Eritreans are Responsible for Eritrea’s Woes

Dear Reader: The Eritrean tragedy requires our full attention and unreserved dedication for a solution to our problems, with all the daring frankness that it demands.  And, please be patient with my analysis, which, I must admit, has been said by so many, in so many different ways. In short, we are repeating ourselves. And we know it!!! But adamantly refuse to face our realities.

Eritreans have fought for thirty-years, with horrendous sacrifice, to have a say on their own country – Eritrea. In that endeavour, no one else can have a say, but Eritreans. Unfortunately, the greatest Houdini Act fell upon Eritrea by a single dictator who manipulated his way for twenty-seven years, with the greatest patience, coupled with meticulous deception and ended-up controlling the Life of Eritrea. To do so, he used the two divisive factors of Eritreans i.e. RELIGION and REGION (tribalism). And so, Issayas–Afewerki–Abraha–Miratch became the absolute ruler and self-appointed President, presumably for Life, with a possibility that his son would then be the successor. This is the reality of our doings facing Eritrea. Yes, our doing! And no one else!

Question: What do Eritreans should do?  The logical answer lies within Eritrea. If Eritreans were admirably capable in the 30-year struggle for Liberation, they can surely challenge [at least attempt to do so] a self-appointed dictator. If, on the other hand, Eritreans are convinced that they cannot ‘clean their house’, then it is tantamount to declaring that Eritreans are not capable of securing their highly-paid Liberation.  In a sense – simpleton as it may sound – Eritreans are, after all, not capable of handling their dearly paid for Liberated State. To make it even more bizarre regardless of the situation, the World Organization accepted Eritrea as one of the 195 Member States!!! Eritrea is, in fact, one of the ‘Honourable’ Member States of the Human Rights Commission!!! Abusing of Eritrean People’s Rights is NOT considered as Human Rights by the consequential definition of the Respectable, Source of Wisdom, Human Rights Commission of the United Nations!!! It is cynical of all  cynicism. But in diplomatic world, it is the respectable exchange of ‘scratch my back; I scratch yours’. So Issayas Afewerki Abraha plays the game to its ultimate limit – unhindered by any Global rules. To be honest, I admire the Devil!!! One human being manipulating the entire population of five million!!! Amazing!!! I know Hitler did it;  Mussolini did it;   Stalin did it;  and the entire African Leaders are doing it over the entire population of  the “Dark” Continent of Africa. .So, there is nothing new!!!

So, our woes is the same with other individual States. Take Ethiopia. The cooperation and diplomatically agreed upon and signed between Eritrea and Ethiopia are wonderful and a great relief to the ordinary people of the two previously enemy countries. Ethiopia gets what it was aiming for and Eritrea (which actually means Issayas) will get: a) fraternal diplomatic recognition; b) revised good relationship with neighbouring countries; and c) some sort of written recognition from Saudi Arabia for the ‘excellent’ job that the Dictator is undertaking.  It is important to note that no country indulges in the internal affairs of the other. In the case of Eritrea and Ethiopia, their internal affairs are intact to their respective mode of operation and governance.  To make it glaringly clear, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia has NO business in the internal affairs of Eritrea – and vice versa. If Eritreans have a wishful thinking that the young, charming, tireless Prime Minister and the People of Ethiopia will come galloping to save the Eritrean people from the yoke of Issayas Afewerki Abraha it would be historical testimony of Eritrean NAIVITY.

Let us be clear: We Eritreans are the custodian of, and responsible for, our own internal affairs. No force on Earth cares about our Life more than we do. If Eritreans, in spite of our long experience, still maintain the cancerous disease of parochialism, we are doomed for ever. In particular, if Eritrean Intellectuals [‘blind’ estimate = 5000] of the Highest Order, with abundant international experience, refuse to get together and draft a resolution to save Eritrea [i.e.  reflecting the noble intention of the 30-year war of horrendous sacrifice] then, for sure ERITREA IS LOST for ever. In that case, the horrendous sacrifice made by gallant Eritreans of all ages will come to NOTHING. WHAT A SELF-MADE TRAGEDY!!!      THE END

    • Asmara Eritrea October 26, 2018

      An excellent article, what a self-made tragedy indeed!

      In my view, there is one and only one way to end the current Eritrean nightmare. That is to remove Isaias from power by all means – we only need one brave Eritrean with guts and the right tools. I am sure 2019 will be the year when Eritrea declares its independence from Isaias.

