It transcends borders, nationalities, continents ...... the ideology trumps all. Which is why I find it so amusing when news reports identify the country (Moroccan man, Pakistani, Algerian, blah, blah) because their nationality is as relevant as the color of their shoes.
Jihad is jihad is jihad, but any other description is still jihad.
‘Jihad Jane’ Conspirators Indicted in Philadelphia for Aiding Terror Plot Bloomberg
Two people were indicted in Philadelphia on charges they supported terrorists in the “Jihad Jane” terror plot.
Ali Charaf Damache, 46, an Algerian man who resided in Ireland, and Mohammad Hassan Khalid, 18, a Pakistani citizen residing in Maryland, with one count of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. Damache was also charged with one count of attempted identity theft to facilitate an act of international terrorism, Philadelphia U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger said today in a statement.
“Today’s indictment, which alleges a terrorist conspiracy involving individuals around the globe who connected via the Internet -- including a teenager and two women living in America -- underscores the evolving nature of violent extremism,” Lisa Monaco, assistant U.S. attorney general for national security, said in the statement.
Damache, also known as “theblackflag” and Khalid allegedly helped Colleen LaRose, also known as Jihad Jane, provide logistical and financial support and recruitment services in a plot to kill overseas.
Jihad Jane was American.
