Here is a marvellous quote from a book by Muslim politician Alija Izzetbegovic about human inequality. Also, my further reflections on race and IQ.


Alija Izetbegović was the first president of Bosnia-Herzegovina. He died in 2003. The extract is from his book Islam Between East and West.

I agree with every word above. The only real basis for human equality is our createdness before God. In every other respect we are very unequal.

Persistent differences in the average IQ of different groups (including races) have been the subject of study by scientists for decades, although most of this research has been conducted quietly and out of the view of the public due to its sensitive nature.

The existence of gaps in average IQ between the races is now firmly established, and is no longer controversial among scientists who study human intelligence.

The biggest remaining controversy is over the reason for the gaps: Are they due to genetic differences between groups or to differences in the environments to which each is exposed?

But even this central controversy can be more narrowly expressed now that the majority of scientists have come to believe that both genes and environment play at least some role in group IQ differences, and the question has therefore become:

How much of a particular gap –- for example, that between Americans of African ancestry and Americans of European ancestry — is due to the influences of the environment (“nurture”), and how much to differences in genetic make-up (“nature”)?

Most scientists studying human intelligence believe race IQ gaps are due to a combination of both genetic and environmental factors.

The only real controversy is over the share of each.

The share of each may be anywhere from large to negligible. Time will tell. But the current indications suggest it is highly probable that genetics make a significant contribution to average IQ differences between the races.

  1. He doesn’t see the irony that his own religion causes men to be unequal on religious grounds.

    The non-Muslim has no spiritual value before Allah as he is the worst of all creatures according to the Koran.

      • Because Muslims would never be commanded to do to their fellow Muslims what Allah commands them to do to non-Muslims, namely to fight, enslave, dispossess and disempower them until they are in a state of submission to Islam.

        This proves an absolute inequality between Muslim and non-Muslim under the governance of Shariah.

      • Kenny, He God Almighty is The Most Merciful who forgives All sins, except one colossal sin – To worship other deities, gods or ‘persons’ alongside Him – Trinitarianism is one of many forms of polytheism and is a tremendous sin that breaches pure monotheism

        God proclaims:

        “Verily, God forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with God in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin” 4:48

        Also, God says: “Say: O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls ! Despair not of the Mercy of God: for God forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

        God declares:

        “And they were commanded not, but that they should worship God, and worship none but Him Alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and perform prayer and give charity: and that is the right religion.” 98:5

        Just as Jesus professed and declared as His God commanded him to obey:

        “it is written and FOREVER REMAINS written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him ONLY ’” and Jesus also affirmed that the Lord Thy God “is One and there is no other but HIM”

        The triune idol god you worship Kenny is a false notion of God unknown to the Biblical forefathers – Trinitarian polytheists have disobeyed Him God Almighty by breaching biblical Jewish monotheism

        “Verily, those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture and the Pagans will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.” 98:6

        Kenny, keep your love and respect for Jesus and be like him and obey and worship His God alone and abandon trinitarian polytheism and God Will forgive you

        God says: “Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for God will change the evil of such persons into good, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful,” (Sura: 70)

        Jesus the Messiah and Prophet worshipped and prayed to his God alone:

        “One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God” Luke 6:12

        “After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone” Matthew 14:23

        “But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray” Luke 5:16

      • Kenny, if you keep turning people away from worshipping Him the One God of Moses and Jesus by stubbornly calling people to the worship of 3 distinct personal separate gods/deities unknown to Jesus and Biblical Jewish monotheism, then God will not look at you with any pity for your tremendous sin you commit:

        “Your brother, your mother’s son, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your friend who is as your own soul, might tempt you in secret. They might say, ‘Let us go and worship other gods’ (whom you and your fathers have not known. 7 They might be gods of the nations who are around you, near you, or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other). 8 Do not agree with him or listen to him. Do not look on him with pity. And do not show him loving-kindness or hide him. 9 You must kill him. Your hand should be first against him to put him to death, and then the hand of all the people. 10 Kill him with stones, because he has tried to turn you away from the Lord your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the land where you were servants. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid. No one will do such a sinful thing among you again.”Deut 13:6-11

      The title of worst of creatures/creation is given to all those who disobey God and transgress his limits. This can and will include some Muslims should they meet said criteria

      Abu Dharr reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:

      “Verily there would arise from my Ummah after me or soon after me a group (of people) who would recite the Qur’an, but it would not go beyond their throats, and they would pass clean through their religion just as the arrow passes through the prey, and they would never come back to it. They would be the worst among the creation and the creatures.”

      But since you brought it up Erasmus what “spiritual value” does a non believer in Christianity have to God?
