“[…] But—-Iran’s not in Asia!” she said. “Iran’s in the East,” she added in a deeply confident tone. The East. That word, I think, is the key to all myths. Where is it, this legendary East of our fantasies and dreams and hatreds? If you’ll admit that the earth is round, then you’re always east or west of someone else. And even if you won’t go by these silly looking-glass games, even if you wish to base your observations on Greenwich, then why aren’t Australia and New Zealand a part of it, too? So the East is not really a geographical fact. And maybe the term “Eastern countries” has more to do with a religious definition—-maybe what we really mean is that they’re Muslim countries. In that case, is Bosnia an Eastern country? But then again, even if Bosnia were located further east, what in the world does the expression “Muslim countries” mean anyway? This notion would take us from Bosnia to Somalia, and from Morocco all the way to Indonesia—-and such countries are to be found on three continents: Europe, Africa, and Asia. Is that to say that Saudi Arabia and Malaysia share the same culture? Talking about “Muslim countries” means, in the end, that the one and only factor defining the culture of a given society is religion. That is one factor, indeed—-but it is certainly not the only one. Talking about “Muslim countries” also means shrinking dozens of countries down to one single abstract concept… so as to better classify them. […]”
