The displaced Ethiopians
By Yilma Bekele
I am sure we are all familiar with what is known as the ‘melting pot’ concept when it comes to describing how America functions. The term is a metaphor ‘for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous, the different elements "melting together" into a harmonious whole with one common culture.
The concept was popularized in the 1900 with the influx of immigrants from all over. It was challenged in 1970’s with some questioning the idea of total meld and wanted to preserve cultural differences as valuable part of a civil society and proposed an alternative metaphor the ‘mosaic or salad bowl’ concept. This term has come to dominate the Canadian experience. It proposes the mix of ethnic groups, languages and cultures that can harmoniously co-exist. It advocates multiculturalism.
Both approaches have managed to build a robust and prosperous society. Over the weekend I had a medical issue and went to the hospital. I, the patient is an immigrant from Ethiopia. My admitting nurse was another Ethiopian. The nurse that took my vitals was from Nigeria. The person who took my x-ray was from Eritrea. My emergency room doctor was a white American. The individual who took me thru the discharge process was a female Hispanic immigrant. The hospital functioned like a well-oiled machine.
I was impressed. It made me see how the US has managed to become such a big powerhouse. There is plenty that needs to change but it is obvious the system is based on a solid ground of willingness to accommodate change while not losing a common vision of one country one people.
It did not take me long to come back to ground. My homeland came to jar me back to reality. The ‘ethnic cleansing’ in southern part of my country was a reminder that all is not well on the home front. The term ‘ethnic cleansing’ is a loaded term. I am not invoking it lightly. But it to so aptly describes the plight of our citizens that happen to be ‘Amhara’ and their current tribulations. The Benji Maji Zone Administration has seen it fit to expropriate their land and property and drive them out of their homes. Go back to your Kilil they said. Today they are refugees in their own country. The actual term is ‘internally displaced.’
“Internally displaced” is a strange concept to grasp. How could you be a refugee in your own land? In an emerging Democracy like Ethiopia anything is possible. The government led by TPLF (Tigrai Peoples Liberation Movement) is the Party in charge. When they took power they were not into the concept a ‘melting pot’ nor did they appreciate the idea of a ‘salad bowl.’ Our ḥizbāwī weyānē ḥārinet tigrāy ሕዝባዊ ወያኔ ሓርነት ትግራይ leaders were enamored by the concept of ‘Apartheid’. Building enclaves was their brilliant solution. The plight of the Amhara’s is Apartheid in practice. That is what Meles Zenawi is constructing in Ethiopia. Separate disjointed entities at war with each other while his single ethnic based party fans the hate flame.
Do you think I am being an alarmist? Do you think I am falling into the trap of ethnic identification? I do not think so. If people are forced to flee due to their ethnicity be it in Benji Maji, Gambella, Sarajevo or Kigali you have to call it what it is ‘ethnic cleansing.’ The Serbian Military’s attempt to drive Moslems out of Sarajevo was defined as practicing ‘ethnic cleansing.’ Hutus targeted Tutsis and the blood bath was judged as an ugly attempt at ‘ethnic cleansing.’ During the border war between Ethiopia and Eritrea both countries carried out limited form of ‘ethnic cleansing’. May I remind you some of us showed total indifference while a few cheered. Ethnic cleansing is an International crime. It is crime against humanity. What has happened to the Amhara’s of Benji Maji Zone is ‘ethnic cleansing.’ Their only crime is being an Amhara and finding them selves in the wrong Apartheid designated ‘Home Land”.
This abhorrent crime is committed by the TPLF party, which is led by Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. They set such system in place. They designed it. Some are claiming the TPLF party has gone rouge and become the party of one family. I beg to differ. The TPLF was born a monster, grew up to be a monster and will die as a monster. It has never ever done anything that could be seen as a positive contribution to the people of Tigrai in particular and the people of Ethiopia in general.
