Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society

EuropeNews 9 August 2010
By Nicolai Sennels

Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring’s intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings

The most famous example of inbreeding is in ancient Egypt, where several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule. Another historical example is the royal houses of Europe where royal families often married among each other because tradition did not allow them to marry people of non-royal class.

The high amount of mentally retarded and handicapped royalties throughout European history shows the unhealthy consequences of this practice. Luckily, the royal families have now allowed themselves to marry for love and not just for status.

The Muslim culture still practices inbreeding and has been doing so for longer than any Egyptian dynasty. This practice also predates the world’s oldest monarchy (the Danish) by 300 years.

A rough estimate shows that close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred: In Pakistan, 70 percent of all marriages are between first cousins (so-called "consanguinity") and in Turkey the amount is between 25-30 percent (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009More stillbirths among immigrants"

Statistical research on Arabic countries shows that up to 34 percent of all marriages in Algiers are consanguine (blood related), 46 percent in Bahrain, 33 percent in Egypt, 80 percent in Nubia (southern area in Egypt), 60 percent in Iraq, 64 percent in Jordan, 64 percent in Kuwait, 42 percent in Lebanon, 48 percent in Libya, 47 percent in Mauritania, 54 percent in Qatar, 67 percent in Saudi Arabia, 63 percent in Sudan, 40 percent in Syria, 39 percent in Tunisia, 54 percent in the United Arabic Emirates and 45 percent in Yemen (Reproductive Health Journal, 2009 Consanguinity and reproductive health among Arabs.).

A large part of inbred Muslims are born from parents who are themselves inbred - which increase the risks of negative mental and physical consequenses greatly.

The amount of blood related marriages is lower among Muslim immigrants living in the West. Among Pakistanis living in Denmark the amount is down to 40 percent and 15 percent among Turkish immigrants (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 More stillbirths among immigrants".).


More than half of Pakistani immigrants living in Britain are intermarried:

The research, conducted by the BBC and broadcast to a shocked nation on Tuesday, found that at least 55% of the community was married to a first cousin. This is thought to be linked to the probability that a British Pakistani family is at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders.” (Times of India, 17/11 2005 Ban UK Pakistanis from marrying cousins).

The lower percentages might be because it is difficult to get the chosen family member to the country, or because health education is better in the West.


Low intelligence

Several studies show that children of consanguineous marriages have lower intelligence than children of non-related parents. Research shows that the IQ is 10-16 points lower in children born from related parents and that abilities related to social behavior develops slower in inbred babies:

"Effects of parental consanguinity on the cognitive and social behavior of children have been studied among the Ansari Muslims of Bhalgapur, Bihar.

IQ in inbred children (8-12 years old) is found to be lower (69 in rural and 79 in suburban populations) than that of the outbred ones (79 and 95 respectively). The onset of various social profiles like visual fixation, social smile, sound seizures, oral expression and hand-grasping are significantly delayed among the new-born inbred babies." (Indian National Science Academy, 1983Consanguinity Effects on Intelligence Quotient and Neonatal Behavio...).

The article "Effects of inbreeding on Raven Matrices" concludes that "Indian Muslim school boys, ages 13 to 15 years, whose parents are first cousins, were compared with classmates whose parents are genetically unrelated on the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices, a nonverbal test of intelligence. The inbred group scored significantly lower and had significantly greater variance than the non-inbred group, both on raw scores and on scores statistically adjusted to control for age and socioeconomic status." (Behaviour Genetics, 1984).

Another study shows that the risk of having an IQ lower than 70 goes up 400 percent from 1.2 percent in children from normal parents to 6.2 percent in inbred children: "The data indicate that the risk for mental retardation in matings of normal parents increases from 0.012 with random matings to 0.062 for first-cousin parentage." (Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, 1978Effect of inbreeding on IQ and mental retardation"). The study A study of possible deleterious effects of consanguinity concludes, that "The occurrence of malignancies, congenital abnormalities, mental retardation and physical handicap was significantly higher in offspring of consanguineous than non-consanguineous marriages."


Mental and physical diseases and death

The risk of stillbirth doubles when parents are first cousins (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 More stillbirths among immigrants). One study analyzed the risk of perinatal death (the child dies during its own birth), infant death (child dies while still infant) and autosomal recessive disorders (serious and often deadly genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy):

Perinatal mortality in the Pakistani children was 1.5 times higher than that in the Norwegian children, and infant mortality in the Pakistani children was more than double that in the Norwegian children. Deaths due to autosomal recessive disorders were 18 times more common in the Pakistani children. Similarly, deaths due to multiple malformations, which may be part of unrecognized autosomal recessive syndromes, were 10 times more common.

