It would greatly be an understatement to call the heart aching situation in Tigray to call it with mere phrases like “painful , dire, concerning , saddening , catastrophic ,etc”. It is way beyond that even words and feelings fail to express it.

It’s been almost two years now. Since Ethiopia and its allies started their genocidal war on Tigray. Shockingly , it was soon after Abiy won his Nobel peace prize. But, the world ,that even makes rules to protect animals let alone to humans, doesn’t care at all. Ironic !

Every evil , even deafening to just hear, has been done to Tigrayans in this country. They were burnt alive, stoned to death, slaughtered like a lamb, mass murdered , incarcerated and raped at industrial scale etc. This is not to mention that the profiling , classification ,the total black out , internet and phone service prohibition , confiscation of banks and no access to humanitarian aids. Tigrayans are being denied to even survive.
For two years now..that it is happening .

On top of that, Abiy and the notorious dictator Isayas are shelling and carpet bombing towns which nothing but civilians targeted. Children and elders wake up to the blaring noise they don’t understand.
Ethiopia has become nothing but the most expression of human evil.

Humanity ?

It is defined as the quality or state of being kind not only to people but also to animals. Humanity is where our moral standards are based despite our ethnic or color backgrounds.

Based on the above definition of pure or genuine humanity , how is the world,especially the international community, reacting to the current genocidal war on Tigray? For your answer- nothing better than a mere “concern “. the world knows how they are responding to the Ukrainian war.

The hands and the voices that immediately responded to Ukraine in order to defend themselves , what is holding them not to do the same to Tigray? Isn’t it their task to stop genocide anywhere ? In the worst case scenario , in Tigray, hunger and rape are being used as weapons of the genocidal war. And now, fresh mass killings ,rapes, bombings and shelling are being carried out recklessly . But, the international community is giving a deaf ear. Why? Does humanity know races,differ colors? .They should know that they are enabling the Tigray genocide by not stopping the genociders. There is no wonder why the director general of Who said that maybe it is because Tigrayans are blacks for the reason why the international community is failing to act. Genocide has also nothing to do with geo politics. Every one should care and act despite where it happens, and whom is it happening to. It is high time that the world stopped the Tigray genocide and question the perpetrators.
