Indiana Grandmother, a Muslim Convert, Being Investigated for Possible Terror Link

Woman in Indiana ("grandmother" is a bit misleading -- she's in her mid 40s) marries German militant, makes Jihad video, posts online about wanting Jihad against the "terrorist US government", then wonders why she's hassled on her biweekly overseas trips to see her husband in Germany. Jailarity, no doubt, will soon ensue.

Curiously, she claims to hold many of the same beliefs held dear by some ATS members, though for obviously different reasons. I'm not sure how she's "defending the Constitution" by calling for a Jihad against her homeland, but she sure thinks she is.

First thing that comes to my mind is that the FBI/CIA has somehow created this 'jihad grandmother', another 'domestic terrorist', so now anyone who shares her anti-establishment views (9/11 is an inside job, the US exports terror) can be closer linked to being a terrorist.

If you think that's far fetched look at all the recent botched 'terrorist events' and who groomed the terrorists - i'll give you a clue they're in the first sentence I typed.

Well, the Muslim converts certainly do seem to be the craziest. And why in God’s name would ANY woman voluntarily convert to Islam … must be some kind of masochist.

I don't know, she comes off to me as just another brainwashed nut. Lord knows that we've plenty of them, I don't know that the government would need to be producing them. It's an interesting point about 9/11, though -- I suspect that the number of Muslims who would claim conspiracy is higher than one would think, particularly among American Muslims.

I believe it happens quite often.

Recently Tony Blair's sister in law converted

Grandmother isn't misleading if she has grandchildren. I just hope she doesn't live in my neighborhood

Just a side note, I noted many years ago that anyone who is converted to a differant ideology tends to be much more fanatical than those who are "naturalized" in it. This is because of the extreme amount of convincing (brain-washing) needed to convert someone from one ideology to another.

Well, misleading in the sense that many see "grandmother" and think "frail old lady with grey hair who bakes cookies." If I was conspiratorially minded (which I am not,) I would suggest this sort of thing is headlined the way that it is to deflect from criticism when you hear about old ladies being searched for weapons at the airport.

"How dare they! Who would believe that little old lady could be a terrorist?"

"Come on, didn't you hear about the Grandma in Indiana who declared Jihad on America?"
