Momena Shoma: Betrayal of the worst kind

Reader comment on item: Melbourne's Petite, Shy, Honors-Student Jihadi

Submitted by Prashant, Nov 26, 2018 at 22:34

Dear Dr Pipes: If the account of the Momena Shoma's actions is correct then what she did was the betrayal of the worst kind: she attempted to kill an innocent man who was actually helping her for selfless reasons. There cannot be a more depraved action than this.

I hope it some how gets proven that Momena Shoma is insane with some actual mental disease. Because, otherwise, we will like to know what circumstances can lead a sane human to act in such a debased manner. Even if we grant that ISIS propaganda videos can make people act this way, what exactly is in those videos. What is the justification?

According to some accounts Muhammad ordered the murders of an old man and a woman for acting against Islam. Most Islamic scholars point out that events leading to those murders did not happen or evidence for those is weak. But does ISIS some how justifies those actions and uses them to incite people. What should a person be told so s/he is ready to kill her own benefactor completely unprovoked? What was Momena Shoma told by those people who misguided her?

I sincerely hope that this woman is insane or the reported events did not take place.
