1. Jesus was not an Arab, jesus was a Jew.
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.
The Arabs are a nation bound together by a shared history and culture.
