U.S. Taxpayers Wrongly Own Company That Has Shari'a-Compliant Subsidiary, Lawsuit Alleges
by Pete Winn
Should U.S. taxpayers have control over a financial company that offers insurance and investments that must comply with the same Islamic system of laws that guided al-Qaeda terrorists in Iraq -- and on 9/11?
Not if a former U.S. Marine gets his way.
Attorneys for Kevin Murray, who served two tours of duty in Iraq, filed suit last week in federal district court in Michigan, saying that the government-owned AIG – the American International Group -- owns a Shari'a-compliant subsidiary. That represents an unconstitutional government infringement on religion, according to Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center.
