Ashkenazi Jews Are More Intelligent Than Other People, Says This Jewish Columnist

JTA) — New York Times columnist Bret Stephens (pic above) came under fire on social media for an op ed in which he wrote that Ashkenazi Jews are more intelligent than other people and cited a paper by a researcher who promoted eugenics. The reference to the paper later was removed.

“The Secret of Jewish Genius” published on Saturday had received nearly 700 comments on the online edition of The Times by Sunday afternoon when the comments were closed. Many of the comments also thanked Stephens for his column and praised his conclusions.

The column cited a 2005 paper by researchers Gregory Cochran, Jason Hardy and Henry Harpending of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Utah stating that “Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average I.Q. of any ethnic group for which there are reliable data.

During the 20th century, they made up about 3 percent of the U.S. population but won 27 percent of the U.S. Nobel science prizes and 25 percent of the ACM Turing awards. They account for more than half of world chess champions.”

But the Southern Poverty Law Center said that Harpending was an anthropologist who possessed a white nationalist ideology and promoted eugenics, which was studied and practiced by the Nazis. The practice aims to improve a population’s genetic composition through selective breeding, as by sterilization.

The reference to the paper was removed later on Sunday. An editor’s note said, in part, that “Mr. Stephens was not endorsing the study or its authors’ views, but it was a mistake to cite it uncritically. The effect was to leave an impression with many readers that Mr. Stephens was arguing that Jews are genetically superior. That was not his intent.“

Before winning a Pulitzer Prize for commentary at The Wall Street Journal, Stephens was editor of The Jerusalem Post.

I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.

1 Response to Ashkenazi Jews Are More Intelligent Than Other People, Says This Jewish Columnist

    The Khazar Conversion to Judaism
    The estimate is that this occurred about the year 750

    As the thrust of this enquiring epistle is to define what is wrong; thus, this.

    I am going to designate the Khazar conversion to Judaism as, chronologically, the fourth consequential historical occurrence that continues to reverberate today. I first learned of this about twenty years ago. Seeking some confirmation of what I had heard I went to Chabad dot org to see what I might find. There I found it stated as an historical fact that indeed, 4000 of the Noblemen of the land of Khazar had converted to Judaism. And that many Rabbis had been called on to do the conversion.

    Now, those bare facts, bare as they may be, carry enormous implications. Implications that can be fleshed out by our own good intelligence. An intelligence and a character that was crafted in the hardships of the bitterly cold winters of the northern climes.

    But! This narrative conflicts with the Zionist narrative that they use to justify the forcible taking of the land of Palestine from the Palestinians. To the secular Goyim the Jews just claim that the land of Palestine is their ancient homeland. To the Christian Goyim, they claim that they are God’s chosen people. That is sufficient to cover any crime that they might commit.

    But, aware of this conflict, I searched Chabad dot org again, and no more do I find this reference to a Khazar conversion of the noblemen of that land of Khazar. Which is quite inline with what I expected to find.

    But, as it turns out, they just made it harder to find. The sage who recorded it, was Hasdai Ibn Shaprut. 4675-4735, or 915-975. https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/112514/jewish/Hasdai-Ibn-Shaprut.htm

    Jews have no qualms, in fact, that is something that Jews excel at, crafting a narrative that instructs the intellectually challenged Goyim to think and believe a narrative that instructs the Goyim to believe and to act in a way that will further the agenda of the Jew. There would be no qualms at manipulating the historical narrative.

    First, it is likely that the King on first blush expected that the whole of his Kingdom would convert. But on taking up the matter with the Rabbis, It became clear that to convert to Judaism, the candidate had to be literate and numerate. For the holy scriptures were intricate and complex. That left out the common people. For only the noblemen of the Kingdom were literate and numerate. Thus they would be the ones who would be allowed to convert to Judaism.

    Given the assumption that society in that era would have been patriarchal in nature, each nobleman would have probably brought a family with him. If the average family consisted of six members, those 4000 converts then became 24,000. As to the many Rabbis, lets be conservative, lets say, 100 Rabbis were called on to effect the conversion of the noblemen into Jews. Lets give each Rabbi a wife and four children. That adds up to 600 people.

    Given the hardship of travel in that day, and the consequential nature of a mass conversion into Judaism, it is probable that the bulk of the Rabbis who traveled to Khazar to effect the mass conversion, simply stayed and ministered to this new flock of Jews.

    That 4000 of the noblemen and their families converted to Judaism, and that there is an admix of 100 Rabbis and their families, means that this is not a people, not an ethnic group that occurred naturally in history.

    The criteria by which this group of people were selected resulted in the formation of an extraordinarily intelligent and driven group of people. Traits which routinely translate into material success.

