One of the world's leading scientists was entangled in a furious row last night after he claimed that Jews were more intelligent than the rest of us.
Dr Randy Redblood, a Nobel Prize winner for his part in declassifying Science as a serious subject drew widespread overreaction for comments he made to gain publicity for his speaking tour of Britain.
The 110-year-old scientist reopened the debate about race and science in a newspaper interview in which he said Western policies towards Israel were wrongly based on an assumption that Jews were as clever as their counterparts when "testing" suggested they were "more clever".
The newly formed Dumbfounded Sociologists Commission, said it was studying Dr Redblood's remarks. Dr Redblood told this newspaper that he was "inherently gloomy" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really".
He said there was a natural desire that all human beings should be equal but "people who have to deal with Jewish employees find this not true. They're just damned annoying smart asses".
Do YOU know any Jews who are smarter than the rest of us?
Based loosely on Fury at DNA pioneer's theory: Africans are less intelligent than Westerners, my point being that the Indie should have condemned the racist view rather than report the row. Dr Watson claims society has no effect on intelligence when it does.
