Ill-will toward Ethiopia
By Engineer Ghirma

Those who wish to do harm to Ethiopia are doomed to certain failure. Ethiopia happens to be the only country in the world which is mentioned in the Holy Bible and Holy Qur’an, in very favorable light: “Ethiopia will soon stretch out her hands unto God (ኢትዮጵያ ታበጽሕ እደዊሃ ሃበ እግዚኣብሄር)” (Psalm 68:31).
Ethiopia has never been assaulted as it has been by Vocal Diaspora CUD/DERG, since the Col. Mengistu Hailemariam era…..never! The record shows that Col. Mengistu attempted to starve segments of the Ethiopian population by withholding food delivery to them in the 1980’s. Of course, Isaias Afwerki also blocked food delivery to the people of Tigrai through Sudan during the same period. Both Col. Mengistu and Isaias Afwerki (who is 100% Ethiopian by birth) will someday stand on “special trial” for their “crimes against humanity”, standing side by side. However, the crime of the Vocal Diaspora against the Ethiopian people is by far the most atrocious of all. We are re-living Mengistu’s notorious battle cry: ኣብዮት ልጆችዋን ትበላለች…! Indeed the Vocal Diaspora is the incarnation of DERG. However, the great Ethiopian people will win hands down this time around. There is no turning back.
What is the driving force that compels these “bad seed” or “እንክርዳዶች” to do what they are doing against their people? Two reasons: Greed; and lust for power. The idea is to usurp power from the hands of the elected government of Ethiopia using, among other tools, the Congress of the United States of America. This of course is asinine idea if there ever was one. The United States is an ally of Ethiopia; and a partner in the fight against “terrorism” to boot. Their lobbyist (in my opinion) Douglas Payne, author of HR 2003, represents the great state of New Jersey in Congress. Trust me; Rep. Douglas Payne can kiss his seat goodbye come next election! He is, in my opinion, a disgrace to the Democratic Party; of which I am a registered member.
Technically, Rep. Douglas Payne has become a lobbyist (in my opinion) for supporters of terrorism. Vocal Diaspora CUD/DERG have openly supported the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC); Al-Ittihad al-Islami (AIAI); Oromo Liberation Front (OLF); Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF); and Isaias Afwerki (PFDJ). Isaias Afwerki has been identified by the United Nations as primary arms supplier to the terrorist organizations that have proven connections to Al Qaeda, which are currently operating in Somalia; Ogaden in Somali State; and Oromia State. What is Rep. Douglas Payne thinking? Enquiring minds want to know!
It is time that the EPRDF, via the Ministry of Information, make full disclosure to the Nations and Nationalities of Ethiopia, the intention of the Vocal Diaspora/DERG to sabotage the Ethiopian economy; and to hurt the hard working people of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian people have a right to be informed of the damage that is being concocted against the Ethiopian people by the joint Vocal Ethiopian and Eritrean Diaspora. The Ethiopian people have the right to know their real enemies, wherever they might live. The Ethiopian people are ready for all eventualities: To protect their land against the Neftegnas (ነፍጠኞች); and preserve the rights of all Nations and Nationalities under the Ethiopian Constitution.
The ill-will (ክፉ ምኞት) towards Ethiopia by her own spoiled brats (ስዶች) shall not pass unanswered. What goes around predictably comes around.
