Mining for Truth At Nevsun’s Bisha Mines

March 13, 2015 (8:00 am): Gedab News published a news item based on a statement issued by the Eritrean National Salvation Front (ENSF), one of Eritrea’s exiled armed opposition groups. ENSF claimed that on March 11, at 8:00 pm, its armed unit attacked a government garage in Qohawta neighborhood, southeast of the capital city Asmara.

March 13, 2015: Nevsun issues a press release in which it reported “that the processing plant at the Bisha Mine has been temporarily shut down due to a mechanical issue with the ball mill….  During this temporary shutdown, the mine plans to catch up on waste mining and accelerate other preventative maintenance that was scheduled for later in 2015.”

Undated: A few days after March 13, an Eritrean Arabic website carried an undated report by Zagil stating that “A Military Land-cruiser vehicle destroyed near Bisha.” The news stated that unknown parties destroyed the vehicles with an RPG in Gash Barka region of Bisha, and that six military elements were killed and two might have been officers. It also stated that Eritrean opposition elements do not rule out the possibility that the operation was carried out by opposition elements from within the Eritrean army.

March 20, 2015: An Eritrean facebooker from Addis Ababa wrote on his wall: “…I am the first who posted this news. Bisha gold mine and an arms depot were hit.”

March 21, 2015: madote.com, an Eritrean regime friendly website, posts a video published by ESAT, an Ethiopian opposition satellite TV broadcaster, which purportedly shows two Eritrea-based Ethiopian opposition groups, Arbenoch and Gnbot 7, waging a military offensive inside Ethiopia. The video supposedly shows Ethiopian prisoners of war and equipment captured by the armed rebels. The soundtrack to the video is a famous Ethiopian warrior song named “Fano” by artist Kassa Tessema. The video is an excerpt from a longer reportage by ESAT which may be a chronicle of a no-date alleged military actives inside Ethiopia.

March 21, 2015 (7.00 am): Facebook account-holder “S. Hamid” introduced the source of all the news that followed with an introduction in Tigrinya, Seber Zena, meaning Breaking News: “Sudanese sources confirmed that the Ethiopian air force carried out an air attack on the Bisha mining company.”

“S. Hamid” then attached a scanned image of, allegedly, Sudanese newspaper Al Sahafa. The Arabic news with a byline (Al Sahafa) accompanied an image of Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea and Hailemariam Desalegn of Ethiopia. The title of the 73 word news was under a bold title stating, “Ethiopian planes bomb an Eritrean gold mine.”

There is no online version of Al Sahafa which, according to Wikipedia, is owned by Sudanese National intelligence service.  Al Sahafa online was last updated in November 2013.

March 21( 2:00 pm): This Al Sahafa news story was widely spread among Eritrean and Ethiopian Facebook pages and other social media accounts. By Saturday afternoon, Radio Wegahta,  an Ethiopian radio station, was claiming that Bisha mining concern and an arms depot were hit according to “our sources in Akordet.” Salina.com ( a sister of Wegahta radio) stated that it got its news from its sources in Eritrea that “The Bisha Gold Mining in Gash Barka and the May‐Edaga Depot are destroyed” and that, “the attack which started at 4:30 am on Friday, March 20,2015 and the huge fire caused thereof lasted well into the middle of the day. The attack is believed to have been carried out either by missile or sabotage by opponents of the regime.”

In quick succession, Eritrean websites asmarino.com, farajat.net, adoulis.com, assena.com essentially sourced the information provided by Wagahta and Salina.com.

Then came Ethiopia’s Awramba Times, except this time the news had a “high ranking Ethiopian military officer” who confirmed to Awramba Times, on condition of anonymity, that “Ethiopian Air Force jets bombarded two key targets inside Eritrea.”

And then there was Ben of Ethiopia First, perhaps the most naive minesweeper in this drama. Not to be outdone by madote.com and ESAT, he had his “Fano, Fano” soundtrack and he told his listeners that this Ethiopian military operation, which he code-named “Operation MI-35”, was in retaliation for Eritrea’s refusal to return a fighter helicopter which was lost to Eritrea thanks to a “treasonous” Ethiopian pilot months earlier. Ben opened his piece with a dramatic “there was no sleep in Eritrea…”

The news had now become a duel between Ben and ESAT: a drama with the same soundtrack.

By this time, the Ethiopian government, which seemed to have been enjoying the psychological warfare, told a Djibouti newspaper: “no comment.”  Ethiopia-friendly second-tier websites were disseminating the news that the invincible Ethiopian Air Force had its way in Eritrea. The message was not so much that Ethiopia was invincible but that Eritrea was helpless. Cheerleaders pressed on the point that Eritrea is helpless! It can’t retaliate! It is finished! By Tuesday, Ben had modified his “Fano! Fano! to “Yefiyel wetete”…

March 22, 2015:  Nevsun, which has a 60% stake at Bisha, sent out a newswire indicating that on Friday, March 20, there “was an act of vandalism at the Bisha plant late last week; there was no significant impact to operations and no personnel were harmed.”

Assessment

Was this an Ethiopian operation?  To answer that question, we need to look at precedence. If it is Ethiopia and it wants to flex its muscle, as it did in 2012, there would be a press conference with a general holding a stick pointing to a map and bragging about the operation and how his fighter jets or commando units returned unharmed.

Since this involves a foreign asset, Bisha Mining, if Ethiopia is really involved and it doesn’t want to officially indicate it is involved but wants to semi-officially tell all concerned it is involved, it would send it to its semi-official websites.

The Ethiopian news media involved were third-tier. Thus, the message had dual purpose: to the hyper-nationalist Ethiopians and to the gullible and/or content-starved Eritreans who copy/paste anything they receive uncritically.

Beyond that, it is a fight between Ben (who is still trying to make sense of his timeline that Ethiopia’s retaliation occurred on Friday, March 20, at 4:30 am) with madote/ESAT publication of its Arbegnoch (Eritrea-based Ethiopian opposition) video of later that same day.  It is hard to justify a retaliation that occurs before the event. In any event, the madote.com publication of ESAT, and its selective editing of a 20-minute video of an alleged military operation inside Ethiopia (most likely inside Eritrea) from a 90-minute ESAT documentary of Ethiopian armed groups in Eritrea does not tell us when exactly the military operation occurred.

Conclusion:

What happened on March 20, 2015 is likely a continuation of what happened on March 13, 2015, the one advertised by ENSF. We say it is a continuation but the responsible party is unlikely to be ENSF: if it were, it would have announced that it was the responsible party. The most likely explanation is that it was committed by disgruntled Eritrean members of the Eritrean Defense Forces. It is highly unlikely that Ethiopian Air Force was involved (this would be an act of invasion against a foreign asset and Canada would, using evidence gathered from the bombing site, sue Ethiopia.)  Nonetheless, Ethiopia might have encouraged and fed the propaganda that its Air Force was responsible for two purposes: to placate its war lobby inside Ethiopia and to communicate to Eritreans that their government is entirely incapable of self-defense and/or retaliation.

Sadly, many of the Ethiopians involved with the dissemination of this news were intelligence-driven. (Remember the first source, Sudan’s Al Sahafa, has strong Sudanese intelligence connection, to say the least.) As for the Eritreans involved in the dissemination of this farce, it is an assortment of people who have given up on any possibility that Eritreans will ever be capable to bring about change and change can only come carrying an Ethiopian label. We can’t really blame them: Isaias Afwerki has reduced Eritrea to a country that can’t defend itself and, even worse, a country with such a disfigured government that a substantial number of its citizens would accept any force of any kind to initiate and administer the change: the Eritrean government has so isolated the country no country in Africa and likely none from the permanent members of the Security Council would condemn an Ethiopian invasion.

        I agree and I do believe there are more young people in the west who can do nothing but watch what ever happens in Eritrea. You remember BELES in 1995-98 they were popular people around Ambasador Hotel and all Disco houses in Asmara. They can drive Acura and any of the latest that is really nice and good. We should say go for it and make money but the libiya , sinai and israel issues are really very very painful and a human lose to so many Eritrean families. I can not imagie a family will migrate to Tigray by thinking america will take them . Think about it ? The young and the tested one are able to cross the border through Ethiopia , sudan , libiay and the Italy after that god know what ever they do. We should tell the hororr story of the many people in libia , sinai and other places. We should tell the story as it happens. For what ever reason they cross the border at this time they are just too young imagine 10 years old .We should demand the international community that they can not empty Eritrea and it is far better effective to fight here in Eritrea than going all over tigray making conferences over and over non stop for 15 years . Imagine some people are equipped with so much experience of such conferences.
        I hope we come back to Eritrea and demand our rights sooner because if we are late the dust will come down and people will just forget and go with their life.

        • Ted

          Selam, People who are capable of leading and empowering people have been crippled by wrong decision. My hope is those people to swallow their pride and put all their eggs on Eritrean basket. This is only the beginning, it is not that the West change their stand against IA, but the damage(Asylum) out weighed the benefit they get by demonizing IA. I will not be a surprise if they demand Ethiopia withdraw from badme just to shut the wining of IA. All in all, the opposition need to take notice at the shift in policy and make their move accordingly.

            Dear Ted,

            The million dollar question is which opposition group? There are many of them even TPLF is an opposition group it just uses Eritrean faces. Perhaps that could be the main reason why they lack clear purpose and direction. Opposing DIA is not a strategy and it is not ideology either. I think we first need to identify which one is legitimate and represents the people, and then we can debate on their policies and strategies.

      Hi Selam:
      Many Eritreans, among them dawit, an Eritrean citizen who was first Ethiopian before he was Eritrean and before Ethiopian knew they were Ethiopians are fond of saying that how UN and the Europeans betrayed Eritreans. But they will never say, they do not have the integrity to say that if Europe heeds that fallacious Danish report and deport Eritireas to PFDJ land that this will the worst betrayal and I hope it does not come to pass. The same people also do not tire to say that the deportation of Eritreans during the 1998 war was the worst thing Woyane ever did to Eritreans, as cruel and short sighted that this was, the worst Woyane crime against Eriteans was their blessing when Eritreans were murdered in their backyard by PFDJ. And their blessing came to haunt them when they lost thousands of their youth in the war the dictator they help create waged..

