Dear Ethiopian netters and friends of Ethiopia around the globe.


Dear Ethiopian netters and friends of Ethiopia around the globe.

In this special Holiday Season of 2008 and 2009, may you and your family be blessed in many wonderful ways! May everyone also remember, in their prayers, Judge Birtukan Mideksa (the UDJ party leader), Artist Teddy Afro (the famous young Ethiopian Singer), and all those who languish in the pest and pet infested Woyane prisons. May we also keep our prayers for those who are suffering and being killed in other parts of Ethiopian regions to free themselves from tyrannical rule. May we also have in our prayers all Ethiopian Martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of their people from the inhumane and barbaric acts of Meles Zenawi, Sebhat Nega and the likes of Bereket Simon. May we also pray that the Ethiopian Ministry of Justice, all other Ministries, the government apparatus, the Federal Police and its Commissioner not to become an evil instrument for the continuation of illegal violations of human rights and extrajudicial killings. Let us pray for them to be on the side of the Ethiopian people rather being evil instruments of Melese and his advisors.

Human beings are the most precious creatures and must be safeguarded and protected. Let us learn how democratic nations have laid down the foundations of good governance, rather than learn how to stay in power up until our death coffins by suppressing every dissent, impeding democratic process in the country.

As the year draws to a close or even has closed by the time you read this , we give honour to our Creator and Heavenly Parent through our many faith and traditions of the West and also that of Ethiopia: Christmas (Gena), Muslim Ashura (7 January), and the festival of all other beliefs. Lets us celebrate, together in our families, wherever we are in a spirit of love for each other, for our country and for the world as peace-loving creatures. The common thread throughout these holidays is the love of God, not hatred, the yearning for Peace not for war, and the importance of family, country and the planet earth.

While for everyone, the holiday season is a time for family gatherings and joy-able occasion, sadly it is the starting and continuation of sufferings for other Heroes and Heroines because they stand for what they believe in. Truly, these courageous Ethiopians like Judge Birtukan and Teddy Afro are a different kind of generation who have no parallel in telling the truth and standing by it. It appears that Zeanawi’s crew members all along don’t like truth and rather hate it to the extreme. May we pray for those in power for God to help them love truth rather than deceptions, imprisonment and Killings!

May we pray to God, for the evil sprit to leave the minds of Meles and his cronies and peace be onto their minds. May we also pray for all the children of Meles and his officials, their wives and relatives to live in a suspicion-free, peaceful, liberated life as any other human being rather than been seen as enemies of the nation, shielded in fenced-villas and alienated from the rest of us Ethiopians fearfully just because they are born to these officials and that they are family members.

Let us keep Judge Birtukan and Teddy Afro in our prayers when we join together with loved ones to strengthen and renew the bonds of love that are most precious to us. May we also reach out to support the families of Birtukan (her daughter) and other exemplary Ethiopian thrown into Atrocious Woyane prisons called Maramia Bet, which I call “Mekramia Bet” and “Mamocha Bet”

We look forward to continuing our struggle with evil-spirited minds throughout the new year of 2009, until the people are free! Please let us keep these sons and daughters of the nation in our prayers at Churches too!

In January 29, 2006 in Boston, USA; Ethiopians there commemorated Birtukan Mideksa Day, honouring the sacrifice she has been paying in Woyane prison since her first imprisonment. If Birtukan, Teddy and other innocent prisoners are not going to be released from prison by Melese in this second round of their imprisonment, we need to stage a peaceful protest demonstration in this same day world wide, spicing it up with our prayers.

Let our love for each other be flavoured Birtukan (orange in English), but not with hatred flavoured with Meles’ aloes. The very love that Teddy has sang for our souls!

May God Save US from “Divide and Conquer” Politics!!

    Let it be clear to the people of Ethiopia and their donors as to what the mission and the hoopla “development, democracy, constitution, nation-nationalities” of Legesse Z, weyane gang-ho, and their masters/advisors Eritrean traitors; 1- for the people of Amhara- they have senteced them to slow death by inprisonment and humilation, 2- to the people of Oromia- they have sentensed them to death while they preach development to the ones that don’t know them yet, 3- to the people of Somalia- they have sentesed them to death with the help of their other masters- the west! and 4- to the people of Tigry- LET THE TIGRYANS SPEAK THEMSELVES BUT FROM A DISTANCE THEY ARE ALL BENEFACTORS OF WEYANES LOOTING, SLAUGHTERING, AND DESTRUCTION OF ETHIOPIA!

    Dear መርከብ :
    I wish you Happy New Year, hoping that on your planet too you celebrate…
    The Melesas soon would be brought to justice.You may not be available to face same…since you live on another planet.But be ready to enjoy it!
    The arrest of Birtukan would nail the cofin of these barbarians….

    Dr Joseph’s piece is very interesting and awakening. If Dr Joseph is an Ethiopian, I wouldn’t be surprised. The Dr says that let us not be reserved to fight the enemy because of our religion but fasten our belts to continue the struggle even using religious means and even holidays, churches and religious celeberations.

    The piece delivers the message to the point clearly. Ethiopians from all walks of life, using at least their prayers, should galvanize their energy and resources to fight the common enemy of the majortiy of Ethiopias- the Woyane, its cronies, its state appartus and machinery. The writer says Christians (whether evangelical or orthodox or Catholic and Muslims) must wake up and at least keep these courageous Ethiopians like W/t Bitukan and Teddy in our prayers.

    The writer also shows how evil spirited these current Ethiopian rulers are and the miserable life their children and families live. Though they have abundant wealth that they have snatched from the majority of Ethiopians, the rutheless rulers families life is a night mare.

    Finally, the author also suggests that we have to wake up and organize day of commomoration for Judge Birtukan Mideksa and Artist Teddy Afro.

    I also would like to add to what has been said that without listening to the Woyane agents here and there on the web, we have got to play our part, like dissiminating this information to our friends. congress members, US Senators, Governors and their staff and exposing the barbaric act of Woyane! The spirit of HR 2003 should continue. The young generation should understand this historical blunder of the Meles regime.

    Gobez, let us wage the struggle against the enemy using all means!!

    Yes and indeed;Ethiopians must remove the enemy from the surface of Ethiopia. We shall pray for all those Ethiopians who fall victim to the evils of the invading tplfwoyane looters and murderers.

    Ms. Bitukan Medeksa and other Ethiopians shall be free from the daunting and agly imprisonment imposed upon them by the boss of the crimefamily,the evil Meles Naziawi.

    The barbarians,those members of the crimefamily had one reason when they came into Ethiopia via invasion;namily,to loot and murderer Ethiopians. Not only the invaders bear full responsibility for the varieties of crime that they committed against all Ethiopians, they shall be forced to bow and kneel down below their dirty barefoot and crawl on that land they walked on with a lot of guns and bullets and shall be plunged a miles deep into their fate.

    Both woyane and Mrs Mideksa are playing childish. she first released out of kaliti prison under the law of forginviness. After that she denied as she was asked for pardon then the woyanes jailed her.

    This is what we used to play in elementary school friends. After we gave some pencil to our friend and if he acts like we never gave him a pencil, we imidiately will ask our pencil to get back. This is what legese and birtukan are playing on the heart of ethiopia.

    Regarding Tedicho, nobody is sure as he hit the boy or not. But here the fact is, if he is one of the supporter of the woyanes nobody would care even if he kills hundreds of ethiopians. If we see this issue from its differnet angle, Teddy will make another strong music better than JAH after he finished his probation.

    Jah bless ya every body.
