The percentage of Muslims in prisons throughout Europe and the U.S. far exceeds their numbers in the general population of each country.

I have previously reported on the high percentage of incarcerated Muslims in non-Muslim countries, a percentage far in excess of their representation in the general population. For example, in France, almost 70% of the prisons are filled with Muslims although only 12% of the population is Muslim, in the UK, almost 12% of the prisons are filled with Muslims although only 2.8% of the population is Muslim, in Spain, almost 70% of the prisons are filled with Muslims although only 2.3% of the population is Muslim, in India, almost 40% of the prisons are filled with Muslims although only 11% of the population is Muslim.
Some readers may think this is just an anomaly, affecting only a few countries out of hundreds, or perhaps reflects the attitudes of an intolerant, Islamophobic culture. OK, let's take a society considered by many as the most tolerant of all nations: the Dutch. So are Holland's prisons over-represented with Muslims in their very open-minded, liberal, unprejudiced, unbiased nation?
The Washington Post, 29 April 2008, ... Prisons Filled With Muslims
Research by the Open Society Institute, an advocacy organization, shows that in the Netherlands 20 percent of adult prisoners and 26 percent of all juvenile offenders are Muslim; the country is about 5.5 percent Muslim.
Similar results can be found for another hundred non-Muslim countries which I will endeavor to cover in forthcoming articles.
So what is the point of all these articles? Just to bash Muslims? No, the point is that too many infidels are ignorant of the danger that Islam poses to civilization; that Muslims refuse to integrate, assimilate, and adopt the culture of the host countries they find themselves in. Instead they turn to crime or more dangerous hobbies. Not because they cannot find jobs or do not have stable family relationships:
Planck's Constant, Even [seemingly] Assimilated Muslims are Not Safe Muslims
... look at the terrorists of the July 7 bombings in London. They were not homeless, poor, uneducated, disaffected, alienated , previously-arrested, or recently arrived jihadists. No, they were your average, common, ordinary, British-born and bred, employed, educated, moderate Muslims living in middle-class homes. Two of the suicide bombers even had pregnant wives.
Yes, yes, yes - statistics may lie in a specific, targeted sample. However, it's tough to argue that it's a lie when it's true in every country, in every culture, in every geographic location, in every disparate society Muslims have immigrated to.
