Last Friday, Christopher Holton, the Center’s Vice-President for Administration, Marketing and Development and editor of ShariahFinanceWatch.org participated in an hour-long segment on Glenn Beck’s Fox News program, along with Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum. Watch it here:
The main topic of discussion was shariah-complaint finance and the threat it poses to America and Western culture. Shariah compliant finance is the practice of ensuring that all monetary matters are in full compliance with the dictates of Islamic law. Some of these edicts, such as zakat, enable radical Islamists to wage financial jihad to the tune of $1 trillion dollars against the United States. A grave threat indeed. The show also touched on the scandal of the US government’s ownership of the largest provider of Shariah financial products, AIG.
For a very in-depth examination of the issues surrounding Shariah Compliant Finance, see David Yerushalmi’s 72-page paper for the Utah Law Review, Shariah’s Black Box: Civil Liability and Criminal Exposure Surrounding Shariah Compliant Finance. To keep up to date on these issues, follow Christopher Holton’s Shariah Finance Watch blog.
As you know, the Center had been a leader in identifying and exposing the threat Shariah poses to America. This past September, we released the Amazon.com best-seller Shariah: the Threat to America.
Chris’ appearance on Glenn Beck was merely the latest in a long-line of media appearances that the Center has engaged in to educate and articulate the Shariah threat. Thanks to your continued support we will continue in this mission to wage the war of ideas.
