Conte in East Africa and Hysteria of Certain Groups Whose Interests are Affected

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte's visit to Eritrea made certain left groups in Italy angry
Giuseppe Conte traveled to Ethiopia and Eritrea, but someone who has so far supported war and mass exoduses does not take it very well, partly because probably from a framework of political and regional recomposition, they know they have everything to lose. And then also the possibility that public subsidies for publishing can disappear certainly creates some further apprehension …

BY FILIPPO BOVO | OPINIONE-PUBBLICA *

The visit of Giuseppe Conte in Ethiopia and Eritrea, undoubtedly crowned with success, has aroused the hysterical reaction of many “humanitarian” and “human rights” associations, of the political front connected to them and composed largely, but not exclusively, of the left and above all mainstream media that for years have also benefited from the denigration and de-legitimization of Asmara and many other countries not subject to a certain political, economic or even cultural order (it may also be the case, in other circumstances, of Syria, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, even China or India, and so on).

My Encounter with Fr. Mussie Zerai, Nobel Peace Prize Candidate (Open Letter)

A guardian angel of refugees or an evil clergyman?

By Daniel Sillas,

You were sitting almost in front of me at the seminar “Horn of Africa. Fleeing war without a name and without an end”, held in Rome on June 24th at the ACLI national headquarters. You spoke and I patiently waited for longer than an hour for you to finish your speech.

I was only allowed five minutes, as agreed with the organizers. I had been up until dawn to write two pages that I would have read swiftly not to waste even a minute. Continue reading My Encounter with Fr. Mussie Zerai, Nobel Peace Prize Candidate (Open Letter)

(Weird News): Newspaper Call Fr. Mussie Zerai a Hero and Potential Nobel Prize Candidate

One Man’s Terrorist is Another Man’s Freedom Fighter. The Eritrean communities worldwide, however, considers Fr. Mussie Zerai as the priest that is at the center of the human trafficking ring, responsible for the suffering of Eritrean youth by luring them to the Sinai, Mediterranean and beyond while hiding himself behind the walls of the Vatican.

By Le Matin,

THE November 20 issue of a French daily newspaper ‘Le Matin’ carried a small column on Abba/Father Mussie Zerai with a title “Miraculous: This Priest Saves Lives from a distance by his mobile phone”, in which the writer believed the little known Eritrean priest is a hero who is viewed by some people as a potential future candidate for Nobel Prize for Peace.

A quick google translation of the writeup goes like this:

Aba Mussie. His name may, for sure, mean nothing to you (the reader). Yet, this Eritrean priest who lives in Erlinsbach (Swiss Canton of Solothurn), and viewed by some people as a future Nobel Peace Prize winner, is a hero. Since 2003, through repeatedly sending his mobile telephone number to all directions, he has saved thousands of lives of migrants lost between Africa and Italy by informing coast guards about their situation. These contributions give him the legitimacy to have enjoined recently at law court to Europe to come out of its ‘logic of militarized fortress’”.  Continue reading (Weird News): Newspaper Call Fr.
