American teen wears hijab in court as she pleads guilty to charges she tried to join ISIS in Syria


A 19-year-old suburban Denver woman who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help the Islamic State militant group in Syria.

The article mentions that she converted to Islam last year and that the judge ordered her to undergo a psychological evaluation before he sentences her.

May justice be served and may she be converted to Catholicism.


The accused made drawings of a protestant church; alarming.


Even more alarming, a protestant church where previously, there had been a shooting in 2007.

sounds like she has some issues…if you read the article…she tried out several religions before settling on Islam…now why would a woman choose islam (willingly) without learning arabic and reading their holy book? I think the judge is right to have her undergo an evaluation…there is something deeper here.
