Oh, Those Peaceful, Law Abiding Muslims In France

Washington Post, skipping past the “let’s humanize Muslims” paragraphs

This prison is majority Muslim — as is virtually every house of incarceration in France. About 60 to 70 percent of all inmates in the country’s prison system are Muslim, according to Muslim leaders, sociologists and researchers, though Muslims make up only about 12 percent of the country’s population.

On a continent where immigrants and the children of immigrants are disproportionately represented in almost every prison system, the French figures are the most marked, according to researchers, criminologists and Muslim leaders.

“The high percentage of Muslims in prisons is a direct consequence of the failure of the integration of minorities in France,” said Moussa Khedimellah, a sociologist who has spent several years conducting research on Muslims in the French penal system.

Well, maybe then the Muslims should work to integrate themselves into French culture and society, rather then separating themselves out and living under Sharia law and the way they lived in the places they come from. Less violence would be a start, particularly those yearly to bi-yearly riots they like to start. Maybe stop teaching hate in their schools and mosques.

In Britain, 11 percent of prisoners are Muslim in contrast to about 3 percent of all inhabitants, according to the Justice Ministry. Research by the Open Society Institute, an advocacy organization, shows that in the Netherlands 20 percent of adult prisoners and 26 percent of all juvenile offenders are Muslim; the country is about 5.5 percent Muslim. In Belgium, Muslims from Morocco and Turkey make up at least 16 percent of the prison population, compared with 2 percent of the general populace, the research found.

Sociologists and Muslim leaders say the French prison system reflects the deep social and ethnic divides roiling France and its European neighbors as immigrants and a new generation of their children alter the demographic and cultural landscape of the continent.

And they bring their hardcore Islamist beliefs with them. They do not want to integrate, they want these countries to change to fit the Religion of Peace.

French prison officials blame the high numbers on the poverty of people who have moved here from North African and other Islamic countries in recent decades. “Many immigrants arrive in France in difficult financial situations, which make delinquency more frequent,” said Jeanne Sautière, director of integration and religious groups for the French prison system. “The most important thing is to say there is no correlation between Islam and delinquency.”

Chicken shit director. Drop the PC talk and tell us the real deal. It’s funny that so many people come from other countries, such as Vietnam and Cambodia, Cuba and Western Africa nations, and work their asses off to make something of themselves and be a part of society, yet, when all these Muslims move in, they do little.

The article goes on to say that the French prisons do not distinguish people on the basis of faith or ethnicity, and that the Muslims pitch fits over the food, which is not always halal, but the prisons cannot afford to buy it. Here’s an idea: if you want to be free to eat the foods that your religion requires, do not be a criminal. Case closed.

    the funny thing that came to mind when reading this was that you could substitute black for muslim and apply it to the US prison system. The arguments for the high, disproportionate prison populations are the same.

    Manbearbig – I was thinking the exact same thing. Either way, it has the same consequences: The cycle of violent criminals landing in jail who belong to a certain protected victim class, followed by “spokespeople” for said class excusing their actions as being the majority’s fault for treating them unfairly.

    Isn’t this funny how it’s happening in France and Britain? Weren’t they supposed to be more enlightened than us xenophobic Americans? How are liberals going to explain this?

    The Pirate’s got it right:
    … Muslims should work to integrate themselves into French culture and society, rather then separating themselves out and living under Sharia law … Less violence would be a start … Maybe stop teaching hate in their schools and mosques.”

    Don’t speak this common sense to a liberal. Their head will explode!

    Jewish AND Republican?? Oy gevalt

  3. Muslim Prison Population High … Because of Intolerant America?…

    What if an upwards of 70% of the prison population was Muslim? Would that be an indicator of American intolerance? That would be the liberal explanation. After all, that’s their explanation for why the black prison population is disproportionately mor…
