Prison Da'awa, Prison Jihad

Jihadi Virus in Our Jails  Once Islam gets into the system, it replicates and begins to cause serious problems for the host. Where has this not been true?


U.S. state prisons are major breeding ground for Islamic radicalization

At least two of the four Bronx synagogue jihadis “entered the system as Baptists and were paroled as Muslims.” More on this story. “State prisons are major breeding ground for Islamic radicalization,” by Wil Cruz, Joe Kemp and Patrice O’Shaughnessy for theDaily News, May 22:

The four men accused of plotting to blow up synagogues and shoot down a plane all did stretches in state prisons – a major breeding ground for Islamic radicalization. 

At least two of the suspects, James Cromitie and Onta Williams, entered the system as Baptists and were paroled as Muslims.

The concern about prisons incubating jihadists has been heightened in the debate over releasing Guantanamo terror suspects to facilities across the U.S.

FBI Director Robert Mueller has called America’s prisons “fertile ground for extremists.”

A 2006 study called “Out of the Shadows” found “tight-knit communities of Muslims in prison are ripe for radicalization, and could easily become terrorist cells.”…

Two Congressmen demand Uighur Gitmo jihadists be brought to U.S.

They were members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement and were captured at an Al-Qaeda training camp. Bring them to the U.S.! Let McGovern and Delahunt put them up!

“Lawmakers demand Guantanamo Uighurs move to US,” from AFP, 

WASHINGTON (AFP) — Two lawmakers of President Barack Obama’s Democratic Party appealed Thursday to let Uighurs locked up at Guantanamo Bay move to the United States, saying they were victims of injustice.  (thanks to Weasel Zippers):Vlad Tepes: Time to wake up and smell the coffee. Outside of the typical far left Utopian, Americans must wake up to the reality that foreign jihadists do not belong in federal penitentiaries within our borders. The idea is beyond stupid.

Yeah, life is hell for Muslims in the U.S. That must be why so many want in – and none of them ever leave.

Spencer: Jailhouse Jihad


In the featured article at Human Events this morning, I discuss jihadist recruitment in prisons, which should be a chief concern of law enforcement officials in the wake of the Bronx synagogue jihad plot, and the implications of all this for the Gitmo inmates.

Should we bring Guantanamo inmates to U.S. prisons, as the Obama administration has proposed? FBI Director Robert Mueller doesn’t think that it would be wise to house such prisoners even in the ultra-high security Supermax facility: “The concerns we have about individuals who may support terrorism being in the United States run from concerns about providing financing, radicalizing others.” Radicalizing others is a real possibility: two of the four Muslims, James “Abdul Rahman” Cromitie and Onta “Hamza” Williams, who were arrested last week for plotting to blow up synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down an airplane, converted to Islam while in prison. When they went to prison, both were Baptists.This really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. Mueller sounded the warning some time ago, saying that America’s prisons were “fertile ground for extremists.” And a new Rand Corporation study, released just this month, has found that Islamic jihad groups have long targeted prisons as key centers for recruitment.
