The Top Ten

1 ..Allah does not allow..to..take scraps from..a man..who is corrupt..immoral..denigrates..gift of clemency..he violates..principles of justice..caused..death of eight people..Governor Devlin..even the cost of freedom can be too high,I refuse your pardon!
2 ..this riot is not about getting smoking back,conjugal rights..not even about life in prison.It's about society taking responsibility..the whole horrid judicial system..we don't need more prisons,bigger prisons,better prisons.We need better justice.
3 I am black, I am a Muslim, and I am a man. And sometimes those three things, they war with each other.
4 I'm gonna try one more time with you,McManus..I am not saying that the men in Oz are innocent.I am saying they are not here because of the crimes that they committed,but because of the color of their skin,the lack of education,the fact that they are poor
5 This man[Huseni Mershah]is not our brother. He is our enemy. As of this moment, this man is cast out. No Muslim will speak to him, look him in the eye or acknowledge him... You [Mershah] wanted the death of another? Right now, you're dead to us all.
6 And can you[Rebadow]see into mine[soul],old man?..And what is there?..Yes,I am angry.I am angry at a society that cripples my people and infects their bodies..I am not.My illness is Allah's will and I accept the bad as well as the good that God gives me.
7 ..as the word went around that the Governor was gonna give somebody clemency,I saw a rift develop as each inmate wished himself..the chosen one.The longing to be free became as palpable as..food that we eat..it is a meal that I am being served right now.
8 How do I feel?I feel joyless.My brothers remain behind.Imprisoned,suppressed.I don't just mean my Muslim brothers,I mean every single man that will sleep in here tonight,that was cut off from everything that he loves.Cut off from his own self.
9 Simon [Adebisi], I don't want to destroy you. I want to help you change.
10 Quickest way to find the needle: burn the haystack.
