UnNews:Birth defects warnings deemed 'Islamophobic'
10 February 2008
DELIVERANCE, Westminster Saturday (UNN) -- A minister who warned about birth defects among children of first cousin marriages in Britain's Asian community has sparked anger among critics. Phil Woolas said health workers were aware such marriages were creating increased risk of genetic problems.
The claims infuriated the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) which called on the prime minister to sack Mr Woolas. "That he has noticed that British Pakistanis are 13 times more likely to have children with recessive disorders than the general population, and that this 3% of the population has 30% of all recessive gene defects in the UK, is clearly due only to Islamophobia," said spokesman Asghar Bukhari.
"I concur," said the parasitic twin head attached to his rump.
Mr Woolas said cultural sensitivities made the issue of birth defects difficult to address. "A lot of arranged marriages are with first cousins, to keep wealth within the family. Furthermore, the additional heads on one body mean less food is required for each individual head, and people with eight fingers on each hand are in great demand as banjo players.
"They also supply a much-needed resource in British humour: a native population group concerning whom 'inbred' jokes can be made. Although we have heard reports of children from these groups being made fun of for having one head and ten fingers."
