I would like to offer a further analysis on Israeli Ashkenazis.
20% Arabs at 83 --> total IQ share of population = 20*83/100
40% Sephardim's at 88 --> total IQ share of population = 40*88/100
40% Ashkenazi's at x points --> total IQ share of population = 40*x/100
So the IQ of Israeli Ashkenazi's is= x=211/2 = 105.5 Strangely low...
Let's go the other way and assume that Israeli Ashkenazis are about as smart as the European Jews. Let's x stands for the average IQ of the Arabs and the Arabic Jews.
The average IQ of Arabs and Sephardims = x=80
Three conclusions are possible:
According to the information that I was able to find, the IQ of European Jews have been consistently measured to 115- 117 ever since the testing of ethnic groups begun in early 1900s. We will now consider a period of one century, where at least two million European Jews immigrated to both Israel and America.
For the sake of the analysis let's assume that the European Jews who immigrated to Israel had a lower average IQ then the Jews who went to America. If this were true, then
If genetic theory was true, than there would have to be another possibility: That both the Jews who went to Israel, and the ones that went to America had lower IQ than the average European Jews. However, if this was the case, then Average IQ of European Jews would have gone up. (Obviously when so many Jews with lower IQ have gone to Israel and the US, then remaining population and their children would have higher IQ. This does not appear to be the case. There are no results showing any increase in IQ of European Jews in the last century.
I consider this to be a strong proof for: a.) The Ashkenazi's who went to Israel did not have lower IQ than the rest of European Jews, and
