4 Wives, 23 Kids: Syrian Refugee Man Receives $400K from Govt.

Obama-ally Angela Merkel and the German government are awarding a Syrian refugee man $400,000-a-year to support his family of four wives and 23 children. After fleeing Syria last year, the refugee known as Ghazia A settled in Montabour, Rhineland-Palatinate to start a new life.

Since polygamous marriages are not recognized in Germany, Ghazia chose one of his four women as his “main wife.” He then settled his other three families in the surrounding area; though the term “settled” and “surrounding” should be used lightly, since some of his family members have been dispersed as far as 31 miles away.

Thus, Ghazia has had trouble holding a job. According to the former mechanic, under Islamic law “it is [his] duty to visit every family and to be with them,” leaving him no time to work and earn a paycheck. He is now using a German “exemption” law to attain government benefits to provide for his families.

The German Employers’ Association revealed Ghazia’s family is entitled to receive 358246.63 Euros ($390032.00, £320,000) per year due to Ghazia’s unique circumstances. The figure may be lower, since one of Ghazia’s daughters has recently moved to Saudi Arabia to be married.
