Ambassador Adhanom G/Mariam Eulogizing Haile Deroue

  • Peace!

    Hi All,

    The more you read the more you feel less proud, I found it stunning what the Good Dr. Mohamed Kheir said on his facebook page on the occasion of Adwa victory:

    “The 122th anniversary of the Battle of Adua March 2, 1896, is a pride to Africa, but one observes it with mixed feelings. About 6000 Eritrean Ascaris took part in the battle on the side of the Italians. They were simply recruits in the Italian army. Of those about 2,000 were killed and 800 were captured and brutally mutilated by having their right hands and left feet amputated by the Ethiopians. The Italians were held as prisoners and were not touched. They were later repatriated. No one can justify the brutality of the Ethiopian army against the Eritreans”

    Peace!

      Peace!

      Ah, awate forum archives are rich in discussions of Battle of Adwa with our usual very polarized views on that issue between Eritreans and Ethiopians. Here’s what’s new: the propaganda department of Ethiopians is as powerful as ever. I actually read (not in the Onion, not in Cracked magazine but in Washington Post) that the inspiration for the fictitious hi-tech Wakanda of Black Panther is none other than Ethiopia.

      Here comes Eyob now and NO hell NO he will not drag me back into that discussion 🙂 It turns out that our (Tigrinya and Amharic speakers) had long perfected the now lost art of ending an exhausted, dead-end conversation with ይኹነልካ/ይሁንልህ. It’s a great word to buy peace. You should try it 🙂

            With that don’t forget Eritrean fighters released Hunderds of thousands Dergi POW soldiers free and at some time holding them in camp and feeding them by denying food for our fighters because Dergi refused to take them through RED Cross.

            Blink:
            Ok and u are charmed by the release of POW? And why is that they do not release Eritreans prisoners? It is ironic, Eritrean prisoners were treated better by dergi and HS and TPLF than they were treated by their own , so complete facts Blink, do not blink in the face of facts
            Also the bigdest credit of the Eri gheli is not that is released pow, it is no brainer: what it was supposed to do with them anyways, it has to feed them and house them, even massacring them like Hitler did was not economical. But since the Eri prisoners of war or of politics, they were fewer relatively and it was economical to massacre them or keep them indefintley because the cause they raised will be dangerous to EPLF. And this shows that they did not release the pow cus of principle but for political and economic reasons,

          • blink

            Dear isem
            You don’t need to show your skin on every single word about Ethiopia. You see EPLF OR ELF chooses the high road while dergi was dragging dead fighters across city centres and by the way who can forget Alem Bekagn , now you can say anything about the PFDJ prison and what ever you say is acceptable because well that is how it works if you are opposing but to go on praise Dergi shows your knowledge about the past , meeting and talking to people in Sudan and Canada is one thing but experiencing it is simply another level. You see the difference.

        Sal,

        Paul Schamm (the Washington post/Christian Science Monitor reporter on East Africa) is now my favorite ferenj, until he tells a different story. Hell yeah Wakanda is Ethiopia. In fact he implied that Ethiopia is even better than Wakanda.. 😀 My only regret is that there is no a hero named Menelik or Lemma Megersa in that movie. A slight oversight I think.. 🙂 But, they Made that up by naming the main hero T’Chala giving an Ethiopian name (Chala, a common Afaan Oromo name) We can’t have it any other way… 🙂

      Hi Peace,

      Welcome back brother, you have beem missed here at least by me. Every time I get to read/skim through your nickname, “peace”, I feel like I am blessed. “Entai di’a ezi arkika Dr. Kheir rekibwo wedai kan nai gezie adwa endamtsia gena neta kirbit shertitu nab haser yidrbiya??” . “Abti zelowo ci tewesikwo koinu negeru”. We are trying to forget what was done by the derg and HS, why is he trying to take us all the way back to the Adwa war:) It would have been nice if people were trying to find some peaceful coexistance of these neighbors long history back in the days. “Seb ci hasika wen te fatwo eka”.

      Peace out:)

      • Peace!

        Hi Thomi, my man!

        Thank you, I get busy this time of year. I think it is good to know the good and bad side of our history so we can address it in a way that ensures peace and stability for next generation. Don’t you think our generation is paying the price for Hbie’Bie Nai Sowra Eritea? True History is a lesson and can’t be tainted.

        Peace!

        • Thomas

          Hi Peace,

          I agree things should never be like ” price of Hbie’Bie Nai Sowra Eritea” and I hate that. However, the next generation will have enough to know about the Eri and Ethiopia war without going too far to understand the involvement of our fathers in the battle of Adwa. We are wiser now than any time of our history:) The world of diplomacy/give and take goes a long way. Stupid wars are ignited by stupid leaders, the wisest thing to do is stop wars not igniting them and stop spreading hate propaganda. We have in much better condition now because we have an independent land. Let’s just work to rid the murderers who have stolen our independence. It is very easy to understand. We are in trouble because of our offer of 100% trust to the killers. Imagine a thief breaking into your house and steal all your property and then coming to hunt you down because you tried to reclaim what is taken from you. Our Eritrea is living in the adwa like war situation as we are discussing right now. It is very sad, brother man!!

