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).
“Thousand of pounds in British benefits used to FUND ISIS and terror cells’ expert claims,” by Charlie Bayliss, Express, December 7, 2016:
ISLAMIC terrorists are being funded by hundreds of thousands of pounds in British benefits, a former independent reviewer of terrorism legislation has claimed.
The accusations come after a Birmingham man was convicted of giving Mohammed Abrini – the man believed to be the mastermind behind the Paris and Brussels attacks which killed 162 innocent civilians – £3,000 to fund terrorist activities.
The Government has been under intense scrutiny to conduct an inquiry to establish the full extent of benefit fraud linked to jihadist causes as counter-terror experts claim some British money has been used to pay for ISIS weapons.
Lord Carlile of Berriew told The Times: “Several hundred thousand pounds in small remittances have been used to fund terrorism in one way or another”.
He added: “[Such activity] has increased during the rise of ISIS. Certainly the Government should ensure that there is more triage available when housing benefits recipients are known to have gone to another country.”
Belgian-born Zakaria Boufassil, 26, moved to Birmingham and claimed British housing and child benefits and transferred the money to suspected terrorist Abrini, who travelled from Syria to Britain to pick up the money.
Abrini was reportedly captured on CCTV following the Brussels Zaventem airport suicide bombing attack.
Nearly £11,000 was funnelled into the account of Anouar Haddouchi, another Belgian living in Britain who also claimed benefits despite mostly living in Saudi Arabia.
Birmingham city council apologised for their blunder of paying nearly £6,000 to Haddouchi and Boufassil’s account – even though they were no longer living in the area.
Mohammed Ali Ahmed, who was being tracked by MI5, helped Boufassil hand over the cash having impersonated Haddouchi to gain access to his bank account.
Boufassil and Ahmen were both found guilty at Kingston Crown Court, London, of engaging in conduct in preparation of acts of terrorism….
