Bava Batra tells of spies from the tribe of Dan who encountered the grandson of Moses serving as the priest for an idol. "What are you doing here?" the spies asked. "How could you be serving an idol?" Moses' grandson responded that he was there for the money. "I have a tradition from my grandfather," he stated, "that it is better for one to work in the service of an idol (avodah zarah) than to rely on other people to support him."
Compounding the interest of self-deceit:
A few months ago, FXCM, a foreign currency exchange (forex) business based on usury, began to solicit investments from Orthodox Judaics and their Orthodox rabbis. As part of their promotional campaign, they approached Rabbi Shmuel Eliezer Stern for a heter iska, a halachic (legal) document that nullifies the Bible's prohibition on interest by creating a loophole based on the fantasy that profits derived from FXCM's usury accruing to Judaic investors in a Judaic-owned business are not interest, but are "shared profits from a return on an investment." Upon receiving the heter iska from Rabbi Stern, stories were published in Orthodox Judaic newspapers praising FXCM and using Rabbi Stern's name and his association with Rabbi Vosner's Beit Din (rabbinic court) for promoting FXCM's business.
