Sharia Compliant Banking in America


Since the 1970’s explosion of Middle Eastern Oil production, Muslim investment has been quietly infiltrating U.S.  banking and home mortgage industries. While we weren’t paying attention Shariah compliant banking has gained an intimidating foothold in our financial markets. The popularity of Sharia complaint home mortgages is growing in the United States and now they are seeking to do business with non-believers.

Let’s examine the basic premise for Sharia compliant home mortgages. Islam forbids the charging or paying of interest (Riba). According to Sharia jurisprudence, Riba is considered one of the seven major sins right up there with having sex with you mother. Really. Given the importance of interest (both earned and paid) to our financial system, red flags should be flying all over America. After all isn’t Capitalism an enemy of Islam or is it the other way around?

Frank Gaffney, the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., has been outspoken on Shariah compliant finance in the United States. According to reports it has been suggested that Islamic transaction law is a subversive coordination that supports jihad. Given the well documented punishments ordered for breaking sharia law should America be incorporating this as a legitimate feature of its financial system?

Guidance Residential (www.guidanceresidential.com) is the largest Sharia compliant residential home financier in America. Guidance Residential is operating in over 23 states and growing. Upon visiting their website and clicking on the Fatawa selection field, I was comforted to find that all Guidance home financing products are certified by their Sharia Supervisory Board as compliant “with Islamic Transaction Law.” This may make Muslims comfortable, but this should be disconcerting (to say the least) for the future of American financial markets and more importantly American Law. Guidance Residential has plans to offer its sharia compliant financial products to all communities regardless of their faith.

What really concern me are the term “Shariah compliant” and all the fine print most mortgages fail to reveal. Perhaps we should ask Barney Frank if his baby Dodd/Frank covers Shariah compliant home lending practices or can we expect a catastrophic Islamic lending bubble burst in our economic future? Is Islamic transaction law predatory in nature? What kind of Shariah compliance will be necessary to satisfy the terms of a no interest loan to a non-believer?

Would it surprise you to know that many sharia compliant banks have received bail outs from our government?  Did you know that Citibank, NA., Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Dow Jones & Co. Inc., Goldman Sachs Group are all sharia compliant banks doing business in the United States? Perhaps we should consider what financial institutions we patronize given they’re mysterious proclivities.

You may be wondering about the massive increases in Mosque construction in the United Sates.  You don’t have to look any further than companies like Guidance. Guidance has been partnering with the American Islamic community for over a decade helping to make Mosque ownership a reality for the faithful. Who or what is the source of over 300 billion dollars in U.S. commercial and residential sharia compliant real estate purchases? Where are the SEC, the Department of Homeland Security and our Congress when we need them most? Probably sucking up to special interests again and ignoring what will be catastrophic consequences of more failed leadership.

It shouldn’t surprise you that one of the first sharia compliant banks in our nation Devon Bank is located in . . . Chicago!  Each and every day one more frightening clue is revealed about Islam’s slow creep toward changing our Nations Laws. Will Americans remain silent while they’re financial system incorporates Islamic law into our American Dream? Perhaps a comprehensive investigation into the sources of these financial instruments should be pursued by our government. Or will Islamic subversion of U.S. law become as common as Obama’s tolerance of Muslim radicalism.

      You should go read your bible about usury – then come talk to me about Sharia Law and how it differs.

      • Charlie Bart

        Please get yourself a good dictionary and look up “usury”!

        • 44rd11

          We are talking about what the BIBLE calls usury – loaning money for a percentage.

        • Common Man

          The way that banks work is they pay interest to the depositors, then they charge interest on loans they make at a rate higher than they pay depositors. The difference covers their costs (salaries, brick and mortar, etc.) and provides some profit for the shareholders that own the bank. We may feel that we are getting the short end of the deal here, but rest assured, a sharia compliant bank will make at least as much money off of their borrowers as non-compliant banks!
          Another point is that the bible says that we should not borrow money at all because it enslaves us…. That includes appliances, i pads, new cars, and even houses….. in other words, we are enslaving ourselves!

