    Dan,

    Thank you for this story. There seems to be a growing trend of white males converting to Islam while in prison situations. A few years back, I had an encounter with a radical Muslim named Khalid. Khalid was an Irish catholic that converted to Islam in a Saudi Arabian prison. It seems that a lot of people raised in secular non-religious households are looking for absolutes in life. They are in essence rebelling against post-modern self-styled spirituality. When you add that to growing disenchantment against U.S. foreign policy, the result is a potential goldmine for Islamic evangelists.
