Let’s make it clear: Arab means people of the Arabian Peninsula specially the inhabitants of region where Islam started. On the other parts of the Islamic world where Arabic is spoken the nations went thru Arabization however they were originally not Arab. In this context e.g. Syrians or Egyptians are Arabized and not Arab concerning origin.
No, I don’t defend them! How can I defend those who have destroyed the fame of a civilization what brought enlightenment to the world! How can I defend a destructive power! How can I defend those who rule with injustice and thousands of thinkers, scholars, journalists are in prison just because they don’t praise their names!
Since MBS (Mohammad bin Salman) is the crown prince in Saudi Arabia (2017) the number of journalists in jail has been tripled.

Here you are a story from the past how Islam worked e.g. in the time of Umar bin Khattab, the second Caliph after Mohammed died (peace be upon him).
When Umar bin Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) was Caliph, the Caliphate received some pieces of cloth from one of the Islamic states. Umar distributed these pieces of cloths evenly; he gave everyone one piece of cloth. One day when Umar stood to give a khutba (lecture), he had two pieces of those cloths on. Umar then spoke and said, “Listen and obey everybody!” Salman Farsi (May Allah be pleased with him) stood up and said, “We will not listen and we will not obey.” Umar bin Khattab asked, “How come?” Salman Farsi said, “Because you have given each one of us, one piece of cloth, and we see that you are wearing two pieces of cloth.” Umar bin Khattab did not respond, but signaled his son Abdullah bin Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) to stand up and respond to what Salman is saying. Abdullah bin Umar stood up and said, “My father is a very tall man, very well built, with wide shoulders. One piece of cloth would not be enough for him, so I gave him mine.” Salman Farsi said, “Now we will listen and obey.” This was the standard of justice that the companions of the Messenger of Allah (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) had. The leadership was held to account and the people would not accept any injustice from their leaders. They knew that on the Day of Judgement, being a follower of a corrupt leadership will not be an excuse.
Behold, they will dispute with each other in the Fire! The weak ones (who followed) will say to those who had been arrogant, "We but followed you: Can ye then take (on yourselves) from us some share of the Fire?
Those who had been arrogant will say: "We are all in this (Fire)! Truly, Allah has judged between (his) Servants!" (Quran 40:47-48)
