Arab World

The Arab world is made up of 22 countries stretching from Morocco in the west to Oman in the east. The population is made up of 300 million people and their combined economies surpass $1 trillion annually. On the other hand, the number of books published yearly in the Arab world is smaller than that published in Greece alone. The religion of the majority of people in Arab countries is Islam, but Arabs make up less than one third of the world's 1 billion Muslims - sometimes referred to as the Islamic World.

Interestingly, the majority of Arab Americans are Christian.
