Somalis are affronted by the abhorrent agenda of #Amhara agitators who are attempting to rewrite our ancestors’ #history. As an ardent #PanSomalist whose adamantly against any agenda of #Abyssinians I’d like to address revisionism of our history by Amharas with amble evidence-1/9
From 1529 to 1543 #Somali ruler from #Adal empire named Ahmed #Gurey aka Ahmed #Gran annihilated #Amhara army after many assaults. Ahmed also roamed freely across #Abyssinia for almost two decades and pillaged at will. Ashamedly #Amhara emperor Lebna Dengel run away as coward-2/9
As anticipated emperor #Dengel asked military aid from his #Portuguese ally as he wasn’t able to face Somalis alone. This will become a familiar theme for #Amharas who are actually accustomed to begging military aid from foreign allies against Somalis for almost six centuries-3/9

Well now, if you read about what the western puppets and #TPLFTerroristGroup supporters are writing, you'll notice a shift to Wolkait & focus against #Eritrea and #Amhara. Just like they attempt to break apart the #NoMore movement, now the attempt is to separate #Amhara from 1/3
#Ethiopia. They have already been working to create wages between @AbiyAhmedAli & #Amhara by pretending to be #Amhara & spreading poison. Now, they are accusing #Amhara of atrocities in Axum stating the "Claim on western Tigray is for the purpose of Genocide" The west has not 2/3
changed a bit. #Ethiopians need to understand the plot, be wise, be united, & plan for a long-term fight to change the game against the enemy. It is time to save the poor in Tigray from the vicious enemies working day & night to turn it into a currency in the new conflict. 3/3

1. "... Certainly the agreement calls for the withdrawal of, as you pointed out, not only Eritrean forces but Amhara special forces and Afar militia that are currently in Tigray......."
Can the US, TPLF, TAC,TDF,TR,PP,OPP,PP,APP all ...…
2. please explain what your 'Tigray' reference mean? We ask because in Pretoria, all parties agreed to solve contested areas as per the constitution, that gives indication you're lumping those places in your definition. But just in case please explain!And if Pretoria & Nairobi
3. is an attempt to Segway into total takeover by TPLF, then you just don't understand you knowingly or unknowingly brokered a deal that signed continued genocide in these areas, the only sliver lining is of course these people will NEVER go under TPLF.

1/: My initial reflections on the #Tigray - #Ethiopia #peaceagreement. First, it is commendable that the parties have reached an agreement. Admittedly, this was surprising. One should sincerely hope that the agreement will pave the way for durable peace.
2/: However, the #Tigray - #Ethiopia #peaceagreement circulating (still not in signed version) leaves many questions unanswered. Although the parties have committed themselves not to question any part of the agreement, it obligates us analysts to point out some issues of concern.
2b/: A huge disclaimer here: there is confusion on which text of the agreement is authentic. The agreement I base my points on is confirmed by several internationals as authentic, but we have to wait for the full signed version to appear before one can conclude on that.

1/ @DrTedros, recently accused the 'IC' of being racist for paying more attention to #Ukraine.

We (@Qnie_Addis & @Kings_of_Nile) analysed his tweets, RTs & likes starting from Oct 2021. Given his pronouncements, what we found was quite revealing.
2/ When you pay close attention to his Twitter activity, despite his protestations, #Tigray predominate his TL. He sometimes tweets, RTs or likes up to 8 Tigray related tweets per day! He has tweeted, RTd or liked tweets mentioning Tigray 208 times over the past 23 months!
3/ What about #Yemen you ask? And #Syria? Surely, the man who claims to be the conscience of the world would tweet incessantly about these humanitarian crises that had been raging for years. Nope! In reality, they are occasionally invoked only to accompany #Ukraine and Tigray.

