    Jawar should be Africa leader. He has good ideas. For example he says: be voice for the voiceless,
    work together, respect other tribes etc… He also understands African needs.

  19. Right

    October 13, 2013 at 1:45 am

    Jawar is right. We need to honor our tribes, our parents, our families
    We need to teach our children about our tribes.
    People are more important than country/land.
    Jawar is the first person in Ethiopia who has this idea.
    Even many Christian don’t know about this.

    Forget about Jawar. Forget about Oromo
    What do you think – who is more important to you?
    Your Tribe or your land /country
    Remember you are existed because of your Tribe.

    When Jawar says I am Oromo. first He is right
    Yes Family is first. Tribe is first. People is first.
    We are exist because of our Parents. We are here because of our Tribes.
    We need to honor our tribes first.
    Doesn’t the Bible says honor your father and mother first.
    Ethiopia is a country/land. not to be worshiped.
    Jawar is not a Christian, but he teaches – people/tribes are more important than country/land.
    If you do not agree with this go and read the Bible and you will see it.

    Ethiopia is a Greek word – means sunburned (burnt face)\
    It is a Nickname – Curse
    And we do not want any one to be called by this name.
    Our fathers did not know the meaning – that is why they took the name.
    Now we do not have to be called by this name any longer.
    We can have our own name.

    Dear Jawar,
    thank you so much for your insightful thoughts! Abashas (Amharas) don`t get your points; moreover, they don`t want to get it! Amharas are known for begging (kadhachuu) and talking. Our dear Jawar, our Oromo struggle will continue until all the points you mentioned will be realized fully!!!

    Not genuine analysis and is double standard view compared with what has been said earlier. The analysis is primitive and immature which is not reflect the reality on the ground. This is a negative sum game contribute nothing to the betterment of people. Jawar, don’t try to cover your inferiority/superiority complex by playing with words and categorizing the majority as having Oromo phobia.

    “It is not enough merely to call freedom, democracy and human rights. There has to be a united determination to preserve in the struggle and nothing is precious than freedom & independence.”…Burma.


    The oromo’s are a cushitic-speaking people with physical characteristics varying from light skinned Hamitic to dark skinned Nilotic peoples who live in eastern Africa. The land of Cush,Nubia or parts of today’s Ethiopia is the home of the cushites,Even if the Abyssinian colonizers denied the fact that oromo’s are the native habitants of the horn region called oromia. Their physical features, culture, language and a number of evidences unquestionably point to the fact that the oromo’s are indigenous to the horn of Africa.

    Many historians wrote about the origin of the oromos including the self centered Abyssinian history writers. According to the so called Abyssinian scholars like Abba Bahre the oromo’s might not be where they are today. But few scholars like Bates(1979) comments,..”the oromo’s were a very ancient race, the indigenous stock, perhaps on which most other peoples in the horn have been grafted.”

    In the same manner p.t.w.Baxter contends “The cradle land of the oromo was in cool grasslands of southern Ethiopia where they lived as pastoral stockmen. In the early 19th century, triggered by demographic and ecological changes which we don’t yet under-stand and possibly also by the introduction of saddled horse, there was a population upsurge and oromo spread rapidly. They took over most of the territory which they still farm & graze. They absorbed the peoples they overran, and drove out the garrisons and religious houses from those parts of the south of Ethiopia which the Amhara had colonized during the previous century(19th c).

    On the same subject among many oromo elites and nationalists who are very concerned about reconstruction of oromo history and culture the now vice-president of AAU Dr.Gamachu Magarsa on the his book when comments about OROMUMMA “….a long time ago before any creation came to existence ,waaqa wanted all that was contained in him self come in to being. Hence,waqaa created the body of water, knowing that water is the source of all life. He then called the water HORA WOLABU. Then divided the impregnated body of water into two parts: Bishaan Gubbaa-the water above and Bishaan Goodaa-the water below. He divided the waters of the above into three parts: water, sky and heavenly bodies. waqa then named these five acts of creation yaayaa shanaan,or the five fundaments. with these,waqa drew ground plan upon which the rest of the world would be built. These began with the birth of the sun and the moon.

    The first day began when the sun rose at dawn and ended when the sun set on the first day. This first day waaqa called Addula, “first sun”. It take waaqa 27 days to complete his creation. These days occurred between the rising and setting of two new moons. Every tenth day, the creator rested, and so he took three days off. Then waaqa made humans and named him Horo(Horomo).

    On horo’s body waaqa placed five limbs ,a head, two arms, and legs. Each hand divided into five fingers and each foot divided into five toes.

    On his face waaqa placed seven features. Horo thus reflected waaqa as period of creation, because he was made up of 27 different parts. on the body of the human being, three parts remain unaccounted, corresponding to the three days in which the creation of the world remained suspended.

    Starting from this time on, the oromo people traced their origin from Horo,the founding father. The Fossil evidences discovered in oromiya(lucy,diknesh,chaltu over 3.5 million year old which was discovered in oromia in 1980’5 and the newly discovered EDALTU the oldest fossil ever discovered only about 200km from finfine are good emphasis to be added in my opinion) indicates the fact that humanity is originated in Eastern Africa(oromiya),thus,oromians beliefs are scientifically supported. The agricultural practice and their democratic law the GADA SYSTEM trace back almost two million years as well.

    In oromo language, the name Horo comes from the verb HORU,meaning multiply and be fertile. The first letter “H” is not always pronounced, and so the name (H) oromo means the people who were descended from Horo.

