Endnote on Jewish IQ :
ASHKENAZI JEWS : Unlike the average Jew in Israel whose IQ is given above as 94, the Ashkenazi Jew is said to have an average IQ of 117: 10 points above the Hong Kong Chinese (107), 20 points above the Canadians (97), 30 points above the Mexicans (87), and 50 points above the Nigerians (67).
The 2005 paper Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence by Cochran , Hardy, and Harpending , argued on the basis of inherited diseases and the peculiar economic situation of Ashkenazi Jews in medieval Europe , that Ashkenazi Jews as a group now inherit a cognitive profile that includes higher verbal and mathematical intelligence than other ethnic groups, along with lower spatial intelligence .
One observational basis for inferring that Ashkenazi Jews have high intelligence is their prevalence in intellectually demanding fields. From 1901 2010, 21.5% of Nobel Prize winners were Jewish, while Jews make up a much smaller fraction of the population of the countries represented. For example, 36% of Nobel Prize winners from the United States have been Jewish, while Jews make up 2.1% of the U.S. population.
G. Cochran, J. Hardy and H. Harpending additionally cite the disproportionately high percentage of Ashkenazi Chess Grandmasters and Fields Medalists in mathematics, as well as winners of the Turing Award in computer science.
Their median IQ is calculated at 117 in From Chance to Choice: Genetics and Justice (2000), published by Cambridge University Press. This is 10 points higher than the generally-accepted IQ of their closest rivals Northeast Asians and almost 20% higher than the global average.
Other researchers who study the Ashkenazim have asserted an IQ number a bit lower than 117, but all have agreed that these children of Abraham are on top of the IQ chart. Plus, contemplate this astounding tidbit: Ashkenazi visual-spatial test scores are typically lower than the norm; this means their abilities in the other two categories, language and math, are absolutely astounding.
Nobel Prizes: Since 1950, 29% of the awards have gone to Ashkenazim, even though they represent only 0.25% of humanity. Ashkenazi achievement in this arena is 117 times greater than their population.
Hungary in the 1930s: Ashkenazim were 6% of the population, but they comprised 55.7% of physicians, 49.2% of attorneys, 30.4% of engineers, and 59.4% of bank officers; plus, they owned 49.4% of the metallurgy industry, 41.6% of machine manufacturing, 72.8% of clothing manufacturing, and, as housing owners, they received 45.1% of Budapest rental income. Jews were similarly successful in nearby nations, like Poland and Germany.
USA (today): Ashkenazi Jews comprise 2.2% of the USA population, but they represent 30% of faculty at elite colleges, 21% of Ivy League students, 25% of the Turing Award winners, 23% of the wealthiest Americans, and 38% of the Oscar-winning film directors.
Israel: In 1922, this swamp and desert land was inhabited by an impoverished population of 752,000. Today there are 7,746,000 residents, with an Ashkenazi majority that have elevated it into a high-tech entrepreneurial nation with the highest per capita income in the region.
The simplest explanation for the huge IQ difference between the fair-skinned Ashkenazi Jews and swarthier Jews of Semitic appearance (e.g., Sephardic Jews) is a so-called conspiracy theory known as the Khazarian thesis .
Popularized by Arthur Koestler in The Thirtheenth Tribe and accepted by notable Jewish scholars themselves (e.g. Prof. Shlomo Sand), this basically states that the Ashkenazi Jews are false Jews or aliens of an entirely different race masquerading as Semitic Jews.
Originating in a region known as Khazaria , these Turko-Tartaric tribes converted to Judaism in the 8th century. So they were Jews only by religious conversion, not by blood. As such, being essentially false Jews , they have no historic link to the Holy Land and no Biblical claim whatever to Palestine.
KHAZARIA: ORIGINAL HOMELAND OF THE ASHKENAZI JEWS

Descended from the Khazars , a Turkic race originally from Central Asia and related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes, the ancestors of the Ashkenazi Jews had settled in Khazaria in the Black Sea/Caspian Sea area at some point in the Dark Ages.
