I'm not entirely sure that Japheth's descendants are Europeans. From what I've seen Europeans are descendants of Shem, after all Arabs who are known descendants of Shem are of the general Caucasian (Caucasoid) race. I believe that Asians are descendants of Japheth. There is also anthropological and literary evidences for this. What I'm suggesting is that we could go through all the evidences for this.

You should read After The Flood by Bill Cooper. Terms like Caucasoid are inherently derived form an Evolutionary view points, the various Ethnic feature people developed during the earliest years after Babel are caused by where they lived now who they descended from. All of Noah's finally would have had the same Genetic potential for all features that exist today. White skin comes from living in the Cold north, why the whitest of us whites have a good portion of our ancestry in Scandinavia. Black skin comes from living in the hottest portions of the planet where they needed more protection form the Sun. The Greek remember Japheth as Iapetus and the Indo-Iranians as Pra-Japati. Javan, Dodanim, Kittim and Elishah are all represented by various placename of Greece, the Irish traced their ancestry to Magog, and various Germanic and Nordic tribes of Gomer and his 3 sons ans Trias (Deified as Thor).--MithirandirOlorin 15:30, 4 June 2011 (PDT)

The Arabs have always been associated with descendants of Shem. Arabic is a Semitic (Shemitic) language, a sister to Hebrew. The Spanish, Germans, Greeks, and identified as descendants of Japheth.
