  1. Dawud was irrelevant, now he is trying to revive himself out of his death bed. Probably he is working with weyanne (the reason i said he is working with wayanne is obvious for any body. The ethiopian people have united against weyanne and this unity is very dangerous for weynne and Dawud so he knows exactly ethiopian unity will make him and weyanne useless so he has to do something to save himself) or he is out of touch. Poor Dawud!!!

  3. I don’t think we all understand out need. Why?
    1- If the struggle is against TPLF, it should also be against all liberation fronts too because we have to be careful not to repeat the same mistake again; for example OLF is the same criminal group who escorted TPLF with the same ideology and killed many innocent human beings in the so called OROMIA KILLEL, and finally kicked out by TPLF and many of the OLF members and leaders are abandon the people what they said they are representing and came to Europe and America.
    2- All the so called Liberation Fronts are the remnant of Communist ideology, which brought to Ethiopia Deville sprite and still creating problems b/n all human beings in the country,
    3-We don’t have to lie each other by saying that we are all one. I am not saying all because I don’t have the stat sticks, but from what I can see most of the new Oromo generation are intoxicated by the OLF hatred ideology and trying to act like they don’t belong in Ethiopia, which is taking the whole situation to worst. First of all the so called Oromia Killel was overloaded by TPLF & OLF not by the People referendum. The only reason it is going on right now is because people don’t have any choice until they own their God given freedom, let be honest Wolega, Bale, Arusi …etc Oromo people they all have their own different cultures, and even if we think they speak the same language, but we need to know that they do have their own dialogue in their particular location this applies to Amhara ethnic group too. If it was a free interest I can assure you that they all don’t want to be in one basket called Oromia or Amhara because if we talked based on dialogue and culture they all have their own identity. The creation of great Oromia is the illusion of criminal OLF organization and the divide and rule ideology of TPLF. There was no OROMIA before and there will not be in the future.
    4- I can’t say every thing in writing, but I can say please Wake up from you deep sleep and don’t make another mistake again, if you want to fight TPLF you have to fight OLF and other liberation fronts at the same time because it is a joke to stand up among these fronts and expect to work for freedom.
    Solution:
    1- We all need to get out of a devil sprite and come together and ask God’s forgiveness by praying form the bottom of our hearts.
    2- Every so called collection of people or organizations are working for their own interest not for the people interest, they all use the burning issue of the people to get them to power, and we have seen this in the recent 40-50 years and we need to wake up, Freedom was given to all of us by God when we first came to this world, but we allowed other group of people to take away our freedom ourselves. If we want to get it back, we all need to stand as a human being not as ethnic group because we have to say enough for those group of people (organization) acting like they are representing us all and divide us in ethnic groups for their own interest.
    3-To bring back our God given freedom, let us create a new FREEDOM FOR ALL HUMAN-BEINGS LIVE IN THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF ETHIOPIA, and work together under this umbrella and get to our destination in a short period of time other wise if we keep going to follow all the previous all so called opposition groups we are playing a game on ourselves because we have seen these groups for the last 25 years standing only their own agenda not for the people, actually they don’t event care the blood shed of the people, and their aim is putting themselves on the next power competition, Please people wake up and form your own FREE HUMAN BEING IN ETHIOPIA.
    GOD BLESSES ALL THE HUMAN BEING IN ETHIOPIA!
    HELP US GOD!

