Denmark is once AGAIN considering banning cousin marriages due to the prevalence of serious and rare birth defects found in the children born to these muslim couples.
"Cousin marriages is most common in families with Pakistani and Turkish roots. A Norwegian study from 2007 shows that a third of Pakistanis and a tenth of Turks are married with a cousin......According to Sygeplejersken (Nurse) journal, the risk for cousin couples to have children with a handicap or genetic disease is double the average."
There are even instances, cited, of muslim parents importing brides to marry off and consequently provide a permanent caretaker for their developmentally disabled sons. "many problems with retarded boys are solved with import brides, who are brought to the Netherlands to serve a sort of life imprisonment as a carer/spouse. LINK to above quotes (One wonders how many of these disabled sons were themselves the products of inbreeding)
Thus one glaring fact has emerged from the "culture" of Islam - an egregiously and sickening high rate of birth defects caused by muslim inbreeding. Muslims from Pakistan being the biggest offenders.
The same evidence of high levels of birth defects in muslim cousing marriages is apparent in Great Britain. So whilst in Britian the NHS is trying to prevent smokers, the obese and the elderly from receiving medical treatment - citing their lifestyles or age as justification to deny surgery, organ transplant, etc -- even though the vast majority of these people are long time British taxpayers -- there continues to be virtual silence on the choice of Pakistani muslims (often at least one partner is a recent immigrant) to marry their first cousins. The union of which is guaranteed to produce a high risk of major congenital birth defects amongst their progeny. A BBC report found :
Pakistanis in Britain, 55% of whom marry a first cousin, are 13 times more likely than the general population to produce children with genetic disorders, and that one in ten children of cousin marriages either dies in infancy or develops a serious disability. Thus Pakistani-Britons, who account for some 3% of all births in the UK, produce "just under a third of all British children with genetic illnesses."---- LINK
According to a past article in the Sunday Times: "the minister, who represents Oldham East and Saddleworth said: "If you talk to any primary care worker they will tell you that levels of disability among the . . . Pakistani population are higher than the general population. And everybody knows it's caused by first cousin marriage. "That's a cultural thing rather than a religious thing. It is not illegal in this country. "The problem is that many of the parents themselves and many of the public spokespeople are themselves products of first cousin marriages."
Ann Cryer MP, whose constituency has a large Pakistani population, has observed and stated that much of the Pakistani community is in denial about the problem. LINK It is clear that the majority of politicians, civic leaders and many health professionals are also wearing politically-correct blinders when it comes to confronting muslim intermarriage.
There is absolutely NO doubt that politicians and social leaders need to arise from worshipping at the altar of multiculturalism, dust off their knees, and make marriage between first cousins illegal and a reason to deny immigration into the UK. (and EU, USA, etc) This would not only help to relieve the enormous financial strain such marriages have brought to the British healthcare system but also would help to prevent another helpless child, who had no say in their origins, from undue suffering from multiple and often painful deformities and birth defects.
