<quoted text> 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? 
I understand and the question that has been raised by our Muslim brothers and sisters are a Legitimate question, and with in their Constitutional l right.
However, I would also like to add that, you may want to review the video I posted earlier. Despite all our agreement or disagreement in opinion,the rise of Muslim extremism in Ethiopia today is Undeniable.there has been several indication that might possibly lead Ethiopia in critical religious conflict. However, I would like to underline there are opportunity to learn the disadvantages of extremism . We need to see and learn from those countries that are diminish by adapting extremism ideas.

Like the guy in one of the post here stated, I guess you being in breed within your own keens and you being the result, I guess, your IQ must have been affected to come with such a percentage. I suppose, you do not know how to add and divide and get the average. Even taking you Saudi or arabs wish list of how the present demographic percentage is, seems like a typical jihadist islamist you will not come closer to the percentage you gave us. But then, how can one judge you, since your pea brain seems in its dreamworld of handing in Ethiopia to those rug head, child molesters arabs. Fact is that if you add all the numbers and divide them by 8. what you get is 47.25%, which way below your wish list of percentage. Learn how to do a simple math before you put down your wish list

Instead of fighting over stupid religion, Ethiopians should focus on getting rid of their common enemy the ruthless minority weyane regime.

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.
I agree 100%. You see paranoid whites spouting hatred on every social media against all others. It would be a waste of oxygen to detail the horrors of what these devil white people have done against others especially blacks.

whats white at the top and black at the bottom? society It was easy for me to understand why the egalitarians were opposed to the studies showing that IQ is mostly hereditary, for it turns out that Blacks usually do very poorly on IQ tests. The natural inference is that if IQ is primarily inherited, and Blacks have dramatically lower IQs, then the differences between the races are likely to be genetic.

I found that there are hundreds of studies documenting the IQ differences between Blacks and Whites. Dr. Audrey Shuey, in her comprehensive work The Testing of Negro Intelligence, compiled more than 300 different IQ studies comparing Black and White intelligence. They found that average Black IQ scores are between 15 and 20 points lower than White averages -- in scientific terms, they vary between one and one and one-half standard deviations [SD] below Whites.

The fact that dramatic IQ differences exist between Blacks and Whites can also be illustrated by the fact that Black activist groups have outlawed ability grouping in many schools, claiming that it "resegregates the schools." In California it is even forbidden to use IQ tests to aid in the selection of students who would benefit from special classes for the educable mentally retarded. A courageous Black mother sued the state in an attempt to overturn the law so that her retarded child could get the remedial help she needed. In the Larry P. v. Wilson Riles case, the judge ruled that the tests were biased simply because more Blacks attained very low scores. Thus in the State of California it became official policy that the tests, along with ability grouping in education, are "racist" and forbidden merely because Black performance is substantially lower than that of Whites. The case affords an excellent example of how efforts to artificially "equalize" the races can harm both Whites and Blacks.

Man walks into a bar with his pit bull on a leash and asked the bartender, "Do you serve monkeys?"
"Sure we do," replied the bartender.
"Good," said the man. "I'll have a beer, and give me a monkey for the pit bull."
