    I'd say the "conclusion" is that some individuals probably have some Arabian admixture while others entirely lack it. Though for coastal Tunisia in particular the issue becomes somewhat clouded by the fact that absorption of Sicilian Muslims, converted Jews, and Turks might pull some individuals eastwards.

    Does anyone have samples from Berkane, Morocco? I want to look for a friend who is from there.

    A lot of arab tribes moved from arabian peninsula to Mesopotamia, to the Levant, and Egypt at the islamic conquest. Even, in a lesser wave, in Iran, between 630-660. But more lesser than that in North Africa starting from 700AD. That's explain why arab input is rather weak, if not existant at all in some cases in North Africa.
