Kuwait Islamic Bank Successfully Imposes Shariah in the USA


Here is an article from our friends over at ShariahFinanceWatch.org. It displays Muslims once again using our freedoms against us to advance Islam.

If we continue with the status quo we will end up just like the UK in regards to this issue. We need to end all Muslim immigration and officially ban Sharia Law. If any Muslim calls for it after the law is passed they should be arrested and deported if possible.

All pro-Sharia Muslims need to be looked upon as enemies of the state, just as Nazis were.


Kuwait Islamic Bank Successfully Imposes Shariah in the USA, Courtesy of UDR

Earlier today, we posted a link to an article which mentioned that Kuwait Islamic Bank had entered into a joint venture with Colorado-based real estate company UDR:

"Shariah Compliant Sovereign Wealth Funds Resume Investing in West"

We were curious as to what, if any, restrictions were to be imposed on the real estate properties in which Kuwait Islamic Bank invested here in the United States, so we made an inquiry via UDR’s “contact us” form on the company’s web site.

The company was quick to reply as, within minutes, we received a phone call from Dave Messenger, CFO of UDR.

I asked Mr. Messenger two questions:

1. What, if any, special restrictions or qualifications relating to Shariah were required in the deal with Kuwait Islamic Bank?

2. Are zakat payments to be made as part of this venture?

Mr. Messenger did not attempt to address question number 2, but referred me to Kuwait Finance House to get an answer to that question.

Mr. Messenger was also quite insistent that UDR’s agreement was in fact with Kuwait Finance House and not with Kuwait Islamic Bank. We regard this as a distinction without a difference, since Kuwait Finance House is an arm of Kuwait Islamic Bank. In all the media being devoted to this new deal, the entity identified is in fact Kuwait Islamic Bank.

Mr. Messenger was able to provide much more information in response to question number 1.

His answer was troubling, right from the outset.

First of all, he mispronounced “shariah.” Shariah is pronounced shu-ree-uh. Messenger pronounced it shu-rye-uh.

It does not inspire a great deal of confidence in terms of due diligence when the CFO of the American entity which entered into the agreement with an Islamic bank cannot even correctly pronounce the name of the underlying doctrine which governs their joint venture partner.

Messenger was not bashful at all about the issue of shariah-compliance.

He declared that the entire agreement was written to be shariah-compliant to make sure that the joint venture properties fit in with their partners’ religion.

When asked about specific provisions which he knew about to establish and maintain shariah compliance, Messenger named two: “cinematography and food served on the property.”

I asked what he meant by cinematography and he explained that some of their properties include movie theaters.

Evidently, Kuwait Finance House/Kuwait Islamic Bank wants to make sure that no offensive movies are shown on properties in which they invest.

In terms of “food served on property” Messenger explained that no pork would be served on the property at functions put on by UDR.

I asked him if any of the properties leased to sandwich shops or delis or such. He said that 8 of their 160 properties did have such tenants.

Again, evidently, those businesses would be prohibited from serving pork to prevent any conflict with shariah or the religion of UDR’s venture partners
.

Messenger explained that potential conflicts with shariah were addressed up front with the JV partners and would continue to be addressed up front to prevent conflicts.

What has clearly happened here is that Kuwait Islamic Bank has been able to impose shariah here in the United States by using its financial leverage over UDR.

This is the essence of Shariah-Compliant Finance.

Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr PETER WILLIAMS, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Him through this official email:- Williampeter199@gmail.com OR WARSUPP at +233264866768 or text : +1(503) 773-9864
