Muslim “Civilization”: Qatar Worried About Inbreeding, Brings Israeli Jew to Warn About Arab Disease

By Debbie Schlussel

Whenever people tell me that the clash between the West and Islam is a “clash of civilizations,” I take issue with that, because it relies on an underlying false premise that theirs (Islam’s) is actually a civilization. Here’s yet more proof that it isn’t.


Israeli Jew, Professor Ohad Birk, Studies Inbred Diseases in Arabs

The Al-Thani Family, which rules Qatar and owns, funds, and operates Al-Jazeera, also funds a series of debates over resolutions, which are often enacted into law in Qatar. These debates, “The Doha Debates,” are organized and funded by the royal family’s Qatar Foundation. It recently held a debate on a resolution discouraging marriage between close family members, with the resolution:

This House believes marriage between close family members should be discouraged

And, because they could find few Arab Muslims advocating this view, the Qataris–in order to bolster the case against inbreeding– apparently waived their traditional apartheid banning Israeli Jews, by welcoming Professor Ohad Birk into the country. Birk heads the Genetics Institute at Soroka Medical Center and of the Kahn Genetics Research Center at the Ben Gurion University National Institute for Biotechnology in Israel’s Negev.

As is well-known to anyone who knows anything about the Muslim world, the significantly high rates of Muslim–particularly Arab Muslim–inbreeding result in a much higher percentage of births afflicted with diseases and deformities than in the non-Muslim world. (It’s partially done out of a tradition of keeping property and inheritances within the clan, but it’s a backward, uncivilized behavior.) And they’ve brought it here via immigration. You can see it in Deabornistan, where there are many children with odd birth defects, disfigurements, and obvious ailments–the products of relationships between close Muslim family members.

Professor Birk studies this and has proven, yet again, that Islamic life isn’t particularly healthy:

Through his research he has discovered more than 20 hereditary human diseases, mostly in inbred Arab communities. His findings have led him to set up a carrier screening programme for severe genetic diseases, that helps reduce infant mortality in those communities.

Yes, it’s the Jewish doctors and scientists who, sadly, are the ones that study and develop new ways to better and extend the lives of those who hate and seek to destroy us.

Isn’t that always the way?

The Arabs have near zero fertility rates.

And the joke is on them if they need the hated Jews to treat the problem of their impending near-extinction.

Personally, I’d leave to them to their own devices. The problem is they won’t leave us alone until they are too enfeebled to overcome us.

NormanF on April 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    Well, yes! Leave them to their own devises; for, as one of the wise stated so long ago: “Should we strengthen the hands of those who despise and hate all good?”, . . .

    I agree with those who say that, something like “the big lie”, Islam operates very much less a religion, as so very much more a criminal ideology invented by bad men and developed for the maintenance of bad men, . . . an anchor about the neck both of its adherents, but also, to the larger world who are striving for realization of worthy ideals, . . .

    PhillipGaley on April 13, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    NormanF, you said the Arabs have near zero fertility rates. I don’t think that’s accurate.

    It’s seems to be true that the most rapid fertility decline in recorded history has taken place not in the Arab world, but in Iran. A generation ago, a typical Iranian couple had 7 or 8 children. Now the number is something like 1.2. That’s well below replacement rate of about 2.1, but it’s well above zero.

    I think Saudi Arabia and various other Arab nations are still above replacement rate.

This is also a problem of some significance in Kentucky.

Richard on April 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Insert your own hillbilly, inbred joke here….but what I am reading here is that the problem is that it isn’t apparent to these uncivilized heathens that what they practice from centuries old rituals is actually harming them and future generations. In Kentucky, it is likely done more out of convenience and the fact that it is damn hard to get a date with a mouth full of rotted teeth (or none at all). This seems to go beyond the Kentucky/West Virginia credo of “incest is best, put your sister to the test”.

TS likes DS on April 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    I actually have practiced medicine in rural Kentucky (5 years). No joke, incest IS a problem there.

