Response to the 100 or so African comprador intelligentsia sellouts who recently wrote an "open letter"

Post by pushkin » 13 Jun 2019, 08:19

Dear 100 AfricanTraitors,
Having read your mendacious "open letter" to our President, we were astounded at your sheer hypocrisy.

We are obliged to ask you some basic questions, since it appears that your knowledge of Eritrea, its people, its culture, its history and its glorious struggle is scant, to say the least.

Where were you during Eritrea's bitter 30-years long war of independence, when our just struggle against Ethiopia supported by the mighty of this world, first by the U.S. and later by the U.S.S.R., and against overwhelming odds, was in great need of solidarity and moral support from #Africa?

Where were you when successive Ethiopian regimes conducted a genocidal war on Eritrea in which over 100 thousand of Eritrean civilians were brutally massacred, thousands of Eritrean villages razed, women raped, children bayoneted, by the Ethiopian army of occupation, and over 100 thousand Eritreans fled their homeland to be refugees in the Sudan between 1961 and 1991?

No thanks to your support, Eritrea finally won its independence against all odds in 1991 and was immediately focused on nation-building and reconstruction of its war-torn economy. But where were you when the #TPLF minority regime of Ethiopia launched a second war of invasion and reconquest against Eritrea in 1998?

Where were you when same TPLF minority regime of Ethiopia led by Meles Zenawi conducted in 1998 to 2000 the cruel ethnic-cleansing of 80 thousand Eritreans—and Ethiopians who had Eritrean ancestry—who lived for decades and generations in Ethiopia, and had their properties looted and confiscated?

Where were you when the TPLF army of Ethiopia, at the height of its last phase of the war in May-June 2000, penetrating into the border areas of Eritrea, committed war crimes and crimes against humanity on the civilian Eritrean population, such as rape, wanton killing, destruction of historical sites, churches and mosques; desecration of sacred martyrs cemeteries; looting and plundering of civilian property, and destruction of economic infrastructure on a massive scale?

After the failure of its invasion of Eritrea (1998 - 2000), Ethiopia was obliged to sign the Algiers Peace Treaty with Eritrea. Subsequently, an arbitration court called the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission based at The Hague, having heard the arguments from both sides on their claims and counter-claims over the "border dispute", rendered its "final & binding" verdict and awarded Badme, the flashpoint of the conflict, to Eritrea on 13 April 2002. But Ethiopia, in violation of the peace agreement, refused to abide by this international court's ruling and continued to occupy sovereign Eritrean territories. Where were you then?

When Ethiopia invaded #Somalia in 2006, Eritrea was the only country which protested this aggression against a sovereign brotherly African nation. For its lone, just and principled stand, Eritrea was unjustly punished and illegally put under US-engineered #sanctions at #UN Security Council in December 2009, which continued up to November 2018, causing untold economic suffering and deprivation on the Eritrean people. Where were you then?

And now, after all this long suffering and great sacrifice, when Eritrea emerged victorious against all odds and won the peace, you have the temerity to come out of your hiding place of deafening silence to sermonize to Eritrea about justice and democracy and create some fracas against it!

You are, truly, a pathetic lot. You should be ashamed to participate in a #propaganda campaign of demonization against Eritrea, a truly independent country in Africa with good, dedicated, wise and corruption-free leadership.

But since you have no shame, we have only five words for you:

Hands Off Eritrea! Buzz Off!

Sincerely & With Dignity,

5 Million Eritrean Patriots

Well said, brother Pushkin! It is always correct to "Call a Spade a spade" but in this case "Call a monkey a monkey" with the understanding, it probably is a great disservice to the orangutan genesis, for frankly, they are much smarter than these white colonized mindset! Pathetic. :oops:

“African Voices”: political cherry picking at its worst!

Early this week, a motley network of African writers and journalist wrote an open letter to President Isaias Afwerki expressing concern on what they termed as “continued detention of Eritrean journalists and activists, migration of youth and …the isolation of Eritrea from the larger African family”.

To impart a semblance of “balance”, the writers also expressed their “most sincere congratulations to Eritrea” for “its normalization of diplomatic relations with Ethiopia”.

