Arab Muslims are adherents of the religion of Islam who identify linguistically, culturally, or genealogically as Arabs. They greatly outnumber other ethnic groups in the Middle East.[1] Muslims who are not Arabs are called mawali by Arab Muslims.[2] British historian Hugh Seton-Watson has argued that solidarity has historically been stronger between Arab Muslims than between all Muslims because many Muslims believe that only Arab Muslims are true Muslims.[3]