Kilil is not a new idea. It was copied from the book of the Nationalist Party of South Africa. The White people’s party. Their creation of the ‘Apartheid’ system set up ten Bantustans or homeland for Black people. It kept the Blacks apart. It made them strangers to each other. There was no Black South African but an ethnic based homeland citizen. Leaders like Chief Buthelezi of the great nation of Kwa Zulu were reduced to serving the White masters at the expense of their people. Exile some, corrupt a few and bully the rest was the hallmark of Apartheid. Kilil is the son of Apartheid. In today’s Ethiopia Kilil defines who you are and that of being an Ethiopian is secondary. Benji Maji is the outcome of Kilil at work. You area a citizen of your Kilil not your Country.
TPLF’s system is working like a charm. The folks displaced from Benji Maji are living proof. The cultivation of hate has made us mistrust each other. The insistence on separate Kilil’s has caused us plenty of civil strife. No place is immune from this sickness. Even places of higher learning such as the University and Kilil based Colleges are the hot bed of ‘ethnic’ clashes. I am writing about it. It has become our everyday experience. We are in the process of becoming strangers to each other. The meaning of being an Ethiopian is being deflated, downsized, given negative connotations and made something to hide out of shame.
Why some people in leadership do that should be left to psychologists, social scientists and historians to explain. Our problem is here and now. We are all affected by this devaluation of a beautiful proud country. We are not the first to be under this type of calamity. Look Iraq was once a proud nation. Today Iraqis avoid Iraq. Syria is entering that zone of madness on a national scale. Ethnic strife is the common thread between the two. Kilil is the breeding ground for ‘ethnic strife’. The TPLF party is the fertilizer.
Are you inoculated against this virus? What do you think when you hear of Benji Maji? Upset? Depressed? Confused? Hope less? You see the current leaders of Ethiopia are free to do what they want. The only way to stop them is by showing them there are consequences to their action. There is a price to pay for bad deeds. The people organized around Timret are building an all-inclusive Front as a solid foundation for our future Ethiopia. ESAT has managed to be our voice. Andenet is still operating under dire circumstances. All these groups and organizations are helping the people of Benji Maji by doing their share so there will be no more Benji Maji’s. Change will not happen with out involvement. We can work together as one to create a “melting Pot’ or a ‘Salad Bowl’ or continue on building Apartheid. It is up to you. Show me rather than tell me.
woyant hates Amhara- founder and uniter of Ethiopia….if you live in London and join woyane membership you get upto 80% off tax to take cars and other goods….they trying to buy diaspora with money….hope the day of their ending comes soon….they bought soldiers, then civil servants, now after diaspora….they are insane, print money, while inflation is above 30% etc
The funniest thing is that our enemies like you (Yilma) do not know our names. Yilma watch out. What is after ‘L’ is ‘F’, not ‘M’. So our name is Tigray People’s Libration Front (TPLF). Got it, Yilma and Yilma like people? Over the weekend I had a medical issue and went to the hospital. I, the patient is an immigrant from Ethiopia
As I believe Neftegninet was the main cause for their leaving the area.
1/ Is there any thing heard from the other side of isle?
2/What is the main cause for the people who displaced from the area?
I believe this people are emigrated from Amhara region who occupied the southern fertile land by the help of Mr. H.Silasie. The funniest thing was, the little church Debtera who had little tiny Dawit in his hand was believed by the regime as a teacher also had robbed vast fertile land from the locals and still claiming ownership. What a jock?
Also I believe the displaced people are performed as uncontrollable who might be insulting the locals are created intolerance; if so, it is well done. If they are respecting the local’s culture, tradition, religion and their identity then, I don’t think that, the locals throw away the Amhara people from the area. It will continuous if they are kept bragging and threat to the local’s future survival. Time is up for the Amharea people to whom never walk up to smell coffee.
Yilma Bekele was one of the immigrant’s sons who run away from Ethiopia at the time of Derg revolution. His grand father had huge fertile land which they robbed by the help of Mr. H.Silasie, and repossessed by Derg; now his claim is not about the displaced people but the land which he was evicted.
Yeteje bet shelle Amahara princes, Anchi AQUMADAM LEMAGN YEGERED LIG, if I were Dorze or any person from the south, I am proud to be whom I am, and I am here and there to defend my identity and dignity without wavering by chasing the people like you for their unleashed toxic mouth. I never and ever copy and paste my name or my identity like yenesew Gebre (yetwust sim), I promise you, I will never and ever bent down to Amhara people until they accept the realty by paying what ever the cost is.