    Horo,the founding father, had two sons. His first born son was named BORANA; his younger son named BARENTU. In oromo language,word Horo designates the wall of the back bedroom of the tradition oromo house. The entrance of the house,from the inside looking outside traditionally faces the East. The rays of the rising sun pass through the eastern opening of the house to the room where the head of house hold sleeps. The word ‘ANNA’ means ‘toward’ or ‘next to’. In oromo language, the last vowel is not always pronounced. The parts of the name ‘BORANA’ together mean “those who face east.”

    Similarly,the name BARENTU is made up of two terms:’BARRII’,mean ‘sunrise’, and’-AANTU’ the feminine form of ‘-ANNA’. Together the two words signify ‘those facing the west.'”

    To sum up, from these definition even if those self-centered Abyssinian scholars don’t accept these truth,oromo elites and every body who is proud of being oromo & who understands the meaning of OROMMUMA can give their feed back.


    Afaan Oromo the lingua-franca of oromo people belongs to the Eastern Cushitic groups of languages. It is the mother tongue of over 30 million oromo people living in the Ethiopian empire and neighboring countries including Kenya,Djibouti,Tanzania,Uganda and other countries in eastern Africa. Not less than 8 million non-oromos also speak it as a second language. This makes Afaan oromo the third most widely spoken language in Africa after Arabic and Hausa from among approximately1000 languages Gragg,1982.

    In spite of the fact that Afaan oromo is a lingua-franca in the whole of Ethiopia, it has been not only neglected but also ruthlessly suppressed by Abyssinian authorities for over a century. Amazingly, it survived a determined effort to destroy it by the combined effort of the dedicated oromo MARTYRS!

    Afan oromo was totally neglected from any form of medium of instruction by saying that Afan oromo ‘birds language-Afaan sinbiraa’ breaks Radios and TVs. In my opinion even if OLF is the one who brought it into action greater thanks goes to our oromo brothers and sisters who lived that time and give their precious life to all oromo case and survival of Afaan oromo ;from among those dedicated brothers Abba Gammachis(onesmosinasib), Sheik Bakir Saphalo and many others are those whose names must be listed on the first line of the history book of independent Gada republic of oromiya.

    3: LAND

    Originally ,Oromiya the land of oromo is located between 2-12 degree N and 34-44 degree E. It is bordered by Somalia in the SE, Afar in the NE, Djibouti in the E, Sudan in the W, Kenya in the S , Amhara and Tigray (Abyssinia) in the north. Oromiya is home to many rivers and lakes famous for their scenic beauty besides being endowed with rich natural resources both renewable and non-renewable, healthy environment, and ecological set up in the past before being looted and destroyed by Abyssinian authorities. The forests of oromiya contain a variety of excellent and valuable timbers before being devastated by colonizers of the empire. oromiya is known for its bio-diversity ,a number of indigenous species of birds, mammals and many precious wild animals.

    For instance, crops like coffee, the largest cash crop for many countries through out the world is originated in oromiya prior to 1000 A.D, Anchote,aroot crop & favorite food of oromiya,oakra and other indigenous.

    There are also hundreds of beautiful birds which are only found in oromiya , Red Fox on the island on the air ,tulu dimtu as called by BBC reporter who once went there ,Gadamsa ,and many other species.


    “There are many ways of thinking about God. Agnostics question the existence of God. Atheists deny the existence of God. Theists believe that a Supreme Being exists. Theology is the study of ideas about God. Experts in this study are called theologians.

    Many theologians have used rational arguments to defend the existence of God. Some have developed cosmological arguments, which state that a first cause must have begun the process of creation, a cause that must be God. Others have set forth teleological arguments based on belief in a grand design or purpose for the world that only a supreme God could have created.

    Some Christian theologians in the 1960’s suggested that “God is dead.” They argued that the traditional image of God as a father figure with supernatural powers does not reflect the modern world’s scientific view of reality. Other theologians have kept the idea of God but used names that are not personalized or limited, such as “the unconditioned ultimate” and “the wholly other.””

    Animism, pronounced AN uh mihz uhm, is a term for any religion in which souls of dead people or spirits of nature play an important role. In these religions, offerings and special festivals may be held to honor the souls of the dead. Followers of such religions also may worship spirits believed to exist in fields, hills, trees, water, and other parts of nature. In some religions, these souls or spirits may enter people’s bodies to make known their own needs or wishes. This often happens, for example, in the religious practices of Southeast Asian folk traditions.

    The word animism came into use chiefly as the result of a theory about the origins of religion. This theory, suggested by the British anthropologist Sir Edward Burnett Tylor, was published in 1871. Tylor believed all religion had developed from early people’s first ideas of souls in human beings and of spirits in parts of nature. Tylor used the term animae for these souls and spirits, and his beliefs became known as the theory of animism.

    Scholars no longer accept Tylor’s theory as an explanation of the origin of the world’s religions. However, the worship of spirits or souls is still frequently called animism.”


    Having read through few peoples ideas about God from World Book 1999 and to answer the question above lets go on to read through Oromo ideas about God. From my own experience I had acquired from my own friends in united states I am very concerned about oromo religion and I at least want every oromo person to know what oromo religion is rather than hating it from away. so I would like to quote on oromo religion deeply from different sources I had collected so far and I would like to ask you to go through every detail and explore what oromo religion is.

    Before their adoption to Christianity at the turn of 19thc and Islam the oromo people practiced their own religion. They believed in the supreme being called WAAQA ,WAQAAYO or WAAQ ,which approximates the English word God. The manifestation of the power of Waaqa through Ayaana is told to the people through Qallu’s (men) or Qalliti’s (women). The known Qallu in the ancient time was Abba Mudaa who most probably lived between Bale and Ganele river valleys specifically in Fugug according to Asemarom Lagesse,oromo democracy.

