    Default Ugly, don't worry about Christianity, soon you will have to worship Allah

    I know everyone is worried about Bin Laden urging Americans to embrace Islam but soon Islamists will own America:



    WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 ? Flush with petrodollars, oil-producing countries have embarked on a global shopping spree.


    With a bold outlay of $7.5 billion, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority is about to become one of the largest shareholders in Citigroup.

    The bank had already experienced the petrodollar?s power this month when another major shareholder, Prince Walid bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, cleared the way for the ouster of its chief executive, Charles O. Prince III.

    The Dubai stock exchange, meanwhile, is negotiating for 20 percent of a newly merged company that includes Nasdaq and the operator of stock markets in the Nordic region. Qatar, like Dubai a sheikdom in the Persian Gulf, might compete in that deal..

    In late October, Dubai, which has little oil but is part of the region?s energy economy, bought part of Och-Ziff Capital Management, a hedge fund in New York. Abu Dhabi this month invested in Advanced Micro Devices, the chip maker, and in September bought into the Carlyle Group, a private equity giant.

    It may be a stretch to call Abu Dhabi Islamic. As I understand it, usury is prohibited in the Muslim world, yet they are investing in one of the world's largest practitioners of usury.

    Usury might be prohibited in the "Muslim World" but usury from infidels might be a sacred act!

    I'm sure Citibank would love to do business in the Muslim world--a great untapped market.
