Sebastian Gorka: Sahriah finance is a zero-sum game
Dr. Sebastian Gorka is military affairs fellow with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington, D. C., and associate fellow with the Joint Special Operations University. He has written an excellent article on Shariah-Compliant Finance which we think everyone should read…
Dr. Gorka correctly identifies Shariah-Compliant Finance as a form of economic warfare being waged by Jihadists against the West in general, and America in particular.
This passage is especially powerful:
What are the ultimate motives of those who are using religion to shape Western financial structures from the inside? In the case of shariah finance, the justification is not simply religious but ideological. The vast majority of bankers and financial analysts have no idea that this strategically designed movement is based upon a lie. The lie is that Islam forbids the charging of interest. In truth, as anyone versed in the Muslim faith is aware, Islam has something to say about riba, or usury, but it does not outright ban interest.
