FBI Discovers Mom Wed ISIS Fighter Online, Then Learns What She Was Going To Do To Kids

As the Islamic State continues to flounder in Syria and Iraq, more and more brainwashed teens and young adults are coming to their senses about the murderous organization’s insidious recruitment offers. These recruitment processes use the anonymity of the internet to bombard you with false promises, false threats and false acceptance. A mother-of-two from Philadelphia is facing the consequences of her actions after a U.S. District Court revealed that she was planning to abandon her children and embark on a dangerous and nonsensical journey with her husband, Abu Khalid al Amriki.

The irresponsible mother married al-Amriki during an online Skype ceremony and she has since donated thousands of dollars to the Islamic State. Now, the Philly mom, Keonna Thomas, has been charged with implicitly and explicitly supporting the genocidal extremist organization. Ms. Thomas first came to the attention of intelligence services when she was chatting with Abu Khalidal Amriki, who asked her “U probably want to do Istishadee [martyrdom operations] with me?” to which Thomas replies: “that would be amazing .... a girl can only wish.”

Because of her extremist social media posts, Ms. Thomas was already a red flag to Homeland Security. Therefore, when the Philly mom ordered a visa and plane trip to Turkey – a popular location for ISIS recruiters, Homeland Security instantly shut down Ms. Thomas’ travel plans.

Ms. Thomas’ lawyers, Kathleen, Elizabeth Toplin and Gaughan, have built their defense around the idea that Ms. Thomas didn’t realize and didn’t mean what she was saying and committing to. “Ms. Thomas was a lonely, depressed, anxiety-ridden mother who spent too much time on the internet…By attempting to relocate to ISIS-held territory and marry an ISIS fighter, she never gave ISIS anything of value – except her love,” declared the legal team.

Over the years, Ms. Thomas has supplied Islamic State fighters with money and made numerous social media posts in support of the Caliphate. Consequently, the U.S. Attorney, Jennifer Arbittier Williams, is in no mood to take a soft approach on Ms. Thomas’ case. Ms. Williams clearly wants to make an example out of Ms. Thomas, saying: “Others who might find themselves dissatisfied with life and excited by online extremists promising acceptance, a meaningful life, and piety must be shown that providing material support to terrorists translates to a very lengthy prison sentence regardless of the circumstances.”

At the moment, the U.S. District Judge is arbitrating the ongoing dispute between Ms. Thomas’ lawyers – who argued for a relatively light 4.5-year prison term – and the tough-on-terror U.S. Attorney. The vast majority of online commenters seem to be in agreement with the views of the U.S. Attorney. One commenter, CeciliaK, mirrors Willaims, writing: “That's not a valid defense in a court of law. I know she was going to Syria, but I wonder what the next step was. Her using her American citizenship to get him a green card so he could do something on US soil? Let her be made an example of.”
