    This is an excellent piece of article: the right message at the right time, for a lasting solution.

    But I doubt if those recommendations could be accpeted by the 4th patriarch due to the following reasons:

    1. The Synod in exile, who has been promoting the 4th patriarch, would reject your idea (even the Patriarch is willing to conceed power to the 6th)
    2. Main opposition websites in the diaspora (ETHSAT, Ethiopian Review, Ethio-Media, ECADF, …) would reject the idea out rightly — becuase they need this conflict to continue and make their websites constantly visited)
    3. Main politicians and activists (Berhanu Nega, Andargachew, Tamagn, Abebe Gelaw, …) would not reject it openly. But they would do every thing to twist the arms of the 4th patriarch not to flich an inch. They need this fiascco to continue as a talking point- which is a perrenial soapbox for their outcry.

    I wish there were more responsible individuals, websites, politicians, and activists- who seek solutions to the ongoing problems than making them worse.

    It is funny Girma Kassa is always comes on the side of the powerful. I remember how he wanted us to accept the elections for the sake of peace. His has not notion of justice. Now the injustice of removal of patriarck is no big deal. He advice we should accept the winners.
    What a guy and a christian!