      • Thaaff

        44rd11: Will you stop already with the comparing Americans with muslims?! It’s getting old and your malcontent BS toward this country is getting ugly!! I would pay to see you snatched up and dropped in the middle of Egypt….you wouldn’t last a week!! Only a complete IDIOT doesn’t know when they’re well off!! Get out into the real world and try to learn something!

        • Thaaff

          44rd11: Let me guess….you actually are a muslim, right? Am I right?

  • kenhowes

    So how do they do shariah compliant lending? An up-front charge taking the place of interest? “We’ll lend you $55,000, and you’ll owe us $80,000, $25,000 being considered an origination fee”?

    • BlueViolets

      A rose by any other name is still a rose. Interest by any other name is still interest. I guess it makes them feel superior to tell people they don’t charge their own interest. I just wish I could figure out how they speak out of both sides of their mouths and the middle at the same time.

    • Rustytruck

      No matter how they write it up, it’s still interest and that’s the bottom line. They, the Muslim banking industry is breaking their own laws according to the Koran and Islam.

      • 44rd11

        Go read your bible – and tell me then about this aspect of sharia law

        • Rustytruck

          Nobody was talking about the Bible, this was about what Sharia law states. And they state that interest is not allowed according it.

        • 44rd11

          as I said – go read your bible and what it has to say about usury. very MUCH of Islamic law was taken from the Jewish “bible”.

        • Rustytruck

          Oh my God, this is pointless, NOBODY SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE BIBLE, THE SUBJECT WAS THE KORAN AND ISLAM AND NOTHING ELSE FOLLOWS. Man, this is thick!!!

        • Thaaff

          44rd11: Are you actually trying to convince us that you have a well rounded grasp of the Holy Bible??

      Hope that 25K is taxed! Or do they have an answer for that? Religious donation?

  • Sandollar45

    It is time to kick the frickin Muslims out. Either accept our laws and our country or get the hell out. Same with ILLEGALS, what part of they are breaking the law is so hard to understand. It is time to clean house and get both removed from the United States. Along with Obama, he needs to go too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • devilrider

      What are we waiting for? Kick the muslims tails out of this country. Vote OBUMA out of the presidency.

    • digdeeper

      Just hope it’s not too late when that happens. If they don’t accept our Constitution, our traditions, our customs, the American way of life (and dress!), and they want to kill us, they don’t get to live here. Nothing in our Constitution says we have to tolerate the enemy…in fact our illustrious representatives take an Oath of Office to protect us from enemies both foreign AND domestic! Why are they not doing that? Why are we letting them get away with that?

      • Mona

        Right on!!! It is so difficult to talk sense into the closed minded democrat voters! they won’t listen! they turn around and talk rhetoric they have heard from the democrat leaders– the practiced, professional liars like Clinton (both), obummer, Pelosi, etc. If we don’t get through to them, they will remain ignorant and easy to lead as dumb sheep.

        • 44rd11

          Americans are sheep, led by a shepherd that is working with the wolves. Got to be my favorite quote of the day.

        • Thaaff

          44rd11: If you are so unhappy with America and Americans, guess what – there’s a whole world out there! Bye bye!

        • StopUSA

          The point is those of us whom have stood up…have been repeatedly knocked down and by others who refuse to believe the truth!

        • Mary West

          Democrats are NOT Americans! You are not American.

      • 44rd11

        because THEY are the enemy – oath breakers. Why are you letting them get away with it – mostly because we don’t really care about anyone but ourselves – an haven’t for years. Pork – it’s who can bring home the most bacon while lining their own pockets with money stolen from taxpayers. Money is America’s God – and we can be bought – like getting a toaster from the bank for opening an account. Everything is on sale – even your grandmothers grave – if it will bring money. Your religion is for sale – pass the plate.

        • Thaaff

          44rd11: Bye bye!

