August 8th, 2016 Print Print Email Email

The U.S. Embassy is deeply concerned with the extensive violence that occurred during protests across Ethiopia this weekend in the Oromia and Amhara regions. We have noted reports that protestors and security officials have been injured or killed, although confirmed numbers are not available.

The U.S. Embassy expresses its deep condolences to those who suffered as a result of the violence and regrets the damage to livelihoods, economic development, and the social fabric that such violence brings. We recognize that many of the demonstrations took place without authorization, and urge all parties to support those who are seeking constructive dialog and peaceful solutions. We reaffirm our call to respect the constitutionally enshrined rights of all citizens, including those with opposition views, to gather peacefully, and to express their opinions.

    ኢትዮጵያዊ መልኩን ነብር ዥንጉርጉርነቱን ወያኔ እባብነቱን አይቀይርም

    What a famous American Jew named Harold Rosenthal said about Ethiopians in his most revealing and shocking interview with Walter White is quoted below.
    “It’s stupid—stupid. We are what we are! No matter what we join or adopt it doesn’t change what we ARE. I am a Jew and nothing can change me because I take up another religion. Such stupidity! (This concept is verified in Scripture by the rhetorical question: “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?” And in the parable of the Tares and the Wheat we find that the Tares (the children of the wicked) are utterly destroyed. None are saved from the destroying fire, none are converted into Wheat. God is not going to change the tares into something they never were).”
    Please read this revealing and shocking interview part-1 & part-2 as follows.

    we have seen it before. it is american bullets that the fascist tigre liberation front is showering on our people.
    what does it really matter to simply say ‘we are sorry for the people killed”. it is a joke. america is directly financing and approving this masssacre.

    There is no any kind of diference between the bloody tplf and the USA embassy or its administration. The USA allowed or gave signals to the tplf/woyane to kill as as many as possible. This is not a surprise for many of us. We know the history of the USA and the west.They wanted to get rid of all Ethiopians. They tried during this hundred years. The USA and the EU gave moral support and very strong financial and military aids to the tplf/woyane, this is not secret.

    Therefore the people Ethiopia should be on allert about the conspiracy.
