Profile: 'Jihad Jane' from Main Street
BBC ^ | March 11, 2010

Posted on 03/11/2010 6:23:15 AM PST by nuconvert

The blonde middle-aged woman apparently raised no concerns with her boyfriend or her neighbours on Main Street, Pennsbury, Philadelphia.

But online she had allegedly agreed to kill in the name of holy war, believing her European looks would allow her to blend in among Swedes as she homed in on her target.

Colleen LaRose, according to a US court indictment, posted messages online under the name Jihad Jane, expressing her desire to participate in jihad, or holy war.

Arrested in October 2009, Ms LaRose had exchanged emails over 15 months to recruit fighters for "violent jihad".

Her activities apparently came as a surprise to her boyfriend Kurt Gorman, whom she met in 2005.

she was "desperate to do something somehow to help" ease the suffering of Muslims

You know she voted for the usurper.

They'll use her to continue to hassle grandma at the airport.

1) Loathes Capitalism
2) Suffers from BDS
3) clueless to women being treated like cattle in the muslim culture
4) a one time code pink supporter
5) voted for you know who in 2008(HINT: not McCain)

Listen up all Freepers; this story portends an extremely dangerous new phase in this country; this gives the Evil the excuse it needs to further harass and intimidate whitey in the U.S. on the grounds that the paradigm of the “terrorists” has changed. They will now attempt to conflate anyone, particularly white, non-liberals, with the term “terrorist”.

I heard this gut wrenching story too!

"...it's no longer possible to say who a terrorist is or even to say that it's someone so dramatically different from ourselves."

Don't look in the mirror Mr. American, you might be looking at a terrorist! And certainly don't trust/report on your neighbors. But never fear, your government, with the aid of frequent consultants like Georgetown University professor: Bruce Hoffman will figure out clever ways to protect you from yourselves.

She committed civilizational treason by converting to Islam. All else follows accordingly.

That ring leader in Yemen probably has a number of jihadis trawling the internet chat rooms looking for stupid or vulnerable or America hating people like this Jihad Jane. The jihad is a murder cult, you can learn something about it by looking at how other cults work. If you remember back to the seventies or eighties there were a number of cults that were recruiting new members. They would choose people who were unhappy or lonely, then invite then to the cult where they would surrounded by instant love and acceptance by the cult members. The new recruit would feel like at last this is what I have been looking for all my life and would join the cult.

I can see these jihadis going on to chat rooms and making friends with some of the posters looking for any vulnerabilities or anti-American, anti-Jewish sentiments that they may have. Then they could probably start introducing them to the glories of the religion of peace maybe acquainting them with the Yemen svengali’s website. The Yemen svengali would weave a tale of woe of the many injustices done to the poor muslims by all of those bigoted infidels. After reading this stuff for months, complete with fake graphic pictures of cruel acts committed against muslims, these recruits are convinced that the muslims are the victims of hate crimes and injustices. I'll bet the Yemeni svengali has dozens if not hundreds of recruiters on the internet.

Maybe some good Americans can go on to popular chat rooms and play dumb and vulnerable to see if they catch any jihadi fish.
