Why and how have I come to make a comparison about a frog being boiled to death in a pot, without realisation, in a gradual increase in temperature and the gradual extinction of the tormented people of Eritrea under the rule of the bestial dictator, Issayas Afeworki?
This striking idea came to my mind when I read of a fascinating science experiment performed on a frog in the 19th century. As the story goes, researchers found that, when they put a frog in a pot of boiling water, the frog quickly jumped out. On the other hand, when they put a frog in cold water and put the water on to boil over time, the frog allowed itself to be boiled to death.
Sadly, today, because of our utter failure in identifying in time the genocidal nature of the enemy of our people, and because of our lack of collective and effective action, the Eritrean dictator and his lieutenants in crime have also planned and designed the gradual and complacent extinction of our people, just like the frog in the experiment which boiled to death without awareness of the coming danger.
Subsequently, with the added malice coming from the coronavirus pandemic, God forbid, the Eritrean people are facing the danger of mass extinction.
May God, the almighty, protect and save the oppressed Eritrean people!
