    What? Let him clean his mess first. But Officials in EThiopia should carefully watch EGypt’s step. Since their politics is in an enormous crisis they may resort to use the Nile issue as a pretext to divert public attention. I think the PM’s remark could be the beginnings of this dirty political maneuver. Make no mistaken EGYPT Ethiopians are dead committed to end their ecnomic problem by using their GOd given resource like river Nile. Gone are the days when Egyptian monks were fooling us by using their hidden influence through religion.

    What action? Simply to divert their people attention from their real problems? This fanatic Egyptian politician can say whatever they want to say. It is clear except words they will never try a military confrontation with Ethiopia. they know their past history. I do not think why we Ethiopian do not repeat the same victorious history. It is still shining in the ETHIOPIAN sky. No matter how they equipped with american weapons, weapon itself will not win our victorious tradition, a tradition that will never fade up for our traditional enemies like Egypt. It is better for this blood sucker tugs to choose peaceful dialog how we both can equitably use the Nile water.
    The Ethiopian government should not seek any mediator, including America or European countries. We know they will stand with Egypt due to the so called “Strategic importance for their national security”. That is why they are pumping money and military equipment when the Egyptian junta overthrow the “democratically” elected Muslim government. If it is not Egypt measures would have been taken against any country. But for western national interest is more precious than democracy, or will of the people.

    The Ethiopian government should not seek any mediator, including America or European countries. I heard what the former American Ambassador to Ethiopia what he said in one of his interview. He said that the Ethiopian government is keeping secret about the construction of the GRD. Yes we have to be secret to secure our national interest. How many secret American have towards others countries? God knows!
    We all know they will stand with Egypt due to the so called “Strategic importance for their national security”. That is why they are pumping money and military equipment when the Egyptian junta overthrow the “democratically” elected Muslim government. If it is not Egypt measures would have been taken against any country. But for western national interest is more precious than democracy, or will of the people.
    The Ethiopian government should believe and relied on the Ethiopian people. To do that a lot political move need to be implemented. What need to be clear here is that the confrontation (in any form) with Egypt is certain or unavoidable. These people are blind and ego. They will never look Nile from our perspective and they do not have any sympathy to our cause. To deal with the devil we have to act as devil!period! Do not forget, that the war is not about Nile it is about religion too. No matter what they claimed they are against Muslim brother hood the remnants who claimed “moderate” will not be moderate for us, for the country considered us as a Christian country.

    As I have been saying all along. The only solution for Egypt force. You can not negotiate with Arab. you have to hit their head like a snake. These are not humans to deal with. If I was an Ethiopian prime minister I will make sure I am able to hit them when I must. No deal with these animals of islam. Even now, we told you stop sleeping and get things ready and tell them to do whatever they want. Apply the law of physics. No baby sitting, win win bla bla. They have no right; they must pay for every drop of our water. No deal with these idiots.

  5. Abegaz says:

    If Egyptians even attempt to bomb Ethiopia using American fighter jets recently supplied to them, we will divert the Nile course to flow to the south. Atse Sertsedingle warned Egypt 800 years ago that if they continue to treat the Egyptian Coptic badly, he will divert Nile and they kept quiet and behaved properly. It is so easy for us to do this. Every Egyptian jebdegna must know this and the government of Ethiopia must tell them in the face.

  6. God bless Oromiyaa says:

    This is just bullshit. In the first , there was not a word ‘ Ethiopia’ in the Bible written in Hebrew . The Cushitic Land was wrongly translated into Ethiopia( burnt face)in the New Testament.

    • Gezaee says:

      Please Dawit: get rid of Shabia dogs from your website. Do not make your website tigraiionline. Please do not tolerate any bull-shitting about any tribe here; We do not need anything that divide our people in the name of oromo or amhara or tigrie ,…. get rid of the shabias from your website. get rid of this called: God bless Oromiyaa(shabia)

  7. Yonas says:

    The Ethiopian government, which operates under the roof of the African Union, can not hold official discussions and sign deals with the current interim ‘government’ in Egypt only because this ‘government’ is not recognized by the continental body. The AU has suspended Egypt from its membership since the coup which automatically makes the current administration illegitimate to negotiate on the behalf of Egypt. With that being said, Ethiopia is willing to hold any discussions on the Nile issue with anybody from Egypt to enhance further the mutual benefits of the two people and all Nile basin countries.
    Yonas ~ unofficial representative of the Ethiopian Government::

    • Gezaee says:

      Dear Yoyanes, that is good one; you must repeat it as press release. You can see they do not know they are out of the game. But still because they have no respect for Affricans. They are out of the AU did not mean to them anything. It is true the AU has got a new teeth on Egypt. Use that one, EPRDF has another 6 or more to get ready for any eventuality. The jets they got from USA are old which are not used anymore in USA. USA is damping them as scrap. If we buy the SU-35 of Russian,they are the top notch in the world to deal with any aggressor.

