My Studies & Explorations: from J. Leclant & M. Rodinson to the Oromo-Amhara Divide, through Egypt’s 25th Dynasty, Pre-Islamic Yemen (Himyar), and Gregentius of Taphar

What follows is a long response to the messages that an Oromo academic and friend sent me via the messaging section of one portal; as he expressed his admiration for my knowledge and in-depth understanding of numerous critical issues pertaining to many different fields of sciences, I felt obliged to describe extensively the purpose and the circumstances of my postgraduate studies, underscore my differences from the other students, highlight my confrontation with several of my professors during my postgraduate studies in Paris, and in the process raise key problems of academic methodology, present the true dimensions of the Oromo-Amhara divide for the colonial academia of Western Europe and North America, and expand on several key periods of historical upheaval either in Ancient Egypt or in pre-Islamic Yemen.

I removed from my ca. 10000-word answer every part and element that would serve to possibly identify my friend, because this would endanger his career and life.

By its nature, this lengthy response takes a biographical character, because I don’t only focus on what, when and with whom I studied but mainly on how and why. As thematic biography, it presents indirectly but transparently my moral approach to scholarship, exploration, study, knowledge and wisdom. To lesser extent, it reveals the paths and the outlines of my investigations, also presenting how from liberating myself from the shackles of today’s decayed, corrupt and terminating world in order to best assess and acquire the supremacy Ancient Oriental Genius, I was able to inculcate myself with the Ancient Oriental world conceptualization, principles and moral standards in order to examine today’s world with the criteria of the only archetypal humans – those who were still able to recollect the circumstances of the Creation and the abhorrent occurrences of the pre-creational Non-being.

This is what my studies, explorations, contemplations and ruminations have always been: a permanent process of spiritual effluxion and influxion. It has to do with Soft Waters and not with Air; or like my Assyriologist professor Jean Bottéro used to persistently repeat, with Ea and not Enlil.

But when you make the equation of Ilu (Sumerian: DINGIR) with Allah, with Whom should you associate the original Sumerogram? With Ashur, with Anu or with Apsu? I am afraid that only the 600 Anunnaki will respond to this question – to those who will manage to reach them in the extreme depths. Until then, the entire Mankind is totally impotent, as it has been held captive, and all the rest does not matter.

Response to an Oromo academic and friend about my studies and professors 

My dear friend,

Thank you very much for mentioning my name and speech/publication in your pioneering article for which I congratulate you!

Apologies for the delay with which I respond to your three messages for which I also thank you! I already noticed your fourth message!


Thank you very much for your admiration and compliments for which I also express my gratitude, although late. It is my firm decision and I always implement it: when I need some time to plainly respond, I never respond briefly and quickly! I am not an imperial Chinese mandarin or a miserable EU/US administrator to ‘expedite’ affairs; I never do this! I hate it, I despise it, and I disdain it. I am the master of my time, and the man has not been born who will make me change my mind and erratically accord less time to a letter that deserves a longer response. To what extent can this happen? I will give you an example.

A US-based Oromo medical doctor and epidemiologist (by coincidence!) wrote to me in late September 2020 an email, asking me how I would consider the chances of Egypt supporting consciously and systematically the struggle of Oromos for national liberation and independence. His email was brief; no more than 10-12 lines. My response arrived late – again! I started responding in November 2020! How long was it?

Well, it consisted of five parts; each of them became immediately an uploaded article; and all five articles -that are nothing more than just my response to a 10-12 lines- email total … 37000 words (!!). They are going to be soon published in an independent book!

Personally, I would find myself ashamed to respond in 5-10 lines to that guy, who happens to be the younger brother of a Wollega friend and academic with whom I exchanged many emails as early as 2006! This situation has nothing to do with the correspondent; it is about me, about the topic of discussion, and also about how I react to the surrounding environment.

Back to you now! Your messages prove that you don’t know me and this can happen, even if you visited the parts of my, not recently updated, CV that are the pages of this blog:  This can also happen even if you read the quadripartite online interview that I gave to a California-based Christian Oromo scholar back in 2004; he had been monitoring my texts and my responses in passionate discussions that were then published in an online forum where an extreme polarization had taken place between Oromos and others from one side and Tigray – Amhara Ethiopianists from the other side. Of course, I sided with the former. In that interview, I was offered the chance to speak to some extent about my life, studies and researches, and you can find all four parts republished as one unit here (of course, 35000 words in total!; the part about my background is the first): I still remember myself sitting in a Sidi Gabr (district) Alexandria Internet Café (located on the Corniche – at the seafront) during the weekends and writing it, while watching the Mediterranean Sea in my break time! It was August and September 2004.

You are “captivated” by my “rich experience” and my “rich knowledge” and thank you for that, but you should not! In my response, I will offer you some insightful biographical details, describing personal choices and habits. I will also narrate some colorful events from my studies.

In the past, instead of using the term ‘Orientalist’ to describe myself, I was writing under my name the following: ‘Egyptologist, Assyriologist, Iranologist, Islamologist’. I did not add more, although I could, because I am also a Sovietologist and a specialist on Russia, Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia, a political scientist, and an economist. There were several people, who expressed either curiosity or skepticism as regards how one person can be specialized in four five or more different fields.

Several pernicious Amhara and Tigray participants, after they noticed that I rejected their evildoing and I denounced the tribal tyranny that they had imposed on numerous Cushitic, Nilo-Saharan and Bantu nations across the colonial state of Abyssinia, started deriding my numerous academic titles. More they advanced into it, more I revealed about their barbaric past and their evildoing! And this story went on and on and on, until some hysterical guys among them started asking others to kill me and even to have me hanged in Tahrir Square (long before the notorious events of the so-called ‘Arab’ ‘Spring’ took place in that ominous location)! It was extremely amusing to an extent that you cannot imagine! Death? My death? Who cares? Death for a noble cause is the most honorable exit from this world and the most augural transience to the Hereafter.

However, the original question about one scholar’s many titles is always valid and very normal. There are indeed very few people specializing in even two fields. A simple answer to this question, as far as I am concerned, can be obtained through a careful reading of my CV:

If you scroll down (after the first half of the web page) and reach the unit ‘Education’, you will see a very analytical presentation of my studies at all levels: secondary, graduate, postgraduate, and doctoral. You will find out the names of the universities that I attended, the years of my attendance, and the topics that I studied. You will even find (section 5) the names of my professors during my postgraduate and doctoral studies – in many different countries.

Of course, you will ask simply “how all this”? This is what I will reveal to you now.

In fact, anyone can do it; surely one person can be a fully accredited specialist in 4, 5 or 6 branches of Humanities or in other sectors of the science. Suffice it that he wants to do it – or that he needs to do it. This situation marks a at times chaotic difference from the rest. And as you can guess, a totally different purpose of life is usually sought after by the people who differ so much from the rest. This is exactly what I intend to reveal to you right away.

