Alevism is one of the faiths of Islam. Alevis live in several countries such as Syria, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Kurdistan, Azerbadchan, Lebanon, Palestine. Alevis also speak several languages ​​such as Arabic, Turkish-Turkmen, Persian, Kurdish ...

The question is where are the Alevis originally from? Many Alevis say "I am Alevite" when asked about nationality. But Alevism is not a nationality, it is just a belief.

the Alevis have none

the alevis have no nation. Alevism is, so to speak, the Turkish form of Islam. (by turkish I don't just mean turkey but all turkish countries) today it's a little different many turks have adopted arabic islam! But as I said, they didn't have a country.

Alevism has with Turks

Alevism has nothing to do with Turks. Alevis existed before Islam when the Turks didn't even exist and their ancestors were in Central Asia, where Mongolia is today. In the last 100 years the Anatolian Alevis have been turned into Turks by state violence and terror in Turkey. In the Dersim Genocide (1938) 75,000 Alevis were killed. Later some soldiers said that all the Alevis killed were Kurds and could not understand Turkish at all.

Alevis are Armenians

Alevis are Armenians who wanted to save themselves from massacres. Otherwise they would all be brutally murdered like the others.

Turkish Alevis and

Turkish Alevis and Syrian Alevis have nothing in common except Ali, and it's a completely different religion. About 30% of the population of Turkey are Alevis.
Because the Alevis relate to Ali, they are counted among the Shiites, though
otherwise they have nothing in common with the Shiites. Alevis have their own houses of prayer and
visit mosques very little. Furthermore, they have their own Lent, the
Koran is only seen as a history book, they do not go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Women have equal rights and usually do not wear a headscarf, they have
high moral standards and are very tolerant of other religions. In the
Turkey Alevis are put under very strong pressure and are inevitably counted among the Muslims. The Turkish state does not recognize the Alevis as a separate religious community. All religions that claim to be the right one are by no means. There are many religious communities recognized by God . Remember: God created man, but many people have created a god for themselves.

The Alevites are

The Alevites are originally Kurds. They are related to the Ahl-e Haq and Yezidi. Do some research, you will find a lot in common. Alevites have a Zoroastrian origin.

That doesn't seem right ...

According to the entry, this does not seem to be correct: Most of the Alevis are Turks and Turkmens, a minority are Kurds or Zaza, while others are Azerbaijanis. Outside of these there are also communities in some regions of Iranian Azerbaijan. The city of Ilchitschi (İlxıçı), which is 87 km southwest of Tabriz, is almost entirely inhabited by Alevis.
