Let me just say this one more time: We are blessed to have been part and parcel
of this

ሓላል መሬት፡ we all call "Eritrea", the land of the brave! Sanction or no sanction, the
enemies of our land will never succeed in forcing us to succumb to their
evil design, and that is one
of the many merits that distinguishes us from the rest of them!

Dr. Bereketís sunset repenting
By Abraham Zeweldi
Realizing his sunset is nearing, and his age has slammed the door to his ambition becoming Eritrean president, Dr.Bereket repented and wants to rewind the clock and rerun history once again.

Misunderstanding the lavish respects and attentions he has enjoyed from the freedom lover Eritrean people over the years, instead of humbling he reciprocated with slap on the face to the Eritrean people. What a reneged! He has set a new standard in the history of betrayal record.

The satire of the irony, Dr. Bereket wants to see before his sunset Eritrea and Ethiopia back together, just to win hearts and minds of some innocent Ethiopians. Itís a wishful thinking, donít fool your self Eritrea and Ethiopia divorced for ever and they will live as neighbors in harmony for eternity. After watching the Eritrean crowd in New York, how they respect and love mother land via their President, Dr. Bereket is making speeches and writing books to parallel his history with president Isayaís, nice try Doctor.

Only a reminder, you know it very well more than anyone else that Isayas was making history harnessed his AK-47, sleeping with snakes and all kind of reptiles that you can name in the Sahel mountains, while you were at dine and wine in Addis, London and New York in your primetime. Above all, you had an intellectual responsibility more than anyone else prior to the birth of the Eritrean armed struggle.

Donít you see your picture that most African leaders fought to liberate their nations from colonizers were your peers, to name a few martyrdom Samora Machel, Nelson Mandela and Dr. Robert Mugabe? And yet you want to compare if a rat weighs, as heavy as an elephant.

Dr. Bereket can go cozy with Weyane for a short period of time, however the Ethiopian people have slammed the door with Dr. Bereket forever and Iím old enough to remember when you were a chairman of the inquiry commission in Ethiopian that headed to the execution of 63 Ethiopian, Eritrean ministers and generals, and history will not let you go unnoticed. Consequently, Ethiopians considered Dr. Bereket as primary accountable for these executions, after Mengustu admitted that executions were carried out as per Dr. Bereketís recommendations in his interviews, just after he has been thrown out from power by the gallant Eritrean and Ethiopian freedom fighters.

I am not condoning the lowly Amhara saying: ያባትህ ቤት ሲዘረፍ ኣብራህ ዝረፍ" which roughly translates: "When they rob your parents's home, join them"; but it is good time now to buy NEVSUN shares. The volume of shares sold has gone up from an average of 734,000 a day to 1.8 milion a day - almost triple the number of shares sold daily. More investors are interested ! We also must think "business" not "politics" this time and buy as many shares as we can and share the loot. The Woyane evil has always been a blessing in disguise. Business people are aware of the future boom and are taking a very safe risk fully knowint that the Woyane B...S... trying to destroy Eritrea's mining industry will NEVER WORK, THE WORLD OF COMMON SENSE BUSINESS WILL NOT ALLOW THE EVIL AND HASSADAT WOYANE TO WRECK NOT ONLY OUR ECONOMY but the world in general just to hurt Eritrea. The 500-page LIES is being exposed and won't be accepted by many to whom the LIARS have been exposed.

See the whole text in Dehai-News which contains the following:
"Shares of Nevsun Resources are trading today in above average volume, with the share price falling 12.4% to $4.81. About 1.8 million shares have been traded today, as compared to the 30-day average volume of 734,000 shares. Spikes in volume can validate a breakout or signify a potential turning point."

All you do is access Nevsun.com and buy there.

RE: "Eritrean Intelectuals, My Foot"

Why did these individuals feel it is necessary to claim Intelectual-ness? Did they want to claim legitimacy? Does earning an advanced degree make anyone truthful? Well- intentioned? Problem solver? Statesman? Seasoned diplomat?

Where as our culture requires humbleness, these guys are boasting to be well-educated and therefore, they are telling us that they know better as to how Eritrea should be led! All this, while the vast majority of Eritreans have rejected what they stand for--serving those who are ready to subjugate our people to the same old enemy.

Speaking of intellectuals, recall that a Wiki Leaks document from the US embassy in Asmara had mentioned that since all anti Eritrea groups are sponsored by Zenawi's regime,diaspora Eritreans will definitely reject them. Therefore, the ambasador in Asmara suggested, diaspora "intellectuals" should conduct seminars/discussions/presentations led by themselves without any connection/apparent connection with Ethiopia. (I have paraphrased this as much as I can remember)

Prompted by VOA news posted on Dehai and subsequent browsing one can find that such gatherings might have already begun! Some weeks ago VOA Tigrigna Program held an interview with some Dr. Afworki, about their seminar. This meeting was led by Eritreans although the money for the purpose came from Ethiopia. Though it was not a seminar, another interview was held on VOA ("Scholars Reject Addis Invitation") with those who refused to go to Addis Ababa to rally to Zenawi's agenda. Well,it would have been admirable if they did not regourgitated the same old Weyane propoganda.

My point here is to warn Eritreans--diaspora and at home--to be vigilant! It does not mean that just because they reject or seem to reject association with the Weyane, they are benign.

No government satisfies all citizens. However, in my opinion, given the present conditions our country is facing, anyone who advocates the change of government by outside forces, does not recognize the priority of the preservation of our independence and sovereignty over what they perceive to be objectionable in the country, put the country in servitude to other nations, or advocate the humiliation and forceful removal of government officials who have sacrificed the best part of their life serving the country--especially the President--is a traitor. These are the points that matter even if they claim to not be supported by Ethiopia.

Dear All: More on Somalia, Eritrea and the UNSC sanctions and possible solutions
Please bear with me; this is an open brain-storming, and/or thinking publicly. A Somali friend of mine told me that Siad Barre, ex-President of Somali, told the Somali factions that were trying to overthrow his government with the help of Ethiopia, 'You may succeed to oust me from power and I wouldn't mind handing over to an alternative Somali force, but you all don't have unity. Once I am gone, there would be no Somali State and your intense power struggle will disintegrate the Somali nation. Foreigners put their own interests, not Somalia's interests, first. You will be happy that you removed me but you shall regret when you see Somalia in chaos.'

If ex-President Siad Barre had said close to what I have summarized, his prediction was on target. I see two over-arching problems in Somalia. The greatest of all problems is anarchy. At present, there are many governments, authorities, militia forces, territorial administrations, and more new "states" continue to emerge, and everyone of them wants to exercise its sovereign power. There is no political order set up the peope of Somalia into one political society under one common State (Government). The absence of a legitimate Somali Government is the biggest problem. A Government is legitimate if either (1) it is militarily powerful enough to maintain basic security, controlling anarchic violence, imposing its brand of law and order, and/or (2) a Government is established by elected representatives of the people from the bottom up.

The second greatest problem originating from Somalia and Ethiopia, and greatly destabilizing the Horn of Africa (HOOFAF) region is irredentism. There is a belief among some Somalis that the Somali communities in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya together with their territories must be redeemed to re-join other Somalis and form a free nation of Greater Somalia. Mr. Dahir Aweyes' group still seems to believe so.This is a great source of conflict in post-colonial Africa. There are also some Ethiopians who believe that Eritrea is historically, culturally, and ethnically Ethiopian and is part of Ethiopia that must be redeemed. The underlying source of the 1998-2000 Ethiopia-Eritrea war is irredentism (i.e. a principle or policy directed toward incorporating (partially or completely) people and/or territories under another State--e.g. Eritrea-- within the boundaries of your own State--e.g. Ethiopia. Some Somalis, like some Ethiopians, are equally guilty with irredentism.

These two bigger problems generate other problems: the need for survival at the sub-national level (group, clan, district, family, sect, individual levels). Day-to-day security, self-centerdness, greed, want for money, foreign alliances, struggle for power, theological or secular ideologies that may be used as guides toward organizing and structuring society,etc. come into play. The men are fighting each other and the women, children and the elderly are left on their own. Look at the disaster that has followed.

Imposing a State through violence in Somalia has been tried by Somali groups and their foreign allies, and these projects were complete failures. The best option left is to re-initiate the dialogue and negotiations that were started in 2006. I think the most immediate step is to cool off the hot heads of the contenders. A complete ceasefire would do just that. It would also help food aid reach all Somalis from all directions. That would also curtail violence from spreading further into Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia.

