A reader asked me on my inbox [why do you support the TPLF?]. Please any objective comment or question better to be posted on my relevant article, because it is not a personal matter, and for public benefit, and that saves my time. My answer is:
I researched deeply into the history of the region, and I wrote about it. I found that TPLF truly represents the Tigray people, who are from my researches the origin of the Amhara, Tigrinya, Jabarti and Tigre peoples.
TPLF and Tigray have great patriotic and religious history and achievements despite the continuous assaults from foreign Turkic Akkadians and Bedouin Amorites and Persian Abbasids since 900 AD and before that during the D’mt colony (1000-400 BC).
My opinion and support for Tigray and TPLF is not biased but based on respect and gratitude for their patriotic and religious heritage.
And I honestly believe that they should lead other Punt Lands peoples and they represent hope for the region to get rid of the consequences, corruption, criminality and deformities created by the bloody invasions of foreign bandits for 3000 years, which made the region synonymous with slavery, poverty, famine, feudal system, refugees, bloodshed, cruelty, civil wars, great disparities, ethnic attacks and underdevelopment.
Foreign bandits and their slavery-feudal elite collaborators now are controlling the Amhara, Tigrinya, Tigre, Jabarti, Afar, Oromo and Beja peoples.
This is the basic cause of Ethiopia’s total failures in almost all fields, despite Ethiopia’s and Eritrea’s huge wealth and human resources. These have to change quickly.
And the Tigray and TPLF must be treated fairly and given the leadership that they deserve but is now in the hands of Amhara elites who have foreign interests and backing, and a very shameful history that is devastating Ethiopia and the region.
