Islamic State bride from Alabama wants U.S. taxpayers to pay for her therapy if she comes home

President Trump has said she isn’t coming back, but Hamas-linked CAIR and others are still pushing for Hoda Muthana to be allowed back into the country. Whence her sense of entitlement, her demand that she be spared prison and that taxpayers foot the bill for her therapy? Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)

UK jihad preacher Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“ISIS bride from Alabama says she wants US to pay for her therapy if she comes home and doesn’t want to go to prison as she recalls picking her three jihadi fighter husbands from a list of men along with ‘200’ other girls,” by Jennifer Smith, Dailymail.com, February 20, 2019:

The American ISIS bride who wants to come home to the US has told how she wants the government to pay for her to undergo therapy if it allows her to return – and says she is hopeful they won’t send her to jail.

Hoda Muthana, 24, spoke on Wednesday in an interview with ABC News, her first since fleeing the terror group three weeks ago, from a refugee camp in northern Syria.

With her 18-month-old son balanced on her lap, she said she had given up the extremist ‘ideology’ that convinced her to leave her family and that she wanted to be welcomed home by the American people.

‘I’m a normal human being who has been manipulated,’ Hoda, who was 20 when she fled, said.

‘I hope America doesn’t think I am a threat to them and I hope they accept me…I hope they excuse me because of how young and ignorant I was.

‘I can tell them that now I have changed, now I am a mother, I have none of the ideology and hopefully everyone will see it when I get back.’

Asked what she would expect as a reasonable form of punishment for joining the terror group and calling for bloodshed in the US on social media, she answered: ‘Maybe therapy lessons, maybe a process that will ensure us that we’ll never do this again.

‘Jail time, I don’t know if that has an effect on people. I need help mentally as well, I don’t have the ideology any more but I am just traumatized by my experience.’

She added that she cries herself to sleep ‘almost every night’ at the thought of being put behind bars….

‘I had a good relationship with my family but I wanted a more Americanized life. I just wanted to go out, I wanted to have, like, friends, go to places. I didn’t get any of that.

‘The only way out for me was to become practicing… to become more religious,’ she said….

Among her extremist tweets was one which read: ‘You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!

‘Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.’ [sic]…
