I don’t complain about races. There are no problem with races. There are only problems with ideas, ideologies, philosophies, theologies, cultures, traditions, laws, and government … and demographic distributions (excess size of underclasses in poor countries mean it is not possible to structure pareto distributions economically, create rule of law, middle class majorities.)
For the Arabs, islam was necessary to stop the horrible corruption of the tribal leaders. Unfortunately it became an excuse for expansion which destroyed many more developed civilizations.
If Persians had been successful and the turks not invaded and destroyed persian restoration of the middle east, all would have been fine.
But the persians could not recover. and the byzantines were finally defeated. And the middle east could not escape ignorance and superstition.
Arabs use face before truth. This is very hard to change.
Face before truth, ignorance, and obsession with islam, and externalization of internal conflict is the problem. Time will care for it if we do not have a world war to prevent another empire from rising.
