honor comes among thieves
as Tegaru (people from Tigray region in Ethiopia) we are in the midst of a
struggle to deal with the new face of conflict that has emerged as ethnic
cleansing. The fear of ethnic violence or genocide in Ethiopia against
defenseless Tegaru constitutes a key concern for the responsible
international organizations to avoid a future catastrophic horror. What is
happening in Ethiopia against Tegaru is a tragedy that can be easily
International organizations have not yet expressed against the serious
vulnerability of Tegaru. Abiy so far has taken precautions to conceal and
mislead the social media, international community and Amnesty
International the deadly act of genocide at Mai-Kadra and blame the victim
Tegaru for the heinous attacks. Amnesty International was quick to blame
the victim of such horror and must retract the statement and contact the
survivors and witnesses of the massacre in the Sudan. Its baseless
assertion from the friend and so called Ethiopian human right commissioner
is totally false as he is part of the campaign and genocide against
defunct regime has not have any responsibility or moral obligation to free
Tegaru who are captive in concentration camps throughout Ethiopia and thus
we call on the international bodies to exert their pressure. Thus, we can
assure all people that no honor comes among thieves and demagogues. The
concern whether one looks at the current conflict from a political and
military viewpoint, Abiy’s rule has reached the end of its three years
stormy short-lived political career. So far over thirty thousand Tegaru
has moved to the Sudan and more than twice this figure has been displaced
within Tigray. Ethiopian societies have been torn apart and it might take
a generation to have a normal coexistence.
history is a lesson, the choice for peace means dealing with difficult,
even dangerous, and cruel leaders. The two state mongers of anti-Tegaru
culprits, i.e. Abiy and Isaias have engaged to dismantle and annihilate
the people of Tigrai, though this people has paid enormous sacrifices to
get rid of the previous dictatorial regime of Mengistu Hailemariam. Great
leaders have personal credibility, solidarity with the people they are
leading, and an ability to nurture the best in others, that is a leading
factor that TPLF has as an asset but Abiy have not or possess.
leadership despite their shortcomings, have the ability to work with their
people, own intellectual military genius, moral resources, well informed
and active combat force, having the upper hand as wise political leaders.
We call upon the International community, friends of Tegaru and Tegaru in
Diaspora to exposes the barbaric act of Abiy, the dying regime. Our
silence produces more evil, while the malicious act of this tragedy is
becoming a pleasure for the heartless and chauvinist Ethiopians.
urged all concerned Tegaru and friends of Tegaru to express their profound
call to the Red Cross, Amnesty International and Senators in their
respected states and countries. Our people’s live are in jeopardy and we
must stop the inhuman tragedy and slaughter of civilian Tegaru.
