Muslim Immigrants Draining European Social Benefits

“An estimated 40% of Muslim youth in France and 50% in Germany are unemployed but far from destitute. Rather, they receive a wide range of social benefits. [2] For example, an estimated 40% of welfare outlays in Denmark go to the 5% of the population that is Muslim. [3] According to Otto Schily, former German interior minister, speaking of immigrants in general: “Seventy percent of the newcomers [since 2002] land on welfare the day of their arrival.”[4] In Sweden, perhaps the most acute case, immigrants are estimated at 1.5 million out of 10 million people; immigration is estimated to cost almost $14 billion per year. [5]

These high levels of welfare are accompanied by high levels of unemployment. Nor has this situation improved; rather, it is deteriorating. According to analyst Christopher Caldwell: “In the early 1970s, 2 million of the 3 million foreigners in Germany were in the labor force; by the turn of this century, 2 million of 7.5 million were.” [6]  Similar stories abound in other West European countries.

    Why should they work if the Kaffirs are willing to give them jizzyah even as they rape the Kaffirs’ daughters?

  • Please do not confuse the liberals with facts.

    Same thing here but on a smaller scale due to lower numbers. It should be self evident that coutries that are welfare states cannot afford mass immigration of any type, much less Muslims.

    I wonder if they will catch on before they become extinct. This is not going to end well.

    As you know, Muslims hate Europe but love the European welfare benefits.

      True in way too many cases.

    so for the poison of multiculturalism to be most deadly one requires 1) high levels of immigration 2) a welfare state. If true, the countries most vulnerable would have the biggest State (bureaucracies). Sweden comes to mind, and France, though Obama and the Dems have turned the US so far left it’s almost unrecognizable in 6 years.

    • And Britain.

        This effectively applies to all first world nations that have been overly generous with their social benefits because their expenditures on defense were largely covered by the umbrella of American military reach and interests.

        With Obama, that is changing rapidly. With Muslim immigration, we have “colonial jihad,” as the Muslim Brotherhood calls it.

        The Left may refuse to connect the dots until it’s far too late due to their alliance with Islam and denial of jihad. If there ever was an apt target for the Left’s cadre of feminists, you’d think they’d be all over Islam. But no, they aren’t.

        Just like Canada will. We are not too far behind them.

    If they dont get the jizya given willingly then they will take it forcefully.

        As long as you give them your money and a steady supply of goats.

    Europe, subsidizing the rape and enslavement of her own children.
    Because it ‘feels good’.