The best option for Eritrea is, therefore, to pursue for ceasefire, dialogue, and negotiations among Somalis. Talk to TFG, Al Shabaab, Kamboni Group, Jamaat a Sunna, Puntland, Somaliland, etc. Approach them all, seek assistance from other nations (may be Turkey, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Arab League, Islamic States, Oman, United Arab Emirates, GCC states, Algeria, etc.). Put pressure on them by periodically reporting on what they said to the general public. Somalis in TFG and Al Shabaab claim they want to form an Islamic state. Make them elaborate what kind. Let them talk to others who formed states based on fundamental Islamic principles. How is theology going to be applied to a worldly human organization, a government? Then, see if the IGAD, AU, and UN would like to join in and how. The 1907(2009) UNSC resolution against Eritrea does not legally prevent Eritrea from contacting any group of Somalis, including so-called "terrorist" Al Shabaab for purposes of peace, security, stability and humanitarian reasons. Eritrea will define its true characteristics through the pursuit of peace in Somalia. That will also put the enemies and adversaries of Eritrea on the defensive. Eritrea and the Somalis would try to debunk "the will never dialogue or negotiate" self-serving theory of Ethiopia's Prime Minister Melless Zenawi. Just Eritrea should start doing things along this line and the results will indicate what needs to be done further.

Can Eritrea make irredentist Somalis stop their irredenta? I don't think so, but it could make a try and explain how irredentism destabilizes communities and nations. Eritrea could argue that the best way to handle the causes of Somalis outside Somalia proper is for each Somali community to exercise its right of self-determination, and that Somalis from Somalia proper should not try to fight for them and try to free them without their wishes. I think that this is the best approach for Eritrea and the region I can see right now.

Some words seem to lend (actually, fake) legitimacy just because they are quasi-"sacred." I am talking about words like democracy and human rights. Rconciliation, tolerance and forgiveness are no different.

Reconcile with whom? Tolerate what or whom? When? Where? In the context of our own Eritrea, are we going to tolerate those who advocate/call for the destruction of our country by our arch enemy? NO! Reconciliation? Those who knowingly and selfishly joined the the Weyane camp are hopelessly irreconcilable with any thing Eritrean. I do not even think they want reconciliation but rule over us. If any thing, they will have to reconcile themselves with the fact that the people of Eritrea will not let them nor the Weyane come in on the back of the Weyane tanks. Forgiveness is the easier part--hadn't the people of Eritrea forgiven those who had been maiming and torturing them during the struggle for our independence?

whether they pass the sanction or not we as Eritrean need to work our home work which is to build our country.we need to bring the love we had specially during independence struggle.how do we do that?
1, reconcile with all Eritrean inside and outside the country.
2,more justice and accountable specially for ordinary people
3.forgive one another
4.our president should stay but he need to know what is going on in the country to ordinary people.
5.our president need to have more conversation with his people as he was doing before and he need to encourage them any question they to bring to attention.
6.every body need tolerate each other................. i got more to say but these just some.
if we do what i said here then the enemy of Eritrea has no power even if they pass sanction. remember our strength is our unity, justice.with out justice, reconciliation and forgiveness we will have problem

What are you talking about? The Sanctions against Eritrea will pass. Its a given please resolution 1907 passed and now this resolution will pass Russia and China will risk their relationship with the US just because of Eritrea. Donít Expect Russia and china to Veto any Anti Ė Eritrea resolution like they did with Syria. Remember China voted for Resolution 1929 against Iran under alot of pressure I may add and consider they following: China trade with Iran is estimated and $100 Billion a year and they still voted against Iran. So Eritrea has no chance.

Let me acknowledge your advice and my temper was not ok for being rude to YAY. YAY sorry for my bad temper and looking forward to hear from you.

I am updated up to this minute....and let's wait and see on what would happen next.

As an ordinary man,when I think about the state of our Affairs ...the Gabonse Ambassador should be enticed by a heart warming approach from Eritreans. Money is the answer...no matter what... how many times do Ambassader rice favours the gabonians the money you provide matters and would change the climax and use this opportunity on peak time in to delaying the matter until the expiry of his tenure. YAY consultative reommondations are positive... but in my view,some of the contents are pushing us in to submissivenes,and virtually it sounds the weyanes caderes chorus aka belay waaahhhd!

God bless the Eritrean people.

Rezene,
I do not know why you are landing hard on YAY. At worst, YAY may have misunderstood some realities. I do not know either of you; so, I can base my opinion only on what YAY had written just before your posting. I do not think he has said anything that calls for your wrath.

