Muslim Gangs Imposing Sharia law in British Prisons

They already have dozens of Sharia Courts outside of the UK prisons, so why not bring Sharia into the prisons? Of course the answer by the Prison Officers’ Association is to recruit more Muslim officers. When problems with Islam arise, the usual answer by non-Muslims is to get Muslims to come in and deal with it. Well, if that is the answer why is the problem clearly getting worse and worse? I will say it over and over, “moderate” Muslims are not coming to the rescue. The problems is ours, and we cannot pass the buck here. It will be Sharia or our way of life, take a side!

Muslim gangs imposing sharia law in British prisons
Radical Muslim gangs are imposing a form of sharia law inside some of Britain’s prisons, a BBC investigation has found.

Non-Muslim inmates at the high-security Long Lartin jail have been forced by the gangs to stop playing “Western” music and take down pictures of women from their cells, according to one former prison officer there. Prisoners at the jail, although allowed to cook their own food, are not allowed to prepare pork for fear of offending the Muslim inmates, the officer said.

The officer, speaking to Radio Five Live’s Donal Macintyre show, told how younger prisoners were targeted for forced conversion to Islam by the gangs. “They went along because they were intimidated. They genuinely weren’t of the Muslim faith,” she said. “I knew one lad quite well, who was approached by the radical Muslims and he changed. He was being controlled and bossed around and he wasn’t even allowed to look at me or speak to me.

“He just seemed very frightened all the time. He used to be forced to pray at certain times and he was even forced to grow a long beard even though he didn’t want to.”

One Catholic prisoner who refused to convert was seriously assaulted after being repeatedly threatened by the gang, the officer said. “He said every so often they would come to his cell and hold the Koran up through the small window in the cell door and start running their fingers along their throats,” she said.

The officer’s testimony is consistent with findings by the official prison watchdog, the chief inspector of prisons. In a report last year, the inspector, Anne Owers, quoted a number of prisoners at Long Lartin about the increasing dominance of Muslim gangs in the jail.

Long Lartin was, said one, “turning into an American-style jail, [where] if you are not in a gang, you’re in trouble. People are converting to Islam for protection.”

Another said: “There is a gang culture here, which is an issue. There are issues with Muslim gangs wanting to overpower others. A lot of people are becoming Muslim just because it is a bigger gang.”

Ms Owers says there is a similar gang culture in at least three other high-security prisons, Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire, Belmarsh in south-east London and Full Sutton in North Yorkshire. Some of the gang leaders are terrorist prisoners but most are in for ordinary offences.

Two Muslim former prisoners claimed in the BBC programme that Muslims “run” some London jails and describe how they watched al-Qaeda videos in their cells, brought in by corrupt prison officers. They also detail further bullying and abuse of prisoners who refused to convert to Islam and said that in one London jail, prisoners who wanted to play music had their stereos smashed. They said that the official prison imams appointed by the Home Office were largely ineffective and not respected by Muslim prisoners.

Malcolm Moss, national chair of the Prison Officers’ Association, said: “We are seeing more and more Muslim gangs in our prisons. Often Muslims who go to prison are forced into gangs for their own protection. And that culture takes over a wing, takes over an area of the prison. We see it as a real danger, now and for the future of prisons.”

Mr Moss called for more Muslim prison officers to be recruited as part of an urgent effort to “face up” to the gangs.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Justice said: “It is ridiculous to suggest that any gang ‘controls’ a prison. The Prison Service has a wealth of experience in dealing with gang activity and managing prisoners who form gangs. Expert staff identify, challenge and disrupt those prisoners attempting to bully, influence or intimidate others. We have long established strategies to address gang behaviour, and to counter bullying, combat illicit mobile phones and tackle drugs.”

The spokesman said there was “no evidence” that al-Qaeda videos had been watched and insisted that bacon was not banned.

    I don't think our own prisons are very far behind.

    Yes it is either our way or the sharia highway. We are still large majority but the muz are far more ruthless than us. Just look how they can scare prisoners into converting. The psychopathic ruthlessness is why they are winning over us even if they're still a minority.

      The Koran tells them that they do not have to be anywhere near the majority to defeat us.

      [8.65] O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand [in other words, "do not understand totalitarian ideologies like Islam"]. [8.66] For the present Allah has made light your burden, and He knows that there is weakness in you; so if there are a hundred patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand they shall overcome two thousand by Allah's permission, and Allah is with the patient.

