A publication of the North Jersey Media Group Inc. contains an interesting article, entitled "Many Arabs define themselves more by religion than ethnicity", on the relationship between Arab and Muslim identity. One of the respondents notes, "Islam is a priority for me.... It comes before my ethnicity. Islam unites me with people of different races, nationalities, different cultures."
The article states that this is a sentiment shared by others, even though Arab-American identity remains strong and has been recently bolstered by the opening of the Arab American National Museum in Detroit, Michigan (see previous posts).
