As June and July are notoriously known for radical events in history, June of the current year has witnessed a sudden declaration by three Gulf countries, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, supported by Egypt and blessed by their new sponsor (President Donald Trump),  severing their diplomatic relations with their neighbour Qatar; the diplomatic rupture immediately turning into a full-fledged blockade imposed on  Qatar, in a way similar to the one on Gaza Strip (by Israel and Egypt); something unprecedented in depth and breadth in inter-Arab relations.

In education, we use the adjectives “TIMED” and “UNTIMED” in relation to assignments and exams we give to students as traditional tools to assess learning. As no one needs to be an educator in order to know these terms, there is no need to explain what they mean. Nonetheless, for the Eritrean opposition that lives in an idealistic world, the duty of bringing change is an “UNTIMED” assignment or open until the doomsday.

Our beloved uncle Nurhussien Mohammed Hagos Abera had passed away this morning, June 6th of 2017, after a prolonged illness. He will be buried tomorrow, June 8th, in Maryland (Washington DC area).

Mr. Nurhussein Abera graduated with a degree in law from the University of Cairo in 1953, which led him to become a prominent intellectual of his day. The presence, the guidance and the inspirations of my dearest uncle will be remembered by me now and forever.


He was one of Asmarino Jeberti’s and among few students who graduated in Law School from University of Cairo in 1953. He and his late brother, Dr. Yassin Mohammed Hagos Abera, have acquired remarkable reputations as scholars.


He and Dr. Yassin had a plan to change the education system for young Eritreans  and provide them a high quality education. But, due to the political situation at the time, the Haile Sellasie Regime had deprived Eritreans of the opportunity to  pursue quality education.


Nurhussien Aberra was known to encourage young Eritrean Muslims to pursue their education. When the Eritrean politics became worse and worse, he had migrated to USA.

Today the PFDJ and its dihard members are giving a big party to Foreigners and their likes.Twenty Six (26years)of slavery for those children of the Heroic fighters who brought the Flag to Asmara. Which flag is still not answered but it is a matter of convinience.The Blue coloured Flag of the Federation Era is flying in the Eritrean Diasphora homes, while the other 4 coloured of the PFDJ is all over Eritrean territories. It is not relevant to talk about the colour and contours of Flags in Eritrea, while the basic peoples necessities and needs are no where to get.

A View Into the Eritrean Regime

14 May 2017

Story image for eritrean news from

Eritreans were told and taught extensively through media, seminars, and training that they are unique, while the 'Sawa' military training along with other social networks are hugely invested in creating false sense of identity in the minds of Eritreans. As a result, they started to believe that the international community stand against them and their country. The foreign policy of Eritrea is, thus, designed to spread mistrust and hatred upon the next door countries. And, the citizens are made to think that way too. After this, Eritrea begun to be ruled at will. Then, the current agonies begun to take roots.

Bulldozing houses in Eritrea was not a crime that started in March 2015.  Prior to that, Keren and Hashala were among those badly hit by the regime’s bulldozers, leaving thousands of citizens without any shelter and with wounded dignity. Even our port city of Massawa, its centuries-old historical palace, and some of its houses, known to UNESCO as a part of the Eritrean cultural heritage, had their share of demolition before and after the turn of the century. Here we need to stop and briefly see the significance of the demolished houses and structure in the port city of Massawa.
