This is clearly another CIA website, being used to beat down a strong-minded, anti neo-colonialistic African government.

The sickist thing of all is that you sheep like christians are singing songs in solidarity with phantom christians. That's right sorry to burst your hyper-inflated, self righteous, crusading bubble but there really are not christians suffering in Eritrea so go find yourselves a new niche pseudo 'africans in need' project and leave the hard working people of eritrea alone.