        Greetings KS: You have been reading me and I was saying all this time that TPLF is the worst thing that happened to the people of Tigray. Because of that view and analysis of main, it earned me many enemies. People like Aman-H, Semere, Hayat, Thomas keep telling me that I hate the Tigryans and I am greened eye and the rest of the insults. I am just glad people noticed the truth. TPLF faked everything in Tigray and the fake development that TPLF kept bombarding, got the people of Tigray in to trouble. The rest of Ethiopia think that the people of Tigray benefited at the expense of them. there is anather part to the one I posted and watch it. I said it a long time that TPLF is the enemy of the people and you heard it the same thing from Ato Dawit, he said on his won word ” አቶ ዳዊት ንወያነ ከውድቆም ዝኽኣለ ነጥብታት ብምረት ይገልጹ። ወያነ ቀዳማይ ጸላኢ ህዝቢ ትግራይ ምዃኑ ድማ ኣስሚሮሙሉ። ” go ahead and listen to the other video and he is telling it as is.
        So don’t worry I will not be against the wave. As long as the truth is coming I have no problem.

    Dear Eritreans
    Many human beings are alive with their incredible intelligence but there are many types of intelligence in them , how they use it is simply up the environment and situation of their mental needs. I listen to this guy narrating SG solicited article to who ? i have a clue but i really do not care. My intention about this is to just give my view about the INTELLECTUAL DISHONESTY of one guy who has zero experience of being Eritrean and he is YG . YG is a prolific writer who lost his way to be a philosopher in American universities ,so he go on ramping Eritrean revolution as ” Made of Arabs plus some Muslim league who see Eritrea from a Muslim view. I suspect YG has the single hair of a German girl given to haile silassie, I am certain he is more like Asfaha weldemichael than a philosopher about 1/2 Eritreans . The man is just a lousy old man at his last hour begging to see a bloody war between Eritreans .YG siblings is very ignorant but has the same wish like YG and he is called Tesfatsion the agazian guy, what is their difference is simply up their followers but for me tesfatsion does it for money and YG does it for his childhood expereice about the Ethiopian shewa feudal system.Who is his right mind think Asfaha weldemichael as Eritrean ? does brith place count ? i mean the man said he is Ethiopian and he hade worked for Ethiopia than 99% of Ethiopians who wanted a portion of the RED SEA ,

    YG=Asfaha weldemichael with out Janhoy = Tesfatsion plus intelligence who can do it by writing. All these who admire YG like hayat live behind their own made prison and they will die in that prison. Bad way to die .

    Glory to Eritrean martyrs.

  • Saleh Johar

    Yes Hope,
    I can see from your repy how a second grader (eritrean or otherwise) can do that 🙂

    Let me give you my unsolicited advice:

    1. Don’t try to give your position of PFDJ softness some weight by inserting Saleh Younis’ or Mahmuday’s name. Stand on your own. No one wished to loa a liability on his back, I feel they don’t.

    2. Yo always mention chauvinists, I do: both Ethiopian and Eritrean chauvinists and extremists. Simply throwing stones at others doesn’t absolve one of his outlandish extreme positions.

    3. In my book, praising the PFDJ, and Isaias, even to annoy others, is Hatyat in my small notebook. You do that a lot. If you oppose the PFDJ, then stand firm on that position without implicating others who stand on their own positions.

    4. Meals are served three times a day. In our case, one can have a hundred meals a day expressing frustration and disgust at the PFDJ. You feast on Weyane and TPLF bashing non-stop. Would you reserve some of that for the PFDJ, change for serving a variety instead of a stale Hadari enjera. I say this because you are Eritrean and your concern should be to put out the fire inside your house before you run with your empty bucket to kill the Ethiopian fire. Think about it.

    5. An appeal: could you please try to write one comment, just one, without mentioning other names to implicate them, or to give the impression they condone your views, or to pretend you are in their league, and without mentioning Weyane or TPLF? If you are here to fight Ethiopian internal wars and not Eritrean, I will understand.

    • iSem

      Hi Saleh;
      Come on now.Hope is back and with sense of HUMOUR.
      SECOND GRADER is solicited to answer that because, think about it second grades are running Eritrea, I mean second graders in from THE UNIVErSITY!! Although vet MAHMUDAY disgrees with me he CONCURRS!! in this case Second Grader from UNiversty goes a LONG LONG way in Eritrea,Vet, professor Dr. Writer, Figher, Owner of ShARP PEN SGJ

        Your sarcasm does NOT make any sense to me if I understood you correctly.
        Kab BehAliuu’s Degamiu’
        Let me rephrase this:

        The comment has NOTHING to do with the “Writer,Professor,Fighter,Owner of sharp Pencil”.

        I was answering his question saying:

        “We searched for an image of the magazine and there—my name is the only w=one deleted on the image when every other writer’s name is still there. I am still wondering why that is :-)”.

        My sarcastic answer,which was directed to the Chauvenists,not the Writer or Professor:

        “May be a Second Grader Eritrean will answer the question saying that coz U R a Hardcore Eritrean and U said but the TRUTH…hahahah..
        U see how and why the Chauvinists and the Weyane Warriors have been attacking your buddy,Prof Dr Salih Younis?”.
        Basically it was a COMPLIMENT and Respect to the same Professor and Writer.
        Even though the same Professor/Writer/Fighter,seems to have understood my message but was trying to be diplomatic to appease the Ethiopians, but U,iSem,the crooked and akatari Spokesperson, has twisted things with a sort of a cover up sarcasm.

