$50,000 a year for this terrorist shows the suicidal tendency of the Australian state
It is official – The government of Australia is as stupid as the government of Britain. The wife of a terrorist ‘suspect’ is recieving $50,000 a year in welfare payments while her terrorist husband is in jail charged with a terrorist plot.
AUSTRALIA’S 22 terror suspects and their families receive more than $1 million a year in taxpayer-funded welfare and legal aid.
And simply because the men were locked up, their families received a social security pay rise of as much as $1700 a year.
One of the jailed Melbourne men, Abdul Nacer Benbrika — leader of a radical group of Islamists — has been in Australia for 10 years and has never had a job.
So this ingrate comes to Australia, works not a single day and pays not a single cent of income tax, then feels free to preach Jihad? The nerve!
Taxpayers provide his wife with almost $50,000 a year in welfare.
I think the average yearly wage in Australia is around $30,000 to $35,000.
Mr Benbrika was among 13 Melbourne men charged with belonging to a terrorist organisation.
Of Algerian descent, he has a Lebanese-born wife and seven children.
Under Centrelink rules, she is entitled to almost $50,000 a year in welfare while her husband is in prison, awaiting trial.
I see it now. Come to a country where the foolish infidels will pay you to breed your own Jihad army.
His family is not the only one, either.
Ahmed Raad, another Melbourne suspect, has a child and his wife is entitled to about $21,500 a year, as are the wives of Ezzit Raad and Abdullah Merhi.
The wife of another suspect, Hany Taha, who has three children, is entitled to up to $30,000 a year.
Among nine Sydney suspects charged with conspiracy to carry out a terrorist attack was engineer Mohamed Ali Elomar, 40. He has five children and his wife is entitled to about $38,000 a year in taxpayer payments.
Omar Baladjam, a former actor on the ABC TV program Wildside, has two children.
Some people are angry about it but I doubt it will make a difference because they completely miss the point.
People Against Lenient Sentencing president Steve Medcraft said it was an insult to law-abiding battling families.
“Why would you get an increased benefit when you go to jail? That’s an insult to law and order,” Mr Medcraft said.
“It never ceases to amaze me the way the system always favours the accused.
“You go to jail, get three meals a day and free dental, medical and optical and your family gets an increased benefit.”
Crime Victims Support Association spokesman Noel McNamara described the payments as disgraceful and said welfare benefits should be suspended when someone was charged with terrorism offences.
“It is ludicrous that someone who is an alleged terrorist should receive benefits,” he said.
“It should be immediately suspended and if they are found not guilty, pay it out then.”
No, Mr McNamara. The existence of these kinds of welfare payments only encourages excessive breeding by the wrong kind of people. I dont think I have heard of a terrorist suspect that was not on welfare. Our foolish system of social welfare attracts the very people that are least likely to contribute to it.
Lets make no bones about it – this guy has been preaching Jihad against infidels (including Australians) for years before he got caught red handed in organising terrorist attacks. And we foolish Australians keep on encouraging more to come! I dont blame them for wanting to commit terrorist attacks because our policy of multiculturalism encourages them to maintain a medieval culture and hostility towards Australians and Australian culture.
No doubt Muslims in Australia question the right to exist of a country that refuses to fight. I do too. Australians need to learn that “Muslims do not bite the hand they cannot cut off“
