Revealed, how UK aid funds TERRORISTS: After yet more budget cuts, another £12bn of your taxes are being splurged on foreign hand-outs for militants, killers, Palestinian palaces and jobs that don't exist
  • Mail On Sunday investigation shows that UK money has funded terrorists
  • £72million was given to Palestine, which spent £8million on a new palace
  • £5.9million was given to a US-based think-tank which has a £12million HQ
  • You can sign the MoS petition to force a Commons debate on spending

The scandal of how Britain fritters away billions in foreign aid – including paying salaries to convicted terrorists who have murdered hundreds of innocent people – is exposed today by a major MoS investigation.

The shocking revelation that thousands of Palestinian terrorists, including men who have masterminded suicide bombings and murdered children, are given cash handouts from aid money will cause anger and disbelief, particularly in the wake of the Brussels massacres.

Our probe exposed how huge amounts of taxpayers’ cash, that critics say should be spent in Britain, is being ‘squandered’ on wasteful schemes elsewhere by the Department For International Development (DFID) and Foreign Office.

Despite claims of astonishing waste, the Government maintains a dogged adherence to the commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of the nation’s income on foreign aid – the highest proportion of any of the world’s major economies – even though last year it had to borrow £70 billion.

In a two-month global investigation we have also exposed how:
  • 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
Today The Mail on Sunday launches a major campaign to end the aid madness, along with an online petition on the Downing Street website aimed at securing a Commons debate on the 0.7 per cent pledge.

Tory MP for Shipley, Philip Davies, said he hoped the MoS petition would ‘knock some sense into the Government’.

He said: ‘At a time when we are making cutbacks at home it is completely unjustifiable to keep increasing year on year the amount we are spending on overseas aid.

 ‘We can’t look after everybody in the whole world when we are struggling to look after some people in our own country.’

We dug beneath the headline figures on DFID’s websites to reveal waste and misguided largesse which seemed to extend to virtually every corner of the globe and which will shock readers. In the West Bank and Gaza, despite promises by the ruling Palestinian Authority (PA) to end the practice of paying aid money to convicted terrorists, our investigation revealed that they had simply duped the West by allowing the Palestine Liberation Organisation to hand out the cash instead.

Britain gives £72 million a year to Palestine, more than one-third of which goes straight to the PA. It openly admits supporting terrorists whom it hails as heroes for fighting illegal occupation, awarding lifetime payments that rise depending on time spent in jail and the seriousness of crimes.

One Hamas master bomber has reportedly been given more than £100,000. Other ‘salaries’ go to the families of suicide bombers and even teenagers involved in the latest upsurge of deadly attacks on Israel.

DFID and the European Union are still effectively supporting these payments to thousands of terrorists – despite claims to have ended such links two years ago. This was confirmed to the MoS by former prisoners and families receiving the cash, and in official statements by the PA.

Last night a Government spokesman said: ‘UK aid is spent where it is most needed and is subject to rigorous internal and external checks and scrutiny at all stages.

  1. This article only proves statements made for over 100 years that the British Foreign Office is staffed by very many pro-Arabists.This was in large part responsible for many of the problems caused in Palestine between 1918-1948 and stopped the realisation of the Balfour Declaration and the saving of Jewish lives even during the Holocaust.Just remember the Struma affair. Even the famous Kindertransporte were a "compromise" between the request by the then Jewish Agency for Palestine to admit 100,000 Jewish children after Kristallnacht. Seems the staff carry out their policy irrespective of the Government. So they did US a favour and sent a Jewish Ambassador to Israel and the irony being that he had to promote THEIR policy irrespective.
