Lew Rockwell interviews Mustafa Akyol

Is Islam compatible with free markets? Turkish journalist Mustafa Akyol
points out that the vast majority of the world's 1.2 billion Muslims are
tolerant, peaceable and reasonable people whose lives do not make the news.
The blowback of terrorism is the result of Western colonialism and the CIA's
promotion of fundamentalism in its Afghan war on the Soviets.

Islam was founded by a successful merchant, and the religion was largely
pro-market until the colonial disease of socialism infected the Muslim
world. The Koran calls the merchant the most honorable man, saying that nine
of ten of God's bounties come from trade.
