Seattle Mayor Edward B. Murray has introduced a plan to provide affordable housing in a city that is home to much of the high-tech industry’s wealthiest individuals and businesses. Overshadowing the irony of this scheme is this part of the plan:
Support the Community in Finding Housing Tools
for Sharia-Compliant Lending: For our low – and moderate – income Muslim neighbors who follow Sharia law – which prohibits the payment of interest or fees for loans of money – there are limited options for financing a home. Some Muslims are unable to use conventional mortgage products due to religious convictions. The City will convene lenders, housing nonprofits and community leaders to explore the best options for increasing access to Sharia-compliant loan products to help these residents become homeowners in Seattle.
In other words, Murray is inviting in a foreign legal system for a separate class of individuals to follow, in contravention to Article 6 of the US Constitution. Moreover, because that legal system is based on a religious doctrine, it very likely also violates the establishment clause of the US Constitution for government to be promoting it.
It should also be pointed out that Shariah is the enemy threat doctrine and Shariah specifically states that it is unlawful under Shariah to only comply with parts of Shariah, while ignoring others. What Murray is doing is very nearly treasonous.
Clearly he is ignorant of Shariah…at least we HOPE that is the best case scenario…
