BRUSSELSA terrorism trial starting here on Thursday highlights the difficulties Europes courts and prisons face containing the spread of jihadist ideology behind bars.
Mehdi Nemmouche, a 33-year-old Frenchman of Algerian origin, faces life in prison for allegedly shooting and killing four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum in May 2014. But once in prison, law-enforcement officials warn, terror suspects and convicts breed even more plots and spread their ideology to other inmates.
European prisons are fertile recruiting ground for new terrorists despite efforts in France, Belgium and other European countries to isolate dangerous and radicalized suspects in dedicated wards to prevent them from proselytizing. The perpetrators in several recent attacks were radicalized in prison, including Mr. Nemmouche and an alleged accomplice also on trial, say prosecutors. In Belgium, which has the highest per capita rate of returnees from Syria and Iraq in Europe, one third of 125 returnees were in prison in early 2018, according to the Egmont Institute, a Brussels-based think tank.
Prisons are one of the most important places of radicalization by now, said Guy Van Vlierden, a Belgian journalist who specializes in tracking foreign fighters. He said authorities struggle with the question of whether to isolate extremists or imprison them together, each posing its own risks.
European countries are taking prison radicalization seriously, said Gilles de Kerchove, the European Unions counterterrorism coordinator. France in 2017 created a special intelligence service for the prison system, which is monitoring some 3,000 people for signs of radicalization. In July, the country set up another surveillance unit to monitor radicalized inmates upon their release from prison. Other countries are experimenting with tailored psychological, social and religious counseling. But so far, Mr. de Kerchove said, nobody has the silver bullet.

nobody has the silver bullet.
Mine have copper jackets.
The only way to stop jihad is to kill jihadists.
There needs to be a euro-GITMO for these sorts of situations. But alas, they all said GITMO was mean so they’ll never do that.
Time to re-open Devil’s Island.
"Put all hope out of your mind, and masturbate as little as possible. It drains the strength."
Their victims are six feet underground. The murderers should follow suit as well, upon conviction, execution posthaste.
Terrorists flung out of a 30 story window stops terrorism
Prisons are one of the most important places of radicalization by now,
Also happening in this country. Muslim prisoners are doing their best to convert black prisoner to Islam. I also wonder why so many professional black athletes are now sporting beards.
Execute the SOBs.
“Whether to isolate extremists or imprison them together.”
Um, there are more than two options. I think the best option of many is a quick death penalty, since force is the only way to influence the emotional and unreasonable criminals in the community.
Our elite and the European elite subsidize Muslim terrorism in prisons. The deep state media can report on how bad it is in prisons but investigative reporters will not touch the state funded Imam in the prisons. GITMO is mean? Dont they have a $744,000 soccer court. The peasants should be happy to be taxed to provide such benefits.
They learn that jihadi religion in prison. Then they get out, eager to practice their religion.
How about the hangman's noose then? That works every time and there are no repeat offenders.