        Dear Semere.

        I will not say too much about the weyanes and evil attitudes because i have said before and if necessary i will repeat if some of the weyanes come up with their bogus assumptions.
        But you understand that the Europeans will not take much of immigrants , semere the Europeans under no circumstance are to allow their streets run by a million eritreans. All the main stream parties of Europe are done with the public at large so they are fighting for their survival on their power unless they will lose Election over and over and that will bring the right wing of Europeans who could care less about human rights and also about international agreements. watch out the next election in Europe. take a lesson in France , Denmark and other nations .The Human rights and also AI has zero power over any election in the right wing of Europe that must be freighting to the human traffickers.

    Amde: The Ethiopian Pathological LIAR

    Here he is this IMBECILE lying through his teeth, well, telling his fibs to the foul-mouthed Rahwa T:
    “He was recruited to challenge the supposedly pro-Ethiopian drift of some Eritreans.”

    Asked to proffer any facts or evidence to support his outlandish claims, he has opted to
    hide behind the skirts of his sister in Abessinian fundamentalism a/k/a Rahwa T.

    Yes, one wonders what is wrong with the likes of Amde. I have always believed that those
    who grew up imbibing the myths of Kibra Negest have absolutely ZERO respect for facts and evidence. All is based in myth and fairy tales. I call it the curse of Abessinian fundamentalism.

    But I am here challenging him to provide anything to support his claims.

    Let us see if he has the guts to even defend himself as he has been beating up his chest and arrogating to himself the role of defending other Ethiopians from the likes of ‘Gheteb.This nobody has been trying to pose as if he knows what he is talking about. I am telling him here he is nothing but a through and through LIAR.

    I am challenging him to produce his facts and evidence for the allegation he has made which is noted in the top part of this post.

    As I await this cravenly soul’s “response”, I am more than 100% sure he got nothing to offer as facts
    or evidence. He was forewarned that the ‘Ghetebian fusillade will muckrake him and EXPOSE him to the bare bones.

    Yeah, that was what I told him when he was jumping up and down like a little tyke who has just gotten
    a new toy. But, now that he is caught with his hands in the cookie jar, I guess he will opt and hide behind his sister in Abessinian fundamentalism a/k/a Rahwa T’s skirt.

        Hi Selam,
        I understand what you are saying, but you don’t understand the type of people that I am dealing with. They got to REALLY know who they are dealing with here. He is caught right there and he will hide like his uncles and fathers, the Ethiopian Tor Serawit used to do. They were hiding under the bed and some where even wearing women’s cloth to escape capture by the Eritrean fighters. That is what I expect this LIAR to do and nothing more!
        He claimed I was recruited and I am asking him to provide evidence for that. They think that I am like them a mere MERCENARY who works for someone and to get something.

          You also forget in 1991 the dergi soilideirs(murders , genociders) who were begging for their mercy just to get a cup of water from our people and the humble Eritrean people gave them shelter food, water you name it. But we should not surprised by the people you are dealing. They want to swim at GORGUSOM and drive to mekele full of love but what they tend to forget is that they should take their share of the blame.On that you are right and you have the biggest hammer i ever seen in awate.com

      Selam gheteb
      I see a sign of misplaced aggression in you . It is not what Amde or Rahwa said that made you angry or pretend to look angry. Your frustration is there are less and less eritreans hate ethiopia these days, eritreans openly say derg was better you can also find eritreans who don’t hesitate to go back to ethiopia. You also think the big ethiopia will swallow the small eritrea soon .
      Your mission is to scream as loud as possible to confuse the innocent eritrean. You are telling them to hate ethiopia even more . They are ignoring you. They already know they are better of with ethiopia. That is the trend you are fighting.
      Long live ethiopia and eritrea. Down with haters . Down with ghettos!

        Dear Abi

        Please do not compare dergi with any one. Please, Dergi is a murderer , a genocider you name it . You know for a fact that Eritreans are a loving human beings so there is no hate towards Ethiopians. About the wish to go to Ethiopia yes i (with all the grievances ) even want to come now especially to Gonder and smell all the good things the same can be said about 90 million ethiopians they want to swim in our see and experience beautiful Asmara. Who can debate on the good things Ethiopia has please mention one person who despise Ethiopia , i will tell him to go and dig himself.

    I wish to thank the Awate team and the moderating work they do. God knows how many forums open to the public degenerate into intellectual ghettoes, or foul-language cesspools. You could have decided to close off the commenting and just be a news and opinion site, and saved yourselves a lot of pain.

      The typical Weyane time server opportunist that you are, you here trying to grandstand here. You ain’t fooling no one. You are here to protect and defend FOUL-MOUTHED and low moral characters simply because they happen to be Ethiopians and they are your posse in Abessinian fundamentalism. You say you have a religion? What kind of religion could that be one that stinks with hypocrisy to high heavens. As your wont, isn’t that what you and your ilks are good at. Try to fish in troubled waters and score brownie points as your crass political opportunism dictates. And, you think that is not obvious to someone even with the minutest amount of grey matter between his/her ears. Dream on, as you are not fooling anyone. You are exposed!

          Ayte Amde,
          Don’t try to change the subject and try to find a wiggle room as you are attempting your retreat. I have exposed you to be nothing but a rank hypocrite who uses religion to defend a foul-mouthed low character a/k/a Rahwa T who hails from the accursed Weyane land. You were silent when she was hurling insults and denigrating remarks about me. But, when you think that you have to defend her, you have not wasted a single second to jump in and attack, bad mouth me. Here you also invoked religion like asking someone to pray for this or that. Here is what stinks about you and your types. You have no shame to defend a criminally minded Weyane supporter and if that involves attacking others, you will do it as you have ZERO morality. That is why I firmly believe that you will betray your own mother. A self-seeking Weyane sycophant doesn’t bat an eyelash to gain even a penny. That is who you precisely are and nothing more! That is why you are exposed to be nothing but a rank hypocrite.

          • Amde

            Ato Gheteb,

            She used one word. Hours ago

            Let me count the negative things you said about her just in this one post of yours:
            1. “foul mouthed low character”
            2. “hails from accursed Weyane land”
            3. “criminally minded Weyane supporter”

            Looks to me she is STILL kicking your posterior. And she is not even here.
            She is probably enjoying her sleep and yet here you are going berserk about her.

            Miskin conventional Gheteb, if that does not make you pitiable, what will?

            So where are we on the prayer thing?
            Do you want her to pray for you? Or you don’t want her to pray for you?
            If she is not suitable, perhaps I can try?

She was merely mentioned to show your utter hypocrisy here and nothing else. Now it is your turn and I can feel you are squirming real bad for you have been EXPOSED to be nothing but a HYPOCRITE who will use religion to score some points. Use your religion and prayers for yourself as you will need it much more. I told you that my job is to show that you are nothing but a rank Pharisee. Now, I can feel that blowtorch getting really hot and your fannies must really be hurting.

            Oh my god what are you gonna do when Rahwa shows up tomorrow? They have this thing called object permanence. Apparently babies and dogs don’t have it, so they think if someone is not in their presence this very minute, they don’t exist.

            You don’t even know what a blowtorch means. Poor you! You don’t get it, do you? You have no idea also what a fanny is. Now, I am not only dealing with a hypocrite, but someone who doesn’t even have a simple grasp of simple words. Please, at least pretend to be funny when you really understand what it is that I am talking about. Not only your sister Rahwa, you can bring the whole slew of Abessinian fundamentalists to give you a hand here. Don’t you know that an Eritrean can take on and literally defeat and lay to waste more than 20 Ethiopians. I will simply be repeating history. Got it?
            Pray for yourself as you are going to need it more. You have no way out. Pray and pray to be saved for the unremitting Ghetebian salvos. Hide and squirm and PRAY. You have no other options left for you. You may have fooled others by your faux bonhomie here, but you ain’t fooling me. I can sniff a rank hypocrite of your ilk from many miles away. Pray for some relief. Pray, Amde! More prayer, to save your fannies from the utter annihilation that is awaiting you!

            Yeah, you have nothing else left. I told you before that you will be defeated and will soon be raising your white flag after your fannies were badly blowtorched. You may want to call your sister Rahwa or some of your Abessinian fundamentalist confederates to lend you some help here. Otherwise, let alone a dimwitted dummkopf like you, others in better positions have not survived from being literally ‘interred alive’ from the unremitting ‘Ghetebian fusillade.

            Wo Cousin Gheteb:

            Awalan: I feel like you are using pellet guns and BB guns when some of us (me, Shum for example) are waiting for you to use the real ones, those that show your intellectual heft deployed in the power of persuasion which, after all, is the purpose of this forum. It’s NOT to debate your interlocotors here but to give the significantly more and substantial Awate readership. (Note to self: share stats from March.). Keep that in mind at all times.

            Thanian: What shall I do cousin, you ask, when I feel assaulted and attacked? In your estimation those who have engaged you are your lessers, right? Well, the Quran has a perfect answer for you (it helps me; try it: it might help you. It’s chapter 25 and verse 63:

            See you in the foxhole:)

            PS: you will get to know Amde and you will realize you were both having a bad day. He is a substantial guy, a good company when you want an intellectual feast. Trust me on this. But if u disagree, remember 25:63.

