Arab Christians

Arab Christians are Arabs who follow Christianity. The majority of Arab Christians from the Levant, Egypt and Iraq are Melkites and Antiochian Greek Christians. Some of them are believed to have descended from ancient Arabian Christian clans that did not convert to Islam, such as the Sabaean tribes of Yemen who settled in Transjordan and Syria. Arab Christians, forming Greek Orthodox and Greek Catholic communities, are estimated to number between 520,000–703,000 in Syria, 350,000–450,000 in Lebanon, 221,000 in Jordan, 133,130 in Israel and 50,000 in the State of Palestine. There are also Arab Christian communities of 10,000–350,000 in Egypt, as well as in Iraq and Turkey.
