Why One Nation Movement is not different from YPFDJ Movement? Prove:

This is an extract from my facebook page comment section. It was given by a member of One Nation movement against me. After reading the comment, I felt that it is a typical YPFDJ Cadre reaction towards dissidents. Hence, I am using this as a prove on how much the One Nation Movement members and their political approach is similar to YPFDJ. I do not know the person who wrote these comments but he looks not happy at all for what I am advocating for – peace between the people of Eritrea and Tigray region of Ethiopia, which is similar stand with the PFDJ Cadres.

The Beginning

tes:

Did u accept the Mekele Univ Invitation by the TPLF Cadres ?
Sounds like it.

Trying to be another Ayte Amanuel Sahle?

A new born Blenay-

Tigraway?

Good luck.

First Zereba then what ?

Ghibri!

We welcome any approach for a Peaceful Co-existence between the two neighboring nations and peoples and MUTUAL Regional Integration 

BEYOND THAT, any thing and anyone, that can jeopardize the Eritrean Unity in any form is but a TREASON and a TRAITOR, and he or she should be dealt seriously and swiftly in an UN-ambiguous way !

We will apply the Newahin merrarin Halenghi /Kurmaj EPLF!

Stop repeating and narrating the obsolete centuries old stories and Enda Siwwa Zanta and tsiwitsiway.

Eritrea is an Independent and Sovereign Nation and a UN -member State.

The Tegaru u r trying to cover up for, should first know and accept that fact, then GET OUT from our Sovereign Lands unconditionally and apologize genuinely to Eritreans for what they have done to Eritreans rather than aggravating the “ animosity” they are experts on by attempting to create further havoc and division among Eritreans thru their FAILED, rotten and obsolete region and religion based divisive politics ;then try to live in peace with us as Good Neighbors!

Focus on bringing about a positive change in Eritrea through Unity in Diversity of Eritreans .

It is NOT the time now to talk zanta and tsiwitsiway.

A final word /my opinion on your take:

They are talking facts ,not an EXPIRED zanta !

U r acting and talking like the worst “hypocrite or even a bigot” for calling names, selectively discriminating and giving prescriptions as to who should have a right to talk and who should not!

If few bigots and traitors have a right to insult Eritreans publicly based on their region and religion, the ORIGINAL and GENUINE ERITREANS have a legit RIGHT to express their opinions.

BTW, why don’t u have a courage to call the spade, a spade, about what the SWORN ENEMIES of Eritrea and Eritreans are bluffing about Eritrea and Eritreans negatively day and night ?

It takes two to tango!

They can’t torture us like they have done for the last 20 years and at the same time tell us that we are their brothers —-while STABBING us from behind!

Reconciliation is a two-way-lane,FYI!

We Eritreans have said MERHABA from the get to go by FORGIVING them….. but they have abused our peaceful approach as a weakness!

( Hamashenay Asha??)

Can u equally address them like you are finger pointing at your own people?
Not only that, you should CONDEMN and DESPISE them, not just their evil deeds and agenda !

The End!!!

Mythology Vs. Reality: the case of Jebertiyyah-Sufi Brotherhood Politics

Eritrea is not the land of Mythologists. It is the land of brave people and heroism. But, our religion is full of mystical views. and, indeed religion is basically born from mystical worldview.

The problem comes when this mystical worldview is tried to change it into a reality. It is different. Eritrea is full of mystics. It is the land of secrecy. But the people are not mystical. They are real, brave and determined people. This is a proved fact.

But now, there are people who are trying to make Eritrea the land of Mystic people by manipulating the mind. I feel ashamed of this political intoxication.

Let us come to the real world and fight for human rights and democracy. Eritrean people are dying.

#Beyan_Negash from awate.com, wrote,

Orally passed mythologies and legends abound in the realms of prophet proportions as aided and abetted by lack of rigorously researched material being availed up until the publication of “Menyom Eritrawyan Jebrti” earlier this year. Dr. Mustafa (2015) put the Eritrean Jebertis out of the myth into the realms of historical and cultural map, one that’s backed by over 150 scholarly references.

De-Colonizing Eritrea from 200 years colonization

In this facebook presentation, I have tried to explain the systematic expansion of al-Mirghani Arab families into Eritrea and how they are still capable of colonizing Eritreans, the conquest of Axum [holy] city, and our destruction from the main cause of our suffering.

In my argument, I tried to explain how the Italians(Europeans) and Arabs cooperated to colonize Eritrean people so easily. I tried to explain how the al-Mirghani royal family were able to launch a struggle from their base Kassala, and expanded easily to the highlands while still targeting Axum.

My Letter in the Case of Esseyas Teklebrahan Incidence of 2015

Dear ESMNS,

I am calling some emotionally drived individuals who are threating openly individuals like Elsa Chrum. I am following the on-going word exchange and outraged hatred based accusations.

My call is, if ESMNS is fighting for justice, and it stands against the PFDJ system, there is no rational reason to follow injustice and PFDJ way of threatening people. If Elsa Chrum did something wrong, let you open a file and charge her. She is living in the world where there is justice and any concerned group or individual can suit a case.

Concerning Esayas, I hope he will not be endangered like our previous freedom figheters, the Menkae, who vanished unnoticed by EPLF. Let’s remember that history can repeat.

To conclude, my call is for wisdom, justice and free from emotions. This will not help the journey to end the tyranny in Asmara. Equally, I call the leadership of ESMNS to intervene genuinely and rest the case for the common good. If this case is handled wrongly, the YOUTH opposition group will be nothing but a carbon copy of PFDJ and a possible future dictator.

tes, one of your good wishers

Veery very late. If Simret had all these follow-up, it shouldhave worked early to inform the public from un necessary conspiracy.

I hope people like you will continue to make things clear and sit with a friendly environment with all concerned individuals or organizations and in particular with IT and his family to settle the matter peacefully and strengthen our struggle.

Divisions and accusations will only give advantage to PFDJ. We should should show to Eritreans that we can sit together no matter what political approach we have and solve problems in a more civility.

I consider this as a lithmus test of Simret and EYSC, as youth oppsotion camps, which I always give my heartful support despite and I believe that we the YOUTHS are able to sit together and negotiate for the common good.

Thank you again for the other side perspective and follow-up. And I call you to increase your effort in order to nurture civility.
