The picture above: left – seating is Paul Henze an American pseudo-intellectual that made a career for himself by spewing hate and distorting history. He was one of those arrogant, who think they know better for Africa than its own Sons and daughters.

Paul Henze is neither honest intellectual nor historian, but a miscarried CIA contact and propagandist of Ethiopia, who operated as chief adviser for the alternating Leaders of that nation.

He was by far the worst enemy of Eritrean sovereignty who has singlehandedly lobbied and campaigned aggressively in the USA. He planted a cancerous anti Eritrea seed for the duration of the armed struggle.

 

Paul Henze was a mentor to Ethiopian “intellectuals” more than he was an adviser to USA policy makers. He has written many Books on Ethiopia [his version of Ethiopia] made hundreds of lectures and interviews to newspapers and internet Bloggers; he has toured various countries – to lobby for Ethiopia; No Ethiopian intellectual can much what he has done to damage sovereign Eritrea.

Nevertheless, all his three decades conspiracy was flashed down to the toilet, when Eritreans under the leadership of the EPLF repealed the invading Ethiopia army by pushing it back to its capital – Addis Ababa.

Paul Henze interviewed Meles for five hours on their preliminary contact in Washington D.C. on April 3, 1990, just before the TPLF forces entered Addis Ababa. About his Marxist back ground; his relation with EPLF; his stands on Eritrean independence; his personal relation with president Esayas Afewerki of Eritrea and his prospect of post Eritrean independence etc….  a kind of background check before he meets US officials and lawmakers to plea for recognition and some help.  [Here is where his Trojan horse role commenced. And Paul assumed the rank of confidant]. paul-henzes (2011/05)  conversations-with-meles- zenawiaddisvoice.com.

In this interview, Paul rubs – in about land to Meles, he wanted to know his stand on commercial farming and foreign capital investment on farm land, setting him up – for the controversial massive fertile land grab by foreign countries in Ethiopia. That recently enticed a global uproar.

Paul Henze defies logic with his ridicules narrow minded anti Eritrea propaganda he tried to rewrite history with his lies.  He was very sensitive; he gets upset whenever his act of defamation of Eritrea is exposed. He can’t stand any positive coverage of Eritrean history particularly through the western media, he gets nervous. He makes sure nobody write or speak the truth about Eritrea, mainly in the USA and in the West.

Here are sample excerpts of his many works, how his weird idea of Eritrean war for liberation and his behind the seen futile spin before the court’s decision on the border conflict.

“Nonetheless, there are a few large non-facts that deserve to be disposed of.  Chief among these is the supposed thirty-year struggle for Eritrean liberation from Ethiopian rule.  It is this idea which fueled a marked bias for Eritrea in the leading media, including such highly responsible newspapers as the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post in the U.S. and the Economist in Britain.  The reality is that the skirmish between a Muslim group and a small Ethiopian army unit, in 1961, was scarcely the beginning of a « thirty-year struggle. »    Paul Henze   (Nov 15, 2007) “The question on Eritrea” haerel.org

This is a revelation how notoriously he was engaged in disinformation campaign at the inception of the Eritrean struggle: to ridicule, frustrate and attack it.  It is a kind of clue where the leaders of that country were getting ideas from. Religion has been used to get sympathy from the west and Israelis for expansionist Ethiopia. It was also used as weapon to create ethnic strife within Eritrea.

Interviewed by Robert Wiren of Les nouvelles d’Addis (December 28, 2001)

LNA. – Do you believe that serious tensions could happen on the northern border despite existing peace agreements and despite international mediation?

PH. –. Nowhere was Eritrean behavior worse than in the Irob region of northeastern Tigray. This Roman Catholic group is fiercely opposed to being given to Eritrea. If the international border commission were to decide that the region should belong to Eritrea–thus turning a population which wants to live in a democratizing society over to a failing police state – the Irob say they will rebel. Officials at the Foreign Ministry in Addis Ababa assured me they are confident that Ethiopia will not lose territory as a result of the border definition process. I hope they are right.

Here he is preempting the outcome by intimidating the leaders of that country, at the same time planting ridicules ideas that produced friction. This was his work order to Meles and the foreign minister, not to honor the border commissions ruling.

Thus every time Prime Minister Meles interviewed or asked about his reason to his rejection of the border commission’s ruling – his answer is a duplicate of Paul Henze statement.

