    The world’s deadliest terror group issues a pancake recipe THE IS agency for women, has launched a ‘cookbook’, explaining how to keep jihadists happy and fulfilled by making pancakes after a day of fighting. The agency known as Al-Zawra that “prepares sisters for the battlefield for jihadists” has been dubbed a “finishing school” for young women hoping to wed militants. In a step-by-step guide, published by Al-Zawra, the recipe calls for one egg, four tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of oil, 4 tablespoons of salt, one cup of milk and one cup of flour.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Maryland teenager from Pakistan is being held in U.S. custody on terrorism charges, accused of soliciting funds and recruits to help a Pennsylvania woman known as Jihad Jane, two people close to the investigation confirm. Juvenile charges filed last month accuse the 17-year-old of helping Colleen LaRose support overseas terrorists she had met online, they said Friday.

    When one considers all of the people and places in the West targeted by transnational jihadists over the past few years, iconic targets such as New York’s Times Square, the London Metro and the Eiffel Tower come to mind. There are also certain target sets such as airlines and subways that jihadists focus on more than others. Upon careful reflection, however, it is hard to find any target set that has been more of a magnet for transnational jihadist ire over the past year than the small group of cartoonists and newspapers involved in the Mohammed cartoon controversy. Every year...

    Ireland is a hotbed of Islamic extremism. Shocking, right? Of course it is. However, that's the view of Imam Ali Al-Saleh, who is the head of Ireland's biggest Mosque, the Islamic Cultural Centre in Dublin. Al-Saleh said many of the extremists came to Ireland as asylum seekers and now their children are becoming adults, taking over university societies, brainwashing other students. These "indigenous" extremists are being bolstered by students from the Middle East. This may explain why American Jamie Paulin-Ramirez came to Ireland after she told Colleen LaRose (aka Jihad Jane) in an e-mail that she would like to join...

    PHILADELPHIA—A Pennsylvania woman pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal charges that she conspired to wage jihad abroad, including a plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose work enraged Muslims. Colleen LaRose, who prosecutors say used the nickname "JihadJane" on Web sites including YouTube, made her first courtroom appearance since a U.S. indictment against her was made public last week. At a brief arraignment hearing, the 46-year-old Pennsburg, Pa., woman was led into a courtroom packed with media, handcuffed and wearing a green prison suit and orange shoes, her blond hair styled in cornrows.

    I have been somewhat reluctant to write about my encounters with Jihad Jane/Fatima LaRose because I have come to the conclusion that notoriety was exactly what she was always after, probably having given up on respect or happiness long ago. She struck me as someone whose entire life was one big, desperate cry for attention and help. It never occurred to me that she was actually dangerous, just a pathetic wannabe who wanted to be accepted by other Muslims suffering from teenage angst. I was wrong. I was never a member of the Smackdown Corps, just someone with a YouTube...

    Evil is not a color. It has no particular religion nor creed, nor style of dress, nor gender nor geographic home. Evil is an equal opportunity employer. One hopes we learn at least that much from the adventures of Jihad Jane. That, according to federal prosecutors, is the name Colleen LaRose used when she went online to say how “desperate” she was to do something to help Muslims. That desperation allegedly led her deep into the shadowy world of fundamentalist extremism. LaRose, prosecutors say, used the Internet to recruit would-be terrorists. She allegedly sought to kill a Swedish artist who...

    According to experts, the belief among some Muslims that the US singles out Muslims and wages war on Islam specifically are to blame for the radicalization of homegrown, American terrorists like Jihad Jane and her newly exposed comrade, Jihad Jamie. Both women—Jihad Jane, aka Colleen LaRose from Pennsylvania and Jamie Paulin-Ramirez from Colorado—are only the latest cases of homegrown terrorists operating domestically, but they're part of a larger rash of a recent uptick in the number of Americans or legal, US residents who blend in to US society...only to secretly pursue anti-American, terrorist activities. So what exactly is their problem?...

    As we are reeling from the revelation of yet another attempted plot to assassinate Lars Vilks for his cartoon image of Mohammed as a dog, the media would have us believe that such “radical” and “extreme” violence is something new – something that has evolved in Islam over time.  Conversely, according to IslamWatch, "Muhammad's life is a testament of ceaseless raids and plundering expeditions of highway caravans and waging wars against the infidel" in which "he himself had orchestrated more than one hundred raids, plundering expeditions and wars."  In the days of Muhammed, groups of men required to meet...

