    Technically, they are. They speak Arabic.



    Maltese is a dialect of Maghrebi Arabic, which originated in Sicily under Arab rule but is only spoken in Malta and among very old people on Pantelleria today.

    Not really, I guess I consider them their own entity. I dont believe they espouse an Arab identity either

    They're basically Arabic-speaking Sicilians. But because they speak Arabic, they're Arab.

    This is not really Arabic, it's an hybrid language : Italian-Sicilian/Maghrebi Arabic mix. Maltese language is considered to be a Semitic language but it's not an Arabic dialect. Close to but too much Italian/Sicilian in their language.

    Maltese is like Sicilo-Arabic with a Romance vocabulary for 70% as a result of isolation from Arabic speakers. Reminds me of English in that regard (which is a Germanic language with mostly non-Germanic vocabulary and has creole-like features like a simple grammar and a vocabulary from another language group, even though its creole status has never been proven and its irregularities are very un-creole).