    • Hope

      Holy COW,Dear SGJ:
      I hope you are using your “Diplomatic Coding/Language System” in this response….to neutralize my ” Arrogance” towards the TPLF.
      I understand it as a Public Figure and as an Ambassador of Reconciliation between the Two people along with Dr Fanti Ghana.
      Thank you for the ADVICE and your points are well taken from that aspect.
      As far as my position on the PFDJ is concerned, here are the FACTS:
      -As a an-X-PFDJ Junior, I know enough about the PFDJ tactics, policies and its brutal Security Apparatus, which directly affected me and my family, not indirectly like it has done to U.
      -I challenged my X-PFDJ Bosses including Yemane GhebreAb face-to-face, not through a Coward Cyber Space Bravado and with a blunt Pencil
      -Case in point, it is Hope, who has taken the RISK to challenge and even demonize the PFDJ and its Cult Leadership openly using the worst terms-based on facts, here in this Forum and at its pro-Websites..
      -As far as “Being myself” is concerned,I thought I have proved/n to you as to who Hope is–by showing you a persona of a Principled person with brutally Honest and Independent/Challenging mind–“despite my disorganized” way of communicating things.
      Mentioning SAAY and Mahmuday is a crime or a weakness in the mind/world of of SGJ?
      If so., let it be.
      And mentioning their names will NOT save me from being ,—what NOW?
      Do I care ?
      You are telling Hope that he is mentioning those two names to appeal to get a support …..?
      Heavens NO.
      I have NO clue as to who they are,my “friend”, beyond reading their astute comments.
      They are Icons and principled Eri personalities…Giving credit when due is what now, in Mr Salih Gadi Johar’s world?
      But if they are “offended” for mentioning their names and admiring them and their well done job,well ,I sincerely apologize for doing so and I promise, I won’t do so any more.
      If I am PFDJ’s Apologist or supporter, don’t I have the right to be and to do so?
      It is NO body’s business, including/ even NONE of your business, with all due respect ,Sir, if I have to support or not any entity let alone the PFDJ,or to be an Apologist of any entity, let alone the entity that has done a better job,relatively speaking than the INEPT and Rotten Mercenary Opposition.

      • Saleh Johar

        Hope,
        You have all the right to support the PFDJ, but that right doesn’t protect you from being exposed for what you are: a PFDJ apologist.
        You can mention anyone you wish, but that is like a kiss of a snake, not good for those you the snake kisses.

        As per your comments, your own admission, you are a PFDJ apologist–wear that badge of shame, shamelessly.

  • Hayat Adem

    Dearest Honorable SGJ,
    Dear All Awatistas,
    Thank you for the article. It is a well thought insight. I had a chance to read the print in English of DISCOURSE and your points there are very constructive and forward looking. In that same journal, I was so delighted to read YG,s “Waiting Game”, a master piece in its own right. I recommend serious and curious readers to find those articles and enjoy them. I am not sure how many people could have accessed those many refined articles in DISCOURSE, but I tell you it is not all politics and Zerisenay’s “20 Minutes with Obama” was my favorite scientific meal that speaks into deep humanity, race and racism. There was one other sarcastic and entertaining piece from Ethiopia’s Getachew Redda, on American politics. I am so happy SGJ’s article is one that made it into the collection of the superb publication.
    Hayat

    • Selam Hayat Adem,

      I am not sure when the article “Ethiopia and Eritrea: The Waiting GAme”, YG, was written, nevertheless the take home message is that he still insists that ethiopia should bring regime change in eritrea. He says that the “regime change policy” will secure the nation while destroying the regime, and on the contrary, the “containment policy” would do the opposite, i.e., unravel the nation state by sustaining the regime, (his words).

      Of course, this is a costly adventure for ethiopia at this stage. To be fair to him, he says that the best chance was lost in 2000 after the badme defeat.

      Nevertheless , the important points i would like to stress is that, it was said M.Z. was reluctant to stage a war to defend ethiopia against dia/pfdj aggression in 1998, one of the reasons for the inter tplf crisis, i think. In addition, it is also said that he ordered secession of the ethiopian armed forces’ drive before the completion of its mission, as dia/pfdj were crumbling and even entertaining to return to the bushes.

      He explains the dangers to ethiopia and eritrea of the “Waiting Game”, the no-war-no-peace policy, i.e., the loss of almost 50% of the kebessa population and the danger of demographic catastrophe, fundamentalists and arabists that are lurking by the sideline, ethiopia’s encirclement, etc.

      Finally, in my opinion (has always been), ethiopia should go to war in self-defense only if attacked again by the eritrean regime, especially at this stage, and regime change is now too late and too costly to entertain for ethiopia to undertake such adventurous actions.

