You sound like a broken record repeating the same thing again and again. If the demography on the map is right show us a source otherwise it remains a childish map drawn by an illiterate imam in one of your hateful mosques. You can not take over Ethiopia yet like you took over North Africa. It is because of sensless jihadist like you we hate islam than anything else. Morone. Tell me one Muslim in Ethiopian history except the criminal and mas murderer Giragn Ahmed who destroyed so many Chruches and killed many Christians. Tell me one good Ethiopian muslim in history. They don't exist. How can you take over a country where you don't even exist in its history.

Well, if that was the case, Ethiopians christians probably wouldn't be immigrating to muslim regions in the first place, Addis Abeba which is the capital city of Islamic Republic of Ethiopia is filled with Christians beggars from north Ethiopia.
Alex was right...You are HURTING Ethiopian Muslims deliberately by being too careless and too stupid. May be you are not an Ethiopian Muslim after all.

This unnecessary tension between Ethiopian Christians and Muslims is deliberately created by the minority led weyane government which also divides and rules Ethiopians on ethnic basis. All Ethiopians regardless of religion must come together and defeat this regime that killed many Ethiopians from all religions and kept them in destitution while the leaders enriched themselves immensely.

Historically, Ethiopian Muslims and Christians were able to manage to leave in peace. However, in recent days we have witnessed tension and on same time Wuhabism blooming, building hundreds of mosques and religious schools in all part of Ethiopia under a Muslim charity group, with a concentration in Ethiopia. We Ethiopians Muslims and Christians need to look at these unique circumstances carefully, because, I believe extremism will hurt both Muslim and Christian interest in a long term... in a large part, most Muslims oppose the these extremism idea and want to maintain a peaceful relationship they have enjoyed for centuries. One of the big disadvantage is, that Ethiopia being a poor country, it makes the Muslim community more vulnerable to adapt extremism idea with a simple handout of small number individuals. So, my final say is that Ethiopians have the advantage of controlling the outcome by just asking a question, why now? Our father has defended this beautiful country from a foreign destructive influence and extreme ideology. it is these generation responsibility to maintain our history and to follow the principle of our extraordinary fathers. By the end of the night, religion is a spiritual belief between an individual and god whom he/she believes. And it shouldn’t affect the way of life of other individuals.

First, nobody will ever ask you to send any money because you are a bum and you need help yourself. Real philanthropists donate out of their desire to help the needy. Only fake philanthropists like you go on a forum and brag about a charity they never do. 

Second, yes, Ethiopia has its challenges, poverty being the primary concern. But please educate yourself on Ethiopian history before you make an ignorant fool out of yourself. Statistics shows that Ethiopia is a Christian majority country. There is a significant number of Muslim population as well. However, throughout history Muslims have not been able to occupy important political positions and lead the country - mainly because of their own apathy towards politics. If Ethiopia is considered as a failed state, and any religion is going to take the blame for it then it will be Christianity that will take the blame. I strongly do not believe religions are to blame, and fortunately, no Ethiopian blames any religion for our problem since our judgement is not as impaired as yours.

I agree with your assessment, brother. Ethiopian Muslims as well as Christians should reject any type of extremism from the outside world, and both should refrain from inflammatory comments that will cultivate resentment between the two. We have more to gain from being able to live in peace as one rather than to succumb to outside influences. 

Misinformation about the demands of Ethiopian Muslims is the major problem right now. The demand of Ethiopian Muslims is crystal clear. Let's elect our own leaders, the government should stay out of religion affairs and the government should refrain from imposing its own preferred version of Islam in Ethiopia. Do you see any extremism in that request? Aren't those rights the same rights that our Christian fellow compatriots deserve? Don't you want to elect your own Patriarch? Don't you want to see the government stop meddling in your religious affairs? Would you keep quite if the government promotes Catholic Christianity in the expense of Ethiopian Ortodox faith?

So all these muslims demonstrations every Friday and all those threatning videos supporting Alqaida and the building of all those thousend of mosques is the fault of Christians after all? Wow!!! You peaceful muslims never make mistakes.

I wouldnt be surprised if these hateful comments towards muslims is coming from WHITE people and not from Ethiopians, infact, it is coming from WHITE people, because last time when the ethiopian police killed four muslims, it was the Ethiopian Christians that came to defend their Ethiopian brothers and sisters in albeit being muslims. White people are the devils, and their goal has always been to turn nation against nation and people against people. Ethiopians, these evil white albino devils do not care about you one bit, they cant stand the fact that Africa for the first time in hundreds of years is rising like a pheonix, the African Economy is booming and our people are finally slowly but surely getting on their two feet. So they created AFRICOM, another operation to keep the war going in Africa and forever keep us weak, and remain beggers, who keep these white demons. Their NGOS and all the western created organizations is their to making money off of our suffering people in Africa. The white devils want to keep us fighting among each other because this is how these evil people profit. Their only means to put meals on their illegitamate childrens table who are born out of wedlock, is by starting wars between people so they can make money off of us. They have exploited Africa far too long, and have kept Africans to remain hungry and dependent on the white devils, it is time we Stand up to these white devils Africans and lets kick these demons straight to where they came from. HELL. Kick them all out of Africa, they are not good for us or for anyone for that matter. South Americans did and look at them today, their economy is booming and their is hope that the South Americans will prosper.

Very well said. Iam not an Ethiopian, but, I think the Ethiopians in Ethiopia are less brainwashed unlike the ones in the west who have been brainwashed by the white devils into believing tht their Ethiopian muslim brothers and sisters are a threat to them. I believe it was zenawi who said "the white people do not want to see Africa rising". And I will add that the white people do not want to see any dark skinned nations rising and doing better then them. Heck, look at how they pick on Rwanda, Malawi, Nigeria Erittrea and Zimbabwe. And these are predominantly Christian nations, RT report a while ago how the west is waging secret war with Latin America A CHRISTIAN nation may I add. They dont care about your religion, their primary goal has been to keep all of us down. The African nations I have listed are very successful nations with highly educated people and they cant stand it. So they attack their leaders who worked hard and are still working hard to educate their people, and build strong institutions and a strong functioning nations. They want us to remain dependent on them. The white mans new tactic is he created religious frictions, because all his other tactics have failed. I just hope the Ethiopian government understands this, the first steps Africans have taken is siding with the Chinese. I hope Africans say no to Western/European aid and kick out every single NGO and so called humanitarian organizations as they are all spies and CIA agents who are there to keep the African problem going.
