It's not Arabisation, that came later with wahabis. Its letting the beauty secrets of the old die off that is the problem.
Tbh, yeah you are right. Ive changed my mind about some aspects of religion. Religion can beneficial to the development of a country. Even though I'm atheist , i'd prefer a sufi somali state. But i'd put somalinimo over islaminimo .It's not Arabisation, that came later with wahabis. Its letting the beauty secrets of the old die off that is the problem.

its a joke.... don't you see the similarities in what you said earlier and what I said. Nobody is trying to hear the history of a nation you are not apart in. Your Somali, you got no claim to Ethiopian history ( it's the equivalent to the Germans in the Roman empire ) but let's not derail this thread, pleaseThat has been debunked with evidence. Both Ge'ez and Proto-geez originated in Ethiopia, along with monumental south arabican writing.
Both also predate all Semitic languages in the ME (not including Assyria).
The only reason why Europeans originally pushed this narrative was because they thought we were too advanced to be African...which says more about the rest of the continent.
Are there any more pictures taken by this particular photographer?Northern Somalis is not only Dir, Isaaq and Madhibaan. We are forgetting Dhulos and Warsans. G. Revoil took some old pictures of those communities.
