I am not go going to write an article on this, which is essentially an idle thought that I had, and because I don’t know too much about the ins and outs of global finance and economy. I am going to, however, pose the question, is the perceived “war on Islam” actually a war on Islam’s position on economics? At the basic level, Islamic economics is interest-free and gold backed currency with an emphasis on social justice and distribution of wealth, the prevailing (western model) model is totally interest related with no substance, precious or otherwise, backing the currency and is, inherently, exploitative or amoral at best. Therefore, it seems that the Islamic model is a credible and viable alternative to the modern system and this is perhaps why the money men see Islam as a threat.
What do you think, I am not expert in these matters but would like to hear what others more familiar with finance and economics have to say about this?
