The 20-year-old woman from Hoover who abandoned her family and fled to Syria a few months ago to join the radical Islamic group called ISIS was quiet and reserved in the halls of Hoover High School, a former classmate said.
Hoda Muthana, who graduated from Hoover High School in 2013 and went on to study business at the University of Alabama at Birmingham before skipping the country in November, was not someone her former classmates suspected would have joined up with a violent Islamic group, said Jordan LaPorta, who graduated with her.
Muthana, who seemed harmless in high school, has shared violent contempt for the United States and non-Muslims in posts she made on Twitter under a different name.
“Terrorize the kuffar [derogatory term for non-Muslims] at home,” she tweeted. “Americans wake up!” “Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping! Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.”
It’s that kind of talk that is most shocking to her former classmates.
“To know that someone from your own city can get involved in something so evil, it’s an eye-opener,” LaPorta said. “When you hear about these things on the news, it seems like just an overseas problem. It really opens up your eyes that there are people in this country that sympathize with people like that and think it’s OK … I don’t think anybody saw this in her.”
Really? Look at the above picture. Which student would you have chosen as most likely to adhere to the sharia and/or support jihad?
She’s not the first Muslim living in Alabama to act on Allah’s commands: Former Muslim Student Association president from Alabama identified as al Qaeda-linked Somali terrorist.
