Welfare for Terrorists

Posted on | March 4, 2015 | 25 Comments

He repaid British taxpayers by becoming an ISIS killer:

Jihadi John and his asylum-seeking family have milked the British benefits system for 20 years, the Mail can reveal today.
Housing the Islamic State executioner and his relatives in affluent parts of London has cost taxpayers up to £400,000.
One landlord said Mohammed Emwazi’s family were ‘parasites’ and ‘tenants from hell’. . . .
Emwazi’s father Jasem, who has six children, is back in his native Kuwait — the country he claimed he fled fearing for his life.
Westminster City Council is still paying the rent on the family’s £600,000 flat even though the rules say housing benefit should normally be stopped after 13 weeks.
MPs said they were horrified that the child of a family given refugee status, citizenship and benefits had returned the favour by orchestrating the murder of two of its citizens.

Via Memeorandum.

    We subsidize all sorts of bad behavior, why not terrorism too…

    What could go wrong?

    Like the Tsarnaev brothers, another spoiled freeloading death whore. And we should totally stop calling him “Jihadi John” because that lends far too much heroic dignity, to him and to jihad in general. My preference would be “Cancerous Tumor” but I could live with “Product of Incest” or “Bacon Shit.”

    He was wrong. We’re giving them the rope for free and tying the noose ourselves.

    Are you any relation to Charles Martel?
    He did pretty well against the Umayyad Caliphate in the Battle of Tours waaay back in 732. If anyone is going to use the je suis Charlie meme I’d rather it be Martel rather than Hebdo.

    “MPs said they were horrified that the child of a family given refugee status, citizenship and benefits had returned the favour by orchestrating the murder of two of its citizens.”

    But not so horrified that they’ll stop doing it. Perhaps a more accurate word than “horrified” would be “apathetic”, or maybe even “pleased”. And we’re no better.

    During the Cold War, it was fairly common for the Soviets to place sleeper agents within the US. This usually required years, if not decades, of patience to plant and nurture the agent and allow them to blend innocuously with their neighbors, before there would be a payoff. Today they can wander over the border, openly declare their communist/jihadist beliefs and proactively agitate without any need to hide.

    And it’s working so well that we’re following their example.

    Now they don’t have to ”place” the agents. We let hundreds of thousands of them in. The enemy then recruits what it can. Even if they’re only successful !% of the time, that’s thousands of operatives and helpers.

    A Modest Suggestion by AMartel the Peasant:
    People who can’t hack it in the free world get sent home.
    Newbies who pass the smell test get a one year grace period to learn the rules (ie., your life is your responsibility, nothing is free including freedom, other peoples’ money/stuff/lives are not “yours,” you can think or say pretty much whatever you want and so can everyone else, etc. etc.)
    Employed/off the dole/self-supporting, with no criminal activity, within a year or back you go.

    Those are great ideas, and every decent person would back them. But the filthy rich and their lickspittle lapdog politicians disagree, because their raison d’etre is causing us extensive misery. (And I could justify that Biblically, too, interestingly.)

    The establishment politicians and their cronies only want these people for votes and cheap labor, and to take the heat off the politicians and rich cronies in the nations of origin. They don’t care about those 10s of thousands of children that suddenly, magically just showed up here last year. That was all planned by the governments in question, including ours, who cared not at all that those children had to travel through treacherous conditions to get here, and then got farmed out to “relatives” once they arrived. The pols just want those anchor babies. And we’re the bad, greedy, selfish people for wanting to stem the tide.
    If only conservatives could get that message out.

    And, yes, I realize a lot of them weren’t actually children, per se. But a lot of them were. Collateral damage. Whatever. I’m sure the INTENTIONS were all GOOD.

    A significant number of them are gang members who perpetrate the violence those ”children” were supposed to be fleeing.

    the rent on the family’s £600,000 flat

    So, these wankers were living at taxpayer expense in a nearly million-dollar apartment???

    Well, f*ck working for a living here in the US! I’m changing my name to Muhammed el Gimme and taking the family to Britain to live on the dole.
