    Tedila Asfaw, the dead Derg & Feudal regime strong man keep crying in New York.

    The idiot is pretending & acting like an activist, a religious man, freedom & democracy fighter, writer etc ………. for the people of Ethiopia.

    Tedila wanted to cheat us by telling his success story so far achieved like ‘Yes for Romney, No for Obama!’, petition to block Suzan Rice from becoming Secretary of State, showing the portrait of Bishop Merkoriwos to American people while pass by to inform the lack of religious freedom in Ethiopia.

    Final day barking in New York City for the return of Orthodox Religion & Bishop to the orthodox religion followers of Ethiopia who abandoned their belief & electing their religious leader before 21 years.

    Tedila Asfaw’s barking like a mad dog in front of Westerners will going to achieve Nothing !

    The crime committed twenty years ago when most of us were not aware of cost us division, hostility and mistrust among us especially who live out of the country. The people in power have the same un changed agenda they did it twenty years ago with no resistance and if we don’t stop them now they will do it again. For us it is very important time, every little voice count. We need to mobilize the believers now to every church and send a message enough is enough.

    Abuna Merkorios (Patriarch and Catholicos of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church) was the fourth Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church

    Elected after the death of Abuna Takla Haymanot in May 1988. Merkorios remained Patriarch for three years until 1991, when the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) triumphed over the Communist military junta known as Derg in Addis Ababa.

    Known before his elevation to the episcopacy as Abb(Father) Ze-Libanos Fanta, he was born into the minor nobility of Beghemidir Province. He was considered something of a liturgical expert, and served for many years at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa. Abba Ze-Libanos was raised to the rank of Bishop by Patriarch Abuna Takla Haymanot in 1976 over his home province of Beghemidir (then known as
    Gondar Province), taking the name Merkorios.

    Abuna Merkorios served as Archbishop of Gondar until he became Patriarch of Ethiopia in 1988.

    Abune Merkorios’ tenure of Archbishop of Gondar included the period known as the “Red Terror” in Ethiopia, and which was carried out with particular brutality in the town and province of Gondar under the governorship of Melaku Teferra, a particularly notorious member of the Derg.

    Abuna Merkorios would later face accusations of not only having kept silent during the horrors of the “Red Terror” in Gondar, but of having a particularly close relationship with Governor Melaku. In a sign of the favor of the Derg regime.
    In 1987 Abune Merkorios was appointed as one of a very small and select group of clergy to serve as a member of the Shengo, the national parliament set up by the Derg when it proclaimed the People’s Democratic Republic of Ethiopia that year. He remained a member of the parliament until his enthronement as Patriarch.

    These allegations of closeness to the Communist Derg regime helped undermine the Patriarch, when the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) came to power.

    ‘’Activist ‘’ Tedela Asfaw I wonder if the majority of Ethiopian Diaspora have given their ears to you since most of them really Knew what you would like to have, by any means you need political power; either directly or on cover of Ethiopian Orthodox church. Hahaha… and what surprised me also that you call yourself ‘activist’, an ‘activist’ whom live far from the hub, Ethiopia. I wish if you spent your time on good things to our mother land before you becomes exhausted on all matters.

    I bet diaspora Ethiopians are confused very much, I mean the so called opposition. The fact they are yergo zimboch, they get involved everywhere and wherever there is some smoke shows they have no any agenda. They joinned islamicists. Now they are joining the self-exiled political derg pope Merkoriyous. They have been in bed with Shabia, in bed with islamicist, in bed with political pope Merkorious who was bombing Tigrai and Eritrea together with Mengistu Hailemariam. They are trying to use everything to get to Arat kilo. The other thing, they tell us the Ethiopian people elected them? is that an insult to the Ethiopian? they think they are smarter than the Ethiopians in Ethiopia? why? is it because they live in Washington Ghetto public houses? why they think they can represent the 94 million people? why they think the people in Ethiopia are not able to think for themselves? arrogance of ignorance of is the worst of all things on this earth. If there were no arrogant people in this world, we would not have all these wars. Anyway, ignore the loser diaspora they will not get anywhere as they have not got anywhere in the past 21 years. The worst they can do is go to the gate of white house to beg freedom like wheat? The white must have been by now very tired of seeing these Ethiopians toytoying at their get every year or every month? is it not shameful to toytoy 21 years at the gate of a white house and downing street in London? They even now respect for themselves leave alone to give freedom to anyone. I would be very embarrassed to go every year to white house to beg freedom on silver plate from a foreign government. Did these people learn anything from the outside world? shame, shame all

    As far as the Ethiopian churchs in the diaspora don’t distance themselves from the likes of Abune Merkorios (aka General Merkorios), Abebe Gelaw (who spoke inside the church that Saint Gabriel sent him to bark at the late pm Meles), and other dergue remnants and feudalists, unity of the church will be very difficult to attain!

    Dear Awramaba times: I believe that the opinions posted on your website need to reflect the way forward towards building free and democratic society. The opinions posted above by Kiki, habtamu, selamawit, betty et al do have a warm welcome on ethiopian reporter, Tigrai Online, Deki….., so that only those people who posted them read them for themselves.

    pray for zos toxic and confused Diasporas. the relate every thing to politics. Today nobody is above any body in Ethiopia. NO more of oppressing by neftegnas and their superiority. So please distance ur self from our religion ….yergo zeneb neger

  11. Birabiro says:

    I think the best way is to follow the legal patriarch in Ethiopia! Merkorion already left the country on his own will! therefore, leave the bandit Merkorios & follow the Orthodox leadership in Ethiopia!

    In my opinion, stop following the illegal church in the diaspora!