      • iSem

        Hi Horizon;

        Change the regime with war now as you said is disasterous , the train has left: also it was not right during the war to go all the way to Asmara to remove the regime, the Eri ppl would have fought valiantly and war would have elongated, bad for both countries. But in between when Eri ppl were fed up with IA , the ppl would not defend PFDJ, they would not cofuse the attack an attack on them but on PFDJ

        Now we are where we are and if Ethiopia figures its affair, they can still effect change, but not by war but by kicking out all the one man opposition and asking them to clean their house and to unite and then help them unapologically and openly with everything. A stable, strong Eri that is at peace with itself is good for Ethiopia and vice-versa. Although the containment weakened the regime, it took its toll on our people, it weakened them and I do not think that is good for Ethiopia and MZ seems to have understood that as was evident in his comments when they decided to allow Eritreans to attend colleges in Ethiopia

        • blink

          Dear Isem
          How is that you say what we have been saying about the opposition and yet you attack if we said exactly what you stated on the above? Weird # weirdest. Ethiopian soldiers were dying like grasshopper under attack from above or flying over Pacific Ocean. There was no possible way for weyane to inter Asmara. The Eritrean military was confident enough to crash any Ethiopian attack beyond Adi quala and Issaias was almost losing the control of Generals because they refused to withdraw from. The war was between Eritreans and TPLF not between TPLF and PFDJ.

          • iSem

            Hi Blink:
            You sound to me that you oppose the idea of fighting PFDJ from Addis. You lie about Eri ridding TPLF tanks (maybe some did) but u lump that with the idea of opposing. I support the help, u do not
            I believe there was time after the war for regime change and Eritreans woldl go for it, There is principle and there is practically. it is nor pratical now, it was practical at one point
            What the Eri ppl know is the pfdj were packing to go to Sahel so without leadership they (Ethiop) will be in Asmara, how far is Senafe from Asmara? But the war would have escalated to insurgency and would be bad for both. I am consistent

          • blink

            Dear isem
            Where were you at the time of war ? I think most of you think from the weyane salesmen like Alula Solomon . Even from senafe the war would have changed completely. The notion weyane could enter Asmara in 2000 is only sold to people in the west. Do you know the casualty numbers were telling completely different pictures than yours and YG .

            What I oppose from Addis is not the help, what I oppose is still the arm twisting of Eritrea ln oppositions , about the tank , ahmm would you believe if I gave you list of names who were in Enda gergish just 17km from adi quala ? There are people’s name lists who were at the school with weyane ? Time will come when the clouds are gone you will see who was were . Tanks ahmm tanks were available but some other heinous crime were done by Eritreans that even the weyane were shocked.

      • Kim Hanna

        Selam Horizon,
        .
        I just read YG’s article. I was wondering where he was. He is a compelling and persuasive figure. He is a good Eritrean. However, those of us who wish the well being of Ethiopia have to oppose his stance.
        .
        I haven’ read anything of his writings prior to 1997 ..1998–2000. I will venture to say probably it was not much different from our own SAAY’s.
        .
        Well, I they say, success has many fathers, failure is an orphan. Now PIA is the only father.
        .
        In my opinion, the YG’s and to some extent Hayat’s advocacy for the regime change in Eritrea with Ethiopian military would have been and will be a monumental mistake. Did you notice YG apportioning some of the blame in current Eritrea on Ethiopia.
        All we did was repelled a military invasion. We lost a great deal of blood and treasure, but convinced the powers in Eritrea never to do it again.
        .
        Can you imagine if Ethiopia did go to Asmara and changed the leadership.
        There would have been 101 things that would have gone wrong and a unanimous blame for everything that went wrong from that day forward on Ethiopia’s shoulder.
        YG would write a great piece how we screwed up his country, in the usual persuasive way. Nitricc, hope and blink would chime in solidarity.
        .
        The steps Ethiopia took was the most prudent under the set of circumstances.
        We have our own monumental problems that we have deal with. The situation we are in as we speak would have been infinitely complicated to cope with.
        I think the Eritrean problems are deep and fundamental. They themselves need to resolve it.
        I hope our leaders in Ethiopia would be wise enough to leave Eritrea alone.
        .
        Mr. K.H

        • iSem

          Hi Kim:
          to some extent , I agree. If the regime change was during the war.
          Timing, Timing, Timing.
          No Eri supported regime change in 2000, including me
          Now, I do and thousands do.
          Also regime change is not invasion. I commented about this at length before, so no need to repeat
          Your country would be better of had PFDJ was gone and we had a better governmwn. You would not have armed rebels financed by Eri. You may say, they have done nothing, but we do not know that and damage is not just killing a bunch of soliders and bombing. Maybe some of ur uprising and instability is because of PFDJ and you have no idea who will sneak in during the chaos

            Dear iSem,

            This is not a good reason, and it’s lame excuse, that Ethiopia has to invade Eritrea to get rid off opposition who can do nothing.

          He only care about 1/2 of eritrean people and don’t care or against the other 1/2 of the people. Same as u guys(tplf) if anything u think is good for tplf that doesn’t mean it is good for the rest of ethiopia.

            I am Amhara for your records, not just any Amhara, I am a Shoa Amhara, just so that you will remember.
            .
            Y.G is a good Eritrean?
            How and where do I begin.
            I should declare to make you happy that my good Ethiopianet disqualifies me from answering and call it a day. But I wont.
            .
            YG believes that PIA is slowly chocking Eritrea to death.
            .
            He joined the opposition and laid out how PIA is achieving his goal despite all the ineffective attempts to stop him.
            .
            Y.G shows in detail and laments the grip he has on Eritrea cannot be challenged from inside Eritrea.
            .
            He is attempting to convince Ethiopians that it is in their interest to break the grip to save Eritrea, at their own open ended expense.
            .
            Perhaps, these and other reasons may not qualifies him to be a good Eritrean in your eyes, others disagree with you and that is the nagging problem.