    To trace some evidences on this text M.De Almeida (1628-46) had said; “the oromo’s are neither Christians, moors nor heathens, for they have no idols to worship” even if he misinterpreted oromo religion. But for the oromo’s waaqa is the creator of every thing, source of all life omni present ,infinite ,he can do and undo every thing ,he is pure ,intolerant of injustice ,crime ,sin and all false hood.

    From:hhtp:// one can get more information about oromo religion, on this paper for your information in case you can’t access the suggested web site I want to rewrite the original text as follows.

    “In pre-colonial oromo society ,the core of oromo social economic ,political philosophical and spiritual life was a holistic institution known Gadaa. Under gadaa ,oromos believed in waaqa (god. waaq is one of the supreme being, but many as ayaana. Ayyaana exist in every body and every thing in the universe. In oromo society waaq creates and regulates the existence of all animate and inanimate ,material and non material nature and places them in a well-balanced cosmic order.

    As an extension of his phenomenon ,oromos believe that the society collapses unless a balance is stuck between male and female ,young and old, spiritual and physical power in the cosmic order of waaqa’s wisdom. The interdependence of the dominant and the laminas is considered as a precondition for peace and prosperity in both meta physical and practical sense.

    Oromos refer to this concept of peace and order of waaqa as Safuu. Safuu is extremely important in oromo religious and political thought. If the balance is disturbed ,it is said that safuu is lost, safuu cabse ykn dabse jedhama (mine). The loss of safuu is the loss of seera waaq (waaq’s law and order). The loss of safuu signals the reign of chaos and disaster.

    Thus ,waaq is the source and the course of every thing simultaneously. Waaq is the beginning and end ,one and many ,infinite and infinitesimal all at the same time. Waaq exists in every thing and every thing exists in it. Waaq is the fabric that weaves the past, the present and the future. This philosophical ,political and religious thought of the oromo is embodied in their emblem the Faajjii Walaabuu. Faajjii walaabuu is a tricolor emblem with white ,red, and white hues.

    The white is the past, the ancestors, the bones, the ashes. white is the past ,the bones remain behind when life flickers out. white is the ashes that remain when the fire is out. White is the ancestors

    The red is the present, the living, the here and the now. Red is the flesh. Red is the blood that rushes through our veins. Red is the living fire. Red is the present.

    The black is the future. Black is the unknown and the unknowable. Black is the spirit, the soul. Black is Waaq (God). Black is holy and sacred. Thus ,in the three colors of Faajjii Walaabuu ,waaq weaves together the past, the present and the future ;the bones, the flesh and the soul.

    Contemporary oromo society, however, is a multi-faith society. Although there is little doubt that oromos have pursued many paths into the spiritual world, the three major religious thoughts claiming the vast majority of oromos are Islam, Christianity, and oromo religion. Quite often religion has been a highly sensitive and divisive issue in our communities. We need a positive space where we do not fight over ideas but share them respectfully.”

    The same article is briefly written the paper contributed by one of the members of ONA under the title THE CULTURAL BASES OF OROMO PEOPLE HOOD AND NATIONALISM in the year 2003 fully supported by evidences from different books written by different authors over centuries. To help the audiences understand better the concept of oromo religion and to let oromo youngsters know what their ancestors used to believe I wrote the original text as follows…

    ” Page 6 of the attached document contends ..Oromo religious and philosophical world views consider the organization of spiritual ,physical and human worlds as interconnected phenomena, and Waaqa,the creator, regulates their existence and functions in balanced ways. Explaining how oromo believe that waaqa directs the world from above and controls every thing from with in ,Annesa Kassam on his book , The Oromo Theory of social Development between the state and civil society in Africa expounds that ” the image of creation has important consequences for the oromo vision of the universe as a whole. It has influenced among other aspects of its traditional culture ,its political and economic thought, and determined its traditional system of government and modes of production. Oromos use three concepts to explain the organization and interconnection of human, spiritual and physical worlds. These three concepts are Ayaana (spirit) , Uuma (nature), and Safuu (moral and ethical order). Oromos believe that through Ayaana Waaqa created and regulates human and physical worlds in balanced ways. This Ayaana also maintains the connection between the creator and the created. Oromo society has organizing principles for its known and unknown universe like any society; Ayaana is a major organizing principle of oromo cosmology through which the concepts of time and creation are ordered.

    Ayaana as a system of classification and an organizing principle of oromo cosmology establishes the connection between waaqa and nature & society by differentiating and at the same time uniting the created things and the creator. Magarsaa further argues that “Ayaana is a religious and philosophical construct which represents the principles of temporality and spirituality …(It) also serves as an operating device according to which the entire universe is organized and classified.”

    Oromos believe in Waaqa,a monotheistic God, that created the world through its Ayaana. They believe that this Supreme being created Ayaana and uses to organize scattered things into order. Magarsa explains that “Ayaana is the mechanism by which the creator propels it self into becoming its own opposite, and dwells in that which it creates. This is then transposed to explain the basic principles that embed themselves in the diverse oromo institutions, since there is no distinction between the laws of thought, the laws of nature, history and society.” As a religious and philosophical construct ,Ayaana provides meanings of the complex universe: “Faced with the concrete reality of existence and the contradictions, oromo seem to have been compelled to look for creator, who not only creates but also holds the opposing forces in balance, and represents permanence behind the flux of existence. In the oromo view all things that are created were made possible through Ayaana. Ayaana is the organizing principle ,that . . . gives the form to anything and every thing.” The concept known as Uuma includes every thing created by Waaqa including Ayaana.

