I was angered over the multiple reports that have been documented since AIG (American International Group, Inc.) received their first bailout from the government. These were reports of lavish parties in swanky hotels. But this lawsuit that a former Marine, Kevin J. Murray, has filed against U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr. and the Federal Reserve Board takes the cake. The lawsuit is meant to stop all bailout funds from going to AIG. The lawsuit claims that the U.S. government is violating the Constitution by promoting and financing terrorists’ activities against America using American tax dollars through its ownership of AIG.
According to the lawsuit, AIG is promoting Shariah-compliant businesses and insurance products. In order for a business to be Shariah-compliant it must comply with the 1200 year old body of Islamic cannon law based on the Quran. Some parts of that law demand the conversion, subjugation, or destruction of the infidels which includes Jews, Christians and America in general. AIG employs a three-person Shariah Advisory Board to help it make sure that businesses are compliant and this is done with the aid of federal tax dollars. Members for this advisory board come from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Pakistan. According to AIG, the role of its Shariah authority “is to review [its] operations, supervise its development of Islamic products, and determine Shariah compliance of these products and [its] investments.” Uh huh…
One of the advisory board members comes from Pakistan and his name is Dr. Muhammed Imran Ashraf Usmani. Dr. Usmani is the son and disciple of Sheik Mufti Taqi Usmani who is considered the leading authority on Shariah financing and authored a book in 1999 that dedicated an entire chapter on reasons why a Western Muslim must engage in violent jihad against his own country. This in spite of the fact that Muslims are given equality and freedom to proselytize and practice Islam here in America.
Kevin Murray, the Marine who filed the lawsuit, served two tours of duty in Iraq. The lawsuit was filed in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. The Thomas More Law Center is representing Murray along with David Yerushalmi who is an attorney that specializes in litigation and is an expert on Shariah law and Shariah compliant financing. Mr. Yerushalmi serves as general counsel to the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. as well.
Our Constitution has an Establishment Clause that is part of the First Amendment. That clause states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”. The lawsuit claims that AIG by using taxpayer funds that the Secretary of Treasury handed over to them violates this clause by promoting, endorsing and funding Shariah-based Islamic religious practices. I didn’t mention the FED because they are actually not a part of the government – another Constitutional violation.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, said, “This lawsuit not only raises significant constitutional issues, it also shines a light on serious national security issues that our own government has created by direct financial support and ownership of a business that supports anti-American, radical Islamic activities. Make no mistake, there is an internal cultural jihad underway against our great nation, and I fear that many of our political leaders are unwittingly complicit in it.”
How ironic that our tax dollars which Kevin Murray also pays are funding the global jihad that he defended this country against. Now he has come home and has to defend the country once again, but this time it is on American soil and it is against the American government. If you have not already been outraged by these bailouts like I have been, then I imagine this should tip the balance for you and it should really piss you off to know that AIG acknowledges and even brags about its promotion of Shariah-based business practices. And this should cause your head to explode: The federal government via the U.S. Treasury Department co-sponsored a seminar in November of this year entitled “Islamic Financing 101”. The Seminar was jointly sponsored by Harvard University. Thompson said in regards to this, “It is clear oil money is purchasing the sovereignty of the United States and whatever loyalty to America these greedy financial institutions, corporations, and universities have left. It’s up to the American people to take back their country from those who so easily betray its interests,” Thompson continued, “This lawsuit is as much about protecting constitutional principles as it is about protecting our national security and preventing another 9/11 – whether it be overt through flying planes into buildings or covert through appropriating taxpayer money to fund an Islamic cultural jihad.”
