The idea is to bribe them into not waging jihad in Britain. This proceeds from the assumption that Muslims only wage jihad because they are poor and disenfranchised, and that giving them money and opportunities will end their interest in jihad. That idea is ridiculous on many levels. The foremost why is that jihad is a tenet of Islam. And it will not blunt their thirst for jihad. In fact, it will only make the jihadis bolder, because they will see how pathetically weak the British are.