The timing and rather inappropriate medium of communication that they selected to convey their views to the Government of Eritrea provoke profound questions of purpose and intent. But we would rather focus, at this point in time, on the issues they have raised than wasting time second-guessing their underlying motives.

June is a very solemn month for all Eritreans in all walks of life. June 20th is Martyrs Day!

Due to the travesty of justice and flagrant breaches of international law at various junctures of their history, the people of Eritrea were compelled to pay enormous sacrifices in the past 60 years. The human toll has been staggering and unparalleled relative to the small size of Eritrea’s population. These figures say it all: 65,000 freedom fighters martyred in the three-decades long liberation war (1961-1991); more than 20,000 of Eritrea’s best sons and daughters lost their lives in the subsequent border war (1998-2000) as well as its sequel in the past two decades as Ethiopia pursued wanton policies of belligerence and “regime change”.

June is thus a month of somber reflection on the myriad injustices that were meted on Eritrea by a constellation of major powers and their local surrogates for over six decades. It is a month of commemoration for the high price paid and arduous trajectory blazed simply because Eritrea’s inalienable national rights were perceived as incompatible with, and had to be compromised on, the altar of “higher” geostrategic interests of major global powers.

In all these difficult decades, “voices of conscience” in the wider international community – and especially African voices; official or otherwise - were conspicuous for their absence and deafening silence. In the case of African voices, the apathy persisted even in the past 16 years when Ethiopia flagrantly flouted Africa’s sacrosanct principle of the sanctity of colonial boundaries and continued its occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories in contravention of the final and binding arbitral ruling of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission of 13 April 2002.

Peace has been achieved at long last now after Ethiopia belatedly accepted the EEBC decision and agreed to implement it fully. This is indeed the backdrop of the Joint Declaration of Peace and Friendship between Eritrea and Ethiopia signed in Asmara on July 9 last year.

Peace is extremely dear to Eritrea. Needless to emphasize, those who cherish peace most are those who have been affected most by its absence; by the attendant prevalence of war. This was acutely felt in Eritrea for the past six decades. Indeed, in the past 57 years from 1961 until 2018, the only time the country enjoyed durable peace to funnel its undivided attention and resources to nation building was the short, seven-year, interlude from 1991 until 1998; in the immediate aftermath of the historic victory of the liberation struggle.

Eritrea is now focused on consolidating the hard-won peace process underway. It is earnestly working to recoup lost time and opportunity to address critical issues of nation-building – in all its dimensions – with a redoubled sense of purpose and urgency. Formulation of appropriate policies, their prioritization and sequencing, as well as timelines of implementation are serous tasks that fall within the purview and prerogatives of the Government and people of Eritrea alone. Maintenance of the independence of its policies and ownership of its national developmental programmes are in fact cardinal principles that the GOE subscribes to strongly.

Despite attempts to isolate and muzzle Eritrea by certain powers, Eritrea has and currently enjoys the support of many, including Africans, at international forums. Eritrea has vast diplomatic ties and representations in virtually all continents. Suffice to mention a couple of recent examples: Eritrea’s election (167 states) to the UN Human Rights Council and its assumption of the Chairmanship of the Khartoum Process that deals with migration and human trafficking issues.

Eritrea is making modest contributions in these forums. More importantly, Eritrea is playing a widely acknowledged, active, and constructive role for regional peace, stability and economic integration.

The provision of education for all and health for all, achievement of food and water security in difficult circumstances of war and relentless belligerency, attest to the government’s commitment to improve the lives of its people. Eritrea’s commitment is evidenced by its achievement of all health-related UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Much needs to be done, and with the new found peace, no doubt Eritrea will fulfill the aspirations and dreams of her people, to develop their war-torn nation.

In as far as” migration of youth” is concerned, there is vast literature in the public domain on the dominant and politicized pull-factors that have spurred it in the first place. The granting of “automatic political asylum to all Eritreans” by certain European countries, with the UNHCR at the helm, was indeed designed to weaken Eritrea’s defense capabilities by “weaning its youth from the National Service”. Other domestic push factors pale in impact in terms of this externally-driven and politicized pull-factor.

The authors of the open letter also allude to “continued detention of journalist and other activists”. Here again, the painful events of sedition that transpired at a crucial time during the border war are well known, documented and available in the public domain. To feign ignorance of these facts is disingenuous or irresponsible.