Nevertheless YAY, I believe that you have misunderstood what is going on here. Eritrea is being required to compromise on the uncompromisable here--its sovereigny! I believe the bottomline here is that the powers that are trying to colonize Africa are determined to reward Zenawi for his service ("the Ethiopian (his) horse's" service) in Somalia. Definitely he is expected to do more in the future as an enforcer of the colonizers wishes in Africa. Remember the "anchor states" in Africa?

Looking at all the developments during the Eritrea-Ethiopia war and after, Wiki Leaks documents and the developments in the Horn region and beyond (in Africa), I have no doubt that all of this is just politically motivated. It has nothing to do with justice nor with terrorism nor with anything at all. If it had to do with justice, they would have forced Zenawi to let the demarcation take place instead of arguing that Ethiopia "must gain something" out of the 1998-2000 border war. So they oblige! They hold the people of the Horn of Africa and in particular that of Eritrea hostage denying it the right to live in peace.

By the way, on Djibouti, I hope that everyone recalls that a Wiki Leaks document talked about the fact that Zenawi thought the period before the Djibout-Eritrea border incidence was ripe for him to conduct his "regime change" operation. The document states that Guled sought the help of the US to deter Ethiopia from using his (Djibouti's) territory to attack Eritrea causing both to involve Djiboutian territory in the ensuing war.

At about the same period, Djibouti claimed invasion of its territory by Eritrea while Eritrea accused Ethiopia of setting heavy artilary and other armaments, along with troops, on Mount Tadjura? (forgot its name) on the intersection of the border of the three countries. This particular point was not supposed to be taken by either Eritrea or Ethiopia. What I think happened next was that Eritrea took up defensive positions along the Djibouti-Eritrea border to defend itself from an attack that would threaten its territory (notably, inclding the biggest prize--Assab). The way chosen out of this situation was to accuse Eritrea of invasion. That way, the US, Ethiopia and Djibouti would point this incidence of "war mongering"!

Of course this is my gut fealing. If and when one day, documents are leaked or declassified, this is what we will most likely learn.

I guess I got carried away. In any case, the accusations being politically motivated, they will do what they will (Kibelu'wa zideleyu aba gobiye, kokah yibluwa). I am sure that our government handles the case the best way it can. I am also sure that the government has its own capable advisors. If I may humbly put in my opinion, the best way to fight is to blunt the capability of any sanctions resolution from passing in the UNSC.

Most importantly, to stand on the side of our government, its leaders and our people in preserving the hard-won sovereigny of the country! If anyone at all is in any doubt, you are better off standing on the side of your people-- err on the side of your country!

YAY, the west has always sought to extinguish a viable African state by using various pretexts. At this rate it wouldn't be farfetched to imagine that we have to submit an application and await for approval from the west before we can farm our lands, build roads etc... In short, we're being asked to submit to slavery. The question is are we willing to become sheeple?

Dear All: Is the UN Security Council (UNSC) going to add sanctions imposed on Eritrea?

It might. I feel that it will get worse before it gets better for Eritrea. It is better to work for Eritrea under the assumption that the UNSC will impose more sanctions on Eritrea than not. The reason is that nothing bears fruit in an instant, and so the recent diplomatic efforts of Eritrea, though positive, may not have significant effects right away. I think it is better for Eritrean diplomats to strategize their short-term and long-term actions about the UNSC sanctions.

In the short-term, it would serve Eritrea best if it challenges the incriminating accusations the Somalia Monitoring Group (SMG) directs against Eritrea in its 2011 report. This report mixes up all kinds of hear-say evidence, testimonies of individuals in the countries that accuse Eritrea of wrong-doing, documents that Eritrea bought war materiels from other countries, unidentified witnesses and information (of uncertain credibility) provided by Eritreans in Diaspora who are adversarial to the Eritrean Government, etc. and are used without regard of the time period they were thought to have taken place.

When challenging such accusations, it would be better if Eritrea refers to the UNSC sanctions as well as Eritrea's policies and efforts for peace, stability and national security, and at this stage without accusing any State, group or individual. The idea should be "to pierce as many holes as possible to deflate the report's balloon,"---i.e. to refute the credibility of the SMG 2011 report. This may not convince powers that have already decided to subdue what some call "rogue" Eritrea under all (true or false accusations) circumstances, but it is good to put Eritrea's challenges on the record for future diplomatic efforts. Parallel to th is, Eritrean diplomats may need to work the mechanics of diplomacy with each member of the current UNSC. Eritrea is at a disadvantage because it is a new member in the international arena and its diplomatic corps is very very small. For these reasons, it may be better if Eritrea considers using the services of paid lawyers, volunteers and academicians intersted in research or resolving international misunderstandings.

