there is no comparison Turkey is way ahead with Iran,
I dont understand why the debate is turned into persian/Arab/turkish one.
it was all about Iran vs Turkey which i think is waste of time.
i was not talking about rural people. I was talking about young new generations who use Facebook Blogs and have access to world politics and history!naive rural people
Again reality is quite opposite. Propaganda?? Yes, Sure. Wahhabis spends lots of money building madrasa in every corner of Bangladesh, trying to spread their ideology! No presence of Iran or anything else in the country. That proves how simple we are! we take propaganda!easily taken by propoganda
again ignorance! propaganda in 1971?? excuse me! the war took place in Bangladesh! Hell was unleashed upon them, they experienced the war, unlike you common West Pakistanis who had no idea what was happening there! And again mass people joined the war after April-May! The bulk of the muktis formed during June-July! They only joined the war after watching genocide against minorities and secular people during march-April period!this tactic helped a lot during 1971.
Well, in general Turkey is more liked than Iran in most Arab countries, but Iran is still apperciated in countries like Algeria, Iraq, Palestaine, Lebanon, Bahrain, and some what in Egypt. But most people trust Turkey more than Iran because Iran is a Shii country in my opinion. Also, the hate toward Iran increased a lot since Iraq war.
Iranians are fully aware of the fact that any relationship between Iran and the Arab world will always be between Iran and the SHIA Arab world. As you said, Iran has a strong presence in Iraq (pretty much controls the politics in Iraq) and Lebanon and huge support in countries with Shia minorities/majorities. Turkey has the respect of the sunni world. Both countries (Iran and Turkey) want different things and both are getting what they want out of the Arab world. That's all that matters.
This pic for example was taken in Lebanon last year. He (Nejad) probably gets more support in Leb than he does in Iran.
Iran has balls. Turkey has no match.
