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.

Lamprecht said...

I voted Turk

Marnie said...

Syrian or Kurdish.

Achaean said...

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.
