Preventing Islamic Radicalization

Submitted by Donnell Evans, Oct 15, 2016 17:15

As a former inmate in the NY penal system I was at the time a muslim and confined during the 911 attack at the world trade center. I have left the religion of Islam for over ten years now partly due to discouragement at what I saw and heard among the brotherhood and some Imams, As well as common sense Thank God. I am very proud to say that I am back to my faith of my upbringing which is Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Everything that this article is saying is true because I witnessed myself. There is a type of Islam that's being preached now that wasn't there to my knowledge in the past called Salafism or the Salafi school of thought. It states that it is the precise teachings of Prophet Muhammid which to some extent that's true, but with a twist towards extremist views taking one back to the 7th Century Islam. There lies the problem of radicalization. Upon seeing this for myself I decided to leave this ideology and go back to Christianity the religion of my birth. I was afraid to say anything up until now for fear of reprisal. For they teach that if one should leave Islam they should be killed. I have met and heard Umar myself while locked up and Salahuddin who are both looked up to in the penal system and who are very persuasive. (However I know Islam doesn't teach to kill innocent people or harm those who are what they call non-combatants i.e. civilians. Nor are they to destroy or harm women,children,old folks,animals or plants according to Qu'ran) So these so-called terrorist have distorted the religion of Islam for their own purposes)


GOD didnt write the Koran....

These idiots are so stupid they cant realize that the Koran was written by a man. Not only that its only Allah can kill. Using God as a excuse to kill is what the devil does. How can they listen to criminals about converting to Muslims. They are not in jail because they are good people they are there because they sercame to evil thoughts. They are there because they are con artists. They should open real books where they might learn somthing important than about a molester, jealous man, that though he was closer to Allah because he herd voices in his head. Only crazy people hear voices speaking to them.


Limitations on prison sentences

Most in our system of prisons do not serve full terms. As mentioned in the essay here:

Another problem that needs to be fixed is that in jail, Islamist converts generally avoid violence for fear of upsetting the prison authorities. Therefore there is little if any incentive for the warden or prison officials to keep tabs on the activities of the Islamist prisoners - or for that matter Aryan nation prisoners - or what they are being taught or what is in their libraries.

Criminals and their attorneys are smart enough to work the system and gain early release for time served and good behavior.

I wonder how many incarcerated Muslims various Muslims "civil rights groups" represent right now? Such a list might be another tool to protect our nation.