    In as much as we prognosticate that the Rabbis called on to do the conversions, actually stayed and melded into the group of converts, it is fair to note that they also were an artificially selected group of people. As the Rabbi’s were the most highly educated and gifted of the society from whence they came, they too constituted a group of people artificially selected for intelligence and in the case of Rabbis, charisma.

    After some period of time the country was defeated and broken apart. But this group would have been held together by the caustic theology of Judaism. As wielded by a highly manipulative group of highly educated Rabbis.

    Ashkenazim Jews today point to common genetic markers as proof of the common heritage of the two peoples. Likely, over the centuries, most of the Rabbis called on to do the conversions and their families melded into this new group of converts. Likely this melding together of the Middle Eastern Jewish descendants of biblical Israelis and the Khazar converts was sufficient to place common genetic markers between these two formerly separate groups of peoples.

    It would seem that every religion has its own hook, with Judaism, you are one of Gods own chosen people. It can’t get much better than that. This select group of people was knit over the subsequent decades and centuries into a virtual ethnic group. There is no other people so driven and so intellectually gifted as this people.

    Ashkenazim Jews, on the average, test one standard deviation higher on the IQ scale than the average Gentile. About 15 points. That is a significant and a consequential number.

    This postulation answers the question of why there is no peasant or working class among the Ashkenazim Jews. It also answers the question of why or how it is that Ashkenazim Jews test so much higher on the IQ scale than any other ethnic group. It answers the question of how it is that the Jews produce so many, or, congruent with the enigma of the Jews, some might say, so few, charismatic leaders.

    There is one more question that begs an answer. Why antisemitism? Why has the Gentile world so uniformly responded negatively to the Jewish personae?

    What is antisemitism? The term has been thrown around so prolifically lately that the cutesy response has become, an anti-Semite is someone whom the Jews hate.

    But, seriously, an anti-Semite is someone who has been exposed to Jews, probably in a disadvantaged situation and has reacted negatively to their personae. In his mind he probably finds them to be guileful, petty, artful, inconsiderate and demanding. He will probably feel in all too many cases, that he has been victimized by them.

    Yes, there is something about the Jewish personae and I conjecture: Lets look at just one of the characteristics of a Kingship in this pre-Magna Carta era. The IRS. The internal revenue service. The tax collector.

    Then, as now, this would be the most high handed of all the Government Agencies. More, it would be substantially more labor intensive than today’s IRS. Of all the Kings men, this would be the largest grouping of educated elite functionaries.

    In that day they had not the advantage of computers and data bases. It would have been a hands on business. The tax collector was steely eyed, and uncompromising. He was corrupt and he knew the business of the subjects. He was not judged on how well liked he was. He was judged on how much money he collected for the king.

    The tax collector would have at his beck and call, all the power of the Kings Horsemen. He would be guileful bold and unhesitating in the use of that power of coercion. Honor and fairness was only a pretense in the practice of his profession.

    What kinds of personal characteristics would best serve this functionary, the tax collector? Compassionate? No! Dispassionate? Yes. Humble? No. Demanding? Yes. Humane? No. Inhumane? Yes.

    So yes, I am concluding that the largest segment of this Khazar people that converted to Judaism were in fact tax collectors. In fact, even after the State of Khazar collapsed, history reflects that tax collector was a profession which Jews seem to have gravitated to.

    Yes, I am postulating that a sizable segment of the Khazar’s who converted to Judaism were tax collectors and that they have brought with them, down through the ages, to this day and age, the very genetic coding that so advantaged them in that long ago despised cruel profession.

    This is a working theory which explains and answers otherwise unanswerable questions. With this snapshot of the genesis of this remarkable and elite people, the Ashkenazim Jews, it becomes reasonable and understandable, even to be expected that they would excel in finance. As well they do.

    Even too, as this was virtually the Government of that long ago land of Khazar, it is become understandable, that this virtual people, knit together by the chauvinism and the dogma of Judaism, would organize themselves into a virtual state within a state and that they would act in their own perceived best interest. As well they do, even today.

    As the acquisition and management of money is central to the business of government and most certainly was in the past business of a Kings Kingdom, it is to be expected that in that realm, the excellence of the Jew would be well displayed. And indeed it is. In spades.

    The advantages and possibilities of such an organized cohesive intellectually advantaged driven people are on display today. They are adept at the manipulation of people, governments and money. A very partial list of “The Zionist Matrix of Power”.; AIPAC, the ADL, the SPLC, the WZO, the AZO and Canary Mission.

    Dare one even say, control? As in J-Street, today we see many Jews becoming uneasy at the very success of Zionism as transmogrified from Judaism. As it is across the lines of civility as recognized by the great bulk of human society, and has a virtual lock grip on the United States Government.
