in response to reader comment: I agree it is genuinely dangerous even if vacuous

It is genuinely dangerous because you are mixing bad money with good money. The western banks which do 'Islamic finance' will pass on the ineffciencies of Islamic finance on other depositors and shareholders. As usual, anything Islamic can only survive as a parasite if mixed up with good financial practices whose source is outside Islam.
