In Islamic law, non-Muslims have the duty to provide for the upkeep of Muslims. British jihadist Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:
“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”
This is, of course, based on the Qur’an: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).
“Mug a drunk and send us the cash! ‘Supermarket Jihadi’ uses warped Christmas message to encourage ISIS supporters to steal money from festive revellers,” by Omar Wahid, The Mail On Sunday, December 11, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A notorious jihadi fighting in Syria has called on Islamic State supporters to mug drunken revellers and send the money to the terror group.
In a warped Christmas appeal, former Morrisons security guard Omar Hussain, 28, urged militants to steal money and mobile phones to fund global terrorism.
In a rambling message using the mobile phone app Kik, Hussain – dubbed the ‘Supermarket jihadi’ – says: ‘The time of year is coming again where getting ghaneemah [war booty] from the kuffar [non-believers] couldn’t b any easier. Christmas time the kuffar are loaded with money.
‘Wait around the corner from a pub at night… It only takes a few punches for a drunk kafir to fall unconscious. Take a few ikhwa [brothers] with u and u can rob him of all his things. From watches, jewellery, money, phone, jacket, etc.’
He says victims will not be able to call police because their mobile phones will have gone and they will also be too drunk to remember their assailant’s features.
Hussain, of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, had further exchanges on Kik with a Mail on Sunday reporter, who asked him if Raqqa – the terror group’s de facto capital in Syria – was under siege from Kurdish fighters, as reported in the world’s media.
Hussain said: ‘Lol [laugh out loud] raqqa is not under siege. Where did u get that from?’ He said he was ready to become a martyr if Raqqa was attacked.
