In a press conference held at the Capital Hotel in Addis today, the delegation led by His Highness Abune Abraham confirmed that the war between Hamas and Israel does not pose a threat to tourists or pillagers because it is taking place far from biblical and historical sites. The delegation had visited the holy places in Jerusalem two weeks prior. The party made visits to important Israeli museums as well as Golgotha, Calvary, Der Sultan, St. Mary’s Church, and other nearby locations in Jerusalem.
The israil ambassador to Ethiopia who were also presented in the press conference organized by tour operators and church representatives said that any one who wish to visit Israel can go with out any fear because his country security and the sater of peace situation is favorable to anyone who is coming from abroad for visiting or doing another business.
The Israeli ambassador to Ethiopia, Aleleign Admasu, said at the press conference organised by tour operators and church representatives that anyone wishing to visit Israel can do so without fear because the nation’s security and peaceful environment are welcoming to tourists and business travellers from abroad.
The ambassador asserts that one of Israel’s greatest achievements is its capacity to maintain internal harmony in the face of conflict, and the testimony of the delegation led by Abune Abraham, who made a safe return, serves as a real-life illustration of how Ethiopian tourists can feel secure travelling to Israel.
“Hamas brutally murdered civilians, including children, after infiltrating Israel. There were more than fifteen thousand missiles fired at Israel. We are fighting to make sure that Hamas never threatens us again.
The ambassador was questioned by journalists about why his administration had not resolved the dispute involving the Deir Al-Sultan monastery between Egyptian and Orthodox monks. “On the monastery issue, what can I say is Ethiopian government should bring the matter to Israel government to resolve the monastery dispute issue but also repaint some of the religious sites which are being used by Ethiopian Orthodox Tewhado church,” said the ambassador.
The ambassador was also questioned by journalists about why his nation hadn’t established a museum in Addis to highlight the historical and cultural connections between the two countries.
The ambassador said he has been in contact with the Addis Ababa administration on the prospect of building a museum, and they are now awaiting a response.
Lique Maemeran Fantahun Muche, CEO of Orthdox Mass Media, claimed there is no danger associated with celebrating the Lord’s birthday in Jerusalem. We have firsthand knowledge of Jerusalem’s safety, thus we urge followers of Ethiopian Orthodoxy to travel there fearlessly.
