Up to half of all Muslims are inbred. Shocked? You should be. Nevertheless, it seems to be true. How is that possible, and why is it so prevalent? These questions should be asked and asked loudly. As scandalous as this topic may be, people seem to be unaware of its commonality in the Middle East as a social practice. With increased immigration, what was once taboo is now becoming commonplace in western nations, thanks to Islam.
British geneticist, Professor Steve Jones of the University College London, giving The John Maddox Lecture at the 2011 Hay Festival, stated in relation to Muslim inbreeding “It is common in the Islamic world to marry your brother’s daughter, which is actually [genetically] closer than marrying your cousin.”
WikiIslam, the online resource on Islam states that “A BBC report discussed Pakistanis in the United Kingdom, 55% of whom marry a first cousin. Given the high rate of such marriages, many children come from repeat generations of first-cousin marriages. The report states that these children are 13 times more likely than the general population to produce children with genetic disorders, and one in ten children of first-cousin marriages in Birmingham either dies in infancy or develops a serious disability.”
Could these numbers influence people’s behavior? Could there be a link between genetic changes in one’s brain chemistry and the desire to commit terrorist atrocities? What about raping women and children? These are reasonable questions to ask considering that most physicians agree that marrying within one’s immediate family has deleterious effects on their offspring’s health, specifically their mental and emotional health.
Could the scourge of rape that has swept across Europe since the advent of the migrant crisis be contributed, at least in part, to the peculiar mental proclivities that are concomitant to incest and inbreeding? Aside from terror acts and rape that may be attributable to genetic defects associated with incest, what, if anything, does this mean for future generations of children born in the West?
Professor Jones avers “that ‘inbreeding’ in Islamic communities was threatening the health of generations of children.”
The Daily Mail concurs. The facts speak for themselves and the consequences are very real.
“British Pakistanis, half of whom marry a first cousin (a figure that is universally agreed), are 13 times more likely to produce children with genetic disorders than the general population, according to Government-sponsored research.”
This matches the numbers offered by WikiIslam above.
“One in ten children from these cousin marriages either dies in infancy or develops a serious life-threatening disability,” declares the Mail.
“While British Pakistanis account for three percent of the births in this country, they are responsible for 33 percent of the 15,000 to 20,000 children born each year with genetic defects.”
Shockingly, in Bradford, England, a recent survey of 1,100 pregnant women in the city showed that 70 percent have husbands who are first cousins. 50% of these people are Pakistani.
Common problems associated with inbreeding with first cousins are blindness, deafness, and blood ailments (like sickle cell anemia). Heart, liver, and kidney problems, along with a whole host of neurological disorders and genetic abnormalities that can be passed on to future generations are also very common problems.
Of course, as is now common in Europe, doctors—like police officers, media personnel, and politicians—are afraid to raise awareness about this health crisis for fear of being labeled racist.
To add to this lack of spinelessness on the part of public officials and social servants to address this burgeoning health crisis, most Muslim girls find themselves in a situation where they are expected to marry when they are young and in their teens. With no chance of being able to break away from their parents, they are married off to their male cousin under the guise of preserving the family’s money, jewelry, and livelihood.
If both of the prospective parents have a mutation in their genetic makeup, then the child has a 25% chance of suffering from serious complications associated with inbreeding.
Some imams in England have spoken out about this risky practice and it has caused the rates of cousin-to-cousin marriage to drop, if only slightly. However, the practice remains high in the Middle East and those that immigrate to Europe bring with them the perceived normalcy of marrying within one’s family.
Conversely, CBS News seems to disagree with the findings of the doctors in the UK. Robin Bennett, who headed a study on first cousin marriages, told ABC News “that the risks of having a child with a cousin were about “2 [percent] to 3 percent” above the average population’s risk for having a child with birth defects or mental retardation.”
Slate magazine concludes something similar to ABC News. “Now a study by the National Society of Genetic Counselors says that having a child with your first cousin raises the risk of a significant birth defect from about 3-to-4 percent to about 4-to-7 percent. According to the authors, that difference isn’t big enough to justify genetic testing of cousin couples, much less bans on cousin marriage.”
This does not take into account the compounding problems of an ever-closer gene pool, however. Slate continues by saying, “Many genetic diseases are caused by recessive genes. To get the disease, you have to get the bad gene from both parents. The greater the genetic similarity between your parents, the greater your chance of getting two copies of the bad gene.”
This view is in line with Mohamed Walji who runs a health center in Balsall Heath, Birmingham. He claims that if both parents “carry the same mutations, there is a one-in-four chance of having an affected child — which can result in anything from a mild disability to a catastrophic illness or a miscarriage.”
Unfortunately, this may be nothing new in the Muslim world. Such mating practices have been going on since the founding of the religion itself.
As the story goes, Zaynab bint Jahsh married the Prophet Muhammad when she was thirty-five years old, but only after her previous marriage, which had been arranged by none other than the Prophet, had ended in divorce. She was his cousin.
Muhammad also had 19 wives and concubines, one of which he married when she was 6 years old. Her name was Ai’isha. To his credit, he waited to have sex with her until she was 9 years old. He was 54 years of age at the time. If that does not bother you, it is doubtful anything ever will.
Maybe Muslims use the actions of Muhammad as justification for their own actions? Presumably, the justification for marrying one’s cousin, whether it be a first cousin or a more distant one, hinges on social acceptance of the act itself. Westerners do not condone cousin marriages because it is deemed incestuous and a form of genetic Russian roulette.
The Victorian era deemed kinship marriages as an egregious taboo not to be broken. Are we now transcending this long-standing prohibition?
In the United States, first cousin marriage is legal in some states and illegal in others. Perhaps not surprisingly those states that permit such marriages are in the deep south and in liberal blue states like California, New York, and Connecticut.
As was evidenced recently in Sweden, a combination of incest, pedophilia, and all of the dictates of spousal abuse that accompany different aspect of sharia law are becoming normalized in the West.
“A court in Sweden has ruled in favor of a marriage between a 14-year-old Syrian Refugee and her 21-year-old husband, who is also her cousin. The court made the ruling on the basis that the teenager appears to be “mature,” as well as for religious and cultural reasons.”
According to reports on the Internet and from Black Pigeon Speaks latest video this story out of the ever-progressive country of Sweden is, in fact, 100% true.
She is now pregnant.
