    Ahmed is an amateur propagandist. His understanding of the current unrest in Ethiopia is disturbing. He wrote “The [Ethio-Somali] cabinet has strongly condemned the intimidation, subjugation and killing of … Tigrai people.” I read a few articles that he wrote before, so I know he has had an inclination to pass his opinions as facts. I just assumed he is a new political convert, and he tried his best to prove his worth to his bosses. I noticed in his every article he took it to be his obligation to say something nice about the president of the Somali land. But this time he went to far. He just summed up the current unrest in Ethiopia in his own way: the killing of Tigrians. He is not alone in characterizing the unrest in the bizarre way. The Ethio-Somali cabinet feels the same way. In fact, he quoted them. Such characterization might be excused if the demonstrators who were accused of killing Tigrians were a few dozens, and even a few hundreds. But to characterize the demonstrations thousands have participated, with no evidence to show Tigrians were targeted for the killing, to be one ethnic against another is a disservice to those who wanted to be heard. No Ethiopian from whatever ethnicity one is from should not be a facilitator of ethnic infightings, especially the one that did not happen. Ahmed is very immature, so does the Ethio- Somali cabinet. I think too much … kissing of the Federal government is going on in the Somali region, I do not like it.

  4. Ermi says:

    Did I miss his donation to the displaced Amharas from Guraferda few years ago? Or this is just a fake donation to fill the coffers of the fleeing woyane criminals, Aboy Sibhat and the likes. Oh, i know they are his boss.

    Peace to all but woyanes!

    Ermi

    • Beza says:

      You didn’t miss.it. you know that the Amaras in Gurafarda were not displaced in this magnitude. Shabiya.

      • Ermi says:

        @Beza, at least you admitted the Amharas were displaced. That is a good start, because next you will say I am not your cousin “shabia”. Trust me, your getting better. Reality is sinking for you. You never thought the people would join hands and topple woyane. Now you see woyanes fleeing in numbers . By the way, are you Helen Berhe? I just thought you sound like her.

        Peace to all but woyanes!

        the Amhara and the Tigray case totally different

        any Ethiopian have the right to live any part of the country this doesnt mean the govt. will settled u in mass no govt help should be given \\

        in USA the govt of one state can not export their people to other state by pay them for resettlement…

        if u want to go to NY today no govt will pay for ur bus fare u cover ur cost in Ethiopia case the Amhrar resettled in mass during mangistu haile mariam during king menelik AND king HAILE time those Amhara were colonizer they took the land by force … that is totally diffrent then a poor tigrian immigrated to Amhara and work his way up

        • Beza says:

          Ethio ash I didn’t see it that way. I thought they came after eprdf took power. I know it is gonna be worst for Amara. I don’t need that to happen in the country. I remember the people of Gurafarda didn’t kill people and burn their properties. But this is different killing people is crime. That is the difference, ERMI SHABIYA, I AM NOT HELEN BERHE, I know people, I ow to make them angry like u. Most of you on ethiopian forum are Shabiyan like you. I don’t dis respect ethiopian nations nationalities bbut the Shabiya, like you. Get lost from here.

  5. Robblay says:

    Woriyahe, wah mai?
    This issue ,clearly ,is to do with amara and tigre and I doubt the somali people you represent approve of such intervention.the other thing is the somali region used to have more oromo and amara communities than tigrians,so where does this sudden brotherhood turn up without the somali region community knowledge?
    Are you trying to prove that somalis are the guardians of TPLF? please ,do not make a fool of the somalis and yourself by venturing in affairs you have no understanding.every ethiopian has the right to live in peace in their own ethnic zones.from our understanding ,the the amaras do not want the Tigres in their land.so why don’t the Tigres live in their own zone? what is this nonsense about displacement of people as if it never happened in somail,oromo,and southern Ethiopia?
    I prefer somali region not interfere in this mess and leave it to the EPDRF .the oromos are not siding with tigrians,why are the somalis allowed to stick their noses in amara vs tigrian affairs??