            Selamt Cousin Saleh,
            Thanks for your feedback and advice. However, I have to tell you that the way I see things are much more different than yours. There is nothing that requires intellectual heft or the power of persuasion when I engage the likes of Amde as he was doing nothing less than a hatchet job and purely engaged in ad hominem attacks. I have never engaged this person in any exchanges for I knew from the get-go who this person really was. Call it a hunch or a sixth sense. Well, I was right and I wish he has proven me wrong.
            He couldn’t resist the urge to unleash his assaults using the way of comforting his sister Rahwa. Not only that, he used the opportunity to do his dirty job of avenging other Ethiopians or their sympathizers who had the ‘misfortune’ of exchanging with me.
            No, Sal, I don’t see anything in this person. Neither intellectual heft/ honesty nor any moral fiber. The acid test was for him to call out the foul-mouthed Rahwa for hurling insults or to remain neutral. Amde did none of those. Actually he went on comforting his sister and unleashed his attacks on someone who he has never exchanged with. Sorry, Sal, in my book that is the most despicable characteristics in a person that I abhor fervently. Well, he may have acted differently with you, but I have to call it as I see it. He maybe nice to you guys, but my experience tells me otherwise. No, it wasn’t a bad day for me and I believe Amde didn’t have a bad day. His reactions were premeditated and he has been itching to unload his attacks for some time. You can call it a hunch or reading between the lines.
            I believe that talking to Amde, Rahwa and their types is akin to talking to a crack head. Seriously, there is no other language that they understand than what was deployed against them today. Well, sorry, it may have come across to you as pellet and BB guns, but I assure you that he and by extension his posse of Abessinian fundamentalist will think twice before they start that trek of attacking, insulting or denigrating me. Not for anything else, but they know that I am going to massively retaliate. What is more, they know that from now on, fire will be returned with fire. That they get it. He will not be ignored, but I will respond in kind. That is a surety, Sal.
            Below, find his initial unprovoked response that says it all!
            Thanks again.

            Stay cool you are fine. Just know that person represents the status quo. That is the status quo that has forced a generational emigration out of Eritrean homes into the deserts of the Sahara and the bellies of Mediterranean sharks. That is a status quo that has come to a dead end, and is just waiting for the corpse of Issayas to really come into full fruition. He has nothing else to offer. In that he is more of a pitiable character than someone to take seriously.

            If you have to think about him, I say pray for him that he gets the wisdom to see the light.

            You are mad because I called you an unoriginal defender of a dysfunctional status quo.

Believe whatever you want to believe, but you are not ME and you have absolutely no idea. So, stop trying to telling me what is that I utterly despise about you. I know it for sure, but you are simply guessing. It is laid there for you in the above post. So, don’t sweat it as it is REALLY simple. Just read my response to Sal. That is all. I have nothing else to say to you. Period!

            Selam saay7,
            .
            It is commendable and sensible advice you provided. The such a fine diplomatic way and delicate attempt to corral this student may not bear fruit. The appeal to his spiritual side will not even flower let alone bear fruit. The job of the University administrator is now completed. Frankly, this is the appropriate time to utter the words “I was wrong” about the high hope placed on this student and move on.
            .
            May I suggest the security chief of the University to come forward. He has done it before. I think his name was also SAAY or saay7. Let the security chief directly and truthfully say,… Dude, you suck! shut up and learn.
            In advance, I want to apologize for this post to you. That is all I have to say.

            Hello guys,

            I just entered the Awate Hall and heard the usual screeching noises and cries from a gender-less person*, attacking other formers. “balegiena wanacha kewedafu yisefal” endilu. ‘Gheteb, you said I learnt a lesson yesterday. What was that lesson Mr “TeraEraE”? Was it my admission to the moderators massage? You should know that I have been at Awate for over 4 years now and am familiar with its guidance. I did it with all my knowledge of the consequences that would follow, and I don’t mind whatever measures taken as long as I convey my message to superficial people like of you who looks good looking dressing nice cloths, but their inner is…. My stand towards you will never change. Readers will judge the level of bad-mouthing that we use. In fact you looked a professional badmouthed person* with an excellent writing skill. Otherwise I don’t remember pieces of good idea from the hundreds of comments you posted since you are arrival lately. Please leave Amde and fight with me. I will tell boldly that I am a Tigrian from woyane land. I am proud of my origin. But I am not an ordinary cadre and blind supporter of Woyane. I don’t take everything they said. I am here to learn from big men and women regardless of age. I am surprised you dare to say about character. “SeyTan lamelu mexhaf yiTeQsal”. One thing I appreciate from you: you have excellent English. Unfortunately, you are not using it to pass good idea. Where is the
            behavioral change?

            * Sorry, I don’t know what ‘Gheteb means and if it is for “he or she”

            ** My dear Amde, I am sorry to expose you to this situation (mnu ga dolkuh lijie).

            ***Remember you have not presented your evidence that prove I (we) have
            more than one “heart”.

            Hi Rahwa

            No apologies necessary. You apologized and moved on. He is the one who can’t. That is his problem. He just showed his true colors that is all

            I will defend you any day and it will always be my pleasure.

            You must be a certified nincompoop. If she moved on, why is your sister in Abessinian fundamentalism huffing and puffing ad nauseam in the post above. That doesn’t look like she moved on unless one is a certified ding-dong cretin to think otherwise. The more you write, the more you are revealing that you are indeed very puerile. That reveals the true color of person who is purblind, literally and figuratively. I am responding to you because you have arrogated to yourself the role of defending your foul-mouthed, low character sister . Man, you can’t even defend yourself. Go ahead and defend whomever you choose and I am glad to tell you that makes my day!

            Stay conventional. You are doing great.

            So the great Ghetebian fusillade consists of rifling through your dictionaries and thesauri to see if there is another synonym for “Me Clever. Him Not Clever”? Yes I am shaking indeed – from laughter.

            There you go again with your red herring. You claimed that your sister in Abessinian fundamentalism has moved on. I showed you that she still huffing and puffing. Caught with you hands in the cookie jar, what do you do? Yeah, the proven tactic of peeling off tangent and then creating a red herring. Man, you are not only puerile, you are definitely a nincompoop. Now though I am getting to the conclusion that you are indeed pathetic. You can’t even honestly defend the first illogic in your outlandish claims. You are also going after vocab and diction. Man, you must be really and desperately groping in the dark. Poor you. I think you need help. Fast. I mean really FAST!

          • Rahwa T

            Brother Gheteb,

            In your School of Abessian Fundamentalism, didn’t they tell you how to write in plain English? You have huge terminology that less known by me and I am getting bored because I have to find their dictionary meaning in Google and I am fade up. That means your message is suspending somewhere in the air and no communication, which is not good for you as you have spent your time on them. So please focus on ideas, stop piling words.

            Dear Gheteb

What i can see in you is that you are also one of the best . Your words plus knocking your debaters off their mark is just highest quality. If i feel intimidated by smooth English , i will ask your help.What a gift of course i am not comparing my bad and dirty mouth . I know i am out of the loop of the league.

            Thanks for the lesson but very few will learn from the above post.

            I am just reading his post just as a guest(selam) who can not express her ideas in a silk and smooth english. Just try to understand how deep he goes to tell people. His vocabulary knowledge is quite high. If i could write like him , i could have scored all my subjects A. and also avoid the warring from other people in this forum. Forget about the calculation , my professor will never see my derivative formula to the question because he will be thankful to my English vocabulary. Of course i have told you if any one insulted you i will stand there with my arrow and bow that i already promised you before. Did you see game of thrones.

          • Rahwa T

            Dear Selam,
            That is very nice of you passing in your message in a language that goes to the heart. Yes, I too agree that he write so beautifully. I have told him earlier. Unfortunately as to me they are full hate. I wish his skill was used positively. I can’t stop thinking whether I have more than “2 hearts”. He statements are filled with message of this sort.

He wrote those things and he ain’t going walk away scot-free in a million years hence. Mark my words. You are saying he is nice. No, He is a cotton-picking hypocrite! He tries to grandstand and try to peddle his religion and protect a foul-mouthed Weyane woman here who has been hurling insults. No. He is not nice. He is a rank hypocrite and I will darn make sure he gets the lessons he will never, ever forget.

    Associated Eritrean Press (April Fools news day) –

    General Woldehaimanot (GWH) and his division have raided the presidential office in Asmara and our sources are reporting that there was some gun fires heard in the environs of the building. Our sources have also confirmed that armed soldiers have surrounded all ministry offices. The whereabouts of DIA is not yet known but reports have surfaced negotiations are being undertaken to air lift him to Qatar. Six ministers have fled the country already including the newly appointed MoI, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minster of Energy. The leader of the coup de tat is known to have had long grievances with those close to DIA and DIA himself.

    Fast forward a few days into the future:

    Meanwhile, the Ethiopian government has applauded the operation and has offered the Eritreans any help they desire but promised that it will not interfere unless invited by the Eritreans. The Presidnet of Ethiopia welcomed the change in Eritrea and as a sign of good gesture, he ordered the removal of all Ethiopian troops (meleyo lebashoch) from Eritrean land. The PFDJ regime has long dominated every aspect of Eritrean life and most Eritreans in the diaspora have been taken by complete shock that Eritreans in Asmara have accepted this change and they are dancing in the streets, death do DIA, death to his cronies. In the mean time, General WH has started a transitional government with people from inside and outside the country. He and his new cabinet have nullified the proclamation of national service, land proclamation, the 1997 constitution. They are in the process of selecting a committee to draft the constitution, the majority of whom is believed to come from the University of Awate. Some have claimed that they heard Nitricc’s name but this has not been confirmed yet by Associated Eritrean Press.

    GWH has also ordered the complete and total dismantlement of PFDJ and he said he will hand power after elections are held in 18 months time. The OAU, the UN, EU, USA, have all shown their solidarity to the Eritrean people and have donated 2 billion dollars already for re-construction of the country. Associated Eritrean Press will open an office in Asmara this week and will bring you more great news. God bless Eritrea (oh and all its neighbors).

    What would you rather have? Land or people? Ha? You saw how the Ethiopians reacted when I sarcastically suggested they can use Asseb free of charge for two years. Thanks to PFDJ and IA, nobody wants to have anything to do with us or our land. EPLF freed the people from Ethiopians but EPLF subjugated the people to much harsh living conditions. How many people now say life was better under the derg? Most people in Eritrea. Now you are going to accuse me of suggesting we go back to the derg. That is what you guys do, twist things up to make your points.

          They did not learn when our great great fathers said no to imperialism , starting from Hailesilasie , mengustu and meles. We expect them to learn from their grand grand fathers , yet they do not seem to have it.

          Oh you bet yeah we have given up on IA and PFDJ. Haven’t you? What good can come out now if it did not even surface in 24 years? Tell me why I shouldn’t give up on IA and his regime? What else is there to wait for? You aspiring little future dictators! Eritrea is not for sale. Well, here is a news flash for you, nobody wants to buy it anyway even if we put it up for sale. So give up that talking point and refute my claims. I don’t think you know anybody in Eritrea but if by any chance you do, have someone help you call them and see what they have to say. You guessed it – life is hellish. It was better during the derg era. If you care so much about your land, go get it from weyane, they have a chunk of it and guess what, they are dumping their ‘agame’ turd on there for you to clean up when they eventually decide to leave.

