Egyptians : Arab or Not?
I had an Egyptian friend and we were having a conversation once about Moubarak and politics and I referred to him as being Arab and he acted really offended. He said he was not Arab and that Arab men are weird and that Egyptians are a separate race entirely. I haven't ever heard other Egyptians say this,has anyone else? Are there any Egyptians on this board? Any opinions?

Egyptians are Eqyptians. They are a race on their own. Much older than the Arabs.

Ok, but don't most Egyptians consider themselves Arabs?

No. But there are many Arabs among them.
The same with Iran, they are persians and not arabs (of course some are), they even have their own language, farsi.

Re: Egyptians : Arab or Not?
Yes, I know but I still believe the majority of Arabs consider Egyptians to be part of the Arab race. Palestinians consider themselves Palestinian and Jews call them Arabs?

Maybe society should just stop giving into British Imperialism and call these by their real names....Egyptians, Assyrians, Phoenicians and leave the Arab term for the real Arabs ie Saudi Arabians?

Re: Egyptians : Arab or Not?
most arabs, are called that but that is because they speak their own very differentiated dialect of arabic, most aren't real arabs, most north africans are berbers, most lebanese are phoenicians, most syrians are aramean, most palestinians are aramean also. somalis are considered arab as egyptians in the arab world and somalia, but in the west you never hear of somalia being called an arab state, because the west just sees black people and considers them african.
