Not all are Muslims

I would like to congratulate Nadia Al-Said [Valley Voices Dec. 5] on her fair commentary about Muslims.

However, as a Palestinian Christian myself, I would like to stress that not all Muslims are Arabs (Turkey, Iran, Indonesia and others are not Arab countries) and many Arab countries have large minorities of Christians as in Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt and Syria.

Arab and Muslim are not synonymous words.
