Reader comment on item: Israeli Arabs: An Existential Danger to Israel
in response to reader comment: What makes the Druze and Bedouins exceptions

Being Arabian has multiple narratives of indigenous identity, that until the Islamification of the Middle East, was diffused into the various tribal lineages that are now represented by the modern versions of the Saudi's, Emirati's, Bedouin, Druze, Aramaic and the almost unlimited strains of the various populations that crossed and crossed the deserts and tradeways of an ancient familial collaboration of mobile communities that as mentioned above, did not coalese unitl reconnecting to the theosophical understanding of the Abrahamic covenant with the God of Mount Sinai. This is where the Islamic contention comes in; therein lays the claim of replacement theosophy. The variations of that ideology are what makes Islam hard to understand, even amongst its own practitioners.
