    This shows the barbaric and brutal attitudes and practices of Arabs against blacks as a whole and Ethiopians in particular. These category of peoples lives have neither dignty nor any value.

    On the other hand, we must share the blame for failing to unite and put the political and economic affairs of our country which in many ways is much more diverse rich and original thanj that cursed and barren hot desert with mad cursed and baren brained people boasting with desert oil alone and massacring innocent and weak people all over.

    Oil will soon dry up as to convert that area’s people in to beggars. We must be ready to put the Ethiopian home in condition and take them and feed them when they start runing away from that cursed desert hell.

    Islam never protects a woman’s right: Alem had the right not to go into her abductors’ car, but they forced her into their car, and finally, as it was reported, she committed suicide.

    The following article tells us how a Muslim girl committed suicide for different reasons.

    “Moroccan girl commits suicide after being forced to marry her rapist

    Moroccan feminist movements have long demanded changes to a law that exempts a rapist from punishment if he admits to marry his victim. (File Photo)
    By Al Arabiya

    A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.
    Last year Amina’s parents filed charges against their daughter’s rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

    The court’s decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to “resolve” the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband’s family.
    Traumatized by the painful experience of rape, Amina decided to end her life by consuming rat poison in the house of her husband’s family, according to the Moroccan daily al-Massae.

    According to the newspaper, this type of forced marriage is rooted in local rural traditions to safeguard the honor of girls who are raped.
    Moroccan penal code exempts a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.
    Feminists have long demanded an amendment to this article.

    Hafida Elbaz, director of the Women’s Solidarity Association told a-Massae that the article provides an opportunity for a perpetrator to avoid punishment.
    The story has widely spread on Twitter and on Facebook with many in Morocco demanding action against the judge who issued the ruling.”

    For sure, the 9-year-old Aisha was forced to marry the 54-year-old Muhammad the prophet; Islam hearts not only the non-Muslim women but also the Muslim women. It is time to outlaw Islam completely, and if it were not for Islam that allows its followers to mistreat women, our sister Alem could not have died in the hands of the Lebanese Arab Muslims.

      Assta,

      I am sorry to say. Perhaps these barabric Arab abusers are watching people like you who are abusing our women in Arab countries. Understand this, you are not saving Ethiopian women by insulting these Arabs and Islam in this forum. You are just instigating it. In fact we are instigating by every comment we make and they: tplf, Arabs, Islam, etc. Let us not give open door to abuse Ethiopians within and outside. What is the solution let us shut up and do action to stop this humiliation.

        Peace,

        I have bad news for you if you are a Christian and good news for my adversary Gragn Ahmed, who wants Ethiopian Muslims to be allowed to build a grand Mosque next to Axum Zion Church and that the Muslims in Axum to bury their dead in the Christian burial places.

        I am also advising my Ethiopian Christians to destroy completely all the Mosques in Ethiopia and should not allow any new Mosque to be constructed in any place in Ethiopia, especially in the Oromia region.

        Every Ethiopian Christian must read the following article:

        “Christians angry as Saudi Grand Mufti calls for churches to be destroyed
        3/17/2012
        Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia

        By Yossef
        Christians across the Middle East are expressing anger and frustration after the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia said it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.” In Cairo and Beirut, the anger was loudest, but also through their calls were gestures of tolerance.
        “I mean from a regular, end of the street mosque, this stuff happens all the time, but for the Grand Mufti of a country to say it is simply shocking,” Beirut resident Hani told Bikyamasr.com.
        The mufti’s statements had followed Kuwait’s move to ban churches from being constructed in the country.
        Ironically, the Saudi religious leader’s comments come only months after Saudi Arabia partnered with Switzerland on an institute of tolerance. At the time, many observers called the move “unsubstantiated” in reference to Saudi’s ultra-conservative Islamic views.
        Speaking to a delegation in Kuwait, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, stressed that since the tiny Gulf state was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, it was necessary to destroy all of the churches in the country, Arabic media have reported.
        Saudi Arabia’s top cleric made the comment in view of an age-old belief that only Islam can be practiced in the region.
        According to religious scholars, however, even during the Prophet Mohamed’s time, Christians and Jews were allowed to practice their faith openly and freely. Christians in Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan largely have open access to churches and places to pray, although regulations in Egypt have been condemned by Christian leaders and activists.
        “What we see with this is the turn toward ultra conservatism in the region,” said Egyptian Coptic Christian Noha, adding that “what we need to do now is bring together people and show this mufti that us Christians and Muslims can live and share the same street. And that it is a right granted by Islam for others to pray in their own place.”
        The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia is the highest official of religious law in the Sunni Muslim kingdom. He is also the head of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas.
        A Kuwaiti parliamentarian said last month he wanted to ban the construction of churches and non-Islamic places of worship in the Gulf state.

