Jihadist Welfare Queen



Text  



Following Uncle Sam’s coughing up of the jizya to Egypt, here’s another angle on the Islamic sheikhdown racket from the United Kingdom — Anjem Choudary, a jihadist imam who urges his followers to soak British welfare and look on it as “Jihad Seeker’s Allowance”:

A controversial Muslim cleric will not face action despite telling his followers to claim benefits and saying David Cameron should be killed.

Telling fellow fanatics to claim ‘jihad seeker’s allowance’, Anjem Choudary, who in the past has planned to disrupt the minute’s silence on Remembrance Sunday, also openly mocked hard-working Britons, calling them ‘slaves’.

The Sun newspaper secretly filmed him saying Islam will overrun Europe, David Cameron and Barack Obama should be killed, and called the Queen ‘ugly’.

That’s pretty funny for a bloke so insecure he won’t let his womenfolk out of their head-to-toe body bags — and isn’t exactly Prince Charming himself. But here’s the point: Her Majesty’s laughably misnamed Department of Work and Pensions provides a half-million-dollar house for Choudary to live in at public expense, and in return he despises her, her government, and the wider society that sees its willingness to lavish him with benefits as proof of its own virtue and enlightenment. He’s not wrong to do so.
