    The P.S. was for Rezen. I don’t know if comments are monitored here, but some of the comments I penned seem to not make it. Wish someone can enlighten me what the dos and don’ts are that guide this forum so I can follow assenna policies.

    • amanuel May 25, 2018

      It seems there is no moderator in assenna. You can harras and insult comentators (may be except amanuel) as you wish and it will not be blocked.

  • Beyan Negash May 25, 2018

    Thank you amanuel. Some comments tend to be intermittently blocked. Edna appears to be facing similar issues as I was. I was just trying to figure it out what it is I was doing wrong and I may have inadvertently been transgressing posting guidelines.

    Again, many thanks for your feedback on this.

    Have you heard Issaias’ speech? I was watching the recent speech of the new Ethiopian PM Abiy to young Ethiopians at Millennium Hall Addis Ababa this week. He said the Saudis and the Gulf Arabs are asking to give us money and support that we never asked them for, what I had asked them was to treat our people fairly and free them from the Arab prisons
    Do you know how much Arabs respect to people who respect their own languages, identity, ancestors and heritage? The Ethiopians, Iranians, Turkish, Americans, British, Germans, Russians, Japanese, Chinese … all respect their own languages and identity; they never ever burned their own languages to replace it by alien identity nor are they self hating people, as a result every Arab leader and nation respects them.
    Clear your eyes now and tell me how the Arabs treat self-hating and language burning slaves and Abeeds such as Omar al Bashir, Issaias Afeworki and the worthless Jebha leaders with fossilized brains.
    If one does not respect who he is, his own languages, identity and millennial history, he lives in delusional hypocrisy all his life to become a copycat of his disrespectful masters.
    Issaias and the servant Jebha elites should have known long ago that an Arab comes to your house to belittle your languages, burn your identity, snatch your kidney, enslave your sister and sell you to slavery. Every Arab slave Abeed knows this fact, including Omar al Bashir and the bankrupt self haters and language burners. See them below bark to protect the honour of their masters. such is the fate of slaves who disown themselves.

      As much as ethiopians want to not see weyane any where, dr. Abiy is under weyanes control. If he wants to do deep reforms, not sure if that suffice the desire of ethiopians, he will need to dismantle the secret services, security and remove the officers of the defense forces. That is long way and he is not moving fast. Ethiopians are tired of guhilatat weyane the same way that we are of hgdf guhilatat.

      What is that got to do with us Edna,I think you need to change your URL.

  • amanuel May 26, 2018

    • k.tewolde May 27, 2018

      He googled it and he asked his aid,’how do you pronounce that?”

        I think this is an automated message that the US sends to every country (except for very few) every year. Meskeremnet and HGDF trying to make it big deal.
        BTW, that useless owner of meskerem, didn’t even bother to post Tsehaitu Beraki’s death. Shameful person.
