End welfare to those who seek to destroy the state supporting them. It’s the very least one could ask.

“The normal situation is to take money from the kuffar [non-believer]. You work, give us the money.” — Anjem Choudary
A radical Islamic cleric who lives off the British welfare state has been filmed urging his followers to quit their jobs and claim unemployment benefits so they have more time to plot holy war against non-Muslims.
Excerpts of the speech, published by the London-based newspaper The Sun on February 17, have drawn renewed attention to the growing problem of Muslims in Britain and elsewhere who are exploiting European welfare systems.
In the video, Anjem Choudary — a former lawyer who has long campaigned to bring Islamic Sharia law to Britain and other European countries (here, here and here) — is recorded as saying that Muslims are justified in taking money from non-Muslims.
Speaking to a group of Muslim men, Choudary mocks non-Muslims for working in nine-to-five jobs their whole lives. He says: “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 [a British soap opera], sleep, and they do that for 40 years of their life. That is called slavery. … What kind of life is that? That is the life of the Kuffar [a non-Muslim].”
Choudary urges fellow Muslims to learn from revered figures in Islamic history who only worked one or two days a year. “The rest of the year they were busy with Jihad [holy war] and things like that,” he says.
Choudary continues: “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working.’ But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-Muslims]. So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”
