Shariah-compliant Financing Pt. II

I first wrote about this in November, and now with all the money we taxpayers shoveled at AIG ($40 billion) they seem to be working against our security.

AIG announced the introduction of a Takaful Homeowners Policy Dec 01, 2008, offering “important and emerging growth opportunity for AIG Commercial Insurance.”

What is Shariah Financing?

Sharia is a legal codification of the political ideology of Islamic supremacism. This Sharia legal codification is intended to enforce discriminatory and segregationist practices against women and non-Muslims and to suppress the liberties of those living in Islamic theocracies. As a legal codification of a supremacist ideology, Sharia is incompatible with democratic values and the inalienable human right that “all men are created equal.” In 2001, nearly two months before the 9/11 attacks, the European Court of Human Rights determined that Sharia law was incompatible with democracy and human rights. The President of the European Court of Human Rights stated that “the Court found that sharia was incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy as set forth in the Convention… Principles such as pluralism in the political sphere or the constant evolution of public freedoms have no place in it. According to the Court, it was difficult to declare one’s respect for democracy and human rights while at the same time supporting a regime based on Sharia…”. Even British courts have ruled that Sharia is “discriminatory.”

A video produced by Act for America explains;

So exactly how dangerous is it to offer Muslims in America financing solutions with comply with their religious beliefs? We have kosher food and its Islamic equivalent, schools bending over backwards to allow Muslim prayer while other students “twiddle their thumbs“.

Have to first examine the definition of Sharia;

Sharia is the body of Islamic religious law. The term means “way” or “path to the water source”; it is the legal framework within which the public and private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islamic principles of jurisprudence and for Muslims living outside the domain. Sharia deals with many aspects of day-to-day life, including politics, economics, banking, business, contracts, family, sexuality, hygiene, and social issues.

It goes a lot deeper if you click on the link, but suffice it to say that Muslim nations living under Islamic rule govern by the Koran, which controls every aspect of their lives. See the penalties section for all the fun details.

The main danger seems to be the “slippery slope” argument. In the UK for instance, the argument is fast becoming reality where the government there “…quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.” Not that they’ll likely be issuing “stoning” punishments in the near future.

Not without dissent, there are standup folks in the UK who see danger ahead and stand; impotently it seems, against the lapping of the Islamic waves as they get slowly higher. It’s not a tidal wave, rather a slow melting of the ice, filling the glass. Reminds me of a frog in a pan of water with the fire lit, too late does it see the frog know it’s in huge trouble.

So where’s the point we in the US will be in trouble? Not like we elected a President who leans toward political correctness or anything. Nobody in charge of the Senate or House like that.

How far does all this go? How far are we willing to see it go? Is it a danger? I want to know.