            YG is a true Eritrean if there is such is a qualifying thing for the word “true”. He only has a view against the majority Eritreans. In the mind of some, if someone has different view from them, they try to become nationality strippers. I am against some of his views, and I made my argument against his. But to say he is not an Eritrean only comes out from an abnormal minds. YG is genius individual, I happen to differ from him. Do not listen to self-appointed nationality strippers.

      • Hayat Adem

        Dearest Horizon,
        I started reading YG for the last 5-7 years. He is consistent and he has many sound points. Look what is happening in Eritrea since independence. The consequences of EPLF/PFDJ going awry is to the region with most unpredictable geopolitical consequences to Ethiopia, for the most. Ethiopia could have created a favorable political situation in Eritrea with a measured cost to itself. YG’s point on the self-hurting proposal forwarded at the time by Ethiopia to create TSZ is very convincing. His main point that Ethiopia’s policy is serving the regime while killing the country very glaringly true. The only argument we are left with is “whether or not” it is intended. According to YG, the cost of waiting so much and letting IA to go by himself or by Eritreans is much more higher for Ethiopia than when Ethiopia intervenes actively to effect political change in Eritrea. And i thing i tend to agree.
        Hayat

        • Dear Hayat Adem,

          Eritrea was born after a prolonged pregnancy and a painful and bloody labor. Unfortunately, the midwives did not care at all about the survival of the child, but only in its birth. The case of ethiopia and eritrea can also be characterized as an ugly divorce full of hate. The result is the unfortunate situation we see today.

          Factors that are worsening the situation are, on the eritrean side, there are people who bet on the disintegration of ethiopia, and on the ethiopian side, as Y.G. said, there are those ethiopians who count on the meltdown of eritrea due to the containment or the no-war-no-peace policy.

          My personal opinion is that the eritrean train cannot (should not) move unless their is an eritrean opposition force at the driving seat, if it has to succeed and if ethiopia is not to be seen an invading power. Up to now we have seen none.

          Dia/pfdj know very well the weakness of the opposition. In addition, i believe that it knows ethiopia’s dilemma of whether to intervene or not to intervene. Unfortunately, both situations work to the advantage of the weaker part, the regime in asmara.

          The final point is that a solution from outside, whatever the risks of not acting may be, will not be supported by the majority of ethiopians, at least as things are today.

        • Peace!

          HI Hayat,

          Welcome back! Yes YG is consistent only to his own coulda-woulda-shoulda history. Consistent mattes when reflects facts on the ground. You yourself have been articulate and consistent for years defending TPLF to the extent promoting violence against Eritrea, but it turns out you have vouched for failure and regrettable as Syum Mesfin summed up in his speech. Now what is the next journey of consistency, the wind of change is promising and others are stuck:)

          Peace!

      Hello Hayat, an all,

      Please do not disappear, in the usual passive voice, “you were missed” 🙂 No, what I means is, I miss your engagement so much, please do stay put, here.

      The DISCOURSE thing is become a disappointing saga. However,I will not say much here because it is time Negarit is updated. Until then, I am grateful to Ato Tefferi Alemu, who gave the article a different and appealing flavor–and I am also grateful to a gentleman with whom I dealt on the issue. However, there is an inside job that disappointed me so much: my article was defaced and my name was deleted from the cover image…. and knowing enough about what goes in websites, hacking, editorializing, etc, I consider that a serious offense. So, eyyo geza alleni…stay tuned 🙂

      • Hayat Adem

        The Hon. SGJ,
        Thank you so much for stating that you did miss me. That is quite a warm note. I will try my best to stay around. I will tune to the next Negarit and the next edition of DISCOURSE. That magazine is something. i wish you article and YG’s were translated to Tigrigna or even Arabic for a wider reach.

      • Peace!

        Hi Saleh,

        Just curious what has she contributed to the cause this website dedicated for, she rarely mentions opposition groups nor have advocated for emboldening and reconciliation among Eritreans? What kind of engagement is useful to defeat PFDJ because praising YG and defending TPLF has only created more divisions and aroused new resentments.

        Peace!

        • Saleh Johar

          Hi Peace,
          As you know, this is an open forum and if I do not care of peope’s views and convictions as long they debate with civility. And you know the other “ebaters” here.

          Second, I do not like it when some people encite ganging up to attack an individual–HA was a victim of such attack.

          In fact I see her as a balanceer: I do not admire the weyane-TPLF obsession while stealthly showing signs of PFDJ sympathy.

          I would like to say more on my views about TPLF–I do not do it often to avoid the chance of being cheered by the PFDJ sympathizers would cheer…

          • Nitricc

            semere; still doesn’t make sense. besides, who is more obsessed with TPLF, Peace or Hayat? The only time peace mentions TPLF is when TPLF massacres the people of Ethiopia and kudos to him for calling what he sees. For instance Semere is telling everyone that Semere is for justice, yet, have you ever called out TPLF for the killing and massacring they are committing? I think not but why? So, Peace is standing for his principals of injustice is just that injustice! You should try that.

            Semere; I did not hear nor read that PFDJ gunned down innocent people, have you? Sure, I do have a huge problem when PFDJ arrest people with out duo process. And the reason for not having the rule of law is because your TPLF holding the country hostage by not accepting the border verdict. Like I have said, when one is a real just person, there is no border, injustice is just injustice.

How about the disabled fighters gunned down, even TPLF soldiers in assigmment hear Mai Habar were stunned. Just two so that your brain does not fry.

