Prisons have become hotbeds of Islamic radicalization and conversion.
These savages should not be housed in the general population. It’s no secret that jihad prisoners terrorize other prisoners, and many prisoners convert to Islam in order to survive the abuse and harassment. Meanwhile, prison imams work hard to convert violent, broken men to Islam. They are the perfect candidates for violent jihadism.
Why do prison officials continue to tolerate this jihad recruitment? They should be held responsible in some way for the deeds of any prisoner who is “radicalized” on their watch, then is released and goes jihad. This madness has to stop. What official is going to have the courage to stop it?
“Chelsea bomber is ‘trying to radicalize inmates and has gone on a hunger strike’ after he was convicted in Manhattan attack that injured 30 people,” by Ariel Zilber, Dailymail.com, December 24, 2017:
Federal prosecutors say the man who was convicted of setting off a bomb in Manhattan that injured 30 people last year has been attempting to radicalize fellow jail inmates.
The government says Ahmad Khan Rahimi gave other inmates access to speeches by Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki and materials including bomb-making instructions, The New York Times reports.
Federal prosecutors allege that they found the materials on Rahimi’s laptop. These materials were then used in Rahimi’s trial.
The allegations came in a letter Friday from the office of Acting US Attorney Joon Kim to Judge Richard Berman.
Berman is to sentence Rahimi on January 18 after a jury convicted him in October of all the charges against him.
Jurors in Manhattan found Rahimi guilty of all charges, including counts of using a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a public place.
He was convicted on all eight counts after a short but tense trial in which prosecutors accused his attorneys of using the ‘Al Qaeda playbook.’
The Afghanistan-born man living in Elizabeth, New Jersey, faces a maximum punishment of life in prison.
Prosecutors say the inmates Rahimi shared the materials with included Sajmir Alimehmeti, a Bronx man who has been charged with providing material support to the Islamic State.
Rahimi shared the materials with inmates during Friday prayer sessions at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the Manhattan jail where inmates are housed while they await trial or sentencing, the federal government alleged.
The letter from Kim’s office to the judge alleged that after employees at the jail learned of Rahimi’s ‘radicalization efforts,’ they searched his personal property and found an address book with names and inmate numbers of other suspected terrorists, including Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh and Maalik Alim Jones.
Al Farekh, a native of Texas, was convicted in 2009 of helping to plot an attack on a US military base in Afghanistan.
Jones, a native of Maryland, pleaded guilty to providing aid to the Shabab terrorist organization in Somalia.
Meanwhile, it was learned on Friday that Rahimi wrote a letter to the judge saying that he began a hunger strike on December 8….
