Old post currently being commented on.
This brings up another deep thought. Ever wonder why high IQ Jews and Palestinians can’t get along? Could it be because the Arab IQ is so inbred and low? How much can one blame on the Jews?
Needless to say, I strongly disagree with the thrust of this argument. The Palestinian people are native to that land, and their IQ figure is about in line with other Arab nations in the region. The problem is not that Arabs are dumb. The problem is that that is the Arabs’ land and the thieving, murdering Jews stole it and are currently stealing more of it at gunpoint, and they shoot and kill any Arabs who tries to stop these degenerate kleptomaniacs. 100% of the Palestinians’ problems are due to the thieving, murdering Jews. Without that bugbear, their problems would be the same as those of any of the other Arab countries around, as in quite manageable.
However, it does bring up an interesting question regarding what the IQ’s are of the Israelis and the Palestinians. After a bit of Googling around, I found these figures:
Ethnic group IQ Israeli Ashkenazim 107 Israeli Jewish 100 Israeli Sephardic 99 Israeli total 98 Israeli Mizrachi 93 Israeli Arabs/Palestinians 85
Most figures are from here. Israeli Ashkenazim figure is from here. Better figures including a study by James Flynn are here (Flynn 1998; Kaniel and Fisherman 1991). This page seems to prove that Lynn’s widely cited 94-95 figure for Israel is wrong and a better figure is 98. The figure for Palestinians is a result of a recent study done by Richard Lynn (Bakhieta and Lynn 2014).
Feel free to discuss and make of these figures what you will.
