In his column in BarbWire today, conservative writer Tim Brown is very disturbed by the prospect of “welfare jihad.” Brown cites a case in Minnesota where county prosecutors charged a couple who owned child care and health service businesses, along with two men who worked on their billing, with fraud for ripping off the government and their clients as part of a benefits scam.
The case has nothing to do with religion. But since they are Muslims, says Brown, the scam was clearly part of a jihad. It’s just like how anytime a Christian is charged with any crime, all of Christianity must be to blame.
In November, I visited St. Paul, Minnesota for the first time and got somewhat of a firsthand look at what Somali Muslims have done to the area in and around the city. Truly, they know how to run the area into the ground. On top of that, it’s also apparent of the welfare jihad that is taking place there as well. The latest incident involves the DEQO Family Centers, which are child daycare centers. According to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office, several people (including two owners, who are Muslim) have been charged with 96 felonies in a major scam that defrauded the government of $4 million.
It has been widely known that Muslims are encouraged to take welfare for the purpose of jihad and since the founder of Islam was a thief , it is only appropriate that his followers be thieves as well. This is just more welfare jihad in the United States.
Previously, Brown criticized a Georgia town for approving a plan to build a mosque despite his “jihad concerns” and accused President Obama of engaging “in taqiyyah” and “sympathiz[ing] with his Muslim brothers.”
