Social scientists are looking for the causes of violence in the Middle East and North Africa so they can reduce the death toll from terrorism. One theory blames demographics. It contends that single low-income men are prone to joining terrorist groups because they have trouble bedding women and starting families. Experts who promote this theory argue that young men in this situation could easily become killers. When interpreting such statistics, one must keep in mind that a general tendency does not justify stereotyping an entire group. Plenty of individuals do not follow the trend.

Young Arab men are suffering from the often inaccurate perception spread by researchers. Aid workers in Middle Eastern refugee camps often neglect single men, because professionals wrongly assume that they can take care of themselves. Half of these men were not even registered with the UN High Commission for Refugees, a precondition for receiving help. Although aid workers ignore them, police officers devote excessive time targeting them. Consequently, young men are over-represented among the refugees fleeing to Europe. Rather than recognizing the sexism they face, Europeans panicked about them living in their countries and Canadians excluded them from a refugee resettlement program.

The excess of young men entering Europe need not make the natives restless. China also has an unbalanced sex ratio, and there is little violent revolution there. An economics professor at Zhejing University, Xie Zuoshi, suggested polyandry as a solution for the unmatched bachelors of China. He noted that monogamy does not harm high-income men, who can find wives despite the competition, but it leaves low-income men without offspring to support them in their old age. Although there is a history of polyandry among Chinese peasants, the upper class frowned upon this practice.

An aversion to polyandry is understandable from an evolutionary perspective, because paternity, unlike maternity, is not obvious at birth. Few people are willing to raise someone else’s offspring. However, this generation can benefit from a technological hack to the marriage quandary. DNA fingerprinting can identify which husband was responsible for a given pregnancy. Modern paternity testing relies on electrophoresis to identify a father with 99.99% accuracy. With this tool, polyandrous unions can function as well as polygynous marriages do.

Thanks to American innovation, polyandrous spouses might be able to buy homes to match their lifestyle. The Contemporary Farmhouse was designed with Millennials in mind, and a modified version of it would be ideal for polyandry. The core of the house has three to four bedrooms that the wife and progeny can live in. A downstairs bedroom suite has a full bath, a kitchenette, and an outside entrance, the perfect living quarters for a modern husband. A home with a similar bedroom suite for each husband would ensure peace within the home and promote peace throughout the world, two core Jewish values.

For the sake of peace, it is time for Western politicians to open their gates to Arab immigration and stop clinging to the traditional definition of marriage as the union of one man with one woman. The technology exists to stop terrorism in the Middle East and North Africa, only the political will is lacking. Zoning and building codes make it difficult to construct the Contemporary Farmhouse in most Western municipalities. Not a single Western nation recognizes polyandrous marriages. The West needs brave thinkers to challenge these barriers to peace so that Arabs and Europeans can live side by side in harmony.
