Death of an Empire: The UK Pays Terrorists $38k/yr… While Soldiers Earn Only $24k/yr

You get what you pay for.
Anjem Choudary, a British-Pakistani, who lives on social welfare funds, supports Jihad, 9/11, and Islamic terrorism. He hates democracy, liberalism, secularism and demands Sharia in UK. Choudary tells his followers to take welfare to fund the jihad.

Choudary takes a reported sum of £25,000 ($37,770) per year.
UK soldiers can expect to start in the army on a salary of around £16,000 ($24,172).

The Wall Street Journal reported, via Ace:

Most of the extremists who have repeatedly expressed their hatred of British soldiers are themselves supported by the British state. A prominent hate-preacher—Anjem Choudary, a leader of the disbanded al Muhajiroun—was even caught on video earlier this year extolling Britain’s “jihad-seekers’ allowance.” As he explained to his followers, “The normal situation, really, is to take money from the kafir”—a slur for non-Muslims. “Allahu akbar. We take the money.”

After the video showed up online, a BBC reporter asked Mr. Choudary to clarify how much he’s taking—the press has long reported a sum of £25,000 ($37,770) per year. “It’s irrelevant,” Mr. Choudary replied.

This would not be the first time a country has paid both sides in a conflict. But if the reported figure is anywhere near accurate, it would surely be the first time in human history that a society has paid its opponents better than it pays its own. A British soldier can expect to start in the army on a salary of around £16,000 ($24,172).
