Approximately half of the Palestinian population hold college degrees allowing them to be very successful in American Society. Many own small businesses and others work as professionals in a number of different fields.
The majority of Arab, Palestinians adhere to Islam but some are Christians. They have such a rich history that is rooted in their religious ties which drives how they view the world specifically Israel/Palestine.
