PFDJ Colonization and Its Land Grabbing Policy (In Tigrigna)

Eritrea nationalized land in 1994 under the proclamation of NO. 58/1994. This nationalizing policy of land has left Eritreans without any property that they can claim for. 30 years war against Ethiopian invasion was replaced by another home grown land grabber.

This policy is unfair and against the aspiration of the 30 years war who was truimphed by the popular participation of the farmers.

Farmers joined the armed struggle thinking that they will be free to plaugh their land and be the sole owners of their property.

Finally, the out come is a disaster.

As a liberal democrat, I am advocating for the land to return back to the owners without delay. And the government to assist any disputes that may occur during the transition period by introducing proper reconciliation and compensation strategies that will settle the disruption which have occured by this wrong policy.

Here is my extended Tigrigna version of my criticism to the Land Reform POliciy of 1994. and any other procalations related then after.

This was an audio record about my world outlook in the Eritrean political approach based on my philosophical dialects. In this discourse, I have mentioned four great philosophers – two unknown to the world great Eritrean philosophers, and two Indian great philosophers.

The metaphor I selected are

  1. How do you see things? Beyene Haile – Eritrean Philosopher, writer, painter, etc.
  2. Be like a white cloud – Osho – Great Indian Spiritual Philosopher
  3. One World – Amanuel Sahle – Great Eritrean thinker and writer
  4. “Small is Beautiful” – A quote from Mahatama Ghandi

I built my synthesis about Eritrean based on these four great thinkers conception of the world view to induce my liberal democratic approach of fighting for the Rights of every Eritrean citizen.

This audio record was recoreded on 15/02/2018 via live facebook. The objective is to try differentiating between Human Rights and Democracy while stressing the need for Rule of Law.

In the Eritrean political discourse, especially among theyouth, Human Rights and Democracy are not clearly differentiated. And often, democracy is considered as a RIGHT.

In my capacity, I tried to discuss these differences based on the current political discourses and what we need to know as Eritreans in order to have more consciousness about our struggle for freedom, dignity and democratic system of governance.

My Life

on January 24, 2014, I posted in my facebook page a diagram of under a title “My Life” as provided in the figure below. This diagram was an illustration of my thinking about my life and how I framed my life after years of search and contemplation in a more abstruct way of manifestation of my inner self.

The post has generated about 112 comments during my exchange with great thinkers that I know in person and via my facebook discussion. About 10 people engaged in the discussion which has enriched my thinking about my own life.

My life

After four years, in this early 2018, I revisted my post if there is any evolution or short comings. It is a still a refreshing reflection and what I had in my thinking has just gone deeper in each strata without changing the whole framework. I don’t know what will change in the near future but today what miight have changed is my knowledge and an approach of critical thinking. Otherwise, what I had looks in perfect order as it was before.

To share what was discussed, I am here reproducing what was written. It is one way of documenting my thinkings.

For those who are reading this, I hope you will see me more as you do right now. Enjoy it.

Discussion

Samson Maekele: Kemey zibelet CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK dea ela ezia. Beal Berhane Aradom Sertseyonas Negash Biyan Ghebreyesus and Tuemzghi axdikoma dyom?kkkkkkk

Tesfabirhan Redie: kkkkkkkkkkkk, Sami arkey, do I need approval of my life? hhhhahahahahahaha

Samson Maekele: kkkkkkkkkkk I guess one represents each one of your big components…..I hope you don’t want me to spell it…kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Tesfabirhan REDIE: How about if they can be combined to give the whole life?

Berhane Aradom: I would agree somehow!

Samson Maekele: That’s what I was talking about….u got one (probably the philosophical ) blessing now…kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Berhane Aradom: However, philosophy is the forefather of all things. I am wondering if he can provide a clear demarcation. That thing he called religion is byproduct of human failure. Shocking to read belief is his dome. I could infer that it is because of religion.

Samson Maekele: He has forgot the most important thing….HAPINESS/JOY at the top of the pyramid..kkkkkkkkkkkk

Berhane Aradom: Sam, I am talking about the skeleton, not the flesh part. In this pyramid, the flesh part, such as happiness, joy and others, have no place.I would love to put it otherwise.

Samson Maekele: I can see ur point

Tesfabirhan REDIE: I think happines is within my belief. If I trust, I love, what is more left to be showered by happiness?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Brhin, I tried to bring my phillosophy above my belief, I failed. But, it came above religion.

And in some years of my life I tried to remove bliefs and religion. But I found myself ……………….., you want me to say it? let me philosophize on my philosophy. kkkkkkkk

Berhane Aradom: Tesfie, repudiate all. gather courage..if religion or belief were important or meant for you, you would have born with them.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: I did Brhin and I formatted my self if really they were important to me. In fact, neither I searched my belief nor did I journeyed from one religion to another. My belief was there, Alpfa-Omega, but I got a chance to choose religion. And this makes my philosophy to be above my religion.

