Revealed: How YOU gave 1million to Sweet Shop jihadist gang while they held 'sharia surgeries'
Daily Mail ^ | Aug. 27, 2016 | Omar Wahid, Martin Beckford And Simon Murphy

Britain's most notorious Islamist extremists were bankrolled by more than £1 million of taxpayers' money while waging their campaign of hate, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

A dozen supporters of Islamic State recruiter Anjem Choudary – many of them now convicted terrorists or jihadis who are fighting in Syria or have died there – were paid wages by a businessman who was handed huge sums of public money to run computer training courses in libraries and job centers.

And now a judge has found that the man – a close associate of Choudary's – funnelled tens of thousands of pounds through front companies to key members of Choudary's banned terrorist group Al-Muhajiroun (ALM).

His firms included an old-fashioned sweet shop in the East End of London, in whose basement the extremists would hold 'Sharia surgeries' and discuss their plans for murderous jihad.

But, astonishingly, the businessman continued to receive grants from a Government agency nearly four years after his links to Choudary first became known.

Not so astonishing, given the combo of self/culture-hating jihadi enablers and the nature of big bureaucracy itself. I wouldn't be shocked if it were revealed that this sort of thing is happening on this side of the pond as well..

For those not accustomed to that bit of weirdness from the British lexicon:

Surgery (politics):

A political surgery (in British politics) or clinic is a series of one-to-one meetings that a Member of Parliament (MP) may have with his or her constituents, at which a constituent may raise issues of local concern. The issues may relate to local issues (street crime, litter, a request for intervention by the MP on behalf of the constituent with local or national government) or it could deal with national policy matters.

I've been wondering what "MP" meant forever it seems. Just never was curious enough, or just outright forgot to look it up.
Thanks.

Now I've learned something new today besides that thing about the lube dispenser at the gay club. And NO, not VOE! It was in an article here earlier, ya dorks! Hehehe. d:^)
