That good old Religion of Peace thing can be pretty alluring, as a recent convert to the religion can attest.
Her devotion? How about heading to Iraq and strapping on a bomb.
SPIEGEL ONLINE has learned that German intelligence agencies have prevented three German women from travelling to Iraq in recent weeks. The women, who have close contacts to the Islamist scene in Germany and at least one whom has converted to Islam, came to the attention of intelligence agencies after one of them had announced on an Internet site that she intended to blow herself and her child up in Iraq.Of course we have heard that terrorist intentions are an affront to Islam and that such antics insult all Muslims, apparently, as much as schrapnel does individual ones.
After the Web posting were spotted, Germany's domestic and foreign intelligence agencies mounted an intense search for the three women. One of them was located in Berlin, the other two are believed to come from southern Germany. The Berlin woman's child was taken away from her and she has been put in a psychiatric clinic. The two other women were also prevented from leaving Germany. One of them is also believed to have a child.
