A Romanticized Definition of Arabs

Arabs can be defined as a group of people who share a common heritage and culture and who have evolved over the Millennia with dynamism and the wheel of history. Their roots, like Aramaic, the source of the Arabic language, have grown not only deeper and deeper, but have spread wider and further than any other civilisation and, in so doing, absorbed extensive cultural feeds throughout the generations. Nourished by the richness of its environment, its geopolitics with its cultural interactions, it has become like a tree, solid, gigantic and well-anchored, made up of people, history and civilisations.  Its infinite number of branches and seedlings has produced a fascinating mosaic of features, faiths and subcultures that have all contributed to the wheel of civilisation and produced rich fruit.  Their dynamism, vitality and thirst for knowledge and learning has produced the very essence of civilisation but also, at times of difficulties, led to diversities and divisions.  The Arab identity therefore is a sense of belonging rather than a rigid racial code, which in this multicultural era is a positive concept with all the merits to flourish in a democratic multicultural Britain. 

NABA aims to renew and re-cultivate the vitality and dynamism of the Arabs and revive their faith in them­selves for the sake of the future generations in their new land.