Even EPRDF left the power; the locals will never allow neft to play their stupid scrooge game.
40.000 Oromos are being displaced in Borena. Tigres should stay in Desert-Tigray. They brought nothing but Misery,Famine and Disease to Ethiopia!
We will liberate Ethiopia from lice infested Tigrewoch.
Any human displacement is a tragedy for the individuals undergoing the great stress. But the reality on the ground concerning this sorry displacement is caused by the self serving and unjust LAND GRABBER amhara elites of ours who left the local land owners impoverished, bitter, and helpless for too long. On top of that the locals, ontop of losing their land and their power, were/are insulted and dehumanized (psychological warfare)by the land grabbers just for the purpose of breaking their moral of rsistance and imopse on them eternal slavery.
This is not the fault if individual good poor Amharas or Gurages but the fault of the Amhara patriotic ruling elites who put in place a tyrranical minority dictatorial system of exploitation of the majority by the tiny Amhara minority elites, a system being inherited by the tplf minority, medified to fit the tplf narrow needs and being used for its own exploitation purposes.
The author (Yilma Bekele) is ranting endlessely because the system which his minority patriotic Amhara elites built for land and human grabbing of the majority by the minority has been taken over by the tplf and reducing Amhara elites’ over inflated political, economic, social, military, etc. dominations. Why is it that it must always be the case that Amharas and others conveniently infiltrate, settle and willfully degrade and exploit Oromo human and material resources while there are no traces of Oromos having any opportunity of setteling and doing any thing in Amhara areas at all? Democracy and justice for all means that we enteract uniformely in all directions and sharing also what we have equaitably and fairly. The dictatorial policy of “What is mine is mine, what is yours is also mine” unjust policy will not bring peace and harmony. This is what author, Yima Bekele, calls the “melting Pot” where the self serving ideology of “What is mine is mine, what is yours is also mine melts in to a seamless single “MINE ALONE” meaning unitary Amhara minority governmental system with amhara religion religion, Amhra language, amhara unidirectional settlements and penetration of all other people under the dark cover and code name of Ethiopiawinet.
Genuine democracy, unity within diversity and justice for all is the way and great highway for building tolerance, the new good government, sustainable development and the true island of peace and prosperity for all.
Dagnachew and to the other bandas,
What is up with Agames and prostitution? Were you people mass-raped or something?
I believe it is about time the Precious Amhara tribes concentrates on developing their breathtakingly beautiful highlands, over 90% fertile land, utilize their vast water, natural resources, develop their high potential of Gold, Opal, oil, Tourist, human resources and create strong Amhara nation. Let weyane flog the Dorzes of South aka Dagnachew koru like sheep’s to Saudi, China, India & make their future generations contemporary slaves. Dagnachew certainly has a slave mindset, single digit IQ, he deserves to be one. It is about time the Amhara tribe stop fussing too much on national feelings blah blah & think about their identity for a change! I don’t take any garbage in the name of UNITY, I would rather have an independent Amhara nation than having primitives insult me. Mengedun Cherk Yarglachu! Hasta La Vista!
@ Dagnachew Koru aka the foolish naive Pente Dorze
You Weyane wannabe spasticated Donkey! To start with, it is the Amhara tribe who dragged your naked primitive A$$, took you out of the jungle you were living in, worshipping trees a$$hole. Most of the southern tribes are STILL surviving like domestic animals, running around bare naked, climbing trees, bathing with mud, elasticating their mouth as big as soccer pitch. Frankly, most of the south are living in much worse conditions than Kenya’s Safari animals with no clean water, no electricity, no decent food, no decent housing, no education, no NOTHING. Here you are bragging about south this & south that? Who on planet earth do you think you are claiming to be south rep while most of south people are still living like animals and wouldn’t have a clue who you are? Only the towns where the Amharas had settled, developed from scratch are viable towns. Where the Amharas didn’t venture to, still remains like a big, discarded land/zoo.
