What is often called “the clash of civilizations” is really a clash of banking systems. We are told we are fighting a war on terror to make the safe for “democracy” but to my mind (and to our Founding Fathers) democracy is the problem because it is a fraud. Democracy is what the oligarchy hides behind and what gives them power and false authority. I see this push for “democracy” as just a code word for tyranny. The oligarchy wants to make the world safe for fractional reserve banking and compound interest.
One of the many things that the Bible and the Quran have in common is the strong prohibition against usury. Islamic banks, which avoided much of the damage from the subprime mortgage crisis by following strict principles laid out in their Holy Book, while disregard our own. Interest payments, short selling and contracts considered excessively risky are prohibited in these nations. That ruled out many of the products that got Western finance into so much trouble such as collateralized debt obligations or credit default swaps.
The Bible prohibits usury (over 43 times) but Western nations have long sense abandoned that moral principal (as have most Bible believers). However, Islamic bankers follow that prohibition much more faithfully than anyone in the West. Indeed, we could say the reverse is true. West bankers have made themselves “lords of the earth” with a combination of usury and legalized state-sanctioned counterfeiting. They attack anyone who represents any threat ot their enslavement of others, whether it is the Islamic system of lending or the re-introduction of fixed worth monetary systems (such as the Libyan gold dinar). Personally, I have no doubt that Moammar Gadhafi was targeted by NATO because of his plans to introduce a gold dinar – a single African currency made from gold, which would a have been a true sharing and storing of the wealth.
“If Gaddafi had an intent to try to re-price his oil or whatever else the country was selling on the global market and accept something else as a currency or maybe launch a gold dinar currency, any move such as that would certainly not be welcomed by the power elite today, who are responsible for controlling the world’s central banks,” Anthony Wile, founder and Chief Editor of the Daily Bell told Russia Today in an interview back in May 2011. “So yes, that would certainly be something that would cause his immediate dismissal and the need for other reasons to be brought forward from moving him from power.”
Note: I dislike fundamentalist Muslims as much as fundamentalists of any religion. And rather than being an issue of superiority of the Muslim faith, I am merely pointing out that the Judeo-Christian traditions which once guided our nations have been forgotten, we are losing our way, and religious leaders are distorting teaching of the book they call the Truth. Banking isn’t the only area in which Western nations have lost their ethical foundation. Torturing innocent people and launching wars based on lies are also contrary to the teachings of the Bible, but that is the subject of another post.
