I think people would be surprised at the aesthetic diversity in the Arab and Iranian worlds. You'll see Iranians as pale as any Irishman and Arabs who would not look out of place in Southern Italy. That's not even counting the various other ethnic groups in that part of the world like Kurds and Azeris who sometimes don't look like the stereotypical "Middle Eastern" we see in the Western world, especially in media.
