While there are several characteristics that determine whether or not a person is a true Arab, one trait is always evident: a proud sense of being an Arab. Their physical, geographical, and religious aspects all vary greatly; however, the ability to speak Arabic (or an Arabic dialect) and identification with the Arabian cultural heritage are, perhaps, the two most essential elements.
In the modern world, traditional values have been altered. This can be attributed to the pressure to urbanize, industrialize and de-tribalize. Those who have are more likely to emigrate to Western nations like Ireland, Italy or Canada.
For most of the Diaspora Arabs, there have been a greater variety of job opportunities. This has greatly aided their poor living conditions. However, it has also weakened their traditional family ties. There is greater freedom for women to leave the home, fewer arranged marriages, and less social pressure to conform to traditional religious practices.
Ireland only allows certain people to migrate to their country. Many of the Arabs in Ireland are medical professionals.
Arabs who have moved to Western nations such as Ireland can be Muslim or Christian. It is common for Christians to flee Arab countries dominated by Islamists.
Many Arabs came to the West because of war and economic problems in their homeland. All Arabs, especially those with a Muslim background, need a relationship with Christ. They need someone to take the gospel to them in a way they can understand.
Pray that the Arabs in Ireland will find and embrace Jesus Christ with all their hearts.
Pray for Arabic speaking Christ followers to take the savior to others who speak Arabic.
Pray for Arab disciples to make more disciples in Ireland.
