Following up on last week’s Monica Witt story, we have another young American, born and raised on U.S. soil all her life, graduated from an Alabama high school, who, using the cell phone her father had given her as a present for attending college, fled to Syria to join ISIS. The self-styled Syrian caliphate has pledged to eradicate America from the face of the earth, and Miss Hoda Muthana certainly seems to have similar ambitions. In 2015 she posted the following on Twitter:
“Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!” she once wrote, according to The Guardian. “Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day … Kill them.”
Now, she’s begging to be allowed to return to the United States, the country whose citizens she eagerly urged to commit suicide less than 4 years ago. Apparently life under ISIS wasn’t as liberating as she imagined the day she told her parents, “I’m going on a field trip” and never returned….
