UK: Muslim refugee given £1.25m house in upmarket London street only to trash it

More pathetic stories from the most ridiculous Islamic state in the EU membership: Britain.

Mrs Mahmoud’s son gives a sign what he thinks of Britain and his family’s responsibility as a benefits claimant.

50% of Britains male muslims are unemployed while 75% of female muslims are unemployed – meaning 75% (1.5 mil) of all 2 million muslims registered in the UK collect some form of state benefits. This report was published in 2012 by the Home Ministry and was later removed.
28% (560,000) have been given a free house or flat by a council.
29% (580,000) of UK muslims reported “too ill” to work while 45% (900,000) claim disability benefits.
33% (660,000) of muslims had no qualifications.
40% (800,000) of muslims want Britain to be under Sharia laws.
6% of young students and 32% (760,000) of adults believe muslims who leave Islam should be killed.
Remember most of these numbers are likely much higher today as they represent 2008 data.

An unemployed refugee on benefits has allegedly wrecked her £1.25million townhouse paid for by the taxpayer while her family has been branded the ‘family from hell’.

Mother-of-seven Manal Mahmoud moved into the upmarket Fulham address almost three years ago.

But now she could face eviction after the landlord of the three-bedroom property, Sue Cummings, apparently found the home had been ‘trashed’.

Refugee family Eviction? Manal Mahmoud moved into this upmarket Fulham address following a £76,000 refit – half of which was paid for by public money – almost three years ago but there are claims it has been ‘trashed’ by the family.

Mrs Mahmoud, who is in her late 40s, moved to the UK 12 years ago to escape fighting and political problems in her native Palestine.

But since she’s settled in west London neighbours say the family were antisocial and branded them the ‘family from hell’. Complaints have also been made about them to the council and police.

Ms Cummings, who agreed to let council tenants live in her home in the leafy street close to the River Thames, apparently found doors missing or hanging off and walls written on.

The driveway had also been smashed up, wallpaper was off and carpet worn through, the Sun said.

Outside, the lawn was overgrown, furniture left in the front garden and rubbish and motorbike parts strewn around.

However, Mrs Mahmoud, who has five young daughters and two teenage sons, insisted she had the right to live in the house – which only underwent a £76,000 refit – half of which was paid for by public money – three years ago.

All of her children live at the address apart from her oldest son who is in prison for drug dealing.

She told Sun reporters: ‘I deserve to live in a nice house and get benefits. In this country, it is our right to live here.’

When MailOnline called her address the family insisted they did not have any comment to make.

Meanwhile, Ms Cummings said she was too upset to talk about the damage to her home, which only had a new kitchen and roof put in in 2009.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council said it may fight to evict the family at a court hearing on Thursday.

Deputy council leader Greg Smith said: ‘We have warned this family that they face eviction if their appalling behaviour does not improve.

‘There is a court hearing fixed for Thursday and we are working hard to resolve this matter.’

It’s not the first time plush homes lived in by benefit claimants have come under the spotlight.

Mr Abdi Nur, 42, and his wife Sayruq Nur, 40, sought asylum in Britain in 1999 from Somalia, where he worked for the Red Cross

In 2010 it emerged that a family of Somalian asylum seekers, including Abdi Nur, right, were getting £1.2m a year to live in Kensington, London, left, after saying previous home had been in a ‘poor’ part of the city

.

In February it emerged that at least 100 families receiving housing benefit were living in luxury homes on handouts that could fund £1m mortgages.

More than 30 of those families were being given £1,500 a week to live ‘swanky’ lifestyles – more than three times the national average wage.

Of the 100 families, 60 have their rent paid by the state to the value of £5,000 a month, according to the Department for Work and Pensions.

In 2010 it emerged that a family of Somalian asylum seekers were getting £1.2m a year to live in Kensington, west London – a short walk from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s home in Kensington Palace.

Abdi Nur, 42, an unemployed bus conductor, his wife Sayruq, 40, and their seven children moved to the three-storey home in the fashionable area of the capital after complaining that their previous home had been in a ‘poor’ part of the city.

In another case last year, a Somalian family moved from a house in Coventry to a £2m property in West Hampstead, north London.

Saeed Khaliiff was given £2,000 a week for the home despite having no links to the area, which has been home to George Michael, Sienna Miller, Jude Law and Helena Bonham Carter.

Meanwhile, Afghan mother of seven Toorpakai Saindi was handed £12,000 in housing benefit a month to be able to live in a £1.2million mansion in Acton, west London as there weren’t enough council houses big enough.