            Hi iSem,
            The arrest of 2000 poor Asmara University students and they were all taken to Wi’a. Those students were not even asking anything except to see their student union president to be released. They were all detained and some of those students die while they were in jail in the unwelcoming weather there. Those who signed a letter of regret for demonstrating got released and those who refused were kept there forever. It was at that time that the regime decided to close the only accredited University the country had. However, I would not waste my time explaining this things to a dummy Oromo boy.

            Nitricc: yes dawit- Tigraway said tplf is the enemy, u believe him, fine, ok also Eritreans, dawit Eritrans told u PFDJ that is the enemy of the ppl but u do not believe them. get ur charger, plug it and then think about the unhinged thinking of this logic of yours and then u can debate with authority.
            also does it mean anything to u that dawit-Tigraway says that openly and he still goes home to his kids and dawit Eritrawi says that and he disappears in Ela-Ero for 17 years and then dies an is buried.

            Dear Thomas
            You have enough time to search for the right people about the 2000 UOA students case , you don’t need to just make such things. There was no a single student who go to wi aa due to semere Kesete , it was about harvesting and greatly about the ministry of education asking the university something that crossed its autonomous administrative rights. Anyone who remember about the president ( Dr.weldeab isahk) will tell you a very different perspective than your totally different perspective, which is all about census, research and other things.

            The money which was 25 nakfa per day which was just too small.
            You know also semere was brought to court in around July or August 2001 ( I forgot the exact date )
            The boss of the university complex explanation was also not helpful because he told that school year was over so he has nothing to do with it. For your information I was in the courthouse to hear the verdict of Semele and I did not go there to support him but just to see how the situation will be handled . Now what followed was a military stick and after that well wuchu and Wiaa but I tell you all this has nothing to do with the release of semere Kesey.

            I am giving you a lesson about a specific issue , actually you can find more information on internet you do not need to make issues from your head.

          • Thomas

            Hi Blink,

I thought I was helping you but you have cemented right over the stone and very hard for any one to ,,, you know .

          • Thomas

            Hi Blink,

            I am not going to “enclalo” with you on this topic. Yes, Semere represented the students and took their case to the university authorities. The authority rejected Semere’s request (students request of making the mandatory services after their graduation) and jailed him. So, The students were calling for the release of their leader. Also, for their request to be reviewed and heard. I think you will be happy if I tell you that the students were jailed because of:

            1) Theft of the university properties
            2) Plagiarism
            3) Breaking the “ma’etot” or refused to do free labor that the mafias requested.

            Are you happy now?

            Dear Thomas
            What you did not understand is that you are already going all over . You just couldn’t get it . You know before 2000 we were all over the country planting trees and also activity on harvesting, but the issue in 2000 was completely different. You still did not get it sir. Semere ahmm well just forget it but I blame myself for trying to give a hint to you . It’s very hard to put a leash on your darkness of muting. Your take on this does look from a person with malformation .

            Hi Blink,

            Like I said I don’t need your lies to prove things, I have the first hand information from someone who was jailed for participating in the demonstration. From this, I can conclude all you do here is make up stories or twist them to fit your evil agendas. We have read you when you tried to twist the case of Aboi Musa and many more. You are the last person to be trusted for anything.

          • blink

            Dear Thomas
            First you are making a false assumption about the case second you jump all over to avoid your false account about the issue . I think awatecom could help you get all the information about this case because I believe they have in their store some where. As I said repeatedly that you have wrong information about the issue. May be you wanted to live in your small world of the weyane goons . You are disfigurement in this case on every comment you made . You wanted to cover your mistake by adding more blemish information . Sadly your synapses is dead so no constant flow of information.

          • Thomas

            Hi Blink,

            I don’t know in which language I have to speak to you to make you understand. I am telling you I don’t need your lies to convince myself. You are proven for twisting and diverting topics to fit your evil agenda. Again, I am telling you I have the first hand witness who happened to be immersed in the unfortunate chaos. By the way, why do you pretend to know everything; and you are very annoying when use statements “I will lecture you”, “I gave you a Geography lesson” and etc. Just know that ignorance is bliss, we will accept you as you are.

            Semere; you know i have never accused you for your brightness; but any one who jumps from a speeding truck, no need to waste a bullet. You how dishonest you are? you didn’t mention the trucks were on the move. only people like Thomas would attempt such an act of self distraction. That was their choice and they paid for it. I don’t expect you to comprehend the situation. Regarding disabled fighters, i don’t condone the act but i understand it. when you trying to establish a new government and a new country, order is maintained at any cost. Why do you think your TPLF is where it is? they are weak and stupid but it is to much to expect TPLF goons like your self to understand it. Your problem is, you don’t have the idea and what it takes to accomplishing tough standard in the ground. Sometimes you must go through darkness and uncomfortable voyage to do what is needed to be done. Again what do you know. you fled the country like a little girl when you heard shots fired. The truth!!!