    One day the Arabs will wake up and start investing in Israel and make tons of cash from Jewish brains.

    By the way, my in-laws are rural Alabamans, and I practiced medicine in rural Alabama for 7 years—no incest problems there.

    Kentucky was a border state that sided with the North in the Civil War; despite all the Stars and Bars their descendants wave, this is a Yankee problem. The largest KKK organizations in the 1920s were in Indiana; yup, another Yankee state.

    (I was born in Chi-Town; I, too, am a Yankee. Incidentally, my wife, whose family comes from Winston County, had relatives who fought for the North as Winston County seceeded from Alabama.)

    Kentucky is a shite-head state; the Presbyteriannazi Church (USA) is headquartered there, damn their black souls.

    Occam's Tool on April 12, 2012 at 5:06 pm

I didn’t choose Kentucky in my comment merely for the sake of humor. My brother, now a clinical psychologist, lived in Louisville KY for a year. He told me that walking around the town he observed a good number of people exhibiting a particular birth defect (I don’t remember what it was) that was caused by a double-recessive gene. How is it that that gene becomes expressed? Yep, incest.

Before he left the state that brother of mine got into a bit of trouble with the authorities. They accused him of smuggling books. He got off on a technicality though; no one in Kentucky could prove they were books.

Richard on April 12, 2012 at 4:14 pm

@ Richard, your brother’s claimed observations are tenuous at best and purely anecdotal, if even true.

“Hillbilly” jokes and bashing is merely a form of ugly white self-loathing and “acceptable”, politically-correct prejudice.

Plenty of salt-of-the-earth, good people from these States, certainly preferable, to me, anyway, than a bunch of self-important, pseudo-intellectual urbanites.

When the sh*t hits the fan, and it invariably will, I’d rather fight alongside a “hillbilly” than a Teva sandals-wearing, Prius-driving, urban metrosexual psychologist who would try to “reason” with muslim terrorists.

DS_ROCKS! on April 12, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Clearly my brother’s purely anectdotal claimed observation touched a nerve. And so your response is to build a straw man to knock down. In contrast we have Occam’s response, that of a physician, which clearly supports my brother’s observation.

    Richard on April 12, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Rocks – does salt of the earth mean that they like to pepper their kin? The jokes exist because it is happening, so if you feel like when it all starts going down that you are better paired up with a ‘shine sipping sister humper, then go with that, as we know it is what makes the lovely country of ours lovely – choices. I simply don’t choose to look for someone to have relations with at the yearly family gathering.

Woe unto the taxpayers.

Guess who will pay for the treatment of most of these weird incest-driven diseases.

Oh gosh, now I am scared of Kentucky and I know it is used by effete, city-slicker Liberals as a stereotype….

Skunky on April 12, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Skunky, I would say that the Kentucky remarks are a distraction. In fact, some of the comments made are rather crude. First cousin marriages and other overly close familiy relations are endemic in Islam, and not just in the Arab world. As noted by Debbie, you are dealing with practices that are tribal practices designed to concentrate wealth within one clan or family. Purdah, arranged marriages to close relatives, greed, and generalized ignorance lead to problems of inbreeding in Islam.

    Worry01 on April 12, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Seriously, there is data on that from the British NHS on Pakistani birth defects.

    Occam's Tool on April 7, 2014 at 10:08 pm

Not to worry.

Qatar is civilized. They do not live as hunter-gatherers. There is a division of labor between trade specialties. This is the defining trait of civilizations.

Civilizations are not characterized by humane treatment of its society. The Roman and Egyptian civilizations were established facts but were not known for human treatment of human beings. Freedom should not be confused with civilization.

Qatar holds a manifest policy of anti-Semitism. It’s nice that they broke with that policy. I hold no great hope that this signals a significant change in Qatar’s domestic and international policy, but any break in the rigid manifest policy of anti-Semitism is always welcome.

