In Response To: Wisdom behind riba ban? (jawaid ahmed,uk)

I sat tight since I thought this fellow is going to offer some concrete solutions how to eliminate Riba from life. But all he tried is repeating its nuisance and that too by explaining it with the unrelated example.
Like, pork is prohibited by God because of donkey barks.

The subprime mortgage is certainly foolish and utter greed, but so are other businesses taking the undue risk out of sheer greed, a common denominator with all human beings.

But I am puzzled by the question of why Muslims deal with Riba despite strong warnings against it. I see Muslims contradictory being, standing midway between Riba and God, both pulling them to their side.

If Muslims must live with interest economy that cannot be solved (at least in our time), they at least must realize with full consciousness of their contradictoriness between Riba and God. How else to explain it?

I grade video 2 out of 10 since the presenter did not tell anything new. To Brother Jawaid, I am afraid same marks for sponsoring repeat show to the Forum which is heard many times.
