    Why Aljazeera is not covering the revolution inside Bahrain ?

    Is there any law which forbids Aljazeera news coverage inside Bahrain & that allows Press TV to cover ?

    Is there a kind of Suni News & Shiaa News media coverage law ?

    Ethiopia living in a volatile horn of Africa has a legitimate security concern, so fighting terrorism is a survival to its nation. Like any law the new anti-terrorism proclamation has its own weakness and strength. period
    To blame squarely this law is a used as a weapon to stifle the voice of the opposition or freedom of speech, is not only a deception but also a prejudice residing in many western countries and their media out let. However Ethiopian government won’t entertain this baseless accusation.
    In the first place, the above documentary is only One sided report and doesn’t show the whole story. More over it gives all the privilege for foreign ‘journalists’ like the martin and his colleges to do the worst crime to violet the sovereignty of a country. I don’t understand why the Aljazeer takes this crime lightly. I believe such a crime happened in the westerns the story definitely would have been different. This is completely ridiculous
    Secondly, when I hear the issue of democracy and freedom from an international news out let like Al jazeer, it is completely hypocrisy. It is not Al jazeera who turned a blind eye for Arab world oppression and lack of democracy.
    Does Al jazeera report any time in its history the barbaric handling of Ethiopian destitute young girls in the Arab world?
    This a media I won’t ever trust it in my life. we don’t need any body to tell us and we knew very for what this media stands for.

    Al Jazeera got it wrong most of this are Taxi drivers and comedians who are in it for the money, two or three are professional journalist. This pro journalist who are in Ethiopia have been funded and tricked to engage in unlawful act and used by the toxic diaspora wanna be pass-time journalist.

    Al Jazeera get your fact right

    These Savage Arab news outlet should have cleaned their own savage treatment of citizens of the world instead of pointing their fingers at Ethiopia ! We know how they treat east Afticans when they enter their country!

    Historically , when Muslim extremists rise in the Middle East , it touches Ethiopia , we can remember the rise of Mohammad Gragn, Alqaeda, Alshabab…!

    Harish Anti terrorism laws is very important for Ethiopia more than any country in the world…! This is the work of children of alQureshi! The Axumite empire declined because it refused to hand over the first Muslim refugees to the Quresh messengers! At that time , Quresh & Jews used to control trades between Far East , east Africa , Asia Minor , Egypt , greece & the Roman Empire ….!

    Ethiopia is the biggest power in east Africa , therefore, Ethiopia has historical responsibility to make sure our region is in control & at peace!
