  1. frightening . One day this criminals weill succeeed doing thier dirty and inhumane act of genocide.

    God save the poor and innocent people from the hands of killers who claim they are religious .

  2. brought by amhara elites sponsors of shibera

    yes you told them what that donot want to hear. they are ethnopathtic, and megalomaniac definition= an unnaturally strong wish for power and control, or the belief that you are very much more important and powerful than you really are.

    Amhara elites like mike , abiy bastard, and others are agressive and pyschologists say agressive people need more space than other. Amhara is saying every land that amharic langauage is spoken is my land.

    They piss everywhere and they claim it is my own terrritory exactly like animals.
