This is an excellent article and makes a good but frightening read. What amazed me was the special treatment that Muslims have been able to get from the system. I can't imagine that any other group gets to meet without having a guard present or even nearby, for example.
They and their pressure groups are very adept at this. Note the constant references in the article to Saudi funding.
It happens in all environments. Last week I attended a conference of courtroom interpreters, where we were treated to an Arabic interpreter who told us that Muslims need special rules because of cultural reasons. Specifically, they should be allowed to confer with their interpreter (have ex parte conversations, in other words), rather than just speak and have the interpreter translate as they go along. This was to prevent cultural misunderstandings. Guess whose side the Egyptian-born interpreter was on. When the blind sheik shouted "Allah is great, victory to Allah," the interpreter translated it as "Good morning," something he had apparently agreed upon with the defendant. He even went up to the sheik after the trial and apologized to him for being unable to do more to help him. But this was permitted by the Court.
Somehow, Muslims have managed to achieve a level of institutional and media pressure that gives them an enormous advantage in our own country.

Thanks for the ping.
Yes, thanks to the ACLU, CAIR and the media, this recruitment of criminals by the Nation of Islam has been financed by our tax $'s and ignored.
One can only imagine the outcry and attack by the ACLU predators if we really investigated what has been happening in our prisons for close two decades.

Take a look at the Innerchange Freedom Initiative and support it, quite the contrast to this. This will give you a little more feeling what what Bush is talking about with "faith based initiatives".
