Brit taxpayers subsidize Muslim harems

The United Kingdom has gone mad with cultural "sensitivity"  and is now officially subsidizing polygamy for Muslims on welfare, despite the fact that bigamy is a crime in Britain. From James Slack writing in the Daily Mail:

Husbands living in a "harem" with multiple wives have been cleared to claim state benefits for all their different partners.

A Muslim man with four spouses - which is permitted under Islamic law - could receive £10,000 a year in income support alone.

He could also be entitled to more generous housing and council tax benefit, to reflect the fact his household needs a bigger property.

Ministers have decided that, even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, polygamous marriages can be recognised formally by the state - provided they took place overseas, in countries where they are legal.

The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife.

Ministers estimate that up to a thousand polygamous partnerships exist in Britain, although they admit there is no exact record.

Potentially, the benefits bill for income support could reach £10m.

Why a country should subsidize any immigrant remains a mystery to me. I remember when immigrants to the United States had to prove they would not be a burden to the public treasury. That sensible policy was discarded some time ago, obviously. And, in fairness, one does hear of polygamous members of breakaway Mormon sects with multiple wives who collect substantial welfare benefits in this country.

And in further fairness, this country subsidizes illegal behavior in certain ways, such as distributing needles to junkies, in hopes they won't contract AIDS and other diseases as they destroy themselves with heroin and other drugs.

Still, our Muslim friends must be having quite a laugh at the way the British infidels grovel before almighty Islam. Saudi Arabia, the home of Islam, bans bibles, churches, shorts on foreign women, and many other aspects of western culture they find objectionable. And Britain, the US, and all the rest meekly accept this in the name of sensitivity.

But sensitivity is a one way street when it comes to Islam. So Britain agrees to import polygamous Muslim men and pay their living expenses and those of their harem.

It is obvious which side is winning  the jihad.
