1. Ethiopia and Ethiopians
Ethiopia is name of the country is a country in the Horn of Africa, officially known currently as the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, with 9 regional administrations; which are Tigray, Afar, Amhara, Oromiya, Somali, SNNP, Gambelle, Banishangul-Gumuz and Harari, and also two city administrations (i.e. Addis Ababa and Dire Dhabe).

Abyssinian, Habesha people and things from parts of Ethiopia and Eritrea, formerly known as Abyssinia; Abyssinians are Amharas and Tigrains only, with a total population of 21,528,512 only, which is 29% of the total population
3. Abyssinian vs Ethiopians
Therefore, it’s not necessary that, all Ethiopians to be Abyssinian/ Habesha, and the opposite is correct, which means Amharas and Tigray people are Ethiopians. Abyssinians or Habesha people are originally Caucasian by race and Semitic by ethnicity. They migrated to Horn of Africa from somewhere in the Mideast or Caucus. In 2006 the Beautiful Ethiopian Lady was from Gambella, and Meles and his team said “Queen of Habesha”, but Gambella people said; sorry we are not Habesha, but Ethiopians.
4. The Abyssinian Crimes in region
There are human rights and humanitarian crisis in Ogaden, Oromiya, Afar, SNNP, Banishangul-Gumuz, and Gambella Regional States. There are also Somalia, Southern Sudan, Eretria, Kenya, Sudan, and Djibouti with serous relationships with Ethiopian governments, especially with Woyane regime.
All nations or local communities of the country hate the Abyssinians / Habesha people. This is because of past and current crimes and genocides conducted leaders from Abyssinian, Habesha people against the locals / indigenous people in the country. This affected the relation of the neighbor countries with Ethiopia, and most of the countries in Horn of Africa region have bad relationship and misunderstanding with Ethiopian governments; both current and past governments. ‘
However, the current EPRDF military operations, mass detention and community displacement, block of aid and trade, ban of aid going to the needy people in the Ogaden, Afar, Oromiya and Gambella regions will complicate the situation. However, there are questions about reactions of Abyssinian, Habesha leaders and professions on this issue.
Therefore, are big role required by Ethiopians as wells as Abyssinians / Habesha people to build the image and relation of Ethiopia and as well as Abyssinians / Habesha people with the other people and countries in the Horn of Africa!
