Bear in mind that the prison system is a hotbed of jihad recruitment and widespread conversion of inmates is a worldwide problem. An inordinate number of jihad-terror plots involve Muslims converted to Islam in prison.
If these activities were treated like acts of war and not “law enforcement” issues, these absurd and ridiculous rulings would not be possible. This unconscionable and feckless decision is the poisonous fruit of the denial of jihadic doctrine and its objectives.
The savages who filed a long-running and expensive legal suit (funded by the kuffar taxpayer) against the British penal system were guilty of, among other things, a WMD plot with RICIN, a plot to launch suicide attacks on flights from Heathrow to America and Canada using liquid bombs made of hydrogen peroxide hidden in soft drink bottles.
“Islamic terrorist prisoners who were segregated for religious bullying of other inmates win taxpayer-funded challenges at the Supreme Court that it was unlawful,”
By Richard Spillett for MailOnline, July 29, 2015, (thanks to Todd):
Algerian who murdered policeman was kept away from others in 2010
Terrorist who plotted to blow up airliners was segregated at another prison
They claimed their treatment was unlawful, but lost initial court bid
Supreme Court ruled it illegal to keep them alone for more than 72 hours
Two high-profile terrorist prisoners who were segregated from other inmates for extended periods have won challenges at the UK’s highest court.
Five Supreme Court justices in London allowed appeals by Ricin plot conspirator Kamel Bourgass and ‘liquid bomber’ Tanvir Hussain.
They were alleged to have intimidated and bullied other inmates over matters of religious, and authorities in their respective jails had considered it was necessary to separate them from other prisoners ‘for good order and discipline’.
In March 2012 the pair failed to persuade appeal judges that their treatment was unlawful.
But the Supreme Court unanimously ruled today that their segregation was not lawful after initial periods of 72 hours.
The judges granted declarations in each case that the ‘appellant’s segregation beyond the initial period of 72 hours was not authorised, so was unlawful’.
The pair, whose long-running and expensive legal case has been funded by the taxpayer, had also raised human rights issues, but that aspect of their case was rejected by the Supreme Court.
Bourgass, an Algerian, is serving 17 years for conspiracy to commit public nuisance by using poisons or explosives in relation to the 2002 Ricin terrorist plot.
He is also serving a life sentence for murdering Detective Constable Stephen Oake, 40, with a kitchen knife during his 2003 arrest at a flat in Manchester.
He injured four other officers during that attack and is serving sentences for attempted murder of two officers and wounding a third.
Hussain was one of three men convicted of a plot to launch suicide attacks on flights from Heathrow to America and Canada using liquid bombs made of hydrogen peroxide hidden in soft drink bottles. He is serving life with a minimum tariff of 32 years.

hile detained at HMP Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire, Bourgass was segregated from March 10 2010 until April 22 and again from April 23 until October or November of that year.
The judge said today: ‘He was notified by the head of security at the prison that intelligence suggested that he held extreme views, that he exerted a significant influence over other prisoners, and that “we suspect you of being linked to threats to other prisoners”.’
Senior Judge Lord Reed said: ‘Bourgass was locked in his cell for 23 hours a day, and was denied association with other prisoners. He was allowed out of his cell for exercise, which he took alone in a caged area.
‘He was unable to participate in activities which involved association with other prisoners, such as work, education and communal religious services.’
Hussain was segregated at HMP Frankland in County Durham from April 24 2010 until October 2010 after he attacked another inmate following a row about food.
Lord Reed said: ‘The Intelligence information also linked Hussain with the ‘conditioning’ of segregated prisoners who were susceptible to manipulation.
‘Three such prisoners had informed segregation unit staff that they had changed their religion from Christianity to Islam, having been converted through their cell windows by another prisoner.’
The judge added: ‘Intelligence suggested that Hussain was preaching Islam through his cell window to others in a determined attempt to convert non-Muslim prisoners to his own interpretation of Islamic ideals.
‘There was concern that his interpretation of the Quran was in line with his terrorist beliefs, and that the promulgation of his ideals had the potential to cause serious disruption both in the segregation unit and in the general prisoner population.’
