Some 16 Belgian citizens who had previously joined the ranks of Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, and other Jihadist terror bands operating in Syria and Iraq, are back in their home country living off welfare funded by the Belgian State. Since the men “comply with all of the legal requirements,” the authorities claim, it cannot be prevented that they’re now growing fat on Belgian taxpayers’ money, even though they may have been involved in terrorism, mass murder, (child) rape, slavery, and the like.
According to the most recent statistics produced by Belgium’s anti-terrorism agency, OCAD, 117 foreign terrorist fighters who had left for Syria have since returned to the little Western European country. About 1 in 6 of the Jihadists has these past 6 months been soaked in social benefits, the authorities admitted to Belgian daily De Tijd.
Wouter Langeraert, spokesman for the national social security institution RVA, explains:
“We’re simply living in a constitutional state, not every Syria fighter who has returned is in jail. Some returnees comply with all of the legal requirements: they’re not imprisoned, they’ve been registered in their municipalities, they’re available to the labour market, they answer calls from the public employment services, et cetera.”
According to Langeraert, the RVA always asks OCAD and other relevant organisations to provide information on individuals asking for unemployment benefits.
Approximately 600 Belgians are registered in OCAD’s Jihadist database, making Belgium the Western country with the highest number of foreign fighters per capita. In Brussels and certain parts of Flanders alone, recent reports have shown several dozens of Muslim terrorists have been cashing welfare grants, thereby possibly financing their genocidal Islamist backpacking journeys with tax money. In order to put a halt to this, Belgium started the BELFI-project in the autumn of 2014. Since then, almost a hundred illegitimate cases have been discovered. It turned out that not only unemployment benefits are used to fund Islam’s ‘holy war’, but child support payments as well.
The Danes too have been struggling with Jihadist citizens living off welfare benefits. At least 34 of them have fought for Isis but continue to receive state grants, The Independent some two months ago reported.
Islam poses big problems for Belgium
Newly arrived immigrants are making the costs of the Belgian welfare system spiral out of control, recent reports proved. Furthermore, people from Islamic cultures pose specific problems for Belgium, for example keeping its specialized police officers increasingly occupied with paperwork on files concerning Jihadist terrorists and radicalised Islamic citizens. At the same time, the more ‘moderate’ Muslims turn parts of the country’s urban environment into virtual no-go zones even for police while others commit gang rapes singing Arab songs.
