The name Arab originally was reserved for the nomad tribes east of Palestine and in the Syro-Arabian desert, but today it is generally used for most of the surviving Semitic peoples who, in addition to living in Arabia, are to be found in Mesopotamia, North Africa, the western shores of the Red Sea, and the eastern shores of the Persian Gulf.
