Arab? Persian?


Chuck Todd an NBC analyst/news person just appeared on the Martin Bashir show regarding the supposed Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States.

Todd said that there is a lot of competition in the Arab world between Saudi Arabia and Iran.  Apparently Mr. Todd does not realize that the Iranians identify as Persians, not Arabs.  Unconscionable slip up.

Both countries are in fact Muslim.   Iran is 90% Shia Muslim.  Saudi Arabia is predominantly Sunni Muslim.
