Skip to comments.Muslim outrage as professor warns first-cousin marriages increase risk of birth defects
Posted on 05/30/2011 1:11:24 PM PDT by ruralvoter
Inbreeding among British Muslims is threatening the health of their children, a leading geneticist warned yesterday.
Professor Steve Jones, from University College London, said the common practice in Islamic communities for cousins to marry each other increased the risk of birth defects.
There may be some evidence that cousins marrying one another can be harmful, he told an audience at the Hay Festival.
We should be concerned about that as there can be a lot of hidden genetic damage. Children are much more likely to get two copies of a damaged gene.
Bradford is very inbred. There is a huge amount of cousins marrying each other there.

Outrage for stating a truth known for 4,000 years... Only muslims could be so blind.
The dark ages are over. Its 2011 now people. Lets try and keep up! That goes for you too, Mr. President!
Sadamm’s first wife was his first cousin. The product of that union was their oldest son Uday. We all know what a likable, well-rounded kid he was.
What’s one gene between friends?
Besides, as long as the lil’ tykes can carry a strap-on bomb and remote detonate, it’s all good.
I understand where muslim rage boy came from now.
They come by it honestly, by the breeding.
I must disagree.
Don’t tell them, it could stop them reduce their gene pool!
Contrary to what some comments say, inbreeding was not common among Christian Europeans or Jews. And it is not merely an “Asian” problem. It is also common practice in Arab countries.
When you take a small group of 60%+ inbreds and then isolate them in a foreign country, away from a larger selection of first cousins, the problem magnifies dramatically in 2-3 generations.
If islamic cultures can disperse over a wider area, such as in America they can progress but they also become more assimilated and westernized.
That is the contradiction presented to islamic cultures that leave islamic areas.
Nature has interesting ways of taking care of problems.
Wow, it’s gone before my post hit the thread. LOL
Muslims have outrage against genetics? Now isn’t that just too bad!!! How stupid can they get? Oh, well, their level of intelligence is also dictated by genetics. No wonder their reaction to truth is outrage. Some of us are tired of their outrage. I hear the Middle East is a good place to go these days if you want to express your outrage. Go home, muslims.
Reality-based, science-based Muslims make good Democratic voters.
“If your family tree doesn’t fork...you might be a redneck Muslim.”
This practice in the muslim world does however offer significant explanation of toady's state of their peoples.
No need to read beyond that. Same old, same old.
When I lived in Egypt it was very, very common to marry first cousins. I attended 3 weddings, all were to first cousins. That was in the 1990’s.
Generation after generation of Muslims have been marrying first cousins and the result is the bunch of inbreds we have to deal with.
Who knew the Rednecks in the hills where muslims..
Why am I surprised—from goats to their children. A religion that not only dictates (fatwa) the death of so-called non-believers and revels in those deaths is a sick travesty.
That we allow Muslims to act out their murdering perversions is a shame on us.
Only inbred idiots would get angry when you tell them that inbreeding could cause genetic problems in their children.
Look at their great contributions to modern day science, medicine, engineering,
economics, agriculture, philosophy, sociology, the arts and humanities....
Look at their great industrial centers and world class education systems.....
"This practice, which has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses, was sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generations (1,400 years) in the Muslim world.
This practice of inbreeding will never go away in the Muslim world since Muhammad is the ultimate example and authority on all matters, including marriage.
The massive inbreeding in Muslim culture may well have done virtually irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to its intelligence, sanity, and health. According to Sennels, close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred. In Pakistan , the numbers approach 70%. Even in England , more than half of Pakistani immigrants are married to their first cousins, and in Denmark the number of inbred Pakistani immigrants is around 40%.
The numbers are equally devastating in other important Muslim countries: 67% in Saudi Arabia , 64% in Jordan and Kuwait , 63% in Sudan , 60% in Iraq , and 54% in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar .
According to the BBC, this Pakistani, Muslim-inspired inbreeding is thought to explain the probability that a British Pakistani family is more than 13 times as likely to have children with recessive genetic disorders. While Pakistanis are responsible for three percent of the births in the UK , they account for 33% of children with genetic birth defects.
The risk of what are called autosomal recessive disorders such as cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy is 18 times higher and the risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher.
Other negative consequences of inbreeding include a 100 percent increase in the risk of stillbirths and a 50% increase in the possibility that a child will die during labor.
Lowered intellectual capacity is another devastating consequence of Muslim marriage patterns. According to Sennels, research shows that children of consanguinous marriages lose 10-16 points off their IQ and that social abilities develop much slower in inbred babies.
The risk of having an IQ lower than 70, the official demarcation for being classified as retarded, increases by an astonishing 400 percent among children of cousin marriages.
In the last 1,200 years years of Islam, just 100,000 books have been translated into Arabic, about what Spain does in a single year. Seven out of 10 Turks have never even read a book.
Sennels points out the difficulties this creates for Muslims seeking to succeed in the West. A lower IQ, together with a religion that denounces critical thinking, surely makes it harder for many Muslims to have success in our high-tech knowledge societies.
Only nine Muslims have every won the Nobel Prize, and five of those were for the Peace Prize. According to Nature magazine, Muslim countries produce just 10 percent of the world average when it comes to scientific research (measured by articles per million inhabitants).
Just another reason why muslims are defective...there are many other reasons as well.
Seeing as the rest of the left wing world continues to make excuses for them this could be a stealth victory in the making and no violence involved. A winning plan on all accounts.
Yes, it is a shame on us that we allow these temples to satan within our borders. Muslims worship satan, and their main sacrament is cold-blooded murder of innocents. And none of our politicians have the nerve to speak the truth to satan-worshippers. We even have a muslim in the White House - and none of our politicians have the nerve to speak the truth about Islam to him.
They're in Britain after all, and are therefore merely trying to revive a dying tradition that used to be practiced in the British royal family. It's just cultural assimilation.
Everything pi$$es them off!
"Let me look over my talking points so I can remember what I am angry about! I know I'm really honked off at my dentist....he's probably inbred."
Albert Einstein’s second wife was a first cousin.
>That we allow Muslims to act out their murdering perversions is a shame on us.<
Now, now, now, not so homophobic. Didn’t they teach you in school that all cultures are of equal value, whether it was Haydn or heavy metal?
Actually, Mary Todd Lincoln’s parents were first cousins as were her grandparents and on back a few generations. I’ve done genealogy on the Todds and the Parkers and other old families in Virginia and Kentucky. They weren’t just hill people.
“Lowered intellectual capacity is another devastating consequence of Muslim marriage patterns.”
No surprise there.
Intelligent people simply do not behave like Muslims.
Pardon the pun, but if the shoe fits.
FDR married his cousin, too, fwiw.
Oh, well. If they don’t turn out good for anything else, they can always be suicide bombers.
Lots of Arab countries are in Asia with some also in the northern part of Africa.
Eleanor and Franklin were not first cousins. Their relationship was 4th or 5th, which is quite distant genetically.
Is anyone in the IVF industry worried or keeping records so that the children of anonymous sperm donors and anonymous rental wombs will not marry and produce offspring?
I would imagine that half-brothers & half-sisters would be far more problematic than first cousins.
All moslems have birth defects. If they didn't, they wouldn't be moslems.
That’s hate speech.
Someone was offended.
Usay wasn’t exactly a study in perfection either. LOL!!
“Muslims fly into a rage at the drop of a hat.”
A sure sign of a true ‘social-emotional’. All kidding aside, let’s hope that the 2.2 Billion of them don’t organize and march on what’s left of the free world.
I’m thinking I would rather be stuck in Zombieland with nothing more than a slingshot than to have that many fanatics chasing me with AK’s and swords.
Sure every muslims will continue to marry cousins, they take the child out, if he/ she is not what they envisioned
