Expert: Saudi Arabian Bankers Fueling Global Islamic Jihad

(IsraelNN.com) Rachel Ehrenfeld, Director of the American Center for Democracy, said at the Jerusalem Conference Tuesday that Saudi Arabian bankers are the main financiers of global terrorism.

Corrupt “Sharia financing” banking practices - legal under Islamic law - are a fairly new phenomenon, Ehrenfeld said. They were first developed by the Muslim brotherhood in the 70s, following the financial power gained by Saudis during the oil boom.

”Saudis are using money in order to corrupt the West, to fund terrorism, and eventually to take over the West,” said Ehrenfeld. “For years, Saudi Arabia has been a main supporter of terrorism, both physically and financially, and their illegal activity is now causing many innocent investors to commit serious crimes without even the knowledge that they are doing so.”

According to Ehrenfeld, Saudi Arabian bankers have roughly $1 trillion ready to be invested through means of what she terms “financial Jihad.” The financial practices she refers to as “Sharia financing” are run according to Islamic law, governed solely by the Koran and with no distinction between public and private practices. “Legitimate financing

How's that working out for the Saudis?

They are sadistic animals... just to see the infidel suffer... and that’s good enough, even if it costs them.

Doesn’t take an expert to figure that out.

Without getting long winded but I would pay whatever it came to be for gas just to stop sending our money to the Arabs for oil.

Pretty well.

So the US and Saudis have each other by the balls: we got their money and they got our oil. Sounds simple enough. Who's going to let go first? We could punch them in the face with our free hand; seems like they're already doing that to us, anyway. But, we can't hurt them too much 'cause we want their oil, and they can't hurt use too much 'cause they want our money.

Got any ideas?

I have an idea. Annex them. Oh sure it sounds crazy, expensive and bloody...NOW. In a few years though, when oil is at oh, say $150 per barrel, we've had more terrorist attacks either here or abroad, or both, and Muslims are closer to taking over Europe and making inroads in N. America, that idea might not seem so nuts. The more trouble they cause, the more of our debt they own, the easier it will be to consider just taking over the damn place and killing or imprisoning every last bastard that gets in the way.

Eventually, that idea will be cheaper than being their hostage.

"we got their money and they got our oil.

They have our money and they still have oil. Everyone has money and everyone wants oil. The US is less relevant in this scenario, except we have the aircraft carriers...

I guess with our free hand we pick up a hammer and beat them as bad as it takes until they let go.

Like my coach used to say, "I can't make you do what I say, but I can make you wish you did."

We are in the unique position to do both. If we have the will.

Actually we just have to make them think we will do it.

The only one who comes to mind who would possibly do that, and I'm not a supporter, is crazy John.

The answer is easy: stop using petroleum products. The HOW TO DO THAT is what’s hard.

1. Go nuclear power nationwide - NO HOLDOUTS!
2. Solar power - use it in regions where it will work.
3. Geothermal - where it is available.
4. Biofuels - only where we have to.
5. Natural gas - sparingly.

It can be done. Only environmentalists and the big oil companies are in the way.

It would take more than one crazy President, although that would be a good start. It would take a furious US, united and p.o'd like we haven't been since WWII. Liberals buy gas and groceries just like we do, and most people are not as brainwashed as the liberal polital junkies we see.

When push comes to shove America can be your best friend or worst enemy. I just hope we choose to act before we are brought down from within.

Hey, sounds great to me. But, I said the same thing to my democrat friend the other day. He asked, "What do we do with the waste?"

I sure could use a rebuttal for him--got one?

Our friends, the Saudi’s. The State Department doesn’t have a clue.

“What do we do with the waste?”

Dump it in a subduction zone.

Bechtel Engineering, way back in the 1970s, devised concrete and steel casks that could contain the nuclear waste safely.

These casks can be lowered into a deep ocean subduction trench and recycled back under the North American continent. It will be drawn under the weight of a continent and thinned a molecule thick. This will take millions of years. And the best part - we never even have to leave our territorial waters.

One more 9/11 type terrorist attack in America and every muzzie swinging dick will have to pack up his koran & family and go back to whatever hellhole they originated from.

Our ancestors didn’t risk life & limb to emigrate to this country just so a bunch of camel jockeys could come here, terrorize our women & children and make hamburger out of our families.

Sooner or later, we are going to have to give the muzzies the jihad they so desperately want.

And this time, we will finish the job.

Semper Fi,
Kelly

“So the US and Saudis have each other by the balls: we got their money and they got our oil. “

No, it’s quite one-sided. Did you see Bush grovel before the Saudi king begging him to reduce oil prices?

“But, we can’t hurt them too much ‘cause we want their oil, and they can’t hurt use too much ‘cause they want our money.”

Oil is fungible. They’ve shown they have our government pretty much bought.
