Mandera the war for Somalian repartition between Ethiopia and Kenya

The recent armed clash between Ethiopian, Kenyan and Somali resistance fighters in the regional strategically city of Mandera has rekindled the long waited regional war of the horn Africa. It is a Somali city located at the cross road between the three countries:  Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. Mandera was a central meeting point for all   Ogadeans before the Scramble for Africa in 1880’s that divide them with artificial boarders. This the time bomb set by colonial powers that  divided  people of the region by artificial imaginary lines, thus separating  families of the same clan.


When we talk about the Ogaden region of Ethiopia we have tenancy to forget the name Ogaden given to the region is a tribal name inside Somali populated region of Ethiopia. Today the whole region is named Somali region by the Ethiopian dictator Melese Zenawie since 1991.  This is conspiracy against the Somalis by creating a condition similar to Balkans, where there is a country Macedonia and a region with the same name inside Greek. While there is already country called Somalia there is need to create another Somalia. The main purpose to name such ethnical region is to accelerate the dismemberment of Somalia itself.  Another point to be raised it is not only in Ethiopia that Ogaden exists, but also in Kenya- the western Somali populated region of Kenya is also inhabited with same tribes of Ogadeni.

On the 24th of February the Ethiopian mechanized forces supporting the newly trained Somali mercenaries are fighting the Somali insurgents not far from the border town of Mandera supported with heavy weapons.  Melese Zenawie government has been involvement in Somali internal affairs since his accession to power in Ethiopia. He had officially started in its invasion of Somali in 2006 which he left after shameful defeat replacing himself with Burundi and Ugandan troops with the umbrella of the African Unity peace keepers. Both countries running UN resolved eternal ethnic rivalry and armed insurgency in their own land.   The Melese Zenawie mercenary troops have just been caught in Tripoli and Bengasi supporting the falling killer of Libya and Cyrenaica, Mohammed Gaddafi.

The Ethiopian troops are firing missiles to ensure the newly trained Somali mercenary troops are successfully deployed in Somalia to destabilize the already fragile   country in the name of fighting “Islam extremism.” It is just a pretext to keep himself in power like Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Ben Ali of Tunisia. Melese Zenawie is trying to divert the world attention to the newly open conflict on the cross road city of Mandera.

The Ethiopian dictatorial regime of Melese Zenawie has been training 2,000 Somali mercenaries since late 2009 to accomplish the unfinished job of Balkanizing Somalia to different factions. Melese has agreed to let Juba land to pass in the hands of Kenya, while unsuccessfully attempted to control Mogadishu. Since the fall of the central state of Somalia in 1989, Somaliland and Putland have already defacto declared their independence.

The border fighting for the reparation of Somalia between Kenya and Ethiopia has spilled over to the Kenyan town of Mender last Thursday. The tension was high in Mandera County since Wednesday morning as fears of spill-over of the fighting grip residents of Mandera town.

The fist bomb exploded at the Mandera District hospital on Thursday as heavy fighting continued between the different faction to control the border key town between Somalia rebels fighting against Ethiopian troops and their mercenaries with the support of Kenya fighting to control her Ogadeni region of Western territories. Local reporters have seen wounded Kenyans are rushed to be treated for bullet wounds while the authorities are denying their involvement in the conflict to control Somalia.

Kenya has increased its contingent by moving an army battalion around Mandera Town.

The conflict has reached the Kenyan border towns stretching to Kilima Fisi up to Hulugo Somalia Juba land crossing point near Lamu. These are the intersectional crossing to between the three borderline countries.

Beside the regular army Kenya just deployed security team comprising Kenya Army’s Rangers and Special Forces detachments, as well as the General Service Unit and Administration Police.

Two severely and four other Kenyan soldiers were also wounded.  While Kenya like Ethiopia has trained its Somalis mercenaries, it won’t be long before the conflict spill over to Kenyan Somali region like Ogaden of Ethiopia.

 

According to the Kenyan minimizing news media:-

“One woman has been reported dead at Border Point One and 10 casualties are being treated at Mandera District Hospital,” Kenya Red Cross Secretary General Abbas Gullet said in a statement.

He said the fighting that started at about 10am on Friday did not spare the Red Cross offices where several gun shots were fired, but no casualty was reported.

“Several gunshots flying in the air across the border have hit the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) offices in Mandera, where six members of staff are holed up, like many other residents of Mandera town,” Mr Gullet said.

“The gunshots have rocked the town, keeping residents and refugees indoors,” he said.

The Society’s Spokesman Titus Mung’ou said the situation had put the lives of humanitarian workers and other residents of Mandera town in grave danger.

“We have reported this latest incident to the Government and hope the KRCS offices, which have a Red Cross emblem flag hoisted on the rooftop, will be protected,” he said.

The Red Cross emblem is a protected symbol, under the Geneva Conventions, and all warring parties are required to respect it, he added.

“Hundreds of refugees are now scattered on the Kenyan side of the border, as it is risky to gather in camps until fighting ceases,” he said.

Hundreds of families began fleeing Mandera town Friday following the intense fighting that has been going on at the Kenya-Somalia border since Wednesday.

Reports from Mandera indicate that schools, government offices and hospitals had been shut for stray ammunition that has been hammering the border town.

A councilor who spoke to Capital News from Mandera said although no physical attacks had occurred in the town, residents were worried of the bullets that “are being fired from various directions whenever the troops are fighting the militiamen.”

On Thursday morning, eight people were struck by bullets fired by militia men who have been fighting AU troops on the Somalia side.

