Jihad Jane: American Woman Charged For Terror Plot


Despite the tangible threat Islamic extremism poses in the U.S., many Americans effectively disregard the issues as a problem relegated to the Middle East. With more and more cases of homegrown terror being exposed within our borders, though, it is increasingly dangerous to embrace a false sense of safety.

One of the most recent instances of an American citizen engaged in such a plot involves Colleen LaRose, a former resident of Pennsylvania who refers to herself as “Jihad Jane.”

Suspected of hatching a plot to kill a cartoonist who dared depict Mohammed, LaRose ultimately pleaded guilty to charges related to the conspiracy itself and false testimony made to the FBI.

Reports indicate she corresponded with at least one unidentified cohort primarily via email. Evidence presented in her trial provided a glimpse into those conversations, including the initial order assigned to LaRose.

The unnamed instigator demanded she travel to Sweden, find the cartoonist in question, and “kill [him] in a way that the whole Kufar world [will] get frightened.” Kufar is a reference to non-Muslims.

“I will make this my goal till I achieve it or die trying,” she dutifully responded.

Though there was no direct evidence LaRose got close to actually killing the artist, officials reported that she “traveled to Europe and tracked the intended target online in an effort to complete her task.”

LaRose was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the plot, leading American security and law enforcement officials to celebrate the victory.

Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin said in a statement that LaRose “is being held accountable for her efforts to provide support to terrorists and encourage violence against individuals overseas.”

According to Zane David Memeger, U.S. attorney for the Pennsylvania’s Eastern District, the case against Jihad Jane “clearly underscores the evolving nature of the terrorist threat we now face in this country.”

He said Internet connectivity has made plotting a terrorist attack much easier and, while LaRose’s “significant sentence will help protect the community from any future threat posed by the defendant, we as a nation must remain vigilant in identifying and stopping others who are susceptible to engaging in acts of homegrown violence extremism.”

We must concede the world is a very dangerous place, due in large part to the continuing threat of Islamic terrorism. For every Jihad Jane caught in the act, countless other extremists plot their own attack.

The War on Terror is one with no sign of an end; therefore, we must celebrate each victory with an eye toward the next threat.

"Loophole" from Obama's IRS: Protect your IRA or 401(k) with gold and silver... click here to get a NO-COST Info Guide >


  1. Put her on real tv and hang that piece of sh/t

  2. Bill Ayers is the father of Barack Obama. Impeach Obama for being an undercover spy for his domestic terrorist father.

    The media always says there are "deep connections" between Ayers and Obama and recently Ayers has even been fingered as the author of Dream's *from* my Father…
    http://www.freakingnews.com/pictures/48500/Obama-… (Check out how similar Obama and Ayers' body builds are in this photoshop dramatization)

    I believe this is Bill Ayers hiding behind a woman's face: http://www.youtube.com/user/amendment28now Listen to Nancy's videos, read Fugitive Days and Dreams *from* my Father and see the common themes, vocabulary, elements and entitlement continue to repeat. Nancy is the one that says that Obama's dad is white and mom is black. Full of clues and disinformation. This is what she (Bill Ayers) is up to: "Sometimes it is a joy in the very heart of hell to tell the truth. And above all, to tell it so that everybody misunderstands it. G.K. Chesterton" (Infernal Irony from http://wtpotus.wordpress.com/category/national-po… )

    Jihad Jane never had anything to worry about as long as Obutthole or any democrap was in office.I believe Obutthole is a muslim and so is Holder the AG so these ragheads have nothing to worry about.Only conservatives ,Tea Party people and republicans who aren't RINOs have to worry.

    • And don't forget–Obummer's CHIEF WHITE HOUSE ADVISOR is Valerie Jarrett, BORN IN IRAN! She has an office IN the White House, and has dinner with that wretched "First Couple" every NIGHT.

      • Edwardkoziol says:

        JRK your right I don't know how I could forget this wicked witch from Iran. I'm sure she tells the Tar Baby and his wife the Grape Ape what to do and how to do it.Similar to Huma Weiner givng Hitlary advice after taking care of Slick Willy.No wonder her husband has to troll Face Book to get young girls.

  4. Real American says:

    Obambie needs to be impeached effective immedietly and charged with treason and terrorism to United States of America

  5. The issue here is giving up our privacy to stop Muslims from killing non-Muslims. It's utter nonsense to suggest the government has a duty to protect us then allow the very ideology that spawns it to come here, thrive here and alter our way of life at our expense. Our government is growing it's power by deception.

  6. JoeDoobey says:

    I feel sorry for anyone that has to eat with the wretched "First Couple" every night, once a week, monthly, annually or ever for that matter. buttcrack obummer could make a buzzard puke and the cow he is married to could gag a maggot on a gut wagon. Not that I have anything against either of the worthless POS.
