1- Gulf states (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Yemen, Iraq)

2- Sham Countries (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine)

3- Egypt (I think Egypt has its own characteristics and rich culture)

4- North African Arab Countries (Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia)

5- Other African Arab Countries (Comoros, Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti, Mauritania)

Remember, one of every four Arabs is Egyptian
