    This is the Dirty work of the Ethiopian government lead by TPLF who else will do such genocide

    • Aman says:

      This is your dirty life with no meaning at all but suffering the way you are while waiting to pass away in vain in abroad.
      Are you a dirty Tigrigna from that tiny Eritrea or a stupid…..? What are you doing on the Ethiopian blog?

      75% of Eritreans are Muslims. Some of them are very nasty including the Rashida, Beja and Tigre. So with no waiting long the worst thing will happen to you all over that tiny Eritrea because of these savages and you will desperately run to Ethiopia to save your sick Tigrigna ass.

        @Aman(TPLF SPY)

    Desperate woyane resorting to its old tricks, explode a bomb and blame its openness and scare the population into submission. Wickleak already exposed your terroristic deeds of similar nature so no one will fall for this latest barbaric act of woyane.

    Aye woyane, you are shitting on your pants when the students in oromia and other regions rise up and challenge you. Your fake 100% election victory couldn’t save you any more?

    All tricks of explosion, half lion birth, and mojo – beki highways, are no use in diverting attention from the Oromo students uprising. What will you bring tomorrow?

    Peace to all but woyanes!

    Grenades are being sold to the public on the black market stolen from the government military warehouses. This attack could very well be the work of those grenade fanatic extremists.

  4. ARBEGNAW says:

    You said A bomb has exploded on Friday, wounding more than a dozen people, caused some panic in the capital Addis Ababa, in other hand Getachew affirmed to Bloomberg that there are no fatalities “so far” in the incident.
    what a fuck you are talking Dawit.

  5. Beza says:

    Merara Gudina and his affiliates should be responsible for this heinous attack. When OLF was doing this kind of things, he will be the first one to claim that the government did this. Last time he was the first one who went to the American Embassy and claim this, now the Ethiopian government action must be expected. Put him in jail

      Please be compassionate to your fellow citizens who are schedding their blood every day.
      Executing and jailing did not help Derg stay in power.
      Please learn from our recent history.
      My appeal is for both paid and unpaid commentators.

      • sema wondem says:

        The time of begging for peace and ask TPLF good well is over. Do You want to observe the situation on this critical time, no way. Look, you better review your stand be with Ethiopia people or with WOYANE. No other choice exist at this time. Stop crying like a baby.

        • Mekdes says:

          Sima wendim We are with EPRDF not with OLF. What u talking? Where are you if you are a man be there.

          • sema wondem says:

            I hope your name is “MEREGEM”, because your name it does not fit with your personality. I know your are TPLF/EPRDF does not represent no one. Say it OLF ,G7, SEMAYAWI or MEDREK etc., They are people voice they represent Ethiopian people. TPLF/EPRDF is a collection of banda who are sucking Ethiopian people blood, it is good to know that you are one of them.

    TPLF is implementing genocide on the OROMO population but its medias are not talking about this issue. we don’t have any issue to talk on now except the uprising of students of oromo.even though you try to divert our attention you will not be successful. Thanks to the social medias ,ESAT and OMN. Dawit , what kind of mind enables you to change your independent journalist position to propaganda machine?

  14. Aman says:

    There is no news here but the house of fire and hell at its best as usual which is savagely and hatefully terrorizing the world in its name.

    Between 70-75% Oromos are Muslims. They are also about 75% of the Ethiopians Muslims divided with different Islamic sects including Shia. However most of them are Sufis as the majority Ethiopian Muslims are.

    The greatest danger and nightmare to any nation is not race, religion or clans differences but the wahhabbi/Sunnis savage Islamic terrorists supported by oil and gas money. This Mosque was built by the Oil and gas money as some other mosques in Ethiopia are for the last 25 years.

    What makes angry and telling to do something about is not the actual incident but the Zionists/Jews and English establishment propaganda shit corporate Medias attitude related to this. They are acting as if they were waiting or working for it and now they are dancing around with celebration moods exacerbated as if it is the worst thing to happen to Ethiopia while the whole world knows what is going on everyday around the world including in USA and UK because of the terrorists they are created, supporting and financing them including in Syria and Libya using them to do the dirty jobs they are having in the world.

    These so called Medias and journalists are in the country doing anything they want always selecting the bad and ugly without challenge coming from particularly concerned citizens acting individually. They are waiting this kind happening or secretly working to happen based on the agendas and plans those sending and financing them are having in our country.