“It is scaring, you cannot know when a bullet will land near you and that is why people are running for safety,” the councilor who only identified himself as Ahmed said.

“Some houses have gone up in flames since morning and we don’t know who are burning them but we highly suspect it has something to do with what is going on at the border,” Ahmed added.

He said Mandera town remained deserted for the better part of Friday and only military and police trucks were seen parked strategically with heavily armed officers.

“People are running towards remote areas far away from Mandera, we don’t want to become victims,” he added “This place now is inhabitable, there are heavy gunfire renting the air every after a couple of hours.

The situation was made worse when a bomb was hurled at the Mandera district hospital but no one was hurt because it landed on an open field.

North Eastern Provincial Commissioner Joseph ole Serian told Capital News that the bomb could have caused a major disaster “were it not that it landed on an open field.”

“The hospital covers a large area, we are lucky it landed on an open ground, it could have been disastrous,” ole Serian said on telephone from where he was coordinating security.

Some 14 African Union soldiers flown from Mogadishu were still admitted to hospitals in Mombasa where they have been receiving treatment for bullet wounds since Thursday.

Military Spokesman Bogita Ongeri told Capital News they had enhanced security at the border towns to stop  Al-Shabaab fighters from liberating from controlling western Kenya.

The Kenyan soldiers fought the Somali resistance fighters who had tried to stop them from controlling the Somali region of Kenya seven were injured.

The best and the lasting solution for the region is  non ignorance in the internal affair of Somalis by the different  neighboring counties  like Ethiopia and Kenya in order not further  radicalize the situation.

The strategic city of Mandera would be the Waterloo of Melese Zenawie and the Kenyan election killers who are trying to divert the internal situation to this undue conflict by calling for   intervention the  embattled western  forces  in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Reign of Museveni in Uganda prolongs for 3 decades…

Yoweri Museveni Uganda’s longtime president reconfirms his domino by wining 68 per cent of votes in Friday’s poll, allowing him to extend his 25-year hold on power. The Election Commission of Uganda declared that the main challenger Kizza Besigye took 26 per cent of the vote, but the top opposition leader alleged the election was fraudulent and rejected the results for the third time.

Political power conquered through the barrel a gun has never been relinquished   by democratic process.  Museveni once insurgent commander who seized power at the head of a guerrilla army in 1986, used to  criticize African rulers who clung to power has now confirmed the rest of the international rebels who took power in Asia( China, Vietnam, Cambodia), Africa ( Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia, Angola, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Latin America(Cuba Nicaragua won back by election). Thus to this day, from Ethiopia down to Rwanda, Zimbabwe passing Angola, Armed Liberation Front leaders are still in power, aided by powerful armies and a ruthless readiness to use violence once they fought for. Democracy has reached in some African nations those received independence through colonial pacts since the fall of the Iron curtain. From Countries which conquered their liberty under the barrel of the gun, very few could be mention who saw the light of democracy:  Tanzania, South Africa-Namibia; others are suffering under authoritarian leaders who have clung to power.

Musevini’s opponent was personal doctor and a long time comrade in struggle Mr. Besigye has previously threatened Egypt-style protest, but on Sunday, he declared that he was still considering other options. But on Sunday, Mr. Besigye pledged to work “to bring an end to the illegitimate government.”

But he stopped short of calling for street protests. Mr. Museveni said last week he would jail anyone who tried to spark Egypt-style unrest.

Mr. Besigye said widespread bribery, ballot-stuffing and harassment rendered the poll illegitimate.

“[We] reject the outcome of the elections,” Mr. Besigye said Sunday. “[We] reject the leadership of Mr. Yoweri Museveni.”

Foreign election observers said that there had been serious flaws with the voting process and the campaign. They said state resources were used to skew the elections in Mr. Museveni’s favor.

“The power of incumbency was exercised to such an extent as to compromise severely the level playing field between the competing candidates,” said Edward Scicluna, head of the European Union monitoring mission.

While previous election campaigns were marred by violence against opposition candidates, observers say Mr. Museveni allowed opposition candidates a freer hand to campaign this year, following the example of Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia assuring his post in advance.

The Ugandan voters went to the ballot boxes on Friday knowing there is little chance of a defeat for President Yoweri Museveni. Uganda’s opposition leaders have warned of Egypt-inspired revolts in the streets if the election is rigged, but analysts don’t expect them to make a dent in the rule of Mr. Museveni, a former general who maintains a strong grip on the army.

Many commentators believe that the people-power revolutions of North Africa will not spread to the rest of Africa. They dare to confirm that the Revolution is often a luxury of an educated middle class, and much of Africa is too rural and too poor to sustain a national uprising.  But such type of analysis   seems short of memory and very reductionist when it comes to sub Saharan Africa.  They forgot Ethiopia of 1974 predominately peasant society brought down half a century old Dynasty from power. The same was with Uganda and Ruanda the revolt started in the cities and went to the country side and started armed struggle with farmers and other Ethnic groups.

The other factor very often cited is African technological factor, that the Internet access is still relatively low in most of Africa. In 1960’ Kenya revolt of the Mao Mao did not need any kind of technological support to execute such in human massacre, and that of Congo rebellion led by Patrice Lumba had no other communication means but mouth to the ear but threw the Belgium out.  The other stereotype is that ethnic and religious divisions considered as a huge obstacle to the organization of national protests. They forget the inverse is also true that ethnicity has been a base of organization as we have seen in liberation struggle in 1960 against the one and the same enemy unjust domination of any kind internal or external. If we take for example the subjugation by a minority in power the rest of the majority groups could create a solidarity which surpasses ethic cleavage   as seen in the past for liberation struggles all over Africa. Today its seems the minority in power will further t sustain power without baying out the  majority which are enrolled  in the army belongs to other tribes men like  in Uganda, Rwanda and Ethiopia… but not for long.

Except Algeria the Arab world came to independence with a colonial pact followed by free officers military coup e.g., Libya, Egypt, Syrian mid 50’s.  In 1960’w Africa was going to liberation struggle while these countries were under military rule after reversing the Kingship put in place by leaving colonial powers.  The new Social Media Protests in the Arab world is the first revolution they are going though in their post independence period.

“The president is a military man. The Vice President is a military man. The Prime Minister is a military man and I think if you really want to build confidence, you need to engage the rest of the Egyptian people, the civilians and that’s why I suggested that we should have a transitional period where a presidential counsel of three people including the military should run things and transitional government.”

On 27 January 2011, Mohamed ElBaradei returned to Egypt amid the biggest mass protest in the country since the military came to power in the country in 1952. In his words as “agent of change and an advocate for democracy” which had begun two days earlier, on 25 January 2011 folowing the tradtion of his father protesting the Egyptian military dictator at its outset. ElBaradei declared himself ready to lead a transitional government if that was the will of the nation, saying that: “If [people] want me to lead the transition, I will not let them down”.[55] Subsequently, “when he joined protesters Friday after noon prayers, police fired water cannons at him and his supporters. On 28 January 2011, ElBaradei was reported to have been placed under house arrest in Egypt. He joined Tahrir Square with the rest of the protestors against Mubarak regime and spoke directly to the people, stating that they “have taken back their  rights” and that they cannot go back.

His arrival became controversial largely because of the long periods of time he has spent outside of the country.

ElBaradei  a born lawyer  raised in Cairo,  from a family of  attorney Mostafa ElBaradei who was in permanent  confronting with the Egyptian Military government led Gamal Abdel Nasserby as a head of the  strong  Egyptian Bar Association. He grew up with a militant father  fighting for  democratic rights,  free press and  legal system in Egypt .

He masters like most of the Egyptian of  his generation, English, and French, and off course Arabic his mother tongue. He studied law in Cairo University  and like the author of the article studied in  Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva Switzerland.    1964  up unto 1980 worked in the Egyptian  Ministry of External Affairs,  while working for his country be able to graduated in in International Law at the New York University School of Law in 1974..

ElBaradei  became  the  Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency based in Vienna starting  December 1, 1997 up to November 2009.

October 7, 2005, ElBaradei and the IAEA as an organization were announced as joint recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize for their “efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy, for peaceful purposes, is used in the safest possible way”.

Arabian Social Tsunami is grooving Djibouti before the long coming Ethiopian uprising

The Social Tsunami that swept the Arabian world has just reached the Horn of Africa.  Thousands of demonstrators engulfed the divided dictatorial regime of Djibouti demanding the t president Ismail Omar Guelleh, the close friend of the Ethiopian killer Melese Zenawie to resign. This latest in a series will not leave Ethiopian untouched. The Melese Zenawie has already started tightening security around the universities and high schools.

In the capital Djibouti thousands of police are deployed around, the demonstrators gathered at a stadium on Friday with the intention of staying there until their demands were met.

At dusk the confrontation   escalated into clashes, as the security forced used batons and tear gas against stone-throwing protesters and sum shooting also being heard.

Omar Guelleh after serving two terms accepted advice of his friend Melese Zenawie the Ethiopian dynastic ruler, two present himself for the third time in April in the coming election in April. He changed in the constitution   to assure his third unlimited term.

Three opposition parties has joined the protestations   and demanded the embattled Dictator to step down.  Ismael Guedi Hared spoke in the meeting for sustained protestation till the dictator leave power.

The principal opposition leader Abdurrahman Boreh gave his support for the protestors from his forced exile in Briton.

Omar Gullah has been in power two years more than Mubarak in the tiny republic where politic is divided between the Afars and the Somali   tribesmen since independence in 1977.

The Little Eastern African country would have been taken out by the Somalian syndrome without the French and American strong military presence.

In Djibouti the protest started 3 day after the Egyptian uprising. Still passed unnoticed every Friday prayers since January 28 the demonstrations continue reaching now a climax to a sustained protest in the central stadium. For Djiboutian standards there is a high turnout of protestors seeing the nomadic nature of the population.

The 63-year-old Guelleh is preparing to win the coming April vote applying the methodology of his neighbor Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian dictator suspecting any time soon a mass explosion his starving subjects    the same ways as the revolution that swept away the 45 year old regime of the Emperor Haile Selasse in 1974.




Nile river at the mercy of a dictatorial dam expected to dry by impoundment risking millions in Egypt

The  genocidal Dictator Melese Zenawie started his construction of the long waited  Megalomaniac dams at the expense of  Ethiopian inhabitants and its environment with  the rest of the riparian states. Especially Egypt,  a country in  full uprising  since the 25th of January 2011 against the three decade Ethiopian type  dictator and almost   60 years military rule. The Ethiopian dictator benefiting Egyptians internal crisis is rushing  to build his destructive dams. These dams are mainly for the land grabbers and enrichment of the dictator and his equip. The local and regional population needs a human level construction to secure the continual flow of  waters,  the save guard of their human and natural  environment.

The New Massive Dam is being constructed by the Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation in Benishangul state, very close to the Sudanese border. Sudan and Egypt the traditional stake  holders are  immediately concerned as water of  the Nile waters dwindling  by megalomaniac dams.  These  countries are today caught in the internal convolutions. Sudan is taken by internal division and secession while Egypt is consumed by revolution.

The megalomaniac destructive dam on the Blue Nile construction has been awarded to the same Italian construction company that built the Gilgel Gibe II and Tana Beles dams Salini Costruttori SPA.  The Ethiopian dictator has been criticized   awarding the projects without a competitive national tender, in violation of its own procurement guidelines.  The company has already begun deploying heavy construction machinery to the site to start the project. The so called  “project x”  power plant will have an electric generation capacity of 6,000MW, which has any utility for the  imitate use local population except the multinational foreign land grabbers, and to increase the dictators financial  resources to maintain power in Ethiopia at the expense  environmental destruction and provocation of  water shortage in riparian countries.  The Dictatorial regime have forcedly displaced the local population of the region in order not have resistance and immediate revolt th hand to build these deadly dams.

.

The dam is expected to take at least five years to be completed,  in the these period of time  the Ethiopian  dictator   will surely  not be there to celibate the end of the project.

The genocidal dictator  has already three other power plants, which have been under construction in the past few years waiting to be finished  before the fall of the regime following the northern Africa uprising  which will soon swipe Ethiopia.

Ethiopian dictator dreams to become an African powerhouse due to its high hydropower potential. However,   the highland is situated on volatile volcanic moving tectonic plates. Building a dam in the highland plateau will endanger the lives of millions in down river countries with a disastrous effect to its local inhabitants.

The dictator  2009 declare that the less than 10 percent of Ethiopians had access to electricity and the country is  plagued by power outages. The genocidal dictator used the pretext of the countries power shortage kindled by his own blackouts to get support for his megalomaniac schemes. Ethiopia is a  country which is not  embarked  industrialization does not need such amount of electric power.  Over 85 % the population is traditional farmers struggling   to survive. They can develop alternative and environment friendly project with less than the quarter of the money spend in these projects. The irredentist dictator is using the pretext  of  water  power  and famine  for its own end to control the impoverished Ethiopians.

The successful completion of this dams  is hoped to support the project of land grabbers in  areas where the population is  displaced areas to produce   to 8,000 MW from the current rate of 2000 MW. Ethiopian dictator is planning to control the livelihood of  countries of the region by his massive killer  dams.

According to the dictator  the benefits of the dams are not limited to hydro power, many dams are multi-purpose dams that are also designed to provide water for irrigation and flood control.

The dictator is building all Ethiopia’s power plants in the two main rivers of the Horn of Africa the Nile and the Omo River basin the home of many traditional societies, where their entire livelihood depends on them. Furthermore, both rivers are shared with Ethiopia’s neighbors and for none of them an international water sharing agreement exists were not signed in pre or post colonial, except the Nile.  However, Ethiopian dictatorial regime  is not a constructive participant in the Nile Basin Initiative.  It wen even far by  declaring  recently war against Egypt  just before 25 January revolt in Cairo.

The dictator is warned by the environmentalist that  hydropower impoundment  reduces water  flow for a prolonged period if not permanently, since Ethiopia is located in highland volcanic crater with  hundreds  of underground  volcanic tunnels  where  water infiltration is evident.   In Ethiopia   evaporation from the reservoir surfaces constitutes a permanent loss of water from the river though it is less than downstream in Egypt and Sudan.  The worst is the irrigation which consumes water in quantities for newly grabbed commercial farms. Thus making it unavailable for  downstream population in Egypt, Kenya and Sudan.

The Ethiopia  has no agreement with Egypt or Sudan about the sharing of the Nile’s water, but has an international  and local responsibilities not to abuse water resources for multinational companies that their only objective is to increase their  benefit from their investment in the Land Grapping . Egypt says that its historic water rights would be violated by dams in Ethiopia and that its water security would be affected one way another by such dams in pre revolutionary period. The dictator’s response is ready to go to war than negotiate. Egypt and Sudan concluded a water sharing treaty in 1959. The agreement does not consider the water rights of other Nile riparian states and has never been recognized by Ethiopia.  The dams will reduce the flow of water to Sudan and Egypt permanently. And will stop the traditional flooding for Egyptian traditional farmers in the Nile. And will destroy the Omotic population in Southern Ethiopia. In Kenya the Lake Turkana will cease to exist by creating unnecessary drought which we have started  to show its effect recently  in northern Kenya.

In one of  recent  studies, assuming an evaporation rate of one meter per year, an irrigated area of 200,000 hectares and a combined reservoir area of 1,000 square kilometers, the flow of the Nile could be reduced by three billion cubic meters per year, equivalent to about 5 percent of the current allocation of Egypt under the 1959 agreement. But Ethiopia has sold and selling  millions of hectares to the land grabber which will reduce the water which crosses the high land plateau to zero.

The Omo River flowing to  Kenya has been expressed concerns about downstream impacts on Lake Turkana eventually even drying due to direct impact of the upstream  dams.  The most prominent environmental organizations like Friends of Lake Turkana and International Rivers challenged the project in terms of its ecological destruction. The Doctor Richard Leaky    the known paleoanthropologist have taken a strong stand against the damming the river OMO by demonstrating its negative effects in the totality of the regional ecosystem.