    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...

    “Silence is no longer an option.” That was Jane Fonda’s explanation for coming out of her supposed protest retirement and joining the anti-war radicals who converged on the nation’s capital last weekend. Fonda’s conscience had apparently been tormenting her about the U.S. trying to save Iraq from radical Islam -- and so she could stay quiet no longer. In her speech to the anti-war crowd, Fonda championed American defeat in Iraq and compared the war to Vietnam, condemning what she called America’s “blindness to realities on the ground.” Fonda, of course, exhibited tremendous perception of “realities on the ground” three...

We were disgusted when she became a revolutionary and a communist sympathizer who sat on North Vietnamese anti-aircraft guns and gave aid and comfort to our enemy. Now Hanoi Jane has become "Jihad Jane," and she has decided that the terrorists of the world who cut off people's heads and blow themselves up to kill innocent men, women and children are not as bad as the Americans...

    Lucky old America.

She has not taken a stand on any war, she says, since Vietnam when she famously - or infamously, depending where you stand - hoisted herself atop a big fat north Vietnamese gun and smiled prettily for the cameras. But enough is enough of the subsequent silence, so she has announced to cheering throngs that she is to take a bus tour right across...

Sometimes I decide a course is too deserving of attention to keep it within the confines of North Carolina.

    Prof. Jane Christensen and her disciples are furious I questioned her conspiracy theories about 9/11. Jihad Jane Attacks Frontpage Writer By Jon SandersFrontPageMagazine.com | May 10, 2005My Frontpagemag article about Prof. Jane Christensen's course at N.C. Wesleyan College, which uses conspiracy mongers' websites to argue that the U.S. government attacked its own citizens Sept. 11, brought upon me the most extreme--and telling--denouncements imaginable from the professor, her websites and their acolytes. I have been accused of everything from lying to collaborating with the CIA or the Bush administration, and not above suspicion of communism, of Trotskyism, of being a "neo-con," of...

    North Carolina Wesleyan College defends the prof who said, "the 'Holocaust' was the greatest hoax of all" -- and told me to f--- myself! The Reign of Jane has Churchill Looking Sane By Mike AdamsTownhall.com | May 4, 2005When I was in grammar school there was a kid on my block named David. He often tried to make others look like idiots by accusing them of saying things they never really said. For example, he used to lean over to people as if they were whispering something to him. He would then recoil in apparent horror exclaiming, "No, I will...

    Web site stirs up criticism By Natalie Jordan, Rocky Mount Telegram Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Web site of an N.C. Wesleyan College professor has drawn fire from bloggers, columnists and other Internet surfers regarding its content. Jane Christensen, an associate professor of political science at the college, has a home page on the college's Web site that displays links to anti-war groups, alternative ideas about the Sept. 11 attacks, political action networks and pictures of masked people carrying weapons. The site also has links to her syllabi that give full descriptions of the classes she teaches. The site...

    For weeks, I have toyed with the idea of writing a column about Ward Churchill. I just can't seem to muster the energy. Maybe it's because there are so many professors here in North Carolina who are every bit as crazy and incompetent as the now infamous Colorado professor. For example, there is Jane Christensen (http://faculty.ncwc.edu/Jchristensen/) who teaches at North Carolina Wesleyan College. One look at her webpage makes me proud to be a Methodist. It isn't really the picture of Jane holding an M-16 with a black hood over her head that bothers me. I am more bothered by...

    Professor defends Web siteBy GEORGE A. CHIDI, Rocky Mount Telegram Saturday, May 14, 2005 Not all of the e-mail Professor Jane Christensen has received in the last few weeks has been death threats, she said. "A lot of it is positive," said the N.C. Wesleyan College political science professor at the heart of controversy about a course criticizing the official accounts of the 9/11 attacks. "A lot of people have been very supportive." The herky-jerky revelations about Christensen's views emerged in online Web logs, also called blogs, linking back to commentary from Web sites such as Frontpagemag.org and Townhall.com,...
