Ethiopians will be Ethiopians!
It’s official, folks! Our life is in danger!!
There was another car bombing in Addis yesterday evening that killed three and wounded four. The government has, ofcourse, blamed OLF, ONLF & Eritrea for it. It ain’t the Somalis! It can never be the Somalis! Because the Somalis know we are there to liberate them! Just like the Iraqis knew the Americans were there to liberate them!!
Oh .. the dirty game people play!!
Anywho, what i found amusing (yes, life must go on! We gotta be able to be amused if, for no other reason, our faces don’t look too sour for our “genaZjoch”) was the way the news was discussed among my colleagues. Who kept using the term “bilGina new!” to describe the act. A term almost as comic and heart-breakingly naive as that guy who wept, on Police Program, “I can’t believe a man who calls himself ‘Ethiopian’ would do this” after either being robbed or mugged by somebody he trusted. Somebody, according to him, should be written-off as “tsegure Liwit” due to his un-“Ethiopian” act. The kind of childish innocense and a naïveté that not only makes you want to give these folks a hug (and a shoulder to cry bewildered frustrations on) but confirms a long held belief among my countrymen that all Ethiopians go to heaven! Has not Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven was for “of such”?! A belief, I’m sorry to say, we may need to hold onto more tightly now than ever not only because Earthly Kingdoms have always been in somebody else’s hand in our country’s case, but since we are likely to meet our maker any time now!!
Pray for us! Will ya?!
On the same token, Journalist/Writer Abreham Retta Alemu has died, according to Sheger FM, sometime yesterday morning. If you are an Addis Admass regular, you have come across his columns. Especially one that went by the title: “ALn, TeBaLn, AsBaLn”. Which, consequently, got turned into a book. It seems he’s been arrested for some article he wrote against someone/s important and even served time a few years back. Upon hearing from my colleague he may have still been in prison, I googled him. All I could come up with is this paragraph from INTERNATIONAL PEN, Writers in Prison Committee regarding his arrest. You’ll also find yahoo’s link to the bombing news herebelow!
Peace on Earth and Good Will toward All!
Boy, did those Angels knew what they were talking about!!
