Default Saudi Arabians

This thread is meant for posting ethnic saudi arabians, although KSA like other gulf arab countries has a huge migrant population. Proportionally much bigger than in western europe.

Because of the hadj, attracting muslim pilgrims from all over the world, especially mekka and surroundings have an even more diverse population, some of whom have settled in KSA for generations already.

Saudi Arabia's population as of July 2010 is estimated to be about 27,136,977, including an estimated 9.5 million resident foreigners.[36] Until the 1960s, a majority of the population was nomadic; but presently more than 95% of the population is settled, due to rapid economic and urban growth. As recently as the early 1960s, the Saudi Arabia’s slave population was estimated at 300,000.[37] Slavery was officially abolished in 1962.

About 31% of the population is made up of foreign nationals living in Saudi Arabia.[38] A large portion of the expatriate population is South Asian or of South Asian ancestry, including Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis. In addition, there are some citizens of Asian, Northeast African, and Sub-Saharan ancestry. Many Arabs from nearby countries are employed in the kingdom. There are over eight million migrants from countries all around the world (including non-Muslims):[39] Indian: 1.3 million, Pakistani: 900,000, Bangladeshi: 400,000, Filipino: 500,000, Egyptian: 900,000, Yemeni: 800,000, Indonesian: 250,000, Sri Lankan: 350,000, Sudanese: 250,000, Syrian: 100,000 and Turkish: 80,000.[

Most Saudis are ethnically Arab. Some are of mixed ethnic origin and are descended from Turks, Iranians, Indonesians, Indians, Africans, and others, most of whom immigrated as pilgrims and reside in the Hijaz region along the Red Sea coast. Many Arabs from nearby countries are employed in the kingdom. There also are significant numbers of Asian expatriates mostly from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and the Philippines.[citation needed] In the 1970s and 1980s, there was also a significant community of South Korean migrant labourers, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, but most have since returned home; the South Korean government's statistics showed only 1,200 of their nationals living in the kingdom as of 2005[update].[1][2] There are more than 100,000 Westerners in Saudi Arabia, most of whom live in private compounds in the major cities such as Dhahran, Riyadh, and Jeddah. The government prohibits non-Muslims from living in Mecca and Medinah.

Some genetic studies

BMC Evol Biol. 2007 Mar 1;7(1):32 [Epub ahead of print]

Eurasian and African mitochondrial DNA influences in the Saudi Arabian population.

Abu-Amero KK, Gonzalez AM, Larruga JM, Bosley TM, Cabrera VM.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Genetic studies of the Arabian Peninsula are scarce even though the region was the center of ancient trade routes and empires and may have been the southern corridor for the earliest human migration from Africa to Asia. A total of 120 mtDNA Saudi Arab lineages were analyzed for HVSI/II sequences and for haplogroup confirmatory coding diagnostic positions. A phylogeny of the most abundant haplogroup (preHV)1 (R0a) was constructed based on 13 whole mtDNA genomes. RESULTS: The Saudi Arabian group showed greatest similarity to other Arabian Peninsula populations (Bedouin from the Negev desert and Yemeni) and to Levantine populations. Nearly all the main western Asia haplogroups were detected in the Saudi sample, including the rare U9 clade. Saudi Arabs had only a minority sub-Saharan Africa component (7%), similar to the specific North-African contribution (5%). In addition, a small Indian influence (3%) was also detected. CONCLUSION: The majority of the Saudi-Arab mitochondrial DNA lineages (85%) have a western Asia provenance. Although the still large confidence intervals, the coalescence and phylogeography of (preHV)1 haplogroup (accounting for 18 % of Saudi Arabian lineages) matches a Neolithic expansion in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabian Y-Chromosome diversity and its relationship with nearby regions

Khaled K. Abu-Amero et al.

Abstract

Background Human origins and migration models proposing the Horn of Africa as a prehistoric exit route to Asia have stimulated molecular genetic studies in the region using uniparental loci. However, from a Y-chromosome perspective, Saudi Arabia, the largest country of the region, has not yet been surveyed. To address this gap, a sample of 157 Saudi males was analyzed at high resolution using 67 Y-chromosome binary markers. In addition, haplotypic diversity for its most prominent J1-M267 lineage was estimated using a set of 17 Y-specific STR loci.

Results

Saudi Arabia differentiates from other Arabian Peninsula countries by a higher presence of J2-M172 lineages. It is significantly different from Yemen mainly due to a comparative reduction of sub-Saharan Africa E1-M123 and Levantine J1-M267 male lineages. Around 14% of the Saudi Arabia Y-chromosome pool is typical of African biogeographic ancestry, 17% arrived to the area from the East across Iran, while the remainder 69% could be considered of direct or indirect Levantine ascription. Interestingly, basal E-M96* (n=2) and J-M304* (n=3) lineages have been detected, for the first time, in the Arabian Peninsula. Coalescence time for the most prominent J1-M267 haplogroup in Saudi Arabia (11.6 +/- 1.9 ky) is similar to that obtained previously for Yemen (11.3 +/- 2) but significantly older that those estimated for Qatar (7.3 +/- 1.8) and UAE (6.8 +/- 1.5).

Conclusions
The Y-chromosome genetic structure of the Arabian Peninsula seems to be mainly modulated by geography. The data confirm that this area has mainly been a recipient of gene flow from its African and Asian surrounding areas, probably mainly since the last Glacial maximum onwards. Although rare deep rooting lineages for Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J have been detected, the presence of more basal clades supportive of the southern exit route of modern humans to Eurasian, were not found.

Most of them are celebs, can't vouch for them being 100% saudi though.

The mixed area is mostly the Hejaz. The coastal regions are also heavily African influenced. However the North and Central Arabia is mostly pure Arabian to this day. The Southern region around the Yemeni highlands and as well the rub al-khali desert. The pure Arab tribal population looks down on the mixed population as often they don't have tribal membership, and names that indicates their non-Arab origins. The people in Arabia still look at the importance of the maternal line. Saudi Arabians tend to look like Bedouins for the most part , ie dark Caucasoid. There is Iranid influence in Eastern Arabia since pre-Islamic times.

She is very beautiful. This one looks to be from the Eastern region



Hello Nurse this one looks to be from Northern Arabia, the areas bordering Iraq

Most are a mixture of arabid and iranid components. Others show negroid and armenoid admixture.

There are some similarities to Ethiopians, although not as African looking.
