Arabs backing Bush

The NY Times has an article this morning about wealthy Arab Americans who are contributing large sums to the Bush campaign. This is counter to Bush's loss of support among the Arab population in America generally, down from 83% in 2000 to 38% today.

Funny enough the first two donors mentioned in the article are Iranian. I had thought that Iranians were (mostly) non-Arab. I thought they spoke Farsi and not Arabic.
