell him to go to school and focus. He cant grow if he doesn’t learn respect. Tell him to stick with one school and finish.
