Los números de 2013

January 4, 2014

Los duendes de las estadísticas de WordPress.com prepararon un informe sobre el año 2013 de este blog.

Aquí hay un extracto:

El Museo del Louvre tiene 8.5 millones de visitantes por año. Este blog fue visto cerca de 140.000 veces en 2013. Si fuese una exposición en el Museo del Louvre, se precisarían alrededor de 6 días para que toda esa gente la visitase.

Money Jihad reduces posts per week from 6 to 5

January 1, 2014

Money Jihad normally publishes one new post each day except Saturdays, with a couple week-long breaks throughout the year.

Due to a side project, Money Jihad will cut back slightly in 2014 by eliminating one weekday post per week (probably Wednesdays), leaving a total of five new posts per week rather than six—for the next several months at least.

Blogging and tweeting will carry on as normal on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  Thanks to readers, subscribers, and Twitter followers for bearing with this adjustment!

Muslim charity asks us for money to help “to fight Christians”

June 20, 2011

As we’ve noted before, Money Jihad blog receives demands for zakat from Muslims all over the world from direct emails or from comments submitted on Money Jihad posts.  (See this old post for for a dozen examples of “zakat spam” we’ve intentionally left un-deleted.) 

These requests are laughable to anybody who is actually familiar with the content of this blog.  As an anti-poverty program, zakat has an abysmal record.  As a terrorist financing method, zakat has been wildly successful.  This blog donating a single penny in zakat would be as absurd as saying that Islam is a religion of peace.

This message we received through “Contact us” from an entity purporting to be “Islamic Relief Aid Uganda” is also absurd, laughable, and disturbing.  Their IP address corresponds to Kampala, Uganda.

Name: Islamic Relief Aid Uganda
Email: uganda@islamicreliefaiduganda.tk
Website: 
Message: Assalamu alaikum Brothers
 
This is an Email from Islamic Relief Aid Uganda.we need to fight Christians who want to take over our land in Northern Uganda,we are requesting for Money Jihad Brothers to help us fight the Christians get out of our land and this will require publication of materials to be distributed to all Mosques.
 
We Officially submit this application as United 220 Mosques Leaders for request of Support USD 8,000 to buy a Printing Holy Quran Machine and Printing Papers.
 
We appeal to Money Jihad Administration and the Director for support.We look forward for response in Names of Allah.
 
The Bank Account is available on request

Money Jihad blog’s first year

October 12, 2010

Happy birthday, Money Jihad!

Iran’s Mohammad Khatami helps us cut our halal birthday cake!

Money Jihad launched last year on October 12, and the time has flown by!  The blog has been viewed about 25,000 times and readership is still growing.  Thanks so much to all our readers, subscribers, our top referrers (The Religion of Peace, Creeping Sharia, Google, the Dutch website Het Vrije Volk, Jihad Watch for inspiring this blog, and to Shariah Finance Watch both for their support and for their own great work!).  And where would we be without top commenters like Puneet and Sadie?

Periodically we’ve shared site statistics about this blog’s most popular posts.  But on this occasion, maybe it would be better to look back and highlight some of the most overlooked, under-read posts of the year.  These are items that seemed pretty decent at the time, but received few or zero hits according to WordPress stats. 

Let’s just call them “the best of the worst,” and try to breathe some new life into these old bones.

Why not let AML bloggers meet with Treasury?

September 13, 2010

The U.S. Treasury Department has been hosting occasional gatherings of economic bloggers.  Steve Waldman at Interfluidity offers this:

Last Monday, I had the privilege to meet up with a bunch of bloggers and Treasury officials for what might be described as a “rap session”. The meeting was less formal than a previous meeting. There were no presentations, and no obvious agenda. Refugees from the blogosphere included Tyler Cowen, Phil Davis, John Lounsbury, Mike Konczal, Yves Smith, Alex Tabarrok, and myself. Our hosts at Treasury were Lewis Alexander, Michael Barr, Timothy Geithner, Matthew Kabaker, Mary John Miller, and Jake Siewart. You will find better write-ups of the affair elsewhere [Konczal, Lounsbury (also here), Smith, Tabarrok]. Treasury held another meeting, with a different set of bloggers, on Wednesday.

It is bizarro world for me to go to these things. First, let me confess right from the start, I had a great time. I pose as an outsider and a crank. But when summoned to the court, this jester puts on his bells. Read the rest of this entry ?

Spreadin’ the word about Al Jihad bi-al-Mal

August 26, 2010

Take heart, dear reader.  You’re not alone in your concerns about the financial jihad against us.  You’re not the only one who wants to follow the money behind the Ground Zero Mosque.  You’re not the only one who wants to know where Al Qaeda gets its financing.  You’re not the only one who recognizes that the Islamists receive most of their funds through taxes mandated by Muhammad, and that Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s “jihad with money” must be resisted at every turn.  The jihadist is being unveiled.  The word is spreading.

As of this week, this blog has been viewed over 20,000 times.  Thank you, Money Jihad readers & referrers!  And thank you, WordPress, for providing nifty little charts and summaries like this:
