  1. Sir or Madame,
    Greetings! I am from inside Eritrea, Asmara. I would like to express my pleasure about the newly established Eritrean Website which seems to start with a promising timely and important articles regarding the Eritrean heroism and history. So far so good! I appreciated Mekonen Kidane’s articles about the history of the late hero, Zerizghi as well as the Amharic articles and book reviews of two Ethiopian eye-witnesses who were Eritrean, EPLF’s, combatants during the Eritrean Armed Struggle Independence. There is no doubt that such books written in Amharic by Ethiopians have a lot to tell as far as the Eritrean humanity and sympathy on Ethiopian war prisoners and nationalists are concerned. Both books have a ground-breaking stories and evidences for the ones who want to know about Eritrean objectivity. It is pretty good your Website has hosted the synopsis of such books. For sure, in general, what you Website starts to publish as regards genuine Eritrean narratives will have s seminal impact for all walks of life and generations to come too.
    I hope you would continue to portray and glorify at large regarding Eritrean nationalism, heroism, resilience, tenacity and self-reliance not least the current development campaigns and achievements of the people of Eritrea and its nation as well.
    Fish Kidane, Asmara
    Victory to the Masses!
