  • No. That is why they are North Africans and not Middle Easterns.

  • Yes and no. True north Africans are people of Hittite descent (modern day Turkey), something of a culture and race of their own. However, because of the spread of Islam and Arab presence over the years, they are mostly of Middle Eastern descent you could say.

    • But north Africans got different traditions from the Arabian gulf , even in Islamic sharia and stuff

    • That's why I said "because of the spread of Islam and Arab presence over the years."

  • They can be considered as such. Using my friend as a guide (he lived in Egypt until he was about 10), he identifies as African because he's not ethnically Arab.
