“Malcolm Moss, national chair of the Prison Officers’ Association, said: “We are seeing more and more Muslim gangs in our prisons. Often Muslims who go to prison are forced into gangs for their own protection. And that culture takes over a wing, takes over an area of the prison. We see it as a real danger, now and for the future of prisons.” — from an article here
Notice how Malcolm Moss, though he is not one of those denying the problem of the takeover of British prisons by Muslim prisoners, can’t quite state head-on what the real worry is.
For example, these Muslims who take over in prisons constitute a “real danger” — but not just, as Moss states, “now and for the future of prisons.” They constitute a danger, much more importantly, for all of British and, indeed, for the Western societies within which, as holders of British passports, they can now freely move and operate . After all, eventually most prisoners are released. And those who were Muslim to begin with, but perhaps did not take Islam quite to heart, have had a chance in prison to take it quite to heart. And what is more disturbing is that those who entered prison as non-Muslims, but accepted Islam in order to avoid being treated brutally by Muslim fellow prisoners, may — rather than simply slough it off as they would their prison garb, once they are again out in the world — come out as True Believers. Often what begins as an act of protective coloration ends up transforming the person who started out thinking he was merely making a temporary compromise in order to stay alive — and that means he, and others like him, will emerge as Muslims, but Muslims who even when they were non-Muslims were at war with society and its norms.
And for society that means ever more Muslims, and in this particular case, ever more Muslims who , even before their forced prison conversions, have committed crimes and, in the case of the prisons discussed in the article, may not just be guilty of a crime but even be hardened criminals. They have now accepted an ideology, Islam, that justifies, that supports, that even promotes, their taking of Infidel property, their rape of non-Muslim women (who “have it coming to them”), their general violence and hatred of the authorities, and the authority, of the illegitimate, in their eyes, because non-Muslim, state. Compare how differently they would behave had they, in prison, accepted Christ, taken the Gospel seriously, become born-again Christians. Which result is better for society, that is, for our non-Muslim society?
But the Infidel nation-state and its authorities persist in pretending that Islam is just one more faith. They do not stop to study it. They refrain from doing so for fear of what they might find out. They don’t want to know.
Let’s read again the testimony of a former prison official:
“It is non-Muslim prisoners” who are being “forced into gangs for their own protection.” The example given by a former prison officer was what was most frightening:
“They went along because they were intimidated. They genuinely weren’t of the Muslim faith,” she said. “I knew one lad quite well, who was approached by the radical Muslims and he changed. He was being controlled and bossed around and he wasn’t even allowed to look at me or speak to me.
“He just seemed very frightened all the time. He used to be forced to pray at certain times and he was even forced to grow a long beard even though he didn’t want to.”
And here is what Malcolm Moss offers as a “solution” :
“Mr Moss called for more Muslim prison officers to be recruited as part of an urgent effort to “face up” to the gangs.”
Here, you see, Moss suggests that the way to “face up” to the gangs is not for the authorities to “face up” to the natural attitudes and atmospherics of societies suffused with Islam – and if there are enough Muslims in a prison they can create, without being a majority, a society behind bars but “suffused with Islam.” No, he just wants to “face up” to the “gangs,” as if they do not have the texts of Islam on their side, so that the “real Muslims” – presumably, those “Muslim prison officers” – can refute the Islam of the gangs. And they somehow they will be able to deal with the situation if they are of the “moderate” Muslim kind, i.e., getting paid by the government, and therefore likely not to wear their anti-Infidel attitudes on their sleeves. How many such cases of two-faced Muslim officers have there been revealed in the Metropolitan Police, in London, for example, over the past few years?
But how will they deal with the situation? Malcolm Moss does not explain. Will they be able to quote from the Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira, or is it the more violent Muslim prisoners who have the texts, and the example of Muhammad, the Perfect Man, al-insan al-kamil, on their side? Does Malcolm Moss know? He would only know if he had looked into the matter – looked into it deeply, spent time reading, reading the texts, reading the great Western scholars of Islam (those who wrote before 1970, those who are not merely apologists for Islam as so many “experts” on Islam and on the Arab take – see John Esposito – are today). Has he bothered to read just a few books, such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Infidel and Nonie Darwish’s Now They Call Me Infidel and Wafa Sultan’s A God Who Hates and Ibn Warraq’s Why I Am Not A Muslim? No? No time to do so? Busy, busy, busy, worrying about a Muslim takeover of many prisons, but too busy to read and really grasp the Muslim view of Infidels, and of the Infidel nation-states in which they, those Muslims, have been allowed to settle? Something is deeply wrong here.
