"Those who swallow down usury cannot arise except as one whom Satan has prostrated by his touch does rise. That is because they say, trading is only like usury; and Allah has allowed trading and forbidden usury. To whomsoever then the admonition has come from his Lord, then he desists, he shall have what is already passed, and his affairs are in the hands of Allah; and whoever returns to it - these are the inmates of the fire; they shall abide in it..."
From the Qur'an, Surah Al-Baqarah

    It is never discussed in the media that the Arab countries still use gold as their currency. In the war against Islamic countries, the Western and Communist countries print up the money with which they pay for war. What if the real reason for warring with the nations who still use the dinar is to force central banking upon these countries, effectively stealing the nations' gold in the process -- that is what happened to the West, including the USA.

    Usury is illegal in Muslim countries, and the West absolutely depend on usury for power. Because the US has totally succumbed to this monetary order, we cannot trade without it. In the battle for the world, those still using gold as their currency will forever be the enemy of the bankers that hold the debts of the world in their hands. The Arabs very well know this, and for them the fight is honorable.

    A long winded quote trying to draw water from another mans well, of whom he envies.

    Christian American, this is not a religious quote but a 'usury' quote. Also we sent 3 Bible quotes yesterday condemning usury, not sure why you missed them. I invite you to consider how usury came to be known as an evil in these ancient cultures/religions. Thanks for the laugh about our "PC leaning." :-)

    a good start on usury from a religious perspective. A natural law perspective is more accurate.