          Only a moron would tell you to leave this country.Leave the country because I don’t like what’s going on?Really?
          Listen…how about you take yourself and anyone who backs this system of corruption and it’s fake Goldman Sachs puppet presidents,and it’s bought and paid for congress and GTFO of this country!Take your sniveling globalist RINOs and your counterparts the Dems and just GTFO.You people like yourself are the reason we’re in the sh@t we’re in.
          Why don’t you grow a pair and stand up to the corruption and abuse?Nah you’d rather whine and tell people who actually care about the situation to leave…FN loser I hear Venezuela is accepting immigrants.

        • Mary West

          I hope that is you telling us you are leaving this post go to the liberal post you usually follow. Americans only here.

      • Thaaff

        digdeeper: That’s a question I ask every day! Why?? One reason I can think of….the sheeple and non-thinkers; for the last century, government schools have been dumming us down to create what we have now!

        • Linda

          Calling names is not persuasive argument. I have never seen a post using the word ‘sheeple’ that goes on to suggest a practical way to go about reclaiming our government from the thieves and con-men who are running it. Vote for the other party? Maybe, if our votes were counted, and not diluted by allowing illegal aliens, felons, dead people and pets to vote.

          So, any real suggestions, or do you just want to insult us?

        • Mary West

          Suggestion: vote Romney/Ryan

        • Mary West

          That is the useless garble of liberals and college students.

    Having spent nearly 30 years in the title insurance and mortgage industry, I have seen these packages in the Tampa Bay area since 2002. I wrote an article about this, and what is most disturbing is that fact that there is a letter in the package informing the borrower that he is signing documents for federal compliance only that do not reflect the true transaction. I believe this is a violation of Fair Lending Laws of the federal government.http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2011/04/30/Shariah-Compliant-Mortgage-Financing-Available-in-the-U-S
    This IS an issue, as I believe that this financing is not available to non-Muslims and is discriminating against them.

    • Common Man

      Isn’t the principle increased accordingly to offset the interest. The way that I picture it is the principle becomes the total amount paid over 30, 15 or however many years… this would be the number you see in the truth in lending document. For example, if you are buying a house for $150,000, then the total amount paid over 30 years will end up being, let’s say about $300,000. (everyone who has ever signed a mortgage has had their breath taken away when they see this number on the documents!)…. So if I understand Sharia lending, you are buying a $150,000 house for $300,00 at 0 percent interest……My question is, what happens if you get transferred after 5 years and have to sell the house, do you still owe the bank the remainder of the $300,000?

      • William Pritchett

        Kinda sounds like there is interest sneaking around in there somewhere.

      • Flying Eagle

        There are already so many Sharia law compliant banks & other institutions in the US right now. Just to name a few. Merrill Lynch, Citibank NT & in many cities, Starbucks has already started to implement Sharia law into their businesses by making Americans pay for their 4.00 coffees by using an app on their phone instead of letting them pay cash. Lou & Dobs (sp) is also another big lending company that is Sharia law compliant. These people that are thinking Obama is trying to help OUR country need to open their eyes & realize he’s only wanting to destroy AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL.

        “VOTE TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY- VOTE NO TO OBAMA”

        • Mary West

          I wonder if these lending institutions are using this as a tax evasion method. If they loan to Muslims no gain. If they use” Sharia” in the language are they evading taxes? I would not be surprised if Obama sanctioned that.. VOTE: Romney/Ryan

    • Thaaff

      Whoa, Laura – This IS an issue! Have you contacted your state’s representatives about what you’ve found (of course, you needn’t bother with the democrats)? Maybe everyone who has read this article should do just that! If enough of us bug them enough…who knows? It might end up with an investigation! That would be good!

    • Mary West

      Apparently they do not care. I wonder who is paying theTaxes on the loans? If it is “Sharia” they may be using that as a way of avoiding taxes like the churches get exemptions. That is tax evasion-a Fed crime.Anyone up for whistleblowing?

    I have several expletives for sharia, all of which would never get past the nazi censors.

  • 1-Eddie-1

    Islam is a cancer that will rot us from the inside out. We have to recognize that Islam is not a religion, but a brutal tyrannical government complete with its own laws in place that is shrouded by the appearance of a religion. Islam is incompatible with the western way of life. The entire world is on fire right now against the USA because of Islam. We must excise this threat post haste.

    • fort9erdon

      Islam is not a religion, no, it is an agenda for world domination. We sit here quietly as Obama leads us to slaughter at the hands of the Muslims, just as sure as Hitler led the Jews to slaughter in WW2 Germany! The sad part is, short of having an “open season” on Muslims, they have come too far to fail in there quest. Simply due to their numbers, having children at a rate of 8.2 children per family, per generation, per wife, in less than 40 years, Muslims WILL BE a majority in the USA! When that happens there will be complete Sharia law, and the constitution will be gone. If you are not willing to kill or totally deport Muslims today, they will be cutting your grandchildrens throats in 40 years. I know it’s a tough choice, but without making the right choice, your kids are dead!

      • 44rd11

        Saying that Islam is not a religion doesn’t make it so. If Christians had there way – the world would be dominated by Christians – and they tried that – but Christians really only worship gold (money) and that god failed them. and no, they won’t be cutting your grandchildrens throats, your grand children will be on their prayer rugs three times a day facing mecca – or tax slaves to a socialist democracy state. More likely – they might be speaking Chinese.

        • fort9erdon

          Thank you for verifying my point. Which are you, a Muslim or Chinese?

        • 44rd11

          Neither – what I am not is an “American Christian”. My God is the Father of us all, Jesus is his only begotten son who will inherit the earth, Lord of Lords and King of Kings. God, our Spiritual Father and creator, works through His own holy spirit which he sends to dwell in us.

          I am no prophet, nor would I want to be – me and Jonah have something in common – but be warned – the road that America travels today only leads to destruction. Unfortunately – America, the United States, is NOT Nineveh – and so is unlikely to repent in sackcloth and ashes and be spared. Jeremiah – warned Judah to no avail – they were set on the path to their own destruction – because of corruption and the worship of god’s other than their God. America worships money – and all, everything else, even their children are sacrificed to it. Passing children through the fires of Moloch is no worse than sending your children off to government schooling where they are taught that God is nothing, not to be revered, and that the state is above all else. they will become slaves, tax slaves to their masters in Washington – but they will like it – just as the Soviet people came to depend on the state and dreaded it’s passing and are more than ready to go back under communism where they are cared for.

        • Flying Eagle

          AMEN & AMEN. Too bad everyone doesn’t worship GOD. Our King of Kings. I just pray right now that what 44 just wrote will touch just one un-saved person.

        • Flying Eagle

          I’m a Christian 44. And I can tell you right now I worship only GOD. The people that worship money instead of GOD are putting their souls in danger. I cannot stand to see what this man is doing to OUR wonderful country; but the time has come to where only WE THE PEOPLE can help save our country. It is written that if GOD’S people will pray & ask HIM to help us save our country that he will. But we all have to pray & have the faith that HE will. As for my family, friends & myself; we have been & will continue to pray. Because whether you believe it or not; GOD IS OUR ONLY HOPE NOW!!!!!

          44rd11: Your statement about Christianity is based upon ignorance; you do not seem to know that true Christianity is NOT the same as the Roman Catholic Church….which, when it was the law of the land (Europe) was an even bloodier regime than islam ever was! Entire towns and villages were decimated during the middle ages; anybody who dared to even question the church ended up in a torture chamber and then were either hung or burned alive at the stake! After awhile (in the fifteenth century), there was finally a revolt ala Martin Luther and others, when Protestantism came into being. The ones who could fled Europe, including England of course, and fled to America to begin a nation in which a free people could worship the Lord in truth…not under threat! When you cited “worshipping gold”, that is true….for the Roman Catholic Church, which now stands arm in arm with islam, is corrupt to the bone and is working right along with the globalists like the Bush’s and Obama’s to bring about a New World Order! The Roman Catholic Church is NOT the measure of true Christianity!

        • Citizen60

          I love how the left always seems to think they understand Christianity. You don’t. So go back to booing God and leave Christianity to the Christians.

          I thought this was the time to get out the vote for saving America. Arguing and throwing spit balls distracts. Religion is not the issue, saving America and FREEDOM is the issue. We ca leave the rest to politicians. Too many are getting sidetracked over religion. God will not judge us on religious doctrine He will judge us on our hearts and works. This is the way liberals and college students squabble. Neither know how to have a logical train of thought.

  • Tom54

    My question is that this means the bank(s) are lending these people and or businesses money at ZERO percent interest? Kinda like government. Charge the haves more so the have nots can get it for free. I am checking my bank and if necessary I will find one NOT Sharia compliant.

    • Mona

      Why don’t we protest, demand, yell, advertise, expose all of this as DISCRIMINATION against AMERICANS (true Americans–not just those born or naturalized here to call themselves Americans. American vs Americanis…..)Because we are NOT Muslim, we are discriminated against and must pay interest? Let’s DO something about it. People here cry discrimination when there is none. Let us use their methods to gain what we want. Know your opposition’s ways and copy them. I am serious!!!! Let us do what we can with “DISCRIMINATION” based on not being muslim (on religious grounds) and lower our interest rate to zero!

      • Thaaff

    Scripture References to Usury, Interest

    (All references are from the New King James Bible)

    25 ” If you lend money to any of My people who are poor among you,
    you shall not be like a moneylender to him; you shall not charge him interest.

    26 “If you ever take your neighbor’s garment as a pledge, you shall
    return it to him before the sun goes down.

    27 “For that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin.
    What will he sleep in? And it will be that when he cries to Me, I will
    hear, for I am gracious. (Exodus 22:25-27)

    may live with you.

    37 ‘You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food
    at a profit. (Leviticus 25:35-37)

    —————

    19 ” You shall not charge interest to your brother — interest on
    money or food or anything that is lent out at interest.

    15:10)

    ———-

    7 If he has not oppressed anyone, But has restored to the debtor his
    pledge; Has robbed no one by violence, But has given his bread to the
    hungry And covered the naked with clothing;

    8 If he has not exacted usury Nor taken any increase, But has withdrawn
    his hand from iniquity And executed true judgment between man and man;

    9 If he has walked in My statutes And kept My judgments faithfully —

    So, you put all your money in the bank – soon a requirement that you cannot use cash – they pay you what ? .01% interest – and they charge what when they loan it out 4 to 6%? and YOU put up with this.

    I hav e been saying this for 20 years and I will till I die, get this Cult out of our Country and take Abominatioon and Biden and our Corrupt Complicit Congress with them!! This election is for the life of our Country and if we don’t vote out this Illegal Kenyan Born Sunni Muslim Communist Semi White Half Breed we are doomed to Poverty and Communism run by a Muslim. Women should be very worried what a Sunni Muslim will do to Women and their Abortions on demand. Shut up and be silent,thats what!!! A Lame Duck President who has just started buying bad loans again QE3 and printing money lowering our buying power of our dollar even more. I take back what I said earlier about the debt if he’s re-elected its not going to be $24-$28 Trillion its going to be $35-$40 Trillion dollars. Viet Nam Vet 67-68

      WHEN YOU VOTE IN NOVEMBER, REMEMBER, THIS COULD BE OUR LAST FREE ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT. THERE IS THE BELIEF THAT OIL WILL BE $500 A BARREL. HE HAS SEEDED THE COURTS, SO THE RULE OF LAW WILL BE HISTORY. HE HAS SET UP ALL HIS AGENCIES WITH CZARS, BYPASSING CONGRESS. HE HAS TAKEN OVER CONTROL OF BOTH THE EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL BRANCHES, SETTING THE STAGE FOR A GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER. HE HAS UNDERMINED OUR MILITARY WITH OPEN HOMOSEXUALITY. THERE IS AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF MUSLIMS WHO ENTER OUR MILITARY (WHICH SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED UNLESS YOU ARE AN AMERICAN). ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF THIS MAN AS PRESIDENT, AND WE WILL NOT RECOGNIZE OUR COUNTRY. WE WILL THINK WE ARE IN ONE OF THE SOVIET SATELLITE COUNTRIES AT BEST, AND IN EGYPT/AFRICA AT WORSE. PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS A HISTORY OF BEING AT ODDS WITH AMERICAN VALUES AND WITH AMERICA ITSELF, ALONG WITH THE CORE PRINCIPALS OF THIS COUNTRY.
      AMERICA……WAKE UP…….BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

    Muslim-owned Sharia compliant institutions currently hold approximately 1 TRILLION DOLLARS. The interest earned on the money BEFORE it is put to work is in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Where does the money go?

    To support terrorism. The time has passed for Americans to ask questions about how their daily decisions affect their neighbors and our Nation.

    It is becoming ever apparent that we are being sold out by politicians, both Democrat and Republican who are fattening their wallets with mid-east money.

    Let’s understand something. Sharia, or no sharia, the banking industry reeks. It is owned and run by vermin- rich vermin, but vermin nonetheless. These people rule the WORLD- and are creating a New World Order, as they call it. They are responsible for every evil that is common to mankind. They do everything from promote homosexuality, abortion,poverty, disease, and homelessness. They own the Federal Reserve, run the IRS, and control every disaster,war, and possibly even the weather. They are EVIL, and seek to demonize people groups to turn the spotlight off their own wickedness. And they are doing a good job, because they generally get the blame for very little. The Muslims, white folks, whoever- are responsible for problems that THEY create. They turn people against each other. But- united we stand, divided we fall. They try to keep us divided, because THAT is one of the means that they will use to succeed. People need to get wise to their evil machinations, because that is the only way that we will survive.

    I am not one for Sharia Compliant Banking, but can someone explain in more detail exactly what these banks do differently from a regular bank. I think the article was really lacking specifics, which I am interested to understand.

    How does a bank make money without charging interest? What is wrong with this stupid nation anyway?

    • 44rd11

      You do see – with US it is ALL about making money.

    • gary popkin

      A Sharia bank might buy a home from a seller and then sell the home to a buyer at a higher price. The buyer pays off the purchase price to the bank in installments. The bank makes its profit from the sale, and technically avoids charging interest. There are many other such workarounds from which banks can profit without technically charging interest.

  • Ed Savage

    to 44rd11 : Why are the scriptures on usury being quoted? Last time I looked Christianity or Judaism weren’t forcing the financial institutions of this country to conduct business using a Christianity or Judaism based law. Religion is not in control of the laws of this country. The financial institutions follow the statutes as set down by the government (except when they don’t). Yes, many of the precepts that are incorporated into the statutes are derived from religious precepts, but these statutes are not dictated to the government by any specific religion. And the civil law of this country should not be dictated by any specific religion. There should be one set of laws for all citizens and maybe green card holders. You move here and become a citizen – you live under our laws. Period! End of story!

    • 44rd11

      You are correct – but as a “Christian” country that everyone keeps yammering about – shouldn’t you be living according to the Bible? to the law set down by God and the teachings of Jesus? I was merely balancing the fact that there is NO difference between Sharia Law and Christian Law as set forth in the respective “holy books”. ONE, not perhaps even the greatest one, but one of the reasons Muslims consider us infidels is that we are not what we claim (christians) and if we are – we don’t practice what we preach nor do we follow the laws set down in our “holy book”. We are morally bankrupt – look at Obama’s fund raiser in NYC just this last week with “playboys” with dollars stuffed in their bikini’s. American men have become effeminate, openly homosexual which is a sin against “our God” and theirs. They have no respect for a people who are as degenerate and corrupt as America – who by every dent tries to push our values (what values) on them and their world.