Berhane Aradom: you are enough. what else do you want?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Brhane, did I say I want something? All is within me. I am the existing Tesfie!

Berhane Aradom: yah, you wrote it. All these stuffs on the pyramid are not part of you…

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, Brhin, Master of masters!

Berhane Aradom: yekeniyelna, ab hagos yimeles.kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Selemawit Tesfamariam: Er there relatives with Abraham Maslovs pyramid?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Sister Selamawit, It is just my curiosity to put my life in a conceptual form, I don’t know Abraham Maslovs pyramid, but, if it happened to be similar, I may just be stunned of surprise. I believe on thinking coincidence. And this happened a lot in history. When two people put their ideas of more in a similar way. But, this is purely my life. I respect Intellectual property. No plagiarism!

Biyan Ghebreyesus: kkkkkkkkk if you frame with assumption said by socrates ‘I will never fear or avoid a possible good rather than a certain evil’.i do appreciate you so much……………kkkkkkkkkkkkk

Biyan Ghebreyesus: Berhan enqa metseahkha

Tesfabirhan REDIE: hawna Biyan, Just ideas came in last night, in fact, late night, around 00-01 AM, and I put it like what you can see.

Socrates’wisdom is all but unfortunately, I did not come across the one that you said to frame my life. It is just my life and my soul ordered, my spirit sent the message and my body wrote it. That is all! But, it is good that I came through two great figures of modern thinking, Socrates and Abraham. I am not different, I am a human being and is obvious to think like other human being. No exception with me.

Abiel Zereslasie: Wow Tesfie you need to support it with an article or something like that you know to make it edible! Though it is not as Selemawit said but the hierarchy starts with some similarity to Abraham Masllow’s hierarchy of need’s! And i need to understand if religion is not the product of philosophy as to your pyramid!

Tesfabirhan REDIE:  Sertse hawey, do you want to compartmentalize me? I am talking about the whole. And I see nothing is complex here, reading my whole life in a single page is such a degree that shows how my life is so simple. I could have finished pages and pages, may be you can read “The Republica” of Pulato. Though Pulato, the student of Socrates, tried to compile his teachers way of teaching, the dialogue, still people need to dig on to get what is in the book.

My natural science background helped to simplify into a simple model. That is all.

Unlike what hawna Abiel Zere tried to say it, I would rather like just to put it like this, though I appreciate his belief on me that I can do it.

Today, life should be able to be read in one page of a FB upon a click> evolution. I respect the technological evolution and its impact on shaping today’s and future generation.

Abiel Zereslasie: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk tesie jigna! If that’s so, let me know if there is any tesfe or abiel afterall!

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, I am sure about the existence of tesfie, but I am not sure about Abiel.

Misgina Zeray: Tesfie –  arkey, I am wondering where your conscience, consciousness and awareness would be as an individual? Awareness is an ocean of its own depth that lets us realize with the power of now and then. We live in now, we experience it and then it disappears to the usual cosmos. I like the way you try to posture “being you” . It is a very intensive and long journey but without awareness, it is just another thinking. When someone starts thinking, it is not more thinking if it stays longer as it becomes thinking of thinking.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Bro. Misgie, it is to no where. It is always there. And nothing more is about being aware than to join your body, spirit and your soul together. If you come according to Biblical approach, or the Christian doctrine, that is equivalent to trinity, and as it is said, human being is created by this unity.

If one is lost from the other, as Budha said it, suffering starts. To stop suffering we need to combine all this and all is in my life. hahahahahhahaahhahhaahahah

Misgina Zeray: nah nah Tesfie arkey! give me a minute will get over u!

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Welcome brother.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: ahahahahahhah good job!tesfie! but it feels smting very important is missing Misgates B Sunday has mentioned consciousness ,…and what is the difference between soul and spirit …also u didnt tell us how u play with pyramid and also u made ur life look fixed!…….and i have heard life is not in the lines, but between the lines and i couldnt see that! pls show me ahahahah

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, hawTuem, no lines in between and no fixed norms. It is just my life. All are in one, I don’t see any difference and as Samson, no scaling, just it the way my life works. All are in one. And concerning consciousness, it is clear along the level of importance on how the three parts are working. hahahhahahahahhahahahahaahhaha

By the way, awareness, consciousness and related are works of the mind and are in psychology which is in the social science stream, far from my philosophy.

