Arabs are what the fans of Dundee United FC are known as. The nickname stems from their excessively sandy football (soccer) pitch, which in turn is due to their geology on the East coast of Scotland.
Fans will often dress for the occasion in a caricatured Westernised robe and headdress, although last time I checked abstention from alcohol was not part of the MO.
Anyone who comes from the middle east and north Africa, alot of whom leave all around the world, but orginate from there.
Most of the population is Muslim but you can also get other relgions among Arabs e.g. Christians, Jews and some are ethicists but this is rare.
Seriously like no more than 100 that are alive today are planning to blow something up, and probablly won't anyway.
Don't know, he might be an Arab.
2. Not all people from the middle east are arabs - take for example the turks or the persians (iranians) or the jews for that matter. (people from the middle east are known as semites).
'arabs' refers to a large number (some 250 million) of people inhabiting most of the middle east and north africa that speak Arabic as a language, share similar customs, cuisines and lifestyles, and a more or less common history.
There are arabs of many different races, from black arabs in some of the north african countries to blond haired blue eyed arabs on the mediterranean to the stereotypical tanned/dark featured arab, therefore 'race' is not really a defining factor in terming someone an arab.
Also the term 'Arab' should not be confused with the term 'muslim' as not all muslims are arabs and equally not all arabs are muslims (there are christian arabs and even jewish arabs).
Shame on some of the small-minded ignorant users of this page for the highly malicious, prejudicial and ill-informed views they hold.
2) A generic term in which the average american cracker can safely express their intolerance.
