The Grand #Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD).

A thread.
If you happen to look at the news in the last couple of weeks about it, you will find a lot.👇

For the casual reader, what these news articles Don't tell you WHY exactly #Egypt and #Ethiopia are locked in these bitter disagreements over the #Nile water use via the #GERD.
Quick background:

The #Nile river is shared by 11 countries. Of its total annual flow contribution, #Ethiopian rivers including #Abbay (Blue Nile) that #GERD is being built accounts 85% or ~77 Billion Cubic Meters (BCM). The rest of the Nile countries accounts ~15%.

#Tigray had it all. We had Ahmad ibn Ibrahim & the Ottoman Turks/The Egyptians, Italians, Menelik, Fascist Italy, Haile Selassie, Mengistu. But this genocidal war on #Tigray is incomparable to any that hitherto occurred. Its design, scope, intent, & the execution of action plans
defines its sadistic uniqueness. It was cataclysmic & is ongoing. They decided & came to eliminate #Tigrayans as people. Despite the incalculable sacrifices paid in lives lost, ethnic cleansing, genocidal rape, starvation, millions of IDPs, materials destroyed, in the end as
it has always been, our enemies have come back with unrevealed vengeance, the impact we will eventually notice & intent to rule the land of #Tigray. As things stand, they're back in, watched by #TEGARU they had tried & still desire to eliminate. Those who have not left are still

Somalis are appalled @ATMIS_Somalia allowed #Ethiopian army in #Baidoa to abuse the proud military #history of our @SNAForce by adoring and glorifying #SovietUnion alliance’s acts of aggression against #Somalia in #Karamardha as part of 1977-78 #WesternSomalia #Liberation War-1/4
These abhorrent antics are not only an affront to Somalia’s sovereignty, dignity and sensibility but are also against the Status of Mission Agreement #SOMA signed by @amisomsomalia. Article VI addresses conduct of #AMISOM and #ATMIS personnel who are required to always adhere to……
#Somalia must demand answers from @ATMIS_Somalia and @_AfricanUnion for #Ethiopia’s appalling violations of #SOMA. @MOFASomalia must also summon Ethiopia’s Ambassador and demand an apology from @mfaethiopia for the abuse of Somalia’s military #history and national sensibility-3/4

🧵on sidelocks פאות

1) The first question I always get when travelling in the West is why we grow long sidelocks?

The short answer is: it's not a fashion statement but rather an ancient Jewish tradition dating back at least 3,000 years

But there is much more to it...
2) The source for sidelocks in the Torah is in Leviticus 19:27

You shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard

לֹ֣א תַקִּ֔פוּ פְּאַ֖ת רֹאשְׁכֶ֑ם וְלֹ֣א תַשְׁחִ֔ית אֵ֖ת פְּאַ֥ת זְקָנֶֽךָ
3) The Mishna and Talmud discussed various opinions as to the definition of the "corner of the head"

The rationale was to differentiate from idol worshippers who shaved the side of their heads at the time

Yemeni and Hassidic Jews would let their sidelocks grow particularly long

November 20 in the #History of #Eritrea.
1. On Nov. 20 1989, #EPLF & the #Ethiopian gov/Derg began peace talks in #Nairobi, #Kenya under the auspices of @CarterCenter & by the invitation of President Arap Moi of Kenya. The peace talks lasted until November 29.
2. At Nairobi Peace talks, they agreed on 3 issues that weren't agreed upon in #Atlanta, cleared the way for substantive negotiations, agreed to invite ex #Tanzanian Pres. Nyerere to be co-host wz Carter during the main talks & the 2 agreed to choose the sec & support staff.
3. The most difficult issue that the Parties discussed & finally agreed was "who would serve as int'l observer" during the main talks. 7 observers, 2 by each Party & 3 by mutual consent. #Kenya, #Sudan, #Tanzania, #OAU, #Zimbabwe & #Senegal were invited & accepted the invitation

#Tigray negotiators Getachew and Tsadkan gave a media interview in Tigrinya on the negotiations tonight. They give the following highlights:
1. The key motive for signing the Cessation of Hostilities agreement was to stop the worsening of the humanitarian crisis in Tigray.
2. While it was necessary to sign the agreement, TDF can and will not disarm unless the security of the people of #Tigray is reliably guaranteed.
3. #Tigray will in any case continue peacefully to pursue the quest to amend the terms of the agreement, specifically those that are unfavourable to the people of Tigray

Since the signature of permanent cessation of hostilities in Pretoria by the #Ethiopian Govt and #TPLF/ #EDF // #GovtofTigray (1 if them, or either 1 of them, or all of them or none of them), there has been a continuous concerted effort by elements against peace, particularly.. the Tegarus camp in diaspora (and not only), and within the so-called analysts, journos n anti-🇪🇷 elements, to spread a narrative that #Eritrea is inside Tigray, going deeper, occupying territories n committing all sort of crimes.
All without a single tangible proof...
..Just accusations, allegations, innuendos, and a continuation of fake news aimed principally at making sure the peace accord doesn't go ahead.
The idea of having to disarm n dissolve as a paramilitary force, to be still part of #Ethiopia, to relinquish the dream of being..

Revealing the horrific Saudi massacres of African migrants on the Saudi-Yemeni border
Al Masirah TV showed pictures of a mass grave containing dozens of African victims who were killed by Saudi border guards.
The scenes show that the Saudi border guards liquidated
dozens of Ethiopian immigrants, and photographed them... moments before their execution.
The channel quoted African survivors of the massacre as saying that the #Saudi soldiers deliberately electrocuted dozens of #Ethiopian migrants in a room in which they were gathered.
#Ethiopian immigrants confirmed that the Saudi border guards kill about 5 migrants daily at the border and injure many of them.
Last July, the International Organization for Migration confirmed that Saudi forces had committed nine massacres against migrants on the Yemeni

1/ Militarily, TPLF looks finished; at least as a conventional fighting force. At least for the time being. Its ranks decimated, its fighters demoralized and its popular support at an all time low.
2/ In reality, #TPLF has nothing in its hands to bargain with, other than the threat of future insurgency. At this point in time, the only bargaining chip it has is the support of the USG.
3/ The US is in the talks not only to 'observe' but also 'particiapte', as per @StateDeptSpox Ned Price.

Being Nilotic (Dark skin) in #Ethiopia

Growing up in #Gambella, I have always been curious about the second-class citizen treatment the #Anuak people have always faced. We were never seen or treated equally with the rest of lighter skinned highlanders. The same thing could be 1/

You are a foreigner and you are looking for ways to support #Ethiopia and #Ethiopian people? Here's a list of actions that you can take and avoid.
1. Are you an academic, researcher, or think tank who tangentially works on #Ethiopia? Are you being asked to comment on the situation and give your take for media or speaking engagements? Politely decline and recommend an expert, preferably #Ethiopian
2. N.B. Avoid recommending and being a problematic old white dude. This applies to everything in life, but especially in this situation. @martinplaut especially you!
