Prison Pulls Certain Religious Texts

From the Washington Times:

Inmates at the federal prison camp in Otisville, N.Y., were stunned by what they saw at the chapel library on Memorial Day — hundreds of books had disappeared from the shelves.
The removal of the books is occurring nationwide, part of a long-delayed, post-September 11 federal directive intended to prevent radical religious texts, specifically Islamic ones, from reaching violent inmates. Three inmates at Otisville filed suit over the policy, saying the constitutional rights were violated and texts of all religions were affected.

If they’re pulling the Islamic texts, why not pull texts from other religions too? Most people would answer that question with “because the terrorists are always muslims,” and “Islam is a violent religion.” Does the Bible have any less violence?
