Meles Zenawi's Father vs Isaias Afework's Father on Ethiopia

Postby revelations » 29 Aug 2011, 09:04


While Meles Zenawi's (Legese Zenawi's) father was a known banda who served the invading Italian forces, Isaias' father had been a prominent member of the Andinet party that fought to reunite Eritrea with Ethiopia. Meles has carried on the family tradition of bandanet and working against Ethiopia while we can't say Isaias has followed in his father's foot steps!

Indeed, he is the enemy of Ethiopians and Ethiopia in a number of ways and there's no doubt as this is an individual who underestimated Ethiopian flag as a piece of rag, and who abounded that what is the symbolic meaning of Axum to Welayeta, and this is an individual that degraded the history of Ethiopia " Ethiopia has never have a history more than 100 year where the Amahras are the one that are claiming a 3000 year history" .....this is a guy who had preferred to be Tigrean than Ethiopian as he said that he is so happy that he is created from the golden people of tigray, and recently this is a guy that has insulted Aste Tewedros & Minilik as he is ashamed to be part of their history,.....many more.....

Eritreans were for unity. The question for revelations (the follower of the disgraceful hailu shawel who signed his way out of prison) is what did the governments in Addis do to push Eritreans away from unity and towards separation/ independence?

At least Isayas is punishing the Eritreans for wanting to seprate from Ethiopia, Meles wants Eritrea to remain separate. Meles can't be called a traitor because he has never been an ethiopian. You have to be an Ethiopian before you become a traitor.