(BMJ, 1994 Infant death and consanguineous marriage.

There are also evidence suggesting that inbred people has a higher risk of developing mental disorders: "The clinical observations indicated that depression is very high in some communities where the consanguinity of marriages is also high." (Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 2009 "Relationship between consanguinity and depression in a south Indian...".

Another study focused on the relationship between intermarriage and schizophrenia: "The closer the blood relative, the more likely was there to be a schizophrenic illness." (American Psychiatric Press, 1982 The role of genetic factors  in the ethiology of the schizophrenic
disorders
.

The increased risk of insanity among children of marriages between cousins might explain why immigrant patients are stressing the psychiatric system and are strongly overrepresented among insane criminals: "In Sct. Hans Hospital, which has the biggest ward for clinically insane criminals in Denmark, more than 40 percent of the patients have an immigrant background." (Kristeligt Dagblad, 26/6 2007 Ethnic minorities overrepresented among the criminal insane).


Implications for the Western and the Muslim World

The consequences for offspring of consanguineous marriages are unpleasantly clear: Death, low intelligence or even mental retardation, handicaps and diseases often leading to a slow and painful death. Other consequences are:

Limited social skills and understanding, limited ability to manage education and work procedures and painful treatment procedures. The negative cognitive consequences also influence the executive functions. The impairment of concentration and emotional control most often leads to anti-social behavior.

The economic costs and consequences for society of inbreeding are of course secondary to the reality of human suffering.

However, inbreeding among Muslims has severe implications for both the Western societies and the Muslim world.

Expenses related to mentally and physically handicapped Muslim immigrants drains the budget for other public services: "When cousins have children together, they are twice as likely to have a disabled child - it costs municipal funds dearly. Disabled immigrant children costs Danish municipalities millions. In Copenhagen County alone, the number of disabled children in the overall increase of 100 percent at 10 years. ... Meredith Lefelt has contacted 330 families with disabled children in Copenhagen. She estimates that one third of their clients have a foreign cultural background." (BT, 10/11 2003 Immigrants inbreeding costing one million.

On top come the expenses for Muslim immigrants who - because of different consequences of being born from blood related parents - are not able to live up to the challenges of our Western work market: Muslim immigrants and their descendants in Europe have a very high rate of unemployment.

The same goes for Muslims in USA, where the Gallup Institute made a study involving 300.000 people concluding “The majority of Muslims in USA have a lower income, are less educated and have worse jobs than the population as a whole.” (Berlingske Tidende, d. 3. marts 2009: Muslims thrive in USA.

The cognitive consequences of Muslim inbreeding might explain why non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the Danish army's intelligence test than native Danes: "19.3% of non-Western immigrants are not able to pass the Danish army's intelligence test. In comparison, only 4.7% of applicants with Danish background do not pass." (TV 2 Nyhederne, 13/6 2007 Immigrants flunk army test.

It probably also explains - at least partly - why two thirds of all immigrant school children with Arabic backgrounds are illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system: "Those who speak Arabic with their parents have an extreme tendency to lack reading abilities - 64 percent are illiterate. ... No matter if it concerns reading abilities, mathematics or science, the pattern is the same: The bilingual (largely Muslim) immigrants' skills are exceedingly poor compared to their Danish classmates." (Rockwool Foundation Research Unit, May 2007: Ethnic students does not make Danish children worse.

The high expenses on special education for slow learners consumes one third of the budget for the Danish schools. “Immigrant children are clearly overrepresented on Copenhagen’s schools for retarded children and children with physical handicaps. … 51 percent of the children on the three schools in Copenhagen for children with physical and mental handicaps har immigrant back ground and on one of the schools the amount is 70 percent. … These amounts are significantly higher than the share of immigrant children in the municipality, which is 33 percent. The many handicapped children are a clear evidence that there are many intermarried parents in the immigrant families.” (Jydske Vestkysten, 4/4 2009 Tosprogede i overtal på handicapskoler).

Our high level of education may also make it harder for inbred students to follow and finish their studies: "Young people with minority backgrounds have a significantly higher dropout rate at secondary schools than youth with a Danish background. For trade school education, the dropout rate among immigrants is 60 percent, twice as high among adolescents with a Danish background....

There is great variation in educational outcomes when compared with national origin. For example, dropout among young people with Lebanese or Iranian background is far greater than among people of Vietnamese background." (Center for Knowledge on Integration in Randers, May 2005 “Youth, education and integration“). ”Among immigrant children that are born and raised in Denmark, more than a third has no education. Among native Danes it is less than one fifth that do not get an education. (Statistics Denmark: “Indvandrere i 2007”.

