In his Washington Times column this week, Frank Gaffney reported on today’s educational program at the United States Treasury Department:
The department is hosting a half-day course entitled “Islamic Finance 101” on Thursday at its headquarters building. Treasury’s self-described “seminar for the policy community” is co-sponsored with the leading academic promoters of Shariah and [Shariah-Compliant Finance, or SCF] in the United States: Harvard University Law School’s Project on Islamic Finance. At the very least, the U.S. government evidently hopes to emulate Harvard’s success in securing immense amounts of Wahhabi money in exchange for conforming to the Islamists’ agenda.
It is not clear to me from Gaffney’s column what is happening here, but I am certain that attention should be paid.
