Replace capitalism with Islamic financial system: (Islamic) cleric
Breitbart ^ | 10/22/2008

Posted on 10/12/2008 9:21:42 AM PDT by libh8er

Muslims should take advantage of the global financial crisis to build an economic system compatible with Islamic principles, influential Sunni cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi said on Sunday.

"The collapse of the capitalist system based on usury and paper and not on goods traded on the market is proof that it is in crisis and shows that Islamic economic philosophy is holding up," said the Egyptian-born, Qatar-based cleric.

"The Western system has collapsed and we have a complete economic philosophy as well as spiritual strength," he said at Sunday's opening of a conference on Jerusalem.

"All riches are ours... the Islamic nation has all or nearly all the oil and we have an economic philosophy that no one else has," Qaradawi said.

He urged Muslims to "profit from the crisis to bring about the triumph of the (Islamic) nation, which holds the spiritual and material resources for victory."

The sixth conference on Jerusalem is being attended by around 300 people representing political parties as well as Muslim and Christian NGOs, from various countries.

It is staged by Al-Quds (Jerusalem) International Institution, which is dedicated to the conservation of the holy city and its sacred places.

Participants include Khaled Meshaal, exiled head of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, and Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iranian spiritual leader Ali Khamenei.

The three-day conference will look at ways of protecting Jerusalem and its holy sites, which participants believe are threatened by Israel.

Trying to decide if he’s uglier than Yasser Arafat - I vote no, but it’s close.

I have read London has Islamic banking - wonder how that’s working out?

Without Western science, engineering, resourcefulness and know-how the Arabs would still be using oil to grease their camels.

Exactly. Which is why we need to be doing everything we can to develop alternative energy sources and cars that run on alternative energy sources. Reduce the value of oil and let these primitive screwheads pound sand.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

-Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).

Ask over 200 Chicago area Muslims if they prefer Shariah finance.

Google “Salman Ibrahim” Chicago and please also note that one of the banks involved has direct links to Obama’s pal Giannoulis (sp?) at Broadway Bank.

Also, please note that the Sunrise Equities principals who absconded with all the cash are big money Obama donors and bundlers.

Nary a word about this in the news, although I’ve been trying to get the word out.

I’d provide links, but am on pda at the moment.

Man, that dude's got a serious ugly problem...........

When I see pictures of Muslim clerics, it reenforces my belief that the reason they don't get their 72 virgins until they are dead, is because living women won't have anything to do with them. LOL

All riches are ours... the Islamic nation has all or nearly all the oil...

Which is why Satan chose to start islam in that part of the world. It meant that his followers, dumb as they were and are, would have money to further his evil designs.

It seems obvious to me that we are going to have to fight them, and I mean a WWII level of "fight" (that is, all out). I wish it were not so, but it is.
