    Poor Germans, they accepted more than a million Muslim Arab refugees, including Afghans, Pakistanis … in less than a year and this is how the repay them back? The Jihadi Muslims had done these atrocious terrorist acts in France and many Christian nations, including recently to the peaceful Egyptian Coptic Christians inside their churches.
    I was surprised Assenna did not post the video of the recently released enslaved Christian Eritrean women from the bloody hands of the Muslim Jihadis of Libya. and the massacre o the Egyptian Christians.

    Dear Assenna webmaster,
    It will more enlightening for the Assenna family members and its visitors to have two different columns, one for the current affairs or updating news and another specifically for articles. The column for the articles will encourage the Assenna family members to continue discussing and inputting their views as well as it allows the visitors to keep visiting to read those views and join the ongoing discussions. Thanks the Assenna team for the wonderfully ending year informing and allowing the Assenna family members and its visitors to catch up with what is going on in Eritrea and the world. .

      Teclay,
      Don’t you know the difference between terror and ሰውራ. The English word for ሰውራ is revolution. The Eritrean revolution, as old as it is, is considered to be the mother of all African revolutions. Don’t also forget, the early Eritrean political parties of 1940s make Eritreans the first Africans who were politically conscious and able to be part of a democratic process during colonization and after independence. But all these good name and history of Eritrea and Eritreans got killed at the hands of the tyrant Isaias. Therefore, if there is any accusation against the Eritreans and their revolution, it should be directed at the tyrant Isaias.

      Sahle responding to Teklay reminds me a fiction by the Great Novelist Gabriel Garcia about a retired brutal military General who was sending messages to himself through post office.

    Teclay dumu
    Hangolka netia ala. U are not eritrean, so do not worry about us. U are manifesting all sighns of serious mental breajdown and i will break it fast for u. We have very proud history be it shaebia or jebha or else minus higdef and firki agame hawka iseyas. First accept the fact that oromos are ethiopians and are predominantly moslem. Understand what that means. What that means is that u have to leave with them. Second amharas are mostly christians but ur deadly enemy b/s u and ur weyane made them enemy. Just like higdef that pushed us to be its enemy. Libkum titewawe ember nifeltekum ena. Ab ertra bejeka higdef xelae yeblnan. Bdege dma bejeka weyane xelae yeblnan. Shenka dekis hiji rieska xerowrew endabeleka.

    Very soon u will be pushed out of tigray by amhara and oromo. U will be like filistem, stateless.

    Teclay zeyhafer dimmu delay fithi iye bele iti shimu .
    Andom identified precisely Eritrean internal and external enemies .as it is you like it or not .
    Your kind of mentality sowed the seed of religious and ethnic tensions that brought catastrophic consequences in Ethiopian society which in fact was your dream to happen inside Eritrea . And it is not late if you can learn to
    respect others desire to live in peace and harmony at their ancestors land .
    If Eritreans , Amhara , Oromo , Muslims , Arabs ………… are your enemy there is nobody left to call a friend or ally .
