Hamas fundraising in UK jails

An official investigation of Islamist radicalization in UK jails has revealed that the senior level of the prison service approved having Muslim prisoners fundraise for a problematic organization, which is funding Hamas terror attacks against Israel.

Muslims jailed in at least four prisons were encouraged by Muslim chaplains to take part in sponsored fundraising activities for the terror-related group, according to the official probe that found top-level failings at the National Offender Management Service (Noms).

The groups that prisoners were allowed to raise funds for included an organization connected with Interpal, a UK charity allowed in Britain but banned in the US and Israel for its funding of the Hamas terrorist organization, reports The Times on Wednesday.
