So maybe to make my previous statements more accurate I should say we have a large Middle Eastern Population. South of Nashville I mostly meet Persians and Egyptians. None of the Egyptians smoke Hookahs and most of the Persians I meet do and I find that odd for some reason. Probably because Egyptian hookahs are so popular. Any way it is still surprising that there aren't more Hookah places. Though I am finding now that almost all of the discount tobacco places have some Hookah stuff albeit a small selection. But it can be found.

Sorry didn't mean to misspeak.
Arabs are a Semitic ethnic group while Arabic is is their language. Arabs have a wide variety of indigenous religious affiliations so it would be a mistake to make generalizations in that area although to you your credit you have not done so. Kurds and Persians are not Arabs and the later are not predominately Semitic in genetic or cultural terms.

Still, some debate exists about the cultural unity provided by the Arabic language as a result of widespread diglossia. In this sense Arab cultural unity faces the same challenges that German nationalism faced during much of the Imperial era. If you are interested in this sort of thing the writings of Sati al Husri are highly recomended.

Oh sure. I am always interested in where people come from. Things are changing around here so quickly you never know who is here. Either that or being the southern United States as it is there may have always been a large population and everyone just called them Mexican. LOL. Not much concern here for accuracy. Anyway my point is it is interesting how few Hookah places there are. Though I suppose there are probably areas where there are more that I just don't know about. It isn't like you can just look up Hookah shop or anything like that. Though we have one grocery store here with several flavors of about 4 brands of tobacco. So that is kind of cool.
