See my 6 February 2008 comments about Ahmed Ben Bella here: http://skepticaltexascpa.blogspot.com/2008/02/woodrow-wilson-upside-down.html. Talk of hypocrisy. In 1972 I knew a resident at Columbia Presbyterian hospital in New York. He told me visiting Saudis insisted on Jewish surgeons. I asked him why. He said because they know Jewish doctors are the best. What frauds. Is the 5,000 to one ratio unexpected? Our friend, __La Griffe du Lion__ sheds some light on this. His February 2000 and September 2003 posts, http://lagriffedulion.f2s.com/dialogue.htm and http://lagriffedulion.f2s.com/ashkenaz.htm are instructive. We learn Nobel Laureates average IQ is 144, or +2.93 SD. At +2.50 SD measured IQs exhibit "fat tails" and +2.93 SD is not .9983 or one in 596 but about one in 250. With Jews IQ at one SD about the caucasian mean, 144 IQ is .9734, one in about 38 or eight times as common. We're not done. From __IQ and the Wealth of Nations__, I estimate the Islamic world's average IQ is 84. We're still not done. In these countries, to the extent measured, IQ SD is about 13, so 144 is 60 /13 or + 4.615 SD, roughly .999998 or one in 500,000; estimating the fat tail effect at 10X, we get one in 50,000. How many Ashkenzim are there worldwide with IQs over 144? 9 million / 38 or 237,000. How many Moslems? 1.45 billion / 50,000 or 29,000. Coincidence? We don't think so. If the Islamic world wants to advance, it should beg Jews to relocate to Islamic countries and throw the Koran's anti-Jewish passages in the garbage.

Spengler's ratios are misleading as he compared "stocks" and "flows", i.e., the number of Nobel Prizes awarded **over time** to numbers of people alive **today**. This comparison would make sense **if the ratio of Jews to Moslems** was stable since 1900. It was not. In 1950 there were 12 and 361 million Jews and Moslems, today there are 13 and 1,450 million respectively. The ratio changed from 1 to 30 to 1 to 111. Assuming an average ratio since 1900 of 50, we get one Nobel Prize for every 76,000 Jews alive in a given year and one per 217 million Moslems, a 2,855 to one ratio.

Part of IQ is training.

To whit, Moslems memorize the Koran uncritically and do not study it. Jews study the Torah and Talmud, and look at their aspects critically. The difference is critical thinking.

Have a look at "Nature Via Nurture" to see the interaction between training, practice and IQ.

Other than Sufism which has bred a number of brilliant folks, Islam simply breeds.

Ummm... interesting analysis IA...

Where does that leave US Islamic policy? Diplomacy to Dummies?
