Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The answer is simple: Islam is the religion of peace.
No, it may be WAY more complicated than you seem to think.
The real question is why are the Saudis making such a gamble to rock the Ethiopian boat?Because nobody will stop them. Do you think the mighty United Nations would dare chastize them? What about the US? The african nations surely wont do anything. Surely the other adherent nations to the "religion of peace" wont do anything.
Saudis have it real good with the current Ethiopian regimeand with everyone else too.
Basically, when you have the world by the short and curlies, you can pretty much do whatever you want.
Lord have mercy, and may these brothers and sisters in Christ find solace somewhere safe.
No, but the Ethiopians could cut them off from the multi-BILLION dollar Saudi agricultural investments within Ethiopia proper and keep the infrastructure as a consolation prize
Foreign investors and corporations, like in much of African aren't allowed to legally own land, they must ALWAYS operate through middlemen, and such is a fragile relationship when we are talking about billions of dollars. Saudis wouldn't want to upset the Ethiopian regime too much, which is precisely why Ethiopian Christian expats are living in Saudi Arabia in the first place, wouldn't Ethiopian Muslims seem a better fit? However the regime is largely Christian (at least in name if not in practice)
Again, I would then suspect the Ethiopian regime is in some cahoots with this..
For example, cadres from the regime have been known to infiltrate and even terrorize expatriate communities across the African continent and even the world at large.
