During the current 6-month period, FAC continued to emphasize to the international banking community in the United States the importance of identifying and blocking payments made by or on behalf of Libya.

 Scoop: Ramzy Baroud: The Stifling Absence of Arab Voice
According to the Western reading, the Arab peoples have been always been lumped into one category, mostly negative, that fails to see the cultural uniqueness or divergence of many of its groups.
Arab intellectuals and their narrative also seem absent from the imaginary civilizational clash — as some portray it - of which Arabs and their collective cultures are being defined and redefined, skewed and tainted to serve an ultimately political agenda of a few.
The Arab factor, as represented by its intellectuals, seems either completely absent or consumed with irrelevant scuffles in a time when more than political and economic boundaries of their nations are being aggressively redrawn.

 Saudi Aramco World : Flags of the Arab World
Despite these new additions to the "Arab Revolt" grouping, it is still true that no other category of Arab flags is so widespread as that of the Arab Liberation Flag, versions of which now fly over seven nations.
For in Arab flags there is the story of islam, of foreign incursions and domination, of struggles for independence, of the Arabs aspirations to supranational unity and of their enduring love for historic lands.
The previous Arab Liberation Flag symbolism was retained, but added to it was the commemoration of the Sudan's own large black population in the black stripe, and the green triangle's symbolism of fertility and Islam.

 Arab American Institute - Not Quite White
Testimony for the regional category (Middle East/North African) with ethnic subgroups (Arab, Iranian, Turk, Cypriot, Assyrian, etc.) was presented alongside support for a distinctly Arab American classifier--a mixed signal cited in the OMB report as a lack of consensus over the definition of the population in question.
Ancestry data on Arabs have received mixed reviews: the undercount (in 1990 the aggregated Arab origin populations did not exceed 900,000) drew concern as did the obvious drawback that the question only appeared on the long-form survey that is sent to a 17% sample of the nation's households.
Though overshadowed by the mixed race issue, the Arab American proposal continued to be raised in the final phase of the federal review: a series of public hearings sponsored by the OMB around the country during the summer of 1994.
