The left supports theocracy as long as it is not Christian.

President Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was “oversimplified” and the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”.

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.

And I certainly don’t get someone from the Administration showing up…oh, but, for this Administration it shouldn’t be a shock at all. By the way, Hizb ut Tahrir had a meeting in suburban Chicago this past July (See: Chicago Suburb Hosts Hizb ut-Tahrir Conference; Organization Aims to Re-Establish an International Islamic State (Caliphate), Supports Jihad).

Right before our eyes, Sharia Finance has fully infiltrated our western banking and financial system. For example, did you know about the Dow Jones Islamic Market Index? Today, most major western financial institutions from Wall Street to Downing Street have rapidly growing divisions dedicated to Sharia Finance including AIG, Citigroup, HSBC, TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, and others.

Why? Because financial institutions need capital to bolster a weakening economy, and Sharia Finance represents one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide. Sharia Finance has already taken a dangerous hold on our financial system.

According to the codes of Sharia Finance, a portion of all funds invested must go to Islamic charities. This provision sounds nice, but the problem is knowing what activities these charities support. Over two dozen Islamic charities in the U.S. for example, have already been classified as terror sponsoring organizations.

But of course in Sharia Finance, it’s up to the Sheikhs to decide which charities are selected.

I recently heard that sharia law also dictates that 1/8 of that charity money must be dedicated to jihad (but I have not confirmed this yet).
