Welfare payments to jihadis

Boston HeraldAn ISIS fighter killed on the battlefield last year collected welfare while living in Maine as he was being self-radicalized over the internet, the Herald has learned.

Adnan Fazeli, 38, of Freeport, Maine, collected food stamps and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, officials said. The married father of three lost his payments in 2013, Maine officials tell the Herald, after he left for Turkey to join the terror group.

Paying people to sit at home and stew in their own anger and resentment is a recipe for disaster. The results won't always be terrorism, but they are rarely pleasant.
