Turks and Persians are the least Islamic people in the Near East

Reader comment on item: Turkish-Iranian Rivalry on the Rise
in response to reader comment: Turkey vs Iran is *The* Struggle

Submitted by Cyrus (United States), Sep 18, 2011 at 12:22

In Turkey one can find Turkish youth hailing their Pagan Gods, bowing to "kill all the Arabs", likewise in Iran, you'll find angry Iranian youth throwing around Roman salutes calling upon Zoroaster to guide them in the extermination of all Arabs. Iranians and Turks resent Arabs, some even despise them. Perhaps in the majority they may be Muslim, but significant numbers of them are becoming Atheists, Zoroastrians, Pagans and other "nationalist faiths".

The new generations of Turkey and Iran are bold and nationalist. This is what the Middle East needs, to shrug off the backwardness of the Arabs.
