An Ethiopian and Susan Rice Semiannual Ritual at the UN Security Council

This May 2009, six hours long private meeting between Zenawi and Rice was the genesis of their ill-gotten, evil agenda of sanctioning Eritrea hatched.

By Bereket Tecle,

Once again this July, the chairman of the so-called U.N. Somalia Eritrea Monitoring group (Matt Bryden), US Ambassador to the UN (Susan Rice) and PM of the genocidal minority regime in Ethiopia (Meles Zenawi) have begun what they have been doing for a while; a joint semiannual ritual at the UNSC.

The goal is to undermine, ridicule and despoil every Eritrean institution, its people and its leadership. It has been obvious when it comes to Eritrea and the Eritrean people, no road is too low or no lie is too bold for the TPLF-run regime in Ethiopia. Continue reading

BADME – A Political Pawn for the Eritrean Quislings League (EQL)

Paulos Tesfagiorgis, an opportunist fast talking sleek, who works day-in-day-out to provide the minority regime in Ethiopia what it could not get in the battlefield or EEBC

By Sophia Tesfamariam,

The 12-year long treasonous betrayals and crimes against the people of Eritrea committed by the Eritrean Quislings League (EQL) and that of their coteries, bandwagon activists with lynch mob mentalities, have been well documented. As it was impossible to keep up with the various names given to the groups that keep hatching in cyberspace, it was much easier to label them the Eritrean Quislings League (EQL). The EQL falsely claimed to be representing a large section of the Eritrean Diaspora, when in fact, their support remains minimal or non-existent.  Continue reading