In this case, it might be rather novel for a nation-state like Qatar to listen to the recommendations of an Israeli Jew. Who knows! Maybe this is one of those “baby steps” they will take to modernize their national policy. I’m not holding my breath, but I’m not yet reading this story as bad news.

There is NO Santa Claus on April 12, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Professor Birk should charge them through the nose, and then use the money back @ home to further his work interests. There’s no evidence that he’s like Judeophobic Jews, and so if he’s going to service them, might as well max out his profits.

At any rate, since this is a long standing Muslim tradition, the al Thanis’ chances of success here are about as high as they’d be were they to try to remove all anti-Infidel references from the quran.

Infidel on April 12, 2012 at 11:59 pm

It’s the ancient story of “can’t live… can’t live without…” In other words, as much as the Muslim hardcore hate Israel (read: “the Jews”), eventually they will realize that they are a brilliant people to emulate.

But Islam is power, and those who know how to wield the Koran like a sword can lead a nation of illiterates to victory. Too bad there are too many sects, too many self-styled “messiahs” to ensure that anything cohesive would ever develop. So maybe that little experiment might be another flash in the pan, a mirage in the desert of enforced spiritual and moral slavery.

Just saying, eh?

The Reverend Jacques on April 13, 2012 at 2:02 am

NormanF, you’re VERY wrong when you claim that “the Arabs have near zero fertility rates”… It’s “Western” people (which, for this purpose includes, Japanese, South Koreans and Australians) that have fertility rates that are below replenishment levels…

Leave aside non indigenous citizens and all across Europe the indigenous people are committing creeping national suicide… From Holland in the west to Russia in the east the indigenous people’s fertility rates are way below what’s required to keep their population levels at current levels…

The situation in the US isn’t much better!… Especially in the metropolitan areas (LA, SF, NYC etc)…

Hans on April 13, 2012 at 4:02 am

    Please read “How Civilizations Die” by David Goldman…

    Hans on April 13, 2012 at 4:07 am

I hate to say this….BUT this article showed me why trying to debate an Arab apologist is like talking to a brick wall——-they’re all inbred !!!

Now I understand. Maybe the liberals can now create a charity that teaches Arabs not to schtup their Mom, sisters, aunts, nieces, and cousins. It would be a public service.

Maybe they could have a PSA saying “Say Yes to your camel—No to your Momma”. -)

jimmyPx on April 13, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Does the expression “Schmuck” ring a bell? You are proof you do not have to be an Arab to be one.

    Ron Wolf aka "Columbo" on April 13, 2012 at 10:44 am

I owe you many favors, especially your support with the Haitham Masri incident. It is your message I disagree with not you. Both of us know Israel is in a fight for its life. As a movie critic you see reflections of the human tragic comedy. I too have grave reservations that Qatar will roll over and become followers of Mother Theresa (not literally).
However, with the nuclear sword of Damocles hanging can we not take a moment to celebrate this “kliner” miracle? Is there not something you or I can do to encourage such interchange.
Or, like that modern Haman Acmanidinajad do we proscribe to the tale of the proverbial scorpion on the railroad track that raises its sting in defiance of the oncoming locomotive.
I reitterate that Israel lost numerous opportunities to demonstrate to the world that we hold the high ground dictionary definition of civilization. Do I sound like Jimmy? I apologize, he did go too far but his premise was correct.
Qatar to my knowledge was not on the radar in 1948, and to my knowledge did not participate in Nasser’s dream to dominate the Arab world and destroy the State of Israel. Other than its extraordinary wealth and illusions of grandeur it is small potatoes.
In my nebish opinion Israel’s only hope of survival is to divide the enemy by making nice with some of these countries that are just as ready to slit each other’s throats as they are willing to unite against Israel. Why give them more fodder to use against us? If we are the people of the book do we not have a responsibility to teach?
My problem is with Islam. I cannot change Islam, only those that were born into that toxic environment can do that. Encourage these baby steps.
By the way we Jews do marry “second” cousins. Biblically we divided ourselves into tribes not disimilar to the disdained Bedouin. We even have class divisions aka the Cohains, the Levis, and the “rest”. We now divide ourselves further into the Sephardim, and the Ashkenazi.
Inbreeding is an unhealthy way of life in half the world, especially the mideast and is not confined to Moslems alone.
Ironically, the marriage of genetically and geographically isolated gene pools can produce new problems. You are correct that this is a large problem in the Arab world.

