    Which is good to participate in world forum. But y don’t u focus on current and national issues? Like
    A The Oromo students demo
    B The Ethio-Sudan boundary /now it’s in final stage/ Sudanise are announced in media.
    C. Now Badme is in promise to Eritrea. HD. officially regreats of deportation and the 1998 war to Eritrean opposition. With out public even parlament discussion. So it’s not good sign for the current situation in Ethiopia.
    Probably Amhara of Sudan, Tigreans of Badme will join to destruction Master Plan. So
    EPRDF is not trusted that much to national issue.
    Shoud revealed officially for public discussion as democratic.
    To give more attention to demostic oppossions than Eritreans for discussion.
    Unless has to stay away untill other GVT replaced. Even Morsi was discussed with oppositions according to national issue. Mr Dawit do your part as a nationalist nor. FREE press journalist. God bless Ethiopia.

    To show the Ethiopian people we care.

  4. hermi says:

    Over all good job by our PM and the panelists. The testimony by the participants about Ethiopia is the result of his leadership and of his organization. I wished he could have elaborated why technology if not used appropriately to enhance the life of the ordinary people can have untoward consequences. I am sure the likes of ESAT and Co will have a field day twisting his “technology terifies me” comment.
    It is events like this that I miss Meles more. RIP our hero.

  7. us with us for us says:

    Before anything else big congratulation to China and Iran for signing the biggest and most important economic and…. agreements ever happened between two separate nations in Human history. These two ancient, giant, respectful, innocent, strong, useful, proud, determine and civilized nations signed the agreements worth more than $600 billion Dollar. This is the biggest ever happened between two states after China and Russia did similar agreements at the end of 2014 worth more than $400 billion. That means China’s economic relationship with Iran and Russia worth more than $1 trillion. China also signed last year agreements with Brazil worth $50 billion and $100s of billions with other so called developing/none white nations.

    When we include the economic and … agreements between Russia and Iran, the cooperation between the three great, very important, useful, respectful, responsible and the savior of humanity and earth nations i.e. China, Russia and Iran, the volume is reaching more than $1.3 trillion.

    Now we have to really stop, get calm, take deep breath, ask the right and important questions and make our brain work/function as normal and competent human beings do finding the right answers. Where is the good intention? Where is the solution? Where is the money? Where are the benefits to acquire? Where is the respect? In general where is the new and useful knowledge, the future of the development engines, friendly approaches, genuine talks and approaches and so on? For sure, it is in the above mentioned nations and others in the east and elsewhere that are not intentionally infected, badly affected and deadly overtaken by the slavery, colonization, occupation, looting, exploitation, war, destruction and each and every evil behavior and activity responsible criminal doctrine imperialist establishment nations in the North/west.

    Brave leaders and people would perfectly know who is who among foreign states and would choose without any hesitation those benefiting them while keeping away the known evils that are the root cause of all setbacks, sufferings, destructions, killings, poverty, diseases and so on for the last 500 years. Their so called cooperation, development assistance and whatever agreement they are talking about is working only for them while spreading corruptions, creating divisions, conflicts and (civil) wars within and neighboring nations with goal corruption, divisions, weaknesses, poverty, under developments and destructions become their best weapons and way of controlling that nation and all the benefits go only to them.

    This so called world economic forum is part of an IMF, WB, WTO and other imperialists jokes they are trying to use them for their benefits against the rest of the world. This is a Zionist/Jews project as IMF, WB, WTO and so on are already overtaken by them. There are more than 210 nations. 46 nations being participated in the forum is nothing but it is a failed organization.

    Brave leaders and citizens will do the right things for their benefits always looking and approaching those are good to them. There is no one but China, Russia, Even India (despite some individuals are still mentally suffering as if they are still under the little English empire colonization serving them as slaves), East Asia, Among Africans and so on, not the Zionists/Jews lead west particularly Tiny England, USA, Canada and so on including South Africa. All troubles coming from abroad against Ethiopia are created, developed and orchestrated from the base in London, New York, Washington and so on including France, Benelux, Norway and south Africa where the Jews/Zionists and English establishments are in control.

    Do we really think we can get any benefit including peace by having these people around let alone giving them spaces in the country to move freely in the name of anything such as aid, NGO, media, Journalism, Volunteers, peace core, missionaries and those using tourism and investment for bad reasons.? We need to learn mandarin, Russians and so on from the young age at school in order to learn and get new and useful knowledge, experience and skills from them.

    We don’t need to learn English to use it for communications but mandarin, Russians and so on to learn and get new and useful knowledge, skills and experiences. Those new and useful knowledge, skills and experiences are not in England or elsewhere but for sure in the east and other places. For that reason, we don’t need to learn English anymore but other languages such as mandarin and Russians in order to learn and get useful and good things from them.

