A long list of American financial companies -- odds are, you have a credit card from one or more of them -- have now developed "shariah-compliant finance" (SCF) instruments. This is really, really bad for two reasons: first, SCF promoters openly state that one of the goals of SCF is to soften us into a more general acceptance of shariah law; and, secondly, shariah requires that a certain percentage of the returns on these funds go to "Islamic charities" -- which are notorious for being front organizations for mass-murdering groups such as Hamas.
Turn your clock back 70 years. Imagine that Wall Street banks and brokerages sold Nuremberg-compliant bonds and stock funds in 1938... [and that] American Nazi sympathizers bought financial instruments certified by Berlin-based advisors as free of “Jewish profits” from, say, Salomon Brothers and Bloomingdale’s.
In turn, [imagine that] a percentage of such funds’ gains underwrote pro-Nazi charities, like the German-American Bund, and similar organizations in the Fatherland, like the Hitler Youth.
This is a chilling but appropriate metaphor for what is now going on in America. ACT! for America -- the group founded by Lebanese-American spitfire Brigitte Gabriel -- has a video that we need to share with as many people as possible. It's a very good one to share with people who may not already know a whole lot about this subject -- sort of a "Shariah in the United States" primer for beginners. An eye-opener and discussion-starter:
Video: Shariah Finance
This video is even more timely now than when it was first released a couple of years ago -- i.e., before we had a Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan, who vigorously promoted the shariah-compliant finance program at Harvard Law School when she was the dean there; and before the government takeover of AIG made every U.S. taxpayer a shareholder in one of the largest shariah-compliant finance companies in the U.S.
The attempt to mainstream shariah is being aided and abetted by the "mainstream" media, who are ignoring it -- which ensures that most Americans remain unaware of the problem. One has to go to "new media" outlets such as Breitbart's Big Peace, where national-security experts such as Frank Gaffney are unafraid to report the truth, however disconcerting it may be. Gaffney heads the Center for Security Policy which, last fall, issued the invaluable Team B II Report: Sharia: The Threat to America.
Gaffney also hosts Secure Freedom Radio, a program heard on weeknights around the country. Last week, he interviewed Allen West, who explained that shariah has infiltrated our society across multiple sectors and that recognizing that reality has got to be the first step of any strategy moving forward. He also said we need to pro-actively tailor our economic, educational, political, etc., systems to specifically thwart shariah.
Thwarting the enemy -- what a concept!
