    Kamal’s group explicitly announcing an ‘International self-determination’ as its goal is not wrong in principle! They have right just like the God-given right of the Dhugaasa’s faction to persue its goal of ‘External self-determination’. Of course Daud’s group being open for both types of self-determination and stressing a REFERENDUM on the two options is a conciliatory position. The last decission on the issue must be left for the Oromo public at large! I think what angered Jawar and the other Oromo nationals, who are opposing the move of the General is the Euphoria and the premature celebration of the Abesha camp! The fool Abeshas just tried to hide their own giving up of the Centeralism position and their accepting of the nation-based federation, which they vehemently used to oppose. Actually the position now taken by the Kamal’s group is not new for the OLF, but the move of the Abesha camp to this position of accepting the ‘federal republic of Ethiopia’ or the Internal self determination is new! Simply put the Oromo camp is the one who won in the negotiation between the Kamal’s group and the G-7, it is not a victory for Abesha camp!!

    Just listening to the interview Kemal Gelchu gave to ESAT TV said it all. It gave me a clear understanding of how his little mind works, how simplistic and hollow his believe and understanding of what Oromomummaa and bilisummaa means. One thing that really shoked me was hearing him say, his likes had nothing to grumble and complain about the Annoollee Massacre. he said that was in the past. He unashamedly added that if the boold line is counted may be some of the victims might had been his relatives. By this he was trashing the oromos who try to make sure that genocidal history is not forgotten and he is telling them to shut up. A kind of even as an Arsi myself I no longer dewell on it.
    His second moronic statment was when he tried to degrade and abuse the OLF as organisation: he ranted that the OLF was just clinging to the idea of Self-determination and waiting on the side without doing nothing and craving for some change to come in Ethiopia so that they will be invited by the victors. He elaborated this by saying the Dawud group think they are so important and needed and they will be called if any change comes in Ethiopia to participate in it. Of course every political group in Ethiopia knows that any attempt to exclude OLF in any future dealings will come to nought. Only the dufus former Woyyaannee servant went too far in trashing the OLF and Oromo.
    Good luck to you Mr Galchu. I promise you you made a very regrettable move by siding with the bloody-minded, dogmatic and rigid neftegnas who r dreaming to bring back the old neftegna system.
    Victory to the Oromo people
