    such topics should be out of discussions..Eritreans should discuss about real issues for instance if they want to be part of Arab,if they want sell their ports,if they want Isayas as head of state.if Arabic to second language which is alien to them…

      Do you know that slavery nowadays is only in Eritrea. The tyrant turned the whole population into his slaves. The worst thing about the slavery in Eritrea is that the tyrant is cruel because he is not providing his slaves with food, water and other basics.
      Don’t also forget that the tyrant is also accused of harvesting organs from his slaves to sell them to the rich. As you hear and see, the Eritrean youth are dying in the shores of other countries and in the high seas to escape the cruel treatment of the tyrant. What else do you need that ending slavery is every Eritrean priorities.

    The people are are hungry and deprived of basic necessities, and life is getting unbearable for the every one..
    We must discuss and waste our time on how to get rid the cruel Tembenay from power and from the face of this earth.
    The current flag is that of EPLF,and doesn’t represent the people who have never had the chance to vote for it.
    The real issue is how to save the country from the dictatorship and slavery.
    Thank you for your input on this matter.

      Dear Berhe

      The so-called EPLF flag belongs to Iseyas only. Even the leadership has not voted on it.
      In one meeting of the EPLF leadership he took it out of his pocket and said this is our flag.
      All present were surprised and shocked but did not say anything. Since then it has been changing colors depending on Iseyas whims.
      After long absence the blue flag has returned to unite Eritreans of all walks of life.
      The dictator’s attempt to divide Eritreans on every issue has failed.
      Except for a few like Amanuel of Assenna who want Shabia’s system and ideology to remain in place, but without Iseyas, the people are looking for a radical change in Eritrea.
      The dictator’s flag will be removed.

    Thank you Dr Gebre for teaching our people on the Bandera issue , I hope you and other Eritreans come and continue to teach and guide their people. We need the guidance of our educated people so bad at this difficult and scary times. My input on the subject is that we stop arguing about it and put 1st thing 1st, human life is important than Bandera . people can carry which ever Bandera they choose to, we should not put any judgment on any one unless we are looking excuses to not to work together.

      Eritrawit,I commend you for your objective statement,who cares if we adorn our flag with a caravan of camels carrying our imdadat ,or nine stars in the corner and a blue background depicting our nine provinces and shimmering seashore………it is up to the majority people’s wish as long it is not super imposed against the will of the masses like this one by the tyrant.Indeed it is untimely,the burning issue today is,how do we save an entire nation on the brink of extinction,how do we change a self appointed one man rule who tells us what to think,when to rise and sleep,when to flush the toilet,how much to save and withdraw,when to move and stay put,depending on his mood,when he smiles the nation smiles,when he frowns the nation frowns,he owns the nations children,he uses what he likes and disposes what he doesn’t like ,he can sell the nation with a stroke of a pen he doesn’t need congressional approval.Who gave him this immense power? this is the burning issue.This is what we need rally around to change.This should be our focus,otherwise,forget a flag,we will end up with no nation only gypsies scattered around the world.
