Ethiopian authorities arrested Sunday six Saudis on suspicion of terror financing. Saudi Gazette said, the six Saudi nationals were distributing charity to Muslims in the Ethiopian capital.
A senior official at the Saudi Embassy in Addis Ababa told Al-Watan Arabic daily over telephone that all six Saudis were detained while distributing donations. A lawyer appointed by the Saudi Embassy is following up with investigations and trying to get the Saudis released, the paper said.
Last Saturday, Ethiopian police clashed with scores of Muslims protesters complaining that the state is interfering in their religion, witnesses and officials said. The protesters, some wearing masks, blocked the entrance of the Anwar Mosque in the west of the capital Addis Ababa and hurled stones at riot police who had surrounded the compound after noon prayers.
Thousands of Muslims have staged sporadic street protests in the capital since late last year, arguing that the government is promoting an alien branch of Islam, the Al Ahbash sect, which is avowedly apolitical and has numerous adherents in the United States.
The government denies promoting Al Ahbash, but is determined to prevent Islamic militancy spilling over from neighbouring Sudan or lawless Somalia.
The filthy saudis....again.
Check out the 1st comment: The Saudies invest on this long time a go while Ali Abdo was the mayor of Addis. by that time they built more number of mosques than what previously been in Ethiopia. and the gov. was quite. they start teaching children there extremist way 15 years a go and now they are graduated on degree with religion and started to show there true colour. It is just like pay back time. They have done this in all over Africa. Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt... all are seeing the result now. They are using Gov.. official as well the wife of Junedin sado is been detained when she comes out from Saudi embassy with a hundred thousand of dollar. So guys wake up this will consume the life of your family soon if it didn't stop here.
BUT WAIT! The saudis' have tall buildings & they're "progressing"! It's history in the making!
They seem to understand the threat of islam & the Gulf Arabs.
“To the Ethiopian government and people.
We are saying for 21 years since EPRDF took power about this very serious issue. But the government didn’t listen. Instead it was doing things that were/still are the best breading ground for them-to the desert creatures that are making the world the very dangerous place to live.
We still are saying to the government that only Arabs are the worst enemies to Ethiopia using their demon religion called Islam. Don’t cheat by them when they show you money comes from selling the oil. Our fathers did everything for thousands years to protect our nations from these creatures. But the last 21 years they are multiplying like rats and termites in our country and now they feel, they are in the position to attack and take over our nation.
This is how the Arabs sick brain thinks and works. First they come in as if they are peaceful, then when they become with more people and feel they are strong, then they start to attack to take over the nation. This is the way how they came in North Africa and elsewhere.
It seems Europe and USA are now defeating them while for the last 10 years they were on attacking mood from all sides against the west. Ethiopia also must defeat these desert creatures and expel them to the hell desert they came from and belong to. We don’t need them. As long as the Arabs are around, be sure, we are in a very big danger on daily basis....”
We should do that.. I wonder what is the value of those millions of mosques those people are building here.. maybe convert them all to Pig-fil-A’s.
