    Check out both Global25 AND Lukasz' K36 PCAs showing that Lebanese and Druze actually plot slightly closer to East Mediterranean populations (Aegean Greeks like Cypriots and especially Western Jews) than to Saudis or Yemenis:

    I think the fact that they both seem to belong to same linguistic, cultural and religious sphere makes many of us to assume that Lebanese are closer to a Yemenite Arab than to, say, a Cypriot or a Dodecanese Greek (or to Sephardi Jews).
    They look intermediate between Sicilians/Maltese/Cretans/Jews and Yemenis.

    I actually think Ahed Tamimi and the blonde Syrian girl look very Jewish and at least substantially Levantine. Again, I'm focusing on facial features, not color. Ahed Tamimi look almost identical to many blonde Ashkenazi Jews I know who have distinctly Jewish looks.

    (I do have a background in visual arts and specifically portraiture, so I probably notice these things more than the average person.)

    What about the argument that Palestinians are Ishmaelites? (according to Christian Zionism) They say that God gave the Land of Israel to the descendants of Isaac and Jacob, not the descendants of Hagar and Ishmael. But where is the proof that Palestinians are Ishmaelites? Because I for one don't believe it. I even once read an online article on an American Christian website written by a Palestinian Christian saying he was confused about his identity and his Christian beliefs, because white American Evangelical Christians had obviously convinced him he was a descendant of Biblical Ishmaelites. Oh, the shame. Yes, this is exactly why Isaac is a common Palestinian Christian surname and not Ishmael. Right.

    I know I'm late to all this, but I always thought North Europeans have large, long, magnificent noses, almost the same length as inner peninsular Arabs.

    a small north euro nose is just propaganda. haha

    Saudis and Highland Yemenis are far from everyone, they are alone genetically, in their own corner.

    even their father was lonely: his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.