I. My Difference from the Rest: Postgraduate Specialization in 6 Different Fields

As all people know very well, pursuing postgraduate studies or preparing a Master’s degree takes seminar attendance of 6-10 hours per week for two years and the submission of one (Master’s degree) thesis. You are a historian or an archeologist with a graduation (BA) and you are an Egyptologist or a Classicist with a MA or MPhil.

Well, as far as I am concerned, during only my 3-year postgraduate studies in Paris (1978-1981), which was only the beginning of my postgraduate studies, I attended seminars for 63-65 hours per week (during a week of 6 working days). I was the student, who ran daily from 7:30 am until 10 pm to classes and universities. The rest of the time, you could still find me either in libraries to ask/pay photocopies or in the metro, buses and taxis, when I was moving from one course to another. No cafés, no restaurants, no cabarets, no bars, no discos, no friends, no cinemas, no theaters, no girlfriends, and no free time. (And certainly no football matches, because I find this barbaric act and paranoid pseudo-game as a vicious and devious English invention to destroy the human character. Playing or watching football is totally inhuman and utterly self-disastrous.) When arriving back home at 10:30 or 11 pm, I still had to study and read either books or photocopies until 2 am. I never slept more than 4h30 or 5 hours per day, except for weekends.

In my vacations, of course, I spent the time differently, but my ‘vacations’ were rather explorations, travels, and visits to important sites, plus -of course- night life. But I never slept at 3 am after a nocturnal explosion without waking up at 7 am in order to climb up mountains and visit sites and monuments. I surely spent time in hundreds of 5 stars hotels in my life; but I was never a useful idiot wasting time on the beach and in the paranoid, self-disastrous, and evil modern habit of sunbathing. I am a very good swimmer and I can swim or sail in the rough sea, but I detest and do not frequent organized tourist beaches.  

II. A Major Differentiation from the Rest: I never studied in order to find a ‘Job’

There is another, perhaps even more important, difference between me and most of my friends and mates of those days; back then, I sensed it too, but -I must admit it- only vaguely. Later, in my 40s, I understood it very clearly. And I thank God, who helped me find my path easily. The others, the useful idiots, studied only to obtain a ‘paper’! These are the miserable wreckages and the ruined humanoids who ‘work’ now in today’s useless universities of the West, i.e. all those disreputable institutions of darkness, forgery and deliberate falsification that emit billions of tons of pseudo-academic garbage and intellectual contamination with their monstrous lies, which cause genocides, civil wars, conflicts, oppression and persecution of numerous subjugated nations worldwide, as well as disaster, misery and calamity to all. For them, their degrees, certificates and diplomas were more valuable than the Quran, the Gospels, the Torah, the Avesta, the Ancient Egyptian holy book of the Amduat, the Hittite holy book of Ullikummi, and the Assyrian-Babylonian holy book of Enuma Elish combined!!!

All that these lowly and execrable humanoids wanted when young was just to obtain a paper in order to validate a nonsensical, disgusting and nauseating career as mendacious bureaucrats, duplicitous functionaries, inhumanely elitist apparatchiks, ludicrous fanfare employees, money-producing devilish rats, anthropomorphic dogs (like rabid Madeleine Albright and Jendayi Frazer, the Rastafarian mistress of dozens of thousands of filthy men and monstrous Satan-worshippers), hypocritical and evil administrators, pseudo-academic slaves who can teach every type of nonsense that serves the criminal Western system, ambition-driven liars who -for the sake of a professional promotion- could sell their mothers as prostitutes in the bazaars of Mozambique, mask-wearing hyenas for whom the destiny of a nation matters less than their wife’s newly bought shoes (like those of the disreputably Turkish whore Emine Erdogan that cost 10000 dollars!) and foolish political clowns.

This was what most of my friends and mates opted for or -in the best case scenario for them- what they were dragged into, because of their lack of significant purpose in life and due to their calamitous lack of reaction and steadfast rejection of the lie, the false, and the evil. In brief, these people were characterized by a passive life stance that made their lives useless and worthless. And this is my judgment of them: my generation (in the Western World and in the Soviet Bloc) was inferior, valueless and shameful; as unmerited children of better parents and superior grandparents, my generation (and in a wider sense, all those born between 1930 and 1970) should have never existed. 

III. My Firm and Fearless Search of Truth

Why do millions of people not react to today’s paranoia, which imposes Kosovo to be a separate country from Albania, Oromia to be enslaved to Amhara bastards, and Pashtun gangsters, disguised as Islamists and ‘Taliban’, to kill Hazaras, Uzbeks, Tajiks, Turkmen, and Iranians in the fake state of Afghanistan, which is nothing else than “the” Asiatic “Ethiopia”?  

The answer is simple: because of fear.

Contrarily to them, I did not study in order to obtain a paper that I would use to apply for a position in a university, ministry or international organization. My degrees, diplomas and certificates only confirm my assiduity and my knowledge. I studied, because I wanted to discover the original genius of the Mankind and the archetypal spiritual identity of the first and supreme humans, who have remained unmatched, unequaled and unrivaled down to our days: the early Egyptians, Sumerians, Assyrians, and Babylonians. From the beginning, I knew that this would not come through just the studies themselves, but only thanks to my own personal work, which I would undertake after the completion of my studies and following my critical stance toward, and judgment about, my studies and the methods of my professors.

I wanted to discover their worldview – and not to simply project today’s obligatorily imposed (via home, school and university education) but arbitrary and erroneous worldview on the ancient nations and their sacred texts, cosmogonies, cosmologies, wisdom and literatures. I knew already that projecting today’s criteria on ancient nations and on their contemplations, spiritual intuitions, wisdom and worldviews would not allow me to possibly pretend that I “know” them. Such an attempt would only be foolish, and as such useless.

Modern science took a wrong path, deviated, and turned against all moral standards that for thousands of years defined Ancient Science, which is now lost and extremely difficult to reconstitute; modern science currently leads to nowhere, except for lie, falsehood, and deception. These elements bring about the destruction, the death and the annihilation of the Mankind. Modern scholars clearly did not have respect for their object of study whatever this may have been (Ancient Egyptian religions, Babylonian cosmology, Achaemenid Zoroastrian imperial universalism or Kaffa oral traditions).

Instead, they projected their own, erroneous, deceptive, unreal, false and evil worldview on their object of study, and they evaluated the past with their own, genuinely erratic and utterly inhuman, criteria. But by so doing, they only saw themselves in Ancient Egyptian, Sumerian-Akkadian, Assyrian-Babylonian, Hittite, Hurrian, Elamite, Canaanite-Phoenician, Cushitic, Iranian-Turanian, Dravidian and Chinese clothes. Their approaches were uneven and petulant, and therefore their conclusions were confusing, misleading, and distortive. All this sounds eventually general or generic, but it ends up being extremely specified and concerning a multitude of unique points/issues. I will give you an example.