    They are still thinking they are having the homogeny of international Medias and propaganda wars as it was the case in the past. However, they are heading backward and remained behind from the new world mass Medias including RT and many more. The whole world knows how corrupt, liars, propaganda shits, biased, tools to their imperialists’ governments, subjective and un ethics the Zionists/Jews and English establishment retarded criminal school of journalism and Medias are.

    Kenya has been affected badly many times in the past because of the terrorists; targeting big fishes selecting Jews/Zionists and western owned businesses and properties including the Westgate mall which is another Jews owned business/company in Kenya. Ethiopia never spread news about any terrorist attack against Kenya feeling happy about it but hurt while working with Kenya to confront the terrorists.

    Yet, the Zionists/Jews and English establishment so called media representatives in Africa from South Africa and Kenya are treating this minor incident in Ethiopia as if it is the worst thing to happen to the nation. There is a wish if Africa was a Muslim continent in order to eliminate each and every presence and interference the Zionists/Jews and English establishments are having there started since slavery and colonization with great consequences the continent has been through till these days.

    Loot at those in Ethiopia in the name of the Zionists/Jews and English establishment s imperialists medias. They are there for only one thing in mind which is Satanic and evil as they are known with throughout history. Fuck BBC, Reuters/Thompsons Reuters (they are the same), Bloomberg, Mail & Guardian from Kenya- South Africa where its headquarter is in London, Guardian, TFP which is from France but owned and run by them and other Zionists/Jews and English establishment owned and run criminal medias that are in the country by themselves for their own agenda and plan at our cost.

    Saudi regime’s blatant violation of rights of Shi’a Muslims

    The country called Saudi Arabia which has no historical basis, was created by the British colonialists in 1932 in the name of their agent, the tribal leader from Najd Abdul-Aziz ibn Saud, who seized through bloodshed the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the commercial Red Sea port of Jeddah, the northern parts of Yemen, and the eastern oil-rich Shi’a Muslim populated region bordering the Persian Gulf.

    Today it is a US client state that occupies an area of 2 million and 149,000 square kilometers with a population of 27 million, of which 11 million are foreign workers from various countries. Of the 16 million citizens, Shi’a Muslims account for over 26 percent or around five million, and are mostly concentrated in the eastern oil-rich region, and in Medina, as well as in Najran, which was seized by the Saudis from Yemen and whose population is mainly Ismaili Shi’a, followed by Zaydi Shi’a Muslims.

    Unfortunately, the regime is run by the heretical Wahhabi cult, which is a fraction of the minority of the total population, compromising around twelve percent, of which most are political Wahhabis who pretend to follow the faith of the rulers to enjoy privileges, while the majority of the people, especially Shi’a Muslims, are religiously, culturally, politically and economically discriminated against and deprived of even basic birthrights. Stay with us for an interesting feature in this regard.

    All aspects of life in Saudi Arabia are dominated by the deviant Wahabbi cult, which not only suppresses liberties of the Muslims of the land, but spends billions of dollars from the usurped oil wealth of the local Shi’a Muslims to spread its heretical ideas abroad. Through petro-dollars and propaganda it exploits the ignorance of unsuspecting, economically-poor and culturally-backward Muslims of other countries, to make them Salafis, and even terrorists, as is evident by the cannibalistic Takfiris that are destabilizing Syria, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It pretends to be Sunni, but has no connection to the Sunnah or genuine practice and behaviour of the Prophet Islam, as is evident by its deviated policies and desecration of holy sites associated with Prophet Mohammad (SAWA).

    For instance, the Wahhabis have destroyed not only the house where the Prophet was born and where he lived, but also the sacred Cemetery of Jannat al-Baqie in Medina, where four of his 12 Infallible Successors rest in peace, in addition to his aunts, uncle, wives, and companions. In Mecca, the Wahhabis destroyed the Sacred Jannat al-Mo’alla Cemetery which contains the tomb of the First Lady of Islam, the Mother of all True Believers, Hazrat Khadija (peace upon her), as well as the tombs of the Prophet’s monotheist ancestors. It is strange that the Wahhabis accuse Shi’a Muslims of grave worship, when the fact of the matter is that the followers of the Ahl al-Bayt or the blessed household of the Prophet, never indulge in such practices, but pray to God Almighty beside the resting places of those who had dedicated their life to Islam, attained martyrdom, and where the mercy of God is all evident.

