1- Seljuks are Turks. So you must write as "Seljuk Turks".
2- what does "a tribe of nomads from .." means? Is "Nomad" a nation name?
3- Nomads can not establish states and make beautifull arts.
4- When it comes to Romans or Greeks, you write with their nation names. Even if it comes from Iran, it doesn't mean it belongs to Persians! Or is Islam a nation?... And it is absolutely not affected from an another culture as Persian, like Metropolitan Museum's book or other books inform you!(Right info is: Nizami is not Persian , and yes Oghuz are called also as Ghuzz, which brings us to Ashguz, the name of the Scythians!) and infact Persians learned from The Turks, if we look back in time, you will see that today's İran was till 1925 ruled by Turks, like Parthians, Scythians, Massagetae, Seljuks, Safavids, Afshar..etc . Still 45million Turkish people living in İran.
Instead of "Turkish" they are also presented as "ISLAMIC". Somehow, determination of the political identity of the Turks is Islamic..! Or with false ethnic identity.... The "Westerners" are proudly to say with their ethnics, and teaching also in that way, but when it comes to us, no mention of the Turks, Turkish culture. Whereas, such events are a nation's civilization measure....
Hypocrite and Turcofobia of the "Westerners".
THİS İS TURKİSH HİSTORY, ART AND CULTURE.
WRITE WITH THE NATION NAME!
LİKE YOU DO WİTH "GREEK ART" "ROMAN ART". ETC.
AND ALSO NOT AS "İSLAMİC ART"
LİKE THERE İS NO "CHRİSTİAN ART"!
(Why Do They Not Named Turkish Culture and Civilization?)