    • Tesfa Tesfa says:

      Robblay, one point I don’t agree with you is, your comment that say – to live in own ethnic zone thing. All Ethiopian has the right to live anywhere in Ethiopia.
      But, I agree with your comment that what the Somali administration did was to make TPLF – the Boss- happy. Not good. TPLF is a merchant of divide-and-conquer, that is what it is trying to do here. When there is any issue between two regions , the two regions and the federal government (through the parliament and the federation council) deal with it. it is NOT GOOD, when a third region jumps to side with another region. But, we know how TPLF think and act, it is a shame that TPLF is throwing its own constitution out of panic – shame on TPLF for dragging the Somali region into this

    Dear Ahmed Deeq Hussein,

    Perviously, I followed all your articles you wrote for various topics and I am so proud of you for your contribution of the democratization of our country Ethiopia.

    Her is what I wrote when I heard about the donation by the Somali President and his cabinet for the displacement of innocent Tigreans:
    I have been saying to my friends that the Somali President is a real Ethiopian individual he deserves one day to get the premiership position to lead the nation. He is a real servant and visionary leader. The somali region and Ethiopia at large is very lucky to have a selfless servant in the governmental system. To handle this type of business requires a capable leadership. Mr. president, you proved your capability and solidarity to the people of Ethiopia in general and to the Tigrean people in particular. I haven’t forgotten to express my deep and humble gratitude to the whole Ethiopian citizens in our Somali region for their brotherly and sisterly solidarity with the people of Tigray.

    Peace be with you,

    • Sol says:

      Thanks, Somali State and it’s Government has showed what a nation and nationalities are all about , our deversitiy is our strength there is no nation with out respecting one another, the one nation under one language is buried 25 years ago, respect us we will respect you, if you don’t we will not, it is not the donation you have to look, it is the justification as Ethiopian, long live our brothers and sisters in Somali state, we love you all, united we stand!!

  8. Alemeshet says:

    Good to know and see that the brotherly /sisterly regional state of Ethiopian Somali people, are demonstrating their compassion to the displacement of civil society people of Tigrai origin, from other regions of their country Ethiopia. I am also happy to know that this brotherly/sisterly people and regional state felt strongly to defend the peace, equality and integrity of our nation.
    Thank you, and may god bless all our people and the nation of Ethiopia!!!

    A Hmed Diqqa is a lost soul WOY-ANE foot soldier he only utters what they tell him and now he is asked to bring the money stolen and donate as a benevolent , pleased Ahmed Diqqa time to extricate your brain form your ASS and find our hiding place!!

    • Alemeshet says:

      Wedi Nakfa: leave Ahmed Deeq Hussein and all Ethiopians alone ! And mind your business! May be you are doing your business of serving the Shaebia’s and Egypt’s long term interests at the expense and division of Ethiopian people, And we are not happy to see you doing that. Instead mind your business of saving the lives of Eritrean youths who perish in the high sees of Mediterranean and Red see.in route for better opportunities somewhere else in the world other than their country.

  10. Be ewnetu says:

    The Ethi-Somali and Afar region is totally changed in the past 25 years.
    This government cames by sacrifice of youth Tigreans. Which is not doing Derg and Majesty such kind of development and equality budget for them. That’s why they always think positive for Tivreans.
    If Tigrai is forced to split by gragile the central regime Ogaden and Afar will not stay with the others. Thanks to Egypt and Eritrea for supporting Gim7/Esat for anti-Tigrean strategy. They don’t emagine the next Target will be Amhara by supporting other tribes……
    hopefully will not happen this vision Egypt+Shaebia=Gim7ESAT.
    The tribal designer TpLF also have to convert the 3000yrs old unity of our nation. Tigreans are affected in and out by the bad governance of EPRDF/woyane too…..

  11. Sol says:

    You guys have to know, we should not allow this displacement to never happen as Ethiopian, but you did it if no one told you when many of your brothers soldiers where sent without shoe from Eritrea in 1985, many tigrians where opening their doors, clothing feeding them from what they had, but now you sending them without their belongings, what a shame and you call yourself Ethiopian, what a fake

  12. Abegaz says:

    This shows how TPLF is getting desperate and becoming helpless and hopeless because of the situation it is facing right now which is never had been this way before for the last 25 years.