The negative consequences of inbreeding are also vast for the Muslim world. Inbreeding may thus explain why only nine Muslims ever managed to receive the prestigious Nobel Prize (5 of them won the "Peace Prize" - for peace that turned out not to last for very long).

The limited ability to understand, appreciate and produce knowledge following a limited IQ is probably also partly the reason why Muslim countries produce 1/10 of the World average when it comes to scientific research: "In 2003, the world average for production of articles per million inhabitants was 137, whereas none of the 47 OIC countries for which there were data achieved production above 107 per million inhabitants. The OIC average was just 13." (Nature 444, p. 26-27, 1. November 2006 ”Islam and science: The data gap”.

The lack of interest in science and human development in the Muslim World is also clear in the UN Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR). AHDR concludes that there have been fewer books translated into Arabic in the last thousand years than the amount of books translated within the country of Spain every year:

"The Arab world translates about 330 books annually, one fifth of the number that Greece translates. The cumulative total of translated books since the Caliph Maa'moun's [sic] ti

me (the ninth century) is about 100,000, almost the average that Spain translates in one year." (Eugene Rogan ”Arab Books and human development”. Index of Censorship, vol. 33, issue 2 April 2004, p. 152-157). "70 percent of the Turkish citizens never read books."(APA, 23 February 2009 “).


Conclusion

There is no doubt that the wide spread tradition of first cousin marriages among Muslims has harmed the gene pool among Muslims. Because Muslims’ religious beliefs prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevents them from adding fresh genetic material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago are most likely massive. The overwhelming direct and indirect human and societal consequences have been explained above.

Compassion for the health of future generations should be enough to ban intermarriage among first cousins. The economic and societal consequences do also count. Such a ban would also lessen Muslim immigration to the West because many Muslim families would like to be able to continue their practice of intermarriage in order to live up to cultural and religious traditions and keep wealth and power inside their family.

A legislative ban on first cousin marriages is a logical and compassionate imperative for both the Muslim world, for EU and our Western national governments.

Aisha Khan, whose parents are first cousins, has lost siblings to genetic problems

The day her four-year-old brother died is firmly rooted in Aisha Khan’s memory. Aisha was only eight when she woke up to find her home in West Yorkshire filled with people; a kindly uncle scooping her out of bed with her three older siblings while her distraught parents mourned. For months she expected Sarfraz, her tiny brother, to return but she never saw him again.

For Aisha, now 36, the loss was just one of many disasters to befall her family. Her twin brother Ahmed died aged just two-and- a-half. Her elder sister Tahira has serious learning difficulties, and another brother, Kasim, born just two years after Sarfraz’s death, had problems so severe that he required 24-hour care and did not live to see his 18th birthday.

The family’s sadness is unimaginable. Yet the real tragedy is not only that their experience is far from rare, but that it could have been avoided.

Aisha’s Pakistani-born parents, Mohammed and Barkat, are first cousins. There is fresh and growing evidence that marriage between relatives within the Pakistani community may be to blame – in part at least – for a dramatic rise in the number of children with genetic disorders being treated in British hospitals.

Figures obtained by The Mail on Sunday under Freedom of Information laws reveal a huge challenge, not only for such communities, but also for the Health Service. And it comes with vast financial implications.

The figures show that up to 20 per cent of the children treated for congenital problems in cities such as Sheffield, Glasgow and Birmingham are of Pakistani descent, a figure significantly greater than the background populations, which can be four per cent or lower.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital alone has seen the number of Pakistani children treated for genetic disorders increase by as much as 43 per cent since 2011.

Officials admit it is impossible to calculate the cost of treating these problems, but there is no doubting the extraordinary scale of the expense, which even in 2004 was estimated at £2billion a year.

Today that figure will be substantially greater still, as hospitals diagnose an ever broader range of conditions and new treatments become available.

Scientific studies over at least three decades have linked first-cousin unions to an increased risk of genetic disease.

Yet it remains discussed only with extreme reluctance. Medical professionals fear being labelled racist, while individuals among the groups most affected are reluctant to be seen as disloyal.

Aisha herself is prepared to be criticised by her own community, and is unequivocal in her belief that not only must it accept the latest figures as proof of a growing problem but that action is needed to address it – even if that means taking genetic tests before marriage and in the early stages of pregnancy to prevent further heartbreak.

