  • Afewerki December 4, 2014

    Where had the Italian and German Police been till now? So smart and efficient as their respective security systems are, they could have no problem at all either to arrest Measho Tesfamariam or to catch the other (tragedicaly!!!) Eritrean Human Traffickers with their [Italian MAFIA like BOSS]? This is a Long overdued hypocratic action, but too late is better than nothing ! We will wait and see the next hypocratic and conspired actions!

    The Italians and GERMANS(!) defend naturaly only their respective interests; only the victim Eritreans have no defender as it should be.

    God bless the honest Eritrean victims !

  • AYE GOOOOD December 4, 2014

    We are in a huge trouble as a nation. As we can see it the Italian politics playing game with their old colony Eritrea. I am sure they know very well, what the Dictator Musolini Junior, is in our country doing to our people, that chocking by its neck for the last 23 years. Their Ambassador was kicked out few years back by the same dictator. That was good enough to boycott him. Instead they scratch their back may be for some crime Mafia like business to dump their wast material shit on the Red Sea Coast who knows. Any way to arrest this dealers, call them traffickers is not going to solve the flow of refugee. The only way is to remove the worst dictator of our time. The world should help us to remove him with its roots, and replace him by the Rule of Law. the root of our problem, which is the dictatorial system. It is like giving some tips for the dictatorial regime to buy some game time. The criminal is Isaias himself. I would to callhim. ‘Mussolini Junior’ to be reminded if you will. When I say this I wouldn’t pass by with out thanking the good friendly people of Italy. Who stand with us with the just seekers in hard time in many events in the past and time to come until our victory. Such as the tragedy of Lampuduza, special thanks to Madame the Mayor of that city. She wept with us like mothers and sisters did and so many others too. You will be in our hearts. Thank you again. If,I have the power I will granted you Eritrean citizenship of Honor With Sheik Mohammed of Sinai. thank you!

  • afewerki December 5, 2014

    @Ogabai, I agree with you mostly.

    The hypocrats, Italians [with their German friends as always in the history of East Africa] are just repeating their racist history once again, we didn’t only recognise it early enough

    It was a coordinated plan with the German interior minister Otto Schily already in 2004, to keep the African refugees’ in a concentration camp in North Africa! Then the refugees could apply for entry to the Heaven (Europe)

    Now we see the concentration camps in Libya and Israel and they keep our brothers and sisters like animals or even worse[then in Europe, aniimals have right per law!]. They slaughter our kids in Sinai, just at the border to the `HOLY LAND`, Israel and sell their organs in black markets !!!!

    We the ignorant AFRICANS/Eritreans do not dare to think and talk about our GOD-given heavenly Africa, a rich continent that provides almost every thing you like, [autarch area] without any need from outside. Why do not we make it ourselves, instead of letting Neo-colonizers do it for us!

    We need neither a Mussolini Junior nor any other consultant, in reality we are matured enough in all aspects. We have very competent, even over-qualified sisters and brothers. Let’s believe in our natural and aquired potential; no doubt, we have it.

    Lets work hard and unit to disengage the Dictator Musolini Junior from serving the [Italian & German] fascists and Neo-colonizes, who converted PIA to DIA, i.e to be the worst Dictator ever.

    As to the tragedies in Lampuduza and Sinai:
    i) Even if the Madame, the Mayor of that city, wept with us like mothers and sisters did and so many others too. It is Italy (her country)& co that are conspiring the situation in our country and inflicting so much misery and tragedy. It is just human to feel our sadness.
    ii) As to Sheik Mohammed of Sinai, do we realy know the situation there and the role of some so-called NGOs operating there? I think not at all. May be the ‘good man’ has a great heart, but the interweaved and complex extinction of our youth there (Guantanamo!!) is not clearly represented to the consumers. There are also other realities / perspectives than the medias feed us with distorted informations. Do we know exactly who the colaborators [/NGOs] there are?

    Remember, Eritrea IS OUR COUNTRY, not one man’s [DIA’s, foreign] gift!

    • ogbai December 9, 2014

      Mr.Afewewrki. For a moment I thought DIA showed up for comment here. But I found out another brother from the true mother of ours. My offering an Honor citizen to two individuals is only to encourage others to help us in our cause. Another thing you touch about our sources as distorted media is a little bite out of the line. I believe they are doing a good job with out having any major support of any sort. They might not perfect,but even as we speak or exchange ideas and comments is of a high value itself. Thank you!

  • hureya December 5, 2014

    they are making the bad bessnuss on thier brothers.the suck the blood of thier mother womb,but still we have to continu the action on the military staffs and Isyas they are too involved on it and they are the root couse

  • tekle December 5, 2014

    What are we turning into? We are becoming like the Nigerians
