A 20-year-old American-born woman of Yemeni descent who ran away from her Alabama home to join the Islamic State is trying to use social media to incite other young American Muslims to join her – or bring bloody jihad to the American homeland.
In lengthy profile by BuzzFeed News that could serve as a wake up call to Muslim American families and Americans in general, the woman talked about how she was radicalized over the Internet, how she fooled her parents and cashed in her college tuition money for airfare to Turkey and then traveled to Syria.
In the BuzzFeed profile she was identified only as Hoda, but the Birmingham News revealed her full identity, Hoda Muthana, a 2013 graduate of Hoover High School in Hoover, Ala.
After arriving in Syria, Muthana married an Islamic State terrorists from Australia who was killed in a Jordanian airstrike launched after the Islamists burned a caged Jordanian pilot to death in a video that horrified the world.
But none of that slaughter seemed to have diminished the American Hoda’s ardor for Islamic jihad. While the Twitter account she was using, @ZumarulJannah ,has since been suspended, her messages to the young Muslims she left behind in America were uncompromising.
“Soooo many Aussies and Brits here,” she wrote in one Twitter posting. “But where are the Americans, wake up u cowards.”
Muslims who couldn’t make it to Islamic State territory, she tweeted using a derogatory term for non-Muslims, should, “Terrorize the kuffar at home.”
“Americans wake up!” she wrote in a Twitter posting March 19. “Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping! Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.”
Hoda’s father is a naturalized American citizen who fled bloodshed in Yemen to become a refugee in the United States 20 years ago. He’s done well enough here to raise five children, including a daughter who decided to use her college money to fly to some Islamist State hellhole in Syria to post invective and incite violence against the country that took her parents in.
Despite his daughter’s actions, Mohammed Muthana, remains grateful to the United States.
“I don’t know how to say it, but honestly, it could happen anywhere,” he said. “In America or outside of America. But there’s really no safe place and positive place to raise your family as here in this country. We have full freedom to participate our religion, go to mosque, do our prayers and listen to scholars and read books and come back to our homes and live a free life. This is the best place for family. It’s a dream for everybody, and it’s still a dream, it’s going to be a dream for all of us.”
