Maryland Honor Student Pleads Guilty to Conspiring to Kill Cartoonist

A Maryland honor student pleaded guilty to conspiring to assist American Islamist “Jihad Jane” in a plot to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks.
Chicago Tribune reported, via ROP:

A Maryland honor student pleaded guilty Friday to conspiring to help a Pennsylvania woman known as “Jihad Jane” plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who had offended some Muslims.

Mohammed Hassan Khalid, 18, is believed to be the youngest person ever charged with terrorism in a U.S. civilian court. He faces a sentence as high as 15 years in prison.

Khalid, who moved with his family fromPakistan to suburban Baltimore in 2008, was a high school student who had been accepted on a full scholarship at prestigious Johns Hopkins University.

According to filings by U.S. prosecutors, Khalid began communicating online with fellow jihadists in the United States, Ireland and South Asia as early as age 15.

One of them was Colleen R. LaRose, the suburban Philadelphia woman who called herself “Jihad Jane.” LaRose pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks. The artist had offended some Muslims by drawing a cartoon with the head of the prophet Mohammed on a dog’s body.

U.S. officials have said the “Jihad Jane” case is unusual because it involves a green-eyed, blonde American woman who boasted that her appearance and U.S. passport allowed her to conduct terror activities without drawing suspicion.

Muslims have targeted Swedish artist Lars Vilks since he published a cartoon depicting Mohammad’s face on the body of a dog.

Vilks has received death threats since he drew this image of the prophet Mohammad with a dog’s body back in 2007.

    I guess this means another bulletin from Napolitano warning of Tea Party soccer moms, demanding increased vigilance from law enforcement on monitoring the “middle class threat.”

    TSA to announce more groping of toddlers, disabled and blondes.

  • I blame the parents. If you name your kid Mohammed, he’s probably going to be a bad person.

    Muslims are a touchy bunch…just like Obama. They like to throw violent temper-tantrums when they don’t get their way.

    I have an idea…maybe Mohammed and Obama can 69 one another…that will relieve some stress.

    This didn’t come out of the blue. I’m speculating that the parents of this “poor, disaffected youth” are well aware of what they taught him.

    What does this elite college have to say, since they embraced this “poor, disaffected youth” with a full scholarship?

    Which terrorist training center (that’s mosque to you anti-American lefties out there) did he “pray” in?

    What did his college pals say? “He’s so quiet, and smart. He is just very normal and just like us…..hates America, hates Christians, hates Jews, has murder in his goal structure and just wants love and respect for all his rich jihadist killer friends.”

    He looks to be quite “metrosexual”…not sure “prophet Mohammed” would approve…

    Would you be accepting and tolerant of cancer if it were ravaging your body? No!!!

    Islam is a cancer on civilization…

    Looks like an 8 year old drew this picture.


    Number of Muslims in the U.S. doubles since 9/11

    Those who believe in Honor Killing on trial are complicating the American judicial system.

    “Number of Muslims in the U.S. doubles since 9/11”

    And it will double again in this decade. Hope you love Shari’ah, because it’s coming to certain parts of the country. We’ll have police “no go” areas just like in Europe. Won’t that be exciting and multiculturally enriching? Life without diversity is just so boring. There aren’t any beheadings or honor killings at all! When you add those areas to all the little Mexicos and little Harares, half the country will be outside the effective control of US authorities.

    This is what race-blindness gets us, though. Muslims attacked us on 9/11, but to prove that we are not a “racist”country, we have to pretend that it was poor, oppressed people who just by COINCIDENCE were Muslim who attacked us and to further prove our “good-human-non-racist” bona fides, we had to accelerate the rate at which we approved their entry into the United States. “Look at us! Even though they hate us and want to convert or kill us all, we want these wonderful brown-skinned peoples to live amongst us and make us better peoples.” After all, Islam is a religion of peace, despite what your lying eyes tell you.

  • All Muslim foreign students should be monitored tightly- they’re not Americans, and we don’t owe them anything

    Their world view doesn’t export well for the same reason Japanese don’t by F-150s… and we don’t need it over here

  • tommy mc donnell

    another dept of colonization success story.

    Gee, I bet that Mohammed was one of those ‘moderate’ muslims we hear so much about.

    If these foreigners hate America, why do they insist on coming here?

    I always knew there was something fishy about those “honor students”.

  • A Muslim honor student? I am so not impressed. Even nuclear physicist Muslims just want to kill infidels.

    ‘A Franco-Algerian nuclear physicist was sentenced Friday to five years in jail – with one year suspended – for plotting terror attacks in France.

    Police arrested Adlene Hicheur, a 35-year-old researcher studying the universe’s birth – the Big Bang – at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in October 2009 after intercepting his emails.’

    French CERN nuke expert jailed for terror plot

    Islam is about nothing but death and it is being helped by the left.

    ‘The time has long passed when we could afford to look the other way on the extent to which subversive influences — communist and jihad-oriented Islamists — have for years been worming their way into the high councils of our government.

    So let’s say this again: When the Cold War ended, the enemies of America did not just go away. America is under attack from Communists (with both a large and small “c”) and Jihadists.

    These two threats to America (by violent means if necessary) have philosophical differences, but they are bound together by an identical ultimate goal: a one-world dictatorship where they can rule forever by the threat of death for dissenters. Recall this column reported a meeting where supposedly “intellectual thinkers” seriously contemplated the incarceration of 100 million Americans and killing 25 million of them — all in order to complete the takeover. (See “Hollywood’s red stripes” — 10/31/11.)

    No congressional committee is investigating this threat to kill Americans and rule the world — a scandal in itself.

    Priorities, please

    So why on earth should we become embroiled in an out-to-lunch debate over whether every conspirator in this plot carries a Communist Party card in his pocket? Who cares? What matters is that they are moving closer and closer to our destruction and we’re demanding that a congressman who sounds the alarm can produce photocopies of the Communist Party USA cards (complete with official membership numbers) of the plotters. Have we lost all sense of proportion?

    Earlier this month, as Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was asked by a constituent, “What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialists?” Congressman West answered that he believed “there are about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party.” When asked to name them, the freshman lawmaker replied, “It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”‘

    “high school student who had been accepted on a full scholarship at prestigious Johns Hopkins University” So this POS in the name of diversity takes a space from who. Who lost out because the nitwits at John Hopkins want to be liked.

  • Buffalobob #21

    A bright Jewish or Asian kid whom wouldn’t kill anyone lost out.

  • Francesca

    They cannot be trusted. No way to distinguish the dangerous from the others. Sad.

  • Raul

    Until the demon muslim dog is eradicated from the earth we will have no peace!

  • Raul

    Plain and simple, their agenda is to kill all of the non believers of this cult per their sick perverted mohamed! There is no such animal as a moderate muslim,their just waiting until their numbers are enough to pull off their defeat of America and christianity! They can be stopped by true patriotic Americans,but we must first defeat their leader in the WH!
