Concealing  the Amara Genocide Is Promoting Amara  Massacre!

Except a few, Ethiopian radio hosts, television broadcasters, website masters, and newspaper editors, reporters and other journalists  have failed to fulfill their professional duties!

By Belayneh Abate

Abebech Shiferaw, a 49-year-old widow whose house was burned to the ground during the attacks, with her child.

Since many of you believe and trust the reports of  Westerners, but you have hard time of believing your eyes and the voices of genocide survivor Amaras, I request you to read the reports of Washington Post and Globe and Mail about the atrocities [1-2] committed on Amaras and other Ethnic Ethiopians. In its July 19, 220 edition, the Globe and Mail  reported that the mobs in Shashemene were marching carrying machetes to attack residents, whose ethnicity was identified and  listed.  Similar to what happened to the residents of Shashemene,  the Hitler sympathizers went through the neighborhoods of German towns  and villages to color code the houses of the Jewish residents. Targeting these color coded houses, the army of Hitler massacred the Jewish residents. It appears that the mob armies supported by the rulers and “security” apparatus of the Southern, Southwestern, Eastern and Central Ethiopia has similar list of Amaras and other ethnic groups to commit what the Hitler army had committed.  One of the Amara genocide survivor of this  mob armies said, “they did not just make me homeless-they broke my will to live“.  This voice is one of the heart-breaking voices I heard many times from the Jewish holocaust survivors.

It is inhumane  for journalists, TV reporters, radio hosts, website masters, newspaper editors, and anyone who can breathe to ignore and cover up​  the  genocide of Amaras and other ethnic groups in Ethiopia. As a doctor could kill a man if he is negligent and fail to diagnosis the man’s serious disease early, many radio hosts, television broadcasters, website masters, and newspaper editors are worsening the Amara genocide because they are becoming negligent in their professional duty, and  they are failing to call the Amara massacre by its real name-Amara genocide as early as possible. On the other hand these radio, television, u-tube, website and newspaper reporters do not tired of reporting about the dresses of celebrities,  planting trees and the damn dams as they are  more valuable than the respected father and businessman who was brutally killed, hanged, and then  pulled down and dragged on the street of Arusi Negele, not because of what the this gentle man did but because of who he was.

Although the rights of Amaras to live  in certain regions of Ethiopia has been denied for decades,  opportunists, traitor intellectuals, some radio and television hosts, webmasters, new paper editors  and religious leaders are piling up dirt to cover up the ongoing Amara genocides.  It appears these heartless individuals are waiting for  the massacre of a million people in weeks to call it a genocide. They do NOT want to admit that  “a genocide begins with the killing of one man – not for what he has done but because of who he is.”  as Kofi Annan said. [1]

It is playing a game upon God, humans’ soul, conscience, the truth and history to deny the multiple incidents of Amara Genocides that have been committed for more than three decades. Even the deniers of the Amara genocide know that thousands of Amaras have been  slaughtered not  for what they have done but because of who they are.

As facts on the ground show, the Amara genocide did not start with one man as Kofi Anna lectured. The Amare genocide started with extermination of  hundreds and thousands of Amaras. Count the number of Amaras eliminated in Wolkait, Raya, Bedeno, Arbagugu, Arisi negele, Metekle, Gura Ferda, Wolega, Illubabor, Keffa and many other places for the last 42 years. Count the number of Amara infants, children, women, youth and elderly massacred in the Eastern, Western, Southern and Central parts of Ethiopia in October, 2019 and June, 2020.  

Despite the overwhelming evidences about the Amara genocides, many inhumane traitors are piling up trash to cover up these genocides. Covering up genocide perpetuates series episodes of Genocides. Because we failed to address the Amara genocide for more than three decades, and no one was held accountable, the Amara genocide escalated within the last three years.  By covering up the past and the ongoing Amara genocide, the traitor Amaras are perpetuating series of genocides on their own people that cultivated them like the flowers of a garden.  

Traitor Amaras are not the first traitors that participated in the cover up of genocide on their own races. Some Jewish soldiers  served Hitler during the Jewish genocide.[4-5] Even when Hitler wiped out  their own family members, these traitor soldiers continue to serve the armies of  Nazis.[4-5] Similarly, the high-ranking rulers of the so-called Amara National Democratic Movement (ANDM) continue to  serve the different racist liberation fronts organized to establish their own republics on the graves of Amaras. 

In addition to ranking-members of ANDM, some traitor Amaras preach you that you must hide the genocide to prevent further escalation of Amara genocide. These traitors are like the fool and the coward man who told his friend  to keep quiet when a merciless hyena detached one of his lower limbs like a branch of a tree. The fool man thought  the scavenger hyena will show mercy and leave the other limb and the rest of  his body for him if his friend stops his effort to save his life. The traitors forgot that the beasts that commit genocide everywhere in the world  have no conscience like the scavenger hyena that detached the leg of the fool man.

Still other idiot- traitors tell you to hide the genocide for the co-existence of ethnic groups. This justification  is a retarded thinking for the following reasons:

Firstly, the traitors are preaching Amaras to lie to their conscience, to lie to other people, to lie to history and to lie to God.

Secondly, it is just like advising someone to hide his life-threatening disease to anyone, including his family and his physician, until the disease finishes him up. If the life-threatening disease is not diagnosed and treated early, the chance of survival is almost zero. If you do not recognize genocide as soon as it starts, it will continue to escalate further as we have seen it in the cases of the Amara genocide.