    The presence of Shi’a Muslims in Arabia dates back to the time of the Prophet himself, when some of his prominent companions, like Abu Zar, Salman, Meqdad, Ammar, etc, were known as Shi’as or devotees of the Prophet’s cousin, son-in-law, and divinely-designated heir, Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (PuH). In the subsequent eras, despite the usurpation of the right of Imam Ali (PuH) and suppression of his followers, the Shi’as, like Jaber ibn Abdullah al-Ansari, Abdullah ibn Abbas, Owais Qarani, and others, not only made their presence felt in Mecca and Medina, but spread out in the newly conquered lands of Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and Iran.

    The severe persecution unleashed by the Omayyads and subsequently by the Abbasids, although it marginalized Shi’a Muslims, they still flourished in Medina, where the Infallible Imams were based. In the subsequent centuries, the Shi’a Muslims established rule in Yemen, while short-lived Shi’a rule rose and fell in the Hijaz. During the over two-century rule of the Egypt-based Fatemid Ismaili Dynasty over Hijaz, Shi’a Muslims thrived in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the Red Sea port of Jeddah, the summer resort of Ta’ef, and other parts of Arabia. In about 968, a branch of the descendants of the Prophet, established the non-sovereign emirate of the Hijaz, and from 1201 until 1925, ruled in in unbroken succession as Sharifs of Mecca.

    Although this dynasty had adopted Taqiyya or Dissimulation to escape persecution from the Ayyubid, Mamluk and Ottoman Empires, they promoted the culture of the Ahl al-Bayt, until overthrown by the Saudis of Najd. This was the factor for the presence of large number of Shi’a Muslims in Arabia, especially in Medina, where until the usurpation of the Hijaz by the Saudi Wahhabis, as much as half of the population of Medina was Shi’a.
    Meanwhile, Eastern Arabia, which the Saudis call Sharqiya Province today, was historically known as Greater Bahrain for almost a millennium until the 19th century and geographically included what are now Kuwait, Qatar, the Bahrain islands, UAE, al-Hasa, Qatif, and northern Oman. This area was dominated by Shi’a Muslims, who looked towards Iran for support until its occupation by the Ottomans, who continued to appoint the local Bani Khalid emirs as governors to check the raids from Najd in the interior of the Arabian Desert where the Aal-e Saud tribe of brigands had embraced the heretical Wahhabi beliefs.
    There was bitter animosity between the local people and the Aal-e Saud, who with British help encroached on this vast Shi’a majority region and seized it by force of arms, some years after the end of First World War. Years later, the discovery of oil in this occupied Shi’a area made the Saudis to tighten their tentacles on it, and since the late 1930s, the Wahhabi regime in Riyadh has been looting the wealth of this region and spending it to consolidate their power and prestige, as well as to promote their heretical ideas abroad, while depriving the local people of their birthrights.

    Today, the Shi’a Muslims in what is called Saudi Arabia, have become a minority in their ancestral land, the Hijaz, while most of them live in the Eastern Region, especially in the cities of Qatif, Zahran, al-Awamiyah, Ahsa, and other parts, where they form an over-whelming majority, despite the attempts of the regime to change the demography by settling outsiders. Shi’a Muslims also form the majority in Najran in the south which the Saudis had seized from Yemen in 1934, and where the Ismaili Shi’as are the dominant force, followed by Zaydis and Alawis.

    It is gross violation of human rights and injustice by the international community which pampers to the minority Wahhabi regime, despite the fact that the over 25 percent of the country’s population, that is, the Shi’a Muslims, are persecuted and deprived of their rights. The irony is that, the regime in Riyadh not just refuses to grant official recognition to the followers of the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt, but considers them outside the pale of Islam. Some of the Wahhabi mullahs barely hide their animosity towards the Prophet of Islam and his Immaculate Ahl al-Bayt, by publishing seditious statements, such as the one declaring that meat animals slaughtered by Shi’a Muslims as not halal.

    They use the degrading term “Rafizi” for Shi’a Muslims and openly prefer Christians and Jews over the followers of the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt. It is for this reason that some Wahabbis consider the blood and properties of Shi’a Muslims as permissible, despite the fact that Article 18 of the international human rights declaration says every person has the right to enjoy freedom of thought, conscience and religion..

