Event Description

Another MUST SEE Presentation!!  Open to the adult public. 

Join the West Oakland TEA Party on August 24th at Bakers of Milford. Bring your family, friends and neighbors.

This meeting will be featuring guest speaker Richard Thompson from the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor. Mr. Thompson will be discussing how our President and government has been supporting Sharia indoctrination in the U.S. using over a hundred and fifty million tax payer dollars. The law center is doing everything it can to stop Islamic religious law from gaining a foothold in America. Come find out what Sharia law is and the impact it is having on our country.

 Thompson’s presentation will be as shocking as Dr. Janda’s eye opener on Obamacare last Fall.

Religion aside, this is not only a look at Sharia Law but also a look at the impact on our financial institutions and the long term implications.

 

Conservative author Dick Morris says airplanes may have taken down the Twin Towers, but he predicts Shariah-compliant investing of billions in Western financial markets has the potential to “hijack our institutions, our social policies and ultimately our values in the name of Islamic rule.”

Huge oil profits and unease with their own Middle Eastern financial institutions brought Islamic investors to Wall Street in the 1990s in search of special funds that would meet Shariah restrictions. But it was complicated turf for bankers who knew investing but not Shariah.

Enter Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Usmani, a former Pakistani Shariah Appellate Court justice, hired by Dow Jones in 1999 to help establish a process that could attract trillions of investment dollars, generating handsome commissions and agency earnings.

In just a decade, most major U.S. and European investment firms have retained Shariah advisors and paid them millions. Those advisors assure Muslim investors their gains are not connected to interest charges, pork farming, alcohol, pornography or Western defense industries—all activities prohibited by Shariah.

But are those adviser fees—paid to highly placed Muslims—or the billions of dollars in “donations” financial institutions must contribute to specified Islamic “charities” in exchange for an investment’s Shariah stamp of approval actually bankrolling deadly extremist activities? Morris followed the money in his 2009 book “Catastrophe,” reporting that the U.S. government shut down at least three of the largest charities for financing terrorism.

n a 2008 article titled “Jihad Comes to Wall Street,” Alex Alexiev, vice president for research at the Center for Security Policy, called Shariah-compliant investing “an essential part of radical Islam’s efforts to insinuate itself into Western societies in order to destroy them from within.”

It’s also been a bumpy road for some of those hired consultants. Dow Jones severed ties with Usmani after the Center for Security Policy detailed some of Usmani’s writings, including one that urged Muslims living in the West to “conduct violent Jihad against the infidels at every opportunity.”

The CSP identified another paid Shariah investment advisor, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to Morris, Shariah-compliant funds must donate a small percentage of annual earnings to Islamic charities designated by the advisory boards. Those amounts are not inconsequential. For example, a typical 2.5 percent contribution can amount to billions of dollars.

And if a Shariah-compliant fund is found to have earnings from an outlawed investment activity, the advisors can “purify” those gains by donating more to the approved charities. Morris calls some of the charities “thinly veiled fronts for terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.”

Is the lure of trillions of dollars from Muslim portfolios strong enough to open civil law to expanding Shariah influences?

The reason for this meeting is to introduce people to the facts of Sharia law, pure and simple. It has nothing to do with anyone's race. It has nothing to do with anyone's religion. It has to do with laws. The fact is, certain groups of people want to introduce and implement Saria law in this country. People need to learn what Sharia law is all about on order to make informed decisions as to whether these laws should be implemented or not.  It is my right as a Roman Catholic Libertarian American to educate myself about things that affect me and my family.  Don.

It is hard to comprehend how someone can take offense to a subject and speaker without first hearing the information presented. Sharia Law is in the news and Americans know very little about the subject. This is not a race or religious subject for us as Americans. It is about our legal system and our constitution. The speaker is simply providing educational information on a topic

. The recepients of that information can decide for themselves whether the information is relevant or meaningless.

this type of blatant race- and ethno- baiting offends me more than I can put words to.  The fact that someone from a purportedly "Christian" legal group (the "Thomas More Law Center" purports to be more Christian than you, just ask them) is spewing this ignorance does not make it less ignorant.  Such intolerance is anathema to everything that I, as a Roman Catholic and a Libertarian, call sacred to my beliefs.
