Is there a Sharia threat to America?
Bad Guys Play Together
Glenn recapped his theory of how this will play out…
· They begin to destabilize Europe and the rest of the world.
The Wall Street Journal this week reported that Islamists, communists, radical leftists and socialists are working together in the Middle East. Glenn adds that it is also happening in America.
- Muslims are obligated to wage Jihad.
- There are two kinds of Jihad.
1. Violent – Self-explanatory.
2. Steal or ‘civilization’ – An inner struggle.
Jihad with Money
· Glenn showed the video clip of Yusuf Al Qaradawi.
· He is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and he is
· The ninth most powerful Muslim in the world.
· This is the video where he discusses killing all the Jews.
· He also said, in 2006, about charity to the BBC…
“I don’t like this word ‘donations’. I like to call it jihad with money because God has ordered us to fight enemies with our lives and our money.”
· Jihad is being waged against America in a number of different venues as Muslims join the judicial system, the banking system, the educational system, etc.
Sharia Compliant Banking
· Must insure that all financial transactions comply with all aspects of Islamic law. For instance,
o Purchases must not be made of pork products
o Or, alcohol products.
o Interest must not be made on loans.
· Sharia requires Muslims to tithe a percentage of their income to charity.
o So Sharia compliant banks and mutual funds must tithe a percentage to charity.
o Which charities?
o Those charities are determined by a Sharia Banking Advisor.
o Some banks have Yusuf Al Qaradawi as their advisor.
o The U.S. Treasury Dept shut one of the banks he advised down.
· Islamic banking has entered the Western banking system via…
o Deuche Bank
o That is not necessarily a bad thing until you get down to the Sharia Compliance Advisors to those banks.
· AIG is the world’s largest Sharia compliant insurance company.
o We, the American taxpayer, own it.
o The government took it over in 2008.
· Chris Holton, VP at the Center for Security Policy, His company published “Sharia The Threat to America” (See here à http://www.amazon.com/Shariah-America-Exercise-Competitive-Analysis/dp/098229476X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1301705773&sr=8-1 )
· Daniel Pipes, founder of the Middle Eastern Forum. Authored, “Muslim Islam Reaches America” (See here à http://www.amazon.com/Militant-Islam-Reaches-America-Daniel/dp/0393325318/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1301705893&sr=1-1 )
· Chris – Iran dominates Sharia compliant banking worldwide.
- The purpose of Sharia compliance is to promote Sharia.
- We should not have Sharia in America.
- It is the greatest threat to our Constitution.
Glenn – It’s one thing if someone beats us in fair competition and we lose because we are lazy and screw up. It’s a different thing if someone overthrows us.
· Chris – Regarding Compliance Advisors, there aren’t that many Sharia scholars.
o There are only about 200 that can sit on compliance boards.
o The two names you have on the board are the superstars.
o They both sit on multiple boards.
o Those boards control billions of dollars.
o They make about $50,000 per board.
A discussion of Yusuf Al Qaradawi ensues.
· Daniel –Yusuf is prevented from entering the U.S. because of a book he wrote.
o Yusuf is prevented from entering the U.S. because of a book he wrote.
o He serves on the Board of Directors of the U.S. based Islamic American University from overseas.
o He and the Muslim Brotherhood are seen as “moderate” because they are not actively plotting and carrying out attacks against the U.S.
A discussion about a Muslim hedge fund, Sharia Capital, Inc. ensues.
· Chris – The advisor to that fund was educated at a madrassa in Pakistan that has graduated a number of jihadis.
· Sharia compliant banking is a Trojan Horse used to get Sharia introduced into a country, e.g., England.
Glenn – The pentagon studied the large exodus of capital in 2008 that triggered the financial crisis. They think it might have been a test run, but they don’t know by whom.
Chris – The largest Sharia compliant funds in the world are controlled by Iran. They have twice as much as Saudi Arabia.
Daniel – People have missed the advance of Sharia in the legal, educational, etc., in the U.S. and the Western world.
- CAIR is an offshoot of HAMAS.
- It is non-violent.
- It seeks to install Sharia here in the Untied States.
- It is accepted by U.S. media and foundations, but not so much by the government.
- The deepest threat to America is polygamy.
- He thinks polygamy is coming.
- In Britain, their legal system already recognizes polygamy from other countries where it is legal.
- Their welfare system recognizes this as well with a different allocation for wife #2, #3, etc.
A discussion ensues of the Iranian rulers and their strong belief in the 12th Imam (Madhi) and his return. This belief is strong and drives their policies.
Chris – Sharia compliant banking was a concept invented in the 1930s as a way to insulate Muslim countries from the West.
- Now they are using it to infiltrate the West.
