Welfare Jihad in Europe

More than 30 Danish jihadists have collected unemployment benefits totaling 379,000 Danish krone (€51,000; $55,000) while fighting with the Islamic State in Syria, according to leaked intelligence documents.

The fraud, which was reported by Television 2 Danmark on May 18, comes less than six months after the Danish newspaper BT revealed that Denmark had paid unemployment benefits to 28 other jihadists while they were waging war in Syria.

The disclosures show that Islamists continue to exploit European social welfare systems to finance their activities both at home and abroad — costing European taxpayers potentially millions of euros each year.

    Boy, are those guys in for a good ‘talking-to’ when they get back to Denmark.

      Maybe even a tersely worded letter!

      • Millie_Woods

        What are you, some kind of right wing extremist? : )

        • I see a human rights complaint against the Danes.

        I’ve heard their thinking about breaking out the comfy chair and some soft cushions also.

        It’s gonna be brutal!

      But not nearly what’s going to happen to the Danish intelligence agency and their Ministry of Employment for sharing data about those musloids, Millie. You just watch.

    The Brits are SO done-like-dinner, but like frogs in the gently heating pot, they seem oblivious to the facts around them. Sheeple are sheeple are sheeple, I guess……….

      Gotta love the welfare state!

        It certainly is working in Canada to fund the jihadis.

        Without exit controls in this country I can bet there are thousands of refugees and “landed immigrants” receiving benefits from Canadian governments at all levels who are no longer in Canada but just arrived to sign up and get our public money to fund their lifestyles.

        I already read on another blog about an OCAP executive member and senior No One Is Illegal member who is an “immigrantion consultant” who supposedly is boasting about how many people she has done this for.

      Ironic that my ancestors who detested the French for eating frogs have now become frogs themselves.

    this type of fraud has been known for a long time. It is questionable whether anything will be done to bring the fraudsters to account. After all, serving justice might be deemed as “racist” & politically incorrect. This type of nonsense is all over the western world.

    • lolwut?

      Seeing as they did nothing about rapes of children, I doubt they’ll do anything about money.

    If you support welfare then you are immoral and hate Christ.

    • Millie_Woods

      There’s people who, for one reason or another, genuinely NEED help getting through life. Helping them doesn’t conflict with most peoples morals, let alone charitable Christians. Misguided policy, abuse and fraud in the welfare system are what rational people are concerned about.

      • BillyHW

        Why do you hate Jesus?

        • Millie_Woods

          Well, I did say ‘rational people ‘ so fuck you shit for brains.

    Once a welfare bum always a welfare bum.

    • David

      Is a 10 year old kid whose mother is on welfare a welfare bum?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        He is if he never gets off welfare, which most don’t.

    Europe should strip away their citizenship and never allow them to return.

    If Europe can’t even bring itself to pull the plug on the parasites, then it’s doomed.

    Welfare is evil. It pays for the muzzies to attack us.

  • This is interesting to note. Especially given that Ontario continues to receive the bulk of immigrants to this country.

    Welfare rates rise in Ontario and drop everywhere else over last four decades, new study says


    CALGARY — A University of Calgary study has found that the percentage of people using social assistance is lower than it was four decades ago in every province, except Ontario.

    Ron Kneebone and Katherine White of the School of Public Policy looked at social assistance data for people under the age of 65 from all of the provinces between 1969 and 2012.

    Kneebone said he was surprised to find the rate had fallen in every province but one.

    “The reliance on social assistance in Ontario is now higher than in any other province, except Newfoundland and Labrador.

    In every Maritime province, it’s lower than it is in Ontario,” said Kneebone.

    The percentage of those receiving assistance in Ontario in 2012 was 7.6 per cent, up from the four per cent it was in 1969.

    Newfoundland and Labrador’s social assistance rate was nine per cent in 2012, but half what it was in 1969 at 18 per cent. Alberta had the lowest welfare rate in 2012 at just 3.2 per cent, down from five per cent in 1969.

    Even Quebec, a province with a similar size and economic force as Ontario, has also seen its rate fall to seven per cent two years ago from just under 10 per cent in 1969.

    The study doesn’t look at the reasons for the disparity.

    What someone needs to do is go through and figure out how Ontario’s rules differ from what is done elsewhere

    But Kneebone said the Ontario case begs the question of whether policy missteps have played a role in the province’s high social assistance usage rate. He said the question is whether its social assistance programs are too robust and encourage individuals to go on welfare as opposed to pursue other options.

    “Social assistance is a provincial program and everyone has a different set of rules and regulations that determine if you can collect social assistance and for how long,” he said.

    “What someone needs to do is go through and figure out how Ontario’s rules differ from what is done elsewhere.”

    It has not been a straight downward trend in the provinces over the years. During recessions, the numbers have risen dramatically but dropped off once recovery starts to take hold.

    During the economic downturn in the 1990s, Ontario’s social assistance rate hit nearly 15 per cent, while both Quebec and Nova Scotia were closing in on 13 per cent.

    British Columbia was also near 12 per cent in the 90s, but Kneebone said its number dropped to 4.7 per cent in 2012.

    “What drives people on and off of social assistance is the business cycle,” said Kneebone. “We run into recessions and people go on. There’s recovery and it goes off.”

    Oh look at chowdery and all his batty boys.
    If I had batty boys they would all have jobs and wouldn’t have time to wave black flags in the streets.
    And if they did have time they’d at home with their wives and children.
    Or dahn nee pub for a rare boys night out.

    Welfare is seen as a form of jizya by the Mo-boys, and supremacist Muslim moochers believe they are entitled to it. Work is for suckers and infidels.
