The British MPs have to move out of the Palace of Westminster while it undergoes repairs over the next decade but the building they will move into at the Department of Health is governed by Shariah law. Bars are banned and they won’t be allowed to drink.
The building was transferred to finance an Islamic bond scheme in 2014. George Osborne announced it would turn the UK into a “western hub of Islamic finance” and the “undisputed center of the global financial system.”
Three Government buildings in Whitehall were transferred to Islamic bonds, switching the ownership from British taxpayers to wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen and banks.
Under Islamic law, interest payments are prohibited so bond-buyers earn rental income from the three government offices. The Treasury agreed to make the offices fully compliant with Sharia law so investors wouldn’t be put off.
The bonds – known as Sukuk – are only available for purchase by Islamic investors. The money raised will be repayable from 2019.
One has to wonder if they were drunk when they made this deal.
This information comes via The Times. A Whitehall official told The Times that “It’s true. If MPs want to use Richmond House they’d better give up any hopes it will include a bar.”
It’s not about the bars, it’s about the principle. One has to wonder if the British people know this is going on.
Putting government buildings under Sharia law is a decidedly bad idea. There doesn’t seem to be any will to fight this in the west.
No wonder we won our independence from these people.
Oh, what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive…
Hillary’s really not very good at her main job; that of a professional liar.
Every time Hillary Clinton is asked by the media about her involvement in the Email Scandal, she continually states that she did not receive or send any information marked classified at the time.
When pressed on this, she comments that the information might have become classified at a later date, after it flowed through her non-secure server and into the hands of Putin, ISIS, Xi, Kim Jong-Un and the maniacal Mullahs of Teheran.
Anyone who knows anything about the storage and proper dissemination of classified information knows that this comment is an outright falsehood, or what they call in Texas a crock of s**t. Classified information is not an egg. It doesn’t sit unclassified under glass and an eighty watt bulb and eventually hatch to classified status one day.
Barack Obama is off to visit a mosque to celebrate Muslim contributions and religious freedom according to a White House official.
A White House official said Saturday that Mr. Obama will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque “to celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life.”
The Baltimore Sun wrote that President Barack Obama will visit a mosque in Baltimore County on Wednesday amid growing concern about hostility directed toward Muslim Americans. It will be Obama’s first visit to an American mosque as president.
He’s the one causing the hostility and divisiveness.
Michael Smith, a resident scholar at the society, applauded Obama’s decision to visit and said he hopes it will calm what he described as a measure of hysteria that has developed in some parts of the country. That fear, he believes, has been whipped up by the election.
“Hysteria is never good for unity of the country,” said Smith, who is also an imam at the Islamic Society of Annapolis. “This visit by the president will show how we need to, as Americans, join hands and come together more than ever. … Now is the time for unity.”
Hysteria? What hysteria? Concerns about terrorists pouring into our country because our president believes in open borders?
