islamists just dont get it

Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: Islamic Finance assures Economic Vibrancy of ALL

Dear Dr Pipes, Your reader Mufaddal Mirza from UAE wrote a difficult-to-understand message praising Islamic Finances. Islamists just dont get it. If there is something verifiably good in Islamic finance, it can be accepted by all without any need to call it Islamic. And if there is something bad in there, it is only good that we criticize it without condemning Islam. There is no need to amalgamate finances with religion. I Muhammad's time there were no calls or puts or bonds or junk bonds, or hedge funds or M&As. Islamic finances cannot opine about any of these without making interpretive judgments. So it is best to keep the religion out of finance.

I also wonder if there is something like Islamic Quantum Physics and is it any better than normal quantum physics.

Islamists make the mistake of dabbling in all self-aggrandizing egoistic things and stay miles away from spirituality. Or so it seems.