I cannot wait until the English version of @AAA_Amhara's report regarding the recent #AgamssaMassacre in Oromo Region comes out. @MikeHammerUSA, I can assure you, what happens in the West of Ethiopia will scar humanity for millennia to come! 1/
Anyone who calls themselves a human rights defender should help us now, before the absolutely cornered people collectively start retaliating! Which they will! A glimmer of self-defense is reported even here, I mean, what would you do if you hear that a daughter is forced 2 see 2/
her father being beheaded with a sword right in front of her! You can find the report @GPEthiopia issued regarding the dangerous disinformation that tried to blame the victims, and dub those who defended themselves as 'Fanos who came from elsewhere' 3/

It is time for serious scrutiny of the @WHO Director-General @drtedros's role in the war in #Ethiopia.

During the past year, he has increasingly distorted the realities of the conflict to suit his personal interests.

Read on for our fact-checking record 👇
Content posted to @DrTedros's social media channels and @WHO social media channels suggest political intent.

We have correlated the promotion of #Tigray vs #Afar & #Amhara content on these channels below:
An analysis of Dr Tedros's public comments since Nov 2020 shows he has not once referenced suffering in #Afar & #Amhara.

This is at a time when @UNHumanRights describes the Afar situation as “dire with alarming levels of food insecurity and malnutrition.”

The plea of a dying Amhara girl in the Wollega massacre!
"I won't be an #Amhara ever again" she pleaded to her killers but her plea was lost in vain.
A survivor's testimony!
"I found myself in a pile of corpses. I looked up and saw a girl (approximately 6 years old)
surrounded by six gunmen. Although I was there, they did not notice me because they considered me one of the corpses."

They talk to the baby in Amharic;
Then they all laughed until their voices echoed in the abyss.
Finally, I heard the baby say this out loud
"I will not be an Amhara ever again."
She pleaded with them.

The next thing I heard was a gunshot. All of a sudden, bullets rained down on her stunning body. They did not even seem to be satisfied with her death.

This video shows how Dr @AbiyAhmedAli discusses the idea of demography. This discussion was made one year before his election to the premier position. At this moment He was unknown to many in the politics of Ethiopia.
In the video, Dr @AbiyAhmedAli 's super hate towards #Amhara was shown.

For Long OLFites and Jawarian were known to call #Amhara residents who were relocated by the Derg regime relocation program in Oromia as settlers, newcomers, and strangers.
But Dr @AbiyAhmedAli franchised this hate one step more.
Dr. Abiy said in this discussion
"We gave land to Amhara teachers and investors. We change the demography by ourselves. Then if you don't think such a gesture wouldn't change the demography? He said, "think 3 times."

The security detail of Wollega massacre!
The massacre started early in the morning around 8:30 am local time & continued for about seven hours late in the afternoon.

During these hours no security personnel is available in the area.

Amhara residents made a life-saving call.
The perpetrators did all that they seek in that area and left to the nearest localities.

The massacre survivors indicated the security forces arrived after the OLF_Shene left the area.

Not a single individual was saved.

Recently Dr @AbiyAhmedAli claimed on national TV that
His administration is building a state-of-the-art facility for ENDF, Artificial intelligence, INSA, and the police force which can be able to respond to not only internal but international threats.

Yet for seven hours these forces were never to be seen in the Wollega massacre.

❗Thread 1/10
Here is why I believe the very large part of #Amhara/#Ethiopia political, religious media, academic, business, art elites continue to be a cause for innocent Amharas getting slaughtered all over #Ethiopia.

It starts with their toxic & dangerous politics.
❗Thread 2/10
Their toxic rhetoric, their idiotic alliances with elements, who're dangers to #Amhara people like #IsaiasAfwerki & @AbiyAhmedAli their unending love & nostalgia of medieval times kings & princes earned the #Amhara people enemies across #Ethiopia & made it a target
❗Thread 3/10
Its political "leaders" organize lawless bandits like 'Fano', and send them to all directions to wreck havoc on peoples of #Tigray #Gumuz #Oromia and made the people friend-less, ally-less and made #Amhara people target of unending attack.

