Persians speak an Indo-European language and largely inhabit in the nation of Iran (formerly Persia). If I'm not mistaken, the Kurds are a related group.

Arabs are descended from the native peoples of the Arabian pennisula, and/or speak Arabic as their first or primary language. Arabic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew.

Turks speak an Altaic language and their ancestors immigrated to the Middle East from Central Asia.