IV. The Oromo–Amhara Divide: a Permanent Litmus Paper for All

It is only because Western European explorers, researchers and scholars projected their viewpoints onto their study objects and they saw themselves in the ‘other’ that 19th c. Western explorers in Africa so much preferred the Amharas to the Oromos: because the Amhara had texts, which are to large extent evil forgeries like Kebra Negast, whereas the Oromos had oral traditions, which were not ‘trustworthy’ for the Western forgers, because simply they could not forge and distort anything in them.

The Western scholars were not able to draw the correct conclusion from Achaemenid Iran; Avesta, the holy book of Zoroastrianism, was never written at those days. Why? Because the ‘written’ can be forged, but the ‘oral’ cannot. How?

This is so because the ‘oral’ tradition means community without segregated elites, which can eventually be divided into several groups that are in secretive conflict with one another.

But the ‘written’ source means a divided community and segregated groups of elite, which ceaselessly ‘write’ their ‘own’ (so: fake) version of the past or their own worldview or their own cosmology or their own eschatology.

All religious wars are initially conflicts among monks, scribes, priests and authors of different versions of texts. But for this to happen, secluded orders and secretive societies must exist among the others, the gullible members of a divided society. Every secret group is a cancerous tumor and a crime against the Mankind. And this is what the Western European nations have been for two millennia: deeply divided societies in conflict about differently written or interpreted sacred texts. As the Western explorers were unable to implement self-criticism, they automatically preferred the Amhara divided and barbaric society that was based in forgery of written sources. Unfortunately for them, there cannot be secret societies; it is impermissible and as such, it brings the end of the society.

This is the tragic superiority of the Oromos over the Amharas: whereas the Oromos have had a genuine community that shared knowledge, values, wisdom, moral principles, and traditions, the Amharas were led by segregated debteras, who worked in isolation and darkness to forge or at times destroy their written sources and to come up with viciously distorted versions that involved racist concepts and generated hatred and fanaticism. All the others among them lived like animals and waited the debteras to pick up one incestuous gangster after another so that they call them ’emperors’; there has never been any ‘Solomonic’ (or other) dynasty among the Amharas, because the Amharas were genuinely unable to ever imagine (let alone know) what nobility and royalty are.


This is what the Western academics failed to grasp:

Civilization, Humanity and Originality are to be found here (Oromos in community meeting):

but not here (manuscript of Kebra Negast in an Amhara monastery):

True Humanity existed before the invention of the Writing; Writing brought about the lies, the forgeries, the fallacies, the corruption, the decay and the end of the Mankind; and there is no Writing in the Original Paradise or in the Perfect Society after the End of Times


But unfortunately, not one modern Oromo managed to assess in depth the Oromo superiority over the Amhara and subsequently conclude why the English, the French, the Americans and all the colonial forces would never allow the Oromos in peace, would never prevent the enslavement of the Oromos, and would never tolerate an Independent Oromia. That is why not one Oromo can ever discuss, meet or just say ‘hello’ to any English, French, American or any other colonial diplomat, politician, businessman, academic and army officer.

That is why you cannot call the historical Oromo social organization system of traditions and moral values Gadaa … a ‘democratic’ system! It is an insulting and denigrating adjective, as well as defamatory and pejorative. In reality, there is nothing so low and so villainous as ‘democratic’ in your traditional social system! As a matter of fact, Gadaa is a noble and lofty system compatible with a Motii/King ( the true reflection of peaceful communality, transcendental wisdom, ancestral respect intertwined with Oromo spirituality and Waaqeffannaa piety and cult. Quite contrarily, the outrageously inhuman, sinful and rotten system of ‘democracy’, the world’s most barbaric invention of the uncivilized Ancient Greeks, i.e. the failed students of the Ancient Egyptian temples, involves utmost racism (slaves were considered ‘things’), gender discrimination (women had no rights), children’s abuse, impiety and disbelief, materialism, atheism, and inhumanity. About:

Either in the disreputable, ugly, filthy (due to the lack of sewerage), syphilis-stricken, homosexuality-infested, pedophilia-plagued and cursed city of Ancient Athens or in the modern Satanic realms of US, France, England, etc., democracy is the culmination of inhumanity, rejection of and enmity towards Waaqo / Allah / God, foremost barbarism, merciless cruelty, and excruciating sin. Because they were ‘democratic’, they were colonial – and not the vice versa.

Is it therefore strange that the bastard, pseudo-royal elites of Portugal, England and France preferred and supported the Amharas against the Somalis, the Afars, the Oromos, the Kaffas, the Agaws, and all the rest from the early 16th c. down to the 21st century?


Why don’t you study the filthy story of the criminal pseudo-royal families of these colonial states? No one can accurately count who -among them- may have been filthy homosexuals, who were the queens who ruled alone by having every night occult sexual orgies with groups of men, and who had sexual intercourse with his daughter or her son! This excrement of History and Barbarism is called ‘Western Europe’: Germans were not like this! Italians were not like this! Poles and Russians were not like this!

V. In Great Contrast with the Rest: to understand the ‘Other’, I rejected myself 

So, to return to my studies and explorations, I can surely say that, in striking contrast with the others, who saw in an excavation or in an archaeological site the means of their own profession, I never reached a historical place or any portion of a tract and I never arrived in a location except as a pilgrim and as a suppliant.

I was always well-prepared at the material level (having gone through the scholarly publications and also elaborated my eventual criticism of some of them) and I mainly dedicated myself to the spiritual study of the hundreds of places that I explored. I was able to decompose and assess the elements of every different land: there is no piece of land composed out of only ‘land’; in every land, there are: land, air, soft water, aether (which is the quintessence out of which everything emanated), and some portion of salt. The different composition of each and every portion of tract predetermines the differentiation of the people, who will settle there and make it theirs, from the others.

The Assyrians were different from the Babylonians because the land itself of their original city (Ashur) was different from the piece of land where Babylon was erected. In other words, if the Assyrians settled in another land, they would be very different. And they knew it; their vast knowledge on the matter, i.e. the Ancient Oriental Science of Geographical Determinism, was a major factor of the lives of all Ancient Oriental nations either in Asia or in Africa. The Ancient Egyptians and Cushites – Meroites were very well versed in this knowledge.