          • iSem

            Nitricc:
            Thank you
            Ok now let us tear down ur logic
            The trucks were moving, yes,that is why they jumped and got shot, TPLF can say the same, the students were demonstrating and attacking the police, u see how it us absurd. I oppose both, u are too obsessed with TPLF that u gloss over my criticisim
            Now u can understand why a new country kills its disabled, a TPLF supporter can say, he can understand a new country like ethio can gun down their students, u see how ridiculous ur argument is becoming. Forget PFDJ and TPLF for a second just consider the logic and consistence as a thinking person who tries to discover truth
            U support ur argument by quoting dawit tigraway, but he goes to his wife to his kids in his country, dawit -Eritrea who did not say anything close as dawit-tigrway about his government t, he just wrote letter to tell prez to smarten up dies in prison and he is a founder of eri and its struggle, one of its founders.
            In anything, when comparing TPLF and PFDJ for what they did for their people from day one, TPLF fares better, far better. Although TPLF may dies soon,it is good for Tig, like leaves dies in the fall to give way to new and young, the fact the old PFDJ will not die, do not think it is good,it like terminally ill person who needs a mercy suicide. And the reason the useless PFDJ is till around is ppl wih ur line of thinking are defending it inside and outside, TPLF is way better for their own than PFDJ is for their own
            Now although every problem in eri is because of PFDJ, not TPLF, I agree with u that TPLF has at one point damaged eri because the sellouts like IA, Moneky, Sebhat Ephrem and other allowed them.
            Now let us have sensible, logical, evidence based debate,
            And are u sure girls run away from Eri struggle, this is misogyny.
            As you know, i am unappologic for running away, and also mr. Hayat run like little girl, but be thankful to both of us for not dying while fighting our brothers with the help of TPLF, we are stimulating ur brain by this debate, HA held ur hand and now am doing same:-)

            Hi TA
            That is a discussion. In the comment, I was trying to walk through Nitricc’s logic, he uses dawit’s interview to make his point but he contradicts himself when it comes to Eri
            But I think, the power should be shared with fair distribution. So far TPLF had the liberator advantage but if TPLF and the past armed groups are dissolved and parties are organized with national parties inside regional federalism is better. But it is my belief that TPLF has done much better for their ppl than PFDJ has done for its ppl and that is my debate with Nitricc, I have no business in Tigray or Ethio affairs, I only comments on them when ppl say TPLF is the source of our problems to protect pfdj and I tell them examples where TPLF has left their PFDJ to dust, and that I do not have moral opposition if we get help from TPLF to get rid of pfdj provided that we do heavy lifting in our affairs and I remind them that Ethiopia is safer and better for eritreans than their country, ppl do calculation when going to ethiopia. that the economic migrant to ethiopia is bs, yes there maybe among them, but disabled, military leaders are going to ethiopia as eritrea is dangerous to its ppl

            Hi Teddy; Semere is obsessed with TPLF. I don’t know what they have done to him but TPLF, for him can do no wrong. I know they helped him scape from Eritrea to Sudan, rumor has it, dressing him woman’s closing to hide him but why is he defending the thugs of TPLF? Dawit is a billionaire and a true sons of Tigray and he is speaking out. He is saying TPLF is the worst enemy of the Tigryan people. I have been saying that for ever. For Semere, I have no doubt he is Eritrean but he lacks to process the truth. The truth is TPLF is dead and PIA won the battle. Of course, there another stupid by the name of Thomas disregarding every truth to defend his Tigryan wife.
            they are nothing but losers. Eritrea will prevail like always.

            I see what u mean , they talk unrealistic and that makes it nonsense.
            By the way tplf helped “billionaire” dawit too scape from eritrea to sudan ,same as isem.

            Hi Teddy; you are right. They don’t even try to conceal their corruption and looting. look at this person and I wonder what the Ethiopians must feel? I tell you though Semere and Thomas are happy to see this. watch

            U can tell from the dude ghetto behavior his father is one of iilliterate generals son, u see the consequence is not just they r stealing ethiopians money and made the people poor but they turn thier kids in to ghetto useless generations.

            No I have never been to both recently or remotely.
            What are u talking about compare them in their const. Even if I do that ur PFDJ has failed in everything compared to TPLF.
            What enemy are u talking about, TPLF faced huge enemy, they were not supposed to survive till now, but they did and if they die now, who cares, maybe it good for Tigray. PFDJ has 100 percent support and they are on life support, their ppl are dying and the founders are dsappearing, i guess that does not mean anything provided that the Al cappone is alive, TPLF maybe tyranical, but PFDJ is mafiso
            I have never met a TPLF and lying is second nature to nitircc and ur learning from him. 800 eritreans gave their witness that PFDJ is murderous and rapsit and that they are organ traffickers, so please do no lecture to compare tplf and PFDJ, ask the eri in the refugees camps if they prefer TPLF or pfdj, do not take my word for it
            If u want to worhip pfdj regardless what it is doing to our ppl and country it is ur choice, but i warn u that ur brain cells will be soon depleted like nitriccs, u can see nitric’s fluctuating. I have no business in tigray and ethio affairs, but when u guys ignore what pfdj is doing to our country and blame tplf, which is technically not in eri and that there is no war and when ur only hope is the death of tplf, u may get ur wish, but do not assume that ur wish is good for u

          • Nitricc

            Semere; why are then kissing TPLF’s behind 24-7? your lips must bleeding. dude, you are a loser. But feel good you have another loser by the name of Thomas. you two are disgrace to the name of Eritreansim as well as humanity.

