—“My understanding is that you are knowledgable on race. Would you happen to know the race of Kurds and Arabs?”—
Kurds are west asians, and part of the Iranic (caucasian) branch.
Kurdish people are closely related to the Azeri, Armenian, Georgian peoples, descending from some common ancestors in the northern Near East region. ie: west eurasians.
Southern italians < greeks < anatolians > caucasians > iranians > Turks.
Arabs are afro asiatics from the ethiopian/red sea/yemen area that migrated north and consist of north and south branches.
East africans > South arabs > north arabs > palestinians
south africans < East Africans > West africans
Because of the degree of conquest in the middle east the genomes of west eurasians in the greater mesopotamia and levant area appear to have a lot of overlap – particularly in the Kurds who are sort of ‘in the middle’ of it all. It’s helpful to think of jews, palestinians, and kurds as peoples who were unable to survive as nation states throughout the persian, greek, roman, and arab conquests.
Europeans for example are the european branch of the west asians but it appears that they are a result of some conflict between the north and south urheimat peoples.
Atlantics > germanics > nordics, > slavics > finns are europeans (glacial survivors of the european plain.)
