The arrest of Jihad Jane was big news. Now there’s more on some of the other people involved in the plot to murder Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks. A woman from Colorado, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, was one of those arrested in Ireland in connection with the Vilks plot. Paulin-Ramirez apparently recently converted to Islam and went to New York to marry a Muslim man she met online. The pair were part of a group of people arrested in Ireland in connection to the Jihad Jane murder plot.
There seems to be a common thread Between Paulin-Ramirez and LaRose. Both women seemed to be lonely, unable to maintain stable relationships, and eager to connect to someone or something that promised them purpose. Islam is a very elegant religion, and it would be very easy for someone seeking to use Islam to recruit people to terrorism to convert women like these.
Robert Stacy McCain comments on the story, mentioning the lonely hearts aspect of the case. Perhaps by the end of her fourth marriage Paulin-Ramirez was getting desparate?
The Lonely Conservative also comments, focusing instead on the fact that Paulin-Ramirez has a young son who was given a Muslim name and dragegd along to Ireland for the ride.
