Elias,
I do agree with you that ethnic slur is something to do away with. However, what happened in this forum lately is a premeditated coup if you will by the weyane agents such as Revelation and Semira to undermine the ongoing cooperation between Eritreans and Ethiopians against the weyanes. These scavengers wear colored hats and deflect any conversation against the weyane no matter what . They wear an extreme patriotic hat to disguise themselves and thereby gain confidence from the gullibles against their interest. Semira tells us that Eritreans need Ethiopians to topple the weyanes for Eritreans can not do it by themselves. Well, according to her/him, the relationship between Eritreans and Ethiopians against the weyanes only benefits Eritreans. If that was the case, then why cooperate ? Only a weyane would argue as such. From Eritreas' perspective, the departure of the weyanes is fine and dandy, but their existence will not necessarily hamper our progress with the right amount of presure to keep them on the hot seat anyway. The weyanes are the real obstacle to peace and prospertiy in the horn, and it is of necessity for all peace seeking agents to unite and fight against the weyanes and bring lasting peace among the people in the horn. BTW, the word [deleted] is the name of a region in which pride and poverty had been the mainstay for the people of that region. I do not believe they are offended by it.


Hail to liberty

Weyane's cruelty

Azeb,

A%game is an awraja (district) in the province of Tigray. The people who live in that awaraja are called A%games. It is a clan within the Tigray ethnic group. They are the poorest and most oppressed people in Ethiopia. On top of that, they are being insulted, maligned and looked down upon by some Ethiopians including Tigreans themselves just because they are poor. It is unfair to dehumanize these poor people for no good reason. They have done thing to us. Woyannes are our enemies, not the poor and downtrodden A%game ethnic group. None of the Woyanne top leadership is A%game. They are mostly from Adwa. Let's leave the poor people of A%game alone and instead work to quash Woyanne parasites.

Another thing I want to point out is that Woyannes seem to be ganging up on our Eritrean friends in this forum recently. They are desperately using every tactic to sow discord among Ethiopians and Eritreans, because they know all too well that cooperation between the two people means the end of Woyanne's dream of ruling Ethiopia for the next 50 years and creating Greater Tigray Republic. It is good to see that Eritreans are joining hands with Ethiopians in this forum and fight back the Woyanne cadres. Eritreans have done a wonderful job of rooting out tribalism from their country. We need to learn from them and root out tribalism from Ethiopia. No more Amhara, Oromo, Wolaita stuff. We'll build a united, strong Ethiopia on the ashes of Woyanne's tribal junta, and go on to create a commonwealth or confederation of East African states, with Isaias Afwerki as its first president.

Great post Elias. As always you know exactly how to turn the woyane's stomach. Nothing puts more fear in weyane than the propostions in this comment and the momentum you have built up with your recent interview with PIA and the continuing support you show for the said amalgamation.
Do you have a clue how many are running to change their man diapers right now? :lol:

Take a look at bashu, he's already reaching for his medicine cabinet.

Dear Elias, why in the world are you trying to deprive us from using the very word that defines Semira of Tigrai from head to toe so beautifully :x :roll:

Ethnic insults has been going on on your web page for a long time. It was brought to your attention many times and you chose to ignore it. Many of us pleaded with you and the moderators to stop this unhealthy practice quite a few times. What woke you up today? Is there a hidden agenda behind your newly found concern or did your mentor dictator Isayas instruct you to put a stop to it?

Why do you think people like me chose not to use the term Eritreans and instead focused on "Shabia"? It is because I chose not to lump the people of Eritrea for the actions of the [deleted] dictator of Eritrea . Why do you think that I never used the term @@gg@@ME to refer to the crimes of Meles and his gang? It is because I chose not to indite the people of Tegrai for the actions of Woyanne. Unfortunately, some members on this forum chose to label me a Woyanne because I wasn't radical enough in insulting the people of Tegrai.

Elias, I hope this is a genuine post on your part. If it is, my hats off for you.
