Yorkshire Ripper Set to Convert to Islam

Peter Sutcliffe

This story says much about Great Britain, the British prison system and of course Islam.

Current official estimates place Muslims at 5% of the British population, though many suspect the actual proportion is higher. But Muslims make up 20% of the population in maximum security prisons in the UK (in one it's almost 50%). That number has been rapidly rising but even so underestimates the influence of Islam at those prisons.

Peter Sutcliffe - "The Yorkshire Ripper" - was convicted of brutally murdering 13 women in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Some suspect him of additional murders.

From Jimmy McCloskey at the Daily Star:    
Yorkshire Ripper turns to Islam: Muslim inmates to protect Sutcliffe behind bars 
THE Yorkshire Ripper is set to become a Muslim after hardline Islamists offered to protect him in prison. 
Serial killer Peter Sutcliffe has already had death threats since he moved to HMP Frankland. 
And now Muslim gang members have offered to take him under their wing – but only if he converts to Islam. 
They told the 70-year-old monster that changing faith will also allow him access to a special diet. 
In addition, he will get more time out of his cell and the right to refuse certain types of prison work. 
Sources informed the Daily Star Sunday that Sutcliffe has faced daily threats to his life since arriving at the Durham jail. 
Inmates have also verbally abused and spat at him. 
Frankland Prison is regarded as one of the toughest in Britain. 
It is home to serial killers and some of the country’s most violent offenders. 
Four years ago, child rapist Mitchell Harrison, 23, was disembowelled by two lags inside the jail. 
Prisoners have told Sutcliffe the same fate awaits him. 
It is understood he was approached by a member of an Asian gang while being escorted back to his cell. 
One Muslim inmate told Sutcliffe he was a marked man in prison and would be dead within a month unless he had friends to protect him. 
It is understood that the gang has arranged for Sutcliffe to have a meeting with a prison imam – a Muslim cleric – in the next few weeks. 
The same gang also befriended serial killer Levi Bellfield, 48, who converted to Islam while doing time in another jail. 
He is now known as Yusuf Rahim. 
Bellfield, also a Frankland inmate, is serving a wholelife sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, 19-year-old Marsha McDonnell and Amelie Delagrange, 22. 
A source said: “HMP Frankland is ruled by gangs and you are either in a white gang, black gang or Asian gang. 
“If you are a child killer, rapist or a mass murderer, the only gang who are going to let you in are the Muslims but you have to convert to Islam.” 
Sutcliffe, who was convicted in 1981 of murdering 13 women and attempting to kill seven more, lost his fight to remain in Broadmoor secure hospital almost two weeks ago. 
He was sent to the facility in Berkshire in 1984 after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. 
But a health tribunal ruled last December that he no longer needs treatment for the mental disorder. 
His move to Frankland will save taxpayers around £250,000 a year. Sutcliffe, from Bradford, preyed on women in West Yorkshire and Manchester from 1975 to 1980. 
The beast, who worked as a lorry driver during his reign of terror, usually beat them to death with a hammer before mutilating their bodies. 
During his trial, Sutcliffe claimed that God had ordered him to murder his victims. 
The former gravedigger said the voice came to him from the headstone of a Polish man in a cemetery where he worked.
