It’s simple really the difference between Muslim and an Arab; a Muslim is a person who worships Islam, and an Arab is a person who comes from one of the 22 states of the “League of Arab States.” I thought this quote from our reading on page 284 explained it all. “…Many Arabs are not Muslims, and most Muslims are not Arabs.” After September 11, 2001, President George W.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