To determine what is best to do in the long term, I think, a careful evaluation of Eritrea's policies and practices, and particularly those that put Eritrea in conflict with other nations, may be necessary. Eritrea is for stability, peace, security, development and international cooperation. But who is not for these general goals. The problem is in the details of the terms. Eritrea is in trouble with the UNSC for five main reasons: the Eritrea-Ethiopia border issue, the Somalia crisis, the Djibouti-Eritrea conflict, regional stability, and America's "Global War on Terrorism" as part of its "National Defence Strategy". Out of all these matters, the most prominent source of UNSC-Eritrea conflict seems to be Somalia. I would like to think that whatever support Eritrea provided to Somali patriotic nationalists would be justified by international conventions. Fighting against foreign invaders, occupiers, colonialists, etc. is not considered terrorism, but struggle for freedom, by the UN "Measures to eliminate international terrorism" (1994), the "OAU Convention on the Prevention and Combating of Terrorism" (1998?), and "The Arab Convention For The Suppression Of Terrorism" (1998). Eritrea didn't create the Somali crisis; others did. Eritrea didn't support any Somali forces to destabilize either Somalia or the region. Those who invaded Somalia did distabilize Somalia. The Union of Islamic Courts had no Al-Qaeda objectives in 2006-2009, but America, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya did not want it to share State power because of their own reasons--i.e. "terrorism" for the U.S., claim of Somali territories for the three neighbors. Eritrea opposes any Somali territorial claims outside Somalia's borders, but wanted to support Somalis to re-establish their national State. Eritrea is not against the Somalia Transitional Federal Government but believes that TFG lacks legitimacy among the people of Somalia, which is self-evident. America is in Somalia primarily for its "Global War on Terrorism" interests. Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Kenya are primarily interested in their territorial integrity. For these reasons they are for supporting one group against another and stopping the "Islamists" from coming to or sharing State power. Eritrea's objective is genuine and for the best interests of the Somali people as well as the Horn of Africa region. Eritrea's goal would succeed if it could be reached into Somali national elections. But before that Somalis have to dialogue and negotiate how that could be accomplished. Now Al Shabaab, for whatever reasons, seems to claim to be closer to Al Qaeda, which is the main manifestation of current international terrorism. Eritrea is against Al Qaeda, or international terrorism. The other nationas are collaborating and integrating their interests against their enemies, and their including Eritrea together with their enemies for they percieve Eritrea as the friend of their enemies. It is from this predicament that Eritrea has to pull itself out of. It could take its time, but it could be done by either finding stability in Somalia or by Eritrea re-assessing its priorities, policies and practices.

DEAR ALL: JUST REMEMBER WHERE WE ALL ERITREANS WERE YEARS AGO, WHERE ARE WE, WHERE ARE WE HEADING, WHAT ARE WE DOING TO BETTER OURSELVES TODAY VS. YESTERDAY, AND WHAT WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE END WETHER WE PROTEST IN NY, SWEDEN, OR ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD!!! Deki Eri, our history continues to be so fresh and so rich; our mission is aimed nothing but self reliance and peace for all of us and our neighbors. The horn of Africa's progress continues to be one step forward and 2 steps back ward because the most populause nation of the horn of Africa, Ethiopia, continues to be the playground of all paedophiles, rapist, bankrupted diplomats, pimps, prostitutes, child traffickers, and an experiment of future western blood suckers. Ethiopia and the people of Ethiopia continues to be the play-toys of many greedy and evil so called leaders, doctors, and educated individuals- that includes the ancient Eritrean doctor who claims "Abraham Lincoln" of both people; they know better these so called leaders and doctors can not play games among the people of Eritrea but ONLY AMONG THE VAST 80 MILLION ETHIOPIANS AND VAST LAND OF ETHIOPIA. THEY KNOW THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH MURDER IN ETHIOPIA, THEY KNOW THEY CAN GET WAY WITH LOOTING IN ETHIOPIA, AND THE KNOW THEY CAN PIMP AND PROSTITUTE IN ETHIOPIA. As these and others become the case of our region it is for our best interest to voice our opinions as Eritreans wether we our in east, west, south, and north.
