Mr Vidallo said that a group of richest families of the world introduced the system of usury in order to control the economy and states of the world. He said that the original model is Muamalat and the full implementation of Muamlat means the establishment of an Islamic trading Bloc, based on our model of Trade and our currency, the Islamic Dinar and Dirham. He said that an Islamic Trading Bloc was therefore not just Muslims trading with each other using the present capitalistic way of trade. He said that an Islamic trading Bloc would consist of every body, Muslims and Non-Muslims, trading in a way in which Islamic Law Defines trade, Islamic Trading. Regarding the validity of gold, he said that its greatest strength is the fact that it was and it had been the best international money in history.
