British ISIS supporters raised $27,000 to defend ISIS jihadist Jihadi John from harassment at the hands of the British government.
The Examiner reported, via Religion of Peace:

Few in the Western world would deny even the most despicable of characters a valid legal defense to defend themselves of crimes accused in a court of law. Yet what has many in the United Kingdom raising their eyebrows are the reports bubbling to the surface regarding a number of Britons raising the equivalent of $27,000 to defend the individual dubbed “Jihad Johnny” by the international press, and identified by the British government as the executioner of a number of American, British, and Japanese citizens.

As reported by The Sunday Times (of London, UK) and also by the ITN British television network, both on March 7, 2015, a London-based advocacy group that goes by the nom d’ Internet of CAGE has managed to cull well over £18,000 to defend ‘Jihad Johnny’ from “harassment” at the hands of the British government. For their part, the British government’s Charity Commission has pledged to take “robust action” in their demand that the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Roddick Foundation immediately cease and desist “all current and future donations to the group.”

While seeking to “address the root causes of conflict and injustice,” the Rowntree Foundation has pumped £305,000 ($450,000) to CAGE between 2007 and 2014. Meanwhile, the self-described “progressive” Roddick Foundation has sent £120,000 ($180,500) to CAGE’s coffers between 2009 and 2012.
