Come to the issue,all of you misunderstand (even then muslim comments here)
No muslim asked to build sheria law or poletics,how can we ask sheria in a country with diversty of religion? I guess you accept what ETV said so as to longen thiere power and to create stupid and endless war bn muslims and christians.
The question has no relation with christian brothers. The question is STOP AHBASHISM! FREE OUR SCHOLARS! FREE OUR MESJIDS, even the gont is mislead.
We know all in Ethio that christian brothers also help the peacefull muslims.
Please donot trust woyane.@ harari please donot say what muslims donot ask say.donot be the reason to cheat islam and muslims,its better to know islam and Quran.
Dear brother, I completely agree with your statement. Ethiopian Muslims and Christians have leaved in peace for centuries and most of Christians support your struggle on government interference on Islam. You are within your constructional right to decide your future, and who you should choose as your leader. What we are opposing is extremist ideas such as Hariri’s which undermine the true Ethiopian Muslims struggle. I would also like to congratulate you for your peaceful demonstrations.

Let me ask you a question. Why you are so defensive to your Agame governmnet? I told you before that you seem smart boy and thought may be your mother does not know your father... that is why she gave you to Agame. Could be an Eritrean.
Any way in reality Muslims are majority in Ethiopia. As far as statistics consern there is a twisted statistics in Ethiopia that can not be relied on.
Good example: Agame led Ethiopian government is claiming to have the economy progressed by 11%. The world bank and IMF claim by ??? you know if you are smart.
During the Eritrea Ethiopia border war.... Ethiopia claims to loose almost none. While the world community claims that Ethiopia lost over 100,000 poor Ethiopians.
Do you want me to come with another convincing issue.
Okay no problem.
Ethiopia claimed to come out from Somalia, after it illegaly to serve its masters has invaded the country. Guess what is happening there... you can complete the dots by yourselves.
Another one... no problem
The Swedish Journalists and the drama that entail to accuse them...
I bet you know how to fill the dots.
Is it convincing now that no one believe even a single data that is produced by the Weyane led reports.
you are twidting the truth as usual, if you are interested here are some facts.

Your statement of "the of Ethiopia" imply that you are going to import arabs and name the country, either Bin Laden or Asia for the child of 6 bride of mohamed. Is that what you are talking about. As you being the majority, maybe the arabs are lying to you to be so. Otherwise, if you have a little brain, you would have research it, but then, as delusional as any moselum is I do not see any difference between you and those arabs, who are aiming to drive the Jewish people, till they were kicked there arab ass, never to have such a delusional lofty dream.

Is it your plan to have intifada every friday? Last weekend four were killed while trying to free another fundamentalist from jail. I have read your government interference complaint was heared by the authorities and they have said they have nothing to do with it. What is the point then to change your mosques from praying house to protest bazars every friday. I have heared these demonstrations have nothing to do with the government but a prelude to change Ethiopia to a muslim state. I have nothing against peaceful muslims but political islam is something else. Intimidation politics doesn't help anyone. What do you think will happen if Christians in Arab countries go out demonstrating every suday after sunday mas?

You should feel ashamed like other pals. The Agames are ashamed of everything.

Being:

A. Servants of the west and east.
B. Melting with inferiority complex. They are even ashamed to speak and write with their twisted Tigringa.
C. They are unthankful to whom he/she extended hand to help

So you better go and pray your God for forgiveness before you follow your Meles in the hell.

Is it NOT then such a pitty, for these ilks to engage in smear campain in bashing Islam and Muslim, while vehemently despise anything of that nature if said to their Christian belief and its followers, what an irony! Two wrongs don’t make it right.The only thing one can say at this point is: go read history and you woud be in a better position to avoid playing the ‘repeat of the dooms days’– sort of Déjà vu all over again.
BTW, where are your priorities? For a second in playing a devil’s advocate,I pose this question: Who suffers when a man has sex with his dead wife's body? How can you compare that with the potential life-long abuse of a young woman? I simply fail to understand the priorities of people who care more about dead corps than living ones. Which brings me to the point of: were where all these news junkies when Alem’s saga was unfolding in Beirut…NOT a sole was to be found, except few, to cast their opinions in vouching for her rights and alike for those who are alive and under the burden of modern day slavery in thousands, serving as a house-maids all over Middle-East.

Stop fecking associating with you people, I'm 100% Ethiopian - I have told many times. You know every morning when I get up, I thank god for not making me Eritrean - I mean few km North of my parents land, there are the people I despise the most, I could have been from there.

I have never been to Eritrea, neither have my parents and I got no plans what so ever to visit your shitwhole - I mean even your people are leaving it FOR SHIMELBA!! Yes, bloody Shimelba, a dusty settlement town that is even worse than BADIME! Why would I ever want to go to your country, why don't I just go to Shimelba if I want to underprivileged people!

...and why do you keep saying I'm proud Eritrean? Who asked you because I didn't? I called that INSECURITY!! You Eritrean keep harping about inferiority complex, but do you guys even know what it actually means!? You probably don't but its cool to use, ey!?After all, this isn't the Eritrean forum, but you come here everyday with the same boring shiit. You don't see me going to your forum and doing what you do here. This is my opinion of you people; you feel you are nothing compared to Ethiopians, so you have decided we might be a failure in life, but at least in the internet we can claim we are better than Ethiopians. Now, that is what I call inferiority complex!!

No one is blaming the puppet PM Hailemariam. It is TPLF cadres who are continuing the legacy of Meles Zenawi's murdering of innocent Ethiopians. The irony is TPLF cadres are labeling innocent Ethiopians as terrorists while they are the ones who are terrorizing innocent Ethiopians.

Funny, you make me lough half breed islamist. You are rather a negro abid of a typical half breed jihadis islamist. Are you the one who call your mohamed the child molester with 32 wife arab as your prophet? Your stupidity amaze me. If you are aware, he was a rug head arab. On top of that you are hoping the whabist terrorist, who love to blow up children, old people, so that you want to go to paradise to get, what mohamed promised you knowing fully well that stupid people will do anything to get the 72 virgins in the land of milk and honey.
