Meet Jihad Jane: Philly Woman “Fatima LaRose” Recruited for Islamic Terror, Wanted to Murder European

By Debbie Schlussel

After 9/11, I warned of Islamic women involved in terrorist activity, not just in the Middle East, but on U.S. soil.  One of those is Colleen R. LaRose a/k/a “Fatima LaRose” a/k/a “Jihad Jane,” who recruited men over the internet for Islamic terrorism. She traveled to Europe, planning to carry out an “assignment” to murder a Swiss citizen in a way that would “shock” the non-Muslim world.

Read the indictment, unsealed yesterday. Note that, while today’s press release from the Justice Department, key portions of which are cited below, doesn’t say a thing about Islam or jihad or Allah, the indictment is replete with references to these. In fact, Ms. LaRose repeatedly says she desperately wants to do something for the “suffering Muslim people” and “in the name of Allah.” Funny how Eric Holder’s people left that out.  She also lied to the FBI and tried to knowingly transfer a U.S. passport that she stole from someone else.

Note also that neither the press release nor the indictment says how Ms. LaRose came to Islam, to which it appears she converted or much about her and her associates or with which Islamic terrorist group she was affiliated.

Colleen R. LaRose, aka “Fatima LaRose,” aka “Jihad Jane” [was charged in the indictment] with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, making false statements to a government official and attempted identity theft.

The indictment charges that LaRose (an American citizen born in 1963 who resides in Montgomery County, Pa.) and five unindicted co-conspirators (located in South Asia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and the United States) recruited men on the Internet to wage violent jihad in South Asia and Europe, and recruited women on the Internet who had passports and the ability to travel to and around Europe in support of violent jihad.

The indictment further charges that LaRose and her unindicted co-conspirators used the Internet to establish relationships with one another and to communicate regarding their plans, which included martyring themselves, soliciting funds for terrorists, soliciting passports and avoiding travel restrictions (through the collection of passports and through marriage) in order to wage violent jihad. The indictment further charges that LaRose stole another individual’s U.S. passport and transferred or attempted to transfer it in an effort to facilitate an act of international terrorism.

In addition, according to the indictment, LaRose received a direct order to kill a citizen and resident of Sweden, and to do so in a way that would frighten “the whole Kufar [non-believer] world.” The indictment further charges that LaRose agreed to carry out her murder assignment, and that she and her co-conspirators discussed that her appearance and American citizenship would help her blend in while carrying out her plans. According to the indictment, LaRose traveled to Europe and tracked the intended target online in an effort to complete her task.

“Today’s indictment, which alleges that a woman from suburban America agreed to carry out murder overseas and to provide material support to terrorists, underscores the evolving nature of the threat we face,” said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division. . . .

“This case shows the use terrorists can and do make of the Internet,” said U.S. Attorney Michael L. Levy. “Colleen LaRose and five other individuals scattered across the globe are alleged to have used the Internet to form a conspiracy to provide material support to terrorism, culminating in a direct order to LaRose to commit murder overseas. LaRose – an American citizen whose appearance was considered to be an asset because it allowed her to blend in – is charged with using the Internet to recruit violent jihadist fighters and supporters, and to solicit passports and funding. It demonstrates yet another very real danger lurking on the Internet. This case also demonstrates that terrorists are looking for Americans to join them in their cause, and it shatters any lingering thought that we can spot a terrorist based on appearance.”

I’m just waiting for Holder and his band of terrorist enablers (JaNo, BHO, …) to come out and give us EVERY detail about how they caught this muzzie. As you know, Holder and the rest of the dipsh#ts at the DOJ and DHS need to keep the muzzies updated on our latest surveillance techniques and covert operations.

Does she pattern herself after Tokyo Rose?

The situation is worse with Jihad Jane though — at least everyone knew that Tokyo Rose was an enemy agent. Here, the head of the Justice Department doesn’t understand that, although with another of her namesake predecessors, Hanoi Jane, many of the Democrats and a few Republicans didn’t understand that either.

“This case also demonstrates that terrorists are looking for Americans to join them in their cause, and it shatters any lingering thought that we can spot a terrorist based on appearance.”

Naturally, the Obama Administration just couldn’t leave out the defense of NOT PROFILING for terrorists. I don’t know about you, but I kind of think the hijab is a dead giveaway…

“… an American citizen whose appearance was considered to be an asset because it allowed her to blend in…”

Someone tell me how someone in a hijab or niqab (the “full ninja”), when not among her own kind, is able to “blend in”. I assure you, the woman in a niqab I saw walking to DC’s Union Station (a few blocks from the US Capitol) wasn’t blending in.

These stupid people do not realize that sabotage works both ways.

Idiots in Disguise on March 9, 2010 at 6:32 pm

Recruted for terror she was all right…BY THE CIA!

Bob Porrazzo on March 9, 2010 at 6:37 pm

********LaRose received a direct order to kill a citizen and resident of Sweden, and to do so in a way that would frighten “the whole Kufar [non-believer] world.” *********

I would like to know in what “way” the murder was planned that it would be so frightening… Inquiring minds want to know.

    “It demonstrates yet another very real danger lurking on the Internet.”

    I see muzzies collecting old cell phones from yard sales and laptops from the flea market. They are busy CREEPS.

CLOSE THE BORDERS AND DEPORT ISLAMISTS AND PUT THE ONES GUILTY BEHIND BARS FOR LIFE. THEY ARE A THREAT TO LIFE AND FREEDOM EVERYWHERE

connie on March 9, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Oh, do you know if they have had any luck catching those 26 Israeli assassins that poisoned and tortured that guy in Dubai?I heard two were loose in the USA. I didn’t see it anywhere in your “blog.”

