Iran is a multi-religion and multi ethnic state. There is no reliable censor to determine the religion and ethnic population that constitutes Iran. Today’s Iran does not represent the old Persia it has been argued that a civilization cannot survive without a culture and its religions. A Unique civilization needs unique laws, the Old Persian religion and its laws were dead. The contemporary Iran laws are the Shiite religious laws and their culture is an Islamic culture. They evaluate their action with the Shiite religious value, all Iranian are not the Shiite.
The line which divides the Iranian population is the Shiite sect against the Sunni Muslim. The religion divide is much wider than the ethnic and linguistic division in the Middle East. An experience in Iraq has shown that the religion loyalty is much stronger than the ethnic loyalty. The Iraqi Shiite has conspired with non Arab Persian co-religion in order to eliminate the Iraq Arab Sunni. The Iraq’s Arab population shares language and cultures, history, the population is divided into two major sect of Islam and they cannot tolerate each other, they have taken to the arm to eliminate each others. Shiite and Sunni divide is not confined into the Iraq
Most modern states protect their population from external and internal threats regardless of their religion, ethnicity, colour, and class. The Iran borders are not shield to protect the Iranian citizen from internal and external threat, the state itself is the biggest threat against the Baluch and others, and on the other hand Iranian regime is willing to risks everything that Iranian have in order to protect the Lebanon and other Shiite around the world.
