I live in the middle east and i have ALOT of arab friends, and they are GOOD PEOPLE. Most of them speak english so i was able to interact with them easily. They are NORMAL people, just like Americans, or people from Britain, or people from Canada, or WHATEVER. They laugh, they joke, they socialize, they go to school, they have jobs ( and let me add that most of them do their jobs WELL), they are NOT terrorists, and just cuz someone is arab, doesnt mean theyre not a good person. Yeah, some people have done bad stuff, like murder, or suicide, or robbery, but every country has that. EVERY SINGLE ONE, OK? Andd I know when you all think of arabs, you picture someone in ur head, wearing some sort of rag on their head, waving a stick in the air and screaming " F$(#$ AMERICA!" I dont blame you. This is what all the (FAKE) news reports say about them, but have u actually met, or spoken to, an average arab? Probably not. So stop judging them, please. Theyre nice people.
" Theyre terrorists!!"
" Nah, hes a nice guy."
" But he's arab"
" Doesnt mean he's a bad person."
" Well... ok"
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.
