    Almost all of those characteristics can be applied to both groups.

    Most Christian and Arab/Muslim Americans are good neighbors, family oriented, devout, law-abiding, have moderate political values, are socially complaint, have moderate and flexible moral values, etc.

    A few people of both groups embrace some of the extreme positions, such as oppressive to women, want religion to be part of government, etc.

    The only two characteristics that are specific to only one group are governed by Biblical law and governed by the Qu'ran.

    I suggest you write your essay pointing out the fallacies of stereotyping.
