This Professor is an idiot. He is more of a megalomaniac clown than a serious academic. Finfine is a name of a small area near fuluha, not the name of Greater Addis Abeba and no terrorist organization as OLF can change it. You tribalism's are sometimes comedians too kkkkkkkkkkk.

Is Finfine the capital of Oman? I couldn't find a country called Oromiya in any geography or history books.

When I go visit my family members around Ethiopia, I have to bring interpreters because they are littered all around and speak different languages.(I hope that helps inform your reading of what is to follow)

Since the introduction of the article said that the first part will be a summary of the Prof. background, I intentionally read the other parts first. That way my preservation of what he wrote would not be clouded. Even though as the Prof. is willing to do with ease, I will not proclaim that I am an expert in such a wide area of subjects (by the way I can't find any other serious schooler that claims to be an expert on this many subjects) I am a learned man myself. I have many contentions with the claims the Prof. makes about what history tells us. My contentions are not just on faulty logic that his conclusions are based on, but that his conclusions are counter to the physical, scientific, and historical history available. Now, he might have access to a secrete reservoir of evidence that is not in the public or academic domain, but that is very unlikely. So before I even read his biographical narration I already was inclined to think that he is nothing but a self promoting self proclaimed expert that in academic circles would be described as a lazy conclusion.
Once I read the narration of his biography I was sure that is what he was because he talked more about what and whom he has worked with then what his work has produced or his methodological tools. Finally, I looked him up in pear reviewed journals and he seems to be absent in that circle. I also researched some of the claims he makes about his background. And that most of them were true in fact but were not as grand as he has layer them out to be.(It is like claiming that you were one of the few people in Germany that spoke out against Hitler in Nazi Germany, when all you did was tell your wife that Hitler was bad.)
If I am wrong on the above please leave me a message. And if the good Prof. reads this, I would humbly well come it if he could give me some citations to academic work that he has done that will logically and scientifically support the many and varied claims he so haphazardly trows around.

It is actually both an Amaharic and Oromiya word. Amharic is a product of Omotic and Gizze languages. It takes its words mostly from Gizze but its structure from Omotic. But what allows it to be rich especially since it is such a young langue is that it has the advantage of being the second language to speakers of the other 90something languages of Ethiopia that it is continually sculpted and perfected by all the other languages.
Sorry to those that want to claim Amaharic for themselves it was invented to serve us all. And everyone contributed to it so it belongs to us all.

Your really slow and dumb. Amharic has lots of cushitic oromo and agaw words, Finfinnee is Oromo.

This city's name is sometimes spelled "Addis Abeba," which means "new flower" in the Amharic language. Empress Taitu named the city, which is also known by the Oromo language name “Finfinnee.” Other parts of the city were called hora Finfinnee, meaning "hot springs."

If every tribe like you recreats a linguistic map in Africa we will end up with thousands of countries. What you call Oromia is just one of these countless African tribes, like Kikuyu, Massai, Ashanti, Haousa and so forth. But we don't hear those African tribes asking for independence after creating their own maps like you. What is happening in Ethiopia is tribalism in action. And we thought it was over after Katanga and Biafra, how wrong we were. Even one tribe somalia never had peace, and you will end up killing each other like them. Your genes or your religions are as varied as other parts of Ethiopia and yet you want to recreat a tribal land? We know that all tribalists are a neo colonialist stooges.

Unlike you Africa Unite is my slogan!!!!!!!!!!

No you're dumb!i ask you again,what does FinFinne mean in Afaan Oromo?
We call it Germany, the French call it Allemagne!
We call it Addis Abeba , the Oromos call it FinFinne!
By the way, Amharic has only Agaw words and not Affan Oromo.

Zemnegede yehuda first be yourself and remain Amara. Amara has nothing to do with emnegede yihuda. You are simply negede Amara and not yihuda. The reason why you Amara are hated by all East African is because you are liers and fabricators. If there is any one who should claim the solomonic line it should be the Tigyans and Eritreans. Because sheba (if she is not Yemen)is tigre. She was queen of Axum. And Axum belongs to Tigray and Eritrea. And yet tigrayans and Eritreans are not claiming zemnegde yehuda. Melse has made some great points about Amaras. "Axum lemara minu new", "Enie yeselechegne yeAmara terte na weshet new" Melse Zenawi P|M of Tigray. Besides Menelik (The so called son of solomon)was born in Eritrea and Eritreans can legaliy claim him. So How can negede Amara claim negede yihuda. No matter what you claim you will remain negede Amara. And negede Amara are products of mix of Oromo and Tigre.
