From the news article:
"The current conflict began in September 2011 when the government withdrew the licence of the International Islamic Relief Organisation, a Saudi NGO funding the religious school at the Awolia Mosque in Addis Ababa.“We wanted confirmation that they would not engage in religious affairs, which they could not provide,” said a government spokesperson. Under Ethiopian law, the official said humanitarian organisations cannot run religious institutions."
Christian missions such as Catholic, Adventist, Jehova Witnesses produced PM HD, Lutheran Church, Prespyteranian, are allowed to establish religious schhols and hospitals. Why not Islamic missions?Such blatan religious inequality bring out the worst in me. Sometimes, committing mass murders at a gathering of EPRDF politicians duel in my head.

The difference is: Saudi NGOs produce only religious zealots and terrorists while Christian NGOs produce peaceful intelegent and well educated individuals. Many in the Arab world were and are still schooled by Christian missionaries. Many Ethiopian muslims preffer to send their kids to Chatholic missionary schools for good educations. Chatedral, St Joseph, Nazret and St Merry are good examples of good Chatolic missionary schools in Addis. On the contrary we don't want madrassas nor any Wahabi religious/political NGOs whose purpose is only Salafist indoctrinations.

Alex the jihadist,

Do Christians in Arab world have religious equality you seem to demand of the Ethiopians? Are they allowed to build Churches or publicly celebrate their religious festivities, or demonstrate weeky after Sunday mas? The answer is no but you seem to do all of this in Christian majority Ethiopia. Suppose you were majority, God forbid, we would have to live like Christians in the Arab world, i.e. we would be living like scared rats always scared of angry muslim mobs.

If Christians were to have a minimum of four wives, the population would be much greater - but we have morals! Islam may increase at rapid rate, but it will always be a religion that has no relevance in the world order.

...and if Ethiopia is a shithole, I don't know what your country would be!

No African country is religiously bigotted as Ethiopia and Eritrea are. I guess US and Europe are throwing money at you, the Chirstian Island Byzantium created as tools of Europe's imeprialism in Africa. That makes you traitors of race for obvious reasons.
Islam in Ethiopia has been shrinking at a dramatic rate since 16th century while EOC, which is a cult rejected by main stream Orthodox christianity has been growing in Ethiopia.

No, but poor women that can't find jobs, do what is necessary to go by. Killing innocent people under gods name, having sex with a dead wife, impregnating your daughters, marrying your cousin aren't moral in EOC! Next!!

Muslim in Europa are about 2% and Somali has never been rich in its short existance. But dream is free and you can dream Europe has become islam and next America follows hahahahahahaha You live in Canada and instead of admiring their kindness you want to convert them to this horrible religion you run away from. Ungrateful muslim.

When are Somalis going to give freedom "to exist" for Somali Christians? You people have bombed to the ground the only Church in the whole country. Yet you come to Ethiopia and want to build thousends of mosques. That is not acceptable.