When we connect the “dot” from the outset of Eritreans struggle for liberation, to present day, it is obvious who was cooking the anti -Eritrea propaganda book to the leaders of Expansionist Ethiopia.

Hence Haillesellase was using the religion card, to get Israeli’s and the west sympathy accusing Eritreans traditional relation with Arab neighbors. So was Mengestu.

Currently Meles zenawi in his last gasp was waving the terrorist card; to internationalize the border conflict by distorting Eritrea’s established relation with Somalia, in a grand disinformation campaign, with intention to stop Eritrea’s economic development; mainly the fast revenue generating natural resource. But He failed miserably to achieve that.

I posted his picture not to be cynical, but to remind where he started off. There is not wrong that Meles stood up for his people and fought to over throw the Fascist Derg. But what is wrong is for him to turn around and invade Somalia and Eritrea loot and kill their people who stood with him in time of his struggle, is not only immoral but crime against humanity.

He has admitted in his interview with Paul Henze that he has been using Somalia passport to travel to different countries, including the time of his interview in Washington DC. And logistic and other help from The E.P.L.F. the present Eritrean government.

Now he is out of every trick in the book- what is left for him is to observe the Algiers agreement and implement the commission’s border ruling, which has unanimous international endorsement including the UN. Otherwise his idea of bullying Eritrea is futile, besides Eritreans are not going to seat and take it forever.

Understandably Eritreans are frustrated about America’s wishy – washy attitude towards Eritrea regarding the conflict with expansionist Ethiopia, however, they shouldn’t be grumpy about it.  U.S.A. was lied -to by these pseudo intellectuals and technocrats.

Instead stand – up to these Expansionist Ethiopia’s handlers and pseudo intellectuals who followed the foot step of Paul.  Challenge them and expose their lie to America.

After all thanks to its martyred sons and daughters now Eritrea is a free nation that can defend and develop itself. You don’t have to worry about that, you must move on….  certainly Eritreans do not complain – they improvise. That is why the victories E.P.L.F was brought to the theater.

We are Americans Eritrean origin, settled here for good raised kids and grandkids. We are productive citizens who played by the rule; we have contributed to the welfare and security of this nation, Never the less we don’t have to forget the people and country we left behind, we have to make sure the expansionist Ethiopia invading army never threatens them again.

We didn’t come here to turn Africa into a “killing field” or to mock America; we rather prefer to be the bridge for peace and prosperity.

In its part The U.S.A. must temper its global ambition certainly in Africa. It should stop this notion of anchor and client nation, instead treat all small and big nations equally and recognize their autonomy.  Bring back the “Point -4” dismantle the “N.G.O.” -it is a waste of the American Tax payer’s money.  They are more into – “scouting” than developing,

Awet n’ hafash!

Expansionist Ethiopia has run-out of tricks and tricksters.

  1. This is a piece of writing full of hate.Brother ,diagnosis your self. When ever your president opened his mouth he speaks about global issues that has nothing to do with Eritrea.If you have mind to think the problem of Eritrea is about injustices,lack of good governance and democracy and fair trial for jailed one.Forget about sovereignty and expansionist,it can only deceive brainwashed person like you.In the country of no constitution the issue can not be about external matter ,problem that is non existent.

    • Tekeste:
      I think you’re the one whose view on the subject is severely clouded with pure hate. The author has presented Paul Henze in a most accurate way: deceitful, politically corrupt and anti-Eritrea agent. If Eritrea’s sovereignity is not that significant to you as was implicated on your statement, then you have (and you probably are) the option of living in another “democratic”country as a refugee. But, for Eritreans sovereignty is something close to heart and one they paid for dearly and won’t compromise. Speaking of democracy, a term that is becoming quite fassionable by you and your likes, if it was to present to you as a human figure painted by a famous artist you’d probably have difficulty distinguishing its head from its lower extremety. As to the issue of good governance, I say pictures speak louder than words and recommend that you check out all the progresses that have been accomplished in all aspects of social life be it healthcare, education, agriculture and infrastrucre. Democracy is a process that will come about and render significant meaning when a nation stands on its own feet, economically strong and a statehood in which political decisions can be pusued freely without foreign interventions

    • Tekeste,

      You are not Eritrean. If you don’t have the courage to disclose your true identity why do you expect Eritreans and Ethiopians to take you seriously? Grow up man!!

