Before we go on, the difference between Arabs and Muslims must be clarified. Arab is a term that refers to an ethnic group made up of a member of an Arabic-speaking people who share a distinct culture. On the other hand, Muslim is a term that refers to a person who practices the religion of Islam. The fact is that some, if not most, Arabs are Muslims. However, some are not. Many Arabs, especially in Lebanon, are Christians. On the other hand, some Muslims are Arabs, but most are not. Another clarification should be made. All Palestinians are Arabs but not all Palestinians are Muslims. In fact, some of the Palestinian leaders such as Hannan Ashrawi and Edward Said are Christians.
