Kurdish for me: he is like the lost brother of Abdullah Ocalan, mustache and all. :)I considered Turkish too but these are often more like average Europeans.
I hit Kurd immediately, as this is the general picture I have of Kurds - though on a second look he could he Turk
Most likely a Kurd, and probably a kurmanj one(not Sorani).
I picked Arab. Looks like an Iraqi.
I voted Turk
Syrian or Kurdish.
Syrian or (Eastern) Turk. Not Western Turk by any strech of imagination, i.e. deffo NOT from Lycia, Ionia, Bithynia-Troas or Thrace incl Constantinople.
I voted Syrian because I see some Arab features in this otherwise Turkish-looking guy. Don't think this is a a Kurd composite and am pretty sure that all others (Arab, Armenian, Jew, Persian) can be excluded.
Syrian: I think he's from the western half. He's not Arab/south but he is too similar to Arab to be northern or Turkish. In short he seems Arab approaching Mediterranean, so... Syrian.when do we get the answers to these?
I went for Turk here. Its all in the eyes.Just wondering: Why so dark skinned?
It is mind boggling how so many people voted Turk for this man despite his very pronounced Middle Eastern and non-European appearance (I am not saying he cannot be a Turk, I am just saying he doesn't look like a typical or characteristical Turk). Especially Ponto's comment about the eyes shows how perception can easily be misleading.
