according to what i've heard, arabs and berbers have extensively interbred.

that would account for people of berber descent speaking arabic.

All genetic studies show that arabs had no or little influence on the ancestry of berbers, subsaharan influence is much greater than the arb one. The same is true for north arican arabs, they are identical to berbers except form some tribes. Toira 14:03, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

It depends on which berber region one has conducted genetic tests, I doubt that tests have been carried out in the more obscure regions where most berbers are siituated. It is true that some berbers are decended from arabs but this is not true for all. Furthermore, the subsaharan influence depends again on the area. Its a tricky subject to consider since not all berbers are of the same race, it is a bit like the pan arabic world whereby it is a people united by a single language/culture. Go to the area zayan and you can clearly see that the people there are of remote relation to arabs!!These people have probably never met arabs apart from on television!
