Ali Addeh refugee camp, Djibouti (CNN)Henol and Mebratu emerge from their current home, a modest structure with plastic sheeting serving as its roof, carrying the “master folder.”

One of the most important documents on the camp, it’s a record of each Eritrean’s name and their case — whether they’ve been granted refugee status, whether they’ve had their resettlement interview, whether they’ve attempted the journey to Europe by sea, and whether they’ve survived it.

    Long years ago it was an honour to come or hail from the region or to have the ancestral background of the land called Banhrenegash, Mereb Milash, Hamassien or Bogos, mostly known as now as Eritrea. This land was a land of proud people much civilized and cultured than the unruly savage desert people across the Red Sea coast in the Arabian Penensula who are still killing, beheading and bombing each other, even inside their own places of worship in the name of religion.

    So, what has become to the people of Bahrenegash or Eritrea now? I will leave Temahlel answer it for me from his one of his comments posted in this site:

    “Temahlel on April 22, 2015 at 9:02 pm said:

    Eritrea has become the most worthless place to live in less than two decades. It is a place where jails, torture, National-slavery, Abidism, Arab slavery, burning of ones own languages and identity, self-hate to past millennial history, organ harvest for the Arab market, slavery in the evil Arab Passage unabashedly flourish.

    Eritrea is a land where one violates rights, jails and murders any innocent person as Ali Abdu had done many times, including the poisoning of the Kunama people and flees to the West – Australia – to hide as a “refugee” with out any qualms or guilty conscience. It is a land where liars and hypocrites have been destroying every foundation of the people for the last sixty years.

    Today, Eritrea has become the poster child of shame and humiliation for the entire African continent.”
