Like many liberals before her, Michigan resident Nicole Lynn Mansfield converted to Islam when she married a Muslim man. However, unlike most liberals who just do it for the attention, Mansfield went all the way, adopting the Islamic ninja costume and traveling to Syria to wage jihad. She didn’t make it back.
Liberals and other apologists for Islam claim that jihad entails an inner struggle, that it has nothing to do with holy war. Somehow this American convert, like thousands of other converts worldwide, got the wrong idea… unless, of course, the liberals are wrong. Mansfield, likely through her husband, had gotten involved with al Qaeda-linked jihadis, and thus she made the decision to fly to Syria to begin her jihad.
She didn’t last long, likely due to her above-average girth making her a large target. She was shot dead by members of president Bashar al-Assad’s forces, along with two al Qaeda-linked militants from the UK who were accompanying her. Mansfield is the first American casualty in the Syrian civil war.
