No surprise: Tamerlan Tsarnaev got Massachusetts welfare benefits

Many devote Muslims appear to be willing to take social assistance benefits than work for infidels or advancing the agenda of infidels …

Tamerlan Tsarnaev got Mass. welfare benefits

Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned.

State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter. The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services said those benefits ended in 2012 when the couple stopped meeting income eligibility limits. Russell Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Katherine — who had converted to Islam — was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home.

In addition, both of Tsarnaev’s parents received benefits, and accused brother bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger, according to the state. Source: Tamerlan Tsarnaev got Mass. welfare benefits | Boston Herald

Many consider social assistance payments to be a tax (jizyah) on infidels (unbelievers) as it is described in the Quran …

The consensus opinion of Muslim scholars justifies the imposition of tribute on non-Muslims who fall under the Muslim rule in terms of the verse 9:29 of the Qur'an. This verse has been thus an important source of the Islamic laws on dhimmis (Non-Muslims of an Islamic State).

 Quran 9:29 -- Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

Bottom line …

Islam is an intolerant religion that demands that unbelievers be put to death or enslaved and taxed for the benefit of Muslims. So, taking welfare or other social assistance is both acceptable and preferred within the faith as it provides a life of religious study and contemplation.
