It's probably the Niqab which threw them off.

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

Submitted by Anon (United States), Nov 22, 2018 at 09:01

Whereas stupid people regard the Niqab as a symbol of Islamic extremism and likely support for Jihadist attacks, wise and informed people are keenly aware that wearing the Niqab suggests the individual is a devout practitioner of Islam, which as is well known, is a very peaceful religion. True, those devout Muslims all too often support Jihadist groups which target people in Israel, but that is no reason to suppose a significant percentage of them would ever target good, decent individuals in the West.
