Ticking Bomb: Muslims in French Prisons, Blacks in US Jails.


While in the United States African Americans tend to be disproportional in the prisons, in France it is the Muslims. Between 60 to 70 percent of all prisoners in France are Muslim.

Researchers, sociologists and Muslim leaders came with the information, the total Muslim population of France is 12%.

Brookings Institute underlined the seriousness of the French problem to the welfare of the country in relationship to some of its youth, a new generation that is not well integrated.

90% of the French Muslims condemned the attacks on the World Trade Towers and 70% supported France's involvement in an eventual military response. That shows that there is a pricipal core of Muslims against extremism but a serious concern about the growing numbers of disaffected youth ending up in prison and the evental consequences of it to their families and to the community, and possibly the world.

*In Britain, 11% of prisoners are Muslim in contrast to 2% of all inhabitants.

*In the Netherlands 20% of adult prisoners and 26% of all juvenile offenders are Muslim in contrast to the 5.5% of all inhabitants.

*In Belgium, Muslims from Morocco and Turkey make up at least 16% of the prison population, compared with 2% of the general populace.

The problem of depression and serious social consequences developing from the high rate of Muslims in prison has been documented for a number of years. In 2005 it was reported that this is a serious issue because the prisons are becoming a breeding ground for terrorists.


Also the prisoners in the UK convert to Islam for "bigger gang protection", see another January 2009-article on this blog:
