Africanizing the Genocidal War on Tigray: Last Arrow of the Dying Regime

Africanizing the Genocidal War on Tigray: Last Arrow of the Dying Regime

By: Adisalem Desta

One year into the genocidal war waged on Tigray by the joint Ethiopian, Eritrean, and Amhara regional forces, with the support of other foreign powers; the people of Tigray are under complete humanitarian siege. And despite all the significant diplomatic engagements, international calls, and condemnations of the Ethiopian and Eritrean officials as well as the Amhara regional government, there have been no meaningful targeted actions taken to end the war on Tigray, facilitate unfettered humanitarian access to address the man-made famine,  ensure the withdrawal of Eritrean troops and Amhara militia from Tigray, or a mechanism for a peaceful resolution to the political crisis underlying the conflict. 

A key feature of this war has been the persistent quest by the Ethiopian regime to set a narrative that suits it and silence or distort the reality of the war in any way it can. To this end, the initial narrative used by the Abiy regime to wage the genocidal war on Tigray was the pretext of a precise ‘law enforcement operation’. As a result of a miscalculation by the regime in exaggerating its capability and underestimating the resilience and fierce opposition to subjugation of the Tigrayan people, however, the Ethiopian National Defense force and its allied forces were routed by the Tigray Defense Forces from most parts of Tigray, including from Mekelle on 28 June 2021. 

Since that time, despite the declaration of  ‘‘final major offensive operations’’ by the Abiy regime, the Tigray Defense Forces has strengthened its defensive capabilities and strategic position by launching successive counter-offensives. Following its resounding defeat at the hands of the Tigray Defense Forces coupled with the formation of an alliance with the Oromo Liberation Army and allied forces, the Abiy regime is now busy searching for a bigger enemy that can be a scapegoat for its humiliating defeat. To this end Abiy and his supporters have deployed the narrative of an  ‘‘African war’’ through mischaracterizing the parties to the conflict, twisting historical anecdotes, and misrepresenting the systemic legitimacy crisis and the irreconcilable aspirations of the state that led to the genocidal war. 

Quest in Search of a Bigger Enemy

Since Abiy ascended to power through backdoor negotiations, he has been portrayed by the international community as a poster child for political and other reforms. Without a single meaningful deliverable or a clear political roadmap of transitioning the country, Abiy was given unqualified trust most notably demonstrated in his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, which he eventually exploited as a blank cheque to wage a genocidal war on Tigray. The political and economic prescriptions coming from the same entities now employed as a scapegoat were unconditionally implemented. Without any exaggeration, the sovereignty and policy space of Ethiopia were rented in exchange for an imported legitimacy. The so-called homegrown economic reform that auctioned the precious assets of the country, the signing of the Ethio-Eritrea Peace Accord in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia disregarding the African Union, the manner in which the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam negotiation was taken from its Tripartite framework to a US -World Bank-led negotiation are some of the many practical examples of how national interest and Pan-African diplomacy were disregarded to curry favor from Western countries and institutions. 

As a way of reciprocating for Abiy handing over Ethiopia’s sovereignty, the international community looked away from the disastrous war launched by the Ethiopian regime and legitimized the narrative that what was unfolding was a law enforcement operation and strictly an internal affair. And for extended parts of the last one year of the war, despite calls for unhindered humanitarian access and the protection of human rights, the general approach of the international community has been to blame all the parties to the conflict without any regard to their level of participation and level of accountability; at times to an extent that was almost tantamount to suggesting that the dead were as much to blame for their death as their killers. 

The current futile attempt by the regime to blame the very international community that has tolerated the irresponsible actions that should have been subject to serious scrutiny and targeted actions is, therefore, a very obvious attempt to save face from the humiliating defeat at the hands of a force that the Prime Minister himself had once likened to ‘‘flour in the wind’’. 

