Since so many stupid people believe "capitalistic greed" (not the greed of unqualified would-be homeowners, perish forbid) caused the current financial crisis, it is, alas, not unreasonable to assume that there will be many equally stupid people who will believe the theocratic totalitarian poison of Sharia finance can be part of the cure.

The frog shifts uneasily in his pot of water as the heat is turned up another notch, but soon becomes used to it and dozses off again...

shariah finance would be a joke except for the chance of geo location of dead dinsaurs

Our current economic crisis: Could it be part of a terror attack on U.S. financials?

I hate this kind of wording..."According to one well-known economist"

WHO? Define "well known".

Having been on arab forums since 2001 I have an innate contempt for conspiracy theories.

This is something which should be analyzed but viewed skeptically.

The timing is more likely not related to 9/11 but to the chronological dates of Fannie/Freddie death, something enroute since at least 2005 if not much much earlier (Clinton)

This doesn't surprise me. I would expect them to basically use any incident of failure, no matter how minor, to claim that their system is better.

No doubt, many Moslems see our present financial crisis as proof of the will of Allah that Moslems are following the right path with their various jihadomanias.
