Jihad Watch, as usual, alerts us that the stealth jihad advances apace. "White House welcomes Shariah finance specialist: Obama selects Muslim expert in Islamic transactions as fellow," by Chelsea Schilling for WorldNetDaily:

Please read the rest of this long article for fuller understanding of what this means. We now have a least one Obama protege in the White House promoting financial jihad. That’s revolting!
