Islamists On The Dole In Britain

Omar Bakri Mohammed, at best a terrorist sympathizer, left London for Lebanon several days ago. This followed Tony Blair's announcement that he would seek to expel Muslim extremists. According to the Telegraph, Bakri...
...receives £331.28 a month in incapacity benefit and £183.30 a month in disability living allowance because of a leg injury he suffered in his teens.

Both payments will continue for at least six months while he is abroad, as long as he plans to return, as will the housing benefit on his home in Edmonton, north London, and his council tax benefit.

His wife, who remains in Britain with their seven children, can also continue to claim a benefits package thought to be worth at least £1,300 a month. Bakri drives a Toyota people carrier worth £30,000, paid for under a scheme called Motability.

The preacher is expected to return for an angioplasty procedure.
Efforts are underway to prevent Bakri from returning to the country.
