The Daily Mail of the UK say they have been investigating the money the British government has been doling out as foreign aid and taxpayers may not like where their tax dollars are going.  The Mail claims that during their two year investigation they have uncovered where this money has been going to, including:

 

  • As Europe and Britain’s migrant crisis has spiralled out of control, a BBC Somali radio drama funded by the British taxpayer heard characters trading tips on how to become an illegal immigrant into Europe
  • More than £5 million of UK money went to a US think-tank that spent £12 million on a new HQ in Washington
  • Officials from pariah state North Korea were flown to Britain for English lessons.
  • Music teachers were sent around the world to teach children in 17 countries songs such as Scarborough Fair

Special relationship: The Global Center For Development was given £5.9million. The US-based think-tank has a £12million HQ (pictured) 

British Foreign aid of 5.9 million pounds went towards this building that cost 12 million pounds

UK Aid pays terrorists

Ahmad Musa sits beside me, a convicted double murderer sentenced to life in prison. As we talk, I ask him if he did indeed kill the two men. ‘Yes, I shot them dead,’ he replies.

Yet we do not meet in a jail cell. Musa is free, released after just five years. For he is a Palestinian terrorist and he was liberated under a peace deal.

Like thousands more Palestinian prisoners, including jihadi bombers and killers of children, Musa enjoys his freedom after being awarded a ‘salary’ for life.

He gets £605 every month, others get far more. If they die, the cash goes to their family. These men are seen as terrorists, certainly by Israel, and many in the West

But, astonishingly, the money behind these payments – described by some as ‘rewards for murder’ – flows from British and European taxpayers.

The Palestinian Authority transfers part of their foreign aid from the UK to the PLO, who in turn dole out that money to convicted terrorists or in the case of suicide bombers, their families.  Also on the payroll is Abdallah Barghouti, the Hamas bomb-maker who was sentenced to life after attacks in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It is thought he has received payments totaling £106,000.

Cash for jobs that don't exist: Civil servants in Gaza are funded by western aid, who queue at cashpoints on payday (pictured), even though they haven't had jobs since 2007
