I’ve been a contributor to Kiva for over four years. It’s an organization that gives global microloans to needy people.
I began a team of lenders in 2008 as “captain” and a couple of years later enlisted another member to be “co-captain.” Our team now numbers 14.
But now I am abandoning Kiva, and here’s why: Yesterday I noticed that among the list of loan categories is this: Islamic finance. There is no Baptist finance, no Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu or Jewish finance. Just Islamic. It is the sole religious group singled out for loans.
A Kiva official emailed me that it has to do with Sharia law, that they cannot work in Muslim nations without obeying Sharia law. Kiva should hightail it out of Mohammed’s world ASAP. That’s what I think.
Frequent visitors here know I am no fan of Islamist society. I oppose virtually everything it embraces: oppression of women, a Medieval mindset, despotic governments, hatred of modernity and loathing of the West.
They refer to Jews as pigs, cut Christians’ heads off, stone unfaithful wives to death, and they’re working hard to develop nuclear weapons. Plus, it was their guys who did 9/11, killing thousands of innocents.
And yet, astoundingly, they are the darlings of Western leftists, multicultural Marxists, the diversity mob, and vast, clueless swaths of our elites.
In short, Obama people.
And you can take it to the bank that this is why they’re the sole religious group singled out by Kiva. I never knew this about Kiva HQ, but now I do.
Just women in black sheets. Why bother with a photo? It’s silly.

So I am jumping ship and will participate no more in Kiva. My new ship is called Pro Mujer (pro-woman), an organization dedicated entirely to helping women in Latin America. I encourage you to join in.
You will find no black sheets connected to Pro Mujer. Or stoning of women or cutting off of hands or heads. Nuclear weapons either.

By the way, did you see this last week?
A young Egyptian woman was scheduled to be honored in Washington by Hillary and Michelle. She was to receive a Woman of Courage Award. She had already been included in Time magazine’s list of 100 influential people of 2012.
Then her evil soul was outed, and the award was canceled.
More details here. She’s a real sweetheart.
She likely qualifies for a Kiva loan.
