UK: Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe gets $725,000 home at taxpayer expense

Qatada.jpgSuch a relief to know he’s being well cared-for

The British authorities must think that they win the hearts and minds of Muslims by doing things like this. They will, eventually, be disabused of this notion. “Hate preacher Abu Qatada’s new £450,000 four bedroom home – paid for by you,” by Russell Myers for the Daily Mail, December 15:

Radical preacher Abu Qatada has moved into a new taxpayer-funded house worth £450,000 near to a church — and the furious owner wants him out.

The fanatical Muslim, who preached hate sermons towards the West — arrived in the leafy suburb of North-West London last week.

He had left his previous £400,000 four-bedroom rented home near Wembley Stadium after apparently complaining it was too small for him and his family.

He shares his new detached home, which is paid for by state handouts, with his wife and four of their five children. Similar homes in the area have sold for close to £500,000.

But the woman who owns the smart four-bedroom house reacted angrily last night after discovering the identity of her new tenant — and said she would try to evict him….

Speaking from her home, the owner said: ‘I had no idea who was living there. I have read about this man and why he was in prison, he does not seem like a nice character.

‘A family member was living at the house until they recently passed away. Now we are letting it out via a local estate agent — who told me they would most probably let it to a member of their staff.

‘We signed a contract with the company for six months but there is no way I would have given my permission to rent the house to a man like that — not ever….

‘I do not want this man in my house and we will be taking steps to remove him if we can.’

Neighbours also reacted angrily to Qatada’s move yesterday as it emerged that two security cameras had been installed above lampposts opposite the house….

Another neighbour said: ‘Two men spent an afternoon erecting two security cameras opposite my house. When we asked them what was going on they told us to call the police.

‘But even now, when there are plain-clothed police outside our house, no one will tell us anything.

‘It just isn’t right we should have this stress brought to our doorstep. This is a very nice area for hard working, law-abiding people.’

However, the vicar at the church said: ‘Absolutely anyone is welcome to our church and I would encourage Mr Qatada and his family to join in our Christmas celebrations and reach out to the local community — especially at this time of year.’…

Oh, he’ll reach out, all right.

Qatada, 52, who has been described as Osama Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe, remains on bail in London. Home Secretary Theresa May lost the latest round in her battle to deport him to Jordan, where he is accused of being involved in bomb plots against foreigners.

    The family might show up for the free food…otherwise ‘participation’ is haram…and makes the whole family ‘shirkers’…The Vicar was asking Qatada and his family to sin, an insult to a pious Mahoundian…But it shows how ignorant these ‘Vicars’ are about Islam…

    Abu Qatada runs up £500,000 legal aid bill to stay in UK

    Figure is expected to rise as radical cleric continues to resist efforts to deport him to Jordan.Qatada is watched by police and the security service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    Around 60 officers from Scotland Yard, MI5 and a private security company are involved in the monitoring of Qatada.

    Abu Qatada’s every movement will be watched from space as part of the massive surveillance operation that is costing the public £5 million a year. (as they say: you couldn’t make it up.)

    Human Rights laws are a bonanza for shysters; they win every way it turns.

    Every time I see this bastard’s smug, filthy face, and read about the kid glove treatment and the luxuries he and his family receive at the expense of the British taxpayer, my blood pressure rises. If it were up to me he’d be deported or dead.

    Who knows this preacher may complain the Church’s singing hymns on Sundays disturbs his sleep and the Government may order the Church to be shifted to a far off place. In UK anything is possible.This poor church Vicar does not know that Allah will get angry on Muslims,who attend Church services, and even wish ‘merry Christmas’or shake hands with Christians. Somebody must tell him-‘the more you turn your other cheek-the more and severe slaps you get from Muslims’.

    I am absolutely convinced that the present crop of “leadership” in the western world (and India) has nothing but rocks in their heads. Perhaps Britain leads the pack in this respect. This slimey bast*rd ought to be put in leaky boat and towed to mid ocean, where his fictional allah and “profit” mo will save his ass. His accommodation should be so tiny that he commits suicide in desperation.

    …………………………

    *Unbelievable*. How many people here”decent, law abiding citizens”live in a $725,000 home? I love my home and am very proud of it, but I sure as hell don’t.

    Of course, my husband and I *are paying for this home*”unlike this vile, homicidal Jihadist.

    And how many ex-cons and people out on probation in Britain”or anywhere else in the West”are living like this?

    We are *rewarding Jihad terrorism*.

    Madness, and suicidal madness.

    Worse and worse. Not only is the British taxpayer being forced to pay for this vicious creep’s lavish upkeep, but the home’s owner is being forced to accommodate him.

    “This time of the year” would be Christmas”which Qatada’s equally vicious coreligionists back in Dar-al-Islam are celebrating by threatening Christians and blowing up churches.

    This vicar is a good deal more foolish than his neighbors are.

    The vicar is, no doubt, just trying to be a good Christian”but, intentionally or not, he is standing with this vile Jihadist against the safety and peace of mind of his own neighbors and parishioners. How Christian is *that*?

