Subject: Exodus of Eritreans in Search for New Eritrea
The phenomenon of exodus of Eritreans — in singles or in mass — is not a new phenomenon. Apparently, it is in some holy book, which means Eritreans are only abiding by the dictates of the Mighty Lord, way above in Heaven, who favourably knows better what is good for Eritreans !!! Really??? Ouch! Anyway, I am not a scavenger of the good book, nor of any other religious books on supernatural forces. Warning: my doubt is not out of deep studies but rather out of honest lack of brain to understand the supernatural phenomenon. If Eritreans, on solid Earth, are offended, I apologize for the ሃጠው ቀጠው ።
But I can’t deny the world-wide facts of Eritreans taking horrendous visible and touchable phenomenon where a flood of population of Eritrea risk their dear Life, searching for sanctuary — or for some thing else that cannot be readily available for comprehension. When was the last time Eritrea was wholly custodian of its Land and comfortably be a free, independent, democratic country? Eritreans gallantly fought for thirty-years for the illusive freedom, liberty, happiness, independence, democracy, only to find themselves under the most cruel indigenous dictator, ever seen in Eritrea. Eritreans were completely dumbfounded — so much so, they had to find some sort of a consolation That consolation comes with one revelation that Issayas Afewerki Abraha Mirach is, after all, NOT an Eritrean!!! With that revelation, it did not matter that Issayas lead a 27-year war to INDEPENDENCE of Eritrea and iron-ruled Eritrea for almost 30 years!?!? And still it did not matter that he goes on strong — regardless where he may be hiding from place to place to multitude of sanctuaries. He is doing HIS job PERFECTLY I.e. TO SAVE HIS LIFE and continue to be MASTER of Eritreans. And unsurprisingly, his son Master Abraha may wound-up being his Father’s replacement to rule Eritrea according to his wishes. And the exodus of Eritrea will continue.
Where do we then go from here? It is VERY SAD to say that, in the mean time, we will continue to be busy insulting each other on the free Internet at www.archive.assenna.com or any where else. Let us admit that it is a perfect admittance of our hopelessness.
There is also another avenue where we sooth our failures to dislodge Issayas from the post. We can keep writing endless articles [like I am doing now} and satisfy our selves like the legendary shepherds who excused them selves in their language Tigrigna [I will be glad to be corrected]: “ ዝገደፍናሎም የብልናን፤ ነተን ከብቲሞ ወሲዶመን “!!! And so, the natural rational is for Eritreans, living abroad, to live-with : a) the age-old 80 to 90 opposition parties; b) the newly established group of 95-Members, entirely holders of Ph D Degrees; c) all individual personalities, awaiting the downfall of Issayas for their own ‘dreams’ and the remaining majority [which includes me] are busy sneering at each other or just producing mass of Articles.
Assenna.com comes up with a good news item : “ATV: ኣብ ኣስመራ ጽኑዕ ጸጥታዊ ሓለዋ፡ ወጥሪ ሰፊኑ ኣሎ; እንግሊዝን ኣመሪካን ሰራሕተኛታት ኤምባሲአን ኣውጺአን “ In contrast, could it be said that Eritreans living abroad comfortably would get together as ONE unit, for ONE goal, supporting the Internal Action to liberate Eritrea? Let us be honest to ourselves and admit the truth.
During the period of ’real-Issayas’ — not the artificial and deceptive Issayas displayed during the 30-year war — many Eritreans were liquidated as guarantee for his dictatorial mastership. And the only one University in the country was closed; students locked under military guidance; buildings and roads dilapidated and worn out, and finaly the Eritrea that we knew, once upon a time, is “gone with the wind” — a title of an ‘ancient’ Hollywood Movie. This is historical fact with horrendous liquidation of Eritreans. The visible exodus of Eritreans in search for a ‘HOME’ is glaring. It is also a glaring contrast to the Eritrean gallantry of 30-year war against well armed and populace country Ethiopia. What ever happened to the gallantry and bravery?!? What happened to the UINITY of Eritreans which had no crack for the wind?!? It is the end of that glory. Now, the new reality of Eritrea must be faced.
Eritrea has inherent sociological problem consisting of the cancerous religion, divisive region and/or the mini sociological traits which I wouldn’t fall to such a level as to mention them.
And so, the story of Eritrea goes on —and on — and on for seemingly eternity. Eritreans are proud independent people. They are very confident of themselves, without space for modesty. They seem to have their own meaning of living, which, by the standard of the majority of the World, is really only “existance”. But, It does not seem to matter to Eritreans what the world thinks!!!. Let us admit: Eritreans are profusely proud of themselves መን ከማና whether the world likes it or not. Example: Eritreans have always been fighting as if fighting is a tranquilizer to them. Eritreans fought against Ethiopia for independence, freedom, liberty for thirty yeas and won. And to the utter surprise to outsiders, Eritreans fought against each other in the middle of a war against Ethiopia !!! Unbelievable as it sound it literally happened keeping the war against Ethiopia, seemingly, at a standby while Eritreans massacred each other until one of the forces was completely exhausted and defeated. It sounds as a perfect fiction story. But, the war between two brethren — ELF vs EPLF proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt that the inherent major problem of Eritrea is still on the back burner for future liquidation of each others at a moment of triggering fraternal war. It is NOT far fetched. It is a permanent obstacle to the development and independence of Eritrea in the true sense of the words. At the very least, it is a weakness that “others” can utilize for their own benefit. In other words, Eritrea would be a “pony” in global political ‘chess game’.
Will Eritreans around the Globe be disturbed and align themselves as ONE TRUE FORCE for the incarnation of ERITREA? The ANSWER belongs to each and every Eritrean around the Globe. As to our relationship with the World, let me be insensitive and venture to say that the World may not even wink a sympathy for the dysfunctional and totally disintegrated Eritrea. THE END
