Creepy:  Sharia law introducing Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.

For some Muslims, it can be hard to buy a house, and Mayor Ed Murray plans to do something about it.

On Monday, Murray’s housing committee released its recommendations for ways the city can increase housing in the city. Most ideas were what you’d expect, including increasing the city’s housing levy and implementing new rules and regulations to foster development of market-rate and lower-income housing.

One suggestion would help followers of Sharia law buy houses. That’s virtually impossible now because Sharia law prohibits payment of interest on loans. The 28-member committee recommended the city convene lenders and community leaders to explore options for increasing access to Sharia-compliant loan products.

More and more lenders are offering Sharia-compliant financing, according to a USA Today report. The sector has grown to more than $1.6 trillion in assets worldwide over the past three decades, and analysts see potential for continued growth as the number of Muslims in the United States and Europe grows.

It’s unclear how many Muslims in Seattle would benefit from Murray’s plan. The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) estimates more than 30,000 Muslims live in the greater Seattle area, and Chapter Executive Director Arsalan Bukhari on Tuesday said it’s “fairly common” for some not to seek loans.

CAIR has been identified as a terrorist organization by the UAE. Many of CAIR’s leaders have been jailed or deported on terror crimes. [see Gallery of Terror-Linked CAIR Leaders]

Based on what he called “rough anecdotal evidence,” Bukhari estimated a couple hundred people aren’t borrowing money for houses due to their religion. He said this includes even high-wage earners, such as the more than 1,000 Muslims who work for Microsoft (Nasdaq: MFST) and more than 500 Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) employees.

They could easily qualify for home loans but opt not to apply “simply because they don’t want to pay interest,” Bukhari said.

So called sharia mortgages are a scam and Muslims are still leveraging the tax benefits of the mortgage interest payment.

Murray will send legislation based on the committee’s ideas to the City Council for consideration. During a press conference, he said he wants to help Muslims.

“We will work to develop new tools for Muslims who are prevented from using conventional mortgage products due to their religious beliefs,” Murray said.


 Their religious beliefs also call for killing those who leave Islam, killing gays (another of Murray’s favorite groups), having four wives, marrying children, and waging jihad. Is Murray going to help Muslims enjoy those aspects of their religion too?

  1. I have to pay interest on my loans so should the muzzies!!! Or just pass a law that no one in America has to pay any interest on any thing period.

  2. How much did the Muslims put into the mayor’s campaign fund?

    Really, try to find out – someone got paid off one way or another.

    That’s for sure.

    • Yes, the Mayors’ finances should be investigated… The Secret ones too! :)
      … along with a few more politicians in our governments across the nation, especially in Washington!

  3. One day America will wake and it will have been taken over just like Europe . People we need to stop trying to be politically correct!!! If I or you want to believe a certain way ok but don’t try and push though believes on to some one else! That’s that’s wrong with our political officials always looking for a way to spend our money with no real return to us the taxpayers.

    • Sharia Law is NOT compatible with our Laws and Constitution and should be BANNED 100%!

      It is basically Aiding and Abetting the BREAKING of our laws!
      … That is against the LAW!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
