This post is a twofer. First, I’m happy to share the news that the American wannabe jihadist Colleen LaRose has been given a ten-year prison term for conspiring to murder the Swedish artist Lars Vilk.
Via the BBC:
Colleen LaRose, 50, who dubbed herself Jihad Jane, admitted in 2011 she sought to kill [Swedish artist] Lars Vilks and recruited others to the cause.
She faced up to a life term but a judge reduced her sentence in part because she co-operated with investigators.
“I don’t want to be into jihad no more,” LaRose said at the hearing.
Mr Vilks was targeted after he drew a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog.
