Truth about ESFNA A Response to Samuel Tibebe Ferenj (ESFNA) By Rosa Abadir
These days it’s widely more common to see some blatant individuals to come out and write, speak, narrate, and preach in favor or defense of some notorious criminals and corrupted individuals or groups. At the same route, the danger of becoming ubiquitous and invaluable to allegedly condemn someone using irrelevant basis.
I read your article entitled “In the Defense of ESFNA” a response to Mr. Ephrem Madebo on ethio media website. First of all, I would like to let you know that I am not writing this in defense of either Mr. Ephrem Madebbo or any other group. So, do not connect me with anything at any time. Also, I am not writing this just because I blindly oppose ESFNA executive members as you portrayed. However, I am here to correct your defected mind, a mind that reads a wrong file. And I am obliged to response to you or anyone who simply misinforming himself even the public and tried to cover the center errors created by ESFNA few executive members regarding Judge Birtukan nomination. I see you are dedicated your argument not only in opposition to Mr.Ephrem, but also against the websites that condemned the ESFNA executives’ wrong deeds surrounded by unlawful inverted decision. As you stated, you indiscriminately disparaged many Ethiopian websites for “bashing of ESFNA”, while you’ve never either specified or identified a single website with a precise argumentative error or a particular news, or articles covers ESFNA’s with its failure to backing your defense. This alone shows your incompetence to face the real challenges and used a silly approach to divert the truth using mocking evidence. At least you should follow some sort of humble criteria if you want to hold a debate.
I was also tremendously shocked and embarrassed by your overall critics. You criticized some type of unknown enormous group “there is an enormous movement, particularly in Washington, DC area to force Churches, Community centers, and other Tax exempt organizations to engage in political activities that are prohibited by IRS Code for section 501 (C) organizations.” However, you still failed to indicate any of these groups or churches along your detailed allegations. Unlike to your false accusations, it’s evident that there are a few churches, mosques, community centers, or groups that are manipulated by Ethiopian regime TPLF mercenaries and work always in favor of the regime in Diaspora. TPLF mainly selected these groups from our community via its multimillion dollar investments that enabled it to bribe famed personalities, expand its propaganda outlets, and plant skilled infiltrators. Therefore, at present you don’t have to get surprised if a few Diaspora Ethiopians blind folded by the carefully crafted deceptive TPLF elements, since it’s very challenging to differentiate the innocent Ethiopians from the enemies within.
Unfortunately, these TPLF spies work day and night, constantly adopt and improve strategies to cope up with the dynamics of domestic pressure as well as using the lack of common sense among our society in regard to politics vs. religion, or politics vs. any other socio issues, where the majority of Diaspora Ethiopians tend to fail to distinguish a variety of things from “politics” of the current game. As a result, TPLF mercenaries manipulate cultural and social values; diligently study the psychological and emotional states of many Ethiopians to help them design a trap, which is usually invisible for naïve and self interested Ethiopians in Diaspora. This group of Ethiopians around Churches, Mosques, and Community centers becoming valuable targets for TPLF as well as in some instances victims of their own static and limited knowledge with uncontrollable egos. TPLF often uses clever tactics create artificial heroes, fake dissenters, etc to keep Ethiopians in a state of constant confusion so they could be tricked as needed or even misled to a level of anointing false messiahs. One of the recent creations inside ESFNA is a group that works directly in favor of Sheik Mohammad Alamudi/TPLF; a fast cooked group chaired by a relatively corrupted money mongers few ESFNA executive committee members led by Abnet G/Meskel.
As you undoubtedly aware, ESFNA has directly received three hundred thousand dollars back in 2008 and over two hundred thousand dollars back in 2002 from the corrupted millionaire Alamudi, where ESFNA also wrote a thank you letter that was published on their website.*1 Simultaneously, it’s obvious that Sheik Mohammad Alamudi publicly announces that he become a member of EPRDF/Ehadig after he was baptized and convinced by Ambassador Twelde in London since 1991 after two month EPRDF controls power.*1 The main objective of Almudi thugs inside popular ESFNA is to destroy genuine members of ESFNA and replace with the people that serve Alamudi/TPLF main interests in Diaspora. As a result the recent reverse decision of ESFNA to withdraw nomination of Birtukan is a clear product of TPLF affiliated manipulation within the organization.
