A Danish psychologist warns that 1,400 years of inbreeding, marrying first cousins, may be wreaking havoc on Muslim intelligence, health and sanity.
A large part of inbred Muslims are born from parents who are themselves inbred, which increase the risks of negative mental and physical consequences greatly,â€ says Nicolai Sennels, author of the book Among Criminal Muslims and articles on the psychology of Islam and Muslims, in a Dec. 26 article in 10News.dk.
Combining his own research and several studies, Sennels says the genetic damage of such intermarriage, which is part of Islamic religion and culture since their prophet, Mohammad, allowed it, is causing lower intelligence (IQs), increased physical defects and greater incident of mental illness.
Almost half of Muslims worldwide are estimated to be inbred, with 70 percent of marriages in Pakistan, 67 percent in Saudi Arabia and 80 percent in Nubia in southern Egypt in consanguineous (blood-related) marriages to first cousins, to name just a few of the countries, he cites.
â€œSeveral studies show that children of consanguineous marriages have lower intelligence than children of non-related parents, Sennels says. Research shows that the IQ is 10-16 points lower in children born from related parents and that abilities related to social behavior develops slower in inbred babies And children born of cousins are twice as likely as the general population to have mental or physical disabilities, which drain municipal funds, he says.
It probably also explains, at least partly, why two-thirds of all immigrant school children with Arabic backgrounds are illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system, Sennels says.
Special education costs for slow learners consume a third of the budget of Danish schools, and Muslim immigrants and their children have a very high rate of unemployment because of limited skills, he says.
Sennels draws broader conclusions. The limited ability to understand, appreciate and produce knowledge following a limited IQ is probably also partly the reason why Muslim countries produce 1/10 of the World average when it comes to scientific research, he says.
The lack of interest in science and human development in the Muslim World is also clear in the UN Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR). AHDR concludes that there have been fewer books translated into Arabic in the last thousand years than the amount of books translated within the country of Spain every year.
Although consanguinity is lower among Muslims in non-Muslim countries, BBC research recently aired showed 55 percent of Pakistanis in the United Kingdom are inbred, he says, adding that the Times of India reports British Pakistani children are 13 times more likely than the general population to have genetic recessive disorders.
In the article, which is filled with supporting research citations and was orginally published in EuropeNews, Sennels says perinatal deaths, some of which are due to genetic disorders, and mental illnesses, such as depression, schizophrenia and insanity, are higher among consanguineous Muslim immigrants than the general populations.
A legislative ban on first cousin marriages is a logical and compassionate imperative for both the Muslim world, for EU and our Western national governments, he concludes.