    I am sorry I cross the rules and guidelines of the house. Few days ago I was asked about my heart when I say I love Eritreans by the same person. The reputation of words and statements like “loving Ethiopia more than Eritrean “ for over fifty times in only four hours by the same person who insult me earlier was unbearable to me and provoked me. I hope the same warning will be forwarded to the person as well. I have accepted the warning. And if do that next time, that means I would accept the consequences. I hope I will control my emotion.

      Stay cool you are fine. Just know that person represents the status quo. That is the status quo that has forced a generational emigration out of Eritrean homes into the deserts of the Sahara and the bellies of Mediterranean sharks. That is a status quo that has come to a dead end, and is just waiting for the corpse of Issayas to really come into full fruition. He has nothing else to offer. In that he is more of a pitiable character than someone to take seriously.

      If you have to think about him, I say pray for him that he gets the wisdom to see the light.

          Have you ever seen GAME OF THRONES . The bastards i mean like John Snow these people are quite intelligent characters in the film. what they miss is the recognition of their fathers as their mothers loved them to death and some of their mothers gave their life for their sons to continue living. Please see GAME OF THRONES from season 1 to the next season 5.
          As i am quite tilted to my girlsh DNA.

          • Rahwa t

            send me the link. (I hate writing comments without properly addressing to the recipient. I can’t help but that is what you guys teaching me). Bad lessons (but still there many good lessons in them).

        I usually IGNORE your ignoramus comments. But you are in NO position to characterize anyone here. A bootlicking, bottom feeding time server kissing the behinds of the fascistic Weyane’s like you has no moral authority nor any religious principles to pontificate and grandstand here. As for me, my mission is to muckrake and lay to waste the Abessinian fundamentalists who have disgraced this website. But, you can try to pretend as if you are riding your high horse here, but you know that the utter drubbing that your posse in Abessinian fundamentalism has been taking these days. I sense that you are still fuming and licking your wounds so, so badly. That is what Eritreans hand to those who are still wallowing in the backwaters of the outdated political outlook otherwise known as Abessinian fundamentalism. I can assure you more is coming your way and the only thing that you can do is pray and probably read some chapters of Kibra Negest to cheer you as things in Weyane-land will soon be going belly-up!

        • Amde

          Ah Ato Gheteb,

          Not a fan of me or my poor horse are we? You don’t have to be so mad – I will ask sister Rahwa NOT to pray for you.

          Objectively speaking, you know I am right and that is what touched your nerve.

          Just based on your response, you self-characterise thusly:

          1. You are here to muckrake.
          2. You are here to lay waste.
          3. You are here to drub… utterly I may hastily add.
          4. Your sensory system is a little off – but you are convinced you have people fuming and lick wounds.
          5. You are not a fan of the Kebre Negest.
          6. You are convinced Weyane-land is soon going belly-up.

          Which of the above could not have been said about PFDJ propaganda over the past year? Two Years? Five? Decade? Two decades?

          See how utterly boringly conventional it is, my multi-thesauri’ed friend?

          Sees to me you are a self-admitted all-opportunity basher. Now your novelty is you named for your pleasure a new toy to give you the excuse to manifest your self-admitted bashing nature – Abyssinian Fundamentalists. Having come up with a new toy, you fling it at whoever has drawn your wrath, and then bash with it to your heart’s content.

          On the flip side, if you said something abut the Eritrean status quo different from what one can read on Shabait, then I must have missed it.

          Hence, I see you a defender of the status quo, who uses polemics and ancient history, and nothing else. Objectively that is true. Based on your input here, I would imagine that is a characterization that you should proudly embrace.

          You know what they call people that stand fast for a system that is clearly failing? They don’t call them conservatives. They are called reactionaries.

          Amde

          • ‘Gheteb

            Ayte Made,
            You are a hopeless hypocrite who talks about religion without even knowing the very tenets of religion. Is telling the truth and not lying part of your religion. I am amazed that you and your types have no shame and even have the audacity to talk about religion. But then again, you would even betray your own mother if that is going to curry you favor from those you are trying to appease and protect and the Weyanes may even be happy and earn you some lucre in their patronage system!

          • Amde

            Ato Gheteb,

            See what I mean?

            Neither my poor mother nor my religion have anything to do with this discussion. But you have an insatiable need to bash, so you will pick up whatever thinks will work for you and try and use it.

            Then you go nuts because someone suggests a prayer for you.

            Beyond your utter unoriginality, why wouldn’t someone pity a wounded soul like you?

            Amde

          • ‘Gheteb

            Ayte Made,
            The only person that needs to be pitied is you as you are using religion to protect a foul-mouthed low character from the accursed land otherwise known as Ethiopia. When you thought you were scoring points by invoking religion here and when you are being called out on it, you are here crying like a recently circumcised baby. You need to pity yourself for your hypocrisy is utterly laid bare and exposed. You were trying to grandstand by putting yourself in a high pedestal try to grandstand here. Where were you when that FOUL-MOUTHED low life Weyane wing nut was hurling insults and denigrating others. No in your religion insults against Eritreans is no insult, but defending a foul-mouthed crass person like your Weyane sister a/k/a Rahwa T is a pious act. What a religion that you have, Ayte Made. This is nothing but hypocrisy on stilts. That is what I have exposed here and you can cry your hearts out or go and pray.

          • Amde

            Ato Gheteb,

            You don’t know what religion is do you?

            Amde

          • ‘Gheteb

            Ayte Made,
            But, you know how to use religion to grandstand, lie and score some points . Don’t you? What a Pharisee!

          • Shum

            Selam ‘Gheteb,

            You’re indulging a bit much in the personal back and forth. You’re starting to take things too far. Sure, you’re not the only one at fault. But I believe you’re the main one who has the power to stop it. I much prefer reading your perspective on current events than these types of exchanges. Resist. Awate.com is giving us a good forum for dialogue. Let’s use it effectively.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Selam Shum,
            I don’t think you understand what is going on here. The avalanche of insults and denigrating remarks has been coming my ways for a long time. Sure you can ignore them, but there is a limit. You may not agree with me, but when someone calls me a “BASATARD”, then a red line is crossed. And, when someone tries not only defend those who have hurled insults, but also attack me, yes sure you will say ignore them. I have ignored this IMBECILE for a long time. I guess he has taken those as a weakness and. hey, today, he gets the ‘Gheteb treatment. You can check this forum that I have never exchanged with this IMBECILE at any time. My second rule is to avoid all the Abessinian fundamentalists in this forum. But when they cross the red line, I will rain pure hellfire on them, literally. None of this half-wits are in my league and they were severely ignored by me. You see they have taken that as a weak point and they have been attacking and hurling insults. Don’t you think I have the right to defend myself. That is all I have done so far!
            FYI, for a dialogue to go smoothly, those who have been disrupting todays thread should be called out and not those who were insulted and denigrated. I am here the case in point. Just check todays thread.
            Thank you for your advice and feedback.

          • Rahwa t

            Selam Gheteb,
            You are still reporting to some sensible guys who gives an ear to listen about the word I used. But you are still hiding your evidences that confirmed we have multiple of hearts. Tell me if insulting 7 miliion people is less crime than insulting single individual.

          • Rahwa T

            Dear Amde,

            So Gheteb is a man? Thank you for that. He is on a new mission to inculcate the concept of Habesha Fandamentalism. I think he has got some religious academic and politics background. In my opinion that is why he is bringing the term ” Abessinian Fandamentalism” repeatedly. But so far other than referring people to dig it up in google has not briefed us its meaning. What a bad cadre! I can’t imagine a gospel preacher who tells his audience to refer the bible. Above all his hate to Ethiopians is so vivid and limitless. He has this ambition of seeing Ethiopia
            fragmented into pieces and daydreams marching towards the south commanding a strong army of red flowers to bring the dream come true. To his disappointment, time is moving in a speed of sound and he certain in that let alone he, his great descendant will never see that illusion. This has made him to act awkwardly. This is in addition to other reason which I refraining from listing them here for the time being. Despite the many cousins that he has, his fundamentalist behavior of the concept of “Abessinian Fandamenatlism” has disturbed his personality and
            left him with no room for advice from relatives. What a Poor man! Yes, he may ridicule my religion, but definitely I will pray for him to be free from his disease.

          • Amde

            Rahwa

            He was recruited to challenge the supposedly pro-Ethiopian drift of some Eritreans. He is at a loss as to how to do it, than to regurgitate the tired old arguments of Ethiopia being fake, Tigrayans perfidious, Eritreans always victorious, Amhara the source of evil.

            If there is a pro-ethiopia drift it is because people want to solve real problems. Inventing a category called Abyssinian Fundamentalism and bashing people with it does not solve their problem. He does not offer an alternative.

            He is empty and floundering. He got nothing and he knows it. So he lashes out the only way he knows how. Basically tell everyone how smart he is and how dumb everyone else is, and how they have hurt his huge ego.

            Now, I try to think that he probably has lost family to wars with the Ethiopian state. Perhaps his family got exile. So there is real pain there. Perhaps time will heal it, perhaps not. Some compassion is really called for.

            Amde

          • ‘Gheteb

            Amde,
            How about saving your crocodile tears for someone else? You keep guessing as if this is like deciphering the wax and gold tradition that you grew up in. That is your problem. I don’t know you and I don’t pretend to psychoanalyze you remotely. Stop that as I can see that it is way, way beyond your ken. Stick to what you know as a fact. You don’t know me. You have pretty much ZERO facts. So, why are you involved in this lazy exercise of conjectures and guessing. Say whatever you want, but remember it is only and purely of subjective emanations! Your compassion you can use it for your sorry self as you may have a tortured soul for the sins of your forefathers in STEALING and Ethnically cleansing the poor Oromos and the Southern people of Ethiopia. You see, be compassionate to thyself, Amde first. Your sins and the sins of your forefathers and maybe yours are still haunting you .

