Don't forget Zanzibar in Tanzania. A lot of the darker skinned Omanis are referred to as 'Zangibari'.

The only difference is arabs are filthy rich and indians are filthy poor.

Probably because Arab traders settled in India's ports and left many descendents. The mythical Sinbad was apparently based on a historical Muslim explorer who reached India

Well, in the Levant area and Fertile Crescent in general you will find some people with lighter skin, light eyes, soft features etc. Unlike further south in the Arabian peninsula, this area was ruled by many, many peoples and it is also a crossroad between Europe and Asia and thus there is a lot of diversity and more ethnic groups. So, you could find one person who looks like a northern European, and another person who looks like an Indian or Central Asian.

In the 18th century, they were originally classified as an isolated caucasoid group.  This was changed to Australoid.  The are indication that the aboriginal inhabitants of Japan were Australoids.  The far more numerous Emeishi (metal using civilization related to the Ainu) were Australoid but were overwhelmed by Asiatic Japanese in the early Middle Ages.  A few Japanese from villages in north east Honshu are said to have some australoid features even today.

I think their skin color was the same as today. Some medieval Muslim scholars such as al-Jahiz pointed out that Arabs had lighter skin than Ethiopians. And when I said Bedouins have dark skin I didn't mean dark like Africans. Their skin color is comparable to north Indians. It is made even darker from exposure to the sun.
 
I'm not sure about Bedouins being Australoid. According to wikipedia Australoid features are a large brow ridge and large, portruding jaws. But I haven't seen these features on anyone in the region. Arabs usually have convex "Roman" noses unlike the broad noses of Aborigines or Africans. People with very dark skin are probably descended from slaves. I didn't know the Ainu were australoid though, that is interesting...
 
Many people from Yemen have African ancestry as they have very dark skin, but in isolated mountain villages the people have much lighter skin and even green eyes, which suggests the original people of the region had light skin.
