First it was HSBC, now its Standard Chartered too. Both big banks did business with the worlds foremost sponsor of Jihadist terrorism in violation of US sanctions.
There is something else that both of these banks have in common: they are both extremely active in promoting Shariah-Compliant Finance in the West.
Shariah Finance Watch has a whole category devoted to Standard Chartereds Shariah operations for those who require more background:
It is BEYOND significant that two of the biggest promoters of Shariah Finance also were in blatant disregard of regulations and enforcement designed to combat terrorism financing.
Standard Chartereds despicable executives have been reassuring Western observers for years that there is no threat from Shariah-Compliant Finance. They have now been proven untrustworthy. The fact is, Standard Chartereds executive personnel should be going to prison. That wont happen, of course, since the folks who enforce such laws are often industry insiders, so they will get off by paying hefty fines.
But they should never be trusted again and their claims with regard to Shariah should especially be disregarded as blatant lies.
This isn’t a surprise to Eric Holder and Barrack Hussein Obama, they knew it all along.
Being deliberately in the dark about what is going on is a habit with this administration.As soon as something comes out they claim to know nothing.
The most corrupt administration ever to hit America.
There is a LOT of Arab oil money flowing through London. One reason why the “politicians” there kow-tow to muslims.
