Danish Citizens Still Getting Welfare While Fighting for ISIS Terrorists in Syria

The Danish government recently discovered that more than two dozen of its citizens on welfare were still getting government assistance even though they’d left Denmark to go fight for ISIS terror forces in Syria, a report said.

Does anyone doubt that this is happening here in the USA?

According to AFP, PET said 15 of the welfare recipients have “been ordered to pay the money back, eight people [are] still being investigated, and five cases [have] been dropped due to insufficient evidence.”

Denmark has two different unemployment systems, one of which is the dagpenge–a system which pays $134 “per day for up two years.” It appears some of the jihadists were on this system and some were on “a more modest…unemployment benefit.”

In June PET said “more than 100” Danes had gone to Syria to fight alongside ISIS. However, Naser Khader–“a Danish commentator on Middle Eastern affairs”–believes that number needs to be “revised upward.” It is believed Denmark has “the second largest number of foreign fighters in Syria relative to its size among Western nations.”

Breitbart News previously reported that Austrian police raided various homes and mosques on November 28, arresting 13 jihadist recruiters and seizing propaganda and funds being used for the benefit of ISIS. This followed a September OE24 report claiming Austria has become a “terror hotspot” and that “hundreds of [ISIS] supporters were…in Austria.”

Are western nations throughout Europe funding ISIS this way? You can bet on it.
