Toronto – Four same family members and a neighbor this week killed in Bahir Dar – the seat of the Amara regional state they were returning from mosque prayer after fasting prayers.  The attackers are reported to be “unidentified gunmen.”  

Amhara regional states have been linking recent attacks to what it calls “extremist force.”   It is a reference to Fano forces who are undertaking armed resistance across the region. 

The Bahir Dar attack came days after a series of grenade explosions in Finote Selam where dozens were reportedly wounded in a classroom and open-air marketplace.  Politicized Ethiopians who are active on social media platforms are linking the incidents in Bahir Dar and Finote Salam to the government. They see it as an attempt to divide people in the Amhara region to deny Fano forces ( “extremist force” as the government calls them) the popular support they are enjoying. 

Amhara Region Government Communication on Monday cited Sheik Jewuhar Muhammad – the region’s Islamic Affair Higher Council –  as saying ” The Muslim community should avoid being disturbed by attacks from the extremist force and seriously struggle against the extremist group.”  That was part of his holiday message for Eid-al-Fatir. 

The Amhara Region Islamic Affairs Higher Council has stated the tragic killing in Bahir Dar which happened on Sunday. 

“The attack targeting peaceful citizens, injustices and killings is intended to cause turmoil among our people who lived together in unity for ages,” it said. It called on the government, people in the region, followers of other religions, and religious leaders to do their part to reverse what is called worsening attacks against Muslims in the region. 

Highlighting cherished shared history and sacrifices paid together to defend Ethiopia, it said the conflict that has been active for more than eight months in the Amhara region has particularly harmed Muslims. The statement said over 80 were killed, tens of thousands displaced, 47 kidnapped and over 210 looted in the past eight months. 

The statement also listed attacks in the region this week. Based on the statement, couples were killed in Bichena on April 4 over paying tax to the government, four muslims were killed in Maksegnit Gondar on April 6 and a young man was killed in Mota after he was abducted and 300,000 Ethiopian birr was paid in ransom. 

Ethiopians who are advocating against the war in the Amhara region are pointing fingers at Abiy Ahmed’s government in connection with the killings of Muslims.  Unconfirmed reports are even emerging that Abiy Ahmed’s government has already deployed a killing squad in the Amhara region.

  1. Abichu: a polymath, the 21st century Renaissance man, the Ethiopian DaVinci, የስነምግባር ተምሳሌት እና የዕውቀት ፋኖስ Abichu: a polymath, the 21st century Renaissance man, the Ethiopian DaVinci, የስነምግባር ተምሳሌት እና የዕውቀት ፋኖስ

    The perpetrators of all these heinous crimes and murders in Ethiopia are well known : the oromumma cult mafia boss, Capocrimine, don abiy ahmed aka doctor, pastor, colonel, chairman of the repulsive prosperity party, in short የመሃይማን ኦሮሙማው ግብስብስ ሊቀ ደናቁርት አባ ገዳይ 7ኛ ጨ!!!

    This buffon, dejected, despondent, undisciplined, ill-fitted and unqualified as he is nothing but chaos to stay in his throne. The immoral, unethical and uncouth psychopath has nothing to offer Ethiopia and Ethiopians. With his oromumma sycophants, the tyrant STEALS, MURDERS, DISPLACES, DISPOSSESSES, DISENFRANCHISES MILLIONS AND MILLIONS.

    This imbecile is sitting on a ticking time turd of his own making in which he is besmirched from toe to head. With his unbearable stench of inhumanity, penchant for barbarism, and callous irresponsibility, he murders, corrupts and defiles everything he touches. Obsessed with his love for his throne, the boy-king thinks everything is expendable to satisfy his unquenchable lust for power and dominance over what he perceives as a threat to his ironclad grip to power- he is a sociopath and psychopath.

    For the past 6 years, all the crimes, mass murders, displacements and wars have been caused by none other than abiy the maniac.

    despot abiy ahmed RESIGN NOW VOLUNTARILY OR YOU WILL BE RESIGNING VERY SOON WHEN ALL your oromumma CHICKENS FINALLY COME HOME TO ROOST!!!

    Who is killing innocent Ethiopians left and right: abiy ahmed and his oromumma sycophants!!!!

  2. “”Highlighting cherished shared history and sacrifices paid together to defend Ethiopia, it said the conflict that has been active for more than eight months in the Amhara region has **particularly harmed Muslims. **The statement said over 80 were killed, tens of thousands displaced, 47 kidnapped and over 210 looted in the past eight months. “” Brkn
    ***Stop targeting Muslims and stop killing innocent civilians in the Amhara region (all are fellow Ethiopians regardless of their religious standing and ethnic background).***

    —— The Deranged Prosperity Party leader, Colonel Abiy Ahmed, must step down. —————————

  3. The meetings aren’t always pleasant and have at times become emotional, but in most interactions, the diplomats simply listen diligently, according to two sources who have been present for some of them. But they are coveted, and in many cases, easier for some diplomats to set up than for others.

    Ambassadors from larger countries, and those who have been in Washington for several years, are “”having an easier time tapping into Trump’s circle, compared to ambassadors who are new to DC, and those””” from smaller countries””, multiple diplomats said.

  4. If a conflict of religious dimension added to ethnicity one it would be catastrophic situation. Seemingly both sides are now playing with the fire ball Abiy’s evil regime employed this tactic first as every other precedent in the country showed . And seems mahara tempting they are probably losing twice since people dying are amaharas.
