Is ethnicity more powerful than religion?-3
Now this Asian ethnicity is quite diverse and everybody tries to fiercely protect their turfs than ever. They really don’t care if they are white, black, brown, Christian, Arab or Muslim, all they know that they belong to a certain geographical area and they are superior to others in some sense without knowing what that is Israelis think that they are superior because they are the chosen people and the Arabs think they are superior because they have oil and money, and then the Arabs discriminate against their poorer co-religionists because they don’t have money and then Arabs discriminate against other Arabs because they don’t have enough money than others. Even in countries which seem to the outside world as intact are teetering on the verge of collapse. Pakistan is a country based on many nationalities and those nationalities hate each other to the point that they don’t think themselves as one nation but from one province or region. India has multiple ethnicities in it and they are speak several languages but for some miracle reason, India has managed to stay intact and put a lid on separatist movements. In the Far east, the Chinese and Japanese are at loggerheads on some island issue with the rest of the East Asian looking haplessly. The Japanese think they are superior and somehow don’t belong to Asia because of their technological prowess and the Chinese feel superior because of thousands of year of history behind them. Then there are Cambodians, Vietnamese, Thais, Koreans, Indonesian and Malaysian who have their own issue with ethnicities.
