what the hell does that mean anyway?
"This development has been actively pushed by the government. When he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown declared that he wanted London to become the global centre of Islamic banking. You can obviously see the attraction, especially in these straightened times. But the only thing our politicians and bankers appear to see is the seductive prospect of trillions of pound and dollar signs dancing before their bedazzled eyes."
I wonder if she's referring to the trillions of pounds and dollars that because they're in Sharia banks, don't accrue interest.
I dont think I've read a stupider article
"But charity in Islam is more like solidarity. So some of this money donated to Islamic charities may well find its way to organisations promoting jihad and supporting suicide bombing including Hamas, Hezbollah, the families of Palestinian suicide bombers and Islamist madrassas in places like Pakistan." - nice bit of inflammatory language there.
Idiotic article. Sharia banking is not going to "Islamise Britain and America".
