John A. Sandwick, an American Banker created one of the first Sukuk funds. He was recently interviewed by the Korea Times.
Mr. Sandwick had some less than kind remarks for these peculiar Christians opposing the Sukuk bill.
Mr. Sandwick noted to the Korea Times that: “Sukuk don’t help terrorists. Zakat is a community tax similar to religious taxes paid all over the world. Sukuk are bond-type securities. How can we be speaking about them in the same sentence? Where is the link?”
Korean politicians should learn to ignore the ramblings of these Shamanist quasi-Christian cult leaders and let reason and the mainstream thoughts of the general population prevail.
