Large Number of U.S. Citizens Becoming Radicalized Muslims while in Prison

Worries about violent offenders newly released from prison being “radicalized” or inducted into fundamentalist Islamic jihadist movements have begun to surface, as this video of a House Homeland Security Committee meeting shows.

The danger that a previously violent offender could be targeted, recruited and indoctrinated into this dangerous movement is very real. Such offenders, who have already committed violent crimes in the past, could easily commit them again, either on United States soil or elsewhere in the world, possibly fighting U.S. military forces.

The belief that sharia law — God-given laws according to the Islamic religion — trumps U.S. Constitutional law gives license and pretext to these violent offenders to carry out such violence again as in most cases they’ve already shown an obvious disrespect for the civil laws of the nation. It’s critical that any instigators and systems by which these offenders are recruited into Islam while in prison be combatted and dismantled in the near future.