  7. says

    Me, I hope that the vicar – despite his apparent naivety – is old-fashioned High Church, for that would mean that he would be ringing his church bell (or bells) every day, and then some. If he isn’t already ringing the Angelus, his parishioners should encourage him to do so…and if Abu Qatada *dares* to complain, then every single non-Muslim in the neighbourhood would be advised to rise up and declare that they *like* the sound of church bells, and if *he* doesn’t like it, then he can get earmuffs…or move somewhere else. Like, back home to Jordan where the dhimmi churches are silenced.

    If the landlady should lob in here via google, I would advise her to get in touch with the Law and Freedom Foundation, pronto.

    http://lawandfreedomfoundation.org/

    They may be able to help her find some way to turn the old laws of Britain to her advantage.

    Their speciality is Mosquebusting, but maybe it’s time to branch out into “How to Get Rid of The Tenant/s From Hell”.

    British jihadwatchers reading here, especially if from London (London Jim? are you out there lurking? this looks like a job for you?) may like to do a spot of research, find out which church exactly is involved here, and attempt a little education. If you live within easy travelling distance, why not mosey gently along to one of the pre-Christmas services? This vicar’s neighbourhood just became exponentially more dangerous, and he and his parishioners need information.

    I would suggest the following books to be bought and presented to the Vicar, for his own and the Parish library. Mark Durie’s ‘Revelation? Do We Worship the Same God? Jesus, God, Holy Spirit in Christianity and Islam’, ‘The Third Choice: Islam, Dhimmitude and Freedom’, and ‘Liberty to the Captives’ (which includes some – road-tested – methods for de-dhimmifying dhimmis and…de-Islamifying Muslims). Ex-Muslim now-Christian Sam Solomon’s “Modern Trojan Horse: The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration’ might also help get the parish thinking.

    The thing is that if this church were ‘clued up’ – if they *knew* what they were doing and what they were dealing with – there is actually quite a lot they could do to let Abu Q know, loud and clear, ‘No Dhimmis Here!’

    Preaching the gospel to someone like Abu Q is sowing on stony ground…but on the other hand: were the vicar to smilingly pop a leaflet in the letterbox with the service times and an invitation to attend, that would constitute evangelising of Muslims…which dhimmis are NOT allowed to do, so it would actually be felt, by Abu Q, as a declaration of war/ rebellion.

    I’ve already mentioned ringing the church bells – which would annoy Abu Qatada no end, since dhimmis in Muslim lands aren’t allowed to have or ring church bells.

    If the church already goes Christmas-carolling in that street I hope they will go right on doing it; because public religious processions with display/ statement of non-Muslim faith emblems and messages are also forbidden to dhimmis.

    And regular ‘prayer walks’ – say, once a week – around the block in which this house is located would be a good idea, too. Think of Joshua walking round and round Jericho… (though I would remind any ‘spooks’ reading this, that I am invoking the Jericho story in a *spiritual* sense only; cf. Ephesians 6: 10-18).

    Final thought: anyone local who has a dog, could always take their dog ostentatiously for a walk past Abu Q’s house every day.

    I wish I could feel sorry for these European antisemites

    they still hate the Jews more

    look at whats happening in France

    the transport company RATP (which, according to its website, is the 5th largest public transport company in the world) speaking about working with Muslim colleagues. To avoid reprisals, their faces are hidden.

    The revelations here are:

    The company practises a policy of positive discrimination towards North African Muslims as regards recruitment and promotion, discriminating against indigenous French people.

    Muslim drivers are aggressive and impolite towards passengers.

    Muslim drivers refuse to shake hands with their female colleagues.

    Management refuses to intervene to support staff attacked by Muslim colleagues, in order to maintain “social peace”.

    Some Muslim drivers refuse to drive a bus if a woman has driven it before them

    Muslims pray in their place of work, even on the bus, during work time.

    Muslim racists and fascists treat their white colleagues as inferior beings and are gradually imposing Islam within RATP.

    This could even make Ripleys beleive it or not. go back 15 or so years, I would of said you forgot to take your medication!

  11. says

    You’re right. All over Europe we have to pay for the wankers, excuse my French please. Tommy Robinson, a decent citizen, is in jail in the UK and Abu Qatada lives in a luxurious house with nice neighbours who’re afraid of him.

    Obviously our European politicians are scared like hell. They think without Mahoundian voters no election can be won.

    Hope we can change that, sheikh. Best wishes to you and your loved ones.

    Just one more piece of evidence, epistemology, that the West, bit by bit, is losing its collective mind and soul. I have no doubt this SOB thinks he’s entitled to what he’s getting because he’s a superior human being and kuffaars should be supporting him. Ah, Islam produces parasites galore.

    Perhaps the West will finally wake up and realize that Islam is the ultimate in fifth-column enemies. I think this will happen eventually but we’ll need a new crop of leaders who understand this. The current crop are toadies with no guts and no brains. In other words, they’re just what the Muslim desires.

