Irish authorities released her, but now American authorities have arrested her. “Second ‘Jihad Jane’ charged over cartoonist Lars Vilks ‘murder plot,'” from the Times Online, April 3 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A second US woman has been charged over the alleged “Jihad Jane” terror plot to kill the Swedish cartoonist whose drawing of the prophet Mohammed triggered worldwide protests in 2007.
Mother-of-one Jamie Paulin Ramirez, 31, surrendered herself to FBI agents at Philadelphia airport, Pennsylvania, after flying in from Ireland where she had been freed earlier.
Ramirez, a US resident from Colorado, was first arrested in Ireland on suspicion of conspiring with her “friend” Colleen LaRose to murder Lars Vilks.
US prosecutors claim Ramirez was a travelling companion of LaRose, who called herself “Jihad Jane” in online forums.
It is alleged that in August 2009 LaRose emailed Ramirez urging her to join her and others in Europe at a location she described as “like a training camp as well as a home” to “to participate in and in support of violent jihad”.
Ramirez is accused of accepting the invitation and flying out to Europe in September with her six-year-old son. She has been charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and could face a 15-year sentence in prison if convicted….
