Danish Bank considers Sharia-loans

This isn't the first instance of Muslims trying to import sharia to Denmark:

Jyske Bank considers Sharia-loans

Jyske Bank is the first Danish bank to be considering the possibility of offering its Muslim customers a special so-called "sharia" or interest-free loan. According to the Koran, it is forbidden for Muslims to pay interest and therefore it is impossible for them to borrow money in the traditional way. But even if such loans were possible, it would be no cheaper for the customers because instead of paying interest, they would have to pay service charges. However, according to Danish tax regulations, whereas interest is tax deductible, service charges are not.

Integration Minister Rikke Hvilshøj was targeted by an arson attack against her private home by leftists who were unhappy with Denmark's immigration policies:

Tougher expulsion rules on the way

Integration Minister, Rikke Hvilshøj, has announced plans to introduce much tougher rules for the deportation of criminal immigrants from Denmark. She said a yellow card would be given to any foreigner who commits a first criminal act. Any subsequent crime would mean automatic expulsion from the country. Exactly which offences could lead to expulsion have yet to be defined. The Minister has rejected a proposal from Liberal candidate for the post of Mayor of Copenhagen, Søren Pind, to withhold social benefits after a second offence and deport after a third.

You shouldn't be surprised about the Sharia-loans. It's all about the money - greed. Here in the States we reward illegal aliens by offering them loans too.

I don't get that comment - who said that these Muslims are illegal aliens?

I think the Danish bank is doing well in this case. About time our banks realize that new times have come and that there is an ethnic pluralism in the society today.

The liberals want to take away social benefits after a second crime, and deport after a third. Taking away social benefits would LEAD to lots of "Third strikes". I think your liberals are just as bad as ours...

Take a gander at the latest post by Fjordman. You might have a different view of ethnic pluralism after that.

I can already hear the loony left wing 'human right activst' cry 'Disciminaton'.

But good for us - then the few muslims owing a property will pay nore taxes.
