Further, it's really a mistake to say that Arabs in general are semitic people. This assumption is based on the fact that Arabic and Hebrew share some very close linguistic similarities. Due to this and some Biblical references, some thought early on that Jews and Arabs were directly related.

For Christ's sake,

so when I graduated in Semitic studies, I was sold the Brooklyn Bridge???
