Why join this club?
‘After 9/11, Arab culture needs to be identified to the community as loving and peaceul. People should get involved to understand the Arabic culture, language, social heritage, music, and basically to get well-introduced to their Arab-American fellow citizens. And we make an amazing falafel sandwich,’ Abuljebain said.
