Ogaden Online: The official homepage of Ogaden on the Internet – Meles Zenawi Incites genocide again in Ogaden

On August 11, 2010, Meles Zenawi, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, in a bid to mislead the international community, stated in a press conference that a particular clan in the Ogaden is fighting against his government and implied that his regime will militarily end this conflict. His similar declaration on June 11, 2007 resulted in the killing of thousands of civilians, burning of scores of villages and unlawful detention of thousands of defenseless civilians. Last week’s statement was a direct message to the army and the government-armed militia once again to aggravate the already bleak human rights situation and to commit genocide in Ogaden. Evidence to the later is the fact that he singled out one particular clan in Ogaden, a genesis of genocidal motives. Meles’s declaration of war to one clan or community in Ogaden as the enemy of the state parallels the Nazis identification of the Jewish as the enemy of the states. The Ethiopian government’s complete control of all media outlets and it virtual control of all federal and local political, military and economic resources, the jamming of all opposition and banning international media in the area further enhances the possible consequence of genocide in the Ogaden.
