    Time to act! The Ethiopian government should summon the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia in Addis and chuck him out if necessary. Also send high level delegates to Riyad in order to show concerns in the Ethiopian side. We need to remind the Saudis that humanity comes first and everyone, regardless of the immigration status, should be treated humanly.

    Ironically back in his days, Islam’s prophet Mohammed said to his followers to go and seek refuge in the “land of righteous people”. Ethiopia welcomed his followers and repelled their enemies. Now Mohammed’s followers are persecuting the very people whose forefathers helped their prophet. What would the Saudis do when history repeats itself and the time comes for them to seek sanctuary in Ethiopia? Their oil will drain out, Iran is gonna deal with them in the near future. Their Western “allies” will betray them. Saudis are the worst part of the human race and their time is fast approaching.

    Where are the human right? Where is amnesty international? where all the western journalists? what happened? you see, they are after human being; they have an agenda, and their agenda is called Money or business, not human. I do not wana hear anything about human right after now. Thieves in sheeps clothe, if this was in Ethiopia? oh my God, the Ethiopian government would have been invaded by human rights , USA, UK,UN, … all of them. You see they are silent? why? It is called oil or dollar. This is evil world with evil human race. Where the devilish human right?

      It is shamful from the part of Saudi government and a barbaric act of the saudi police. Are they living in 21 century or in the era of slavery? This a break of international law of humanity. really I do not have the words to express my sorrow, anger, and disappointment towards of this cruelity against my feloow citizens of ehtiopia. It is by any measure not acceptable. We have our beautiful land and rich in resources, but unlucky of wise governance. Time will pass and we will prvail. Let the international community see how the bad situation of ethiopians. The dam will be done now or then. Keep in mind development with out garanting the freedom of citizins and stability of the country is not the right choice of any democratic government. Abbay is ours. No quetion of it. But let us be free and have a harmonious life. Let us have garanty and security in our country.Let us be equal citizins.

    First of all we have to be very careful from holding the current regime wholly responsible for the movement of its citizens out of the country by all means of exit. The genie was out of the bottle during the days of Mengistu and it will not slow down even if there is a democratic regime running the country tomorrow. Illegal migration is a global phenomenon as it has never been seen before in the history of modern world. As long as there are societies that remain underdeveloped industrially and their income remains at the level of bare subsistence, migration will continue. Those of you who were here in the Good Ole USA since the early 1970’s you will remember when tens of thousands of South Koreans were coming here by any means they could to escape not solely dictatorship but above all abject poverty. But there number started slowing down dramatically after the mid 1980’s because their country started finding success in transforming itself as an industrialized nation. That transformation in itself brought about the death of a dictatorship and that sniffed out the desire of migrating out of its literate citizens. The same can be said of Taiwan, Singapore, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil and to some extent now to The Philippines. Sooner or later we will say the same about the Chinese. The main reason for the Taiwanese, Brazilians, Argentines, South Koreans and Singaporeans to come here nowadays is to shop for big houses, high rise condominiums and struggling factories, which is not a bad thing. So, the exodus will continue until that region is turned upside down and transformed into a mainly industrial society.

    In the meantime, we should ask the question why the Saudis and their other Emirate kin and kits are all of a sudden persecuting hard working foreigners like our countrymen. These foreign workers are crime-free group of people who do all of the menial work for the lowest wage possible. Such barbaric treatment of Africans by the Arabs is not new. They have been doing this for centuries. They were the first ones since the Middle Age to commence the slave trades. Their trade is well documented but there is very little known except what is left in the annals of their own folklore about what they did with the slaves they snatched from Africa numbering in millions. Where are the descendants those slaves who were taken to the Arabian Peninsula? What did they do with them once they were tired of seeing them in their surroundings? Compare that to the Americas where millions were bought as slaves. What do witness now? Jamaica, Haiti, Mississippi, New Orleans, many Caribbean Islands, Central and South American cities have majority black population. What did the Arabs do with my Oromo people and other brotherly Ethiopian countrymen who they snatched are slaves since the 3rd century? We know very well what they have done with the teenagers and adult males. Castration and banishment was a common practice. Family and clan verdicts were the venues to hand out such steps. If you hear a story these days where a Saudi, Kuwaiti or an Abu Dhabi housewife killed an Ethiopian maid on a whim, don’t be puzzled by it. It is right there in their folklore. To them servants are always servants – sub-humans who can be disposed of on whim. There is a lot to be investigated about the slave trade to the Arabian Peninsula and the fate of the slave taken there. There is lot of investigative done to the slave trade to the Americas but there is not much research done to the slave trade which had been going on in full swing for more than a thousand years on the other side of the African continent. I call upon all capable experts of the East African origin to start conducting extensive research about the fate of Africans who were forcibly taken to the Arabian Peninsula as slaves for more than a millennium. That includes the methods of punishment used on the slaves for the slightest ‘crime’. What had they done with those slaves? Where are the descendants of those millions of slaves in the modern day Arabian Peninsula? I want some one to show me a locality where there is a majority of such African descendants with more than a third generation. I sense a crime against on humanity of historical proportion that may put Stalin, Mao, Mussolini and Hitler to shame.