Samson Maekele: I can see the pyramid is build through your engineering point of view…kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk Abraham Maslow built it through the pscho-social point of view. But they are more or less similar….For example: they both look like the Pyramid of , Egypt….kkkkkkkkk Well to come to the point yours is a little bit complicated. It has many lines probably they could be the scale measuring the degree or proportion of each component. ALoka endo hade kilo philosophy, frki kilo religion, etc. kkkkkkkkkkk

By the way, Tesfie you remind me a friend Henok Tsegazeab Tewolde I guess it was in 2007, he drafted a 5 year plan. I guess by now he made them happen.

Abdul Karim: Philosopher! What about the 3rd side and bottom side of this beautiful Prism……..

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Bro. Abdul Karim Khan Jadoon the owner of philosophy, always great and searching for wisdom. I did not see anyone saying on that side.

Adbul Karim: Is there no place for LOVE in it?? Y?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Not only a place, but whole I put is LOVE. But, just to make it clear, LOVE is within my beliefs and is the great source of my third dimension. if there is no LOVE, there is no WISDOM, because, wisdom is from HEART and a good heart is always conquered by LOVE and it pumps LOVE to all parts of my LIFE.

I remember your life expression still Bro. Abdul Karim Khan Jadoonyou told me while we had the tour in the ROCK Forest!

Abdul Karim: In Love i born, in lov i live , in love i Die….

Berhane Aradom: many have said many things. You may want to work now to the second edition.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: haw tesfie ferihnaka ahahahahhha nway if u r happy with the pyramid well and good , enjoy, but in case if u thinking of reconstruction i will be there to tell u a few jokes ahahahah! and regarding consciousness , i see it differently! to me its beyond psychology!

Tesfabirhan REDIE: hahahahahahahahhahahahahaha, is it because I talk about my life? That is why people do not talk about their life.

And welcome, I am ready always changing my life journey. Nothing is fixed. Go ahead. I want to update and upgrade my life. I believe on evolution of personal life.

Tuem and Brhin, give me some of enlightening jokes. Jokes are feed of the soul.

Abiel Zereslasie: Berhane Aradom i think you are trying to halt this interesting discussion, stop that and let crazy man collect as much comments as he can from this conversation! And tesfe am looking for a word from you on the case of religion! Isn’t religion a product of philosophy after all isn’t it a political organization. kkkkkkkkkkk

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk,

Abiel Zere, Religion is none of what you mentioned. Religion is result of politics. When you do not agree with one group or individual, you create your own group and regulations, and this is religion. It is like political parties, but her we have belief parties.

And belief could be because of fear, trust, love, hope or something related.

And for me, belief is LOVE. And take care, I am not saying I believe on LOVE, just belief = Love

Ermi Tuemuzghi: ahahahahh u called it my life and if u r fully convinced that that is ur life , i didnt want to touch it , perke to destroy it will be to destroy you! ahahahhaha nway now that we got the green light ..i will start surgery.

to start with ……if u can say my life ..u r not the life described .. u r the owner of the life ..if u can say my belief..u cant be the belief coz u r the owner of the belief ….to anything to say mine ,u have to be the possessor!…r we together so far?

Samson Maekele: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk I see the defence of the proposal…Tesfie I think u have proceeded from the proposal to actual thesis….but mind the minor suggestions..kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Yes we are Tuem, go ahead.

kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, Samson yah, that is a simple journey to start anything. I am not to defence here. Just to listen.

All you are talking is to my shadow, and what I put is my shadow. and i put it is my wisdom. All this is given in the triangle.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: to me belief is a believed idea on something that we dont know? can also expressed as to believe the non-existent as existing ….u see the sun..thus u know its there, that is to say u dont believe that there is a sun,coz that is ur experience , but in beleive , its not ur experience but others have told you their experinece/whatsoever and u beleived it as existent ….green or red

Tesfabirhan REDIE: yes I got you. Tuem.

To be clear I mentioned in my statement, when I say belief, belief = LOVE.

and in fact in the Bible it is written as GOD is LOVE. Lets not stick to the predefined perception. I am free like a white cloud 9Osho used to say),

For me, I was born free, Babtised as an Orthodox, grew-up in an Ortodox family, got educated during my early days in the catholic church, and conquered my blood veins, Then I tried to be more Orthodox, but got conflict with the doctrine I got during my childhood, then, I washed them with spiritual philosophy and remained detached from all, and then after I joined the catholic community.

I am a catholic by religion, a free thinker in my ways, and have a strong belief on LOVE. And according to the bible, God is nothing but LOVE. And on this LOVE, I trust, I got the truth and I put hope on all my life.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: have u ever experienced Love?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, what kind of love do you want to tell you from my all experience?