    This prison activity started a long time ago. Halal food was their first demand. Then prison toilets couldn't point towards mecca. But it should come as no surprise that arselifters are overrepresented in prison.

    In the U.S., one of the Islamic expansion methods (evangelism/da'wa) is through jails, often by telling prisoners that through Islam, they can get back at society.

    Many of these are African-Americans. Now, I wonder if the Black Muslims know exactly what the Qur’an and the real Muslims (Arabs) think of them? Here is something I was emailed:

    One of the most bizarre manifestations of African-American pride is its contemporary identification with Islam. The Nation of Islam (Black Muslim movement) plays on the racism against black people by white people; hence, you hear them use terms like "white devils," etc.

    Meanwhile, the Muslim Hadith says the following about blacks:

    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah's Apostle said, "You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin." (Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 89, Number 256)

    Hadith; vol. 9:162,163: Muhammad warned that dreams of black women meant disease was forthcoming. Black Muslims today are so uninformed that they don't even understand that Muhammad had many black slaves and called them raisin heads (Hadith vol.1:662, vol. 9:256 )

    Muslims are told that Africans “annoy the Prophet” (Ishaq 243), have hearts “grosser than a donkey” (Surah 9:61), that blacks should be left to die if injured, and should be denied intercession and entrance to heaven (Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 52, Number 137). And yet, Louis Farrakan and his followers will claim that Christianity is the white man's religion. Jesus came for ALL, REGARDLESS of color. It was the peaceful Christians in America who stopped all slavery here.

    The story goes that, in 1930, Allah appeared to the people of Detroit in the form of a mysterious man named “Fard.” Allah’s human form seemed to be of African and Arab descent and claimed to have been born in Mecca—a descendent of the prophet Muhammad. He preached a message of racial identity and claimed that Islam was the true religion of the black people of America, before the white man robbed them of it.

    In fact, Fard was really just a small-time conman named Wallace Dodd Ford who served three years in San Quentin for drug dealing. He drifted into Detroit at a time when many African-Americans were beginning to form racial identity groups around charismatic personalities such as Marcus Garvey. Of course, race consciousness was hardly just a “black thing” at the time, as the 1920’s were also when Ku Klux Klan influence peaked in America.

    Interestingly, Ford was neither of African or Arab descent, as he claimed. He was a mix of European and Polynesian. But he did recognize an opportunity when he saw one, and the street preacher soon built up quite a following among those who could appreciate an overtly racist theology that persists to this day in spite of its zaniness.

    According to Ford and his Nation of Islam, Africans were the original and only people of the world (divine and uncorrupted) before whites were invented by an evil scientist named Yakub in a malicious experiment with tragic consequences. Islam is the true religion, and, at some point, a spaceship will be sent by Allah to eliminate the white people from the earth.

    Another sad aspect of Black Muslims is that many African-Americans are drawn to Islam out of racial pride, thinking that there is some sort of association with Africa. Muslim evangelicals in the black communities and in prisons often play this up in an attempt to persuade the gullible into rejecting Christianity as the “white man’s religion.”

    In the First place, Christianity in Africa predates Islam by almost 600 years. Christian missionaries were on the African continent within two decades of the Crucifixion. Secondly, unlike Christianity, Islam had no interest in missionary hospitals or the poor. Arab contact with Black Africa was for one purpose only, plain and simple. The same as it is now: slavery. The awful truth is that Arabs ravaged Africa for more than 1000 years before Europeans ever got their hands on black slaves. These Black Muslim slaves died from being overworked, and lived in squalor. By contrast, the four million slaves brought to America over the course of 200 years managed to leave the most prosperous group of African descendents on the planet.

    Orthodox Islam does not want to be identified with the Black Muslim movement in America. It is seen as heretical and is not considered part of Islam.

    Will this change their minds about following such an evil entity?

      Yo dood just to let you know, AS AN ARAB MUSLIM, We dont have color separations in our religion. Ur speaking out of your ass. I have plenty of black family members, some african and some african american. The prophet didnt call anyone a raison head. One of the first muslims was a black slave named bilal who was freed by the prophet. Stop trying to separate the unity between the african and arab muslims, or even the asian muslims. We are one , Aint shit u can do about it. So make up some more shit cuzzo and hope u dont get sent to prison anywhere 😉

    and the reason why the NAtion of islam and islam are different is because the nation of islam preaches that there is a reincarnate of god, when islam strictly preaches that there is no god but allah. And most black muslims are not nation of islam they are just regular muslims
