When I wrote last month about western stereotypes of Arab men, several commenters, including WeAreTheWorld , suggested that Arab stereotypes of western women would also be worth exploring. Just as Arab men are stereotyped and pigeonholed in the west, western women hover somewhere between myth and fantasy in the Arab world. Like the traditional orientalist image of the harem , Arab views of the contemporary western woman are also highly sexualised. In fact, many Arab men, particularly those with little contact with the west, have this fantasy of western women that comes straight out of Playboy magazine or the grainy images of pirate pornos. In this view, western women are oversexed, promiscuous and have revolving doors in their knickers.

Arab people, or Arabs, are those people who inhabit the Arab world. Arabs are distinguished from other people on the basis of culture, genealogy, and language. Persian people, or Persians, are those people who are a part or group of Iranian peoples. Iranian peoples are people who speak Iranian languages and belong to the Indo-European family.
Given its location in the Middle East, Muslim majority, and language which resembles Arabic, Iran is often mislabeled as an Arab nation. Read on to discover why Iran is not an Arab country. With the exception of various minority ethnic groups in Iran one of which is Arab , Iranians are Persian. Persian and Arab histories only merge in the 7th century with the Islamic conquest of Persia.