        MP Osama Al-Munawer announced on Twitter he planned to submit a draft law calling for the removal of all churches in the country. He later clarified that existing churches should remain but the construction of new non-Islamic places of worship should be banned.”

        Emboldened by President Obama, who bowed down to the Saudi king in 2009, Muslims all over the world are determined to destroy Christianity and spread Islam, the false religion, throughout the entire world. It is my belief Mr. Obama may have given the Saudi mufti (a professional jurist who interprets the Sharia law or any Islamic law) a green light to humiliate Christians and to diminish their faith in Jesus Christ. After all, Obama has said that Jesus is a sinner who died for his sins, and Jesus is not the only way for salvation.

        I think it is time to wake up and to say no to the destruction of Christian Churches by the Saudi jurists.

    Alem’s dead body must be immediately transported to Ethiopia and be buried there with great ceremony; otherwise, the lusty Lebanese Arab Muslims may fornicate with her corpse as their prophet Muhammad did with a dead women long time ago.

    • peace on

      Are you kidding me? Dead bodies are becoming billions of dollars of organ trafficking. Not only Alem while alive was trafficked to hostile country to be slaughtered which is the first step. The second step is her body is cut up and her perfect organs is traffickked to keep alive rich Western person all over the world.

    She was slut. She should have behaved wisely. She deserved to die. One useless soul. Muslims get abused every day in Ethiopia: forced to eat in church in Tigray, denied a place to bury their dead ones, and muslim losing their breasts, jailed every where and axed to death in Bahr dar. What shame copts try to pretend they are good.

    • Assta B. Gettu on

      Gragn Ahmed #64,

      As a ruthless, faithless, meritless, and gutless Muslim of Ethiopia, you have purposely disrespected and insulted one of the loveliest Ethiopian daughters, Alen whom your wanton Arab-Muslim cousins murdered as she tried not to be abducted and raped by those doggy Lebanese Arab Muslims.

      Shamelessly, you wrote on the Ethiopian Review and on nazret.com. : “She (Alem) was slut. She should have behaved wisely. She deserved to die.”

      Did your Prophet Muhammad behave wisely when he slept with a dead woman and fucked her corpse?
      Did he behave wisely when he raped a 9-year-old Aisha without her consent?
      Did he behave wisely when he slaughtered over 900 Jews, enslaved their wives and raped each one of them?
      Did he behave wisely when he declared war on your holy Ramadan season against the Jews and the Christians?
      Did he behave wisely when he struck his child-wife Aisha on her chest and gave her a severe pain that lasted for a long time?
      Did he behave wisely when he unlawfully married his daughter-in-law?
      Did he behave wisely when he allowed a Muslim man to have 4 wives but he himself should have as many wives as he wanted?
      Did he behave wisely when he constituted the Sharia law that maims a human being for a peccadillo?
      Did he behave wisely when he distorted and plagiarized the Holy Scriptures?
      Did he behave wisely when he said women are deficient in intellect?
      Did he behave wisely when he stated that the majority in hell are women?
      Did he behave wisely when he believed that a woman’s testimony is half a man’s due to the deficiency of her mind?
      Did he behave wisely when he said that a man should not be asked as to why he beats his wife?

      If Muhammad were alive today, he would say the same thing that the Lebanese Arab-Muslim men should not be asked as to why they beat the Ethiopian girl. And that is the main reason the Lebanese police did not intervene in the beating of Alen since the prophet Muhammad had made it clear that Muslim men could beat and rape any women, Muslim or non-Muslim, and no question is asked.

      Gragn Ahmed, if Ethiopian Muslims are denied a burial place in Ethiopia, where have they been burying their dead for the last1400 years? Are you sure the Ethiopian Muslims are not allowed to bury their dead in the Ethiopia soil? Are you sure Ethiopian Muslims are forced to eat in the Church, and to whom did Ethiopian Muslims lose their breasts? Are you certain Ethiopian Muslims are axed to death in Bahir- Dar?
      Gragn Ahmed, if you and your parents are denied to bury their dead in Ethiopia, why don’t you leave Ethiopia? You already know Ethiopia is a Christian country, and the Ethiopian Christians have the right to refuse you a burial place in their holy lands or cities.

      Alem was not a slut; she fought hard not to be a slut. She said, “No, No, No,” to those dirty Arab Muslims who wanted her to be a slut, who wanted her to be their sex object, and when she refused to have sex with them, they decided to deport her to Ethiopia. Finally, they killed her mysteriously!

      May the Almighty God bless her soul!

    These are the same people that shot down our Airplane and murdered all those lives. No body believes their story. Justice has to be served. That useless Arab has to stand trail. That is why I don’t have any grudge against Israel because she knows how to really handle these animals.