Stop bragging about phantom wealth, fertile land this, fertile land that as if you are capable of feeding your region let alone anything else? It is weyane’s hype, to drive strong minded Amharas out of Southern, other regions so that they can flog your weak a$$. TPLFs are using your dumb a$$ as proxy to attack Amhara because they know they can play naive, dumb folks like you like soccer ball.
As for Neftegna, it means people with weapon, guns troops, fighters! Not people with bibles like the slave trading pentes. The name Neftegna is Nothing to be ashamed of but be proud of 100%. Amharas, Tigres, Oromos, Welamos, Gugares, including your Tona, Jufar etc were ALL super Neftegnas who went from one corner of primitive Ethiopia to another to develop, build a country with structure. You have the nerve to talk about Neftegna 24/7. One Neftegna is worth 1000s of Naive Pente, Northerner wannabe Dorzes like you. BTW, Before you ridicule Yenesew Gebre, the name you are fronting here is NOT Dorze name either. Dagnachew is Amhara name/word, retarded blimp head.
You are one foreign Pente mercenary Cadre on big mission to tarnish the reputation of precious, ancient, holly, sacred Ethiopian Orthodox church and one of Ethiopia’s MAJOR tribes, the intelligent, clued up, historic tribes the Amhara. We are the largest tribes, only few million behind Oromos. Therefore, we are more than capable of being a NATION. Who wants to live with retarded Dorzes, weyane soccer balls like you?
The Orthodox religious is NOT an Amhara religion, 96% of Tigray, over 50% of Gurage, welayita etc are Orthodox. In fact, Orthodox is second major religion next to Islam in Oromia, the same applies to various southern tribes so I have no idea why you are fixated on Amhara being majority Orthodox? How about your masters TPLFs? Orthodox has followers from corner to corner of Ethiopia! Also the orthodox religious figure you try to ridicule are much holly, religious than your satanic gibberish mumbling, money worshipping institutions & its Lucifer’s children subjects. The peadiphiles, the slave traders, rapists, serial killers, liars, materialistic evil thieves, racists trash who work damn hard, day in and day out to keep the black race destitute, bottom pile of planet earth are part of your institution NOT orthodox. Using dumb, retarded jet black a$$ mercenaries like you to attack yourself/kinds.
… Beggar is your primitive a$$ not me, chimp. You may need to evolve for another 3000 years to catch up! Cyber comic

@ Ewunetu Bogale [Visitor] and Dagnachew Koru [Visitor]
Ye-Hagos Weshoch nice try pretending to be someone else is a common practice of TPLF dogs. Why trying so hard to hide your Ethnic affiliation? I’m sure by now most of the bloggers here and else where understood who’s the enemy of Ethiopia is clearly? We know who’s behind this and many more justice wont is long.
Ethiopians cannot live and work any other province (region) of their choice except their own ethnic region. Come on, in the 21st century, it is disgusting! 20,000 miles away from home we live with respect and dignity with all freedom of movement to start a new life any where in the country. Ethiopians in their own country CAN’T? Do you know? No other county or government on EARTH treats its citizens this way except Tigrye.
This is the answer for the shelle who refused to raise her three children.
Your cheap unwanted no where to go overcrowded Merkato ass talking unfound story, you might know or not, I really don’t know, your buddies the so called wana be boss still under debelo running on their barefoot after their very expensive one goat. Have you ever watched the recent show which was on Dire tube,your barefoot herder on Dire tube with debelo? How come over three thousand years’ old civilized people under debelo? We haven’t seen this in Italy, Greek, Turk, and Babylon. How come yours the only story with manual ox farming some where in the bush? Your three thousand years old civilization made you to run all over the world and especially in stinky Arab ass kitchen as the modern slave who keeps jumping from 12th floor high-rise for suicide. Today your number is keep growing in Kuwait, Saudi Arabiya, Qatar, Lebanon, and etc… Is that not modern slavery? Have you ever seen any Dorzes, or Kenbatas, or Wolayita, or Gamos, or Kefichos, or Mijian, or Dawuros, or Males, or Gofas, or Mursis, or Benas or Gelbees seen in the Arab’s kitchen? For me you are insult for my country. The abuse is keep growing over and over on you, because you can’t afford to over throw your oppressors instead what you had is simple word which you are bragging on the name of old terracing farming Minilik’s story. Show me yours? AHIYAWUN FERTO DAWULAWUN?Ethiopia is belongs to all of us or get the f… out of there.
