Authorities have captured a second "JihadJane" -- a Colorado woman who allegedly got mixed up in an international plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist after converting to Islam and marrying a Muslim man in New York, according to a report.
Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 31, was being questioned in Ireland along with six other people in the scheme to off Lars Vilks, who outraged many by depicting the prophet Mohammed as a dog in his drawings, the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday.
"I'm angry with her right now," said Paulin-Ramirez's mom, Christine Holcomb-Mott. "I'd like to just choke her. But I'm worried about her, too. I love my daughter."

I will bite that. As someone who worked in Ramat Gan and lived in Manhattan and Miami I guarantee I can tell tween an Ashkenazim Jew and an Arab or most Sephardi and an Arab...Yemeni Jews might be problematic.
I love how smart some freepers are.
Erik who only has to fight keyboard terrorists is a genius over profiling but Israel who has been fighting them since 1948 ...stupid.
btw....was that a DOUBLE-DOG-DARE Erik?
It’s definitely a small percentage of college players (UT included) who make lasting, successful careers in the pros. I agree 100% with your statement about the value of a college degree over a couple of years in the NFL. Lots of UT players who’ve played in the NFL for a few seasons end up selling cars at the various Austin dealerships.
Pretty good! I see that you are familiar with Marfa :) Btw, by using Marfa as an example I was not slighting the town. I lived in Midland for several years and one Saturday while reading the sports section I saw a picture that I wish I had saved. It was of a kid in his football uniform, all dirty from playing the first half of a game, marching in the band at halftime playing a big ole tuba. I always think of this photo as a reminder of small town Americana and how folks who live in these small towns have such great community spirit. I thought the photo depicted that spirit perfectly.
So, you must have super-powers that can identify what religion somebody belongs to!
Are you the guy at the carnival that also guesses people's favorite color?
You must be stupid Erik.
Good thing the Israelis are smarter than you.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I don’t want to get in the middle of a good FR dispute, but I think Israel depends more on the answers to verbal interrogation than racial identity. Not to say that isn’t a factor, but looking for Arabs would miss a lot of potential terrorists, and political disruptors. As Jane demonstrates. We should have figured this out back in the shoe bomber days. But we haven’t, we focus on the shoes. I do think the Israeli’s are way ahead of us on this, even though Reid got through their security too.
Nice to see someone who gets it instead of being a blathering blowhard.
You weren’t talking to a blathering blowhard.
The Israelis profile and for good reason regardless of what anyone on this forum and they can tell Arabs too from their own same as I can usually.
That sums it up.
I could care less about political correctness, diversity or discriminating against minorities if it helps save this nation from harm.
But that’s just me.
The sickness of bigot baiting and political correctness on this forum has always been troubling.
Reminds me of Bush having the mullahs over after 9-11.
I realize your sarcasm, but do you realize that if we keep getting terrorist attacks, your scenario may indeed come to pass?
Anybody who thinks they can identify a person's religion by sight is a blowhard, regardless of credentials.
What you mean by the sickness of bigot baiting and political correctness on this forum I haven't a clue, if it was addressed to me, feel free to explain, if just venting, no matter.
“I realize your sarcasm, but do you realize that if we keep getting terrorist attacks, your scenario may indeed come to pass?”
What’s wrong with defending ourselves from an enemy that is out to kill us by enacting laws that allow us to readily identify who our enemy is and where they are located?
Furthermore, if the cohort of enemy combatants are in fact the enemy’s civilian population (which in the war on terrorism that is exactly who the enemy is) does that not make the enemy’s civilian population a valid military target? In fact the PRIMARY target?
For a small fee son...I”LL TEACH U THAT!
I don’t think you are a bigot baiter at all but I know the other poster is and has a history of it.
I assume by your reply you do support profiling Middle Easterners and Muslims in the War on Man Made Disasters.
I never said we should not do more than that too. I hope we are and I suspect that once you get past TSA nincompoops that we profile too.
You have to admit we live in la la land of political correctness over this war (and anything else) where offending any sort of minority trumps the real goal of victory.
We refuse to label homegrown terrs what they are.
We refuse to acknowledge the tacit approval Hamas, Taliban, And Bin Laden etc have in many in the Islamic community worldwide.
We now have activist lawyers who support the goals of the terrorists in our DOJ accessing sensitive information all approved by Holder and Obama.
it goes on and on...
basically...we have lost our nuts
In World War 2, our bombing campaigns did not distinguish between soldiers and the civilians who supplied the soldiers. We drifted away from that in Vietnam and afterward. If it comes to an existential fight, we will go back to that doctrine.
“In World War 2, our bombing campaigns did not distinguish between soldiers and the civilians who supplied the soldiers. We drifted away from that in Vietnam and afterward. If it comes to an existential fight, we will go back to that doctrine.”
I agree with you that when it comes to a fight for survival we can and do justify to ourselves dropping the distinction between military and civilian targets, as we did in WW2.
If we acknowledge that and give ourselves permission to kill civilians should we condemn ourselves for it as we condemn our enemies for employing the very same tactics?
Isn’t it hypocritical to say it’s ‘justified’ when we kill civilians, but it’s ‘terrorism’ when our enemy does the same?
The other side has played by the rules of total war, while demanding that we play by the rules of civilized war. I would not mind at all if we gave them a taste of total war.
Basicly we agree. I think profiling is a necessity, probably best done verbally, but by well trained TSA nincompoops. The US isn’t Israel either in terms of the threat, for now, or the number of passengers or airports. IMO demographically the threat isn’t as much racial as religious. We’re not going to religion, and profiling for Arabs will likely target plenty of Sephardic Jews, Greeks, Italians, you get the idea. And miss what imo is the greatest threat, homegrown converts. If by Arabs you mean passengers traveling on a passport from an Arab country, they should merit attention if they’re blue eyed and blond haired. For the reasons you mention, the liklihood of demographic profiling is zero, but profiling conversationally, not just by TSA but at the ticket counter makes complete sense. And demographics is a clear part of that.
