Muslim Prison Populations in Europe

Much has been written in the UK over the past year highlighting the disproportionate representation of Muslims in the prison population; moreover, the deeply worrying phenomenon of Muslim gangs targeting inmates for conversion has been brought to light. According to the Labour Market Survey the UK had a Muslim population of a little over 2.4 million in 2008 out of a total population of 61.4 million, some 3.9% of the total. However, in that same year some 12% of the prison population of England and Wales was recorded as being Muslim.

Although these figures demonstrate the statistically higher frequency of criminality amongst the Muslim population in England and Wales, data from elsewhere is even more startling. A report in the Washington Post from 2008 stated:

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. In Belgium, Muslims from Morocco and Turkey make up at least 16 percent of the prison population, compared with 2 percent of the general populace, the research found.
These figures are bad, but they pale in comparison with those encountered within the French penal system:

As a matter of policy, the French government does not collect data on race, religion or ethnicity on its citizens in any capacity, making it difficult to obtain precise figures on the makeup of prison populations. But demographers, sociologists and Muslim leaders have compiled generally accepted estimates showing Muslim inmate populations nationwide averaging between 60 and 70 percent.
Bivouac-ID notes that more conservative estimates of the French Muslim prison population still place it at in excess of 50% of the total. As in the UK, French prisoners are targeted for conversion to Islam, with an estimated 400 Islamists proselytising within the French prison system in 2008. The current French population is estimated at 65.4 million with some 5 million French citizens being Muslim (7.6%). Neighbouring Switzerland too has a significant overrepresentation of Muslims within the prison system. For example, the overcrowded Champ Dollon Prison in Geneva reported that in 2009, 56.6% of its inmates were Muslim.

Clearly, there is a problem of Muslim criminality which manifests itself across the societies of Western Europe which have admitted a significant influx of Muslim immigrants. A small part of this disproportionate representation will arise from the fact that the Muslim populations are younger than those of the host societies’ average owing to the higher Muslim fertility rate. In the UK for example, there were an estimated 301,000 Muslims under the age of 4 in September 2008. We should therefore expect the bulge in the Muslim criminal population to grow even further in the years ahead.

Having provided a brief sketch of the size of Muslim prison populations in a number of European states, I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions as to what these statistics demonstrate. Do they illustrate the innate ‘racism’ of the host societies and the alleged relative economic deprivation of Muslim populations as the official explanations would have you believe; or, is it the case that they demonstrate the innate incompatibility of Islam with our societies and the contempt of doctrinaire Muslims for the kuffar?


  1. They're just carrying on the sacred tradition of Razzia (raids of rape and pillage against non-Muslims).

    Mohammed told his followers that the earth and everything on it belonged to Allah. Since everybody but Mohammedans were infidels or kuffars (non-believers), Allah has awarded their lands, property, women and children to the true believers. This provided the 'theological' justification for divinely approved criminality of every kind.

    Mohammed led the way by raiding caravans and raping captured women. He soon attracted an eager band of followers wanting to follow his example. This tradition of Allah giving the Mohammedans permission take whatever they like from the infidels continues to the present day.

    All their ever-growing demands are just asking for what they regard as rightfully theirs in the first place, and the infidels can expect no thanks for giving it to them. Living with Islam is about give and take - we give, they take.

    The 'ethical' principles of Islam are unlike those of any other religion.
    Murder, rape, theft, fraud, child prostitution etc are only viewed crimes when committed against fellow Muslims (the Ummah). Predatory attacks on infidels are OK, and have Allah's blessing when they are carried out as part of the global Jihad.

    Muslims dominate the British underworld, and control British jails where prisoners are forced to convert to Islam. Those converts who abandon Islam after release are followed up and killed for apostasy.

    Muslims are the main drug dealers in Britain, and use heroin not only to earn money for jihad, but as a weapon of war to destroy infidel societies.

    Islam is not so much a religion as an international criminal conspiracy. It has more in common with the Mafia than with Methodism. Like the Mafia loyalty to the mob trumps everything, and like the Mafia, once you've joined the only way out is death....

  2. Just seen this. I have recent police reports and office of statistics that show the prison population in Berlin is 90% muslim!

  3. Thanks for the information re the Berlin prison population Furor Teutonicus. I can well believe that the figure you quote is accurate. Are these statistics in the public domain?
