Claim Jihad Seeker`s Allowance urges Muslim preacher

Created on: 19th February 2013

Anjem Choudary informed followers in a secret filming that some revered Islamic figures had only worked on or two days a year and mocked non-Muslims for woking in 9-5 jobs.

“The rest of the year they were busy with jihad (holy war) and things like that,” he said. “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working.’ “But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar (non-believers).

“So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.” “We are going to take England-the Muslims are coming.”

Choudary went on to ridicule the daily lives of UK workers by saying: “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.”

It is estimated that Choudary, who’s a father of four, claims more than £25, 000 a year in benefits. According to the Sun (who filmed him secretly at three meetings), that is £8, 000 more that the take-home pay for some soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

At another filming, Choudary was filmed stating that Islam was taking over Europe. “Now we are taking over Birmingham and populating it,” he said. “Brussels is 30 per cent, 40 per cent Muslim and Amsterdam. Bradford is 17 per cent Muslim.

“These people are like a tsunami going across Europe. And over here we’re just relaxing, taking over Bradford brother. The reality is changing.”

Choudary told an audience at a community centre in Bethnal Green, East London, that David Cameron, Barack Obama and the leaders of Pakistan and Egypt were the devil (shaitan) and should be killed. 

Choudary has already been banned twice from running organisations under the Terrorism Act.

“What ultimately do we want to happen to them?” asked Choudary. “Maybe I’m the only one who wants the shaitan to be killed. The Shaitan should be finished. There should be no shaitan.”

“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 go to reject them.”

Choudary later said when confronted about the filmed speeches that he may have said something about Jihad Seeker’s Allowance as a joke and that many people in the Muslim community were on Jobseeker’s Allowance and welfare benefits which are clearly not Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.

“The word jihad means struggle. It does not necessarily mean fighting. I have never said to anyone to kill anyone in this country.”

Tim Pearson was quoted in saying: “When is Britain going to wake up to the fact that we are in serious danger of extreme/ radical Islam taking over the UK.  Christians need to be aware that although Muslims say that they have the same God, we know that their religion is false and we should make a stand against any further dominance in our society”
