Breeding Islamic Terrorists in American Prisons

The most promising recruiting grounds for Islamic terrorists to carry out strikes against America is not democratic Iraq. It's our own prison system. What better place to look for violent, disaffected losers with a grudge to bear against civilization? There is also the added advantage that prison converts usually are not Middle Eastern, and can more easily blend in.

As reported by World

Al Qaida continues to recruit members in U.S. prisons despite a government crackdown, FBI officials told a congressional panel. U.S. officials said Al Qaida's recruitment has been facilitated by Muslim clergy with access to federal and state prisons.

Famous prison recruits to the cause of jihad include alleged dirty bomb conspirator Jose Padilla (USA) and shoe bomber Richard Reid (UK). Expect there to be many more where they came from. Saudis fund a "prison outreach" program through the National Islamic Prison Foundation, devoted to converting petty dirtbags into mass murderers in the name of Allah. As Cal Thomas reported,

Prison Fellowship Chairman Charles Colson, who heads a Christian ministry to prisoners, believes radical Islamic clerics, trained in Saudi Arabia, are converting large numbers of African-American inmates not only to their religion, but to their political objectives, including virulent anti-Americanism.

Nosy Christians! No wonder the ACLU is trying to keep Christian ministers out of prisons.

Imam Umar Abdul-Jalil, the head of Islamic chaplains in the New York City Department of Correction, made the news the other day by declaring at a conference of Islamic leaders that the "greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House," that "Zionists" control the media, and that Muslims are being tortured in Manhattan jails. What do you suppose he's telling potential recruits on Rikers Island?

When his comments where made public, Abdul-Jalil promptly played the race card that will prove extremely valuable to certain homegrown al Qaeda recruits:

He said he was "offended, as an African-American, that someone would have the audacity to question my citizenship" and love of his country.

Other Muslim extremists to spread their poison on the New York taxpayer's dime include Imam Intikab Habib, who was forced to resign as NYFD chaplain for publicly asserting that it was not al Qaeda but a "conspiracy" that brought down the World Trade Center, and Imam Warith Deen Umar, the former chief Muslim chaplain in the state prison system, who expressed support for 9/11 terrorists.

There are certainly plenty more behind them. Somehow I doubt the ACLU has any objections.

Hat tips: Atlas Shrugs, Stop the ACLU, Jihad Watch

Norman Siegel, former Executive Director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, whispers sweet nothings to Umar Abdul-Jalil.

Siegel: "Just think, together we can CRUSH Christianity once and for all!"

Abdul-Jalil: (thinking to hinmself) "Yes, and after we kill all the Christians, your head will be the first on the chopping block, my useful idiot friend."
