Contrasting Ethnocentrisms

Contrasting ethnocentrisms.

One can say that the type of Middle Eastern ethnocentrism noted by many observers as characteristic of that region is formally analogous to the idea of a White ethnostate and the pursuit by Whites of their (very) legitimate racial interests.

But there is a fundamental difference.  Salter has proposed, and I endorse, the idea of Universal Nationalism – that every people have the right to preserve their own uniqueness, both biological and cultural, and this applies to non-Whites as well as Whites.  That’s an enlightened ethnocentrism.

However, on the other hand, Middle Eastern ethnocentrism is characterized by an aggressive dual morality and an expansionist, imperialist mindset.  Thus, one Middle Eastern people strive to be at the top of the human energy pyramid, both parasites and manipulators, those who oppose all nationalism except their own, and those who promote multiracialism and multiculturalism to destroy the West and the White race. Another group of Middle Easterners – and other non-Whites who follow a Middle Eastern High Culture - wish to colonize the West through their mass migration and impose their own civilization on Westerners, both a demographic and a cultural form of colonizing imperialism.  Thus, in contrast to Europeans, the well-known ethnocentrism of the Middle Eastern High Culture is aggressively particularistic and definitely not universal.  Universalism it seems is a trait of the West and of the West only.
