Middle-Eastern Americans and Minority Religion

Henriquez, Demi; Smith, Raymond Arthur

Although the Middle East itself is almost entirely comprised of Muslims, Middle-Eastern Americans are actually predominantly Christian. Because the Middle East is very homogenous, it would be a common perception that most Middle-Eastern Americans would also be Muslim. However, only about 25-30% of the Arab-American population practices Islam. Both Jewish-Americans and Christian Arab-Americans outnumber Muslim Arab-Americans.
