Any Ethiopian taking lead from any Egyptian, be it muslim or chirstian, will have to be examined by a psychiatrists. Egypt has been a perennial enemy of Ethiopia. Egyptians has nothing but disdain for Ethiopia for their interest was in keeping our country primitive and subservent to their ' national interest' which implied that all efforts should be made to keep it backward. How else but by controlling the religious hieryarchy under their tight grisp could have the Egyptians, who are known around the World for their lies, back stabbing, could have controlled Ethiopia. I blame the Egyptian synod for having controlled the Ethiopian Orthodox Church for 1600 years and making our country poor and desoloute. there lies the fact. Simple examples:1. how else can one explain the numerous and overwhelming religious days when the ethiopian farmer was prohibitted from tilling his land while his counterpart( the Egyptian felani worked day and night to tend to the land along the lower Nile delta) 2. how else can one explain the fact the Church, until recently, concluded any productive work like craftmanship, trade were charachterized as 'evil deeds' which benefiteed the Egyptians who dreaded the utilization of the Nile waters even though they had the know how of utilising simple but effective methods of irrigation before anyone else. The fact that the Ethiopian orthodox church which was misled by foes of the state who were bankrolled and controlled by the Muftis and khalifs of Egypt should make it examine its relationship with these folks from the Nile Delta. The arch enemy of Ethiopia is Egypt.It succeded in dismantling Eritrea and is working day and night with Eritrea to reck our Nation. Even though the muslims were at the helm, the Chrisitans, some of whom were of European ancestry pulled the plug. Rem Butros Gali?
