The ancestral DNA of Syrians is from the same groups which are present in Europe, though in different proportions, chiefly in having more Y-type J than Europeans do.

Every Syrian I've met could easily pass in Italy or Spain.

Some Syrians also show minor African admixture, but I agree many look Southern Euro.

Syrians consider themselves to be white people as do Lebanese people.
Not up for debate, this is what they believe.

Some consider themselves white, other don't. But consider this. Skin bleaching is more common among Syrians than among similarly colored South Europeans. I know a Syrian dude who advertises himself as a Swede in various online chats and social networks, and obviously feels almost orgasmic pleasure when it works.

Dem Syrians dem a white like dem Turks. No doubt about it. ;-) However, some Syrians consider themselves Arabs, whereas others are proud to be descendants of ancient Assyrians. ;-D Let's not start again w/ stupid futile Yanks banana talks whether or not S.Jobs was white. ;-D If non-Gypsy Albanians & Bulgarians are white, so are Syrians as well. ;-)

I know that. By the way, the Byzantines had exchanged large masses of people between Syria and Thrace several times, which left several consequences: Some Syrians look like Balkanians, some Balkanians look like Arabs, and the Bogomil/Albigensian heresy that quaked Europe and devastated South France during the 13th century AD had its roots in Syria too.

Yeah, sometimes is really hard to tell the diff. between Balkanians like Serbs, Albanians & Bulgarians on one side & Turks, Syrians, Kurds, Tajiks & even Iranians on the other. ;-D To me some of 'em sometimes look quite the same, or very similar. ;-P

Yup Syrians are White. It amazes how people only think North Europeans are white. Thats like saying only northern Africans are black. Southern Europeans are White and Southern African are black.

Here's my rule of thumb to tell if a group of people are "white". If people from a country or ethnic group are shown dead or bloody and dying without any pixelation or blurring on mainstream news shows, then those people are not part of the white social construct.