Same for the great Meroitic – Oromo migration: the Meroitic priests, who drove you to your location, knew very well what they did. You are the product of the highlands and the plateau of Oromia, and these lands formed you and preserved you as you are. You would be destroyed if you settled in the arid mountains around Gondar; and those mountains affected the Amhara. There is even a Biblical verse about those mountains, but few people care to study it in-depth, although it is prophetic. Not all arid mountains are the same; not all fertile lands are the same; and every land is a particularity.

VI. Colonization: a Sacrilegious Act bringing forth the End of France and England

Unfortunately, all this did not matter for the outright majority of the 18th–19th–20th c. European scholars, who arrived in the colonized lands as conquerors and -even worse- viewed themselves as proud vanquishers of foreign lands, as enemies of the indigenous nations, and as destroyers. The expressed arrogance, enmity, hatred and utmost negativity prevented them from understanding the lands that they invaded and the great nations that they inhabited them. That’s why they were never able to build a pyramid like those of Kemet (Egypt), Cush (Ancient Ethiopia: Napata and Meroe) or Mesopotamia (Sumer and Elam).

They failed to assess that their own lands were inferior to the lands that they colonized and -even more importantly- that their sources (the corpus of Ancient Greek and Latin texts) were inferior to the Ancient Oriental sources that they managed to decipher. In a way, the modern decipherment of so many ancient writing systems, and primarily of the Ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, Elamite, Akkadian, Assyrian-Babylonian, Hurrian, Hittite, Ugaritic Canaanite, and Iranian sources, did not truly prove to be truly beneficial to Western scholarship because of the Western academics’ attitude to ceaselessly project themselves onto the object of their study,

The result was that they deciphered ancient texts only to misunderstand them. This was in fact the revenge of the lands that they invaded; the arrogant invaders in reality failed to reach the level of advanced science that the Wise Elders and High priests of Mesopotamia, Kemet (Egypt), and Cush (Sudan-Ethiopia, but not Abyssinia) and had attained before 4500 years. The exceptional case of Edward Leedskalnin proves that the entire Western European – North American pseudo-science, which started with the unprecedented fallacy of Inhuman Renaissance, is a devious self-indoctrination with lies and paranoid maxims arbitrarily expressed, unwisely accepted, uncritically reproduced, and thoughtlessly extended.

The diverse, disparate and inconsistent tribes that European colonial gangsters fashioned as ‘Ancient Greeks’ never existed as a unity of civilization. The same concerns also the Ancient Romans, although they were a coherent, military nation. The Ancient Romans and Greeks were civilized only when they were flooded by numerous Oriental cults, religions, systems of spirituality, cosmogonies, wisdom, cosmologies, eschatology, soteriology, universal(-ist) imperial conceptualization, and transcendental performance.

There was never an ancient state named ‘Greece’; and all those, whom the European academic criminals label ‘Greeks’, used to name themselves with diverse names, incessantly expressing rancor and evilness against one another. Their misplaced mythology testifies to their delusion and hallucination; and because they knew that they were ignorant barbarians, they went to Babylonia, to Iran, to Phoenicia and to Egypt in order to study for many long years. Do you know an Ancient Babylonian, Egyptian or Phoenician, who traveled to Ancient ‘Greece’ in order to … study? None! Why? Because there was nothing to study there! ‘Greece’ was on the wrong side of the Mediterranean; and the same is valid for the Romans, who are in fact Trojans (Anatolians), who moved to that land.  

With this incontrollable deception in their heads, the Western colonial academia carried out a sacrilegious act of extreme vulgarity and utmost paranoia; they projected their peremptory and delusional worldview onto the lands (and subsequently the nations) that they invaded. Because the Ancient Romans had invaded Kemet (Egypt), the ignorant French barbarian Napoleon was paranoid enough to imagine that he had the right (as a fictional descendant of the Romans) to eventually ‘conquer’ and ‘civilize’ Masr in 1798 (whereas -quite contrarily- in the Antiquity the Egyptians civilized Rome, Greece and the Roman Empire, after they were conquered by Octavian in 30 BCE)

Quite unfortunately for Napoleon, he invaded another land (Masr was not Kemet anymore), he and his scholars failed to understand the wisdom of the ancient monuments and texts, nd he gravely disrespected the land projecting on the Masriyin (modern ‘Egyptians’) his own barbarism, deception, heresy, forgery and falsehood. Consequence of the Anglo-French colonization of Kemet-Egypt-Masr will be the forthcoming African-Asiatic-Islamic invasion of Western Europe, the much needed elimination of the cursed and incestuous French and English pseudo-nations, the final dissolution of France and England, and the confiscation of all possessions of Western European museums, libraries and universities which will return to Asia and Africa. This will be the revenge of the Valley of the Nile – or if you prefer, the Curse of the Pharaoh!

VII. Self-Denial, Understanding of the ‘Other’ through their Criteria, and the Ensuing Benefits

Not only did I truly and wholeheartedly care to understand every civilization by means of their own criteria, principles, standards and methods, but I also managed to use their viewpoints to examine and evaluate today’s world. And since then, I have been repeatedly and absolutely shocked while gradually discovering how inhuman it is.

This is by definition the true, normal and natural path of a student, researcher, explorer and scholar: you don’t study for money, professional position, financial benefit, social promotion, reputation, presence in the social life, and respectability among the ruling idiots, paranoids, gangsters, criminals, fraudsters and crooks. Money is evil and therefore useless; it can only corrupt those who possess it. The only thing you can do, as soon as you have much money, is to pass it onto others and distribute it to the needy.

You study for yourself and for the world; and the world is everything – except for today’s evil elites. Why? Because they are dead and rotten! Contrarily, the study and the exploration are for the alive. And in every historical moment, there are both, people who are alive and past generations that remain alive through the historical sources, the monuments, and the vibrations (meditations, contemplations, emotions and thoughts) that they left for us. Suffice it that you reject yourself and you can live in their bodies! Then, you can assess today’s decayed and terminating world through their eyes! This is the essence of historical scholarship for a man who possesses both, a living soul and a living body: you study to discover the real genius of the past generations and find -through them and on the basis of their principles- yourself. After attaining that level, you can assess and judge today’s world safely, wisely and accurately.

As you can understand, when one really cares about Shorkaror of Meroe, Akhenaten of Kemet (Egypt), Sargon II of Assyria, and many other noble rulers, one cannot possibly care about today’s rotten Western world that stinks disturbingly for all the rest, asking for its utmost elimination and irrevocable disappearance.

VIII. A Determinant Distinctiveness: Opposing Professors who made Mistakes or said Lies

Due to the aforementioned situations, another -also significant- dissimilarity, which truly characterized me, was the fact that I did not imitate the other students, friends and mates, who were credulous, hypocritical, obedient, servile and submissive enough to accept unquestionably everything that our professors said. Those guys finally became the miserable, useful idiots of today’s evil administrations of the Western world. Because they studied having (in their useless and corrupt mind) as final target a position, money and personal material interests, they never disagreed with our professors – not even when these professors said nonsensical lies, made deliberate mistakes, and distorted critical historical sources in order to promote present political interests.    