    REST IN PEACE ALEM!!

    Whats wrong with you people? Politics is not the issue here. Thats why most of our problems remain unsolved. Alem represents hundreds and thousands of women suffering and torturing in the hands of CRUEL UNEDUCATED ARABS in the Midwest BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. SHE IS THEIR VOICE!!I am deeply sad that she has lost her LIFE, but this should BRING a turning point to this PRECIOUS ETHIOPIAN WOMEN’s SLAVERY in the Middle east.

    I strongly disagree with you Gragne Ahmed!! You might be one of those….Koshasha Arabs or YENESU EGER ATABIE!!! You don’t belong here.

    On this day [Megabit 10] the glorious Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ – to Whom be praise – appeared twice; the first time through the Empress Helena, the mother of Constantine, the righteous emperor. For on this day, the blessed Helena, the blessed of the Lord–her son Constantine having entered the Christian Faith–went to Jerusalem, and discovered the wood of the holy Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; and many churches, and the holy churches which were in Jerusalem, were built by her. When her son Constantine believed in our Lord Jesus Christ, and was baptized with Christian baptism, the holy woman Helena went to the city of Jerusalem (and with her there was a large company of soldiers) and sought for the Honorable Cross. When she found that there was no one who would tell her the place thereof, she took an old man, a Jew, and put him under the tribulation of hunger and thirst. And when he had suffered great tribulation through hunger and thirst, he spoke unto Helena, saying, “Clear out the site of Golgotha.” And Helena commanded the Jews, and they cleared out the site of Golgotha. Now the Jews had taken counsel together, and had issued a decree that all the offal and filth, which each man cast forth from his house, should be thrown out on Golgotha, on the tomb of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Nazarene – to Whom be praise! And the Jews continued to heap offal on Golgotha in this wise for a period of two hundred years and more, and until the Empress Helena came to Jerusalem; and the offal, which had been cast out there, made a very great heap. And when the Jews had cleared it away, according as the empress had commanded them, there appeared in the midst of them three crosses. And because they did not know which of the three crosses was the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, they brought a dead man, and they laid upon him first one cross and then the second, but he did not rise up; and when they laid the third cross upon him he rose up immediately. And Helena then knew that that cross was the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and she and all the believing people bowed down before it. And it is written in another book that she sent that Cross to her son, that which remained was the base wherein the Cross was fixed, and she sent one half of that to her son, together with the nails. And she built churches, [and] holy shrines, the decorations and structures of which are described in the section for the seventeenth day of the month of Meskaerem. And it came to pass in the days of Heraclius, Emperor of Rome, when the Persians reigned in Egypt, and when the men of Persia wished to return to their country, that one of their officers passed over [into Syria], and arrived in the city of Jerusalem, and he went into the church of the Honorable Cross. And he saw in it a great light, which shone before the base (or column) wherein the Honorable Cross, and said unto him, “No one is able to hold this except a Christian.” And he took two deacons and commanded them to take the wood of the Cross, and to become the guardians thereof; and they laid it in a chest, and did with it according as the officer had commanded them. And he took the wood of the Honorable Cross, and he made captive very many of the men of the city of Jerusalem, and he returned to his own country. When the Emperor of Rome heard that Persians had raided the city of Jerusalem, and had carried away into captivity many men from it, and had taken away the wood of the Honorable Cross, he was exceedingly sorrowful because of these things. And the King of Persia returned, and fought with him, and he slew very many of their men, and he went round about through all the city searching for the wood of the Honorable Cross, and he found it not. Now the officer who had taken it away had brought the two deacons to a certain place, which was nigh unto his house, and he gave them orders, and they dug a very deep hole in the ground, and buried the wood of the Honorable Cross therein, and then he slew the two deacons. And it came to pass that a certain maiden of the children of the priesthood whom that officer had carried away captive, and who lived in his house, was looking out of the window of his house at the moment when he slew the two deacons, and buried the wood of the Honorable Cross [in the hole]. And that maiden went and told Heraclius, the Emperor of Rome, what the officer had done, and how he had slain the two deacons, and had buried the wood of the Honorable Cross. When the emperor heard this he rejoiced exceedingly. And that maiden guided the emperor, with whom were some of his soldiers, and bishops, and priests, and they followed her until she brought them to the place. And they dug there and found the wood of the Honorable Cross, and they lifted it up out of the pit, and the emperor, in his imperial apparel, and all the people who were with him, bowed down before the wood of the Honorable Cross, and he rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And the appearance of and the finding of the wood of the Honorable Cross a second time, took place on the tenth day of the month of Magabit. Then the emperor took the wood of the Honorable Cross with him to the city of Constantinople. Glory be to God Who is glorified in His Saints. Amen. The Ethiopian Synaxarium
