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, its 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).
There is definitely a certain strain in Western society that thinks it can ride the tiger. The possibility that the tiger can turn on them and eat them is dismissed with a wink and chuckle.