Honoring the Past by Denying the Present

All the parties to the conflict being African actors one may wonder why the Abiy regime is toiling to create an alternative reality out of thin air, whereby it depicts itself as facing a non-African force and thus in need of African support. The underlying reasons for the regime being busy distorting historical narratives, misrepresenting the parties to the conflict, and attempting to exploit African solidarity is undoubtedly a quest for a ‘bigger enemy’, as the last arrow before its demise. 

A key element at the core of the historical distortion, in particular, lies the interpretation of the battle of Adwa and post Adwa political order. As part of the complex political history of the Ethiopian empire, the battle of Adwa has been problematically deployed both for internal and external consumption. 

Internally, Adwa is an instrument of nostalgia glorifying a controversial past and masking the irreconcilable basic contradictions of the Empire. It is not an overstatement that countries like Ethiopia, obsessed with ultra-national pride, live in past glories but are desperate about the future. Such political entities have less hope in their common future and invariably look for a pretext to commit atrocities against their people and launch aggression, for the sole purpose of either creating a monolithic national image to the liking of the political elites or using the crisis as a unifying factor to sustain the life of a regime, as Abiy is seeking to do in relation to the genocidal war on Tigray. 

Externally, Adwa, as a victory against a European colonial power, is deployed as a unifying talisman relevant to all Africans and people of African descent. However, even the accounts of the Ethiopian far-right Bahru Zewde, notes that the victory of Adwa was not the spark that ignited the fire of anti-colonialism in Africa. Marxist-inspired revolutions and nationalist uprisings elsewhere had more impact on anti-colonial struggles in Africa than the victory of Adwa. Indeed, those self-same far-right Ethiopianists who want to use Adwa as a pan African symbol are of the conviction that they are neither Africans nor black. An integral political myth of the Ethiopian Empire is the claim that the ruling elite is descendants of Israeli emigrants thus disassociating from African descent. Surprisingly, the same expansionist elites that claim Eritrea was part of the empire and was handed over Eritrea to Italy in the Treaty of Wuchale and subsequently reaffirmed in the 1896 Treaty of Addis Ababa also, paradoxically, wish to claim Ethiopia was never colonized as if there is a thing called ‘divisible sovereignty’. 

In conclusion, the Abiy regime’s attempt at mobilizing African solidarity, in support of the genocidal war it is waging against the people of Tigray and Ethiopians of Tigrayan ethnicity in all parts of the country for more than one year, is nothing but a diversion from its inevitable demise. It is neither out of conviction for Pan African ideals nor out of subscription to the concept of sovereignty.

Hence, unless enabling genocide is a new Pan African value, African sisters and brothers should refrain from giving support to salvage an unredeemable genocidal regime, condemn the atrocities and acts of genocide committed by the Ethiopian regime and its allies, equally recognize all parties to the conflict as African brethren, leave the legitimacy question to the domestic stakeholders, limit their levels of engagement until a legitimate government is established through an all-inclusive transitional arrangement.

    We should not lose more people in order to stop massive large scale crime against each other; we must stop it now and learn from the failure of others in history than regretting about what we have done so far and future actions ahead.

    Those letters and official statements of US are part of its lullaby to make us ignore its role in the genocide , and feel good about US , just as a lullaby used to lull a child to sleep; cradlesong.

    Silence is the most perfect expression of scorn.

    western expression of scorn to humanity is silence and mere words of deep concern
    Doing nothing for the past 388 days is a perfect expression of scorn for our people ,humanity in general, while deploying troops to protect their riches and save their own people within a week, if not couple of days.

  2. Stop killing Tegaru and Oromos

    “The best way to predict the future is to design it” most of us do agree and come to terms with the aforementioned absolutely bloody beautiful saying. Westerners were continuously warning and reminding us that there will be a bloodshed in Ethiopia and disintegration of Ethiopia will be inevitable like Yugoslavia.

    They were predicting the chaos that is coming ahead of us , since they design it and spent millions on this chaotic and bloody project in the pretext of counterterrorism, investment, bilateral economic relation between Ethiopia & US, UAE, Turkey, China etc , Furthermore , they trained many youngsters from Oromia, Amhara , and southern region in the guise of self-protection, counter-terrorism etc just as France did in Ruwanda .