Since the creation of artificial post colonial Arab states by Laurence of Arabia in the early 19th century for the benefit of the leaving colonial powers , the mass was set to sleep in long hibernation.  The dominated manipulated  sleeping giant  360 million strong Arabs are  weakling up by social Tsunami blowing  the despot  away through social media as  an arm of liberation as was guns in the  African revival in 1960’s and 70’s liberation struggle.

The new revival would eventually provoke new war in the region triggered by the Arabian night’s surviving  deposits against Iran with Israel.

The Libyan killer orders the shooting of his people over 70 innocent in the week end and lost the control of the country except the capital and the protesters cried  “Gadaffi Go Go To Africa  join the dictators”.  The worst come form century old Califa of Bahrain thinking he is in the Arabian nights orders his swards over his people.

At un  number  protesters were killed only 4 were accounted, while the number will soured over 100 in a bloody crack-down in Bahrain after tanks ordered by the Califa king entered the capital and security forces smashed a tent city in the main square, opening fire with grapeshot. The situation is fraught with risk since a Sunni monarchy minority rules a Shia majority with mixed Iranian ancestry and big ties to Tehran.

“Watch Iranian Press Tv on Bahrain Revolt”

The Saudis have already dispatched troops and equipment to put down the uprising before the social Tsunami. Iran is preparing to send two warships through the Suez Canal to support its Syrian ally led to hot words with Israel.

Kaddafi, the worst of the Arabian despot just killed cold bloody  20 people  to stop the “Day of Anger” , while there was a fifth day of violent clashes in Yemen continue menacing the to break the country to two.

Arabian revival increasing oil prices are becoming a threat to the global economy, hitting the net oil consumers of China, Europe, and Japan the most not sparing US.

Maher & Salah, SHABAB 6 APRIL Social Media bloggers led the Egyptian social Revolution that changed the country forever..

The Egyptian social Tsunami has started by a faceless face book Social Media movement known as the April 6 Movement’ has been organizing the last three years. It took the Tunisian uprising to get it a new social dynamic as spring board to start the protest.

They are the main organizers of the l upheaval that swept away the government of Hosni Mubarak.  Formed around three years ago, the loosely organized social network forum had never foreseen for itself back then a role as vehement as it holds currently.

The three years old movement started is seeds in the Egyptian workers movement similar to the polonaise movement of solidarity in 1980s but equipped with a social media at their service and disposal and younger groups than that of the Eastern Soviet satellite state in is time.

The movement was started three years ago by young internet activists Ahmed Maher and Ahmed Salah in order to mobilize support for striking industrial workers El-Mahalla El-Kubra. They used the power of media and organize people to support the cause of the workers, who were planning a strike April 6, 2008.

The young bloggers called on the supports and the participants to wear black and stay home the day of the strike. Bloggers and citizen journalists used Face book, Twitter, Flicker, blogs to inform one another and the general public about the protest.

In Egypt only about one in nine Egyptians has Internet access, and around 9 percent of that group are on Face book which make a total of 800,000 members. If we compare even that much of Ethiopians are not connected in Diaspora leave alone in the country. The recent estimate only one out 10 Ethiopian in Diaspora consult the internet today.

Under Mubrak Egyptian are legal prisoners of his system like Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia.  The only out let to the young Egyptian is the social media. Under Mubarak an estimated 18,000 Egyptians were imprisoned. The Egyptian police used to arrests people without any charges. The government has banned political organizations and makes it illegal for more than five people to gather without a license from the government. All Newspapers are monitored by the Ministry of Information in order not to criticizing Mubarak.   Thus the main base of the movement is the country’s media orientated youth, since they are the main benefiters of social media for social change.

The April 6 movement a youth coalition and says they are not political party and that it will not contest elections.

The Mubarak regime had sensed the movement back May 2008 by arresting   Maher  and found nothing tangible and realized him, and in July the same year as  a provocateur and unrest organizer then.  His co organizer of Social unrest through social media, Ahmed Salah, was finally arrested last week but it was too late to stop the volcano.

April 6 Movement Manifesto !

“We are a group of Egyptian youth brought together for the love of Egypt and the desire for reform  … Although the vast majority of us do not belong to any political trend or linked to politics , however, we are determined to complete the road, we believe we can continue from where others stopped.. We are convinced of our ability and our right to change this sad reality… We have agreed on the patriotism and sacrifice for it and the desire to reform this nation, we started on, April 6 2007 this historic day in the lives of Egyptians and Egyptian political movements, as we have with some parties and political forces called for a general strike that day to protest against the deteriorating living conditions, and we had to call for the strike by all means, including the popular Face book site, and there was a great response to the strike, where most students did not go to schools and universities that day, and most employees from different governmental sectors did not go to work, and the streets were almost empty all over the country, but the largest response to the strike was in the town of Mahalla , where Mahalla inhabitants stood against the blind stick of security ,as people took place in the mass protests ,faced the security and their tear gas and bullets, injuring dozens and killing three people and arresting hundreds of Mahalla people, despite the heated situation in the danger area Youth April 6 did not miss sharing Mahalla people their crisis and witnessing the arrogance of the security, and the violence against the people of Mahalla protesters and they also witnessed the destruction of Mahalla by thugs hired by the Security to complete the series of burning and destruction of the town of Mahalla , the castle of Egyptian industry.
Young people went out on April 6 heading towards downtown in Cairo to protest and actually a large number of April 6 youth went out to the streets that day, where some of them got arrested , and some of them continued detention for more than a month, and some were released on the same day.
Despite all that Youth April 6 refuses to surrender or retreat, they decided to complete the journey towards changing the current situation and reform the result of more than a quarter century of corruption and emergencies.
We Youth April 6 movement believe that the change and reforming of Egypt will not happen by claims or petitions, we will achieve it by providing real alternatives and real solutions to find a real alternative for political, economic and social Renaissance in Egypt that provides stability and security of the Egyptian citizen.
And we Youth April 6 movement believe that this will happen only by the move of young people – as they are the real one who will benefit from the change when it happens, as they exceed 60 % of the Egyptian population..
Our youth are the future leaders and our energy today.
And the cooperation of all political forces to unite and work together to bring about change for the reform of Egypt and get rid of the corruption, destruction and waste of wealth for more than a quarter of a century.
In the end, we do not call for a new group… Or a new party, but we call on all Egyptians (individuals – communities – parties – (dedicated in all sectors) to meet at one project: the awakening of the people to stop the unjust oppression of the corruptive gang and the elimination of corruption and despotism.
(Trying to be the conscience of our precious Egypt)

