UK: Muslim police "blocking crackdown on honor killings"

"Asian," of course, is British PC-speak for Muslim.

"Asian PCs 'blocking crackdown on honour killings,'" by Miles Goslett and Daniel Boffey for the Daily Mail (thanks to Jerusalem Posts):

Some Asians in the police and in Government jobs have been accused of blocking the crackdown against so-called honour killings.

It is alleged they are not only failing to help desperate women trying to flee abuse and arranged marriages but are actively encouraging punishment for those they believe are breaking traditional taboos.


Beyond terrorism: toward sustainable security

The nature and scale of the security threats facing the world make a radical shift of thinking about global security essential, says Chris Abbott.

The sight of planes flying into the Twin Towers in New York on 11 September 2001 has become an iconic image of our times. Forever burned into the public consciousness, it seems to have affected many world leaders in a profound way: they are now convinced that international terrorism, particularly international Islamic terrorism, is the greatest threat to world security.

However, is international terrorism really the overwhelming threat it is made out to be? If not, how can the "war on terror" possibly help us deal with the real threats we face? These questions are extremely important in today's global security environment. Governments only have finite resources, and must deploy those resources in ways that best ensure their citizens' security. To do this though, they need to properly understand the nature and extent of the various threats to that security and, importantly, respond effectively.


Islamist School Wins DOE Excellence Award

Sheik Yusuf al Qaradawi had a vision of America’s future: “...Some countries will fall to the armed Islamic jihad, but in others, such as the United States, victory will come through Da’wa - the teaching of Islam to non-Muslims - which will trigger Westerners to convert to Islam ‘in droves.’ We will conquer America not by the sword but by Da’wa.” The New Horizons Islamic School in Pasadena, CA was the recipient of the U.S. Department of Education’s “Blue Ribbon for Excellence” award. Qaradawi is a terrorist banned in the U.S. and U.K.. America is helping him achieve his dream.

Jihad through Da’wa [conversion of non-Muslims] in the form of domestic Islamic education has gotten a boost from an unlikely source, the U.S. government.

The administration has just presented the New Horizons Islamic School in Pasadena, California the United States Department of Education’s “Blue Ribbon for Excellence” award.

This first ever award to a Muslim school appears to validate the predictions which cleric Yusuf Qaradawi made a decade ago, at a Muslim Youth conference in Ohio.


Understanding and Supporting Islamic Finance: Product Differentiation and International Standards

The following is a 2004 speech given by John B. Taylor, the Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs, as the keynote address at the Forum on Islamic Finance. It is essentially a US TSY endorsement of Shariah Finance with out any deep understanding of Shariah Law and its connection to Jihad. This forum took place at Harvard… therefore everyone assumes it is scholarly and legitimate. Here again we see the disconnect between Shariah Finance’s investments not engaging in gambling, pork or alcohol and Shariah Law’s human rights violations.

I thank the Islamic Finance Project for inviting me and for, once again, leading efforts to organize this excellent conference. I would also extend a warm welcome to all of you here. I know you will enjoy hearing from my esteemed colleague, Dr. Ahmad Mohamed Ali from the Islamic Development Bank. Harvard University continues its fine tradition of providing a strong platform to generate critical thinking to inform academics and policymakers on Islamic finance through its series of Islamic Finance Forums and through the Islamic Finance Project here at Harvard Law School.

I appreciate the opportunity to speak to you today on a topic that is very important to us in the Bush Administration, and, in particular, the U.S. Treasury. Islamic finance over the last several years has expanded throughout the world, not just in the Middle East, but in Asia, Europe and the United States. The global Islamic finance industry has grown significantly over the last 10 years and today assets are in the range of $200-$300 billion.


Understanding the Complexities and Contradictions of the Middle East

Written in 2001, this article best describes why the US Government continues to engage with countries who operate under the totalitarian system of Shariah Law... OIL. This would also explain why America's SEC & TSY have done poor due diligence on Islamic Finance and continue to give it a green light. Take a look at this letter from the SEC Chairman Chris Cox to Senator Jon Kyl.

In a recent article titled "MISSING THE OIL STORY" Nina Burleigh who has written for The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and New York magazine tried to explore the connection between the latest US military intervention in Afghanistan with unexploited energy reserves in the region. For instance, she pointed to studies that suggest that by 2050, Central Asia will account for more than 80 percent of our oil. She cited a September 10 report in the Oil and Gas Journal, which reported that Central Asia represents one of the world's last great frontiers for geological survey and analysis, "offering opportunities for investment in the discovery, production, transportation, and refining of enormous quantities of oil and gas resources."

She also suggested that there was lots of oil beneath the turf of the US's "politically precarious newest best friend, Pakistan". According to an Agence France Presse report released just days before September 11, "Massive untapped gas reserves are believed to be lying beneath Pakistan's remotest deserts, but they are being held hostage by armed tribal groups demanding a better deal from the central government."

In an earlier article, Steve Niva (Evergreen State College, Washington) had pointed to how US foreign policy in the Middle East had been driven by it's "interests" in backing and influencing regimes who controlled the massive oil resources of the region. That oil has been a major factor in the politics of the Middle East has been brought out by numerous analysts and scholars of the region.
