– NOT ONLY are hundreds of trained Islamic State jihadis being allowed to return to the UK, they will get taxpayer-funded homes and counseling to stop them from carrying out terror attacks in Britain:
The top-secret Government strategy – codenamed Operation Constrain – could see returning Islamic State (ISIS) Muslim terrorists jump to the top of council house waiting lists, as well as receiving counseling and help finding jobs to stop them from carrying out attacks in Britain. Official documents reveal that up to 20,000 Muslim extremists previously investigated by MI5 will be targeted with what critics last night described as ‘bribes’ aimed at turning them away from terrorism. What could possibly go wrong?
UK Daily Mail (h/t George W) The highly contentious nationwide programme is due to start next year, with police and cash-strapped councils hoping the Home Office will pay for it out of its £900 million counter-terrorism budget.
Last night, terrorism expert Professor Anthony Glees, of Buckingham University, said: ‘You can’t bribe people not to be terrorists.’ And Tory MP Andrew Bridgen added: ‘This sounds like a reward for being on a list of potential terrorists. You can’t buy people’s loyalty to this country.’
