And what does a Middle Eastern look like?

There's a concept that has been much discussed this week that I'm having a bit of trouble with. "Middle Eastern appearance."

What does a Middle Eastern gentleman look like?

Is he Pakistani? Is he Afghani? Is he Iranian? Is he Iraqi? Is he Kurdish? Is he Yemeni? Is he Omani? Is he Qatari? Is he Kuwaiti? Is he Turkish? Is he Syrian? Is he Lebanese? Is he Jordanian? Is he Palestinian? Is he Israeli? Is he Saudi Arabian? Is he Egyptian? Is he Libyan? Maybe he looks like a Brazilian walking to catch his train.

Or maybe he looks like that chap from Nazareth whose birth we are celebrating in twelve days' time.
