    He looks like most of the lighter-skinned Ashkenazi Jews*.

    *Yes, Ashkenazi Jews are Levantine too. Sorry, not sorry.

    Could pass as Italian or Jewish too, like most Lebanese.

    • andrew says:

      yes, he can. However this is not a Lebanese Muslim and most people in modern Lebanon look strongly MENA and not like Mr. Nader.

      • lelo4 says:

        so? 80-90% of the Lebanese worldwide are Christian. and Lebanese Muslims actually are more European genetically than the Christians , this is because Muslim women were more likely to be raped by the Normans and the Crusaders in the Middle Ages.

      Most Lebanese CAN’T pass as Italian, a minority pass as Sicilian/southern Italian.
      What Jewish ethnic group are you saying “most Lebanese” can pass as?
      No way do most or even many Lebanese pass as Ashkenazi Jews.
      Ashkenazi Jews have ***higher*** rates of light eyes and red/blonde hair than Italians.

        “No way do most or even many Lebanese pass as Ashkenazi Jews.”

        A very, very large number do. And vice versa.

        “Ashkenazi Jews have ***higher*** rates of light eyes and red/blonde hair than Italians.”

        Southern Italians, yes. But that has more to do with climate mutation than origins. I’ve seen countless Lebanese with light hair, and even blue eyes.

        we Ashkenazim are genetically half Italian and half middle eastern. Before Germany we came from Italy and before that Judea.
