From what I've seen most Syrians have naturally tan skin, brown/black hair and dark brown eyes. Some of lighter European features.

Yupp' they are.
I'm Syrian, living in Europe and I'm the palest one in my whole school. I'm so pale that my veins are visible x)
Also on Tv when you see darker Syrian, those comes from the mounts. They are more kurds or something like that.

Also @Mila

I have brown eyes, ginger-ish hair and my grandpa is blond, with blue eyes. Syrian people are NOT tan, and I've never seen any Syrian with natural dark hair, so yeah.

God bless.

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.
Incorrect. White Europeans are r1a/r1b types. J is a sandmonkey haplogroup. That is why european groups with a higher percentage of j like albanians, sicilians,greeks,etc often resemble sandmonkeys. They have middle eastern admixture from the neolithic, roman times, arab invasions,etc.
The real european spaniards/italians simply look white, the mongrels resemble arabs and mexican mestizos.

Some Syrians also show minor African admixture, but I agree many look Southern Euro.
That is because those particular southern euros also have african admixtutre as they are mixed with arabs, and arabs in general have a lot of african blood.

Look at Vin Diesel, he is 1/4th black and he could be italian.

Not up for debate, this is what they believe.
Most consider themselves to be arabs, only a minority of self-haters (mainly Christians) consider themselves to be white, the same way only a minority of mestizos consider themselves to be white.

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. ;-)
- white Syrians for ya, sand_cracka ;-D

LMAO. Arabs look more like mestizos/castizos, than anything else.

You might as well say that George Zimmerman is a white guy. That's probably what you believe.

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.
Most northern africans have obvious black blood, they are mainly mixed,though. Those particular southern euros are also mixed.

Your average syrian looks like a brown al-qaeda terrorist. Search youtube for the free syrian army or just watch cnn.
