From a Washington Times column by Frank Gaffney reporting on today’s educational program at the United States Treasury Department. I got this from the PowerLine blog.
“The department is hosting a half-day course entitled “Islamic Finance 101” on Thursday at its headquarters building. Treasury’s self-described “seminar for the policy community” is co-sponsored with the leading academic promoters of Shariah and [Shariah-Compliant Finance, or SCF] in the United States: Harvard University Law School’s Project on Islamic Finance. At the very least, the U.S. government evidently hopes to emulate Harvard’s success in securing immense amounts of Wahhabi money in exchange for conforming to the Islamists’ agenda.”
One thing I do know, we don’t want Shariah law in this country. England has already adopted Islamic Shariah law courts. Wonder where that will lead to next. Read about it here.
UPDATE: It appears that the link above was not working properly. I hope I have it working now.
Two more articles may provide interesting reading on this subject.
