    Extreme genetic defects and lowered IQ -to the point of mental disability - are a direct result of interfamilial marriages.Risk of recurrence in autosomal recessive disorders( where EACH parent must carry a copy of the affected gene) is high in consanguineous marriages. The Saudis have the highest rate in the world for these types of marriages- 60 %. This is followed by Iraq( 58 %), Kuwait( 55 %) and Jordan ( 50 %). Unfortunately, the lowered Arab IQ is only too evident ( even in 2nd and 3rd generation Muslim immigrants who were educated in 1st world countries). In 2005 the Arab Fund for Social and Economic Development released a study that shows; - No Arab country spends more than 0.2 % of GNP on scientific research. -Only 18 computers per 1000 people in the Arab world( global average is 78 per 1000) -370 industrial patents were issued to people in Arab countries 1980-2000. During the same time period, South Korea had 16,000. This is a grim record of ABJECT FAILURE and POOR GENES

The dating shame: Orthodox obsession with externals

As a married woman, I get to see the other side of the dating world these days – that of the ‘matchmaker’ – and wonder what message is being sent to my generation of bright, religiously passionate women
