Why Do The Big Nose On Middle-Eastern Stereotype Exist?

I've noticed a lot of caricature drawers tends to draw big noses on Middle-eastern and Afghan characters although people there doesn't tend to have bigger noses than people from rest of the world. So I'm wondering how the big crooked nose stereotype started and on why caricature drawers keeps it alive. It doesn't represent real life. There are a lot of Arab refugees in my country, but most of them have quite small noses and faces. Most individuals I've seen with big noses are Europeans and elderly people. Most Middle-eastern people I've seen have small noses and these ones with a little bit bigger ones tends to live in Israel. #Stereotype #ArabNose