    Amhara and Oromo are now united and care one another as they have been for hundreds years including during the Fasiledes era 400 and 500 years ago. We know Amhara and Oromo were ruling Gonder that time. Amhara, Oromo and all Ethiopians together defeated the Ethiopian enemies throughout history including Italy in Adwa despite the Banda Tigres were with Italy preferring the European colonization than being free and part of Ethiopia.

    Amhara and Afar are becoming closer never before with vision to work together against their common enemy and benefit together where Green and highland Amhara guarantee the Afar people with Food, drink and so on while Afar with minerals and the rout towards the sea coast. Woyane is their common enemy in many ways including occupying the Amhara and afar lands which is 50% of the current Tigry kilil territory created illegally and is under occupation by force. TPLF is using as big weapon its own constitution written by itself alone secretly in the isolation while they had been on the Tigry Mountain as rebels causing civil war against Ethiopia.

    The reason why TPLF and Tigres are desperately trying to have relationship with the Somali region of Ethiopian regime, not the people, is because of they are out casted by the rest of Ethiopia. TPLF is now trying to widen the gap and create hostilities between the Oromo on one side and Ethiopian Somali on the other knowing the two have outstanding territory claims from both sides. It is also the same between Afar and Ethiopian Somali.

    This is typical the TPLF/Tigres way of destroying Ethiopia in a way they can continue doing what they are doing against all Ethiopians for the last 25 years. They cannot/will not make the Amhara and Oromo people fighting and hurting against each other anymore as they did in the past 25 years. The Amhara and Oromo people that are 67% of the population do know they have the worst common enemy and they are now united to deal with it together. That is why TPLF is looking to create other conflict zone channels between Oromo VS Ethiopian Somali and Afar VS Ethiopian Somali acting as if it does care about the Ethiopian Somali.

    This have been the TPLF daily main jobs creating all sorts of conflicts, divisions and hates against Amhara from all fronts and sides and it did work for them for last 25 years. But not anymore. This is the great Amhara people pay back time against TPLF and its evil supporters while reconciling and uniting with the rest of Ethiopia in order to become united and victorious against the common enemy which is known as far as internationally.

    We are waiting to see PM Hailemariam Desalegn becoming really the PM of Ethiopia instead of the TPLF agent in Ethiopian serving them to build the greater Tigry; they are planning to create as an independent state. We are hoping they will do that. But one very important thing must be clear. And that is Each and every centimeter Amhara land taken by TPLF from Gonder, Wollo and afar as well will never ever become part of Tigry even for a day. We are not living in the TPLF/Tigry fantasy world under the Jungle law and order but the 21-century where international rules and laws are there to be respected.

    So, do really they think the so called Greater Tigry will be materialized and get recognition by the International community without any history to be an independent nation? Do really they think Tigry will be allowed to take lands don’t belong to it from Gonder crossing the Tekeze River which is a natural and historical boarder between Tigry and Gonder, Raya from Wollo that was always part of Amhara including Debre Damo, Maichew, Korem, Alamata and so on?

    This so called visit by the Ethiopian Somali regime is nothing else but the isolated and out casted TPLF/Tigres desperate move trying to isolate the Ethiopian Somali regime and the people, from the rest of Ethiopia with fear it also will become part of the rest of Ethiopia that is becoming a trend and the right thing to do being united against the common enemy brutal rules and crimes.

    • Alemeshet says:

      Abegaz: you are demonstrating how grossly Chauvinistic and/or bigoted personal opinions you have, against the brave, proud and indomitable people of Tigray, Ethiopia; who are the foundation and pillar of the Ethiopian nation, and its history and civilization . They protected Ethiopia from Arabs. Ottomans, Italians and other European colonialists without compromise. Who do you think is the real banda? not the people of Tigray, but whoever abandoned and allowed Bahre Negash or present days Eritrea to remain in the hands of Italy is.

  13. JOJO says:

    “But those people against ethnic based federalism and national constitution got shocked and it became like sharp painful arrow stumped over their chest and swallowing saliva back to their stomach.”

    could not be more articulated ! Thanks a million bro !

  14. Friend says:

    The supporting one group while other are being ignored could lead to more division in the country. What we need is holistic solution without showing favoritism to one group. The displacement shouldn’t have happened and but also the killing of innocent Oromo and Amhara children. More than 500 innocent people have been killed with no accountability and justice. Not even compensation, non of the family even received a visit from the government.

    We should all stand for true Justice which unifies people without preconditions.

  15. Tesfa Tesfa says:

    We know how the TPLF politics work: divide-and-conquer one ethnic against another. It is cheap, old, ugly but worked in the past 25 years! but, NO MORE! the answer is building a democratic Ethiopia. where NO MORE un-armed civilian killed by their own government and the poison of politically motivated ethnic hatred that TPLF placed as a Technic of surviving dictatorship is NO MORE ! The people said they were scared and moved out fearing the faul-mouth of few hooligans. TPLF is trying to harness yet another political profit out of the misery of the Tigray-people and it knows how to bring its corrupt satellites to do its dirty work …. stop this cheap , irresponsible divide-and-conquer. Instead face the peoples question and facilitate widening democratic rights before it is too late. If TPLF fail to change, its survival even in Tigray as the dominant political entity is withering away by the day … but we all need to work hard and careful that it is replaced with better , more open practice of politics …. the Ethiopian people deserves better.

  16. Shalom says:

    Thank you Ahmed Deeq Hussein. We need to have people like you coming out and defend the beautiful and good heart people of Tigrai. We, people from other ethnic group, should show our love and respect to the people of Tigray. They are targeted and it is so heartbreaking and embarrassing to say the least. I know Tigrians and they are so nice people.

    Love to our brothers the people of Tigrai.

  17. ethoash says:

    The Ethi-Somali and Afar r smarter then the oromo

    they know where they interest lay … joining EPRDF give them more right and freedom without going to war to get the same thing very smart people look the photo they look like they r in AMERICA look the way they dress they live it up

  18. Alem says:

    The president of Somalia region knows what ever is happening to Tigrians is going to happen to other ethnics. He is not foolish to stand there and watch the madness of ethnic cleansing take over. Those of you defending the act of cowards in the name of ethiopia forgot what Ethiopia is. There is no Ethiopia without tigray! No mater what, what we are seeing unfold is, the true color of derg loyalists. No matter how you slice it, that is the fact. Good thing the wise people of tigray know this very well. Otherwise, the people of tigray would have shown the people of amhara what they are capable of again. I hope Ethiopian people in general learn something from the wise and mature people of tigray. It is very easy to replicate what is happening in amhara region in tigray, but the far sited people of tigray don’t believe in an eye for an eye! They will never forget though. I thank our somali region brothers and sisters for your solidarity. The people of tigray will never forget you for generations to come. The mothers and fathers of tigray paid their beloved sons and daughters so the people of Ethiopia including Eritrea to live in peace. The president of somsali assured the children of tigray’s blood didn’t go in vain. Thank you awramba for taking a lot of beating to bring the truth. Keep doing the good job you are doing. Truth will prevail!!

    Only 10M birr?….if I were the president of the Somali region probably I would donate more than 100M Birr for the Golden entehic group of all who helped Solami to be the second ranking ethic group in Ethiopia ….thanks To TPLF

  20. Abay Rebel says:

    Hi Guys, I have opposed TPLF for the past 25 years believing in one Ethiopia and Ethiopiawinet. What happened in August has radically changed my political view forever. What the Ethio-Somali did is perfect for me. That is real Ethiopianness.

    I also opposed TPLF monopolizing the military. Now I am about join TPLF and will make TPLF the strongest party ever existed on earth. I opposed the displacement of Amhara. But I see no Amhara opposing the displacement of poor Tigreans?

    Guess what now? All Tigreans must support TPLF 100% plus my Eritrean family members. Amahra elites you have crossed a red-line now. No one wanted your hate politics. No single Tigreans must join any political movement that is led and inspired by chauvinists, rotten, backward Amhara elites.

    I used to think Amhara were the most patriotic Ethiopians? I was wrong 100% . Amhara chauvinists opposed GERD and asked Egypt to bomb GERD? Yes, prof. Almariam asked Egypt to bomb the GERD? Imagine about it guys? how can you oppose generation of electricity to people who live in darkness , in mudhouse? the Amhara people live in a mud house with no running water, electricity? what is the point of opposing electricity? and asking a foreign country to bomb the GERD? Elias Kilfe asked Egypt to help him to destroy the GERD? Why do Amhara KKKs wanted to oppose GERD? It is called jealousy and backwardness.