The majority of the signatories have undoubtedly been influenced by the narratives on Eritrea produced over the last 20 years. None of them have firsthand knowledge of, or have ever visited, the country. When one skims through the list, there is not even a single individual who has penned one single article on the predicaments of Eritrea in all those decades when it faced enormous existential threats.

Another poignant fact that we must recall is the tendency of external powers to instrumentalize “African voices” to implement their policies of subversion. In the case of Eritrea, both the UNSC sanctions (2009/2011) and the UNHRC resolutions (2012) of harassment were adopted using African Trojan horses as “key sponsors”. One wonders whether a similar gimmick is on the offing in this case too. Particularly as some of the individuals in the list have murky associations with certain powers.

Be that as it may, Eritrea’s motto has been, “Come and See”. Eritrea is open to all those with genuine interest in understanding the country, its people and its leadership. Otherwise, Eritrea’s “rightful place in the family of African nations”, achieved and preserved through the blood, sweat and sacrifice of her children, remains intact.

"Africa will never be independent. Africans believe in Europeans, Americans and Chinese more than themselves--they don't trust themselves at all.
A white man will commit crime in Africa but no action will be taken because Africa authorities view us as semi-gods, far from the truth. A blackman can be abducted in Europe, get harrassed or even killed but no African authority will question. Africans present themselves as weak people with no hope especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans.

They are their own enemies. They hate each other and that gives their colonial masters power to continue exploiting African resources. "

African intellectuals intellect is not par with Africans interests.
They still are hoodwinked by their former colonizers and are becoming the mouthpieces of these same colonizers.
African countries need to stand up on their own feet and be self reliant.
And one nation which is doing so is the youngest African nation of Eritrea.
There is no country in the world which was done wrong in the world than Eritrea since the early 1950's.
When the colonizers were leaving Africa, all the African countries got handed their independence in a silver plate but Eritrea. Due to its geographic location the west particularly England and the USA objected that Eritrea be an independent nation like the rest of the African countries due to their interests.
In 1953 the then USA secretary of state John Dullas Foster at the UN said:
"In reality the Eritrean people should be given a choice on how to lead their country, but due to the interest of the USA we are uniting (federation) Eritrea with our ally Ethiopia". The rest is history. Great Britain was given the task to be the care taker of Eritrea for 10 years until supposedly the Eritrean people decide what to do, when in reality the 10 years was to try to divide Eritrea and give half of it to the Sudan and half of it to Ethiopia and was decided that it be United with Ethiopia against the wish our people.
So Sellassie (the then Ethiopian king) was told to slowly swallow Eritrea. And in 1960 Eritreans protested and decided that they need to fight and be independent nation but unlike the rest of the African countries which got handed their freedom in silver plates, but to fight through guerrilla fight which took 30 years and killed over 100 thousands of our fighters, destroyed churches, mosques, villages, cutting of Eritreans women beasts and stomachs and killing thousands of innocent children with cluster bombs and running over by ethiopians tanks.
Due to this evil west policy Eritrea after it got its independence stopped trusting the west and decided to stand on it's own. Refused to get aid, refused to borrow from IMF which is the tactic the west uses to subjugate or lead the African countries with remote control from washington.
And thus Eritrea's stand of going it alone didn't sit good with the west and they tried to kneel it down with different unfounded allegations. But Eritrea stood all these tones on bricks thrown at it and now all of them including the USA finally decided that if you can't beat Eritrea might as well join it and are now stretching their peaceful hands while at the same time using some faceless African intellectuals writing an open letter to the Eritrean president to join the African countries...the African countries which are still been played by the west that is.
Where the hell were these African intellectuals when Eritrea was refused to get its independence? Where were during Eritrea's 30 years brutal independence struggle?
Where were the humanitarian concern they are talking about when the ousted ethiopians regime expelled over 80 thousand Eritreans (some died of thirsty walking 1000 km), stealing millions of their properties because as it said because they didn't like the color of our eyes?
Where are they when the international court verdict decided that Ethiopia should leave our territory which up to date is still occupying,15 years and counting?
The USA actually calls Eritrea:
"A bad example of good things" for the fact that if it succeeded (which it will) it will be emulated by the rest of the African nations and the white man won't have a say on African countries matters.
Seeing is believing. So, rather than falling for the evil propaganda of the west (most of the time they use our own African so called intellectual to make it appear is legit).
I know that majority of the Africans praise Thomas Sankara.
Well the Eritrean president is the nowadays Sankara of Africa.
He said:
"aid cripples societies"
"He who feeds you controls you".
In the eyes of the west doing it yourself specially if one is African is a no no. You get punished if you do so.
So my African brothers and sisters wake up. All our countries should unite on fighting the evil game the west is playing us.
It is not a sin to use our own people be it with minimum wages to dig out from the holes we are in than to be dependent on the white man.
Propaganda war specially the west's is believable when one hears it repeatedly.
Eritrea is the only peaceful country in east Africa. Eritrea is the only African nation which fulfilled the UN MDG (millennium development goals).
Eritrea is the only African nation which is dept free.
But you don't hear this.
Again seeing is believing and go to Eritrea and witness it first hand.
Please, please stop believing all the lies of the west.
One being:
To weaken Eritrea the Obama presidency declared that any Eritrean who leaves the country will get free refugee status. So majority of the Africans were actually applying as Eritreans to gain the system and the west turn around and says that Eritrea's refugee numbers is the highest in the world. Dahhh.
It is like setting fire and screaming fire, fire in a cinema or church. I mean our youth won't take the risk to leave our country if no one tells them that there is a million dollar lottery winning ticket waiting for them if they leave our country.
That is human nature. And yes it is a fact that most of the refugees who applied as Eritreans are other African brothers and sisters to take the advantage of the offer.
So, the so called African intellectual are not intellectuals. They are puppets of the west who sadly are trying to hurt African brothers (country) due to personal greed.

