This exhaustive expose is a report of Team B II at The Center for Security Policy. In the spirit of due diligence, I would tell readers that most often I am not on the same foreign policy page as is the publisher and associate author of Shariah the Threat to America. Frank Gaffney Jr., a highly visible leader in the neoconservative fraternity, was also a signatory to The Project for a New Century’s statement of principles. PNAC’s goal was to promote American hegemony and full spectrum dominance by the United States. PNAC played a significant role in prodding the administration of George W. Bush into the failed Iraq war effort, the negative effects of which carry on to this day. With such disclosure in mind, I do share Gaffney and Team B II’s concern regarding the threat to America posed generally by shariah and more specifically by The Muslim Brotherhood.
Shariah-Compliant Finance (SCF) is a wake-up call for Americans. SCF may be a term new to you.
One of the two-team leaders for this report of “Team B II” is Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin, U.S. Army (Ret.). Jerry served primarily in Delta Force and Special Forces assignments during his 36-year career, which culminated with appointment as Deputy Undersecretary for Defense in the Pentagon. The following is from his book Shariah, the Threat to America.
Sariah-Compliant Finance is a category of financial transactions that is conducted or structured in such a way as to be considered by Islamist authorities to be “legal, authorized or pure” (halal) pursuant to shariah.
The shariah-compliant finance industry provides multiple benefits to the stealth jihadists. For starters, it has created a new instrument for forcing non-shariah-adherent Muslims to conform to their program.
For some time now, despite the aforementioned, serious problems, Wall Street has been marketing SCF as little more than a kind of “hot” new product for American pension funds, insurance companies and corporations. Investment banks and other financial institutions have been hiring Muslim religious authorities to sit on corporate advisory boards that directly influence the investment of billions of U.S. dollars.
By so doing Wall Street has welcomed Islamic Law into the American financial sector.( such firms as Goldman Sachs,Citicorp and AIG)
What is even worse, the U.S Department of the Treasury also has been officially promoting SCF throughout the U.S. banking and financial system. For example in 2008,Treasury featured a training class for U.S. government employees in association with the Islamic Finance Project at Harvard Law School.
See any problems for our constitutional Federal Republic here?
Does your member of the House in Washington know about and approve SCF? How about your Senators and for that matter your Governor. In the coming presidential campaign, shouldn’t presidential candidates be grilled hard on their views of SCF?