          • ‘Gheteb

            Amde,
            Here a few questions that will show you are indeed a LIAR.
            You said that I was recruited. Now, tell me who recruited me to do the stuff you are alleging? Any facts. I challenge you with anything that you will never be able to provide even one iota of evidence?
            Yeah, provide your evidence, Amde and no hiding behind your sister in Abessinian fundamentalism’s skirt.
            Here you are Mr. Defender of Ethiopians in this forum and let us see if you can even have the guts to say anything in your defense. I told you that you will be EXPOSED to your bare bones and shown for who you really are.

          • saay7

            Selamat Amde:

            Since I have already praised you, I feel ok criticizing you now. You are not helping with “he was recruited to challenge the supposedly pro-Ethiopian drift of some Eritreans.” It is an insult to Gheteb and this website. The editors have been transparent in terms of how we envision this forum: a marketplace of ideas where people with diverse opinions exchange views. Consequently, this website has had very dynamic people contribute out of the blue and just as suddenly stop contributing. In short, the website will continue to encourage people to write (the more diverse the viewpoints the better) but people who write are doing it of their own initiative, not because they were “recruited”,and people who stop writing are also doing it on their own initiative, not because they are blocked.

          Hi Gheteb,

          have you heard the Tigrigna (amharic as well) saying … “eneho meda eneho feres”?

  • Mizaan

    “..Eritrea is a free, independent and sovereign LAND (emphasis mine)…” Courtesy of Gheteb.

    I searched through more than a week’s worth of his comments and he mentions the Eritrean people three times only and that not under the context of the suffering of the Eritrean people.

    Compare and contrast with Horizon who said:

    “Eritrea needs Eritreans who can see beyond the horizon, and not those who say they love Eritrea without
    even knowing which Eritrea they are talking about, the land, the people or the regime.”

    …and I say ‘people without land is better than land without people.’ So the first task is to ensure our people are not eradicated from the face of the earth.

    Dear all, forget about Bisha and all stories, sometime the impossible happens. here is good news for you.

    • ‘Gheteb

      Yeah, we know it is APRIL FOOLS DAY. But the point is that this truly reveals what REALLY makes their heart(s) beat faster. I mean those Eritreans who love Ethiopia more than they love Eritrea. I know that the CURSE of Abessinian fundamentalism or what others call ” Habesha-ism” is that they love to show Ethiopia in a better light while making Eritrea’s issues and problems look much bigger and worse. Deep down these Eritrean ‘Abessinian fundamentalists hate the fact that they were born Eritreans, but wish they are actually Ethiopians. Well, I am telling them that there is an easy solution which is to get an Ethiopian citizenship and live their dreams of ‘loving Ethiopia more and more and stop the overwhelming majority of Eritreans ( > 99%) to be who they REALLY are: Eritreans and nothing more.

      • Kokhob Selam

        I love to read your posts as it shows me your entire mind. you are not really PFDJ as their mind is dark to someone who want to see it.

        so you know the day, but you know the news will not be really news when peace visit as all. Eritrean planes will fly to Addis and Ethiopian planes fly to Asmara too.
        relax !

        • ‘Gheteb

          The day is there yet and you are just daydreaming. You want your LOVING of Ethiopia more to come faster. You can’t wait, but I got bad news for you. It is not going to come too soon. First your Weyane has to go. I mean they have to thrown to the dust bin of history.

          • Kokhob Selam

            Wey Fekhera ! entay gedese ubbb.

          • ‘Gheteb

            It is no Fekhera. it is REALITY from another person. I mean from an Eritrean who loves Eritrea more than Ethiopia. You got to hear from those of us who don’t love Ethiopia more than Eritrea. That is all and it is not Fekhrea! Just REALITY.

          • Kokhob Selam

            to whom are you telling so? to me? If really love your country will you be under PFDJ? Lol. you talk like those hero Eritreans. do you think those heroes will allow PFDJ to govern them in first place.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Why are you jumping from one subject to another? Can’t you stick to the issue you are raising. Or are you going all over the place? I guess you are badly cornered and you don’t know how to get out of it.

          • Kokhob Selam

            Gheteb, my friend why you are boiling to much? I brought only to let you lough for the day. And why you don’t want the plain to land?

          • ‘Gheteb

            Which plane? The Weyane plane? Weren’t they bombing Bisha last week??? I thought you liked them last week and now you want them to land in Asmara? Who do you think I am? Please, you need to get a grip on reality? Hey, if you want to fly Ethiopian air line, you can fly to Addis Ababa, if you haven’t done so already.

          • Kokhob Selam

            the problem is you are ready to blame, and hate. I never liked it and I never say so. go back and read it. I may have asked even if it true or not. and what will we do if it is true, and why we wait to see till the bombing day come…etc. My friend you are heating yourself by thinking negative. I don’t want you to damage your hurt. see all those PFDJ leaders, they have every illness, may be they deserve it. but you? why don’t you stop all and take care of yourself? this is the result when you sing PFDJ songs. I told you!!

          • ‘Gheteb

            Oh please, save your concern for others and DON’T worry about me. I know what I am saying to you. Your heart maybe aching and hurting badly as your dreams and daydreams of seeing your loving of Ethiopia more than Eritrea is not going to happen soon. You may need to take care of yourself and the best medicine I can subscribe to you is to take a flight in an Ethiopian Air Line to the land of your dreams, to the heart of Habesha, now called Weyane-land or Ethiopia.

          • Kokhob Selam

            please! allow me to love you and take care of you.

          • ‘Gheteb

            We are talking about Ethiopia and Eritrea here and not about you or me. Can you please stick to those issue and forget about me. I am not the issue here. Your loving of Ethiopia more than Eritrea IS.

          • Kokhob Selam

            so why worry Gheteb, you love Eritrea more than Ethiopians but I love Ethiopians not less than Eritreans. your freedom my friend.

          • ‘Gheteb

            No, you love Ethiopians more than you love Eritreans. There is a big difference.

          • Kokhob Selam

            love is one degree my friend there is no such thing as ratio unless it is temporary love or love for some thing to gain. when you reach a full human being you will know the difference. don’t be angry, most of us still love for the taste or the voice, color and etc. when you grow up, you will love equal. wait for that day.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Oh, please tell those things to someone who doesn’t know your types. I mean those who say that they are Eritreans, but miss the fact that they want to be Ethiopians more than they are Eritreans. That is where you find yourself and my friend that is where all your Halewlew is coming from. In reality, one can either be Eritrean or Ethiopian. You can’t be both. I am telling you that since you love Ethiopia more than Eritrea, do the logical and common sense thing. Announce that you are Ethiopian and that will solve all your heart aches and stop you from parading in this forum all the nonsense stuff you write about. Simple. Do that and you will be Okay.

          • Kokhob Selam

          • sara

            ato kokhob, i like you when you are doing the jebena thing regardless of your other stands. why don’t you stick where you are good at, and stop the “jokes” with eritrean sentiments.i am saying this assuming you still love eritrea not ethiopbia.

          • Kokhob Selam

            Dear Sara
            “and stop the “jokes” with eritrean sentiments” ok here I stop. but don’t assume I only love Eritrea because just I fought for national freedom please assume also I love Ethiopia and the entire world.

          • sara

            no sane eritrean will say he loves AL ADU ALWOOODUD, except few here and there , imagine a palestinian will say he loves the jewish state.for many of us the ethiopian government by extension the state is an enemy of the eritrean people. how could you forget haileslassie, mengistu, and recently zenawi .i am appalled how eritreans are forgetful…

          • Kokhob Selam

            No sister that is not the case, (you are pulling me to serious topic). you see there is a wonderful world to be reached. I want you to be part, there is nothing wrong to love everything, everything in this world can be used for good. every event can be advantageous. it is how you use it. Think about it there is external enemy that can won over you, the first day I hate to hate was when I found out those principles. just ask questions like this

            who allowed HS control Eritrea? to answer this question don’t assume everything you heard is true but keep aside and study it. it wasn’t Americans, British or even Ethiopians and the king. you will surprise to learn it was we Eritreans who open the way. you may say we were not aware and awaken, but nature don’t know all this it just gives you what you want. again why even we were under Italians and others in first place? you may disagree with me but there was a gate for them. you can’t be sick unless you expose yourself for germs. so, our enemies like Mengstu were not more enemies than we were to ourselves. you don’t have to be professor to know this truth, just open your mind and see it.

            at last past is for lessons and we need to create love. we need to live in now there is such thing us yesterday, yesterday at it’s very moment was now.we have just to start to think and work vertical to get in now, now, now and now ladder.

            Oh, Sara Habtey You pull me to big subject it was my joking moment.

          • sara

            just for the sake of argument ,,, if i accept that we had a role to bring haileslassie etc, i,e. we invited him to come into our house, then what.. if you invite a stranger into your house what do you expect him to do or behave.. isnt a guest expected to respect his hosts… again , the april fool thing is remembered here.. he also played aprils fool and he coaxed our people with his lies and promises to be a good neighbor and share all the neighborliness virtues, but we ended up being victimized.. infact this is how i tell my nice who is always curious to know why our parents left eritrea in the 70th.

          • Kokhob Selam

            No !be honest, we were not fool only in April the fool, we were always fool. when you are fool your enemy is the 2nd one you should first fight your own foolishness. Lol. if you keep telling others are fooling you for 1000 years you will not find the solution. why do you think some people love to fight and kill others, it is because they fail to find there own self.

          • sara

            that i agree with you we been fooled many times , but eritreans are now saying… NO MORE FOOLING! enough! remeber.. throughout our past and present history we and our parents have seen repeated betrayals by our neighbors .. and we should say enough! no more fooling.. no more betrayal!

          • Rahwa T

            Dear Kokheb Selam,

            I never read from your comments which say that you loved Hailesilassie, Mengistu or Meles (nor their respective governments). You just said you love Ethiopia as you love Eritrea which implies your love is to the people. At least that what a normal person would take from your comment. I can understand why these guys are nagging you. For them an Eritrean should hate Ethiopians to be real Eritrean. They better suggest to the “New Constitution Commission” to include this it as a rule in the section on “Nationality Issue”. My advice to you is why don’t you tell them that you have accepted their lame argument (just for today)? After all today is April First.

