Its a very interesting problem to look at.
On one hand you see communities persecuted in their countries. Shiites in Bahrain, Saudi, maybe Yemen.
Sunnis (more or less) who may feel that in Iraq or Syria.
Kurds in Turkey and Iraq and Iran.
Arabs in Israel and Palestine.
And you think its best to give each their own nation. Then you realise this will lead to 1000 years of conflicts. Then you realise that building a multi ethnic fair nation would take longer.
Its hard to figure this out.
