ed-murray-mayor-elect-03-750xx3456-4608-0-288For some Muslims, it can be hard to buy a house, and Mayor Ed Murray plans to do something about it.

On Monday, Murray’s housing committee released its recommendations for ways the city can increase housing in the city. Most ideas were what you’d expect, including increasing the city’s housing levy and implementing new rules and regulations to foster development of market-rate and lower-income housing.

One suggestion would help followers of Sharia law buy houses. That’s virtually impossible now because Sharia law prohibits payment of interest on loans. The 28-member committee recommended the city convene lenders and community leaders to explore options for increasing access to Sharia-compliant loan products.

    So does this man they pay asking price and we pay asking plus interest? Why not just give them a house to make Obama and Allah happy? FOOLS

  • Dave N.

    Sharia Law is not compatible with the Washington State Constitution, or the United States Constitution, if these people want Sharia Law they need to return to a Muslim country that practices Sharia, and while they are departing they should relieve Seattle of its current Mayor because he is intentionally egnoring both State and Federal Constitutions which he has sworn to protect and defend in favor of Sharia Law. This leaves the mayor at the very best guilty of deliberate malpractice and prejudice, at worst treason. This is a perfect example of the Progressive Socialist’s attempting to undermine the constitution and the people’s rights.

    Wonder if his wife, male or female, wears a burka. Seattle is Berkeley north.

    • Mike N

      His husband or significant other (I am not sure which) is male. He is extremely liberal as is Seattle. They have an admitted socialist on the council if this helps in understanding the Seattle culture.

        Make him eat pork!

  • Lorene James

    He must be one too.To let this mess keep going.

  • Magoo Lew

    Ed needs to go to any country that practices sharia and see how it works. I bet he’d change his mind very quickly. Doesn’t he read the news or watch the TV and see what ISIS is dong in other countries. This is what he wants here? NTB

    • Melvin Smith

      Just remember what ISIS did with the four gays when the Supreme Court ruled to allow same sex marriages = they threw the four off a roof top to their deaths. Therefore, I don’t think he and his significant other would last long and I guess they would find out who had the [long pole] in the tent or in each other when they threw them off. Amazing how Obama damned the Christians basically letting them know same sex marriages were in; however, he didn’t stress that to the Muslims for I guess he wouldn’t like their answer.

  • Thomas Goss

    Ed Murray should be removed from office immediately. There is no room for Sharia law here in America. I don’t care if these muslims live in a box somewhere, preferably in some other country, but why the hell should they get preferable treatment over Americans. Maybe when one of these camel jockies beheads one of his family he might feel different, but then again he’s just ignorant enough not to.

    • Magoo Lew

      You hit that nail right on the head. I don’t want anyone that practices sharia in my country at all. Every one of them should be deported.

    • megan

      Well let’s look at this: blacks, illegals, gays, and now muslims. Guess where that leaves the rest of us.

  • Lorene James

    What do you do to a neighbor Cutting off Heads,stoning, etc: in their front yard .
    Don’t these people know this law. Or when Americans want to do the same to their families and kids.Will it be OK still ?