            Regards

          • Kokhob Selam

            Dear Rahwa T,

            let me start with constitution, do you know that it is dead? Eritrea will have constitution after removal of PFDJ. and that will include of course installing love and deleting hate no 1 of 1 number a as the first base. really it might be in different words but it will be there.

            regarding those guys, shishshhshh don’t tell them but the secrete is most of those kind are the once who have psychological problem -they are in self defense to make sure of their Eritreanism. what they don’t know is there is Eritrea or Ethiopia without Habesha. we are Habesha and we should love both countries. Lol, how can you become Ethiopian or Eritrean if you are not HABESHA. ask them to go to Milano and see what the people call them. “Asmarino!” or Jeddah Ya Habeshi” you can’t be Arab or Italian you are Habesha, and I am sure you are proud. those guys are really in trouble.

          • Rahwa T

            Dear Kokheb S.

            I know many things about Eritrea (but obviously the highlands). Few weeks ago when I say I love Eritreans, this man/women called “Geteb” “asked” me which “heart“ I was using when I say I love Eritreans. He wants me to develop a bad feeling towards the people that looks like me, speak my tongue, share my culture etc. by ridiculing me, insulting me on the number of hearts I have and repeating newly coined phrases Abyssiian Fundamentalism.
            I have heard that Palace at Massawa is being guarded by deqi Setanta Oton Xexeraten. I suspect some of the good writers here are one of them. In fact they are also very good academically, that is why we recently see great English composers but with poisonous ideas here at Awate.

            Regarding the constitution, yes, I have heard IA speaking about the new constitution and I was reminding those guys if they could include HATE as requirement to be Eritreans. Of course the new constitutions will take them another 15 yrs. God knows if their leader would breath with his “brikee” till then.

          • Kokhob Selam

            you should not be disappointed. actually the black dirty dot in white rag can bee seen easily. and it is easy to become irritated and allergic. when you face such type of people, remember we Eritreans are really nice people and those type of people don’t represent us. Eritreans are the same as Ethiopians and almost we have one culture. the Ethics you see in country side of Welo, begemder,gojam, tigray all over Ethiopians village is also there in our villages call it high land or lowland. trust me, I have gone through long and I am sure. The only different was there in capital cities a kind of industrial development and a bit more industrious people but due to long war that is also gone and now due to PFDJ it is totally dead. What People don’t understand me is I am after our future, peace and democracy of those two nations. those two nations should keep their original culture as this global edge is criminal and killer when comes to originality. it is not difficult to develop in all sectors, that will happen as the world is progressing and unlike before man is no more thinking only for his country to develop as human as general has come to understand the development of others is use full for all. the only difficult thing will be keeping your original culture. so the cooperative job on keeping alive culture is very important.

      Still you are playing this game , you have played Bisha one week now again another lies , I misjudged how far the webistes will go on to stay alive by producing lies over lies.

      • Kokhob Selam

        stay calm Selam, what is wrong if that happens. be happy sometime, life is short to cry always. I love to lough even when I cry.

        • selam

          but why ? by just claiming false news ? we have enough lies . Why does lies make you happy ?
          Eritrean issues are not for april fool , some one is dying and you have the time to entertain by news that make no sense.

          • Kokhob Selam

            That is Kokhobay, unfortunately. why don’t you be like me. give time for everything.

          • selam

            That will put your eritreanism to question i guess. You must be some one who approve our neighbors wish ,who wish us a continues harm at any time by any means. Lies is one of them.

            Feel free to play your drum and hit it hard if that makes you happy.

          • Kokhob Selam

            so you are not willing to lough. ok cry, if you enjoy it.

      • Ted

        Selam, KS posted until his fingers fly off when the news Bisha mine was bombed. He couldn’t manage to hide his excitement in contrast to what he claim to be. I pity him that he has no ground to defend or advocate, at least openly. If some told him he is good at semantic, we are paying for it.

    • ‘Gheteb

      I guess you will tell us now who the REAL fools are? Eritreans or those Eritreans who love Ethiopia more than they love Eritrea. Or, those Eritreans who tell us that the TPLF fighters who died in the Eritrean civil war that was conducted against the ELF were innocent victims as if those ELF or EPLF fighters who died were not innocent. Yeah, loving Ethiopia than Eritrea by you and your likes reveals so much more about those who want to sell here their Habsha-ism or Abessinian fundamentalism.

      • Kokhob Selam

        now we will have to create new word in world dictionary “Abessinian fundamentalism” I love it.

        • ‘Gheteb

          You didn’t know it existed before. Poor you! So, you thought you are subscribing to a new philosophy. I hate to disappoint you, but Abessinian fundamentalism is an old philosophy so outdated and anachronistic that it is incompatible with the modern way of thinking. Well, it is based on the book of all hoaxes — the Kibra Negest and all the myths of the country you love, Ethiopia!

          • Kokhob Selam

            Oh, my God!! I didn’t know that. what I know is extreme nationalism makes some crazy like Hitler and some prefer to say “we are the best chosen people” Okay,

          • ‘Gheteb

            Eritrean nationalism is not extreme nationalism but to those who go around and talk about Habesha-ism or Abessinian fundamentalism ( I hope you googled the term and finally got to know what your political outlook is called) wrongly say that Eritrean nationalism is like Hitler’s nationalism. No. Eritrean nationalism is hated by those Abessinian fundamentalists because Eritrean nationalism destroyed one basic tenets of it. That is why deep down the Habeshawian hate Eritreanism.

          • Kokhob Selam

            This is the best time I have in awate. reading your emotion. wow, that means I could have let more people like you cry!!

          • ‘Gheteb

            No, I am not crying. Actually, I am happy for letting the cat out of the bag. I like to expose those ‘Eritreans’ who love Ethiopia more than Eritrea. How could I be crying? You really made my day. I couldn’t be happier!

          • Kokhob Selam

            then appreciate me.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Why would I appreciate a self hating Eritrean who loves Ethiopia more than Eritrea. Are you nuts or what? I don’t appreciate you or your likes. Frankly, I despise you!

          • Kokhob Selam

            no don’t do that, after all I am human so we have common ground some how in that level.

            now show me why you want to me to love Ethiopians more than Eritreans? I don’t know why?

          • ‘Gheteb

            Why would I show you that you love Ethiopians more than Eritreans. In case you forgot, you already do. You loved Ethiopians more than Eritreans and you still do. I don’t have to show you that as you live it daily.

          • Kokhob Selam

            I could have said -I love Ethiopians more than Eritreans like you – the good news for you is love can’t be more to someone and less to someone else unless it is the ego type love for something you enjoy. with your all negative nature I still love you, can you imagine!

          • destaa

            Selam Gheteb,
            What is your view on Nigist Saba? Is she also hoax?

          • ‘Gheteb

            Yeah, the myth of Nigist Saba is not only a hoax. It is the mother of all HOAXES.

          • destaa

            Selam Gheteb,
            Thank u for the response. Does Saba has a meaning in Tigrinya? I am asking this because Saba has a lot in Ethiopia and Eritrean history. Sheba miles of Ethiopian Air lines and First lady Saba of Eritrea are named after her. They are victims I guess

            Merhaba destaa and kokheb……Isnt Saba/ Sheba the name of the kingdom or location. And the queen of Saba/ Sheba’s name Belquis/ Makeda. Thus: Mengist ze Saba led by Nigist Makeda. Will stand corrected

            I only know the song “saba sabino” and I had a girl friend named saba, God! some time I think God works hard for few lucky once. her structure, her nose shape, lips oh my God, the way she talk,walk,,,

            I once ask her if she is the one that we read in history book, she said no, I told her if you are the one I will definitely change my self to Selemon. Lol if every one who has a wife named Saba is a king and wise …..

            Yes that is my understanding as well.

    • Dear K.S.
      This could have been great news, had it not been April first. If there is the will on both sides, they could begin with cultural and religious exchange programs, starting first with diaspora Ethiopians and Eritreans, and later at border towns in both countries. I for one would have been proud to listen to your poems of reconciliation and cooperation, as you recite them to an audience of Ethiopians and Eritreans.

      • Kokhob Selam

        Dear Horizon,
        true, but look people like Gheteb crying, Lol. I dream to see this day. I am reading how much the mind of some is corrupted, My God. it is good I am not around them. Lol.

        • ‘Gheteb

          I am happy, actually. Why should I be crying? You have EXPOSED what is it that is in your heart. It is good you are not around us. Isn’t that why you LOVE Ethiopia more than Eritrea? You see I am very happy for what you have done. You have shown who you really are!

          • Kokhob Selam

            really, MESKINAY HAWAYE.

          • ‘Gheteb

            I am not MESKINAY for I know what I am talking about? Nor I am your brother (HAWEY). Okay, get that straight. No emotional nonsense here. I told you that I love Eritrea more than Ethiopia. You love Ethiopia more than Eritrea while saying that you are Eritrean? Now tell me who is MESKINAY here? Be honest here.

          • Kokhob Selam

            I am Meskinay, because I am your brother. “asha d’han alo haw asha kefi’ewo lo” and still laughing while crying.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Now you are Lebam and you are making me Asha? Why is that? Because I don’t love Ethiopia more than Eritrea like you?

          • Kokhob Selam

            now tell me how do we know you love Eritrea more than me? just by saying all those words? we should have a test equipment. Let’s create one if PFDJ allow us. Lol, I think that could have disastrous.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Now you are saying that you also love Eritrea. But, you love Ethiopia more than Eritrea. Let us put some figures here. For Example,
            You love Ethiopia 99%
            You love Eritrea 1%
            Then, logically you LOVE Ethiopia MORE than you love Eritrea.
            Q.E.D

          • Kokhob Selam

            what if like this I love Ethiopia 100% and I love Eritrea 100% the result of hate is zero. do it and enjoy like me.

          • ‘Gheteb

            No. You can’t do that. You know you love Ethiopia more than you love Eritrea.
            Therefore, you can’t love Eritrea 100% while loving Eritrea 100%.
            You see, 100% = 100%
            So, your love for Ethiopia must be more or GREATER than your love for Eritrea! That is the only logical way to think about it.

          • Kokhob Selam

            love is a reaction without formula. it takes you high high from hate. free for ever body and free from every body. and you don’t have to be greedy as you have always more and extra. the more you love the more you get. love!

