Connotation of "Arab man"?[edit]

Based on David Ben-Gurion's use of the term "fellah" in a speech:

"Under no circumstances must we touch land belonging to fellahs or worked by them. Only if a fellah leaves his place of settlement, should we offer to buy his land, at an appropriate price." ~ quoted in Ben-Gurion and the Palestinian Arabs: From Peace to War by Shabtai Teveth (London: Oxford University Press, 1985), p. 32.

… would it be fair to say that this term has a specific (or perhaps just occasional) connotation of "Arab", "Arab man" or "Arab person"? — Jeff Q 14:15, 17 May 2005 (UTC)
