When is the Embassy seminar on Jewish entrepreneurs and business in Ireland? When is the Embassy seminar on Christian entrepreneurs and business in Ireland? When is the Embassy seminar on Hindu entrepreneurs and business in Ireland? When is the Embassy seminar on Buddhist entrepreneurs and business in Ireland?
There would seem to be a Constitutional issue involved here — isn’t the U.S. Government involving itself in promoting a religion via such a seminar? And what a surprise that that religion would turn out to be Islam. “U.S. Embassy sponsors Irish Muslim business conference: Imam calls for Sharia Law in all business dealings,” by Patrick Cooper for IrishCentral.com, October 7 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
The U.S. Embassy in Dublin has sponsored a seminar on Muslim entrepreneurs and business in Ireland. A main point of the conference was the need for Sharia law compliant financial products to be used.
The U.S. Embassy supported the conference as part of President Obama’s outreach to Muslims around the world.
Ambassador Dan Rooney congratulated the organizers on Wednesday and said that the U.S was “solid partners” in the venture. He gave a copy of President Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope ” to Imam Hussein Halawa, of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland, who opened the event.
At the conference, Thomas Cooney, academic director of the Dublin Institute of Technology, stated that 76 per cent of Muslim business people in Ireland say securing finance is their biggest problem and 90 per cent said there is a need for financial products to be compliant with Islamic law.
There are 45,000 Muslims in Ireland and Islam is the third largest religion reported on census forms.
Imam Hussein Halawa said the Muslim culture was deeply dependent on ethics in business and that the paying or charging of interest on loans was forbidden.
“The Islamic objective is to avoid all transactions leading to disharmony among people,” he said….
The dhimmis will experience plenty of harmony as long as they submit.