Personally, ever since I remember myself (at the age of 2 and 3), I always had the conviction that life matters only when in Truth, honesty, rightfulness, justice and normalcy (i.e. the inherent moral code that is embedded in every human as per the Laws of the Creation). I never kept my mouth closed when I heard a mistake, a premeditated forgery or an excruciating lie. There is a supreme rule in human life: “you cannot say lies”. Saying lies is tantamount to killing. By saying lies, you damage a part of the Universe. There is no Creation without Truth. That is why anyone who says lies pays a terrible price at the end; but of course then, it is too late.

So, contrarily to the rest, all those miserable and petty students who feared that they would damage their lives by opposing or attacking (verbally) professors when they were saying lies or eventually making mistakes, I straightforwardly reacted on the spur of the moment, when something wrong or false was said. This concerns you, I mean, all the Oromos, very much indeed! I will give you now two examples that concern you.

IX. My Professor, the Egyptologist Jean Leclant, his friend Haile Selassie, and the fabrication of Fake Ethiopia

The first example concerns my Egyptologist professor in France, Jean Leclant (1920-2011), an academician, who became (1984) the Permanent Secretary of the (founded in 1663) Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres for 27 years (until he died, 2011):

Jean Leclant at Soleb/Sulb, North Sudan

As a young scholar, Leclant became a personal friend of Haile Selassie in 1956, when he was tasked by the pseudo-emperor to found the local Service of Antiquities. At the same time, he convinced Haile Selassie to insist on usurping the fair name of ‘Ethiopia’ (which really corresponds only to Sudan – as land), instead of using for his country the only permissible name, i.e. ‘Abyssinia’. He even narrated to the ignorant and loathed dictator that, in the past, there was an Egyptian dynasty (notably the 25th), which was named ‘Ethiopian’ by the Late Antiquity Egyptian historian Manetho. This was true, but it was not an ‘invasion’, as silly and useless Abyssinian ‘diplomats’ pretend. Manetho’s term ‘Ethiopian dynasty’ concerned, as you already know, the Ancient Sudanese (Cushites) of Napata (today’s Karima), who were invited by the priests of Amun of Niwt (Ancient Thebes, today’s Luxor) to rule Egypt in order to oppose the alliance of the opposite priesthood of Iwnw (Heliopolis, in today’s Matariya district of Cairo) with the Berber (‘Libyan’/Lebu) princes of the Delta. In fact, it was an episode of a terrible internal division that had started at ca. 1080 BCE, so more than 400 years before Taharqa ruled at Thebes of Egypt in what surely was the peak period of the 25th (Ethiopian/Cushitic – and not Abyssinian) dynasty of Egypt.

Leclant was a great Egyptologist, and he was at the time working on his post-doctoral thesis (doctorat d’État) exactly on the 25th dynasty of Egypt; Montuemhat was an incredible figure and an able administrator who managed to survive all the ups and downs of the 670s, 660s and 650s (of the 1st millennium BCE), when thrice the Assyrians invaded Egypt to kick the Sudanese Cushites (‘Ethiopians’) out and to impose their Berber (‘Libyan’) friends, i.e. the various Nechao and Psamtek, who thus formed the 26th, known (thanks again  to Manetho) as ‘Libyan’, dynasty:

Taharqa’s column in Karnak, Luxor – Upper Egypt: the Cushites – Ethiopians did not ‘invade’ Ancient Egypt; they were called by the Theban priests, who were their coreligionists, to fight the opposite priesthood of Iwnw (Heliopolis) and their Berber (‘Libyan’) allies

By saying this story to Haile Selassie and by making the ignorant and idiotic pseudo-emperor imagine that he was the ‘ancestor’ of Taharqa, the strongest ruler of the 25th ‘Ethiopian’ dynasty, Leclant simply

a. ensured that the traditional Abyssinian enmity for the Muslims of Sudan and Egypt would attain a much higher, nationalistic, degree of paroxysm;

b. guaranteed that the then nascent state and modern nation of Sudan

1. would not be named ‘Ethiopia’ (as it should);

2. would be disconnected from their own brethren, i.e. the Oromos and the other subjugated Cushitic nations of Abyssinia;

3. would be dissociated from their own past and monuments (which would be attributed to ‘Nubians’ in order to provide a nonexistent past to the state of ‘Nubia’ that French and English Freemasons plan to fabricate by detaching the southern part of Egypt and the northern part of Sudan); and

4. would be plunged into the colonial cholera of Pan-Arabism and Arab Nationalism that are fake ideologies derived from conscious distortion of History and are unrelated to either the Cushitic Arabic-speaking Sudanese, the Cushitic Beja, the Nilo-Saharan Nubians, Berta and Furis;  

c. made it sure that all these lands and nations would never achieve proper nation-building and emancipate themselves; and

d. prepared them for their future usage (as colonized states) that forthcoming generations of colonial diplomats and academics would decide what to make.

When two nations are entrapped in false identity schemes and the Abyssinians think that they are ‘Ethiopians’ whereas the Sudanese Ethiopians do not know that they are Ethiopians, then the colonial masters have an incredible weapon in their hands: they can plunge the two disoriented and deceived countries, elites and governments into endless wars very easily; just when their military industries need to sell more arms.

So, when you happen by mistake to be in front of nonsensical texts like those below, you must know that my professor produced all that: 


I still remember that back in 1978-1979, in my first year of postgraduate studies, in Leclant’s postgraduate seminar, which was attended by many French, and several other European, as well as Egyptian, Sudanese and other African students, this topic was once raised. It must have been April 1979, when one student referred to the 25th dynasty that he named in French “dite éthiopienne” (so-called Ethiopian), and I intervened to say that this term was confusing. Then, Leclant asked me why this was confusing, although it was in the historical sources (notably in Manetho), and I said that it would be better to call the 25th dynasty ‘Cushitic’ or ‘Sudanese’, so that no one confuses the ‘Ethiopians’ of the Antiquity with the modern state of Abyssinia that is illegally named ‘Ethiopia’.

Taharqa, the most powerful pharaoh of the 25th (‘Ethiopian’) dynasty was a Cushite of Ancient Sudan – not an ancestor to the Semitic Abyssinian tribes of Tigray and Amhara

All were at once taken by surprise, Leclant included (I saw it on their faces), but I continued to the end adding the following: “alternatively, the UN must reject Abyssinia’s new name, force that communist country (it was 1979) to be named ‘Abyssinia’, and also ask Sudan to be renamed as ‘Ethiopia’. I still remember the enormous eyes of a shocked Sudanese colleague; they were open wide! Leclant did not say anything, but his face was apparently disturbed. However, he always liked me and supported me; making great compliments about me to anyone he spoke with, he once said to the Israeli Egyptologist Sarah Israelit Groll (when she asked him prior to my arrival in Israel where I continued my studies with her in 1984-1985) about me “he learns languages like nothing”!

