    She’s probably from European Orgin. Some parts of Middle east there simply are Caucasians living there. Their are Caucasians is Iran, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq. Like someone said of Mediterranean roots. I think many people would be surprised at how diverse the Caucasian race is. Pale skin, blonde hair and blue eyes are just stereotypical looks of Europeans.

    On this picture she looks like a sister of Natalie Portman … not ethnically, but genetically the peoples of the Levant are closely related.

    She seems to be mostly white, some people in Palestina are predominantly of white roots.

      Well, Middle Eastern people are Mediterranean.

      They don’t look like ethnic Arabs like the Saudis who have recent African ancestry (darker skin, wider noses, bigger lips).