    Who is banda? banda is Menelick who sold Half Tigreans today’s Eritrea for 30 000 hand guns. No single Tigreans sold Ethiopians people and land. Menelick sold half Tigreans for some 30 000 guns and ammunitions and he signed away the land, the people by printing his fingers on paper? he signed away Djibouti for 90 years? he signed away Blue Nile by printing his fingers he will not touch the river?

    All Tigreans must now united now despite political differences. TPLF has to stop corruption 100% because it is the corruption of TPLF is making Tigreans victims. Few hodam woyanes are corrupt and shaming the entire Tigreans? Woyanewoch, Hodachu Ykeded, wedi Keddti, leba. you are subjecting Tigreans to humiliation because of you greedy stomach.

    Tigreans have 100% right to support TPLF and no Amhara chauvinists has moral or right to tell them whom they must support.

    What has happened in Gonder, Bahdare must unite all Tigreans without any question. All Tigreans must united and must clean to corrupt woyanes from its ranks and make sure every Ethiopian right is protected including Amhara and Oromos and people must be educated about democracy and right at village. There is no democracy that tolerates anarchy or violence. I have lived for 20 years in democratic countries and my right is limited and there is red line. I have no right to go out and burn things and claim the protest is /was peaceful.

    Thank you Amhara Chauvinists or Amhara KKKs and we will not support you 0.0000000000%. You killed yourself your agenda by your own hand. You did it yourself. No Tigreans must waste time try to work with you. You do not qualify. No Tigreans must be intimidated after now. You have no right to intimidate and tell people whom they should support.

    Instead of opposing policies, you became racists and you claim you have a right to discriminate others? well, now all Tigreans must support TPLF and reform its and clean it because Woyanes is far better than the chauvinists who do not even tolerate different views.

    Do not come here and tell me Tigreans banda while you are the banda yourself.

  21. Teshome Ye Erer/Afdem Lij says:

    The author writes:

    ‘As an Ethiopian somali born proud citizen of Ethiopia, I do not see any justifiable reason to displace, intimidate, subjugate and kill any innocent Ethiopian citizen from any particular ethnic group. It’s a bad behavior and action to be condemned.’

    That is deep, man. That brought me almost to tears. I was born and grew up at a place with a lot of people of Somali ethnic group. Some of them are still around here nearby and in Ethiopia. I speak their language as fluent as I know. In fact, I prefer to talk to them in Somali whenever we see each other or call. That was the spirit of the common man then and it should remain the same now or into infinity. Nobody should be proud of disparaging or pushing around any ethnic group. We have been there and done that already. And that has left us all knee deep in so much political muddle, a mess that will take more than a generation to render it irrelevant or done away with. Such a noble article helps and helps a lot. Keep plugging away my countryman. Peace!!!

    “Displaced Innocents of Tigrai?”

    How come they can be displaced from the Amhara TPLF created kilil while they are in the Amhara historical and natural territories in Gonder and Wollo?

    Humera is Amhara. Wolkaite is Amhara, Telemt is Amhara. Qaftya is Amhara, Tegede is Amhara and all territories that are part of Tigry in the past 20 years illegally made by TPLF crossing the Tekeze River in Gonder are the Amhara territories. It is the same with the other Amhara territories for thousands years in Wollo before 20 years ago TPLF illegally made them part of Tigry. Korem, Alamata, Maichew, Debre Damo and the likes in Wollo are the historical and natural Amhara territories.

    So, how come they are talking about displacement while they are in these Amhara territories for now are illegally part of Tigry? Do they think the world is so stupid unable to see and understand this?

  24. Gorad says:

    we deplore any group that use violence be Amhara Tigrai or Oromo we are all Ethiopians and we must work together to make this country well. we should not be out of our sight and mind we are brothers at the end of the day. politics is rabish brotherhood is what really matters. put politics aside brothers

  25. shiferaw says:

    when we Ethiopians unite , support and help one region to another , it is a great kick to shaebia , G-7 , egypt and the derg reminants . the Ethio somali regional state leadership and people is always the pionear region when our country is confronted by some problems , for instance when shaebia conguers Ehiopia in 1998 . so , we Ethiopians have a great respect to the leadership and people of our brothers and sisters of the Ethio somali regional state. thank U again .