    Today the Shi’a Muslim of Arabia, compared to their brethren in other countries, are the most deprived. They are oppressed and harassed because of obeying the commandments of God and the Prophet to follow the Immaculate Ahl al-Bayt, whom the holy Qur’an hails as the most purified persons. It is not unusual in Saudi Arabia for Shi’a Muslims to be sentenced to death on the slightest of excuses. Those Shi’a Muslims living in holy Mecca are the most oppressed. They have to perform the five-times-a-day ritual prayers at home, away from the prying eyes of the Wahhabis. The ulema are not permitted, even privately, to impart the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt to their followers. The ulema are arrested and persecuted on the slightest pretext, forcing many Shi’a scholars to seek the refuge of the seminaries of Iran and Iraq.

    While there are over 3700 mosques in Saudi Arabia and the Wahhabi regime has so far built over 1600 mosques in various countries of the world, it does not allow the Shi’a Muslims of Arabia to build one single new mosque. It has moreover, destroyed the religious sites of Shi’a Muslims including mosques and hussainiyahs, where the mourning ceremonies for the martyrs of Karbala are held.

    Hojjat-al-Islam Adel Bu Khamseen, one of the outstanding Shi’a ulema of Arabia and head of a number of cultural and educational associations, says religious schools cannot openly function, and are devoid of most modern amenities. There is shortage of books as well, since the regime does not permit the entry of theological and jurisprudential books from Iran, Iraq and Lebanon.

    There is discrimination against Shi’a Muslims at universities as well. They are hardly accepted by the country’s higher educational board. There is discrimination in employment as well, and no Shi’a Muslim is ever given an executive or political post. In postgraduate studies, especially in religious science, universities such as Mohammad bin Saud University or the so-called Islamic University of Medina, students who write dissertations against the Shi’a Creed and members of the household of the Prophet, are handsomely rewarded and provided scholarship and free education. The situation in schools is even worse, and both Shi’a teachers and students are under acute pressure. School students of other sects are asked to term the Shi’a Muslims as Rafizi, while the textbooks published by the government, heap insults against the followers of the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt.

    In terms of economy, although the Shi’a Muslims live in the eastern region with its world’s largest oil reserves, they are one of the most deprived sections of the society. The Shi’a-inhabited areas are considered among one of the poorest regions of Saudi Arabia. The government virtually does not provide any development budget for these regions, such as building of roads, health and education. They are deprived of their own oil wealth.
    Politically, Shi’a Muslims have no place in the administration and government apparatus. The Saudi ruling family has a monopoly over all key jobs. The army doesn’t recruit soldiers from the Shi’a community, and no Shi’a could ever dream to be a pilot, even for passenger planes. This is nothing but violation of human rights and international laws, but neither the UN nor the regimes in the West, which are main beneficiaries of the oil wealth of Eastern

    Arabia, have ever expressed the slightest protest in this regard.
    According to Articles One and 55 of the UN Chatter, all UN member states should respect human rights and provide basic freedoms for all citizens, without any discrimination in terms of race, gender, language or religion. According to Article Two of the International Human Rights Declaration, every person of member states is entitled to all rights, liberties, and freedom, without any distinction on the basis of race, colour, gender, language, religion, political idea, or social status.

    The declaration also requires governments to forbid any type of national, racial or religious hate which increase hate, violence and discrimination. It is thus an undeniable fact that the Shi’a Muslims of what is called Saudi Arabia, despite forming over 26 percent of the country’s population, have no rights whatsoever, in addition to the theft of their oil wealth by the deviant Wahhabi cult.

    If this was happening in USA, China, Russia, Europe or any nation that is strong enough and functioning well with commitments to protect the nation from any minor trouble let alone terrorist and so called rebel attacks, they would hunt down the criminals with no merci at all not only those in the scene causing the unrests and attacks but most importantly those are hiding behind responsible for using the weak, backward, ignorant and children including at schools.

    The Ethiopian government and people must unite and work together in order to hunt down the wild rats that are behind any unrest in the country in the name of anything as we are witnessing currently coming from only one group while Ethiopia is home to more than 80. Those so called politicians in the country are for sure secretly behind and they must be hunted down with no merci at all.