Ermi Tuemuzghi: ahahahahah tesfie ..am talking to you …we r not speaking about bile or religion , we will come to it later .

there is only one Love to me ….and to u?….and do u know Love or u believe in love ?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: This is tesfie whom you are talking about, kkkkkkkkkkkkk and is talkig you. But you are getting the shadow, not him. Even what I write is the shadow of Tesfie.

hahahhahahahahahahahha

Ermi Tuemuzghi: to me everything ur belief,religion, philosophy…….is a shadow only u ,who is the owner of all this is real….that its also me!.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: kkekekekkekekekekekke, This all are tools to the know-how. I came naked and I will leave naked. But do not ask me where to go. I am no where to go as I came from no where.

Tesfie is speaking through me, in fact, the name Tesfie does not exist. It is just a name. But the one, whom you are saying Tesfie and I say I am tesfie is there. If you want to visit him, first visit yourself. kekekkekekekkekkekekekkek

Ermi Tuemuzghi: ur belief will tell u where to go,dont worry! …we r one as long as owner is concerned , but our shadows are different ahhahah

Tesfabirhan REDIE: you got the point. we are one, just our shadows differ.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: well tes! it seemed to me we had a good start lol in disecting all, to make our mirrors clean so that we can reflect each other …but now we have jumped in to the conclusion ahahahha

Tesfabirhan REDIE: and as far as my belief where to go, kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, Is there any direction for LOVE?, I think LOVE is a scalar quantity, not a vector.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: have a good time and thanks for sharing ur experience …i will try to touch all the points we havnt tpuched so far

belief is an idea, if u think love is a belief , u mean love is an idea ….

Tesfabirhan REDIE:   great and waiting your further bisection. Always great Tuem. Have a nice dream.

hahahahhahahahahaha. you are saying it, I did not say. It is the common definition that you have probabily set in your mind is pre-occupied. Empty your self and come to me.

Das Hawya: Brother I believe trying to put ur life in such manner could be such a hectic job ..and may even lose the taste of what you want to describe ( with all due respect).. Life is a little bit complicated and as far as I am concerned more shaped with the interaction you do with people and your environment. So I don’t see here your life being shaped or evolving with any thing related to family ,friendship,Love (of different kind) ,sex,failure….. I May be totally out of the topic ,but normally philosophy just explain to us what we are passing through in a words and sentences we can really understand easily but nothing more ..its the trials ,the failures,the victories ,the tears and joys that we pass through that shape our life and makes us who we are now.I believe Tes(you) is a product of all the ups and downs he passed through in life not the product of the books not solely he read …. I like what you did here but it doesn’t seem like a life of a person but some science project ( with all due respect and I can be little bit rude on my words 🙂 )

Tesfabirhan REDIE:  Das Hawya thank you for your kind compliments. No worries, and in fact your points made me to come across again.

But, I call all the ups and downs in life as LIFE journey. If you say Tes is the product of this experiences of life journey, then, I am already done. But I am not done!

And all you mentioned is in my life in which I am walking about and I am walking along. I am not the product of this, but I am evolving with them. In chemistry, a product that you get at the end. But, still I am. Only your statement will have a full meaning when my physical body passes away and people say TES was this and that.

With all due respect and thank you.

Berhane Aradom:  I am wondering if you can consider all the comments. In my opinion, discard them irrespective of their importance and continue to live individually. I know deep down, no one has ever met you. You are alone.

Das Hawya: Good point Tes ..I gat what u mean. Berhane Aradomcant he listen and then take ideas he feels are worth taking and avoid the others ? I think two heads are better than one and also its not about how he should live that we are talking..its how he prepared the charts to show Life.so its pure the idea of life and not specific about his life that we are talking ..Aymeslekan Brhin ?

Tesfabirhan REDIE: in some of your comments, u said life is tbe interaction between people and environ people and environment i think both are part of the sciences, if we consider them like unpublished books.

And regarding philosophy, I am not talking on the written or the inherited ones. These are now as social sciences. Rather I am talking on my own philosophy, the philosophy that helps me to open my journey, that I search and watch Tesfie.

Brhin, I hope I will come up with second edition of an edited version, not with second edition of my life. But, I will edit the one that I have put, but, for second edition of my life, where it may add or delete some may or may not be available.

We will all see how Tesfie will evolve. And, if it happened to be end, hope you will publish the life of Tesfie as is available in my shadow.

Samson, it is great that you mentioned Dr. Fessehaye. Hope you guys to write something about him. He was such a great person that his students should put him still alive. I did not gget a chance to see him physically, but I have many good image on his image that was told by his students. I call then Samson, Brhin, Gashu, Teame and many more to cooperate and write something, even a page each about him.