  26. Girmay says:

    It is disturbing to see Ethiopians finding it hard to condemn an evil act, no matter who it is perpetrated against. It is even more disturbing when people criticize those who condemn such act.
    I see many Ethiopians inadvertently condoning this scary act of targeting a particular ethnic group, by referring to other incidents which may have been committed on other ethnic groups. Some blame it on federalism without condemning the act.
    The failure to unequivocally condemning this act is not limited to those in social media. Even EPRDF didn’t make its condemnation loud and clear enough.
    Condemning this act doesn’t mean one is ignoring the treatment of peaceful demonstrators who fell victims in the process of demanding their constitutional rights. We should condemn any acts that caused such death or harm on peaceful demonstrators.
    Thank you Mr president and thank you the people and government of Somali region.

  27. I’m wondering some people’s comments and their arguments. First let us realize that we are all Ethiopian irrespective to region and ethnic. So if we agree to this point. I believe that every Ethiopian citizen has a right to live in peaceful way any place that he/she likes irrespective the origin of his/her ethnic & region. But the administration and decision making people must be from the people of origin of particular region. Therefore, political & leadership roles of people and their choice of residence are totally different.
    Some say why Tigrean people live in Amara territories or zones such mentality is totally wrong and narrow. Who you know how many Amara people live in Ethiopia- Somali region everywhere, every town because they are Ethiopian and no one will displace but may not have significant role in decision making and political power but still they can be among civil servants, professional and technical expertise. Oromo people are also some, Gurage are people can be seen every kebeles let alone big towns. People SNNPR are also everywhere in Somali region. No a single Ethiopian citizen can be asked why he came to Somali region. I think it’s some as true with other regions in the country.
    I want to address one other important point for sure everywhere neighboring people, or regions or clans there are always certain issues related to border and conflicts but that has to be solved in a peaceful way. For instance; there are many people originally from Amara but born, grow up in Ethio-Somali region and we are living together house to house for many years. And we have no problem to enjoy with us as brotherly & sisterly. Bear in mind when today Tigrean people displaced From Amara region tomorrow innocent Amara region will be displaced other place so do you think this is good act or do you think the displacing do think such issue will remain only Amara & Tigrai ?. Please I do believe we are all Ethiopian have equal rights, we have respect each other and think in broader way. And move forward. Racist is backwardness. We do not have any problem or hate to any particular Ethiopian ethnic and we do respect all of them. Whether they are Amara, Oromo, Tigrai, benshagul, Hadiya, Walayta, Gurage, Afar, kunama, kullo, yam, kafaa, and all other they are some to us and we are some all of us.

    Thank you all.

    Helping some one in not bad. But to help some one to kill more is worse/wromg. Somali cabnet did not represent Somali Region. It is small pupet of the smaller woyane. See what with Liyu something there. If woyane ´goes, this cabnet will not stay one day in Jigjiga. The aim is, as Abegaz said above, to make the gap between Oromo and Somali wider. Somali-Region will have woredas from Oromya, may loose a Zone to oromo and Afar, like tigrai will soon loose the looted zones of gonder and wollo. This man above is a poor propagandist, with out any clue/knowlege or interseted to have a conflict in the somali region. By the way somalis should know principally, there is no conflict between the People of Tgrai and Amhara. It is like a problem in the same familie, brothers and sisters. Do not be foolish. All Ethiopians have the right to live and work any where in ethiopia. IF some people targeted and evicted bei force we shoud say no as a principle. It was smart if this somalis said no as amharas forcefully evicted from differnt parts of ethiopia. At all be wise somalis, do not drawn with the sinking boot!.

      you Guy, you are dreaming Ethio-Somali region is not pupet and is not as you though, by the way i think you don’t hint about Somali region which is one of most powerful region in the country, its the Oromo that will loose woredas of somali like Babile and one single day Omoro will never hold babile and many others but for sure Oromo will escape their most of territory if the issue become somali and Oromo, we know that oromo got advantage and an opportunities being EPRDF which gave a chance to took our land but one day soon will return back to under control of Somali region believe me this is facts. it obvious that oromo cannot defend Somalis people a half day.
      ONAAG will be uprooted soon. we are proud heroes Tigrai people & Somali People of Ethiopia.

      number without quality does not determine, you will never see Oromo ruling in Ethiopia The Great animal Living Africa (GALA) racist.