But the embarrassing truth is that Leclant was forging names of countries like nothing.

X. Attending the Seminar of Maxime Rodinson, the French Orientalist

As an anti-Zionist Ashkenazi, anti-Soviet Marxist, and atheist, Rodinson (1915-2004) was perhaps the most famous, the most intellectual, and the most controversial among all of my professors. He did not have the illustrious career and the important positions of Jean Leclant (who was also a director in the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he was supervising all French archaeological missions outside France – an enormous task), but he was an exceptional polyglot, a formidable ideologist, and a skillful academic able to offer vast theoretical background to his interpretation of historical developments. He was a very popular intellectual among all leftist youngsters who happened to originate from former French colonies or anywhere else (Iran, India, Indonesia and Latin America, etc.).

The fact that he, as an Ashkenazi (this means a ‘fake Jew’, but few people understand it) turned against the state of Israel and supported the Palestinians against the so-called Jewish settlers offered him an aura of moral and intellectual authority and the fame of a righteous opponent of all oppressors. Hhhmm! He was a leading figure of Pan-Arabism in the sense that his Marxist worldview ‘had’ to cope with the French colonial interests, and it is very well known that the French gangsters started already in the 18th c. fabricating the fake ‘Arab’ nation in order to regroup numerous, very different nations between Mauritania and Oman into one force that they wanted to use as a proxy. Of course, Rodinson was very correct when opposing Political Islam and all types of Islamism, but his criticism never led to the Truth properly speaking, but to other misconceptions. Here you find a genuine representation of who Maxime Robinson was:

(I also add the following for the list of his publications)

His ‘Islam and Capitalism’ is remarkable in that he trashed all the ridiculous Sharia ‘laws’ (to which today so many idiotic, ignorant and uneducated Islamists aspire), by demonstrating that, throughout Islamic History, the useless and worthless Sharia was not implemented for the sake of Quranic ‘orthodoxy’ or out of Islamic piety, but simply because of dirty socio-economic interests, passion for absolute power, and usurpation of the governance. But then, if for no less than 1400 years Sharia was merely the good Marketing performance of every criminal gangster willing to posture as ‘acting according to the divine law’, why supporting the implementation of Sharia today? It would be idiotic, hypocritical and shameful for a Muslim. Better than any other publication, this book makes it clear that today’s evil pseudo-Muslim politicians, who call for Sharia, want merely to show their filthy interests as ‘Islamic’.

His ‘Muhammad’ was surely Rodinson’s most controversial book, in the sense that ( it generated rage and wrath among all Islamists, Jihadists, Wahhabis and the other idiots of Political Islam, who are all fake Muslims without even understanding it. Even Edward Said wrote a eulogy (and I say ‘even’, because the two scholars did not have good relations, as Maxime Rodinson did not endorse the ardent anti-colonial positions of the Christian Palestinian intellectual. Personally, I find several good points in that book (Muhammad), but I reject it in the approach that it expresses, because Rodinson very often stops being a perspicacious explorer and projects his own considerations, feelings and ideas onto the natural environment out of which Muhammad emanated.

Was Maxime Rodinson the defender of all oppressed people and nations? Surely not!

Quite on the contrary! When it came to the colonial interests of France, he knew how to keep his mouth closed and accept discriminatory, racist terms. He was certainly an academic who could teach in more than 10 academic fields; I attended for three years (1978-1981) his seminars at the famous École pratique des hautes etudes, 4th section (  

His two seminars were a) on the Pre-Islamic History of Red Sea and Indian Ocean and b) unpublished Ge’ez theological and literary manuscripts. The first seminar involved the study of many historical sources in several ancient languages, notably Ancient Yemenite (Sabaean, Himyarite), Syriac Aramaic, Ge’ez, Ancient Greek and Medieval Greek, and Latin. As you can guess, we used to study excerpts from the famous 19th c. monumental series Patrologia Graeca (160 volumes), Patrologia Latina (217 volumes), and Patrologia Orientalis (50 volumes). About:

In the second seminar, we studied several Ge’ez texts notably the Ge’ez version of the illustrious early Christian and/or Gnostic text of Physiologos.

There were about 10-15 scholars and postgraduate students attending the seminar. I still remember a Pan-Arabist Yemenite from Sanaa, two Amhara Abyssinians (pro-royalists and against the then new Derg regime that Maxime Rodinson supported), and except me, all the rest were French and Western Europeans (one Swiss, one English Jewish lady, and two Germans).

XI. Maxime Rodinson took position against the Liberation of Ogaden (1977-1978) and supported the Imperialist Soviet and Cuban colonials against Somalia

I still remember that Maxime Rodinson, the righteous ‘Marxist’, called the very rightful attack of President Siyaad Barre of Somalia on the impermissible colonial relic of Abyssinia an ‘expansionist’ war! I opposed him, because I knew already that the Ogadeni were Somali and that Ogaden was a historical land of Somalia. The Amhara guy, Argaw Makonnen, interfered to say that the Ogadenis hate the other Somalis and that the other Somalis do not want them with them, which was of course a lie. This was quite early, because I started my studies with him in October 1978 and the Ogaden war had just finished.

About the Amhara royalist guy, you can find some his publications here (most in French): and At least, I am happy to notice that now the French use the term “Oromo” (soon, you will understand why!):

Rodinson was evidently and partially pro-Amhara. I also remember that he made parallels between the attempt of Siyaad Barre to bring justice to the Horn of Africa and King Ahmed ibn Ibrahim’s effort to destroy the pseudo-Christian Amhara kingdom of Gondar in the early 16th c., when the Portuguese colonial gangsters managed to sustain the dispersed and defeated Amhara soldiers. I also remember that Rodinson presented the ‘Conquest of Abyssinia’ as a ‘religious war’, which is wrong.

XII. Maxime Rodinson shamelessly speaking about the “Gallas”

On another occasion, I heard a discussion about the “Gallas”. As I was just 22 and I did not know much about the wider Horn Region, I tried to remember what a young Greek friend had told me in Greece; she was born in Abyssinia and she spoke 2-3 local languages, but she had to leave with her family in 1974 due to the regime change. She had the same age as I had, and we were students at the University of Athens, Faculty of Letters. She would stay and live in Greece, but as my plans included long travels and faraway movements, I was avid to learn more from her about the region, because she had already traveled much there; she used to go to Mogadishu and she preferred Somalia that she described in the best possible words (as a far more progressive country), whereas she offered dark pictures of Abyssinia as an incredibly backward and oppressive state. She was in Diredawa, in Djibouti, in Assab, and of course Lalibela, Axum and Gondar, but she used to always turn the discussion to Somalia and how pleasant everything was there.

