Ethnicities[edit]

List of Ethnicities on the arab league Arabs Only 41 million?! Barbers 57 million? and Egyptians 76 Million? This obviously wrong .. It's should be fixed —Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.205.130.93 (talk) 08:44, 7 September 2009 (UTC)


the Arab people live just in Desert of Arabia

Egyptians are not arab, Egyptian are Pharaons, Copt and Nubian

Algerian, Moroccan, Tunisian, Lybian are Berber or Amazigh

Irakian are perse, Kurd, Babylonian

Syria are Assirian

Lebanon are Phonecian

Palestinian are Aramean

Soudan are Black african


SAOUDIA ARABIE + YEMEN are ARABS

That's all —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.49.93.191 (talk) 17:11, 2 February 2011 (UTC)


Stats source[edit]

I'll get around to it ASAP, but the best place for the stats here would be the . . . Arab League! The Statistical Reports section looks to be excellent and I've confirmed that they've updated the Bahrain census data to 2010.Bromley86 (talk) 20:19, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Ethnic demographics[edit]

This article lists the religious demographics by country, but there is no list for the ethnic demographics by country, there really should be one. Charles Essie (talk) 23:11, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Confusion between Ethnicity / Identity / Religion[edit]

The article suffers from a confusion between ethnicity, identity and religion. For example: -The maronites are a religious group (by definition) -Some of them might identify themselves as descendants of phoenicians -However, they are ethnically arabs (like the majority of people living in this geographical area)

A similar example is the Copts. It is a religious group but most of Copts are ethnically arabs.

Egyptians section[edit]

I removed the majority of this section which was a collection of long quotes by certain figures asserting that Egyptians aren't part of the Arab people and have no relation to them. Obviously this section and the person(s) who wrote it up are trying to drive this POV, while nothing is mentioned of Egypt's Arab identity other than Nasser was an Arab nationalist and after he died Egyptians suddenly dropped the "Arab" supra-identity. Most of the other sections have problems also and should be cleaned up. For the Egyptians section, I made a see also link at the top of the section linking to Egyptians#Identity where the matter is discussed more neutrally (although still imperfect). --Al Ameer (talk) 21:25, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
