  • Alright kids, today we are gonna learn about the 3 ethnic groups , which are....
  • Arabs, Persians, and Kurds
  • Persians are NOT Arab and do not speak Arabic. They speak Farsi, a dialect of the language Persian.
  • Persians come from Iran, which is the largest Shia Muslim country. In fact, 90% Persians are Shia while only 8% are Sunni Muslim.
  • Persians have an ancient culture and once controlled the world’s most powerful empire.
  • They speak Arabic, a language which originated in the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula.
  • Most Arabs (95%) are Muslim, but there are also Christian and Jewish Arabs.
  • Today 17 countries in the Middle East are occupied with over 160 million Arabs.
  • Arabs are the largest ethnic group in the Middle East, living throughout North Africa and Southwest Asia.
  • Kurds come from a mountainous region called Kurdistan (land of the Kurds), which includes parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey.
  • Since 1990, the Kurds of northern Iraq have maintained a successful independent government, under the protection of the United States. Kurdish troops supported the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 and today Iraqi Kurdistan is a peaceful and prosperous region of modern Iraq.
