Your Daily Muslim: Samantha Lewthwaite (Part 2)

Samantha Lewthwaite, the "white widow." What loose morals she has, showing her hair!

Samantha Lewthwaite, the “white widow.” What loose morals she has, showing her hair!

As of the end of part 1, Muslim convert Samantha “Sherafiyah” Lewthwaite was on the run with al Qaeda-linked terror group al-Shabaab. Lewthwaite, whose last name is pronounced like “lose weight” with a lisp, is originally from the UK. Her parents divorced during her early adolescence, so she decided to rebel and lash out at them by converting to Islam, hoping it would bring her all the attention she was missing. However, it didn’t really work, all that happened was that she got married to a crazy Muslim who ended up acting out the theme song of Islam (Ke$ha’s “Blow”) aboard a bus.

Now, Lewthwaite is with al-Shabaab, believed to be one of their main financiers and weapons importers. When she isn’t hanging around seventh-century savages with AK-47’s, she’s on Twitter, trying to bring the 7th century to the social media world. She often posts crude rants against the “kuffar” (infidels), and has even criticized other jihadis who she didn’t feel were committed enough to the cause. However, unlike her, some of those jihadis have since given their lives for the cause while she generally sits at a computer. However, that all changed on September 21, 2013.

Lewthwaite felt like she needed to take the advice her parents had given her through her last name, and felt that sitting at a computer wouldn’t help her achieve her weight loss goals. According to educated speculation from Kenyan authorities, she and several of her al-Shabaab BFFs decided to plot an attack together. The target was the Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya.

It is unknown whether or not Lewthwaite actually went in, but an individual matching her description was spotted among the attackers. The jihadis stormed the mall, shooting anyone who could not recite the Qur’an or name the mother of Muhammad, pigs be upon him. They let all the Muslim shoppers go, but shot all the kuffar to death. One of the attackers was reported as saying, “All Muslims leave… we only want to kill non-Muslims.” Between Muslims and innocents, there have been 68 deaths in the incident so far, and there are still currently many gunmen (including possibly Lewthwaite) inside the mall, with an unknown number of hostages. The assault does seem to match Lewthwaite’s M.O., since she perpetrated a grenade attack in 2012 and there were numerous grenades thrown in the mall.

An al-Shabaab Twitter account (yes, they have electricity in Kenya and Somalia) tweeted: “Sherafiyah lewthwaite aka samantha is a vrave [sic] lady! were happier to have her in our ranks!” Well, if the security forces have their way, she’ll soon be among the ranks of the not-so-dearly departed or the prison population. However, if the reports are false and Lewthwaite isn’t in the mall, there’s no telling where she will show up next, or how many will die in her next plot.

  2. Must hand it to you YDM:
    you posted the story of this looney tune way before she made the al-shabaab celeb list.

  3. Seems to be a common thread among converts: come from a broken home.

  4. Seems to be a common thread among converts: usually come from a broken home.

  5. I’ve never heard that people of some religions are preferred over people of other religions or no religion.
    Could it be to do with other factors? If e.g. members of community A are generally well off but people of community B have a large share of people struggling to make ends meet than it would be eaiser to target people of group B because their youngsters are likely to respond better to gifts and other special treatments to attract them. Furthermore the atmosphere in homes where parents have financial worries tends to be a bit more tense, so the promise of new friends and harmony in a world-wide community appears to be more attractive to people from homes where the atmosphere is tense.

    The dislike that many muslims harbor for certain other groups still plays a role but it’s likely not to be the only factor.

    What really makes me angry is the refusal to accurately refer to the offenders if they happen to be minorities. If the offender is muslim he/she is labelled as “Asian” which is not entirely wrong given that many of the UK muslims are Pakistani or their families are from Pakistan. But on the rare occasion that the offender happens to be Sikh or Hindu he/she is often then referred to by the religion. So whoever happens to responsible for something negative to do with immigrants the press doesn’t hesitate to smear Hindus & Sikhs.

    • I agree 100% about the labeling – the fact that the media uses the word “Asian” is both intellectually disingenuous and problematic. For one, race has nothing to do with these crimes. The reason the offenders are perpetrating the acts is not because of their ethnic background, but because of their religion and warped sense of morality.

      In turn, the press is creating unnecessary (misplaced) animosity toward groups in the immigrant community through the use of the word “Asian” – you don’t read about Taiwanese child sex grooming operations, yet Taiwanese are encompassed by “Asian.” The intentional omission of offenders’ motives for the sake of being PC is enabling two problems: one, the political far-left willfully remains with the wool over its eyes about the epidemic of Muslim violence, and two, inserting “Asian” in place of “Muslim” frames the issue in a racial context when the issue is religion. This enables Muslims to more easily pull the race card when confronted about their misbehavior.

  6. unfortunately news on Loose Weight again. there’s at least a rumour going on that Loose Weight lost some weight, changed hair colour and apparently had some cosmetic surgery to alter her appearance.- Though I’m not sure how and when she could have gone for plastic surgery

    the upside is that she is believed to be hiding in an area with an impressive population of snakes & scorpions, so maybe the security forces won’t need to intervene to stop Loose Weight.

  7. […] investigators. Tell that to everyone who interviewed suspects’ family members. Tell that to Samantha Lewthwaite, whose husband blew himself up that day. That’d really piss her off, telling her that her […]

  8. […] Samantha Lewthwaite – British convert to Islam and widow of 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay. Lewthwaite is believed to be involved in the deadly jihad attack on the Nairobi Westgate mall as well as numerous other attacks, and has worked with terror group al-Shabaab. […]
