    The pictures show the diversity if anything but most of the people look like average Levantines.

    Some diversity I suppose, although you excluded some groups right? That was my impression.

    I think the fact that you left out Jewish populations is pretty strange.

    Most of today's Israelis are European Jews who are not representative of the Levant, in my opinion, hence my exclusion of them in this thread.

    Hey that's your prerogative but I don't think it's very accurate. Doesn't really matter, though,I was just bringing it up.

    I mean I guess they could be included but I can think of arguments for why today's Jews are as a whole not representative of the Levant. But I respect your opinion of course.

    No, the average Levantine wouldn't fit in all of those countries, he/she wouldn't even pass as a Gypsy (now I'm talking about Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Albania and Macedonia, I don't know how it is in the other countries).
