    This logic makes zero sense. Mexicans speak Spanish but they are not Spanish. Brazilians speak Portuguese but they are not Portuguese. Yourself speak English but you are not English.

    Not really, no. They are transplants from Agrigento, Caltanissetta, and Palermo:

    But Arab means one who speaks Arabic natively, the others do not mean that.

    No.
    I was in Malta some years ago and they don't looks like arabs at all.
    For the language it's souns like a latin language with some foreign admixure.

    Does everybody whose mother language is arabic or a language related to arabic have to be considered as an Arab?

    An arabic-speaking Algerian, e.g., must be considered as an Arab, independently of his origins?
