There are really only two large pools of capital in the world today. The first is China as an export powerhouse. We've already posted a good amount of information that indicates Chinese awareness of Financial Warfare and how to use our markets as weapons against us. That's written into their military doctrine as Unrestricted Warfare (or Irregular Warfare).
The other great pool of wealth can be found in the oil production nations, many of which are in the Middle East and under various forms of Shariah Law. From the Economic Warfare paper:
"While peaceable Muslim groups may define jihad as "a personal struggle," there is a large group and long historical tradition that views jihad as the struggle to impose Shariah. Within jihad, there are two primary elements of the fighting, one with weapons of traditional warfare and the other with money. According to the Qur'an, in chapter 61, verses 10.11: "you…should strive for the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives," and chapter 49, verse 15: "The [true] believers are only those who…strive with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah." The financial aspect is known as financial jihad, or Al Jihad bi-al-Mal.
According to Saudi and Muslim Brotherhood (spiritual leader Hamud bin Uqla al-Shuaibi, "The importance of Financial Jihad [is]…more important…than self-sacrificing," (Al-Jihad bi-al-Mal; "Financial Jihad Against the Infidels",

Mahathir Mohamed, as prime minister of Malaysia, founded the Islamic Financial Services Board (IFS in 2002 to develop a "universal Islamic banking system" with the purpose of abolishing the "slavery" of the Western international monetary system. Prime Minister Mohamed has a unique viewpoint on the monetary system, having had his nation as the subject of a bear raid supposedly perpetrated by George Soros in 1997.
[Mahathir Mohamed and George Soros had a long-standing public dispute that began with Soros short-selling the Malaysian currency in 1997. Soros called for Mahathir Mohamed to be ousted from power and in response, Mohamed called Soros a "moron." The two "buried the hatchet" in a December 2006 meeting according to an Associate Press report from Kuala Lumpur (South China Post, 15 December 2006, www.chinapost.com.tw/latestnews/20061215/43088.htm).]
In other words, radical jihadists have the specific and particular goal of abolishing the Western financial system and replacing it with something that would be subject to Shariah law. That something is known as Shariah Compliant Finance (SCF) which may be the fastest growing economic system in the world.
Shariah Compliant Finance is perhaps the single most important intersection point for radical jihadists and the financial system. This is not to say that everyone who participates in SCF is motivated to do harm to the western economies. But, it can be said that a majority of jihadists who desire to harm western economies would be adherents to SCF."
The topic of financial jihad and its relationship to the doctrine of Financial Warfare is a rich one and will be studied at length in future posts. Understanding the fact that we have been spending trillions of dollars over the years for oil produced in the Middle East with the money flowing into Shariah-based Sovereign Wealth Funds is crucial to understanding who might be behind this stealth Economic War being waged against us. By the way, notice how George Soros appears again?
