UPDATE on Mayor Dhimmi* Bloomberg’s sell-out to Shari’a Finance

To you and me, the brutal Islamic law of Shari’a is a nightmare; to America’s elites, it’s a cutting-edge growth industry.  At the apex stands Mayor Michael Dhimmi* Bloomberg, the adenoidal Napoleon of New York, whose monumental betrayals are practically a work of art.

*Dhimmi: .The word “dhimmitude” comes from dhimmi, an Arabic word meaning “protected” and is the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination. Islamic conquests expanded over vast territories in Africa, Europe and Asia, for over a millennium (638-1683)

American Thinker(H/T Bob C) -In case you were wondering why Mayor Bloomberg refused to meet with 9/11 families protesting the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, and why he reviled them and other patriotic opponents as “un-American,” the mystery is now officially solved: money. Bloomberg, the richest man in New York, has brilliantly maneuvered his position as public guardian of Ground Zero into a priceless asset for his personal fortune.

Here’s the sick news, folks, about the mother of all conflicts of interest.

Bloomberg launches Islamic Finance Platform:
Bloomberg Professional® service executives have announced the launch of a Bloomberg Islamic Finance Platform (ISLM), a solution for Shariah-compliant products and services…  The Islamic marketplace is growing rapidly and there is high demand for a wide range of resources,” Dan Doctoroff, President of Bloomberg L.P, said from Kuala Lumpur. “Bloomberg is delighted to increase its commitment to serve this dynamic market….”The new Bloomberg ISLM platform has resources for investing in fixed income, equities and money markets that comply with Shariah…”.
Well, you get the picture. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it? Bloomberg, the famous cold fish, shedding hot tears for “religious freedom” in front of the Statue of Liberty, surrounded by a pride of brain-dead rabbis — ah, what a lovely photo op it made. Bloomberg’s tears were real, all right. He was weeping at the thought that patriotic Americans might derail his ability to close the deal on his beloved Sharia platform.
Recall, if your stomach can bear it, how Imam Rauf, the project’s so-called “spiritual leader,” let slip that he would use the 15-story, $100 million Ground Zero Victory Mosque to house his lifelong dream — the Shariah Index Project. There, every morning, after the Muslim call to prayer finished echoing across the 9/11 killing field, Rauf planned to calibrate the state of Sharia compliance around the globe, and diligently labor to spread it.
And how delightfully easier his task of spreading Sharia will be, thanks to Bloomberg’s Islamic Finance Platform! After all, the whole point of the $1 trillion market of “Sharia-compliant products and services” is to maximize compliance with Sharia — and not just on money matters.
To understand Sharia Finance’s true nature, consider that Iran is its market leader, and was the first country to adopt Sharia Finance as its financial system, back in 1978-1983 when the Ayatollah Khomeini took over.  Khomeini eradicated all secular law and replaced it with Sharia law, including the banking system.  Khomeini’s prize creation, the Sharia police, continue to enforce Sharia in the banks and on the streets, where women are savagely beaten for showing a strand of hair and 14-year-old gays are publicly hanged.
I find it fascinating that Bloomberg’s official announcement makes no attempt to disguise Sharia-Compliant Finance as “green” or “ethical”, which is the current fashionable pretense of Sharia-pushing financial institutions like Citibank, Goldman Sachs and General Electric. No, Bloomberg’s announcement is all about the power of his proprietary tools to speed up the harried investors’ search for “fatwa endorsements,” and “transparency into more than 250 Sharia scholars,” so they can get on with making obscene piles of Sharia-backed money.
In case you’re wondering about the tilt of these “Sharia scholars,” look no further than Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood honcho dubbed “the theologian of terror” by the ADL, who just showed up in Tahrir Square, calling for “the reconquest of Jerusalem.” Qaradawi is the big expert on Shariah Financ, which he cheerfully calls “jihad with money.”
Now, you and I remember that 9/11 took place on the day of the mayoral primary, an election Bloomberg eventually won.  We remember that he began his term in office by attending countless funerals and memorial services for New York’s heroes, and we still get choked up thinking about the sacrifice they made. But let’s give credit where it’s due: Bloomberg is a canny calculator. Maybe he’d already figured out back in 2001, while we were still wrapping ourselves in flags and weeping over God Bless America, that the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 would be presided over by some guy named Hussein, who bowed to the Saudi king — so why not go for the main chance?