    The third concept Saffu as explained by one of oromo elites Asafa Jalata on his book Oromo nationalism and the Ethiopian Discourse: the search for freedom and Democracy, the cultural roots of oromo nationalism(1998), “is an ethical and moral code that the oromos use to differentiate bad from good and wrong from right…[s]affu constitutes the ethical basis upon which all human action should be founded; it is that which directs one on the right path; it shows the way in which life can be best lived.” Oromos claim that the understanding of laws of Waaqa,nature and society both morally and ethically and living accordingly is necessary. Oromos believe in God’s law and the law of society that they establish through the Gada System of democracy to maintain Nagaa(peace) and Saffu among Waaqa ,Society ,and nature to achieve their full human destiny known as KAO or KAYYO.

    Lambert Bartels, Oromo Religion: Myths and Rites of western oromo of Ethiopia and Hillarie Ann Kelly ,From Gada to Islam: The Moral Authority of Gender Relations Among the Pastoral Orma of Kenya, had marked the following . . .” oromos believe that Waaqa (supreme being) created human, spiritual and physical worlds, and he regulates the balance among them from above and from within. Kassam argues that this religious philosophy has important consequences for the oromo vision of the universe as a whole. It has influenced among other aspects of its traditional culture, its political and economic thought, and determined its traditional system of government and modes of production. There are three oromo concepts to explain the interconnection and organization of human, spiritual and physical worlds: Ayaana (spirit),Uuma (nature) , Saffu (moral and ethical codes). Oromos believe that there are spiritual forces between Waaqa and themselves and within them that connect them to their creator. These spiritual forces are called ayaanas or ayaantus; through these spiritual forces, Waaqa created human and physical worlds. Through each person’s Ayaana ,waaqa or waaqayoo acts in the person’s life. Uuma includes everything created by waaqayoo ,including ayaanas. Saffu is a moral and ethical code that oromos must observe to differentiate right from wrong, bad from good ,and sin from virtue. The principles of saffu are needed to understand morally and ethically the laws of nature and society and to live accordingly. Magarsa asserts that Saffu ” constitutes the ethical basis upon which all human action should be founded ; it shows that which directs one on the right path; it shows the way in which life can be best lived.”

    5: CULTURE

    By nature all peoples of the world has language, history, culture and many other unique identifications which distinguishes one ethnic society from the other. The oromo population was relatively highly trained in traditional skills. Until their conquest by

    The egalitarian Gada system which is characterized by advocating the belief that all people should have equal political, social and economic rights has influenced every aspect of oromo life.

    Oromo nationalism and the Ethiopian discourse by Asefa Jalata states that “oromoness manifests itself in oromo cultural practices. The oromo cultural movement attempts to restore all positive symbols ,values ,rituals and democratic principles so that oromo leaders ,fighters ,activists avoid innuendoes, gossip and rumors that undermine oromoness and the unity of oromo. oromos expect their political ,cultural ,intellectual and military leaders to be examples and models ,hence these leaders need to re assess their cultural values and discard those values that are against oromoness and the oromo unity.”

    Besides these; the marriage custom ,oromo religion and ceremonial songs had a great value in the society.

    Of the cultural practices in oromo society “Eebba oromoo” is one of the most distinguishable quotes I want to put it here.

    This study deals mainly with the history of the Oromo of the area – the Gibe region. It covers a period of three centuries. The story begins at a time when the medieval Christian kingdom of Abyssinia was rapidly disintegrating and ends shortly before the creation of the modern Ethiopian empire. During this long period, the Oromo led an independent existence as masters of their destiny and makers of their own history. The Oromo of the Gibe region lived as neighbors with, but beyond military control and political influence of, the medieval Christian kingdom of Abyssinia. The latter came to constitute only a small part of what today is Ethiopia. The Oromo developed their own cultural, religious, and political institutions which shaped their history and expressed their world view.
    The independent existence of the Oromo was brought to an end abruptly and rudely by the creation of the modern Ethiopian empire during and after the 1880s. The conquest and annexation of their territory not only deprived the Oromo of their sovereignty but also of their history, because the creation of the empire consolidated myths and untruths long held and circulated in the Christian kingdom about the Oromo, who were generally portrayed as people without a history. To set the record straight this introduction considers two themes that are unrelated but each necessary to the understanding of the history of the Oromo. First, the introductory chapter briefly depicts how the Oromo problem is either presented falsely or even ignored in the Ethiopian historiography. The second and larger part of the chapter deals with the Oromo social organization on the eve of their sixteenth-century migration.

    During the sixteenth and subsequent centuries much was written on the military conflict between the Oromo were generally described simply as “the enemies of the Amhara” and what was written about them by the Christian chroniclers mainly expressed the intense prejudice which was deeply rooted in Abyssinian society. Even the enlightened historian and great intellectual of his time, Abba Bahrey, who wrote History of the Galla in 1593 opens his invaluable work with these words: “I have begun to write the history of the Galla in order to make known the number of their tribes, their readiness to kill people, and the brutality of their manners.” Since the time of Abba Bahrey the purported brutality of Oromo manners has been magnified and embroidered with grotesque distortions of history, which depicts the Oromo as “barbarian hordes who brought darkness and ignorance in their train.” In such writings the Oromo were never credited as creators of an original culture, or as having religious and democratic political institutions which flowered in patterns of their own making and nourished their spiritual and material well-being. On the contrary, unsubstantiated myths and untruths were created and the Oromo were arbitrarily degraded to a lower stage of material culture, as people who needed the “civilizing mission” of their Abyssinian neighbors. Although the Abyssinian society has had a fascinating history, to maintain that its elite members had an historic mission “to civilize the barbarians” is nonsense historically. The Abyssinian elite, especially the Shawan Amhara rulers, who laid the foundation of and created the modern Ethiopia empire, had everything to gain in attributing a “civilizing mission” to themselves – it has been the common cry of colonizers. In fact, the new Ethiopian ruling class, typified by Emperor Menelik, the creator of the modern Ethiopian empire, found it necessary and profitable to denigrate the Oromo people, their culture, and their history in all ways great and small. This ruling class especially perceived the danger of the larger Oromo population to its empire. Consequently, the ruling class systematically depicted the Oromo as people without history, and belittled their way of life, and their religious and political institutions. It is not an exaggeration to say that no people have had their history so distorted or ignored and their achievements and human qualities undervalued as the Oromo have in the Ethiopian historiography. Bogumil Jewsiewicki’s observation in his Introduction to the African Historiographies seems apposite.

