How can we possibly fight this war, the war against terror, if we are constantly funding the terrorists?!
Did we throw money at our enemies in the past? Did that ever help us accomplish anything good?
No, we don’t think so.
It’s come to light that the ring leader of the London terror attack was bankrolled by the taxpayer.
Khuram Butt, 27, was claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance of around £300 a month, and was also paid housing benefit for his council-owned flat in Barking as well as child benefit.
Father-of-two Butt was a supporter of al-Muhajiroun and an associate of its leader Anjem Choudary, who encouraged his followers to exploit Britain’s welfare system.
The jailed hate preacher even used the phrase ‘Jihad Seeker’s Allowance’.
Butt, who wore an Arsenal shirt on the night of the attack, started claiming benefits after being sacked from his job on the London Underground last October.
He worked there as a trainee customer services assistant for nearly six months but was fired for poor timekeeping.
He also received Jobseeker’s Allowance for over a year after leaving a job at KFC and prior to working for Transport for London, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Relatives of Butt said he drew inspiration from extremist videos on YouTube and wanted to fight in Syria but had his passport taken away by family.
Fahad Khan, 36, the cousin of Butt’s wife Zahrah Rehman, claimed his younger relative watched the hateful tirades of preachers online and supported ISIS.
Butt is suspected of running mixed martial arts classes at the Ummah Fitness Centre, in Barking, in an attempt to groom teenagers for terror.
The gym was raided by police on Tuesday after CCTV revealed the three London Bridge terrorists met there days before the attack.
It shows Butt meeting Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, five days before they murdered eight people and left dozens injured.
Funding their own deaths. When will we learn?
