Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:
“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).
The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:
“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)'” (Bukhari 4.53.388)
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.”
A former suspect in a gang murder has fled to Syria – after being radicalised in what is allegedly one of Britain’s most secure prisons.
Shahan Choudhury, 30, vanished from his flat in London last year and has since used Twitter to urge other British Muslims to carry out terror attacks in the UK.
His family say he was ‘brainwashed’ after spending 18 months on remand in HMP Belmarsh for allegedly taking part in the stabbing of a 17-year-old.
He has been joined in Syria by his wife and three children, including a baby.
According to the Sunday Times the family’s escape may have been funded by housing benefit payments.
Choudhury’s wife Mehak is alleged to have traveled to Syria in early 2016, a few months after her husband.
The family’s landlady discovered that Mehak had received a monthly housing benefit payment of £1,000 – which she’d failed to pass on as rent.
Shahan Choudhury first came to the police’s attention when he was charged with being part of a gang who stabbed a 17-year-old hospital worker to death over an alleged £15 drug debt.
He was acquitted in 2007 but his family believe he was ‘brainwashed’ by Islamic extremists at HMP Belmarsh.
As soon as he was released he joined the banned al-Muhajiroun (ALM), the hate group led by Anjem Choudary which has called for the implementation of Sharia Law in the U.K.
A relative said: ‘He was just like any other western kid when he went in but by the time he came out he was going on about religion and how the kuffar [non-believers] would all end up in hellfire.’
Mehak was also radicalised halfway through her A-levels, according to her family.
Her father, Mohammed, said: ‘I told police at the time that my daughter was becoming brainwashed and was involved with these people.
‘But they told me there was no evidence of extremism and that, as an adult, she could do what she wanted.’
HMP Belmarsh has become ‘like a jihadi training camp’ according to one former inmate.
He told the Evening Standard: ‘The problem is that Belmarsh is also a holding prison and so young people are brainwashed and indoctrinated and then go out into the wider prison system and create wider Akhi networks.
‘Governors, prison officers and imans [sic] all know about this.’…
