    Caucasians, do you see yourselves as closer to Europeans or to Middle Easterners?

    For any caucasian members out there, such as Georgians, Armenians, Chechens, etc, do you feel closer to Europe or the Middle East in tersm of everything? I feel like Azeris, Circassians, and Chechens might feel more connections with the Middle East, while Georgians and Armenians probably feel more apart of Europe.

    Since when? Georgia, North Caucasus for example is closer to Russia, Ukraine than to Iraq. Personally i think North Caucasus is Europe. Southern Caucasus is a category of its own, neither European or Middle Eastern.

    Yes but North Caucasians are culturally closer to Middle Easterners than South Caucasians. And they seem to identify with them as well.

    I do not believe in any middle-easterners north of the Zargos mountains

    I refer Iranians/Persians as non middle-easterners, same thinking for tuirkey/anatolians, same for Azeri, Kurds, Armenians, Georgians

    Caucasus region is not uniform culturally.

    Chechnya, people of Dagestan, Ingushetia are conservative muslims, in some instances radical.
    Northern & southern Ossetia, Georgia, Armenia are Christian. Armenians speak an Indo-European language. Ossetians speak and Indo-Iranian language. Armenian culture is similar to east Anatolian.
    Azerbaijan is a moderate muslim country.
    There are north-west Caucasians such as Adyghe, who are probably have most similar physical appearance to Europeans in comparison to other people of Caucasus. Adyghe are also more similar to Europeans genetically.

    The last 100-200 years South Caucasus was mostly connected to European culturale code via the Russian dominance. Today after the collapse of USSR things are changing and the influence of Near East & Iran is increasing. But the direct influence of Europe (not via Russia) is also increasing.

    Lets think outside the box and change the question like this;

    "Europeans, do you see yourselves as closer to Caucasians or to Middle Easterners?"

    or

    "Middle Easterners, do you see yourselves as closer to Caucasians or to Europeans?

    I'm really curious about your opinions.

    This Pan Middle Eastern agenda hasn't existed since the "recent" Islamst radical political movements. No Armenian, Let alone Southern Russian, Georgian, Circassan would consider themselves the same label with a Jordanian or Saudi. This is the same kind of thinking when Finns and Japanese are grouped together by some strange fetish.
