This is the continuation of the Exclusive Q&A With the President of a Michigan Sharia Bank Part I story. In part I the president of the bank tells me that I am illogical not to want Sharia law here. Now when I explain to him that I know what Sharia law is he backtracks.
Here is where we left off in part I.
Here is my return email to the University Bank President Mr. Ranzini.
Thanks for responding.
Saying that I do not want the barbaric Sharia law in Western culture is very logical. Our country is not about a set of laws that treats one religion better than the other. Christians and Jews are not looking to impose a set of barbaric laws on the world, Muslims are and you are helping them. It is no coincidence that you implemented sharia banking and also banned the Christmas party and alcohol. It is obviously not because that you had some sudden pity for alcoholics. You are clearly more concerned with your Islamic customers over anyone else. You catering to Islamic banking needs is clearly promoting a religion and all of those food choices that you mentioned are for nationalities and not an ideology which calls for world domination. So your comparison is invalid.
Are you a Muslim and would you like to defend this on talk radio tonight?
Mr.Ranzini was kind enough to respond, but look how he ducks that he has gone beyond sharia banking and has catered to Muslims by banning the annual Christmas party and banning alcohol at after work gatherings. Mr. Ranzini has shown he is a Christian who is clearly more concerned with the beliefs of Muslims over anyone else. He will make an obident dhimmi.
Here is his response.
Dear Mr. Logan:
I’m a Catholic!
I agree with you that our laws in the U.S. should not treat one religion better than any other. Private individuals can enter into contracts as they see fit and are free to do so. How contracts are drawn up is left to the individuals to decide. I can wrote “I O U $1,000” on a piece of paper and sign it and that’s a contract. I can also go to Citibank and get a 100 page commercial real estate loan agreement. Maybe other options in between exist. If the Jewish only bank in NYC or the Christian only bank in Minnesota (they both exist) offer loan contracts drawn up under certain principles to meet the religious needs of their consumers, good for them, I don’t care. At the end of the day, if the legal contracts are violated by one party or another a U.S. court of law, using U.S. Law will interpret the contracts and decide what to do. The U.S. courts will not consider Sharia (Sharia isn’t even mention in our legal contracts with our customers, nor is any religion referenced).
Having a new born baby at home, my desire to work at night is low at the moment. Just curious, your suggestion about the talk show makes me ask, do you work for or with a talk radio show?
In the upcoming part III I mentioned the lawsuit filed against the US government for bailing out AIG, which also is promoting sharia banking. The lawsuit was filed because our government is not supposed to be promoting any religion. In the email Mr.Ranzini tries to marginalize the lawsuit, because the lawyer is a Jew.