          • ‘Gheteb

            You still love Ethiopia more than Eritrea. There you have it. No way out of that!

          • Kokhob Selam

            if you feel that way go on. poor you what can you do? I will remain Eritrean Habesha free to love Ethiopians.

          • ‘Gheteb

            No, you have said you love Ethiopia more than Eritrea. No way out of that. Sorry, I will remind you this one way or another. That is guaranteed!

          • Kokhob Selam

            don’t wait some one to tell you “ዓሻ ሓደ ደርፉ” I want you to accept what I am saying about myself. you don’t have to force me. do you believe I LOVE you also!

        But, it is April’s fools day. Only the Abessinian fundamentalist fools wallow in fairy tales and myths. You can whine and pine about ‘Emama Ethiopia’ and all the myths of Kibra Negest not knowing that these myths are not accepted by 99.999999..% of Eritreans. My advice to you is that you need to broaden your “horizon”.

        • Kokhob Selam

          በለው !! ተናግረሽ ነው ?

          • ‘Gheteb

            Now he is speaking with the second tongue of Abessinian fundamentalism!

          • sara

            why wonder , he eats a lot of that row meet, they say it is a very effective way to change someones hart and mind.thanks god i never been there or wished to, do you know raw meat is a very valuable agri product in ethiobia , its exported and many of those who share its consumption in diaspora, are our folks. Imagine if it does this in diaspora what it will do if you happen to be a frequent flier to addis, with a free ticket on ethio airlines, it starts just on the air…the change of hart..

          • Kokhob Selam

            Sara you fail, I don’t eat meat. Yet those who eat animal meat are better than who eat there own people. Sara, take care I am not saying you eat.

          • sara

            really, then what would you eat ? kotef.. sega, is this meat thing ? if not there must be a reason you dont.as for the people eaters, honestly i know only from stories i heard in the past that, they are found in western ethiobia and some of them even are mentined in histry books of ethiobian wars.
            so you are right eritreans don’t , but some of our neighbors do… be careful.

          • Kokhob Selam

            the man who eats the creature like him is in low level of brain, nearly mad, but what is very bad is the man who eats his fellow men playing politics, don’t you think so? I don’t think those who lost their life in Sinai deserts are not eaten by PFDJ leaders. that type of eating is worst.

          • sara

            i told you already about the known man eaters recorded in history books, if you don’t have access to those references we could guide you where to find them once you leave the place where you are encroached all this time eating Raw meat.

          • Kokhob Selam

            No Sara Habtey, I am not interested much about those books when I am watching today men creating mess in the name of nationalism and religion all over the world and kill each other. talk about it.

          • sara

            now, don’t mix up things we are talking about those who love eritrea not religion or nationalism per se. btw, eritrean nationalism is a just cause to stand and fight for unlike those professed by few chauvinistic, fashitic,fundamentalist -nationalism found across the border.

          • Kokhob Selam

            it is blue moon,

          • Kokhob Selam

            even I wish I learn Spanish if I could, leave alone my lovely Abyssinian language. do you try it, no other language is nice to hear when you say “I love you”.try it.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Yeah, right. You went to the other tongue of your Abessinian fundamentalism because it is the language of choice when you want to make your war cries. Zeraf.. Zeraf… and all your Fiyel Wetetes. Don’t you see how you started by saying “Belew!! Belew! Belew!…. Now, go ahead and make your Abessinian war cries and war dances in the language you love.

        • Many have come and gone before you, people who tried
          to tell us that they are burning with love for Eritrea like a candle, the country that they usually equated with the Eritrean regime. At the end, usually they burn out, leave the stage and are forgotten.

          There was one fellow who was obsessed with “ Ethiopia,
          beggar nation”, and he would say so in almost every comment he posted. Even Eritreans ignored him, and he has now disappeared. We have a new obsession, “ Abyssinian fundamentalism”, and the spices that go with it. Calm down, you are not going to bring an iota of difference by attacking everybody you think have a
          different opinion from you. You could as well discuss with them. Eritrea needs Eritreans who can see beyond the horizon, and not those who say they love Eritrea without
          even knowing which Eritrea they are talking about, the land, the people or the regime. Do not be too sure, nobody can ever represent more than himself, let
          alone 100% of the Eritrean people.

          • ‘Gheteb

            Let me jog your memory here “Mr. who needs to broaden his Horizon so, so BADLY”. Last time, you claimed that the term Abessinian fundamentalism was a new coinage by me. When I told you to google and come back and render your apology, you didn’t do that and that tells me a lot about you. A typical Abessinian fundamentalist who has not given up on Eritrea after so many decades. Like your enant Tut Wetet ( like your mother’s breast milk) give it up and give up the notion of Eritrea joing back to your Emama Ethiopia. It will never happen even in your wildest dreams. We DEFEATED you and kicked your behind out of Eritrea. Accept that bitter truth and worry about your Ethiopia. That is the best thing you can do. What you and your likes are dreaming of doing is akin to an adult man or woman trying to go back and wanting to be breast fed again. Don’t you guys have any shame! I know ones mothers breast milk is good, but your desire to go back and breastfed like little babies is pathologically sickening. Then again, why should I be surprised by those who subscribe to the antediluvian worldview of Abessinian fundamenatlsim.
            I wasn’t attacking you. I was merely telling you who and what you precisely represent. I guess it hurt you that much when someone like me wakes you up from your “pleasant dreams”. I mean the pipedreams of re-annexing Eritrea. I am telling you to wake up and smell the Eritrean coffee with its unmistakable aroma that is telling all the Abessinian fundamentalists and their Eritrean hands that it WILL NEVER happen again. Ever, again. I hope that has broadened your narrow Horizon!

          • Let me ignore all the rest and respond to your allegation, “We DEFEATED you and kicked your behind out of Eritrea.”.
            May I ask you why you could not do it again in the
            1998-2000 war, when you had all the means (tanks, multiple rocket launchers, fighter aircrafts and hundreds of thousands of soldiers), and you were forced to leave Ethiopia occupy 30% of your land, and you have yet to recuperate from the disastrous effects of the war, 15 years after the war ended? It serves your purpose to
            forget that the hated Dergue was fighting on all fronts EPLF, Somalia, TPLF, EPRP, EDU, OLF, ONLF and the Ethiopian people as a whole, who were against the dictatorial regime and they were refusing to fight for the bloodthirsty Dergue, each in his own special way. You defeated the Dergue and not Ethiopia, and your gravest
            mistake was in not understanding this difference, which is responsible for your miscalculation of 1998. Try to live in the real world.

          • ‘Gheteb

            And, what did you accomplish in 1998-2000. Didn’t the mere 5 million Eritreans foiled the invasion of more than 80 million Ethiopian supported by their Western patrons. Yes, in reality Eritrea frustrated, foiled the Weyane-led Ethiopia agenda of regime change and re-annexation of Eritrea to Ethiopia. Now, tell me by what standard you are going to say that your Emama Ethiopia defeated Eritrea? If you need any reminder, Eritrea foiled and defeated Ethiopia in the war of 1998-2000. That is militarily, politically and legally. You may need to make a phone call and hope someone in your Emama Ethiopia tells you that you are back to square one as Eritrea is a free, independent and sovereign land. That is free and SEPARATE from the accursed land otherwise know to others the beggar nation and the second poorest country in the world. That is reality and I hope it broadened your narrow Abessinian fundamentalist horizon.

          • Nitricc

            Gheteb; it is the mentality. In a normal world if some one aimed at getting P-HD but settled for high school diploma and that that would be classified as utter failure. But if you are Ethiopian and TPLF servant; that is a victory to be glorified at all times.
            That is how you can describe the 1998-2000 war. TPLF came to change the government; to occupy Assab; to eradicate Shaebia and to break Eritreans spinal cord. Well, none of it happened. They captured Badime at 150K causality and worst the curt told them it is not theirs and they have to return it. so, in anyway you slice it TPLF lost but people like Horizon will never get it.

          • Rahwa T

            Dear Horizon,

            That is how bastards act – “More catholic than the Pope”. I have read many comments in this forum. But those from this guy are the worst. Believe me, if the Eritreans take blood sample from him/her/it, and analyze (its) roots, the likelihood of the DNA to be from parents who “recently” crossed border form any of the four corners. They have to make the biggest noises to prove that they are “deQebat”. Is that why they call “compensation” in developmental psychology?

            The best weapon to deal with these BASTARDS is ignoring them.

          • sara

            i cant believe it , you have the audacity to say that to eritreans…. ya jemaa where are we?
            just because some i=one said eritrea defeated ethiopia…

            Then you will send me a scientific work that proves we Tigrians have more than one heart, unlike any other human beings. Did you forgot that you “asked” (insulted) me /as one of the Tigrians / to tell you on which “ heart “ I was “saying”, when I said I love Eritreans. Now you are calling a Police when I insult you are a bustard. I will see a person who insults an individual has serious crime than a person insulting 7 million people.

          • Kokhob Selam

            forgive him some people don’t know the one heart that each of us own is capable of having enough space to love the world. the own small heart that can suffer in searching self.

            I really can not believe some one from Ethiopia to question my Identity ? How low do i need to go to question your Ethiopianism ? No one on Earth will do that . It will make me stupid for me to ask your identity . You people have used any word with smooth English to insult people but i did it in open Eritrean way because we Eritreans used to grow by telling people on open space with clear words . The service you are making to your country by questioning Eritreans identity or some times open words of the Quantum.

            And who are you calling BASTARDS here? I want a precise and exact answer.

          • Rahwa T

            I am sure your heart has jumped up and down when your read the above comment as it describe you exactly. You were specifically in my mind when I say “the BASTARDs”.

          • Ted

            Rahwa T, you should have known we are destined to be arrogant ” Bastards” for life considering how much you went through to teach us a lesson. If it helps we also have progressive people like KS who thinks” love” conquers all no matter where it is coming from. .

