Nicolai Sennels is a Danish
psychologist who has done extensive research into a little-known problem in the Muslim
world: the disastrous consequences of Muslim inbreeding brought about by the marriage
The practice of marrying close relatives, 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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
(Similar effects were seen in the Pharaonic
dynasties in ancient Egypt and in the British royal family, where inbreeding
was the norm for a significant period of time. Twenty states in the U.S. allow
first cousins to marry, but first cousin marriages remain rare in America. And
the problem comes with generation after generation of first cousin marriage,
which flushes recessive gene malformations to the surface.)
non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the
intelligence test required for entrance into the Danish army.
Sennels says that
“the ability to enjoy and produce knowledge and abstract thinking is simply
lower in the Islamic world.” He points out that the Arab world translates just
330 books every year, about 20% of what Greece alone does.
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
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
In Denmark, Sennels’
native country, Muslim children are grossly overrepresented among children with
special needs. One-third of the budget for Danish schools is consumed by
special education, and anywhere from 51% to 70% of retarded children with
physical handicaps in Copenhagen have an immigrant background.
Learning ability is
severely affected as well. Studies indicated that 64% of school children with
Arabic parents are still illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system.
The immigrant drop-out rate in Danish high schools is twice that of the
Mental illness is
also a product. The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of
schizophrenic illness. The increased risk of insanity may explain why more than
40% of the patients in Denmark’s biggest ward for clinically insane criminals
have an immigrant background.
The U.S. is not
immune. According to Sennels, “One study based on 300,000 Americans shows that
the majority of Muslims in the USA have a lower income, are less educated, and
have worse jobs than the population as a whole.”
no doubt that the wide spread tradition of first cousin marriages among Muslims
has harmed the gene pool among Muslims. Because Muslims' religious beliefs
prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevents them from adding fresh genetic
material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since
their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago are most likely
massive. (This has produced) overwhelming direct and indirect human and
line: Islam is not simply a benign and morally equivalent alternative to the
Judeo-Christian tradition. As Sennels points out, the first and biggest victims
of Islam are Muslims. Simple Christian compassion for Muslims and a
common-sense desire to protect Western civilization from the ravages of Islam
dictate a vigorous opposition to the spread of this dark and dangerous religion.
These stark realities must be taken into account when we establish public
polices dealing with immigration from Muslim countries and the building of
mosques in the U.S.
hope America wakes up before a blind naivete about the reality of Islam destroys
what remains of our Christian culture and our domestic tranquility.
