European welfare benefits help fund ISIS fighters


“Governments across Europe have accidentally paid taxpayer-funded welfare benefits such as unemployment funds, disability pensions and housing allowances to Islamic State militants who have used the money to wage war in Iraq and Syria, authorities and terrorism experts say.”

As Stalin said, “When we hang the capitalists, they will sell us the rope we use.”


Governments don’t seem to have any accountability when it comes to mismanagement,
fraud and
waste with taxpayer money.
This doesn’t really surprise me.