Your slavery tradition never stopped in the modern world or in ancient days. First the Slavery has been started with you and your people, wasn’t not true? The Egyptians enslaved you for 400 years? Today part of the Israelites who have been enslaved by Egyptians, were ignoring you as lower class slave. Is that not the cause which made you to follow the Orthodox Church? Did Orthodox Church was Originated in Ethiopia? No, it was not, but its origin was Egypt. You learnt, copied and pasted from them. Most history which you are trying to brag is copied and pasted from Egyptians. After the Israelites freedom from Egyptians, your people end up immigrating to Northern Ethiopia. That means, or it shows that you have no single land in Ethiopia, and Ethiopian is belongs to the endogenous people.
Immigrating has wont stop in your culture, it is part of your house keeping procedure, Let me give you some few examples.
You said “your fertile land” in where about? What you had is only kubet. Is that why in 1960s over 5000 families from Gonder settled in south of Wolayita in the place called Menuka, who speaks flaunt walyitigna? Over 8000 Woloyes families settled in Dana one and Dana two, and over 4000 families from Menz settled in the Place called Wajifo, who have seen as very poor? Today their number is over sixty thousand what you call that? You talk too much; you forgot you’re all over scattered neftegnas. It is not the only mess in south, but it is also all over Ethiopia, people watching, I don’t want to tell you about the sin which your people did to the Oromo, Guragie, Sidama, Shanqila, Anfar, and Somali, the history witnesses. Watch your loose mouth?
The above mentioned Southern people have never kept one silicha Teff for centuries for show off outside their door step of their house. They have every thing, they are growing, and they are at the same standard as you. Today go out and see what you rural life looks like?
Based on the church, any thing which the south worshiping is very sweet, it is original, the living God, the living culture, not Adokebre which looking for Gebsima, Wosera. The south don’t believe in blood sacrifices like old Egyptians tradition, they don’t believe in coffee mug, they don’t believe in any different horses who wants boys or girls, they don’t believe in forgetting the savior Jesus and worshiping the mother, they don’t believe in drinking whisky, wine, Teg, or any alcohol in the church where the lord worshiped, the south never and ever worship cut and paste from Egyptians tradition which used to be your master. You don’t admit your embarrassment, think, how many of you are in south?
Today when I am telling you this, I standing on my four foot where I have been made with out wavering, because I don’t fear for anything, I am standing on own land.
Your problem is, you have lots people all over Ethiopia who have no where to go, unless or otherwise you have to convince the endogenous people whether Oromo or Guragei, or Sidama, or South. The political power which you are dreaming is just dream, you point is clear, if you don’t have power or neft, you scared that people will throw you away from where ever you are. We will free ourselves like Tigray.
Neft means gun; neftegna means the little tiny guy who oppresses the majority by the help of gun. You don’t teach me that, I speaks better Amharic than you anchi gorada arogit.
Your evil tegbet stupid inkaselaitia wore, make me to talk unnecessary many words which were true, but I advise you to refrain or dress more wurdet. Live with us or get out of us!!!!
If we believe that there is a country called Ethiopia, this is a serious mistake. tomorrow, gurages will be displaced, Tigreans will be displaced.It is a fool who think that a Tigrean in Gonder will live in peace when others are displaced in other parts of the country.
Dagnachew Koru (visitor),
The noble sons and daughters of the Amhara neftegnas deserve great admiration and unwavering respect for domesticating the inhabitants of the wild south and bringing them up to the standard of a civilized human being.
The South is one of the Amhara’s territories: It is the Amhara who turned the wilderness of the South into a fertile land, from the dens of wild donkeys into the homes of Mali Goftas, Aba Jiffars, and many other well-respected Oromo leaders and educators. It is the Amharas who taught the southerners not to dwell on cannibalism but to depend on vegetarianism or animal meats or sea fish instead of human flesh. It was the genius Amharas who invited them to live in a house rather than to live in caves; therefore, the Amhara neftegnas have been the providers, the protectors, the leaders, the trainers, and the close advisors of their adopted sons and daughters – the Oromo people.
One cannot say in his right mind that the Amharas are the occupiers of Oromia because Ethiopia is the Amhars’, and Oromia is in Ethiopia; therefore, Oromia belongs to the Amharas too, the first explorers of the Oromo jungle, and the Amharas are always willing to share what they have with the other Ethiopian tribes but never with the Ethiopian Muslims who are the main causes for ousting the few Amhara neftegnas from their Oromia farm lands. Of course, Meles Seitanawi (Zenawi) is to blame for giving the Oromo Muslims the green light to drive out the Ethiopian heroes – the Amhara neftegnas – and leave them as squatters in their own land.
Meles knows very well since the Amhara neftegnas have been living in Oromia, the Oromos have opened their eyes and are awakened by learning the art of politics from the well-educated and well-cultured Amhara neftegnas, and the awakening of the Oromo people in cooperation with the Amhara neftegnas is a terrifying moment for Meles and his death squad; hence, he outgunned the Amhara neftegnas and drove them out from their homes without any compensations at all. Yes, the presence of the Amhara neftegnas in Oromia has been like a yeast that works through the whole batch of dough; however, the predicament of those neftegna Amharas who lost their properties demonstrates the arrant cruelty and inhumanity of Meles the brigand. He has welcomed a Yemeni Muslim dictator with all his wives, concubines, and with all their many Muslim children to live and dine with him in the Menelik II palace, and yet he has condemned the Amhara neftegnas to die in hunger and thirst by forcing them to abandon their hard-earned land their ancestors had discovered and tamed.
Mr. Dagnachew Koru or karu, let me educate you: you cannot call with your Sharia-tainted mouth and with your wudu-wetted ass but ceremonially unclean soul that magnanimous, famous, and universally renowned Emperor Haile Selassie (ፀሐዩ ንጉሥ and defender of Christianity “Mr. H. Silasie (sic).” You have to learn to respect the Ethiopian Christian kings, the Ethiopian Christian queens, princes, princesses, the Ethiopian Christian cultures, traditions, and histories. Without them, there is no Ethiopia; there is no South, North, East, and West. It is the history of the Ethiopian Christians that puts Ethiopia on the map of the world.
As a moonstruck and soi-distant person, you scribbled: “The funniest thing was, the little church Debtera who had little tiny Dawit in his hand was believed by the regime as a teacher also had robbed vast fertile land from the locals and still claiming ownership. What a jock?”
Whether he was a little Church- or a big Church-Debtera, he was carrying the Book of Psalms (መጽሐፈ ዳዊት that says: “The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever” (Psalms 23).
I am so glad he was not carrying the cursed Quran that says: “I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes” (Quran 8:12).
The Debtera you disparage is one of the highly educated Ethiopian learned men; the Debtera is not a robber like Meles Seitanawi (Zenawi) and his wife Jezebel (Azeb). The Debtera is a singer, a composer, a musician, and a servant of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. So it is not unusual to see a Debtera with his Dawit in his hand in the Christian land of Ethiopia, and he is free to travel from place to place to teach the word of God, not to take some one’s property. Taking some one’s property is the duty of the Woyanne regime and the Woyanne’s friend, Al Amoudi and his likes.
Mr. Dagnachew, you warn the noble Amhara to respect the local’s culture, tradition, religion and their identity. Can you be specific what the local’s culture, tradition, religion, and identity are? As far as I know, the South has replaced its heathen religion, tradition, culture, and identity with the refined Amhara culture, tradition, religion, and identity. The South’s identity is not paganism any more; it is Christianity, and the Southern paynim is a foreign entity, and it will disappear sooner or later because Ethiopia is a land of Christians, not a land of paynim.
I doubt you are a normal person when you express your meaningless thoughts in a dictatorial manner: “Time is up for the Amharea (sic) people to whom never walk up to smell coffee.” Do you think the Amharas’ source of energy is the black coffee of the south? Or do you think the Amharas cannot survive without smelling coffee every morning? In fact, time is up for the southerners whose land is being sold out for the Arab merchants who enslaved them, abused them, and now they are coming to enslave them and to turn them to Islam, the most hated religion throughout the world.