            U never been to both countries remotely, this tells me mostly u r talking about propaganda videos and fake news .
            2nd, eritrea and ethiopia have been at war(cold war) since 1998, that tells me how tough was/is for eritrea to protect herself giving the size and tplf’s determination to reverse the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country or replace the gov. With the puppet gov.
            3rd, u know why tplf faced huge enemy inside ethiopia? Becouse tplf want to rule outside of their constituency, in real tigrai they had 100%support until recently.
            Like i said if u not talk about the reality on the ground (people on the ground) , what u saying is just shows how much u r in love with tplf and help yourself by talking the reality not the fake news.

            Selam TA:
            I am not interested in ethiopian politics unless it affects eritrea, they have their country and I will have mine when u guys commit suicide like Hitler. Now why u obsessed with TPLF, let us forget them, talk about Eritrea,if u are one.
            It is pathetic that ethiopia is ur measuring stick, it is telling that u only equate success at the failure of Eritrea.
            Let me tell u a secrete that is making u so uncofrtable, TPLF is ruling u now, so get over it.U cannot even talk about ur ppl
            now let me ask u this and answer them:

            do u believe that eritrea is endanger and that PFDJ has failed it an
            does it matter to u the eritrean are disappearing by PFDJ or is this the cost o doing business for u guys.

          • Teodros Alem

            Selam isem
            Honestly i believe eritrea’s #1 problem is the war(cold war) with ethiopia(tplf) . the gov probably a dictator(i don’t know much about it) who has a good motive for the country on its own ” dictator” way.
            But some of u guys (u,aman h, thomas ,ms hayet and so on)the oppositions ur true concern is in a big question. From u guys wrighting here anybody can see ur true motive which is u hate the eri gov not because his undemocratic rule but u hate it to save tplf.
            If tomorrow tplf and eri gov normalize relationship am sure u , aman h, Tommy …..will be supporters the next day.
            This is how i see u from ur conversation here in awate.
            In short the reaaon why u(isem) hate eri gov is Because eri gov is enemy to ur beloved tplf.but am sure there r a lot of people who oppose the gov because of they sick freedom but not u , aman, tommy , ms hayet and so on.

          • iSem

            TA:
            U said u do not know if eri governent is dictator or not, then do not debate with ppl who know, i mean ppl like me who know their country
            I wish eri government was just dictatorship, that is an improvement. The eri government is mafia, oh that is even an insult to the mafia, who protect their family,u cannot mess with the mafia family, they will slaughter u like a sheep.
            U are just an other paid agent, who probably came directly through the asmara airport to spy in the diaspora eri.
            And about me loving tplf, i wish i had some blood from tigray, i would capitalize on it instead of being part of a country that disappears its founding fathers, I would chose to be tplf than share a country with ppl like u
            Now, let me tell u, there is something called culture and tone, and a country that murders its founders has no future and because of pfdj and its moronic supporters like u, eritrea will be never be fixed any time soon.

            What i was trying to say about the gov was i don’t know much about it but i think it is a dictator . do u know ethiopia”s founding fathers? Tplf consider them as enemy of tigrai.

            Always on guard !
            A balancer for your weyane obsessed messages and those who share your views.

            The last sentence you quoted is not attributed to anyone by views. Don’t connect disconnected sentences. And try to Hiatus from the weyane topic and focus on the tormentor if Eritreans.

          • Nitricc

            Hey SJ; I really believe that TPLF is the source of our every Eritrean misery. I don’t have a problem with the war, I know it is wrong and benefited no one but it happened. But what follows is what gets me. If TPLF accepted the ruling of the border, there won’t be indefinite national service, the youth would have stayed at home, PIA won’t have any reason or excuses not hold an election, constitution and the rule of law. I can go on but you get my drift. So, not that I am obsessed with TPLF but I just understood the source of the problem what Eritrea is facing. believe it or not TPLF is responsible for the misery of Eritrean people. The end of story!!!!

            Selam Nitricc,
            .
            Wow…Wow..woe
            .
            “……PIA won’t have any reason or excuse not to hold an election, constitution and the rule of law. I can go on but you get my drift.”
            .
            I get the drift all right, I wish you had gone on. I read it and got severely discouraged.
            Let us take your belief and analysis to its conclusion.
            .
            When TPLF is cut down to size and the Oromo EPRDF gives Badme back to Eritrea, PIA will hold free and fair election, ratify the constitution and obey the final and binding rule of law of the country.
            .
            Is that what you are saying? I want you to say it, sign it and get it notarized. I have a feeling we might come back to it.
            .
            Mr. K.H

    Gash Saleh,

    Wow! THE Teferi Alemu? Do you know Teferi? He is a legend actor, journalist and most respected broadcaster in Ethiopia. He and his partner Meaza Birru are the most authoritative media house owners. Sheger Radio is the most widely listen radio on that country and through a phone app in the diaspora. They are very beloved by all people across the board. O am ecstatically happy they discovered you. I reackon a day that you interviewed by Meaza Birru. That would be an interview of the year for everyone to listen to. Don’t you agree Amde, Kaddis Horizon?…

      Kokob,
      This is an article I was solicited to write for the Ethiopian Discourse publication three years ago. It finally came out last year and someone did an audio “rendition” of it. We searched for an image of the magazine and there—my name is the only w=one deleted on the image when every other writer’s name is still there. I am still wondering why that is 🙂

      • Ismail AA

        Selam SJ,
        That seems strange. Looking for circumstances that caused the omission would be worthwhile try if one takes what Eyob Medhane’s testimony in consideration.
