#4 No question a horrific life (if all the charges are true). Still doesn't justify becoming a jihadi.

#5 Now she can have a sense of belonging to another large community:

Convicts.

#6 That could really screw up your head. Becoming a jihadist and working out your problems on someone else is not the answer either. Should have found a shrink to work out her $hit.

#7 Finding abused people with low self-esteem and then giving them a sense of purpose is the simple process for home grown jihad as well as gangs, drug smuggling, prostitution etc... We have our share of these sad types of people in America, this is where we should be looking for jihadists recruiting efforts. So we can stop it. She, this Jane woman, should have done a lot of things; getting help would have never lent her to being exposed to these extremists. But then it's a series of bad decisions that got her to where she was. Its more sad than angering...

#8 Blacks in prisons with Muzzie chaplains are a good garden for jihadis, too.

#11 What about -- supposedly -- all those Hispanics and whites who've been seeing the benefits of throwing in with the Mohammedans, Frank G.? We've seen a number of stories of their arrests here at Rantburg over the years. Is the frequency overwhelmingly in the African-American direction rather than otherwise?

#12 tiny group, and mostly notorious because of their non-black status. How many non-black and non-Arab Muslims are you aware of?

#14 TW,
Islam has been making inroads in the Black community (convict and non-convict). Currently ~10% of Blacks are muslim.

#16 The funny thing is, and one I can't get them not understanding, is that didn't the Prophet say something along the lines that the Black have the head of an ass and is good for nothing but slavery? (Note - I am not saying this - *he* did!) I believe it's in the Koran somewhere...

#17 Thank you, gentlemen. I stand corrected.

OCCD, were your black inmates Nation of Islam or Sunni?

Frank G, as I recall the largest number of Muslims in the U.S. are from the Indian subcontinent, then Southeast Asia, then Nation of Islam. Most Arabs in this country are Christians of one sort or another. Iranians divide between Muslims, Jews, and Baha'i. I've probably met some of each over the years, but not enough of any one group to draw personal conclusions, except that the Palestinians at my university were unpleasantly aggressive.

#18 I wonder how many of the macing were Muslim?

#19 Arabs and blacks, TW. It's an unpleasant reality, and un-PC. I take exception to your reference that most "Arabs in this country are Christians..." You are referring to Chaldeans for the most part and they have been non-violent, but in east San Diego not non-criminal (betting, drugs, etc.). I doubt they are the majority of Arabs imported unless if you exclude Somalis, Sudanese, etc.

Fine, bitch idiot. Now you can belong with the other felons - IN JAIL.

Far as I'm concerned, it should be under the jail.

Lebanese, actually. They've been coming over since the turn of the last century, and assimilated beautifully. That horrid but much-loved poet Khalil Ghibran was one of them.
