Sephardic or askenazi genes? you need to know.. For sure, the sephardic do have merely levantine genes as the others have in that region. Askenazis have nothing different from the average europeans. Check where the civilization started and you will know where the smarter genes were located. As far as I know, the northern china, (including korea) is included. But the middle east is clearly its true craddle. Again you can see that it is not a matter of genes, but rather a matter of economic and environmental factors. What is your personal credit if you only inherit this feature. You'll be an idiot in being proud of it, so not smart at all.
