    I don't want "Islamic Finance" dictating that a hog farm or brewery can't get an "Islamic loan".

      as I noted in the article linked below, western financial institutions are entering the field of sharia compliant financial instruments.

      if you don't want the product, don't get it.  if you don't like the way the financial instution works, go somewhere else.

      so, in essence, you could get a sharia compliant financial instrument for a westernized operation or purpose.
