I am a must’arib, which is Arabic word for ‘someone who strives to become an arab’. Historically the word was used for christians in Al-Andalus (its bastard translation being Mossarab), but today it mainly designates non-Arabs who try to assimilate the Arabic language and culture. I’m not as much as an arabist, but someone who wills to study Arabic language and history in a medium-long term. I am Iberian and Catholic Christian, and not willing at all to become anything diverse than what I am. But as someone who feels interested by Arabs and their stuff, (language, history, religion, art, philosophy, and overall politics….) I identify strongly with the word.