Samson Maekele: Tesfie..I like the conversation with Das Hawya. You reminded me one point that I discussed it in 2000 with Dr. Fesseha Haile. WHAT IS LIFE? Tesfie bro..it is not easy to explain life in a sense of chemical reaction as a fixed byproduct of things. I guess the product of chemical reaction can be get at the final and is final as you said, but life is always in motion (physics kemey..?????????kkkkk). Then finally your byproduct will come at the cemetery and afterwords (LIKE MANDELA….may be our kids will see an Oscar winner film..THE GREAT TESFIE….aresti kemey. ksab hiji aytetahzetin ala). N Lidia Lydia Hagos entehatetkaya wun xubuk byproduct kitnegreka eya..kkkkkLet me come to my point…..first what is life for you all guys? Then take some from Tesfie framework …..nkulu ziakil eyu serihu zelo mesleni…nihade zibelkayo eyu negeru…kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Tesfabirhan REDIE: What a beaufiful mor.ing is this. Samson Maekele it is so blessed morning to uplift my way. Today I have a field visit in wine factories, but your words are more than that. Welela weyni zitiem kalatkum.

Hope I will see Lydia here. She is such a beautiful lady to chat with.

Berhane Aradom: Tesfie, has to take day off, and sit for a while on the river banks. He is neither this nor that.

Tesfabirhan Aradom: When you live, living is loike an AC, alternative current, not a DC. Even this starts when the sperm starts the journey to reach the egg. And after the journey follows the same way. And this is the Ups and downs.

Oprah said all she went through her life is with ups and downs, but, she considers them as lessons. Sorry if said it differently.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Brhin, I love you. Your call to Tesfie and stay as HE. Brhin has to be awarded with 10 years old bottle of French Red Wine and an Italian formagio, Parmagiano Reggano and an italian HAM Prosciutto.

Tesfie may go to silence, but I am calling him to say after serving him some Budhist meditiation music.

Ermi Tuemuzghi: bye tesfie! brhin may i join you for the wine!lol

Tesfabirhan REDIE: hhhhhhhhhhhh, I have for you too Tuem, cheese from the Alps Mountain. And wine, from Italy, Milano

Ermi Tuemuzghi: now we r speaking real business lol

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Afare zeybilu jjust for Love

Lydia Hagos: esfabirhan %$#@!, I could not read all the comments, but I did not need to, your ONE WORLD PYRAMID!!, said it ALL!!, we told you to stay away from Brew… You said, “THE ONE & ONLY ONE THAT I BELIEVE IN!” then you called him “Brhin Master of Master!” Lord help us!. You are worshiping him and his Philosophy, and you don’t even know it!!! All you pyramid, talks about is I, My, Me,. Where is Jesus in All this??? We need to help our brother, guys, meeting without Brew needed urgently!!! THIS IS CRAZY lol!!!!

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Kkkkkkkkk Lidu shikor, I think Jesus according to Catholics is God. Then do you want me to mention His name? Open your eyes please. Lolllllll

Hahhhhhh, does saying Master of masters will make me a worshiper? Come on lLidu, come to this world. We need you. Watch please what you are writing. Yes Brhin is Master of masters. Do not reject, the more you reject, the more you will be suffering.
That is what I said to Brhin, not you and I did not asked you to approve it and give it a certificate. Only Brhin knows who exactly he is, but, to say, I have the right. Just consider as I said to Lidu shikor. Kkkkkkkkk,

And for the pyramid, you are really now mess with such shapes. I pray for you to come unto you and stop having such illuaioned mind.

Sorry if I am so direct. Lidu shikor = Brhin master of masters. Just it differs on how you perceive it.

Lydia Hagos: Tes, Luke 9:26 “For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.”

Matthew 10:33 “But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.”

Do Not Allow Yourselves To Be Caught Off Guard
Children of My Divine Heart,

Hear Me. I Am. I Am the Alpha and the Omega. I Am the Great I Am. Open your hearts. Do not delay. I desire to abide in you. Open your hearts to Me. Surrender. Give Me permission to transform you into instruments most pure. Abandon the ways of the world. Do not be duped. Satan has plans to destroy you. Do not allow yourselves to be caught off guard. Pray for discernment. Pray each day. Be faithful to this mandate. Be generous with your prayers. Bless others in this fashion. Do not fear events foretold for I will protect My own. I will provide all things for you. I will send manna from the sky, and feed you as I did your ancestors. Trust in Me. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Refuse the mark of the Beast. Do not give in to fear. Walk in faith. You must grow in faith, and prepare for what is to come. Keep My commandments, and love as never before. I count on you. I love you with an everlasting love. My blessing is yours to use. Bless others through it.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Reallt now you are lost Lidu. Brhin is not in my pyramid. I can see how are reading the Bible and the wolrd now.

Lydia Hagos: Tes, What i believe and what i am, reflects the teaching of the Bible, it becomes my nourishment, it becomes who I really am. So what you say, and believe is part of your pyramid that is who you claim to be. You are coming to my point, you don’t need this Pyramid, and you are a child of God, the true living God, what more can you ask for other than Jesus and His Holly words, the Bible. Can we agree to that, let me get Amen!!!