    The imperialists are not to help developing and benefits others particularly Africans but as usual they are coming around to create conflicts, dump their health frisky and useless products, opening health risky and environmental unfriendly businesses and companies such as MC Donald, Coca cola, Monsanto, tobacco companies such as BAT and so on that make them able easily to loot lots, exploit, create divisions, hostilities, wars, destructions and of course the worst of all are their pure criminal financial systems such as their banks and hedge and equity funds.

    The solution is known, clear and has no other options but be yourself, smart, determine, strong and hard working together as a nation. And the same times intensifying and developing the best relationships with useful, respectful, genuine and strong nations like china, Russia, within Africa and many more while fighting back and totally avoiding the Zionists/Jews and English establishment well planned and executed agenda and plan on us with goal to damage us in many ways.

    They are using all tricks and criminal activities in order to destroy the good investment environment in the country. We know who is behind each and every unrests and setback in the country particularly since 2012(after the brave Meles’s death thinking PM Hailemariam is weak and easily manipulated); creating so called semayawi party, wahabbi unrests, so called bloggers( the current white house chef Zionists Soros dogs), so called activists and currently in the name of Oromo. We also know, they are using all tricks to stop china from Africa targeting Ethiopia because of Ethiopia has the longest and strongest relationship with China and the AU is in Ethiopia. In order to destroy Africa, they are using all satanic activities to affect Ethiopia because of including AU (where its head quarters building that was built and freely given by china) is there.

    As long as Ethiopia is not totally free from the Zionists/Jews and the Tiny English establishment all out campaign to affect our country in many ways, be sure, nothing good will be seen in the Ethiopian soil. These two are the root causes of all evilness and setbacks happened in the world for the last 500 years including Africa and black people.

    Look at how blacks are living in their own country which is USA and elsewhere where these two are in charge. Yet, they are coming to Africa telling blacks they are there to benefit. And the dump monkey head blacks do believe and follow them in their own country when they are taking them to hell as usual. Be free from these….first in order to function as a nation and get real benefits and peaceful life as normal human/society does.

    Again, congratulation to China and Iran for signing the biggest ever co operation agreement between two separate nations worth more than $600 billion. This shows where the money is, benefits, respects, right things, willingness and futures are and that is in the East where the sun rises in order to come to Africa.

    WEF is another joke like their Zionists owned criminal corporate Medias and so called journalists (spy agents and mercenaries) they are using it for their advantages.

      Is there any one who can paraphrase it . I cannot get the relevance and significance of the article .
      Sorry for that .

    • bezawit says:

      It is good to have a healthy mistrust in established global system. But from your articles I am sensing unhealthy paranoia. I myself used to subscribe to “out there” conspiracy theories and I used to be happy, you know why? Because the world stopped being complex, all of a sudden the world became simple, easy “Us versus them” evil/ good, mindsets I loved it! And it fuelled up my intellectual laziness as well, why make an effort to analyse a complex system while I can fix myself with fast food theories. Finally I found an outlet for my life’s frustration, for not achieving what I set out to do, blame it on “xyz”. Back then I reasoned “if it isn’t for them, “I would have….” . Yeah, I was happy alright, for a while.

      That is why cult movements are attractive, it limits your reality, gives you peace from the complexity of nature or the system.

      The dangers of subscribing to such theory is that it doesn’t stop there! It permeates your relationship to others, you develop toxic tumor mistrust, paranoia with your every day to day interaction. One day you find yourself doubting your closest people, it affects your whole reality, it is a very limiting place to be.

      While I enjoy reading your literature and sometime I find them educational, I also find myself doubting if you have a good grip on reality. Nature doesn’t evaluate things as good or evil, nature judge things as balanced or unbalanced. If anything is unbalanced, it becomes toxic. Most of the time poison is a medicine in high dosage.

  8. us with us for us says:

    World economic forum is created to facilitate the Globalization of Goods, services and people from the imperialists Rich/North to the poor/south. People in the south don’t have the same rights to travel or move to the North/west for the same reasons the west/north are using to come in the south/Africa let alone their product that is not yet in the position to satisfy even domestic, regional or continental consumers.

    WEF is not different from UN, IMF, WB, WTO and so on that are here with us in the name of the world or international but created, controlled and run by the same people for their own benefits.

    UN is created 70 years ago during the time when all nations in Africa and others elsewhere were under colony. Today’s world is too different and big than it was 70 years ago. yet, UN is still functioning based on the principles and rules from 70 years ago where tiny countries like England are continuing being the permanent members of UN while big nations like India, Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Nigeria and so on are not. UN that is not allowing democratic changes within itself based on the facts and realities in the 21-century world is talking selectively lots about democracy, election, human rights, rule of law and so on among its so called third world member nations.

    It is the same with IMF and World Bank, too. These two are created 70 years ago with goal to build Europe that was destroyed by the war. Today’s world economy, knowledge, potential and future is not the same or concentrated at same locations/regions as it was the case back then but all over the world including China, India and so on. Yet, IMF and WB are still functioning based on the 70 years old rules and principles while acting in the name of the world. IMF and WB are under US and EU control. This is not secret but a reality including today.

