(Aigaforum) Nov 17, 2020 - Abiy Ahmed's army is reeling from a string of bruising defeats in Southern Tigray.

The brigand Abiy, a student of Aung Sam Suu and Isayas, destroying Ethiopia!
W. Yilma November, 16/2020 - The world is watching as if the unjust war going on against the people of Tigray, is similar to watch as entertainment the savage bloody Gladiators fight in the past century.

Barbaric-Genocidal Ethnic Cleansing, Extreme Savagery, in Ethiopia
Mogos Abraham, PhD Centre for Middle Eastern Studies, Canada 16 Nov. 2020- When he was an Intelligence Officer in the Ethiopian National Intelligence and Information Service Agency, Mr. Abiy Ahmed Ali, currently an illegitimate Prime Minister, who has illegally imposed his will on Ethiopians, conspired with Isaias Afeworki, President of Eritrea, and several guerrilla groups that were fighting against the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE)

Stop the crime against humanity and ethnic cleansing Being perpetrated by Abiy Ahmed

Is Addis Ababa My Home Anymore?
Yosef* November 14, 2020 - I have lived in this city for a good chuck of my adult life. I went to college here, in Mengistu's time, and headed to become a civil servant. I lived here more than in Tigray where I come from. I called it home and it was, indeed, my home. Really, it was at least until the night of November 3rd.

Open Letter to Amnesty International from Ethiopian Canadians for Peace
Ethiopian Canadians for Peace November 14, 2020 - We are also shocked by the suggestion in the report that forces belonging to the Tigiray Regional State could be responsible for the massacre of their own people. It defies logic to indicate that the highly disciplined, well trained and well-armed forces of the regional state, which had been administering the area for more than 30 years, would be used to commit such horrific crimes using rudimentary weapons.

The UAE's Drones:Crimes against the Prophet Muhammad & Islam
Hailemariam Abebe 11-15-20 - Often, when people hear of the holy word Hijra or Hijrah, they do mistakenly think that it is the first historical milestone in the Islamic faith referring to first migrations away from the birth of the Islamic faith or Mecca to Medina, in 622 A.D. The true or accurate first Hijra or Hijrah was however, the one which took place in the year of 613 A.D.

Report of UAE Drone being used by Abiy/Isaias to Bomb Tigrai
Update 11/15/2020 - Following Mr. Getachew Reda's tweet, people are speculating about the direct involvement of the UAE in the war theater. Given the fact that Isaias Afewerki and Abiy Ahmed's loyalty to the UAE's sphere of influence in the region, according to many regional analysts the UAE's intervention won't be surprising. So be it and It is going to be whatever is going to be. Our response should be: we, Tigrayans and by extension nations and nationalities of Ethiopia, have a just cause on our side. More importantly, let us remember, Dr. Debretsion's, wise words. We are not going to prevail in this war because we are equipped with sophisticated armaments, we will prevail because of our cause and our people's determination. So, all eyes on the prize: our unity. Our unity is the minimum requirement at this time of our history. There is one great received cultural trait, from our martyrs, which must live on in the memories and conscience of Tigrayans: The minimum requirement of being a Woyane was being a hero.

Amnesty International's Irresponsible Allegations
Elias Dawit 11-13-20 - Amnesty International, a global human rights organization, issued a statement saying "We have confirmed the massacre of a very large number of civilians, who appear to have been day labourers in no way involved in the ongoing military offensive.

W. Yilma November 13, 2020 - As we all know, in today’s Ethiopia by the order of the warlord Abiy Ahmad Ali and his associates, ethnic cleansing, crime against humanity and genocide becomes a daily life for ordinary Ethiopians.

Danger of Genocide, Ethiopia Getting Closer to Death Rattle.
G.Amare, November 13, 2020. Here again, the illegitimate Ethiopian PM, Abiy Ahmed, is doing everything and anything to deceive the world.

Aynalem Sebhatu 11-11-20 - The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Abiy Ahmed, the Prime Minister Ethiopia, "for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and in particular for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea."

(New York Times) Tsedale Lemma 11-11-20 - ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia - The announcement last week that the government was about to launch a military operation into one of the country's regions came, to put it lightly, as a shock.
