Well, this isn't surprising except to those who pretend not to see the facts of life before their eyes. The big majority of Youth criminals in Denmark are all Muslims too, and in several EU countries Muslims are more than 50% of the prison populations, like here in Spain. Why are people so bent on ignoring these facts? Islam breeds hate and violence toward non-Muslims. Anyone with 2 brain cells who has read Islamic scripture, including the hadith (the sayings and doings of Mohammed the massmurder, child molester, rapist, adulterer, slave owner, as well as having a harem of captured women as sex slaves who had to go around with their breasts exposed for the lustful eyes of this evil man), knows that Islam teaches hate and violence. The few verses that don't are the ones the Muslim apologists always drag out to show it is tolerant, but they know those verses were all cancelled out by the later ones. Allah, it seems, changed his mind quite a lot.

There are many Muslims who are good people despite their religion. Fortunately many of them haven't ever read the Qur'an, let alone the hadith etc.

Islam is the only 'religion' that doesn't teach the Golden Rule, except for fellow Muslims, and the only one to command the murder of those who leave it or criticize it and this is all evident in Europe with 54 million Muslims where there are whole zones now in cities taken over by sharia law where even the police fear to enter and native peoples are unwelcome, where rape by Muslims is high, Muslim violence against gays, violence against women not wearing head scarves, attacks on Jews and Christians attending church (offensive to Islamists - true believers), the killing of dogs, demands for Islam to be taught in schools - and more. And our leaders caving in to their demands out of fear of the violence they will unleash when their demands are not meant.

For anyone with any knowledge, these figures are surprising for being as low as they are - not that they are high.

Hopefully the inquiry will not be forced into PC BS and will point out the problems with allowing such huge immigration numbers from a belief system that opposes everything Western Values upholds. Time to get real.

Only 27%? When London's main mosque was caught on hidden camera teaching that gays should be killed and Christians and westerners are evil? Same with the Green St. mosque in Birmingham. And who is going to protect us? no one. We are being invaded by hostile forces and our governments dust off the welcome mat and give them homes and monthly stipends for preaching hatred against us all.

Yeah, I knew this would be misinterpreted and purposely so to advance the Islamophobia Gang here.

So here's the text of the story (because this rampant Islamophobia might have a whole lot to do with it):

More than a quarter of London’s prison population are Muslims, prompting urgent calls for an inquiry into what is happening in the justice system.

Official figures have revealed that record levels of Muslim people are serving jail sentences and that the numbers are still growing. Across England and Wales the proportion has risen from eight per cent a decade ago to 14 per cent now.

In London, the figure is an “astonishing” 27 per cent, which is more than double the 12 per cent of the capital’s population who are Muslim. In two prisons, Feltham and Isis, a third of the inmates were Muslim.

The data was obtained by Sadiq Khan, the lawyer and shadow justice secretary who is himself a Muslim. He told the Evening Standard that an inquiry was vital to explain why the increase is happening.

“What’s really worrying is the rise, year after year, in the number of Muslims behind bars,” he said, adding: “We need to know why that’s the case if we’re to stop this rising further, reduce crime and prevent people needlessly becoming victims.”

Half of the top 10 prisons with the highest Muslim populations are in London, including Belmarsh, where the percentage has risen since 2010 from 19 to 29 per cent, Brixton (24 per cent), Pentonville (28 per cent), Thameside (25 per cent) and Wormwood Scrubs (27 per cent).

Mr Khan accused the Government of sitting on its hands after a 2010 call by the Chief Inspector of Prisons for a National Strategy to deal with the growing numbers of Muslims behind bars.

He said: “Four years on and ministers have ignored this call. The Government is utterly clueless about what to do about this growing problem. This is a waste of human talent and a huge drain on the hard-pressed taxpayer.”

Higher offending rates is only one of many possible reasons why the prison population is higher for some groups of the population. Other explanations could be that Muslims are more frequently caught and prosecuted, or sentenced to longer prison terms compared with other offenders.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “We have already implemented many of the recommendations from the 2010 report.”


Further the luggage restriction going into the UK are because of a stupid bumbling police sting over some cell phones that was turned into a terrorist plot to bring down airlines against people who did not even have passports at the time. That's why there is such an imbalance and the commenters here show it even more.

Evil is indeed afoot and it masquerades as false compassion and supposed friends. :(

Unless a Prime Minister is elected to actually do something, England will be lost in 5 years.
These Muslims should not be in UK's jails, they should have been deported. Why is England supporting Muslim radicals?

"Islamophobia" is a word made up to make a critic of the ideology of Islam shut down legitimate criticism.

A phobia is an irrational fear, something which intimates a mental disorder. For the hundreds of thousands of people around the world that are daily injured, killed, have their property destroyed, driven off land by Islamists, this is about the furthest thing from irrational conceivable.

It's a bit like saying "electric-chair-o-phobia".

You just need bigger and better prisons.Then deportation You also need a strong active police presence in their ghettos of filth and crime.

Our thoughts too, Boods. Build more prisons - somewhere off the Outer Hebrides.....than can accommodate more than the 27% mooted here. Radical Islamists are at the root of all evil.....

@Boods: From Wikepedia: "A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure.[1] The term was originally used in Venice to describe the part of the city to which Jews were restricted and segregated." "Jewish quarters, like the Jewish ghettos in Europe, were often the outgrowths of segregated ghettos instituted by the surrounding authorities."
To top it off, in WWII, "Heinrich Himmler's issued a decree ordering the dissolution of all ghettos in the East and their transformation into concentration camps."

Lona, ghettos are an apt description of where Muslims congregate but they are self imposed. They move into an area and start harassing the locals until they sell up and a Muslim family buys their property. In East London there are 2 known areas one of which is a no-go police area, where other residents are attacked if they walk a dog or are not "modestly covered" so jeans or leggings are not allowed. They will attack a male who they consider to look gay.

Muslims born in this country are not learning British law and follow Sharia law instead. It is known that where large communities of Muslims move in then serious sexual crimes increase, Sweden and Denmark have stated this and supported it with statistics.

Anti-semitism is a now a modern-day claim thrown at people who object to the way Israel operates and to those who here on C2 who have an anti-Muslim/extremely pro-Israel agenda (aka the Islamophobia Gang here).

This Islamophobia Gang isn't much different than high-school style gossip & bullying but with far-reaching and more tragic consequences.

Fear-mongering has been used by governments for decades. We have to have an enemy to unite the people into supporting the fascist regimes. It's so 1984.

Dehumanizing people, and grouping them up so as to justify genocide has certainly been a western/European talent (which fanatical right-wing Israelites have taken to heart). For instance the Americas had indigenous people before anyone there spoke Spanish, but it was simple enough to call them savages since they didn't worship the same gods as the Catholic church which felt entitled to bequeath the riches and resources (including the slave labor) to favored nations.

But go ahead, claim superiority (it doesn't make it so). Eventually that god you fear so much will collect on your follies, exacting just payment.

Syd, if you weren't such died in the wool anti-Semite you would notice that anti-Semitism is on the increase and much of it is from the increasing number of Muslims. The articles and information are out there but you are so busy condemning us for Islamotruth stories that you fail to actually read them.
