Disturbing: Inbreeding is a huge problem in the Muslim world

Posted: June 13, 2013 at 8:39 am   /   by

The knee-jerk response of the typical lefty upon reading that headline is to resort to calumny to discredit any who would dare raise such an issue. Islamophobe! Racist! Jingoist! Of course, as the author of this stunning piece points out, the truly compassionate position is one of concern for this terribly damaging situation.

How damaging is it? The whole piece is an absolute must read, but here’s a shocking sample of just how bad the situation is:

Today, 70 percent of all Pakistanis are inbred and in Turkey the amount is between 25-30 percent (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 “More stillbirths among immigrants“). A rough estimate reveals that close to half of everybody living in the Arab world is inbred. A large percentage of the parents that are blood related come from families where intermarriage has been a tradition for generations.

BBC investigation in Britain several years ago revealed that at least 55% of the Pakistani community in Britain was married to a first cousin. The Times of India affirmed that “this is thought to be linked to the probability that a British Pakistani family is at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders.”

The BBC’s research also discovered that while British Pakistanis accounted for just 3.4% of all births in Britain, they accounted for 30% of all British children with recessive disorders and a higher rate of infant mortality. It is not a surprise, therefore, that, in response to this evidence, a Labour Party MP has called for a ban on first-cousin marriage.

Medical evidence shows that one of the negative consequences of inbreeding is a 100 percent increase in the risk of stillbirths. One study comparing Norwegians and Pakistanis shows the risk that the child dies during labor increases by 50 percent. The risk of death due to autosomal recessive disorders — e.g., cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy — is 18 times higher. Risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher. Mental health is also at risk: the probability of depression is higher in communities where consanguine marriages are also high. The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of mental and physical retardation and schizophrenic illness.

And then there are the findings on intelligence. Research shows that if one’s parents are cousins, intelligence goes down 10-16 IQ points. The risk of having an IQ lower than 70 (criterion for being “retarded”) increases 400 percent among children from cousin marriages. An academic paper published in the Indian National Science Academy found that “the onset of various social profiles like visual fixation, social smile, sound seizures, oral expression and hand-grasping are significantly delayed among the new-born inbred babies.” Another study found that Indian Muslim school boys whose parents were first cousins tested significantly lower than boys whose parents were unrelated in a non-verbal test on intelligence.

It is estimated that one third of all handicapped people in Copenhagen have a foreign background. Sixty four percent of school children in Denmark with Arabic parents are illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system. The same study concludes that in reading ability, mathematics, and science, the pattern is the same: “The bilingual (largely Muslim) immigrants’ skills are exceedingly poor compared to their Danish classmates.”

These problems within Islam bring many detriments to Western countries. Expenses related to mentally and physically handicapped Muslim immigrants, for instance, severely drain the budgets and resources of our societies. Look at Denmark, for example: one third of the budget for the country’s schools is spent on children with special needs. Muslim children are grossly overrepresented among these children. More than half of all children in schools for children with mental and physical handicaps in Copenhagen are foreigners — of whom Muslims are by far the largest group. One study concludes that “foreigners inbreeding costs our municipalities millions” because of the many handicapped children and adults.

We highly recommend reading the rest.

If this is true—and it looks like the author has done extensive research—then the conflict between the West and Islam may be even more irremediable than we realize. What’s the one thing that is more dangerous than someone who believes the killing or subjugation of infidels is a religious imperative?

Someone who believes the killing or subjugation of infidels is a religious imperative AND is suffering from congenital schizophrenia.

    Those who are being so politically-correct that they refuse to see indisputable facts in front of them will hopefully also dwindle in numbers because of that ignorance that eventually stops them from propagating. A similar outcry happened when researchers first wanted to study the higher incidence of sickle-cell anemia among black people. They were initially targeted as racist for choosing to look into a “black disease.” It was simply genetic and did indeed require deeper study in order to understand and reverse the problem. It was certainly NOT racist.
    My question to those people is this: Should we simply not discuss this problem and allow these people to continue to inbreed so that nature can take over to eventually decimate this segment of our population? But I rather doubt that’s what is behind their logic.

    1. @RobertinSeattle Yes, for the cognoscenti, political correctness is not an end unto itself, but rather a cudgel with which to beat from the public square those who oppose their statist aims.

  2. John says:

    Why is this disturbing. I think we should encourage this, so that more such idiots are born and this violent religion dies a natural death.

    1. RiaIndica says:

      @John Maybe we should encourage this in your community John, so racist ****’s can die a natural death too.

      1. RiaIndica @John The difference between John and Islam, RiaIndica, is that John is just commenting on a website, whereas Muslims kill and injure about 1,000 human being every single week in the name of Islam.

