Tragedy in our Midst By Teodros kiros

April 27th, 2015 Print Print Email Email

For the past twenty years I have shed tears of unbearable pain for the Ethiopian and African victims of poverty, of relentless sorrow of the poors of the continent.

I am shedding those tears again.

At what one point I was so desperate that I designated famine as the language of African tragedy.

Tragedy has now targeted Ethiopia in the face of terrorism, as if poverty and famine are not enough, and I have to cry with my people again. I have to appeal to the Transcendent to let my people go, to protect my people from the hands of Barbarism.

Dear God: Please speak; please calm the devastated mothers and the traumatized Ethiopian children who have seen savagery on Television. Please God command our people not to hate any body but to pray to you to control their anger, and in unison say, “ Enough is enough. Feed, clothe and shelter our people to stay home and die at home in dignity and the compony of their families and participate in constructing a prosperous, safe Ethiopia which could feed, shelter and cloth themselves, so that they do not have to die in search of a better life.

Please God protect the existential rights of Ethiopians to be born, grow and die in historic Ethiopia.

    Mr. Tedros is back after a long hiatus. Welcome back sir. It’s always a pleasure to read your articles. I hope you will not take a long leave of absence again like you have done so.

    The slaying of innocent Ehiopian christians in Libya shows the bestial nature of the perpetrators. Killings because of religious beliefs of ethnic backgrounds constitute crimes against humanity. The TPLF directly or inirectly had committed simialr atrocities in Ethiopia. The main targets of the TPLF led and incited killings and displacements in Ethiopia are the Amharas,Somalis,Anguaks and follwers of the Orthodox church. So when we condemn crimes against humanity, we should also condemn all the groups inciting and committing these atrocities. The TPLF is committing these crimes including ethnic cleansing in Ethiopia and should be equally condemned. The double standard should be avoided for the sake of humanity.

    We have once again realized that the TPLF is devoid of any compassion for our brothers brutally slain by the extremists in Libya. The TPLF has even gone to the extent of forbidding any mourning and beating the peaceful mourners in Addis Ababa. The TPLF is behaving and acting in inhuman ways in the face of this tragedy. The fascism and racism that have gripped the rank and file of the TPLF are revealing their ugly faces. The TPLF members and hodams are devoid of any humanity and would justify or defend the fascism and racism of the liberation front.

    Isn’t that the same Teodros who was praising Meles for his, so called, “development” and “brilliance”. Let me refresh your memory, if I may sir.
    I’ve reached the conclusion that Tedros is bipolar, albeit the root cause is still unknown. Nonetheless, your vacillating tendency doesn’t help anyone, brother. Please make up your mind. Are you a woyane apologist or a true Ethiopian?

    Orlando Pace,
    Great job! Keep on exposing the fake sympathizers. How could anybody admire a heartless tyrant that locked up countless number of innocent Ethiopians, slaughtered unknown number of law abiding citizens, gunned down 500 Gambelans, the same dictator that left the country landlocked, robbed the country, gave the land of Ethiopia to Sudan, sold the most fertile vergin land to Soudi Billioners, Chinese, Indians and so on. MELES=TPLF=ISIS.

    TPLF is also responsible for what is happening in Israel against Ethiopians. If TPLF has administered Ethiopia well, they would have returned to their home country.

    Thank you very much to let us know the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
    He who had been supporting Meles has no moral grounds to talk about Ethiopiawinet as ,we ,the mainstream perceives it.
    In Meles view ,Ethiopian is an mechanical aggregate of entities not intrinsically related to each other ,with practically no bondage between them be it blood ,history and so forth .For them , Ethiopia is like a basket containing apples ,oranges ,onions,pulses …that is it.
