  1. ON  JEWISH  IQ

ASHKENAZI  JEWS: Unlike the “average” Jews in Israel whose IQ is given above as 94, Ashkenazi Jews are said to have an average IQ of 110-115, sometimes as high as 117. This is 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 simplest explanation for the huge IQ difference between the fair-skinned Ashkenazi Jews and the darker Jews of Semitic appearance is a so-called conspiracy theory known as the “Khazarian thesis”. Popularized by Arthur Koestler in The Thirteenth Tribe and accepted by some notable Jewish scholars (e.g. Professor 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.
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. (See THIS MAP). Of wholly Asiatic origin, they became “Jews” later only by religious conversion in the 8th century. This is controversial and disputed.  If true, it means that Ahhkenazi Jews have no ancestral links with the Holy Land. Abraham and Moses were therefore not their ancestors by bloodline. Any ownership claims to Palestine on Biblical grounds by Ashkenazi Jews—who comprise the bulk of Israel’s population today—would therefore be spurious claims.
The Khazarian thesis of Koestler has been rejected by other notable scholars who have argued convincingly that modern population genetic studies have proved conclusively that widely dispersed Jewish groups, who do not resemble each other in any way physically, are nevertheless extraordinarily similar genetically. Others however argue that “genetic similarities” between Ashkenazi Jews and other widely dispersed Jewish groups (with darker skins) do not necessarily disprove the Khazarian thesis of Koestler. This is because intermarriage between the fair-skinned Ashkenazis and the darker-skinned “Semitic” Jews was frequent in Khazaria from the 8th century onward, and indeed anywhere else in the world where the fair-skinned Khazarian “pseudo-Jews” mingled with and married the darker-skinned Semitic Jews.
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 sensationally, “like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.” — See The Thirteenth Tribe, Part 2, “The Heritage.
In regard to Jewish IQ, a learned correspondent comments:
“If we look at the Israeli national average for IQ, it is only 94. Prof. Lynn in Ireland is the ultimate authority on IQ differences. In a semi-private conversation at an AR conference (Feb. 2001), he said that the Jewish IQ outside of Israel is only 103-104 (i.e., this is the IQ of someone expected to graduate from higher education, only slightly above the average European IQ of 100). Prof. Lynn stated: “I don’t understand why there is this push to say 110-115, by my colleagues, when there is no scientific study that proves that.” 
It’s worth noting therefore that one of the world’s foremost IQ experts, Prof. Richard Lynn, questions the exceptionally high IQ figure of 110-115 that is commonly given to Ashkenazi Jews, putting it much lower at 103-104. If correct, this would make the Ashkenazi Jews slightly less intelligent than the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans with their average IQ of 105.
For my part, I am not in a position to comment convincingly on the Khazarian thesis of Koestler. To pronounce judgment on this question would require a specialist knowledge of genetics which I lack. Suffice to say that most fairer-skinned Ashkenazi Jews, whether they are Jews in the strict genetic sense or pseudo-Jews masquerading as Jews, are nevertheless of far higher intelligence than the average Euro-American. It is precisely because of their greater intelligence, or resourceful cunning in the acquisition of wealth and power, that Ashkenazi Jews have managed to do so well in the Darwinian struggle for existence — otherwise known as the Survival of the Fittest.
  1. ON INDIAN AND CHINESE IQs

It would appear that the sub-average IQ in India of 81, though applicable en masse to the population of the subcontinent as a whole, is not applicable to the closely inbred brahminical classes of Bengal and Tamil Nadu (and other such areas) which have been practicing their own highly idiosyncratic form of eugenics for centuries. These high-caste Indians are reported to have the world’s highest IQs in the 115-120 range. A well-informed correspondent offers this comment:
“Besides the Ashkenazi Jews with their high average IQ, another interesting group is Indian Brahmins, who have an ancient culture of learning and are strictly endogamic, which would tend to breed for intellect. There is an interesting article touching on this subject on Steve Sailer’s blog. Here the average IQ of North Indian Brahmins is estimated at 115 and that of South Indian Brahmins at 120. If that is true, they would surpass even the Ashkenazis.”
For more details, see Steve Sailer’s 2008 article: India’s Average IQ in 2100?
If the above details are correct, it would not be unreasonable to apply the same tentative logic to China, leading us to speculate that the IQ of the highly bred Chinese scholar classes or mandarinate—the equivalent of India’s brahminical caste—may be far higher than the average Chinese IQ of 105+
Another point worth noting, in regard to Indian IQ, is that it is hard to believe that the average IQ of Indian immigrants to Western countries is as low as 81. The average IQ of Indian immigrants certainly equals, and often exceeds, the average IQ of the local white indigenous population. Some of the most gifted children in British schools today have highly educated Indian parents. Moreover, even in India itself, the children of the educated classes who attend expensive boarding schools have higher-than-average IQs, often going on to Oxford and Cambridge for further education.
The highest mathematical genius who has ever lived is arguably an Indian who died tragically at the early age of 33 before he could realize his full potential. I refer to Srinivasa Ramanujan, whose powers were so extraordinary that even the most preeminent mathematicians in the West regarded Ramanujan’s mathematical wizardry as inexplicable, almost verging on the paranormal. (See Paul Davies, The Mind of God, pp. 153-54.)
  1. A  HANDY  REFERENCE  TOOL  TO  IQ  LEVELS

IQs of less than 20 : Idiots.
20-49 : Imbeciles.
50-69 : Morons (feeble-minded).
These are official statistics. According to an old British legal statute, an “idiot” is an individual with an IQ of less than 20, an “imbecile” has an IQ of between 20 and 49, and a “moron” an IQ between 50 and 69. (See here).
IQs of 70-80 : Subnormally intelligent or “retarded”. 
80-90 : Dull-witted or “slow”.
90-100 : Slightly below average.
100-110 : Slightly above average.
110-120 : Superior intelligence. (Fit for higher education).
120-140 : Highly intelligent. (Fit for 1st Class Honours). 
132 and above : within the top 2% of the population.
140-plus : Near-genius level.
150+ : Genius.
