Liberty is what we stand to lose if we do not conquer the influx of shariah finance, laws and money into our democracy. 1000 postings later, and are we safer yet?? this is a reminder, as Joni Mitchell said in one of her songs “You don’t know what you got till it’s gone”. Lets not make this lyric our reality. Stop Financial Sharia, stop selling out to those who hate liberty, freedom for gays, women, musicians, playwrights, press, media, and religion. We are in a global jihad, and the financial jihad is quiet. It takes place in boardrooms that are not privy to the public. It takes place with handshakes on golf courses and race tracks. It takes place with goverment officials who have their palms waxed with greed, and it takes place on Wall Steet. Terror Free Investments, due diligence, full disclosure, and transparency is needed to make sure that these super deals, are legit, and will not have a gross impact of the future of democracy. Please speak to your local and state reps to discuss this issue. If you need help, contact us through this blog, and we can advise you on what you can do to help this issue of major importance.There is really nothing to celebrate about 1000 postings, it is just a testament to the lack of interest the major players in the financial industry have and as Mike Douglas in “Wall Steet Stated “GREED IS GOOD”. This is a lie. Greed at the cost of security, liberty, and freedom is not good. Lets make sure that the next 1000th posting is not one of bombs destroying the stature of Liberty. Each one of you can make a difference. We can post, search the internet, try to educate, but ultimately, it is the lover of free society that will make sure that the liberties of freedom survive.
(MENAFN Press) The first comprehensive guide to Islamic finance has been produced by the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC), filling a long-felt need in one of the world’s fastest growing economic sectors.The 40-page Guide to Islamic Finance – in or from the DIFC’ is designed to help all who are interested in learning more about the subject.It provides a summary of the underlying concepts in Islamic finance, as well as examines the issues facing the Islamic financial services industry regionally and internationally.The guide places specific emphasis on ‘Tayyab’, an underlying principle of Islam which is emerging as a new concept in Islamic finance. Tayyab ensures that Islamic financial products are developed with a focus on holistic, equitable Islamic criteria of transparency, accountability and fairness so as to ensure credibility is maintained.The booklet also details the DFSA regulatory environment for Islamic finance and the requirements applying to Sharia’-compliant operations and the products they offer. The only financial jurisdiction in the world that has a modern-day world-class regulatory structure for Islamic financeNasser Alshaali, CEO of DIFC Authority described the new guide as: “an invaluable source of information for everyone involved in Islamic finance or those who simply want to understand the subject better.”
Until now, he said, such a comprehensive guide had not been available in one single volume, although the Islamic sector is estimated to be worth $400 billion worldwide.
“DIFC plays a leading role in providing an infrastructure and environment that is helping the Islamic financial sector develop,” he explained and highlighted four core strengths:
� provision of a Sharia’ systems model which not only clearly defines the role of the Regulator, the institution and the scholars; but is based on a unique model which combines the recognised international standards and practices with modifications to reflect the specifics of Islamic finance;
� providing clarity and certainty of regulations across wholly Islamic financial Institutions, and also Islamic windows;
� providing a responsive and integrated regulatory structure conducive to the cross-sectoral nature of Islamic finance; and
� ensuring that all institutions operating within the DIFC and other financial centres are subject to the same standards of regulation.
“Commissioning and publishing this guide marks another important step in our mission to foster the growth and understanding of Islamic finance regionally and internationally.”
