Abiy Ahmed: The First Nobel Laureate On Trial at the International Criminal Court?
NAIROBI (Reuters) by Michael Rubin- Ethiopia's prime minister may want to coast on the laurels of the Nobel Prize but, realistically, he may very quickly become the first Nobel laureate to face war crimes charges.

The Tigrayan genocide
Alemseged Abbay 02-20-21 - Tigrayans defeated Ethiopia's Marxist junta, Derg, in 1991 and transformed the country from a posterchild of war and famine into a land of peace and economic miracle by 2018. However, the US was discontented with the developmental state model which put Ethiopia closer to China.

On Junta, Fascism, and the nature of Evil
Aesop 02-20-21 - There are three jargons hovering around Tigrai that merit consideration these days. We often hear Tigrai's enemies call her elected leaders: "junta". We also hear Tigreans calling their persecutors "fascists". The international community is expressing disgust by what many portray as an "evil" act in Tigrai.

US: Aid pause to Ethiopia no longer linked to dam dispute
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The United States says it has decided to "de-link" its suspension of millions of dollars of aid to Ethiopia from that country's dispute with Egypt.

A Requiem for Our Tegaru Martyrs
Dawit Seyoum 02-18-21 - Why do they hate us? Why do they want our subjugation and possible elimination? Where did we go wrong? Were we wrong to be responsible for and to be the original center of Coptic Christianity in sub-Saharan Africa? To have Axum Tsion in our midst, and such a historic place to be our own and offer it as a place of worship to others? Maybe sharing our history, sharing who we are and who we have been for time immemorial with the utmost pride was our downfall; or maybe our downfall was wanting to make our history theirs.

U.S. Leadership Can Help End the Crisis in Ethiopia
By Editorial Board - Ethiopia's worsening civil war, which has already drawn in Eritrea and is now spilling over into Sudan, threatens to destabilize the entire Horn of Africa. Having thus put the government on notice, the administration should be prepared to impose punishment if Abiy fails to respond adequately.A good first step would be to join the EU in suspending assistance until the UN and other aid agencies are allowed free access to Tigray. Simultaneously, the U.S. should push for negotiations — between Ethiopia and Sudan, and between Addis Ababa and the Tigrayans

Free Jawar Mohammed!
Aesop 02/18/2021 - It is time for the Oromo people to extract their leader, Jawar, from prison. Regardless of his political ambitions, Jawar is too young to languish in prison. Anyone who opposes him should debate him at the political arena, not starve him to death.

Moral Decay and the Poverty of Conscience in Ethiopia
Aynalem Sebhatu 02-17-21 - With the ascent of Abiy Ahmed to power, arguably for much longer time; political elites, religious leaders, intellectuals and journalists as people and citizens of Ethiopia seem to have lost their way.

Voice of Reason 02-17-21 - Colonel Abiy Ahmed has the shameless audacity to state: "Toward a Peaceful Order in the Horn of Africa" published in Project Syndicate on Feb 6, 2021.

M. Mikael, 02/15/2021 - A totally avoidable, unprecedented, man‐made disaster and tragedy is unfolding in the Tigray region of Ethiopia – so much so that, apart from the atrocities and human suffering being inflicted on the whole population of Tigray, (or perhaps as a direct result of that), the continuing existence of Ethiopia itself as a nation is now coming into question.
