This being a blog dedicated to following the activities of North American extremists, I rarely mention Al-Qaeda or other radical Muslim groups. However, it appears that some Islamic terrorist groups have had some luck recruiting African-American Muslims within the prison system to their cause. A new investigation in California has unearthed links between a Pakistani national bent on attacking government and Jewish targets in the LA area with Jamat Ul-Islam Is Saheeh, a Muslim prison gang. If these links turn out to be substantial, it could greatly complicate homeland defense. For the first time, Islamic terrorists would be able to use native born American citizens to aid and carry out their attacks, something they have been unable to do in the past.