Ron Wolf aka "Columbo" on April 13, 2012 at 10:32 am

Another example of Israel and Jews protecting the world-not the other way around. Try to get this concept through to people who’re stuck on stupid and/or anti-semitic.

When we lived immersed among a mooslum dominated community decades ago, we encountered mooslums from all over the world who had married as DOUBLE cousins (two brothers marry two first cousin sisters, and then their children marry) and had children together. What was amazing to us was that some children were actually normal among all those clearly not normal. Affairs could account for some out-breeding. And, yes, it was all about keeping wealth and political position in the family.

What we have in pockets of “civilization” here are no doubt first cousins, siblings, and half-siblings interbreeding, but not necessarily marrying. If daytime TV is any indication, then we must have tens of thousands of males each impregnating half a dozen to a dozen females, then having their DNA paternity tests revealed before the entire viewing audience. Because the females breed with so many males, they have no idea who the sperm donors of their babies are. They even lose count among the possible candidates.

As a result, there must be rampant inbreeding in many communities where this thoughtless breeding is going on. No one knows who his or her father is, so no one knows who his or her siblings and cousins are. The kids repeat the thoughtless behavior of their “parents” with their pool of inbred choices for sexual partners, and so it goes.

But they’re not breeding to maintain family wealth or political position. Or are they–unknowingly? How do politicians exploit such groups? How do public policies maintain them?

Aurora on April 13, 2012 at 10:45 am

There will be no change in this centuries old practice because nobody in Qatar is going to take the side espoused by the Israeli Jew. This sounds more like comic relief or a publicity stunt. If the Qataris were serious about it then they wouldn’t have gotten a Jew to present it. There is probably a back story that explains why the organizers picked a Jew to deliver the “don’t have relations with your sister” side of the argument.

fred on April 13, 2012 at 2:35 pm

And, what would life be without a comic moment? And here’s one from dear old “Ron Wolf aka ‘Columbo'”: “You are correct that this is a large problem in the Arab world.”.

Brilliant deduction, there, “Ron Wolf aka ‘Columbo'”. Thanks, we needed that–and, no doubt, DS also, . . .

PhillipGaley on April 13, 2012 at 7:13 pm

The royal families of Europe and England are heavily inbred, as are many of those who were close supporters. I have the hereditary disease Porphyria,
which probably came down the centuries to me because of my ancestors’
close association with the Royal Stewarts. The present day royals are doing their best to marry healthy non-royals, but that dang gene is persistent.
Once it gets into a society associated with the royal gene, it spreads and persists.

Sex between moslem close-family members occurs when the guys need a change of pace from bacha boys.

Once again you point out the “civilization” overtaking the world with it’s violence. Once again you overlook a solution that needs some discussion…at least. If we believed in freedom which is based on the First Amendment we’d sift our financial and trade agreements based on that bright line. Unable to support the First Amendment in your parliament? No Visas, No Aid, No U.S. tax dollars of ANY type. No foreign entanglements with enemies of freedom. Why is Israel paying for research on diseases of line-bred savages? The old Communist quip that we’d be selling them the rope they hang is with is too old. We’ll borrow the money to send it to them free as a development project!!!

John on April 17, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Ms. Schlussel, has it dawned on you that Ashkenazi Jews, or the Jews of European extract, are often the most common carriers of several genetic defects, such as Taysachs, while their mizrahi, generally Arab, co-religionists do not share the same fate? Like most of your writing, this article is absolutely rife with half-truths and sloppy writing.
