“Tegadalay” Aba Matias declares all out war on the Holy Synod in exile

March 4, 2013

The Horn Times Newsletter 3 March 2013

*Is that the Christian version of “Jihadawe Harekat”?

by Getahune Bekele, South Africa

He has reportedly been told by some Bishops and respected scholars that his election is not canonical and not inspiredIn collaboration with fascist TPLF warlords, Aba Matias by the Holy Spirit but by demonic spirit of lust for power in the murky world of Tigre politics. Hence the country’s biggest churches and monasteries have so far failed to endorse his election while some shrines already told him to stay out for his own safety. Aba Matias is a frustrated man.

However, In typical Tigre warlord style, the man who acquired the throne of Saint Markos as the 6th patriarch of EOTC  by hereditary Tigre descent just few days ago, has declared all out war on the Holy Synod in exile out of sheer desperation to legitimize his fake election and to please the genocidal TPLF hierarchy.

Spurred on by those who propelled him to power, such as the feared king maker and king killer, the Sadist Nibureed  Elias Abreha and Bishop-cum-warlord Abbay Tsehaye, Aba Matias is trying to flex his old and emaciated muscles against the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido church, in exile since May 1991.

In collaboration with fascist TPLF warlords, Aba Matias has already put together a committee comprised of Federal affairs minister Shiferaw Teklemariam and a well known Ohio based TPLF agent Dr Muse.    The committee would soon launch court action to prevent the Holy Synod in exile from calling itself “the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church.”

According to breaking news appeared exclusively on an Ethiopian news website known as zehabesha.com, Aba Matias has briefed   minister Shiferaw and  Abbay Tsehaye on Friday 1st March 2013 on how he intend to go about persecuting the Church in exile.

The report further revealed that the TPLF junta which is suffering total rejection among the Diaspora Ethiopians would help Aba Matias by giving him diplomatic support and by donating a substantial amount of money to be spent on legal proceedings including the hiring of lawyers.

The massive project is said to have been modeled on the cold war era success of the Durg regime in stopping splinter groups and secessionist Bishops from using the name of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in the United States of America.

However, Zehabesha.com sources indicate that the huge offensive is bound to fail as the legal Holy Synod in exile remains much bigger and stronger, enjoying more support from the Diaspora and at home.

“It would be a waste of time and money” zehabesha sources said.

In additional news Aba Matias has been inaugurated as the 6th patriarch of the Addis Ababa Pro-TPLF synod today 3 March 2013 at St Trinity cathedral in Addis Ababa.

The small crowd attended the mass was outnumbered by  heavily armed federal police members and eye witnesses told the Horn Times that the turnout of few hundred caused huge embarrassment to the organizing committee and the frail looking Aba Matias himself was clearly upset and appeared irritated on the pulpit.

    Peace – what you are missing in what is taking place is that this is not a school yard fight but a breach of church laws. or rather canon’s. Paulos came to power through the use of force and political threat as the Prime Minister of the time stated and aplogized for “Tamerat Layne”. Instead of recitifying that error and moving forward, we see the church being once again defiled by political operatives. This is not about individuals and feel good measures of goody good oh lets just bygones be bygones.

    This is an institution and as such it has to abide by ethos and laws that should be adhered and corrected when errors happen. Your solution I am willing to accept as naivite rather than malicous, due to your argument being beyond simplistic. The people of Ethiopia know that all these sinanigans are wrong but they are muzzeled up and in fear they know the truth and no one is buying this political appointment.

    The silenece of the last 20 years has exasporated things. It is time that the church stands up and fights for its rights and its laws than and only than will the people understand that freedom is something to belive in and demand and it is not handed out. That is one thing that we all can learn from our Muslim brothers. They are fighting for their “deen” faith and we should do the same. Peace – it takes courage, undrestanding, certainty, clarity, depth, compassion, and wisdom to uphold ones faith and not a feel good hoopla!

    To Saba Solomon, the Silence of the people of Tigrai is what the rest of the Ethiopians are agrevated about. Unless you make a noise and denounce this group of bandas that are robbing our country at your name and expense, you will leave a very sad mark on your countryman heart and mind. there a few outspoken ex TPLF nationalist like aregawi berhe and a few more patriots but other are just letting these thugs rape the country and its people. also remember, its the pro Eretreans that have always belittled the people of tigrai that are in charge while the real pro-tigreans have been destroyed by the traitor meles zenawi. so wake up and smell the coffee sister

    On a recent visit to Addis Abeba an Ethiopian from the Diaspora had a unique experience. He walked along the street between the Parliament and the compound that is the seat of the Regime. At one moment he sensed an armed soldier keeping pace with him on the compound side. He later realized that he was in fact telling him to go to the Parliament side of the road. That act informed him how fearful the Regime is of the Ethiopian people. The out burst of an illegal Abun can not make the legal Abun change course. He and his flock are in the land of the free.

    While I always enjoyed your fact based writtings,i also detest your masking all the population of Tigrai -by the TPLF Junta groups .although firstly its “TIGRAI” not “Tigre” also the TPLF Gulages have nothing to do with the patriotic People Ethiopians of Tigrai Origin .It seems almost always your article campaign for all Tigreans to parade behind the TPLF. So far i urge my self to belive that is not your intention

    Here is the deal, I don’t think war among these Synods should continue. If the Tigre is driven by lust and power, the exiled ones should be the better person instead of challenging. After all, both are supposed to be emulating god’s teaching therefore, we know that Tigre apointee is not legitimate however in order for the people of Ethiopia, the exiled one should normalize relations and come up with what benefits for Ethiopia the most. I don’t think they should defy we are talking about the danger Ethiopia is in. While we know the corruption in Ethiopia, the exiled one should have more morality and try to do what benefits Ethiopa the most otherwise, the exiled one will also be considered competing for power when it should both focusing on god and god’s teachings. This is shameful

    They were right when they said he is not the blessed by the Holy Spirit. He knows his election is not on solid ground and Godly credintial. He knows that he is fake so to satisfy hid ego and to please his bosses he came out with full force to attack the true ETOC. One look at him(his eyes)tells you something that is not normal. God bless the people and our country. “Der biaber ambesa yasir”
