"Arabs and Jews"

In his peace prize speech, Obama spoke of war between "Arabs and Jews".

Actually, if you're talking religion, it's "Muslims and Jews", because those are two religions.

And, if you're talking politics and war, it's "Arabs and Israelis", because not all Jews are citizens of a Middle East nation, and not all Arabs are either anti Israel or anti Semitic.

Frankly, when I hear the phrase "Arabs and Jews", it's usually in the context of blaming the Middle East's problems on "the Jews".