Ethiopian asylum seeker in a status limbo caught in a rising xenophobia in Norway

Norway is known traditionally  home for Ethiopian asylum seekers.    The recent position of the Norwegian office for asylum towards Ethiopian refugees is more   xenophobic  than tolerance and solidarity. Many Ethiopian Asylum seeks are languishing in status no man’s land. They live in a daily fear of deportation to the land of the dictatorial regime of Melese Zenawi in Ethiopia.  Over 50 Ethiopians forced themselves in a cold Nordic winter to camp inside an old -old cathedral to show to the world there in human situation in the country that once champion human rights. Today the growth the extreme right in the Norwegian political arena has changed  the  country’s  socio political atmosphere by increasing   Islamophilia, intolerant and widespread xenophobia.

The hopeless Ethiopians in the country who came expecting to receive asylum  are  today menaced to be deported  have  decided to camp  in this old  cathedral undergoing renovation indoors so their living conditions are far from comfortable,with a lack of sanitation facilities and cold stone floors and pews for makeshift beds.

These  inhumanly rejected  refugees refused  to eat or drink and started hunger strike in a bitter  Scandinavian weather in 400 years  old  cathedral  which seems undergone several years of major renovations, but the work is not finished yet inside because of budget constraints.

The Ethiopians found themselves between the hammer and the hard things due to the recent worming up of the Norwegian and Ethiopian regime relations after a big fall out which forced the host country to sever  diplomatic relation with the Ethiopian Dictator. The refugees are freezing with no warm water supplies, no kitchen only one half working toilet.

The Ethiopians seem determined in their cause. Around 400 of their supporters demonstrated on Monday to protest the handling of their asylum applications by Norwegian immigration officials. The rejected refugees claim they have not been evaluated individually.

“We live in fear that we’ll be sent back,” Bizualem Beza, a spokesperson for the group, told “We believe our applications haven’t been properly handled.”

Immigration authorities dispute that, with Hanne Jendal of immigration agency UDI claiming they have been thoroughly evaluated. “They have received individual and thorough treatment at all levels,” Jendal told There’s never been any collective evaluation of this group.”

Beza hopes the authorities will review their cases again. “Many of us have lived here for many years,” Beza said. “We have worked, started families and found homes. Suddenly all that may be taken away.” Beza claims the refugees fear harassment or worse back in Ethiopia because of their own or their family members’ political ties.

They are in precarious situation including some pregnant women continuing their hunger strike.

Two were taken to an emergency clinic late last week suffering from lack of nutrition and exhaustion. Church officials held Sunday services as usual and many of the Ethiopian refugees participated. On Monday, they agreed to leave the church in return for promises that they will be granted new meetings with Norwegian immigration authorities.

“The authorities wouldn’t meet us until all the demonstrators were out of the church,” Bizualem Beza, who initially functioned as a spokesman for the group, told Norwegian Broadcasting. A meeting now will be held at the office of Oslo Bishop Ole Kristian Kvarme, with representatives from the Justice Ministry and immigration agencies UDI and UNE.

The authorities have determined that the Ethiopians didn’t meet requirements for asylum and want them to return to Ethiopia. The refugees fear political reprisal back home and have refused to leave voluntarily. The Norwegians, meanwhile, have no agreements in place with Ethiopian authorities to arrange deportation, at least officially but there is an understanding.

That has left the rejected refugees in a difficult situation in Norway, as undocumented and unable to work legally, although many have managed to live in the country for years and work illegally.

Beza apologized for causing disruption for the church. “But we were so afraid and desperate,” he said, joining fellow refugees in thanking church officials, aid organizations and the media for the attention they received for their cause.

Fossilized Ethiopians came by Creation or Evolution…

The recent discovery in Ethiopia a fossil more than 3m proving that human “ ancestors” supposedly  walking upright just by finding   a single  fourth metatarsal bone in Ethiopia. Like Lucy and Ardi recently has opened the debate that humans being is the outcome of Creation or Evolution more live. The majority of Ethiopians believe  firmly in creation and they do  not  even know who Charles  Darwin was leave alone his “Theory of Evolution.” The main diffrence between a Creationist  and an  Evolutionist  could be simplified philosophically   being – I Believe and – I Think.

Researchers are hopeful that more such remains may be found as excavations continue. This specimen is being added to the growing list of species which existed 2 to 3.5 million years ago and are clearly either modern primate or modern human, one of which may have been our ancestors.

