National language issue in Tripoli

As Tripoli children run after him
calling him “ Abed! Abed!”
the Eritrean kid wondered
if making Arabic our mother tongue
would have made all the difference.

1. yg responds back:
The “strategic alliance” mentality
When I am using the phrase, “strategic alliance”, it is not the regional forces’ strategies that I have primarily in my mind. Rather, it is the internal alliances made by Liberation Fronts and population groups WITHIN the nation to build Eritrea that I have in mind. But now, when I observe the reactions of the likes of you, I see also “strategic alliance” as a state of mind at work.

2. Let me first define what strategic alliance is through example:The Soviet Union and the West once made a strategic alliance (in fact, they called themselves, The Allies) to defeat a common enemy, Nazi Germany. But that doesn’t mean that England and France, let alone the Soviet Union and the US could create one nation based on that alliance. A proof to that: the Soviet Union and the West were at each others’ throat as soon the common enemy was defeated; aside from a common enemy,

3. ...there were no visions that would tie them together even in loser alliances (such as the EU), let alone to merge into one nation. The Eritrean case might look different, but not by that much.So far as they had a common enemy, the disparate groups in Eritrea fought together. But if all along, these groups had conflicting visions of where Eritrea should be heading, “fighting together” would never translate into “living together”. The problem arises when whatever visions...

4. .. they had put on hold while they were fighting had to be translated on the ground after winning the war. I will deal with this phenomenon on another comment. Now, let me focus on “strategic alliance” as a state of mind only. Let me start with your kind, Truth Keeper, as you have made no qualms in telling us you are a true follower of the Isaias regime. If you would do me a favor and venture into Dehai, you will see that not a single teardrop is being shed for all the hundreds

5. ..(if not thousands) Eritrean ladies raped in Egypt and Libya. Now, you cannot say that it is because these women are not of their own kind that they are indifferent to their plight. Despicable as that act would be, we would at least get some rational explanation to the puzzle. But that is not the case, the fact being that probably all of the raped Eritrean ladies are from Tigrigna stock, a description that would match exactly with those congregating in Dehai.

6 so what makes these people not utter a single word of condemnation to either Libya or Egypt when their own sisters and daughters are being raped by Arabs?What explains for their total lack of outrage?The answer is rather obvious: they would rather see all the Eritrean ladies that pass through the Arab land being raped by Arabs rather than jeopardize Eritrea’s relationship with Arabs that they think is vital in its stance against Ethiopia, hence according to them in its survival as a nation

7.Of course, for direction,these foot soldiers are closely following the reactions of the Shaebia regime in Asmara, a government that would not dare register a single protest to Egypt or Libya about the atrocities committed against its own nationals. To the contrary, it fully condones it, believing that in the end it would help it stem the mass exodus. So when Highdefites respond to the call of “strategic alliance” from Asmara, it is with the “noble” cause of “saving Eritrea” in their minds.

8. But look, Truth Keeper, how utterly despicable and revolting this mission of yours has turned to be. If, among other things, it requires a few thousand of Eritrean girls to be raped by the Arabs to stem the mass exodus and sustain your “noble Eritrea”, then you would have no second thoughts about it.That explains why websites like Dehai get eerily quiet whenever mass atrocities against their own people are committed inside or outside Eritrea.