    WEF is not different from others but standing for the same thing with different name. WEF will achieve something only when it stands and works including for the Globalization of people instead of only goods and services based on the few benefits. People from the south including Africa must get equal rights and treatments travelling or moving to the west ( and get respectful treatments and opportunities as westerners are in Africa) for reasons the west/North are using them to come to Africa with or without visa based on the agreements between nations.

    However, Africans don’t have the same rights to travel for visits or move for business or job reasons. They are rejecting visa requests repeatedly (loosing lots of money, time and emotions in the process) despite the applicants are peaceful, genuine and fulfilling the requirements. The reasons could be …

    So, WEF that is working for the Globalization of Goods and services will not succeed its goals but soon will become irrelevant as long as it is not giving priorities for the Globalization of people from the South including Africa instead of only from the North/west to the rest of the world.

    Dear Dawit, so now you have become officially Woyane Shabia piece mouth? Why you do not tell us why the Shabia woyane is giving our land to Sudan? This shows or proves Woyane Shabia is a human cancer in Ethiopia? The Shabia woyane landlocked us by gun, then the shabia woyane betrayed 1 00 000 Ethiopians during the Shabia war and dragged to Ethiopia to Europe and signed EEBC , and Alger’s agreement and gave badme. The cancer, evil, weird, bizzare, terrorist Shabia woyane did not stop there. The terrorist woyane Shabia has been terrorizing Ethiopians for 24 years now plus 44 years of terrorizing Tigreans? The cursed, evil, terrorist woyane has been dragging Ethiopia to Egypt to beg our own water blue Nile? Not only that, the terrorist woyane is taking land by force and selliing it at a price higher than anywhere on the planet earth by throwing people away from their land and making them homeless? The woyane Shabia, a curse in Ethiopian history is also ready to sign agreement with Egypt agreeing not to touch the water of the blue Nile and denying not only this generation of Ethiopians their right to use the water, but also denying and violating the rights of unborn Ethiopians. The woyane Shabia is shooting Ethiopian by live bullet from 1991 until today. Not only that, the woyane Shabia is giving land of the 100 million people of Ethiopians to Sudan in secret? Dawit? Dawit? because you were treated badly by diaspora chauvinists, you do not have to sleep in bed with the mot terrorist woyane that has been terrorizing Ethiopians for 44 years. It is better you leave the country or die than sleeping in bed with the most traitor regime in Ethiopian history. Dawit? Dawit? what are you doing about the handing of land to Sudan by woyane? Are you going to keep quiet? Come on Dawit, the evil and terrorist woyane landlocked us by gun and our poor people has to be forced to buy ports from Sudan, Kenya, Djibouti, Somalia,… and our people are starving to death while we spend around 2 billion dollars each year to buy ports? Come on Dawit, Come Dawit, … it is better to die for Ethiopia Territorial integrity than to sleep with the terrorist Woyane Shabia who is handing our land to Sudan. My question to Woyane Shabia is one. Woyane Shabia what do you want from the Ethiopian people? You landlocked them by gun? you betrayed them in the war field? you signed EEBC , Alger’s agreement in their name? You have been shooting Ethiopians by live bullet? you have given badme even away? Now you are dragging Ethiopia to Egypt and itching your fingers to sign another betrayal? Now you are giving land to Sudan? Woyane Shabia, evil, cursed, terrorist never ever seen on our planet so far, what the hell do you want from the Ethiopians people? Woyane Shabia, you spent 17 years in the caves of Tigrai to do all these dirty business in the name of Ethiopia? Hey Dawit, Woyane is a curse, evil, sinister, cynical, traitor of all time never seen in the entire Ethiopian history. Woyane aka TPLF what the hell do you want from the poor Ethiopian people? why are selling land like there is no tomorrow as if you are going to leave the country? Woyane you are human cancer, human snakes. I have never even read in human history as cancer as you woyane. Woyane you are cancer of Ethiopians people. You have been bleeding, betraying Ethiopians for 44 years now. Woyane, what the hell do you want ? what are you going to do after giving land to Sudan and give Blue Nile to Egypt? what the hell do you want evil, cursed, cynical, sinister woyane? Oh my God, what a disgrace and snake people Ethiopia has got at the end?

    EBC news did say $60 billion instead of $600 billion. The difference is $540 billion. What is wrong with this amateurs and carless….. They need to get the life time rest because of they are worthless.


    This is the truth:

    “Iran’s leader says never trusted the West, seeks closer ties with China

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday called for closer economic and security ties with China, saying Iran had never trusted the West, as the two countries agreed to increase bilateral trade more than 10-fold to $600 billion in the next decade.

    Iran’s most powerful figure told Chinese President Xi Jinping during a visit Iran wanted to expand ties with “more independent countries”, adding the United States was “not honest” in the fight against terrorism in the region.

    “Iranians never trusted the West… That’s why Tehran seeks cooperation with more independent countries (like China),” Khamenei said…….”
