The government of the country at the center of the Muhammad cartoon controversy in 2005 that turned Muslims worldwide into frenzied mobs, has been subsidizing the efforts of nearly 30 ISIS fighters. According to the AFP (h/t Breitbart), some Danes who are actively fighting with ISIS are receiving unemployment benefits from Denmark:
Denmark paid unemployment benefits to 28 people while they were waging war for the Isis terrorist group in Syria, the Danish intelligence service was quoted as saying on Thursday.
Out of the 28 Danish people identified by the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) as having received benefits, 15 had been ordered to pay the money back, eight people were still being investigated, and five cases had been dropped due to insufficient evidence, tabloid BT reported.
“It is incredibly important that we are not naive,” Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen told the daily when asked about the data, which was found by merging records kept by different authorities.
Denmark has one of the world’s most generous unemployment insurance systems, with those on the dagpenge scheme receiving up to 801 kroner per day (108 euros, $134) for up to two years.
It’s safe to say that these ISIS fighters from Denmark supported the reaction to the Muhammad cartoons as well and have no business receiving taxpayer dollars.
Then again, people generally get the government they deserve.
