September 15, 2007: It is becoming clearer this days than ever, that, the self serving OLF leaders are becoming more isolated, more corrupted morally and politically in the bid to progress human relation.
Solving a genuine social issue is not as easy as you read or writing propaganda lies. OLF is been as explained by many in the past including my self that OLF is an organization lead by corrupted extreme elements with history of difficulty to transfer themselves to the human world. OLF as organization continuing living in the stage of denial, this time it reacted to the “commemorating of Ethiopian Millennium” as “a Day of Sorrow for the Oromo People” in its filthy propaganda press.
One reads their press with sorrow, weighing the label of denial and wisdom the paper contained. “Over 40, 000 Oromos are suffering of torture in Ethiopian prisons such as Kaliti, Maikelawi, Zeway, Nekemte, Dhidheessaa, Harar Jaarsoo, Mekele, Adwa, Bure, Zaraba Gidaf, Gimbi, Robe;…..” Because of this, OLF leadership claimed, “The Oromo people have nothing to do with the so called Ethiopian millennium. It is neither our heritage nor our culture. For the Habeshas attempting to force the Oromo people to celebrate their own festival amounts to insulting us, Oromos”.
Opposing a tyranny from a government is another thing; denying identity because of government repression is different thing. To me these fox are absolute criminals need to be brought to the international court for forcing society abandoning their religious beliefs for political manipulations. Religion is part of culture. And Habesha is the source for Islam and Christianity, therefore, if Oromo people have nothing to do with the so called Islam and Christianity colander or culture, then there is no question that OLF is telling the Oromo Christians and Islam to abandon their Christian and Islam religious culture and reverse their religious belief to OLF culture/religion? Isn’t this crime worst than what OLF is accusing the TPLF accusing for arresting 40,000 Oromo? Is OLF a religious/cultural organization? If so what is the OLF culture and religion?
The near death experience of these liars read this way “We do not share anything together. While they are dancing, we are in jail, in refugee camps, and in the Oromian jungle in search of our freedom”.
It is true that OLF leaders do not share anything with us, because they are terrorists, mass murderers, and extreme mercenaries on denial, clinically dead brain who have no identity or country. But the Oromo people share their religious beliefs as Christians and Islam, married, shared their culture and soul for more than Millennium confronting the bad and the good together. The Oromo farmers have nothing to do with OLF or never told OLF deluded leaders that they wanted to abandon Christianity or Islam which is Habesha culture and religion.
We are not dancing either. There are Oromo who dance with us when we dance there are Oromo who arrested and suffer with us when we are arrested and suffered. Oromo are not the only one jail or in the jungle for freedom, thousands if not millions of Ethiopians too are in refugee camps suffering if not singled out and mistreated apart than the OLF and Somali or Eritreans in Djibouti, Yemen, Somalia (in the old Somalia) Sudan. Stop lying! No more distortion. We the Ethiopians fought hard, wrote, demonstrate, published on websites and Amharic and English magazines and papers (Ethiopian register, Hwarya, Tobiya, Goh, Zega, Menlik. …and many and many of them…….and in many opposition radio websites (specially EPRP- Finote radio- how can you forget this patriotic radio station who day in day out reported about Oromo people’s –student’s suffering and arrest?) about the suffering of Oromo students and people by TPLF more than the OLF elites and websites for 16 years; while the OLF website was dormant for many years with no current update simply decorated by OLF flag of distortion. You have been lying for forty years with no one exposing you- it is now our time to go after your necked lies. Stop lying! Enough! The more you lie, the more we come harder on you!
