Review overview
  • Message to all Eritreans inside and outside Eritrea!
    The dictatorial regime of Isayas afeworki is deteriorating.It has reached on the level of not operating even its day to day ordinary missions let alone bringing higher performances of the government.Isayas is starting to hide him self from any government and party members at higher level .The public is unaware of the current situation in Eritrea.Some of the military and government officers are consulting their nearest relatives and friends how to exit from Eritrea.Some of the diplomats of Eritrea abroad are said that they have arranged to defect but until their last time they do not stop to count their salaries.
    There fore we(members of the Eritrean army) here by reuest and urge every Eritrean inside and outside Eritrea to cooperate the country from failing.Eritrea is at the verge of collapse!every Eritrean inside and outside Eritrea to take a continous protest!

    Dear Assenna
    It is very disturbing to hear Eritrean youth ending up in the hands of the most barbaric death sickening ISIS, and I urge all Eritreans to stop travelling to Libya at this extremely dangerous time.
    But, Amanuel
    I was a bit confusing for me the way you put your question to the boy to explain you whether the leaders of the ISIS were “foreigners or Africans”. What did you mean by that? I mean, would you consider these terrorists from Egypt, Tunis, Libya or other North African countries as “foreigners or “whites”? I did not understand what you meant when you said “foreigners”? For instance, It should be impossible for one to distinguish a man from Libya and Syria or from other Middle East.

      Dear Michael, I just would like to say a few lines regarding your question to Assenna. Firstly the interview was conducted over the phone (and possibly on a mobile phone) which makes it hard for both to communicate smoothly. Secondly I seem to observe that the interview was probably edited for convenience. So we do not have it in full.
      Thirdly it must be emotionally draining and mentally disturbing for Amanuel Eyasu (and the likes of Elsa Chyrum, Meron Estifanos…) to listen to these harrowing stories on daily basis. If anything I admire Amanuel et al for their still and grit. Therefore, I would not pick on such words like ‘foreigners’ (which can mean non-Libyans, non-Eritreans … Although I have not listened to the interview again, I would not be surprised if Aamnuel used the word inappropriately.) I think the message of the interview is clear. The what is the purpose of your question?

      Assenna: I would suggest you (and other websites) to put a flashing message stating that it is hugely risky for Christians travelling to Libya, Sinai and so on. Normally information is power, but in this case information is life!

      Thank you

    Thank you brother Berhane for your courage to speak and tell the world despite the hell you went thru to what you saw with your eyes and heard with your ears. This will be remembered as history for many generations to come. We will never forget.