    Because of its alliance with the state structures, separate from the true needs and concerns of the people, the historiography of the savants is, in Africa as else where, the dominant form by which the past is described. But such an alliance also requires the creation of myths which pretend to be exclusive truths and portray themselves as capable of overcoming all other means of understanding the past.

    Until very recently, Oromo history has been either neglected, as M. Abir admits, or it has been totally ignored, or it has been distorted by prejudice. The Ethiopian ruling class even succeeded in elevating its anti-Oromo prejudice to the plane of state ideology, which was uncritically repeated in the name of scholarship.

    The Galla had nothing to contribute to the civilization of Ethiopia, they possessed no material or intellectual culture, and their social organization was at a far lower stage of development than of the population among whom they settled.

    These words written in 1960, by a well-known scholar of Semitic languages, are a good illustration of such long-held common historical prejudice. A number of other scholars have expressed similar historical prejudice less eloquently.

    These biases derive from several sources. The very presence of a vast and readily available corpus of chronicles and texts in the Semitic languages of the northern kingdoms and chiefdoms has fitted in with the biases of European historians and classical linguists towards written sources; however dubious their contents, texts have been rated as more scholarly than oral sources, “proper” history only existing in writing and records. The northern Abyssinian texts, moreover, were written in Semitic languages of the same family as those used by the founders of the great Middle Eastern religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and enshrined in the holy books of those religions. That, in itself, gave them prestige in the eyes of Orientalists. Further, Oromo, by not being a “written language” was not available to European scholars in libraries; not being a available meant that it did not exist (Tutschek 1844 is an honorable exception). Amharinya, Tigrinya, and Geez pointed towards the Middle East and Abyssinians stressed myths such as the Solomonic legend (which was taught in schools as historical fact) and they played down their Africanness. Christian and Negro were often cited as opposites, as good and evil. Oromo, or Galla as it was called, derived from Black Africa. Further, the study of the north flourished when European colonial empires were flourishing: Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and Portugal also saw themselves as having “civilising missions.” In a way Menelik and his nobles became honorary, if second-class, bearers of the “white man’s burden.” Similarly, Christianity, even of the Ethiopian variety, just had to be an indicator of a higher level of civilization than a traditional African religion which did not have a “book”: Just as in a society stratified by class, the predatory state was at “simple states” of the Oromo.

    Addis Ababa, the capital of the empire, was at the end of the railway line and was the stopping-point for most diplomats and scholars; beyond that was wild bush country populated by wild people and wild game. Certainly foreign travelers, diplomats, and the rare traveling scholar had to set out from the seat of the empire if they wished to penetrate its peripheries. So their own experiences, directed as they were from the center, took on the perceptions of the center, and those perceptions were arrogantly colonialist and Amhara-centered. Such only to destroy the Oromo people’s pride in their achievements , but also needed to keep them chained, with no faith in themselves, their history, and national identity.

    I believe that a true knowledge of the history of the various Ethiopian peoples will create confidence and trust among the peoples of the country. Therefore, it is with this goal in mind that I have endeavored to write an objective history of the Oromo of the Oromo of the Gibe region, but from an Oromo point of view, though I do not neglect the history of the other people with whom the Oromo interacted. Above all, it is a history whose unexpressed message stresses the importance of and the need for building bridges of understanding and tolerance between the various peoples of Ethiopia.

    It is easier to try to persuade a cat not to eat a mouse than persuade Habasha about oromo’s right on their land. I don’t know why some even try. Anyway, if the point is to let the world understand our cause, why don’t we talk to them in ENGLISH? why talk to them in Amharic? No one understands other than someone who knows amharic, we want our exchanges be fully understandable to all part of the worlds. By speaking in amharic, all we “gained” is promote amharic at the expense of oromo nothing more! We can NEVER find a common ground between habasha and oromo!! even if you speak in Gee’z! But at least in order to use the interview to our advantage we must talk to them in ENGLISH only, whenever they want to talk to us. It’s better to use English unless the audience is oromo, and never amharic at all.

