Sharia law??? someone please educate my ignorance…
Its Islamofascist Camel jockey finance…………
Islamic/sharia banking brilliant Max the other two guests didn’t know whether to spit swallow or cough.
I Think it’s about not making a profit off loaning poor people money unless they start to make money , Not sure how it exactly applies to mortgage repayments It also applie to bank not investing in things that are considered immoral.
Looking forward to alex jones appearance does anyone know if Max has been on his show before and if so when I’d like todownload it if possible.

“Camel jockey” May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.
Sharia, the law of moses as interpreted by the prophet, and re-interpreted by everyone since….
http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/07182008/watch2.html <—- good vid with author William Greider, author of Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country
“WILLIAM GREIDER: Usury, to be clear about it, is rich people taking advantage of poor people by lending them money on terms that are sure to make them fail. All three of the great religions, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, had a moral prohibition against usury because they recognized that society can’t function like that. People of great wealth and their institutions like banks naturally have the power to overwhelm people of lesser means. And you can’t allow that in a decent society. It won’t survive. “
“Islamofascist Camel Jockey Finance” (ICJF):
Banks that subscribe to ICJF have been least affected by the economic crisis, because
1) this type of banking prohibits the acquisition of wealth via gambling (or alcohol, tobacco, pornography, stocks in armaments companies), and forbids the buying and selling of a debt as well as usury
2) these institutions deal in tangible assets and assume the risk
In short, Islamic banks protects individual wealth while capping selfishness and greed. The system reflects the best of capitalism while filtering out its negatives, and the best of socialism–filtering out its negatives also.
Good on you, Max, for being such a dreamer.
I passed a note along to the Obama team about the Islamic model when it was it its transition state. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll ever see anything like Shari’ah banking get traction here. Hell, Obama publicly brushed off the idea of temporary bank nationalization by saying that “we’re not like Sweden here in America; our cultures are different.” In other words, America must only construct policies that are consistent with cowboy crusading and crony capitalism.
You’re the one with the intellegence. The others are just talking like robotic sheep. It’s even hard fro me t olistne to their nonsense. They must be paid to spew this company line bull.
Kepp it up Max. I know it must be frsutrating to go up against this powerful group of evil in the banking corporate system.
Pweople are listening to you and your message is very valuable and long lasting. You are making a difference.
Always keep your own control over what you write in Huffingtopn post, don’t let editors edit your work towards their agenda. Don’t pull any punches !
my website is a work in progress. I like yours, by the way.
Sharia banking? That very good. I´m not a muslim but I support it.
With Usura, by Ezra Pound:
frustrated to see Max’s time being cut short by other idiotic speakers.Dont know if its a deliberate ploy by the news channels, but i always grumble over not getting to hear more of Max’s views on air. Wonder how Max feels about it?
Max you had them gob smacked, Sharia Law, brilliant. I’ve not see such dead air for quite a while. I think you wanted to push thier buttons with the full implications of Sharia law, cutting off the hands and heads of bankers etc. Unfortunately AlJazzera is getting on to you, they don’t let full the Max on without dilution. They give him a small amount of time and give air to others, no sparks no flames, darn.
Max, I thought they were just going to puke when you mentioned Sharia Banking. LOL. The change in the interview was palpable. Keep their feet to the fire.
Sharia banking is becoming more and more popular.
You do not pay interest and you are not paid interest.
Interest is considered a sort of crime or sin in Islam,
you know just like in Christianity. You pay fees of course.
Man, some of you guys are harsh! I thought that the other guests were fine. They obviously don’t contextualize the problem in the same way that Max does, but that doesn’t make them ignorant!
I agree Mep I think think it took them a couple of seconds to compute the token blue eyed white devil was talking so much sense.
Max has a greatway of winning other people around
usually….That’s All Y’all
We have another serious shooting incident unraveling in the US. Swat teams are responding to a shooting/hostage situation at a civic association building in Binghamton, NY. I wish these desperate souls could express their angst differently–don’t care if it means rioting outside a bank. The anger & fear is so misdirected. Are homicides, suicide-homicides, and shootings becoming more frequent anywhere else ? Or is it just us? It’s getting scary here. The people need relief.
Regulate the derivitaves market?
Of course they will. Its now done its job. It was left unregulated exactly because it would wreck the global economy. Now that this has been acheived they can bring it under the regulatory umbrella and make it seem that solutions to future crises have been found. But the next crisis wont involve derivitaves, just like the next big terrorist act wont involve planes and buildings.
Your job over the coming years Max is to look for the new loopholes that will fill the void left by derivitaves and it is there that you will likely find the next “crisis” nobody saw coming.
