Summary
No religion is growing faster in Western prisons than Islam. In the United States alone, there are more than 200, 000 Muslim inmates. They are mainly black converts searching for an alternative to Christianity, which many reject as the slave-master's faith. Islam Behind Bars takes an unflinching look at the disruptive power of poisonous religious demagoguery, but also leaves the viewer with a better understanding of an intriguing new fact of the black experience in the West. The prisoners follow a path first made famous by Malcolm X, who went to jail for pimping and petty theft and came out a fiery Muslim preacher. He had discovered a strict religion which could bring discipline and dignity to men whose lives had been devastated by violence and drugs. In the aftermath of September 11th, authorities fear that terrorist organizations may recruit Muslim prison converts to attack the West. Richard Reid, the "shoe bomber" was probably recruited while in a British prison. The film shows that there are some imprisoned Muslims who find peace and a respect for all of God's creations in their new faith, and others who direct their anger at the West
