Was there a Caucasian population in the Levant, Egypt, Northern Africa or Persia during biblical times?
The Egyptians depicted inhabitants of the areas of Syria and Ancient Israel. The people so shown are often dark Mediterranean types. Sometimes the subjects are blond and/or red haired with light colored eyes. These depictions in profile are similar to black and white Egyptian engravings showing the heads of Israelite cities during the campaign of Pharoah Shishak. So too, excavations of Samaria the former capital of the northern section of Israel have revealed black and white etchings in ivory of a Europoid type population. Take it or leave it. The genetical potential of differing kinds existed from the beginning.
