This is a follow-up of my first article entitled ‘Ethiopia at Risk: Radical Islam Harbored in Ethnic Extremism’  In that article I showed how the radical Islamist Jawar Mohammed undermined  Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and his democratization process and put Ethiopia at risk.  Jawar and his team members carefully orchestrated a plan to implement the demise of Ethiopia.  It was in 2016 Jawar and his team gathered and declared in what they called “Oromia National Charter” that Oromia is colonized by Ethiopia. The atrocities we see now in Ethiopia did not start now, it is carefully planned.

The piece ‘Toxic Propaganda Targeted at Ethiopia and Ethiopian Unity: the Divisive Strategies’  written in 2017 clearly shows these strategies employed to destabilize Ethiopia and establish Islamic State in Ethiopia under the cover of ethnic Oromo state.  According to the article and as it has become evident through time, the following are some of the strategies Jawar and his team executing:

  1. Creating a political movement on the basis of Islam and ethnic lines;
  2. Fighting Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity;
  3. Attacking Ethiopian unity, Ethiopian history, and everything that symbolizes Ethiopia;
  4. Using pseudo-academic discourse and misinforming and misleading the regular people; and
  5. Opposing any movement that leads to unity among Ethiopians of various backgrounds.
