111. I wouldn't call their mannerisms "white"I
I would call them "Western." I get the same vibes that you do - that these are not Muslim extremists - but calling it "white" wouldn't be correct - as many have pointed out, Iraqis and in fact all Arabs are considered caucasian.

But definitely, yes, there are little subtle cues in their body language which suggest they are Western: their slouch, their limp hands... just the general way in which they appear. It's hard to explain, it's kind of like a vibes thing.

Unfortunately, most people won't trust others on things like "vibes", but that doesn't mean we should just give up. Every little detail about this needs to be researched, checked, and doublechecked, just to find any slipups that may be present that are more convincing.