No one cannot claim ignorance for the fact that ESFNA principle is bounded by non-political and non-religious group abided by a 501 (c) tax exempted non-profit organization. However; unless someone like you wants to deflect this simple interpretation, any person can be nominated irrespective of the nominee’s political or religious view. Of course, this is carried out, as long as ESFNA doesn’t get involved in a direct support or endorsement of any political party or religious group. Therefore, the potential nominee can be individuals of good figures including a Doctor, an Accountant, an Athlete, an Artist, a Lawyer, an Engineer, a Philosopher, a Politician, a House Keeper, a Cashier, a Driver, etc with his/her respective religious belief. I can definitely sense ESFNA mission and rules, is perfectly direct and simple, direct enough to be comprehensible by anyone. I don’t know where you read such inappropriate information regarding character assassination of individuals. At least, be faithful to your points. So far, I have never heard or read nothing that demands ESFNA to bend or change their rules and regulations except those people like you who are diverting the main issues purposely to gain naïve followers using irrelevant concept. A concept that is selected by TPLF propaganda orchestrators, a notion of the word “Politics” hence the meaning become confusing among a few naïve Ethiopians in Diaspora who hate either to hear or listen it. Instead, most people including myself are urging ESFNA to stay firm, show unrevealing stand and to dwell by its rules and regulations from being easily influenced and manipulated by a few groups that serves the interests of the Ethiopian current regime.
I also would like to put one more case to expose some of the liar executive committee of ESFNA who are fooling you and the rest. A group that was able to trick you just because they issued a press release on their website. I can’t believe that a few Ethiopians including you take this press release of ESFNA as guidance for argumentative truth. In fact, the press release holds a number of contradictory statements regarding their reverse decision of Birtukan’s nomination. Here are some of the statements from the press release of ESFNA:
“ESFNA’s Board of Directors presented Judge Birtukan Mideksa to be our guest of honor, in the cultural category, at our October 17, 2010 meeting in Atlanta, GA. Other Board of Directors suggested that Judge Birtukan’s nomination goes against our by-law since she is a leader of a political organization. Judge Birtukan’s popularity was evident at the meeting and a spirited discussion took place. Since ESFNA prides itself to be a democratic organization and there was a nomination on the floor, a vote was taken and Judge Birtukan’s nomination narrowly passed.”
“However, in keeping with the non-political, non-religious and non-ethnic policy of ESFNA and also keeping in mind our non-profit status, which prohibits a non-profit organization from having any kind of political affiliation, some senior Board of Directors implored and urged the Board to review the decision.
After another round of heated and emotional discussion, the Board of Directors who supported the nomination withdrew their support.”
Look, I am not going to describe this kind of distortion and lie to one self and others. Indeed, how can Ethiopians take these lairs that are lying from toe to teeth as humble executive members of ESFNA? You sound like you are being stripped and brainwashed by the Alamudi thugs ESFNA elements dead propaganda. I will again give you the chance for the second time, and advise you to go back and read the conflicting statements written by ESFNA and compare each segment, words, and sentences and show me if they connect each at a center. Unless someone is a sympathizer of the current Ethiopian regime or a person who has no clue of the politics of this stage, how come we tolerate these styles of white lies and for how long we believe a repeated lies that is made-out in the name of “politics”? I mean, this is very straightforward that they nominated her primarily not because of her career but for the reason that of other critical contributions that she has acquired through her life as same as the other previous nominee’s, Period! It’s a fundamental reason why and how they initially carried out their nomination. However, without doubt it’s clear that they overturned their nomination due to the pressure that comes from Alamudi ESFNA internal thugs that even led them to intimidation and physical attack on pro-Birtukan members, as exclusively covered by the news.
I could continue briefing this presentation of ESFNA lies and cheatings to the public, however it’s irrelevant as compare how much could be done to save ESFNA from being a tool for Alamudi/TPLF. In any case, I wish I had said a lot about your overall immature response to Mr. Epherem that is surrounded by almost no single tangible reasons but just a bunch of rubbish allegations. To be honest, you are embarrassingly failed to address your issues. However, the more conscious and defiant Ethiopian is saying: fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Therefore, Ethiopians won’t give any more chance for mercenaries that are under the skirts of ESFNA to destroy the organization and use for their (TPLF) agenda again. Alhamdulillah, ESFNA internal failure has been massively exposed now and the lack of leadership quality should be fixed at no time soon. Whether you like it or not, ESFNA is a property of Ethiopians in North America that should serve the interests of the people based on its respected rules and policies without the influence of Alamudi and his mafia crew.