Mary on March 9, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Mary, you must have some trouble looking things up. Debbie has already discussed this matter. Also, by your remarks, you do seem enthralled by terrorists on the loose, no?

    Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 9:30 pm

What religion is Bernie Madoff, The CEO of Goldman, and every other blood sucker that has ruined our economy? Just curious.

Mossad embarassed themselves in Dubai on March 9, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Hell, Mr. Madoff never car bombed anyone. Do you really think he is a good example to make your point with? Or, is money more important than lives to you. As for Dubai, how many investors did that government ripoff since 2008, if you want to bring that up. Just curious. lol

    Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Oh just stop it!

    You know that the TERRORISTS are ALL moslem followers of the false prophet and pedophile!

    And Dubai is sure robbing their investors…something about getting away with it because of sharia law.

    =================================================================

    No lack of big-time christian thieves in jail, too. Same with atheist thieves.

    The difference between these infidel thieves of many religious and non-religious backgrounds and the Muslims we are talking about is that the former were disobeying their religion’s laws when they carried out their illegal acts. Not so with Islamic terrorism.

    Now go out and get a brain.

    Shy Guy on March 10, 2010 at 12:14 am

      Shy Guy – I’d also like to add another difference between us and these lying, cheating, stealing arabs and muslims. If an American commits the crime of ripping off its investors, we try (ha, ha…)to prosecute them and dole out the ‘appropriate’ punishment. In arab / muslim countries, they applaud these larcenists for ripping off the west.

      We should rip off the middle east by paying them only pennies on the dollar for their petroleum products.

      Jarhead on March 10, 2010 at 11:15 am

What a name! I have to admit I LOL’d when I heard the news say JIHAD JANE. I immediately though, she’s the female version of “GI JOE”

jr on March 9, 2010 at 11:00 pm

Good work Debbie! There are plenty of people across the whole world right now that are waiting for real reporters like you to bring the news and their numbers are swelling. We have these Jihad Janes because we have mostly liars in the Media. The real truth is that Islam is no more a religion and Mohamed no more a prophet than say Jim Jones, Charles Manson or Adolf Hitler. Not very long ago, this was still common knowledge.

defending yourself against american imperialism and forced slavery is the right of every person the world over.

When the Nazis invaded poland they found a pole who would cooperate so placed him in power the Americans did the same in iraq and afghanistan the found a corrupt Iraqi and a corrupt afghani and the put him in power only an idiot would believe that iraq and aghanistan had free elections if the election can be fixed in America then whats Iraq or afghanistan.

MrQ on March 10, 2010 at 6:42 am

Don’t we have lawyers in the DOJ that can defend her against the evil Americans, while other lawyers in the DOJ are trying to prosecute her?
Eric Holder personifies the words “Trust us, we are the government and we are here to help you.”.

Michael on March 10, 2010 at 9:28 am

MrQ seems to be an expert on WW2 history. Except that the Germans did not find a Polish quisling to govern the country. They didn’t want even a Polish puppet govt in any case. They governed the country directly. That’s about the extent of your knowledge and understanding of history and world affairs.

As to slavery, the Arabs and other Muslims were notorious slavemongers, slave exploiters, slave traders, enslavers, slave raiders, etc. But, let us give the devil his due. The Arabs were equal opportunity enslavers. They took slaves from Black Africa, from Eastern Europe, from India and in Western Europe, from Spain, Italy, France, even Britain, Ireland and Iceland [look up the Sally Rovers]. Millions of foreign workers are treated almost as slaves [or simply AS slaves] in the kingdom of saudi arabia and the Persian Gulf emirates. But MrQ wants to believe that Jihad Jane was against slavery.

Eliyahu on March 10, 2010 at 10:12 am

It looks like Eric Holder assumes terrorism suspects ARE ALWAYS Muslim. What a raaaaaaaaaaaaaacist.

ddhinnyc on March 10, 2010 at 11:53 am

All I have for Jihad Jane is three letters…

CIA!

Just you wait…there will be info her and her ties to the CIA who stage terror attacks in the name of the NEW WORLD ORDER AND AN END TO AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY!

Bob Porrazzo on March 10, 2010 at 12:21 pm

Frankly, Mary, I think it was a waste of 25 out of 26 Israeli’s in Dubai. We could’ve used the other 25 elsewhere, taking away the human garbage that wrecks havoc with a decent life.

esther on March 10, 2010 at 12:57 pm

I hope this BITCH!! ROTS IN PRISON..

Teresa on March 10, 2010 at 3:51 pm

As for the that traitorous bitch? get rope and a porkchop.

Drakken on March 11, 2010 at 12:03 am

I am LOL @ the pedophile comment.

Because Mary was between the ages of 12-15 which in this day and age would still make a pedophile. And of course Joseph was much older (per custom at the time).

But now as far as being impregnated by God, well, that’s Jesus right? So Jesus impregnated his mother? Isn’t that incest?

Anyhow people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

We could also discuss the Talmud? I’m sure we could find some interesting things in there?

I also agree with Raymond that I don’t see how she can blend in with that look. She should probably check out “What Not to Wear.”

American Girl on March 11, 2010 at 8:09 pm

This “terrorist’reminds me of debbie schlussel so much wanting to prove her point that islam is evil that she started working for the cia sub group Al qaeda.
By the way she is not the only “convert”there are more ” ex”zionists tat work for al qaeda

Hi on April 30, 2010 at 4:27 am

The pedophilia concern about Islam is not abstract. Child marriages are pedophilia.

Terrorist computers have frequently been found containing child pornography. Many jihadists have been buggered by their trainers before jihad-genocide bombings and attacks.

The dominance of little, vulnerable children turns on jihadists who enjoy dominating ‘others’ and force them to ‘submit’. Many hadiths refer to Mohammed sucking the tongues of little children.
