My understanding is the Islamic banks have a 'workaround'. Instead
of charging interest you simply owe the loan amount plus whatever
the interest is. If you borrow $100 and the interest is 5% you've
borrowed $105 dollars. Except for the more extreme fundamentalists,
it's been accepted that way for a long time.
No one said "point 5" was gonna be easy...
Ps. As I was reading Gadaffi's 'Little Green Book' online a while
back I noted his ideas had a lot in common with Anarcho-Syndicalism.

Like Christianity... It doesn't HAVE TO be capitalist but
point 5. "It is forbidden in Islam to ignore the reality of
contemporary times..." Contemporary times is Crapitalist
organized religions, for better or worse, will go with that
I think that there's market-based stuff in Islam that predates
capitalism. There's also a lot that anticipates socialism.
Christianity. I sometimes wonder where we'd be if Islam had
global before Christianity did.
As little as I like organized religions they ARE a
moving masses of people in a given direction. Too bad
take over just as surely as they take over corporations and
other organizational structure.
Yes, too bad :(
