Los Rothschild eran de origen Aschenaz. Recordemos que un siglo después de la muerte de cristo, los judíos abandonan Judea—más o menos la actual Palestina, la tierra prometida; después que repetidamente son apagados sus intentos por liberarse de los romanos, que culminan con la destrucción y prohibición, con pena de muerte para los judíos, de visitar Jerusalén—es decir, continuo la diáspora.
Interesantemente, un grupo emigró hacia Irak (Babilonia) e Irán (Persia) y les fue bastante bien… Los judíos que se radicaron en Europa del este se conocen como Aschenaz; que constituyen el 80% de todos los judíos. Algunos llegan al oeste como esclavos romanos—los Sefarditas. Pero los demás, por muchos años, permanecerían fuera de esta zona; ni los romanos, ni los Francos, los dejarían trabajar en sus imperios.
Perseguidos, aparentemente desarrollaron su inteligencia o sus habilidades para sobrevivir—en este caso aplica: camarón que se duerme, se lo lleva la corriente… la han pasado muy duro.
Encontré el siguiente artículo del Economist, ¿Genio Natural? muy interesante. Este es el meollo,
West Africans, and people of West African descent, are susceptible to a disease called sickle-cell anaemia that is virtually unknown elsewhere. The anaemia develops in those whose red blood cells contain a particular type of haemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen. But the disease occurs only in those who have two copies of the gene for the disease-causing haemoglobin (one copy from each parent). Those who have only one copy have no symptoms. They are, however, protected against malaria, one of the biggest killers in that part of the world. Thus, the theory goes, the pressure to keep the sickle-cell gene in the population because of its malaria-protective effects balances the pressure to drive it out because of its anaemia-causing effects. It therefore persists without becoming ubiquitous.En fin, que es innegable que los judíos son gente muy inteligente. Yo no sé si llevan la cuenta, pero hasta aquí, los culpables del embrollo son los romanos; es decir los italianos… (saludos Diego…)
Dr Cochran argues that something similar happened to the Ashkenazim. Genes that promote intelligence in an individual when present as a single copy create disease when present as a double copy. His thesis is not as strong as the sickle-cell/malaria theory, because he has not proved that any of his disease genes do actually affect intelligence. But the area of operation of some of them suggests that they might
The sphingolipid-storage diseases, Tay-Sachs, Gaucher's and Niemann-Pick, all involve extra growth and branching of the protuberances that connect nerve cells together. Too much of this (as caused in those with double copies) is clearly pathological. But it may be that those with single copies experience a more limited, but still enhanced, protuberance growth. That would yield better linkage between brain cells, and might thus lead to increased intelligence. Indeed, in the case of Gaucher's disease, the only one of the three in which people routinely live to adulthood, there is evidence that those with full symptoms are more intelligent than the average. An Israeli clinic devoted to treating people with Gaucher's has vastly more engineers, scientists, accountants and lawyers on its books than would be expected by chance
Why a failure of the DNA-repair system should boost intelligence is unclear—and is, perhaps, the weakest part of the thesis, although evidence is emerging that one of the genes in question is involved in regulating the early growth of the brain. But the thesis also has a strong point: it makes a clear and testable prediction. This is that people with a single copy of the gene for Tay-Sachs, or that for Gaucher's, or that for Niemann-Pick should be more intelligent than average. Dr Cochran and his colleagues predict they will be so by about five IQ points. If that turns out to be the case, it will strengthen the idea that, albeit unwillingly, Ashkenazi Jews have been part of an accidental experiment in eugenics. It has brought them some advantages. But, like the deliberate eugenics experiments of the 20th century, it has also exacted a terrible price.