We #Amhara ppl love #Ethiopia more than any other but unfortunately fake Ethiopianists hide among us & serve injustice to all #Ethiopians. There is nothing special #Amharas received in the last 5 decades. In fact, we get the opposite which is hatred & #AmharaGenocide! Now we 🤔 ImageImage
Being an #Amhara nationalist has nothing to do with separatism. Our grievances are being ignored & this undeniable fact is the main reason why #Ethiopia is going through this endless cycle of civil war. Fake Ethiopianists & extreme nationalists are the cancers of #Ethiopia 💚💛❤️ ImageImage
#Amhara ppl have not had APPROPRIATE political representation for 5 decades, have been falsely identified as targets of oppression hence HATE & #AmharaGenocide, were ACTIVELY fighting for minority rights & equality during the student movement in the late ‘60s WITHOUT any credit! ImageImage

Dozens of soldiers encircled a severely injured young man (maybe a teenager ) , they keep on beating him ,taunting him telling him to smile while destroying his face , some are comfortably recording on their phone
lots of slur
“don’t kill him yet ,we want them to suffer first “
“no they don’t die that easy , almost all of the once we left for dead got up “.
There was a local girl (about 10 or 12 yr. old ) in the crowd ,the soldiers were encouraging her to stone the boy and she does .

#BloodyWinter: winter is coming to Ethiopia and it is going to be bloody

1/ In 2-3 months the rainy season will be upon Ethiopia. I am hoping against hope that I am wrong, but I am afraid it is going to be the bloodiest winter in our history!
2/ It appears, both #TPLF & its backers have given up their hope of bringing #TPLF back to power & have settled for an independent #Tigray to serve as their #HOA proxy to disrupt the region. The catch: An independent #Tigray can not be realized without #Welkait.
3/ #TPLF is using this respite to appease the populace severely affected by food shortage and the terrible cost of the loss from the previous campaign in terms of human life and replenish its dwindling supply to feed its army.

A Fano is a member of a non-political, non-religious community self-defense movement constituted out of ordinary citizens from all walks of life, religion, sex, age etc. - at times of organized attack. The name also applies to a group of Fanos. 1/5
Their most recent action was against #TPLF invasion of Amhara lands, looting, rape, and destruction between Summer and Fall of 2021.

In the past, they resisted Italian invasions, and past attacks by the then #TPLF-controlled Ethiopian Government for the 27 years until 2018. 2/5
Their resistance was re-invigorated after the botched abduction of the leader of the Wolkait-Tegede-Telemt Amhara Identity Advocacy Committee, Col. Demeke Zewdu (now vice governor of Wolkaite) in Gonder, which led to #TPLF downfall, coupled to the Oromo youth movement. 3/5

#HR6600: Promising Blood, Tears and More Blood for Ethiopia

1/ Engineered by #DrEvil, powered by @PowerUSAID, introduced by @RepMalinowski and financed by the pro_TPLF diaspora, #HR6600 promises to inaugurate a decade of bloodshed, starvation and instability in the HoA.
2/ @StateDept supported TPLF up until the last moment with the hope TPLF will come back to power. With their dreams dashed, it seems they came to the conclusion that their best bet is to work with the GOE. The ambassador was replaced & @PowerUSAID's seems to have been sidelined.
3/ Now, @DrTedros & @PowerUSAID are spearheading a change in strategy. The new strategy is all about twisting the arm of @StateDept through bills passed by the Senate or Congress.

To War, or Not to Be: Why #TPLF will ALWAYS choose war

1/TPLF backed by formidable western allies failed to deliver Addis and apparently lost their unqualified support. With thousands sacrificed with nothing show in return, TPLF is stuck between a rock & a hard place.
2/ TPLF knows it can only survive if there is active conflict. Without war keeping the populace in a state of near constant fear and paranoia will be nigh impossible. This makes the prospect of ordinary Tigrayans showing their discontent, a very real possibility.
3/ With that in mind TPLF will do all it can to keep the war going. After another round of conscription TPLF has been getting ready to launch an all out attack against #Afar and #Amhara.

2/ @walta_info, @ebczena and @fanatelevision tweeted ONLY 12k, 16k and 22k times respectively over the past DECADE!
3/ All the news and documentaries about atrocities committed by the #TPLF in #Afar and #Amhara have not been made available in English. Video evidence of the numerous misdeeds of TPLF over the past 3 decades are not publicly available.