            If Eritreans did not defeat Ethiopia, How is Eritrea became an independent nation? Why did Ethiopia failed to reverse the Eritrean independence in 1998-2000 war with 20 times more solders, and diplomatic help of AU, UN and multibillion dollars worth of ammunition, from Russia, Ukraine, US, North Korea etc? still losing over 120,000 innocent Ethiopians who were forced to walk over mine fields? For all that loss Ethiopia occupies a piece of Eritrean dry land illegally and no Asab port. That is indeed pathetic and still defeated in international court to claim Badme legally. Ethiopia mortgaged it land and people just to say “we defeated Eritreans at Badme”. Do you think that will restore Ethiopia’s defeat in the 30 years of armed struggle in 1991? Only on Dedebit graduate calculus knowledge, where loss is interpreted as gain, who does not understand the meaning of + and – in simple arithmetic.

          • Ted

            Herizon, the reverse is true. The last 15 yrs has showed us the work of the “concerned Eritreans for change’ group for what they stand for and who they represent. They claimed to represent 100 % Eritreans in making deals at a back door without our consent. Where is the huffing and puffing now, they dominated the political field thinking the almighty Ethiopia can cripple Eritrea in a matter of months. It yesterdays memory when Eritreans engrossed in bewilderment when “they” encourage aggression against Eritrea, encouraged religious conflict within, advocate for sanction, tarnish the the sacrifice the people for independence….the list goes on. No more. Now, Eritreans are ready to be master of their destiny fighting injustice in their own terms.

    Hey Nitricc:

    On Sem: Everybody has an agenda, including you. I am telling you his agenda is the same as yours: he wants what is best for Eritrea and Eritreans. His approach is very different from yours. I believe your approach is: let’s wait for Isaias Afwerki to die and I have faith that Isaias Afwerki will put in motion a transition plan to Eritrea after Isaias Afwerki. You have presented no evidence for this other than “he knows he doesn’t have much time left.” The history of dictators is that they have either ZERO succession plan or, when they do, they name an heir apparent which is always a family member (Iraq, Syria, Libya, Cuba, North Korea…)

    On Ben: when I say somebody is a good guy, I mean he has the best of intentions from the standpoint of what he values. In his case, whatever he did, whatever he is doing, I believe he is thinking he is advancing Ethiopia’s cause. I wish we would use the word “lie” in this forum. Lie is to tell falsehood knowingly; I believe Ben actually believed what he was told and the theatrics of how he delivered what he believed is just media pizazz.

    Khaled Abdu: Well, if you are going to take the position that nobody should express himself (big mouth) unless he went to Sawa, then you should know that I can think of at least two very senior individuals in PFDJ who have never been to Sawa. In fact, one of them is The Mouth of the government (the MoI.) I don’t think that is relevant at all. In fact, this “if you didn’t go to Sawa when it mattered, you shouldn’t speak” is part of what has deformed Eritrea which writes off most of its citizens. Should Khaled come to you and say, “hey, my father gave his life for Eritrea; your father didn’t; I am entitled to speak?” You don’t want to go that road…it is a bad one.

    Welcome back!

      SAAY; uncharacteristically you are way out and totally missed my point. You could have asked me why I said that and how I knew about but you chosen to assume; not good. Let me try latter if I can knock some sense to this.
      In the mean time I have never understood for a person who is ailing with headache to cut the head off is as different approach or alternative to remedy. I don’t get it. Anyway; let me get back to you.

    • SA

      Saay,
      One also has to ask Nitricc if he has gone to Sawa. Khaled Abdu served his country as a journalist, and like some of the people who were excused from going to Sawa because of their jobs, the government excused him from going to Sawa.

    Nitricc:

    I decided not debate you, but you are mentioning my name with your typical signature: LIES. If you have alternative solution to get rid of PFDJ please present it cogently without mumbling and spiking it with LIES.

    I believe that my solution for Eritrean will work and is SANE and will save the nation, but do not lie about me saying Ethiopia should invade Eritrea, do not lie. I also believe that what Sal and Mahmuday and others who articulated their apprehension of my solution and their contention of the ultimate repercussions of my solution if it came to pass, I respect that and pondered on it, that is why my solution does not say invasion, it is an interrogative approach. I also think that the idea that Eritreans can do it alone because we can and because we did it false.

    But you are still telling lies by saying I call for invasion, stop it. I know sometimes during the heat of moment many of us say things we should not say or we do not normally say, but you made lies your habit by saying these things even when you are not in heated debate with me. If you are interpreting my approach as “invasion” I can help you see it that is is not an invasion, but the onus is on you quote me when I said that Ethiopai should invade Eritrea.

    Sal summarized me correctly, you can disagree with him, but I am challenging you to prove when was it that I said Ethiopia must invade Eritrea, otherwise I will be addressing you as the awatisata who is pathologically lies

    Do not cry wolf and fakery and pretend to love Eritrea more than the rest of us who advocate for approach that id different than yours, you are not. Do not pretend you know Eritrea than the rest of us because you do not

    the very problems we have in PFDJ is because it is based don LIES, misleading, presentence, smarmy arrogance, know it all and twisting the history and what other Eritreans think. You embody everything that PFDJ is, but you do not have to, you can attack our approaches without your signature LIES and Vulgarity, the same inferiorities that define PFDJ. You say our are independent thinker, prove it by trashing PFDJ’s traits.

    Short of that please do not lie about my approach to solve Eritrea’s problem: removing PFDJ before its legacy becomes irreversible.

    • Nitricc

      Semere, no offense but I never have a debate with you. you are good at insulting, needling and irritating. Sure we have exchanged name callings and argued but never debated. Now; let’s get to the point of the lie. You saying I lied; how is it that lied when I told you what you have said. You called the Weyane to get rid of the PFDJ. I ask you how they could that with out invading and you ignored my inquiry for clarification and kept repeating the same stupid call i.e. I conclude that is what you meant. Again, I will ask again; how is it possible for your TPLF to get rid of PFDJ with out invading Eritrea?
      Since you pretend to stand for a rule of law; how is okay for you for the Weyane to break the rule of law to get rid of the PFDJ? Are you contradicting and compromising on your value of the rule of law?
      I don’t pretend to love Eritrea; I love Eritrea. It wasn’t me who escaped Eritrea when she needed you; intact your tail between your legs all the way to welfare state. However; it will be me; who goes to Eritrea head held high; chest straight up and do everything for my country. So, yes there is a difference between me and you. You had your chances you chose to flee cowardly. The truth!
      Don’t pretend like you care for Eritrea and her people; no sane person will call for stanch enemy to INVADE his country. You just want to go home and show of your donated gadgets and brag about your slavery.
      Like I was telling Mizan; if the people of Eritrea are suffering as you have us to believe; they are armed and they will dump PFDJ over night. They don’t need you to tell them by whom they should be bringing change.
      So, for now just sit back and enjoy what ever crump’s the government of Canada throws at you and leave the change and mechanism of change to the people of Eritrea who are inside the country.
      That all for now and i shall tell you your biggest lie you told to Mahmuday.

      • Semere Andom

        Nitricc, your vulgar exchange is not limited with me my name calling is limited with you, that says something about both of us. So what ever you call our exchange, I am telling you to prove that I said Ethiopia should invade Eritrea

        Again, I am not going to repeat myself in detail, I stated my approach and it is on you to bring a different approach, you do not have one so far. Simply. I said the opposition must unite under one umbrella and then get Ethiopian help, and the heavy lifting and vision must be owned by Eritreans, this is simple English, sorry I cannot speak the other English you speak. If change comes from inside, it is the best choice, I also added, but that is hard to come or slow and I outlined my reasons. The second best is my approach. It was done before during the armed struggle, when Eritreans owned the vision and nothing wrong to do it now. You, who just suddenly found out you are Eritrean after struggling for identity cannot tell me I called for the invasion of my country. So if you want to change our exchange to debate then, am for it, but do not make up things, I did not say
        About escaping Eritrea, ok, I did not join the armed struggle, how about you? Or even your father or mother, or your siblings?????
        And you do not know what my family paid for Eritrea, so you better not go there as Saleh said. You have no clue about it like you have no clue about everything Eritrea.
        If you were born outside Eritrea then you can still go to serve, if you love it more than us, the Israelis do it, the Italians do, before trying to tell us you can go to Eritrea with your heads up, going to Sawa for intoxication and bragging is not national service

        You are no one to tell me to shut up, no body really, unless your prove to me you are some body worthy of it. I am Eritrean , born there, spend my very formative years there, know it more than you know your self and Eritrea and I do not have to go to Ghedli to have the right to talk about it. My birth and roots entitle me to talk about it, criticize it and offer my approach. When I say no body, I do not mean about your personal achievements, I do not to care about that, I mean it in terms what you and even your parents contributed to my Eritrea
        You anger swaddles anguished desire to be part of the bigger cause of Eritrea, why are are being slaved and serving USA if you care about Eritrea?

        • Mizaan

          Semere, I tell you these guys Nitricc, Tes, Gheteb, maybe Selam too would be dictators overnight but it took IA many years. Semere, just imagine you are in Eritrea espousing the very same things you are saying here and one of these guys is the president, what would happen to you? I bet you, you wouldn’t last a day. They would make you vanish. These guys are brutal. I have a new nickname for them – aspiring future wannabe dictators.

            Semere replies to YPFDJ Sara:

    You provided a soup of reasonable data which could have been believed and consumed. Unfortunately I noticed a fly in your soup. I don’t know about you but when I see a fly in the soup I throw all of it away.

    You must have worked hard to prepare this. Why in the world would you add a fly? You are fired.

            Ethiopia, August 19 (UNHCR) – The UN refugee agency announced on Tuesday that Ethiopia has overtaken Kenya to become the largest refugee-hosting country in Africa, sheltering 629,718 refugees as of the end of July. Kenya, in comparison, is host to 575,334 registered refugees and asylum-seekers.

            The main factor in the increased numbers is the conflict in South Sudan, which erupted in mid-December last year and has sent 188,000 refugees into Ethiopia since the beginning of 2014. There are at present 247,000 South Sudanese refugees in the country, making them the largest refugee population.

            They are followed by Somalis (245,000) and Eritreans (99,000). Over the last seven months, nearly 15,000 Eritreans and more than 3,000 Somalis also arrived in Ethiopia.

            “Together with the Ethiopian government and other partners, we are providing protection and humanitarian aid in 23 refugee camps and five transit sites around the country,” UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told reporters in Geneva.