  3. Marty says:

    Inbreeding is also very common in ultra-orthodox Jewish communities. They’re small communities and only marry within their own sects. Marrying cousins is also common — read Chaim Potak’s The Chosen if you don’t believe me.

    Of course, most conservatives dare not apply the same standards of scrutiny to Jews as to Muslims. Modern conservatives are as politically correct, in their own way, as are liberals.

    1. @Marty Excessive inbreeding and first-cousin marriage is not a good idea no matter who is doing it. The differences, though, between ultra-orthodox Jewish sects and Muslims are numerous. First we have the sheer numbers—this is not a thing throughout the Jewish world; it is limited. By contrast, this is widespread in the Muslim world. But that’s not the main issue. The main issue is that Muslims are killing and maiming 1,000 people a week, every week, across the globe, in the name of Islam. Thus, the rest of us have every reason to be concerned about what this particular religion/culture does.

    2. damondb says:

      @Marty  but outside of their violent hostility against secular Israelis , expressed by throwing rocks and spitting on female soldiers , these inbreeds are relatively harmless. not many “dosim” strapping on suicide bomb vests or beheading people. and the run of the mill jew considers their inbreeding tacky and bizarre. islam condones it, even encourages it.

  4. PJ says:

    Those who have limited intelligence are easily led.  This makes it a dangerous situation in itself.  How easy would it be to strap a bomb onto someone with an IQ of 70 or less and tell them to go to the fountain in the center of the mall and wait til his bomb goes off?  On the other hand, think of those poor babies who born deformed or who die without having a chance to live.  Think of the mother’s love that is broken.  Two ways to think of this situation.  It would be hard to take a stand.

  5. wangweilin says:

    RiaIndica  What race is Islam?

  6. wangweilin RiaIndica RiaIndica probably won’t come back. Lefties drive by, fire the word “racist” out of their rhetorical Mac 10s, and then drive off. It’s vile and cowardly.

  7. wangweilin says:

    WesternFreePress wangweilin RiaIndica : Facts are a repellent to liberals. Fun to use and watch them scatter.

  8. wangweilin RiaIndica Who needs facts when you have self-righteous emotionalism?

  9. R Pahinui says:

    Inbreeding ….Please don’t create Babies than can not live  or can not have productive lives.  Stop  Screwing  Close Family!!!!!! Please

    @John IDIOT!!!!!

  11. SCFan3 says:

    All humans are inbred and all ethnicities/races are a result of inbreeding. Study genetics.
    The reason Europeans are a “race” or distinct ethnic group with similar phenotype (light skin, light eyes, light hair) is because of hardcore inbreeding. Doesn’t matter how “diverse” the genepool appears now, it is, overall, quite homogenous and inbred.
    East Asians are worse. Japanese and Koreans are closer to each other genetically than French are to Germans. It’s like one big giant inbred family.
    Most Middle Eastern populations are actually mutts, mixes of several different ancestral populations, so they’ve still got the most diversity. The problem is that their inbreeding is current and extreme, and did not occur during the “survival of the fittest” era of humanity like European or East Asian inbreeding.

  12. SCFan3 Stipulating for the moment that your information is correct, the issue of first cousin marriages appears to loom large, because they are suffering from genetic health issues specifically related thereto. Other cohorts (Europeans, e.g.) are not.

    wangweilin RiaIndica Its not a race It’s false religion..

    Sameul P. Huntington quote:
    “Islam’s borders are bloody and so are its innards. The fundamental problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilisation whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.”

  16. wangweilin Pete Decambre RiaIndica Huntington is loathed in the Islamic world and mocked by the Western left. Gee, I wonder why.
    If you’re not taking flak, you’re not over the target.

  17. RamonaSilvestri says:

    the recycled genetic codes of inbreeding for thousands and thousands of years  is making their off spring ill. is this why there is also so many problems even in their abilities to understand other cultures? is israel into inbreeding too? everyone looks related in both countries to me…the answer is branch out!!  at least the new trend of genetic testing they are doing is helping them establish that their off spring will be at  risk for disease and to rethink these unions. cousin- cousin love needs to avoid procreation its not fair to the child if not the whole idea altogether is just too risky and personally i feel weird.

  18. RamonaSilvestri Israelis don’t marry first cousins, as far as I know.

  19. GothicSalsaBox says:

    Does this apply to black people as well? My sister and I are both black, but our parents come from two different countries (America, Jamaica). People say we are very ontelligent and such. I noticed many of the “ghetto ” black people are those who have lived in the same “hood” and who have several generations that live in the same area are bat sh*t insane., violent etc. I think it has to do with inbreeding more than poverty. However, because of the one drop rule, many “black Americans ” are actually mixed.
