Atlas readers are well aware of the conversion, recruitment and brainwashing of prisoners to Islam in our nation's prisons. This is fertile ground. Disenfranchised, uneducated violent offenders make the perfect target for jihad plotting and recruitment. Atlas has been covering this as early as 2005 and 2006.
The Saudís also have a special program aimed at converting blacks in prison. In a well-documented June 2002 article in the Washington Times, Cal Thomas noted that the program is funded by Saudi Arabian money through the National Islamic Prison Foundation, which underwrites a "prison outreach" program designed to convert large numbers of African-American inmates not only to Wahhabism, but to its political objectives — including virulent anti-Americanism.
The Wall Street Journal (February 5, 2003) also confirmed that Wahhabism is making serious inroads into the black population of American prisons. It quoted a New York-based Wahhabi imam, Warith Deen Umar (who until his retirement in 2000 helped run New York's growing Islamic prison program by recruiting and training dozens of chaplains and ministering to thousands of inmates himself), as saying:
Jose Padilla, a former Chicago IL street gang member, became radicalized while in prison. He was arrested in 2002 on suspicion of planning to explode a "dirty bomb." Richard Reid (a.k.a. Abdel Raheem and Trig Rajah) was also radicalized while incarcerated in a UK prison. He attempted to ignite explosives in his shoes and thereby blow up an American Airlines plane in mid-flight during Christmastime in 2001.
Nothing is being done to stop this growing army of jihadis in America.
Apparently Osama Bin Laden's plan to exploit minority converts and recruit minorities for attacks is well underway.
The man who created the Muslim Chaplain Program in America is sitting in jail for 23 years on terrorism charges.
