He no doubt considered the disability pension his due as a Muslim, whether or not he was really so disabled as to be unable to work. For it is the Infidels’ duty to pay for the upkeep of the Muslims: “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).
UK jihad preacher 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.”
“Overweight man on a disability pension for his obesity is freed on $50,000 bail after being charged with sending money to ISIS terrorists in Syria,” Australian Associated Press, November 23, 2017 (thanks to Kenneth):
A Melbourne disability pensioner charged with funding Islamic State fighters in Syria has been freed on a $50,000 surety.
Isa Kocoglu was bailed on Thursday on strict conditions banning him from contact with ISIS sympathisers and social media, except to contact family members.
The 43-year-old married father from Hampton Park is charged with supporting persons engaged in hostile activity in Syria.
Australian Federal Police allege Mr Kocoglu sent almost $4000, using online payment system PayPal, to a known ISIS jihadist between November 2013 and August 2014.
It’s alleged he administered a website used by people who support Islamic State ideology when he helped raise funds for the ISIS member.
The Victorian Supreme Court was told he made admissions to police, but claimed the money was being sent to someone engaged in humanitarian aid in Syria, rather than a terrorist.
The AFP believed Mr Kocoglu poses an unacceptable risk of interfering with witnesses and failing to answer bail if released.
But commonwealth prosecutors did not oppose bail, provided there were strict conditions.
The court was told Mr Kocoglu had family ties to Turkey and expressed a desire to migrate to Syria.
But his defence said he surrendered his Australian passport and was able to immediately hand in his expired Turkish passport.
At the time of his arrest, Mr Kocoglu was on a disability support pension due to his obesity and mental health.
He took his fight to the Supreme Court after being refused bail by a magistrate in October.
Justice David Beach ruled on Thursday the risk he posed could be reduced with a surety and strict conditions.
He ordered Mr Kocoglu report daily to police, obey a 10pm to 6am curfew and stay in Victoria….
