Are you kidding me? Why the hell would we join a broken Somalia? As much as we love you, we love our sovereignty even more.
Myself a Djiboutian Somali, I consider the Afar or Arab Djiboutian closer to me than someone from Hargeisa or Muqdisho. Djibouti has nothing to gain from joining Somalia!
And never will Djibouti be divided along ethnic lines! The Somali south and the Afar north will always be united. Djibouti is the only country in the Horn of Africa that doesn't have any secessionist movement. We fight for power but we never question the unity of Djibouti.
So thanks, but no thanks.

You are right my friend! You are white french like your colonial masters. After all before European colonization Dijbouti were Somalis but when the French invaded you all magically turned into white French. This is what the dijoubis believes.

Ok so first of all if that is the case i am sorry for my ignorance.
But i ask this question because it seams like Djiboutian people are in their own world. I mean i have never met some one form Djibouti call them self's Somali. i know yall speak Somali and Djibouti use to be a Somali state colonized by the French and then it got its independence first, that is why Djibouti is its own country today. But i also always asked my self why didn't Djibouti join back Somalia when the rest of Somalia got its independence and it was really nice?
It is weired to have an other country where the majority is Somali speaking people but don't call them self's Somali. Don't get me wrong i respect and love Djibouti as my own people but i just want your thoughts on this.

How can a Somali consider him or herself a Somali? You are most definitely retarded!!

We are somalis and afars and yemens by birth but our common name is Djboutian. that is the answer of one of your questions.
the other why they did not join with Somali Republic the answer is as follows:
When they saw how Somaliland is swolled and that Ex-Rulers of Somali and its people are not interested to see Great Somalia,Djibouti decided another path.

Although we're djibouti ( as in culture, dialect, our passion for life) our ethnicity is somali. Djibouti is a country of tolerence and a palce of refuge but we will never deny our history. And the reason why we're still seperate is that the somali attitudes and the djibouti attitude have chabged and separated pver the years

I am in mogadisho and i am somali . It is not doubt that somali and djabouti are same in each side especially the language.

do people of djibouti concider them self's somali?? what kind of question is that? which one of them. afar? issa? arab? or somali this is the land which most of it owned by afar and some to issa. but not to the last too. yes issa my think as they are somali that is their agreement. but definetly Afar are not somali. so make ur question specific. but let me advise u one thing u should try to bring the rest of somali together and try to have one peaceful somalia in east africa. insha allah it will be one day. and it is oke about dj. issa and afar will talk about it. i believe it is beautiful as it is when it will have democratic leader. insha allah.

If you go on the internet and look at historical records, studies, and anything remotely related to science it states clearly that ETHNICALLY Djibouti is made up of Somali's (~60%) and Afar's (~35%). Ethnically. However from a nationalist perspective they have decided (mostly, not all) to refer to themselves as Djiboutian's because of the fragmentation that occurred during colonialism and the lack of a Greater Somalia (which the Somalia constitution was built to work towards before it failed...). Therefore the answer to this is both yes and no. They are Somali by blood (mostly) but by birth they are something else. I'm sure some loser will probably say he/she somehow knows better than people who have spent their whole lives studying the region and that some obscure history they believe in makes them less Somali, but no.

Regardez moi qui parle ?? mon cher ami faudrait que tu te ressources .Les afars sont plus dignes que toi et ils sont chez eux ,c'est pas toi qui est entrer clandestinement hier qui les dégagera.Justement,pour te donner un peu de leçon d'histoire géographie que t'a pas pu te procurer vu d'ou tu viens ,80% du territoire djiboutien appartient au peuple afar (triste réalité mon pauvre et sa ne changeras jamais ),il se trouvait meme a zaila donc ignorant que t'es et tu le resteras fallait pas debattre laisse les grands s'occuper de sa !! Pour conclure rien de plus inutile que de vouloir prouver quelque chose aux imbéciles.

Djiboutian people don't speak somali as a somalian and its the same think when it comes to somalian expressing themself as djiboutian. We may have the same religion but not the same tradition as djibouti is a mixed race country. So I can't agree with someone telling me if ur from djibouti ur completely a somalian. I'm italian and my mum is djiboutian she is arab and ethiopian . So where do I fit to be a somalian . In fact we djiboutian are so multicultural that we speak many languages and that's what makes us djiboutian (multicultural) not as some kind of rejective somalian saying we are not because somalia is in trouble etc...
