Britain: Muslims Exhorted to Mooch Government Benefits for Jihad
Vladimir Lenin famously remarked, “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” Britain has gone a step beyond, namely providing generous welfare for self-proclaimed enemies of the nation who have sworn to destroy the traditional society and institute brutal sharia law. Muslim immigration has allowed this travesty to proceed.
News reports have been burbling up for years about moocher Muslims living in luxury, including extra bennies for polygamous wives of Muslims and a raft of welfare goodies for notorious jihad preacher Abu Qatada. The government is too terrified by political correctness to fix it.
(At least we don’t do such stupid things in America. Oh wait, the government is no longer checking prospective immigrants about whether they are likely to become a public charge, aka go on the dole.)
The latest insult is public jihadist Anjem Choudary being filmed saying Muslims should mooch as much as they can from the infidels in order to pursue Islam. He used to occasion to again state the Muslim intention to conquer the West and institute brutal sharia law everywhere. Choudary himself receives £25,000 a year in benefits from the unwilling British taxpayers.
Muslim preacher urges followers to claim ‘Jihad Seeker’s Allowance’, Daily Telegraph, February 17, 2013
A Muslim preacher is secretly filmed urging followers to take benefits from the state to fund a holy war.
Anjem Choudary was secretly filmed mocking non-Muslims for working in 9-5 jobs their whole lives, and told followers that some revered Islamic figures had only ever worked one or two days a year.
“The rest of the year they were busy with jihad [holy war] and things like that,” he said. “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working’.
“But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-believers].
“So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.”
He went on to tell a 30-strong crowd: “We are going to take England — the Muslims are coming.”
Ridiculing the daily lives of UK workers, Choudary said: “You find people are busy working the whole of their life. They wake up at 7 o’clock. They go to work at 9 o’clock.
“They work for eight, nine hours a day. They come home at 7 o’clock, watch EastEnders, sleep, and they do that for 40 years of their life. That is called slavery.”
Choudary, a father-of-four, claims more than £25,000 a year in benefits, £8,000 more than the take-home pay of some soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, according to the Sun, which covertly filmed the preacher at three meetings.
At another meeting in Slough infiltrated by the Sun, Choudary was filmed proclaiming that Islam was taking over Europe.
“Now we are taking over Birmingham and populating it,” he said.
“Brussels is 30 per cent, 40 per cent Muslim and Amsterdam. Bradford is 17 per cent Muslim.
“These people are like a tsunami going across Europe. And over here we’re just relaxing, taking over Bradford brother. The reality is changing.”
Choudary, who has been banned twice from running organisations under the Terrorism Act, told an audience at a community centre in Bethnal Green, East London, that David Cameron, Barack Obama and the leaders of Pakistan and Egypt were the devil (shaitan) and should be killed.
“What ultimately do we want to happen to them?” asked Choudary. “Maybe I’m the only one who wants the shaitan to be killed. The shaitan should be finished. There should be no shaitan.
“Democracy, freedom, secularism, the parliament, all the MPs and the Presidents, all the kuffar’s ideas, everything the people worship, we have to believe that they are bad and we have got to reject them.”
When later confronted about his filmed speeches, Choudary said: “Many people in the Muslim community are on Jobseeker’s Allowance and welfare benefits. As a joke I may say something about Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. Clearly it is not a Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.
“The word jihad means struggle. It does not necessarily mean fighting. I have never said to anyone to kill anyone in this country.”
