  1. Who are ONLF representing? the simple answer is one clan. There are 15 clans in Somali Region who are not interested to secede from Ethiopia. The former Somali Regime dictator, Said Baree had created ONLF. He formed in 1984 after he destroyed WSLF, simply they were not interested in ” Greater Somalia”. He killed more than 80 Western Somali Liberation Front commanders in 1978 in the suburb of Jigjiga city. The killing machine was headed by the current leader of ONLF who was an admiral under Said Barre for twenty one years. He does not have a clue about Ethiopian politics.
    Moreover, the ideology of clan has destroyed Somali state and their leaders that could not restore a government in the last twenty five years. The phenomenon of secession will not be allowed in the twenty first century where the world is heading to be united. The funny part of this bogus organization is welcomed by the Northern who wanted to see a people who are still in the mindset of secession.
    Somali are Ethiopian as any other ethnic group in Ethiopia . Why do you allowing this secession group in your website when you blocked the people who are struggling to create a democratic country where rule of law prevails?

    • Somali Ethiopian

      The onlf is clan militia but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the Somalis in that region are happy being Ethiopian and they asked to be united with habasha whom they have nothing in common with. You talk of the whole world uniting as if we volontarly united with them. Usually when people unite, they do so for mutual interest so all can benefit from it. But we all know reality on the ground and the immense sufferings of our people so why should we stay in this union? I think you are suffering from acute case of Stockholm syndrome. Let’s end the occupation.

      • My Muslim brother if you think Ogaden ( ONLF ) a clan , please
        read the Ogaden history by British government and Ethiopians
        ——————-this is a summary ——————
        Ethiopia/Ogaden (1948-present)

        Crisis Phase (July 24, 1948-January 31, 1977): Ethiopia regained authority over the Ogaden region from the British government as a result of an agreement signed on July 24, 1948. General Asfaw Wold Giorgis was appointed as Governor of the Ogaden region and Commander of the Third Army Division. Ethiopian government troops commanded by Major Tsige Dibu suppressed an uprising of ethnic Somalis in Gridida in November 1951. In 1956, Emperor Haile Selassie toured the Ogaden in order to defuse tensions in the region.

    • @somali Ethiopian

      I would like to ask you sense you are advocating for the world to unite. Do you support the unity of somalia or do you support somaliland the secessionist clan enclave’s desire to secede?

      Wax uun bay xushleeyaan xabashida idooreh!! Kkkk

  2. Here is your real definition. Please read and learn that you will never see again dominating Somali Region while you are collaborating with secession.
    For the Amhara, whose elite dominated Abyssinian power for more than a century, the challenge is to revamp their identity. They have to say farewell to their historical ascendancy and accept that their place in the Ethiopian state should reflect their numerical and economic importance, no more, no less. In other words, the only way out of the undoubted ostracism they suffer is not to re-establish the former status quo. The assertion of “Amhara-ness” – legitimate as it is – cannot become a cover for the aspiration for a return to an “Ethiopianness” based around Amhara, with the other ethnicities in a lesser role. This metamorphosis is under way, but not yet complete. Nonetheless, many Oromo and even more Tigrayans deny that anything has changed, convinced that this elite has not abandoned its “chauvinism” and “revanchism”,and that the federal system that they defend tooth and nail could therefore never satisfy its deeply cherished ambition.The only way out of the undoubted ostracism [the Amhara] suffer is not to re-establish the former status quo.

    These ethno-nationalisms have become inflamed and even paranoid. Today, “all the politics is revolving around ethnicity”, a former senior TPLF official told me, and in a previous remark: “what I see now dominantly… is the proliferation of racial or ethnic hatred”.[3] It is focused on the Tigrayans, not only because of the major role of the Tigrayan Peoples’s Liberation Front (TPLF), but because both Oromo and Amhara equate Tigrayan silence in the face of repression with approval. “The preliminary rhetoric of ethnic cleansing is already here”, opines one social scientist, a man familiar with the grass roots of the country.

  3. Somali éthiopien
    ONLF is not representing thé somali under thé colonial rule of éthiopien. They représente the ogaden Tribe living un goday dhagahbuur and th ogaden aria But they are fighting the colonial régime.Ethiopia is a prison of nations .and somalis havé the right to fight for Their right to self détermination.
    Highlanders are laghing at You when you call yourself somali éthiopien for them somalis are number one ennemy.
    The solution for lasting peace is a confederation of nations with English as official language .
    Dont forget that we are part of somali nation,we are divided because of the history and the weapon given to the higlander menelik by the europeen to ressue the Christian Iland.
    You dont exist on the éthiopien history because il is amhara history.

  5. Hussein,
    Distorting history will not give ONLF a green light to rule Somali Region of Ethiopia. The 11 highest echelon are born in Somalia. For example, the chairman of ONLF served the dictator regime of Said Barre until his last days . Additionally, There is other history that Ogaden in Somali Region. Hawd and Reserve Area was annexed to Ethiopia in 1954. Ogaden was annexed in 1948, you are correct. There are more than fifteen Somali clan besides Ogaden clan in Somali Region. The question that ONLF does not want to answer is that ONLF is formed by Said Barre in 1984 and destroyed Western Somali Liberation Front after WSLF renounced that they did not need the support of dictator Said Barre and they wanted to sort out their problem with Ethiopian government. ONLF and secessionist group will not bring a lasting peace in Ethiopia , simply organizing along the line of ethnicity , religion and region , which is a social construct, will not finalize the ultimate freedom that any Ethiopian person is fighting for it .
    Lastly, as you know that ONLF, Liyu Police, and the current region leader in Somali Region , Abdi Eily are the same in my watch. The good news is that the question of power in Ethiopia is its turning point. Now, the international community and all peace loving Ethiopian are fighting to have an alternative that the chauvinist, narrow nationalist and the bogus federal system of EPRDF.
    We are all Ethiopian and united will succeed ; divided will fail.

  6. somali ethiopian……somali ethiopian……somali ethiopian,,,,what the heck you are writing[RUBBISH]…..you arent ethiopian,if you are say i am “Ethiopian”..talk on behalf of ethiopia ,then you can say something about “ONLF”,but yournt all these,your are hate filled creature,tribalist,.In addition,to that you dont know nothing about the history of Ethiopia,but a jackada herder,an uplifter of “Qabyaalad”.so you better write a meanigful idea{suggestion} or keep “neftegna Dergist”.