‘This is a matter of life and death,’ she says. ‘In a climate of casual racism, terror attacks and Brexit, it’s hard to discuss but the Pakistani community must accept these findings. Yes, these conditions can happen to white British people, too, but Pakistanis are more likely to be affected because of generations of inbreeding. Testing means these problems would be less likely to happen.’

Two per cent of the population in the UK is Pakistani or British Pakistani, according to the 2011 Census – just under one million people. Estimates suggest half the marriages are ‘consanguineous’ – between blood relatives – a largely cultural tradition aimed at keeping wealth and property within families. Such marriages are also common in Arab countries and North Africa. This means a disproportionate number of children from these backgrounds are stillborn, die during childhood, or live with lifelong genetic disabilities.

Hundreds of such conditions, many of them so rare they have never before been seen in Britain, are now being diagnosed at children’s hospitals. Typically, the effects include neurological problems, heart or kidney failure, lung and liver failings, blindness, deafness and learning problems.

Perhaps it is an indication of a reluctance to address the issue that there are no collected statistics on the number of disorders linked to consanguineous marriage. We obtained our figures through FoI requests, asking children’s hospitals to break down the number of patients they have seen with genetic disorders by ethnicity.

Officials say it is impossible to calculate the cost of treating these problems, but there is no doubting the scale of the expense, which in 2004 was estimated at £2billion a year +6

The trend is clear. They show that in Sheffield, for example, 20 per cent of affected children are of Pakistani descent compared with a background population of four per cent. In Glasgow, the proportion is about 18 per cent, even though Pakistanis account for 3.8 per cent of the local population.

In Manchester, Derby and Leeds, about one in ten children with a genetic disorder is of Pakistani heritage – again significantly above the background population. Then there is that extraordinary increase in Pakistani children with genetic disorders in Birmingham – a 42 per cent rise in six years, which cannot be attributed solely to new and better diagnosis of such conditions given that the number of children from a white British background increased by 18 per cent in the same period. Clinicians in the city estimate three-quarters of the Pakistani cases are a result of a first-cousin marriage.

Dramatic as this picture is, the true overall figures could be higher still, as our data does not include statistics from London’s Great Ormond Street, which deals with some of the most complex cases.

The number of children treated there for genetic disorders has jumped by a third in five years. The hospital does not routinely record patient ethnicity but a clinician, who declined to be named, confirmed a significant number of the cases involve first-cousin marriages.

One of the fundamental stumbling blocks is, controversially, the way that many of those affected interpret their faith.

Aisha grew up in Keighley, where up to 20 per cent of the population is Pakistani and Muslim. Many come from the same few villages in Mirpur, a region now known as ‘Little England’. Aisha broke with tradition by refusing to marry a cousin, so great were her concerns about the risk.

‘My dad would not accept that being married to his cousin could have affected his children,’ she said. ‘He’d say, “The doctors are wrong. It’s in the hands of God.”

‘In his mind, it was all about the will of Allah – nothing to do with genetics, which made me hugely frustrated. He’d say if genetics was the reason, how come some of his children were healthy?

‘Many people I know would say that not marrying a cousin is against our religion. There is a powerful pressure to do so, or risk bringing shame on the family. But it’s a misconception – it isn’t mentioned in the Koran.

‘The community struggles to accept cousin marriages are resulting in difficulties because they think it [marrying outside the family] goes against their faith. I’ve been accused of being Islamophobic or creating problems in the community by raising the issue.’

A study carried out among Pakistani families in Luton in 2015 found that Aisha’s father is not alone in his views. The infant mortality rate is a staggering 63 per cent higher in the town than the national average, and is at its highest in the Pakistani community.

But a majority of those questioned had a limited understanding of genetic risk – even those in contact with specialists because of an affected child – and ‘disputed the evidence of the link’ between first-cousin marriages and birth defects.

It is telling that the Muslim Women’s Network has received no calls to its helpline on the issue.

Callers do, however, ring regularly about subjects including forced marriage and female genital mutilation.

So great is the fear of being branded racists, most of the hospitals and local authorities approached to talk about the issue refused to do so. But orthopaedic surgeon Dr Suhail Chughtai, himself a Pakistani, said he had witnessed ‘terrible problems’ among his own family and friends.

‘There is a problem of segregation among Pakistanis who have moved to the UK, of not looking beyond their community.

‘The country they came from has moved on, but they haven’t benefited from that cultural revolution. And they haven’t benefited from their new country because they’re stuck within their own people.’

This denial exacts a destructive human cost, which is as inevitable as the laws of genetics.