Of wholly Asiatic origin, they became Jews later only by religious conversion in the 8th century.
This is controversial. Because, if true, it means that Ahhkenazi Jews have no ancestral links with the Holy Land. Abraham and Moses were NOT their ancestors. Any claim made to Palestine on Biblical grounds by Ashkenazi Jews ~ who comprise the bulk of Israel s population today ~ would therefore be a spurious claim.
The Khazarian thesis of Koestler has been rejected by other notable scholars. Prof. Kevin MacDonald is one of these. He states categorically:

Modern population genetic studies show conclusively that Jews are indeed an ethnic entity and that widely dispersed Jewish groups are more similar to each other than to the peoples they have lived among for hundreds or thousands of years. (See here ).
The are two significant weaknesses with this anti-Khazarian thesis, i.e., with the idea that Ashkenazi Jews and other Jews are pretty much the same and originate from the same Semitic race that produced Abraham and Moses.
(1)
Studies that show genetic similarities between Ashkenazi Jews and other widely dispersed Jewish groups do not necessarily disprove the Khazarian thesis. This is because intermarriage between the Ashkenazis and the non-Askenazi or Semitic Jews was frequent in Khazaria from the 8th century onward, and indeed anywhere else in the world where the fair-skinned Khazarian Jews (= Jews by conversion) mingled with and married the darker Semitic Jews.
(2)
The huge gap of 23 points between the IQ levels of Israeli Jews (94) and Ashkenazi Jews (117) cannot be satisfactorily explained if we believe, as MacDonald states,
that Jews are indeed an ethnic entity and that widely dispersed Jewish groups are more similar to each other than to the peoples they have lived among for hundreds or thousands of years.
If we examine the IQs of the Northeast Asians, for example, we note that these genetically related races all have very similar IQs: Hong Kong Chinese (107), South Koreans (106), North Koreans (105), Japanese (105), Taiwanese (104), Mainland Chinese (100). None of these genetically related races is 23 points higher than any of the others, though taken as a whole they are 23 points higher than most of the African races. The conclusion is obvious: the fact that the Northeast Asians and the Africans have such a huge difference in their IQs is a proof, if any were needed, that these races are genetically unrelated .
If we take the European or Caucasian races, we note exactly the same thing: a striking similarity of IQs: Germany (102), Austria (102), Italy (102), Netherlands (102), Sweden (101), Switzerland (101), Belgium (100), UK (100), Spain (99), Hungary (99), Poland (99), France (98), Denmark (98), Norway (98).
Note that not one of these European races is 23 points higher in IQ than any of the others, though taken as a whole they are 23 pints higher than the African nations. The conclusion is again obvious: the fact that the Europeans and the Africans have such a huge difference in their IQs is a proof, if any were needed, that Europeans and Africans are genetically unrelated .
From this we arrive at the indisputable conclusion that huge differences in IQ between one group and another group essentially means that the groups belong to different races. If, for example, every Caucasian nation mentioned above had similar IQs of around 100, but ONE European nation, Ruritania, had an average IQ of 123, one would have to conclude that the Ruritarians did not really belong to the same Caucasian race as all the others.
It is this that gives credence to Koestler s Khazarian thesis: that the Ashkenazi Jews are not really Jews, and that they are Jews only by conversion to Judaism.
CONCLUSION: The 23 point difference in IQs between Ashkenazis and non-Ashkenazis would seem to demonstrate conclusively that these people belong to entirely different races . If they belonged to the same Semitic race, they would follow the general rule of having similar IQs.
Speaking of anti-Semitism, Koestler was to write that it was based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims.
The story of the Khazar Empire, he went on to add, gave an entirely new twist to the distorted view that all Jews were genetically related and belonged to the same Semitic race.
This began to look, he concluded controversially, like the cruelest hoax which history has ever perpetrated.
