Few months ago, I had a lively debate with a friend of mine regarding the relationship few Ethiopians in the opposition camp are establishing with Mr. Issaias Afeworki. My friend who I didn’t see for a long time, and whom I knew for more than 30 years was debating ardently in support of these individuals. Though I was surprised with his view, I was more mesmerized by his justification than anything else. After my recent postings on Ethio Media website, among the barrage of e-mail’s I have got one was my friend’s email. Once again, he wanted to share his “wisdom” why it is essential for the opposition to be under the wings of Asmara. Though I was thankful for the time he took to enlighten me, I found similar justification from some of the comments made regarding the position I took. One more time, I wanted to go public why it is wrong to ally with Issaias with the concept of “The enemy of my Enemy is my friend”.
