Web Weaves Evidence Against 'Jihad Jane'

By    |   Wednesday, 10 March 2010 02:34 PM

Internet postings provide much of the evidence against a Pennsylvania woman charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and to kill a Swedish target.

Colleen LaRose, also known as "Jihad Jane," is accused of using a YouTube account for jihad recruiting. Those YouTube pages have been taken down.
The Jawa Report, however, contends that LaRose had another YouTube account under the name "mzwiidkat." That claim has not been corroborated.

An Internet search, however, reveals that this same person is listed as a “friend” on YouTube's Anwar Awlaki Lectures Channel. Awlaki is the American-born cleric now living in Yemen and considered a charismatic influence over jihadis.

Awlaki was in communication with Nidal Malik Hasan before the Fort Hood, Texas, massacre and is suspected of encouraging failed Christmas Day airline bomb suspect Umar Abdulmutallab.

The Jawa Report also discovered an account on another video site, Daily Motion, under the name FatimaLaRose, a name listed as an alias in LaRose’s indictment. In addition, the account holder describes herself as a 46-year-old woman, which is LaRose's age.

LaRose's icon on the Daily Motion site shows a black flag with “Support Our Troops” above the Shahada, the Muslim testimony of faith, and an AK-47. As Naeem Muhammad Khan, a Muslim extremist living in Canada, has said, “Support Our Troops” means backing the mujahideen, or Muslim soldiers of God.

FatimaLaRose’s “favorites” and “playlist” chronicle a disturbing tally of videos that probably are material to encourage those of pre-existing jihadist bent to engage in terrorism. These and similar videos often appear on terrorist and pro-terrorist Web sites. The videos show:
  • Attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq (Iraq Sniper, IED Attack, RKG3 Thrown On An American B6 Armored Vehicle)
  • Jihadists in Afghanistan, Turkestan, Algeria, Uzbekistan, Chechnya (the Wolves of Chechen) and Palestine
  • Statements of Jihadist leaders, including Osama bin Laden
  • The suffering of Muslims around the world, including at Guantanamo and in Gaza (Bloodshed and Anarchy in Gaza).
According to the indictment, an unnamed co-conspirator instructed LaRose nearly a year ago to "go to Sweden . . . find location of [Resident of Sweden, hereafter referred to as "RS #1"] . . . and kill him . . . this is what i say to u."
LaRose agreed to do so, saying, "i will make this my goal till i achieve it or die trying."

The co-conspirator then told LaRose to kill the target "in a way that the whole Kufar [non-believer] world get frightened." In August, she went to Europe to receive training and try to carry out the murder.

Although LaRose was arrested in October, the indictment was unsealed only Tuesday. Also Tuesday, police in Ireland arrested seven men accused of plotting to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks. His 2007 caricature of the Prophet Muhammad as a dog made Vilks a target of jihadist death threats.

Al-Qaida placed a bounty on his head, the Guardian reports, "with a 50% bonus if Vilks was 'slaughtered like a lamb' by having his throat cut."
