How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
In this case, and I didn't bother to re-read my old links, The Bank of Islam owns 85%+ and the chairman, who was recently fired because they started loosing money because of his views, publicly supported multiple terrorist organizations and causes. While it is difficult to know all the interrelationships in the complex business environment that we deal with, I do think that if you find out that a business has views and activities that you oppose, you do have a right to boycott and let others know your views. Don't just go, oh well there is nothing for me to do. In this case, the boycott has already made a change. And damn straight I don't want any of my money going to terrorists!
No offence, but my $.02.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
