Depends on what you mean by "arabic", I guess.

What's called arabic numbers in Europe (where I live) are 0, 1, 2, 3,  
etc. But a friend of mine who spent one year in Syria showed me what  
the numbers used there are, and these are completely different  
numbers. So I really wonder what the term "arabic" used in Europe for  
0, 1, 2, etc. refers to. That's why I spoke of "so-called "arabic"" in  
my message for these numbers.

Now, if I interpret your message correctly, you mean Persian numbers  
are the same as those used in Syria, for example?
