Dear Jawar! you are simply briliant; open, ohnest, articulate, substantive, fair…….what not? I can be sure that you are the source of pride to many Oromos. I couldn’t help, however, to ask why you not turn to be a politican, I mean a politician in practice leading a movement or party? You are bright, young, vigilant, humble, positive and constructive. Why don’t you then alleviate yourself to status of history maker than limit yourself to a story teller? In suggesting this, don’t misunderstand me, I am undermining your present contribution to our national cause. I am trying rather encourage you that you are even more competent to do a higher job which your people badly in need of at this particular historical moment.
You are able or more than able! I strongly suggest Jotee recommendation. I would say Oromo part leaders should contact Jawar for his contribution in leadership!
You two,talking is not as easy as doing the job.Additinal to that,Jawar is not firm in his political stand.For him any group of the Oromo political organization including OPDO are the same;meaning that they are equaly good/bad.That’s very far from the truth.
Kanaafuu “utuu hin hubatin qubaa hin gubatin”.Gurbaa faaruun qarxam hin godhinaa.”Oromoo taatee hangana ,rakkoo malee,yaada kee ibsachuu danda’uu keef siifan gammada” yoo jettan ni gaha.Waanuma fedhehuu haa dubbatuu dandeettii haasawuu fi barreessuu isaaf anis nan quudhaaf.
Jawar belongs to one of the very integrator Oromo commentators, scholars and writers. He is neither DiGa or FiGo. DiGa is simply Diina Gamna, a Woyane cadre, who is payed and doing his job of antagonizing the Oromo liberation camp for the sake of his own advantage, whereas FiGo is Fira Gowwaa, a fool Oromo, doing the same job of Woyane without any payment. When we look at the authors and commentators in the Oromo websites, we just do observe two groups of Oromo nationalists and scholars: the ANTAGONIZERS and the INTEGRATORS. The antagonizers do pray the mantra of polarizing the Oromo liberation forces presenting them as if they are irreconcilable enemies being divided into two Oromo camps: pro-union and pro-independence. Usually the antagonizers cry as if the pro-union Oromo are collaborators to the Abyssinian camp. On the other hand, the integrators do look at the two post-bilisummaa Oromo goals (independence/walabummaa and union/walfaanummaa) of the Oromo as two sides of the same coin (two sides of bilisummaa); they try to assert that both the pro-independence and the pro-union Oromo nationalists are de facto pro-bilisummaa (freedom fighters), who do have two reconcilable alternative objectives. Interestingly Woyane foot soldiers try to camouflage as pro-independent Oromo and curse the pro-union nationalists or the vice versa just for the sake of sawing a discord in Oromo liberation camp. Their motive is clear: Oromo should be divided, antagonized and polarized in order to be kept weak and ruled. What is pity here is that some of our nationalists and scholars simply fall in this trap of the Woyane cadres and do bidding of our enemy without any payment. Actually Woyane has hired a lot of cadres doing the antagonizing job with the millions of dollars being invested on this project. May God open the eyes of our fool antagonizer Oromo nationalists, who are still doing the job of Woyane without payment!
“The outward freedom that we shall attain will only be in exact proportion to the inward freedom to which we may have grown at a given moment. And if this is the correct view of freedom, our chief energy must be concentrated upon achieving reform from within. ” Mohandas Gandhi.
“The rich cannot accumulate wealth without the cooperation of the poor society. If this knowledge were to penetrate to and spread amongst the poor, they would become strong and would learn how to free themselves by means of nonviolence from the crushing inequalities which have brought them to the verge of starvation. ” M. Gandhi
Those of you who try to antagonize the Oromo should know that Jawar is one of the translators of the work of a person who is known as a “nightmare of dictators”, Gene Sharp. He is one of the brilliant Oromos who noticed Gandhi’s observations.
What a beautiful mind has this young Oromo boy!!!!!OMG,,,,I will be disappointed and get irritated if he is not Oromo.May God give him more knowledge and wisdom.I am proud of u dear my brother Jawar.Much respect!!!!Love!!!!!<3
Jawar is very good in political analyses. His articulation is also very interesting. I listened to some of his interviews as well as read most of his articles. His analyses are always very nice but his solution oriented suggestions are mostly very narrow, for instance I remember an article he once wrote under the title “OLF is damaged beyond repair…” The article was very long about 8000 words. He made a very deep analysis and ended up with a very narrow solution oriented suggestions. This is just to mention an example but it is not my intention to comment on that article here.
Regarding his interview on SN Radio with Eyob, I agree with him that Diaspora organizations cannot do much by only remote control from abroad and hence his suggestion that these organizations need to be within the mass to mobilize them is fair. However,
Firstly, as an independent researcher and political analyst, he failed to suggest how this can work.
Secondly, I think he sees all organizations, whether they are liberation fronts or other political organization, with the same eyes.
Thirdly, he doesn’t make any difference whether the objectives of the organizations are Ethiopian (empire) democratization or empire decolonization. On one hand, he too agrees and explains that Ethiopia is an empire but on the other hand failed to explain how this empire can be democratized or decolonized.
Fourthly, I think he didn’t give enough explanation about the question of Oromo people as well as the objective of Oromo national liberation struggle.
Fifthly, how can he be sure that the Oromo people want to stay together with other people or nations in the empire? Did he make his own referendum or does he want to determine the goal of Oromo people before hand?
As a person or as an Oromo scholar there is no doubt that Jawar is very talented, brilliant and capable. I admire his analyses. But as I mentioned above I missed some important points from his interviews.
Very matured comment
Hello Mr. Integrator,
I wonder if some one wrote and gave to you this DiGa and FiGo article to copy it every time you want write some thing. Do you know how much it irritate and become boring when it repeat again and again ? I can say you are one of the Fiigaa Gowwaa who repeat the same word all day long. In case you don’t know how to write in qubee word next time when you write, it is wrong to write DiGa and FiGo. Correct word is Diigaa and Fiigaa.
Jawar, you are as dangerous as yohannes leta & Yohannes Negewo in trying to distract the oromo people from their struggle for self determination. There should be no unity with people who have neither respect nor love to oromiya and its people.You like it or not we shall win our freedom & independence!!
