In brief: Family History

Your family history (colon cancer, colon polyps and even breast/ovarian cancers) are more important than your ethnic background.

In brief: Not necessary

Unless you have a familiar/ hereditary trait that put you at a higher chance of getting polyp like familial polyposis coli, gardner, etc there is no evidence to show that a middle eastern is more prone to develop colon polyps.
I hope my answer is of help.
