Three more Ethiopians killed by Saudi police. The killing of Ethiopians continues in Saudi Arabia Three more Ethiopians killed in Saudi Arabia

Three more Ethiopians have been killed in Saudi Arabia. Thousands of Ethiopians are leaving the middle east country after scores have been killed in the past few days. Hundreds more injured and women are being raped in front of their families.

It is astounding and mind boggling the international community is so silent about this shameful actions of the Saudis.

"The act of killing innocent civilians is uncalled for, we condemn that," Foreign Ministry spokesman Dina Mufti told reporters, saying he had been informed of the death of three Ethiopian citizens.

Saudi Arabia, stop the barbaric treatment of Ethiopians NOW!

We at Tigrai Online would like to condemn in the strongest terms possible the horrible attack against Ethiopians residing in Saudi Arabia. This murderous campaign by the Saudis is a consorted effort by the state security apparatus and civilian vigilante gangs armed with knives, guns and sticks going house to house dragging Ethiopian women, children and men and abusing them. Some has lost their lives in the horrible situation and many more are injured.

Ethiopians hunted by Saudi police and civilians. The killing of Ethiopians continues in Saudi Arabia Ethiopians hunted by Saudi police and civilians. The killing of Ethiopians continues in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabian police and civilian are hunting Ethiopians and killing, gang raping, beating and torturing them.

These video shows a woman being raped by gangs while others are brutally beating the men.

People are thrown to the streets just because they are Ethiopians. Women and children are without shelter, food and water.

Women are being gang raped by eight and ten men in front of their kids in a broad day light after their husbands are taken away beaten or killed. This could not be allowed to continue in a country that preaches peace to the world.

"Domestics ... safety first!" 

Abdullah Sayel

Published — Monday 24 March 2014

The Ministry of Labor just finished signing an agreement with India, the Philippines, Indonesia and Sri Lanka. This has to do with house labor and its new regulations. In the next few weeks, similar agreements are to be signed with Nepal and Vietnam. During the next few months, more agreements should be sorted out with Djibouti, Comoros and Cambodia.

The Saudi families are divided into two at the moment. Some are pleased to hear the news and many others are not. The accidents, which had to do with many Ethiopian house workers, left many doubts about welcoming new nationalities. The Filipino, Indian, Sri Lankan and Indonesian labor is known and welcomed by Saudi houses. But when it comes to other new nationalities, society now is more conscious than ever.

I believe that long queues are expected at the four known and appreciated providers. This will of course limit the chances of other nationalities as the question of safety for Saudi families comes first. It is also important now to raise awareness on both sides, concerning culture, lifestyle and beliefs.

This sounds a little far-fetched, even for Saudi Arabia.

Slaves are allowed. Black slaves were converted into Eunuchs. There was no call to end this practice and it only stopped when the Ottoman empire collapsed.

Jobs?

Ethiopia and Kenya aren’t that far apart. Where is Barry? Conflicted interests?

I’m sure the 0 administration will condemn this right away.

No wait. That would be only when White Christians are the agressors.

It’s complete BS.

> Addis Voice can now reveal that the supremacist hatemonger hiding behind computer screens and spreading the tyranny and venoms of the Tigrai People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). He is none other than Mikael Abai, a resident of Denver, Colorado. Mikael Abai is a devout foot soldier of the TPLF, the ethno-fascist tyrannical group that is robbing, abusing, killing, jailing and torturing Ethiopians.

http://ethioforum.org/tigrai-onlines-hatemonger-mikael-abai-unmasked-by-abebe-gellaw/

Around 1983, the core cadres of TPLF founded the Marxist-Leninist League of Tigray in the line of the Albanian Party of Labour. They also incorporated the name Woyane in the title of their organization as an intentional reference to the Woyane rebellion, a revolt in Tigray that arose and was crushed in 1943.[14]

Following the success of the TPLF in 1991 in gaining control of Ethiopia, and the collapse of communist regime in Albania, the TPLF dropped all references to Marxism-Leninism. The leadership of the TPLF claims that the MLLT dissolved when the TPLF-backed Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front took power after the collapse of the Derg in 1991.

Aba Mekarios the Arios Bishop visited Eritrea to sneak in to Ethiopia via Asmara. The evil Bishop sought there was a chance to overthrow the Ethiopian government when the late Prime Minister died in August 21, 2012.

Background.

Saudi Arabia had been a magnet for illegal aliens from Ethiopia, but had announced a crackdown and deportation for as many as 100,000 by November-December of last year, which was the end of a 7 month amnesty period for Ethiopians to voluntarily leave.

With 91 million citizens, Ethiopia is Africa’s second most populous nation and also one of the continent’s poorest; the majority of people live on less than two dollars a day.

Though it is one of the fastest growing economies on the continent, about 27 percent of women and 13 percent of men are jobless. Facing limited job prospects and harsh economic realities back home, large numbers of Ethiopian men and women head to the oil- and gas-rich Arabian peninsula each year seeking work.

The UN refugee agency says that more than 51,000 Ethiopians risked their lives this year alone (2013) on the risky sea crossing across the Gulf of Aden, where reports are common of ships sinking or refugees drowning after being thrown out too far from the shore.

It is not limited to Ethiopians, either. In December, Sudan said more than 11,000 workers had returned voluntarily after the amnesty ended.

My husband and I lived in Saudi Arabia for five years...in the Eastern Province. My husband worked for ARAMCO. I never saw that kind of treatment to ANYONE but that means nothing.