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Kkkkkkkk, Amen!

Das Hawya:  Tesfabirhan eza mehazakum Lydia Hagos bhaki zerebia equa kurub kbd eluni (axikuni lol) gn eti brta’ean ab etiamno neger zelewa authoritative akaydan bah keyebeleni ayterefen .. Ezi tk btk azerarbakis tefetiyuni …kemaki hasaben zgelxa dekenestyo ahwat yebzhalna !

Tesfabirhan REDIE: You said it Das Hawya arkey. She is so bold in her approach, but, we accept her as she is. Alema beynu eyu, gena mewedaeta eyu kitibil, negative trha kitdeli tsehay kiarba eyu enber eti hakis kab haku ayhalifin eyu.

But still we well come her always and her rigid directional approach helps us to broaden our level of understanding for the diversity we have

Samson Maekele: Lydia Hagos I like your ideas. I can see the defence is tight now. However, we need a conceptual framework even to worship God. And no worry, God is always the master of masters even for Brhin….though some elements like religion and pastors/popes should be …….

Berhane Aradom: Lydu is hypnotizing the poor fellow tesfie. The word God is not God…I suspect that she is acting out of conditioned childhood lessons. One way or the other way, the whole world’s population is hypnotized by wrong teachings. The church is build up on the lowercase god. God is still out of human experience for man is crunching kolotutuko terefmeref. Man at this stage especially those pastors are simply modified form of rodents.

Tesfabirhan REDIE: Kkkkkkk, haki Brhin arkey. People like Lidu tried and r still to hyponize the poor Tesfie. Luckily He is far from such, do not worry.

Berhane Aradom: Very good Tesfie, but i want to undo lydia

Tesfabirhan Redie:  Better to format, now she is already formated, just you need window 2035. lol

Das Hawya: Samson Maekele U said we need a conceptual frame work to worship God ?..but u know religion is based on faith on faith of things that u never seen and understanding of things that could not be proved with our calculations.Thats the base almost all faiths/religions are made and the frame work for u will be just believe..just believe. Some people say prove to me God exists ..but they forget that they cant also proove God doesnt exist.what I want to say is I read some one also kind of critisizing pastors ..i dont think thats a good idea buddy.. U belive in what ever u belive but accept that others can also belive in other stuff and respect.I am sorry i drifted away from the topic Tes brought scuza !

Tesfabirhan Redie: Bro. Das believe is above everything and as in my life. 

And regarding critism, it is a thought provoking. Just take it easy and if serious go ahead, we can discuss. All here love to bissect things and see something within it. Be easy here, you will see diversified ideas and this is tbe beauty we have. Hope you will be with such colored lovely people and learn through tolerance and open discussion.

Wed Hmrarib: what paradoxial illustration is this ? wisdom to be though by science when is this come from ,hmmmm, and ur irrational faith teachs u trust ,love and TRUTH,HAHAAH,U FRAMED UR LIFE IN VERY DOCTRINATED THINGS , I AM SO AMUZING AT WHAT U WANA TO SAY BUT FOR SURE THIS IS THE OUT COME OF THE INTERNAL MIND CHATTERING !!! TRY TO ADRESS UR MIND AND BE SILENT IN ALL UR WAYS !!! BE FREE FROM ALL DOCTRINES AND LEAD UR FREE LIFE , AND U WERE SAYING I LOVE OSHO ,HAHAHAHAHAH STAY WITH UR INTERNAL TURMOIL!!!go and see the lectures of pro, lawrence krauss to know what secince teaches about reality and truth !!!

 

Samson Maekele: Das Hawya, from your comments towards me, I got two things. 1. Conceptual framework to worship God. But I don’t got your point bc I have both the question and answer in you statement. 2 Criticizing pastors…it is not out of my disrespect to pastors but it is because of their nonsense actions…I am going to wait your comment on this video,,,https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=588088154615298…

ክፉት ዘተ ኣብ ጉዕዞ Bright Future Eritrea

This is an open reflection and dialogue on a political movement called “Bright Future Eritrea”. This movement was established in Switzerland as a civic organization under Article 60 of the Swiss Civil Code under a name “Eritrean unit for a change in Valais – TEUs”.   It is currently operating all over the world by opening through its members in different countries.

As a means of organizing its members, it has produced a manifesto called “ማንፌስቶ፡ ምንቅስቃስ ንብሩህ መጻኢ ኤርትራውያን!” The manifesto is produced only in Tigrigna language so far. This manifesto claims that EPLF (Eritrean People’s Liberation Front) is the only and only political organization that has messed Eritrea and Eritreans since 1970 untill now.

