Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands her new, peaceful religion. Yet no mosques of Islamic schools have any programs in place to teach converts to reject this understanding of Islam that they ostensibly oppose.

DENVER (CBS4) – An Arvada teenager who wanted to wage jihad with ISIS and move to the Middle East has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.

FBI agents caught Shannon Conley, 19, at the Denver International Airport trying to board a flight to Turkey. The teen, who has been dubbed “Jihad Shannon,” wanted to marry a Syrian man and then help with the fight against infidels.

Conley had stated plans to work as a cook or nurse’s aide at an ISIS camp after marrying a man in Syria she met online.

The FBI says they took extraordinary measures to try to get Conley to rethink those plans. They visited her often, suggested other alternatives to express her beliefs, and even asked her parents to talk her out of it.

But when that didn’t work and they caught her instead trying to board a flight to the Middle East in April to reportedly join terrorists, Conley was arrested.

She later pled guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Conley’s lawyer said the girl was misled while exploring her faith….

How strange for a woman to convert to a religion that despises women...

Teresa, I've wondered about that one, myself. It must be that the girl/woman has so little self-esteem that she's willing to subject herself to a masochistic existence while coating herself with celestial glory.

Poor, misguided girl.

I've always wondered that too, Teresa W. She sure is not very smart, i agree with Allen again.

I'm trying to figure out what is worse, being indoctrinated by republicans, christians or jihadists. Maybe we shouldn't let ourselves be indoctrinated by anyone. Ya think?

If you really don't know, you ought to go live in an Islamic country for a couple of years. I think it might be quite a learning experience! And when you come back, you can tell us all about it.

Poor immature girl. She was a victim of brainwashing .,let's hope she can be rehabilitated.

This young woman was deceived, manipulated. But I agree with Jason, that is nothing more than what Faux Noise aka Fox does with their lies, deceit and manipulation. Too many Americans accept Faux Noise as "gospel" without thinking about anything they say. US prison will be no cake walk either, and I suspect that she will have challenges as other inmates find out why she is incarcerated.

For those of us who have many sources and who have been studying the issue for a number of years, this unfortunately is what there is. Islam without Fox has been responsible for the deaths of tens of millions for the past 1400 years.

What is so frightening is that there are those who find freedom so oppressive that they choose to take on an oppression that costs ones life to leave.

this is a fairly typical case of a young impressionable mind identifying with the biggest buy in the schoolyard in the hope he'll keep her safe. oh boy, would she have been surpassed. american jail will be much safer for her.
