Description of this link: Caught in the Crossfire after 9/11. Arab Americans are an ethnic group who trace their roots to the Arabic-speaking countries of the Middle East and North Africa. This is a link with a wealth of information provided by PBS.
Description of this link: Like all people, Arab Americans are too often described in simplistic terms. Although the Arab culture is one of the oldest on Earth, it is, in many parts of the United States, misunderstood. There are no easy, one-size-fits-all answers. Culture, language and religion are distinct qualities that act in different ways to connect Arabs, and to distinguish them from one another. At the Detroit Free Press, published in the city with the United States' most concentrated Arab-American population, we try to better understand and explain these issues daily. After consulting with others, we offer this guide as a step toward more accurate journalistic portrayals of Arab Americans.
The 100 questions and answers contained herein only touch on the issues. We urge you to give these issues the attention they deserve by continuing to read, to interview sources on all sides and to make a long-term commitment to increasing your understanding. For it is only with understanding that we can practice fair and accurate journalism.

encompasses such non-Arab countries as Israel, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