    I understand what this well known man is saying. If somebody says this is wrong, he/she must be from amhara tribe. Amharas want us to speak their language, while they let alone speak, they rather hate and try their best to harm any body who is from different tribe. Now I think it is backfiring. Amharas, plz other nations also want unity, but not the way you dream: SUPERIORITY OF AMHARA. That simply cannot happen again in Ethiopia. If Ethiopia has to survive as a country, it should accept identity of all nations amhara being one. Amharas r enemies of nations, nationalities and peoples, languages, identities. I want to live with everybody in Ethiopia, except amharas. Bravo Jawar, Brave oromos. From ur southern brothers. And Jawar keep up fighting for equality of all nations. Those who think they should be superior, and want their culture, language and identity to define us all will hate u, that is for sure. But we love u, 5 star

    I am Oromo living in Finfine. I live with many nations, and share friends from almost each. I like my friends a lot. But I know my Amhara friends don’t like my being Oromo. I strongly believe am Oromo first. Then comes me being Ethiopian, ofcourse if Ethiopia is ready to accept me as Oromo. What I see in my Amhara friends is pure OROMOPHOBIA ( hate and fear of Oromo). They dont comment on what they see or hear of other nations. When they see anything advancement in Oromos, they immediately get NERVOUS. I observed a lot lot more. They don’t have any idea about Oromo ambitions. Jawar speaks from the heart of Oromo. He is showing them what we think. For me his ideas are never new, this was what I always kept in my mind and discussed with all my Oromo friends. Amharas never understand it. But one day, all Amharas will regret for not listening to what we Oromos believe as a nation. I have no hate for anyone. Tigres are benefiting economically, by oppressing others, specially Oromia. But the main enemies of Oromo language and culture, identity of Oromo are the Amharas. Finally any one can say anything in a developed society, trying to silency free thoughts is being afraid of losing. As a moderate Oromo, I can assure you HATING JAWAR’S THOUGHT IS HATING OROMO. Now locate urself.

    I observed that Most habashas are rude. Why you insult somebody for expressing his view. Jawar is clearly stated that he first respect his identity I share the same. I am first Oromo which all my people also share. Before barking to insult which is the characteristics of rude and shallows, bring logical reasons for dialogue that would convince me to deny my identity. Can I be Amhara? No this is natural law. So what is wrong with Jawar.

    You are Qomta Komche. You are coward and can’t call your ethnic group name – Amhara. No body need to go further to find or disclose who you are. Your illogical, unreasoable, debtera style writing is self explanatory. Your fore fathers managed to rule the high caliber Oromo with such a bullshit mentality of yours. Your Aleka Atseme wrote such legend like (…. a UK professor English, forgot his name) kind of ‘teret teret’ that you fabricated in your weak brain/mind and try your best to make it history without any evidence and facts. And yet you claim to be Eritrean. How on earth the so-called educated, civilized Amharas were married to the ‘savage Oromos’? The problem was and still is, you write what you feeland think in your retarded mind as a history. Your relatives in Gojama and Gonder come to Finfinnee/Addis Ababa putting on/wearing unfinished or undry hide & skine or ‘Debeleo’; after a week they put on a regular trouser and on the third week the ‘Shebelaw’ starts bosting that he has civilized/trained Oromo. This is hwo you lived on our land, how you developed your language and culture at the expense of our language and culture. The Shebelaw from Gojam needs only to change his ‘Debelo’ to be considered as civilized as his language is spoken in the center of Oromia under the pretext of ‘Amharic is a national language.’ What Oromos are doing is to get ride of your bad culture, attitude, crook mentality, language, beggars, boosting of your ignorance, backwradness and full of fiction history.

    Jawar you have done a wonderful job. Keep it up. Jawar, being and believing in oneself is one of the most important thing in life. It is one of the healthiest attitude too. I see nothing wrong in saying I am an Oromo First.

    I don’t get it when Yesuf says ” I am proud of being an Ethiopian.” There is nothing to proud of being an Ethiopia since there is wide spread violation of human rights. If he is a proud Ethiopian, what the hell is he doing here in USA as an immigrant? The majority of the peoples in that Empire are second class citizens while the minority is first class citizens. In fact, being an Ethiopian is shame.

    Telling the Oromo people to be Ethiopians is as simple as saying you Oromo people are better off being blind than having a pair of eyes or it is better to have artificial legs for the Oromo people than the natural ones. And we will never accept that. It is pure and simple.

    Speaking Amharic(Komchinga) doesn’t mean necessarily an Abesh/Ethiopian
    Amharic speakers can not represent Ethiopia
    and for your information,Amharic Language is not spoken out side Ethiopia
    very small people understood it as an Arabic alphabet but adopted by the Abesha government as its national language.

    Oromos in Newton’s third law mood

    A wave of ‘I’m Oromo first’ sparkling like a firework in the 4th of July, hitting each continent like the Olympic torch is escalating the blood pressure of Ethiopian minus Oromo preachers. The growing number of Oromo social media springers in deflecting Etihiopianists ‘thesis’ seems to be a game changer for the bemused empire. The force of singling out Oromos (pushing aside the majority is so strange indeed) by the vanguards of Ethiopian Unity is receiving equal and opposite force that peaks in a century.

    It is believed that the reaction is not enough to abort the idea of Abyssinian imperialism cultivated for about a century. But its impact in fostering a conducive environment for the exchange of constructive ideas shouldn’t be underestimated. The good news is that both the ‘thesis’ and the ‘antithesis’ are restricted to computer screen…loolla.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the word Ethiopia is being used by the vast majority of FM, ETV as well as Amharic newspaper journalists. Apart from abstaining in mentioning Oromo and Oromia, they are too insensitive to any national or international achievement by Oromo. Whenever the case is opposite, they preach us all the day nagging with their inflammatory words for a minor accomplishment provided that he/she is non Oromo. Keep on pushing Oromo aside you barbarian journalists!Which generation are we waiting fro when such an old idea is clutched and being immortalized by the educated? We pray for such individuals to enter the phase of their ‘hatred menopause’ early.

    We can see a good beginning from Oromia TV and radio journalists these days in reacting oppositely by applauding for Oromos.

