Not all 'muslims'

in response to reader comment: Liar

'Islamic economics' is like 'Islamic' music and dogma; it is a myth based on deception. The notion that interest is forbidden is nonsense. Furthermore, 'interest' is simply replaced by a "Tax" which, reflecting no relation to demand, supply, or value, is arbitary and useless, except as a funding source for "Islamic " activities, which as experience has shown, tends to be anti-social behavior, ant least anti social to the larger society. So, yes, those who conduct business using an economic model which is unsustainable, detrimental to the established economic order, and whose finances are unaccountable , should not be conducting business. If this economic model is at all viable, why do we see such pathetic conditions of the people in those so called "Islamic" countries.
