    Who says this woman was a ‘lone terrorist’? It was thought that ‘Jihad Jane’ (Coleen LaRose) was a lone terrorist, but she was in a network.

    To be sure, this woman read or heard a sermon about jihad that inspired her to ‘Kill the disbelievers wherever you find them.’
    Such indiscriminate killers are already on the streets of all Western countries and getting ready to strike. What’s under those hijabs? Count on many of them carrying knives. They will strike without warning.
