Dr Pipes

Inbreeding in Islamic countries is a serious health problem as Muslim men and women can marry (and they do) their cousins and it is based on Q4:23

http://quranx.com/4.23?Context=3

Now, check this article from the New York Times "Saudi Arabia awakes to the perils of inbreeding" Yes it is in the NYT but wait the article was published on May 1/2003! This was a time when an honest examination of Islam was taking place

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/05/01/world/saudi-arabia-awakes-to-the-perils-of-inbreeding.html

I doubt very much that such article would be published in the NYT now in 2017 because the Regressive Left will accuse even the NYT of Islamophobia