  8. teshome says:

    What is this Egyptians foreign minster is talking about? Egypt is sliding to a civil war, the situation is getting worse by the very minute. Aw we speak 50 innocent Egyptian died since ousted Morsi.
    First Egyptians need to clean up their to talk to Ethiopia this Foreign Minister is a hypocrite to talk about Nile while Egypt at the climax of chaos.
    May be he is trying to bring Nile politics into the mix Egyptian internal affair. That won’t work, We distinctly remember what Morsi did few weeks ago.
    The whole world is eagerly watching Egypt’s fate

  9. galaxy says:

    Yes, now the militaryin egypt can go to a dangerous move. They will think they can be benfited by diverting the attention of their people to an external enemy, “ethiopia”. For sure, now they will go to war. They will use both eritrea and somalia as a lunching pad.
    The Ethiopian government shall make all kinds of preparations. The arabs saudi and UAE and kuwait have donated them 12bln dollars. they were bunkrapted. Arabs(i do not mean muslims) are always our enemies. America has also armed them with lastest jet fitghers. They want to pressurize Ethiopia to detach it from china and other countries. Americas are the most selfish and gready people in this world.

    Anyway GOD will keep Ethiopia as usual.
    Ethiopia always stretch its hands to GOD

  10. galaxy says:

    here is a statement taken from the egypt’s FM statement
    –In the statement, Abd El-Aty stressed that Egypt’s “water security is not to be haggled with,” condemning Ethiopia’s continued construction on the dam while “ignoring the technical committee’s recommendations.”—

  11. Eshetu says:

    Welcome another Mursi. It is better to forward your legitimate demand to the public and the world. And also let you put your internal politics and the nile issue in different brief cases.

  12. Ermi says:

    Nabil,

    Stop using the dam for you internal political consumption. Everyone knows there will be no dam to deprive you of your water share. You are making statements to divert the Egyptians attention from the criminal coup that put you in office. Just shut your mouth up and steal the people’s wealth till another democratic election throw you out of office.

    Just so you know, we know that you are financing the woyane tugs to protect your interest. So don’t pretend to be fighting with Woyane.

    Venezuela Revamps Air Defence

    Mérida, 16th July 2013 (Venezuelanalysis.com) – A “powerful anti-aircraft system” is being deployed in the east of Venezuela to counter future incursions into the country’s airspace, President Nicolas Maduro announced on Wednesday.

    “Our homeland is unassailable. Nobody will be able to touch even an inch,” Maduro said from a street government address in Sucre state.

    The system will be installed in the northern Andes, which run through the east of the country. Maduro gave no further details of the artillery to be deployed, only referring to it as “the most powerful system in the world”.

    The Venezuelan military is reportedly been equipped with S-300VM anti-ballistic systems, purchased from Russia. The Russian-made system is designed to counter missiles and fixed-wing aircrafts within a range of 200 kilometres. The S-300 system is considered by some analysts to be among the most effective anti-aircraft systems in the world. Venezuela is currently the largest importer of Russian manufactured arms in South America, and has also worked with Iran to manufacture remote controlled aerial surveillance drones as part of its push to modernise its military.

    The president also called for a “morally and ethically…strong” military, with “revolutionary values, ideology and discipline”.

    The announcement comes ahead of a meeting between Maduro and Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos on Monday.

    The discussion will include a “complete revision of the state of relations”, Santos tweeted on Tuesday.

    “We go with the best good faith, the best goodwill,” Maduro responded from Caracas.

    “We believe in the coexistence of brothers, in the peaceful coexistence of different models,” he stated.

    Colombian-Venezuelan relations took a “step towards derailing” when Santos met with Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles in May, according to Venezuelan foreign minister Elias Jaua.

    “It’s difficult to work for the peace of a brother people when its highest institutions are encouraging and feeding into destabilisation in Venezuela,” Jaua told Venezuelan media following the controversial meeting.

    Earlier this week, Colombian foreign minister Maria Angela Holguin described current relations as “a little cold”, but stated that dialogue between the two countries is ongoing.

    You can’t always trust a wiled animal even if he is domesticated because his wiled nature will show up one day so you have to trite him always with caution. The new Egyptian government is the same thing, the Mohamed Murci government had no diplomacy they are so blatant to expose themselves in front of the world that give justified reason for Ethiopia because it’s against international low to interfere with one counters position group to destabilize that country. but the new government want to do it under the cover of diplomacy because that is what the where doing for long taking nice gustier and cover up and helping all Ethiopian enemies and blocking lawn and help Ethiopia can get from any foreign bank or government.so they want to gain that upper hand back. But for Ethiopia weather Murci’s Muslim’s brother hood or so called Moderates are the same even the worst remember Boutros Boutros Gale and Eritrean secession. A wolf is always a wolf even if he is whirling a sheep skin.

