Islamic Party calls for boycott of Lloyds TSB

Press release:

Not having had the courtesy of a reply after an initial letter of protest to Lloyds TSB, the Islamic Party of Britain is calling for a boycott of both Lloyds TSB and the Islamic Bank of Britain, after Lloyds instructed the Islamic Bank of Britain to withdraw all banking facilities to Interpal, a charity providing much needed assistance to Palestinians suffering under occupation.

"We never understood the so-called Islamic Banking initiatives to be anything but a branding exercise", said Dr Sahib Mustaqim Bleher, general secretary of the Islamic Party of Britain, "but this inappropriate and undemocratic political interference by Lloyds makes it clear who calls the shots". Muslims account holders of either Lloyds or the Islamic Bank of Britain, especially business customers, are urged to move their banking elsewhere or at least communicate to the bank that they may intend to do so. Organisations who have spoken out to support Interpal against this undeserved interference are asked to add their voice to this call for a boycott.

"Talk is cheap", said Bleher. "Muslims should realise their strength and vote with their feet. If we act in concert, there are enough Muslim account holders, given the financial crisis, to turn Lloyds into the next casualty of the banking sector - where they belong if they think they can abuse their power to target our community. If we fail to act, we no longer deserve to be listened to."

I wholeheartedly agree with the good man quoted in your article. However too many Moslems, just like the rest of us in Britain, are full to the nostrils with fluoride, food additives, and pollution to bother getting up from the TV.
And genuinely sad I am at that fact too.

Kettering town and Fulham are due to play each other at the end of the month and ITV and Setanta took the almost unprecedented step of not choosing as one of their live matches a non-league team drown home to a premier league side. it is tradition that such a tie is screened.Interestingly Kettering shirts promote Palestine and Interpal. Not surprised if big Jewish TV bosses are behind this...

Ah so the Islamic Bank thinks that they can bring hardships to the orphans and widows, people of the Ummah well they can forget growth, try “Iraqi Shoes”
How dare they target Interpal.

i have been informing Muslims in Europe about the Islamic Bank of Britain but they can forget it.

you wrote "Muslims should realise their strength and vote with their feet."
this Muslim will show strength -the ink of a scholar is mightier than the blood of a martyr. I will be informing the Muslims about Interpal and the great work they do.