While everyone carries the occasional copy of a faulty gene, the damage to any offspring is caused only when faulty genes come together as a pair. And because those who are related to each other are more likely to carry the same faults in their DNA, their children are at a much greater risk of inheriting not just one copy of a faulty gene, but two – one from each parent.

I've been accused of Islamophobia but we must talk about it
It means that, for each first-cousin pregnancy, there is a one-in-four chance of having a child with defects.

A groundbreaking study, Born In Bradford, successfully raised the issue in 2013. It found cousins who married were twice as likely to have a disabled child compared to those in non-cousin marriages. Such unions also accounted for nearly a third of all birth defects in babies of Pakistani origin.

Geneticist Professor Steve Jones, from University College London, said: ‘If you walk up to someone in the street with European ancestry and shake their hand, there’s a one in two chance that person is your fifth cousin. In other words, you share an ancestor who lived around the same time as Charles Darwin.

‘If you’re Pakistani and you do this in Pakistan, there’s a one in two chance they’re a second cousin. There have been cousin marriages in Pakistan for a long, long time. Within one generation there are fewer issues; following many generations there are a lot.’

However, he added: ‘It’s important to put it into context – the risk is equivalent to women over the age of 34 getting pregnant.’

Ann Cryer, Labour MP for Keighley until standing down in 2010, is among those who have campaigned for greater awareness. She has described the cases she saw as ‘constant and heartbreaking’.

‘One middle-class family had six children with two healthy girls, and four disabled boys between toddler age and 11 who needed hoists to move,’ she said. ‘And yet the mother-in-law had thrown away their contraceptive pills and was pressuring them to have more children so they could have a “perfect” son. One doctor was dismissed by another woman’s mother-in-law, who told him, “The reason she’s having these children with difficulties is because life in the West is not appropriate – it’s the will of Allah, and you’re a bad doctor.”

‘No one dared talk about it. If you’re white, it’s seen as racist; if you’re Pakistani, you’re disloyal. If you’re going to marry your first cousin, get tested or screened for genetic compatibility first.’

There are signs of progress. Important work is being carried out by Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, for example. Dr Saikat Santra, a consultant in metabolic disorders at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, describes how local imams are playing a part, advising families that, in some interpretations of the Koran, the soul only enters the foetus at 100 days, which means that they are allowed to seek early pre-natal testing and, potentially, abortion.

Dr Santra said families are now more willing to seek advice on genetics. However, even testing before marriage is not by itself sufficient, according to Jenny Morton, a consultant clinical geneticist based at Birmingham Women’s Hospital, who said that only certain major problems can be detected this way. Other measures might be necessary too, including early pregnancy screening.

‘A misconception is that these families don’t want to hear about genetics,’ said Dr Morton. ‘What they don’t want to hear is that they’re doing things wrong – that’s when they withdraw. We have had a high non-attendance rate at our clinics among Pakistani families because they didn’t understand why they were being sent for and thought we were going to tell them what to do.’

There was pressure on one family to have a perfect son
It could be, also, that a change to British immigration laws is helping reduce the number of problems produced between cousins.

Professor Neil Small, one of the Born In Bradford researchers, said: ‘We’ve changed the law to introduce an income threshold for spouses coming in from outside the EU, and the experience of other countries such as Denmark and Norway would suggest that could produce a fall in intercontinental marriage generally. The anecdotal evidence suggests it may already be true.

‘Cousins have historically been brought in from places like Pakistan to marry. But this is now more difficult to do.’

Aisha, too, believes society may be on the cusp of change. ‘Five or ten years ago, no one would have questioned cousin marriage. But my brother and sister-in-law, who are cousins, thought long and hard about having a fourth child because they knew the risk.

‘This is progress. More have to talk about it. That’s key. I’ve had three siblings die. If my parents had known, maybe we could have avoided that.’

At a meeting of Redbridge Council’s health and wellbeing board at the Kenneth More Theatre yesterday, councillors and healthcare specialists discussed the continued problem of young children from consanguineous marriages dying.
The practice of consanguineous marriage is most common among Pakistani communities, and the same is true in Redbridge.
Of the recorded child deaths between 2008 and 2016, 9pc were of Pakistani ethnicity and died as a result of genetic complications arising from having related parents.
But Vicky Hobart, Redbridge’s director of public health, argued that the small number of child deaths meant large percentages should not be misunderstood.

She said: “Consanguinity is very common in many cultures and the worry with something like this is that we are dealing with very small numbers. It is important to note trends but we should not read too much into it.”

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom of Movement
The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration)
4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
