Pretty straightforward. What is an Arab? Where did Arabs come from? Are modern day Middle Easterners necessarily Arab? Are there simple answers to these questions or is it one of those constantly debated questions like what kinds of Colts did Delta use in Mogadishu? :p

Let's try to keep the Iraq war out of this. This is simply a historical lesson, not a political debate.

An Arab is anyone from the Middle East, or has Middle Eastern heritage. Someone from Turkey is probably not an Arab, someone from Iran is not Arab but Persian, but someone from Saudi Arabia is Arab. LIke Yod@ said, Middle East and North Africa.

What about is that thread? Everybody knows that Arab is citizen of Saudi Arabien, but many ppl calls Egyptians, Iraqians etc. Arabs.

I think if some Arab see this thread, he won't be happy...

Oh man... What would you do if I make a thread: Definition of Swede (55° 40' N, 12° 34' E = Sweden, right?) Or thread Definition of American...

I just think it isn't needed and it is a bit rasist

but the term arab does not refer to a nation , it pertains to the whole middle east region
