Over the weekend, the story broke about “Jihad Jamie” a/k/a Jamie Paulin-Ramirez–the Colorado single mother who converted to Islam and hauled her young son to Ireland, where she married an Algerian Muslim, was allegedly part of the plot to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks Wilks.
Jihad Jamie: Same Old Story
What isn’t stressed in most news stories covering Jihad Jamie, however, is that Ms. Paulin-Ramirez’s step-father, George Mott–the one who is shown on TV interviews all over cable–is also a convert to Islam. And now he’s shocked–shocked!–that his step-daughter got curious, also converted, and became part of an Islamic terrorist plot. Plus, now, her mother is shocked–shocked!–at her daughter’s “stupidity.” Um, what about the mother’s stupidity in marrying a Muslim convert? Go figure. This is a messed up family.
But none of it is a surprise to me, nor should it be a surprise to you. Her story illustrates at least four things I’ve been warning you about on this site . . .
I’ve written about dummy after dummy like this–these stupid, lonely, and mostly desperate American women who look for something in their lives. And the only place these gullible, naive cretin-ettes can find it is with Muslim men who aren’t interested, but fool them and use them. In this case, it’s a 31-year-old overgrown child with a child of her own. How sad. But this is where America is, these days. Women want to feel important . . . even if their “importance” is in a murderous jihad. Sorry, but that’s the ultimate in feminism, whether Gloria Steinem admits it or not.
A few years ago, I wrote about a gushing People Magazine profile, glorifying these blonde chicks who convert to Islam. It told us of the “over-reaction” to the conversion, usually encompassed by the families of these women, who asked them if they were going to bomb someone or turned over their cellphone numbers to the FBI. In this case, had Paulin-Ramirez’s family done that, they would not have been over-reacting, but would have done their daughter a service, just short of kidnapping her and sending her to deprogramming. They asked her the same questions about whether she was going to bomb someone, and she responded, “if necessary.” Giant clue, parents. Giant clue.
The timing is interesting since we’re just days away from the celebration of the Irish holiday of St. Patrick’s Day. But as I’ve warned for several years on this site, while St. Patrick may have chased all the snakes out of Ireland, he didn’t chase out the Muslims. Islam, as I’ve noted for several years, is the fastest growing religion in Ireland. And like everywhere else, the Islamic community there is extremely radical. Like the U.S., the Irish government (and the rest of the UK) does nothing and sticks its head in the sand.
Given that, it’s no surprise that Ms. Paulin-Ramirez chose to head to Ireland and put her young son, a 6-year-old, in a radical Muslim school and that this kid told his grandparents that, at age six, he’s learning how to shoot, fight with other arms, and how to construct a bomb. Even if this kid is brought back to the states and rehabbed, he’s gonna be messed up forever.
Luck ‘o the Irish. And, sadly, our luck, too.
* “New” concerns about homegrown terrorists.
For more than a decade–since well before 9/11–I’ve warned about homegrown terrorists. I’ve noted that there is nothing about Muslims in America that is unique or different from Muslims anywhere else in the world. The constructs set up by the naysayers, who claim “our Muslims” are moderate, are phony. “Our Muslims” are exactly the same as “their Muslims,” but for critical mass, which they are fast achieving because we did nothing to stop that.
But what gets me isn’t just that obtuseness. It’s that since last week, when news of Jihad Jane a/k/a Colleen LaRose broke, we’ve been hearing about how authorities–“counterterrorism officials” and Homeland Security people–are worried about this “new” threat of homegrown terrorists ready for jihad. Huh?
“New concern”? Did they forget about the Lackawanna Six or the Muslims who trained in Pakistan and Afghanistan but were born in California and Washington State? How ’bout Adam Gadahn and John Walker Lindh? PUH-LEEZE. Anyone who’s been paying attention knows that the “threat” of homegrown jihad hasn’t been a threat for many years, but a reality. There have been hundreds of examples. They’re just discovering this?
And these are the people who are gonna “keep us safe”? Good luck with that.
* Nothing to see here.
I’m thinking of a replacement rap song for “Pants on the Ground” . . . “Heads in the Sand.”
This is the most important and disturbing part of all of this saga: that they let her go. Yup, Ms. Paulin-Ramirez is as free as a jaybird. They released here, despite the fact that Irish law allows authorities to hold suspects without charges for up to seven days. Yet, far less than that, they set this woman–who is connected with convicted terrorist Najibullah Zazi and indicted terrorist Jihad Jane a/k/a Colleen Larose–free. HUH?!
More head in the sand. I wonder how Guiness plus sand tastes. Apparently, the Irish counterterrorism people have a yen for it.
