Martin Plaut: A Contemptuous ‘Fellow’ Rivalling Comical Ali

Martin Plaut become the mouth piece of the TPLF cabal
A liar par excellence. Martin Plaut, a former BBC Africa correspondent, has become the mouth piece of the TPLF cabal, effectively replacing its nut-case propagandist, and now fugitive, Getachew Reda.

BY BORKENA

The notorious Iraqi Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, better known as Comical Ali, and Nazi Germany’s Joseph Goebbels are distinctly remembered as two of history’s wickedest liars—par excellence.

It is fresh in our memory that Muhammad, a former Iraqi diplomat and politician, shot to global fame for his theatrical daily briefings fraught with lies and fabrications during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In one occasion as Baghdad was falling and artillery fire could be heard from a near distance, he famously told the media that Iraq is beating the US-led coalition.

Eritrea Lived 3 Years in One in 2018

The year 2018 is closing fast and has been a momentous year for Eritrea.

BY BEREKET KIDANE

Countries are like people in many ways. Some years are more important than others. Some years drag and nothing much happens. In other years, a lot happens quickly and leaves you breathless. In 2018, Eritrea had one of those seminal years where too many things happened too quickly and its citizens were struggling to catch their breath. Continue reading Eritrea Lived 3 Years in One in 2018

The Audacity and Lost Battles of Martin Plaut

Nothing to do with democracy or human rights in Eritrea. Martin Plaut, the notorious anti-Eritrean fake news peddler and certified liar, once again caught with his pants down at a presentation organized by Baroness Glenys Kinnock at the UK House of Lords.

In recent years, I have attended many Eritrea-bashing events that are presented by Martine Plaut and his associates. Two days ago, I made my way to the House of Lords to attend an event that was advertised as Continue reading The Audacity and Lost Battles of Martin Plaut

Mirjam van Reisen and Martin Plaut: Incubators of Terror

Mirjam Van Reisen and Martin Plaut, the two unsavoury surrogates of violence, have for long been working to see a rampant criminality and violence within Eritrean Diaspora communities. With a veil of journalism and human rights activism, they have been encouraging violence; as such, they are essentially incubators of terror. That is precisely why Eritreans across the board are calling for proactive measures within the bounds of law.

BY HAILEAB LUUL TESFAI

When a highly-motivated group of young Eritreans, organized by YPFDJ were gathering for an annual conference from across Europe with a youthful fervour and a sense of duty to themselves, their respective communities and the motherland, they came across an unpleasant surprise stashed in an Easter basket, not of the M & M chocolate bunny, but of an organized intimidation, packaged with “human rights” glossy wrap, by non-other than Mirjam Van Reisen and Martin Plaut.

Martin Plaut and Ethiopia’s Politics of Famine

CRAP MENTALITY. Ethiopia routinely blames Eritrea for almost anything that goes wrong in the country. Since it is absurd to blame Eritrea for the famine, Eritrea must have implicated in a phantom famine of itself. 

BY RED SEA FISHER

This past year has not been so kind to Ethiopia’s beleaguered, ruling regime, the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). After rigging the 2015 parliamentary elections, the regime has faced incessant protest by Oromo and Amhara activists, which has led to thousands of deaths, mass incarceration, an internet ban, killing of foreigners and destruction of foreign firms, triggering the government to declare a state of emergency and drawing international condemnation.

Martin Plaut’s Assault on Eritrea Answered

Martin Plaut, the notorious anti-Eritrean fake news peddler and certified liar, once again caught with his pants down at a presentation he and a certain Vanessa Berhe called at the SOAS London.

By Daniel Berhane,

In his mission to misinform, thereby tarnish the image of Eritrea, Martin Plaut has yet organized another event titled “Africa’s most Repressive State” at University of London this week. He also used the event to sell his new book, ‘Understanding Eritrea: Inside Africa’s most repressive state‘.

Martin Plaut has clearly thrown away any pretension of objective journalism. Despite his claim that the book is about understanding Eritrea, its content is a pure propaganda to misinform, misrepresent, and misconstruction of Eritrean history in order to fit his agenda.
