Dearborn, Michigan, is home to many Arabs who have fled their hometowns for many different reasons be it political or personal, my family included. You have people from all over the region including Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Yemen and, ever since the Gulf War, Iraq. With the number of Arabs over there, the city is bound to adopt the culture. In Dearborn's case, sometimes it seems it was adopted a bit too heavily.
Here are 15 ways Dearborn is more Arab than the Arab world:
1. Argileh all day, everyday. Otherwise known as "hookah"
...Even on the go
In gas stations too ... my gosh
2. Never do they ever miss an opportunity to show off their Arab heritage
3. The term "halal" is used to label almost everything