  16. ኣርበኛ says:

    my question is, is there any wise man in egypt who can think and analyse things they just love to bark like a dog. ethiopia is a savern country with dignity and power to decide what to do with its water the water is ethiopian water not egyptian so you can go to hell egyptians with your arab masters.

  17. Bereketwadu says:

    Current group in Egypt is not legitimate gov’t. B/c the came to power by military coup. This is unacceptable in Africa. That is why the AU rejected them & suspended Egypt from membership. So Ethiopia shouldn’t negotiate with this group!

  18. YOHANNES says:

    nothing to do, Egyptians can not do nothing against Ethiopia, all the people against the development of Ethiopia will be perished by God desire. The Ethiopians have suffered enough through their History, for their dignity and religion. Egyptians tried to destabilize Ethiopia through religion and tribalism, but this time God have lessened the prayer of the Ethiopian people, and will give prosperity and peace to the Ethiopian people of good will. Egyptians are source evil in Ethiopia for several years but now they have to pay for their sins, and this is what we are seeing.
    God Bless Ethiopia and ethiopians

  19. Mario says:

    Mr prime minister , the only way is using the Nile in an equitable distribution! The Nile is our own water until it leaves our border! …120 years of distabilizing our motherland is more than enough for you! If you crooked Egyptian politicians don’t want to share the the water that springs from the highlands of Ethiopia , then you can only fuck yourself! I wish I could drink the whole Nile water & pee it on the other side of Khartoum! I could have said , sorry I have drank all the Nile water! no more water! Imagine the hate brewing inside us because of your greedy ass!

    God is watching! I don’t know if you could solve your problems! I could wish you the Syrian style conflict, but forgive me God! How about the women & children? I’m an Ethiopian , therefore, my heart isn’t as cruel as yours! Let God pay you back for the blood spilled in my country because of you !

    God bless Ethiopia!

    Our government must told Egypt on the face that the blue nile is ours it is our resource so we must use as we needed. This savage desert nation already told us we take action. Egypt is a backward nation that exists on our resource and American AID but they look themselves as superior of us in military and others whatever it is my government must be ready to keep the damp from inside and outside enemies I am strongly advised my government never mercy for acts against the damp. I am volunteer to fight Egypt am ready to get the trainee what ever any kind.

    • Ermi says:

      Agezi,

      Good Passion, but you don’t have a patriotic government. They will sacrifice you for fake projects and then they will go back and sleep with the one they gave you up to. Learn from Badme. They sacrificed over 100, 000 Ethiopian youth and they surrender the town to shabia in Algers, Algeria.

      These tugs are working for Egypt. That is why they destroyed the Tana Beles project.

      Peace and love to all!

      Ermi

  21. hager says:

    The government of Ethiopia must not talk with Egypt before they apologize for their falsified threat against brave Ethiopians blue nile for Egypt must be in the interest of Ethiopians only.

  22. Neutrino says:

    Ethiopian people: I have said all the time. Egypt has no right on our water even for a drop of our water; They just do not have any right. If they behave well, they can pay for it like USA pays to Canada, South Africa pays to Losethu. I am against any talking or deal with Egypt on the Nile. I repeat, no talk, no deal on what we do with our water. Simply, it is our resources. We do not need any blessing from anyone.

    My policies:
    1. No deal with Egypt is the best deal for Ethiopia.
    2. No leader in Ethiopia has made mistake on the Nile so far despite they did a lot of tricks to cheat Menelick by making him sign many things using their langauge. EPRDF must never make mistake.
    3. EPRDF (Ethiopia) needs to drag Egypt on talk for another 20 years. Use systematic delay tactic until you build your air defense system, may be get the S-400 or s-500 latest Russian air defense system. If there is no money, take them on credit it is worthy investing in it and it bring stability, peace, and security. Do not delay it; get it now on credit. I am sure the Russians will be happy to sale them on line credit. After that we can tell them fuck off from us.
    4. Never sign any paper please that will limit our use of the water. The future generation of Ethiopians may need it 100%. Do not sign on their behalf please. Please do not sign anything on paper; please
    5. You have enough time to prepare and also set up nuclear and aeronautic defense system research center. This is good opportunity to inspire citizens to engaged in military research. USA America developed advanced missile systems, even nuclear weapons when it was intimidated and threated by Germany. We must use this as source of inspiration to outsmart our historical enemies. Israel did the same. You have to learn from Israel and Russia, North Korea, China on these. You can employ scientist from Russia, Israel, and North Korea on these. The best thing is to start doing things. When you start everything is easy; if you do not start doing or trying things, you will never learn or develop.