Moreover, your conversation has a lot of controversies, which i think comes from lack of knowledge. So please try to update your self by reading more history books..
    We Ethiopian people are one. when I say this I know you may think I am amhara or tigre..but the fact is I am not either of them. But as any lay man I am accountant by my profession but I think I have more knowledge than you in regarding public relation..With this speech you are not gonna go no where. I am from Addis Ababa but I live in canada now..but you I don’t think so you know Addis very well..As I grow up I live with every kinds of tribe no one has such a trash ideology like you. You live in U.S.A so you know people from every nation they use English language as their office language that makes the job smooth and Makes the economy first in the world. Same thing in Canada as well..Everyone who settles here becomes one and works as one..But your Garbagae ideology makes the few uneducated oromo people to disintegrate and lost in hatred. Let me tell you this, to this your garbage ideology no one gives a single second to listen to it in Addis or in Ethiopia as a whole..I am definitely tell you that no one knows who you are you are not gonna do nothing 100%.In general In my opinion you missed a big part in your knowledge you are full of hatred and i think you were abused by some one who has a big inferiority complex in his life time..To the ethio tube journalist i love you so much,,,I am proud to be an ethiopian my self,,,Jewar believe it or not Ethiopia lives forever..victory to the TPLF. after I saw your nonsense conversation I am a pro to woyane,,I am woyane (TPLF) after this..tnx to converting me

    Jawar Mohammed’s Journey of Education: An Example of the Promising Success of
    “the Qubee Generation”
    (By Hambisaa Soolee)

    The young Oromo hero man who challenged the “Ethiopianists” utopia this year attracted the attention of many. Looking into his the physical appearance, I thought he had an expertise of at least a university lecturer of the middle ages. I was very surprised when I knew that he is a young man at the end of his 20s. This told me that I already had a university degree while he was still in grade 9. What did I do for my nation? I don’t count at all. But this fresh boy bravely voiced the silenced voice of the oppressed nation across the world.

    I said above, Jawar’s heroism has caused many Oromos to roar for their nation and to defend “Oromumma”. And I was asked by many to write his life history in short. But when I approached him, he answered “It is not a time to write my life history now. Before me, many heroes who died for the Oromo cause deserve that. The time to write my history may come in the future.”

    Jawar said that out of sincerity. But our longstanding cult of venerating heroes after their death must be changed after now. Our heroes should be honored while they are in life. In this regards, I promise you to come up with a short history of his in near future. For now, I draw his time line of education as follows.

    1997- A completed primary education in his how town, Dhumuga, Arsi Province
    2003- Completed High School in Adama
    2005- College diploma from united world Asia college, Singapore, (he won scholarship and learned two years there)
    2009- B.A. in Political Science from Sanford University, California, USA
    2013- B. A. in Political Science from Columbia University, New York City, USA

    What do you observe? He completed his primary education after Afaan Oromo became a medium of education in Oromia. That means he is a member of the “Qubee Generation”. A man that attacked the blind “Abysinian” hegemony decisively is a member of the “Qubee Generation”. Isn’t it interesting?

    Jawar torched the light of heroism for the youth. We hope the “Qubee Generation” will spread this light of “Oromumma” throughout the world.

    Great comment by Megersa, i believe in greater Ethiopia and hate ethnic supermacy. My uncle was oromo who believed and died for greater Ethiopia, sometimes i wonder what he would say the so called juharawis comment , shame on you guys. Minilik was oromo, haile selassie was oromo who did many things for not only Ethiopia but for all black race and by the way it’s not oromos struggle for haile selassies fall but all Ethiopians, don’t take it away from all opressed people.

    By the way, I am erytrean , thanks we’re out of Ethiopian mess…

    but for the record: I read a book written by a professor in UK (English , forgot his name) , in which he explained that when Amharas met the oromo people, they were impossible to communicate with, pagan, with no religions, worshipping animalas and tree, and that they were complete illiterate…he also explains that Amhara people did a lot by educating them and it was so difficult for the oromo people to live their savage lifestyle…but millions adhere to Amhara group and converted to Christianity and married eachother …so this is past , leave it behind and try to leave together …your commun enemy is the woyane tigre…not Amhara, my message to Oromo, don’t stupid..

I can assure u again all Oromo, whether christian or muslim, they have no compromisation of the three main pts mentioned by Jawar mohammed. Again for your information. the oromo struggle(the latter called OLF in 1974) never started by Muslim Oromo rather it started by Christian Oromo in late 1930, pls read history ok. dont be narrow and try to refer and read history ok.

Welcome to the club. We Oromo nation, have zero hate for all Ethiopians, Our only Question is we need our own share of economy, political power, culture, language and representation in Ethiopia at the same time these should have to apply for all nation and nationalities with transparancy and in a democrat way.

    What an idiot this moron is. If anything that was imposed on Ethio/Oromo people it would be Ethnic Federalism. Even every county (wereda, Qebele) has its own history, economy, and some unique features around the world but that doesn’t make it country. The same ethnic federalism has failed us for 22 years because it only favors certain group. Ethnic brain washed fools can only bring deadly wars based on territory, religion and so on just like what we saw in Rwanda but this one can only be more deadly since there aren’t only 2 sides to this. With that being said with democratic Ethiopia every politician should present their ideas and the Ethiopian people will decide what system will be best to bring equality, justice, freedom and democracy which are the questions of Ethiopian people. Setting up what kind of system isn’t really the problem but setting up those 4 things is what is difficult.

Let me tell you one thing I have been to borena guji arsi and other oromia regional state area and it is no different to amharas. some are nomads that live following their cattle some others walk with no shoes wear dirty clothes and the like. this applies not only for oromos. for most of people live in rural areas of Ethiopia.
    conclusion you are just hater. too blind to see plank in your own eye while you talk about speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye.