      The clear sign that Isaias is a brutal monster is that he assumed a nationality other than his own in much the same way Hitler, an Austrian, did. Such people try to be more natives than the natives themselves and end up destroy the new country they claim to belong. Isaias is not one of us, and he can never be a true Eritrean in much the same way Hailselase cannot be other than Ethiopian.

      Isaias never fought for Eritrean independence – instead he spent his time in caves, drinking whiskey, hoping some day he will be the leader of Eritrea or Ethiopia, he didn’t care which.

      By removing Isaias from power, Eritrea can be led by an Eritrean who feels and understands the pain of his people. Until such time the agony continues.

      Eritrea forever, death to dictatorship.

      hailom (aka aditekelezan),
      Funny! Few correction though:
      1. መንካዕ was from all Kebessa regions, not just ኣከለ-ጉዛይ (even though DIA tried and succeded to make it look like that). To make it worse, he did it again with Yemin.
      2. My comment was about ካርነሽም not about ሓማሴን in general
      I am just wondering why Assenna lax the restriction of using many nicks when it comes to you. I personally know you have not less than 10.

      I know you are very clever person and I hope you use it in a a constructive work in your daily life.

      • Dawit October 27, 2018

        Hailom anbessa, we’ve to ignore poor simon.g as he is damaged/messed up beyond repairs moron. In his old deteriorating age all he does is moaning & complaining to assenna.

        • Simon G. October 27, 2018

          Now I am old, there is nothing wrong with that but I am ወርጠበ (if you know what it means)
          If you are going to be one of those ሰላሕታ ወራር, try to learn from your Uncle Sye (Hailom, adetekelezan, MiHretu, and so many, endless nicks). At least he is creative.
          I feel I am talking to my 3 yrs old son, at least he is joy (I wish I can say the same about you).

Congra bro, I just wonder what you’ve called your little prince the future governor of “hatelahuzay”! How about Berihu S. Gereaneniya? Let’s hope you are not going to call him awate or bin laden Gerteaneniya!!

            simon G,
            Democracy is the right to say stuff that others must tolerate. It does not bother me what you say.some maybe offended by it. I am glad assenna accomodates such brave opinions that other eritreans consider taboo.

        Dear Simon G. you see the malicious Mr many names (ተኽላይ) is happy now because he is feeling that finally he dragged one of assenna’s best commentators to his agenda. From very early it was clear that ተኽላይ has a single mission, when he insults Muslims his aim is for some naive person to jumb and insult Christians and when say hatelahuzay it is obvious to what he wants to drag us and that is the main tool DIA used systematically to divide us and dominate power for lo G time.

        • Dawit October 27, 2018

          Wedi Halima the same old garbage liar crook, what Islamico formula did you freaking use to come to your pathetic childish taliban conclusions? I DIDN’T even use any hatelahuzay or hetellaguzay stuff, did I? I respect my “hatelahuzay” friend highly as unlike you and your other boring comrade k.t. wedi ayte Gereaneniya nebsi is a veru smart/clever guy with great sense of humor. Go back to your old madrassas and learn simple communications skills as a reformed human!!

            Danilo/Fernilo scarico, me frustrated, nay, never ever. I am extremely happy and cheerful guy but sorry to disappoint you, OK!
            What exactly do you mean by ‘Assenna is giving you a chance to the way, yours humiliation’??? How do you freaking translate this into your evil Arabic then? You seem to miss my “pig pigo” compliments, don’t you? Call yourself lucky we are allowing you on our civilized and peaceful websites and be grateful to us AGAZIANS.

        I am trying to connect the dots. These guys are protecting both HGDF & Woyane at the same time. What does that it tell us?
        Isayas Afewerki Abraha (not Abraham btw) Mirach (brother of HaSey Yohannes), the Tembienay never abandoned his roots. Yes, he keep saying Woyane (million times) but that is a perfect cover.
        Those idiot Eritreans who think he is theirs are screwed by one Evil man.

  • Tsehaye October 28, 2018

    Deat Rezene,

    I fully agree with you that Eritreans should take full responsibility for what is going on in their country. It is because of our submissive nature that we find ourselves in this harrowing situation. The problem I see with your article is that you think the Eritrean problem started after independence. You kept glorifying the experience of Eritreans during the barbaric gedli as if it was owned and lead by the consensus of all Eritreans and you think Isaias was not part of it or he had no power. This is a cardinal mistake I see in your post. Let me tell you the glaring truth: Gedli (EPLF) was led by Isaias from its inception to the dawn of independence. Everyone else was following his orders. Isaias led gedli the same way he has been leading Eritrea for the last 27 years. Let us be honest to ourselves. Hiding the truth will not help us to see properly and solve the pressing issues Eritreans are facing.