How will those Muslim officers be able to deal with the situation? How? By quoting what verses of the Qur’an? Sura Nine? Any of the more than 100 Jihad verses? By quoting from the Hadith? Perhaps offering the example of Muhammad, so meek and mild? Will more Muslim officers actually work to prevent proselytizing by Muslims among non-Muslims? Does it make sense, is it credible, to believe that Muslim officers will actively intervene to prevent Muslim prisoners from attempting to spread Islam, by veiled or not-so-veiled threats of violence? If they are Muslims, they too believe that Islam, that Total Belief-System, is the answer to everything. Why, for god’s sake, would anyone believe that they would put a stop to Muslim prisoners from offering – making an offer that can’t be refused – the “gift of Islam” or, where necessary, forcing it upon the unwilling?
What does Malcolm Moss really know about Islam? Or does he now know a good deal, but is fearful of fully expressing what he knows, becoming the mental equivalent of tongue-tied? His suggestion as to the solution is the hiring still of more Muslims. My god, how many Muslims are now reaping the bonanza of being on the payroll of security services all over the Western world, and how many of them actually deliver? How many in fact cannot be trusted, and are “part of the problem” as they attempt to influence their handlers, attempt to deflect attention from the scope, and real source, of the behavior of Muslims and their deep hostility — to the extent that they take Islam seriously — to non-Muslims, their laws, their authorities, their everything?
In the hopelessness of what Malcolm Moss, national chair of the Prison Officers’ Association, suggests as a “solution” — “hire more Muslim officers” — he demonstrates that even those who recognize, at long last, that there is a problem don’t really grasp its nature, what it comes from. He thinks, or suggests, that it is a matter of “bad Muslims” who can be dealt with by “good Muslims,” the role of “good Muslims” being played by Muslim officers who will now be hired. Does he have any understanding of what more Muslim officers will do to the non-Muslim prisoners and their morale? Will they feel safer? Will they report incidents of Muslim bullying to those non-Muslim officers, or begin to feel that even the guards are now in on it? And what of the Muslim prisoners? Will they feel that with Muslim guards they must now behave themselves, or will they feel, on the contrary, a sense of triumph, a sense that they are winning, a sense that still another vain concession has been made by the authorities of the Infidel nation-state that does not know what to do about them, because it refuses to confront, logically and soberly and sometimes even ruthlessly, the danger that grows and grows, in the prisons, and outside the prisons?
Hire “more Muslim officers”? Why, that’s like the British military being told it must hire more Muslims, must promote more Muslims so that they will, in turn, become more “British,” will identify with, sympathize with, the members of the armed forces by being in those armed forces – and even, some of them, deliberately encouraged and helped to rise prematurely high, in those same armed forces. Why, what better way to show that you trust Muslims, that you have no fear of them so that they, in turn, will not be hostile to you, than by making them privy to the corridors of power, military and civilian? Why not train Muslim pilots, and make sure that they are entrusted with the task of flying planes all over the place? What better way to earn their trust than to trust them? And to keep on, despite everything, trusting them and trusting them? Why not make Muslims part of the security details who guard nuclear weapons facilities? Why not ask Muslims to be present, to be part of “the team,” that will make plants to deal with “Muslim extremism” at home and abroad? Oh, about that last suggestion. It’s being tried right now, and has been for the last few years, all over Official Washington. In order to deal with the Muslim world, we ask advice from Vali Nasr (on Holbrooke’s staff), and from Hesham Islam (on Secretary England’s staff in the Pentagon). We find out about Islam from such people as Ingrid Mattson, or the Defenders of the Faith (Plausibly Moderate Division), such as young Rashad Hussain, and from dozens of others, “too numerous to mention.”
To appropriate a line recently made famous, how’s it working out?
