The “Interventionist” and “Destabilizer” Canard

by Dr. Fikrejesus Amahazion | Last week, the popular website AllAfrica.com featured an article titled, “US-Ethiopia Relations Take a Wrong Turn”, authored by Johnnie Carson, who served as US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa from 2009 to 2012 during the first Obama administration and is a former US ambassador to Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Kenya. The article strongly criticized the Trump administration’s recent decision to suspend and delay development assistance to Ethiopia over the latter’s filling of the new Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). In the course of criticizing and arguing against the Trump administration’s decision, the author made several claims about Eritrea which merit further discussion. Read more

The National Unity and Identity of Eritrea

The National Unity and Identity of Eritrea

by Simon Weldemichael
The people of Eritrea were robbed of a culture and identity of their own under successive periods of colonization. The colonizers worked hard to create division, erode the culture and erase the sense of collective pride. For decades Eritreans lived, struggled and sacrificed lives and limbs together. Nation, as defined by Ernest Renan, is a soul or spiritual principle comprised of a rich legacy of memories, present-day consent, and the desire to live together to perform great deeds in the future. The common heritage, including the protracted resistance and sacrifice of generations, gave a new sense of common fate to Eritreans. More importantly, the thirty years of armed struggle helped Eritreans to enhance unity, pride, culture, and identity. Read more

Eritrea: Extending the Conversation

Eritrea: Extending the Conversation

By  Dr. FikrejesusAmahazion | Last week, Eritrea Profile featured an article written by Sara Tesfay titled, “Eritrea’s National Service – A National Rite of Passage” (published on Wednesday August 22). To briefly recap, the article presented a concise, yet critical, examination of howdifferent aspects of Sawa and national service in Eritrea were targeted for heavy criticism by some groups and countries during a recent hearing of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC; held in July 2020). Notably, the perceptive and insightful piece helped to clear up several longstanding misconceptions and incorrect assumptions surrounding Sawa and national service. As well, it raised a number of significant points that are worthy of further consideration and merit deeper discussion. In the following article, I aim to build upon some of key points raised in Sara Tesfay’s article and hope to extend the important conversation that she began. Read more
