Thanks for your answer. But a am honestly not sure what is correct, that is why I comment. I find this interesting (and difficult) and maybe others finds it interesting too. What I really would like to know: Is the doctor living in America and has Arabic origin? It seems that in Arabic, the country of residence is mentioned before the country of origin (البريطانيون العرب and الأمريكيون السويديون) while in English (and Swedish) there seem to be no logic. British Arabs are people of Arabic origin living in Britain while Swedish Americans are people of Swedish origin living in America.
