Jihad Watch! BHO appoints Sharia finance specialist as WH fellow

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:

The Obama administration has announced its appointment of 13 White House fellows - and the first person featured on its short list is a Muslim attorney who specializes in Shariah-compliant transactions....

Samar Ali of Waverly, Tenn., is the first name appearing on the White House list. She is an associate with the law firm Hogan Lovells - a firm that claims to have advised on more than 200 Islamic finance transactions with an aggregate deal value in excess of $40 billion.

Well, why should we worry about the fact that a Muslim lawyer is now on the inside promoting Shariah finance? Briefly, this form of finance is just another evasive and sophisticated missionary sham. Consider the following:

Ali was listed as a member of the British delegation to the World Islamic Economic Forum in 2009 and as a U.S. delegate in 2010.

Shariah Finance Watch blog noted, "[I]t was at the World Islamic Economic Forum where key leaders declared Shariah finance to be "dawa" (missionary) activity to promote Islam and Shariah."

Yes – but is it jihad? The article continues:

[Vice President Christopher Holton of the Center for Security Policy] referred to Islamic finance, or "Shariah-Compliant Finance", as a "modern-day Trojan horse" infiltrating the U.S. He said it poses a threat to the U.S. because it seeks to legitimize Shariah - a man-made medieval doctrine that regulates every aspect of life for Muslims - and could ultimately change American life and laws....

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!