  2. All what you wrote is simply with no substance:Ethiopia is not part of tplf and eplf distractive devilish act. It tried to see things in its natural prospectives but tigre warlords distroyed what ethiopia has offered for both people without regard to ethnic politics. Now we have seen both esayas and woyane both are devlish in nature. please do not blame ethiopia on falsehood ground: tigre hat got what it wished.

  3. Adulis

    If you think slowly you will understand what you have written amounts to a collection of rubbish. Where is your sense of timing gone?

  4. A very interesting article!
    Interestingly, there’s a new article by Reuters posted at Chicago Tribune with a title “Troubled Ethiopia-Somalia History Haunts Horne of Africa”, in which the author strongly implicated religion as been the major cause of the rift between the two countries. The article talks about something that happened some 500 years ago when Mohammed Gragn and his followers invaded parts of Ethiopia. Once again, Paul Henze’s view as “an expert of the Honre” on the subject is included. As usual, his position was biased and tilted towards Ethiopia which he considers ” a christian” country and gave his assessment of Ethipian sentiment of the Gragn era. The man, in his wicked way, was trying to instill fear and mistrust between the two neighborly people by bringing religion as a main issue. The fact is that Somalia and Ethiopia have fought several wars in the past over a territory which is claimed by both. The dispute has yet to be resolved. It’s disengenuis on the part of the author to inflict injury to an old wound by bringing out 500 year old religious tales which has nothing to do with the current crisis.

  5. Paul Henze was a CIA agent but he was never a mentor of Ethiopian intellectuals as writer falsely alleges. He wasa fierely opposed to the Ethiopian progressive opposition. Eritrean commentators pls try to get your facts right before making wrong and pathetic statement on Ethiopia.Henze was a supporter of both Isayas and Meles–no need to thid though he changed and attacked the Eritrean regime later on

  6. Dear Temesgen

    I have a mixed feeling on your writing which is highly intellectual and well written. Such academic concept would have been more productive if it was put in the write context, in the context that the country is now suffering from chronic political, social and economic problems, in the context that the collapse of socio-economic formation which was establishes as a result of thirty years struggle, to save the endangered species of the Eritrean population which was created by the current regime (PFDJ). I would understand you may be the sole agent of the Issayas Regime but you’re the one who is running out of tricks to full the Eritrean people by diverting the domestic thought to the irrelevant subjects. I urge you to thing and come back to write an article which defends the Eritrean people who are suffering under the PFDJ now. I do not want to write a lengthy statement explaining to you as I assume you are an intellectual element who I expect to defend your people rather than the oppressive system. Forget the entertainment with political scenario which is an abstract, deal with our own problems in our country.

    Thank you

    Gurum

  7. He is a Jews Sionist and I am glad that he is dead now.

  8. This article goes back to 80th and very backward outlook, Ethiopia and Ethiopians are going forward but you are behind like camel pee, wake up and smell the coffee

  9. How comes Still we have people who think this way although we are in different Era? Instead of talking day and night about others why don’t you talk of your internal problems? If you are living in democratic country and get all the benefits as human why don’t you think of those suffering inside?
    Ethiopia has its own government and Eritrea is supposed to have its own government. Some time it seems there are people who care more about Ethiopia than Eritrean (their own mother land). if you don’t care what is going on in your country that indicates you want to be under Ethiopia. say it frankly. And Ethiopian people will not agree for unity now because they are doing fine without. So we should only think first of our problems. Congress has successfully confirmed where our problems are and accordingly we have got new administration to tackle the enemy. Join us ….Smerrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  10. thankyou esayas for your briliant and exelent explanation,when i read all those comments i always try to think about the commenters in my mind ask many questions and speak with myself- and ask are this eritreans or not,are they serious or emotionalists,do they know eritrean history or not.if this people know the current eritrea situation, why are they so blind and full of hate towards eritrea?by the way,at the time when paul was writing there where also others, who wrote books about eritrea like niel kinoks book-NEVER NEEL DOWN or michiela wong-I DID NOT DO IT FOR YOU this books could help you know who eritrea and eritreans are,and those who read tigrigna ,the best book written by an eritrean in eritrea for eritreans is “AGEB” by Dr. mismay gebrehiwet,i think this is the bigest favour i can make, if you don`t read one of them you will be a total losser,if you read them,you can still critisize eritrea but you have opened your eyes,and that is akseptable.