But Maria, that Greek Abyssinian university mate, had never spoken to me about the “Gallas”! So, I did not say anything in Rodinson’s seminar, but forced myself to find out the response in the available bibliography. There I realized that Maria’s “Oromos” were Maxime Rodinson’s “Gallas”! So, next week, I started with the remark before the seminar started! I asked why they had called the Oromos “Gallas”, stating that their true name was “Oromo” and mentioning some of the books that I had read. We were at the moment of resuming our seats and Rodinson was about to open his mouth and respond, when the Amhara guy, Argaw Makonnen, answered first saying that the real name was “Galla”, that “Oromo” was a propaganda construction, and that the name was not attested in historical sources. He also added that the “Gallas” were ‘restless’ (!) -I still remember his word “agités”- and he ended like this: “in any case, we call them Gallas”.

The strange was not that he responded first (whereas I had asked Rodinson and not him) or that Rodinson did not add anything after that, thus showing that he accepted and ‘endorsed’ the response or that the issue had ended, but that Argaw Makonnen had spoken angrily for what I had asked, as if the topic had to be a matter of dispute and embarrassment. Of course, I immediately found the whole case as absolutely abnormal; I realized that there were many issues of which I had no idea as regards this topic; then, I remembered that few years earlier, in Athens, Maria had told me that many atrocities had taken place in Abyssinia in the recent past (the last 100 years) and I concluded that the entire issue necessitated a vast investigation from my side. 

However, with me, you have to know that you deal with someone who primordially cares much about, and is fascinated with, the Antiquity. In fact, I always find Modern History (the last 500 years) as a less interesting topic. It took me therefore many years to really learn how bloody the formation of the Abyssinian colonial state truly was, and how many genocides took then place in Eastern Africa of which nobody ever spoke openly. My first encounter with the books of Bulatovich (in Russian) that I read in 1991 in Russia was shocking, because his narrative puts everything beyond any doubt. That’s why I popularized his book’s English translation back in 2010 by republishing it in parts and by adding introductory paragraphs as comments; I came up finally with no less than 29 articles that are republished here; this is their complete list:

And of course, as I understood many times in my life, one cannot truly learn in libraries, seminars, museums and universities, but … in situ! My meetings with exiled Oromos in Sudan, with Ogadeni and Afar refugees in Yemen, with illegally displaced Bertas in Sudan, and with many others, Amhara and Tigray included, helped me shape a clear understanding of the entire problem named ‘Ethiopia’.

XIII. Gregentius of Taphar, Prophet Muhammad, Christological Disputes, Jews, and today’s False Narratives about Early Islam

Beyond the aforementioned, I had another clash with Maxime Rodinson in 1980. It was about Gregentius’ Laws of the Himyarites, a text written few years before the birth of Prophet Muhammad by the Christian Orthodox bishop of Taphar (Zafar), the capital of the pre-Islamic Yemenite kingdom of Himyar. Bishop Gregentius was one of the most powerful spiritual heads of Christianity and he was dispatched from Alexandria to Axum only to be further sent to Yemen, after the victorious invasion undertaken by king Caleb of Axum, who had been asked by the Constantinopolitan kings to intervene in Yemen and dissolve the Christian Nestorian–Jewish Yemenite kingdom of Dhu Nu’was.

In fact, at the time, there was a deep Christological dispute and division in Yemen (of which Najran is the northern part) with Nestorians being majoritarian in the South (Himyar) and Monophysites (like the Copts and the Axumite Abyssinians) being predominant in the North. The Jews sided of course with the Nestorians, and although the Constantinopolitan king was Orthodox, he had to side with the Monophysites, because the Nestorian-Jewish alliance anytime anywhere would promote anti-Roman, Sassanid Iranian interests.

Christian King of Himyar

This tormented period (the last 50 years preceding the birth of prophet Muhammad: 520-570 CE) is of the utmost importance for today’s Freemasons, Zionists and Jesuits, because it inevitably predetermines what truly happened in the early Islamic years – and which is totally unknown to the entire world nowadays (or, to put it otherwise, everything that we ‘know’ about that period is totally wrong as result of systematic and sophisticated misinterpretation).  

This inconsistent map shows the main Ancient Yemenite kingdoms and the Axumite state of Abyssinia, but it covers different periods: Qataban ceased to exist at the end of the 2nd c. BCE. The Axumite invasion of Najran dates in the 6th c. CE; the Abyssinian occupation of Najran was precarious.

The events of this period (520-570 CE) are the best proof of who the true followers of prophet Muhammad were; the facts that took place at those days help us clearly identify who the hypocrites around prophet Muhammad were: all those who pretended to be friends, but were indeed vicious enemies. All the disputes, conflicts and ferocious polarizations of the first decades of Islam were due to them; but they have been hidden -down to our times- behind the mask of the follower or companion of prophet Muhammad. However, because all these terrible disputes, conflicts and polarizations did not start in 610-630 CE, but 150 years earlier (becoming apparent and frontal in both, the Council of Ephesus in 431 CE and the Council of Chalcedon in 451 CE), and were spread throughout the Red Sea in the early 6th c. CE, we can accurately and effectively track opinions, stances, considerations and positions over time and thus uncover the true face of several people around prophet Muhammad. In reality, the History of Islam starts with the 50-year period preceding prophet Muhammad’s birth. About:

All the other sources dating back to the early days of Islam are silent, when it comes to critical issues, or have been tempered with. The unspeakable realities of those days are something that today’s colonial academic elites want to keep concealing, as they have been systematically doing after they managed to confuse, disorient and mystify the modern, ignorant and pseudo-Muslim authorities of all the Muslim nations (I speak of the local religious, academic and governmental elites in their totality). That’s why they invented the nonsensical pseudo-theory of ‘literary topos’, a nonexistent concept, in order to deflate every concerted effort to reconstitute the past. Curtius’ nonsensical commonplaces simply do not exist; an element of Ancient Egyptian literature that looks similar to another of the Assyrian Babylonian literature is not truly comparable because within different context, it gets a totally different meaning, sense and place. Thanks to the paranoid pseudo-theory of ‘literary topos’, the Messiah and the Antichrist may be the … same person! It is absurd. About:

But we know very well that before 600 years, at the time of Timur (Tamerlane), things were not like that and there were true Muslims who knew what terrible plots had taken place around prophet Muhammad, being then carried out by those who hypocritically presented themselves as ‘friends’ and ‘companions’: Timur himself knew and Ibn Khaldun knew. The Early History of Islam needs to be rewritten from scratch, and those, who want to prevent this, are not today’s ignorant and idiotic Muslims, but the secretive elites of the colonial countries. This is so because today’s false Islam is so convenient for them: this is the hidden part of the evil and lethal iceberg that you know as ‘Anglo-Saxon – Saudi alliance’; but this is another issue.

