Regular, long-time readers of SFW may recall a posting from almost exactly 2 years ago in which it was announced that an attorney who had specialized in Shariah Finance had been appointed as a White House fellow by President Barack Obama:
The attorney in question is named Samar Ali. At the time she was appointed to the Obama White House, Ali raised some concerns nationwide due to her specialization in Shariah-Compliant Finance and her association with the World Islamic Economic Forum, an organization that has essentially designated Shariah Finance as "missionary operations" to promote Islam and Shariah.
Now we find out that the embrace of the Shariah Finance Trojan horse extends across the aisle as well. Sources in Tennessee tell us that the Republican leadership in that state have seen fit to appoint Ali as the International Director of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
