The Ethiopian Review editor seems like he is about to awfully collapse. Once again he rubbed his leg against the well known poison ivy that has been sickening the entire horn of Africa. The editor had chosen the dictator of dictators, the most brutal, and well-known Ethiopian enemy Essayas Afeworki as his person of the year.

How is it possible for a dear to protect itself from wolves by becoming friend with hyenas? How in the world one proves itself as true Ethiopian by associating itself with Ethiopian Enemies?

There is no question that Ethiopians are suffering under the dictatorship of EPRDF. However, it is unambiguous that no matter how much they are oppressed, Ethiopians will never standby the dim-witted Eritrean leaders against their own country. Not in a million years. Evidently, the Eritrean leaders are vicariously liable for all the problems Ethiopia is facing. How quickly the ER editor forgot that many innocent Ethiopians were killed by the Eritrean government?

It is disgusting for the ER editor to even think about making Essayas his person of the year. In addition to masterminding the current political madness in Ethiopia, the Eritrean government is also responsible for uncountable crimes it committed against Ethiopia and Ethiopians. Eritrea turns every stone it could to make sure Ethiopia remains divided and failed. We all know that Eritrea will never solve Ethiopian problems. In fact they always wish to see Ethiopia collapsed. It is simply imprudent to show appreciation for their wrongdoing.

The ER might think that it is contributing to the struggle for freedom, democracy, and justice by associating itself with Ethiopian enemies. However, it is wide of the mark, and extremely baloney. Not only we say that the cheese has melted, it is in fact slid out of the cracker.

While we reject the act, yet again we call on the ER to distance itself from the hyenas if it wants to survive. Ethiopians will never run to criminals cages to save themselves. No misery, however dreadful, can force Ethiopians to fall onto the hands of enemies who always want to see them suffering.
