Poor Malta, here they come!

Only yesterday I reported that Malta’s Prime Minister, Laurence Gonzi, said NOOOO! to taking more African immigrants from Libya or Tunisia.  I also reported that thousands are arriving on Italian islands (here).  Now, hat tip: Charles, we see that two boats packed (packed shoulder to shoulder!) arrived in Malta today with 500 Somalis and Eritreans aboard.

From the Times of Malta:

Two boats carrying some 500 Somali and Eritrean immigrants from Libya entered Malta this afternoon.

The first boat arrived in Dahlet Qorrot, the second at Haywharf at around 5.30 a.m. The Gozo boat was also escorted to Haywharf where it arrived at around 7.30 p.m.

The arrivals were the first in Malta this year and since the conflict between rebels and Gaddafi forces in Libya.

You must watch the film clip of one of the boats being brought in to dock that accompanies the story!  I hate to keep mentioning it, but if you read the almost four decades old French novel, The Camp of the Saints, you have already seen these packed boats in your mind’s eye.

Oh, and one more thing, although the news account says there were women and children aboard, it sure looks like a lot of young men to me.

Canada: Refugees have trouble fitting in and are thus drawn to gangs

Here is a story from Vancouver about the psychological problems related to trauma experienced by some immigrant and refugee youths.

From the Vancouver Sun:

He [Hieu Van Ngo, a PhD candidate with the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Social Work] said the numbers of refugee or immigrant youths who get involved in gangs isn’t known because Canada does not keep race-related crime statistics. And while Ngo said he suspects the majority of refugees don’t get into gangs, “We can’t be complacent by bringing refugees in and leaving them to struggle without supports.

“Are we setting up the school system so that it is responsive to students with complex needs? Across the country, a lot of times schools neglect to give ESL [English as a second language] support to young people,” he said.

Giving the example of the 14-yearold, Ngo said the boy didn’t do well in school because English wasn’t his first language and when he acted out, they expelled him.

Read on.

I have absolutely no doubt that this is a growing problem, not only in Canadian schools, but American ones as well.  In my view, first, there needs to be a vigorous debate about how many refugees a western country can handle financially and part of that decision must be made with these troubled youths in mind.

The taxpayers are going to have to decide if these young immigrants who were traumatized and in need of special education should get it—separate from the other students.  That will be very costly, but it’s pretty costly to society to hold back the educational progress of normal kids, and it’s pretty costly to cope with gang violence.

Unfortunately, refugee  and migration advocates won’t even let such a vigorous debate occur because they are too busy calling anyone who suggests a moratorium or a slowdown in the refugee flow to the First World a bunch of  evil hatemonger bigots, xenophobes and racists.

No immigration slowdown, or no special accommodations for troubled youths?  Then the next best thing is to get your kids out of public schools (as a starter)!

Is in-breeding causing a decline in IQ (and other maladies) among Muslims?

This is an interesting study and for posting it I’m sure to be called racist.  Islam permits and indeed encourages in-breeding and this author suggests it’s a growing problem in the West as Muslim immigrants bring the practice with them.  The cost to society is great.

The article made me think of the autism epidemic in Minneapolis among Somali children.  Interesting that two Islamic practices might be at fault and not those vaccines Muslims are avoiding—-lack of sunshine (Vitamin D) as pregnant women are completely covered in a far northern climate and in-breeding.

From Liveleak:

Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the intelligence, sanity, and health of their offspring, and on their surroundings.

Nicolai Sennels’ latest essay concerns the deleterious effects of cousin marriage within the Muslim world, and the impact the practice is having in Western countries with large numbers of Muslim immigrants.

Here is mention of a study from Denmark which is way ahead of the US in trying to cope with a large Muslim population.

The cognitive consequences of Muslim inbreeding might explain why non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the Danish army’s intelligence test than native Danes: “19.3% of non-Western immigrants are not able to pass the Danish army’s intelligence test. In comparison, only 4.7% of applicants with Danish background do not pass.” (TV 2 Nyhederne, 13/6 2007 “Immigrants flunk army test”). It probably also explains — at least partly — why two thirds of all immigrant school children with Arabic backgrounds are illiterate after ten years in the Danish school system: “Those who speak Arabic with their parents have an extreme tendency to lack reading ability — 64 percent are illiterate… No matter whether it concerns reading ability, mathematics, or science, the pattern is the same: the bilingual immigrants’ skills are exceedingly poor compared to their Danish classmates.” (Rockwool Foundation Research Unit [pdf], May 2007 “Ethnic students do not make Danish children worse”). The high expenses of special education for slow learners consumes one third of the budget for the Danish schools. “Immigrant children are clearly overrepresented on Copenhagen’s schools for retarded children and children with physical handicaps… 51 percent of the children in the three schools in Copenhagen for children with physical and mental handicaps have an immigrant background, and in one of the schools the figure is 70 percent… These amounts are significantly higher than the share of immigrant children in the municipality, which is 33 percent. The many handicapped children are clear evidence that there are many intermarried parents in the immigrant families.” (Jydske Vestkysten, 4/4 2009 “Tosprogede i overtal på handicapskoler”).

They have been in-breeding for 1400 years!   Ban first-cousin marriages.

There is no doubt that the widespread Muslim tradition of first-cousin marriages has harmed the gene pool among Muslims. Because Muslims’ religious beliefs prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevent them from adding fresh genetic material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago are most likely massive. The overwhelming direct and indirect human and societal consequences have been explained above.


A legislative ban on first cousin marriages is a logical and compassionate imperative for the Muslim world, the EU, and our Western national governments.