This movement is widely known for its famous brand labeling “EPLF is a Bandit” ህግሓኤ ሽፍታ እዩ። Though EPLF has changed its name to PFDJ in 1994, Bright Future claims that EPLF = PFDJ and to use PFDJ is meanignless. I do not understand why they prefer to use a name of an organization that does not exist. However, they claim that EPLF and PFDJ are ideologically the same and if we use EPLF as a name it includes every evil work committed since 1970 by this same existing organization but different but ideologically the same regime in Asmara.

Bright Future has a advocacy against EPLF/PFDJ is extremely effecctive. I do have lots of respect for the fearless campaign. There are three areas where I differ with them. These are

  1. Their relaxed and unclear stance on Eritrean Sovereignity.
  2. Historical Dialectism Approach.
  3. Human Rights Isse.

For more, I did much deeper conversation with one member of the movement and can be found by clicking this link.

As a continuation of my reflections on this movement, I did a live facebook public dialogue on 11/02/2018. In this presentation, I claimed that Bright Future Eritrea is living in the past and to use EPLF is misleading and nonesense. And I called to update their manifesto.

This four hour discussion has covered a specific portion of their claim. I hope it will give a general view of the movement.

PFDJ and A South African Political Party: Bizarre Diplomatic Relationship

Whenever one mentions South Africa, “the Apartheid system” and “Nelson Mandela” are a universal flash to everyone. The first being a racial taboo imposed by the whites and the later a man who fought to end the system.

nelson-mandelaThese two extremes converged at one once the Apartheid system was abolished and Mandela triumphed after his long quest to complete South African emancipation.  Since then, South Africa became the hub of tolerance and human dignity.

I am not here today to talk about South Africa or the system that had ruined the rights of SOuth Africans but about silent and wierd relationship a South African Diplomat and a Communist Party of South Africa have with one of the extremely totalitarian regime in Africa, the PFDJ Regime of Eritrea.

South Africa opened its embassy in Eritrea in the year of 2004. Prior to that, there was no noticeable diplomatic relationships and I rarely read news about South Africa in the Eritrean news outlets.

However, with the assignment of new ambassador(2012), South Africa started to surface on major political, cultural and business news activities via Eritrean and some South African news outlets. But I was not aware who was behind these new movements until I came to know an Ambassador named Iqbal Jhazbhay.

The first time Ambassador  Iqbal Jhazbhay came to my attention was when he participated in Bologna Festival held in July 2014 by PFDJ on the occassion of 40th anniversary of one of EPLF’s historical festival during the armed struggle. He was the only foreign diplomat who participated in the festival and delivered a speech. 

Another event that forced me to pay a closer look was on October 30, 2014, when Asmara hosted first of its kind festival organized in collaboration with the office of the South African Embassy and PFDJ regime. The festival which is held on the occasion to mark 10th anniversary of Eritrean-South African ties is nothing but a political exhaustion. According to the report, Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay explained to the participants the festival will enhance the political, economic, cultural, as well as diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay : Who is he?

Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay was a South African Ambassador to Eritrea from 2012 to 2016. As an Ambassador, he had a mission to accomplish in line to the interest of South Africa in Eritrea. However, his diplomatic mission had a nature of secretive and unusual merge between business and political interests.

Inspite of some public funfares and mass media appearances, neither the people nor the country represented had any transparent and known diplomatic relationships. From what I tried to follow, it wast purely business oriented, exploitative and camouflaged friendship that aimed at extracting the natural resources of Eritrea via PFDJ and South African mining companies and active duties in the political affairs of Eritrea including in the participation of diaspora festivals and meetings organized by PFDJ. In addition, Professor Iqbal’s appeared to have a strong interest in the geo-politics of the horn of Africa, especially Somalia.

In many occasions, he appeared to represent Eritrea in diplomatic missions. Usually accompanied by Ambassador Tesfamichale Gerahtu, there could be some link between these diplomats that dates back to early 2000.

But, who is Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay and why he accompanied PFDJ officials in some important foreign meetings? Why Ambassador Tesfamichael Gerahtu had strong relationship with him?

Ambassador Tesfamichael Gerahtu’s relationship between these two ambassadors rooted back to early 2000s when the Eritrean Ambassador known for his antagonistic approach was there to dismantle the Eritrean student movement in South Africa? According to the news report, an official diplomatic relationship was launched in 2004, three years after the university student movements.

To look into the bibliography of  Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay, in his linkdin profile, the following information is written.

24899823_1764953673577974_4600114751483340804_n“Iqbal Jhazbhay is South Africa’s Ambassador to the State of Eritrea. Formerly Professor at the University of South Africa and the previous Director of the Unisa Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies. He holds a PhD in International Relations from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa and, studied Arabic and Islamic sciences in Cairo, Riyadh, Manchester and Johannesburg. 

