Recording Ethiopia's Red Terror, The Founder of somali Hawiye Clan USC terrorist and SNM isaaq clan tribal entity sepretest somaliland terrorist

In the late 1970s Ethiopia's Marxist military rulers tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands in brutal repressions. Now, one survivor is trying to create a permanent online archive of the so-called Red Terror using the documents the Communist regime, known as the Derg, left behind, reports the BBC's Elizabeth Blunt.

Hirut Abebe-Jiri was in her early teens when Emperor Haile Selassie was overthrown.She had had a happy and privileged childhood, part of a well-off and well-connected family.But the revolution made people like them liable to be viewed as suspicious.The revolutionary guards took her uncle first, then her father, then they came for her and her younger sister."I was shaking and my sister was holding my hand," she says."They took us into a kind of office room, with two desks, and Kelbessa [a senior official] was there."They were greeted by a horrifying sight. An 11-year-old boy from their neighbourhood was trussed up on a broomstick and suspended between the desks.He had been badly beaten and was bleeding and vomiting."When we saw him, we just froze. And they asked him a question, when he was like that, in that position, they asked him: 'Which one?' And he said, 'Hirut'."With that, Ms Hirut's sister was taken away, Ms Hirut was trussed up between the tables and the beating started."They were asking me about this gun which the boy said he had given me, and until this day I didn't know anything about the gun, so honestly I couldn't tell them," she says."Finally they started putting water on me. Then after that when they hit you, your skin starts cracking, and the blood starts coming out. That was the painful time, and I was in and out of consciousness."The beating went on all night. It was daylight by the time they dragged her out of the torture room, and round to a cellar under the building where the women prisoners were kept.She had been beaten so badly it was several days before she could even walk as far as the toilet.

Hotel discovery

Nowadays thick weeds grow round the back of the building - still used as the local government headquarters - and the door to the cellar where the women were kept is locked.

A faint slogan scrawled over the door is still visible: "Ka hullum belay, Abiotu!" It means: "And above everything, the Revolution!"At the far end, there is a small store room where they put Ms Hirut's friend Elizabeth and her younger sister.Ms Elizabeth's sister, just 15 years old, was to die there, but the two other girls both survived.On their release they left the country. Ms Hirut went to Canada and Ms Elizabeth to the US, where they tried to forget the horrors they had suffered and build new lives.And that might have been the end of it. But one day Ms Hirut got a phone call from an Ethiopian friend who said she was sure she had seen Kelbessa Negewo, their torturer, in a hotel in Atlanta.Ms Hirut and Ms Elizabeth travelled to Atlanta and sure enough, it was him.A faint slogan scrawled over the door is still visible: "Ka hullum belay, Abiotu!"

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