It is like setting fire and screaming fire, fire in a cinema or church. I mean our youth won't take the risk to leave our country if no one tells them that there is a million dollar lottery winning ticket waiting for them if they leave our country.
That is human nature. And yes it is a fact that most of the refugees who applied as Eritreans are other African brothers and sisters to take the advantage of the offer.
So, the so called African intellectual are not intellectuals. They are puppets of the west who sadly are trying to hurt African brothers (country) due to personal greed.

Dear 100 AfricanTraitors,
Having read your mendacious "open letter" to our President, we were astounded at your sheer hypocrisy.

We are obliged to ask you some basic questions, since it appears that your knowledge of Eritrea, its people, its culture, its history and its glorious struggle is scant, to say the least.

Where were you during Eritrea's bitter 30-years long war of independence, when our just struggle against Ethiopia supported by the mighty of this world, first by the U.S. and later by the U.S.S.R., and against overwhelming odds, was in great need of solidarity and moral support from #Africa?

Where were you when successive Ethiopian regimes conducted a genocidal war on Eritrea in which over 100 thousand of Eritrean civilians were brutally massacred, thousands of Eritrean villages razed, women raped, children bayoneted, by the Ethiopian army of occupation, and over 100 thousand Eritreans fled their homeland to be refugees in the Sudan between 1961 and 1991?

No thanks to your support, Eritrea finally won its independence against all odds in 1991 and was immediately focused on nation-building and reconstruction of its war-torn economy. But where were you when the #TPLF minority regime of Ethiopia launched a second war of invasion and reconquest against Eritrea in 1998?

Where were you when same TPLF minority regime of Ethiopia led by Meles Zenawi conducted in 1998 to 2000 the cruel ethnic-cleansing of 80 thousand Eritreans—and Ethiopians who had Eritrean ancestry—who lived for decades and generations in Ethiopia, and had their properties looted and confiscated?

Where were you when the TPLF army of Ethiopia, at the height of its last phase of the war in May-June 2000, penetrating into the border areas of Eritrea, committed war crimes and crimes against humanity on the civilian Eritrean population, such as rape, wanton killing, destruction of historical sites, churches and mosques; desecration of sacred martyrs cemeteries; looting and plundering of civilian property, and destruction of economic infrastructure on a massive scale?

