  • On Zakat, Jihad and Shariah-Compliance

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 5 April 2012 | Unknown
    Here we have two important links that touch on themes that we have covered extensively over the years: Zakat, Jihad and Shariah-Compliant Finance. The first article from the excellent Gates of Vienna blog, points out that one of the destinations of zakat (tithing in Islam) is “those fighting in the way of allah…” http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2012/04/on-zakat-and-jihad.html The second article ties zakat to Shariah-Compliant Finance. It is a column out of Malaysia, one of the global centers of Shariah finance, that points out–in detail–Shariah-Compliant companies are in fact liable for zakat payments. Shariah-compliant companies, either fully owned by Muslims, or jointly owned by...

  • Officials from Egypt's Brotherhood at White House (Huge Story)

    White House officials held talks with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington this week, as the Islamist group threw itself into the fray in Egypt's presidential election. The meeting on Tuesday with low-level National Security Council staff was part of a series of US efforts to broaden engagement with new and emerging political parties following Egypt's revolution last year, a US official said. The White House pointed out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and other US lawmakers and officials had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months.

    In 1994, 85 innocent civilians were killed in a bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Hundreds more were wounded. To this day, that bombing is the worst terrorist attack ever to take place on the South American continent. The bombing is believed to have been a joint operation of Hezbollah and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Recently there has been a new development in the case.

    France and the United States have different notions of liberty, equality and fraternity, though the words look roughly the same in both languages. Methods of combating homegrown terrorism — another French word dating from 1789 — are also quite different, stemming from different histories, legal systems and conceptions of the state. The horrors in Toulouse — the murders of seven people in a bit more than a week by Mohammed Merah, a 23-year-old French citizen of Algerian-born parents who claimed membership in Al Qaeda — created a fierce debate in France about whether the police and security services failed to...

    A firm called Ethical Asset Management in the UK is launching a Sukuk fund for individual investors. This is fairly unremarkable, but the designation “ethical” is worth commenting on. Ethical is a subjective term. To most Westerners, there is little or nothing ethical about Shariah. On the contrary, many of the tenets of Shariah are decidedly barbaric and offensive to Western values, particularly values of freedom and liberty.

    At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center, and America woke up to the terror of jihad. I use the words “woke up” because jihad existed long before that terrible morning. And it continues to cause much of the world’s violence today. On 9/11, we were blindsided. But we never should have been. The word jihad literally means “struggle,” but it’s often used to communicate the concept of holy war. It is on the lips of violent terrorists, but it is also shouted by Egyptian mobs who assault Coptic...

    It is widely known that much of the funding for Jihadist terrorist organizations, such as Al Qaeda, Hamas, Abu Sayyef and Jemaah Islamiyah come from private donations to Islamic charities through zakat payments, a system of tithing in Islam. The Saudi government claims that they are virtually powerless to stop this activity, something that makes us incredulous, given the Shariah police state that is Saudi Arabia. But that is the whole point. Wealthy Saudis and their charities participate in zakat because Shariah commands it.

Soldiers responded with teargas and deployed the "Skunk" – a vehicle loaded with canons spraying a noxious-smelling liquid. A machine that transmits high frequency sound waves was also employed. Israel Radio reported several protesters were lightly injured in the clashes and taken to the hosptial. Hamas parliament member Ahmed Atoun was...

Led by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, all of France decried the massacre and announced its solidarity with the French Jewish community. World leaders condemned the crime.

    The Union des Organisations Islamiques de France (UOIF) has issued a condemnation of the shootings in France that echoes standard Global Muslim Brotherhood themes about terrorism.

The UOIF resubmits its condolences to the families of victims and reiterates its dismay at these abhorrent acts.

Their Sunni Islam is conventional and moderate, and spiritual Sufism is a powerful force among the believers. Since 2009, however, a serious effort has been visible in the Balkan republic to turn Kosovar Islam in the direction of Wahhabism, the ultrafundamentalist sect that inspires al Qaeda. The meddling is coming mainly from neighboring Macedonia, where Albanians and Muslims are recognized officially as minorities, and the Islamic clerical apparatus has come under Arab control. Kosovo defines itself constitutionally as a secular state,...
