Islamic Economics and The Final Jihad

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Submitted by David J. Jonsson (United States), Sep 26, 2007 at 14:23

As Daniel Pipes has mentioned, Timur Kuran has contributed extensively to our understanding of Islamic Economics and Finance. I would like to suggest that readers also read recent articles by David J. Jonsson: Islamic Economics and Shariah Law: A Plan for World Domination where I comment:

It should be realized that the goal of the Islamists, following in the footsteps of Muhammad, is not so much to conquer the land but to Islmanize the populations. In so doing they seek to have the lands come under Shariah law and that the lands become dar al-Islam—the land of Islam and that all non-Muslims accept the status of Dhimmis—subservient to Muslim rule. The Plan involves the incremental acceptance of basic tenants of Shariah law as applied to all aspects of life—the Islamic "Way of Life".

In the article: Sovereign Wealth Funds – a Potential Tool of Asymmetric Warfare I comment:

Liberal democracy, led by the United States may have emerged triumphant from the struggles of the 20th century. But the rise of the non-democratic powers of Russia, China and the Islamist states utilizing the combined power of control of energy resources and the growth of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF) leaves the liberal democracy's ultimate victory and future dominance in doubt. Overseas investments by Sovereign Wealth Funds have always had the potential to cause alarm in the destination countries. Because they are driven by governments of the totalitarian and Authoritarian Great Powers, they compel countries to take immediate attention.