After the failure of its invasion of Eritrea (1998 - 2000), Ethiopia was obliged to sign the Algiers Peace Treaty with Eritrea. Subsequently, an arbitration court called the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission based at The Hague, having heard the arguments from both sides on their claims and counter-claims over the "border dispute", rendered its "final & binding" verdict and awarded Badme, the flashpoint of the conflict, to Eritrea on 13 April 2002. But Ethiopia, in violation of the peace agreement, refused to abide by this international court's ruling and continued to occupy sovereign Eritrean territories. Where were you then?

When Ethiopia invaded #Somalia in 2006, Eritrea was the only country which protested this aggression against a sovereign brotherly African nation. For its lone, just and principled stand, Eritrea was unjustly punished and illegally put under US-engineered #sanctions at #UN Security Council in December 2009, which continued up to November 2018, causing untold economic suffering and deprivation on the Eritrean people. Where were you then?

And now, after all this long suffering and great sacrifice, when Eritrea emerged victorious against all odds and won the peace, you have the temerity to come out of your hiding place of deafening silence to sermonize to Eritrea about justice and democracy and create some fracas against it!

You are, truly, a pathetic lot. You should be ashamed to participate in a #propaganda campaign of demonization against Eritrea, a truly independent country in Africa with good, dedicated, wise and corruption-free leadership.

But since you have no shame, we have only five words for you:

Hands Off Eritrea! Buzz Off!

Sincerely & With Dignity,

5 Million Eritrean Patriots

That is the truth. Very well articulated. Thanks !

Putin should be the president of the entire slave African continent, except the self reliant nation of Eritrea. Read the bottom report of president Putin's analysis of Africans and their leaders.
Eritrea is the only independent country in Africa.
As every one knows the rest of them (53 countries to be exact) got handed their independence in silver plates, when the colonizers left Africa and thus they still worship the white western man as god.
Eritrea got its indepence by its sheer power, fighting a 30 years brutal war loosing 100 of thousands of its sons and daughters and told the white western man:
"I am equal to you.
If you want to do business with me, in my own country's interests and affairs, it is in my terms" and for that it got punished for 2 decades by the same white western man and went through hell but stood its grounds resisting the white western man's pressure and in 2018 it made sure that the white western man comes back begging to do business in its terms, including the USA. It is like, if you can't beat it might as well join it.
The 30 years war and the 2 decades following its independence of trying to tie its hands behind it's back made Eritrea immune to miseries.

Its motto is:

"I rather live in misery than to depend on white western man or any body who has no real interest about my well beings"

"Aid cripples society and he who feeds you controls you"
and thus it is the only African nation which refused white western man's handouts which is attached to some evil strings attached to it.

"IMF loans are intended as vehicles to be ruled from Washington"
and thus it refused to get IMF loans and is the only African country which is dept free.

African brothers and sisters be calm and be like Eritrea.
Eritrea can't fight on behalf of 53 other countries.



President Putin on Africans.

"Africa will never be independent. Africans believe in Europeans, Americans and Chinese more than themselves--they don't trust themselves at all.
A white man will commit crime in Africa but no action will be taken because Africa authorities view us as semi-gods, far from the truth. A blackman can be abducted in Europe, get harrassed or even killed but no African authority will question. Africans present themselves as weak people with no hope especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans.
They are their own enemies. They hate each other and that gives their colonial masters power to continue exploiting African resources. "

Do you agree with President Putin ?

And yes I 100% agree with Putin and Eritrea been saying such since the 1950's.

Brother Cigar! I am so proud of you and other Eritreans For the unreserved efforts and contributions in facilitating the burial ceremony of the horn of Africa cancers, Weyanes and their goons. Lots of people believe that European powers colonization of Africa came to an end after African states gained independence. Lies that have been told, lies many believed. President Putin has proved thatthe majority of Africans are still colonized.

Eritrea " Center Of Gravity" His Excellence Gen. Shebhat Efrem.

Leaders and tourists don't really know what their country looks like till they visit Eritrea. If you vist Eritrea, it forces you to observe/interpret the peace, harmony, unity and resilience of the people and leadership. For those Politically Homeless who are stripped of this basic experience of unwritten rules of Eritrean society, is becoming a nightmare and make them act irrational and true slaves of disintegrating Wagane (TPLF).