    Those donations from these rich countries were misused and still manipulated to exterminate our people along with public taxes from Oromia, Tigray, Kimant, Gumuz,Amhara Agew, and all ethnic members unlawfully and inhumanely .

    All western countries are collaborating with Abiy Ahmed and his supporters to disintegrate the old country and scramble its resources at the expense of the massacre of children, mothers, and entire unarmed innocent civilians of all ethnic members.

    USA has done nothing to avert the bloodshed so far, over one year since Nov 4/20, but rather allowed Abiy Ahmed and his foreign allies to exterminate Tegaru and Oromia by taking no Action except issuing statements expressing superficial concerns lacking actions. Actually, USA is taking a position that doesn’t hinder Abiy Ahmed to accomplish his genocidal mission and help the US appear as the sole human right advocate in the planet that revealed as a paper tiger . All these countries are spending a large sum of money to transport their riches, save their citizens and protect their archives in their embassies based in finfine. They are worried about their buildings and riches in their embassies and wanting to deploy their troops.

    All rich countries are turning blind eyes and becoming coldly indifferent to the suffering of our people from Tigray , Oromia and all other ethnicities who undergo unspeakable and unimaginable agony for the past 3 years of prosperity party ruling, but they give permission to one another to their planes carrying weapons to reach where genocide is publicly committed for the past 1 year. All those weapons did not reach finfine without landing in any other country and without the notice of the USA.

    All the past genocidal missions and upcoming chaos are carefully and skillfully designed by Superhuman and modern day colonial masters who have no heart, but a potbelly could not be saturated and easily filled with its domestic resources at hand.

    Furthermore, Amhara elites in Diaspora and Prosperity party supporters in ethiopia has contributed and played a considerable role in accomplishing the genocidal mission designed by Isiyas Aferworki, and sponssored by western powers including the UAE , China and Turkey.
    Recently, one arab man from asia told Tigreans are Christians , and do not like Muslilms etc and remind us the fact that to exterminate Tigray many foreigners have been told BY Amhara elites as if We Tegaru are anti-Muslim and hate Arabs which is untrue. This perverted image of Tigray designed and presented by anti- TIgray and  Tegaru has served many foreigners including the UAE, Somali Soldiers imported to our land, as one factor, among other economic motives, to go against our people and massacre our beloved ones .
    Tegaru are hailed as the most hospitable and welcoming people who stretched their hand and protected Prophet Muhammad’s followers seeking refuge in Aksum in 615 AD during Christian king (King Al-Najāshī) who provided safety and protection.
    ” To exterminate Tegaru and demolish Tigray, we will work with anyone including Satan”, publicly and shamelessly uttered Amhara elites and Prosperity party goons.

    It is all about reaching those who have perverted image of Tigray and Tegaru and condemn the enemies of Tigray and urge them to stop their atrocities and propaganda based on hate and unfounded hostility . Do obey to moral teachings of your religion , whatever you may adhere to, and stop torturing and killing our people , stop sticking to the genocidal mission of prosperity party. Killing innocent civilians , looting properties of your neighbor , and raping and causing physical harm is not justified by any religion . People should not be killed and not even ill treated for their ethnic, political view and religious standing, but criminals could be brought to justice without causing any sort of or slight physical harm and face justice lawfully and humanely.
    A killer should not be even killed in the streets, but judged accordingly and lawfully according to state laws. How could you claim that you are a Christian or Muslim and kill innocent civilians without a proof simply for their ethnic and political background. Is Prosperity party your cult or religion that tempted you to disregard and abandon Islam and Christianity or any other religion you had accepted for years before Abiy Ahmed came to power ? Thank you

