Muslim Woman Seeks Well Hung Man w/ Desire to Kill Infidels
Normally we think of radical women as the victims in a relationship. Some poor dimwitted woman converts to Islam, then finds a guy who pushes her towards radicalization. But Samantha Lewthwaite's, the "White Widow's", diaries and internet searches reveal a woman who was already radicalized and who sought out a husband who would help raise her children for martyrdom.
The same could be said of Colleen LaRose, better known as Jihad Jane. You'll recall that she met her husband on the internet where she was already active in radical circles.
I've always had the feeling that Zach Chesser -- who's rotting in jail for threatening the creators of South Park for their "blasphemy" and for trying to join al Shabaab -- was not the domineering person in the relationship. That his wife, who remains free, was the one cheering him on towards jihad.
I guess the point of this being that we shouldn't always assume that the wives in these relationships are somehow without guilt. Often, they help enable their husbands and encourage them to become terrorists. They live vicarious lives of glory through their husband's infamy.
It's not just young men that efforts at averting radicalism should be targeted, but also the young women who think these men are cool.