    Ethnic Oromo is the most divided group within among the Ethiopian groups.
    It is divided within in major groups calling themselves as separate Ethnics namely such as
    -Mecha and Tulema
    -Arusi, negele and Jiru
    -Boren…. and so on.

    It is also divided with 29 major clans, hundreds of sub clans and thousands of sub – sub clans.

    It is the most divided group with religion where the vast majorities (about 70%) are Muslims.

    -Syrians that are speaking Arabic and feeling all of them are Arabs are fighting because of religion differences within Islam. It is the same in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan and all conflicts in Islam including Saudi Arabia and other gulf nations.

    So, do the Merira and other wild animal group think about it what is going to happen between the vast majority Muslims and much less number Christians with in oromo when they are spreading their hates and fictional story and committing crimes in the name of Ethnicity?

    They need to wake up, think wisely and understand that they are just one of the 80 Ethiopian Ethnic groups very much divided within which is unlike with others. They will be always treated equally and the same way as everybody else does all over Ethiopia from boarder to boarder. The evil activities and hateful minds they are having in the name of oromia will never materialized the way their dumb brain is wrongly telling them.

    How are they going to deal with the huge differences within Oromo religiously, ethnically, clans and so on even if they get a piece of land they are thinking belongs to them which is against the history how things were before the Gragn war between 1529-1543? Whom was Gragn fighting at that time including what is Harar, Adama and so on today? Do they know about the …. Migration from 1550-1850 took about 300 years deep in to the Ethiopian territories they are talking about as if it belongs to them?

    They must know this is between few criminals in the name of one group VS the rest of Ethiopia that is more than 80 in total. They need to think about it before it is too late thinking they can get anything they want in the common country while we know how the Ethiopian history looked like before 1529 Ottoman/Arabic Islamic Invasion against Christians and what happened after that against the weak government because of migration/invasion from south including in the Historical Sidama, Kembata, keficho and other areas in the south.

    VIDEO, Yemeni Forces kill 80 Saudi Mercenaries Including 42 Blackwater Armed men

    Yemeni forces have managed to kill over 80 Saudi-led Mercenaries, including 42 Blackwater armed men, in a ballistic missile attack in the western Bab-el-Mandeb area

    The Yemeni army, backed by popular committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement forces, targeted a Saudi military headquarters in the Yemen’s southwestern province of Taizz with a Tochka ballistic missile on Sunday night, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah news website reported.

    Twenty-three Saudi, nine Emirati, and seven Moroccan forces, including a number of commanders, were also killed in the attack. Other reports said the attack left nearly 150 casualties among the Saudi-led forces.

    The surface-to-surface missile also destroyed two Patriot missile systems, three Apache helicopters, more than 50 military vehicles, all belonging to the US Blackwater Worldwide security services company. The report added that two Saudi warships were damaged while fleeing the incoming Katyusha rockets that were fired spontaneously due to the missile impact.

    Elsewhere, a Yemeni ballistic missile, named Qaher 1, hit a regional airport in the Saudi region of Jizan. There were no immediate reports of possible casualties and the extent of damage inflicted.

    Meanwhile, a Yemeni army spokesman said the forces killed some 20 Sudanese mercenaries in an attack on Yemen’s southwestern province of Lahij.

    Yemenis carry out these attacks in retaliation for Saudi strikes, launched with the aim of undermining Houthi Ansarullah movement and bringing back to power the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

    The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure.
    On Friday, Amnesty International slammed Saudi Arabia’s deliberate strikes on schools in Yemen as war crimes, calling for the prosecution of those involved in the attacks.
    The International Committee of the Red Cross in Yemen also warned of a humanitarian catastrophe in the country, documenting over 100 airborne attacks on hospitals since March. It warned that that hospitals and healthcare facilities are no longer safe places for people.

      your suggestion would have been superb had there been a government in Ethiopia that is not bbarbaric, not terrorist, and not fifth terrorists all woyane wants to terrorize The population in to submission and Rob the wealth of the country.

      Look how many peaceful opponents who advocated for round table discussion are imprisoned and killed. Woyanes does not have the brain to comprehend what you are saying. All it wants is kill and imprison whoever disagrees with its looting and selling Ethiopian territory to Sudan and shabya.

      Peace to all but woyanes!