  5. Ow Ow!!! You ain’t got no army. Our fearless leader Obbo Jawar who is in the thick of it back in the old country leading and coordinating the revolution is putting the final touches on the designed Oromo Liberation Armed Forces. You trying to steal his thunder!!! It is not only an army like yours but includes naval, air force, a Delta Force of 25,000, a Navy Seal of 10,000 and uber secret rapid deployment commando corps of thousands. He has told me and many others recently that more than 70% of members of the US Congress headed by Senator Leahy fully support the creation of a fully independent Oromia. In your face Ibsa!!! You will have no chance if you think putting up a fight with his armed forces and you better stay in Asmara munching down that killer lasagna or that put-me-to-sleep halawa in Cairo. I think that might have been the reason why government officials in Cairo called your front ‘that OLF thing’. You are a ‘thing’, you see, al-abd, a nigger but not a worthy of a human being to them. What you gonna do now? Is that why you are passing a death sentence on every civil servant who has to take a job to make ends meet, to raise a family and to support his aging parents? Obbo Jawar does not play games. He is a man of his words. Once he is able to transit his formidable fighting forces from the deserts of Hadhramaut into Oromia you are toast. Hadhramaut means courtyard of death. That means you will drop dead just by his stare of death!!! You better proclaim that the entire Oromia has been liberated by your army now and you better do it quick, not next month, next week or even tomorrow but before the end the day, today!!! Otherwise, in face of formidable forces of Jawar, Al-Toweel Isaias will drop you like a hot potato. Doing things like that is Al-Toweel’s pass time favorite. You remember what happened to the G7 2nd man Obbo Andargachew? Try to ask one of Isaias’ henchmen. They will brag telling you all about it.

  7. this is hardly believable, a sound of another dictator spreading fear and intimidation. this is a bad tone and a recipe for another cycle of war and violence. it is a divisive and anti peace.

  11. Dawud Ibsa or Jawar, they’re bound to hit a dead-end.

    If movements like the OLF or Jawar’s no-name activism that declared war on regional and federal governments and non-Oromo Ethiopians with intent to separate Oromia persist, the governments – both regioanl and federal – are justified to protect the territorial integrity of the country. Self-determination which OLF pushes for is a right guaranteed by the constitution which can only be pursued by constitutional means. Try the constitution to achieve your goal rather than call Oromos to disrupt their own and other peoples lives by killing each other and destroying property.

    Eliminating movements working to dismember an exisitng state under the guise of self-determination is legal under international law including United Nations and AU charters. The right to self-determination is still secondary to ensuring territorial integrity of a state which international law and state practice uphold as sacrosanct. The international community hates states that fail to discharge this responsibility. If it does not act swiftly and decisively, Ethiopia might might be condemned as one.

    The recent defeat of Tamil Tigers who fought for decades to separate Tamil from Sri Lanka was not criticised by the international community. In fact, it was welcome without expressly said. The only concern that was raised relates to possible violation of Geneva conventions relating to the conduct of war and respect of fundamental rights during the war. Simply said, use of force to stamp out separatisits is a regular state responsibility which no one should be afraid to talk about. The message is to OLF which talks about colonialsim hoping that rules pertaining to protecting territorial integrity do not apply to colonies. OLF cannot convince anyone on this issue.

    If, by some miracle OLF separates Oromia from Ethiopia, it does not mean Oromia will be a state in the real sense of the term. It simply means one chapter is closed and another opened. Once Oromia is separate Ethiopia will be cut into its west, north, north-east, east-east regions together on one side and the south and soth-west on the other side. After the separation, west, north, north-east and east-east regions together will be the successors of the present Ethiopian state. These are Binshagul_- Gumuz, Tigray, Amara, Harar, Afar and Somali regions together. Gambella and the south regions will be cut south to form part of the new Ethiopian successor state in the north. With this fact on the ground, a new struggle begins.

    Without the recogntion of the new Ethiopian state Oromia will not stand as an indepenedent state among the family of nations. Ethiopia and Sudan recognized Eritrea and South Sudan respectively to let them emerge as new states without which the latter would have remained as Somaliland in Somalia. Despite de facto independence for over twenty years, the international community has denied de jure existence of Somaliland simply because recognition has to come from a state in Somalia. In fact, even if weak, lack of recognition of Somaliland as independent state by exisiting governemnt in Somalia has effectively stopped Somalia’s disintegration.

    Like the government in Somalia, the new government in the new the Ethiopian state will stop Oromia from emerging as a state. This is for OLF which claims to lead Oromos to indepnendence. The future is rough than you might think.

    So, why not join hands with tens of millions of non-Oromo Ethiopian to usher in a new democratic Ethiopia rather than waste decades in a project that’s to result a dead -end.
