Salam aleykum There is maybe few question about this in the forum, but im a bit confused. Some say Alawites pray to Imam Ali, some say they dont accept the 12 Imam, some say they believe in a trinity that makes them look like a islamic christian sect or something, but honestly some brothers/sisters told me that they are "Shia Muslims" or just a "Ismaili sect" and they practise the same Shia way. Well those myths tell me that seem looks like the same myths against Shia Muslims which mostly are not true. Also I saw several pics from the Al Assad Family which they are praying or Bashar kissing the Quran. Does someone know more about Alawites?
Armenians, Kurds to protest Erdoğan visit to Germany October 30, 2012 - 15:36 AMT PanARMENIAN.Net - A large group of Kurds, Ezidis, Armenians, Alawites and Syriacs from Europe are planning to hold a protest against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s visit to Germany, Hurriyet Daily News reported. Around 10,000 people from almost 50 organizations are expected to attend the rally in Berlin. Ezidis in particular are angry with Erdoğan’s recent remarks in which he used the term “Yezidi” instead of “Ezidi.” They believe that the word “Yezidi” holds negative connotation in Turkey. Aziz Alkış, head of the Ezidi Associations Federation in Berlin said the “Prime Minister looked down on Ezidi citizens” with his remarks. He said they would call on Erdoğan to end his policy in Syria, as well as end pressure on minorities and ethnic groups in Turkey. Noting that the Ezidi religion is not recognized on national ID cards and signified by an “X,” Alkış said it made their faith seem anti-Islamic. Azad Ordughanyan, head of the Germany Armenians Center, said they would call on Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide. “Turkey is still denying the genocide. We will renew our call for its recognition.” The head of the Alawite Unions Federation in Cologne, Hüseyin Mat, said the Turkish government pursues a policy of assimilation rather than accepting all differences. “Erdoğan will tell Europe that Turkey is a democratic country here. We will tell that this is not true.”
