Characteristics of Orientalism, Prejudice, and Discrimination Ethics Amy Croall March 25, 2011 The difference between Muslims and Arabs is that Muslims are individuals that adhere to the Islamic faith, and Arabs are individuals who reside in Arabia, regardless of any specific religion. Arab is an ethnicity or race and Muslim is a religious faith (Julita, 2011). One of the policy changes that have occurred is the Justice Department policy change. This allows the FBI to examine Americans without confirmation of illegal behavior, relying as an alternative on a terrorist profile that could single out Muslims and Arabs. According to this new law, the FBI would be allowed to reflect on race and ethnicity when conducting an examination or investigation. Agents would also be permitted to use open-ended questions pertaining to the behavior of American Muslims and Arab-Americans. This could instigate an examination if an individual’s employment or background is branded as “suspect” by government analysts (Ghazali, 2008).