    The AMHARAS came to the Oromo land because of Famine. Still they are living under poverty, 75% of their people still do not have access to food, and cloths. The country called Ethiopia is well known for famine just because of the AMHARAS. They pertained to be superior while most of their society is starved to death even today! Let us chaise this poor people from our mother land. We are suffering because of this poor, starved nation. I was in Gojam for holidays last year still they don’t have shoes on their feet, they cut off their hair because of their sanitary problem, like ‘qimal’. Fuck you Amharas! Poor people no food, no education, just gura bicha………

    Mr. Hater, so what’s your point? Where in the world did you get the facts about Oromo? here’s my suggestion if you are enthusiastic and eager to learn about Oromo history, I’d recommend you to research more, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. A little knowledge is dangerous, don’t you dare try to tell what’s better for Oromo, you only know what’s best for you, and let the remainder people choose what’s best for themselves.

No wonder why haters are lately bad mouthing about you lately. People hate, because they lack your flavor. People usually talk bad about others when they find no one is interested on listening on what they have to say.

He is political analyst he has to learn to use effective and non inflammatory words. I don’t expect him to make everyone happy but I expect him to be consistant. We already paid many price from ethinc federalism. What we need now is unity. We don’t want from anyone to separate us learn from Obang my brother from Gambela stated “we all are Ethiopian. Please learn from South African forgive and forget learn to work together. We did applaud you only when you speake unity but not now. But we still believe you are one of ours so please learn from your and other mistake and let’s work together. One love.

Jawar is the only open minded and talented person. He talk real. He has no hiden agenda like our old politicians. We need this brellient man. I see some TPLF agents and our backward politicians are delebrately negating Jawar with their false and hiden propaganda. Jawar is my first as usual.

Do we need to kill Christian to free orommos ????? all oromoss are they Muslims???? So if not what do the Christian orommos said about this issue??? So damn !!!! Now that tells us his motive… I don’t care if he is orommo first or whatever he said but I believe should be Ethiopia first then his ethnicity… Anyways I am Christian I don’t support Muslims massacre to get Christian freedom… Coz that doesn’t work in this century.. Hard to say he is a terrorist but if he gets the opportunity he might do some crazy shit in that country…. Coz he spoke his mind already.

    For those evil Habasha and their fellow who are post comment this interview of Jawar Mohammad
    Still Habasha/Abyssinians are not awake from sleep, and they are dreaming about their empty, fake, and wounded unity. Why they become mud if issue of Oromo people arise? Why they refuse to belief the crime done by their grandfather and ask excuse? Why they make only themselves intelligent? Why they think as only their idea is right? Why they don’t like to pay attention the question of majority? Who give them the country called Ethiopia for those fake Amhara? Lazy are always lazy? We know each other thanks for our 100 year tolerance we got a lot of experience we know your evil thinking and killer behaviour. How lazy insult intelligent? Who are you have the ability to comment Oromo intellectual? Please get out from Debtera education and see the world and follow Oromo scholars to bring equality and freedom for nation and nationalities of that country. By no means you cannot compete with Oromo people intellectual, even if you recreated. So, please listen Oromo intellectuals if you want to keep this fake country together. And first understand Oromo people question carefully rather than pushing to a single issue separation. Also, don’t undermine Oromo people question and don’t use old strategy division and fabricating false documentary film, which died with your evil Minilik and hayliselasie and renewed by your brother wayyaane. We well understand the world and we will struggle for our freedom forever, anybody cannot stop us. Whatever drama you create we will struggle for our land freedom. Even if we will not remove evil wayyane we will transfer our struggle for our son and grandson. No end until we ensure our land free from evil bogus, which are hides their dictator idea under fake unity. Jawar speaks this single word; if a single Oromo boy, girl, child and elder got a chance like him can tell you the reality than him by 100 times. Therefore, it is the time to rethink and go back to your original place and name Abyssinia by leaving our land and fake name Ethiopiawinet. May be you are thinking Oromo are with us except OLF. Don’t fool yourself. Only foolish Abe Tokichew and other few individuals are with you. Oromo become alert, don’t sleep like you by following evil thought and reading Dabtera Bahre puzzle. We never ever for get the blood of our heroine people!!!!!

Habasha- politicians, news reporters and the people, why they ask quotations like someone who has ability to listen or find common ground? These people will not understand anything. One thing the the Habasha people need to know is that the Oromos are not straggling for the revenge, they are straggling for justice. We will not gonna do what the habasha has done to us because I am 100% sure no Oromo has the same mentality as habashas. The Oromo farmers are better than the habasha politicians because they grow up hearing about the gadaa system not killing

If you ask one christian oromo, I am sure he or she will not have the same attitude like you. Ethiopia will will win. Sheme on your low thinking mind. Minilik was Oromo but you want to make him other race because you are low mind thinker. we oromos are proud Ethiopians, you will not represent any oromo group may be you do OLF. You can take Eritrea as an example, seccession is not a solution for democracy.

    What an idiot this moron is. If anything that was imposed on Ethio/Oromo people it would be Ethnic Federalism. Even every county (wereda, Qebele) has its own history, economy, and some unique features around the world but that doesn’t make it country. The same ethnic federalism has failed us for 22 years because it only favors certain group. Ethnic brain washed fools can only bring deadly wars based on territory, religion and so on just like what we saw in Rwanda but this one can only be more deadly since there aren’t only 2 sides to this. With that being said with democratic Ethiopia every politician should present their ideas and the Ethiopian people will decide what system will be best to bring equality, justice, freedom and democracy which are the questions of Ethiopian people. Setting up what kind of system isn’t really the problem but setting up those 4 things is what is difficult.
