Associate Professor Hassan Hussein on Oromo and Ethiopian | Video
Zehabesha I think You run out of news, ideas etc.
There is a clear contradiction in “ያስፈራል፤ ግን ኢትዮጵያ አትፈርስም!”
Some renowned psychologists says something that raises fear has basis in reality and is likely to happen than not.
If you see the danger posed to Ethiopia’s unity, it is not imaginery. In fact, it was in the making for the last fifty or so years.
As far as I am concerned, Ethiopia’s foundation has cracked and it might fructure more in the coming years. I don’t see any organized force to prevent the threat to Ethiopia’s unity and there is no force to consolodate what is left of her after Eritrea said GOODBYE.
Some Ethiopians I know say Ethiopia will not disintegrate into her ethnic entities and disappear. The thing is they do not have anything to back their wishful idea or dream. The same thing has been said regarding Eritrea which is no longer with us now.
I say better accept the possibility of Ethiopia’s disintegration and work to prevent it by consolodationg what exists now. If that is not possible, getting prepared to deal with what is to follow is not a bad thing to do.
Take prof. Mesfin’s write up published above. The good professor is defiant that Ethiopia will not disappear. I looked for his reasons for saying so but failed to find one. He has simply made a prophecy of Ethiopia’s eternal unity than justify his wishful thinking.
Given what is being said by some influencial Oromos, I did not find anything in prof. Mesfin’s write-up to encourage me the country will remain united for long. The sad thing is, because he believes there is no risk to Ethiopia’s unity he makes no suggestion to avert the risk.
In contrast to Prof. Mesfin’s wishful thinking, look above at what one Urgessa said in the “response” section. From the six points he raised, the first is a complete lie. The Oromo Meeting is not about post- TPLF Ethiopia including Oromia; it is rather about post_TPLF self-determination of Oromia. Points 2 and 3 clearly confirm this fact. Point 4 is not convincing because some influential Oromo activists are of the opinion that Ethiopia and Ethiopians (in exclusion of Oromia and Oromos) cannot be reformed (or simply said cannot be democratized) and the solution is to dissolve Ethiopia and dissimate its population so that Oromia and Oromos can emerge as a state and people. Point 5 is true but the influential Oromo activists believe the past is less relevant compared to what the future independent Oromia can offer to Oromos. Point 6 is doubtful because of the reason mentioned under point 5. Ethiopia and Ethiopians cannot be reformed. As a result, Oromia cannot and should not be a glue to a body politic that cannot be reformed. That entity is lost forever.
Unlike prof. Mesfin who is a wishful thinker or dreamer, Urgessa is delusional bordering insanity. He says “all Oromo activists are saying … that Oromos will be at the center of the future democratic Ethiopia”. Where did Urgessa get this from? Am I in a different planet that I have not heard or read what he has heard or read? Even Prof. Mesfin’s note is in reaction to Oromo activists who say there is no independent Oromia without dissolving Ethiopia first. Aren’t I right?
So many people like Urgess rush themselves to apologize rather than confront some Oromo activists who tell us to our face that they’re working to dissolve our country. These activists aren’t only disloyal to Ethiopia but also to their forefathers who contributed to build the country in everything they had including their lives. These activists are sellouts who should be condemned for their destructive threats and straigtened up rather than appeased to bring them to the fold.
My humblest suggestion let’s restrain ourselves from confusing others by plunging them into wishful thinking and lies.
Pointless, no remarkable substance.
ግማሽ ክፋይ የኢትዮፕያ
ሁሉም ሊኖርብሽ ግብግብ
ትግሬ አማራ ጉራጌ
እኛን ገፍትረው ወደ ግርጌ
ሊያልበን ይፈልጋል ባለጌ
ኣጉል ባንቺ ስም ቢምሉ
መስቀል ቢጨብጡ ጨረቃ ቢወጡ
እኩል ካልሆን：ኣጉል ነው ቅጡ！
ቧጡ！ቧጡ！ ሰማይ ቧጡ！
ይልቅ ልቀቁ;ካገራችን ውጡ！！