However, Creationists reject all of this. According to creationism, humans sprouted fully-formed in our current state, as did all animal “kinds” not of «species” according Evolutionists.  Like the “Theory of Evolution” the protagonist use developed their argument as a «Creation Theory”. The evolutionists criticize the creationists saying that they are a religiously motivated political movement, which is why they publish all of their “research” directly to the general public rather than letting other scientists subject it to peer review. The later argues that is why creationism enjoys more than 50% support from the American public while languishing at less than 1% among scientists.

According to the creationist  life rather than having begin in very simple forms – proteins, bacteria, algae, etc., and then gradually evolve into more complex forms to become specious rather  creatures started out as distinct and separate organisms when God created them. Although these distinct creatures have the capability to adapt to their surroundings to a certain extent, Creationists do not believe that they change into completely different and distinct animals through evolution. Creationists affirm that single-celled organisms did not evolve into more complex plants and animals, finally culminating in modern Homo sapiens.


Creationists brought out the following 5 main weaknesses in the scientific evidence of the evolutionists-


  1. They recognize  many  evidences for adaptive changes in species (microevolution), there is no  in recorded history see one species becoming an entirely different, more highly evolved organism;  a fish becoming an amphibian or even a bacteria evolving into anything other than a bacteria;
  2. The Darwinian  fossil record does not show the gradual changes as predicted;
  3. Errors in carbon dating and other methods has been seen though widely  used to determine the age of fossils and the Earth itself;
  4. Though DNA and RNA comparisons between similar and dissimilar species at times confirm evolution, but in other circumstances are inconsistent. To this day the DNA count for chimpanzee the closest ape and man does not even much 42/46…
  5. For the creationists ,Charles Darwin’s “ Theory of Evolution «is as much theory as is the theory of gravity, or the theory of relativity. Unlike theories of physics, biological theories, and especially evolution, have been argued long and hard in socio-political arenas. Even today, evolution is not often taught in primary schools. Creationist accepts that evolution is the binding force of all biological research as unifying theme. Especially in paleontology evolution helps as methodology a powerful way to organize the remains of past life and better understand the one history of life not to change creation. For creationists , evolution as a history of thought about evolution in general and paleontological contributions specifically are often useful to the workers of today helping science in a  iterative process, draws heavily from its history.

According the evolutionists the ancestors of humans were walking upright more than 3m years ago, according to an analysis of a fossilized foot bone found in Ethiopia. The fossil, the fourth metatarsal bone from the species Australopithecus aphaeresis, shows that this forerunner of early humans had a permanently arched foot like modern humans, a key requirement for an upright gait.

Arches in human feet put a spring in our step: they are stiff enough to propel us forward but flexible enough to absorb the shock at the end of each stride.

It is thought that A. aphaeresis could walk on two feet but were unsure whether the creatures climbed and grasped tree branches as well, much like modern nonhuman apes. The fourth metatarsal according the new discovery shows that  afarensis moved around more like modern humans.

“Now that we know Lucy and her relatives had arches in their feet, this affects much of what we know about them, from where they lived to what they ate and how they avoided predators,” said Carol Ward, a professor of integrative anatomy at the University of Missouri-Columbia who led the analysis of the fossil.

“The development of arched feet was a fundamental shift toward the human condition, because it meant giving up the ability to use the big toe for grasping branches, signaling that our ancestors had finally abandoned life in the trees in favor of life on the ground.”

The best-known example of A. afarensis is “Lucy”, who lived in Ethiopia more than 3m years ago. Before that, more than 4.4m years ago, Ethiopia was populated by Ardipithecus ramidus, which seems to have been a part-time terrestrial biped, though its foot had many of the features of tree-dwelling primates, including a highly mobile big toe.

Unlike other primates, human feet have two arches, which stretch along the length of the foot and across it. Ape feet do not have these arches and are far more flexible, with a mobile large toe that is useful for climbing trees and holding onto branches.

These ape-like features are not present in the foot of A. afarensis, however. Given that its foot was more like that of modern humans; scientists think that A. afarensis no longer depended on the trees for refuge or resources 3m years ago.

“Arches in the feet are a key component of human-like walking because they absorb shock and also provide a stiff platform so that we can push off from our feet and move forward,” said Ward. “People today with ‘flat feet’ who lack arches have a host of joint problems throughout their skeletons. Understanding that the arch appeared very early in our evolution shows that the unique structure of our feet is fundamental to human locomotion.

“If we can understand what we were designed to do and the natural selection that shaped the human skeleton, we can gain insight into how our skeletons work today. Arches in our feet were just as important for our ancestors as they are for us. For paleontologist these findings confirm that our human ancestors were walking on two legs by about 3.2m years ago.

While  bipedal locomotion or two-legged walking is one of the hallmarks of the human species, older human fossils still show adaptations to spending some of their time in the trees … for feeding or nesting, but the evidence here suggests that by 3.2m years ago one of our ancestors, Australopithecus afarensis, was fully committed to bipedal walking.”

The debate on the Creationist evolutionist continues so long as the missing link between specious is large and the creatures will contuse to maintain their theory of creation to stand on the firm ground on their milliner believes.

Egyptian 32 years of dictatorial regime swept away with 18 days of Social Tsunami and 20 second of declaration

32 years of dictatorial regime swept out with 20 seconds of announcement and 18 day of Social Tsunami. As we have many time announced in this site the year 2011/12 is the beginning of the end of dictators. Vice President Omar Suleiman has announced that Hosni Mubarak will step down as president of Egypt.  Power in Egypt has been passed on to the Egyptian military.

