Isn't it more accurate to say "George is an Arab" ?

It is illiterate to say "George is Arab"; it's just not educated English.

How many "i" is the word Arab supposed to have?? "3a·ra·bi·ii·ii"?

In this word ي is a "y" sound, like in "yes". And it's double, so it is "3arabiyy". There is short "i" vowel before the letter ي written under the ب so ي is a "y" sound.
