No more US hegemony, no more usury, banking is over!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Don't think gold is going to once again be used as money? Think again. It already is, in 22 countries.
From the first of September (98) a system of accounts 100% based on Dinars (gold) and Dirhams (silver) will be in operation. The new institution called Islamic Wakala or Islamic Agency is inspired on the traditional wakils or agents in Islam. Most Muslims traders in the days of the Islamic Dinar had their own agents in the key trading cities. They hold accounts, made payments, transfer money and merchandise under the instructions of the trader they represented. The Islamic Wakala therefore will be not a bank, but a means to make the Islamic Dinar function as a world currency. Unlike banks, our aim is to keep the gold in the pockets of the people, which is the safest place in the world. The Islamic Wakala will maintain in accounts only whatever is the minimum required to facilitate instant payments accross the world for those who need it. It will not intend to replace the use of the physical currency, but on the contrary it will encourage the use of the physical currency. No lending will be involved. No usury will ever again touch our Dinars and Dirhams. This is the end of the banking system.
The support is coming from everywhere. The Mufti of Egypt, one of the most reputable personalities of the Islamic world is now in favour of the Islamic Dinar. It follows a translation of an article from the Arabic Newpaper 'Al-Bayan' from Dubai (United Arab Emirates) about the Mufti and the gold and silver.
From Morocco to Indonesia, we are receiving more and more support from the Islamic authorities. One thing you have to bear in mind is that the Islamic Dinar is the end of Islamic Fundamentalism, that sickness that twisted the spirit and the law of Islam.
"In a talk which I was invited to give at this gathering there was a resounding acclamation for the choice of the Islamic Dinar over the US Dollar as the currency which the audience would choose for themselves. I finished my talk with the words, "Allah does not say in the Qur'an, 'US Dollar or Malaysian Ringgit'. Allah says, 'Dinar' and 'Dirham'. If we use the Islamic Dinar prosperity will come to us; if we accept the US Dollar misery will come to us. Let us say from Kelantan to the world "The Islamic Dinar is our currency. No more inflation. No more Soros." A flood of people came afterwards wanting to immediately take dinars and dirhams."

I dunno...I'll believe it when it has been in head to head competition with the Greenback for several decades.

Maybe there is some good in Islam, after all.
U.S. based secular equivalent system for payments
Convert US$, DM, Yen, Lira, Francs, SF, Pounds, etc., to gold, silver, platinum, or palladium and hold in account. Receive or make payment in currency or metal.

K Stevens, the more salient point being made here is that the US has exerted control and manipulation over too many for too long, and although the dinar may not necessarily make it over here, a statement is being made to the effect
"we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore"
What does that mean to you and me? A painful slide out of world dominance into financial oblivion will affect each and every one of us down to our very core. And you can take THAT to the bank.

Under Islamic law, the charging of interest is illegal, and I believe a capital offense!
So it goes without saying that the FED was NOT set up by Muslims. So much for our western bias against things foreign.
This message coming to you from a convinced Christian.
Heck, maybe we should let the Muslims overthrow the Evil Monster known as the FED. Then let THEM dispense THEIR laws and justice upon the perpetrators. I'd buy a front-row seat for that one.

POD... Under the Christion God's law, interest is also against the law, it was referred to as usury, and it was indeed forbidden. And only the deceived believe the law is no longer applicable.

--I love it! i think this paper work shuffling of theoretical "money", and the insane lobbyists and bankers laws they get pushed through have led to too many problems. I have never liked the something for nothing deal (our banking and stock market gambling), and certainly would prefer real money in coinage than this electronic crap we have now. come on y2k, let the NWO bilderburgers or whomever drown in a sea of fading electrons! ---of course, got no use for suicidal, fundamentalist extremists from the middle east who wish to remove heads for a living, either..... what's that saying, "even hitler loved his dogs"--guess there's good everywhere, just have to dig for it....