    Hope you’re doing well, my friend. Take good care.

  13. says

    I’m afraid you’re right. In France they keep talking about “identité”. All over the West they say “mea culpa” instead of blaming the Muslims for what they’ve done. We had so many clarion calls since 9/11. But the West doesn’t wake up.

    you wrote – “I wish I could feel sorry for these European antisemites

    they still hate the Jews more”.

    Question: do you *know*, for certain, that every single person inhabiting this part of London where Abu Qatada has just been set down to the detriment of the neighbourhood, *is* an incurable and unrepentant Jew-hater? If you don’t, then why wish this Neighbour from Hell upon them? In any case, I would remind you that if Abu Q and his cohorts were packed off to their dar al Islam hellholes of origin, Jews in the UK would be a whole lot safer, right along with all other non-Muslims in the UK.

    And I have encountered and encounter enough non-Muslim – and non-Jewish – persons from various parts of Europe, posting here at jihadwatch, who are openly supportive of Israel and who *like* and appreciate Jews and the civilisational legacy of Judaism, to know that the population of Britain, or of other countries, is not solidly 100 % Jew-hating. Indeed, the vast majority of attacks upon Jews in Western Europe at the moment seem to be carried out by the invading Muslims, not by the non-Muslim indigenes.

    Are you prepared to celebrate the death or subjugation of the *righteous* along with the wicked?

    Further: do you think that Jews would be better or worse off, if the whole of Europe – west, south, centre – were swallowed up by Muslims, and its population mass-murdered or force-converted to Islam or driven into exile or reduced to a dhimmi remnant?

    I assume that the remaining Jews within Europe would not exactly want to live there as despised, degraded, exploited dhimmis too, under Muslim rule? But how safe would they be anywhere else?

    I do not believe that Muslims would be content with merely devouring Europe, once they had hold of the nuclear weapons held by Britain and France. Or what if the Muslims succeeded in devouring **Russia**?

    I prefer not to wish Muslim conquest – and all its attendant horrors – upon *any* non-Muslims anywhere in the world.

    -silence means consent

    Just because there were some Christians who saved Jews during WWll, doesnt mean the whole filthy continent wasn’t then consumed with Judenhass.(which, by the way has survived and morphed as ‘antizionism’)

    Every single place where muslims are is a place of conflict and danger for Christians, and yet all these European ‘Christians’ can do, is rant and rail and take steps to boycott and isolate and demean Jews and Israel.

    The more muslims attack and threaten in Europe (and elsewhere) the more they succeed in their jihad.

    The more Jews work, study and scceed the more they are excoriated.

    They were duped by the letting agents
    Evening Standard, London Dec 17, 2012: Owners of Abu Qatada’s new house meet estate agent to get him kicked out

    Qatada was relocated with his wife and four of his five children from a property in north London after complaining of media intrusion following his release from prison.
    [Now it’s because of media intrusion and not lack of space?]

    But today the owners of Qatada’s new home said they were furious they had been “duped” into letting their property as they had been told the tenant was an American company looking to house its employees.

    The property was inherited by a brother and sister in October following the death of a relative and their parents arranged the rental through a letting agency.

    Their mother told the Standard: “We don’t want someone like that in our house.”

    The family said they agreed a six-month tenancy for £1,400 a month.

    Qatada’s housing is paid for by state benefits. The Home Office today refused to comment on the case.

    Daily Mail Dec 17, 2012
    Hate preacher Abu Qatada has been housed in a property belonging to a family who told the rental agent they did not want it let to terrorists.

    The brother and sister who own the £450,000 three-bedroom house in north London were suspicious about their new tenants, but only realised who their notorious tenant was after being tipped off by journalists.

    The sister said: ‘I had no idea. I said to the estate agent: “We’re watching a lot of Homeland; just don’t bring a terrorist in the house”.

    ‘They said the deposit was paid and the references were very good. They said an American company was giving the house to their employees.

    The estate agent claimed to know nothing about Qatada moving in, and told The Sun: ‘We thought the company that rented it was part of the Home Office, or they worked with the Home Office.

    [American company, or the Home Office? Someone’s telling porkies unless he’s working for “The Company” in Langley- has someone told his jihad buddies?]

    Look, I share your frustration with the West in general, and Europe in particular, when it comes to not solidly supporting Israel against Muslim thugs.

    But even if you care *nothing* for Europe’s 500-million-plus people, and their rich legacy of art and culture, and are happy to consign them to the hell of Islam, do you *really* believe that an Islamic Europe is better for either European Jews or for Israel herself?

    If you do, you are mad.

    Do you really believe that a Jew living in Europe today”even with the alarmingly mushrooming Muslim population there”is no safer than he would be in Mogsdishu or Tehran?

    And do you really believe that Israel would be safer with a completely Islamized Europe looming to the north west?

    All I can think is that your resentment must be stronger than your concern for Jews”and it is certainly stronger than your concern for threatened Infidels in general.
