Few of them are quite dark skinned. I wonder if they are fully Assyrian or mixed. The dark ones tend to look similar to Iraqi Arabs and Arabians. This I wonder if the dark girls are mixed with Southern Middle Eastern blood. However for the most part they look more similar to Levantine/Anatolians groups than Mesopotamia groups like the Iraqi Arabs . Good looking for the most part no doubt. It's shame what they are going through.

Thank you for the kind words, Alberta.

The range in phenotypic traits, such as skin color, can run the gamut even within families. My brother and I are perfect examples. But, then again, this is not a phenomena exclusive to the Assyrians. Compare the northern and southern varieties - if they exist - of many populations of the world, and you are likely to observe a similar, if not more extreme, range in phenotypes.

I do not know if these particular Assyrians are mixed, but given what I know of our society, and our strict endogamy (save for the Armenian exception), I cannot imagine, independent any very recent admixture, that many, some, or even any of the darker complexion Assyrians are anything but Assyrians. I am not speaking about random admixture. We all have that to some degree. I am speaking about a quantity sufficient to have an impact, on more than the rare occasion, on a trait such as skin color. I do not believe I have told you, or anyone other than a few fellow Assyrians, what I have discovered regarding the extent of our apparent endogamy. Of the 11 Hakkari/Urmia/N.Iraq Assyrians tested, both explicitly and implicitly (e.g. Father and Daughter --> Mother) at 23andMe, I am a predicted cousin of each and every one of the 11. These are individuals I had not a clue existed before testing at 23andMe, and frequenting these boards. Yet, I am related to each and every last one. Our existence before the troubles of the past century, for many centuries prior, likely dating back to the conquests of Tamerlame, were spent in isolation, simply attempting to survive.

Thank you very much for posting these photos, Alberta. One question, however. It is in regard to your reference to Tariq Aziz, as the "late" Iraqi Prime Minister. I believe he is still alive, my friend. A photo of him taken last month, during an interview with a British media outlet:
