I do not know how many of my readers actually have taken the time to go over to the Sultan’s site, but this may encourage you to subscribe:
The American Taxpayer’s 300+ Billion Dollar Bailout of Sharia Finance
We’re in the third round of bailouts for Citigroup, after the US government already has taken a 36 percent stake in the bank. This makes the US government the largest shareholder of a bank, whose second largest shareholder is Saudi Prince Alaweed Bin Talal.
Currently American taxpayers are in hock for 45 billion dollars to bailout Citigroup, while the Treasury, the FDIC and the Federal Reserve cover 90 percent of Citi’s 335 billion dollar losses. The numbers are scary and since most financial experts predict that the bailout isn’t done yet, is likely to only be the beginning. It’s unclear how much US taxpayer will have to go into debt in order to bail out Citigroup.
But in bailing out Citigroup, the American taxpayer isn’t simply bailing out Prince Alaweed Bin Talal’s bank, who actually increased his stake at the end of 2008 when investors were jumping overboard, or protecting the investment of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, aka Dubai. We’re also engaging in a 300 billion dollar plus bailout of Sharia finance. Because Citigroup’s Islamic Banking operation represents the world’s leading of Islamic loans and Sukuk bonds.
Citigroup pioneered the big bank embrace of Sharia finance back in the 90’s. Citigroup co-launched the Dow Jones Sukuk bond index in 2006. Citigroup continues to help bring Sharia finance across the world with its wholly owned subsidiary, the Citi Islamic Investment Bank.
And the terrorist connections aren’t hard to find either. Citi Islamic Investment Bank is overseen by “eminent” Sharia scholars. For example Nazih Hammad, President of Citi Islamic Investment Bank’s Sharia board. Nazih Hammad is a board member of the North American Fiqh Council.
The North American Fiqh Council is another one of the Saudi front groups operating in America, one of whose trustees was Alamoudi, an Al Queda fundraiser. The North American Fiqh Council’s former President, Taha Jaber Al-Alawani, was an unindicted co-conspirator in the case of Islamic Jihad leader, Sami Al Arian. And there was board member Sheikh Muhammad al-Hanooti, who had extensive Hamas ties.
Now to close the circle is the Obama connection. Citigroup provided half a million dollars to ACORN, essentially money directed for the Obama campaign’s Get Out the Vote fraud program. Citigroup partnered with Acorn Housing Works to provide a specialized mortgage program for ACORN, the exact sort of program that caused the economic disaster in the first place.
Now – go read the rest!
I will add this site to my ever growing list of sites to read.
How do you keep track of all this stuff? There doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day! 🙂
Jack? I will sleep when I am dead,….and….I type fast. 🙂
Once you open the door to Sharia Finance you are paving the way for Sharia Law to sneak into the United States the way it did in England. The banking establishment is the back door Sharia (also known as Shariah) Law proponents use to worm their way into the society of western countries.
Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury stated it was unavoidable that Shariah Law would be practiced in England. Now, her Majesty’s Government has allowed the establishment of at least five Sharia Family Courts to hear (initially) family law cases. Islamic Court rulings are now enforceable in the UK. Also the Canadian government permits the enforcement of Shariah.
If you accept Sharia money or do business with a Shariah Bank,(get a loan, mtg, etc) you had better read the fine print carefully. When you do business with a Sharia Bank you are subject to their “Sharia-Compliant Finance”.
Sharia-promoting Islamists are seeking to achieve “parrellel societies” here in the United States and elsewere in the west.
Department of The Treasury Secretary Robert Kimmett (under the Bush administration) visited Saudi Arabia and other oil rich persian Gulf States for the purpose of recycling of petro dollars in the form of foreign investment in the United States.
The United States Treasury Department under the guidance of Henry Paulson and Neil Kashkari sponsored a seminar at the treasury department entitled “Islamic Finance 101”.(The Treasury Dept. has a web site “Islamic Finance 101”.) This seminar was co-sponsored with Harvard University Law School’s Project on Islamic Finance.
Shariah-Compliant Finance seems to be the current policy line in the Treasury Department.
If, in exchange for Islamic investment in the United States we allow Islamists to gain a foothold over other muslims(and others) in the U.S. we are, indeed, aiding and abetting them to obtain their object, which is to supplant our government and Constitution. This is just another part of the overall plan to take over our country by the Cabal of Evil.
There’s lots more, but I will stop with the fear that some of your readers, Diamond, already might think I’m in lala land.
The story of the TV station manager in Buffalo who recently beheaded his wife is all too true and indicitive of what we may expect more of if this Shariah Financing is allowed to continue.
There is already a Shariah Bank in Ann Arbor, MIchigan, near the University Campus. IMO it was established there to be close to the unwary college students who need a bank relationship.
