Inmates Bullied Into Converting To Islam ( UK )
Sky News ^ | 20 October 2013

Posted on 10/20/2013 10:04:42 AM PDT by george76

Sky News has learned that increasing numbers of British inmates are being bullied into converting to Islam while in jail.

...

Sky News spoke to one young woman who said her brother was being bullied by members of a Muslim gang, who were trying to force him into converting to Islam.

The woman did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals against her brother, who is serving a sentence in excess of 10 years in a high security prison in England.

She said: "He just looks like a broken man ... he's tearful on visits. I'm just really scared for him."

She also claimed the bullying had taken a more violent turn: "He's been physically assaulted. He's had black eyes.

"In the showers, he got threatened with a knife. He's not going to back down. He's not going to convert for anyone."

She added: "He just spends his time in hiding in his cell. He's got at least another five years to serve. I don't know how much longer he can hold out."

Official sources acknowledge forced conversions are a problem in the country's prisons.

How large the problem is remains unclear, as inmates are often afraid to report such intimidation for fear of reprisals.

Joe Chapman, a former prison officer who now acts as a prison law consultant, believes the problem is on the increase.

...

There are currently around 11,200 Muslims in prison in England and Wales.

That figure is about 13% of the total prison population and is far higher than in the wider community, where Muslims make up less than 5% of the population.

Well at least they are not making them put the St. George cross flag in their cell. That would be raaaacist.

My first thought: ‘Boy, heads would ROLL were this man being converted to Christianity!’

A pox on them all. Evil. Pure evil.

“That figure is about 13% of the total prison population...Muslims make up less than 5% of the (total) population.”

Gosh. Where have I heard figures like that before?

Those forced to convert aren’t going to be all that loyal to islam.

Islam insinuated itself into Black America through the prisons starting in the 1960s and 1970s. Black prisoners were sought out and naively bought into a racially targeted scam of huge proportions. Hate Whitey was the theme and irrationally that Islam was the antidote. Soon Islamic racists infiltrated communities as community “organizers.” Muslims have been and continue to be huge African slave masters and traders and murderers of Blacks, yet Blacks in America naively and foolishly choose to walk around dressed like them and even take Muslim names and give them to their children. Uninformed and naive, gullible, ludicrous and injurious to their sons and daughters is the only way to describe the “Black Muslim” converts of America.

I have to admit I have never understood this... How does a conversion to anything mean a thing if your forced into it?

I have the solution! They should make one or two of the prisons strictly for Muslims. That way they can intimidate and/or kill each other!

It makes no sense to Christians. But Mohammedism has only spread by force, and forced conversions.

An analogy might be to life under communism. Everyone was compelled to give lip service to the “gods,” i.e.,Lenin and Stalin, but few believed in them.

Yes, the only ones who today believe in Lenin and Stalin are those who never lived under their horrendous scheme. And these believers are pushing just that kind of scheme onto the people of the United States and doing so literally in cahoots with radical Islam, also out to force their scheme. The battle between those two groups will, of course, come.

It happens in the US as well. Farakhan and his promote Islam because it gets the con’s early release.

Most of them consider themselves Trotskyites more than Stalinists.

Pretense to impose a death sentence upon those who recant.

He should say they are trying to convert him to Christianity.

That would force the prison to put a stop to their behavior immediately.

Not part of the sentence. I’d point a finger at the British and say, clean up your jails, but we’ve got a lot of work to do cleaning up our own extra-judicial punishments from the jail system.

There was a psychological study a few years ago that showed that if people pretended as if they believed a certain thing when they really didn’t, they often ended up really believing it.

I’ve seen it happen in LARPing groups sometimes. A shy, insecure young woman, fresh out of an abusive relationship, joined a LARP where she pretended to be a strong, confident elven warrior every other Saturday. After 2 months that confidence crept into her everyday life, and suddenly she was nobody’s punching bag anymore.

Maybe the same thing happens with forced conversions? Sort of a variation on Stockholm Syndrome?

I think that’s a little different. They showed her that she “could” be, and she wanted it.