    I really cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would put Obama & his evil empire in charge of our great country for another 4 years. It doesn’t make sense. I hear so many people saying that they can’t understand all the hate for him. I have a friend that told me I needed to watch the news & I could find out for myself that he’s doing all he can for this country. And I let her know that was the # 1 reason I quit watching the news.

    I told her she needed to check out a lot of things on the Internet & gave her several websites to go to if she really wanted to know the truth about Obama. It’s truly sickening how Obama has paid the media to fill Americans heads with lie after lie. It’s gotten to the point the media is really enjoying spreading all the lies. But one thing is for certain. These people that are just still in AWE over this clown NEED TO WAKE UP QUICKLY. They need to realize OUR COUNTRY is in grave danger as it is. And if this Muslim loving dictator is re-elected; we can all KISS our great country goodbye.

    from 44 to me:
    You are correct – but as a “Christian” country that everyone keeps
    yammering about – shouldn’t you be living according to the Bible? to
    the law set down by God and the teachings of Jesus?

    From me:
    That’s the whole point of the Constitution – the country is secular in its laws, but the laws exist because of Jewish and Christian teachings. But those teachings or groups don’t set the laws. The laws are supposed to be set according to the basic rules set forth in the Constitution.

    I don’t force anyone to believe or not. What I do want is a country where the laws are just and equal and apply, when written in compliance with the Constitution, TO EVERYONE EQUALLY.

    Leave me alone and I will leave you alone. You break the law and you should go to jail or something (not really sure what since we are dealing in generalities here). But DO NOT make special laws for special groups in the US. I don’t want to force the immigrants to dress a certain way or live a certain way as long as they live within the laws of this society and do not try to force us to change to their ways. Don’t want enclaves where they are allowed to break laws because it is against their religion. On the level where immigrants have to deal with society as a whole, there should be no special dispensations – on a personal level, they can worship the twisty light bulb if they want as long as they don’t force the worship of it on me (or honor killings, or human sacrifice, or beating your wife cause it is good for her, or anything that makes this a less civil society or breaks legitimate laws. (And don’t start an argument over “one man’s legitimate is another’s oppression. We do not have time for sophomoric diversions.)

    Why does it seem that we are always bending our rules and policies to comply with someone else’s needs? Anyone who comes to this country should adopt our rules, laws, policies, language, etc. but we seem to adopt this ‘political correctness’ theory and placate to our enemy even on our own soil. America, this is very scary and the Democrats have many more scary things in our future if we don’t get rid of them. America is already not America anymore but 4 more years of Obama, Democrats and their agenda and America will not be recognizable.

You are A moron! These atacks happened on 9-11 not 6-5 when it was releast. Why the hell would they wait 3 months to show their anger? These actacks were planed to conspire on 9-11 what they consider A major muslum victory over America. It has been nothing less than A victory dance on the graves of Americans killed on 9-11.

  • spin43

    I warned my non-communist senator about this when Obama was elected. I receive 2/10ths of 1% investing in a savings with more than $60,000 at BB&T bank. Isn’t that pretty close to Sharia compliant? Bernanke is trying to pull mortgage rates down to close to zero percent. Isn’t that a step closer to Sharia compliance?

    Islam a danger to the world. Look at what is happening in europe. If we let it , it will be here on a larger scale then we would like. Maybe it is time for our elective political leaders to get a hold on the issue and face it. Muslims across the world are killing people for their tenets. We had better discover what they are or we will rue the day when they get a greater foothold in America. Your president will tell you Islam is a peaceful religion, and would be a lie. We have Afghanis , who we have tried to help, turn around and kill Americans, why because they are infidels and not muslim. Learn Islam tenets, study Islam and their goals. Please don’t believe me or anyone else, study it for yourself and then look around. Some day you will have to make a choice, if you don’t know for sure, you will waiver. There are plenty resources out there pro and con, I suggest you read both and see what fits the worlds activity. I believe you have been sold a bill of good by Obama.
