The ancient-egyptians were somalis according to History ::« Again the
representations of the early Puntites, or Somali people, on the Egyptian
monuments, show striking resemblances to the Egyptians themselves. » By
Brian Brown New York: Brentano's[1923] / According to the historian Richard
Pankhurst :"""The Egyptians sometimes called Punt land Ta-Netjeru, meaning
"Land of the Gods," and considered it their place of origin ." (Richard
Pankhurst, The Ethiopian Borderlands:1997)

@Abdirrashid , God study history ,brother . In ancient egyptian "AAR" means
"lion , "AAr" means "lion " in somali . In ancient egyptian language "Hes"
means "sing ,song" and "Hees" means "sing and song " in somali . There are
alot of words .and somali people have alot of similarities with ancient
egyptians . I have seen ancient egyptians women dancing this dance called
"Hello" . if you have facebook account ,I will show you the pictures and
historical facts , Byee brother
