Congressman Allen West: Shariah Finance And Its Radical Ties Demand Close Scrutiny


Comment by Jim Campbell

Said another way, Sharia finance is used to fund violent jihad.  Where Islam flourishes, freedom dies. It is the goal of the Muslim Brother and Hamas to have Islam be the only “religion” on earth.

The results of the Holy Land Foundation trial sent a strong message:

The five defendants, all leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, based in Richardson, a Dallas suburb, were convicted on all 108 criminal counts against them, including support of terrorism, money laundering and tax fraud. The group was accused of funneling millions of dollars to the Palestinian militant group Hamas, an Islamist organization the government declared to be a terrorist group in 1995.

“Money is the lifeblood of terrorism,” Richard B. Roper, the United States attorney whose office prosecuted the case, said Monday in a statement. “The jury’s decision demonstrates that U.S. citizens will not tolerate those who provide financial support to terrorist organizations.”

By REP. ALLEN B. WEST,

As a vehicle for legitimizing and promoting Shariah throughout the world, Shariah-compliant finance is a phenomenon that is taking the financial world by storm right under the noses of American investors.

Given the stated mission of Shariah is to bring about the rule of Islam worldwide, anything that promotes the Shariah mission warrants careful scrutiny. American investors deserve to know where their money is being invested, and the fact that their hard-earned dollars could be helping fund the very radical terrorist groups that are seeking to destroy this nation is shocking.

It is vital that we come to grips and recognize not just the kinetic aspects of radical Islam, but also the idea of “stealth jihad,” which can infiltrate our operating systems.

Shariah is an Arabic term used to describe Islamic doctrinal law regarded in the Islamic world as immutable, indivisible and mandatory for all Muslims to follow in all aspects of life.

Shariah mandates as a religious obligation:

• Violent jihad against non-Muslims to establish Islam’s rule worldwide.

• The killing of apostates from Islam.

• The killing of adulterers and homosexuals.

• Severe discrimination against women, including stoning.

• Barbaric punishment, such as limb amputations and gouging out of eyes for petty crimes like theft.

• Severe discrimination against, and the subjugation of, non-Muslims.

• Last, and most pertinent to this subject, is Shariah mandates that Muslims who cannot engage in physical jihad using force, must support jihad with money.

Shariah is at the heart of the ideology of terrorist groups such as al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas and other jihadist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood and those who orchestrated the 9/11 attacks on American soil and continue to terrorize and threaten Americans and their way of life.

Many well-known American banking financiers and institutions are involved in Shariah finance for the lure of substantial profits from Middle Eastern petrodollars.

But Shariah finance is not just an innocent form of free-market capitalism. Shariah finance was conceived and is practiced as one of the key instruments of the radical Islamist movement in its struggle against the West.

An astounding $1.5 trillion is currently invested in Shariah finance, and that amount is expected to grow dramatically in the years ahead — thanks largely to the ever-increasing coffers of oil-exporting nations ruled by Shariah, including Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Scrutiny, however, is something Shariah-compliant finance has never had to endure from American policymakers. Shariah finance is almost completely alien from the standards of disclosure and transparency customary in the U.S. and other Western financial markets.

  1. Obama-ass has to go or there will be more control of changes like he says Islam/Sharia take over with Obama-ass’s Muslim brotherhood pals!!!

  2. I agree with West again. Anything to do with Islam is dangerous- very dangerous. They are out to kill and nothing more. Yes they want this country and yes Obama wants them to have it. Why more people don’t see this I have no idea. But it is best to heed all the warning.

  3. Redneck Woman

    I do wonder what Romney would do about the infiltration of Islamic shariah if he happens to get the nomination and wins the Presidential election? Does anyone think it will be any different than what it is now? Would he stop the “stealth Jihad” happening in America or would he turn a blind eye to it cuz he thinks they are a religion of peace?