    Thus set up the following:
    1. Nuclear programme
    2. Air defense system research center, manufacturing, open Aerospace engineering departments some engineering Faculties in the Universities or set up one university dedicated to aerospace engineering and research
    3. Set up cyber air defense system and research center, may be this can be part of the new National security and intelligence services you are revamping like Israel did recently and or doing it right now.
    4. Get rid of the Islam from Ethiopia. Islam is a security threat to our country. You do not listen but we told you from day one that when you try to eat from Islam, you will be eaten. Money you get from Islam is like an orange fruits with a worm on it. You pick that orange fruits thinking it is edible? but when you open it, it is full of worms inside and then you throw it away. You might eat it, it will kill your body if there is a dangerous worm in it. Money that come from Islam has a killer viruse inside it; you will regret on this if you are still doubting on Islam.

    5. Never change anything on the dam whether size or location or anything.

    6. You can use many tricks, but never allow them to be partner on the dam; if you do, it will be suicide forever.

  23. Mario says:

    The nutty Egyptian Foreign Minster said:

    “We will take action to guarantee the water security of Egypt and preserve our rights in the waters of the Nile,”

    “Preserve our rights”? Colonial rights, right? Nabil Fahmy lives in Colonial era. How does his threat work in this time of human history.

    Nabil Fahmy, please realize you are dead on arrival as foreign minster. Such a rhetoric did not help Morsi. If it is buying you breathing space, try it. Egypt’s only rightful ownership of Nile water is also doomed to fail.

  24. Solomon Tebebu says:

    Gundet 1875 and Gura 1876 were last time you tried us. We whipped your behind then and all you did was suppressing the news of defeat back home.
    In 1967 “six days war”, you didn’t even get a chance to warm up your jet engines as Israel pounded them so they never make it to the sky. Arabs rely heavily on excessive money, number of troops or number of various equipment (fighter jets, Missiles, etc.,). Wars are won if they are just and your army deeply believes in them. An Example at hand would be if its country is being attacked for doing nothing wrong but dares to drink its own water. It is also wise to ask the parties who had been on the non-envious position of testing the Ethiopian army (the Italians, your grandparents, Esayas of Eritrea- even with your generous weapon, expert and resource support, Alshabab also the beneficiary of your evil generosity) are among the few.

  25. Ermi says:

    Mario…

    Yes, everyone has the right to live, and you can’t deprive them access to water. You know what that means? I guess not. Otherwise you wouldn’t support the surrender of Ethiopian only port, Assab.

    Your ignorance is so shameful that you need to quit playing a paid ciber agent for the woyane propoganda machine and go to school. You may better serve woyane after school if your thick head could soften and and absorbed some basic knowledge.

    Peace and love to all!

    • Solomon Tebebu says:

      @Ermi,
      I think you are off topic here. We are discussing a foreign threat to our country. Maybe you should wait for the right subject to come up to lambast Mario. You advocating for the enemy while trashing your own fellow citizen?

    • Tazabi! says:

      @Ermi,

      You are off topic here. We are discussing about a foreign threat made to our country. You should wait for the right subject to come up to lambast Mario.
      You’re advocating for Egypt while blasting your own fellow countryman?

  26. Kal says:

    No matter what ze situation in egypt we must be ready to defend Ethiopia especialy the defense must have a sophesticated arms and a ready made plan to defend and attack if egypt bites first.

  27. SAMRA says:

    The question we all have to ask is who is going to benefit from this dam even if it is built.
    It looks like only a handful Sew bellawoch Woyanes (dam propogandists) need to be put in check everywhere they go.

    It is the duty of any/all
    Ethiopians to stop this sew bela woyanes (dam propogandists) from reaching their goals of selling their own citizens like a commodity while they bury the money looted from Ethiopians in their backyard for their personal amusement.
    Ethiopia’s economy has been growing and the life of the masses had been geting worse not becauase we did not have a dam , the life of the people had been geting worse day by day because canibal woyanes are in power.

    The more power the Sew bellawoch Woyanes (dam propogandists) get,
    the worse they make the lives of the people.

    • Ermi says:

      Even if the dam is built, it will never be operational in the next 20 years. And if it starts generating power, then it will only be exported to Sudan and will benefit that country while Ethiopians will pick up the bill for its maintenance and financing fees. A good example is the Tekeze dam. it benefits no one. Woyane doesn’t even mention it for propaganda purpose. Why? because it was never a well thought project without any feasibility study done by anyone other than the Great leader himself in the dedbit bereha. The same is the case with the new Nile dam(a brain child of the mor-on woyane tug).

      Peace and love to all!
