Purveyors Of Pretence And The Curse Of The Minority

Much like civil war and proxy war prone Lebanon where the bloodiest sectarian wars in the Middle East were once fought (and could blow up anytime); there isn’t a single ethnic group in Eritrea which could claim to have a majority status on its own, even if by the slightest …

Destroying HGDEF

At times one wonders if we should say shame on us or shame on HGDEF. As if it is not degrading enough to be spat on, we seem to lack the resolve – and a simple one at that by the way, to even be able to wipe the spit …

PFDJ’s Last Line Of Defence

What is left for the teetering HGDEF regime to cling on to? What keeps it going when for all intents and purposes it was stripped bare of almost all the structures that make up a functioning state – if one could ever call a consortium of shefatu (bandits) “a state” …

Forto 2013 – The Covert Angle

Much has been said about the January 21 event – now better known as the “Forto – 2013” operation, in which the PFDJ regime was shocked to its core, despite its typical and desperate tactics of playing down threats and feigning normalcy. Not only did the event scare the pants …

Time For Some Reflections

“The years roll by” may have become a catch phrase we repeat very often in our nation’s predicament – but literally, the years are indeed rolling by. How fast they come and go is even hardly noticeable these days. Between jobs, schools, holiday events, vacations and family life in general …

What Are Eritrea’s Options – If Any?

An important leader in the horn ofAfricaregion has suddenly died. Now remember, “important” – not necessarily good or bad, but nonetheless, important. Discussing and arguing about his record has already begun in earnest and the irony is, the man is not even buried yet. Zenawi’s record – good or bad …

PFDJ’s Identity

A young Egyptian school boy starts a recess time conversation with one of his schoolmates which run something like this. After staring at his schoolmate who happened to be a fairly dark-skinned African kid, the boy started his conversation by asking; “huwan’tu endku mama w’baba za’yeena?” (Do you have moms …

The National Assembly And The Road Ahead

2011 will be remembered as the year where the roots of success were sowed in our struggle against HGDEF’s tyranny. The National Congress was a success by all standards and despite the ill wishes and the co-ordinated smear campaigns of the bigots and their sympathizers, it was as detractor-proof as …

The National Congress And The End Game

So we convene again and this time, perhaps for the last time at such a level before PFDJ thugs are chased out of town and are hunted dead or alive from every fox hole, every sewer pipe or every other crevice in the land where they might attempt to hide, …

The Mogogo Crowd And Their Chauvinist Project

“N’hna nsu  – nsu n’hna”  they will chant yet again, re-affirming their allegiance not only to their dictator, but also and even more importantly, to what the dictator stands for – the completion of a chauvinist project which started forty odd years ago. And mind you, this is not taking …

A “Bullet Away” Scenario: The Moment Has Arrived

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”  Albert Einstein. First off a simple personal question: you are a Diaspora Eritrean living somewhere in the free world; What would you do if a notorious psychopath …

Eritrea: The Final Push (Part II)

The idea espoused by some, that the PFDJ regime is a colossal and a formidable military force is just too farcical of an idea which only the naïve – the regime’s supporters and those who would like to confine Eritreans to debilitating inaction – the arrogant exclusionists would entertain. In …

Eritrea: The Final Push (Part I)

It is no secret that the PFDJ regime has long been dead and that whatever is left of its gaunt structure is teetering on the edges of a cliff waiting for the mercy of a final push. This may sound a bit ironic, but by the looks of it, even …

Chauvinist Intransigence And The Spectre Of Secession

“If it wasn’t for my bad luck,” said the old blues singer, “I would have said I have no luck at all”. Talk about Eritrea’s bad luck or having no luck – whichever is worse. As if suffering under PFDJ’s tyranny wasn’t bad enough of a curse, the poor people …

A Wake-Up Call For The Exclusionists

If you ask any of the Eritrean opposition groups who built their organizations on the basis of their religious beliefs & convictions about the nature of their struggle, they will tell you that their mission is not about creating a Sharia-ruled state, but rather about upholding the basic human rights …

A Successful National Conference: A Crucial Milestone

Prior to the convening of the national conference, there were many pessimists who thought that there was no chance in hell that it would work. “ezi’om seb srah ay’konun”, they purported, all the while having nothing to show for it themselves, except for arrogance and hollow bravado.    There were …

On The Eve Of The National Conference

What do a Holocaust survivor, one who bore witness to human savagery at its worst and a Neo-Nazi skinhead who could hardly spell the name on his welfare cheque have in common? What could there possibly be to even suggest an inkling of commonality between such two individuals with the …

The Eritrean Covenant: What’s In It For You?

One of the most important documents which graced the pages of this genuine and un-apologetically patriotic website, Awate.com in the last few weeks, is our equivalent of the Magna Carta – the Eritrean Covenant, published by Majlis Ibrahim al-Mukhtar.     First and foremost, our heartfelt gratitude goes to all …

Re-affirming Bigotry: For Some, It Comes So Natural

When people are bad, inherently bad that is, no amount of pleading will ever dissuade them from their evil actions or deeds, no matter how abhorrent and how disgusting those actions or deeds may turn out to be. Such people are not driven by causes – any causes just or …
