These statistics are the obvious result of the fact that Islam inculcates an entirely different ethical system in its adherents than that found in countries where ethics are based in Judeo-Christian values. From the Washington Post:
...About 60 to 70 percent of all inmates in the country's [France's] prison system are Muslim, according to Muslim leaders, sociologists and researchers, though Muslims make up only about 12 percent of the country's population.
On a continent where immigrants and the children of immigrants are disproportionately represented in almost every prison system, the French figures are the most marked, according to researchers, criminologists and Muslim leaders.
"The high percentage of Muslims in prisons is a direct consequence of the failure of the integration of minorities in France," said Moussa Khedimellah, a sociologist who has spent several years conducting research on Muslims in the French penal system.
So long as discussion of Islam is off the table, it must be the fault of France. Perhaps if, as Daniel Pipes advocates, a synthesis between Islam the West can be found, then France could stop making what is allowed in Islam (like lying to, stealing from, or raping the kafir) illegal. That would put an end this problem of the unfair and disproportionate incarceration of Muslims. We just need to expand our tolerance of other cultures.
In Britain, 11 percent of prisoners are Muslim in contrast to about 3 percent of all inhabitants, according to the Justice Ministry. 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...
French prison officials blame the high numbers on the poverty of people who have moved here from North African and other Islamic countries in recent decades. "Many immigrants arrive in France in difficult financial situations, which make delinquency more frequent," said Jeanne Sautière, director of integration and religious groups for the French prison system. "The most important thing is to say there is no correlation between Islam and delinquency." ...
I see. Just like there's no correlation between Islam and terrorism, or Islam and dysfunctional societies, or Islam and the paucity of art and science, or Islam and Arab supremacism, or Islam and the prevalence of conspiracy theories, or Islam and the oppression of women, or Islam and...
Those figures are simply mind boggling.
Inside prison, the hatred and indoctrination just grows. They come out and poison society further.
There is in the soft attitude of generalised contempt for British society, and the self generated 'alienation', a criminality that arises naturally.
I would like to see a breakdown of what offences the Muslims are in prison for in the UK. I have a feeling it will break down fairly evenly into fraud, drugs, and sexual crimes.