    Dear Ahmed,
    Recently, I have got the opportunity to read some of your articles mainly on Aiga Forum. I know that except websites like Aiga Forum, it is most unlikely that other genuine websites waste their time and publish your rubbish articles. In computer science, there is a concept called GIGO (Garbage-In-Garbage-Out). It is the same thing that you are filled up with lies and hatred and you spit out the garbage in the form of the so-called articles. Coming to the point, you have written a recent article regarding how proud you are for the 10 million birr aid sent from your illiterate boss (Illiterate Abdi!) for displaced Tigrians from Gonder. The first thing what you and your illiterate boss didn’t know was that most of the Tigrians including my half relatives are still living in Gonder with their Amhara neighbors and brothers. Even two of the top TPLF heavyweights including Abay Tsehaye and Debretsion recently testified there was no any friction between the two brotherly people except some unfortunate cases by some extreme elements. For that matter, it was not only the Tigrians but also the Amharas who are suspected of EPRDF supporters were affected. Also, I doubt very much even whether you know most of the Gonderes and Tigrians are intermarried in large numbers than any other intra-clan marriage in Ethiopia.
    While the situation was this, your moron boss (the illiterate Abdi) who has a lot of Ethio-somali blood in his hands advertised his ignorance by taking one side even without looking the other directions. Well, Abdi’s intention was not really stemmed from his concern for the displaced Tigrians. Rather his worry is that if TPLF that is staggering now due to the current upheaval of protests from all directions collapse, all criminals and mass murders including Abdi will be brought to justice for the genocide they committed on their people. As you know, Abdi and his notorious Liyu police militia that is known as the “Janjaweed” of Ogaden have killed more Ethio-somali people than what Dergue and H/Sellasie killed in 60 years combined. It was an open secret that even in June 2016, more than 100 innocent children, women and elderly were killed by the blood thirsty illiterate liyu police militia around Gashamo town. I personally met some of the Ethio-somalis who escaped this massacre in Nairobi very recently. Abdi and his followers including yourself have also other objectives when you side one group and denounce the other group. It is a common knowledge that Abdi is the most corrupt regional official who bought many properties in Dubai and even senior officials at the federal level are complaining Abdi is corrupting the EPRDF generals who are assigned in Jigjiga and Harar. Therefore, it is a great opportunity for Abdi to hide this crime by declaring his loyalty to TPLF. Otherwise, how on earth, you can snatch 10 million birr from a pastoralist community of the Somali region who are suffering the most in the recent drought? Last but not least, let me ask you just few questions if you are really God fearing person like other genuine Somalis:
    Did you write even a single line in denouncing the massacres and jailing of thousands of Oromo’s and Amharas just for protesting against economic and political marginalization?
    Did you write even a single line in denouncing the displacement of more than 80,000 Amharas from the Southern and Benshangul region some two years ago?
    Can you ask the illiterate Abdi whether he denounced the displacement of other ethnic groups in the past, forget about sending millions of money?
    Why do think that all other regional presidents except the illiterate Abdi are reserved to comment on the fictional theory of Tigrawy displacement?

    I hope you may respond to this at your earliest time.

    Brother Ahmed Deeq Hussein,

    I am an Eritrean by birth and a naturalized citizen of the USA. I was a field Geophysicist in Ethiopia 1979-1983. I was working with the Soviet Petroleum Exploration Expedition in geophysical well logging September 1982 to September 1983 in Ogaden Basin.

    I read your article ” 10 Million Birr Donation by Ethio-Somali Region to Displaced Innocents of Tigrai” on the internet. I am impressed by your observation.

    Please keep up the good job.