As for the G20 protests, what a sad state of affairs. It looked completely controlled and managed. Right down to the masked and hooded agents provocateurs. The protest spokes person on the news a couple of nights ago sounded like a Civil Servant reading off a prepared statement. Absolutely sickening.
Yes it all feels good when you get interest on you investment (or is it called savings!) under the illusion that the bank safely store you money in they’re vault. A wonderful thought isn’t it? Islamic banking under the sharia law system with no paid interest to you nor from you to the bank like Anna ^^ wrote is a very nice idea, I like it, and if they do use 100% reserve banking then it is a great system. The money seems to be as secure as if you were to put it in your own safe. I sure dont get the same feeling about my Norwegian banks.
That was a fast ball that tailed off just before it got to the plate, man did the other guests fumble..Nice job Max.
The term means “way” or “path to the water source”; it is the legal framework within which the public and private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islamic principles of jurisprudence and for Muslims living outside the domain. Sharia deals with many aspects of day-to-day life, including politics, economics, banking, business, contracts, family, sexuality, hygiene, and social issues.
Before the 19th century, legal theory was considered the domain of the traditional legal schools of thought. Most Sunni Muslims follow Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki or Shafii, while most Shia Muslims, the Twelvers, follow the Jaafari school of thought.
Islamic law is now the most widely used religious law, and one of the three most common legal systems of the world alongside common law and civil law. During the Islamic Golden Age, classical Islamic law may have influenced the development of common law, and also influenced the development of several civil law institutions.
Ahh what happened to intensedebate?
Anyhow it is interesting to watch as the control-freaks try to control the uncontrollable. What do I mean? Well it is becoming clear to me the issue here is not so much Savers vs Spenders as it is about those who want control and those who are trying to stay one step ahead of it.
The entire Derivatives deal is amazing. The way the Controllers report it, you would think all of it was like a craps game. The numbers maybe big, but have we not had such things since caveman? I think the issue is not derivatives, it is the fact the Controllers had little control of it. I see the same thing going on with with this Tax Haven buzz. Even the Dollar crisis is about control, or should I say their lack of control of the Dollar. The control freaks hate the fact the Dollar is king and used to buy oil, they hate it.
max’s other visits to alex jones show
write both their names on google video or go to
can’t figure out of this one is on youtube
it’s great, on google video
Alex Jones Max Keiser Oct 1 2008 bailout scam explained
“I agree Mep I think think it took them a couple of seconds to compute the token blue eyed white devil was talking so much sense”
That’s the funniest thing i’ve read in a while.
As for Alex Jones, he can be a bit of a nut. The way he treated Peter Joseph showed his true colours, even if you disagree with his views. Please talk some Max Keiser sense into that man.
Well. You had the presenter dumbfounded 🙂 It seems that he didn’t want to talk about “Shariah law.”
However, I was not that surprised because almost all of what I read and hear on the MaxKeiser.com website regarding finance is compatible with Islamic law.
Islam produced one of the greatest world civilizations and had great contributions in the field of finance and can help provide solutions to our current financial problems, as Max is suggesting.
In this context, it is important to note that the word “check” comes from the Arabic word “sakk.” Checks were part of a sophisticated banking system developed by the Abbasids in Baghdad (yes, the same Baghdad we hear about in the news) more than a 1,000 years ago. In addition to checks, that banking system introduced many financial innovations that facilitated international trade over vast geographic areas.
For those who got their information about “Shariah law” from the main stream media, please do yourself a favor and read more about it from objective sources. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Islamofascist? is that like CommieCapitalist model or more to do the socialist conservatives?
First of all, the right terminology would be Islamic banking rather then shariah banking/laws.
It was refreshing to know that there are some healthy minds in west who see the good face of Islam, the benefits it could bring to all human collectively, Muslims & Non-Muslims. Maybe this global economic crisis will motivate many people to look at the bright side of Islam.
Though Islam & Islamic banking has the potential to solve most of the current problem, the common man need to be shown how this can be done. There are many talk shows pointing/blaming the wrongs in the present form of banking & not enough that show how a alternative banking system can over rid those mistakes.
Why don’t you make a documentary on Islamic banking, on how it integrates the best of the ideologies, of capitalism & socialism, how it could solve the present crisis & how it avoids them, how it protects greed from hijacking the system, how it frees humanity from the clucks of few greedy people..etc
It will be a great service to all of us….
US soldiers dying to defend Sharia law! US approved Iraq constitution enshrines Sharia law.
Heads up Grunts, not only can US solders lose their lives on the battle field but they can lose their heads under Sharia law.
