    Saudi Arabia should 'curb marriages within relatives', says genetics researcher

    Riyadh: A scheme to curb marriages within relatives in Saudi Arabia is being intensified with a compulsory pre-marriage medical tests now broached to cut the high rate of genetic diseases among the population.

    Dr Ayman Al Sulaiman, a genetic researcher and consultant at King Faisal Hospital in the capital Riyadh, told Saudi TV that a 2004 survey showed endogamy (marriage between close kin of the first or second degree or even in the same family) in Saudi Arabia was around 53 per cent. Now, that figure has climbed to 67 per cent.
    “There should be intensified efforts to curb marriages within relatives," he said. "In this respect, I suggest compulsory pre-marriage medical tests.”
    A drive to discourage marriage among relatives among Saudis was introduced 11 years ago.


    The state-supported programme, dubbed 'Healthy Marriage', discourages endogamy. It has reported that 3.25 million Saudis seeking to marry relatives were tested since its founding 11 years ago.
    Dr Al Sulaiman said the drive had succeeded in persuading at least 60 per cent of them not to go ahead with the marriage within close relatives.

    “In the beginning, the response was below eight per cent… we are now encouraged to reach a response rate of 100 per cent,” said Dr Al Sulaiman.
    Another expert warned that the practice of endogamy, if left uncurbed, could mean genetic diseases would remain high.
    In 2014, the head of the Embryology Unit in Al-Ahsa Maternity and Children Hospital, Dr. Nihad Al-Kashi, blamed endogamy for up to 70 percent of fetal abnormalities in Saudi Arabia's Al-Ahsa region, according to an Arab News report.
    Dr Al Sulaiman said Saudi population faces genetic diseases no other country has and has one of the highest genetic disease rates in the world, estimated at one per 1,000. This compares with one per 4,000 in the United States and one per 8,000 in Japan.
    "This means the ratio of genetic diseases in Saudi Arabia is almost eight times that of Japan,” he told Saudi TV.

    It might explain some of the eccentricities of this lunatic race.

    Having worked in Saudi Arabian hospitals, it was very clear that a very high rate of birth anomolies was directly related to one marrying within ones own tribe. From this inbreeding the Saudis have managed to completely eliminate the common sense gene.

    Something similar exists in Thailand and the southern states of the US along with other countires where marrying within ones own family is acceptable.

    The Saudis will never change as the Thais will also never change.

    Not just the Saudis.

    Cousin marriage is common throughout Muslim countries, Pakistan has the highest rate, < 70% +.

    It certainly does.

    Add that fact to serious Friday mosque attendance and indoctrination from the imam.

    Result?

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    Didnt say just in Saudi, but that is where I witnessed the results first hand. I have never been to Pakistan or any other Middle East country, but would expect similar results wherever a tribal culture exists.

    It'd be interesting to see it mapped out.
    Extent of inter familiar marriages and/or conjoining/incest versus degrees of religious fanaticism.

    Of course they will all ignore it because they want to keep the family money in the family.

    And that in a nutshell is exactly what it's all about.

    One only needs look at royal families throughout the world throughout the world for further evidence. All of the Eurpopean & Russian royal families were closely related. Must have been a bit awkward at family get togethers when various of the nations were at war.

    That would be the reasoning behind their good looks.

    Beat me to it...

    Of course, the occasional film star or model will improve the looks, but that doesn't make up for all the negative and sickly genes...

    indeed, but for an up close look, just take a walk through bradford or down the sukhumvit road to arabtown and play spot the bug eyed chinless freak.
