And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.
-- Gen. 25:18 (KJV)
This verse states that the lineage of Ishmael lived in the area between Egypt and Assyria. That would mean they lived in Saudi Arabia. The Bible lines up with historical texts that say that Ishmael and his sons were the founders of the Arab people. Using that logic, if the Bible is false, then there wouldn't be any Arab people living between Egypt and Iraq.
