Skip to comments.France’s problem: up to half its prisoners are Muslim and the jails are a hotbed for radicalization

The 27-year-old man photographed in 2009 seemed to represent hope springing from Pariss desperate suburbs. Part of a work-insertion program, he was about to meet then-French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who was trying to combat high youth unemployment....
The man was Amedy Coulibaly, who was killed Friday after seizing hostages in a Jewish supermarket in Paris, an attack he claimed was in support of the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq & Al-Sham. A close associate of Said and Chérif Kouachi, the two brothers who attacked the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo Wednesday, Coulibaly is a symbol of the huge challenges lying ahead for France....
Coulibaly befriended Chérif Kouachi around 2005 when they were imprisoned in Fleury-Mérogis, south of Paris. Kouachi had been arrested as he prepared to leave for Iraq to join insurgents battling U.S. forces.
In prison they met Djamel Beghal, who was serving a sentence for a plot to bomb the U.S. embassy in Paris. Beghal would become something of a mentor, and in 2010 all three were arrested for a plot to break another jihadi, Smain Ait Ali Belkacem, out of prison....
In 2013, Manuel Valls, French interior minister at the time, spoke of the enemy within after it emerged Mohamed Merah, who killed four Jews and three soldiers in Toulouse in 2012 before being shot by police, had become radicalized while jailed for theft.
They start with petty crime, move on to drug trafficking, sometimes prison, leading to conversion to radical Islam and hatred for the West, Mr. Valls, now prime minister, told Le Parisien. There are several dozen Merahs in France today. Not all of them take action, but we have to guard against it.....

They should rethink their ideas about the death penalty.
repatriate all Islamists to Algeria.
LePen wants to bring back the death penalty.
And he was only a friggin’ forger!!! The French knew how to handle crooks at one time...they ought to bring back the guillotine for terrorists!
I need to watch that movie again, one of my all-time favorites.
Good idea; frankly it would eliminate half the terrorists in prison, and it would cut down on expenses and cell space. A win-win situation in all.
If they aren’t citizens, they don’t have rights to welfare or to stay in a French jail. Back to their homeland, REAL homeland and whether they like it or not.
I support Le Pen 100%, that is their best hope.
I read the original book on Devil’s Island: http://www.amazon.com/Escaped-From-Devils-Island-Guillotine/dp/B001JYPMQ8 , the inspiration of Papillon, that’s the way it was.
France should tell them obey our laws or send them off to some of their colonial territories. French Guyana.
Offset the Muslim population in France and bring in Buddhists from Southeast Asia, even China. A whole lot of those Hmong are in France, I watched a Miss Hmong France youtube video. I feel a bit bad that they have to go through this rubbish as well.
Kill them all! Let God sort them out!
So it’s very similar to here?
You dont want them in French Guiana, thats where the launch base is !
Devils Island is all tourist now, and the old prison at st. laurent du maroni is a museum. But they still have the guillotine on display....
Sooner or later, deportation is finally going to be recognized as the only fix to this.
The radical ones have to go. It’s that simple.
Frankly, there are many sleepers out there too, who will be upset when this happens and take negative actions.
IMO, this is the way it’s going to be. They can kid themselves all they want, when our elected officials start being the targets of these people, and they undoubtedly will, perhaps they’ll wake up and admit who is causing all the trouble, and do something about it.
Who is a terrorists prime target?
Well, first it’s massive numbers of the populace. It’s also going to be political figures. That’s the way it works with these people.
The first thing the French need to do is what Netherlands has done and say “No Jihadis allowed back in the country if they go fight in Syria/Iraq/Yemen and anywhere else”. (I think I have this right, Netherlands brought up the legislation at least)
Stop third world immigration to ALL Western nations & that would be a start.
Would be a start
100 down, 6 million to go
Separate prisons for Muzzies only. Boiled pig snouts, pig ears and pig hooves only for their food.....breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pig pictures everywhere. Snorting sounds over the intercom, day and night.
Just venting....I know they have their rights...but it is fun to imagine!
