Khalid Masood ‘Radicalised In Prison’ Before Westminster Terror Attack Says Former Friend

Post by Thorin on Sun Mar 26, 2017 10:09 am

Fears Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood was groomed for extremism in prison have heightened after it was claimed he turned to Islam behind bars. Counter-terrorism officers have spent days piecing together what led the 52-year-old to shed his birth name and later unleash carnage on the capital. Only two men - a 27-year-old and 58-year-old arrested in Birmingham - remain in custody after a hunt for accomplices saw 11 people held after raids across the country. 

It remains unclear whether the destructive assault which left four dead and scores injured was carried out alone or with support, reports the Press Association. 
A childhood friend of the man then known as Adrian Elms told The Sun newspaper he emerged as a Muslim after serving a jail sentence.
Mark Ashdown, 52, said: “When he first came out he told me he’d become a Muslim in prison and I thought he was joking.
“Then I saw he was quieter and much more serious.
“I gave him some cash-in-hand work for a few months as a labourer.
“He said he needed time to pray and read the Koran - something about finding inner peace.”
He added: “There were still flashes of the old Ade, but they were few and far between.
“I heard he’d split from his partner and got even more deeply into religion. But nothing could have prepared me for hearing his name on the radio.”

I already said this on another thread but on LBC talk radio they had prison officers calling in to tell the stories of the mass celebrations among Muslim (Islamic) prisoners, that kicked off after the attack on Friday.

He had been a Muslim for about 15 years... he had also spent time in Saudi Arabia as an English teacher (apparently)...

Yes this (the title) is what I read too.  Apparently he was some boring petty criminal called Adrian but after a spell in prison he converted his religion and changed his name to an Arabic one and left his long term partner.  


So I made the reasonable suggestion that prisons should be sorted, to prevent radicalisation - and Tommy asked me how. I don't know how and I don't want to know.  Laughing  -- it is not my job to think up HOW to sort propblems cos I'm not a gov minister, I'm not the one who gets  the equivalent of around £200K salary (when all the 'extras' and perks are taken into account)  - plus an index linked pension plus a peerage waiting for me upon retirement.

Muslims are the problem and Muslims in prison are the problem...

And the fact that they make up about 13% of prison population and act like an organised crime gang (while only making up about 3% of general population) is also a problem...

The lefties say it is wrong to keep prisoners locked up all the time and that we must let the mix and socialise inside prisons... so how do you stop Muslims being Muslims and trying to indoctrinate others to their evil beliefs...!?

Cos I bet the lefties would also be against having designated separate prisons that would be for Muslims only, to keep them away from normal people...!?

Maybe the lefties could just give the Muslims a good talking to and ask them nicely to stop being evil bastard and stop the indoctrination of others to evil...!?

Good luck with that!!!


lol!

I gave you some answers...


Stop putting Muslims in prison.

Only put Muslims in prison.

Stop putting anyone in prison.

Have designated Muslim prisoners only prisons and other prisons for everyone else.

Keep Muslims separate from others inside all prisons.

Keep all prisoners separate from each other and locked up all the time.

Give the Muslims in prison a good talking to and ask them nicely to stop being evil bastard and stop the indoctrination of others to evil...!?


Then if any of these/other ideas work... what's to stop Muslims outside of prisons from actively indoctrinating others to their evil beliefs!?
