Characteristics of 2 It is commonly mistaken that all Arabs are Muslim, and all Muslims are Arabs, this is not true. According to Schaefer, Arabs are an ethnic group and Muslims are a religious group. Islam is the religious faith that Muslims believe in, Islam has approximately 1.3 billions followers, a large portion of Muslims are located in the Arab world, so it is commonly mistaken that the two go together. Stereotyping of people and history of the orient is one characteristic of Orientalism. Other peoples views are set in stone and it is hard to change them; some because they have only seen what is in the media or heard from other people. They don’t recognize change or diversity within the culture. Racism is another characteristic of Orientalism.