As a frightened, desperate, and inferior person, you promised to yourself: “…I promise you, I will never and ever bent (sic) down to Amhara people….” The truth is a Muslim person never keeps his promises; I am sure if you see a wealthy Amhara neftegna passing by, you will bow down two or three times to the ground. If you are on a horse back, you will come down from your horse back and give the appropriate homage to the Amhara neftegna even though the Amhara neftegna didn’t ask you to bow down every time you saw him. However, it is a great privilege to respect the Amhara neftegna who fights for you to protect your land from foreign invaders.
By the way, the words your stinky mouth has uttered and poured out those uncalled for insulting words against the Amhara princess tell me who you are and from where you have come. You are, indeed, the son of the uncircumcised pagan father and heathen mother who have miserably failed to send you to a Christian school where you could have been trained the way a normal person is trained to respect himself and to respect other people. Your parents might have sent you to a Muslim school where the children are taught how to curse, how to cut someone’s hands, legs, and heads, and how to hate the Christians and the Jews as the false Prophet Muhammad (curse, not peace, be upon him) commanded them: “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends” (Quran 5:51).
The Amharas are gentle, friendly, cultured, well-mannered, orderly, and neat people who love frequenting their Churches to worship God. If it were not for the Amhara people, Ethiopia would be in the hands of the Italians or the bastard Muslims. I have no doubt in my mind the Amharas will come out safely and sound from the misery they are now in.
Elated by the displacement of the thousands of the Amhara people, Mr. Dagnachew expresses his joyous feelings by saying: “…it is well done.” I would say: “It is poorly done!” If Meles has expelled few thousands of innocent Amharas, there are millions of other Amharas in the South, in the North, in the East, in the West, and in every place in Ethiopia; therefore, don’t gasconade because of the shameful displacement of the Amharas from their home lands: When the lives of the Amhara people change for the better, then you and your entire family will eat crow.
why Nazret.com didn’t post other news on this topic, displacing Amharas? don’t they, 20,000 farmers, deserve more coverage?
The reason why the concept of melting pot is working or seems to work in the UK and North America is because the law and the Educational system work in order for every member of society to recognise, accept and respect the ethnic identity of other citizens, The reason why such laws and educational guidelines are needed in these societies is because multi-ethnicity and multi-linguality and multi-faith are not indigenous to these countries. In Ethiopia,on the contrary, such diversity is not a new phenomena. A long history of clashes and rivalries among the various ethnic and religious groups has made it possible for people of various colours to live under one flag. This is not to say some or most nationalities didn’t have problems with the now defunct political systems. In my understanding the present federal system is an attempt to address the issues of perceived and real, inequities among nations and peoples of Ethiopia. People who think the people of Tigray, are forcing their language and culture, (incidentally, I don’t see a big difference between the Amhara and Tigray languages and culture), they have every right to air their grievances. However, I believe it is not happening. What is happening is clash of interest between those who would like to see the perpetuation of the pre-EPRDF situation and those who think federalism is the way forward. Federalism has brought new phenomenon which manifest themselves in the form ethnic and religious clashes every so often. This in my opinionis a teething problem of a new system of administration. It also results from people’s awareness of unity with equality.
Ignoring most of what you said in this thread, I applaud you for this,"I believe it is about time the Precious Amhara tribes concentrates on developing their breathtakingly beautiful highlands, over 90% fertile land, utilize their vast water, natural resources, develop their high potential of Gold, Opal, oil, Tourist, human resources and create strong Amhara nation.”
I think this is the frame of mind that every nation and nationality should adopt, regardless of population and land sizes.I believe that is what the Amhara region is doing at the moment. while at the same time recognising similar aspirations of others.
I think it is high time that we start treating each other with respect. Comparing Ethiopia with the likes of the UK,and North America,(I am excluding other European countries deliberately, as I believe they have a long way to go regarding addressing their racist attitudes towards their black and Asian citizens), is not helpful without mentioning the atrocities they committed against their indigenous populations and those they forcibly shipped and sold in their lands. Mr.Bekele ignored to mention the disproportionate numbers of African Americans in prison or living in abject poverty in nations that are flowing with money.