However, I didn't think the Saudi police had the guts or brains to attack ANYone, let alone TARGET a group. They often have their stripes/rank SAFETY-PINNED to their uniforms. They really are pathetic. They really ARE a bunch of "do-nothing-mystifiers"

Also, the Saudis can't afford to alienate ANY group willing to go work in that hot, miserable, bug infested, nasty-well-water hell-hole.

As for their "miliary," they are worse. When that "captain" in their "air force" actually SHOT someone down, he became an INSTANT national hero. Whodda thunk he even knew how to fly...but he did learn here in the U.S.A.

I don't think we are hearing the truth from the Kingdom. We never heard it before, the whole truth, so why would they SUDDENLY change and say truths now?

What is REALLY sad is that things are SO horrible in Ethiopia that the Ethiopians feel that working in the KSA would be a good thing for them. THAT is sad.

My guess is these Ethiopians are Orthodox Christians of the Ehtiopian Church.

How I hate those Islamic Scum.

Well, I never lived in Saudi Arabia. But as this kind of behavior towards Christians is endemic to all Islamic societies, it hardly surprises me. As employees of Aramco, my guess is your husband and you were insulted from the “real” Wahhabist nightmare.

Religion trumps ethnicity with the ObamaImam. There won’t be a peep out of him.

It takes a lot of courage to be a Christian in an Islamic “nation”.

We ARAMCONS had a priest on-camp who said daily Mass. The ARAMCONS also had a vicar for the six Anglicans and a minister who took care of the flock of all the Protestants.

Fridays were "holy days" as our "weekends" were Thursdays and Fridays. So I was off those days and was supposed to go to Mass on Fridays.
I rebelled. I wanted to go to Mass on SUNDAYS!

Well there WAS daily Mass so I would leave my work and walk the 3-minute walk across the street to the club-house where Mass was said on SUNDAYS.

My co-worker, Harry, a Catholic from India, got SO annoyed with me because he said that I should go to Mass on FRIDAYS like everyone else did. I objected and continued to go to SUNDAY Mass at 9:00 A.M. I would ALWAYS make up the 20 whole minutes at my lunch hour. I NEVER failed to make up the time.

Well, Harry got fed up with me and said he was going to "tell on me" to our Muslim boss, Muhammad Hussein. And he did.
Harry, my Saudi boss, Muhammad Hussein (They only got "surnames" when ARAMCO insisted.) and I met in the hallway and Harry let loose with my leaving for Mass on Sunday mornings.

I will NEVER forget Mohammad's answer to Harry. He said: "Harry, God is number one. There is always time for God. Cloud Mountain (obviously not my real name) can go to pray whenever she wants to."

I don't know WHOSE jaw fell farther or faster, Harry's or mine. So I did go to Sunday Mass. In fact, I thought, if I REALLY believed that the priest has the authority to call forth the Holy Spirit to change bread and wine into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus and WE have the privilege to consume them...WHY wouldn't I want to go to DAILY Mass? Well, I did want to and I did from then on.
I still go to daily Mass years later, here at home in the U.S.A.

Imagine, getting that kind of faith and boost in the Land of the Muslims, from my very kind and God-loving Muslim boss, Mohammad Hussein.

God REALLY does work in mysterious ways, doesn't He?

After what she told the Chicoms, I’m sure Michelle will get right on this since she’s all about inequality and suffering.

There certainly are individual Muslims who may be good people.

But the belief system itself is inherently evil in the form in which it is practiced throughout the Islamic World. You can’t form generalizations from a handful of exceptions.

Neither can you.

I understand your attitude because it's so prevalent. I also believe that you are most probably a good person...and smart since you are on the FR.

But, I tell you: NO ONE can have the REMOTEST idea what it's like to live over there. I wrote my letters to family and friends and they COULDN'T believe it and only knew that I wrote what I saw and experienced and KNEW me and knew that I wasn't kidding or joking around. It was WAY too bizarre to make up. Truly! :o)

I LIVED in the middle east FIVE long years so I met, worked with and knew Saudis for longer than a few days, weeks and months. One learns a lot in FIVE long years.

You condemn a belief system because you don't like it and consider it evil.
However, GOD created those souls and ALLOWED their belief system to emerge. I don't have it in me to condemn God' decision like you do. Good and bad souls [bad souls: a.k.a. jerks] ABOUND in every culture, country and civilization.

We are certainly to DISCERN good/bad and right/wrong. But does one simply make decisions about a faith (or anything else of some import) because one doesn't LIKE another belief system....ESPECIALLY when one's acquaintance and knowledge of it is NOT from a prolonged LIVING experience of it?
I don't.

God bless.

Note the comment on the same thread but from "Eaker to cloudmountain."
Eaker: "Muslims cut off Christian’s heads and rape children. That is all I need to know to want them all dead. ALL DEAD!"
From Cloud Mountain: "Eaker" just has NO clue. GLAD I don't know him or he's not my neighbor. He's a sad case.

I read that thread and contributed to it.
Things don't change much over there. I understand people's hatred of them. But, since I lived and worked over there I WOULD have a different take.

An old friend of mine and her petroleum engineer...DOCTOR of Petroleum engineer husband, lived in Iran for several years. I asked her if the Persians were as awful as we always hear they are.
She paused for a moment and said..."Well, I lived and worked with them and got to know so many wonderful people over there that I don't think MY (mah, she's from the south) point of view is going to be the same as the USA folks who were continually fed nothing but negative things about the country."
She said that she would never want to LIVE permanently over there, but that those years were good years for her and her husband.
She was correct. It's much the same with the USA vision of the KSA.
