An Arab is originally a term for a person from the arabian peninsula. During the islamin conquests arabs spread to other areas. Arabs are a subdivision of the semetic people, which includes israelis, not those european ones frech off the boat from russia that call israel home, but the real ones.

Stop saying that arabs have a "rich cultural heritage". There is not one group of people in the history of the entire world that does not have a "rich cultural heritage" and saying otherwise is extremely racist.
Arabs are an ethnic group based mainly in the Middle East.

Also, to point out something else. In the twentieth century, Arab nationalists have been trying to form a pan-Arab state, ever since the Ottoman Empire ended in the Arabic-speaking lands. These have been in the form of countries like Egypt (Nasser), Syria and Iraq (Saddam Hussein), with the Ba'athist party. These people should not be mistaken for Islamic fundamentalists, as they are usually secular and Marxist, and are not Muslim in any way. Fatah in Palestine is an Arab Nationalist group, not Islamic.
He is a secular Arab.

Arabs are those speaking Arabic. They are different races. Indigenous arabs (Yemenites) and Caldanian arabs related to Abraham (Prophet mohammed and Arab jews before islam (eastern suadi nowadays)) and then many other races became part of the Arabic nation after the expansion of Islamic empire.e.g. Egypt.
Caldanian Arabs: Iraqis, Baharna (eastern saudi, histrorical bahrain), Hashimites (the prophet Mohammed);related to Prophet Abraham.

Indigenous arabs: the Yemenites; directly related to YA'RUB the son of SAM the son of Noah (YA'RUB=the first who talked arabic).

The term "Arabs" is a term often used to describe people from mainly Arabic speaking countries. Many un-enlightened people use "Arabs" to define people who they believe to be Arabs, but may infact be Indians, or any number of other nationalities. Commonly pronounced "A-rabs" when the term is intended to be a insult.

corruption of the word arab, which refers to a muslim majority ethnic group from the middle east. arabs are the 4th most decriminated ethnic group in the US, just under blacks, jews, and gays.
just becuase theres a few arabs in this world willing to strap bombs to their chest and kill u and a few dozen around you, it doesnt mean all of them are like that or think like that. as it says in the bible, god loves ALL his children, including the good and bad arabs, the blacks, and even the queers.you shouldnt judge 250 million people based on one guy(bin laden), just as u cant judge the us based on one president
