PJ Media's Simon: US Prison System Breeds Jihadists

By    |   Monday, 29 Sep 2014 03:33 PM

America's prison system is a breeding ground for jihadists, according to Roger Simon, co-founder and CEO emeritus of conservative news and commentary blog PJ Media.

"We are literally creating jihadists in the walls of our prisons," Simon said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

His comment came in the wake of the arrest of Alton Alexander Nolen, an ex-con and Islam convert, who is accused of beheading a 54-year-old woman after being fired from his job at an Oklahoma food processing plant.

"Nolan clearly was a nutsy and violent guy with a very violent past. They gave him a justification within prison to be violent," said Simon, pointing to a 2004 study of prisons in New York State.

"It said there were 350,000 converts within our prison walls in New York state prisons alone and 80 percent of people who 'find faith' inside prisons go to Islam.

Something is seriously wrong here…. How we stop that is not going to be easy, but we better start or there's going to be a lot of Nolan's running around. They're probably already are."
