Our Muslim brothers and sisters in Ethiopia are standing their ground in defiance against Meles Zenawi’s assault on their faith. There was a massive demonstration at Anwar Mosque in Addis Abeba Friday with a thunderous and earth-shaking roar. It is hard to imagine how so many people can become this united and voice their outrage with such vigor and determination. It is awesome. It reminds us of the previous uprising in 2005. And it sounds like the coming of a real revolution that is about to engulf Ethiopia like wild fire.
In the face of such fiery defiance, the main question now is how Meles Zenawi is going to respond. And what is more important is how our Muslim brothers and sisters are going to react after the monster kills a few of the courageous Muslims among the demonstrators. We will find out in the coming days and weeks. I would not be surprised if Meles Zenawi bribes a few people from the leadership of Ethiopian Muslims and create division. And then attack or arrest the rest of the leadership. And of course, as usual, Meles Zenawi will kill some Muslim brothers and sisters from the rank and file to intimidate most of the demonstrators if he can.
Listen that earth-shaking roar at Anwar Mosque directed at Monster Zenawi. The million dollar question is, “Will our Christian brothers, our students, workers, and our genuine Ethiopians in the army do the same?” It remains to be seen. If they do, God help them.
