My cousin (by marriage), Cheryl, was born in the U.S. but her parents and older sisters are from Lebanon. Lebanon is a country in Western Asia, part of the Middle East, and is located in the Arabian hinterland. I assume the language her family and she have spoken in my presence is Arabic, although I've never actually asked her. Her parents' side of her family is Roman Catholic. Regarding ancestry, I have heard her refer to herself and her sisters as Lebanese or Asian-American. I don't believe she considers any member of her family to be an Arab.
