Ethiopia the beacon of hope and African pride is here to stay. I just read a an article on Ethiopia and the Ethiopian pride was rushing through my veins. I as a Somali from North Western areas feel great affinity with Ethiopians. Only a anarchic maggot would want to see a African nation of 100 million destroyed to create a massive refugee crisis into other Horn of African countries. A destroyed Ethiopia would mean a weaker Somalia, Eritrea , Djibouti and Kenya. Everyone is moving forward because of globalization and you all want to move backward. Ethiopia as I like to call is the core of the Horn, it is the pride of us all.
The good history of Ethiopia outweigh the bad. We as Somalis should stay rational. Was it Ethiopia that invaded Somalia 1977 or was it the other way around? The aggressor got what came for him 42 years instability. Somalia even lost to Kenya In the 60's. Had they been smart, they would of went for Kenya before Ethiopia. Ethiopia is protected by the almighty it needs to bring forth a wealthy nation where the one springs forth who will destroy the Kaaba.
Just now I was reading how Ethiopia was seen as beacon of hope for Africa especially with Abiy elected as president. He managed to open border with Eritrea managed to strengthen ties with Somalia. Completely took a whole different approach even in his country allowing liberation groups and states the freedom to express themselves. Whole of Africa watching was stunned.
That's the Ethiopia I feel proud of, the place not colonized and where first Muslims sought refugee.
I am Somali from Ethiopia Harawo region and I feel 100% Ethiopian.
I hope Ethiopia grows stronger and neutralizes the whole horn.
Our ethnic Somali didn't even exist by name before the creation of Ethiopia. Ethiopia existed before it.
I feel Ethiopian.
I hope you feel so too.
