Our Wishes for Eritrea and the Region for 2007

“Right now, U.S. policy for the region is based on a blind support of a minority regime that is willing to do anything to ensure external aid, but has little internal support. We think this short-sighted policy jeopardizes long-term U.S. interests in the region, and even the rest of the continent."

Eritrea: 20 years of National Harmony

As Eritrea celebrates its 20th independence anniversary, few salient phrases are being used to sum-up the fruits its independence. The phrases include: “dignity”, “unity” and “pride.” One other key ingredient phrase that I want to dwell on today is “harmony.” Eritrean society’s harmonious coexistence has always intrigued and fascinated those who know Eritrea. Personally it’s deeply satisfying to be part of a society as diverse and scarred as Eritrea, yet with no match to its sacrosanct perfect harmony.

In the 20 years since independence, the societal harmony has been palpable. Granted, Eritrean harmony has been tested, challenged, disparaged and assaulted. And yet it kept maturing and intensifying. Eritrea’s 20 years of harmony is a model of a kind. That is why the independence journey has been described as a “Perfect Harmony...for National Dignity”.

In the context of the Horn of Africa, any sanctions measure by the UN Security Council against Eritrea would be recklessness of the highest order. In fact, it would be tantamount to throwing a lighted match on a gasoline-doused flammable object.

Letter to United Nations Security Council

December 1, 2009

Dear ......

As Americans of Eritrean descent, we would like to express once again our profound regret that a draft resolution is reportedly being circulated among the members of the UN Security Council calling for
sanctions against Eritrea for allegedly supplying weapons to Somali insurgents—charges that have been proven to be unfounded, baseless and extremely reckless.
