I'm not saying it's something bad to belong to a tribe,not at all. I'm saying it's Arab tribal mentality that often stops them from having an effective unified army or defence,depending on the enemy of course. It can be a problem for them sometimes,especially when tribal infighting makes them forget the good of the country as a whole. Apart from that,I don't know how it is in the countries east of Iran. So I can't say about you guys.I beg to strongly disagree looking at the secret cults in western Europe and private militias in USA but thats the debate for another time.
therefore I see NO difference.
I am a tribal myself. if you see me in person you will dismiss me as a smelly illiterate savage towel head guy who has multiple underage wives and who hates west and Teletubbies.
