Unfortunate, non-Jewish conduct

B"H

It is unfortunate that the Bank that prides itself of being "of Israel" prefers to conduct its affairs according to the goyshe principles of the nations and not according to those of the Torah. Five Halachot (Jewish Law) comes to mind, copied with slight editing here from http://www.jewfaq.org/613.htm:

- Not to make loans to Jews on interest (Lev. 25:37)

- Not to borrow on interest (Deut. 23:20) (because this would cause the lender to sin)

- To lend to goyim (to non Jews) at interest (Deut. 23:21)

- Not to demand from a poor Jew repayment of his debt, when the creditor knows that he cannot pay, nor press him (Ex. 22:24)

- To exact the debt from non Jews (Deut. 15:3)


- This is a censored talkback on Fischer leaves interest rate unchanged
