Secretary Condoleezza Rice Interview on Ethiopian TV
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
QUESTION: Interesting. Where do you stand on the issue of Eritrea? Secretary Frazer several months ago said that you are planning -- that the U.S. Government is planning to put Eritrea on the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. What are you --
SECRETARY RICE: Well, we are looking at exactly that because we are very concerned about the efforts of Eritrea and what it is doing. And in fact, we have taken some steps because the support for irregular forces, for terrorist forces is simply unacceptable. We hope, at the same time, that there can be efforts for Eritrea and Ethiopia to keep open dialogue or, I should say, to open dialogue about their problems. But the support of Eritrea for forces that are destabilizing is problematic and we've made that very clear.

Will Eritrea’s Rogue Regime go to War with Ethiopia? Part II
I understand every Eritreans’ feeling for their mother land and certainly they should respond that way when they feel the mother land is facing dangers from outside. No doubt I, like most people of every country, would have reacted that way too. What makes Eritreans’ case different is they are helping Shaebiya, a regime the world clearly knows as despotic, with worst records in press and religious freedom as well as human rights among list of atrocities it commits against its own citizens, stay longer in power.

Ethiopia to Open First Silk Firm in Africa

Will Eritrea Regime go to war with Ethiopia?
Militarily it was never a match to the Italians. But the then ruler of Ethiopia, Emperor Menelik II, called on all Ethiopians (who are very humble but naturally patriotic and warrior when provoked) to join the mission to send the Italians back home. On March 1 and 2, 1896 the gallant Ethiopians chased the Italians across the hills, valleys and gorges of Adwa at the infamous Battle of Adwa. In a matter of two days the modern and well equipped Italian army was crushed by the arrows and swords of ordinary Ethiopians. Italy caused -beyond itself- the whole of Europe and the entire white community an unprecedented shock with glorious black victory- the first recorded black victory over white colonizers. Italy was bound to give up and live with the shameful scar of Adwa.

Eritrea Accuses Ethiopia of Border Attacks
Eritrea has accused Ethiopia of attacking its security forces along the two countries' disputed border. In a statement posted on its Web site late Wednesday, the Asmara government said Ethiopian troops made a failed, small-scale attack late Tuesday on Eritrean forces in the South Tsorona area.

Exchangeof gunfire on Eritrea-Ethiopia border: UN
The United Nations said Thursday that Eritrean and Ethiopian soldiers facing off along their disputed border exchanged gunshots a day earlier.

Will Eritrea’s Rogue Regime go to war with Ethiopia? Part I
Shaebiya’s boss Isias Afewerki and his clique, the gangs in Asmara, seem determined to avoid being another example of that kind, at least twice. Isaias dreads picking the name Mussolini II for a second time. Thus, the gangs are hell bent to destabilize Ethiopia, of course indirectly, through some disgruntled, ill-advised and misinformed individuals and anti-peace elements some of whom are supposedly Ethiopians but have somehow lost their Ethiopian psychological makeup and identity, and through other international terrorists who spring up from Asmara, the African terrorist hub, and hide in Somalia to operate throughout the Horn of Africa under various names.

Eritrean Regime Abducts Thousands Of Eritreans From Sudan
The Eritrean regime’s abduction of Eritreans in Sudan is of significantly bigger scale than originally reported. Almost four thousand Eritreans, mostly those who escaped from the mandatory draft, have been picked up from Sudan, loaded in Bettahs (trailers) and hauled back to Eritrea. This may account for the recent increase of Eritrean migration to Ethiopia, where there is little risk of being snatched back.

Ethiopia Marks Yearlong Occupation in Somalia
“I think a lot of people are surprised that the Ethiopians are still there and still trying to figure out how to get out of Somalia. I’m convinced they’d very much like to leave but feel they’re sort of stuck. And I’m almost certain they’re surprised at the situation that they are in. And I think a lot of other people are too, although frankly it should have been fairly predictable that this was not going to go very smoothly,” he says.

'After Years of Struggle, Eritreans Have Gained Nothing' [interview with Dr. Fisseha-Tsion Menghistu,]
What do you think is the interest and intention of Isayas for being such a destabilizing factor in the region? Isayas has been trying to be a regional power in the Horn of Africa. He has done everything in his power to destabilize the Ethiopian government. There is no stone that has not been turned to create instability and to destabilize the Ethiopian government. He has been supporting not only Islamic groups in Somalia but also many other Ethiopian robel groups like the OLF, ONLF, AFD and many others. He has been a destabilizing factor ever since. He never wants to see a strong, united and prosperous Ethiopia. In a way, he was waging a proxy war for foreign powers in the past and he is also fermenting war both to be a regional power in the Horn of Africa, as well as to promote the interest of other countries.

The New York Times reporter, Jeffrey Gettleman, had another piece on Ethiopia on December 14, 2007 under the Caption "In Rebel Region, Ethiopia Turns to Civilian Patrols".

