Anti-Semitism has been in existence since the birth of Israel and the Jews people have been persecuted and repeatedly invaded through out history. However, it was Hitler who created a storm of Anthi-Semetic violence not only in Germany but inspired anti-Jewish movements throughout Europe and the world. Hitler and his followers regarded Jews as a subhuman race but as dangerous cancer that would destroy the German people, which have to be eradicated from the human race. In Nazi ideology the problems they perceive in Jews were considered to be biological and their elimination was essential to the purification and even to the salivation of the German people. Similarly the traces of Anti-Tigrayanism have been existing in Ethiopia and Eritrea for some time. The phrases like " Tigre Gedai", "Tigre Anbeta Kortami", " Komal Agame", "Kimalam Tigre", "Tigre Acid Eger ", "Deha Tigre" etc have been silently spoken within the society. Even though Mengistu Hailemariam had slip of tongue such as " Letemene yemihon genzeb enuka yelachewum" , "Dihoch yeminebalew bensu new" , "Yenat tut nekashoch" " Banda" , "Asgentai" etc, he was very careful not to create a full scale Anti-Tigrayanism sentiment in his time. However, Abiy from the day he openly lied and declared the 27 years of TPLF/EPRDF time was darkness until this time , he has been trying to create Anti-Tigrayanism sentiment through out the society using derogative words such as "Yeken jiboch", "Tsegure Liwit" , " Leboch" ," Cancer, " Weed" Enboch" and producing highly sensational several documentaries and speeches that were aimed to blakmail and demonize Tigrayans such as "the torturers were Tigrigna Tenagari" , " the killing was arranged by Tigringa tenagari Oromo", ' "the Tigrayan population attacked our army" etc... etc . Over all Abiy and his followers have been using full blown Anti-Tigrayanism that covers political, economic, religious, nationalistic and racial aspects as illustrated below:
Political Anti-Tigrayanism- Politically motivated collective permanent and temporary layoff of Tigrayans from government offices and organizations, demotions, targeted arrest , killings etc
Economic Anti-Tigrayanism: Blockage of banks, transport, communication, aid, famine as a weapon of war, closure of Tigrayan businesses for months with out any valid reason
Religious Anti-Tigrayanism: Worshipers of dragon( Zendo), Setan, Non-beleivers etc.
Nationalistic Anti-Tigrayanism: Ager Afrash, Kehadi, Banda, Yenat Tut Nekash etc
Racial Anti-Tigrayanism : Leboch, Cancer, Weed, Egire Acid( destructive), Yemaitamenu , ethinic profiling based arrest, rape,torture, and killing etc
As a conclusion I have attached an exemplary demonstration of the impact of Abiy's full blown and irresponsible Anti-Tigrayanism even on the thinking of small kids.