  3. Motuma megerssa

    Professor Wosene Yefru, distinguished erudite from amhara region and loves to see amhara rule the entire world .His article is full of lies and will not help Amhara people who are segregated and put at risk by amhara elites who incite Amhara against neighboring ethnicities hiding themselves in the USA and EU . He claims that 2.5 million Amara killed by wheat mingled with cancer causing chemicals (fertilizers)? and against the rest , 2.5 million Amara living in various towns and villages, killed by TPLF ? in total ,5 mllion Amara reportedly missing since 1991 “ We remember zehabesha has posted an article stating 30 mlliion amhara are killed during TPLF ruling period. prof Yefru goes on saying “They are even killing domestic animals, including camels.” people like you are collecting Carcass Animal Photos and showing it to the public with invented captions as if TDF killed them. What a damn mind and personality you are exhibiting ? Dear Prof Yefru ,You really need psychiatrists ! We understand it is too expensive for you guys to visit a doctor and seem condemned to lead such horrendous lives in such manner and waging war on your own people by seeding hostility among brothers and sisters living being in your hideouts, diaspora. It is every tax paying Ethiopian, irrespective of his or her tribal background, that helped you to go to school and reach at this stage. And now you are sowing hatred and genocide with fake accusation.Let us say you are born and living in US, but you still enjoy ethiopian products from every tribe.Every single ethiopian contributes to his or her country , amhara can’t sell its products without Oromo, Tigray etc and vice versa. Every Tigraway and Oromo living in Gonder or any city contributed to the social and economic well being of the city he lives in. No one is a burden to you.

    That is why westerners accepted you and let you live in their land hoping to tax everyone , promote you accomplish every task they need , be it cleaning or teaching with minimum cost . I donot know an immigrant or any ethnic member who is a burden to any region or land . You Amhara elites claim Tegaru are burden to your land and you made them get rich in Amhara region . most Crazy amhara elites and socalled activists men like you could say anyhing if they see people around them and lend their ears to them; And you are killing these innocent civilian Tegaru and Oromo for no reason, without a proof. You believe there is a genocide against Amhara and can’t accept the genocide on Oromo, Tigray, Kimant, Irob, Gumuz, Agew etc What is your logic, mister professor ? Are you sick of tribalism, ideology of one amhara led country , or any new unnamed virus ? “It seems nobody knows exactly what happened to them(i;e 5 million Amhara )” versus “2.5 million Amara were vanished due to cancer causing agent” Mr Wosene Yefru, spent hours looking for jargon and loan words to help his article worth reading and trustworthy by giving big names to himself such as benefited high standard scholarship , ties with school etc I am from Amhara region and all I know is people kill their neighbor for the sake of a beautiful young lady in the neighborhood, love affair, piece of land , and getting drank at monthly and yearly religious and social events and festivals, If they are killed by a local militia men , they had a disagreement with them with certain agenda and has nothing to do with top officials . Many Farmers do not know who is ruling the country , and even their woreda and most of them were supporters of TPLF. Most people are relying on farming , and has nothing to do with political issues . It is people like you who are born in towns and want to see a man from your tribe rule Ethiopia , invent stories like this and brainwash the rest . I remember , during TPLF era, you were even campaigning against church leaders from Tigrean origin, let alone politicians . You have no respect to your church, let alone to politicians . Your educational profile and excellence in jargon couldn’t be a justification or evidence to persuade the world .

  4. How do see great Tigray?

    All-inclusive? Ignorant. One of the incredible stupidity and ignorance of TPLF (Tegaru) doing the same stupid thing over and over again for over 45+ years. Do you think that the Ethiopian people will allow TPLF to come to power and decide their fate again like the 1991? Do you think that the Ethiopian people are fighting for Abiy? Do you think that the Ethiopian people give any privilege for Tegaru to spy and exploit their resource at the same time? Believe me TPLF is gone putting Tigray at the pre-TPLF 1968. The worst case is that there is no any chance to rehabilitate Tigray at the expense of Ethiopian resource and suffering. TPLF has no the capability of identifying what is feasible and what is illusion. Go back to your pre-TPLF era and enjoy great Tigray illusion.