After Caleb (named Ella Asbeha: in several sources) killed Dhu Nuwas, the Nestorian-Jewish state in Yemen was dissolved, and Gregentius imposed Orthodox Christianity in Taphar (Zafar) and in Najran as the local bishop. It is certain that he remained there longer than the Axxumite Abyssinian soldiers who apparently were forced out by the invading Sassanid Iranian armies that annexed (ca. 540) Yemen, turning it into an Iranian satrapy (province) like Oman (which had been Iranian for more than 1000 years at the time). It is quite interesting to note that, whereas the Yemenites, who were/are not Arab, rejoiced and accepted Christianity in the period 525-550 CE, the barbarian Arabs of the desert (the tribal pseudo-kingdom of Kinda) wept for the death of Dhu Nuwas: these were later the true supporters and allies of prophet Muhammad’s worst Meccan enemies.

XIV. Polarization with Maxime Rodinson about Gregentius of Taphar

All this is the background that Maxime Rodinson and I (and surely several others in the seminar) knew already quite well back in 1980. As far as I am concerned, I must clarify that at those days I knew the events of that period well, but I had not reached a pertinent interpretation or conclusion. But Maxime Rodinson wanted to deny facts, and that is why we clashed, as you will see below.

The major issue was however nothing of the above; what matters is not Gregentius of Taphar but his books. One of the books that he elaborated was “the Laws of the Himyarites” (who were named in Greek Homerites); this is known among Western scholars as Leges Homeritarum (in Latin translation). Maxime Rodinson spoke very contemptuously about it, but I had already read it, and I defended it greatly. The rest of the participants were astounded; none of them spoke. After a certain moment, I realized that Maxime Rodinson had not read the text itself, which is a great source of information about the Himyarites of Yemen and it does not contravene any data discovered in the corpus of the excavated and published pre-Islamic inscriptions in Himyarite language. I continued narrating the contents and Rodinson continued rejecting all the contents on the basis of modern bibliography (about this historical text) that he had ostensibly studied very well. But his persistence was bizarre; or at least it so appeared to me at the time.

Gregentius of Taphar in 12th c. wall painting from a monastery in Cyprus: named as ‘Gregory the archbishop of the Homerites’

In fact, it was as if there was an evil spirit that wanted to systematically discredit the Medieval Greek text, and to do this, it associated each and every part of the text to a posterior event that have some relation with a part of the contents. This would therefore hypothetically lead to the conclusion that the text was not written in the middle of the 6th c. CE but much later, eventually in the 10th c. (!!!!), by a monastic forger God only knows in what monastery of the Eastern Roman Empire.

The very interesting point is that the text was subsequently translated in many other languages, but there are several divergences between let’s say the original Greek text and the Slavonic or the Arabic translation. The frontal opposition with Maxime Rodinson lasted much time (more than 30 minutes) and not one person was able to prove the text of Gregentius wrong in anything. I must add that among the disciples and associates of Rodinson was Christian Robin, then young specialist of pre-Islamic Yemenite Literature and History ( He clearly had not read the Laws of the Himyarites at the time. About:Григорий_Омиритский

The entry of Wikipedia is a most sophisticated forgery that I would need at least 30000 words to analytically refute; the same is true for the entry about Dhu Nuwas!

Who calls Gregentius …. “Bishop of Ethiopia”??? !!! Of course, the -disreputable and multiply denounced as Anti-Christian Zionist- head of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America! You can surely laugh with this rubbish:

In Slavic hagiography: as Gregory Omiritski (the ‘Homerite’)

Of course, back in 1980, I was 24 and therefore still naïve and unable to discern why all this happened. I remained friendly predisposed to Maxime Rodinson, who used to invite us all to a restaurant for lunch not far from Sorbonne once per year. I even dedicated to him one of my books (published in Greek in 1994), I sent it to him and he thanked me. But by that time, I had already realized why this entire ordeal had happened about Gregentius.

The beginning of the Laws of the Himyarites from a Gaza manuscript

In another text, the great bishop (who died just few years before prophet Muhammad was born) described in great details his public debate with a Yemenite Jew, whom Gregentius was able to refute, lampoon and ridicule. In the debate, Gregentius demonstrated that the Biblical tradition did not stay anymore with the Jews, that they did not actually represent anything except a vicious negativity and an inhuman hatred, and that they had no right to claim anything as regards the Ancient Hebrew religion and the Old Testament. What today’s colonial pseudo-scholars of the Western bogus-universities hate most in this case is the fact that, in addition to his oratory skills, the bishop of Taphar performed in public majestic miracles of formidable spiritual potency, making all understand the Jewish deviate mind, venomous heart, spiritual impotency, faithless materialism, and utmost uselessness.

What did prophet Muhammad add to bishop Gregentius’ denunciation of the Jews few decades later? Nothing! He only reconfirmed that God rejected the Jews and that He deprived them of their earlier status of ‘chosen people’. The extraordinary identity of Gregentius’ and prophet Muhammad’s overwhelming rejection of the Jews fully demonstrates that in fact the religion of Gregentius was not what we call today ‘Christianity’, but what was called ‘Islam’ in the early decades of the 7th c. CE. This only corroborates Emperor Heraclius’ stance toward prophet Muhammad’s envoy, as narrated by Tabari and many others.  

XV. Conclusion

I expanded much on this topic because I wanted to give you some examples of my activities and endeavors as a student and young researcher. One person’s early years predetermine his life, and I have been most happy for it being so. This cannot be seen easily through the lines of my articles, books and publications, but since you so much like me, I had to expand and offer a plain response. I don’t find it either important or rich or emphatic or bold or unapologetic or anything; I find it just mine. I never change and I permanently remain the person I have always been. Always very different from the rest; I have nothing in common with the others, all those whose life is an endless fear of dying.

Thank you for your interest to meet me and for your kindness to invite me to Occupied Oromia! My dear, I am afraid that instead of helping you, I will harm you! I would never like to cause you problems with the government. They know me very well. Any type of academic or personal association with me can be detrimental for you; they may easily accuse you of speaking with the enemies of the state and the government. Personally, I would be ready to come to Oromia anytime. I don’t mind dying for Oromia; I will not be the first and I will not be the last. Dying for a noble cause is the best manner to transcend this false world and enter in the real world whom none can ever forge. But I real worry for you, if the local authorities come to know your relationship with me.

Best regards and many thanks!
