IF—–you deliberatly kill many of your own citizens and then haul their dead bodies to the sites of Tomahawk missile strikes and weep and wail about the “civilian casualties”. That is what Muammar Ghadaffi has done. That, after having his own army troops fire from tanks and artillery into neighborhoods in cities like Bengazi, the last hold- out for Libyans who have tried to overthrow the MadMan who has ruled Libya as a dictator for over 40 years….after taking power in a military coup and never allowing anything close to a free election in all those years.
You may indeed be insane….or it is more likely that you are a Lunatic in the worst sense of that word.
I have been thinking about a long informative piece I read some months back about a tenet of the Muslim religion…that of marrying cousins and other close family members. I looked up the subject of the Muslim practice of cousins marrying first cousins and found one article in the “UK London Mail” and another longer article in www.rightsidenews.com that refreshed my memory.
The “Mail” article quoted British Environmental Minister Phil Woolas who commented on the surge of birth defects among British Muslim immigrants. Because of centuries of this close relative marriages among Muslims, there are now serious impacts on their sanity, intelligence, health….. and on their surroundings. The most famous cases of inbreeding and its catastrophic effects comes from ancient Egypt where intermarriage in close families in several Pharoanic dynasties caused the collapse of those dynasties after a couple of hundred years. In order to preserve their power, the Pharoahs often married their own sisters or half-sisters. After a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule. Close consanguine marriage between brothers and sisters was also practiced among the native Hawaiians. There were genetic consequences in that group of people also. The first outsiders who came to Hawaii were stunned to see this practice among the Hawiian ruling families.
“Statistical research on Arabic countries shows that up to 34% of all marriages in Algiers are consanguine (blood related). 46% in Bahrain, 33 % in Egypt, 80% in Nubia, 60% in Jordan, 64% in Kuwait, 42% in Lebanon, 48% in Libya, 47% in Mauritania, 54% in Quatar, 67% in Saudi Arabia, 63% in Sudan, 40% in Syria, 39% in Tunisia, 54% in the United Arab Emiratges, and 45% in Yemen.(Reproductive Health Journal, 2009 Consanguinity and reproductive health among Arabs.)
Studies conducted on consanguinity among Arasb/Muslims show several disturbing trends.
1. Low intelligence among those whose families are blood- related by marriages of too- closely related relatives
2. Mental and Physical diseases and death.
What caught my attention in thinking of the seemingly insane Ghadaffi, are these statistics found in professional medical journals.
“The clinical observations indicated that depression is very high in some communities where the consanguinity of marriages is also high.” (Indian Journal of Psychiatry 2009. “Relationship between consanguinity and depression in a south Indian population” (this is the Asian country of India)
“The increased risk of insanity amlong children of marriages between cousins might explain why immigrant patients are stressing the psychiatric system and are strongly over-represented among insane criminals….in Sct Hans Hospital which has the biggest ward for clinically insane crininals in Denmark, more than 40 percent of the patients have an immigrant background.” (Kristeligt Dagbald, 26/6 2007. “Ethnic minorities overrepresented among the criminal insane.”
(Anyone who wants to read the complete article can google “Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society” Tuesday, August 10 2010 by Nicholas Sennels.)
The recent…and past actions of Muammar Ghadaffi are an eerie reminder of what the scientists have said about the catastrophic effects of the practice of close, consanguine marriages in the Muslim world and the percentages of such relationships listed in an above paragraph are mind- boggling for many of the middle eastern nations.
In a guardian.co.uk article of March 20 (today) Liam Fox has written that the fly over action by united nations France, Britain and the USA may include targeting Ghadaffi. Coalition forces have been accused of disproportionate action against Tripoli…perhaps in an attempt to kill Gadhaffi.
One quote from Liam Fox’s piece says “Critics claim that the coalition of the willing may have been acting disprorportionately and had come perilously close to making Ghadaffi’s departure an explicit goal of UN policy.”
I have been thinking that the only real way to end the civil war in Libya is to kill Ghadaffi or capture him and turn him over to the International Court of Law for trial for crimes against his own people and the people of many other nations. After Libya was bombed badly in 1986 after intelligence showed that it was Libya behind the terrorist killings in a German nightclub that killed Americans and others, within 2 years after the bombing ordered by President Reagan, Ghadaffi ordered the bombing of the flight that exploded over Lockerbie,Scotland. His seeming insanity showed his inclinations for murder and terrorism again.
Now as he wails on international televsion about civilian casualties……he has no connection at all to his own massive crimes of violence and murder against his OWN people who have been forced (Libyan government says they are volunteers) to become “human shields” on the grounds of his compound.
Is this the reasoning of a man who is sane?
I think he is as “out of his mind” as other evil dictators of history… in the same camp as Stalin, Hitler, Ceaucescu, Saddam Hussein—-all the bloody killers of their own people in the long history of the world.
And I wonder about the inbreeding that has gone into the Ghadaffi clan in Libya.