Thirdly, this retarded thinking comes from the traitors’ fallacious assumption that the ethnic group where the barbaric genocide actors hailed from are also responsible for the genocide. In the history of genocides, no entire ethnic or race had participated or supported any genocide. In most of the genocides, only a small proportion of  that race or ethnic group participated or supported genocide. Majority of Germans and Houtous were against Genocide and they had tried to save the victims of the genocides. That is why only those who designed, financed, propagated,  lead, and committed the genocide are still hunted and forced to face justice.

As cover ups never buried the Jewish, Rwandan, Armenian or other genocides, no one can cover up Amara genocide for ever and ever. Only a few people admitted the Jewish, Rwandan or Armenian genocides during or  right away after the genocides were committed. In fact, this late admission of the genocides was one of the major contributors for  the massacre of millions of innocent lives. In order to save the lives of millions, you the despicable traitors please stop covering up the Amara genocides.

As history teaches, governments and the world ignore massacres as they happen, and they talk about it after the genocide is committed. To make the hypocrisy of the governments worse , the Ethiopia opportunists and traitors are pulling their dirty blankets to coverup Amara genocides. Therefore,  conscientious Amaras and responsible citizens should:

  1. List the names of Amaras, Gurages and others who have been massacred because of who they are. Compile the lists of genocide victims as the Jewish people have compiled the names of Jewish Holocaust victims.
  2. Identify those who design, finance, propagate, lead and commit genocide and make them face justice. Heinous criminals, who committed and supported the Jewish  genocide have been facing justice for more than 75 years. Amara souls have equal value like other souls, and Amara genocide criminals, including those who have died should face justice in absentia for the genocides they committed on Amaras.
  3. Keep list of traitor Amaras who are actively participating in committing and covering up Amara genocides.
  4. Inform the Amara people that they are still at risk of multiple cycles of genocides as long as the stupid constitution, ethnic liberation fronts, and ethnic based rules exist.
  5. Understand that anyone or any group that commit suicide do not understand respect, patience and begging.
  6. Organize Amara on firm foundation to protect themselves from the ongoing genocides.
  7. Remind Amaras not to forget that cowards will chase them further if they run away from them.
  8. Rebuild their ancestral culture and tradition of heroism, not to attack others, but to fiercely defend themselves.
  9. Educate Amaras not to attack anyone, but to defend fiercely themselves.
  10. Learn genocide survival tactics and strategies from the Jewish people and others who survived genocides.
  11. Insist every Amara and any responsible citizen to contribute anything she or he can to stop Amara genocide.
  12. Spread the well-experienced Amara diplomats throughout the globe to raise awareness about the ongoing Amara genocide.

Concealing  the Amara Genocide Is Promoting Amara  Massacre! Stop Concealing  the Amara Genocide! Thank you.

  1. God bless you, Dr. Belayneh Abate. I am a regular reader of your great contributions in Amharic and English. You said it all; there is nothing I can add.

    Keep it up!!!

  2. Saying it is a genocide is not enough . Immediate practical actions are highly needed.

  3. Belayneh Abate (A.K.A TADM) is the Jawar Mohamed wannabe of the North trying to mimic Jawar false claims of Oromo genocide perpetrated by Amharas just to see what happens for sake of individual satisfaction. The wax and gold is that it’s Wednesday’s installment of the flip side of the Monday sermon “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor” is the ninth commandment of the Ten Commandments, which are widely understood as moral imperatives by scholars. Presently, many traditions and cultures particularly we Ethiopians retain a distinction between lying in general versus perjury. On reflection, however, it’s additional example of one more cheap or wicked (depending where you stand on the Ethiopian political spectrum) lawyer talk. No big deal.

  5. Belayneh fake name does not pass the smell test. Cow dung cannot be collected where no cow has been.
    Fails to answer simple questions when making such enormous accusations: when, where, how many, what are their names, who are you and what’s your role in the genocide? Where you a witness or an actor? How do we know you’re not a secret TPLF agent or a deceitful and tricky lawyer or both? These are legitimate questions must be fully accounted for in order to accept such a loaded use of ‘genocide.” Truth matters. Be honest to oneself is more important than the fakery truth telling to power. A fool will pair an elephant with an ox. Where there is no shame, there cannot be any honor. Regret, like a tail, comes at the end. Repentance and tails are always behind one, No one can know what the new day will bring. . Unless you call out, who will open the door?

  6. Entoto
    የአማራ ነፍስ እንደ አንተ ዓይነቱ በታቺ ቀርቶ በአፉ diarrhea ለሚለቅ ታናሽ ፍጡር መጨዋቻ ይሁን?
    ጠብቅ!

  7. Alula, Ethio, Entoto the stool/feces , Lalibela are denying Amara genocide as Hitiller followers dened jew genocide.

    Stand Amara United and uproot the weeds.

  8. Taye, Girma,

    አንተ ቀጣፊ ሊባ አገር አጥፊ ቅዘን የት ልተደርስ ነው? ተረጋጋ

  9. Genocide must be condemned in any form. Belayneh Abate has written biased facts of Amhara genocide only. What about Tigrayeans genocide committed by Amhara extremists in Gondar in 2016 and 2017?

    Belayneh has failed to acknowledge what happened in Gondar genocide against Tigrayeans and Kemant.

    Truth and all lives matter!

  10. Tekle

    Almost all of the victims in the genocide of Wolqait and Raya are Amaras, not Tigres or kemants as you try to say they are.

  11. A. Engidasew

    You are in denial of the facts. Not only Amharas experienced genocide or repression but also Tigrayeans and iThe ethnic groups in Gondar. Violence, killing and ethnic cleansing against Tigrayeans and other ethnic groups is 3-4 years events.

    Justice, truth and fair historical events must be told unbiased not a distorted narrative that deny what happened in Gondar. Are you living in 18 century or 21 century era.