    Dear Ahmed Deik

    Thank you for an excellent article, analysis and insight. You hit the nail on the head. We appreciate the heroic stand and decision of the Ethiopian-Somali Government. It is also sending a stern message to the faceless remnants of the old regime that we stand together to protect the federal system of government and fellow Ethiopians in need. They were defeated by the victorious TPLF in the battle front. The people they are attacking are civilian
    Tigreans not TPLF. These shameful “Facebook Warriors” are inciting gullible people with hate propaganda, harassment, intimidation, looting and disseminating false information to bring back the old system. It is gone forever. Federalism is working well in Ethiopia. Region 5 is a shining example. No more second class citizens. We are ALL equal since May 28,1991 thanks to EPRDF. We are moving forward not backwards! This is the 21st century! The enemies of democracy, equality and progress are targeting Tigreans because they spearheaded the movement for equality and unity in diversity. Thank you immensely.
    Long live Ethiopia and Africa.

  33. Dear Ahmed Deeq Hussein.

    I read your article in support of Somali Government’s brotherly support to displaced Tigris civilians.

    I share your undrestadnging of the need to strengthen the federal system. I also join you in condemning hateful action taken against innocent Ethiopians from Tigrai origin. If we don’t speak out against this kind of behaviours as you did the haters will have more strength and will cause more damages to the unit and coexistence of all Ethiopians.

    Keep up your good job and speak up for the truth.

    I look forward reading more of your articles.

  34. Hi Ahmed,

    It is nice to read such statement from our Brothers and sisters somali people.

    The aim of this killing and intimidating targeted region is just to destabilize our federal system. It is organized by elite Amhara people who is living in diaspora . We have already witnessed how they had been ruled the country many many years and oppresséd and mariginalized other etnic people.
    we will never be back to centralized government.. Never!!

    Thanks //Yorda

  35. Hey Ahmed,
    I saw yet another drivel where you kissed the butts of your masters the Tigrians. So, your dictator so called president gave 10 million birr that could have been used for the poor Somalis who are dying of thirst. What a shame? He knows that an ignorant buffoon like him could only be put in that position where he can loot if he kisses the butt of his masters. I am surprised you join him in doing so. Instead of relying on them and sending his thuggish militia to the neighbors to loot and maim, he should start finding a way to live peacefully as the TPLF will not be the masters for a long time. You also should find a productive trade that you can live on —when your masters lose the power and will be more concerned with their own than mercenaries. Somalis are proud people who fought and continue to fight for their rights– they don’t need to kiss up to bandits who killed their sons and raped their sisters and mothers. But then who said the world is free of scumbags who would do anything to be treated to crumbs.

    Regards

    Very surprising when some people comments Amara & Oromo are unified to defeat Tigrai people, I want to tell these people if Amara and Oromo united let you know Tigrai people and Ethiopian Somali People are also united to balance Amara & Oromo Alliance. Then in eastern part Ethiopian Somali is enough to defeat Oromo and Tigrai is enough to defeat Amara. So reality is tit for tat. Nort pole and east pole will balance the country’s equilibrium.
    By way do you people of Ethiopian Somali are displaced in Oromo where so called Bel-belayti thousands of thousands. Therefore know these two particular ethnics are racist & hatred from the rest of Ethiopian population. And both of them displaced innocent Ethiopian.
    However; reality is differ as you think and it will never happen as you though. You how Somali people were fighting the people of Whole Ethiopia for long time but it does not cost defeat oromos in eastern part of Ethiopia 1000 oromos only 10 Somalis will match. This is the truth.

    let you know Tirgai people are not alone they have their Ethiopian Somali people

    • ATOSER says:

      I hope you mean Ethiopian Equilibrium, the unity under diversity! Yes ethiopia will survive any agression. If somali unite with tigrai and oromo unit with amara there will no reason for amara and tigre or somali and oromo to fight. We are brothers, Be frank, you hate ethiopia! give up then we will have peace with you. looser

      No one wins in a civil war. Please stay away from Ethiopian politics if you are not matured enough for it.. People like you are the one destroying the country in both sides..

      Little knowledge is always dangerous..

    The Tigrayans took so many innocent lives of Ethiopian Somalis ,10 million birr does not surprise anyone when these Tigrayan soldiers take our lives and any self respect we got regularly for 25+ years. Genocide at it’s worst had been done to Ethiopian Somalis for 25+ years.Even the Coca Cola mix beverage distributed in Somali region is made inferior worst quality diabetes cau7sing drink while Tigray region gets the best quality real coca cola . Somali region is getting left over crumbs of Tigray region in every commodities.
