HANDOUT TO ACCOMPANY VIDEO
Christopher Holton of the Center for Security Policy explained what Shariah-compliant finance is, how it was originated and the specific threats that it poses to Western civilization. He explained the overriding mission of Shariah-compliant finance and examined the system of zakat, which is integral to Shariah-compliant finance and by which numerous Islamic charities have been found to fund jihad. Mr. Holton also examined how Shariah-compliant finance is not held to the same standards of disclosure that the rest of the financial world must adhere to and the role of Shariah scholars in Shariah-compliant finance and looked closely at two prominent Shariah scholars in particular as prime examples of the problems that Shariah-compliant finance presents. It did come as a surprise to many people in our audience who are otherwise very informed about the danger of Islam and Shariah to the West to learn of the nations that have already come to dominate Shariah-compliant finance and to the extent that it has infiltrated America.
This event took place in Los Angeles, California on December 19, 2013.
