I understand what you mean. We must speak up for them. I have Muslim friends who will not speak up because they fear what will happen to family members who are in their homelands. At the same time, many have an obligation to speak up on their own. The "silent majority" no longer cuts it.

I agree. We should always consider the source.

That's like arguing that some AP story in Villages Daily Sun is biased because it shows up in our paper.

Islamic finance surged in recent decades by introducing products that mimic credit cards, savings accounts, and mortgages while avoiding interest."

How can Sharia-compliant businesses flourish much less survive if you can't charge interest and can't borrow money? I suppose you can borrow money but the lender can't charge interest.

Default The muslim bible

Any truth to the rumor that the holy book (which they follow) of the muslims calls for the killing of those that will not convert ? How can they then be peace loving or trusted?

Two sides and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. I'm sure the daily sun would not freely quote msnbc either.
