Ron Paul: How Long Will the Dollar Remain the World’s Reserve Currency?

    Ron Paul: Amazingly, a new system was devised which allowed the U.S. to operate the printing presses for the world reserve currency with no restraints placed on it– not even a pretense of gold convertibility! Realizing the world was embarking on something new and mind-boggling, elite money managers, with especially strong support from U.S. authorities, struck an agreement with OPEC in the 1970s to price oil in U.S. dollars exclusively for all worldwide transactions. This gave the dollar a special place among world currencies and in essence backed the dollar with oil. In return, the U.S. promised to protect the various oil-rich kingdoms in the Persian Gulf against threat of invasion or domestic coup. This arrangement helped ignite radical Islamic movements among those who resented our influence in the region.

NC: Islamic prayers in Marshall Park draw critics

    Charlotte Observer: About 200 Muslims gathered for a traditional Jumah prayer Friday afternoon in Marshall Park, kicking off a week of religious events in Charlotte tied to the Democratic National Convention . . . A Christian group set up on a sidewalk beside the park turned on a loud sound system as the Muslims tested their system. They held up a sign: “Democrats attack morality, family, children.” “We’re glad that (the Muslims) are here,” said the Rev. Phillip “Flip” Benham of Concord-based Operation Save America, an anti-abortion group. “If the devil is going to throw a party, it’s imperative that the church of Jesus Christ show up.” Organizers of “Jumah at the 2012 DNC” had expected up to 20,000 Muslims from across the country to pray on the first day of a three-day cultural event. But only a couple of hundred unfolded chairs to sit in the park’s shade.

Who Speaks for Reform in Islam?

    R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. at Washington Times:The problem with Islam, as I see it, is that it has never reformed itself to accord with the modern world. Of all the major religions, it looks not to the future but to the past. Its impulse comes not from reformers looking to a future living in comity with Westerners. Its impulse comes from fundamentalists looking backward to centuries long gone, and the fundamentalists want to impose their vision of the world on all civilizations. If there are modernizers in Islam, they do not speak up. They do not even protect their ancient mosques.