His research interests include Islam in Somaliland and Somalia, South African Islam, Sufism, Political Islam, South African foreign policy towards North Africa and the Middle East, international relations and Islam. 

He was a visiting scholar at Princeton University’s Department of Near Eastern Studies and London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies.

He has authored the book, ”Somaliland: An African struggle for nationhood and international recognition”, some twenty-two academic articles and chapters on Islamic thought, Somaliland and South African foreign policy.

He is a member of the board of directors of the Institute for Global Dialogue –an International Relations think-tank established by former President Nelson Mandela. Serves on the ANC’s NEC Sub-Committee of International Relations, its newly-formed International Relations Rapid Response Task Team and chaired the ANC’s Sudan Task Team. He previously served on the ANC’s Commission for Religious Affairs. He was elected as Rapporteur of the ANC’s International Solidarity Conference (2012).”

Well, here we get some traces of this good Ambassador to be a good fortune for PFDJ cover-up. The professor known for his academic studies related with Somalia and PFDJ’s link and involvement in the Somalia’s affairs, no one can be worth enough to be a firsthand good friend for an evil diplomatic relationships.

Of course, there are some South African companies which are operating in mining activities. And from far, the diplomatic relationships can be somehow bizarre to an observer from far and can be taken for granted. But the truth might be different especially by looking into the biography of the Ambassador and the ruling Junta. Ambassador Tesfamichael is good in this kind of diplomatic friendships and indeed his mission to South Africa is still on ground.

In an interview done with Somaliland Times on January 16, 2004, the website has also recorded Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay’s background as, “A  director of Johannesburg-based Institute of Global Dialogue and is also convener of the Middle East study group at the South African Institute of International Affairs.” This shows that the professor’s presence in Eritrea is beyond his official diplomatic mission.

Eritrea has a sanction imposed by UN in relation to its link with Al-Shabab and other forces that override the peace of the horn of Africa. I do not have any information whether South Africa involves in Somalia or in other horn African countries, but the presence of this ambassador in Eritrea is something that has to be investigated further.

What the Communist Party of South Africa is doing in Eritrea?

24796408_1764953756911299_1553188230577861979_n

I thought South Africa is a liberal democratic country with political parties who favor human rights. After experiencing a system of extreme racial discrimination, it is hard to imagine anyone from South Africa ignores what a dictatorial state is. Unfortunately, one of the oldest political party from South Africa is seeking alliance with one of the most brutal regime Africa has ever faced after the end of cold war.

Communist Party of South Africa was founded in 1921. For its role in the struggle against aparthaid, it was banned as a legal political party in South Africa but has played a role in the termination of Aparthaid system by allying itself with other political forces, called the Triparthite Allaince. Nevertheless, it managed to strive throughout the Aparthaid period and some of its leading members were part of the post-aparthaid government. And the party was abandoning its socialism concept and came to conclude that that Stalinism had failed. As a party it continued to exist by sharing power with African National Congress and Congress of South African Trade Unions.

Though its political influence is insignificant, the intention to expand its alliance with the Eritrean totalitarian regimes is a sign of the revival of its old political ideology. Such kind of alliance unique and it deserves full scrunity. The visit was accompanied by Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay and three other SACP members.

With the coming of Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay there was a semi-transparent relationship between SACP and its alliance with the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice(PFDJ) as it was highlighted above. What makes this relationship unique is that eventhough Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay was an ambassador who represented South Africa, what he did and still continuing to do is too strengthen the relationship at a party level.

It might seem a conspiracy theory but with the on-going geopolitical development of the horn of Africa in general and Somalia in particular, SACP and PFDJ could have a share in the affairs of Somalia. But this may seem too far. Of course, with the declining power of PFDJ, to get such kind of party to party relationship has an advantage, especially to PFDJ. As a consequence, it might have an impact on the political landscape of Eritrea. Not only this,  it may also strength PFDJ’s dirty role in Ethiopian internal politics via the Somali region and in the making of Somaliland.

Observing this kind of diplomatic relationship, as an Eritrean, Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay and SACP’s alliance I can imagine its awful impact. I am saying this based on South Africa experience during the high time of oppression. Any party or organization that moves to create alliance with PFDJ can be considered either as unconsciousness about Eritrea situation or does not care about the human rights situation of citizens. And when such move comes from South African political party, it gives an alert how fast history can be forgotten.

Of course Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay will continue his dirty business, both in Eritrea and in Somalia. But, as a people and those who are fighting for our rights to be respected, any kind of alliance with the oppressor leverages to suspend our suffering. On this occasion, I call Professor Iqbal Jhazbhay and South Africa Communist Party to distance from PFDJ. Otherwise, it is against what South Africans, including SACP, fought for and against humanity. Therefore, I call them to refrain. Not only to refrain, but to help Eritrean people to fight against injustice that has been continuing since 1991.