The various strands of the narrative that the article conveys share one quality ---, they are all based on fictitious stories.

Military Buildup Heightens Ethiopia-Eritrea Border Tensions in 2007
Shinn says international condemnation might not be as effective against Eritrea, which has regularly ignored world opinion. But he says Eritrea's leaders are well aware of Ethiopia's military superiority. "The fact is they have a very strong and a very powerful and so far disciplined national army that made pretty short work of the Eritreans in 2000 and the Eritreans have not forgotten that," he said.

Medhane Tadesse’s analysis of the situation between Ethiopia and Eritrea is some what skewed. It is a fact that the Ethiopian army is fighting in Somalia and Ogaden now and that might take away some of the army’s capabilities but the rest of the army is powerful enough to carry out any military campaign to destroy shabiya’s rag tag so called Sawa army. Shabiya’s weakness is based on its own sadistic inferior nature. It has nothing to do with Ethiopia. The question is what are the causes of Ethiopian weaknesses these days? The answer is simple; the primary cause of Ethiopian weakness is Shabiya’s support to terrorist groups inside and outside of Ethiopia. If Ethiopia deals with Shabiya once and for all its weaknesses will be reduced significantly. ‘Building constituency for peace among intellectuals and influential elements within the Eritrean and Ethiopian diaspora? That is old and the conflict is light years beyond that. (Tigrai Online comment)

Ethiopia to export power to neighbours
Ethiopia will begin exporting electricity to neighbouring Sudan and Djibouti by 2010, after its series of hydroelectric power projects underway get accomplished.

Life, and Death, Goes On
Ethiopia cannot afford to pull out its troops until the Islamic Courts are destroyed. That's because the Islamic Courts have pledged to take part of Ethiopia (the southern Ogaden province). The Islamic Courts also want to crush Ethiopia because it is a Christian nation about half the population have been Christian for nearly 2,000 years. The Ethiopians just want the Somalis to leave them alone, as does Kenya, which has suffered raids by Somalis for centuries.

Executives of Inter Global and senior officials of MME have been negotiating on the planned exploration project for the past several months.

Hailu Shawel, chairman of the former Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD), this Tuesday wrote a letter to the party's Supreme Council in which he suspended five leadership members.

Well what do you expect from politicians whom, their sole purpose was to spread hate? As a result of their policy of hate towards the people of Tigrai, they are crumbling down shamelessly.

Stolen Ethiopian design
Matthew Williamson in Ethiopian controversy
Matthew Williamson this week has been targeted by the Ethiopian government for using a pattern similar to its national dress. Two outfits shown at his much-hyped 10th anniversary SS08 show in September during London Fashion Week are thought to be directly copied from traditional Ethiopian dress.

Matthew Williamson is trying to make a quick buck by stealing designs from the Ethiopian traditional national dresses, what a shame. Those designs are unmistakably Ethiopian creation, no one would dispute that. This is not the first time some one from the west tried to steal from the thousands years old rich Ethiopian culture. You remember some company in Holland tried to patent Taff/Teff and another in Brazil some so called scientist’s attempt to patent the decaffeinated coffee which is only found in Ethiopia? Williamson’s decision to show Ethiopian traditional national dresses as his own fashion designs shows not only is he morally corrupted but he is also creatively bankrupt. What we need to do as a people is to keep our eyes open and tell those westerners to keep their hands off from our treasure jars.(Tigrai Online comment)

Free Book on Ancient History of Tigrai Queen of Sheba of Axum Tigrai
"Queen of Sheba and Biblical Scholarship." (3rd edition 2007)

250 pages and appendices with maps and original documents in Ge'ez with transliteration and English translations.

The book argues that the ancient history of Tigrai is the key to resolving the present crisis in Biblical archaeology which is divided into two camps: (i) One that argues (Finkelstein, Silberman, Thompson, Hertzog) that since excavations began in the Holy land in 1920 no evidence has been forthcoming to support the belief that Moses, Joshua, David, Solomon ever existed and therefore the Old Testament is a fantasy or highly exaggerated; (ii) the other maintains that archaeological evidence will eventually be discovered.

It should be crystal clear to every one by now; the sociopathic dictator of Eritrea is behind ONLF, CUD, OLF, SNLF, GLF, EPPF and many other terrorist groups in Ethiopia. No matter what Ethiopia does to resolve the conflict peacefully, Eritrea is as much determined to do every thing to destabilize and destroy our country. Should we sit down and wait until our total destruction? The resounding answer by any red blooded Ethiopian should be NO! Believe me I know what the ugly consequence of war is, but Ethiopia and its people are slowly bleeding to death by the Eritreans. There is no other option but one, and that option is we should hit back and hit back really hard with out mercy. There is no development with out peace and security and there is no peace and security while Shabiya is in power.

Call to promote free press and media development in Ethiopia
