    The answer is Islam - it trains people to be mentally moronic as an article of faith. The smartest people in the world used to live in North Africa, from Carthage to Egypt. The most poetic people used to live in the Near East, from Canaan to Persia. And all of that was maintained through the Christian era even when Western Europe was living in the Dark Ages. It's only after the Ummah became the rule that intelligence took a nosedive.

    No, only Maghrebis and Yemenis have any significant sub Saharan ancestry

    It doesn't make sense because Nafris are the ones with highest Subsaharan ancestry

    If it's a real phenomenon (and we know that shithole problems like childhood malnutrition frick with the IQ of future generations) it's because repeated cousin marriage is terrible for the genome

      But it's not exactly repeated since they do marry out or with other villages. Isolated Bedouins aren't really the norm.

        yeah that's why it's 90 and not 80 and why the bedouin states are doing worst

    comically high consanguinity rates (as much as 30% in Saudi Arabia in Gaza.

    For those wondering Palestinian IQ stats they are as follows:
    Gaza is 67.9
    West Bank is 76
    Palestinians in Israel are 81

      i dunno why israeli shills constantly talk about how stupid palis are. it makes your own military failures towards them look even more pathetic.

      that's like the best proof anyone could ask for of a heavy environmental effect on IQ, they're the same fricking people and yet you see almost a full standard deviation of difference (and over that if you compare Syria/Jordan to Gaza, who are also basically the same people)

        But they aren't the same people. Palestinians in Israel were not randomly drawn from Palestinians in the west Bank. There was a selection process.

        The Palestinians in Israel are the ones rich enough to bribe their way in or rich enough or educated enough in law to legally force their way win, or they're the ones with a more libertarian, individualistic personality who don't care about their ancestral home as much (positively correlated with IQ)

        Palestinians in ISrael are disproportionately drawn from the most successful and highest IQ segments of the palestinian ethnic group.

        So this will also explain some of the difference in the IQ between the groups in addition to environmental effects like nutrition and education.

    IQ is just a metric for how well you buy into the abstract and the unreal that is shat out by modern society.

    it is going to be a combination of multiple factors such as sub-saharan ancestry, high consanguinity rates, a higher ingroup preference that might select negatively for IQ, polygamy might also put negative pressure on IQ, and lastly, I would argue that in some unique places, the Jiyza put on non-Muslims selected for the people who cannot pay to join the religion, therefore selecting the least intelligent of the non-Muslim population to be removed from it creating a eugenic filter on the dhimmi population and dumping the lowest performing population on the Muslim majority (e.g. Coptic Christians in Eygpt). This is how you get the modern IQ levels in the MENA.

      isn't that simply due to the American selective immigration policy

    subsaharan admixture might have a small effect but mostly it's caused by multigenerational cousin marriage.
    Multigenerational cousin marriage depresses IQ in 2 ways.
    1. makes you more inbred which depresses IQ
    2. it prevents assortative mating which is part of what allowed Europeans to raise their IQs.

    Assortative mating is when men tend to choose to mate with women who match their genetic potential for IQ or raising their socioeconomic status. This causes populations to become more dispersed in terms of IQ and combined with a selection pressure filtering out the stupidest and causing them to have fewer kids, it means the population will select for high IQ quicker than if there is no assortative mating.
    Assortative mating is essentially leverage for any pre-existing selection effect and helps it happen faster.
