Muslim Preacher Tells Followers Getting Welfare Cash For Holy Wars Is Easy And Right

Group urges Muslims to collect government benefits as a “jihad seeker’s allowance”

Sun News secretly filmed the man’s remarks at three different meetings where he said, among other things, that it is natural for Muslims to take money from the kuffar (derogatory term for non-believer), that Prime Minister Cameron and President Obama are the devil, and that Islam is taking over Europe.

He explained the benefits of not working (all subsequent emphasis added):

“You find people are busy working the whole of their life. They wake up at 7 o’clock. They go to work at 9 o’clock. They work for eight, nine hours a day. They come home at 7 o’clock, watch EastEnders, sleep, and they do that for 40 years of their life. That is called slavery. “And at the end of their life they realize their pension isn’t going to pay out anything, the mortgage isn’t going to pay out anything. Basically they are going to lose everything, commit suicide. What kind of a life is that, honestly? That is the life of kuffar (non-believer)…

“People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working’. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar. So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.” Comparing benefits to a jizya, or tax on non-Muslims, he added a laugh: “They give us the money — you work, give us the money! Allahu akbar, we take the money.”

A 2010 Sun News report says Choudary collects £25,000 in government benefits and lives in a £320,000 house in London.
Sun News has more on how Choudary described the western way of life:

He gloated that the 9/11 terror attacks “shook the enemy” and claimed white supremacists wished they had the “fortitude” to fly planes into buildings. He went on to proclaim: “You must hate in your heart — Cameron, Obama, all that they worship. “Democracy, freedom, secularism, the parliament, all the MPs and the Presidents, all the kuffar’s ideas, everything the people worship, we have to believe that they are bad and we have got to reject them.

“Reject them with our tongue. Reject them with our heart. In our heart have hatred towards them.”
