Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: The Netherlands Want to Become Centre of Sharia Banking

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Jan 25, 2010 at 20:50

Mr Soetero writes re Sharia banking - and the fact that some bankers are setting up financial vehicles to capture tan inrod into the Eurabian financial market. M.Soetero should realise that banks are motivated for profit - not ideologies. It is completely false to think that because a bank acts in a certain way - that it must be following sound moral principles. Banks would sell to both sides in a war of they were allowed to. They do what they can get away with.

".........On the other side The Government of Netherlands want to Become Centre of Sharia Banking as we can follow in the link:"

Rather than wax lyrical about the wonders of 'sharia banking' - it would do Mr. Soetero more good to actually understand it.

"Sharia Banking is an obscene attempt to fleece an already marginalized Muslim community while promising them the exact opposite. On the one hand Imams are warning Muslims of hellfire if they deal with the existing banking systems, and on the other the same clerics are being paid by banks to herd Muslims towards a system that is based on lies and deception.