Last night, Mubarak said he intended to remain in office until the end of his term in September, but handed over some control of the government to his newly appointed Vice President, Omar Suleiman. However, that did not satisfy the crowds that have been demanding the resignation of Mubarak.

Friday’s announcement of Mubarak’s resignation has brought jubilation to the people of Egypt, with millions celebrating in Liberation Square.

The Tunisian Tsunami as it blew the Nile dictator Hosni Mubarak. It surely will blow the rest of the riparian dictators in the Horn of Africa, especially Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia soon.

The fall of hard Dictator Mubarak announces end all dictators- 2011-2012

2011/2012 the year  the earth is changing  & cleansing  itself while the inhabitants of the planet due to the high rate of the catastrophe are no more linnet to support the incapable tyrant   who reign over them and use the international aid for their personal ends.  The global catastrophes are announcing the end of the dictators around the world. The Tunisia and Egyptian revolt is the being of the end of all dictators.

The Egyptian showed to the world how they will defeat the most outrageous dictator in Africa Hosni Mubarak.  Egyptian resistance is harsher than that of the Tunisia. The coming fight against the African dictators of the Horn of African will be bloody unless their sponsor forces them to relinquished power by depriving them their blind support.

In his last days, the Egyptian dictator ordered his security police to attack the protestors dressed in civil cloths after disarming the protestors?  The security van dashed through civilian protestors and passed crushing itself through. The Egypt police van video is just another example of violence in Egypt. Several journalists have been attacked in the streets of Cairo.

Despite the chaos, another massive Cairo protest in planned for today Friday, February 4.
The Mubarak ordered the soldiers to shoot on site and at the same time ordered his puppet newly handpicked Prime minster   to excuse for the death of the protestors the last three days.  The  dictator  of the Arabian nights  claimed his 62 years service  at the same time forgetting  Egyptian are beating  and crashed by his security forces in the disguise of  his supports.

Thursday Gunfire erupted in downtown Cairo again Thursday afternoon when anti-government protesters broke out of their barricades on the edge of Tahrir Square. It was the second day of violent clashes between the insurgents and s the security forces disguised as supporters of Egyptian deadly dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Soldiers fired over the protestors’ heads   though they were told to shoot by the dictator in his last days attempt to push them back.  Mubarak’s security forces disguised as his supporters in civil cloths and anti government protestors are well aware that the army has pledged not to use force, rendering the small number of soldiers on the ground ineffectual, reduced at times to trying to wave them away.

The army had attempted to keep the two sides far enough apart so their stone-throwing would be ineffective — planting tanks and soldiers in the no-man’s land of what had become enemy lines — but the protesters’ shift out of Tahrir Square onto open ground near the Nile River greatly complicated the soldiers’ task.

Yom Jumaa  a  potentially larger confrontation loomed Friday, the main prayer day of the Muslim week, when protest organizers have called for a redoubling of efforts to force Mubarak to step aside though he told  reports that he will resign as soon as transitional  regime is set in order to stop  coming  chaos .

His western allies knowing that they will not save their protégée from the Social Tsunami  demanded a swift political transition, the newly appointed  puppet prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, called the storming of the square on Wednesday by pro-Mubarak partisans a “fatal error” and pledged to investigate who had masterminded it, knowing his master the dying dictator Mubarak did it.

On Wednesday the dictator order an onslaught, which left at least dozen people dead and hundreds injured, produced surreal scenes, most notably a horse-and-camel charge by the attackers like the olden war in time of the great Egyptian leader Mohamed Ali. The two sides battled for hours with crude weapons, protestors used – sticks, stones, bottles, cudgels — while the dictator’s security men in civil dress used gunfire and firebombs aimed at the square’s defenders of liberty.

As always the dictator regime has denied fomenting the violence and distanced itself from the storming of the square. But organizers of what had heretofore been peaceful protesters in the square say the assailants — who staged wave after wave of well-coordinated attacks — were acting at the behest of the 82-year-old Egyptian leader and that their ranks included plainclothes police and criminals sprung from jail for that purpose.

Finally on Thursday, unlike the previous day, those disguised as the supports of President Hosni Mubarak, the armed security men were outnumbered. They were also extremely angry, taking out their ire on Western journalists who they see as misrepresenting them as the cause of the continuing violence.

In the afternoon of Thursday, the principal flashpoint remained a contested stretch near the world-famous Egyptian Museum, which abuts Liberation Square. Pro-Mubarak f security forces roamed freely in other downtown areas. Losing ground the security of men was seen confiscating food and water apparently meant for the square’s defenders.

The pro democracy forces captured and detained dozens of pro-Mubarak security attackers, placing them in a makeshift holding area before periodically handing them over to the army, rendering rough justice was sometimes dispensed on the spot for suspected  bought killers of the Dictators

The disguised security forces of Mubarak were attacking foreigners, and foreign journalists in particular, were menaced.  The insurgents took over the city of Cairo, Alexandria and Sinai and set up impromptu checkpoints, pedestrians and motorists were ordered to produce identification _ a token of the vigilante system that has taken hold across Egypt.

In incongruous scenes, some protesters in the square prostrated themselves in prayer while a hail of rocks fell nearby. On the square’s fringes, men smashed railings to make metal clubs. Some people wore motorcycle helmets, or swaddled their heads in blankets.