I believe Ethiopia is a better melting pot of peoples that the US or Canada is.
@ Dagnachew Koru the retarded naive pente Dorze
Listen retard, no amount of filthy words would change who you really are? One big fat, retarded Tigray wannabe filth who thinks he has a say in what is going on in Ethiopia? Be it South, West, East or North! You still have ZERO say. You’re still under 96% Orthodox new Tigray Neftegnas not only whooping your a$$ with guns but borrowed US drones right under your dumb nose, selling everything you own you dirty bastard. Your sorry a$$ will be shot in a second if you dare oppose that. So, I have no idea where you get the impression that you are somebody? Think you rule your own destiny? The same Orthodox new Tigray Neftegnas are in charge of your empty skull, selling you, making your children contemporary slaves in Indian sugar cane farms, Arab rice farms? Who do you think you are? NOBODY!
Before you ask me if I had seen an Amhara with his traditional clothing on Dire Tube, have you seen 100s, 1000s of 8-15 year old under age Southerners, Westerners slaving away in Kurturi, Saudi star farms in scorching sun on CNN, Al Jazeera, BBC, RT etc? Yeah, that is your reality. Contemporary slave! Have you seen all the Dorzes, welamos, kembatas, oromos etc trying to flee the country via Metema to Sudan, Kenya, Somali Land, Yemen, African Jungles? Better still, do you know the number of Southern & Western Ethiopians plus Somali refugees in Minnesota? So much for staying put eh? Tramp.
Er’m, did you just say only Amhara Ethiopians immigrate out of Ethiopia? Or work for Arabs as contemporary slaves? Listen scum of the earth dumb clown, the girl who died in Lebanon recently that every Ethiopian is campaigning for is Oromo girl! There are 100s of 1000s of southerners, Oromos, Welamos, Dorzes, Kembatas, Gurages, Haderes etc immigrants all over the world, in Arabia slaving away in Arab Kitchens just as there are Tigrays & Amharas. However, as a donkey, you fail to acknowledge who the real Agents pimping out all these precious Ethiopians are? Your masters, Al Amoudi & Zenawi & Co!
Have you read that investigative report re the 45,000 Ethiopian contemporary slaves to be flogged to Saudi every months? Who Al Amoudi had put in charge for that mission? The only southerners spared from Arab, Indian slavery, are those still living in zoos. Even those are being displaced to hand their lands to foreigners so you better zip your filthy, trashy, low level mouth. You are still Orthodox Tigray slave, retard, the worse kind at that! Don’t feel the courage by displacements of Amharas from their rightful Homes, farms, businesses. You have Zero ability, say, power, means or courage to do such evil things. It is Zenawi & Co displacing them scared the hell out of those brilliant minds’s, fierce people who are resisting, refusing to be sold alongside with your contemporary slave a$$. Tramp Pente cadres like you open your filthy mouth behind your 2nd hand computers, probably with a family drinking milk straight from a cow, live like zoo animals. You think you speak better Amharic than than me? In your dreams bozo, riff raff zenawi’s dumpster.
As for ploughing with Ox, every developed nation used it not just Ethiopians. Ethiopians would have moved to tractors just like the rest of the world long time ago, embraces technology, better system if it wasn’t for one of your Jet Black a$$ Welamo products aka Mengistu H Mariam & his countless southern, Western troops who’d dragged the Amhara developed, built, structured, shaped country millions of steps back into the dark ages all in the name of communism, aligning the country with pre Minilik II era. Even as we speak, most of your people were better off during Minilik II.
You are a very slow person, I can’t even believe I am dragged into corresponding with such a filthy gimp, mentally challenged punk. You are so irrational, senseless, myopic extremely SLOW that you even make the SLOWEST of cadres here like EXAflops! Koshasha ye Koshasha Materakemia Dumpster Neh, Korkoro, corroded one at that
Don’t you dare assume for a sec that we will ignore your garbage here or anywhere. Your ignorance, trash will be matched, every step of the way.