Diamond, is this one of the rabbit holes you have been spending so much in?
For readers who may doubt the interest of our own Treasury Department in this subject go to their web site “Islamic Finance 101” and ask yourself – why is our government so anxious to accomodate this program?
Diamond and others, I am learning more each day:
Lee – you are right on the money, so to speak – not in lala land. I read something on That’s Me On The Left’s site way back in aug or sept before the election about sharia finance. Here is the problem folks – we need to start breaking up the research. This is a 3-d Chess Game with levels – I am but one person with about 26 different “jobs” that I am responsible for in my family’s lives. For those who want to know – I have been chasing think tanks and institutions that aren’t even being talked about – when am I going to be able to track down sharia finance? Everybody decide what you want to chase and leave a comment here for the others. I need someone to chase down the corporate members of CFR, someone to chase down the finance, someone to chase down the stockholders of the Fed, someone to chase down just trilateral and bambi’s advisors that are on that commission…etc, etc, etc, while I keep working on “The Board” (as in company, no white). What say you?
p.s. – if you want to do this – buy or obtain a whiteboard – you are going to need it to map the connections.
frak – one more thing. Everybody who really has been paying attention knows that we are reaching critical mass. We have states passing sovereignty laws, the bc lawsuits, the military, the governors rejecting the stimulus, england’s socialism coming to american, yada, yada, yada. Everybody start looking for a MAJOR CRISIS to happen in the next couple of days to take everybody’s minds off the converging threads. Understand?
You’re confirming something that I’ve been wondering to myself…that just when all this stuff about Obama’s BC and the Fed and all the crap we’ve been taking about comes to light and the general public is just about to grasp it all wouldn’t it be convenient if there was some “crisis” that happens to take the focus away. I’d have to assume that it’d have to be something major. It’s what I’d do if I were some evil mastermind.
Diamond, I’ll get a whiteboard as soon as I can.
I’ve been trying to keep track of many intertwining things and their relation to each other on different legal pads, but it is too difficult to keep things straight this way.
I don’t know why I didn’t think of a whiteboard, but I’ve got so many things running around in my mind these days, that the obvious just didn’t register.
I’ve already been working on the CFR in relation to somethng else, so perhaps I’ll begin there.
I, too, have been expecting it to start hitting the fan pretty soon, since Congress is trying to circumvent the State’s Right’s Sovereignty action, by trying to pass legislation to head it off before it goes wildfire.
Hang in there, Diamond.
I have a question about the Sultans site. I know you’re very busy, but there was a link to an article about these militant Muslims supporting Ron Paul. Now from everything I’ve read and heard, which admittedly may not be much, is that Ron Paul is one of the good guys trying to get this country back to following the Constitution. This goes back to my comment yesterday about who do you trust, who has an agenda and how can you tell if they do?
This whole thing is like one of those Russian dolls where when you pull it apart there’s another one inside…is there an end?
Ron Paul has rolled over. He may not be one of the good guys any more. They all eventually roll over it seems.
I will take on the trilateral commission….I will get a whiteboard!
Jack – you are catching on…that’s why the whiteboard to keep track of the webs. Hey, been here yet? Let your computer load the bambi graphic – took my computer about 15 minutes. It is on the right hand side, gray box stating “visual map”. Then tell me that a whiteboard is not necessary? LOL
BTW, ever been to Discover The Networks?
How about this one…you guys are going to love it:
At this point, after everything that I have packed into my head, I am surprised it hasn’t exploded. 🙂
I did a paper a couple of months ago on the Trilateral Commission. I’ll try to dig out all the information I had, and post the important parts here if you are interested and Diamond doesn’t mind.
You’ll want to start with David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brezezinski. Those two pieces of garbage founded the Commision in 1973. David Rockefeller and his trillions bought a presidential candidate in 1976 by the name of Jimmy Carter, and he had 26 members of the Commission in his administration.(Probably more, but after I located 26, I went on to other pieces of the puzzle). The Trilateral
Commission is an offshoot of the Bilderberg Group, also with David Rockefeller one of the top dogs. One thing about Rockefeller, he admits that he is trying to change the outlook of America. He tells it all in his book.
Once you get into researching this entity, you will be shocked at the people you would never have suspected to be members.
I would never have believed it of Ron Paul, but I’m going to dig into this and see what I can find out. It may be a red herring to turn us against him because he is dissing the Federal Reserve and demanding an investigation of their activties. That is bigggggggggggg money there and they could easily buy statements from almost anybody. But you’re right, you never know who you can trust. But don’t get too put off by it until you find out if it is true, or if it is a phoney sham to discredit Ron Paul.
lee e-mail the information to LM she knows how to get it to me…I the author of msplaceddemocrat.com !
