Ethiopia-Eritrea border demarcation deadline passing
The deadline to set a boundary between Ethiopia and Eritrea will pass on Friday with the disputed frontier likely to be left as demarcated on their maps, and Ethiopia dismissing fears of a re-eruption of a border war. "We will never, ever go to war with Eritrea , unless there is full scale invasion," Meles said on Thursday. "I do not think that the Eritrean government would launch a full scale invasion, because it would be suicidal for them."

Meles Predicts Ethiopia-Eritrea Boundary Deadline to Pass Without Incident
"We will never, ever go to war with Eritrea unless there is a full-scale invasion," he said. "Not any old provocation. Full-scale invasion. That is the only condition that would force us to fight Eritrea. I don't expect the Eritrean side to carry out full-scale invasion because I think they know it is going to be suicide. So I'm very confident the deadline the boundary commission has set for itself is going to pass like any of those days that have passed since the beginning of the millennium." "As far as the virtual demarcation of the boundary is concerned, I have heard well-respected diplomats and lawyers describe it as 'legal nonsense'," he said. "Our lawyers agree with such characterization..."

Kenya arrests 12 suspected Ethiopian rebels

Eritrea-Ethiopia border deadline looms amid war fears
Analysts say it is unlikely much will change on the border even if the commission closes as expected on Friday -- except psychologically. The tensions of the past five years are unlikely to diminish. "It's highly possible that the end of the (commission) will be a non-event and will leave the situation in a vacuum," said Francois Grignon, Africa Programme director for the International Crisis Group.

Ethiopia plays down war talk ahead of border deadline
Three days before a deadline for demarcating their disputed border, Ethiopia said on Tuesday it had no plans for another bout of fighting with arch-foe Eritrea but would crush any attempt by Asmara to invade. "Ethiopia has no reason to launch another war against Eritrea. Our intention has always been to resolve all outstanding border problems with Eritrea through peaceful means," Prime Minister Meles Zenawi told parliament.

"Should Eritrea launch another war, we will make certain that Asmara would never, ever dream of even entertaining or thinking about war again." he said.

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.

This book argues that the Old Testament is a true story but its events up until 586 B.C.E. (the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem) occurred in western Arabia and to a lesser extent in Tigrai. The book uses evidence from the life of the Queen of Sheba that includes inscriptions near Mekele, the structure and vocabulary of the Ancient West Arabian language, place names in Asir and Jizan, an analysis of the Sheba-Menelik Cycle within the Kebra Nagast, and data from remnant groups such as the Latos of Hamasien, the Ibro/Yibir of Somalia, the Beta Israel, the Qemant and the Lemba.

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.
(Tigrai Online comment)

Call to promote free press and media development in Ethiopia
This millennium petition is inspired by the unity of Ethiopians following the massacre of 65 Ethiopians by the ONLF rebels and by our courage to face numerous other rebels who are ready to massacre Ethiopians instead of joining the peaceful opposition parties inside the current Ethiopian parliament.

Sample letters to be sent to the three important personalities to oppose the bill HR 2003.

Now that we are here in the year 2000, what should we do in the next 1000 years? We should use the Millennium to rid of our social problems, like hunger, diseases, illiteracy, and backwardness. We should use the new Millennium as a spring board to propel us towards the new era of prosperity, peace, and unity of our people, strength, technology, and the information highway.
