Racist Twaddle

Got this from ‘Haaretz’ today,” Genetic diseases prevalent among Ashkenazic Jews (of European descent) may actually be tied to a higher intelligence quotient, according to two American professors. Anthropology researches Gregory Cochran and Henry Harpending argue that neurological disorders such as Tay-Sachs and Canavan disease have made Jews smarter, due to what is known as heterozygote advantage.”(1)
Quite frightening actually and it goes without saying that we really don’t need nonsense like this and while I am sure that some Ashkenazi Jews, or rather Europeans, because that is what they are, are smart, I am also quite certain that a some of them are complete imbeciles.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
